What the Manitoba and Montana Central are doing for Montana. The Butte Miner publishes the follow ing interview between its reporter and Mr. M. P. Benton, traveling passenger agent of the Montana Central, on a visit to his old Montana home from Portland, Oregon, where for the past three months, he has been residing in the capacity of general agent of the two great Montana feeders-the Manitoba and Montana Central railways: He said that the Montana Central & Manitoba is carrying out its mission of promoting immigra tion to Montana, as much on the Pacific coast as it Is in the crowded centers of the East. "We are flooding that country," said Mr. Benton, "with tons upon tons of our literature setting forth the superior advantages of Montana as a place offer ing homes to the settler and with good results which promise to increase all the time. The Northern Pacific has been rushing people out to Tacoma and Seattle as objective points Indiffer ent to the sections along their line before people reach there. There is no doubt Oregon and Washington present many splendid opportunities to the settler, but the road presents no induce ments for people to stop off and look at them. All its effort at present seems centered on getting people to Tacoma, and when they get there they find almost fabulous prices staring them in the face. "The consequence is they arediscouraged-that is, a great many of them are, and they. are ready to turn back. By the Montana Central's arrange ments with the Union Pacific these people are brought over the Oregon Short Line by way of Pocatello to St. Paul for S5, the same rate as the Northern Pacific makes between Portland and St. Paul, second class, and we give them ten days stop-over privilege to investigate the country along the Maniltoba in the great Northern reser vationt where we show them the finest free land in the United States." "And are ally taking advantage of the opportu nity to visit these lands?" "Certainly they are. While I was on the coast I established agencies in both Portland and San Francisco, where a good business Is being worked up its connection with the Union Pacific lines. People coming from San Francisco this way have an opportunity to go over the Shasta route to Portland and then east over the Oregon Short Line and Manitoba, or they can go by way of Ogden and take In Salt Lake, coming up this way. This makes Butte, Helena and Great Falls on the through line of travel, and as we advertise Butte atnd Great Falls, many peo ple have an opportunity of seeing them on their way to and from the coast. This, of course, will redound to the advantahe of both, especially Butte of which so many people have heard and now have a curiositytovisit, which they can gratify without going out of their way to do so." "Do the reservatlont lands take well anmong those dissatisfied emigrants you speak of at the Sound ?" "They do in this way: Mostof the land there is heavily timbered and It takes a settler a lifetime to clear it, whereas the reservation land is mostly free of timber. It is splendid rolling prairie with the finest climate in the country. There is no lack of fuel there, either, you know, the coal de posits being numerous and of illimit ible quantity. The people are bound to appreciate the advanta ges of Montana and I look to see it the rallying poinlt for the return tide of emigration from the coast. The amount of literature the road is sow ing broadcast both east and welit is bound to awaken as great enthusiasm for it as there has been and still exists for the Sound country. That place is being overdone, there is no doubt of that. Why, they claim H5,000 population in Seattle now, and there is as heavy a stream of humanity rush ing through Its streets as there is on Market street, San Francisco. With its electric lights and elec tric street railways. It has quite a metropolitan air. But there are a great number of unemployed people there, and we are working to bring back the dissatisfled homne seekers to Montsnas, and we will succeed too. The Manitoba and Montana Central has done more for immigrationl to Mon tnna since It started in thano was ever done before. Of course, It is to its interest to get settlers along the line of its road. But there has never been any effort in the past to set forth the remarkable re sources of the territory and the advantages it presents to the settler such as this road is now puttlllng forth. To be sure the great Northern res ervation has only been recently opened, but you will see the tide of emigration turned to Montana that has been pouring into the coast hitherto and whent settlers come here they will find their ex pectatlons realized and no disappointments." Montana Hallway Mall Clerks. HIIELENA, May 3.-Delegate Carter has received official notice from J. Lourie Bell, Supt. of the U. S. R'y mail service, of the following appointments of railway mail clerks in Montana: Albert Crockett of Great Falls vice Woods, retired, to run between Great Falls and Helena.

Mr. Chowen stated that through the in tercession of Mrs. Paris Gibson, who had interested herself personally in the work, Mr. Hill and the other memlbers of the townsite company had agreed to donate the lot on Second avenue north mad Third streetto the library association. This lot is valued at $8,500 and those present were gratified at the generous of fer, as well as at the interest taken in the matter by Mrs. Gibson. On motion the chair appointed H. P. Rolfe, C. M. Webster, Rev. John Reid,Jr., Mrs. A. G. Ladd and Miss Rich a com mittee to propose a plan for organization and to call a meeting at some suitable time. It was thought that a reading room should be opened this simmer and that there would be a liberal donation of hooks and money from Vhe people here and away for this purpose. Great Falls is destined to be an educational centre and the public library proposed will be a valuable adjunct to education. FISH FOR THE UPPER MISSOURI. The following letter speaks f( r itself.

"How to Get Strong and How to Stay So," was the title of a little book that a few years ago was very popular with people interested in physical culture. But a book which should tell us how to stay young would be still more popular. Saying nothing about the fabled "Foun tain of Youth," which Ponce de Leon searched for, there is no question that much may be done to stay young. The observance of sound and sensible hygienic rules, the use of suitable and wholesome food, and keeping regular hours, will do much to preserve youth. One of the greatest helps is to avoid worry. When you travel, the best way to avoid all worry is to take "The Bur lington." Its smooth tracks, its luxurious sleeping cars, and tile delicious meals furnished on its peerless dining cars, make "worry" absolutely impossible.
