Ttio benefits accruing to the mm- tral Interests of the state from the establish- tncnt of tbo works are Incalculable.

The cobalt blossom overlay ing the hard mineral is about thrco foot thick and is exceedingly rich. Ono peculiarity about this olossom Is that when taken out and placed In n room it gets very hot and retains 1U heat for six or eight hours , when it cools off and falls to pieces llko mocking llmo. it smells very BtrotiRly of sulphur. About thirty fcot of iron ore was gone through oeforo , the cobalt tvas struck.

Frederick says-that development work Is about all that is noxv being dona on tno Iron clultiis , but ho has great hopes for the lutuic and thinks that at no distant day tno Harlvlllo district will bo famous the world over lor tbo quantity and richness of Us minerals. At Silver Crown development work goes steadily on and great things arc expected of that district.

Ho was ono of the noted big four in the democratic party of the Plato , his colleagues being ex-Governor Hausor of Helena and Marcus Daly and A , W. Clark of Helena. Although ho did not seek or hold office , bo was nevertheless a power In the councils of the party , and displayed in poli tics tbo sagacity and aggressive enterprise that distinguished him in business affairs. Charles A. Broadwator was corn in the town of SU Charles , St. Charles county , Mo. , September 23,1840 , making him at the time of his death 02 years of ago. Ho grow to young manhood near bis native city. Ho wont to Colorado in 1SCO , and when sold was discovered at Bannock bo came to Montana. Ho Joined one of the first expeditious and BOOH arrived at the now Eldorado in the fall of 1SG2. After a brief season in the mines ho entered the freighting business , in which ho continued until the railroad came. Ho was also a contractor. In nil bis ouslno.is ventures ho was remarkably successful and amassed a fortune. Ho pos sessed a genius tnat was phenomenal , and It Was all directed toward banoQUng tno slalo of Montana. Ho was ono ot iho promoters of the Great Northern railway and with Hon. Paris Gibson was ono of President Hill's chief supporters in that great under taking. Ho was president of the Montana Central railway from thu time of its organi sation unlil bis death , end ho established the Montana National bank In Helena , ono of tbo leading : llnancial institutions of the stale. But Iho institution in which Colonel Broadwator took greatest pride , and which will always remain an enduring monument to his memory , was the Hotel Broadwator and nalatorium. The establishment of these great institutions required a largo outlay of capital ana indomitable pluck. Ho was' largely interested in mines , and bo owned many of the best properties in the Ton-Mllo district and at Noitiart. Too colonel's adventurers while bo was on- oned in bis experiences of early days were often exciting and sometimes dangerous. Ho became perfectly familiar with tbo roughoat side ot pioneer life. Throughout it nil bo was uniformly a man of cheerful tem perament. Ho made warm friends every where , and In hli early experience be dis played the rare executive qualities w.hicb , in later life , proved to bo ot ereut account to pirn when bo wai engaged in adrentures on jm impressively large scale.

Colonel John Doylo's won derful vinegar mine in Boavcrhoad county passes the domain of doubt into the sunlight ofltuth. It Is backed by crttp aflldavlts. and aflldavlts cost $1 each In Montana. The colonel and bis partners did not conllno themselves to vinegar. They discovered a mountain of nuro alum Iu. the Beaverhoad run co. The discovery was considered a ton- strike ana bettor than a gold ralno. They kept tbo und a secret for several wcoks , dur ing xvhlch a shaft was sunk to the depth of 300 feet , . The cut was irmao alt the way through a solid voln of alum , ana It was oui- nmtud that the whole mountain wus con ) , oo od of It. A largo pile of the stuff was heaped near tbo mine , ready tor shipment , and the miners hnduschomo to tlood the market with their product and rake in 31,000,000 at ono foil swoop. Last Monday Iho colonel's partner wont to town to lay in a supply of grub and the former remained behind 'to guard their treasure. During the morning n heavy rain began to fall and continued nil day and m the otter- noon the colonel hnd occasion logo down into thu mine , making the descent by sliding tlown the rope nnd when once down at the boitom was so taken up with a contempla tion of his novel and wonderful mine that bo did not heed the fleeting hours until ho hnp- pcuod to cist hU c.vcs upward and saw that daylight had faded from the mouth of the shaft. Ho started to climb upward , but had not proceeded moro than half way when to his horror ho discovered that the heavy fall Of rain had so thoroughly saturated the alum si ( < es of tno shaft that as a natural result they hnd drawn top-other until tno hole was scarcely largo enough for a man to crawl through. Tno imprisoned man recognized his awful position and without losing much time struggled toward the top or the shaft. Every foot ho advanced the shaft became smaller , and for the last ten feet ho was compelled-tn dig bis way up with u pocket knife , and when ha finally reached the surface ho was completely exhausted , his clothes were torn and his body badly bruised. The rain was still falling , which soon revived the colonel , and bo started towards the camp to meet his partner , to whom bo related his remarkable experience. Together they re turned to tholr mine , or at least tried to , for although they searched for two days they were unnblo to find any sign of tholr late possessions. The rain had undoubtedly thor oughly and tightly closed up the discovery shaft and molted away every sign of the alum piled on tbo outside , so that to this time It has boon Impossible to find any trace of the mine.

While rival rallroadsjiro straining every coint tu demolish space and distance previous records of sceed , an inventive genius In Tacoma - coma promises to throw dust in the eyes of all competitors. According to reports of scienllbc mon , M. L. F. Cook has tolved the problem of rapid transit , with cable or plec- triclty as tbo motive power. It , is a modiQed form of tncyclo road. The double tracks only occupy ono foot in space , and are car ried on a single line of piera twelve Inches square , and of proper height , so that the bottom of the car , which is carried from the top , is twelve .or fourteen feet from the ground. Tbo car being earned from an upper corner has a side gravitation at the bottom where the drive wheels , placed hori zontally in the bottom of tbo car , and driven by an electric motor on the car , bear against the rails ; and electricians claim that by this combination two miles a minute may bo attained. Tbo cars travel in opposite directions on opposite sides of tbo pinrs and , owing to the manner they are attached to tbo upper track , cannot bo derailed. The cars are only three feet wide , are constructed of aluminum and will not weigh more than the passengers. Passengers will got In and out at the side of the car. Mr. Cook bos been allowed patents on his systems , and claims to be able to make any curve , grade or speed that may bo required.
