CROPS IN SAND COUIIE. Crops Looking WVll-A Large Yield of 1 Smaull Fruit Expected. a Despite the unusual drought of the past s few weeks, crops of all kinds in this val 0 ley are growing well and give promise of s an abundant yield. As early as the 20th e of May Mr. Joseph Anderson had pota toes in bloom on his "Rocky Hollow" ranch. Corn, wheat, .oats, barley and millet are a good height on all the ranch , es and early vegetables of various kinds II are in the market and have been for sev eral weeks. There is a prospect that those who are growing small fruits will make a good thing out of them this year. t It seems to be an "off season" for the hay crop, however, and many farumers are putting in late oats to cut for hay while in the milk and corn to cut green for fodder. Our farmers should all seed per Stanen %o wo to tame grasses and V Aver. At ,lsoaues .nu three heavy crops each season. Alsike clover is also a good crop. 0 B EDITORS IN TOWN. Tihey Will Make Us IS.onger Visit Next Week. V A party of agricultural editors arrived today from the east in a special car. They are accompanied by D. R. McGin nls the active representative of the Man- e itoba. Dr. Brown is an eminent geologist. Some of these gentlemen were here last 1 year. As may be seen they are editors of b I leading agricultural papers of the middle 1 eastern states, who are ona trip through n the northwest, collecting information with b regard tothe country, its resources, de- " velopement, crop prospects and general business outlook, to be used in their I papers. h Owing to the wet weather the party rt went on to Helena whence they will go to hi Butte, returning here Tuesday when they s1 will make a longer stay. n1 Among the excursion party is the vet- pi ern agricultural editor, Orange Judd, who Ai as the editor of the American Agricul- pi turist, became one of the most widely ax read and well known men in the country. fa He was a friend of Horace Greeley. He was in Mr. Greeley's office one day when the founder.of the New York Tribune re ceived a letter from a young man who wanted advice. He was a New England th farmer boy. He said his father owned a th small farm aid rather a poor one; that it vi did not require the labor of both his cc father and himself; that he saw the e cessity of strikinga out for himself; that he had a good common school education and he wanted advice as to what he had better do. Mr. Greeley handed the letter to Mr. Judd with a request for his opinion. Mr. Judd read it and replied: "Tell him to do just what has been done by several generations of my own family with good results. As the rising generation have come to manhood they have gone out be yond the range of settlement and driven new stakes. Tell him to go west." )fr. Greeley adopted the idea at once and from that incident dates the oft re peated advice of the journalist sage: "Go west, young manl" Live Stoek Rates. it The Northern Pacific announces that b the rate on live stock in Street's stable C cars, not exceeding 36 feet in length, west n bouni to all points on main line and ti branches east of and including Granite, 1 Idaho, and to all points on the Montana 1( Union railway, will be 125 per cent of the tl car lbad rate on live stock in ordinary cars e 80 feet in length. promptness.

WAJLAc, Washington. For ele by Lap eyre Bros, WELCOME TO TOWN. GREAT FALLS EXTENDS A HEARTY GREETING TO THE EDITORS. Some Notes by Professor Fred W. An.er y son-The Lands, Crops and Live stock of Montana the Golden. The Editors who are with us today could remain here for weeks and months constantly learning some new feature about this wonderful region as regards its early history, its present position as the coming great state of the northwest, its truly remarkable and inexhaustable min eral, stock and agricultural resources. A great deal has been said about the resources of lMontana; a great deal which has sounded like the proverbial "boom talk" but which in reality has been merely a sober, almost somber recital of facts well known here. And yet these very resour ces are only in their Infancyl What talk, what renown for "Montana the Golden" may they not occasion when they attain the colossal proportion of mature devel opementl WHAT A WONDEROUB CIIANOGEI Here where within the memory of com paratively recent settlers the bison roam ed in countless herds; where the antelopes I could be counted in bhands of thousands, where the wolves ranged in ravenous e packs making night hideous with their I .wild, wierd howling; where none but the t undaunted savage could safely roam, t here I say has arisen sphinx-like from e the ashes of a long and dreary past this v glorious state, destined to wave the proud eat and most inspiring banner of the whole northwest. FARMS FOR THE I'PEOPLE. Already the Oklahoma boom, for only ' it boom it was, is in the throes of death. 1 That boom was too great for Oklahoma L to support, hence its doom. liut Montana p has been unaffected by this "craze." The steady tide of true liome-seekers still li streams in. oMillions upon millions of t< acres of the choicest land are aowaitiog , for these sturdy, self-reliant people, who seek to build up comfortable homes ini our midst for themselves and their chlt- ft dren after them. 'p In the interest of the United States ag- p ricultural deparment I have visited many a portions of this goodly land, and every- ac where new and increasing light has p dawned upon me as to the future majesty hi of Montana as a state, FLOUR 8÷IINU CROPS. -- Otitrethren of-the agricultural:press, who are with us for a brief period, will find I am confident that our crops of all kinds are in a flourishing condition de spite the undeniable fact that we have suffered an unusually dry spring. They will find that not only the staple crops, like wheat, oats, rye and barley, aromise an abundant harvest, but that our fields and gardens contain crops usually consid ered less cosmopolitan In their nature, such as corn and tomatoes, to say nothing of all kinds of vegetables and roots, are in splendid condition. Potatoes were in bloom along about the 20th of May on at least one ranch to my personal knowledge and corn is now a foot high on a piece of beach land (sod plowing.) on the same ranch, HORSES AND CATTLE. Then again they will observe that our horses and cattle, running at large on the ranges, are in excellent condition, of good breeds and that the progeny born this spring is very fipe and healthy. I say nothipg of our mineral resources and prospects, for these have already gained Montana much repown, We all wish pur editorial friends an enjoyable yisit and when the} go we hope they will take favorable impressions with them, FREa W. ANwDEoON. Great Falls, June 10, 1880. Our Visitors. The agricultural editors who passed through here on Saturday returned by the afternoon train today, after a pleasant visit to Helena and Butte.

