Cotton, the great crop of the Southern states, was valued at $324,ooo,o0,. In addition to these foremost crops, there were numerous others yielding re turns in value that ran into the millions. Live stock and their products formed an exceedingly important factor in the grand total. The animals sold and slaughtered during the year were valued at above $90oo,oo,ooo. The several products of the dairy-milk, butter and cheese--comprised an item of $472,000,0oo, while poultry and eggs together brought a return of over $:81,ooo,ooo. As a result of the intelligent applica. tion of improved methods to American agriculture, the produce of our farms has enabled us to increase the volume of our exports every year.

Montanna sends sincere condolences to New York and the East. Out here in this country, which nor fa tern friends cr roneously regard as the "bleak North west," the weather so far this winter has been kindly and conCgelnial. We have hard ly hal "overcoat weather" as yet. The birds are piping their songs of joy and the icemnan lookl, glihl. But "back in New York" snow tnd sleet are playilng hob with elevated liines, while surface traction "is slow and diffinicult." Even telegraph aul teletphone comnlunicationl betweent uptown and downtown in G(;lothall is carried on witll pain and profanity. 'lhroughomut the state "blizzard condi tions" prevail. Long Island sound steam ers coiime creeping in late and report in tenise cold and severe gales from New York to Fall River. The tatskill region i. swept by a Go mile' gale. Five inches of snow in l'ittshltrg. and the nation.s capital is tied up in a heavy Isnow and a tangle of wrecked wires. So goes the teeth-chattering story all oter the Eastern, ciountry, whlore the peo pl' go about in cartnl's anild iiournl their fate. The' moral is obhvious. lThe Northwest is lied about. It is here where sutnuer lingers aItu regrets to go. It is in the last that the I'ce King rules with territic and tyrannous sway.

Taft, who is a cigar man in Spokane and an enterprising citizen withal, has a project on foot to heat the city of Spokane with steam to be generated from a central plant and dis. Steam Heat tributed through a system for of pipes wherever it may Spokane. he required in residences and business houses. Mr. Taft has sufficient financial backing to make the enterprise go, and the city council will le asked to grant the necessary franchise. "1 have looked into this matter very carefully and thoroughly," said Mr. Taft, "and I find that other cities have made a success of this system of heating. The ordinance which we have asked the city council to pass is virtually a copy of the one now in force at Seattle, while it in porporatcs mIany of the points in the or dinantces of Tacoma, Portland, Buffalo, N. Y., Washington, I). C., and P'hiladel phia. In these places and lumerous others the system has proved to lie a great hcnefit and saving to the people and a sotrcce of revenue to the owners. "'(or plllt will necessitate an expendi ture of $55o,oroo and will be enlarged from time to time as the demand increases and the company can see its way clear thereto. The men who will be interested in this enterprise with me are not ready to have their minaes given (oult at present. I have no idea as to the probable location of the plant and that is a thing which will have to be determined later on, al though somle central place must be se cored." When it comes to heating towns the city of Boise, Ilaho, probably has the ideal imethod. I.ou E. Johnson, the well-known mining man, who has been in lButte this week, described it to the Boise Heated inter Mountain. "Down With in Boise," said Mr. John Hot Water. son, "we heat oulr towil ith natural lihot water which boils from the ground close by. It is a perfect system. The water is always hot and the supply seems inexhaustible. \e even sprinkle our streets with hot water. The hot water supplly is ownted by a private coimipany and of course the esn terprise is prolitable. \\heii it cotlles to public heating you can't heat the Boise systelll."
