Jas. Allen and daughter, of Sand Coulee, who have been visiting in the states during the past winter, returned home this week. The storms this spring have scattered the different horse herds very widely over the country, causing their owners cohilderable trouble. Frank Coombs and Jos. Gauvreau were attlie Falls list week. They were favor ably riripressed with the outlook, and talk strongly of locating. Hairrls the clother of Helena, has rented Judge Huy's store temporarily, until the new building, now being erected for~him, is completed. Joe. Standley is getting out some ex cellent building stone in the Coulee, which he is selling at a reasonable price. See card in another column. Messrs. Ira Myers and A. E. Dickerman left Thursday morning for the mouth of Smith river canyon. They are out for a business trip and will probably be away for a week. Dr. Fairfield spent a couple of days at Robert Vaughn's ranch. He was so pleased with the stock that he could not conte away without buying a span of splendid black shargers. t The lamb crop in the various camps, is now pretty well advanced, and the various owners expect to be through in a few days. We learn from reliable sources c the per cent. of loss is very small. A.J. Hey and W. P. Wren were in i Benton this week. -They report dull I times in the river metropolis. No town V like Great Falls for life and activity. The owner of the T horse brand, can lea.a where a number of head of his stock 're by communicating with M.

It seems to us there should be aomne more pressure. * Several mounds similar to those in the kackatchewan region, are now being ex plored near this vicinity. The results of which are expected to be interesting, -will be duly chronicled in these columns. We are sorry to learn that two rafts of Messrs. Sweaney, Ryan & }fcGirk are ashore up the river on Kennedy's Rock, and will. give the owners considerable trouble and expense in getting them under weigh again. Ground was broken Wednesday on Cen tral Ave. for the erection of a large three room businessublock 70x75. The owners, ay Messrs. Webster & Dickerman, have not 1 fully decided whether they will use brick or stone for the walls. Mr. McPherson left for IIelena last 1 in Monday. lie has been suffering for some time with a swelling on the side of his 1 neck, and has gone to the capital to seek in relief. He expects to ba gone a fort night at-least, perhaps longer. in Bishop Brewer preached to a large audience in the school-house Tuesday 1 rn evening. The Bishop is a gentleman of fine address and preaches with great effect. It is probable that an Episcopal church will Le established here at once. s If anyone wants to witness a scene et which they will never forget, let him take . : i ., fron: Hi.-l :i t: mare -t Falls in k, weather. It is infinite in the variety of its grandeur. "Moon-light in the can yon" would be a fitting subject for one of the masters. A gentleman who came through from f Helena Tuesday, reports the Prickly Pear canyon alive with men. It looks a n like the laborer's section of a city. The railroad company are squantdring a 's mint of money for fun, if they are only "bluffing" as some misguided croakers claim. ___i_ a r. Tlie river is raising very rapidly. tr There is plenty of rain falling in the t( mountains, and some snow too. We had n e such a mild winter that many old-timers ai think we shall have to make up for it by a] , having lots of rain this spring. If such T 1 is to be the case, we are likely to have em plenty of water for navigation purposes, tl until quite late in the season. R a Since the return of Mr. Webster fron tl Helena, it has leaked out that the private w bank of Messrs. C(owen, Webster & m s lickerman will be re-organized into a 0 First National at once. The details to could not be pumped out of the gentle- a men interested, but will probably be h announced next week. One thing is bi certain, namely: We are going to have a t bank that will make everyone smile "plenty." th Dr. Pottle says the report that he had pc got tract of his horse is unfounded. He ca cannot imagine whore the animal has l.1 gone. Recently, the doctor excavated a mound and found a pre-historic stone in the bottom. He says it was, or had been polished, and probably belonged to the ed glacial-period. He iaso -inf-ors ua, tht of this curious slab was evidently placed in the mound by a race of dog-faced men, fo who peopled this portion of the globe longs before the noble red man. Just so, the doctor ought to know. t21 Ces George D. Budington says Fairview is a lovely spot. Situated as it is upon gradu er al ascent south of the town, without a n- tree or a bush to shade it from the fierce m- glare of the noontide sun, it holds a com. manding view of the beautiful town and ed softly gliding river skirted by leafy cot tonwoods and wand-like willows. Yes, indeed, Fairview is a very appropriate name. Mr. Budinr'ton has