fidME CIRCLE. A LITTLE WORD. It'd bat a word, a small one, It,, when it should have been "no''- But it ,ped the gate To an evil fate Which swept me down in its flow. Wo short a word to have blasted The sun of a beautitful day, And have driven umy feet From the meadows sweet Toa swild and turbulent way! Sthe word was a breath, afeather, But It marshalled a terrible host, And followed each sin, As it entered in, Lkle a sa4, reproaehtul ghost. Oh pitiful words of weakness, O a.e strong enough to kill, Or to hide the goal Of a secret soul Till it losey faith and will. No word too short for Life's blessing, Neo Word too short for its bane. Aqd,through "yea" or 'no' Our weal or woe Will bring up joy or pain. Small drops swell into a torrent That hurries us down the mait, And through storm and stress In our sore distress We may cry ".God help I " in vain. Then wait thou not for such hour, But cry "'Gqodhelp"-to choose Eack.word and deed, That in sorest need The soul nq hope may lose. And t...

MORE INDIAN DEPREDATIONS. From the Missoulli-n Extras. CORVALLIS, July 18. The Indians came down on Sleeping e Child creek, twelve miles above here, on a Wednesday mnorning. Jerry Fahey camp- b ed there the night before with his train on the waY to Gibbouville. HIe slept in the c corral with another titan and left the cargo in Jo Blodlgett's house. The Indians visit ed the premises about daylight, anid helped I themselves to what they wanted. Jerry woke up anrd saw six Indians as they were disappearing over the hills.

IISCELLANEOUS, INfLAXXAJLE DBESS 000DS. Steam-Boiler Inspector Siebdrath, of Dresden, we learn from the Polytechnic Re iieto, was lead by several distressing acci dents that happened to female operatives in factories, from the catching fire of their dresses, to experiment to find a simple plan of rendering such dress goods uninflamma bl.' He tried alum, but with little satisfac tion, as the goods so treated burned after ward with more or less readiness. They were likewise in,uredin appearance. A 5 per cent. of phosphate of ammonia, howev er, gave very satisfactory results; the goods (linene and cotton) after treatment refusing to inflame-simply charring when brought in contact with flame. Treatment with a mixe.d solution of 5 per cent. alwt a and 5 per cent, phosphate of ammonia, gave~qual ly satisfactory. results.

SRocky ou101111tain Husbandman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TIiUItSDAY, AUGUST 1, 1878. OUR assertion last week that the military of Montana were brave men and well offi cered has been. verified since by the action of the gallant Wallace and his little squad of thirteen soldiers and..two citizens, who, as will be seen from,,the report published elsewhere, so bravely attacked and badly punished a larger party of Nez Perces who have been, committing murders and depre dations .wbila traveling back through the Territory. from the camp of Sitting Bul.t' Those aretlie kind of men who are wanted to fight Indians. NEVECR before has the outlook for a solid apd permanent prosperity in Montana been better than it is at the present time, and no country offers better inducements to izlmi grants. From all quarters and every sece tion of the Territory come cheering reports ot activity in all branches of industry, and there is a great demand for working men ill over the country, with two notable excep...

LIVE STOCK. BREEDING TG IMPROVE STOCK. We have little patience with that class of theorists who, in the improvement of stock, advise breeding to grades. If a thing is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well. Take two bulls, for instance, one purely bred, the other a half-blood, a grade. The immediate produce of the first, or pure bull, upon native cows, would be half-bloods. The produce of the half-blood bull on the same cows would be one-quarter blood. As we follow this up, the produce from generation to generation is only half as good as the better bred, theoretically; real ly they are far less, since the tendency in the case of the low grades is constantly to throw back to the original stock. For in stance, allowing that the tendency in the half-breeds would be"equal to throw back on the cold-blooded ancestors, or the better bred ones, the chances would then be in fa vor of the full-blood sire, as the difference between one-half and one-quarter. It there is anything in prepote...

T Il l omE CIRCLE. AT MIDNIGHT. The oray sea loanoeth a lonely strain, And the midnight moon is dim; And the drear and chilling wind to-night Wails out a doleful hyma; It sighs and grieves in the stunted pines, And wrests with the troubled surge, And (lies away in the dismal caves Like retiring notes of a dirge. The dull clouds flit o'er the cold, blue sky, And scatter the stars away, Or cha.se their shades o'er the ocean's breast, Like elves in their lendish play. The cliffs stand bare in the ghostly light, Which the fitful moonbeams shed: Like ancient castles deserted quite, Except by the legend dead. jIy heart, in its restless throb and beat, Is akin to the troubled sea, And the sere gray years as they drone along, Wear November skys for me.; It shares its watch at the midnight hour With the clouds, the wind and the wave, As a yew keeps vigils in winter time Above a neglected grave. AT HER DOOR. A fool for my doubting and dreaming, And following up and down! Shall I fill my life ...

MISCELLANEOUS. THE TAILOR BIRD.. Within the last few years, the interesting habits of this celebrated bird have been thoroughly investigated and described by Dr, Jerdon and others, but with more es pecial fullness by Mr. Allen Ilume.: From their accounts, we gather that the real nest is a deep soft cup,. inclosed in a leaf, or leaves, which the.bird sews together to form its receptacle. This is at various elevations, often high up in a mango tree, but as often low down among the leaves of the edible egg-plant. T''lie nest varies in appearance according to the number and kind of-leaves made use of, and is usually composed of fine cotton, with a few horse hairs and fine grass stems, the use of which is obviously to enable the cavity to retain its shape per manently.. In. some cases the nest is des cribed as having been made of wool, down, and horse nair, ana one, meiftioned by Miss Cockburn, as made of the down of seedpQds and fine grasses. Mr. Hurne has found these nests with three l...

R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. '[RIIJs.I)AY, AUGUST 8, 1878. IN about six weeks from now the Terri torial Fair will be held at Helena, and it is time for stocK breeders to make prepara Sisqi fox attending. The stock display I:L.t year was a very meagre one, and not at all what it should have been, when we consider the great importance of the stock interests of Montana. This Territory. us shown by e.timated figures, already equals in the number of her horned stock most of the older Territories and new, Westetrn States, itn C even surpasses some, while it is fast becoming recognized as the. best sheep ',ountry in Nqrth America. Seyeral causes ,combined, last year, to prevent a fair repre sentation of stock at, the Fair, one of the principal of which was, no doubt, the march of the hostile Nez PIerces through the Ter ritory, causing the stock men to devote all their attention, a short time before Fair week, to the care and security of their herds.

LIVE STOCK. HORSES SHOD OR UNSHOD. 'We notice that in England the question of using horses shod or unshod is being dis cussed. The Mark Lane Exprcss gives the testimony of a Mr. Geo. Raiinsoii, in the TZmes. who says that since 1862 he has,con stantly used horses unshod, though he has wuzed over 200 horses at on time, and used them for all kinds of purposes over rough roads. Their hoofs;required paring some times, but they grow so tough that they could not be cut with an ordinary drawing knlfe, but required steel nippers. HIe ar gues that though horses used to being shod would wear their hoolQfs out quickly if used immediately after having their shoes taken offt the same result would not follow if they were brought gradually to regnlar work, thus giving time for the soles of the hoofs to acquire the pnececsary hardness and toughness. On the London asphalt MIr. Ransom thinks horses would go much bet ter and more sately uipshod. In dry soils, and even in ,those thiat are rocky, where ...
