Lo3T.-A large plain gold ring. The c
1uldor will be hanedsomlely rewarded by re- g
surning the same to this office, as the ring
is valued for the memories thatcluster about e
it, and inot its trinsic
So1ir ot the Smith river sheep men are
dipping their sheep. It is rather cool for P
this business, but it is claimed that sheep
that can stanl the drenching rains of the f
pacific coast can survive it withlout material t
i,_jury.
Is the article, entitled "A Talk With t
Young Ladles," published in our last issue,
a paragraph begins, " Think of a pair of
lovely girls," etc. It should have read:
,. Think of a fair and lovely girl."
gir. T. A. JohxsoN, of Smith river, paid I
u% a visit last Monday. Mr. Johnson is one t
of the few lucky farmers of the season, hav
ing escapled the grasshoppers. lie has raised
an excellent crop which lie is marketing at I
good prices.
MYi. F. GAUGLtR and James Carpenter
started for the Muscleshell country last Sat
urday. Mr. Gaugler owns a ranch, store,
and hotel at the Forks of the Muscleshell,
and Mr. Carpeuter is engaged in the fur and
peltry business. Jim is a mountaineer of
the true type.
T'rE splendid weather and good roads
gives promise of a .large turnout to the
Good Templars' ball, Friday evening. The
chivalry and beauty of Smith river, Cave
gulch, Missouri valley and Deep creek will
be in attendance. Those who would like a
good time ere the sand in the glass run out,
will do well to be on hand.
A BROTHER and brother-in-law of J. R.
Marks arrived from Illinois a. short time
since. These gentlemen are men of faini
lies, alnd came to Montana with a view of
making it their permanent home. Mr. Marks
has been engaged in the mercantile business
for a number of years in the States, and will,
perhaps, embark in the sanme pursuit here.
Mn. IIORACE BENNETT, of the firm of
Bennett & Goodale, of Birch creek, breed
ers and importers of thoroughbred Cots
wold sheep, paid us a visit on Tuesday last.
lie says their flock is grazing upon the hills,
near their home without a shepherd, and
are looking fine. They have completed one
room of their large barn, and are pretty
well prepared for winter.
IT is due to Mr. L. Rotwltt to state that
the official count gives him six votes less
than he is justly entitled to. We learn that
this was caused by illegible returns. At
Belt precinct Mr. Rotwitt received twenty
six votes, but the Board called it twenty.
The character intended to represent "6,"
was so indistinct that it might be construed
to be anything else.
THE citizens of Muscleshell valley are tak
ing steps to have a postofitce at the Forks of
the Muscleshell. Their petition for the same
will be forwarded. There are now about
thirty residents in this section, and were it
not for the fear of Sioux raids three times
this number would winter upon that valley.
A postoffice located at Mr. Gaugler's store"
will be ot great benefit to the residents.
IN our last issue we stated that the farm
ers were through harvesting, but we were
in error. The clatter of the reaper might
have been heard on several of our valley
farms up to last Saturday. These late crops
are abundant for straw. but the grain is
light-oats weighing only 15. to 20 lbs to the
bushel. But this is far betterthan no crop at
all, when we consider that they are wortl
$3 per cwt.
TIE name of . H. Vance, a miner of
Spruce Bar, a Kentuckian by birth, and as
clever and conscientious a gentleman as ever
walked upon 1l4ontana's soil,- was the first
entered ppon the subscription list of the
ROCKy MOUNTAIN HUSBANDMAN, and it is
wth no small degree of pleasure that we
record. him as being the first to come for
ward with a cash renewal of his subscrip
i~Qa for the second volunc..
P. J. AND SANFOnD MOORE, wood con
tractors for Camp B:lker, have linished de
livering 330 cords, the requisite amount for
that post.
CAPT. DUsoLD was in town this week on
a visit to our County 'I'reasurer. He states
that the prospects in Avalanche are very en
couraging. le is pushing the drain in his
ground ahead night and day.
W , are pleased to note the return of our
esteemed friend L)avid Marks. laving dis
posed of his intercst in the clothing busi
ness at Butte to his Uncle, he will become a
permanent citizen of Diamond.
ONE of the necessities in the preparations
for winter, is remodeling and sharpening
the teeth, and those in need of such work
would do well to call upon the skilled den
tist, Dr. C. W. Lombard, whose "ad" will
be found in another column. The Doctor's
work rives general satisfaction, and his
terms are reasonable.
Minssus. MAYNE & JIEITMAN, formerly
merchants of this place, and who for some
two years past, have been engaged in the
grocery business in Helena, have again
opened in that city. These gentlemen have
located on Rodney street, below Breckin
ridge street, where they will doubtless be
pleased to welcome their many friends.
They are liberal and fair dealers, and de
serve a good share of trade.
M1t. MAru SuELLEY, of Deep creek, in
forms us that his crop of oats which is be
ing threshed, weighs twenty-seven pounds
to the bushel. This is the crop which we
mentioned recently as having been sown in
the last days of June, and not watered un
til after the 4th of July. Twenty-seven
pounds to the bushel is pretty light oats for
Montana, but it is equal to the yield of
many of the Eastern States.

WE offer thanks to W. I. Marshall, Esq.,
formerly a resident of Montana, but now
traveling and lecturing through the East on
the National Park, for some very fine stereo
scopic views of that land of enchantment.
Mr. M., no doubt, gives a very' interesting
narrative of this region, as the great success
he is meeting with conclusively proves. We
know of no reason why he should not4 for,
no doubt, this is one of the most remarkable
of all the natural wonders of America.
Lofty, rugged mountains i deep tangled for
ests, gloomy as eternal night; inaccessible
canyons; boiling, foamling cascades whose
crystal flood, in its mad career, leaping over
dizzy precipices and disappearing in yawn
ing caverns, rarely ever catches the laugh
ing sunlight in its winding, stony pathway
to the sea. Placid lakes and babbling
brooks filled with tiny fish, and springs in
numerable-warm, hot, and boiling-sul
phur mud pools, spouting geysers, and
mammoth bath-tubs formied by nature ler
self-comprising in all the most weird, wild
and picturesque region to be fomid through
out the Rocky Mountains. The Eiastern
press speak in high terms of Mr. Marshalls
lecture and views, which must certainly
prove interesting to those who have not the
privilege of visiting these wonderful scenes
in personQ,
A TEACHER is wanted for Confederate dis
trict school. Address: P. J. Winston, Dia- I
mond City, M. T.
MRg. EAR;LE, brother-in-law ofR. A. John
son, arrived from the East last week. He
comes on a visit and will take a look at the
country.
Frog Mr. Hugh Morrow, who came in
from the other side last Saturday, we learn
that a number of the flocks which were
thought to be clear ot scab last summer are
becoming affected again, which he thinks
was caused by the use of poor dip. Hie says
that the strongest quality of tobacco should
be used and that dip cannot be made too
strong. Failing to get tobacco for dipping
again this season he has determined to give
his sheep a good share of attention. He
proposes to keep a kettle of strong tobacco
liquid on hand and whenever he discovers
signs of scab on any of the sheep he intends
to catch them and pour on' the hot tobacco
juice. In this way he hopes to come near
checking the disease and thereby save a full
clip of wool.
