Tlie Northwest urges the building of a branch of the Northern Pacific from Garrison to Butte. As the Northwest is regaded as a Northern Pacific organ the mere fact that it urges the work may be considered a harbinger of the enterprise. Work on the truss spans of the bridge across the Natches river, one and a half miles west of North Yakima, on the Cas cade division of the Northern Pacific road, will be commenced Thursday. The bridge will consist of two spans of the Howe tru?s. 130 and ISO feet, separated by 330 feet of trestle on a sand bar. The piling lias all been finished by the con tractor. Lee Hoffman. The United States Treasury Department has authorized the American Express Company to receive the baggage of passen ger from Europe upon arrival in New York, to be forwarded immediately in bond, without examination, to the princi pal ports of entry in the United States and Canada, where the duties of each will bc assessed. This will relieve travelers from the delay and annoyance attending the present system of examination at the port of New York. The express company gives bonds of £1,000.000. Frost at Glendive. A grapevine dispatch informs us that on Wednesday night it was so cool at Glendive that frost was deposited. That night here was comfortably warm but a difference of 330 miles in longitude may mean a considerable difference in the fluctuations of temperature. It was very chilly here a night or two previous. Gallatin County Criminals. Benton River Press: Deputy sheriff Al. Harrison, of Gallatin county, returned to the city yesterday armed with the neces sary documents to take Antelope Shirt and transfer lnm to the Gallatin calaboose. He left for the Blackfoot agency this morning for another batch of Indian horse thieves, and on his return will take Ante lope Shirt. It is with the greatest pleasure that Choteau county surrenders this thiev ing: redskm to our Gallatin neighbors. Poor Topping:. Chronicle : The author of the "Chron icles of the Yellowstone,■' E. S. Topping, lias been mining in the Cœur d'Alenes for the past year with but indifferent success. Last August he began a tunnel into the side hill, with which lie expected to tap the vein of ore. which from the outcrop pings indicated a ledge of great wealth. The year's labor ended last month, and the vein proved to be composed of nothing but decomposed wood. Illegally Enclosed. A list of public lands illegally inclosed and subject to action under the presi dents recent proclamation, ordering the removal of all such obstructions, has been made public. These lands lie most ly in the southwest. The following are those in the northwest: Poindexter and Orr, Beaver Head, Montana, 90,880 acres: Charles Reaubin, Silverbow, Montana. 3,500 acres ; .Solomon Jennings, •Silverbow.

It is estimated that no less than 10.000,000 acres in addi tion to the lands mentioned on the list are illegally inclosed, of which special agents of the department have not had time to make an examination and spe cific report. A Point in Advertising. New York Star: "To advertise sue cessfully one must advertise right straight along," said a prominent New York dry goods merchant. "We once hit upon a novel expedient, however, of ascertaining over what area our adver tisements were read. We published a couple of half column *ads,' in which we purposely misstated half a dozen historical facts." "Did you get any replies ?" "I should say we did. In less than a week we received between 300 and 400 letters from all parts of the country, from people wishing to know why on earth we kept such a consummate fool who knew so little about American his tory. The letters kept pouring in for three or four weeks. It was one of the best paying 'ads' we ever printed. Our letters came from schoolboys, girls, pro fessors, clergymen, school teachers, and, in two instances, from eminent men who have a world-wide reputation. I was more impressed with the value of advertising from those two advertise ments than I should have been by vol umes of theories." the to s of de of to a is in a Merrill A Mclnerney—Dry Coods, Groceries, Drugs, Ac.
