Meals served at all hours, day or night, at the Grand Central Restaurant. * The festive collector was abroad in the land to-day. Collections are reported slow. If you wish to save 25 per cent. on your winter clothing, go to Hirshberg & Na than's. A shower this afternoon cooled the at mosphere considerably and laid the dust to some extent. Blankets, quilts, blanket coats, buffalo coats, at greatly reduced prices at Hirsh berg & Nathan's. If you want a meal to tickle the palate of an epicure you should go to the Grand Central Restaurant. * The services at the M. E.

Hats, caps, boots, shoes, slippers, trunks, valises, etc., will be sold at net cost, at IIirshberg & Nathan's during court week, Majors' teams came in to-day with a large cargo of hay belonging to Dave Browne. It was delivered to purchasers at once. Do not fail to call on Hirshberg & Na than for anything in their line. It will pay you to do so, for they are selling great bargains. T. C.

Fancy, and white shirts, fine under clo thing, cashimere and flannel over shirts at cost during court week at Hirshberg & Nathan's. For a good hot or cold bath, in rain water and Paris soap, you should interview Du trieuelle, the pioneer barber of Montana Territory. Duke Dutrieuelle, the old time barber of Montana, be it known, is located at the Grand Union barber shop, where he will be glad to meet his old customers. * George Settle returned last night from a trip over the Shonkin country. He is much pleased with what he saw and did considerable business on his own hook. Wall paper at COST for the next thirty days at Roosevelt's. This is a bona fide i offer and, like all other promises made by this house, will be kept good. 228tf Overcoats;, ulsters, ulsterettes, in all grades of goods and of the latest styles, I just received at Hirshberg & Nathan's. e The same will be sold at Eastern prices during court week. John Evans is quite proud of a stuffed prairie dog and genuine mountain mink, which were captured and fixed up on the Shonkin. He keeps them in his saloon as curiosities and to ornament his bar. Dick Brennan left this morning for the Montana district to look after his mining claims. During his absence Mr. Donovan will look after the business and there will be no lack of trade at the old reliable "Eureka" The Choteau House seems to be enjoy- c ing its usual large run of patronage. The g table at this house is set with every deli- a cacy the market affords and it is the in tention io make the Choteau as near per fection as possible. a William Copestick, who tends with a f1 father's-care the pauper element of our li populace, is in from his home on the Teton. ri He reports things booming in his vicinity e and nobody can convince him that the 'eton is not the best country in the world. ft James McDevitt, C. G. Griffith, C. L. st Bpencer and W. B. Settle went out on the reton this morning on a business trip. They have a job in hand which, although ci Ssecret one, will be hard to settle. It is iometimesdangerous to buy land in this :ountryand these men have found it out. There is a report going around among he Benton gossippers that a fine horse be- ce onging to Thomas Lacy, who resides on e he Shonkin, was eaten up by a bear re- t ently. Just how true the story is THE RECORD does not know, but, as bears are e luite numerous in that locality, there may e something in the rumor. "Peg Leg," the pugilist, is on the war- i ath after the editor of the r. p. and swears g Svengeance as deep as it will be gory. He is hinks it a shame that he cannot fight with- i ut being accused of mercenary motives w Lud will demonstrate his peguliar fistic ac uirements when he meets the. aforesaid d( vriter of summer generalities. "Overland Joe," the old time stage river whom everybody knows, is in the ity. He now handles the reins on the ad from Pine Coulee, east, and makes lis trips to Benton far too few to suit his riends. He has just recovered from quite a severe fit of sieckness, but is OK now. Fall and winter suits, beaver suits, dl hinchilla suite, cashimere suits, worsted ulits, broad-cloth suits, diagonal suits, nd all other kinds of business and dress uits, will be sold at cost during court x. reek, at Hirshberg & Nathan's.

The eating house will be in barge of Thomas (Gorham, Mr. Steell's gent at Chestnut, and will undoubtedly oa large business.

If the report is true Mr. Healy will be congratulated upon his good luck and the best wishes of a large circle of friends will follow him on his journey. Colonel M. J. Learning has purchased a lot on Franklin street near Bond and will commence to construct a building to be used as a law office. The Colonelis a first class attorney and an enterprising citizen and will soon build up a large and remun erative practice. The busy collector has not finished his labors yet, as one of them remarked to day: "Still on the wings of love we flee From groceri to groceree. To which another quickly answered : And on the wings of time we fly From grogerie to grogeri. 'They all seem to be quiet successful. al though there is for too much "stand off" to suit the times. Money is not as plenty as we would like it, but nobody suffers nevertheless. The first thing Rufas Payne did whb-n he took charge of the Overland was to im prove the quality of the liquors and cigars sold by this bar. He sells only the best of spirits and handles the First Love, Lone Fisherman and Silver Crown cigars. Bet ter grade than these cannot be found in the city and it is worth a twenty mile ride to sample them. The Overland bar is doing a good business in consequence of the changes made and Charley Miller smiles like a wooden fox notwithstanding the extra work he has to do. *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. e * FOR RENT.

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 CARELESS CREEK. 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 thoroughbreds. AT UBET 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. " J. D. WEATHERWAX is to be found at. his stand i at Utica.. He is a genial gentleman g who is pleased to meet his friends, and c royally entertains them.

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 LAKE STATION, 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.

A man who is believed to be the notor ous Montana horse thief, Dick Pettis, who 'ecently escaped from the Deer Lodge penitentiary, has been operating extensive y in the vicinty of Salt Lake under the tame of Andrew Pettit. On last Satur lay an unsuccessful attempt was made by he officers of that city to capture him. 'he Tribune says: "On Saturday evening bout eight o'clock, Andrew Pettit, a no ed horse thief, had his horse tied near he Sixteenth Ward schoolhouse, when an ttempt was made to arrest him. He counted his horse and started, being fol )wed by a volley of shots, and made his scape. It is estimated that between welve and fifteen shots were fired, one of rhich passed through Pettit's hat, which ras afterward picked up in the street. etit mtde good his escape, and the men rho did the shooting appear to be as hard Sfind as it would be to pick up the orse thief. We understand that he has een wanted for some time, and it is un )rtunate that his capture was not secured Lst Saturday." Sitting Bull's Dilema. The ceremonies of receiving Sitting ull, the great. Indian chief, 'into the atholic church, which it was anticipated ould take place a short time ago at Fort ates, has been indefinitely postponed, ecause Sitting Bull cannot make up his dud which of his two wives he will let ,. The laws of the church forbid the )mmunicant more than one.
