Makes many lives miserable, and often lead« to

ache, heartburn, sour stomach, mental depres

Increasing disease. Howl's Sarsaparilla tones the
stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy
digestion, relieves sick headache, clears the
mind, and cures the most obstinate cases of dys
pepsia. Head the following:
" I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, and what I did eat distressed
me, or did me little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, alhgone
feeling, as though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense amount
of good. It gava ma an appetite, and my food
relished and satisfied the craving I had previously
experienced. It relieved me of that faint, tired,
all-gone feeling-. I have felt so much better since
I took Hood's Sarsaparilla, that I am happy to

concerning the ease of deputy United
States Marshal Nagle. The report says
the facts show the killing of the late
Judge Terry was intentional nnd delib
erate, and that while the constitution
and laws of the state require that crime
against its laws should ho tried there un- j
less the accused was taken from the
power of the state by a pro jess eminat
ing from the United States circuit court, i
The report continues that the United !
States circuit court has decided that
Nagle cannot lie tried by the state court j
essentially for a like want of jurisdic
tion. from which it is fair to conclude
that he cannot be tried in any court. j

A new process for burning coal with

It consists in sprinkling water contain

the coal, and the result is that there is |
no smoke and the glow is as intense as j
coke. An English company is to be j
formed to work the new patent. An au- '

works admirably, and in its fire is a re- j

Miner: Work on the Northern Pacific
and Montana is progressing much more
rapidly than the general public seems to
he aware. Trains are now running on
both ends and all supplies necessary for
building purposes are delivered at
almost all points by construction trains.
On the east end thirty-six miles of the
t ra °k have been ironed, from the Canyon
house, at which point the road connects
with the main line, towards the Jetfer
son. From this end a little over four
miles of iron have been laid and hut a
very short time will elapse before the
track is completed as far as the tunnel.
The latter, it is thought, will he finished
in about four weeks after which the re
mainder of the work yet to be done will
he comparatively light. The prediction
that the entire road would be completed
and ready to he turned over to the op

seems in a fair way of being verified,

ment for this year as returned by
Assessor McDonald. The valuation on
land was reduced by the county com»
missioners about 850,(MX) from the figure*
shown below. As will he seen every
item shows an increase as compared
with the valuation of last year. The
numlier of cattle lias largely increased,
hut the valuation is hut little more than
last year, owing*to the fact that the as
sessed valuation was reduced from 820
per head last year to 815 on this year'*

Just after last Friday night's east
bound freight had pulled into the yard*
the attention of several railroad men
were attracted by cries of distress in ther
vicinity of the freight depot, and upon
reaching that locality discovered a man
lying beside tlie track with his right
leg mashed just below the knee. As.
sistance was procured and the injured
man was carried to the baggage room of
the passenger depot, where he gave hi*
name as Joseph Noble, and claimed to
hail from New Y'ork city. According to
his story lie, in company with three
companions, was beating his way ovef
the road and had reached this oity on
the freight train upon which he met
with the accident. When the train
stopped in the yard he got off of the oil
tank car on which he had been riding
and was arrested by the night yard
watchman, but succeeded in regaining
his liberty and attempted to make hi*
escape by jumping over the bumpers
between the cars of the moving train,
when he slipped and fell to the track.
He was not discovered until the train
had passed its entire length over him.
His leg was terribly mangled from the
knee down to the ankle. He was taken
in charge by the county and removed
to the New York house, where Dr.
Shawk, the county physician, amputated
his leg above the knee. At last account*
he was resting comfortably nnd the pros
pects are that he will survive tin* shock
and recover with the loss of his leg.
In commenting upon the recent elec
tion in this state, the Salt Lake Tribune
says: "Left to themselves, the voters
of Montana would cast a republican
majority of about 5,(XM). But there are
four democrats in that territory who
employ some i),000 workingmen. Not
only do they employ men enough to
make an army corps, but they are broad
gauge men who back a hundred inter
ests outside of their regular business,
who, when a public house is to lie
built, a public work forwarded or a case
of private distress to lie relievetl, are
always relied upon. It would not lie
strange if four such men could influ
ence more than 2,5(X) voters to change
their vote. It is charged that huildox
ing and IxxxUe have lieen relied upon
by these men in the late campaign.
We know nothing of the facts, but sus
pect there is something in the state
ment, because it seems to us that the
democratic vote would have lieen larger
had a simple appeal lieen made to the
judgment, the sense of justice and grat
itude of the men who toil, leaving to
the voters a free choice to vote for
whom they might please. Tom Couch
told the men in the employ of the com
pany over whose works he is superin
tendent, that he would sooner burn the
works than have any man in the em
ploy of the company lie influenced
through fear of losing his place by vot
ing a ticket in opposition to the wishes
of his employers. YVe believe that hod
his example been followed by other
companies it would have lieen more ef
fective than any other plan. As it is.
no matter what the final mtnlt may Ik.»,
we believe that the outcome will denn
onstrate that a simple appeal would
have been worth all the money that,
may have been, expended in the cauv
