Fort Benton and the surrounding coun

day evening which the "oldest inhabitant"
says was the most severe in his experience.
It seems to have moved in a zig-zag course,
taking in all the principal agricultural
valleys in that vicinity, and doing great
damage to crops. The ground was covered
with hail stones to the depth of two or
three inches ; grass and weeds were buried
in the ground; trees were stripped of their
leaves and several panes of glass broken
"Old Salty," who has just returned
from Montana, informs the Hailey Times
that in the National Park there are places
where a man may sit on one spot, cast his
fish line into a stream, swing out a fine
trout and land it into a boiling spring, and
then into a salt spring, when it is read>
•for eating. There are also springs that
supply paints of every color, and a spring
which, at 6 a. m. and 6 p. m., daily,
makes a noise similar to a Mississippi
steamboat whistle, and by which the 150
men now employed in making roads in the
Park go on and off work. There are parts
of a lake where fish can be captured in
shallow water with file hands, and parks
where game and elk are killed with clubs.
The adventures of fills gentleman are bet

Livingston and White Sulphur Springs
We extract the following from the
Rocky Mountain Husbandman. It needs
no çomment as its tone is as cordial and
its language as expressive as we could de
The town of White Snlphur Springs was
visited last week by a committee of enter
prising gentlemen, Geo. N. Smith, Geo. J.
Babson and Frank Bush, of the railway
metropolis, Livingston. Messrs. Babson
and Bush were appointed by the citizens
of their town to come to Smith river to see
what was here and make an estimate on
the cost of putting the wagon road in first
class repair, and to confer with our citi
zens in regard to securing the most friend
ly relations between the two points. Mr.
Smith was a delegate to confer with oar
people in regard to the establishment of
mail service and the erection of a tele
graph and telephone line. They received
a very cordial reception and none but the
most friendly sentiments were exchanged.
Livingston is without question the freight
point for White Sulphur Springs. This
we may consider is already established,
and with a telegraph and mail will be
come the passenger point also. Since
Livingston is the junction of the Park
branch of the Northern Pacific, and will
be thronged with visitors, tourists, etc., for
Wonderland it is absolutely necessary to
connect it with the Springs by a fast line
of coaches, as but few who go to see the
wonders of the Park will be willing to
return to their eastern home without a
taste of the healing waters of White Sul
phur Springs, the greatest panacea of
human ills yet discovered. Messrs. 8mitk,
Bush and Babson are live enterprising
gentlemen, and represent a wide awake
and thoroughly business people v/fio Mill
leave nothing undone calculated to
strengthen the relation between Livings
ton and the Springs, and it is to our inter
est to co-operate with them in the most
cordial manner, as the interest of the two
points are one, each can be of great ad
vantage to the other. There will be hun
dreds of thousands of pounds of wool to
go to the railroad by this route, and in
another year when the Montana mines are
more fully develoyed, a steady stream of
bullion wiU lead off in thesame direction,
while the supplies tor all ihese industrie.*'
and the thousands who will in a few years
sojourn at the healing fountains, must also
come by the same route. We are glad to
welcome Livingston's enterprising business
men to our town, and trust they will come
