SilverHow county one year ago latt^March, was organized and started^with a debt of 950,000.

Weatherprophets have been com^^mon in all ages; bi't none have been^tble to predict any changes w ith cer^^tainty, save for two or three iliiys in^advance. Still Mr. iice and Mr. Ven-^nor. anil all that class, do not hesitate^to declare months in advance what^will be the weather on any particular^day, or mies of days, in the coining^year or season. Now this is all pre^^tense founded upon the conviction that^if they guess right one time in five^they will do better than was expected,^and will become tuitions. These pre^^tenders have occupied more space In^the newspajters than they deserved.

Itis just beginning to dawn upon^the minds of the editors of .-evenil^Xew York and Boston journals that^the Lawrtry-Laboiiehere affair is a^very shrewd and successful advertis^^ing scheme, In referring to it the^Louisville Commercial says: '^The^ilea o! Mrs. I^ilioucheie heing a^moral and social mentor for the Jersey^Lily is preposterous. AVliile the^l.ansrtry held an inherent Mjdj posi^^tion in English society, Mrs. Lahou-^^ Iiere was simply Henrietta Hodson, a^pretty actress, and in Europe actresses^never develop into moral guardians.^Mrs. Langtry had almost played out^in Xew York through her bad acting,^and this social scandal comes in time^to rearonse public interest. If she^had been flagrantly connected with a^Xew York swell the seats would go^i.p to ten dollars, and Abbey and Mr.^Labouchere know it. But the interest^is aroused without sacrificing Mrs.^Langtry's reputation, and the auction^bale of seats still goes on.

Wtnotice the agitation of the^question respecting the forfeiture of^the Northern Pacific land grant is^renewed in Washington. It is not^evi lent whether this is a genuine^movement or is merely an agitation by^the stock gamblers to l^ear the market^and then load tip. We are heartily^opposed to any interference with the^.Vorthern Pacific rami grant now, if^the company will do the fair tiring^with settlers iu the disposition of^lauds, hut live later indications are^that the company is waking arrange-^aients to bear down ^on the settlers.^Why cannot the company put the^Montana lands that were examined^fast summer iii market by coufracts as^has been done elsewhere so we can see^what kind of a deal our people are to^get! The'pfess ef this territory has^indicated its disposition to stand in^with the Northern Pacific agaiaat any^attempted forfeiture of its land grant,^but if our own people are not going to^^receive from the company equitable^Sato* aid term, for lands they have^settled upon under piomise of lair^prices, there will be a change hi the^tone of Montana journals. The com^^pany ean quiet the distrust already^hecoe*lap; manifest by contracting^with settlers far the lands examined^tais year and it would be a good thing^t^^av-Attsi Sorthvtit.
