For several days last week the wheat '

People seem to take to the new 5Mis
souri river road, via Dexter's ferry, like a
duck takes to water. It is the only nat
ural highway between Helena antl this
portion of Montana, and the people all
seem to recognize the fact and take ad
vantage of it.
Our northern Montana farmers cannot
afford to grow a poor quality of wheat.
It requires just as much labor and care
to produce poor wheat, which in the
market will bring only a small price, as
it will to grow a good grade of the cereal
that will bring the producer a fair price.
One by one the old-time Montanians

The Great Falls TRIBUNE, published at
Great Falls, Montana Territory every
Saturday, is on our table. It is a neat
seven-column folio, well filled with local
and selected reading matter and home
ads., with many short sketches of the
great northwest. We welcome the T'ain

Farmers desiring to secure a good qual
ity of wheat for seed next year should
read Mort. L. Strong's ad. in this issue.
The wheat is the Scotch Fife, and is con
sidered the most desirable variety that
can be grown in Montana. It yields well
and will make an excellent quality of
flour. Mr. Strong's crop yielded 37 bush
els to the acre-machine measurement.
Those desiring to secure some of this
wheat, it would be advisable to write to
Mr. Strong at once. The wheat is en
dorsed by Mr. Chowen and Mr. Graham,
the miller at the Cataract mill.
X. Beidler, accompanied by his rabbits,
buckboard and the agent delivering the
much-abused History of Montana, visited
Great Falls one day this week. X. says
for once in his life, things are coming his
way, and that by early next spring he ex
pects to control the money market of the
world, and proposed then to make Rome
howl louder than it ever has before. X.'s
prospective fortune is encompassed with
in the bosom of Red Mountain, where
he says he has owned a promising lead
for the past decade, and the present out
look for the development of his property
is promising.
Mort. L. Strong, of Sun river valley,
visited Great Falls one day this week.
This was his first visit to this place since
1874, when, in company with a Sun river
organization, he visited the present site
of Great Falls, on an Indian round up
expedition, which, however, was unsuc
cessful, as the noble reds vamosed before
they arrived. This protective organiza
tion in question, was formed during the
,early days. and under the efficient cap
taincy of ni J. did not a little
for this whole no ern country, in pro
.tecting settlers from attacks by the Pie
gans and Bloods, and it is eaid that in
the Piegan chief's tepee is a coo-stick
with a notch cut for every imnem ier of the
company, who it was considered very un
healthy to molest.
Said a ,gentleman who visited our office
one day this week: "I have just been
clown to the falls, and previously made
quite an extended trip through the sur
rounding country, and also visited the
coal min-es. I must acknowledge that I
have been agreeably surprised Iby what I
have seen, as I was not aware that north
ern Montana contained such an abundance
of latent resources. Your boasted water
power, which I feared would never need
harnessing, owing to the lack of material,
I now plainly see will have plenty to do,
and any fears which I may have enter
tained concerning the prospects of Great
Falls and northern Montana. have now
altogether disappeared. When down at
the falls, I was thinking what a furore
such an immensity of power could create
i thle d of IEd!ison and like practical
men. tce waterfalls have been em
ployed to furnishielectric power, and it is
demonstrated that they are per-fectly
practical for the purpose, it is simply
impossible to pl5ace any limit upon the
monetary value of this power, or to im
agine what the results will be when once
they are utilized, whiiich they will be for
this very purponse before many years.
Such ptractlcally unlimited power, where
its utilizatiou is so .si-!ile,. will never be
allowed to waste itself away in this day
and age of the world. Then. too,) the
surronuding country is able to su:t:dtu
thousands of producers, who will cuime
soon enough, and while btildintig iul
homes for themselves, will be the bo':ae
and sinew of the country. Of your ci,:a
mines I have nothing to say, a,. thec,' are
recognized to be superior to any west of
the Missis.ippli. Of (Great Falls I have
just this to say: It is destined to lie the
most important manufacturing, cormaier

