There will be 50,000 head of additional cattle on our ranges within twelve months after the passage of the reserva tion bill. From Mr. T. F. Morgan we learn that stock of all kinds are doing well in the Judith. The extreme cold weather has had the effect of reducing animals in flesh, but during the past week or two they have commenced to pick up again. Col. J. H. Rice and family, are ex pected in Benton early in March. We learn that the Colonel has recently made quite extensive cattle purchases on the Shonkin range. The Indians arrested for stealing horses belonging to Malcolm Morrow Jr., were brought before judge Spencer this miorning.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. RAILROAD BUMBLEB. Active steps are being taken by lead ing citizens of Bozeman and Butte to secure the construction of a railroad be tween these cities, and the outlook for the project is very favorable. The coun ties of Silver Bow and Gallatin propose to lend their credit, and this, with lib eral subscriptions to the stock of the company (to be entirely a local one) by prominent mining operators at Butte, is almost an assurance of the success of the scheme. We learned, while at the capital, the details of the project; that is, how it is proposed to proceed to build 110 miles of railroad, and equip the same, by a pure ly local company, without aid from the outside, only so far as it may be neces sary to borrow money upon security the company has to offer-the road bed, etc. -and at the same time to do this with out adding to the burden of the tax pay ers of the two counties interested. The schem...

The Lenten Season. The lenten season, which commenced on the 1Sth, is the fasting time before Easter, which' is observed in the Roman, and in the Greek and other oriental churches. It is certainly very ancient, if it be not even a primitive institution. The forty days' period, as commemora tive of our Lord's forty days fast, or the similar perfunctory fasts of Moses and Elias, commences with Ash-Wednesday between which day and Easter Sunday, (omitting the Sundays on which the fast is not observed) forty clear days in tervene. In the Greeklchurch the ante paschal is of forty-eight days, but it is only one of four similar fasting periods observed in that church. In the Angli can church, Lent is retained a church season of the. calendar, with special service, proper collects and prayers; but the observance of the fast is left to the discretion of each individual.

STOCK DEPARTMENT. [Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] l MONTANA WOOL. O. G. Cooper and the Chicago Wool Jour nal have Something to Say About it. O. G. Cooper, from Choteau, Montana, writes us under date of Feb. 2d that the sheep in his section are wintering remarkably well, as they were in fine condition when the winter set in. He thinks the increase will be less than usual on account of the cold weather during the breeding season, but says if that moderate weather continues until spring they will have a fine crop of wool, and predicts that in a few years Montana will come to the front with as fine a lot of wool as any country on the globe. He says that all that is lacking is C( better care of the sheep in winter, so tl they do not get a back-set and retard the al growth of the wool, and that the la time will come when the sheep will be 0' kept in smaller flocks, and when it is E cold in winter they .wi:l be ted.

STOCK DEPARTMENT. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] STOCK NOTES. Mr. Morton Frewen says, in the Lon don (Eng.) Telegraph: "Mr. Kohrs, of Deer Lodge, in Montana, has thelargest herd of Bate's Shorthorns in the world.". The "cattle trail," which started out with such a boom at St. Louis in No vember last, has scarcely enough left of it to make a respectable ghost. The measure was both impracticable and a mammoth steal, and its failure is cause for sincere thankfulness. Col. Leaming's fine thouroughbred Jersey, "Lady Belle", gave birth yes terday to a heifer calf sired by George Moore's celebrated thoroughbred bull "Highland Chief". The calf is a daisy, and is probably the finest specimen of Jersey stock ever seen in Fort Benton. George D. Patterson says the losses among his sheep during the past winter will not exceed two per cent. Out of one of his bands of 1.640 sheep only six have died during the winter.
