FLOATING FANCIES. A county editor being asked, "Do hogs pay?" says a great many do not. They take the paper several years, and then have the postmaster send it back "Re fused." The economical editor informs his con tributors that they must write "only on one side of the sheet." By this means he acqulires an unfailing supply of copy paper for his own use. A'n attorney, on being called to ac count for having acted unprofessionally in taking less than the usual fees from his client, pleaded that he had taken all the man had. He was thereupon hon orably acquitted. "Why didn't you deliver that mes sage as I gave it to you?" asked a gentleman of his stupid servant. "I did the best I could, boss." "You did the best you could, didn't you?" imitating his voice and look. "You did the best you could. If I had known that I was sending a donkey, [ would have gone myself.". A good story is told of Ben Butler's sarcastic retort upon a Massachusetts judge, whom he was teasing for a ruting favorable...

HERMANN THE MAGICIAN. His Tricks Among the Hucksters of St. Louis. Hermann looks a good deal like an idealized and humanized Satan.

Eldridge who has been stopping at the Grand Union the past few days, has just completed a map of the greatest importance to Benton, as upon his report will depend in a large measure not only whether we are soon to have a branch of the Northern Pacific railroad, but the course it will follow fromt the Judith Basin to this place.

STHE RIVERPRE. Vol. III. Benton, Montana, Wednesday, November 29, 1882. No, 6. SUN RIVER SIFTINGS. Something About the Pleasantest and Wealthiest Valley Tributary to Benton. There are a good many "garden spots" in Montana, but the chief of them, we think, is the Sun river valley. In ex tent, fertility of soil, improvements; the wealth, intelligence and culture of its people-and all that go to make up a thrifty, prosperous, progressive settle ment, we question if there is any in the territory that equals it. Of course, all the desirable land has been taken, long since, and from one end of the valley to the other and along the south fork are valuable ranches, well watered, and having in almost every in stance improvements of the value of thousands of dollars. No better crops ,,re produced anywhere, and as most of the farmers are prepared for irrigating, such a thing as a crop failure is quite un known. But in addition to farming, most of the residents of the valley are interested in c...
