R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1879. ONE OF THE most urgent needs of our ter ritory at present is more adequate military protection. The experience of Minnesota and Idaho should teach the government the one important lesson that there is nothing better calculated to lead to Indian wars than opportunity. Every outbreak of modern times can be traced directly to this cause. The Indian naturally regards the white man as his enemy, and is ready to strike him a blow at any time there is an opportunity offered, The present unsettled state of affairs in Idaho is due to this fact, and ad nmodlshes us that if we would not have a repetition of the scenes enacted in our sister territory we should be prepared. More efficient protection is demanded long oar. northern border. Fort Missoula should be strengthened. A new post, or at least a summer camp, should be established near Bannack, and a new post at Henry's lake, in Madison county. Tnis would give us a good line of defense west an...

Assistant Secretary-W. H. SUTHERLIN, Diamond City. CROSS-BREEDING FOR NARKETABLE WOOLS. We have the following advice to wool growers from Gray, Dewey, Gould & (;o. in regard to the crosses necessary to pro duce the article of wool most in demand at present: The wool most wanted in Eastern mar kets and consequently commanding the highest prices is the grade known as No. 1 or fine medium, or three-eights blood. It happens fortunately that this is the grade most easily produced here, and the most profitable to the Montana wool-grower. It is the result of a cross of any long-wool va riety upon the Merino, and would be easi ly produced here by crossing Cotswold, Leicestershire or Shropshire upon full or three-quarter blood Merino. It would be reasonably nearly attained by crossing the common or Oregon sheep...

MISCELLANEOUS. MUTE CATTLE. M. Paul Bert, in a recent lecture at the sorbonne, on the late Claude Bernard, nar rated a singular stratagem which which was invented byathe latter during the last Fran o-German war, and which might be util ized without difficulty under the same or even under different circumstances. It was proposed to revictual Paris, which was strictly blockaded by the German forces. A large number of.cattle had been collected, waiting for an opportunity to cross the Ger man lines. But a difficulty was to silence these animals, as their cries would attract the attention of the enemy. Claude Ber nard proposed to practice upon them the .section of the nerve which enables them to emit their usual cries. The operation is so .easy that it could be executed in a fvew see onds by an ordinary butcher. None of the animals appeared to sufler in any way by the mutilation which made themni mute. Un fortunately, however, toie mi itlry \novf e ment proved alaiureL auid for dtlikr ca...

This is a very important measure, and simple enough .too, and our cotemporary can assist very materialty in the good work. Good men are needed in every section of the territory. Make the new-comer to know that Helena 'al~neis not Montana; tell them not to sit down around the hotels and boarding houses eof that city and wait for some one to hunt them up to give them big wages, but scatter them out through-our agricultural and stock regions.. Farmers,. busy with their crops, have not time to go to Helena In, search of hands Our flock-masters are too busy to leave home,' and Helena is too remote for them, to go there it search of men, and con , sequently manage to-get on without them.

A short time since it made its appearance in my herd. After the first one died, we skinned him and found the blood a perfect jelly un der the skin, on nearly half the body. Near ly all our neighbors say it was veritable "blackleg." When the second one was ta ken sick we waiteda little while, to be sure it was the same thing, and killed him. On opening him we found, his second stomach as dry as a chip. This had caused his death. The calves had been well ted on early-cut tame hay, with a light feed of oats and corn. But for a few. days they had been eating I dead grass onthe meadow, and I now feel sure this,,with a lack of water, caused the disease.. Another w...

THE ItOME CIRCLE. COME UP HIGIHER. BY FRANCES L. MACE. O'cr these new Hesperinn valleys, Sought and foulrd by treedon:'s own, Echoed down the hallowed ages Came a spirit thrilling tone, Sweet and clear and steadfast flowing Set not womau here in vain! Unto us its heavenly meaning- '' Conme up higher," the refrain. Come up higher! By the fountain Where Rebecca meekly bore C;ool refleshment to the stranger Resting near her father's door; Suddenly the mlessage sounded, And the damsel, speaking low, Answered, to the wondering ages, As to Isaac, " I will go." lDeborah heard beneath the palm tree, And her soul in lofty lire In strong prophecy responded To the summons, ''come up highear!" Miriam heard-the dark red waters iShuddering hid the pagan horde, And with joy of dance and timbrel Her immortal song was poured. Not alone to lives heroic Israel's daughters rose of old; Fair Joanne, thou shepherd maiden, Be thy golden story told. From thy flocks divinely summoned, Ready heart and fearle...

GENERAL NEWS. A Boston dispatch of May 2d says: Chas. F. Freeman, of Pocassel Massachusetts, yesterday killed his five-year-old daughter. The man is a Second Adventist, and has been attending revival meetings. About a week ago he claimed to have received "wonderful revelations," and has not eaten or slept since. He says the Lord directed him to sacrifice his little daughter and he declares that she will rise again in three d~ys. Yesterday morning he sent word to the neighbors that he would make the reve lation known and offer an orthodox sacri fice. In the afternoon a number of Second Adventists assembled at his house, but the child. had then been killed. The little one was transfixed with a knife and her blood poured out upon the table, improvised as ati altar. Freeman had driven every one from the house and locked and barred the doors and windows, and having firearms threatened death to any one who interfered. Alone with the dead child, he goes through horrible incantations which,...

Te Rocky Molntail lhldalla. R. N. SUTIHE~LIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 15, 1879. SCARCELY a day passes but we hear some discontented individual inquiring what the great mass of immigrants seeking Montana this summer are to do. We have answered this plain, simple question time and again, and will answer it once more: Do? Why, do as hey did in the land from whence they came, only a great deal better; do as others do here-engage in the various pursuits by which our people prosper. Those who are more venturesome will find an ample field in the- mines; those with capital at their command will find remunerative investment in pastoral pursuits, while those with less means will find ample room for farming and most excellent facilities for building up com fortable and happy homes. " But," says one, "we admit all this-that there is plenty of land, and good opportumnities, but some thing else is necessary. Farming is already - overdone. What is to be done with the product when it is garnered ?" S...

Assistant Secretary-1W. H. SUTHERLIN, Diamond City. THE TRAIL VS. THE RAIL. The following from the American Stock Man on this important subject will prove of interest to the stockmen of Montana, since they are interested in knowing the best means of reaching the eastern markets and may learn somewhat from the experience of Texas : For a long time the few who thought that the coming change in the manner of marketing Texas cattle could be averted, refused to admit that any plan could be bet ter the old one of driving the unfortunate stock something more than four hundred miles to reach a place no nearer the market where the consumer awaited them, than that from which they started. The most careless observer needed bat' a moment's study to convince him ttljt, with suitable railroad facilities, nothing could stop...
