THE HOIlE IRC LE. THE COUNTRY HOMlES. The grand reserves of human kind Are garrisoned in rural homes, And always thence when bugles wind Their stalwart force in vigor comes. 1ices are abroad, and (iups and urn In sweet eurrender lend their lives, And Ildll and forest flowers will turn To honey in the human hives, Tbhe fashions of the distant town Are blown like pollen from the flowers Or borne by clouds that rain them down, In strange, liism:atic, ceaseless showers. But what are we, that we should say The oriole must dress in gray ? Bome mcen are milliners at hCeat, A nd should have learned the dainty art. They made one while a shilrp complaint liec:uae, they said, ''the ladies paint,'' When ofientimes these critic's noses VWere tinged with something-but not roses Somnet inume their skirts wore wondrous long Sometimes as witty as a sonnet, And then some fellow m.lde a song About : microscopic bonnet. And now those skirts are in retreat That used to hide the ladies' feet As if they b...

MINES AND MINING. QUICKSILVER-HOW IT IS MADE. Few of our readers probably have any idea where quicksilver came from or liow -t is made, but the following very excellent letter from a correspondent of the American Groccr throws much light upon the subject: California, in addition to bcling the largest producer of silver and gold in the world, al has the richest quicksilver mines, and the name "New Ahnaden " has become synon ymous with quicksilver all over the world. Having the good fortune to meet Mr. J. B. Itandall, the Superintendent of the compa ny, we were favored with an invitation to visit "New Almaden " and see how this vol atile and interesting metal is produced ; and taking the cars one afternoon, a ride of fifty miles, by the Southern Pacific Railroad, brought us to San: Jose, which is the nearest point on the railroad to the mines. San Jose itself is a thriving little city of ten to twelve thousand inhabitants, situated in the charming Santa Clara valley, which is the gard...

Iocky lountain Husbanlman, .R . N. SUT 11RLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1878. tl.&fd are but few branches of industry to our Territory that have prospered like its lIye-stock interests. The farmer has flour bhed for season, but few abundant harvests bave followed each other in succession. The ranaries of the country have scarcely. been '$.ed, ere the devouring grasshoppers have dtt off the supply. And he who has made money one year, has paid it out in the next $i hired help, whose labors the inevitable 'loppers have set at naught. The miner has had average good fortune, btt mining, at best, is fickle and uncertain. J'w but are, at sometime successful, yet in the end, only a small percentage make more Stan a good living, and it is safe to say that do miners of Montana have not been an ex cPtion to this rule. There is no class of men who have kept ,poe with those who have given their atten tlon to cattle, and at the present time we can scarcely name a more lucrative and proft...

LIVE STOCK. :lCENTENNIAL LIVE-STOCK EXHIBITION. A boiorespondent of the Rural New Yorker give the following interesting account of the etdck exhibition at the Centennial: if the recent Horse Show, held under the d.splces of the Centennial Commissiqn, was not, in extent and quality, what it should have been--to worthily represent the equine family of the United States of America such cannotjustly be said of the cattle show now in progress on the LiveStock grounds of the Centennial exhibition. Not only does Oanada compete-and she does so, highly to her credit-but England has sent across the ocean some of her most choice herds. The quality of the animals now under re ti#w is wonderfully good for so numerous a collection, being just 460 head, according t6 t'officla!-catalogue. The. various herds comprise English, American and Canadian Shorthorns. home bred and imported herds from the Channel Islands, Herefords, Devons, Black-nosed and Sheeted Ayrshires, Holsteins and Galloways, so-calle...

iTHE HOMIIE CIRCLE. WVAIT(NG. Grand is the leisure of the earth: She gives her happy myriads birth, And after harvest fears not dearth, But goes to sleep in snow-wreaths dim. Dread is the leisure up above. The while He sits whose name is Love, And waits as Noah did, for the dove, To wit if she would fly to him. ITo waits for us, while, houseless things, We beat about with bruised wings On the dark floods and water-springs, The ruined world, the desolate sea; With open windows from the prime, All night, all day, he waits sublime, Until the fullness of the time Decreed from his eternity. LUCK. ", Custer's luck !" was the exulting cry of the gallant trooper, as he plunged into the Indian camp where he perished with his men. " Custer's slaughter " is what histo ry will call the flight, ann perhaps the spot as well. There was scant luck, good or bad, in the bloody drama. The events marched like the steps of a mathematical problem. We loosely abscribe to "' luck" occurrences that may be o...

T., in its re cent ression at Ielena, having under consid eration the avalncClCment of the Temperance Cause in Montana, determined upon em ploying a lecturer to deliver a series of Trlemperance lectures in the Tcrritory.

THE POULTRY YARD. OULL OUT YOUR STOCK. Al. the early hatching broods are now irge enough to enable the breeder to tell with tolerable precision which birds will -vwer be suitable for the breeding pen. The best use of such is the gridiron or pot, and the earlier it is done after arriving A eatable age the more economical it is. And good fattening Is a desirable adjunct ! this time. If the culls are to be mar ki ed the smaller these fattening pens are lsibetter. If to be killed for family use as ceeded they ought to have an out door run hrbtie fock, and be penned up in a dark Trop for ten days or more before killing.

RkI J Uinntailln Hlusanilman. R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1876. THis is an age of progression. Tile course ofthe American people is onward. From the days when the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plytnouth Rock, the Cavaliers at James town, and the HIugenots on the Carolinas, the soul of a great people, inspired by am bition, has pressed them forward with rapid stride to the accomplishment of mighty deeds. The dismal wilderness vanished be fore them like mist from the rising sun, the bQumdless plains have become their happy hpnme, the barren dessert found to be nutri tious pasture, and the w"ildest dell of the mountains has been made to ring with the cheerful song of the husbandman. The great continent Is grid-Ironed with railroads. The broad Mississippi Valley is a perfect net-work of iron bands and still pressing on ward,,a number are halting at the foot of the ..ocky Mountains, with a connecting link binding them to the Golden States of the Pacific.

THE IMPOETANCE OF JEDUCATING EO1HSES. We commend the following article by A. T. Mapip, in the Maine Farmer, to those who have the responsibility of "bringing uip" young people or young horses.

A farmer baviig paid the price complfained to the professional that " the steers were not halt broke. he could not do anything with them." The reply was, "the steers are all right. and for five dpllars more I will break you so that you can drive oxen."

TEMPERANCE NOTES. - I. O. of G. T.

Upon ti(is subject, Bro. G. A Douglass, ot Boulder ,Str Lodge, made some pointed remarks. While he felt favorable toward the employ mlent of a lecturer, he hoped and believed a ,cries of lectures delivered in the Territory, would avail much in strengthening and buiilding up the Temperance cause ; he hoped the Grand Lodge would be more careful and exercise better judgment than had been done heretofore. He reviewed thre past, summed up the work of other lecturers, and the hundreds of dollars paid them, for which we got no value received; and remarked that if a better result cannot be had than had been, it would be best to keep our ,nl0iey. The evening session was devoted to the installation of the officers ...
