This year will be the last leap year in eight years. The year 1900 will not be a leap year. Every year is a leap year that is divisible by four except those ending in two ciphers which must be divisible by 400. Whatever advantage you expect from leap year girls must Cometo you this year or you must be kept in the Shade for a Long time. Let a change come quickly. The time table for the Blackfoot and Challis stage company is most miserable. It accommodates nobody it disco modes everybody interested. As now provided the stage often leaves before the trains arrive with the Eastern and Western mails and returning arrive six to ten hours after the trains have passed. In this Way mails for Custer county Are delayed from 12 to 24 hours. A change to the old time of running will overcome All delays and inconveniences and we believe the postal authorities will so order it As soon As the facts Are presented to them. Railway construction in 1895. The railway age says a railway building in the United states reached this year a lower Point than in any of the last Twenty years indeed in Only two years since 1865, thirty years ago has so Small a mileage been built. Our records for 1895 now show Only 1,782 Miles of track Laid a tremendous decline from the great year of 1887, when almost 13,000 Miles were put Down. In the eight years since that time the decrease in construction has been great and continuous and this year the total built was Only about 100 Miles More than in the year 1855�?forty years ago. In Idaho Oregon and Utah not a single mile of new track was Laid. Cleaned out the stovepipe. There is probably no Man in Idaho More familiar with powder of All kinds than Phil Mcguire yet on tuesday last he swelled a powder charge beyond the limit and blew the Coltman lumber office into Smithereens. Phil had been informed that a stovepipe could be cleaned out by exploding a Small Quantity of powder in the stove and tried it. It worked most effectively not Only Clen nug out the pipe Chimney and stove but cleaned out the office spread the stove around on the floor and deposited Phil in the Back Falls Register. The reservation canal. Secretary Hoke Smith has awarded the contract for constructing the reservation canal to the Idaho canal company. The work is to be completed by june 1st. The contract Price is $90,000, and an annual maintenance at $15 per cubic foot. This will be Gratifying news to All Bingham county. Supplying water is the first step towards reclaiming the lands on the reservation and reclaiming the lands Means opening the reservation. The company has a limited time to do its work but it will be equal to the emergency unless Winter weather should close in and shut off work altogether. On with the work. Scrapers and plows to the front and idlers to the scrapers and plows. Montana cattle Trade. Helena mont., january year 1895 was the greatest cattle year Montana has had so far As total receipts from sales Are concerned. Revised figures of the business done during the year prepared in the office of the Montana Board of Stock commissioners give the total receipts at $11,000,000. The Secretary of the Board has handled during the year on account of strays $179,721. The shipments of cattle during the year 1895 aggregated 246,460 head the Slaughter for Home consumption being 60,000 head making the total output 306,460 head average Price for the year was a trifle Over $36 per head. Thus it will be seen that the cattle Industry brought More than $11,000,000 into Montana during 1895. The report of the state vegetarian shows there were brought into Montana in 1895 70,000 head of cattle. Delinquent taxes. Taxes became delinquent last monday but will not be advertised for Sale until May next. In co Quence of the decrease of penalty and length of time before Sale a great Many will allow their taxes to become delinquent. From the first to the fourth monday in january the assessor cannot receive taxes and property on which the taxes have not been paid will be advertised for Sale on or before the fourth monday in May and be sold on the first monday in july three per cent penalty is added As soon As the taxes become delinquent and an additional 3 per cent making 6 per cent and 12 per cent per annul if not paid prior to Date of Sale besides 25 cents on each tract of land separately assessed. The owner has two years which to redeem the land so sold. In other words if a taxpayers taxes amount to $100 and he pays them before the first monday in March the whole amount will be $103, and if not paid until Date of Sale he will have to pay 6 per cent., which for six months would be $6, and with the 3 per cent would make a total of $115, or 1j per cent for six record stray notice.
