Woods, a most successful rancher living in the upper Sun River valley was in town Thursday. He brought in a load of potatoes and had no difficulty in dis posing of them at five cents per pound. Dancing and Kissing. I have seen thousands of people gath ered at Rocky Point, day after day in sum mer, with dancing going on all day long, and never a word or an act that I should be unwilling to have a young person see, writes Col. Higginson in Harpea's Bazar; and I have seen at country church gather ings, where dancing would have been thought a sin, romping and rudeness, such as no young girl ought to take part in. In view of this, there is something very curious in the way in which revivalists, like the Rev. Sam Jones, lavish their in dignation on the lesser evil and ignore. the greater. "I have been hunting for a dancing Christain for many years," said Mr. Jones in a late address, "and I have never found one, for I used tobrun with that sort of cattle before I was converted. I don't want any man to cut a figure on a ball-room floor with his arm around my wife or daughter, and I don't believe you do. Purity-purity is what we want." But if the contact of the arm is objec tionable in the dance, where there is no I .kissing, does that contact become purer when it is the prelude to a scuffle and a smack ? Are the young girl's lips less sacred than her gloved hand or her waist ? I confess to a surprise sometimes at the I composure with which mothers can sit in a ball-room and see theirdaughtersrevolv ing in the arms of men they know to be 1 coarse if not vile; but the contact is, after all, comparatively slight and temporary, whereas the thought of having received a 1 kiss from such a person would be to a truly refined women an ignominy which the waters of the Atlantic ocean could not I easily wash away. To those who believe it possible or de- I sirable for very young people to live with out social intercourse, or to live wholly by religious and intellectual companion- ? ship, I have nothing to say, except to ex- t press disagreement with the belief. If all that our youths and maidens can reasona bly demand is a prayer meeting or' a course in Sanscrit, be it so. But if they are to have social amusements together we must consider which are the most in nocent; and if the choice lies practically, t in our country towns, between kissing and dancing, can any person seriously I : doubt which is the best? - A Young Woman's Strange Fatuity t JMowZr HOLLY, N.

Is within seven miles of the most extensive COAL and IRON district in the West, immediately beyond which are rich GOLD, SILVER and COPPER districts. It lays tributary the b et agricultural and -grazing part of the Territory, and the pineries othe Upper, Missouri and tributaries.

When her father learned of it he was very 2 angry. The girl said that there was noth ing wrong in teaching a colored man who was ambitious of making something of himself. She had taken an interestin him for the reason that he was anxious to im I prove himself, and as she understood music she thought there would be no harm in teaching him. So the matter was al lowed to go on for a while, but of late she has been seen in the back streets at night t in the company of the negro. Last week Mr. Sever left for Virginia, saving that he would not return to Mount fIolly. He feels the disgrace keenly. Yesterday ' Mrs. Isaiah Sever, an aunt of- the young woman, swore out a warrant before Justice C1 oley for Sutton's arrest. He is ndoy in jail. The feeling against him is very bit r ter. It is said he has a wife in Philadel s phia. The Gold Seekers Return. BUTTE, May 26.--George W. Irvine, Billy Wilson and others, who went to ex amine what was supposed to be a new Leadville, haveireturned. Mr. Irvine stated that the location of the district is on Big Lost river, about 125 miles west of Poca tello, over a hard country by stage and on horseback from that point. The mines 1 have been worked for some time, one t shaft being down about 150 feet. The place is almost deserted, and the proper ties are rendered valuable only by the re cent prospects of railroad connection. There seems to be an extensive vein sys tem and the outcrops are prominent. The r country is feldspar and porphyry and the 6 veins are contact.. The ore bodies as far I as developed are extensive and regular, one of the ledges which Mr. Irvine sam pled having an average width of 2$ feet. As to the value of the ore the gentleman is not sanguine. Although the 150 samples which he brought back have not been tested, he learned enough to convince him that in silver the ore does not exceed $30 and in lead not 15 per cent. The character of the product is such that the percentage of lead is hardly enough for fluxing purposes, though iron and lime rock are abundant in the neighborhood. As a smelting proposition therefore Mr. Irvine does not look with favor on the dis trict, though it is only a question of time, he says, when it will be the scene of prof itable activity. All Same Melican Man. A man's very simplicity will betray him in his efforts to deceive. A Chinaman who desired political preferment as cook in the interior department restaurant at Washington had the badge of the Grand Army of the Republic engraved on his calling cards. Visiting an official whose influence he wished to secure, Yum Lee sent in his decorated cards with a great flourish. The following conversation ensued: "I heap likee cook." "I can't help you. A lady manages the restaurant, and she has colored ser vants." "I heap sabee. I cook for yeah in San Francisco; I heap sabee hashee; I heap sabee codfish -bow'; I heap sabee evly ting !" Then showing a Grand Army badge with pride, he added: "Me Gland Ahmy Lepublic, you see?" "I see you are a fraud,"said the official, sternly, "and if you don't look out you'll be arrested for a misdemeanor." Mr. Yum Lee had no idea what a "mis demeanor" was. but he understood "ar rested" very well indeed, so rising hastily he murmured "Good-by," and rushed off, his pigtail trembling with emotion. Looking from his window the official observed Mr. Yum Lee tearing up the guileful calling cards and scattering them to the four winds.-Youth',s Companion. Banking Progress.

Joe Davis, who came in on y esterday's coach from Benton, reports -thatsne of Ed Lewis large freight ten went over a deep cut bank, haout eight feet high y Davis says, unless the driver jumped, he 1- was undoubtedly killed orinjured, and the .o same fate seemed certain for the wheel f horses. The front wagon, which was n loaded with beer for Murphy, Maclay & 1- Co. of this place, also went down in the d wreck. 1- The Neihart Camp. e Reports from Neihart state that the mines in general are looking far better t than any one anticipated. Nearly all the e productive mines are being worked, but the snow stands in the way of prospect ing at high elevations on the mountains. e If the road down Belt creek had been n open three years ago, the Neihart camp t would be booming now. The route by a - White Sulphur Springs is still blocked with snow, and about a month from now the road will be abandoned entirely. T 2ere is no freight going over the road at present. - She Didn't See It. W "I have a pleasant surprise for you. my d darling," he said as he lowered the gas g in deference to the old man's pocketbook, "something that you will be glad to hear, I'm sure. I have made a payment on the I n house we are to live in atter a certain lit as tie delightful event takes place." e "Oh, where is the house, George? In e Fifth avenue ?" r- *'No, it's in East Newark." s- "You needn't turn the gas any lower i. George." e How Mayors are Botheredc e Mayor Hewitt yesterday received a let ter from a woman living in Hoboken ask ing him to send her "a fine gentleman bus- - L band, who is yet quite young, well and a handsome of person .in4 naturally of a] kind disposition, and whose personal prop , erty at his own disposition is valued at t about $250,000, to marry me." She says d she will pay "the expense of baggageman." A man "fresh from a steamer just arrived," is preferred.-New York Sun. it Stockholders Meeting.
