WE. M. PIuCE & Co.-, No 14, South Commlrclhl St., St. Louis, arc our authorized agents to transact aul Ishdness, contract for udvertising and receive 4 subscriptions. Tag sheep men on the east side are nearly done shearing. L. D. BnT, of the California ranch, hns over fifty sacks of wool ready for shipment. "' TWILIGHT MUSINGS,"' by'" Pandora," is the most attractive feature of the HUSBANDY .a.m this week. OUR wool-growers have delayed dipping their sheep on account of their tobacco not haviing yet trrived. PAn~tBn ur & STEVEWS' flock of sheep :avrag5ed six pounds of wool per head. They had one ewe that sheared thirteen pounds. THERE is a larger head of water in Boul der.gulch than was ever known before, and our miners are nmaking good use of it. THERE is more snc w in sight on the moun tains at the present time than we ever saw before at this se.tson of the year. FnoM the best informnation we can gather throughout the mining .camps, the supply of water is abundant, and there is a good prospect for its holding out well. Thit Duck creek quartz mill is running regularly. A force of twelve men are em ployed on the Nancy lead taking out ore, which continues to show remarkably rich. THE TWO best sheep shearers in Meagher county have $100 each that say they can, both together, shear 200 head of sheep per clay; catch their sheep and tie up the fleeces. HIvTo Monnow is the champion sheep shearer of Smith river valley. We under stand that he will wager $100 that he can clip the wool from 100 head of sheep in one day. Joux KEATON'S flock of sheep, on the Missouri valley, averaged six pounds of wool to the head. It is of good quality, his sheep not being affected with the scab or any other disease. P. J. Wi.sroN is marketing a superior article ot butter. His success in butter- t making is to some extent attributable to the fact that he has one of the best dair-y houses in the county. THE stock-growers of upper Smith river valley propose to have a general round-up 1 immediately after the Fourth. They will meet on the 30th inst., at,the place of sale of the Orr cattle to arrange preliminaries. ALBERT FILrsoN passed through town a Friday en route to Smith river to assist Mr. Crittenden in shearing his flock of sheep. Mr. F. is an expert at the business. We .learn that he sheared sixty-one head the third day's trial, on the Missouri valley. PERSONS who may wish to buy some good milch cows, young steers, heifers or. other stock cattle will do well to attend the Sher itl's sale to come off at Harris' store, near Ca;pp Baler, on June 30th. Judge Orr, the owner of the stock, says as they must be sold, he:hopes there will be a good attenid mice. Mn. DEsnIs LAWLER, of;White's gulch, had his shoulder dislocated by.the caving of a bank while working in a ground-sluice, last week. Failing to getit set in thatgulch. he walked over to this place Sunday, and Dr. Parberry, our only medicals man, being out of town, our firiend J. S. McClintock turned too and in a few moments had the dislocated joint all right agaih. GRAII in many fields. which has been eaten off the second time, still continues to live and peeps up through the ground again where the grasshoppers are not watching it. Our farmers shQuld not give up the fight, but turn on the water. There is still hope. Do not abandon the fields until there isno longer a possibility of saving even one-third of a crop. A xNTJMER one dairy raneb, consisting of 3A seres, on the Missouri "valley, known mp the " old Mason ranch," was sold at. Sheriff's sale last week, for $816 to our County Clerk, Mr..'1. E. Collisns We takepleasure in wel coming -Mr. Collins- to the ranks of the grangers. .There is more enjoyment in a few years of honest toil than in a lifetime of labor In the tanks of the'legal profession. THE cut-worms have' been playing havoc with Mr. Cole Puett's cabbage. Out of six hundred plants he has only about one hun dred and fifty left. IT His been suggested that the health of thehorses of an up-town. stable would ,e materially benefitted by the removal of the manure from the street in front of it. Mr. H. W. IITlrHIsoN has lost a bady thre - year-old mare, witlh black mane and tal, which has either strayed 6ff or been stole. He will reward any person who will gi e any information wlhich will lead to her i - covery. Mr. FREDERICK DEAXN2ER and family, f New York City, arrived in Diamond la t Friday. Mr. D. is a brother-in-law of of r townsman, L.. J. Ramspeck, and comes make his home in Montana. We welcon him. * LEQPOLD MARrs of the California stor, has a lot of canned vegetables put up by i A. Dixson. of Mlissoula county. It gives tI pleasure to chronicle the success of MA.r Dixson, and hope he may make fruit antd vegetable panning a profitable business. We have samplot some of 14s vegetables and ronounce them an excellent quality. Mn. C. W. COOK arrived last Tuesday from the East with one hundred head of thoroughbred sheep. Five of the bucks are imported and