TIe it. Ilntail HsIan nan, BR N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1879. A GENTLEMAN writing from Madisonville, Kentucky, wishes us to give him a sketch of our country : the prospects,, or rather, inducements to settlers and colonies, to gether with the prices of stock of all kinds, what it is necessaryfor immigrants to bring, etc., etc. These things have been expatiated upon th these columns to such an extent that it is difficult to tell anything new, or frame an article that would be of interest-to our Mon tEna readers, who have become so familiar with them that they think the whole world ought to know them by this time. We will say in briet, however, that Mon tana was originally a mining country, but atubsequently develtepnnt proved it to be great in agricultural and :pastoral resources. Obatse of lotty mountains traverse the en tire extent of the territory, between which are;beautitul sanlit valleys, watered by In .umerable sparkling streams, from the mountain torrent to...

LIVE STOCK. TEE INCREASE AND PROFITS OF TWELVE TEARS' CATTLE GROWING IN MONTANA. Just now, as capital is seeking our coun try for investment, the following computa tion, showing what may be done in our ter ritory in cattle-growing may prove both in teresting and beneficial. This table was prepared by an eminent and practical stock-grower at the instance of Col. A. J. Vial, of. Helena, one of the most extensive cattle-growers of the Yel lowstone Valley. The increase in twelve years is astonish ingly large, and we think has only to be studied a little to satisfy capitalists that the investment in cattle is a sure road to fortune. Better,'we think, and much more reliable, than to risk money in mines or merchandis Ink. The grass grows free and spontaheous upon our plains and mountains, and we wonder that it is allowed to dry up and waste when there are thousands of dollars ylag, idle and rusting in the treasuries and bankstof the country. Theecompiler has allowed two per cent. per annum...

THE BOME CIRCLK. THE PARTING HOUR. There's something in the "parting hour," V ill still the warmest heart Yet kindred, comrades, lovers, friends Are fated all to part, But this I've seen-and many a pang Has pressed it on my mind, The one who goes is happier Than those who stay behind. No natter what the journey be Adventurous, dangerous, far, To wild deep, or to bleak frontier, To solitude or war, Still something cheers the heart that dares Is all of human kind; And they that go are happier Than those they leave behind. The bride goes to the bridegroom's home With doubting and with tears; But does not Hope her rainbow spread. Across her cloudy tears ? Alas! the mother who remains,. What comfort can she fltd. ?' But this-the gone is happier Than the one she leaves behind !: Have you a trusty comrade dear An old and valued friend? Be sure your term of sweet eoncourso At length will have an end. And when you part-as part you will O take it not unkind If he who goes is happier Than the ...

FROM BEAVERHEAD. EnITOR HUBBANDMAN: Cordially sympathizing in your efforts to keep the .HUSBANDMAN wide awake and prosperous, I write, not so much to send news, of which there is a derth at present, as to give my opinion with that of others on current topics. The black-leg seems to be disappearing from among the cattle here, and hopes are entertained of its riddance this year. People are paying their princi pal attention to convalescing from the lung and throat diseases that have been epidemic here this winter, and a series of protracted meetings at the Poindexter school house are projected for next week, to begin on Wednesday, I believe. The boys had a debating club in running order a short time ago, but business cares, and a desire on the part of the disputants to all speak at once, caused a decline in the at tendance, and it is now like the'dynasty of the Caesars and the tower of Babel, a thing of the past. Some occupy their time in tak ing a mental birdseye view of the doings of...

IJSCELLANEOUS. MAI JAiXMER FROM STRAW. A person named;t . . . aamilton, of Bush ,nell, Illinois, has been in this city for two .or three days past, with samples of lumber, which has attracted much attention among the lumbermen and which, if it possesses all the virtues that are claimed for it, is one of the most important inventions of its kind ever brought to notice. If it is a success it will form anew era in the art of building. To make hard wood lumber out of com Al-on wheat.straw, with all effects of polish t and finish which is obtainable on the hard est of black walnut and mahogany, at as a little cost;as clear pine lumber can be manu ·actured for, is certainly wonderful. Such are the claima of Mr. Hamilton for the straw board lumber which he has been ex hiibiting in this city, and the samples which he produces would go far toward verifying his claims. The process of manufacture, as explained by Mr. Hamilton, is as follows: Ordinary straw board, sueh as is manufac tured at ar...

