Nate Wertheim SPRING NECK WEAR! Park Hotel Bloc -- We can Suit the Most Fastidious. M'K.Y ARtItEIDnEI The Proprietor of the N.,torious Sweet Grsnu Saloon Taken to Ilenton. Sheriff O'Neil of Choteau county ar rived from Sweet Grass on the Canadian line late Wednesday evening, haviing in his custody a man named McKay, a hi si accused of running a disorderly house there. lie was taken to itenton yester day afternoon. McKay ran a place called the Sweet grass saloon, which has been referred to in the T'nii N.E its tbeing a nuislan(e and a menace to the authorities of b1th sountries. A letter was also pullished in these columns a few weeks ugo fromn McKay, in which he claimed that there was no truth in the repoirt that he wras k eping a disreputable place and that the while matter was the work of parties who had a prejudice against him. The mlatter will now tbe investigated by the Choteau county autlhorities and if McKay is the much aihusid lIr sun he says he has now a splendild oppr tunity to set hiumself right. It is reported by a trustworthy gentle. man from the vicinity of Sweet Grass that the saloon McKay ran had causel mo small amount of trouble among thi smounted police who frequently visited it and on several occasions went back to their barracks in a beastly state of intox ication. Two non-commissioned ofliers are said to have been reduced to the rank of privates anti ieverely reprimand ed because of some trouble they were implicated in as a result of frequenting the saloon and getting drunk.

The late la.euted Jeames Yellow. plush in his happiest moments never surpassed a touch which we find in a recent description of a funeral in New York. Among those present was a gentleman who is not in any sense a public mans nor a seeker of newspaper notoriety. He is a very rich man, how ever, and this fact evidently filled the observant Jeames' bossum with awe and reverence. "The young man," says Jeames, with bated breath, "whose wealth is com. puted at over fifty millions, stood an attentive, devout and sad participant in the obsequies," his "pale face, fringed just beneath the ears with tufts of black whiskers, wore a melancholy expression. He was attired in a neat fitting suit of black, black gloves and tie. He stood when the congregation rose, knelt when it knelt and at when it sat. Through out the lone service he remained with set. saddened tWae, and mnost or enu tuti with bowed head. Never once did he " glance around to sme who was there and not once did 1he exchange words with his Spew comnpanion." Je Jeatnes was overcome. A gentleiman behaved likto a gentleman, and yet. r trange to nay. he is computed to be worth fifty millions of dollars! Evi dently the awe stricken Jeames sup poses thalt a nan so rich might be nat nrally esl.s.ted to weal a red coat and t yellow breiches at a funeral, to rise when the congregation Hat down, to sit down when it rose and to dance a jig when it knElt. That a rich man should condostlc.all to be a gentlemnan evidently imlazes .l:ui.;es, and with trembling fin gers he records the wondrous fact. which is then placed within the posses sion of every friend of hnmanity for the insignificant snm of two cents. These are the things that inspire respect and I admiration for a free tand independent pre.es.--larper's Weekly. I.ost in an Abandoned Mine. An old gold mine near Georgetown. Cal., long since deserted by its owners, is still visit,.l by miners who take out an occ.asional grub stake. Henry Fraser. an old Georgetown miner, went into the mine ten days ago to work a claim about a mile under ground. Ho lost his candle and matches. and was unable to find his way among the hundred.s of pas~sages. For tell dlays he was without fold, water or light, and suffered untold agonies. His friends grew anxious at his long absence and started. out in search of him. They immediately re paired to the mine alnd found hien more dead than alive. iabout a mile from the month of the tunnel. The Illine is under an old rivet chan nel, alnd vanes froml 25 to 100 feet inl width. This has ilen a ll wrked out. leaving an irregular chlnber from 10 tl t1 feet in height. tilled with rocks and gravel.

The Puturn of Natural Gas. For three years the territory from which natural gas has been drawn has not been sensibly enlarged, and except in the now fields its general use for manufacturing has steadily diminished. There certainly need be no fears that coal mining will becomo a lost art. But we are inclined to think that the pres ent tendency is mainly a halt or reac tion andl that natural gas has come to stay. Just now its uses are merely sug gestive of the future. It brings to us fuel in the most con venienlt form--the relfined essence freed from drurs, weight, impurity: self trans porting. anuokel."s,. an invisible potent agent that o,rn·e possessed of we cannot well part with. If nature cannot be do pended upon to furnish it ready made we must undertake to make it or some thing nearly identical out of coal or oil. -Engineering. The well-known Christy llat has no superior for quality and finish. The Manhattan, sole agents. Our First (Congrrs. On the first day of March, 1789!, the first Congress of the United States of Ameri ca began its first session. Though we ometiumes date our national existence from ,July 4th, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was promulgated to the world, that was really only the es tablishment of a confederacy of inde pendent states, for the single purpose of freeing themselves from the domina tion of the British Crown. Under this compact the Revolutionary War was fought, but after peace was gained, the paticular interest of the separate states began to clash, and it was evident that the General Government needed larger powers if the country was to amount to anything among the peoples of the earth. Our existence as a consolidated and powerful nation may therefore pro perly he said to have begun in 1780. The history of no nation can show such a growth in 100 years. And but a small part of our 06,000,000 people would be here were it not for railroads, for the center of the continent could not be populous without them, and the bulk of the population is in the central portion of the country. Foremost among these transportation systems is The Burling ton which gives the Northw'stern people quick and easy communications with the east, south and southwest.
