IISCELLAI{EOUS. THE CONGO RIVER. Mr. W. Milner Roberts calls our attention to several references to the size of the Con go, made In Stanley'f report and quoted by us, which he finds it diflicult to reconcile. They -are these : "It certainly exceeds the Nile in volume, and possibly also in area of drainage." " Where Livingstone was stop ped, the Lualaba was a noble stream from 3,000 to 6.000 yards wide." That is on. mile to three miles wide. " Near the equa tor, it develops into a still broader stream from two to ten miles wide, choked with is lahds." " Then [referring to Congo] at the cata racts, where the river breaks through the Coast Mountains, the stream narrows to 500 yards or less; then spreads out into a broad stream from two to four miles wide, with a current flowing about three miles an hour. The volume of water discharged is enor mous; Captain Tuckey's estimate-2,000, 000 cubic feet a minute-is probably not far trom the truth." ' At its month the Con go is a thousand feet ...

Rocky oloUnntai1 JlHIG ll aun. R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. TIICRSDAY, I)ECE.MBER 27, 1877. NOTHING is truer than the saying that "one-half of the world does not know how the other half lives." Little is known of the disappountments, trials and privations have to be undergone by men of one trade, profession or calluig by those of another, even when they mingle together daily. Aind far less is known by the misses of the mole of lif andi thle exertions ireduired to sustain oneself iun the dlifferent sections of the coun try. IIre.in Montana there are, perhaps, some whothin.k the ways of life hard. Their long experience on the frontier, in mining camps in newly settled districts where mno ey was Rfash and business went with a rush. has accustom.ed them to extravagant ways. But to the man from the States who has all his life been used to the most rigid economy it appears quite different. In our $30, $10, and $60 per month, which an old Montanian regards as but a mere living, the pilgrim see...

IISCELLANEOUS. JOURNALISTIC ENTERPRISE IN"A NEW FIELD. The partnership of the New York Herald and the' London Telegraph in Atrican ex ploration is one of the most remarkable il lustrations of newspaper enterprise in' this day of great deeds. The knights of the pen who follow the changeful course of the Russo-Turkish war in Bulgaria and in Ar menia have won deserved renown for their employers not less than for themselves. But after giving the war correspondents due honor for their great services to the cause of humanity, as well as to the reading public, thebo palm must be awarded to enry iM. Stanley,,the African explorer. His rescue of Livingstone was a feat the memory of which the world will not willingly let die. But the ambition of Mr. Stanley is evident ly no vulgar rage for fame. Intimacy with the noble-hearted Livingstone seems to have enkindled in his soul an enthusiasm for the rescue of the lost continent, as Africa has been well called. It is now rescued from the realm of t...

R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. THURSDAY. JANUAPY 3. 1878. ANOTRUR mile-post on the journey of lite is passed, another link added to the mystic chain that stretches out from the shores of time towards eternity. The feeble old manl with hour glass and scythe, and gray with many harvests, has gathered another sheaf -apothler year, with its pleasures and palns, its deeds and misdeeds, its hopes and fears, its good and evil, has gone over to the past. What it has been to the great world we care but little. To the little world about us-to Montana-it has been fruitful. Every de partment ot business, every branch of Inldus try, rhas prospered. Our mines, more fully developed, yield larger and more steady revenues; our stock interests are buoyed up by a steady demand. while throughout our valleys our farmers enjoy the blessing ot well-filled granaries. But though the coun try is generally prosperous, few, perhaps, have realized all their hopes, or even all the dead year seemed to promise when fres...

There waits for us across the dreary way The golden dawn and splendor of to-morrow: T'o-morrow )Our paths shall blossom like the meads of May. To-day from Heaven's peace we feel outcast- We m1arvel if God marks the falling sparrow, And to the shorn lamb tempers the fierce blast. Dear Chrijt!-we shall get back our faith to-mor row: To-morrow Our doubts, and fears, and travails will be past. To-day we hug our pains and nurse our smarts, And have no courage to pluck out the arrow Pressing with venomed point into our hearts, But we shall be more firm, more brave, to-mor row: To-morrow We shall more nobly, wisely, act our parts.

MISCELLANEOUS. HEAT WAVES. Professor Piazzi Smyth, of the Royal Ob servatnry, Scotland, says that the coming winlter is to be Cxcceedingly cold. From( the obser'vations of earth therulionLeers over a period of 36 years, he finds that between 1837 and 1876 three great heat waves from without struck Great Britain, namely: The first in 1846i5; the seconid in 1858-0, and the third in 1868"7. The next one will prob ably come in 1879-, within limits of a half year each way. The periods of minimum templerature, or greatest cold, are Inot in the middle time between the crests of these three heat waves, but are comparatively close up to them, on each side, at a dis tance of about a year and a half. Hence the next cold wave is due at the end of the pres ent year, and very frigid weather may be looked for. 80ME NEW LECTURE EXPERIMENTS. II.
