It is said the owners of the land em bracing Mount Helena are soon to make use of it and turn its altitudinous summit to good advantage. The plan proposed, we understand, contemplates the eonstruc tion of a wagon road from the city to the summit of the Mountain and the trans forming of the dizzy height into a park or place of resort for the citizens of the cap ital. The road will wind around the mountain and make the ascent with an easy grade that can be traveled by teams and carriages without difficulty. The plans are not yet perfected, but will prob- 1 ably include the erection, pf summer houses and other buildings on the spot, so that one of the possibilities of the near fu ture will be frequent picnics to the top of 1 Mount Helena, where our people can 1 dance, roll ten pins, eat sandwiches, drink 1 lemonade and indulge in other excursion- t istic pastimes at an altitude of 6,000 feet above sea level.--Herald. Honor Where Honor is Due. r- John W. Mackay was recently snonwed Ts in at Colfax, Cal., on an east-bound train. ly Mr. Mackay was in a hurry to get through into Nevada, and offered $1,000 to go 1h through with the snow-plows. The offer was accepted, and word was wired from the Central Pacific office in San Francisco to turn over the amount to the Railroad Hotel, at Colfax, to be devoted to needy "r passengers who were snowed in there. r- Many in need of assistance were hunted n up, housed, and well fed for ten days. One poor woman with two children, on the train, bound for Omaha, was entirely des L1 titute of the necessaries of life, and she e and her children silently suffering from `r hunger. Mackay found three other poor women on the train, and gave each of them e $100. The recipients cried like children, a and the scene on the train is described as a very affecting. This is the true fraternal sentiment--though the sweet, white flower is found growing outside of any order. I It Didn't Work. A St. Paul correspondent sends to the Independent an account of how a Montana boy plucked a St. Paul realty boomer which is worth repeating: "The young man caime east -loaded down with cash and drafts to a pretty substantial amount, for lie was aut to purchase a good many r uch supplies and in addition a few blooded cattle, if he found any to his liking. Being a genial and open-hearted fellow, he num'ers quite a circle of friends among the gil!ed youth of St. Paul, and they s.arted in to how him a good time. nl doing it t:yer con sumed a good deal of ciampaguc, :.:d in the freedom of conversa:tion that followed it was developed that the Montanian had some spare thousands on his person and was not averse to a little game of draw. The boys immediately made a break for the Merchants, and the game speedily be gan with five players, including a promi ner banker, a wholesale merchant, and a w, yreal estieman. The ame wais a pre ty tlff one, a otlisr fnte andi no limit, but that is the kind they play in this par tipular St. Pait circle, and of, bourse the6 Montanian wds "1ame."

It was a jack pot, and the Montanian, who may be called Cores, because that isn't his name, was dealing. The first man couldn't open, ie nor could the second, but the real estate it man on skinning his hand found an ace d, full, and accordingly hit it for $50. Cores c- glanced carelessly at his hand and raised le the $50 a cool $100, which was immedi ,s- ately covered by the St. Paulite. Then it )r came to cards, but the real estate man did P- not want any, and, in order to be accom le modating, Montana said he would do like n wise. St. Paul immediately sized up is Montana for a flush, which his ace full 1e would knock sky high, and consequently b- bet them for all they were worth. The 'r wagering was promptly met by Montana 1o with a raise of a neat $100 at every clip, I- until finally when $1,000 were on the >f board St. Paul called. Montana had been n freezing to four little deuces all the time and the ace full was nowhere. 'Ihe game lagged then, and the St. Paul bays soon 1- took their leave not very well satisfied t with their attempt to work a Montanian for his roll." 0 y.l POWDER Absolutely Pure.
