A T&0C j.. D RATMENT. [CO tIetiono for thls" pa eispectfully solicited from itoCKinen and others.] SSHEEP, RAISING. The following from the Calgary (N. W. T.) Herald, which has for some weeks been persistently urging the in troduction of sheep into that country, will be read with interest here, as there likely to grow up a considerable de mand from the north for the acclimated sheep of Montana, where the climate and range conditions are somewhat sim ilar : At the present time, when speculation i3 rampant throughout the west, and men are daily exerting themselves to devise some scheme by which they can become suddenly rich, it is not to be wondered at that the slower but surer roads to competence are passed by un heeded. Mineral excitements and real estate fevers are the all absorbing topics, and seem to be the chief incentives in attracting eastern people to the far west. But in our opinion it would seem as if °the key note to Alberta's future pros perity has only just been struc...

'1 K DB AIRTMEI T. (Contributions for this page respectfaully solicited from stockmen and others.] Montana as a Stock Breeding SeciQion. The desirability of Montana as a breed ing section is fast becoming appreciated by horsemen and cattle breeders who have visited it and seen for themselves. Governor Schuyler Crosby has written to his friend Pierre Lorillard, suggest ing to him the propriety of sending a dozen or so of his yearlings to Montana as an experiment, believing firmly that the result would lead to its repetition. He suggests that they be turned out for the summer on one of the mountain ranges, where the pasture is equal to any in the world. Moreover the climate is salubrious, the altitude being some five thousand feet. Now, it is an accepted fact that atmospheric currents carry fertility. A learned authority has o0o served that the air is an inexhaustabie source, whence all that lives draws its existence--an immense reservoir, into which all that dies pours its last breat...
