Judee McLearv has .donated to the Montana Historical society about 200 volumes, including department reports, legislative journals, etc. All the ground along tho Rocky Fork railroad has been broken and all that re.naina to do is to throw the loose dirt to the proper grade. Cold weather can not delay the work to a great extent. The "oldest inhabitant" is of the opin ion that tl.is is to bo a mild winter, with very little snow. If this be true the lawyers will get rich trying water suits and the Gallatin ditch will be built out of sheer necessity. It is said that Editor Dana of the N V. Sun has an owl constantly In his. sanctum. And now ironies word of the fact that Doc. Hersy, the war corres pondent, of Billings, has also provided himself with an owl. Hiram Farris, of Cherry Creek, has lest twenty-two head of horses in the past three weeks, with the disease known as "Poke Easy." Three of his finest mares, all fat, died with the dis ease. Horses attacked die within ten or fifteen hours. At the meeting of tho firemen on Wednesday evinj? last, the old otticere were renominated. The bids for printing the by-laws of the company were opened and awarded to A. K. Yerkes, he being tho lowest bidder of the three local printers. Mr. Wm. Perks, wife and son from Moreland were in the city yesterday purchasing supplies. Mr. PerkB, who has been a long resident of this territory, since '65, bolieves in the efficacy of snow to bring good times and health. He says that it can't come too fast or to o much to suit him. The "fakirs," who were selling "solid" gold watches for a mere song, under the pretense that they were "unclaimed pledges," silently folded their tents and departed on Wednesday last. They sold several watches, however, while in Boze man ; but wero not richly repaid, as is usually tho case. Mis. Comfort, wife of Rev. Goo. Com fort, who for several years has been in very delicato health and at various times in a precarious condition, owing to lun g troubles, peacefully passed away on Sunday evening. The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family residence. Anent the articles which from time to time appeared in tho Chroniclk showing the wealth of this county, we tliis week present tho statement of the Gallatin Valley National bank and point to its quarterly showing with pride. There must be a prosperous community where such a solid institution exists. Several cars of N. Story's cattle were attached by Sheriff Harris of Yellow* stone county, for taxes, last week. Mr. Story and R. P. Vivion went to BillingB at once, and sucpeeed in getting the cattle released, Mr. Story depositing $2,500 in the Billings bank, pending tho settlement of the matter by the courts* Do not forget tho fair, which opens on Wednesday and continues three days, in the building one door east of Basin ski's. Tho ladies have a large assort ment of fancy goods, suitable for Christ mas presents. They confidently promise to all who attend a great variety of at tractions, good supper and pleasant com pany. It is said that the Livingston bank u to bo re-organized and re-officered. This bank, with nroper and popular management, could be made one of the best properties in eastern Montana. If Mr. Love, its former cashier,shonldcon cludo to remove from Liyingiton, that town will suBtain a serious lorn, as he is one of its most enterprising citizens. "Doc." Kay, teacher of the Willow Creek school, informs m, in reply to a communication which appeared last week in the Ciironic-lx , that he did not, as one would natural}/ suppose by read ing the communication, go to Willow Creek for the express purpose of giving the people of that district the measles. In fact, he did not have the measles in his iiossession until he had been there a j few dayB. Hoakins & McGirl are relieved, for the time being at least,a judgement hav ing been rendered In the Helena court, wherein Myera' mortgage lias been de clared void and costs placed on plaintiff. The receiver has been discharged. This places the control of the business in the hands of the original firm, Hoskins A McGirl, to carry on as before. They have started a suit against Myera for $10,000 damages, which they have sus tained by having their beef herd detain ed, received appointed and other things in connection therewith. The Washington corres|»ondent of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, in speaking of the work which is likelv to come before con- j gross, Bays: "Delegate Toole, of Mon tana, will make an effort to get. a read justment of Indian affairs in that terri tory. He will urge the removal of all ( the Indiaus along the larder and tlie throwing open of tho great Northern reservation and will also try to get tho Cheyenne* transferred and the Tongno River reservation reopen*!." On »hi> question of admission to statehood, the same correspondent says: "There will bo no objection to the passage of an act for the wkniHsion of Montana, ashing ton, New Mexico and Dakota this year, provided, they don't get in before the presidential election. In the senate both democrats and republicans will jaiah the admission bills." The attention is called gto the mam moth advertisement of Levy & Elins. This firm is now doing a lively business as is usually the case with those who advertise. County Attorney Henrv's bill for de fending the county in .lie suit of A K. Yerkes vs. County Com miners, was only $150. It ought to have been $350. His reference to the plaintiff's "bull pup nnd plug hat," alone saved the county at least $500. Tho county officers are getting high toned. They want the commif-sioners to furnish them with a janitor. They for get that the county saws their wood for them, gives ihem blank paper, postage stamps and cuspidors. Commissioner Maxey can well say that he constructs his own fires and gets up at five o'clock to do it. Personal Points. —M.

