After a visit in the last named state, he will drive to Chlwana. where he has other relatives. "lrv." knows the west like a book and there is no danger that he will get lost. A reports comes from the Swetl Grass hills that the miners at work in the Hal cyon have begun a cross cut on the vein and have gone in 17 feet without striking the walls. This mines contains an im mense body of rich ore and there is now no doubt that the advent of the railroad will make a good camp in these hills. [From Thursdoy's Dnlly.l The Great Northern railway has placed on record a right of way deed from the Townsite company for the track now laid.

Mrs. Edwards is the daughter of Charles Wegner and is much esteemed by her many friends in Great Falls society, all of whom will wish the happy pair much felicity. Tuck & Huelster have reached First I avenue south with the maint sewer. A atrata of water and quicksand at the crossing of First avenue south is causing much additional work, ha; the sewer acts as a drain and carries the water out as fast as it collects.

Marsh, a Boston capitslist, who-is here for a month's visit with his old-time friend, Major George F. Field of Sand Coulee.
