In the basement of the Smithsonian In

There is one comfort in considerin
these imported Anarchists, with whom we
are rapidly corrupting the society of our

A statistical expert calculates that if 1,
,000,000 babies started together in the race
ot life, 150,00a would drop out in the
first year, 55.000 in the second, and 22,000
in the third year. At the end of the forty
five years about half of them would be in
the race. Sixty years would see 370,000
gray heads still in it. At the end of eighty
years-there would be 97,000 remaining on
the track ; fifteen years later the number
would be reduced to 223, and the winner
would quit the track forever a« the age of
The future of the stockgrowing business
in Montana is of more immediate import
ance than is generally conceded among
those outside of the industry. The owners
of large herds are not slow to admit to
their most intimate friends that there is
good reason to believe that the time of the
dissolution of large herds in Montana is
almost if not quite at hand. The policy
of the stockgrowers speaks louder than
their words. From present indications the
system of growing and fattening cattle
on immense ranges will not continue
many years longer. There is such a de
mand for the grazing lands for settlement,
and emigration to the west is so rapid—
not only from the Old World, but from the
eastern states—that many of these ranges
ere long must cease to exist. The land
will, in the course ot time, and that not very
long one, be all divided up into private
ownerships. Cattle will then be grown
on a smaller scale by individuals; and as
it is for the interest of the individual to
grow the very best, it is fair to infer
that the quality will be improved by the
change from the present range system,
which does not permit of that careful se
lection and breeding that individuals with
small herds can readily bestow. More
time will be required to displace the large
companies, who either have purchased or
leased the tracks over which they range;
but even these, like the Indian, will sooner
or later have to go and give place to the
individual settler.
The programme is about completed for
the "annual meet" of the Montana Press
Association, which will lie held at Boze
man, commencing Thurday, August 19, at

p. m., August 21, the Association will

Park, arriving at Cinnabar at 5:20 p.m.
Members can return from the Park at any
time during the next ten days The com
mittee lias arranged for a $2 rate of trans
port from Cinnabar to Mammoth Hot
Springs and return, and is negotiating for
reduced rates in the Park. The exercises at

behalf of the honorary members; a poem

tain-, continuation of the History of Mon
tana Journalism, by Will Kennedy, of the
Misson/ian, and probablv others not yet
definitely arranged for. Transportation
to the convention and Park and return
will be furnished to all active and honorary
members in good standing, and their wives,

Companies, and will be good for fifteen
So much has been said and written about
making a standard gauge of the Utah and
Northern railway, and so thany rumors
have been set afloat concerning the pro
posed change, that everyone along the road
naturally feels a lively interest in Its con
summation. It now seems to he a settled
fact that before many months roil by en
gines and cars of the standard gauge will
compose the trains on the Utah and North
ern railway between Pocatello and Garri
Some one asks "what is a standard gauge
and why was it chosen as a standard ?"
A standard gauge track is 4 feet 8 y t
incties wide, and it is "standard" from pre
cedent and custom. When Stephenson
built his first locomotive, lie, for some rea
son best known to himself, built it to the
gauge of the old tramways—for vehicles
drawn by norses—in England, which was
4 feet s y t inches That became what was
known as the "narrow gauge 1 ' in England,
and was naturally followed in this country
to a very great extent. Some of our roads
have a gauge of 4 fee! §4 inches, others
4 feet indies, and still others 4 feet 9
inches. In England they ha** a 6-foot
"broad" gauge, and at one time tfiirf a 7.
foot gauge. The Erie Road, built origin
ally by the aid of English capital, was at
first it 0 foot gauge, but in 1 S76 the chang
ing of it to 4-feet S h indies was begun and
now it i» ail of that gauge.

Travel in the National Park has already
commenced. Numerous improvements
have been made in various directions.
The roads, especially, have been greatly
improved under the supervision of Super

extends from June to November, instead
of October as herctolore.
At a camp meeting near Bozeman a
child of 14 was married to a young man
in his "teens." Why will Christian minis
ters persist in performing the marriage
ceremony in such cases? Surely the cause
of religion cannot be well served when
such outrages as this are perpetrated.
