hlien it is considered with what difficulty.
and expense conatiuinication, travel and

Territory of Montana and the rest of the
world, it seems marvellous that any one
should conme here to stay at ill. The route
by the Mi.souri river boats and Fort Bentoli
is tedious and precarious, by reason of the
low water, which stops navigatntiti aiways
before it is desired, and irequ.ntly before it is
expected to do so. 'Ihe only other route now
employed is the road which leaves Corinne.

I purpose to speak briefly of tltese reserves of
power, and particularly to the effect which
the estallishmeunt of railroad cowmnnmication
will have in stimulating their development.
First and fundamental are the agricultural
r' capa.flea of Montana. A region which dries
n6t produce its own foo< naust canry on
every other industry at a fearful disadvall
Strage. 1 know that the wonderful State of
Nevada will be quoted as an exam ple ol
prosperity based almost exclusively upon
mining ; but this illustratin really supports
my propositton. It is not true, by the way,
that there is no agrieuure in Nevada ; still
less that an extensive agriculture may not
hereafter arise in the valleys of thath Stats
L, The sterility of the sage-brush country is ani
d exploded supe stition. Th4 land lacks only
y water; and irrigation has already in many
t places produced wondel . But granting that
Nevada has been hitherto, and will long con
- tinue to be, devoted chiefly to mining, and
that fbood a well as other supplies have been'
imported into the miuing districts, it is a no
torious fact that this condition of atflirs has
"cripphd the wining industry from thu be
ginning. The profits of the mines havebeen
nmuch smaller than they would othetwise be;
t scanty and wranderlug populationt hbasuade:
Iabor both dear and hard to control; and I
fAiuly the uIt llain of timaIn4ustry have i
mainly gone out of the State, leaving behind I

those of early days, when, htlia e of the tirst
wanters of the placer mines there, the Mor
wlon. waginers demutsded $80 fo' fiour per

hzushel, or about 2 1-2 cents per pound; and
ttith til the growthlpf the production dilrisng
the last few years, the supply has not yet elx
ceeded tie home demand. Probably there is
no other region hi the Uhtied States at
present where such indutcemente are held out
to rarmers as in this Territory. Many io
milgranits are coming in now, in the good old
tashioned way. with teartis and wagdfis and
wives and babies, to locate in the valleys of
Montana. But it is a long and tedious
journey; anid, at the end of it, one is shut
out from the worlki. Make Montana as ac

she tide will come in grandly. Now it is but

Inherited Inebriation.
Dr. Brown, a well known English writer
on insanity, says:
The drunkard notonly enfeebles and weak
ens his own nervous system, btit entails
meutal diseases upon his tntrily.
The author of an elaborate article in the
eighth volume of the British Psychologylcol
Journal in describf'iga class of persons fond
of intoxfeathng drinks, says:
They are offspriiigs of persons who have
iiguld in Rthaulat
ed the cerebral orgunzatons by vicious ha
bits.
Mr. Darwvin says:
It is remarkable that all the diseases aris
ing from drinking spirituous or fermented li
quors are liable to btcomne hereditary, even
to the third generation, inereas.ig, if the
cause be continued, till the family betoirte
extinct.
Dr. Elam. a London physician. in a recent
work upon Physical Degenetacy, writes of
the ef'icts of alcohol, as tollows:
All this, fearful as it is, would be of trifling
importance did the punishment descend only
on the individuals connected. and terminated
there. Unfortunately this is not so. for there
Is no pliase of humanity in which hereditary 1
influence is so mnarked and characteristic as
in this. The children unquestionably do sut
fer from the sins ot the parenit, eean unto un
told generations. And thus the evil spreads
from the individual to the Iamily, from fami
ly to community, and to the population a
large.
