'Twas bigger to see, as he fell where he rose, How he wiped up the ground with h'u4 new Sunday clothes. "Yes, sir," said Mr. Gallagher, "it was funny enough to make a donkey laugh. I laughed till I cried." ; The latest stockings we read. of are of three or four colors. This ougbt to make a muddy pavement glisten like a rainbow.

The next conference:of the M. E. Church, South, will be held at Butte. There are. fourteen working lodges of Good Templars in the Territory. Five prisoners from Miles City were booked at the Deer Lodge prison last week. It will require another week of court at White Sulphur Springs to clear up the docket. Wheat sells for $2.00 and $2.50 in the Sielena market. The extra grade, suitable for making a choice article of flour, is rather. scarce. The Garfield Mining and Milling Company has been organized on a new basis : You may change it and name it whatever you will, But the scent of the fraud will hang around still. 8 Engineer Chenowith, of the Northern Pa cific party, has gone to Washington City to look up hischances of being appointed Sur veyor General of Montana.

LOST KISS. I put by the hasf written poem, i:" While the pen idly .txailed in my.iand, Writes on-"Had I words to c~mple-te it, Who'd rad i~t. or who'd understand?' But the little bare feet on the Estirway, And the faint, smothered laugh in the hall, And the eerie-low lisp on the silence, Cry up to me over it all. So I gather it up-where was broken The tear-faded thread of Iny4heme, Telling how, as one night I sat writing, A fairy broke in on my diteam A little inquisitive fairy My own little girl, with the gold Of the sun in her hair.. and the dewy Blue eyes of the fairies of old. 'Twas the dear little girl that I scolded "For was it moment like,t.his," I said--"when she knew I was busy, To come romping in for a kiss? Come rowdying up from her mother, - And clamoring there at my knee ]For;'One 'ittle kiss for my dolly, And one 'ittle uzzer for me !'"

Along their lines mIany industries will be developed and popu iation flow. There is a bit of romance at tsched to this system which is worthy of re call. When Hon. John Slidell, of L6uisiana ,as appointed, along with Hon. James M. Mason, a Commissioner for the Confederate States in Europe, he embarked with his fam ily on the British steamer Trent. As is well known, the Trent was captured on the high seas by a United States cruiser, commanded by Captain Wilkes, and the Southern envoys compelled to return to this country as prison ers of war. How near this incident came to involving the General Government in war with Great Britain is now a matter of history. it is also a truth of history that a daughter of John Slidell resented an impertinence trom one of Wilke's'officers by a rousing slap ...
