Any more stories of Di'mond Dick, li'es.dts that yarn of the wolves at bay ? Whyv, bless your gizzard they crowd so thick That I might rattle them off all day. What was the mooniest thing he done? Well, Richard wasn't a moony man; Kept his wits handy, every one, Struck pay-dirt without wasting a pan.

They passed vig orous resolutions against the reduction of the tariff on wool, and appointed del egates to the general meeting of wool growers of the west, to be held at Denver on the 12th inst. Montana, fast becom ing one of the principal wool growing sections of the country, should by all means have a delegate in that conven tion, but we are sorry to say that no steps to that end have been taken, and it is now too late to do anything, The wool growers of this territory should join their voices with those of other sec tions in protesting against the proposed reduction intthe taiff on wool.

STOCK DEPARTMENT. [Contritutions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] A SPRING BUCOLIC In which Montana's Cattle Industry is Interestingly Discussed. A son of the Emerald Isle remarked that "the present winter is a thing of the past." Practically, it was all em braced within the first three weeks of February, and during that storm the alarmists predicted all manner of evil which was not verified. It is natural for people on the outside to base their estimates of probable loss in stock upon the known character of eastern herds, which, being accustomed to food and shelter during the winter, would perish without that aid. THE STOCKMEN'S EXPERIENCE teaches them that the semi-wild cattle upon the ranges acquire the hardiness of buffaloes, and, like them, an instinct that enables them to survive :the most severe storms. It is highly probable that the ice king exhausted himself in his last great effort, and th'mt there will now be no more wintry storms, excepting...