Somewhere about '76 or "77, says the
Calgary IIerald, Campbell, from Montana,
drove a herd of horses into the North
west. Iie also very tlhoughtfully fetched
along about 60 gallons of fi yewater for an
occasional snifter on the trail and other
purposes. This whisky he cached on
High river. Campbell and his partner
were both drowned in attempting to cross
the Saskatchewan, and as for the cache
no man knevf the place thereof until this
day. There are, however, rumors tlving
about, for the truth of which wedo not
of course vouch, that the Indians who atre
at present camped in considerable nuim
hers on High river, have struck this cache
and are having an eaxceediunly high old
time with the contents. It might be. as
well for the authorities to i:ae some en
quiry in this matter, if for nothing else
than at least to save so imuchtl good liquor
being wasted on the untutored savage.
Dr. Burleigh, former-:l of Dakota, but
now living in Montana, tells a good story
on himself, which is extremely funny
when one has an opport'unity to listen to
its recital. Some time in the early '60's
he was the agent of the Sioux Indians at
Yankton. Some one, who probably want
ed the position, preferred charges against
him, and a commission was sent out from
Washington to investigate. When the
commission arrived at Yankton they were
entertained with a banquet. Dr. Burleigh
proposed that two interpreters be select
ed, one to represent the commission and
one himself. In this way one could
check the other and a fair deal be assured.
The doctor was anxious that the whole
thing thing should be probed to the bot
tom. The head chief of the tribe was
the first witness called. IHe said the great
father had sent them a very bad man;
that the agent went down into their pock
ets and took their money: that he took
goods from the agency store through a
hole in the floor-in fact he was a very
wicked man. Of course, the doctor had
both of the interpreters fixed, and this is
the way they translated the chief's evi
dence: "The chief said the great father
had sent them a great and good man:
that when they were poor and hungry he
would go down into his own pockets and
give them money to buy food; when they
needed clothing he would go into his
store and supply them." The commis
sion went -back to Washington and gave
Burleigh a fine endorsement, and he was
not removed from office.-Pioneer Press.
The history of every important center
in the west, whether it be conmmnercial,
manufacturing or railroad, shows that it
had some natural advantage, of sufficient
magnitude to attract the attention of capi
tal. No town has yet gained other than
localimportance witlhout it. It seems to
be an unwritten law, and as the country
has been wrested from the aborigines, and
its resources developeld, it has without an
exception been respected and obeyed.
These advantages may be in situation,
accessibility, available water-power, or
other advantages of eq ual importance.
Minneapolis has been a striking illustra
tion of the power of this; yet where is
the person who twenty years ago would
have imagined that she would hlave at
taimed the population she now sustains.
1Ier growth is said to have been phenom
enal. Probably it was in one sense, but
in another it was not. iHer advantages
warranted the building up of a city, de
spite the fact that her sister city, St. Paul,
was years in advance. What the history of
Minnesota has been, so will be the history
of other western Territories. W\itii the
advance of civilization, new cities will
be built, which will equal in importanrce
those of the east- Natural sites offering
superior advantages will certainly be
selected. The same unwritten law which
selected Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis
and numerous other western cities, will
govern here the same as it has elsewhere.
P'erhaps one of the most important ad
vantages is available water-power. As
suningll this to be a fact, does it not seem
probable that the Falls of the Missouri
river, which are supposed to frniish the
I'_reatest available water- power on the
continent, wouhl naturally be selected as
the site for the buildina ump of .a great
city? And when it is taken into consid
eration that these are the only falls of any
importance between the Misisssippi river
and Washington T'erritr-'y, a distance of
two thousand miles, 0oes it not S-enl aim
solutely certain that such will be ti:e
case' Ws think it does, and such is the
opinion of practical men who are thor
oughly ,ccnainted with thei almost un
limited resources of thl country surround
ing this immenlicse lower, for hundreds of
miles in every di.rcctioni. 'lh re is not
one acre of land surruiilnding it but that
is productive, and will yield a revenue to
the farmer or ostockiman. The imountains
with their rich (leposits of gold, silver,
copper an'I lead, atil the vast area of coal
lands comprising the famous Saui} ('oul-ee
and Belt creek fields, together with ithe
underlying veins of iron ore, are tributa
ry, anI will contribute their support. Such
various resources, so practically unlimeit
ed as tho-e which surround the Falls of I
the Mi.ssouri river, together with its (cen
tral location in tiheir midst, its beauti il
situatiom, its east accesilbility for rail
re::ds, and with mhe ulhoundled wealth
which is interestted directly in its devel
opleint, would seem to point towa'rds it
as the future city of the' northwest. Andil

