The Territorial .Grange of Montana met in second annual session, pursuant to ad journment, at "Pricly Pear Grange Hall, July 11th, at 2 o'clock p. m. A full representation not having yet ar rived, the Grange adjourned to meet at 9 o'clock, a. m., Wednesday morning, at which time work was commenced in earnest. The following members were present: Brigham Reed and lady; John Jones and lady ; A. W. Switzer and lady; W. B. Mc Adow and lady; E. A. Maynard and lady; A. F. Burns and lady; G. C. McFadden and lady; J. D. McCaman, Wmin. Wallace, P. B. Mills, A. Myers, S. B. Cope, N. M. Farnum. All business was transacted in the fourth degree and an invitation extended to all fourth degree members to be present. At 2 o'clock, p. m., Worthy Master Reed delivered his annual address to a crowded house, composed of the members of the Territorial Grange and visiting brothers and sisters from Prickly Pear and other granges in the county, at the close of which Worthy Master Jones, of Prickly Pear Grange, in behalf of that Grange, welcomed the mem bers of the Territorial Grange to their beau tiful valley and their homes. Upon invitation, Bro. Sample Orr made a few brief and witty remarks, which put the assembly in a good humor to partake of the sumptuous feast spread in the hall beneath by the sisters of Prickly Pear Grange,,to which we were next invited. The table pre sented a magnificent appearance and would have done honor to any occasion. Substan tials, spring chickens and sweet-meets were in endless profusion, and fairly burdened the table. Everybody seemed to rejoice that they were there, and the affair passed off very pleasantly. '. The Grange met in evening sealon at 7 o'clock, and proceeded to elect, officers for the ensuing term; which resulted as follows: Master-John Jones. Overseer-A. W. Switzer. Lecturer-A. L. Corbly.

Burns, and S. B. Cope. The installation of officers was made the special order for the afternoon of Thursday, July 13th, and at the evening session of that day the fifth degree was conterred. Prickly Pear Hall is well adapted to this work. The beautiful mysteries of this degree were ex emplified in great splendor, making a last ing impression upon the minds of all pres ent. All were delighted and instructed. The Grange having completed its labors. adjourned Friday evening, to meet at Prick ly Pear Grange Hall, on the third Tuesday in June, 1877. The meeting was harmonious throughout. There were no sectional jealousies-no envy -but a general feeling of good will prevailed during the entire meeting, and when the hour of parting eamrerand urgent business athome called upon them to separate, it was with great reluctance that they gave each other the parting hand. Though many of them had never met before, the assocla tion bad bound them together as a true band ot brothers and sisters. The members of Prickly Pear Grange threw open their houses and received the members ot the Terrlterlal Grange as though they were old Miends. Large baskets of :dinner wsge brought each day to the hall, to save t. necessity of going so far, while Sat night he members were taken to the sev eral homes in the neighborhood and enter. tainel as only true ftrmers could. A number of the representatives fro~m abroad were prepared to camp upon the a ground, but Prickly Pear Grange would Saccept nothfig short of receiving them is o their homes and sharing with them theo Scomftorta. t Betore the Grange a4Journed the folow. 1 ing resolutions wore adopted: Rsuolwed, That we highly appreciate th unbounded hospitality that the members of Prickly Pear Grange No. 7 have so gener ously extended toward us-that we will ever hold them in grateful remembrance, and earnestly hope that as a Grange they may be united, and as a people, happy and pros perous. Introduced by sister A. W. Switzer: Resolved, That,we wish, as a body, to ex press our appreciation of the effort of Bro. R. N. Sutherlin to give us a live Grange paper. That while we appreciate the sharp ness of his scissors we do not underrate the worth of his pencil. Resolved, That we will use our influence to induce our respective Granges to give him their united support, and to use the HUSBANDMAN as a medium of communica tion with each other. OUR NEW MASTER. Worthy Master of the Territorial Grange of Montana, John Jones, was born in Vir ginia, but lived a number of years in Ken tucky. He has been engaged in farming during most of his life, and is a gentleman of irreproachable character. He came to Montana in 1863, and in 1864 settled in the Prickly Pear valley, where he has since lived, honored and respected by all who know him. He has a large farm of 660 acres, in a high state of 6ultivation, and con veniently arranged with cross-fences, corrals, stables, etc. His residence is a gothic, very commodious, elegantly furnished, and sur rounded by nice shade trees, flowery walks and hanging baskets of rich and rare plants that tell of artistic hands and of a home of happiness within. Mr. Jones has reared a large family, most of whom have settled about him and become farmers. He has been twice elected Master of Prickly Pear Grange, takes a great inter est in the Order and will leave nothing un done which it is in his power to do to pro mote the welfare and prosperity of the or ganization. Being a man of great firmness, decision and judgment, under his supervis ion the Granges of Montana cannot help but prosper. We believe he will give his whole soul to the work, and that another year will witness such an awakening of in terest as has never before been known. Let the subordinate Granges but co-oper ate with Bro. Jones, and the great work of instructing the farmer and elevating his calling will be carried forward to success. BBRAINS WILL WIN, Farmers should ever bear in mind that the best brains will win. It is so in the busi ness world ; it is so in the literary world; it is so In all human affairs. The best inform ed minds are the most successful ones. Those who understand their business best, who know what is most needed to insure success in their enterprises, will be the suc cessful men. In these hard times farmers must see the necessity of having active brains as well as active muscles, if they expect to make mon ey. As in the profession of law there is al ways room for lawyers in the upper story, so there is abundant room for farmers to achieve success in the higher branches of the profession. The intelligent and thoughtful farmer plans his campaign beforehand with great care. He has certain objects to accom plish, a certain amount of money to make, to meet current expenses. or to pay certain indebtedness, or to use in purchasing stock or supplies, and the more wisely he lays his plans to attain that end, the more certainly he will succeed. Professional men select with great care the best and largest libraries. Every new book relating to their profession is purchas ed even it funds are scarce. Journals relat ing to their profession are subscribed for, and finally those who are most devoted to their profession, who understand it best, achieve the greater success. Should not farmers bear these facts in mind and imitate the example set them by all successfulmen ? -Patron of Husbandry. As the diamond is polished by continual friction, so people by associating together wear off their angles and peculiarities and become better members of society, and also better fitted for the struggles of life in which all must take part whether willing or not. Large families which have grown up tro, gether, have more harmoniously developed and evenly balanced characters from contin nal contact with each other, and the Grange is intended to do for the masses what the family does for the individual. To the presiding officer we should look for counsel and admonition, to each and every member for love, confidence and sym pathy, and we should mutually assist each other in all the varied walks of life. It is intelligent, educated thinking men and women that the age demands and the Grange is our school, none are too old to learn, none so wise but that they may gain in wisdom. But to women it has particular advantages opens the door, throws wide the portals to in finite possibilities and advancement. She has too long been considered as a.toy anI a slave, subject to the passions and caprices of men. All honor to the foun ders of this society, who have given her the position she now occupies; but it is not enough, she is not yet considered as an equal; for if it is not an insult to all womankind, to hold her position in County, State or National Grange, by virtue of being somebody's wife, it is a stigma upon the char acter of all. In conclusion, let us have Faith in God, Faith in ourselves; Hope for the future and what it promises to bring; Charity for all human faults and failings, and Fidelity to the obligations of our Order.--Kansas Farmer. Let us rejoice that the grange is doing a mighty work among us. and that the form. ation of each new grange is as a new star in the firmament, which will shed its radiant light, shining brighter and brighter until the perfect day. r T THE WORKING CLASS.
