I Don't Miss It | WILD DORSES IN SNOWIES To most people who are familiar with the rapid settlement of the state of Montana during the past few years it will no doubt prove a surprise to learn that there still exists, in the Sno w y mountains the remnant of what was once a large herd of wild horses. It is said that they are more timid than a herd of deer, and that they have a way of warning one another of approaching danger that is as well understood as a wigwag or reliograph system. Upon occasions the hand, which numbers between 20 and 80, has been seen recently by ranchers of the locality, quietly feeding, while their sentinels maintained a watchful vigil from the nearby lull tops. The moment the lookouts discover the approach of an enemy they im mediately start a demonstration which is readily understood by the feeding horses and other sentinels, and, led by a big black stallion, they will thunder away through seemiugly impassable crevices or over the sum mit of a steep hill to safety. Oldtimers of the vicinity aver that a few years ago the hand num bered close to 100, but has of lute materially decreased. The stallion iB described as a splendid specimen of horseflesh, being coal black, with the exception of white forefeet and a small blaze upon the forehead. Aside from the stallion, the horses are liiij dersized and scrubby, but are fleet and surefooted. Although numerous attempts have been made by cowboys and ranchers of the vicinity to capture some of the wild ponies, as yet no one has been able to approach near enough. They eaten only a fleeting glimpse ol Uiein as they scurry away to their hiding places. Xo doubt the hand is offspring of a lot that forsook the ranges aud wandered off into the fastnesses of the mountains.—Lewistown Xews. Advertised Letters.
