SocIr y II0otlltia Hnuoanumuam It. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TH~URtSDAY, JI NE 14, 1877. THE chief advantage which Molntana pos sesses over her sihtcr Territories is her ina jestic navigable strea:ms, which afford com mercial taeilities of no small consideration. Other Territories, though they possessed greater advantages In soil, climate, pastoral and mineral wealth, could not. even though they had raihload:, compete with Mbntana. The railroads Montana will have in time, but the navigable waters our sister Terri tories never can have. It was for many years doubted' that the navigation of the. Missouri river. would prove a success, but now that fact is no longer controverted. Experience has at last proved a valuable auxiliary in the work, for it was not until many trials- were lad and various obstacles were over come, that this wan rendered easy. Next to be proven is the Yellowstone, whose cur rent is perhaps swift and difficult to stemn, yet whose navigation has not, up to this date, m...

The xwoidertfl proportions to which this busi inew has grown within the short space of of one year, has not only caused much news paper comment din the old country, but it il:ts .rcated a considerable stir and unleasi nesas among the Scotch farmers, whose prin cipal product is beef raising. The Scotch ,an's correspon4ent writes from New York City. His visit to America is for the pur pose of examing her agricultural resources,; and he is unrestricted as to time and means to apprise his readers of htliese lcts.

MISCELLANEOUS. THE EFFECT OF TOBACCO ON THE HU MAN SYSTEM. In the fourth annual report of Michigan State Board of Health, Dr. Scott relates something new in the influence of tobacco on the human system, as follows: "' There has come under my notice for several years, but more particularly during the last two years, a kind of rheumatic con dition of the walls of the chest. The patient complains of a dull heavy pain in the chest walls. The disease in a large majority of cases is confined to the left side. The pain is circumscribed and limited to a space of not more than two inches in diameter, just below and a little to the left of the lift nip ple. At times the pain is very severe, and always constant day and night, when the patient is awake. I have investigated the disease to some extent, and find it to be more common among tobacco users, espec ially those who use the weed to excess. Pa tients suffering from this complaint invar iably come to their physican with the belief that they...

Rt y o.] 1.U tail lllbal iman ,, R. N. SUTHERLLN, Editor. THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1877. NOTHING cripples the energies of a couln try worse than a disposition on the part of its people to run in debt. It is perfectly le gitimate to borrow money to engage in busi ness enterprises, for in this case the borrow er looks to his investment to bring funds to pay the interest ; careful business men make this profitable. But this is altogether difflr cnt from what is generally termed running in debt. Running in debt is getting behind with payments, buying on credit, indulging in the luxuries of life; becoming encumbered and having nothing to show for it. This is what breaks men up in business, or keeps them hard pushed all their lives to keep the wolf from the door. The farmer who has a fam ily dependent upon him for support should never place a mortgage upon his home, lest he may fail to meet his calculations, and in course of time see all that is dear to him turned out of doors. Inflicted with g...

LIVE STOCK. THE EFFECT OF BREEDING ON MARES. We have often been asked what we thounght of breeding a filly which has to be trained after breeding acolt or two. The in stances that we have known have proved that it was not detrimental to speed. Princess, Lady Palmer and Lucy had each one foal before they were trained, and Flora Belle two ; and in a late number of Bell's Life in London is the following fiom one of the correspondents of that paper. Ils article is in relation to the breeding of hunters: "It does not hurt a three-year-old filly at all to breed from her. She has a foal at four, and the autumn of that year she is broken. Some have even bred advantage ously from two year olds. I fancy it spreads a lightish animal to have a foal. and that it does not hurt their constitution in the slight, est degree is proved by the numerous mares that have dlone real good things after they have had several foals. I have seen Theo dora, by the Emperor, run in the same stee ple-chase with her...

PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY.

From the dark shadows of the unenlight ened past to the promising brightness of the present. the oft recurring and vexatious qluestion, "What shall we do with the wo men ?" finds a place in the deliberations of conservatives, and not unfrequlently those who style themselves reformers. When the beautiful Order of the Patrons of Husbandry came into existence with its platform strong enough and broad enough tbr husbands and wives to stand upon with out jostling each other, thousands of good men and women throughout the country re joiced that time-worn prejudices where giv ing way to a new order of things,were sim ple justice promised to rule.

TERRITORIAL NEWS. From the Avant Courier. p, W. McAdow has returned, looking well, and convinced that Montana's only hope is in some, or any, railroad. Whilehe witnessed the large emigration to Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, he met but ten making their pilgrimage to this Territory. The river is now "booming"-our ex changes announcing the arrival at Glendive and Tongue river of several large steamers (among them the Peninah, Far West, Jose phine and Fanchon). The Bismarck Trib u.e of the 30th, record the presence of 10 boats on this "mountain rivulet." Under the able supervision of County Treasurer McCaman, a joint-stock blooded stock association is forming here. The ar ticles of incorporation are drawn, limiting the capital to j50,000 in shares of $100 each, and a tract of land for the uses of the asso ciation will be taken up under the Desert Land Act.

BUN SPOTS AND RAINFALLS. There is tendency among scientists to ac knowledge a connection between sun spots :ind earthy weather. During the last six ty-four years records of the rainfall in South ern India have been kept. From a study of these observations, it has been found that the periods of greatly deficient raintall oc cur regularly about the year when the sun has the fewest spots upon its disk, that is, every eleven years. The theory is that when there are the fewest spots onthe sun, there is the great est solar heat, which prevents the vapor of the atmosphere from condensiun into rain clouds and falling as rain. A drought in Indian means famine. Therefore, the alleg ed connection between the eleven-years sun spot period and a deficient rainfall is of the utmost importance to the Indian govern nient. If it exists. then, during the eleven years of heavy rainfall and abundant crops, provisions must be made for the one year of drought and famine. c-rt-c.-- -- THE ONE DOLLAR NOTICE...

Rocy . o.llLainl 11iiH aldlndman. R. N. SUTHERLLN, Editor. THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1877. Asa general thing it is understood that there is no use warning our people against too much or too close confinement to labor, yet strougly prevalent as this opinion is there are many in our midst who confine themselves altogether too much to their work. There are many dairymen and farm ers who not only work from sun up till sun down, which is nearly fifteen, hours, but work from sun rise until into the night the entire summer season. We know of farmers that do this, of farmers' wives who never know when their labor is done, of farmers' sons and daughters whose constant work makes life grow irksome, and who long for the dawn of manhood and womanhood that they may quit the scenes they are thus com pelled to despise for some other calling.. Now, this is not economy ; it is not profit able to the farmer to spend all his time at labor or compel his famnily to do so. Every day should have its hours allott...

LIVE STOCK. NATURAL AGE AND CONDITION OF HORSES FOE BREEDIN&. This is a difficult question to solve on ac count of the well known fact, says the Mich igan Farmer, that breeds that mature early breed well young. and those that mature late breed best at an advanced age. When the parents are at the age of their greatest strength and vigor they will undoubtedly breed their best colts. The Abdallahs have the merit of breeding well at all ages, both old and young. IIambletonian got Alexan der's Abdallah-the sire of Goldsmith Maid --at two years old. IIe was noted as the sire of famous trotters, and he got many excellent stock horses. Rtys yk's lHamble tonian sired George Wilkes at six years old, and Jay Gould at the age of fourteen years -both have records low down in the twen ties. He also got Messenger IDuroc at fif teen, and Nettie, with her record of 2:18, at sixteen years old. Sherman Black hawk sired Vermont Hero at four years old, and Vermont Hero, in turn, got Gen.
