IS oma black sand containing gold dust has been exhibited in Seattle this week, which is said to have been obtained in the Black Hills, not over ten miles from Olympia. Some parties propose investi gating the natter. The Upper Musselshell Valley, Mon tana, extending about 100 miles, is a fine grazing country. About $250,000 worth oi cattle and sheep are now grazing apon it. Stockmen all say it is the very finest Winter range in the Territory. There is plenty e( room and to spare for 100,000 more sheep and 50,000 or 100,000 more cattle. A sinKle sbeepberder in Aisetin county, Idaho, lost 2.0U0 out of a band of 6,000 HQeep. Another lost 400 oat ef 8u0. These losses are not se mneh the resnlt of extreme weather a to the improv idence on the part of the stock men. One of the most powerful corporations in the West is toe great stage and mail crryiug firm ol Salisbury, ttilmer & Co, Tuey uow have over 5,000 miles of daily aiage lines and employ bt-tween 6000 and 70Ut horses in Dakota and Montana. Near Fort Bedford, Montana,' there are thirty lodges of Uncapapas, at Poplar river, and eiguly lodges at Wolf Point, wbile the main bod; is encamDed at Rjclt oreek. These-Indians are" dying by starvation. They are oomtng sootu of the line, and it is aaid that they pro pose to give themselves np. The carcass of a mountain goat has' b en procured by Colonel Gibson, of Fort Missoula, Montana, for the Smith eonian Institute at Washington. The mountain goat is entirely different from the uiouutam sheep, and is very rarely found. The animal has a coat of long, wtiite hair, and a regular goat's beard. His horns are small and about seven iuches long. It would stand about two and a half feet in height and measures ttireo and a half feet in length. An acoident of an extraordinary nature Las ooourred at the Halle Theater, Aston, near Birmingham. The stage is lighted by two eieotrio lights : ana when the candles are not burning, two brass con nections, used for the purpose of cross ing the current, are hung over the orobestra. Alter the performance of the pantomime, Mr. Bruno, the euphonium player, was leaving with the other mem bers of the band, when, presumably out of curiosity, be oaugbt hold of the two brass connections referred to. The man iu charge oalled out to bim, witb the objeot oi warning him o( the danger he was incurring. The warning, how aver, came too lata. Mr. Bruae reoeived the full shock of the eieotrio ourrent generated by the powerful battery whiou supplies the wbole o( the lamps in the building and grounds. It is aaid that the oandles being not then burning, Mr. Bruno was unable to disengage himself, and pullsd the wire down. The shook reodsred bim insensible. Medical man were soon in attendance, and restoratives applied, but Mr. Bruno died in forty winutea afterward.

The value of lime to t;be farmer is so great tout, in many mountainous regions where beds of limestone rook are to bs found, it would certainly pay a farmer to occasionally burn a quantity. A seoond grade quality is as good for farm purposes as the whitest grades. The effects of lime on soil are partly mechanical and partly oheinical. If ap plied to deep alluvial, or to clay soils, it increases the product, particularly of root orops, snob as potatoes, turnips, beets, eto. If sown broadoast over grass lands, pastures or alfalfa fields, it tends to destroy the weeds and coarse grasses, while, at the same time, it improves tbe growth of the more valuable speoies. The good effects of lime on grass lands, or, if lime cannot be uroonred. oi marl. chalk aad broke'i shells, have been plainly vistDlejorj years. The farmer applies tbe term "soar soils" to soon soils as bave alkalies, or acids in combination witb amnoma, or simply various aoids, the effect ol wliich is to prevent the healthy growth of de sirable crops. Lime applied to snob soils is always an advantage. Lime aots upon tbe inorganio parts of tbe soil, such as sulphate of iron and alumni. It even ameliorates the subsoil, helping to de compose granite trap and silicate rocks. By oombiaing with tbe aoids ol the seil, it produces potash, soda and other com pounds fit for plant food. In tbe work of the farmer, lime may have other uses. Applied to piles of decaying weeds, it destroys the eermin- ating powers of the seeds; sown over the leaves of growing plants, it drives away inseots, it decomposes waste vegetable matter and it proves fatal to worms, bIurs and larvre of insects. These are practical advantages whiob ought to-be nnaerstooa oy every farmer. Tbe Chronicle says that L. B. Ander son, a former resident of Virginia Citv, writing trom Seattle, under date of Feb ruary 3d says: " I think the Skagit mines will prove a Buooess. I know a good many who bave olaims there and all speak well of the country and are going p soon again Tbe mining couutry is extensive and promises some rich devel opments in quartz. It is wooded, but hot so heavily as on the Sound. There is one sawmill now being put up. Seat tle is the place to Btart from. Steamers run from here up tbe Skagit as far as they can go, and then you take oanoes a few milts and then trail. The trail is under oontract to be cut out just as soon as possible. It will probably be done in two months. I believe the Skagit mines will prove rich. I do not knew anvthina of m; own knowledge, but I know that every man and boy in Seattle that can gat away is going. I tbink the first of May la as early as anything can be done in the mines, nnless it be to get a claim aad build a oabin, flame, or something of tbe sort. There is every Drobabililv of a rush and an old-time California ex citement. I have seen quite a good deal of dust. Some of it is quite ooarso about $9 are the largest pieces yet found. Claims are gelling at from $250 to $1,000." Not a handrail nillflB halnfjr TC.aliwilt is a curious speotaole, known as the " Sun and Mann."

As to who painted it is a mystery Wbioh waa flAVer nnravAlIn Mjn. think it was tbe work of tbe red brother, centuries ago, perhaps. But there tbe sua and the moon shine out in all tbe freshness ol new paint. They are located midway in the cliff and stand out in bold renai. as to now any on as an being ever reaohed the spot is a question which has never been solved. It is supposed that in these days they bad no giant ladders, and they could not easily bave reaohed the point from below. The nnlv natural rope of that time was wild grape vine, nf whi.l.

At any rate, these piotures are there on tho everlasting roek, and are likely to remain tor future ages. The Saltan has ten servants whoso special doty it is to nnfold the carpets for bim when he is going to pray, ten to take care of his pipes and cigarettes, two to areas nis royal hair and twenty to at tend to his most noble dean shirts.

Helton, a Baptist preaoher, of Roane county, Tenn., 88 years old, had aixteen sons in the Union araiy. and two in tbe Confederate, and thereupon becomea statistical by saying: "My sympathies were with the Union by four teen majority." The computation seems to be eharged with accuracy. The Austin Beveille scolds the people of that little oity for having job printing done in Sau Francisco.