ilndor th,e diec'tion o of the New York
State BIard of ilealth, eiglhty-four diffler
int kinl of baking pov,-h,:s, e..bracing
all brands that could be found for s.ale in I
thle State, were sublilitted to examinilationl I
and anai'sis by Prof. C. F. Cha:ndltr, a i
meniieor of the itoite Boar:d and prsident re
fo the Now York Cnin oard of li; lth,
.6.Siit,,d by Prof. Edward G. Love, the
w!ll-know'n late Unit,..l States (.overn- e
ment chemist.
The official report shows that a l:re te
number of the powders examined were
found to contain alum or lime; many of
them to such an extent as to render them
seriously objoctionable for use in the
preparation of human food. at
Alusnwas found in twenty-nine sami
pies. Tlhis drug is employed in ltakine,
powders to cheapen their cost. 'The pros
ence of lime is attributed to the impure
cream of tartar of commerce used in
their manufacture. Such cre:nt of tartar
was also analyzed, and found to contain
limo and other impurities; in some siam
ples to the extent of 93 per cent. of their di
entire weight. at
All the baking powders of the market,
with the single exception of "''Royal" (not
includling the alum and phosphate pow- -
dors, which were long since discarded as
nsa:ife or inefficient iby prudent house
keepers) are made from impure cream of na
tartar of commerce, and consequently A
contain lime to a corresponding extent. ec
The only baking powder yet found by
chemical analysis to be entirely free from tl:
lime and absolutely pure is the "Royal." st
This perfect purity results from the ex- .
clusive wuse of cream of tartar specially
refined and prepared by patent processes
of the N. Y. Tartar Co. which totally re- o
move the tartrate of lime and other im- Ib
purities. The cost of this chemically ir
pure cream of tartar is much greater hi
than any other, and on :iccout of this
greater cost is used in no bamking powder fr
but the "Royal." 01
Prof. Love, who made the analyses of
baking powders for the New York State
Board of Health, as well as for the Gov
ernment, says of the purity and whole
someness of "Royal:" w
"I have tested a package of 'Royal A
Baking Powder,' which I purchased in is
the open market, and find it composed of II
pure and wholesome ingredients. It is a bh
cream of tartar powder of a high degree
of merit, and does not contain either al
um or phosphates or any injurious sub
stances. E. G. LovE, Ph. D. W

eri-o, declared his intentions of turning
h i un rive]r herd on that range, and was
inf,,r:ed byv the reidien:t coiwmen that if
he did they would not round-up with him
and wour'l bother him plenty, or words
to that effect. The bluff didn't work.
Flowerree was not constituted in that
m tinner, and when he saw that he wouild
not lie granted any privileges by the local
association, he not only turned his Sun
river herd on the forbidden range, but al- 1
so drove up another herd from the Yel- I
lowstnme, "*nd it is pretty hard to tell who v
the Marias rango belongs to now. Flow
eree will round-up his cattle without the e
assistance of any of his bretrethren, and it is a
a "dea stad tnd off" a to who can make it t
the most disagreeable if once they get I

Delegate Toole has the following
to say in regard to the recent order
against the cutting of timber by the
Montana Improvement company:
I have felt the greatest anxiety
about this new circular, and some
time ago called on the secretary of
the interior and protested against its
approval, subsequently addressing a
letter to him reciting the mischief
which would follow its enforcement i
and the great hardship it would en
tail upon the residents of the mineral
regions. Commissioner Sparks in
terpreted the act of congress, approved
in June, 1878, relating to cutting
timber on mineral lands, that each
individual must cut the timber him
self or by his personal agent, and
cutting timber to be used as fuel in
.qnartz mills, etc., is not such mining
purpose as contemplated by the act
referred to, but is forbidden by the
act. So illiberal a construction as that
given by Mr. Sparks would, of course.
suspend all mining operations and
throw thousands of people out of em
ployment. But aside from this, it is
questionable whether the courts would
enforce sush a regulation, as the law
giving authority to make such rules
and regulations necessary for the car- t
rying out of the statute seems to me -
to go beyond constitutional authority,
in this that it is an attempt to confer
legislative powers upon an executive
department of the government. The
true condition of the difficulty, in my
opinion, is to have these lands survey
ed and to provide some method by
which the citizen can acquire a title,
and this remains for congress to do.
