SThe Hlelena papers claim that a firm there who have just commenced manu facturing cigars, are the first in the ter ritolry to engage in the business. They are wrong-as Robert Pfaendtner, of Benton, was the,»t. EdI. Smith's big train, en route from Billings to Barker, loaded lfr F. W. Ieed & Co., was snow bound in the Judith Basin, and Ed. had to turn out his bulls to await the weather. He will lmove as sooDl as possible. Fivre discharged soldiers from Fort As sinahoine were passengers on the last co::" to Billings, and as many as can :,u accommodated will take the coach this morning, all en route east. There arle several more to follow. Last. Monday evening, Mr. Dion J. Hrogan and Eugenia, eldest daughter of Capt. 0. B.

Bob Vaughn recently purchased a fine ,ersey ihull, and has named the animal after one of Benton's most prominent ilerchalnts.

John Power will take his departure in I a few days for the east, to buy a mam moth stock of goods for the Benton house of T. C. Power & Bro., and its. several branches. We received an order by the last mail; from New York city ifkr twenty-five copies of the HoLIDJAY RIVER" PRESS, but as the entire edition is. exhausted we are ' ty e- - AVe would advise our hardware deal irs to order plenty of wood stoves for Text fail's trade. The boon iih, tjk Mis souri river insures cheap wood and plent J. H. Moe, who so long and so accept ably filled the position of register of the Helena land office, left for the east on Thursday last. It is not probablethat he will return to Montana. Great loss of stock is reported in Tex as, while in Montana there has been absolutely no loss whatever, either in sheep, cattle or horses., Montana is the best stock country in the world. The merchants on lower Front street are doing some vigorous kicking because somebody left a dead horse on the ice in front of their business places. They think the carcass should have been de p' sited farther away. Mr. W. V. Stocking and family, we understand, will move to town in the spring and occupy the Bourassa brick residence lately purchased by Mr. S. Their many friends in Benton will be glad to have them among us. Rev. Mr. Blackiston will take his de iparture for Butte, to ussume his new ,charge, to-morrow week, and in a few days afterwards Mr. Gray, his successor, may be expected. There will be general regret over the departure of Mr. Black iston. We understand that some days ago an injunction was served on Judge Tattan, enjoining him not to dispose of any of the lots in the new addition embraced in the \furphy claim. What has been, or is to be, the outcome of the matter we can not say. " Whisky's Last Effobrt" is the title of an article in the editorial column presi ded over by thlie "splendid mentality." Our devil suggests, however, that a charitable "make-up" put the head on the wrong article. It should have been over the second one above. A picture of one of the proposed ho tels in the Yellowstone park is now on exhibition in the office of the assistant secretary of the interior at Washington. The building will be three stories high alnd contain 200 rooms. The company expect to have the building ready for guests June 1st. WVe know now why John Power is sometimescalled "Doctor John."' While we were in the store the other day, anj old Indian came in and talked with him quite awhile, apparently in a joshing humor. Joh!, afterwards told us that the old fellow wanted some medicine- but we won't tell wiiat he wanted it for. Ask John. August Demehl, a rancher living near Miles City, met with a serious accident a few nights since. His cabin c(aught fire, and in an attempt to save his bed ding and watch, his hands, feet and face were burned to a crisp. He saved the articles and slept out on the open praiiie that night and froze his feet; so that it is probable they will have to be amputated. He is now at Miles City receiving treat ment. Work will be actively commenced on the Missouri river boom net Mon-day, and as large a force put on as can be se cured. It is proposed to puit in the catch bioom first, for which five.peers will be required, and upon these the first work will be done. A number of contracts t~ill be let for furnishing timbers, stone, eIc. Mr. Lawrence, assisted by mem hers of the company, is going about the w;ork 'in sfsematic style, and a good "o.l 'iig will be made (~i a few months. Walter Burke informs usthat the prospects for thestagoiiehig ~ bitiness ot" T. C. Power & Co. for the