I pledge you true, my lady fair, Where'er mayh. p I be He kissed her on her blue-black hair And brow so tenderly. Then, tossing back the silver cup Unto the little page, He grasped his steed, and mounting up, He prayed her for a gage. "But this I have, my own dear lord;" (She bared her lily hand). He bound the glove to his trusty sword, And rode forth with his band. The Lady Blanche, with nimble feet flas gain, d the donjons height; And there she stood, so young and sweet, A truly joyous sight. The knight rode east, but she looked west; He turned to his lady fair, And waved a kiss from the far hill-crest But she gazed otherwhere. And. when her lord was hid from view, She stirred not from her post; The sun was clothed in crimson hue, The wind blew from the coast, Before she slowly dropped the hand That shaded her dark eyes, In which the tear drops glistening stand, Responsive to her sighs. ...

Writen for the HOLIDAY RIVER PREsS. CHAl GE, BY JOHN W. EDDY. The summer dropped its blush-blown roses On my head, Till its close; And then went down the vale which closes Where the dead Years repose. Now winter comes, the roses quickly From my head Fade and go: I find upon me falling thickly In their stead, Only'sno w. When youth" was mine its fiery flushes In me rose, Fresh and bright As raddy morning's fairest blushes, When she throws Back the night. But age relentleselly bereaves me Of the things I loved best; In what youth promised age deceives me,, Still it brings Love and rest. Wild waves must on the storm-rocked ocean R;se and leap, But we're sure 'Tis by the waters' ceaEeles' motion That they keep Sweet and pure. What though the heart be oft distracted O'er bright things Turned to dust; The stormy sorrow so exacted Ever brings Sweeter trust. So change has often brought me sadness; By-and-by, From life's west, A final change shall bring me gladness, When I lie Down to rdSt. ...

Written for the HOLIDAY RIVER PRESS. OUR CATTLE INTERESTS. Introduction of the Bovine Race into America. Adaptability of this Territory for Breeding Cattle on a Gi gantio Scale. Improvements in the Present System Suggested. The Chief Danger to which the Business is Exposed.--The Probable Future of the Industry. BY M. E. MILNEB. The genus Bos, as a domesticated animal, has in all ages been the useful companion of man. They were always esteemed articles of wealth and sources of prosperity. The ancients had such a high esteem for them that among some nations they were an object of worship, which doubtless originated in a devout appreciation of their admirable qual ities. The genus is not indigenous to this continent, but was first introduced into Mex ico by the Spaniards, in the sixteenth century. In that mild climate they increased rapidly, and are the origin of the great Texan herds of the present day. The English, Dutch and other colonists of the Eastern coast brought cattle of thei...

Written for TY- RIVER PRss. THEN AEND NOW. BY JON W. HANA.Y. I sought a maiden to be mine, Ere hawthorne buds were filling- I found her in the glad Maytime When all the birds were billing. I wooed her through the summer days. Bow sweetly smelled the heather, As 'neath the sun's bright, ardent rays, We lovers strolled together. We wedded, when ripe autumn's hand Was heaped with apples,mellow, I bore her home, when all the land Was decked in brown and yellow. Yet, now that winter's icy blast Around the house is sweeping, I sit alone-and, from the past, Sad shadows come a-creeping. Written for the fOLIoAY RIVER PRESS. BENTON PUBLIO SCHOOL. BY E. R. CLINGAN. "We must educate, or we must perish." How full of significance are these few words spoken by one of the most brilliant statesmen and orators that our young Republic has ever produced. These words were not spoken for the benefit of any small schooldistrict, county, or even a state by this eminent man but he makes it in his valuable o...

THE RIVER PRESS; Wednesday, December 28, 1881. JERRY COLLINS,-- --- EDITOR THE HOLIDAY *'RIVER PRESS.' We present to our readers this week a pa per devoted almost entirely to the interests -of Benton and the country tributary-our first holiday number. Owing to the fact that the work of "preparation was not begun' until a late day, much has been omitted that should properly have a place in these column, or in any paper designed to exhibit the resources of Choteau county. We have not sought -to give ita literary character, or the usual em; bellishments of holiday papers, the object being simply to present in a plain,, forcible way the resources of our town and county, and the advantages here offered to imrnigra tion. We believe we have succeeded to this extent. Our contributors, for the most part, are gentlemen of practical experience in the departments assigned to themn, and their statements can be relied upodnas true.

