*p. FIERCE FIGHT.
A Terrible Air Pounding' Match
to- Which Took Place Across the
at River To-Day.
& There was a ripple of excitement about
noon to-day, caused by the announcement
;er that John Gorman, yclept "Peg Leg" and
u_ Peter Moon, otherwise "Windy," were to
na cross the river at 12 o'clock and fight three
rounds, Marquis of Gooseberry rules, to
decide which of the two was to crow over
he the other hereafter. When the belige
ill rants made their appearance there was a
rush for the ferry and quite a crowd ac
companied the two men across the river.
mA place was selected just over the ridge
i and the men peeled for the contest.
When time was called they shook hands
and started in on one of the most wonder
ty ful sparring contests on record. They
le mauled the air black and blue. It was
)y positively shameful the way the atmos
phere was abused for the space of a second
dl or two, but "Windy" relieved it by drag
s, ging "Peg" to the ground and burying his
s. ear in the sand. This concluded round
es one amidst loud and boisterous applause.
In the second round both men still
seemed to have it in for the atmosphere,
which began to show punishment. "Win
le dy" pressed "Peg" hard and the latter
I dropped to escape what appeared to be a
blow coming. He laid there until time
was called and of course was not hit.
"Peg" here began to get enthusiastic and
wanted gore, and when the men were
called up for the third round
te he pressed the fighting. He
let up on the air and commence giving it
to "Windy," who responded as best he
could. They made a regular war dance
e for a time and then "Peg" dropped again,
- after taking a piece out of "Windy's" face
- with his claws. This was first blood for
"Peg." and as "Windy" declined to have
anything more to do with the affair, the
a fight was given to "Peg," who then de
ir livered an oration upon heroes of the prize
. ring and slugging generally as he should
y ered his shirt and started for the ferry.
e The fight furnished considerable sport
1. fcr those who went over, and the result
seemed to please "Peg" very much.

He writes up the Country from the
Musselshell to Fort Benton--His
Im pressions and Opinions.
LAKE STATION, M. T., October 1.
There is but little to attract the atten
tion of the traveler from Billings to the
River Metropolis. Between the Mussel
shell and Careless creek it is but a succes
sion of bleak hills. deep and rocky coulees,
and a fair representation of what is called
Bad Lands, covered with a never-ending
supply of bunch grass with a spring here
and there along the foot hills, making it
a splendid range for stock. Fifteen miles
from Lavina, Power & Co. have built a
stage barn and dwelling house for the stock
tender, and these buildings and the big
hay stacks perched up on a bleak hillside
among scrub pines and rocks is the only
thing that breaks the monotony of a thirty
five mile drive until
is reached. Here I found P. I. Moulsheep
ranch, one of the best I have seen in my
travels through Montana. This is the post
office of Bercial. Although the country is
sparsely settled*in the immediate vicinity
a large amount of mail is handled at this
office, as the settlers on Flat Willow creek
and along the foot of the Snowies are com
pelled to come here for mail, a distance of
trom 20 to 50 miles. A movement is on
foot to establish a mail route from Bercail
to connect with the Junction City and
Maginnis mail route. A petition is in cir
culation and has a large number of sign
ers. There are at least thirty settlers on
Flat Willow creek and along the foot of
the mountaiis who are entirely cut off
from mail service. This route, if establish
ed, would not only be a feeder to the
Benton and Billings stage road but would
be of importance to Benton, as it would
bring us no small amount of trade that
now goes to the railroad over the Junction
City stage road. Mr. Moul is building for
himself and family a large substantial two
story residence. He has been located on
Careless creek for three years, being the
pioneer settler, and has devoted his time
and attention to improving his ranch,
fencing, building stables and sheds for his
sheep, but this winter proposes to have
not only a comfortable but commodious
habitation for himself and family and ac
commodations for travelers. Leaving
Moul's, another twenty miles stretch of
bleak, dreary country had to be crossed to
reach Oka. hetter known n:
THE JUDITH GAP.
While there I witnessed the dipping
of a band of 6,500 wethers just drfven here
by Oscar Stevens from Washington Ter
ritory. Mr. Stevens has been offered and
refused $3.50 per head for the band. lHe
has some 200 tons of hay put up at Black
' Butte close to Fort Maginnis, and will
winter there and sell or ship in the spring
after shearing time. They are a fine lot of
sheep and will shear, I am told, at least
e seven pounds each. A. G. White, a ship
per of thoroughbred bucks, who makes his
headquarters at the Gap while in the Ter
e ritory, has about 150 head of bucks that he
claims to be the best ever brought to Mon
e tana. Mr. White has shipped some 500
t head fiom northern Illinois in the past two
years, and finds that the demand for a
fine grade of Merino thoroughbreds is con
stantly on the increase, as sheep men find
the difference in the yield of wool more
r than pays for the expense of breeding to
I found the genial Judge Bar
rows, as hale, hearty and pen-handed as of
old. Ubet might be called an oasis in the
desert. For the weary,hungry traveler it is
indeed a relief to reach there. Judge Bar
t rows not only has one of the garden spots
of Montana, in the way of a ranch, but by
far the best stopping place on the Judith.
