From the meager particulars at hand it seems that Mike Ryan had sold some cattle to Di!lon parties, for which he was to re ceive the money on the following day at his home. The robbers, two in number, had obt;dine' knowledge of the fact, and entering his house while Ryan and two other men were at supper, covered theni with their pistols and securely bound them, and then proceeded to ransack the house. Fortunately, the buyer of the cattle was behind time with his pay ment and did not arrive with it untit the day after the robbery, so the robbers failed to get the booty they were after. vev*, t ytj~goby about $85 or $300 which was in the house.

His Trip Over the Northern Pacific-Su perior City and Duluth-The Yel lowstone Division--Living stone-Remarkable Pro gress and Emigration -The Great Conti nental Enter prise. A Pioneer Press reporter interviewed yesterday M.v. Frederick Billings, ex president of the Northern Pacific, who was found. in the private car "Yellow stone" at Union depot yard. Mr. Bill ings received the reporteri kindly and readily answered his que~ions regard ing his trip to the West. Mr. Billings stated that he proceeded direct from St. 1 Paul to Superior City about a week ago, and examined everything there thor oughly. Superior City is improving. t The Northern Pacific company are building a fine, large dock, beside put ting in other improvements. These, and the early advent of the Chicago St. f Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, will be t highly beneficial to the town. The new I road will soon reach the place. Duluth is flourishing and growing rapidly, and everybody there is hopeful about its fu- c ture. Mr. Billings said his faith in this e great, northwestern county is so strong s he believed that at the head of the lake there will be a great city that will bring the interests of Duluth and Superior to gether. The two cities will be connected t next year, the only-gap now being the t St Louis river, for covering whicih the f Northern Pacific company now has a i charter from the federal governnment. Superior might grow faster, but for the fact that there is still a disposition by _ non-resident real estate :owners to hold their property at high prices. From Superior Mr. Billings went straight to STILLWATER, MONT. forty miles beyond Billings. The track is laid seventy-five miles west from Bil lings, and will reach Benson's Landingf which is 115 miles west from Billings, by thf middle of December. This will be the end of the Yellowstone idivision, 340 miles in length. From Benson's Latnding, to be called hereafr Aiving stone, after one of the ol tors of the company, the branch te the Yellow stone park, about.sixty miles in length, 1 will be built, with the intention of its completion by June 15, 1883. Mr. Bil lings testified as to the astonishing growth of the country at Fargo, and all other important places. He had never before been on the Yellowstone division, but he expressed his confidence that trains, on account of its grades and lines can be run as rapidly as on' the New York Central; and from the beginning of the division to its end the picturesque scenery is of itself something that will of itself attract travelers to it. Taking this scenery, in connection with the wonders of the so called Bad Lands, and the attractions of the Yellowstone park Mr. Billings believes that the Northern Pacific will be the most popular line for pleasure seekers this side of the Rocky Mountains. When the road is open, as it will be next season to the Pacific coast and the scenery of the Columbia and of Puget Sound will be so comparatively near, no one can realize the amount of travel for this road. Emigration is, continuously pouring to the front, mostly from the Northern States. In all the new towns there is springing up an appearance of the thrift, enxte pise and push that is so eminently "characteristiC of the people ofthe North ern States. THE LANDS be~tenp; the Red river and the Missouri are all being putunder cultivation; and ,beyopln the3Ii gi i to the Yellowstope, a stretch of 217 miles, the same process of development is goingeeoiguch as was seen two and three years ago from Fargo westward.

