In Its earlier singes the club had been

the more they felt for Langdon. 11 ut
the antl-Laugdonltea, If out actually In

feeling for Larrgdou and against them,
they were seeking every opportunity to

They turned up duy after day with
some new story at hla expense for the
truth of which they declared some reli
able person was ready to vouch, and as
their hearers bad no Information on

to look Incredulous. It was one even

and most of the cavalry crowd had
slipped awojr to the card or billiard

. "Melville's too soft hearted to refuse

"They're not," said the trooper,

Nathan hastily.

A railroad, the Oregon Pacific, 1
to be built from Waldo, a rich min
ing town in Josephine county, (hi
stuto, to Crescent City, California.
The Grants Pas people want the
road extended to a Jutielion with the
S. P. Co. at their town. Crescent
City is an ocean port, though the
hartsir is not a good one, and there
are times wlr'ii ships have to stand

those of Montana.
