The Condon Co. TAKE PRIDE IN THEIR RANCHES Ranchers Take Advantage of Law to Designate Holdings by Name— More Should Do So. Ten of Musselshell county's ranchers and farmers have thus far taken ad vantage of the new law providing for the registration of appropriate names to designate their holdings. The cus tom is a sentimental one as well as practical, and it is hoped that many more farmers will have their farm names enrolled in the ranch name register at the court house before an other year comes to a close. Regis tering the name gives the applicant ex clusive right to the same, after which it can not be used by anyone else in the same county. The registration fee is only one dollar wh,ich also in cludes a beautiful lithographed cer tificate giving the description of the land and the ranen name. The following is a list of the names that have been registered up to the present time: "Meadow Glen Farm," W. W. Fel ker, Musselshell. "Pinehurst," J. H. Johnston, Round up. "Pine Island Ranch," C.

THE OLDEN MISTLETOE RITE. Origin of Present Use of the Classic Plant. The druids at Yuictidu used to cut the mistletoe to pince upon their altars with elaborate ceremonies. Their name for it was all heal or all healing. There was a large procession, headed by the druiillcal priests, with bards Hinging canticles and hymns; then a herald preceded three druids, fur nished with implements I'or severing the sacred plant, then the prince or chief of the druids, accompanied by all ids followers. Tile chief mounted the oak and with a golden knife detached the mistletoe and presented it to the priest, who re ceived and hore away the branches wit Ii great reverence Two white hulls were sacrificed during the rite. On the first day of the new year Hie branches alter resting on the altars in the interval were distributed among the people as a sacred and holy plant, the druid priest crying, "The mistle toe for the New Year."

Currants will, in most situations, produce fair crops of fruit, even after the most trying win ters. and it is commonly believed that the only protection protection they 'need is to be planted in some shelter ed place where the snow will collect about the buslu s. On the other hand, gooseberries frequently suffer from winter injury and the vines might be profitably protected. The only pro tection necessary is to bend the bush es down to the grt und and weight them down with a little soil. Held down in this way they will collect the snow and the fruit buds will pass thru the winter safely. In fact any of our bush fruits which prove tender in a given locality may be saved by a slight protection of earth. Enough dirt to holfi the vines down near the ground is sufficient, and too heavy a covering may be as injurious as no protection. O. B.