recently planted some elegant poles in the garden ad surrounding his villa. We understand is that daie pole is now budding: is Mr. C. P. Thompson nas decided to go into business at Great Falls, and to that id end has leased a building on Central Ave., Is and within a few days will be ready to 'd supply the citizens of the town with everything they may require in the way d of dry goods. His stock is on the Rose. ly bud, and on the arrival of that boat he rs will proceed at once to get in shape for business. Mr. Thompson thoroughiy un derstands the branch of the trade he is ° about to engage in and we have do doubt r will become one of the prosperous and d progressive mierchanits of the future great. Thle River Press can cordially recom 5 mend Mr. Thomson to the people of Great Falls and surrounding country.-River d Press. The weather for the past week has been all that could be desired. Wednesday a refreshing breeze kindly cooled the atmosphere and then the atmosphere was 1 perfect. While we often have great, strong, robust winds here, we feel per- i ° fectly secure in immunity from tornados. There is no indication of there ever e a having been these phenominal outbursts I ' of passionate nature. In the hurricane t belts of Minnesota, Iowa and Kansas, t evidences of devastation by storms in the I remote past, were manifest to the first t settlers, therefore, the theory that tornados r f are induced by the settlement of a coun- ' try, is untenable. The elemonts presiding 5 over the atmosphiere of Montana haye no f bad habits. 1 We are lunformedthat-itis the intention i of the Towursite company to make the d planting of shade trees a special feature r, in the improvements of Great Fails. Not only will the public grounds be orna- si Suented wit'h a great variety of trees, of p which the American White Elm is the a deelamed favortý t a-a}s tcnive-apnurse ry will he established by the company, r: for the purpose of furnishing shade trees tm at a nominal price to those establishing ii homes In Great Falls. About three a hundred trees have been planted in P Cascade Park this spring, and a much em larger number will be planted the coming ti fall. No town w:est of St. Paul will have iv such a spledid system of pas.- and r drives as Great Fulls. ei gh The well known horticulturalist, let Jonothan Goon of Sand Coulee, informs vce us that his garden is coming along frst sre rate, considering the lateness of the spring. Mr. Goon has also a splendid plantation ohe f yonag:trees which is prospering finely. If all our farmers, and others.who own of land, would pay some attention to arbor culture, there would be a vast change in the appearance of the prairies in a" fow years. Treescan be grownon the bepehes of where,properly planted ,and attended to. ire The rainfall is increasing in q9antity 'k, each succeeding year and the most ule skeptical regarding the adaptability of the 'm bench lands for the growth of ti ees and crops will perforce have their unbelief ýn. destroyed: We w ish 'with all oUr heart ee that our cultivators would listen to what rs, we say in this matter and go to cultiva iot ting the benches as well as the bottoms. ck Violent and Vicious., The Helena herald throws out a vicious sat kick at Great Falls, in the following: ne "We wish to remind our West side cotem. 1is that the erection of smelting works at ek Great Falls has not;yet begun. We would further state that "their contemplated it- erection at that point" is a conception of the uninitiated and one not entertained by any great number of people. The ge proposed works will materialize nairer ay the other ehd of the line." of It will be just as well for the Herald sat man to keep cool and not delude himself dal with the idea that Heflnacan appropriate all the good things in Montana. This ,e territory is still young and its largest towns are still small. Before the railroad map of Montana is finished, and when its resources are better understood, there will be many surprises. There are two ui or three things in connection with this subject that are as certain as earthly matters generally are, an:l they are as in follows: ly First-Great Falls bill be one import , ant railroad center. Second-Its water-power and coal svill a utilized within the city limits, and will be employed in the establishment of º industries, that the resources of Montana naturally suggest and will warrant. It is as natural that the ores from our moun Y. tains shoula be shipped to Great Falls, e to l1be smelted and milled, as that the d wheat from the prairies of Minnesita ' and Dakota should be shipped to Minne Y apolis to be manufactured into flour. Ii There is no power for propelling machin e ery in Montana, that can complete with t, the water-power of the Black Eagle or Rainbow falls of the Missouri liver. If a the wealthy and broad-guage syndicate r e who are undertaking to establish a great i manufacturing