The present month compared with the same last year shows a wide contrast. Last March was a winter mouth in every sense of the word, and was a ha:rd one on ranlge stock, while whllat 1ha ip'tst of the presenlt mouth cotld not be more favor. able for' thlle. C.attle onel yoar iago could not be drlven over ten milles a day, they were so weak, but we venture the asser. thion that they could be run that far now withllot injury. On the 17th of last .March 3,00 Iiead were driven across the Missourl on the ice. Tile same date this year there v' is not a vestige of lee in that strieatlll. O()tilher than natural, we ve ituro to say the loss will not exceed one per cent., If the wealther is at till favorable from this out. Ileports f'ront other sections are equally as flattoring, and the outlook Is better tlha at any time for the past five or six years, so say old stocklten. We appund reports fromlt other sections as reported Iby the l)papers: lForlt Maclid Galzotte: A stocklllan i the I'iicller Creek coulltry, speaking of the clattle, the winltter, anid the prospecti, saws: "St'$ck haive wintered ill this dis. trt't wonderfully well, that is old range cattle pilgrhynu got a ba:d deal. lMange alttle art' juttt 11)0 per centt in better fix than they were ai yetr ago, and I will gallllle tuhat tihe loss up to date is a mere lltthing.
