A Communication on Crows.
The following communication lias be received at this office from a who knows whereof he speaks : Dear Sin: In an item which you lately copied from the Stock Growers' Journal, and by eoj ying made your own, you express surprise that the Crow Indi ans should bave got along so well as to be now hauling their own freight. This no new thing at all. They hauled some freight as early as *61 and '82 and all their freight the year the railroad readied Billings. They did not bau! unv freight the sca SJU o f '84 for di e reason tl tat they were eng a: red In mo vin g the agon ey to the new local; ion on tl il' Little Big Horn, w Inch was i lone i-xcli isii cly by tbe Indians and was quite an UI idcitaking for them, as tii ere were la ■B* • quantitie s of supplies and some betr .y maeiiitiery I sup pi.se you v .ill smile , 11 ut it is a 1 fact, that one of tin • very best t L ldims in tl ie tribe a ctu-1 ally 1 tilled him sei f lifting 1 wavy frei ght. They bave ball ilec 1 their fro iglit supi (lies ever since, exi e P ting po.-sii dy flour, the conti ; le ts for u lilt :li baling usually 1 wen let de live red. As to their having 400 wagons, that may or may not Ire a thing to lie com mended. Tl haste—ol g thereby toad tin •li a thing a.? undue ;.d too fast- and Indians to be im provident. For instance, I think you will no! dispute the proposition that no Indian should have a wagon issued to him who! has not actually settled down to live in a house, or the other proposition, that it is ridiculous to is.-ue to any Crow Indian a mat lime. mow In the matter of ai Crows, the democratic entitled to credit only for continuity work laid out for them. Under the re public m administration tbe entire valleys tting lands to the administration is ,l u , mini of the Little and Bi lowstone, from tin Horn up as far as sectioni/.ed and a special agent was en gaged during an entire summer, under a republican administration, allotting lands, anti tlie work was inaugurated and carried on so well that Inspector Frank Arm strong, who is die most trusted inspector under the democratic administration, de clared when lit: visited the agency, before a democratic agent bad yet been in charge, that the Clows had a better start than any Indians lie had inspected. ; Horn and the \ol mouth of the Big Huntley station, was J low comes it, I would like to ask, that , . , , . , . nopatent has as yet been issued to any, 1 * Crow Indian during the three years last j past? It is incomprehensible that there j should not have been several hundred j . . patents issued betöre this tune. As the 4 I sued before this time. As the case now stands there is nothing to pre- j vent the crows from being despoiled of their homes and moved off into the wild erness if any place can be found to move them to. In the matter of constructing irrigating ditches, which any man of sense would do if lie was managing thut business on i bis own account and had the means, the I democratic administration lias alwas ridi culed the idea and said it was no use. Fight miles of these ditches were con structed under the republican administra tion und thirty miles more were located and plans and a cost of $300, and completed during tl the démocratie administration lias allowed the work to stop. This letter i> writhn solely that you may be informed that ill republican ad ministration isenlii.rii to the credit of starting the Crows en lie light road. I have not definite information, but am wil ling to bet two to one that the Crows haven't as many stock cattle to-day as they had at the close of the last nound-up under the republican administration, not withstanding the fact that there have been at least 1.000 bead brought ou to the res ervation for them since that time. X. X. j purifications completed at j lould have been easou of '80, but j From Rig Timber. Ki>. Kktkrpkisk: —I always knew that the press was "powerful," but as an ex emplification of the power I want to cite au instance of momentous import to the citizens of Big Timber. Scarcely had my last letter, in which you will remember I «ailed the attention of the railroad offi cials to the fact thatthere was such a point as Big Timber on the line of the road, scarcely, I say, had this letter emanated from the press when we received a token that we were not forgotten. Some offi cials arrived in a special car and their mission was soon made known. They came to paint the depot. It was a touch ing sight to see the citizens and passen gers gather round and ascertain whether or no it w as fresh paint with which they were coloring its erstwhile dingy sides. After the excitement had in a measure subsided, Dr. Parberry, who is a demo crat, m a moment of forgetfulness under took to convince Geo. Hatch and others that protection didn't protect. lie backed up against the side of the depot and said : "This coat which I now wear, and the coats of 20,000,000 other citizens of this grand republic are protected by an odious tariff." Here the doctor raised and low ered his brawny arm and swiped off a lot of fresh paint. "I need no coat of mine protected," and the other arm went up with the same result. At this moment the president of the paint car came around and quietly told the doctor that if his coat didn't need protection, the depot did. The doctor subsided. The first snow of the season at Big Timber occurred Wednesday, a be is all Mr. Joy and I)r. Collins entertained crowd at the school house on Saturday night. The only criticism I have heard was that they talked too long. The township officials will probably re-elected. Big Timber is satisfied with Livingston as tbe county seat. McDonald, the democratic candidate for county assessor, has many friends down here and will probably get a ma jority vote. Doubtful things are very uncertain, however. The Big Timber school is in a very as I : | prosperous condition. The patrons and scholars are united in giving the credit for its efficiency to Mrs. Hunter. H. C. Pound & Bro. expect four cars of thoroughbred cattle from Minnesota for their ranch on Little Elk, in Meagher county. The universal opinion among piospect ors with whom I have talked is that the Boulder mines will be the scene of great activity next year. This means a great deal for Park county.