We suspect that George will get married while ho is cast notwithstanding the fact that many a good Montana girl have their eyes on him and hi s splendid ranch. On Tuesday of last week, a workman at Timberline named Price, who lately came from the east, sustained an acci dent from which he died the same day. He was walking in front of a coal car with his hand on the side brake, when he came in contact with another car, which he l.ad evidently net observed. One of his legs wan badly mashed, neces sitating a prompt amputation, by Drs. Higgens and Whitefoot. This, however, proved unavailing and tho injured man died soon after. From 'he minute he was picked up by his associates he be lieved that he would not survive and could not be mado to rally or take a hopeful view of his injuries. The dead man was about 45 years of age. a Welsh man, unmarried and but slightly known at Timberline. Notwithstanding this, however, all work was shut down at the mines soon after the accident occurred and remained quiet until after the fun eral, which took place at Bozeman on Wednesday and was attended by every inhabitant of Timberline who could ob tain horses to bring thom hore. Tho coal company paid all expenses of the funeral and saw to it that the deceased was buried decently, although he was a stranger in a strange land. PROBABLE INSANITY. James Cullum, a brother-in-law of W. C. Officer, who has herded sheep during the past season, was taken with the measles a few days ago and camo to Livingston. He engaged quarters at the New York Houso where on Sunday and Monday he was confined to his room. About 9:30 Monday morning the report of a pistol eliot emanated from his room and upon investigation as to its cause it was found that Mr. Cullum had shot himself with a 38-calibre revolver. The shot entered his head just below tho left temple and lodged some whore in thalorehead. A surgoon was prompt ly summoned and on his arrival did much to relievo the patient. Tho wound has had the effect of depriving Mr. Cullum of his eyeright and he is at present in a critical condition. Dr. Alton is attending him and lias hopes of his recovery. No cause is known why Mr. Cullum should have sought to take his own life, more than that the disease with which he was afflicted is one which in many cases causes temporary aberra tion of the mind, and it is probable he was affected in this way.—Enterprise. John and Hank Border, accompanied by Georgo Spring, left on Monday for a visit to Missouri, Indiana, Chicago and j Washi::gtou city, after an absence of a number of years. Tho Border boys deserve a rest and can well afford to take one, being two of the most prosperous of Gallatin county young men. Besides raising largo crops on their ranch they | havo a large number of horses and other i stock, all of which liavo beeu accuiuulat ed by hard work and steady habits. ] These young men offer a fair example of what can bo done in this valley by energe and economy. This year they raised the largest barley crop grown in the valley, a crop that averaged them *43 per aero. From 2:t acres they raised 84.120 pounds, which they mid f»»r$1.20 per hundred pounds. From 104 acres they raised 5,350 bushel* of oats, wheat and barley; their oat crop averayed 07 bushels i»er acre. UNIVERSITY SCHOOL.

Richard Trevellick, Grand Orator of the Knights of i^ibor. addressed a large ar.dience at Knights of Lalior hall, on Friday evening. Mr. Trevellick has been connected with this organization for many years, was one of its founders and for several years its Grand Master Workman. He is a splendid talker and handles his subject iu a manner highly interesting. None can hear his lecture without obtaining a h'glier regard for the order which he so earnestly repre sents. If the plans and purposes of the order, as set forth by tho orator, could be obtained at once, the Knights of Labor would be one of the grandest in stitutions of tho world. If It were possi ble to keep demagogues and political wirerpulters out of the order, and if the majority of its members wero actuated by the dosirea which prompt Terrence Powderly and Richard Treyellick in ten years it would accomplish tho grandest work evor done.

Tho deceased was a charming young lady, whose amiable qualities endeared her to a largo circle of friends. Her death, at this untimely hour of life, Is greatly to be deplored. She was a de vout and earnest Christian, a member of the M. E. church of Bozeman. The editor of the Ciikonii i.e , in answer to a telegram, as we go to press, is in formed bv Dave Mark that J. E. Hendry died at 11:45, Tuesdav, tho 13th, 1887. At this time words fail us. That one so true and able should bo called away, ere lvis work in life had fairly begun, passeth all understanding.