center at this place, cannot a establish reduction works here on an ex s tensive scale, they i ill never be able to accompllish for Great Falls, the plans they S have marked out. It is probably the little Giant railroad builder of the Northwest has quietly mapped out the plans in St. Paul, for Great Falls, and we shall all know what a they are in due time, lie knows from ex- I Sperience, what a water-power l!ie this can, acenp!l.lil for a town, if (well em I lo' cd. SA Bg Enterprise. in :en Two years ago a company was organiz the ed and incorporated in lHelena, composed of A. 3. llolter,S. T. Ilauser nd severaa in other enterprising citizens of that city, n, for the purpose of taking out an immense irrigating canal near the head of the he North fork of Sun river, which was in tended to water the entire bench between the Sun and Teton rivers, from the is mountains to the falls of the Missouri, a lu- distance of about seventy-five miles. The a entire route of the canal was surveyed, ce and expert engineers sent out by the in. company, pronounced the scheme prac nd ticable, and made an estimate of the tumn at- her of acres of good agricultural land es, which would be reclaimed. The exact tte figures we have forgotten, but it was in ;ly the hundreds of thousands somewhere. en During the fall of '84, a contract was nd let to W. H. Green, for a few miles of the work at the head of the canval, which was almost solid rock from the surface down. We do not know whether the work was completed or not, but rather think it was not. At any rate the work th was abandoned late in the fall, and noth ing more has been heard of the canal until lately, when it was given out that work would be recommenced the present spring, and continue until the canal was completed. As evidence of this is seventeen teams are at present engaged bt on the work, atnd this force will be added td to as rapidly as others can be secured. t. The original dimensions of the ditch were: twenty-two feet wide on the bottom, a mean depth of five feet, and the length seventy-five miles more or less. It was made this size in order that timber and wood could be floated down from the n mountains, for the convenience of settlers. a Whether the original plans will be diverg e ed from, we are not advised, but are of 5s the opinion they will be, as the cost of t, cutting a canal of this size, will figure up into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, ;. and the company may conclude that a r smaller ditch will answer as well, which s it will, althouigh we should like to see e the original plans carried out. _, The consumation of this great enter e prise will be a priceless boon to Northern t Montana, and it is hoped that tho work s now commenced will be prosecuted with vigor until completed. It will open a stretch of agricultural land capable of furnishing homes to hundred of families. The quality of the land, while apparent ly not as rich, as in many other lecalities, it will nevertheless, in the hands of in dustrious fatmers yield a handsome revenue. It is claimed by theorists that the soil is particularly -adapted to the successful growingoft theat, bnt whether practical experiments will .ben" this out awaits to be seen. Th-e bulding sgf the Monitanu Central railroad into this portion of the territory, will turn a steady stream of immi~ration into this country, and all land suited for agriculture will be speedily located.

It is probable the swindling syndicate that claim to own it, have with drawn their flashy colored and purely imaginative advertisements from the Eastern newspapers, suppressed their ost prospectus, discharged their brokers, he balanced their bank account, and hied nd themselves to the sea-shoreor some other ief cool and refreshing resort where they can art ponder over the old saw: "The way of tat the transgressor is strictly tough," the Sefect of which they will fully realize in due time. In the beginning, it required 90 per cent. pure gall for this syndicate to name us their proposed town Great Falls City, and ig: afterwards, the gall it required to make n. their prospectus, wa$ absolutely pure. at Had they anything to show for their ex ed travagant claims, the scl~eme would not of appear so outlandishly. fraudulent, but ed they have not, and none are aware of the he fact better than tite .neorporators, or at -er least they should he, before they cow Id promised their reputatlina by lending if their names :andQ1 psitionr to a fraud tte which is as transparent as window glass, and fully as fragil. st It was evidently the intention of the concern to fly under the world-wide repu tation of Great Falls, a legitimate, enter re prising and growing town, which, owing to its many natural advantages and prac is ticably inexhaustible resources, has gained an envitable reputation, not only at home but also abroad, and is destined to be the first city of Montana.

