J 11HO1E CIRCLE. Oil, FOR A SWING IN THE OLD ELM TREE. Orh f, a swing in the old elm tree And a breath from the clover llields' I'd give the state of a palace hall 1n'l the spices that India yields To see again in the old-time way The meadows and pastures I(knew, Tgie hills and the valleys, the rocks and the trees, Alnd the woods where the wild-flowers grew; T) lie once more in the thick, soft grass With the sweet winds brushing by, Tihe world outside and a heart at peace, Atd above the summer sky; To watch the clouds in their shifting lights And the mist: on the diht.nt hills, Anl dreams to the music of rustling leaves And the voices of dancing rills; To wade once more in the cooling stream That wound by the roadside below, Where the laurel bloomed, and the eglantine And the imaiden-hair used to grow; To kneel again in the little church Where 1 prayed with a childish trust Ere the haIunlting doubts of a later time Had touched it with moth and rust; .

MIIS CELLANEOUS. -g . DAIRY-WOMEN. On large dairy farms in this country the milking is of necessity done by men, but on smaller ones it were better, in many cases, that it should be done by women. They seem to undeastand how to do it almost in tuitively, and cows themselves prefer to be milked by them. It is said that they fre quently accommodate themselves to women milkers, while they refuse to "le-t down," or yield a ready tflow to men. It was form erly the case, when the occupations of the ldairy-maid were considered among the pleasantest duties which engaged the atten tention of the daughters of our well-to-do farmers. Milking cows is known to be one of the most healthful of all rural employ ments. The aversion which girls of the present day have to this branch of dairy work arises in part from the unfavorable conditions iunder which they are frequently required to perform the service-exposure to storms, untimely hours, filthiness of the stables or barn-yard, long distances to c...

The Rocky ollltain llsbandman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TFIURSDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1878. LEsS than a year ago we took occasion to suggest to our readers the necssity of locat ing good homes while there was an appor tunity of getting choice of the country, though few have profited by our reminder. There have been hundreds of new homes built since then, but they have been built mostly by immigrants. The old residents seem to think that there is time enough, so puts it ofli from year to year. A large share of our readers have not yet used their home stead or pre-emption rights. They regard them as valueless, and are indisposed to take advantage of them. The time will soon come when they will see the error of their way. Mayhap it may be too late for them to profit by it, but it will come nevertheless. Already we notice a marked change in the value of real estate. Good farms are becoming valuable. Only a few years ago the best ranch could have been purchased at less than the cost of their im...

LIVE STOCK. IMAGINARY DISEASES OF HORSES. LAMPAS. This is a term applied to a swelling of the soft parts behind the upper front- teeth; it is sometimes a real disease, though one of little consequence, but oftener exists only in the imagination. It is caused in young ani mals by teething just, as a similar conges tion of the gums originates in children; in adult horses, it sometimes occurs with dis eases of the stomach and bowels, troin sym pathy with these organs. It is, therefore, generally seen in such animals as have been po ly fed, in those that have been winter ed on coarse, innutritious feed-in such ani mals the digestive organs are always more or less impaired, and intestinal parasites multiply to a surprising extent. We can therefore, understand why frizzly hair, near the root of the tail, is considered symptom of lampas, since parasites cause an irrita tion and itching of the rectum, which leads the animal to rub its tail against the sides of the stall or other objects, an...

LIVE STOCK. Ga rNG for farm stock in Montana during winter differs materially from that of other countries. Our hei'ds and liocks which de pupd upon the range and know nothing of being fed1, need but little shelter, HIorses ..nd cattle need none more than nattu e atf fords. All that is necessary in their case is to drive them to their winter r:ane before the winter storms begin, They will seek such sheltering places as suit tlhemi best, and the less they are molested after the cnow begins to fly, the better they are off. Sheep need some shelter, but they have frequently 'wintered without any at all, and where a Klock is affected with scab, the colder their quarters-juit so they do not freeze-the less this is disease aflfcts them. With farm stock, however, it is quite diiferent. It is best never to feed these at all unless you prepare to feed all winter, and it will never pay to give them half rations, as they will not rustle for themselves in such cases. Where stock are fed they sho...

MISCELLANEOUS. REMARKABLE ECHOES. In the sepulcher of Metella, the wife of Sulla, in the Roman Campagna, there is an echo which repeats five times, in five difler ent keys, and will also give back with dis tinctiveness a hexameter line which re quires two and a half seconds to utter it. On the banks of Ihe Naha, between Bingen and Coblentz, an echo repeats seventeen times. The speaker may scarcely be heard anul yet the responses are loud and distinct, sometimes appearing to approach, at other times to come from a great distance. Echoes eqally ,beautiful and romantic are to be heard ii our own islands. In the cemetry of the Abercorn fa~l:ly,, at Pai.sley, when the.door of the chapel is shut, the reverber ations are equal to the sound of thunder. It a single note of music is breathed the tone ascends gradually with a multittu of eclh oes till it dies in soft and bewitching mur murs. In this chapel is interred Margery, the durlghter of Bruce, and the wite of WVm. Wallace. The echo at t...
