THE ROUNDER.
Alas! The mighty has fallen. The
dream of future greatness has vanished
like a mirage of the desert. Utopia is no
more. Where was once a thriving city,
now the gaunt wolf howls among the
naked lodge poles. The streets that
once knew the patter of busy moccasins,
and the grating of loaded ttavois are
now grass grovn and silent. No longer
is heard the musical jabber of the smoke
stained infant or the energetic "sacre"
of the grown man. Gone are the long
haired patriarchs of this beautiful city,
gone are their sturdy, lazy sons; gone
are the picturesquely slattern women
and gone their bedizened daughters.
As the Rounder hove in sight with
thoughts of a royal welcome and gen
orous feed in his mind the vacant space
would have taken his breath away, only
it smelled of gin.
As it was he sat down
on a stone and took a long pull at his
bottle. His heart was broken. All his
dreams of future greatness as mayor of
a metropolis, all his ambitions for these
dirty, thieving people were busted like a
toy balloon on the fourth of July. He
was sad with an unspeakable sadness,
and'he lay down and took a sleep in the
mellow sunshine. When he awoke he
sauntered through the deserted streets
looking for mementoes of the departed
people. A worn out moccasin, a batter
ed tomato can, a piece of a petticoat, a
shred of a blanket and a picket pin,
these he found and placing them in a :
heap he sat down and scratched his ear. {
Like Longfellow he stretched his im- !
agination to learn where these modern
Acadiaos had gone. Far and wide over .
the boundless wastes of Montana are
they scattered, burrowing after the de
predating coyote, trolling the limpid J
brooks for scanty fish or with stealthy j
footsteps approaching the big, fat range :
steer to brahd"him for their own with a j
small hole ié his hide. Tilling the soil? '
Nary. These Utopians are no sin cursed
mortals. The earth is theirs and the
fullness thereof. But they'll come back. I
Yes! like the cat, they'll come back, and
in the meantime the Rounder will have
to do like other christians, watch and
wait, but if they don't return before
November he will be in a bad fix, for it
was on this vote that he bankod to get
him an easy chair in the county court
house. There are a few things the
Rounder would like to know: How
much is tha fare to Butte, one way? Is
Marcus Daly at home? Why don't the
doctors prescribe a dose of Carter's
Little Liver pills for Montana politics?
Who put those eagle's eggs in the politi
cal dove's nest? What is the difference
between fame and notoriety? (see Mon
tana.)
B*d Year for Them.
This is going to be an awful hard year
for the fellows in Montana who subscribe
to democratic dogmas. They can't hur
rah for the soldiers on Decoration day—
that's militarism; they can't help hoist
the flag on the Fourth of July—that'f?
imperialism; they can't toll their friends
to come weet and take up land on the
ceded reservations—that's expansion;
they can't welcome the nation's presi
dent to this state-—that's McKinleyism;
they can't cheer for the queen of the in
dustry exposition—that's the pomp of
monarchy; they can't even get in with
the rest of us and brag about the won
derful way Rad Lodge and other citie-;
of Montana are gaining in population
and wealth and industry—that's pros
perity. And when the election returns
come in,—well they can go away out be
hind the barn and weep and wail and
wrangl« over their sore defeat.—lied
Lodge Picket.
Tlie Cattle Queen.
In all that broad expanse known as
the West there is probably no woman's
name better known than that of Mrs.
Nat Collins the 'Montana Cattle Queen.'
Although time has worked changes in
hor fortunes the title still jling» to her
and probably always will, for many
would fail to remember her by any other
name. The great broad plains of the
mountain state where once large bands
of Mrs. Collins' ca'.tle roamed have now
passed to other hands. Her stock has
all been sold and for the first time in
e she has turned her back forever on
the scenes that have surrounded her
home for faver a quarter of a century.
In speaking with a friend last week
Mrs. Collins stated sho would never
again return to Montana. There her
fortunes were made and lost and in new
fields she will seek there recuperation.
She is now in Seattle en route to Cape
Nome, where she will open up a wild
west show after the fashion of Col. Wm.
Oidy and also pay some attention to
mining at which she is said to be
expact.— Ex.
DEATH TO SHEEP.
an
From Eating Wild Onions«
The camas or wild onion, known bet
ter perhaps to sheepmen aB death onion,
is causing some loss of sheep among
fiockmasters living in the northern part
of the state, according to Prof. B. V.
Wilcox, of the agricultural department,
who is in the city, says the Helena
Herald. Prof. Wilcox and Prof. Chest
nut were sent to Montana by Secretary
Wilson of the agricultural department,
to gather all the information possible
relative to the growth and goneral bad
reau lts of various poisonous plants grow
in 8 in this state that are harmful to the
*' ve stock interests. The two B)en of
science will spend the summer in Mon
tana, gathering such information,
Prof. Wilcox has just returned from a
trip through parts of Teton, Choteau,
Cascade and Fergus counties and will
leave this evening for Shelby Junction
to make some plant examinations in that
locality. Prof. Wilcox says that where
ever he has gone the sheepmen have af
forded him every courtsey in the way of
assisting him in gathering information
assisting him in gathering information
respecting these plants. He has had the
chance to take certain deformed and
practically worthless sheep to feed them
upon certain plants to enable him to
watch the result. Some of these sheep,
after becoming poisoned have been saved
by the application of antidotes.
The professor says that the wild onion
appears to be causing the most trouble
i ug t now. It grows in thp * bottoms of
coulees, in some instances upon the open
prairie. It has a bulb like an onion,
with loug, grass-like leaves bearing a
cross between a white and yellowish
I flower. The leaves have a very astrin
genttast*; for all that the foolish ani
[ mais will eat them. It is a remarkable
; 'act that in some instances the ewes that
i have eaten the wild onion have been
known to live while the lamb that was
j being suckled died suddenly
The professor expects to gather a vast
&naoun t of valuable information respect
ing the growth of this troublesome wild
onion and the best manner of treating
, animals poisoned with it. That it is
very poisonous substance is shown by
I the fact that Prof. Chestnut made an ex
tract from the bulbs and gave some of
the liquid to a rabbit, producing almost
instant death.
The trouble from larkspur is not
prevalent this year as formerly.
