lTHEHOIE CIRCLE, WHO SHALL GO FIRST ? W'ho shall go first to the shadowy land, My love or I ? Whose will it be in grief to stand, And press the cold, unanswering hand, Wipe from the brow the dew of death, And catch the softly fluttering breath, Breathe the loved name, nor hear reply, In anguish watch the glazing eye; 'Ils or mine? Which shall bend ov er the wounded sod, My love or I 2 Commending the precious soul to God, Till the doleful fall of the muffled clod, Startles the mind to a consciousness Of its bitter anguish, and life'distress, )Dropping the pall o'er the love-lit past With a mournful murmur '' the last-the last;'' My love or I ? Which shall return to the desolate home, My love or I? And list for astep that shall never come, And hark for plvoice that must still be dumb, Whlle the half-etulpned senses wander back To the cheerlesgllifo, and the thorny track, Where the silent room and the vacant chair, Have memories sweet, but hard to bear; ' My love or I ?

GENERAL NEWS. FoRT Ro)BINSON, Neb.. January 10-3 a. m.--The hostile Cheyenne Indians, impris oned here since last October, having been informed by the commanding officer a few days ago that they were to be taken to their agency in the Indian territory determined to die rather than consent to such move ment. Since the information was imparted to them they have repeatedly expressed a determination to die before consenting to such movement. They have become very stubborn for the past few days, and fearing an attempt to escape, the post commander placed a strong guard Over their prison room last night. About eleven o'clock, while nearly every one was in bed except the ever'watchful guard, the savages jump ed through the windows of the prison room and made for the cold prairie, which is thickly coated with frozen snow. They tired on the guard with revolvers they had concealed since their capture, dangerously wounding fotr of the guard, of whom one has died and another is not expected to ...

THE DAIBY. COWS IAILItG IN rILN. EDernOR IIUSDAMxAx" We have i the last two weeks lost the snaking of eight or ten pounds Eof Itter. I cannot see but what the milk and cream is just the same as when we made as much as nine and one-half pounds a week from the same cow. You being a faithful granter I have no doubt but what you will willingly give some information as to why the loss of butter is so great through your valuable paper, which might prove of value to many readers. W.G. 8. Cave Guleh, 1M. T., Dec. 29, 1878. The above query is put in such an indif ferent form thatit is difficult to answer cor rectly. There are various reasons why a cow's milk will decrease in quality and quantity. The most probable cause of the .decrease at this season of the year is is the want of plenty of food. To give the regu lar amount of rtlk a cow must have all the good feed and water she *wants, and the colder the weather the more pains-taking is needed in the feedng. Cows that depend upon the range ...

T Way .I m Wiaimm aIulmihai. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1879. Tus Governor's message is an able docu ment. The different interests of the terri tory are pretty thoroughly reviewed, and 'many important recommendations calculat ed to insure a more economical administra tion of our county affalrs, and thereby re duce the burden of taxation materially, are made. These recommendations are mainly well founded, and well worth the considera tion of our law-makers. His recommenda tions in regard to requiring assessors to list every man, whether a property owner or not, call for prompt action, as at least one third of the voters in the territory are not upon the tax book. A law requiring liti gants to pay the costs In civil suits is also =very important. Such is required at pres eat In all eases under the jurisdiction of jus tice's and probate courts, but the taxing of costs of large suits to the community is an unjust discrimination in favor of capital. The reduction of t...

LIVE STOCK. 'loux of our fairmers by this time begin to realize the truth of our statement at the be-. ginning of winter in regard to the manage ment of their stock. aeedless of our nu merous warnings they sallied forth in early fall and rounded up their stock and turned them in their enclosure, for tear a yearling or two would stray from the accustomed range, and a few more days be required in the spring in gathering them tp. The con sequence is, ,in most cases, the feed inside the fields is -all gone, and the stock must now go to the commons for a living. This they are loth to do, having been keptabout the farm all winter till the severest weather Is at hand; and the amount of it is they will not go unless driven) It is a short sighted policy and we think those who have participated In it for the past half dozen years would at last see the error of their way.

THE HOMIE CIRCLE. THE LONG AGO. Oh! a wonderful stream is the river of time, As it runs through the realm of tears, With a faultless rythm, and a musical rhyme, And a broader sweep, and a surge sublime, And blends with the ocean of years. flow the winters are drifting like flakes of snow, And the summers like buds between, And the years in the sheaf as they comen and theygo, On the river's breast, with its ebb and its flow, As it glides in the shadow and sheen. There's a magical isle In the river of time, Where the softest of airs are playing, There's a cloudless sky, and a tropical clime. And a song as sweet as a vesper chime, And the Junes with the roses are staying. And the name of the isle is Long Ago, And we bury our treasures there There are brows of beauty and bosoms of snow, There are heaps of dust-but we loved them so! There are trinkets and tresses of hair. There are fragments of song that nobody sings, And a part of an infant's prayer; There's a lute unswept, and a harp w...

THE LEGISLATURE. A Glance at the Council Chamber and a Com parison with Former Councils-Some Laws that May Pass. Montana's eleventh legislature convened at noon on Monday, the 13th inst., but as yet there is only a slight showing of pro gress toward law-making. Nearly two days were spent in effecting a permanent organization, and there is room for a chap ter or two of comment upon the proceed ings, but as we are not expected to take any part in political matters, only a brief mention will be in order. The customary courtesy due the minority party in the se lection of temporary officers was not ex tended to the Republicans, but in choosing the permanent officers and attachees amends were made by the election of several Repub licans. In this some of the counties were more liberal than others, and especially .is Meagher entitled to credit for "conscien tious" generosity. The word "conscien tious" may be demurred to, but we hold that it is fitting. The Rev. John Arm strong's late sermon...

