Barnard Foote in Northwest Mag azine: Existence in an isolated mining camp is not without its drawbacks. If you have a spark of interest in any other part of the world, you cannot for bear a shade of the "green and yellow" sentiment, when you think of your mail lying at the nearest point on the rail road, fifty or perhaps a hundred miles away, awaiting the oft'times uncertain movements of the stage. It is certainly mortifying to the spirit to read in a week-old newspaper of startling casu alties and political, social and moral up heavals, which have already ceased to interest the world at large, and to real ize that you are stirred by the very last ebb of the subsiding wave of sensation. It is harrowing, too, to know that great events have transpired, that polit ical conventions or elections have taken place and candidates are successful or defeated, while you remain in harassing ignorance of the result for days. Yet in time you come to care hut lit tle how the outside world wags, and submitting to the inevitable, center all your interest in the daily bulletins of prospects, developments and sales in the different camps of the district, and so construct a very satisfactory little world of your own, for the time. If your location is in some one of the romantic mountain regions in the Pa cific Northwest, you may even become so enamored of the fine healthfulness and freedom of life among the pine clad summits, as to look with compassion upon dwellers amid the restraints of civilization, and feel a wrench of some thing like regret when the day arrives which ends your sojourn in the happy land of ducking suits and hob-nailed shoes, and recalls you to the domain of "biled" shirts and the tyranny of Mrs. Grundy once more. For here, indeed, has life a charm for the poet, the artist, the philosopher. It is like being born anew each morning to stand in your cabin door and see the first rays of the sun tint the dark sum mits thousands of feet above you; to watch the line of light creep downward until Old Sol himself appears above the intervening mountains and looks down upon your humble roof; to see the gray blanket of log, which has rested all night above the valley a thousand feet below you, turn white, then rosy, and finally drift upward and disappear, revealing a vast expanse of meadow and river and far-off mountains bathed in an enchanted atmosphere of blended blue and silver. There is grandeur, too, in looking off at noon, when the heavens are disap pearing behind piles of dazzling white cumuli—whose shadows blacken great patches on the sides of the opposite mountains—and seeing a storm break through some distant gap and trail its gray-white vastness past you in the valley, while all around is sunshine. The soul of man cannot hut reflect somewhat of its environments, and stunted and blind in spirit must he he who can stand above the thunder and look down upon the lightning and the tempest without saying exultingly, "I am greater than all of these." It must have been amid such sur roundings that the writers of the sub lime old hymns received their inspira tion, for I have seen men, even desti tute of any suspicion of piety, stand spell-bound in the presence of Nature's magnificence, or burst forth in a noble strain of Doxology, Te Deum or Amer ica. If the latter hymn, by the way, had never been written, it seems to me it must instantly occur to any American on beholding for the first time the view from some of the lofty summits of the continent. I am sure I should have been the author of it myself under such inspiring circumstances if another had not anticipated me. The wind that sweeps these altitudes hears no taint of earth except the odor of the pine trees. The everlasting snows are scarcely purer or colder than the spring at which you drink. The dogs may plunge into it, the horses dip their muzzles, or the deer steal down to it by night, but the ceaseless current gushing from the fis sure in the granite walls keeps it always full and limpid. A thousand fragrant wild flowers— roses, syringas, lilies—here bloom in the rankest perfection and fade unnoticed. Wild berries ripen and fall from their stems ungathered, save by flocks of grouse and pheasants. The mountain streams swarm with trout, and fat creatures of the chase are everywhere, and wild almost to tameness. Such is tha "forest primeval" of the northwest mountain region. A land of rugged health and boundless freedom, of lofty peaks and lovely valleys, of giant timber and dashing streams; a park for the poor, the sick and the little children of all the cities of the earth. Would that some magician might transport them hither for a holiday, and would that I and all men, when fretted in spirit and world a-weary, might ily to the uplifting presence of these everlasting hills to inhale the pure breath of heaven and find health of soul and body in the land above the clouds. The Prospectors of Nevada. The following from the Virginia City (Nevada) Chronicle of August 25,1873, is republished by request, and will no doubt be of interest to our readers: As I Bit here writing, I see before me the glar ing. barren sides ef huge mountains, rising in semi-circular ranges behind the little town, their tops covered with 6now, their fronts bare of all vegetation, except the stunted, foul-smsUinjj and useless wild sage.