PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. PAY AS YOU GO. It is n onsense to talk of running co-oper ative stores on the credit system. The se cret of the success of the grange co-oparative stores is, that cash was ,paid for everything that was ,bought. If people .could only buy for cash, it would be a great bles 4ing. It would maake men and women more saving. ,They would then take eare to lay in the necessaries oflife, and let the l~.1ur ies alone until they could. iflord to have them. Of ,course there are cases where credit may be necessary, as in cases of sick ness or misfortune-but we speak of credit as generally indulged in by all :classes. It is a most baneful system, bringing a great train of troubles with it. Let everyone try to dispense with credit, and adopt the cash or barter system. "Pay as you go" is the true system of business.-Rural World. FOR THE FARMER AND PATRON.

S THI great problem now at hand for the people of Montana to. solve is, what is to be 3 her destiny, what is there, awaiting, what lies veiled in the closely shrouded, unborn t future? Do we see her rise to wealth and influence, or must we plod on in the weary old way, growing less by degrees as time t bears us on? Ten years ago we drew bright pictures of, what the next decade had in store. We saw, in our mind's eye, our rich valleys crowded with farmers, our high pla teaus, rollipg prairies and extended plains covered with flocks of sheep and herds or horses and cattle. WVe heard the din and clank of factories where the.wild cataract plunges; saw bustling villages, large reduc tion works, peeping opt from among our mountains; heard the shrill whiltle of the magic messenger of prosperity echoing through our hills, as great blue lines of smoke rolled back over long trains hurrying away with the rich pr...

PATRONS OY HUSBANDRY. f GRANGER MERCHANDISING. Ic EDITOR IIUSBANDMAN: The .ladisonian P of the 15th, says: "The Secretary of the r Territorial Grange of Montana, in a com- 4 munication to the ROCKY MOUNTAIN )IUS- b BAN.DMAN of March 8th, advises the expedi- f' ency of organizing a Central Orange Depot. e Without doubting the sincerity ot the wor thy secretary, or questioning his motives, f( we must say that his article and recommen- c dations expose a lack of understanding as s to the laws which govern commerce, and o an equal lack as to what would be the re- a sult of the practical working oftt&ie plan he s suggests. In larger and wealthier cornmu- r nities such a plan might succeed, and prove e beneficial to its members; but in a large i Territory, sparsely settled, such as ours, it t could not do otherwise than work a hard- r ship on those who engaged in it, and prove an utter failure in the end.

PATRONS OF HUSBANDBRY. FROM THE MASTER OF THE MISSOURI STATE GRA NGE. The rapid growth, and unparalleled suc cc-s of the Patrons of Husbandry has been closely watched by all classes, and has cre ated a deep interest in the minds of the Amer lean people. During the first few years of our organi zation it was supposed by many opposing us, that our existence would be of short du ration, that we might spring up like Jonah's gourd and thrive tor a season, and then with er and die. It was predicted that the farmers would not, and could not, keep up an organ ization of their own. This was intimating that we did not know enough, nor care enough about our own interest to exert our selves to keep up an organization, however much it might he to our advantage. It had long been evident, to all earnest thinkers that the farmer, of all classes, was the most cruelly oppressed; and many of them were ready to unite their efforts with others in any laudable enterprise that would bring relief and eleva...

IMISCELLANEOUS. THE present extensive adulteration of woollen and cotton fabrics forms the subject of a valuable series of articles in one of the Enghsh technical journals, from which it appears, among other facts presented, that a mixed fabric of cotton and woollen may be most reliably tested by boiling in a solution of caustic soda, made by dissolving one part of solid caustic in ten parts of water. By continued boiling the woollen is dissolved, while the cotton is unacted upon.. A com parison of the remaniing cotton with the original weight of the cloth will show the percentage of cotton present. It is, how ever, a mistake to suppose that the mixed ftbric is of necessity less durable than one of wool alone. In fact, many "shoddy" cloths, such as the "tweeds," etc., are really held together by the sort of short and broken woolly fibre employed in their manufacture, a statement easily proved by simply unrav elling a piece of the ordinary tweed, the warp being generally of cotton an...