Work on the en terprise was vigorously pushed during t the summer and fall of '84, and a con siderable portion of the heaviest wrk `was completed. Since that date nothing c more has been done, but we are reliably t °t informed that operations will be com- E t metced the present se:as;:., and coutinued until the work is completed. The canal a 0 will be fifty miles long and will carry n o0,000 inches of water; and is expected i to reclaim 50,000 acres land. Three- r Squarters of an inch of w;ter is consider- I Y ed sufiicient to irrigate oneý acre of gro:und s, it will be seen that the canal will car ry a sur-plus of 30,000 inches of water. The water for the canal is taken out of the Sonuthl Fork of Sun river near the moun tai;.. Ab:out six miles from the head of time c-anal is a lake, to which, during the freshet period, the water will be con lducted, and which will answer as a reser Svotir. The banks of this lake have been j ra:setl and strengthened sufficiently to Shold an inimense amount of water. The course of the canal is : few degrees south ofe:ast, for a distance of thinty-tive miles, , where it -is turned into the Muddy, a ha tributary of the Missouri.

P. railroad folks are trying t d, break the back of the ,Montana Centra ie enterprise by charging them an exho, iC- bitant price for hauling the rails for th. - road from St. Paul to Helena. By th, id rate the N. P. proposes to charge, the Ct freight bill on the rails alone wouh in amount to about $700,000. Luckily thi backers of the Montana Central are no is at the mercy of this corporation by anm means, and unless they- can secure a fail 'h rate, will find some othgr means of trans e portation, or for that mnatterthe rails car * be manufactured in Moiitana, as there h: r no lack of proper material.

A Close Call. Rattlesnakes are becoming quite lively now, and in various localities there seems to be large numbers of them, for the time of the -year. Harrison Dockery, sr. told us this week of the narrow escape his son, Harrison Dockery, jr., had from being bitten by one of these nasty snakes. l The young mana was riding a baulky! horse along a road, twenty miles from whisky, when he espied a hugeo yellow rattlesnake coiled up in the road a few feet ahead of him. He tried to stop the!horse, biet the- aitmal obstinately 'walked up close to th- rattler." The lagitter Immediately seized the horse In themeun es of the fae leg, somewhere bietween the shoulder as tshe knee, hold I g on with atenausoie grip Thearlght ened and agonized animal, whirled round and round, uttering cries of pain and tfright. Finally it sank on the ground and partly lay upon the snake, entangling in some way the foot of the rider. The 'at sake then let go its hold of the horse, Sburying its fangs into the over-ails of he ockery. )Fortuqately, the fangs after n' going through three pairs of over-alls iliot, without scratching or lacerating the `o flesh of the afrighted youth. By this ir time he extricated his foot from under the horse, and went careering over the prairie endeavoring to shake the reptile d off. Finely he became free of his un er pleasant burden, returned to his horse an and took it to Gus. Erickson's ranch oni of Box-Elder, where soda was put into the 1 snake bite on the animal's limb. In a n short time the horse recovered and Dockery went home. His father says er the narrow escape shook up the boy's nd nervous system considerably. ke --* - Thoughtful Words. x In this age of universal education, of ot rapid progress in all the arts and sciences, ut of books, periodical and newspapers we without end, it really is surprising to see at what an enormous number of people e- know little or nothing of what is going ig on all around them. They move along id through life, bearing nothing, andr Es, doing nothing for the advancement of general knowledge. They seem to be i possessed of no ambition to raise them n- solves or aid others to rise who wish to r- do so. If everyone was like such people, ig what would the world be? The human c- race would, without a doubt, sink far be is low the level of ordinary intelligence; yv there would be no progress, no cultiva d tion of the intellect, everything wonld ir deteriorate. Retrogression would be tho} y order of the day. When men see a young , man who evinces the slightest talent in o any direction thtit will in any way tend - :eit ttie race, intelletctual, moralhl, ' i -,i-v or physically, they should en - ur:-ge that youth and help him as far as lies in their power, instead of makingfun of him, often, thereby discouraging him, as is commonly done. But we would say to all rising young met, who may chance to read this, do not be discouraged. Take a: un'ntice of the (derisive laughter, scoffs, r and jee;rs of these men who are, often unwittingly enemies of the grand march of progress. The more who laugh atyou and your early efforts, are usually first class "'uincompoops" and those who are not, will live to rcsoect and admire you. - Above all, keep your own council. Do not tell people all your plans, hopes and aspirations: because they will not, can not understaud them. Be of good courage in spite of all difficulties, and you will - reach the top rurng of the ladder, while. B S:voar forme companions will be far down below: and,--they will remain there.
