Draper, one of the managers anil partners in the Ohio Cattle company, who have upwards of 6,000 head, principally steer cattle, and holding on Musselshell creek. Montana, forty miles south of the Missouri river, returned home the first of last week from a three months' tour to the company's possessions, taking in the stock situation between here and that sec tion. He spoke iu high praise of that re gion as a stock country, and thinks cattle in that extreme northern climate are har dier, grow larger and take more fat than they do iu this section* He does not con sider it to be much of a breeding coun try, and while they claim a fifty per cent calf crop, yet forty per cent would be nearer the figure. Kansas and Texas he claims, must continue to breed the cattle to be matured to beef in that vast region, or at least about 60 per cent of the stock turned off to market from the northern ranges. Ranch properties, although nu merous, are pretty well taken up even in that far off country; some of which was stocked as early as fifteen years ago.

The Virginia <-ity Chronicle of the 9th says: Last night two men, who were prowling aiouud iu the Balti more mine at American Flat, got scared nearly out of the township by queer sites in an old drift. They went into the mine for the purpose of seeing whether there was ore enough in sight to profitably extract on tribute. Climb ing into a stope, they heard the click of hammers, and were much surprised as they supposed no one had been there for years. Following up the sound, they were astonished to see two striking hammers hard at work on the nead of » rusty drill, which was being deftly turned by unseen hands, and though not a soul was in sight but themselves, they heard a lively con versation,» but could make out no words. They looked and listened for some minutes, when fear took bold of them, and they got out of the mine quickly. At the toll-house they relat ed their experience and were laughed at, but to prove that their heads wen clear they conducted a couple of skep tics to the spot and found the ham mers still at work. The men insist that they did not dee* ive themselves, and those who went with them say that the above statements are facts. D M. REESE, CONTRACTOR AND BUILDER STORE FITTING A SPECIALTY.
