It is a matter of great satis faction to Choteau County thai the superiority of her cattle ill ranges and til advantage of low 0- taxation are at last attracting the C3 attention of all the stock men in in, Montana. We learn that Messrs. Jessie Taylor & Co. are en route to the Teton range with 2,50Q ht head of cattle, Ryan & Dunbhy are on their way to the same id range with 1,100 head, Howell & Harris are about to purchase 1,000 head, Dan Floweree and c. Matt Carroll are pugchasing large ly in Oregon, and John Drew & Co. have bought a large aid well selected herd, all for the Choteau u County ranges. These are the latest additions, or intended ad-I ditions, to the numerous large er and small bands already within 11 the county, and we are confident that the experience of these old dealers will cause others to follow their wise example until Choteau 1 becomes the great cattle county of Montana. Certainly no other county in the Territory has more extensive or better ranges, and e the experience of stock men dur ring the past winter indicates thatK cattle will fare better durinig the i cold months in this vicinityI than they will or can on any other l ranges in the Territory. But c these are not all the advantages that Choteau affords to stock 1 men. The matter of low tax- d ation is no small item, reducing e as it does the expense of car- ii ing for the cattle and en- a abling dealers to increase their it herds. As a shipping point and a it market for the sale of surplus cat- o tle, Benton has no equal in Mon tana. The military post on Milk g river, the various Indian agencies y and trading posts, the Northwest t Territories and the town itself h afford extensive markets for the p sale of cattle, and the steamers oi c( the Missouri, together with the J fine drive along the river as far as tl Buford and Bismarck, afford every s5 desirable advantage for disposing of beef and stock cattle at small tI expense and good prices. Indeed, ti there appears no reason why Cho- C teau should not soon become the fo natural range for all the large re Iherds now in Montana. Some G dealers, of course, have become permanently settled in other sect ions of the Territory and will not care to drive their stock this way, Ih even while acknowledging the tH superior merits of the Choteau ranges, but we venture to say e that all who are engaged in tlhe til business of stockraising with an fo eye to profit alone.will soon rea- ly lize the fact that they are losing s money by not following the wise zourse of the above named gentle- t men, who are undoubtedly des tined to become the leading cattle kings of Montana. There are some communities where they marry too little, and others where they marry too much, and the moral scruples of those communities in which a due mat rimonial equilibrium is main tained is very naturally prejudiced against either of these two ex tremes. In some of the extremely rural mountain districts of Ken tucky dad Tennesoee and the Caro linas and West Virginia a great many of the people are extremlv careless about the legal technical ities that bind two hearts as one. Custom has given sanction to a usage which to more enlightened society savors somewhat of the immoral. Of the too much mar ried the Mormans furnish a very notable example, and perhaps the too much married are as obnox ious to the moral sentiments of the public as the too little married. Either error is looked upon as indicating rather a low stage of civilization or moral culture. But -a bad condition of social life has lately developed itself in the State of Massachusetts, in which State so much goodness has germinated in years past and been transplant ed to less fortunate climes, that this new development seems al most incrcd:ble and produces a gal vanic shock aiF up and -down the back-bone of American society. larnstable, Mass., is the 'county seat of th=- county of tije same name, which comprises Cape Cod. Cape Cod is but a short distance south of Plymouth Rock, and has always been supposed to be thor oughly infused with the orthodox and conservative spirit that was brought over in the Mayflower. Yet, in the matter of matrimony, recent events have developed a state of things sad to contemplate. The May term of the Supreme Court of the aforesaid county was in session just tell days, and every case except two on the docket was an action for divorce. No les than thirty Cape Cod women came before the Judge and asked to be divorced from their hus bands. About every case was one of early and ilnjudicious marriage in which the parties had lived, together as man and wife for periods ranging from twenty-five hours to six, seven or ten weeks, acco:ding to the strength of the original attachment. In one fami ly there wore three applicants for a divorce at the same time, and all these thirty applications had to be granted, for such is the law of' the old Bay State that three years abandonment makes divorce per raissable. H And now it is the stove-pipe r- hat, that, like the claw-hammer It coat and Lo, the poor Indian, that lei is slowly passing away. Thie press has vainly lampooned the paste r board abom;nations, loaded its un t compromising ugliness with the f objugations of sincere detestation, has literally and figuratively sat dawn upon this unyielding cylind ,'er of glossy veneer, has smashed its pretentious followers with met aphoric shillalahs and battered it into unsightly ruin, but still it has in this country until recently held " on to popular prejudice as the - quintessence of varnished elc gance. Go to London to-day and s you will see John Bull on his way t o church Sunday morning with f his stove-pipe hat religiously su e perimposed as the signal of his complete respectibility. John Bull. e Jr., and Johnson Bull, and Johna s than Bull and the innumerable sequel of little bulls follow the paterimal lead, all shingled wi;l the inevitable tile of shining gen tility. In the glittering French Capital the chimney-pot covering for the head is so entirely de regeur that your cab driver will solicit the honor of your patron 'age in a japanned immitation of the silk original that the civiliza tion of this country, thank God, is happily outgrowing. -Look upon the people of the street whom you meet to-day and nineteen out of every twenty will be seen to wear the more artistic as well as conm fortable hat of yielding or partial ly stiffened felt, and slowly but surely the sham pasteboard and glue and silk plush is relegated to the heads of those whose tastes were formed when the present generation of men were boys. If France has the monopoly of fur nishing fashions and tissues, and the innumerable gimn-cracks for ladies' adornment and frivolities, America has set a style of her own that is founded on common sense in men's head gear, and one, more over, that is an improvement over a section of drain pipe, veneered with black plush, which the civil ized portion of the human family has been contented to suffer so long that the memory of man run neth not to the contrary. The cngineer, tender, conductor and brakesman of the Territory of Montana have all gone fishing this summer, leaving the train to the baggage master ar.d passengers to run for the time being. It is to be hoped that everthing will go on smoothly if they don't go to dis cussing politics and run the Terri tory into the ground.-Ex. When the King of Bavaria wit nesses a play every other specta tor is excluded from the theater, and his royal nibs enjoys the af fair in solitude supreme. The actors thus know just where to credit all cat calls and pea.nut shells, and when a pondrous bou quet almost knocks some pretty dancense down she knows precise ly in what direction to bow.
