A Good Opinion of Montana.
M. R. 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. Yet
there are some good locations, rather iso
lated, and in the Bad Lard country,
which is poorly watered, yet covered with
an abundance of feed. As a beef-produc
ing country, be thinks Montana is tin
boss.—Fort Worth Live Stock Journal.
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.
