R. N. SUTHERjIN, Editor. TIUILSDAY, APRIL 5, 1877. OWLNG to the steady decline oft population which our Territory has experienced in the past few years. many of our best and most ,enterprising citizenl. appear discouraged and are half inclined to 11y the country. Thi: feeling is more now as the railroad excite mcnt. dies away, thltu it has been at any other time, an'd might p)Ioperly be termed it.s offspring. When we take a fair, impartial glance at the alfhirs of the country, they are no worse thi they have been heretofore; no worse th:an most other mining countries -undergo before an era of permanent great ne-s begins. Montana possesses all that is necessary to Imahe a rich and prosperous people, her resources are :nmply hdequate to supply all her wants. Besides a multiplicity of mines of gohl, silver, copper, iron, coal. etc., the soil is rich, 1nd )produces as many of the necessaries of life as in any other country ; her pastures are boundless, and her thousand broodnr rivulets ...

LIVE STOCK. PREPARING WOOL FOR MARKET. The Price Current says: We would call the attention of wool-growers to a few p)O'iits affecting interests of both seller and buyer. It is quite a common practice among sheep farmers to gather whatever may be on the shearing flooring--whole fleeces, blroken wool, tags and dung locks-and throw them all into the bale together. Now this is a thing that should be deprecated, for the buyer, on cutting open and examin ing the bales, is inclined to be rather preju diced against the lot of wool on account of the broken wool and tags and locks being mixed with the whole fleeces. It should be generally understood that wool in merchant able condition implies wool in whole fleeces only, and everything else is subject to re jection by the buyer when the wool is grad ed. Also that only the proper proportion of buck's fleeces is admissible, say at most, one to every fifty, and all over that are sub ject to rejection, and will be rated at half price or less. In...

PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY.' GRANGE MERCHANDISING. In the last issue of the If Ii sMinAr.N" an article appears with thel above heading.t, cop ied from the Miad.sonian. 'Permit me to say that I think the Madisonitc, exposes a lack of understanding, as to the objects of our order and the advantages to the IarmerI of a well ordered co-olperative mne:ýtn:e. I do not claim to be highly versed in the lawv of commercial economy, but I do claim that we have the inalienable right, either as in dlividuals or as a fraternity, to the pursuit of wealth and happiness, as long as it is legiti mate, whether we live in wealthier cornunu nities, or a Territory sparely settled, such as ours; neither can I see how the c(,1 tinuance of "seven-tenths of the farm'er's class" in a cumbersome indebtedness to the "merchant's class," is going to "develop our resources." It does not savor of a pure ly democratic idea to advocate the sentiment that an indebtedness, whether light or o9 pressive, is a blessing of any d...

MISCELLANEOUS. A ne.MAlKA.AII clock, or time globe, has been invented, which, accorºdiunr to the dtes cription given in the Jeweler, exhibits the time, longitude anlid latitiwle of any place in the world, as well as the diflierence of the same between two or more lj1,au's. The dte vice consists of a globe, on which is a conm plete map of the world. A large dial encir cles the globe at its equator, at which the time of the various imeridianl is indi:ated. At the north pole is a smaller dial, which shows the mean time at thie p1)lce'where the globe is located. The remarkable feature of this device, however. is the fact that, by the mechanism inside of it, this miniiiiature globe actually revolves, as does the earth, once in every twenty-four hours. The actual time at any part of the world can be easily and quickly ascert'ained by reference to the large dial encircling the globe at the equator. It has a sliding vernier, divided into 300 de grees, by means of which the latitude of lo ca...

Rocky Maontain hisbanlman. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TIIUISI)DAY, AP'LL 12, 1877. WE hear and read a great deal about the dull monotony of a farmer's life, of the humdrum existence, etc., but we do not see why it should be any more monotonous or humdrum than any other industrial pursuit. The idea is a false one. The thrifty, ener getic farmer does not lead a dreary life. Some farmers, we admit, do, but it is their own fault. There is in the broad field of nature with which they are associated more than he can learn in one life time. The study of the soil, of plant and vegetable growth, of breeding and improving stock, of produc ing new breeds, etc., is not so easily master ed that It need become monotonous. No one has yet been through the book and turn ed back to review it. There need be no rep itition; the course is onward. The reason farm life is so unattractive is because we make it so. It should be a de lightful pastime, or we may allow it to be come a drudge. If we would make it...

LIVE STOCK. BREEDS THAT MATURE EARLY. 'i'h' stock-gro-wer wa:ts breeds that man ture euarly. If lie can save a year in the growth of a steer and gets no greater weight, he can calculate by having the ear ly maturing breed, he has saved or made 33A ?ier cent. IEvery practical stock-grower who has raised scrubs and Shorthorns has learned that the Shorthorn at two years of age. properly kept, weighs more and. is in better order than the scrub at three years of age. A whole year has been saved in keep isg. The use of the money lie would sell for has been had for one year, and the mo n ey turned over in another steer and fed a year properly, would bring near one hun dred per cent. While raising common or scrub stock mauy prove inmremunerative to the farmer, yet the raising of a breed that grows rapidly, fattens readily and matures early, will prove highly profitable. We know that many farmers are incredu lous about the advantages of improved stock in reference to their early iwituring qu...

PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY. WHAT MAKES A PROSPEROUS GRANGE. It is now nearly ten years since the first grange was organized. During the first few years the order grew but slowly, 'was little known, and met with the opposition with which all reforms, all new improvements or inventions always have been received. Still it survived its days of trial, and within the past five years it has become an acknowl edge fact, one of the institutions of our country, and has far outstripped the bright est hopes and dreams of those who founded it, until to-day, in nearly twenty-live thou sand neighborhoods, have the farmers come out from their isolation, and under the fra ternal ties of the mystic grange or bonded together in our order, existing and working harmonious and alike, whether among the bills and valleys of the Fastern and Middle States, the pines and orange groves of the South, in the prairies of the West, or the acltfic slope of our great continent, all in one mighty brotherhood.

LIVE STOCK. L_---r- - ----------- - SPECIALITY IN BREEDING. Many young farmers when they start out as breeders make a great mistake by under standing too much. They think they must burst forth upon the world full grown, like Minerva from the brain of Jupiter. They are not willing to wait and grow up by de grees, as all things in nature grow, but make large preparations, go to great ex pense, run in debt, and lacking experience and reputation, which is a plant of slow growth, do not meet the exalted expecta tions with which they started, become dis couraged, and finally perhaps quit the busi ness. But one of the most serious blunders that inexperienced breeders commit is to start with too many breeds or varieties or kinds of stock. While a man may be successful with Shorthorns, or Jerseys, or Ilolsteins, or Devons, or Ilerefords, or with Merinos, or Cotswolds, or Southdowns, or Berkshires, or Poland-Chinas, or Essex, or trotting horses, or thoroughbred horses-yet if he undertakes to ...
