T1Er COTTAGE DOOR. tweet the re t at labor yields The humlo ar d the poor, Wher sits the patriarch of the fields UfoIre his cottagt door. The lark is singing in the sky, The swalloWS on the eawes, And love is beaming in each eye, Beneath the summer leaves. The air amid his fragrant bowers Sullplie unlrchased health, And heurts are bounding 'mid the flowers, ,Iore dear to him than wealth. peace, like the blessed sunlight, plays Around..d.i humble cot, And hapPY nights and cheerful days Divide his lowly lot. And when the village Sabbath bell tings out upon the gale, The father bows his head to tell" The music of its tale A fresher verdure seems to fill The fair and dewy sod, And every infait tongue is still To hedr the word of God. 0, happY hearts! to Him who stills The ravens when they cry, And maket.rhe lily, 'neath the ills, So.glorious to the eye Tile trusting patriarch prays to bless his labors with increase; Such ways are "ways of pleasantness."

ONE OF THE HIOHEST MOUNTAINS. According to recent geographical surveys it seems that the Aconcagua Peak is the lpftiest of the Andes range, and the highest in America. It is 100 miles east of Valpara I0o, and nearly in latitude 32 deg. 30 rmin. south. Its actual height is not accurately known, but the measurements made by M. Lissis and other noted scientists make it reasonably certain that the elevation is be tween 22,400 and 23,900 feet above the level cf the sea. The French explorer made it 22,422, or four miles and 1,302 feet over, which would be 998 feet higher than the snowy summit of Chimborazo as Humb9ldt measured the latter, when in 1802 the great German made his famous ascent of that mountain with Bonpland to a height of 19, 286 teet. Aconcagua, seen from the Chilian seaport of Valparaiso, is shown only as a peak, towering above the other heights of the Andes at a distance of 100 miles or more inland, toward the sunrise. Aconcagua has beeri called an extinct volcano, but th...

WHI~S we commenced the publication of I this paper it was not our intention to canvas I the Territory in its interests any further I than to introduce it generally into the sev- i cral valleys, since the low price at which it I is furnished will not justify the ou0tlay,.; and we were wholly opposed to the agency sys- 1 tem and believed it to be an unnecessary A tax upon the people.

The vast amount of in frimation that he is enabled to gather and disseminate by his correspondence .through- 1 out the land, respectint; the facilities and progress of different sections constitutes a very interesting feature, and amply repays1 the extra service; besides, the system has been so long practiced by our old establish ed journals that subscribers wait to be called on before paying their subscriptions., which readers it almost inevitabl...

SLIVE STOCK. ONE of the greatest difficulties that sheep .raisers in Montana have to contend with, is scab. It is the effect of an itch insect which it is necessary to destroy before ,the sheep ean become sound and profitable. In our dry climate it seems more troublesome to get rid of than probably any other. The want of information and the proper care and treatment has causedsopie dissatisfac tion and in a few instances with new begin -ners the loss of a third of the wool clip. Our wool-growers are all in the habit of dipping once or twice during the season, but in many cases it has been work thrown away. Simply dipping does not appear to be sufficient. A thorough dipping will de stroy the insect reached, but will not kill the eggs deposited under the skin. It has been ascertained that the eggs hatch in from nine to ten days. It is therefore nec essary that a second dipping be given in ten days after the first. But few cases of permanent cure to an entire flock have been effected w...

MISCELLANEOUS. GOLDSMITH'S DESERTED VILLAGE. About a mile north of Glasson, Ireland, the prospect is closed by the woods of Au burn house, the residence of a Mr. Adam son. It is agreeably situated oni a shelter ed slope, but it has an air of certainly not very graceful neglect about it which, though promising the diversity of a fine group of ruins here in a few years, is sadly ominous, as indicating that " southward the course of canker takes it away." And now at last we are on the Pisgah, whence we first obtain a view of that sacred region the song of whose decay has floated all.over the globe, and is breathed by thousands who have never set foot upon her shores. The road Jeads still north. To the east, st;retch ing parallel to it, is the '" neighboring Jhill," near the summit of which, conspicelious in the distance is the "decent church," known as the rectory of Kilkenny West. A: decent chapel of more modern date tops another uiighboring hill in the parish of Ilynowen, perhaps the...

TIS 1Roky olitai llsbaiiinan. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 23, 1878. THE bill for an appropriation of $150,000 for building a new military Post in North Eastern Montana, after being reduced to $100,000, has passed from the Senate Com mittee with its reoommendation.. It is yet uncertain whether or Ihot it will become a law, since Congress has the retrenchment fever strong-generally beginning at the wrong end.--and is the therefore most liable to comnmence in the Territories, where it it will be felt most and works the greatest hardship upon the people. Should wisdom govern its councils in this case, and the bill pass, the question of the location of the new post will become one of great importance. 'TLere is a vast extent of country between Fort Keogh, on the Yellowstone, and the northern boundary, which this post is re qwtired to protect, and as it is impossible, under the present state of rigid reform,which pervades our Nation!M Legislature, to get an appropriation.. for ...

LIVE STOCK. A CORRESPONDENT of the National Live &ock Journal from Wyoming, writes some very important facts to that paper. The experience of the sheep-growers of Monta na has proved much the same as those of Wyoming, with reference to the lambs, ex cept that our sheep, men save 100 per cent. of Merinos, and often from 10 to 20 per cent. more when breeding long-wooled sheep. The care of the Merino for the first few days atter birth is much greater than than that of the coarse wool breeds ; but even though this is the case, the average re sults show that the former are well adapted to our country. As to the wgight of the fleece our wool-growers all pretty well agree that flocks bred to Merinos share the heaviest. The weights mentioned ,,by the correspondent are not extra for Montana, as our ordinary flocks.generally reach, these figures. As to the price per pound thus far we are unable to say, as,Montana wool has never been graded, but has been sold in bulk, all realizing about t...

II CELLANEOUS. HEAT IN GRINDING. The heating of the flour by the two rapid revolutions of the millstones, is one cause of poeor flour. Many of the organic compounds of the wheat, and those mo-t eFsential to the vital functions, are very delicate and easily injured, and by this heating disorganized, and their food properties wholly changed. Nature is thus robbed of one of its most beneficent provisio11:, and mankind suffers from the cheat. To understand how a large part of the p)hosphate: and nitrates are lost in grinding and boiling superfine or white flour, it should be known that gluten, which is the principal nitrogenous element of wheat, is tenacious or adhesive, while the starch. or carbonl.ecOa5 eloment, is softer and crumbly, and the consequence is that in grinding, the glutinous crust is separated in flakes, and is ,ifted or bolted out, leaving the flour composed too much of starch, which contains no food for brain and mus cle.-American Miller.
