THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. MONTANA'S SARATOGA. White Sulphur Springs is one of the few Montana towns that is having a rapid growth this unpropitious year. A RIVER PRESS representative made his annual call on friends at the Saratoga last week and was not a little surprised at its rapid growth the past twelve month. It had improved almost beyond recognition, but few of the old land marks remaining to remind one of the village of a year or two ago, while new and handsome structure3 are to be seen on every hand. The most marked change, perhaps, Is in the property owned by the White Sulphur Springs association. The old and unsightly log hotel has been trans formed into a neat and commodious structure, where guests are made com fortable and contented. The log shacks that passed for bath houses have been torn away and in their place a fine brick bath house has been erected, where one can get a "scald" with all the comfort there...

STOCK DEPARTMEINT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] The West for Stock-Breeding. Colorado Farmer : It needs but little experience in the breeding of stock here in Colorado to become fully cognizant of the fact that no other part of the country has superior advantages in this respect, if as good. Sagacious cattle men rarely tail in their endeavors for success, and there is no apparent reason why they should. The western states have developed a superior grass country, and stock and grass in this day and age will make any country prosperous if the ing proved breeds of stock are bred. With the best stock country on earth and the most and hest stock, the west leads the world in stock-breeding, and this im proved stock-breeding is not only more profitable, but it gives more dignity, influence and importance to farming, and makes the farm more inviting to the merchant, manufacturer, or capitalist, as well as more attractive and popular for the ...