IISCELLANEOJUS. WATER IN BREAD. One hundred pounds of flour contain of dry material eighty-four pounds, and of na tural water sixteen pounds, while one hun. dred and fifty pounds of bread would con tain, in addition to the eighty-four pounds dry substance and the sixteen of natural wa ter, fifty pounds of added water. Loaves of bread become lighter in weight by baking, because during the process a large quantity of water is driven off, and yet the reason why bread, why bread. which contains ful ly forty per cent. of water after baking, re tains so much of this liquid, is because dur ing the baking the starch is.converted into gum, which holds water more strongly than starch does; and also because the glu ten of flour, when once thoroughiy wet, is very difficut to dry again, forming a tena cious coating round every hollow cell in the bread, retaining the gas and water. Again the dry crust which forms round the bread in baking is nearly impervious to water, and prevents the moisture w...

Thi Rocty Mointai HlusIa inan. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1879. IN regard to the matter of immigration, which has been agitating some of our co temporaries somewhat since the legislature convened, we think it unnecessary to make any extraordinary exertions to people our territory. What we want is a steady influx of thrifty, industrious people, ready and willing to take hold and perform their part in life, not a sudden and wild rush of for tune-hunters, such as is liable to result from excessive advertising. A pamphlet contain Ing a brief summary of our resources, to gether with the cost of living, the cost of getting here, and a few cardinal facts so eagerly sought for by those wishing to go to a new country, issued in sufficient quan tity that copies could be had to send to those enquiring of our country, would be very beneficial, and we regard the proposition of R.

LIVE STOCK. bTr3WARD says, in the Shepherd's Manual, that the Cotswold-Merino cross makes a fine sheep. They are without horns, with bare faces resembling Cotswolds, but with the pink noses of the Merino. The wool is much finer than in the Cotswold, very bright, with good curl, thickly set on the skin, and well filled with liquid yellow oil, but free from solid yolk or gum. The fleece is better closed than that of the Cots wold and is easily kept free from dirt and dust. The flesh is firmer than that of the Cotswold and thicker than in the Merino, both back and ribs being well covered. The wool is scant below the knee and hock. This is the character of the first cross. When inbred without further crossing, this character is well maintained. The cross bred animals and their produce are of strong constitution, mature quickly, becoming prime fat at 12 to 14 months old, and weigh alive, at that age, 140 to 148 pounds. #-. --- Turf, Field and Farm, speaks of the ship ment of a fine lot o...

THE HOME CIRCLE. BA YARD TA YLOR. BY HENRY W. LONGFELLOW. Read by Oliver Wendell Holmes at the Taylor Memorial, Trement Temple, Boston, Jan. 10, 1879. Dead he lay among his books! The peace of God was in his looks. As the statues in the gloom, Watch o'er Maxinilian's tomb, 8o those volumes from their shelves Watch him, silent as themselve.. Ah! his hand will never more Turn their storied pages o'er; Never more his lips repeat Songs of theirs, however sweet. Let the lifeless body rest! lie is gone who was its guest. Gone as travelers haste to leave An inn, nor tarry until eve. Traveler! in what realms afar, In what planet, in what star, In what vast aerial space, Shines the light upon thy face ? In what gardens of delight Rest thy weary feet to-night ? Poet! thou whose latest verse Was a garland on thy hearse, Thou hast sung with organ tone In Denkalion's life thine own. On the ruins of the Past Blooms the perfect flower, at last. Friend! but yesterday the bells Rang for thee their l...

KEETING OF THE WOOL-GROWERS. On Thursday evening last a goodly num ber of stock-growers assembled at the Leg islativehall. James Fergus was called to the chair, and the writer was elected secre tary. Though there was a fair representa tion of every branch of the live stocK busi ness present, the floor was occupied only by the wool-growers, the arrangement to this affect having been agreed upon at the meet ing of the cattle men the week previous. The subject of scab in sheep and the treat ment of same was ably handled by the par ticipants, demonstrating that this branch of industry in Montana is not wanting in ability. Dr. Parberry, who was first called upon, spoke of the hard task of cleansing a flock ot sheep of scab, and how easy it was after one had spent thousands of dollars in dip and the hire of help necessary for applying it, for a few diseased sheep to inoculate and cause the work to have to be done over. He thought men should be punished for bring ing scabby sheep on the pr...

THE DAI Y. BORAX FOR SALTING BUTTER. The Italian Minister of Agriculture, has addressed a communication to the Chamber 4f Commerce of Milan relative to experi anents in salting butter with borax. Blorax would appear to have a most marvelous ef fect in insuring its absolute preservatio|n. Samples of fresh butter made at the Flor ence station, and purposely not carefully treed of their buttermilk, were found, on the addition of about 8 per cent. of borax, to maintain their natural flne flavor, with out the least change whatever, for upward of three months. To attain t'his satisfacto ry result it is necessary that the borax should be perfectly dry and in very fine powder, and care must be taken to insure its thorough mixture with the whole mass of the butter operated on. Among the fur ther advantages of this plan, it is noted that borax imparts no flavor of any kind to the butter, while it is entirely harmless in its nature, and also reasonably cheap. Still la ter experiments have show...