His ample stabling accommodations where
horses receive every care and the finest of
blue joint hay rival the noted Park or
Crawford stables at Benton. His hotel
is fitted up not only tastily but extrav
gantly; spring beds with their snowy cov
ering invite rest and repose. Mrs. Bar
rows presides over the dining room, and
her table is noted throughout
the Territory for the good
things it is loaded with. This is the
junction of the Martinsdale, MIaginnis, and
the Benton and Billings stage roads, and
it is a cold day when the ,hcuse is not
crowded to its utmost eapacity, as travel
ers go miles out of the way to reach Ubet
to enjoy the comfort and hospitality of
fered them. In connection with the hotel,
the Judge has a general merchandise store 1
and sample room, and enjoys no small
patronage from the surrounding country. t
ON ANTELOPE CREEK,
six miles beyond the Judith,
I met W. B. Edgar, who will ]
make his winter quarters for his sheep 1
there. He has three ranehes on Antelope, t
besides his Judith ranch, and during the I
winter months divides his sheep into three I
bands. Mr. Edgar has an .abundance of f
hay put up and ample sheds for the shelter I
of his sheep. He informed zne that Paris
Gibson, of Benton, had just bought Clif
ford & Clary's band of sheep, and 500
ewes from himself. Wool growifhg is a big
feature of the Judith country and con- I
stantly on the increase. At a rough esti- (
mate there are 75,000 sheep in the Judith
Basin, and more aie expected this fall.

and the demand foi home consumption is
so great that a three year old steer will
represent a $50 note for some time to
come. I reached
JOHN LAMOTT'S RANCH,
- on Arrow Creek, in time to lunch (and
a- lush) with E. W. Buckwalter, who is not
he only an old-time Montanian, one of the
1- few who helped to dig the channel of the
s- Missouri river, but an old time typo.
s, "Buck" for a long time ran a wood yard
,d at Two Calf Island, thirty miles above
ig Carroll, and still hankers after "ye olden
re times" when wood was $15 a cord and
it steamboat captains had money to throw to
es the birds. Bvckwalter was in a state of
a great excitement over the loss of a fine
k mare and colt stolen from La Mott's sta
ig bles a night or two before I arrived. He
le thinks the thieves were Indians, and not
Y only thinks, but says damn.
T- A petition is in circulation to make the
present toll road
A COUNTRY ROAD.
The old Carothers hill, on the county
road, is all but impassable. The travel
is goes entirely by LaMott's. I was forcibly
reminded on viewing the Carothers' hill of
a remark made by Ben McMann who, in
k an attempt to descend it with a ten mule
team succeeded in piling the outfit up in
a heap and landing his trail wagon on top
of his off leader. His remark was to the
it effect that the Arrow creek hill was a
d pretty good trail, until Colonel Donnelly
spent a few thousand dollars repairing it
for the county and it wasn't safe to drag
Sone lodge pole over after that. Mr. La
Mott has expended a. large amount of
money In improving his road, in bridges
and grades, and is certainly entitled to
e toll, but tax payers who travel the county
roads feel that the county should buy and
keep in repair the roads they travel and
t not uselessly expend money on a road
1 that is impassable.
r LONE TREE STATION,
owned by John M. Steel, is one of the best
i stopping places on the road. He has an ex
3 cellent ranch and raises everything Mon
tana soil will produce, including an abund
ance of small fruits, corn, melons, toma
s toes, etc. He intends putting at least 100
acres under cultivation next season. Biily
s Winschell presides at Twenty-Eight-Mile
Springs-Martinsdale road-and enter
tains his friends with a good meal, an ex
cellent quality of wet goods, and many
reminiscences of the old times when rail
roads and stage routes were a novelty in
Montana. Reaching Tom Harwood's at
I was surprised in the improvements I
made in the past year, Tom has erected a
1 large frame barn for the stage company,
and dwelling house for stock tenders, and
a comfortable and commodious habita
t tion for himself. He has a stone building, l
which has advanced towards completion,
that he will finish this winter. Ducks and
geese are plenty at the lakes, and Benton
sportsmen, should they chance this way,
will receive a hearty welcome from Tom
and can not help but return with full game
bags. L. F. R.
