MONTANA MITES, [Avant Courier.] A movement is on foot for the formation of a stock association for Eastern Montana. Object, mutual protection and improvement of cattle. Mesirs. Fitzpatrick and Neasey, who re cently drove into the Territory from Califor nia about 4,000 head of sheep, have located at Big Timber, this county. They have made an excellent location for their business. The driver of the outgoing Tongue River stang was compelled to abandon his team and sleigh on the divide, one night last week, and foot it to Hoppey's Station.

COMb1ERCIAL AGRICULTURE. Somethilng NecessHry to the Farmer who Would be Successfrul. In order to attain a high degree of excel lence in agriculture, writes Alexander Hyde in Country Gentleman, it is not sufficient to know how to raise good crops, to herd good stock and make good beef and butter. Skill ful production is one thing, skill in buying and selling is quite another thing, and it is for the want of this commercial skill that so many farmers just scrub along and make the ends meet, but never have a good bank ac count. The great majority are satisfied if the sales of their products are sufficient to furnish groceries, dry goods and other sup plies for their families, and leave a balance to pay taxes. This is smply saying that most farmers, while they are industrious workers, faithful to their families, and good, honest men, are deficient as merchants. They do not study the markets, and consequently do not buy and sell to the best advantage. They are proverbially poor accounta...

FLOATING FANCIES. Love in a cottage beats jealousy in a brown stone front. Old maids are described as "embers from which the sparks have fled." "Go away, you naugh'y boy," said the cook to young Gaston, who was trying to kiss her, "your father is jealous." In a bar room dispute it appears to be ne cessary for one to make a blackguard of himself to prove that he is a gentleman. Denis Flynn, an ex-policeman of Buffalo, is ainxiouslY Eought for but cannot be found. !)enis evidt;ety thinks he is still on the force.

ONLY ! In the twilight, in the gloaming Of November's thirteenth day, Lies my open desk before me: What I muse on, who shall say ? Here are stored my choicest treasures- Stored for many a weary year! Desk! old silent friend, I love thee, Witness mute of many a tear ! Only a blue knot of ribbon, Dropped from a fair woman's hair ! Only a poor withered flower, Faded lie, enshrined there ! Only one lock, long and golden, Cut from oft a sunny head! Only letters, sere and yellow, Traced by fingers white and dead! Well!-I close thee. God be praised! Bitter memories last not aye ! Time, to tenderness oft mellows Saddest thoughts of days gone by. A MASSAORE OF MYTHS. Departure Into the Realms of Fable of Old Historical Beliefs. [The American.] This is peculiarly an age of disillusion and of unbelief.

FASHION, FRIPPERY AND FOLLY. Little Mabel Morton Gliding o'er the ice Says unto her lover, '"It is just too nice." Twenty minutes later Birdie starts for home, Busted is her bustle And her tortoise comb. Little curls in the nape of the neck are fashionable. Olive is the rare shade to find in plush, as in hose or gloves. Wide velvet collars bordered with fur are very stylishly worn. "Gathered waists are still very much in favor with young ladies." There are with the young gentlemen also. Gently the stars their beamlets fair dropped down; and as he chewed her dolman fringe, the gate fell in and lost its leather hinge. She-"Mr. Slow, are those two men that have just passed brothers ?" He--'I- aw know that one of them is; but I'm-aw not quite sure of the other." Lulu Veling, age 12, is Potteville's prodigy. She plays the piano so well that her friends go into ecstasies with delight and even Wil helmj and Rummel writes letters of praise. A slight misunderstanding: "Do you ever 'wink, Mis...

MONTANA MITES. [Avant Courier.] John Engesser was thrown from his sleigh, between town and Fort Ellis, last Friday, and sustained serious injuries. He was seated on a box in the sleigh, driving his team, when the front bob dropped suddenly into a deep rut or chuck-hole, throwing him violently to the ground between the sleigh and horses. After recovering somewhat from the shock he at tempted to walk to the Post, but found that one of his legs refused to perform its usual service. He than managed to crawl into his ,leigh and drive on to the Fort. On arriving at Ellis, he ascertained that one of his legs was broken in two places. On the facts being made known to General Alexander, he ' ordered the ambulance and had Mr. Engesser conveyed, as comfortable as possible, to town. He is now at the Laclede Hotel, and, after receiving proper surgical attention, is doing as well as could be expected under the painful circumstances.

ON THE STAIR. A rare, sweet smile lit up her perfect face, And wreathed the scarlet of her tender mouth; Her warm breath swept across my cheek, Like winds upstealing from the fragrant South. The sweet good-by still trembled on her lips, All warm with kis3es I'd been leaving there; As I looked backward from the silent street, She stood above me, on the ivyed stair. The moon, within the great, unsleepinu blue, Smiled out, and all the east was pale with dawn, Ah, love, I had not thought 'twas half so late, Where had those hours in dreamtul swiftness gone I'd tarried long, so loth to say farewell For even one short week-an age of woe; So loth to kiss those pleading lips good night, And she was sad, dear heart, to have me go. And, as I saw her there beneath the vine, Sweet smiling down upon me from the stair, I'll always keep ner picture in my heait Her eyes love-bright, and moonlight on her hair. And when this weary, waiting we, k is dead, And all these exiled hours are changed to light...

AFTER THE RAIN. The rain has ceased, and in my room The sunshine pours an airy flood; And on the church's dizzy vane The ancient cross is bathed in blood. From out the dripping ivy leaves, Aniiquely carven, gray and high. A dormer, facing westward, looks Upon the village, like an eye. And now it glimmers in the sum, A globe of gold ; a disk, a speck ; And in the belfry sits a dove. With purple ripples on her neck. THE SITUATION IN .THE EAST. Agitation Among the Small Fish of the Orient as to Which Shall First be Eaten by Their Voracious Neighbors. The European Concert has been much more of a success than Mr. Gladstone's enemies hoped and his friends feared. By concentrat ing the whole moral influenceof Europe upon a tiny fragment of the Eastern question, it has forced the cession of Dulcigno to Czerna gora, and has left that little Republic to try issues with the Albanian Confederacy as to their continance in possession. But with that their joint labors have ceased. Although the Ber...

FLOATING FANCIES. Apple dumtlings from the pot, Just a dozen, steaming hot; And the old man, aonvalescent, says the grace; Then he takes them. one by one, Eats eleven, while his son Sees them disappear with horror on his face.

The British Admiralty has at last abolished the cat-o'-nine-tails in the navy, which is to be disciplined without flogging from this time.

O autumn leaves, fall thick and fast; O autumn winds, blow free, And speed the bitter months along That keep my love from me. The trees are bleak and bare, the lake With crispy frost is cuarled, And the white :leep of the winter Has fallen t n the world. 0 winter sun in winter sky, Sink swiftly in the sea.

When Blinkey is alone without his grammar, Or uses French without a lexicon, He is just as sure to make some break or other As he ever tries to use a Gallic bon.