The editorial party went this afternoon to the Rainbow falls in company with Mr. C. M. Webster. They will visit Sand Coulee tomorrow to Inspect the coal mines and tomorrow evening will con tinue their journey eastward. Prof. Brown, the eminent IIoosier scientist, is looking forward with much interest to the inspection of the coal measures of Sand Coulee, Spokasno' Victory. Secretary Pope of the Helena Fair As sociation has received from Messrs. Arm- t strong and Hundley a beautiful souvenir of the Kentucky Derby and its winner. I It is one of the plates which the great Spokane wore when he ran in the derby. It Is fastened on a haIndsome card, the colors of the Montama stable, orange and blue, in satin ribbons holding the plate to the card by passing them through nail holes. In the centre of the plate is printed the following inscription: SPOKANE, WINNER OF THE KENTUOEY DERBY. May 7, 1889. One and one-half mile-weight 118. First quarter 241. Half mile 480.

This is an off year for wi.flowers here but any man who has a good-'feld of clo ver and a patch of buckwtwt-1M- hkeep at least a dozen hives of beob and make it pay big. We can keep beeh here just as well as they can in Minoneast and per haps even nlore profitably because we have milder winters and longer summers. In California large fortunes have beeno made from extensive apiaries and the lioney production in that state is imlnense.

JOHNSTowns, June 8.-Eight thousand men were at work yesterday clearing away the debris, but truth compels the statement that the undertaking has not yet been fairly started. Fires are burn. ing up and down the valley as for as the eye can reach and the air is thick with smoke and yet people fanuiliar with the situation and aware of tile efforts of this army of workers, estimate that it will take 20,000 men four weeks to clear out the heaps of ruins piled up for miles be tween the hills up and down the course of the river, BODIES CIIARRED AND BLACKENED. An hour ago the writer completed a tour of the mighty wreck in this vicinity. Dozens of human beings and animalss were to be seen on the surface, charred and blackened and in such a state of de composition that the strungest men could not more than glance at them. Eighty-six men from Altoona, under the orders of the sanitary oflicials, are scattering disinfectants over the wreckage that the railroad bridge stopped. IMANY BODIES .tILL HID. Mr. Kirk declares thousands of bodies will yet be found in this territory alone. The great trouble thus far experienced at the bridge has been caused by the mass of telegraph wires thata-eaches across the various spans through which the water has ed. Line men are badly needed to help remove the wires and Kirk says that as soon as they are gone he will rush debris through by the acre. The problem of the hour is the disposal of the debris about the Pennsylvania railroad bridge, Unless it is soon gotten rid of the stench will be so overpowering no human being can withstand it. T'IHE PNEUDIONIA SCOURGE. The pneumonia scourge grows alarm ingly. Dr. Sweet, a member of the staff at the Cambria hospital, tonight came down with a startling report to an Asso ciated Press correspondent. Dr. Sweet said Prospect hill is full of pneumonia, with some diptheria and measles. The hospital is full to overflowing and 42 cases are on the outside. They are almost all severe cases. Take it inl Ta.e, "For want of a nail, a shoe was lost; for want of a shoe, a horse was lost; for want of a horse, a rider was lost." Never neglect small things. The first signs of pneumonia and consumption can posi tively be chrecked by Dr. Acker's English Remedy for Consrmption. Sold by La peyre lro. John P.
