ROMANTIC MAIDENS Three St. Louis Maids Would Have Cowboys Lasso Them—Enclose Notes in Whiskey Case. You can never tell what a case of whisky may bring forh. That at least is the conclusion reached by the boys at the Mint bar. Monday morn ing while opening a case of whisky just received from the distillery in St. Louis, a bunch of letters were found tucked beneath the bottles in such a manner that they could not escape notice. The letters were neat iy written and showed considerable relinement on the part of the writers, pad were particularly addressed to the cowboys of Musselshell county. It is evident from the tone of the letters that the St. Louis misses are deeply in love with the "fringed heroes of the west" and would fane share their lot, having decided on this method for opening a romantic courtship, the end ing of which, of course, would put to shame the roseate final chapter of th » best dime novel ever produced. "Oh, how I love a cowboy!" "Drop me a line, please," and "I'd like you to lasso me," are extracts from the letters. Already a number of cjw punchers have written to the girls of fering them their hand in marriage, while others who are a little more >nr licular have sent in requests for pho tographs. In any event it is expect ?d that If the gir'.s are really sincere *hey will have no trouble in picking up one of their dream heroes. The names of the girls who wrote the notes are May and Penel Scullin, their addresses being given as 4031 Fasten r* nue, St Louis, Mo.

One of the largest shipments of dtock ever made out of Roundup was thade last night by a number of the ranchers of the Musselshell country. i he reason for this large movement of cattle at this time is contained in tiie fact that the market is better than it has been for a long time, and ranchers figure that they are making a| nice little extra profit by marketing now. Those who contributed stock to make up the two train loads were Jim Hart, Gust Rehder, Magnus Linds trand, J. IV. and P. L. Newton, Jos. lj. Asbridge, J. M. Chandler, Shaw of Grass Range, and Hanson of Broad view. One train carrying 2S cars, eight of which were loaded with sheep and theo thers with beef cattle, left at 4 i 30 yesterday afternoon on its way td the market in Chicago. The sec otid train was speeded on its way at 9 o'clock in the evening with 35 curs of fine, fat Musselshell county beef. Both trains will make rtcord runs, arriving in Chicago sometime to morrow morning, making as few stops as the comfort of the cargo will per mit. Eight of the cars will be trans ferred to the Omaha market. The approximate market value ot the stock shipment is estimated at $(15,000, there being over 1200 head of cdttle and about 1000 head of sheep. Beef steers are bringing as high as $75 on the Chicago market now, with $05 being a fair average.

The deed filed this week conveys the property to C. C. Serum, T J. Severson having been the orig inal owner. $10,000 is given as ttie consideration.