THE BARKER BOUNANZAS. Discovery ahd Progress of this 1 Rich Mining District. An Inviting Field for Capital and Labor. Where the Barker District is and How to Get to It. It is estimated that during the "past fiscal year Montana has produced $2,500,000 in silver, and the yield of this precious metal in the Territory is constantly increasing. The prospector is still abroad in the land, seeking new fields of labor, and not unfrequently his efforts are rewarded ; his trials and pri vation requited by a "rich strike." Of the recent mineral discoveries in the Territory none are more important, or of brighter promise, than thqse in the now famous Bar ker district-and ere long they will contrib ute in no small measure to swell Montana's output of silver. WHERE 1T IS. The Barker district is located in the Belt range of mountains, south of Benton about sixty miles, in the northern part of Meagher county. For a distance of several miles along the range important mineral discover ies have been m...

THE MYSTERIOUS CAVERN A Subterranean Chamber in, the Judith Mountains. What Catne from a Draught from an En chanted Spring. A Look into the Future Vouchsafed to one of Earth's Inhabitants. BY JES. . In the summer of 1881, when the quartz mining interests in Northeastern Montana had received fresh impetus by the develop ments in the Barker district, and the reports of new, discoveries in other quarters, a party of, whom I was one outfitted at Fort Benton for a.pryspecting trip in- the ,Judith moun tains. Crossing the river on the Lynch & Flint ferry, the close of the fourth day saw us in camp among. the rugged hills of the Judith range. The next day three of us- Bill Parker, Frank Seymour and myself started out to look for indications. It was my first prospecting trip, and to tell the truth, the grand. sights which the eleva tion afforded were'of;more interest to a lover of nature like myself than quartz, and in endeavoring to reach a point from which I thought I could, perhaps, ...

IF WE KNEW. It we knew the cares and crosses Crowding round our neighbor's way, If we knew the little losses, Sorely grievous, day by day, Would we then so pften chide him For his lack of thrift and gain, Leaving on his heart a shadow, Leaving on our life a stain ? If We knew the clouds above us, Held by gentle blessines there, Would we turn away, all trembling, In our blind and weak despair ? Would we shrink from little shadows Lying on the dewy grass While 'tis only birds of Eden, Just in mercy flying past ? If we knew the silent story Quivering through the hearts of pain, Would our manhood care to doom them Back to haunts of guilt again ? Life hath many a tangled crossing, Joy hath many a break of woe, And the cheek tear-stained is whitest This the blessed angels know. Let us reach into our bosoms For the key to others' lives, And with love toward erring nature Cherish good that still survives; So that, when our disrobed spirits Soar to realms of hght again, We may say, "Dear Fat...

THE WEDDING FEE. One morning, fifty years ago, When apple trees were white with snow Of fragrant blossoms, and the air Was spell-bound with the perfume rare Upon a farm horse, large and lean, And lazy, with its double load, A sun-brown youth and maid were seen Jogging along the winding road. Blue were the arches of the skies, But bluer were that maiden'se yes ! The dew.drops.on the grass were bright, But brighter was the loving light ' That sparkled 'neath each long-fringed lid Where those bright eyes of blue were hid Adown the shoulders, brown and bare, Rolled the soft waves of golden hair, Where, almost strangled with the spray, The sun, a willing sufferer, lay. It was the fairest sight, I ween, That the young man had ever seen; And with his features all agow, The happy fellow told her so. And she, without the least surprise, Looked on him with those heavenly eyes Saw underneath that shade of tan The handsome features of a man; And with a joy but rarely known She drew that dear fa...

THE JEANNETTE. Her Departure' from ban Franeiseo Tidings that were bent Back. The Jeannette was sent to find the north pole, and to reach it, if possible, by way of Behring's Straits, a route pursued by no other Arctic exploring expedition. North of Behring's Straits is a part of the Arctic Ocean known as Bebring's Sea, into which projects a tongue of land variously known as Wrangell Land and Kellett Land. As part of the plans the Jeannette was to endeavor to discover whether this land is the southern end of a polar continent, or is merely a larger island than those that are. encountered on the way to its shores. If Wrangell Land proved to be but an island, the Jeannette's search in water was to progress beyond and around it. There are three routes which 'have been taken by those endeavoring to reach the north pole-the Spitzbergen route being the one approved by most of the English ex plorers, the Smith's Sound route on this side of Greenland, and the hitherto untried route through ...
