A Descriptive Scente of head Man's Flat P111-in"- Early Davs. One day rich by the sweat of their brow, the next I eggared by the turn of a card or the (ive. the-- ;wore. tiler gambled, they killed each other. Foul blasphemy, the crack of the ever ready revolver, the death-cry of an other victim, were the sounls that now rent the air, accompanied by the click of the gambling-wheel and the shrill-piping music Of the dance houses. For three months; the bar continued to yield its millions: the population doubled. trebled, till final ly nearly every white man in Montana was to be found in Dead Mants Flat. Millicns were taken from the insig aificant stretch of accumnulated sand; when suddeniV one dark, tempest nons night the end came: a freshet, caused by the wasteful devastation of the forests that clothed for many miles the impending mountain slopes. broke down the confining dam of a; natural reservoir higher up the glen, sending huge volumes of water down the narrow ravine, wherv it -wes:t s0 erything before it. In five nmilutcs nothing was left of tho city. (Gan bling hells, whisky saloons and dance houses shared the fate of the flun e washing-cradles, and other costly ap pliances. But the western man is of an elastic character, and reverses only goad him to further energy. Before daylight divulged the whole exteut of the devastation the flood had wrought. the building up of a new city-this time riot of flimsv tents. but of sub stantial srcture;- - -had ctually be gun. Blnt the rays of dawn nead nw, in store which once f. r all settled the fate of Dead Mai's Flat. The bar was gone: With the city. with the gambler's tools and the whisky bar rels. had been swept awvay the gold bearing scndl oait. The same OSrI cesss of nature ll at ini a;r>s gon.i ih had ,epositod th . luIn :5.s Ia' had now spirited it a way. The fol lowing week there was not a living soul left in the deserted camp. To the dead in their grave-yard. which latter, from its elevated position, had not suffered, was left the inheritance of Dead Man's Flat, purchased Ly them with their life's blood. In twenty years' timo, nature, ever healing, rejuvenating, would cast her cloak of forgetfulness ovt'r the :;orry gashes malls hl'nd had worked.

Two physicians of Ada, Minnesota, named Stuart and Warum. had a dis pute over a prescription, and the form er pushed the latter down. In fall ing, his head came in c'nta: t with a counter, and received injuries from which he has since died. The Democratic State Convention, which met at Richmond, adopted a platform opposing further agitation of the State debt question. The iron and steel trade in Penn sylvania begins to show some signs of life, and numerous idle mills have re sumed work. Reports from Dakota all agree that the damage to the wheat crop has been large. It will reach 25 per cent. The property of the Bankers and Merchants' Telegraph company was sold at public auction in New York for $500,000. The body of an unknown man was fished out of the Missouri at Mandan. Dakota. St. Paul is waging war agaist the gamblers. Minneapolis stone-cutters who have been out on a strike for some weeks, have returned to work. The recent hot wave which swept over the East is said to be the warm est on record. Three colored persons, two men and one woman, stretched hemp for murder at Plaquemia, La. It is estimated that 250,000 stran gors were in New York city to attend Gen. Grant's funeral. Mrs. Salon, the self-styled Texas cattle-queen jumped her board bill imounting to $75 at the Palmer House, Chicago. Senator Mahone has issued a cir cular to all the postmasters in Vir- - ginia who have been bounced, asking Iqueitiens as to the circumstances of their removal. Next month the Kentucky distillers will have taxes amounting to 5$4050,- - 000 to pay on 5,000,000 gallons of whisky in bond. A fire in Toronto, Canada, last week destroyed over a million dollars worth of property. The net profits of the Canadian Pacific railway from Jan. 1 to June 30 were $1,114,000. A monument has just been unveil ed to the memory of Rebocca Nurse, who was hanged as a witch at Salem, July 30, 16(2. Fifteen miles of copper wire be longing to the Postal Telegraph com pahy have been stolen between Co shocton and Philadelphia. Near Ladow's Mills, Pa., a white rattlesnake, the only one of the kind over known, was killed. It was three and one-half feet long, and had eleven rattles. At a meeting of colored citizens held near Vicksburg it was resolved, on account of threats by white men to go to some other country if not protected by land owners. Citizens of Umatilla county, Ore gon, are greatly excited over the mys terious disappearance of Wim. Ed wards, a wealthy sheep buyer. who recently came from Chailias, Idaho. Edwards owns a large ranch in Ida ho and cane to lUmatilla county to purchase sheep. He suddenly disap peared and not the slightest trace can be discovered of him. Labor strikes still continues very fashionable in the East. A diabolical attempt to fire a ten ement house in New York, and thus jeopardize the lives of half a hundred of its inmates, was frustrated by an aceident. SUBSCRIBE FOt TEE On ly $3. per Year.
