MOlI)EL.N N 9VELS. Considered by One of the Writers There of-What are Bad Books. [Mrs. Mulcck-Craik.l I believe a thoroughly "bad" book, as we of the last generation used to style such and either for coarseness of style as '"Tris tam Shandy," or for laxity of morals, like "Don Juan"-does infinitely less harm than many modern novels which we lay on our drawing-room tables, and let our young daughters read ad infinitum or ad nauseam ; novels chiefly, I grieve to say, written by women, who, either out of pure ignorance, or a boastful, morbid pleasure in meduling with forbidden topics, often write things that men would be ashamed to write. Absolute wickedness, crime, represented us crime, and licentiousness, is far less dangerous to the young and naturally pure mind than that charming sentimental dallying with sin mak ing it appear so piteous, so interesting, so beautiful. Nay, without even entering up on the favorite modern style of fiction-in which we love to be attractive must neces ...

FLOATING FANOIES. The world is apt to coo in your ear like a dove when you are rich, but if you happen to be poor it kicks lite a mule. "Eat onions, sis," is the Boston Pest's ad vice to a maiden who wants to know how to avoid having a mustache on her upper lip. Candid! He-"Why should I fear to sip the sweets from each red lip?" She-"No necessity for alarm at all. I use a vegetable color, which is not poisonous." Jones says that the clouds of his early childho:od were no bigger than a woman's hand, but a squall always followed them. One way to make money is to take a half pound trout, fill it up with shot, and then go and bet it weighs a pound and a half. A gentleman down East, seeing his pretty maid with his wife's bonnet on, kissed her, supposing her to be the real owner. He soon discovered his error through.,the assistance of his wife.

THE RIVER PRESS Wednesday, August 17. 1881. JERRY COLLS, - ------------------ EDITO THE INDIAN QUESTION. It is not intended in this article to discuss the Indian question in general. It has already been amply considered by able writers who know the Indian through "Hiawatha" and Cooper's novels. It would seem to be need less to add more to the literature about Lo, especially as a sage writer and statesman of the East has settled the whole question. "Keep whisky and fire-arms out of the la dians hands," says the Sage, "and the In dian problem is solved." The theory is doubtless correct, but just how to accomplish that result is what would get a Western man. If all the whisky and fire-arms in the world were sunk to the bottom of the sea a big per cent. of the general mischief would cease. But this is not the phase of the Ind:an ques tion that commands attention from the peo pie of Northern Montana. How to keep ti~ redskins from slaughtering and stealing the stock of our ranchmen is the...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, August 31. 1881. JERRI.Y COLLIXLS. - - - - - - - EDITOR THE BARKER MINES. There is every reason to believe that the Barker mining district in the near future will l;ecolme a great mineral producing rý gion, p1rhaps3 second to none in Montana or in the West. The indications clearly point that way. The precious metals are there in fa bulous quantities waiting for that touchstone most needed to turn quartz into bullion, cap i:.al. Two years ago when the district was discovered it was believed there were "mil lions in it" and the meager developments uince made g) to confirm this opinion. There is now but one mine in the ca'np de veloped to any considarable extent, the Wright & Edw~ards, and that, becuase of the work done on it, shows up better th:in the - others. In the estimnstion of gentlemen who have had large experience in quartz mining this lead is held to be one of the richest in the Territory, a veritable t)onanz t. Any doubts on this score that ma...
