O(: of the horses broke his leg and subsequently was shot. Mr. Lee fortunately est'aped injury. While Mr. .honathan Goon of Sanil Coulee was prospecting for water on his ranch, hlie ran across a parti:ally cruimled I specimen of Indian lasket-work eigiht feet lbelow the surface.

What Might Have Been. Cleveland displayed his ingratitude in vetoing the Indian reservation bill. J. J. Hill who was chiefly interested in its approval and who has already made heavy investments, which will be a total less un less the right of way be grant:d through the reservation in question, contributed $28,(O00 to the pot needed to insure the election of the man who has just killed the bill. A decent sense of the f the gratitude might have overcome the president's alleged scruples but in his anxiety to pose before the country as a reformer and a foe to corporations, he tas sacrificed the interests of his friend, without whose very liberal contribution hoe might even now be a second-class unmarried lawyer in Buffalo, New York.-- Inter )ountaiu. Indian Nerve. Alex Robinson, formerly of St. John. lut now of this city, was an eve-witness recently of a barbarous sun dance, partici p':ted in by some of the Turtle mountain Indians. One young buck perforated himself through the muscles of the breast, passing a pointed stick from nipple to nipple beneath the muscles, lie then tied a string to each end of the stick and fastened the strings to the bridle of his horse. Walking backward lie led the horse about the hills and over the ground -where the sun-dance was taking place. Another equally nervy and equally foolish buck forced a pointed stick through the muscles of one of his arms. Through the wound thus made, a string was passed, and to the ends of the string was fastened a piece of raw meat. The buck then parad ed :about dragging the meat on the ground. The object of this act of self inflicted cruelty was to "keep the devil away." These are the Indian children whom Uncle Sam is spending large sums to civilize.--Devil's Lake Inter Ocean. Sage Opinions of the Press. One serious result of the dry weather 1 which is to be apprehended, is fire on the 1 ranges. The law against leaving c:amp fires burning must be rigidly enforce.--- Independent. Speaking of the United States geologi cal survey now being made in Niantana, the Bozeman Chronicle says: We all know to our sorrow that but s very small portion of Montana has ever been accurately mapped. Considerable work was done a couple of years ago by the Tras :,i itinii tal Survey, organized by Mr. Viliard. When that survey was dishl:ded, it- maps and no.tes were turned over to the G;,ol. Survey, and it is prop ably to th:at fact we owe that work is now being done in Montina. A regu lar ,Montana di lIvi. has been organized, and we may hope thit topographical work will ni w ' carried on. h.lre every 1 seasoni, unti the vhle territory is cover 01 and we have 1S a crate a .l llap o lo0:ntana as was .l4 -,:e nby te old Hiayden s'yue'v, of (',ti-t :. As tei ttopographers Scopile bie teir ".k they will be follow e'd by the 4 el',gi t. l)ele'_":'o T.oN says in regard to the recent 'ti:;,.'r ,' z'itre at .zema tn: "I have had several talks with Mhr. parks 'e :rtr!n.ug this timber matter, and Swhile he his expressed a willingness to do s .1:nliag. he se'us uncertain what todo. tle is not desirous of making the ceompanies in Montana any serious trouble, Syet he is iinclined to give the law strictest counstructio. I pointed out to him that the spirit of the law meant to prevent nuothing but the culling of timber for ex port and sale outside the state, and lhe acq uiesced that view of the law might be taken. It seems, however from this that he is 'inclined to enforce the entire letter of it." The outlook for our stock interests is just now very gloomy. There have been more abu.nant rains in other parts of the territry than in this vicinity. but the con .l:4,int is general that there is a scarcity of water everywhere. The snows 'are go.' from the imolntainls and the springs and streams are falling fast. The feed is short and thlin and fast drying up. 'i addition to all the rest, the extreme 4hot weather is on us earlier than usual and is using up our little remnaining u,4.,isire n ith great r:aidily There is tim"e for the situation to ilaprove by good ' ins and cooler weather.---Herald. A Classical Tramp. The other day a seedy looking" speci ,..en of iuman ity shuffled into the sanc i tum d l ery familiarly accosted us with "',..l, won't 0'o please give mne two bits to get : 0.llt.;iig to eat, I'm so thirsty I don.'t know wheare I'n goini to sl-ep tr-nilht." Hle was evidently the w reck' . of a" gm .eel ceutleman of intelli g,'nce who li:dl met with great nmisfortune a:uo probaily been stranded upon the! rocks by a tidal wave of strong drink. We si: gested that the two bits might be wanted by him to "tank up" sI ith, but Ile assured us that he neverdrank. That ihis respiration might perhatis.° give evi dence of alcoholic stimulants, but that he only took a little quinine and whisky every morning for "the malaria." lie said he was a rusty machine which had once ground out bushels of poetry for the New York Tribune; and that if we would give him any subject he would in voke the muse for a few lines. We told him that his appearance strongly indicat ed that he was in a Halifax of a fix, so we gave him that subject. lie immediately scribbled off the following poetical gem which will be appreciated by those who are familiar with classical allusions: A 1--- OF A FIX. Old ('haron rowed his boat across the river Styx, But. resting on hi soars cried "what a fix" No passengers, no anything, the very sticks Seem sluggish; all my tricks in vain do flow, To Letl:ea waters, that at sunset glow, And will not mix with Ilm~des' stream And not a gleam of hope for stragglers now To II--Il with then Old Cerberus,.you d-d Bow wow. With a hearty "God bless you," this nondescript bard pulled his tattered coat up around where he ought to have had a vest and shirt, and bowed himself out. A Perfect Baking Powder. The great success of the Royal Baking n powder is due to the extreme care exer t cised by its manufacturers to make it entirely pure, uniform in quality, and of the highest leavening power. All the I scientific knowledge, care and skill at tained by a twenty years' practical ex perience are contributed toward this end, and no pharmaceutical preparation can be dispensed with a greater accuracy, pre I cision and exactness. Every article used t is absolutely pure. A number of chemists are employed to test the strength of each ingredient, so that its exact power and effect in combination with its co-ingredi Seants, is definitely known. Nothing is k trusted to chance, and no person is em 3 ployed in the preparation of the materials used or the manufacture of the powder, who is not an expert in his particular branch of the business. As a consequence, the Royal Baking Powder is of the high est grade of excellence, always pure, wholesome and uniform in quality. Each box is exactly like every other, and will retain its pow"rs anl produce the same and the highest lcavening effect in any c.imate, at any time. The Government Chemists, after having analyzed all the principal brands in the market, in their r ports placed the Royal Bak::!in Powder at the heal of the list for strength, purity and wholesolteness, and thousands of 1 tests all over the country have further dem onstrated the fact that its qualities are, in every respect, unrivaled.

A retired newspaper man (fortunate soul) writes of a pleasing experience with Mr. Vanderbilt: "I went to inter terview Mr. V.," he says, "and the big man was smilingly silent.

'Well, by George, I like a man who can make money out of me,' said the railway king. 'It takes a smart man to do it; fire away with your questions.' "---Troy Times. Entirely Free From Pain.
