"You are sad a d dejected, my treasure, Your fa.e ' ears a look of drear pain; Whnt is It that hinde rs your pleasure ? What dcth your enjoyments enchain ? Have thy: words I have spoken offended ?

( EUR D'ALENE.. It is Said to be a Job of the Northern Pa cific. The Coeur d'Aleiie gold excitement does not seem to inspire quite as much confidence near home as it does abroad. Frank McCarthy, an old time mountain eer from Missoula, being interviewed by the Salt Lake Tribune said : "I think the Northern Pacific railroad company are largely interested in get ting up a stampede to the Coeur d'Alene. It is the policy of that company, and from their standpoint probably justifia ble, to fill up the great northwest rapid ly with a population, and probably they know as well as anybody also how to do it." "Have you ever been in that coun try'?" "I first went there in 1865, although as early as 1863 there had been an ex citement raised concerning that country, and many a poor fellow from Oregon and California on that occasion was picked up by the Indians. When I went there it was on a night stamnede, which was a common thing in the early Montana towns. I was accompanied by eight or ten oth...

LATEST TELERARMS. The Proteus Court of: Inquiry. WASHINGTON, November 22.-Secre tary Chandler was notified to appear be fore the Proteus court of investigation to-day. He said that the acting chief signal officer informed him that it was not necessary that the Yantic should carry any supplies for the Greely and Garlington parties, but notwithstanding he directed that the Vessel's guns be taken out and she filled with provisions. On the Yantic's return to St. John's she had three months' supplies for 129 men. Gen. Hazen was recalled and read a letter in response to inquiries of what he intended to prove by the witnesses he desired to summon.

FORT ASSINA]BOINE. [C'ontinued from last week.] E-:verything at Assinaboine is built of ,ric'k except the guard house, and that is of stone, so the pla;ce has a very sub ,utantial look. Lieut. Campbell, the post qIuartermiaster and commissary, showed ui through the two long root houses, which were filled to the top with 4,580 blushels of potatoes and 20,000 heads of catbbage. These vegetables were all raised on the post and various company gardens, mostly without any irrigation, and are a fair sample of Montana's agri cultural capabilities. The water works are in good shape, so there is not much danger from a drouth or fire. A Blake steam pump lifts the water out of Beaver creek into an ele vated reservoir, having a capacity of .51,800 gallons. An oil stove under the water pipe which fills this reservoir heats the pipe and the water, so that it has never frozen up, even with the severe Montana winters. Nearly a mile of six-i('ch iron pipe, laid eight feet (ldeep so as to be beyond t...
