R. N. SUTH.ERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 1876. LAST. week we mounted our cavio and started out tor a, short visit on the 'Missouri valley. -Never sifte one evening in Novem ber,14., .wJhen we caughti abi, 0, ye view of it from Sixteen Mile creek mountain did it look 'r .or' ;beautitill than ; t'this tine. Then, not a human habitation was in view, and indeed, but four existed. "Far away over the valley and 'table lands, like a field of golden grain, waved one vast sea of bunch grass, over wihch roamed unmolested herds of wild game. Now the valley, foot-hills and high plateaus are one vast 'green mnea ow. Here aiid there over the entire Valley, were bands of horses and cattle lhzily feast ing and fattening upon the rich repast which nature had spread out bWeore them. This magnificent valley whlh 'i6ly eleven years ago was unbroken by'` farrow,' now teemns with agricltural products of allktnds.

LIVE STOCK.. BRIDS OF CATTLL. We give below the pith of an article on this subject which appeared lately in the New York Timee, from the pen of Mr. Alex ander Hyde : Regarding cattle as machines, whereby to convert hay, gram, and roots into milk, meat ,nd power, the question recurs, what herd of cattle will furnish the best machin ery. The Jersey may make gilt-edge but ter, but Jersey beef would be costly in its manufacture, and-poor when made, and as for using Jersey oxen in plowing or hauling logs, we should as soon think of using a wind-mill in place of a locomotive on raid roads. The Durhams have a large, well-de veloped carcass and take on fat as naturally as woodchucks, but it does not follow that they are the best animals for milk or work. 'What breed is best for the farmer to pur Shase or propagate must therefore be deter mined mainly by the use to w.ich the cattle are to be put. The soil, climate, and other circumstances should also have their appro prlate influence. If bee...

THE HOME CIRCL E. BERO-WORSHIP. A Itttle maiden read her books, And only loved the more Sir Philip Sidney every day, Than even the day before. And1 when her suiters came to woo, She matched them in her mind With Philip Sidney, one and all, But far they fell behind. For this one lacked the courtliness, And this, the perfect grace, And this, the learning rare and wide, And this, the handsome face. And so she sent them all away, But only loved the more Sir Philip Sidney every day, Than she did the day before. Oh, maiden of the fancy bright, If it could only be, Sir Philip should himself o'erleap For you the centuries three, And come upon his doughty steed A-rlding to your gate, And for your favor crave and sue, And for your answer wait, I ween you'd look him through and through, But never bid him stay; In favor of his fancied self You'd send himself away. -Scribner for June.

DAIRY DEPARTIINT. A MOEft, DAIRY COW, And now Orange county, New York takes the creditof having afarnous cow. Accord ing to a correspondent of the Twrf, Field and Farm, one Samuel Marvin, living near Oxford Depot, hin said county, has in his herd of 35 one small cow, purchased out of a western drove, that gave last year, from Jan. 6, 1875, to Jan. 6, 1876, six tons eight hundred and eighty-two pounds of milk. Now, this makes 12,882 pounds of milk, which, if it had been converted into cheese at the rate of ten pounds of milk to one of cheese, would amount to 1,288 pounds, which, even at the low prle. of ten cents per pound, would come to $128.80. But if her milk had been.made into butter at the rate of 25 pounds of milk to one of butter, we should have over 515 pounds, amounting, at 30 cents per pound, to $154.50, besides all the skimmed milk. Cows like this are evi dently intended for "hard times," when dairy products fall to a low fgure, as the increased product more than makes up ...

.luk y I 1ntai Hllnusoanuan , RBN. SUTHI.RLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1876. THE Mixaas throughout the country are now under full headway, and there are very few; if any, idle men to be seen. This rush of business, however, can only last during the water season, which will close about the last of August. The great abundance of water this season enables the working of more gulch claims and bars than usual, and the yield from bar mines will be greater than for some years past. But in regard to the mines which are worked in the winter, we cannot say so much. Many of the claims which would have been worked, and paid fair wages to their owners for several years to come, h'ave caved in and been filled up by the spring flood, and since they only yielded wages, it will not pay to re-open them. The miner cannot afford to spend three or four months opening diggings which will only pay wages when opened. The result is that unless some move is made in the way of developing new mines, the com...

