hTuCK DJEPARTMEIT. (Contributions for this pate respectfully s*licited from stockmen and others._ CATTLE IN THE BhITIBH NORTH WEST. Whatever weather the remainder of the winter shall bring, we may expect to hear doleful reports about the cattle business across the line. The whole of the British northwest is not adapted to the range stock business as conducted in Montana, but a large scope of country with Macieod near the centre is blessed with almost as favorable conditions. Last year one company lost so heavily that prospective investors were deterred from entering the field. The reason for that loss was very apparent to the old timers, and instead of proving a dis couragemnent should be viewed as so much paid for experience that will lead to good results. Th'j agent of the company selected in the summer time a site where the grass stood invitingly thick, breast high -which is the indication of a heavy deposit of snow. A band of fine cattle was driven in late, worn with the drive, ...

STOCK DEPARiTME T. (Contributions for this pae respectfully solicited trom stockmen And othere.] Care of Horses. Regularity in feeding is more iimpor tant than is usually apipreiated, with horses as well as with milk-producing cows. Wholesome food and sufficient quantity at stated times is essential to healthful growth and efficient service. The amount of rations is governed by the age of the. animal and whether at work or idle. No rule of pounds and ounces of hay and grain can be laid down for" any horse, and the one in charge needs good judgment to keep the horses stronr and in a healthy condi tion. A knowledge of the requirements of a locomotive would help many horse owners to a better understanding of the laws of feeding. Tile amount of coal, water, etc., depends upon the easy movement of every part of the engine, and upon the work being done. The horse is the engine, and more than that, because it is a living creature it has ad ditional wants. Plenty of food and water are only ...

From Saturdav'e Daily Fort Benton was not a little excited on Friday when a courier brought in the information that William M. Jones, a well known citizen of Choteau county, had been killed by Indians on Arrow creek. It was rather a startling piece of news, as it is now three or four years since an outrage of this kind has taken place in the county, and our people had about made up their minds that the end had come. Yesterday's report, however, was a reminder of old times, when such things were common, and the tragedy was the general subject of conversation. "Fhe news was brought in the city by W. S.

DIIFTWOOD Gathered Along the Booming Missouri by the Scribes of the River Press. From Wednesday's Daily. The ice jam commenced moving in front of town about 10 o'clock yesterday morning. This good news soon spread around, and in a few minutes the side walk on Front street was crowded with a smiling throng, who were assured that all danger was past now that the gorge was going out. The crowd was soon disappointed, however, as the floating imiasses of ice began to move slower and -lower, and at about half-past ten came to a deadlock again. By that time the pp)l)er end of the gorge had moved down froml the end of Roosevelt's island to the uppier ferry boat landing. The ice field was closely watched all dpay long by the interested spectators, :I(nd an onward movement was detected several times, but not enough to make a decided difference in the positioni of the jallu. At seven o'clock last evening, however, the great body of ice started downl streami more rapidly, and at ten o'clock but...
