GOOD-BYE, SWEETHLEART. Good-bye, sweetheart! we seem to part, Yet still within my inmost heart Thou goest with me. Still my place I hold in thine by love's dear grace; Yet all my 1 fe seemed going out As slow I turned my face about To go alone another way, To be alone till life's last day, Unless thy smile shall light my way, Unless I hear the welcome "Come," Which only can dispel the gloom. That seems to o'er my pathway lie As low I sigh, sweetheart, good-bye! Good-bye, sweetheart! And yet not so. Thou'lt be with me where'er I go, And strengthen me. Tho' sorely tried, Thy spirit will with me abide, So that when sin my heart would lure, For thy dear sake I'll keep it pure. With touches lighter than the air I kiss thy forehead, pure and fair, And say to God this last deep prayer: 0, guard her always, night and day, So from thy peace she shall not stray; Her every act, Oh, Father, bless, And fill her life with happiness. And so-good-bye, sweetheart! THE LARGEST FARMI IN TH'E WW9~RLD. ...

PERSONAL AND GENERAL. Lawrence Barrett says the English people fairly worship Irving. A grape-vine near San Diego, Cal., is said to bear five tons of fruit in one year. Why is the North pole like an illicit whis ky manafactory ? Because its a secret still. There is not much danger when it rains "cats and dogs", tut when it Spitz dogs look out. A baby weighing thirty-two pounds was born at Washington. Its father is an under taker. There is a limit-First young lady : "I could sit here forever." Second ditto : And I till lunch time." "I wish I was a pudding, mamma." "Why ?" "Cause I should have a lot of sugar put into me." The Philadelphia Herald. Chronicle re marks that divorce is the signal for a cessa tion of hostilities. Christine Nilsson is a good conversational ist, but is one of those stately, formal wo men who have to be drawn out to become liked.

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, September 28, 1881. JERRY COLLLVS.-- - - -- - . - EDITOR THE most surprising thing of all is tha Guiteau still lives. Now the country is in danger. An extra session of Congress has been called. EIGHTY thousand people viewed the re mains of the President in the rotunda of the capital on Thursday. PRESIDENT ARTHUR has issued a proclama tion convening the Senate in extraordinary session on the 10th inst. GARFIELD funds of every conceivable kind have been started. The monument fund is already under good headway. THREE masked men boarded a train on the Iron Mountain Railroad, on the 23d, and robbed the passengers of $30,000. WE admire the conduct of President Arthur for the past three months and only wish that his future actions will be as worthy of praise. T. P.

MOTHER'S BOYS. Yes, I knew there are stains on my carpet, The traces of small muddy boots; And I see your fair tapestry glowing All spotless with blossoms and fruits. And I know that my walls are disfigured With prints of small fingers and hands; And that your own household most truly In immaculate purity stands. And I know that my parlor is littered With many old treasures and toys; While your own is in daintiest order, Unharmed by the presence of boys. And I know that my room is invaded Qutte boldly all hours of the day; While you sit in your's unmolested And dream the soft quiet away. Yes, I know there are four little bedsides Where I must stand watchful each night: While you go out in your carriage, And flash in your dresses so bright. Now, I think I'm a neat little woman; I like my house orderly too; And I'm found of all dainty belongings; Yet would not change places with you. No! keep your fair home with its order, Its freedom from bother and noise; And keep your own fanciful ...

TR.AV E4ING BRIDES AND G1IOOtIS. Stngs by Which the Hotel Clerk Knows Them and WVhich Have to be Paid For. [Now York Sun.] To watch the newly-married couples who travel is one of the compensltions of our ar duous life," said an old hotel clerk the other day. "How can you tell whether they are newly married or not ?" inquired the Sun reporter, to whom the remark was addressed. "Tell them!" ejaculated the clerk : "I can pick them out as easily as if they car ried signs, 'We are just married.'"' "Yes ; but how ?" "Well, in the first place, they are always more abundant in the fall and winter. I don't know why it is, but such is the fact. One of the signs of a newly married couple is their spick and span new clothes. Some how, when people get married they general ly get as many new clothes as possible. The bride and groom have new hats and new trunks and new dusters. Then, again, they spend money more freelyv When a man is in his honeymoon he generally feels as if he o:ight to be genero...

