Adah Lesson appears to have been
misused. This morning she com
joined before Judge Seward that
••lW' Lesson, her '-solid man" had
beaten, kicked and generally maltreat
ed her and threw her out of the
jdiack. A warrant was issued for the
fellow's arrest, hut the officers have
failed t<* find him, and it is believed
he left on the train.
A day or two ago a gentleman who
lives down the valley bought two gal
lons of very superior cognac for pri
vate use. When he went over to the
train he left the jug containing the
liquor on the platform and entiiely
forgot it. When he returned next
dav the jug was there as sate as possi*
\,le but the brandy had evaporated.
This atmosphere is very trying on any
species of alcoholic liquid.

Yesterday afternoon an injunction
was served on Bougliton & Harper at
the suit of Robert Livingston forbid
ing the prosecution of any further
work in defendant's brick-yard on t îe
ranch claimed by plaintiff. This is
very unfortunate. Just at the time
when brick is in such demand with
which to prosecute building operations
the people of Livingston may properly
view the injunction in the light of a
public injury. The defendants, how
ever, hope to ha\*e the injunction dis
solved by Tuesday next so that work
may proceed.

Fourth af July.
We hope that interest in the Fourth of
July celebration in Livingston is not be
ing allowed to flag. The Enterprise
thinks Livingston can get up and carry to
a snccosstul end the best celebration of
the day that eastern Montana will wit
ness. This cannot be done without the
co-operation or encouragement of all cit
izens, hut with these elements, success is
assured. A mass meeting of citizens to
arrange details is the proper thing and
we should be pleased to give notice of
such a meeting. The time approaches
and there should be no delay.

The Circus.
Harris' Nickel Plate circus,
museum of wonders and
curiosities will exhibit in Livingston to
morrow- afternoon. We understand it to
be a good show. Those who attended
Dan Gastello's circus last year will re
member that -it gave good satisfaction;
this is the same show with a great list of
new features, making it one of the largest
and best on the road. A full advertise
ment of the Nickel Plate in another col
umn should receive careful perusal.
The Need of Rain.
The continued period of dry weather
becomes a serious thing for Montana.
From all over the territory the same cry
for rain goes up, though on the west side
there hns been a somewhat heavier pre
cipitation during the spring than in east
ern Montana. The rainy season which is
generally drawing to a close about this
date in each year lias failed entirely to
put in an appearance, nor has there been
even occasional showers during tiie whole
season. Crops have in many instances
been irrigated to make them germinate in
the ground, but as there is an abundance
of water in every stieam for irrigating
purposes crops will not suffer from lack
of naturally supplied moisture. The
stockmen have most reason to call for
rain. Grass has not attained its usual
growth and is already beginning to turn
yellow and become hay. Unless plentiful
rains fall within a few days the grass crop
oa the ranges will he so short as to seri
ously affect the condition of herds before
the year is past.
Northern Pacific Emigrant Cars.
The comfort found in the emigrant cars
run by the Northern Pacific, says a pas
seuger, cannot he excelled l*y any railroad
east or west. They are made with fold
in«- bunks above and below and as com
fortable as can be. Cook stoves for heat
in«- coffee and tea are to be found in each
car, and the emigrant without a single
exception seem pleased with the accom
modations furnished them by the com
pany. The dining cars are run on all
day trains and they are as good in every
respect as those between Chicago or St.
Paul. It is much cheaper to get meals in
these pelace cars than many of the hotels
and certainly much better. Emigrants
can buy lunches at St. Paul prices if they
do not desire a full meal.
Money Rost.
Butte Miner : During the recent 1» ank
troubles in the east, several Italians living
in Butte and vicinity became alarmed
and withdrew their deposits in the several
banks iii the city. They gave their money
to Dominic Toneatti for safe keeping.
Toneatti hid the money. A few days ago
he was killed by a fall in the Lexington
mine and the knowledge of the secret
hiding place perished with him. Although
several well-directed efforts have been
made to discover the lost treasure it has
not yet been found. It takes a few such
experiences to convince some men that a
good bank vault is the best place to keep
money in, but sooner or later they learn
the fact though often, as in this instance,
by dear experience.
Fire In a Newspaper Office.
This morning at 1:15 o'clock the press
room of the Bozeman Courier caught fire
underneath the fire-box of the engine,
which had lieen running until after 11
o'clock the preceding evening in the
course of working off the jiaper. It was
discovered by the night watchman who
raised mi alarm by rapidly shooting off
his revolver. Several citizens quickly ar
rived on the scene, hurst open the doors
and extinguished the fine without the aid
of the lire department. The loss is tri
fling and is fully covered by insurance.
New Grazing: IJegion.
Journal : The south side of the A el
lowstoue in Custer county is so far taken
up by cattle and other stockmen, that new
comers who favor the sheep industry fail
to lind room without crowding other pre
viously established ranges. These men
who favor an increase of the wool
commodity are looking over the virgin
region in the vicinity of the head waters
of the Big Dry and lied Water rivers,
north of the Sheep mountains. By the
way it is reported on good authority that
these regions afford not only good grazing,
water, plenty of hay ground, good shel
ter, but possess an abundance of tine
timber, which is an important feature in
sheep culture at such distant points from
lumber yards.
A Spanish newspaper, published on the
northern frontier, states that a canal from
the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, which
is to convert the Iberian Peninsula into an
island, appears now to be in a fair way to
l>ec< me an accomplished fact. Starting
from the Gironde, the proposed canal is in
e ide.l to touch Toul >usc, continuing
through Languedo -, and joining the Med,
iterranean Narbonne. As the site for
a commercial emporium Narbonne holds a
I osition second to none in France being
placed at an angle of the gulf of Lyons,
and in the valley of the Aude. The con
tracts for the works is singed between the
founders and the contractors of the Suez
Canal for a canal capable of taking vessels
of the largest size. The founders have
asked the French Government for a guar
antee of 10,000,000 francs annually, to
begin from 18SI), when the works are ex
pected to be completed.