cost $200 each in gold coin] in Canada, and are by far the finest Cots' ivolds ever brought to Montana. Mr. C. has also four thoroughbred Spanish Merino bucks. One of the imported Cotswolds and a portion of the' flock are the property of Messrs. Goodell & Bennett. THE Gold hill giant has been the chief attraction for the past week. Numbers have been seen daily climbing the hill to witness his marvelous performances. He tosses the boulders about as a child would so many pebbles, and banks of cement crumble away: like sand in an ordinary stream. The great " little" fellow got naughty a few evenings since, while a number of ladies were wit nessing his feats of strength, and literally baptised the whole party with mud, water ai; gravel. And now they think it is hard to fascinate.him. ' "L for vrntl' anct t e - dt.itoionpmpaigies, on Eldorado bar, have combined the water. of the two ditches and are,; clearing off the gravel at a brisk rate. Withl the water of both ditches, they have about twelve hun dred inches, with which they, clainm they can accomplish 'more in twelve hours than can be done with six hund'ed incbhes in t~venty-four hours. The two companies are working twelve hours alternately. Butterfield & Bro.,.on the same bar, have a good head of water and are using it to .good advantage. MR. P. McKNIGHT, Of Missouri valley, has. recently become the successor of Samuel Ickis. having purchased the blacksmith shop of Mr. Ramspeck. Mr. M. is carrying on a pretty extensive business. He lihas a shop near Canton. and a large firm besides his shop in this pl'ce. We welcome him to our town, and trust that his success in the busi ness in which he is skilled' may prove as profitable to him as it hits tf his p·edecessor, who at two different times eartied':away-a handsome "home stake~' from the old shop. WE CALT especial attention of farmers to the advertisement of T. C. Power & Co., of Helena, in another colu9an. This is the only firm in Montana who deal exclusively in farm implements and; machinery.. Sev eral of the hardware firms who have here totorekept small stocks in this line have discontinued this branch of trade altogether. Power & Co. have a large capital employed, and are prepared to do business on ai small margin. Their stock of mowing apd, reap ing machines and extras is complete, We bespeak for them a. liberal share of patron age. W: \E ARE glad to learn tflat Daniels & Estis' ferry-boat is not lost as was reported last week. It seems .that the river raised sud denly, causing the guy-ropes to break loose from the boat. -The boat being chained to: a strong stake, was forced under water, and now lies at the bottom covered with sedi ment. We learn that the proprietors. had. e taken down their cable and were about to a abandon the premises when they discovered, f that their boat was lying safely at the bot tom. of the stream. WE acknowledge a call yesterday trorn Mr. E. M. Davidson, of- Gallatin ,county. Mr. D. is making a canvassing tour ot the Territory in the interest of Gray's' eiv Atlas, which, by the way, is a valuable book, and shottld be in every household. It eon tains statistical tables showing the popuila tion of the principal cities of the, United States at different periods, and other valua ble statistical matter, the pist-otieies in the United States, railroads, etc. It contains one of the most eorie.t maps of Montana we have seeni. E.TonR IT-usBA\.pAx: As the weather continues so wet that but little work can be done, I concluded to drop you a few lilies in regard to crop prospects, etc.,in this section. The grasshoppers are still on the *lwar path." They have made a clan seep 'of all the wheat in this part of the valley, but I think we have 'a "goon prospect for: an oat and barley crop. The farmers are still sow ing dats, some dt them on, ground which has been eaten off by the grasshoppers.' ·N·t *ithstanding the'grasshoppers ardestill ;Wry thick, the farme, s have not " lost their grip," and some of them tre going ahead as though there was every indication of a heavy crop. Mi. Jeff. Sharp is pushing things quite lively. Mr. Thos. Thorpe has a fine looking, erop, 'and so has Mr. Riley Deadman. 8o far, the 'hoppers have dealt lightly with the two' last named gentlemen. 'Mr. Jacob:Titman is " rauhtngthingfHis l ously," buying raiches au imaproVing'thhm. Mr. Titnman is the right kind of a man for a new. country. ': He has bought, two farms in the last two years, and through his energy and perseverance, has both under a 'high state of cultivation. On his utpper farm he has th& best eorral h' Montana; i fine hodse and excellent V li; and'ii good, substantial barn, granairy, etc`i and the Garli~g oollabe I is one of the best in tlC Territoryv Mr. T.i 'is still pushing things right along. He. al ways did say, if he had but One raneh, 'and could not do it'in any other way, he would sell one-half of it to put good, substiratial improvements on the other half.' Yours truly, SA~xoHO.
