A G CATTLE BALE. A. Handred Thousand Dollars Made in One Year by Downes & Alleu. A little over a year ago Downes & Al len purchased Clark & Ulm's band of cattle on the Sun river and Teton range, and had turned over to them after last year's round-up about 5,000 head. paying for the band $133,000 cash. A few weeks ago these gentlemen sold the cat tle to a syndicate, composed mostly of Colorado capitalists, at $30 a head all around, realizing in the transaction $235,000 in cold cash-the increase in value and.increase in the herd netting them $100,000 in one year! This is probably the biggest cattle sale yet made by one firm in Montana, and it certainly illustrates in a very forcible way how the wealth of our cattle kings has piled up in the past year. Messrs. Downes & Allen are most pleasant gentlemen who have made hosts of friends during their sojourn in Montana, and we trust they will make other stock invesments in the field that has yielded them such hand some retur...

A TRIP TOTHE GREAT FALLS. SBeautiful Region-Magnificent Water power and Valuable Springs. Monutana is a great country, with a great, great big G, and since the railroad has within the last two years brought us, so to speak, into the United States, we have begun to catch on to the boom or, to speak more properly, the boom has begun to catch on to us. We have heard on various and sundry occasions in the Itv1ER PRass and other leading papers of our huge territory of the great natural resources-nature's gifts--so val uable as to almost call them priceless, and yet here they are, free to all, like salvation, to be had without- money and w ithout price : Great mines, where the eager pursuer of mammon may find wea'th; great mineral springs, where the modern Ponce de Leon may realize in a measure that the old fabled fountain of eternal yonth is not altogether a iimyth; great pastures, which for fatness of cattle and sheep would put to shame even the famous blue grass region of lKcntucky; gr...

Modern Book Agent. U Brown, Jones & Robinson, three of as a good fellows as ever melted the heart of b a country trader to the merry music of iE the pliant chin, sat one evening in the G smoking compartment of a chair car on a Western Railroad. With them was a tall, thin, dyspeptic man with sandy n hair, dressed in a rustic snit of black. v Nature has endowed him with long legs a and his tailor with short pants. His t coat collar was rich enough in accumu- J lated grease to keep a soap factory going g for a month. His mouth was of brass, c and his cheek as hard as last year's ci- s der. He was a book agent. Already c had he gobbled up the drummers for a e Life of Christ and a Pocket Encyclo pedia of 215 numbeas, when suddenly a real Jesse James-like train bandit opened ! the door and stood, pistol in hand, be fore the quartette. Brown s soul sank into the heels of his boots. Beads of perspiration, big as snow balls, stood on Jones' classic brow, while his hair lifted his hat two...

lri'.s will then be fixed by the great market of London, as well as that of lotiin. This may not be pleasant to' (.olltemlplate, but we must be ready for itis juncture of affairs, for it will surely ,'ome soon; we are now importing, I be lieve. scarcely 50,000,000 pounds of clot)tlinF wool per annum. How can we Sl,cbest prepared for the new condition ,t, things? Plainly by a more thorough kng,wledge of our business. Ve must, if possible, grow our wools at a less cost. The all-imnportant point to be gained, 1+however, is the production of wool, here in Mlontana, that shall, from its superior (fu:ality and condition, take the lead in tliý' Amlerican market. Our wool is to lay worth 20(; 28 cents in Boston, while _\utralian and New Zealand wools are wtel1 fro1m 40@45 cents.

A FAMOUS GAME. Twenty Thousand Dollars and a Night-Key at Stake-The End of the Play- A Double Murder. "The river, immediately before the war," the speaker continued, "was a great gambling house. The splendid steamers plying between New Orleans and the North were loaded with men whose interest was deep in games of chance. The] planters were the most reckless gamesters. They seldom had any ready money, but would lose their live stock and niggers with equanimity. I went down on the Belle Key in 1850 from Memphis to New Orleans. At Natchez a great planter got aboard with fifty slaves. He chipped into a game with a Northern judge, a New York merchant and an army officer. The stakes mounted up to fine proportions something like $20,000 in one pot-when I saw the judge win. He held the best hands, and before we reached the Cres cent city owned forty of the planter's niggers, valued at from $1,000 to $1,500 each. "But by all odds the most interesting game I ever saw was played on the Belle L...

Some of the Manufacturing Enterprises That Can be Successfully Carried on at This Place. The falls of the Missouri, as generally 5ooken of, are a succession of falls, but there are four principal ones, known as the Black Eagle, Rainbow, Crooked and (reat falls, and they are met with in the 'rfIer named in coming down the river. The distance between the upper and lower falls is about seven miles, and in this space, following the river, there is oite grand succession of beautiful scene r'y a20(1 wonders of nature. It is gene ragnly admitted that the better view of the several falls is obtained from the south side, but to make a thorough visit the tourist ought to take in the sights front both banks. It is the intention of the proprietors of Great Falls to make this a pleasure resort and in many respects the scenery is unequaled in nature) as well as a ...

ARTESIAN WELLS. Their Success Demonstrated in Utah, Wy oming, Colorado and Idaho. Denver is much excited over its ar tesian wells, five of which are now in full operation. These Wells discharge a quantity of water, filling a three-inch pipe full in its outward flow. The wells so far sunk are only some 300 to :,00 feet in depth and are capable of raising the water far above the surface of the city. One of the best is located on Capital Hill, high enough to give a good pressure by piping to the lower part of the city. The water is said to be almost or quite chemically pure, is cool and remarkably fine. Water is struck at various depths, but the lower they go so far, the greater the flow. The stratas penetrated are of various thicknesses of clay, gravel, sand, hard pan, and water in gravel, there being several different bo(lies of water. It is believed by many that such a wa ter supply can be secured in Salt Lake City, and that it would be far preferable to the water served our citizen...
