R. N. 8UT>'IELTIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1r79. T.HOUGH much has been writtenof. the re sources of eastern Montana, the Musselshell and Judith, two of the-bestivalleys in this section, have never received'anythling like a fair consideration from.the press. The Mus selshell is over, one hundred miles in length. The main valley,,which lies along the river, is from five to.ten miles in width on either side, and stretches from Martinsdale seventy miles east, embracing a fine extent of agrl cultural land capable of producing as fine yields as the soil in the richest and most fer tile portions of the states in the Mississippi valley, and will, no doubt, produce as great a variety of fruits and tender vegetables as any valley in Montana. Upon these lands are interspersed some of the most beautiful natural meadows that theeye ever.beheld. Back from the river a,short distance the table lands rise; and on the north slope, gently back to the nr ngtatps,, which are densely titmbered,, ...

LIVE STOCK. TEE CATTLE DISEASE. arkroa HvsBAxDxAx: By request for the benefit of stockmen in localities that have not been visited with the present cattle disease that is raging in this section of the territory, and from pres ent Indications will keep spreading. I will give the little information that I have gain ed, both from experience and heresay, as to its first appearance in the territory, also symptom of animals from first to last after the attack; also condition of animal after death. I have been told that a few head of calves died on Red rock over a year ago, but no agnelusion was arrived at at the time as to tlie cause of their death, but since I hear they have come to the conclusion that it was the same disease now raging among the young stock in this vicinity, from the fact that they commenced dying there again as near as I can learn in July last. The herds of Red rock are the first cattle after crossing the divide on the stage road comn ints north. It gradually made its ...

THE iEE 1 CIRCLE. -MORN AND EVE. BY E. M. WAS5IBUPtNE. Crowned with roses; decked with lillies; White as wi'eaths of drifted snow Stands a maiden in the dawning Of her girlhood's tender glow. How the stlnbeams glint around her, Lighting up the glowing face P'urd as angels, bright as morning, Stamped with every girlish grace. oever sunlight fell more golden Than her rippling waves of hair; Eyes like Heaven's banded azure, Free from drifting clouds of care. IAps like rosebud cleft asunder, Arched with Cupid's tender bo w, Set to music, tuned to gladness, Like the brooklet's babbling flow. D)reams with woof of golden splendor, Tangled with Hope's rosy thread, Mark the path where sun-kissed blossoms Bloom beneath her dainty tread. In her heart there dwells but sunshine; Summer smiles o'er all the land; Brightly-tinted, softly-murm'ring, Break life-ripples on the strand. Sitting in the twilight's gloaming, Where the dusky shadows fall, Weaving fancies that are sombre As a darkly threaded...

THE kIAlY. 1OOD FOR WINTER BILl. Food of a succulent nature seems best adapted to increase the secretion of milk. It has been supposed that the best flavored milk could not be produced from dry food, and that as milk contains eighty-seven per cent. of water, it requires tood composed in a large proportion of liquid to produce it. The best argtment in support of this is that nature furna(tes this succulent. food during summer, when the largest quantity of milk is produced, and that it is always safe to imitate nature. An important quality of sncctlent over dry food is its greater digest ibility. A larger percentage of the food contgined in grass is digestible than after the same grass has been dried into hay. In the present stage of agriculture in the west, it would be labor lost to attempt to substitute the root crop for its great staple, Indian corn. Yet even there a small quan tity of roots may be profitably grown, to be used as a healthful change of food in win ter. And, as the w...

TBe Rdcly ..Illutaia ll uasbaman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 1879. WV'E have already discutsed in these col umns many important measures which should come before our territorial legislature which is to convene on Monday next. There are however many subjects that will arise which have not been mentioned, our discus sions having been devoted only to the lead ing features. One important matter which we had overlooked is brought to mind by our Beaverhead correspondence, to be found on our fourth page-that of repealing the law which refers to the range of scabby sheep. We opposed its enactment on the ground that it would prove ineffectual and' could not be enforced, and would be unjust if it could be. We callifor its repeal on the same ground. It hlas.not been enforced-in a single instance that we have heard of, and could not be, hence should be expunged from the statute books. A law which would give one man a range twelve miles in diameter-pastur age sufficient for th...

LIVE STOCL. #10 =rZA XZR8TIVQROS AND We take the liberty to make the follow ng 'extract from a private letter written by Mr. James Mauidin, of Beaverhead county: I think we sheold have a law, ofering a suitable reward for the destruction of coy etes, wolves, etc., and a repeal oa the sheep law, passed Feb. IIth, 1876. As that law now reads, a man can come in upon our range with a band of sheep and run o4 all our horses and cattle, and defy as fromeven bringing sheep within Bxl xmiles of him un der penalty of arrest, etc. etc. As that law now reads, we are compelled to stock our range with sheep previous to the arrival of an intruder, or give him the range and pull out, fr It is almsost Impossible to bring sheep into the country and have tdeea free of scab. I have read a number of arti~Ues in the press on the cattle disease, some of them ev idently from the pen of gentlemen that have no knowledge of what they are writ ing about, and I feel fully as incompetent to write up the disease...

THE HOME CIRCLE. TWO LEA VES. BT MATTIE L. ROBETS. A crimson leaf and a golden leaf, With sunlight all aglow, Drifted away from the parent stem To the untried realms below. A light wind caught the golden leaf And carried it out to sea; But the crimson leaf lay safe and warm Beneath the mother tree. * Sottly the silver dews came down When the rose tints left the sky, And the evening star smiled down on them With tender, watchful eye. Then the morning sunlight kissed awake The leaf beneath the tree. And lightly touched the golden flake Adrift upon the sea. The cold wave tossed the tender thing To and fro on its breast, And dashed it sgainst the sharp shore rocks And would not let it rest. And it sighed, "' Ah me, for my quiet home, From the pitiless waters free!" And the crimson leaf in its sheltered nook, Cried, " Oh, for the sunny sea!" It longed to wander away, away, Over the waters wide: But instead of the ocean's spray, for her Was the dew of the eventide. So the days slipped by ...

T 8 RBCky Iln Htaia Husbadmall, R. N. SUTIHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1879. DURING the past few weeks we have dis cussed in our plain and matter-of-fact way, the principal topics which should come be fore the present session of the legislature, and need not repeat them again, as most of the members are readers of our paper. We have dealt in no visi6nary or prema ture schemes, but have devoted our efforts to bringing into notice a few practical sub jects and induce the passage of a few whole some laws, such as experience has proved wodld be highly beneficial, and in order that this may be accomplished, we would urge their early consideration. Forty days is rather too short a period to undertake a general revision of our statutes. It is folly to attempt what cannot be readily accom plished. Too much legislation is not good for the people, and a few orrors which may creep in through haste and a want of proper deliberation may make it worse for 'the country than if no session ...