Afteu home more Northern Pafic than ever, believin it to be th. greatest enterprise on tii piell~ftea n4 '·~~~18a~'i;" b i1Wb~e~111t~ &$h gt~a~ew Mr. Billings' beliefs, that would have stimulated the conviction of any one disposed to doubt the assertions made. Knew She Would Come. One of the most touching stories Dick ens ever wrote wasjthat of poor "Little Emily." It is hard for most of us to keep back the tears when we read of her wonderings in foreign lands, and of how Mr. Peggotty never gave her up, but sought her everywhere until he found her and saved her. Just such things constantly are happening in real life. Here is a story of a young Scotch girl who was led into sin; perhaps by the ex ample of some of her companions, and leaving her home went to London. One day while proceeding along the street, she came by a church and heard the congregation singing an old tune she knew well. She paused a moment, and while listening a sudden vision came to her of a home she had left, her father and mother, the quiet village and the simple pure life that had once been hers. A longing swept through her heart just to creep over the threshold of home once more and sit at her mother's feet; even if it was in sin and in shame, and she brought disgrace with her-mother was there, and forgivenness and love were there. So she travelled the long distance to the village. She felt that she must not be seen by the neighbors. So weary and footsore ;and longing though she was, hid in the fields till dark. Then she waEcd and waited-fearing that she could not make it right with ;"feyther" -till "feyther" should be gone to bed, and she could find mother sitting alone. When she came to the house her beat ing heart stopped in fear, for the lights were gone and sha remembered that the door was shut at night. Yet at any rate she must see, and her heart leaped again when she found that the door was open. Light as was her foot when she stepped within, ohe ear heard it, and her mother spoke low, and trembling with hope, from an other room, "Jeanie, is it you?" "Yes mother, and oh, I feared to find the doer shut." "Ay, Jeanie, lass. the door has nae been shut since ye left." --~- 4-~F4 -,O~- Th. Return of Our Wives. It was in a horse car. She had been away for several months and the child ren had gone to the depot to meet her. They chatted away merrily while she patted their little heads and smiled in terestedly. "How's Mary?" she inquired when they both stopped for breath. "Oh, she's well. She's taking her music lessons right along. "And Harry?" "He's going to school. Started last week." "And papa?" "He's well, too. He's having a bully time. He said he didn't care if you didn't come back for a year." Grabbing the children with both hands, she rushed for the door with an I'll-get-even-with-him-for-this expres sion on her face. Heaven help him! The Story of an Umbrella' During the shower yesterday a citizen carrying a very wet umbrella entered a hotel to pay a call to some one up stairs. After placing his umbrella where it might krain, he wrote Uipon a piece of paper add pinned it to the senteinee: "N. B:-This umbrella belongs to a man who strikes a 250-pound blow-back in fifteen mtndttes.'" He went his way up stairs, and, after an absence of fifteen niinutes, i~turned to find his umbrella gone, and in its place a n6te feadinig: "P.

Dining With Queen Victoria. A recent guest of the queen at Wind sor Castle has " written up " the cere mony of a quasi private dinner at the royal abode. Victoria never resides. at Windsor for more than four months out of each year, and during that period she lives in real state. At Balmoral and Osborne her habits are more free and easy, so that the routine of court exist ence cannot be seen to advantage save at Windsor Castle. An invitation to dine with her majesty and spend the night at the Castle is equivalent to a command, with whose execution nothing but death may interfere. On arriving at the door invited guests are received by the pages of the chamber, who con duct them to their respective rooms, as they are indicated on a plan provided in advance. The yisitors' rooms are spa cious, comfortable and supplied with all modern conveniences. Those who come to the royal table must do so in full dress, and the preparation occupies some little time. Soon after eight o'clock the visitors find their way into the grand corridor, where they indulge in conver sation with each other and await the queen, who enters, followed by Princess Beatrice, about 8:30. Her majesty gives a word of greeting to each of her guests, and then all go to dinner. The private dining room is rather small, cheery and very attractive. The meal is always very good, both in make-up and service. In the former respect partly, perhaps, because the name of the cook who is re sponsible for each dish is written oppo site to it on the menu. Champagne and claret are usually provided. Various footmen, pages and other servants are in attendance about the room, and John Brown, in full Highland dress, is sta tioned behind the queen's chair. The queen leaves the room with the ladies, and the gentlemen follow in two or three minutes, after which there is half an hour of personal intercourse in the corridor, the queen entering into con versation with each of the guests. She then withdraws and the visitors pass the evening smoking, at billiards, or as they please. Her majesty always breakfasts in private, and the visitors depart in the morning without meeting her. The Majesty of the Law. There is a justice of the peace out in Crosby county. A few weeks ago he found a man guilty of shooting a bull that did not belong to him, and fined him $75. "Why, Jedge," said the man, "I haven't got $75; I can't pay no such fine." "The state of Texas puts me in this office to find a way to make men pay their fines. You will cut cedar poles until you have cut enough to satisfy the majesty of the law," replied the justice. "But, Jedge, what use has the state of Texas got for cedar poles?" " The state of Texas hasn't got any use for cedar poles. It's this court who needs them ' cedar poles to build a fence. I'll take the poles and settle with the state of Texas for them." And the poor fellow is cutting cedar poles for the state of Texas now. Chance for a Stake. They were burying a man who had died in Southern Indiana, when a tramp leaned over the fence and inquired" "Was he statesman?" "No." "Orator?" "'Philosopher?" ,,No.,, "Poet?" "Great inventor, or anything of that sort?" "No; he was simply an honest man." "Oh, that's it, eh? Why don't his i widder take his body over to Chicago and put it on exhibition and make a stake?"
