It consisted principally in good advice and vla11ble hints as to musical education and Si the good influences it had upon not only cl the ildiividu:l, but also upon the family bt happiness and independencee and conse- tu quentl' upon any coimunlity at large. v Mrs. Rolfe acquitted herself with great ti credit, and especially sou when it is consid ered the short time she had for practice th and rehersal before the concert.

To ranchmen, freightt;rs, and all persons who wish to either purchaseor see a splen did line ,f goods in that department of mnercihanide, the saddler shop of AMr. Jos. Sullivan is w"ell worth seeing. IHe has on hand the largest stock of saddlers' goods in Montana, and everything in his estab lishnent is made there, and all the work is made to order and warranted, as is not the case with t1hat made in the peniten tiaries. The making of stock saddles is a specialty with him, and he has all styles of Live Oak trees to select from. He al ways has three or four of the best workmen that can be obtained at work for him, who are constantly turning out the best kind of work. Ilis-stock of light and heavy har ness is not to be equalled anywhere. He has now alarge assortment of "quirts," black snake whips, line Mexican bits and spurs, of all grades and qualities, on their way from San Francisco, and which are ex pe2ted to arrive tol Our Butte Letter. of BUTTE, M. T., Sept. 12, 1882. ich Your correspondent arrived here on Id- Sunday night considerably the worse from ise a three days and two night's stage ride, :he the latter part of which, from Helena to he Butte via the Boulder route, was anything 32, but pleasant. I found the "Silver City" to somewhat dull, which is accounted for by of three causes. The failure of the Bell mine, ad the break in the price of wood, the cutting in- of which gave employment to from 1,800 by to 2,000 men, and was caused by the mine and mill owners shipping in coal when the le- wood men raised the prices, and the con troversy over the townsite. The latter in has had the effect of stopping a great deal irt of building that was being done and pre ch venting a great deal that was contemplated. m Brick is cheap ahd plenty, $7.00 a thou sand being the ruling price. Still, not if, withstanding the above named causes to militate against anything like a so-called S. "boom" in the town, the merchants are be doing a fair business, and gambling and ne variety shows are doing a good business, lit which, by the way, is a sure index to the of prosperity and plentifulness of money in I Ig our western towns. To retrogade a little, r- I met Mr. Jno.F. Patterson in the Prickly I ie Pear canyon with a band of some 3,000 ·r fine looking sheep which he purchased in e- Deer Lodge county and is driving to his of ranch in Choteau county. hI I also met Mr. J. II. Emery here who s has completed arrangements with some t is gentlemen to put a large saw mill in the ;r re vicinity of the Barker mines, thus insur- f n ing the miners and ranchmen in that dis- n t- trict a supply of lumber. They will start y immediately for the Barker District via e Benton and will get their mill running in as short time as possible. Butte has had two narrow escapes from . being ravaged by tire within the past week A e and the town was only saved from destruc- c tion by the prompt action of the fire brig- i r ade and citizens. ft Great damage has been done by forest r fires which, owing to the extreme dryness of the season, have burnt up a great deal of the wood in the Park addition to the standing timber, and if a rain does not or come soon to extinguish the fires the fuel p, problem may become almost as difficult to E solve here as it is Benton, where a small Cl fortune is invested every winter to keep one from freezing. The narrow gauge is finished to Warm Springs and the intention now is to have so' it in operation to Deer Lodge by the first fit of October. The main travel to Helena is by the way of Deer Lodge, although the Boulder route is getting its share of the trade. This part of the Territory, and in fact the whole route from Benton to Butte, has experienced the same extreme dry, co! hot weather that has afflicted Benton and surrounding country, and the dust on the road is simply indescribable. I shall go to Deer Lodge Thursday night and will write you a letter from there. ! H. PIS Prairie Fire-Shorter Road-Thanks. Monsieur Jean Baptiste Pichette, of the firm of Pichette & Bro., from Big Spring at Reed's Fort on Boyles creek, arrived in e Benton last Saturday night from the Ju dith Basin, from whence he started for this place on last Wednesday. He says r that a force of from thirty to fifty men, composed of the inhabitants of the vicinity, after hard work in fighting the fire for two days, finally succeeded in putting it out. Si He thinks the fire has burned for five or six miles along the left side of Judith river coming to Benton, and then crossed the river and burned four or five miles on the right side of it. He thinks it was still burning when he left the road, but could not assure himself of that fact on account of the density of the smoke. He further says that Mr.John Caruthers is working at o Arrow creek, and will entirely complete y the road over Arrow creek hill within the e next ten days, and in doing so,Mr. Caruth e ers told Mr. Pichette, the road will make y the distance S~_ miles shorter than it is at g present by going the way of La Motte's. d Mr. Pichette, in this connection, also wish es to thank Mr Caruthers for his kindness to him when he lost his horses, last Thurs day night, for furnishing him with one to s come to Benton. The Fire Fiend. t Mr. Samuel Pepin, of Assinaboin, ar e rived in Benton last Saturday evening, He says that lie has been fighting fires in the Bear Paw mountains for the last five t days, which has burned over the whole country from the north side of Beaver to Snake creek, and from the head of Beaver creek to the Missouri river, and was still burning when he left the post on last Sat urday morning. The fire has destroyed a very large amount of valuable standing a timber, consisting of pine and fir trees, probably to the amount of three or four thousand cords. On the opposite side of Milk river from the post, and from oppo- a site the mouth of Beaver creek to Red Cou lee on Cypress road, the prairie has been totally burned to the north fork of Milk river. Large Sheep sales, Mr. C. N. Dickinson, manager of Messrs, Paris Gibson & Son's ranch up the Mis. souri river, eight miles from Benton, and called the "Pueblo Island Ranch," states that the Messrs. Gibson have sold a great many fine thoroughbred Merino bucks lately, and that the business is improving in such sales. All of those sold had been imported from Vermont and England. Their sales were made to the Star Sheep Company at Fort Assinaboin, George Pat terson on the Shonkin, Bayliss & Hay of Wolf creek, Messrs. Edgar, Wait and H. M. Parchen of the Judith Basin. And they have also sold a valuable consignment of Shropshire bucks to the Smith brothers of Martinsdale, and have yet on hand for sale a few more Lincoln and imported Southdown bucks. How the Big Firms are Selling Goods. Messrs. G. P. Clark and James H. Con- 01 nelley, the former from his ranch two fr4 miles from Reed's Fort, and the latter from w, the head of Warm Spring Coulee, returned thi home yesterday loaded with goods for their own use.
