The fresh young gentleman who now adorns (or imagines he does) the editor ial chair of an evening paper in this city with his "splendid mentality," has evi dently fallen in with some old "bum," who, seeing in him a fit subject upon whom to practice and one who was like ly to swallow any kind of a "stiff," has posed before him as an old-timer and stuffed the aforesaid f. y. g. full with the probable object of securing the where with on which to get "full" himself. Whether he succeeded in this we can not tell, but the result is shown in the string of words in last Monday's issue. We are inclined to be charitable,' and thereforeiwill not charge any deliberate intention on the part of the f. y. g. to in sult the class of men who have done more than any other toward the settle ment and development of Montana and the whole northwest; men whose worth and whose value to the territory in days gone by and at the present time the young man's "splendid mentality" is uuable eith...

"No," said the horse reporter, "the society editor isn't in. "Did you want to see him?" "Oh, awfully," was the reply. "Is Beatrice Perkins going to Muk wonago for the summer again?" asked the horse reporter; "because if it's any thing about that we keep that in type." ',No, it's nothing like that." ''Nothing about several well-known society young men on the North Side are about to organize a riding club, is it? We've got that already, too." "I never ride," said the young man. "I wouldn't advise you to, unless you take along a postage stamp to make you sit quietly on the horse."