Ncgntiations are going on between the president of the university of Southern California and Alva Clarke of Cambridge for the construction of a 42 inch lens for j the biggest telescope in the world, to be erected on one of the lofty mountains near Los Angeles. Clarke says lie can make such a lens in five years for $100, a j ooo It will be eight inches larger than is j the Lick telescope, and will bring the a moon within sixty miles of the earth. The university designs to secure the co opération of Harvard in astronomical j work. The university lias a large landed endowment, and there is much local pride , ! here to have the largest telescope in the A dispatch from Potcuza, Italy, says that ten cars of a train crowded with cx J cursionisfs returning # from the Naples fetes were crushed in a remote portion of j district by a land slide, consistin' about fifty metres of rock. The Te graph line being broken by the fall of rock, help was delayed two hours. Tin scene that followed the disaster was hor rible. Seventy injured passengers and ninety corpses li ive been taken from the wreck. There arc still two cars buried beneath the rock, and it is certain that the list of dead will be increased. The work of excavation continues.

Deer Lodge New Northwest: When ever it is possible the composing and press rooms of a newspaper are retired from the public street and are not gen erally open to the public. This is done j fj iat there may be as little interruption from conversation and intrusive eyes j as possible. Sometimes this is not pos si hie, and visitors should remember that all conversation other than that con nected with the business of the ofiice interferes with the workmen, is a cause of delay, bad proofs and expense to the publishers and should he avoided. Fur ther than this, "copy" in the hands of a compositor, or any one connected with a printing oflice. is rightfully regarded as private and confidential until pub lished and issued to the owner as a per sonal letter, and is always treated so by an honorable printer. Visitors should therefore, bear in mind that any copy» proof or impression of any matter or job in a printing office is entitled to the same rights of non-inspection until duly issued therefrom, as are the books and letters of a banking or any other busi ness house, and the publishers, compos tors or pressmen should not be sub jected to the annoyance of scrutiny of the same any more than should the manager or bookkeeper of any business house. People don't think of these things always, but they are true and should be borne iu mind. Especially during the campaign printing offices are kept busy. They can then least af ford these intrusions on the time, or that through cuirosity visitors shall scrutinize or carry off copies of work or dered and paid for by other persons. If these things are given ß moment's thought, they will doubtless be avoided Catarrh cured, health and sweet breath secured by Shiloh's Catarrh Remedy. Price 50 cents; nasal injector free. Sold by M.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, on being I'a - w en the trainingof a child should u, replied, "A hundred years before it is born." \n* we to infer from this that this gen t-ru'i n is responsible for the condition of the race a hundred years from now? Is this wonderful generation the natural result of the proper diet and medicines of a hundred years ago ? It is conceded in other lands that most of the wonderful discoveries of the world in this century have come from this country. Our ancestors were reared in log cabins, and suffered hardships and trials. But they lived and enjoyed health to a ripe old age. The women of those days would endure hardships without appar ent fatigue that would startle those of the present age. Why was it? One of the proprietors of the popular remedy known as Warner's safe cure,has been laithfully investigating the cause, and has called to his aid scientists as well as medical men, impressing ui>on them the fact that there cannot be an effect without a cause. This investiga tion disclosed the fact that in the golden times simple remedies were adminis tered, compounded of herbs and roots which were gathered and stored in the lofts of the log cabins, and w r hen sickness came on, these remedies from nature's laboratory were used with the best effects. What were these remedies? What were they used for? After untiring and diligent search they have obtained the formulas so generally used for various disorders. Now the question is. how will the olden time preparations affect the people o! this age, who have be m treated, undef modern medical schools and codes, with poisonous and injurious drugs. This test has been carefully pursued, until they are convinced that the preparations they now call Warner's Log Cabin reme dies are what our much abused systems required. Among them is wh it is known as Wai ner's Log Cabin sarsaparilla, and they frankly announce thaï they do not con sider the sarsaparilla of so much value in itself as it is in the combination of the various ingredien's which together work marvelously upon the system. They also have preparations for other diseases, such as ''Warner's Log Cabin cough and consumption remedy," "Log Cabin hops and bucliii letnedv," "War ner's Log Cabin hair tonic." They have great confidence that they have a cure for the common disease of catarrh, which they give the name of "Log Cabin rose cream." Also a "Log Cabin plaster," which they are confident will supplant all others, and_ a liver pill, to be used separately or in connection with the other remedies. We hope that the public will not be disappointed in these remedies, but will reap a benefit from the investigations, and that the proprietors will not be em barrased in their introduction by dealers trying to substitute remedies that have been so familiar to the shelves of our druggists. This line of remedies will he used instead of others. Insist upon your druggist getting them for you if he hasn't them yet in stock, and we feel confident that these new remedies will receive approbation at our reader's hands, as the founders have used every care in theii preparation. How Doctors Conquer Death. Dr. Walter K. Hammond says: "After a long experience I have come to the con clusion that two-thirds of all deaths from coughs, pneumonia and consumption might be avoided if Acker's English Cough Remedy were only carefully used iu time." This wonderful remedy is sold under a positive guarantee at the Albe marle drug store. Careless Mothers. Many mothers have permitted their children to die before their eyes when they might have been saved.
