Rocky Mounliltain llusan ma. R. N. SUTHIERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1876. .WE ARE happy to be able to state that there is a fair prospect for good crops next season. There are no deposits of grasshop per eggs in the Territory except in a small portion of upper Bitter. Root valley, and we have reason to believe that the deposit in that section is much lighter than it was in other valleys the past season, since the grass hoppers remained only a few days in that locality., The only fears entertained: now, are that the hordes which hatch out on the plains east of us may sweep dow4i on. us when our crops are jujst heading out., But the news fronr abroad, is most encouraging. The long-open fall has caused a large percentage of the eggs deposited in the States to the east of us to hatch out, and the war which is being inaugurated against them by the people of these States promises greatly to diminish the pests. From Colorado we also have flattering news. A recent issue of the Col...

ISlIELLANEIUI. THE BREAD PROBLEM. The Nam~in has its say oni this question of good bread, and wje are coustrained to think i very nchrly if not quite correct: The bread problemn is undoubtedly, so far as the American people are concerned,, the diost important which we have to solve. Dyspepsia Is qur national curse. It is itLe source of the greatest sufferings and the greatest weaknesses of the American people, aiid it is pretty ge(nerally conceded thati among the fiactors of our national disease none is so imp)ort talt n(d nonie so universal aW the bad quali!y of our national bread. The excessive using of tobacco, of coffee, of itim, and of whisky certainly has much to do with our enfeebledl digeetions, but all these together must sinlk into inui.rnifica:nce when teJmparcd with the vile character of what is kno(wn as bread in niletly-i lae-hundredths (fF the hounsehollds of our country--sour, Iheavy, sawdusty, ianuutritious, unpalatable uhflliýg, which pe)rformiis, of course, a cer ...

Rocky Mo0untain Husbanlman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THIIURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1876. '1'iiT MOST important subject for our con sideration is the equalization of taxation. It is not only eminently necessary that means should-be devised. by which a reasonably fair tax may be levied upon ores and bul lion, and.the capital invested in mines and mining, but there should be a more adequate method of reaching other property now tax able under the laws.. There is usually a • great cry set up abou-t the plundoring and saealing carried on by county officers, which may, for aught we know, be well grounded in some instances. But we would.ask the candid thinker to'pause andreflect. While thsis being done, we would ask, are not the people robbing.and stealing from them selves ? We are assured by, our best citizens that a fair and honest listing of the taxable property of Meagher county would reduce the preosent rate pf' 'a~atlona it least fifty per epnt. Many honpet. sti-alghtforward citi zeus,, w...

WHAT IS PURE BLOOD I The following remarks were made by President Welceh, of the Iowa Agricultural I College, at the recent Shorthorn breeders 1 convention , t While coming here to-day, I was thinking i of the important subject-how long shall t a thoroughbred animal be bred by crossing a with a scrub before becoming pure blood ? The Rnglish rule is, to cross four times with t the fertnle and five times with the male. 5 We tlke half-blood and cross with a pure- Y blood, and we have a quarter-blood, and at s the fifth cross we will have an animal that f has thirty-one parts pure-blood to "em part r scrub-that is, if we compute the crosses mathematically; but when we take into consideratlon the tact that the pure-blood aoalal is prepotent over the scrub, then the , annIul has but a minute portion of scrub blood. When a pure-blooded Shorthorn bull is crossed with a scrub cow, the result cannot be computed arthmethially, for the prepotence of the thoroughbred animal 1 over the scrub cont...

Sweet spirits that may not slumber; Cool shadows from lights now gone; And the e,hoes of voices sounding, All sounding for me alone; And, blending among the others, One echo is softer yet; One shadow is cooler, deeper; Aud my dimming eyes grow wet. For the image I gaze on longest Is the image that blessed mny youth; The angel that I l ny journey With h-r lamp of love and truth; We travelled lifm's way together A little while side by side; And, when Igrew faint or weary, That light was my strength and guide. ,Zad dearer it grew-how dearer!

Rock Monllillltain Du aaman. IR. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TIIURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1877. THERE' is one very important truth that our farmers must sooner or later learn in regard to raising stock. It is this, if they propose to let them, shift for themselves, they must drive them to the foot-hills and leave them, butif they propose to feed them through the winter, they must provide them with good comfortable shelter and plenty of feed. If stock are fed only half enough, they will stand around the corral and hump themselves up on the lee side of a fence-post and make no effort to feed upon the range, and consequently become very poor and not unfrequently die. Now it is necessary for every farmer to keep a few head of stock about the farm in winter. He needs a team, a saddle horse or two and a few milk cows for family use, but these should be well stabled and fed all they will eat. The stock that are not used will do vastly better in the hills on the bunch grass. But when we survey our farme...

LIVE STOCK. AYRSHIRE CATTLE. The Ayrshire is one of the four most pop alar breeds of cattle at present raised in this country or Europe. They are quite distinct from all others of what are termed the mid dle-horn breed, although evidently closely allied to them. Their origin is enveloped in obscurity, but it is known hItn the Ayr,"hirc. aa a distinct breed, cannot be traced back a century. For many years the Ayrshires were con sidered the best lactiferous breed in Great. Btbtain, and were exceedingly popular in Scotland, not only in Ayrshire but in Ren frewshire, Sterlingshire and the surrounding country.., The dairymen of the regions where this breed first made its appearance are said to have guarded them with jealous care and sedulously appropriated them to dairy purposes. Like all the more valuable butter breeds the Ayrshires are not s o prof itable for the shambles as the Shorthorns, although the beef is of good quality, pos ssing a fine admixture of fat and lean, still th.re ar...
