'Te Rocky Mountain Hsbanman. R. WN. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1878. THE garden spot of the United States is the belt of country lying along the eastern base of the Rocky Mountain, from the Rio Grande to Her Majesty's dominion. Of this vast and fertile tract, reaching from north to south across the country, and embracing nearly every variety of climate to be found on the continent, that portion stretching north from the southeastern point of the Big Horn mountains is most inviting. Of this extent of country, 'that district, between the Big Horn and the Yellowstone is the most coveted, but is all embraced in the Crow reservation, and, consequently, is not open for settlement. Next to this comes the beautiful and fertile peninsula between the Yellowstone and the Missouri. This region, embracing an area of 10,000 square miles of arshle lands, 10,000 square miles of grazing lands, and half as many of mineral and timber lands, is scarcely less inviting than the Rig Horn count...

LIVE STOCK. WYE copy an article from the Courier of recent (late written by C. Edwards, wool grower of Gallatin county, in answer to ,Cbha4es Anceney's article copied by us some aweks ago. The question a- to which par rticular branch of live stock husbandry is the most profitable. is one not easy determined. We, like Mr. Edwards, are somewhat in clined to the belief that wool-growing rath er stands at the head. The figures, at a casual glance at least. would readily incline one to the conclusion; but when we sit down and carefully consider all the facts, ,weigh all the advantages and disadvantages, ,consider the risk, the relative amount of care necessary, there is not so much differ ence, after all. Sheep husbandry has not existed in our Territory on a large scale long enough to be able to make a full esti mate of the risks and losses of a decade, .while the beef industry can be figured on ,with cer:ainty; yet we have full confidence ,that the average success attained in the .wool ...

MISCELLANEOUI. BEAUTY AND STRENGTH. It is a notable truth, that the most ele gant forms are in general the strongest. The line of grace and beauty is not only cor rect as an element of art, but as a model for the architect and the engineer. The massive stone structures of the olden times, in which hugh flat stones took the place of arches, were singularly inelegant and very weak, when compared with.the light and graceful arches of modern times. And it is not only in regard to,the extensive works of the engi )neer and the architect that this principle ap plies; in the designs of the carpenter, the imechionist, the blacksmith, the tinsmith, and a host of others, it. will be found that grace fully curved; lines., confer an element of strength as well as ot-beauty,. Vibrations, when transmitted along such lines, are nev er suddenly checked, and the material is never exposed.to those sudden strains which always occur wherever right angles and square jointsare found.

The Rocky Lountain THibadnlman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1878. WIVY learn. fronm.the Bozeman papers that a project is on toot looking to the organiza- 1 tion of a Fair Association at that place. This is a very important move, and if prop- : erly carried out will be of incalculable bene tit to Gallatin valley, and to all of Eastern Montana. We know of no better means o that can be employed to encourage the im- I portation of fine stock and induce the care tul study and employment of the most im proved modes of tilling the soil-than associ ations of this character. The experience of the old settled States has demonstrated this. An agricultural fair cannot fail,to become the means of doing good, and the better it is managed the greater and more lastingwill be the benefits resulting therefrom.

LIVE STOCK. THE wool-growers of Montana have two harvests in the year; that of clipping the fleece and attending the lambs. Of these cares attention to the lambs is most impor tant. In their success with the lambs de pends the success of the business, and if it is carelessly managed, the increase of the dock must be small and the profits light. T'en clays ago the hills and plains were cov ered with snow, thePun hid by clouds, and the chilly weather indicated a severe time .for this work; but at this writing the day is clear and sunny, and a continuance of the same two weeks longer will be the .means of saving many thousand dollars to the wealth of our country. The favorable '..weather makes the work easier, but does not relieve the flock men of their duty to the sheep. Not only do the lambs need care and attention, but the health of the ewes should be looked after. The folding pen should be kept clean and they should not be too closely crowded into it. The best lesson, ;however. is ...

MTE TERRITORY. Frank Taylor and Tom Connor returned dester;ay from a two dllys' visit to the Bo e~steza district, from which good news con iitlne to come. While at Vestel they inspect etl the Penobscot, and took ocular measure nente of the mine. Men have again been tut to wvorl in the shaft, which is now dlown 64 feet. The ore body remains essen tially unchanged ; the rich vein along the hanigin,,l wall preserves its dimensions, and ti4e smaliller Veins, carrying the samen high grad(l rock, continues down with the llain Ioly of ore. The arastra is grinding away on the ainle's ordinary product, the $1,000 str;atas yielding another supply, kept, as heretofore, sparate and distinct for another special run hereafter. It is estimated that present developments show not less than a quarter of a million dollars of ore in sight. ,Survey for a tramway connecting the mine with the selected mill site was in progress yesterday.

IISCELLANEOUS. HOW TO LAY SHINGLE.8 Not one half the persons who lay shingles when making a roof on a building have any correct ideas in regard to making a roof that will be aosolutely raintight during a driving storm of rain. We have frequently seen men shingling, who, when they would meet with a worthless shingle, say once in laying two or three courses, would leave this poor one among the good ones saying: " It is only one poor shingle, one shingle cannot make a poor roof."' But one poor shingle will make a leaky. one. If tisrt rate shingles are used and one poor one is work ed in among every 100, that roof might as well have been without any shingles. It any poor shingles.are to )be used, let them be laid togther near the upper part of the roof. The best ofsshingles will not make a tiglht roof:if snot properly laid, while the,. same. shingles would make an excellent,. roofif laid as shingles should be. ---------·ot- * THE hotter the glue the better it wiilP keep the two parts gl...

The Rocky Mointain Hs an1iian. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 9, 1878. GOLD quartz mining offers the best open ing for men of moderate means of any branch of mniling to be found in our Terri tory. Gold-bearing leads checker our hills in every direction, and may be possessed for the bare trouble of cl:aiming, provided the work of development is to be begun within! a reasonable length of time. Many of these leads are well defined, and claimants may commence taking out paying ores from the beginning, and the process of reduction is so siml)le that it will require but a small sum to put a mine upon a paying basis. Water powers are numerous and usually conveni ent, and it requires but a few mpnths' labor and a few hundred dollars to rig up a small mill, or an arastra may be built at even less expense. Gold quartz occupied considerable attention in an early day, and a large amount of mon cy was squandered by inexperienced miners erecting machinery, prospecting leads, etc. But wage...

LIVE STOCK. Ix face of the fact that our Live Stock Department has, since the day of our first Assue, occupied a prominent position and en gaged a large share of our labor, and that ,every line published therein has been for the purpose of inducing our farmers to a.dopt the best and most .improved breeds of stock, :Charles Anceny, in a recent article on the subject of a bull law, insinuates that our chief reason for opposing is because we are in favor "of raising cattle upon ~the Texas and Mexican principle." Now, the principle advantage that Mauttana offers to the stock-grower, is that our herds flourish and multiply upon our range without the ,,egre of tbhe husbandman. Were it other yvise, were our people compelled to labor ,one half the year to produce feed :to keep ,our live ~tock through the other half, then ,certainly our country would offer but poor inducements to the beef-grower, ,and some section sore convenient to the .great mar .kets would be chosen. We favor the grow ing...