LIVE STOCKI LAWS OF BREEDING. In the human family, character is the re sult of action, surrounding influences direct ly affecting the mind and manner, and be coming a part of tile person so surrounded. According to Jrof. Huxley, "An idea, or mental lmpression,passing to the brain, pro duces a change in the molecular particles of the brain substances. The way thus being broken, subsequent impressions of the same kind are more easily transmitted." There is an economy shown in nature, by which faculties not brought into use-that is not developed-in time become extinct. Fish in the Mammoth cave have no eyes. Dr. Jo seph Thomas, speaking ofEgypt, says: "Of all the trades pursued in this country, the most remarkable is hatching of eggs by the artificial heat of ovens, a peculiarity of Egypt, handed down from ancient times. The poultry reared in this way are wholly without the, instincts which relate to the care of offspring ; the artatlcial. method of hatching,. therefore, when once resor...

"IT IS I." 3MATTuEW 14:27. The lone an.ttojling voyagers Whose bark was on the sea, When night hung dark above the wav'e Of stormy Galilee, In terror gazed ol w"hat.they.then But dimly could descry, Until they heard those cheering words: ' 'Fear not, for it is I.'' The dearest, truest friend on earth, In that dark hour of gloom, Seemed some pale phantom come to tell A dire and dreadful doom; And then from each afrighted lip There burst the trembling cry, That nought could still but those sweet words; "' Fear not, for it is I." 'Tis often thus with Yoyagers Across life's stormy main, Who strive to stem its rushing tide, Yet seem to strive in vain: The waves are white with spectral fears, 6 And darkly frowns the sky,. Till some sweet voice speaks softly out: " Fear not, for it is I."' Oh, ever thus, my sister dear, When life seems dark to thee; When clouds enwrap a starless sky, And storms are on the sea- In fearless faith and joyful hope To Christ lift up thine eye, And heed the gent...

TERRITORIAL NEWS. From the Avant Courier. The officers of the United States Land Of lice at Helena have received official notifica tdon that the N. P. R. R. Co., will relinquish their title to railroad lands in Montana which were filled upon by bonafide settlers between the time of the location of the lands and of the notification from the General Land Of ice. Col. J. A. Viall will act as agent for the railroad company. From the Helena Independent. Private letters received, state that the bal ance of Carroll has been washed away. The Ten Mile bridge on the overland road has been repaired, and trains are passing over it. I is reported that the Utah Northern railroad is only carrying thr~e mails a week from Ogden to Franklin, and in consequence there is three clays' interval in Montana mail.

THE POULTRY YARD. " SCALY LEGS." The unsightly affection known as " scaly legs," that so disfigure% fowls (and in the show room often prevents their winnig) need never be seen to any extent in the poutl try runs, if the disease is taken in hand sea sonably. It is quite easily cured in this incipient stage; and breeders should always b)e on the lookout for tlhi', as they should be for roup, drooping, cr other irregular condi tions which their fowls are imore or less lia ble to, from time to time. This is in character, parasitical also. The '" scales" are oceasioined by myriads of small insects, invisible to the nalked eye, but clear ly made out by the use of the microscope. They huddle in scales, or whitish-grey blotches, at first, upon the shanks of the lowls; and if not removed or destroyed ear ly, will increase very rapidly until theyform in wartish lumnps like the carbuncle on the neck of the turkey cock in, appearance, but of a hornier and rougher substanee, which terminates in ...

Rocky Mountainllusdadan. R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, JULY 6, 1876. ONE OF rrT most important things for our people to learn is that it always pays to produce the best. It matters not what a farmer may have to sell, he will always find a sure and ready market for a first-class article. If a man is dairying, lie should always strive to produce the best butter or cheese that is placed upon the market. If gaiJenmg, he should be sure to have the best varieties of vegetables. If in the poul try business, he should be sure to market his eggs when fresh, and never attempt to sell packed eggs for fresh ones. It will not pay to cheat customers; they are no doubt good judges of the articles they buy, and when once deceived are apt to remember you next time. A No. 1 article is always worth more in any market than a poor one, and although this is demonstrated before our eyes nearly every day, it is strange that there is such a quantity of inferior produce put upon the' market. Bqt some m...

LIVE STOCK. CLYDESDALE AND MORGAN HORSES. The oldest we have, of Oregon raising, of Clydesdale stock, are four years old this spring; and as far as I have seen, and what I can glean from those who have been rais ing this stock, and others not interested, in connection with the many sales made East, at enormous figures, I cannot help coming to the conclusion that there is no better farmer's horse than the Clydesdale; or one more suitable for heavy draft. An English writer in a recent article on Scotch and Eng lish farming, says of the Clydesdale horses: "Although Scotch farmers generally have something to learn from their English breth ren in the management of cattle and sheep, and require to improve considerable in the selection and style of their bucks and har ness horses, they stand almost unrivaled in the breeding and management of their cart horses." There is no better farmer's horse than the Clydesdale. He has the power in the right place; he can move off smartly with two tons ...