THE RIVER PRESS. Wednesday, September 28, 1881. INDIAN DEPREDATIONS. What Secretary Kirkwood has to Say on the Subject. The following from Secretary Kirkwood is in response to a letter addressed to him by Delegate Maginnis. It will be seen that the Becretary falls back on an old treaty, ratified in 1855, and long since a dead letter, to show that the Indians have as much right on the stock ranges as the white men. The set tlement of the country as well as subsequent treaties and laws has rendered that absolete and the honorable Secretary has only made himself ridiculous by referring to it. If Sthe Indian has a right to occupy these lands referred to he certainly has not the right to wantonly kill the stock of the citizens of Montana. It will be gratifying to know that the Secretary has called the attention of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to this mat ter (including the treaty of '55) but very lit tle good will come of it. There is too much "red tape" in the premises and the dep...

ON HORSEBACK. The Fertile Missouri Valley--Fine Farms and Comfortable Homes. Deep Creek and Poverty Plat--Reminiscen ces, Pleasant and Mortifying. Leaving Diamond, we took the road down the gulch. The road leads down through canyons with steep, bare rocks on either side, which gradually give place to high, sloping hills, crosses bridges over flumes, and finally debouches on to the Missouri valley, one of the most fertile and flourishing sections of our Territory. At the mouth of the gulch three roads run ofi, one the stage road to Canyon Ferry and Helena; another five miles to Edmonson's Ferry, up and across Beaver creek, and striking the Helena and Bozeman road a little this side of the Spokane House; the third, three quarters of a mile to Johnson creek, when it in turn forks, form ing the upper and lower roads up the valley. At the mouth of Confederate lives Chas Barker, formerly an old-time miner of White's Gulch, but now a "noble farmer' (for particulars see the Ilusbandman) who...

FLOATING FANCIES. He rested his hot brow upon his hand and laughed : "Three months ago she vowed she would never, never marry me, and now she is sucing me for breach of promise. There is nothing that strengthens a man's honesty as much as to trust him; suspect him, and you weaken his faith in him'elf and everybody else. We have seen ladies who were insuffera bly shocked at the sight of a man in his shirt-sleeves when their own arms were bare almost to the shoulder ! Woman are strange creatures. There was a young maiden, name Rhoda, Just crazy for ice cream and shoda; Once when slaking her thirst, She fell down, and birst! (Not even her folks would have knhoda.) "Parting in such sweet sorrow," remarked a tlld old bachelor as he told her go- d night. "I should smile," she remarked, glancing upon his hairlessness and wonidering how he ever did it. When Methusaleh wus only 500 years old his father told him that if didn't stop smok ing vile cigarettes he would die in early man hood. He d...

POPs puts the whole Indian question in a nut shell in his saying that "the hand that feeds them (the Indians) if iron-clad, can control them." A MEMORIAL window of rich stained glass is to be placed in St. John's Episcopal Church, Long Island, opposite the seat oc cupied by President Garfield the Sunday be fore he was shot. IT is pretty well established that Sergeant Mason's mind was temporarily unsettled from malarial fever and excitement over the events of the last three months, and that he will no doubt be punished only by a dis charge from the army.

SIMPLE FAITH. If one could hear his mother's voice again, And stand beside his mother's knee again, And be again a child, Simple and mild, Absorbing faith as earth receives the rain; Thus only could he shake the feeling oft That he has learned too mach or not enough. Cold is the air of reason, though serene, Chill and unsatisfying, though serene. Better for lito and death Were simple faith, That ample evidence of things unseen; But we have eaten the forbidden truit. Nor knew the tree was rotten at the root. ---------- N` + 00 pb --- Remarkable Surgery.

CUPID'S FIRST DIP. Cupid one day amid the wild flowers playing Wild flowers-the fittest for him In the bright stream, by whose bank he was straying Longing to bathe-but the boy could not swim. He ventured his foot in a shallow hard by, When the nymph of the stream, with sharp, mocking cry, Said, "Cupid, don't dabble-be cautious or bold, Jump in or keep out, If you dabble no doubt You'll go home with a cough, And the ladies will scoff For the very worst thing is for Love to take cold." Cupid, thus taunted, jump'd in, nothing daunted, "Well done," said the nymph to the boy; "'Once o'er head and ears, bay, away with your fears The wilder the plunge, oh, the brighter the joy! To give you this lesson, sweet Cupid, is luck, With your dear little wings--i'm sure you are a duck But wild duck don't dabble," The nymph said to him, "Once o'er head and ears, Away with your fears, For Love never sinks, when determined to swim !" The New Bathing Dress. Once on a time ladies who went to the sea sh...