T Rocky Im ltal H a tiiia. B. N. SUTHIIELIN, Editor. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 90, 1879. TaH outlook for Montana next season is good. The past season has been a prosper oqs one. The production greatly exceeded that of the year previous, yet there has been no tumble in prices as was anticipated. This proves our oft repeated assertion in regard to the increase of consumption. Next spring we look for a much larger acreage to be sown than previously. This will neces satate a large supply of farm labor, which .will have to be supplied by immigration. It crops are good, and it is fair to presume they wtil be reasonably so-the next harvest will be the greatest Montana has ever known. Aqd it is necessary that it should be, for as this year's consumption exceeds that of last, so will the amount consumed next year ex. eeed that of this year, in the natural course ,:o events, and if we have the large immi gration expected, the increase of consump tion will more than double that of this year over last...

THE HOlE CIRCLE. THE VAQUERO.* BY FRANK DESPREZ. Oh, who is so free as a gallant vaquero ? With his beauty of bronze 'neath his shady sombrero: lie smiles at his love, and he laughs at his fate, For he knows he is lord of a noble estate: The prairie's his own, and he mocks at the great. " IIo-ho! IIai! IHo-ho! Head 'em off! Turn 'em back! Keep 'em up to the track! Ilo-Hillo! Ilo-hillo! Cric--crac!" Oh, Donna Luisa is proud as she's fa.r; But she parted last night with a lock of her hair, A ad under the stars she roams, seeking for rest, While she thinks of the stranger that came from the West; And Juan bears something wrapped up in his breast- " Ho-ho! Ha!! Ho-ho! Head 'em off! Turn 'em back! Keep 'em up to the track! IIo-hillo! Ho-hillo! Cric-crac!" His proudest possessions are prettily placed, His love at his heart, and his life at his waist. And if in a quarrel he happen to fall, Why, the prairie's his grave, and his poncho'st his pall, And Donna Louisa-gets over it all ! " Ho-ho...

MISGCELLAINEOUS CABE OF THE EYES. A writer on the care of the eyes in an Er. glish paper, makes the following sugges tions in regard to preserving the eyesight: " The sight in most persons begins to fall from forty to fifty years of age, as is evi dence4 y an histinctive proterence for large print;. seat near the window for reading is selected; there is an effort to place the pa per at a convenient distance from the eye, or to turn it so as to get a particular reflec tion of the light; next the finger begins to be placed under the lime read, and there is a winking of the eye as it to clear it, or a looking away at some distant object to rest it; or the fin;rs are pressed over the clos ed lids in the direction oi the nose, to re move the tears caused by struining. Favor the failing sight as much as possi ble. Looking into a bright fire, especially a coal fire, is very injurious to the eyes.

LIVE STUOC. .AZLAOTBZISTIOS OF TrE PEZRCHBON IOBWAN HOZ8E. As there has been much interest taken in the Peroheron-Norman horse of late, we propose to publish a history of the breed, and illustrate each portion of it as we may publish it, with cuts of some of the finest specimens of the race, which we trust may be read with interest, and prove of value to those who are interested in the breeding of horses. The Percheron horse is generally fifteen or sixteen, and occasionally seven teen hands high; is of a sanguine tempera ment, mixed iq variable proportions with the musco lymphatic; his color is almost always gray and is among the characteris tio features that first stripe the eye. Ac cordinr to their predominance these tem peramenlts constitute varieties wlich may beclassed thus: First-The light Percheron in which the sanguine temperament predominates. Second-The draft Percheron in which the lympatic temperament is the most ftUlly developed. Third-The intermediate type between these...
