THE lROME CIRCLE. .FARMER GRAY. IIY EUGENE J. HALE. You may envy the joy o' the firmer, And talk o' his free, easy life You may sit at his bountiful table, A,n' praise his industrious wife; El you worked in the woods in the winter, Or tfrllowed the furrow all day, With a team o' unruly young oxen, An' feet heavy-loaded with clay Ef you held the old plow, I'm a thinkin' You'd sing in a different way. You may dream o' the white-crested daisies,. An' illies that wear sech a charm; Blt it gives me a heap o' hard labor To keep 'em from spoilin' my farm.

GENERAL NEWS. Montana's new district attorney, J. W. Andrews, Jr., of New York, was confirmed by the Senate on the 8th inst. The race between the Yale and Harvard scullers took place near Worcester, Mass., on May 9th, and resulted in a victory for the Harvards.

IISCELLAHIOUS. THAtT GIRL or l)N," a true story of real life in the best and most fashionable society in Washington, is pub lihbed this day by T. B. Peterson & Broth ers, Philadelphia, and it will be found to be one'of the most brilliant novelettes of the season. On the simplest thread of plot is strung a story remarkable for telling situa tions; being full of verve, and the fruit of a minute observation of society, at receptions, balls. gerpans, lunches and in private so ,ciety, with such a vein of humor running through it, that it will achieve a pronounced success. Mable Vincy's night-ride with her lover's enemy, Stephen Makenzie; is de scribed with an intensity and simplicity, that makes it one of the most vivid and striking."hits" in modern literature. The handsoqme and true-hearted Philip Bough :ton; the veteran flirt, Blanche Delzile; the weak, though good-intentioned Clive West erleigh; the courtly Marquis de Creve Courmont, the poet of the Rocky Mours .tains; with severa...

Thie Rocy Mountain Hsbalinanm. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, MAY 29, 1879. THE refreshing showers of late have en livened vegetation, and mountain and plain are carpeted with green, yet the indications are that the grass crop will be light corn pared with that of other years, and should our predictions prove true our stock-men in thickly settled valleys will find it emi nently to their advantage to use some econ omy with their pasturage. Upon our mountain slopes are thousands of acres of the finest grass land in the world-a wilder ness of stock feed that is never cropped. This vast extent of country is buried, deep beneath the snow in winter, and' if rendered of any service must be pastured in summer. Stock-men, by driving their flocks and herds to these ranges in summer will preserve their low land pasturage for winter. On the frontier, where there is unlimited space, this is a matter of no concern, but some of our valleys, are closely grazed and of a short grass season every ...

LIVE STOCK. Directory of the Mqntana Stock-Growers' Asse ciation. President-R. 8. FORD, Sun river, Cho teau county. Treasurer-J. H. MIN(, Helena, Secretary-Ross DEEGAN, Helena. Assistant Secretary-W. H. SUTHERLIN, Diamond City. WE regret to see the indifference with which the stock men take hold of the pro ject of organizing associations in the several valleys. It is probably caused by the failure of some one to make a move, or the lack of opportunity for neighbors to have an ex pression of views upon the subject. But now that the season for the spring round up of stock is at hand, it is to be hoped that the herdsmen may talk the matter over and bring about the organization of District so cieties throughout the whole country. Cer tainly there should be no hesitency in uni ting with such an organization. We think it of special interest to the owners of small herds since they will receive the same bene fits as the large owners, and the voice and vote of the man owning 25 head of cattl...

IN MEMORIAM. ya On the evening of the 24th day of April, ch A. D. 1879, all that was mortal of Carrie E. ty Stone was borne to its last resting place in as the cemetery near Canyon Ferry, Meagher di county. Montana. al Mrs. Stone came to this territory in the fo fall of 1866, with her husband, Alexander 10 Daunring, leaving home and friends in Ore- m gon to seek health and fortune in our then $1 new mountain land. Unaccustomed to tii drudgery or hard work of any kind from ci childhood, she found in her new home the qi greatest task of her life, housekeeping in a ti log cabin, but she entered into her new vo cation with'all the zeal of the true woman that she was. At the expiration of two years they had accumulated a fair share of this world's goods, when she met with a u sad bereavement in the death of a little daughter. Not having inherited a strong o constitution, though highly sensitive in or- A ganization, the shock almost took her to the grave, but knowing that she had other lo...

WHAT IS FARINA I The word "farina" is of Latin origin, and B comes from far, meaning a kind of grain- "spelt," known as German wheat, which n was formerly used by the Romans either N roas ted whole or ground into flour. Hence P the name was originally applied to the ,nmat- al ter; but as this matter was also ground in- a to flour, the name came to be applied to the flour likewise, and, by degrees, to the c ground product of other cereals. "Farine" is at present the French name tor flour, and we may quote the word "flour" as very similar in use to "farina." "Flour" means the matter, as when we speak of "flour" without any prefix;or qualification, it is un derstood to mean wheat flour, but flour also j applies to the form, and is used in a second- d ary sense to mean anything ground into I powder. Dr. Ure defines "farina" as "the flour of any species of corn or starchy root, such as the potato, etc." The chemical def- r flinition of "farina" is "starch" or "tecula." e The name "farina...

Rocky Mountain Husbandman. R,. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. W. H. SUTHERLIN, Assistant Editor. THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 1879. THE REGION of the Rocky mountains long known as the far unknown West is destined soon to become the most thrifty portion of the Union. Civilization toiled years in its march down the western slope ot the Alle ghanies, paused long by the banks of the Mississippi, then leaped across the great American desert and over the snow-capped Rockies to the Pacific. And not until there was no other retreat for the American pio neer did this germ of civilizatlon'plant itself in the bosom of the Rocky mountains, a country of the most wonderful resources, and easiest of development of them all. Of this region the great North-west is the most promising. The great advantages afforded by the lofty mountains are only beginning to be appreciated. The rich deposits of gold and silver which are gradually being unearthed add thousands annually to the circulating medium, thus preventing the ha...

THE DAIHY. THERE is no industry in Montana that has achieved the success attained by our dairy interest. In all the history of the ter ritory from its first settlement to the pres ent day we doubt if there has been so much as a single failure, and yet the business is not crowded and the prediction not over done, but well within the limits of the con -umption. Every year there are a number of new beginners embarking in the business and every year a number of old operatives retire. On all .hands we find men who made their start in the business, and on all hands we find men who are doing a flour ishing business ready to retire, from the fact that dairying entails a large amount of labor on the larmer's family, and that stock-growing, which is almost as reniuner atiye, is very lucrative; and it is to this more perhaps than any other cause that the dairy interests owe the present remunera tion. Summers come and go and there is no ehange, and when the study the interests carefully we find...

MISCELLANEOUS. A REAL LIVE MERMAID. There is a real live mermaid in the West minster aquarium, London, a specimen of the manatee having been recently received from Demerara. This is the little animal that has given rise to the prettiest legend of the sea, The glass tank in which it is plac ed is entirely above the level ot the floor, and the water, which is fresh, as the animal, though marine, often swims far up rivers, is kept very clear. The depth of water given to the acquarium specimen hardly allowed of its lull display in the mermaid position, as the tail ought to be able to get quite free from the bottom of the tank. One flipder slightly thrown up gives the tradi tional hand looking-glass, and the gentle paddling of the other when seen in clear water gives the hand holding the comb. The harp introduced in some drawings, however, does not exist. A similar speci men was received a few years ago at the zoological gardens, but could not he kept iaive, and only afforded a naturalis...