coming spring and summer months are particu larly good, and that every pains will be taken to meetthe wishes of the traveling public. A petition for a daify mail be tween Billings and $eton by, a direct rbute; is bein ieryg ei 1ely' ~igned, and will .no deubt be gintedZ9i as the increased population alo~ thje route, andc the ncessities of Benton demand } T'e.Art A.mateur for February con tains some striking crayon and charcoal drawings, including the Lions in Trafal trait of that artist by Mllet and Abbey, and a very life-like figure study by Ge. H. Boughton, whose beautiful painting, han~sp ely reproduced. The tet of the . ib~.'is especially strong. There rte aluable articles on fan painting, ilina painting and needle-work, andzo v s dre:-; #t From Tuesday's'Daily: C. E. Conrad left for the east yesterday morning. irs. John Green is visiting friends on the Shonkin. Mrs. Alex. Martin has.bbeen quite ill but is now improving. John Castner's teams have been turlied out and will leave no more coal this win ter.' Jbhn Moffitt and Bob Blankenbaker take theji- departure q for Helena this morning. A prize fight is.expected to take place at Forsythe some time during the present month. If common rumor can be believed the "splendid mentality" is very near the end of its financial tether. Too bad. Tunnel builder Muir says that a vein of silver bearing ore has been discovered in the east end of the Bozeman tunnel. The Helena and Deer Lodge Knights of Pythias will each give a grand ball on the 19th, the anniversary of the order. W.. G. Jones yesterday commenced the erection of another building for W. S. Stocking, adjoining the one he built for Foster. epor rom the cattle ranges of C'o' arado say the loss of stock by snow storms and cold weather will amount to 15 per cent. om o n, Dics n Mr. Mudge, of Highwood, arrived in the city last evening. They will file on their land to-day. The track of the Northern Pacific is now this side of the summit above Boze man tunnel and is coming down grade toward Bozeman. Jack Hammond went to Highwood the other day to look for logs suitable for the boom, and he reports that suitable timbers can be secured there. Geo. Bert arrived from his ranch on the Barker road yesterday. George tells us he has leased his ranch and will work at his trade in Benton this summer. Col. John P. Hatch, second cavalry, has been ordered to proceed from Fort Custer to Fort Maginnis, Mont., for the purpose of making an inspection of the cavalry stationed at that post. The skating race (one mile) at Butte last Thursday night for a purse of $35 was won by A. W. Wright in 3.30. The juvenile race was won by Freddie Buz zard, a lad of ten years, in 3:41. We acknowledge an invitation to at tend the fourth annual ball of the Sun River stock growers' association;, to be held at Largent hall on the evening of the 22d inst. We have no doubt it will be way-up affair. ools and material were hauled up to the Island yesterday, and this morning some six or eight men will be gin work on the boom. It is the inten on of the company to "make her boom" mn this time until it is completep. prominent spolrting man, one whose udgment is usually correct, told our re porter that this year will be the liveliest enton has ever seen, and that the "flush imes" will continue for three or four ears. The reporter readily agreed with weeks ago we published the death at Fort Snelling, Minn., of Col. W. WV. Sanders, and St. Paul papers received by the last mail report that his widow, who wore herself out in atttend ance upon himn has now joined him in death. J. L. Stuart would like to get his eagle eye on the rascal who stole the fence posts and poles from his ranch, just south of town. He says the larcenous work has been going on all. winter, and by spring headoesm't expect that even the post holes will be aleft. C. Wr. Merrill j Co. yesterday com mnenced on the impzoyerments to be made on Baker & DeLorimier's stqore building. The present partition will be removed, so as to enlarge the room, did, an office built in the rear. Messrs. B; & DeL.'s growing business demands more room. Some pretend to believe that *the "splendid mIentailitiy" is attribUted to "Eyil Eye No. 6; others that it refers to_ 'ivil Eye No. 7, but the majority smile and say it i meafnt for the original evil of the concern. 1No. 7, who is now doing all the hdavy work, shouldibe more ex At a sci gatheriJi the other night he young men an 4youug ladies were Ighest bidder.
