An Old Time Reminiscence. The early days of Fort Benton are re plete with interesting reminiscences. A volume might be written in which every chapter would abound in thrilling scenes and incidents. Going back to the days of the American fur company up to 1877-8, enough wild, and net infrequent ly tragic adventures could be given to satisfy the most morbid curiosity of lov ers of Indian literature. The following event will serve to show somewhat the trials and tribulations of the old-timers: In those days human life was held very cheap, and it was dangerous to go out on the prairie even on legitimate business, and a man, no matter how well armed, was never secure against the deviltry of some lurking foe, for In diois of whatever tribe were the natural Qneimits of the paleface. Many a ted iman has paid the penalty of his crimes without the aid of judgc or jury, but it iuclh cases, however, the Indian was usually reported lost, as indeed he was.