—Eastern Cor. from Humboldt Wells, Nev. On a plain both bleak and drear, 'Round a spring were gathered near— Four miners. Two were youngsters, blythe and bold; The other two were tough and old Four timers. I No parlor ornaments were they, Good uien to drink, if not to pray— These four. Their ethics was, to do what's fair, And always act upon the square— No more. Traces of wear their garments bore. The only ornaments they wore Were Colt's improved. These last had triggers neatly tuned, Ready to kill, or maim, or wound, With barrels grooved. These four upon a prospect were — Their kind are ever on the stir And going. Hard their life, but warm their hearts, Their mission here to seek for quartz— Ore showing. In vain the younger one he tried To light a fire, but could not hide His rage. At last with oaths his anger burst, And vehemently then he cursed— The sage. Across the old man's face there came Something like a look of pain And grief, And in words both true and brave To his injured feelings gave Relief. Said he, Young man, curse not the brush— The plant we all revere. Listen to me while I repeat, Its virtues we hold dear. Upon the baldest head 'twill cause The hair to grow and sprout. The boldest skeptic e'er will pause Ere this fact he will doubt. Whenever fever racks the brain Of either youth or age. The remedy of greatest fame Is that famed cure, the sage. And one variety, called white, Ranks far ahead of schools: It makes herds frantic with delight, Makes officials of fools. And when it comes to baking, What fuel can compare? It needs but little raking To keep it bright and clear. Boys, when this life is over, Änd I turn my last page, Then plant me not in clover, But 'neath the long loved sage. R. R. Official Returns.

South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Washington. On February 22nd, 1881), the President signed the bill creating South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, and Washington states of the Union. South Dakota.— The great Prairie State, to which the St. Paul, Minneapolis <te Manitoba Railway has three main lines, reaching Ellen dale, Abeideen, Huron, Watertown, and Sioux Falls. Go to South Dakota via the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba Railway and pass through St. Paul and Minneapolis en route. North Dakota.— Where is known the No. 1 Hard Scotch Fife Wheat ; whose healthful climate nurtures the most vigorous and brainy civilization on earth ; where single counties raise more wheat, oats and barley than entire states ; the 6oil of whose fertile prairies are richer than the valley of the Nile; where the Turtle Mountain, Minot and Devils Lake land districts invite the home seeker to secure a free home. Magnificent daily train service to Fargo, Grand Forks, Grafton, Devils Lake, Bottineau, and all other important points. Montana the Golden.— Treasures in her njines of precious metals; wealth in her 4,000,000 head of live stock ; profit in her fertile fields, producing a larger yield of crops than any other state or " territory ; the richest country per inhabitant on earth; where prosperity is uni versal; which has the best paid labor in the world; a balmy winter climate, caused bv warm winds from the Pacific. The St. Paul Minnea polis & Manitoba Railway is the only railroad passing through a continuous agricultural coun try from St. Paul and Minneapolis te the Rocky Mountains. It runs through the Great Reserva tion of 18,000,000 acres of land, free to settlers, in the Milk River Valley. Wood, water, and coal in abundance; no irrigation required: the only line passing through Great Falls, with Its 1,000,000 horse-power cataracts ; immense coal veins, and surrounding farming country of free land, through Helena the capital city and commercial centre of Montana, and Butte, the richest mining camp on earth, to San Francisco by the Colum bia River Valley, Portland and Shasta Route, or Ogden, Utah, to California points. Remember this is the onlv line running dining cars, sleep ing cars and free colonist sleepers of its own from St. Paul and Minneapolis to Great Falls, Helena and Butte. It is also the shortest line to Butte. Washington —The country of tall timber, in dented by Puget Sound, the Mediterranean of the Pacific. Do not forget that the St. Paul, Minnea polis & Manitoba Railway is the only line which offers a choice of theee routes to the Pacific Coast. The Manitoba-Pacific route is the oniy line by which passengers en route for Tacoma, Portland and San Francisco can pass through Port Town send and Seattle. Free colonist sleepers run through without change or delay. Distance to the Pacific Coast is same as by other lines, but prices of tickets are five and ten dollars less. Take the Seattle route.
