Now parties are now coining In about the rale of one a week. Any dozen or two dissatisfied men can form a new party. Tnere la no law In the land against such pro ceedings. It is reported In Virginia that the Democratic leaders there are much alarmed at the largo number of now, people from the North' who have set tled In the "boom towns." Most of them are Republicans, and as the slate gave Cleveland ouly 1,500 mp'orlty In 1883, It is feared that the now-couiers may give the Republicans the stale lu a Presidential year. Tun 'St. Louis Glohe-Demoarat expresses the opinion that "the Republican party needs only two things to make Its success in 1892 Ufctjiolutely certain, to wit: The 'election of Mills to the Speakership i and the nomination of Cleveland for tlin Prosiilptinv."

Thoroisthe same dearth o fruit trees. How rarely Is a farm well supplied with npple, cherry, peach, plum, aud pear trees, and yet it Is possible to have them all, or at least such of thorn i are adapted to theloca'lty, it a tritliug outlay of money and time. Why should not every farmer have a sma'l garden plot devoted to the cultivation of strawberries, raspberries, cuirau , gooseberries and blackberries? Many farmers have not a single one of the fruits nauied growing on their premises. Flowers are considered a nuisance, aud thus many farms, for lack of such little attention aid expense, are permitted to remain ex posed and desolate looking, aneyesoie to the passer-by, aud u positive dis credit to their owners. Apart from the comfort of having a good supply of shade aud fruit trees, Is profit iu the fruit they yield; not only protlt, but health and positive enjoyment In tho possession and plentiful uso of fruit, whether for home consumption or market. In n word, tho farmer who neglects to plant fruit trees aud cult' vato small fruits on his prem ises, is one who has small regard either for his own family's comforts. More than that, he lo-iei sight of the fact that a farm well stocked with tree of the kind named, and with a well filled small fruit garden, will always command a better price when ofleitd for sale than one devoid of them.

Tho Herald herewith publishes an in teresting article, with ltfo-like Illustration, of the famous Mountain Moadow Massacro which was tho most outrageous and blojd thirsty massacre over perpetratod upon our benutiful land of tho freo. In 1857 A colony of emigrants stinted out across tbo sterilo plains for the distant gold lands of California. They woro of every croed, and many woraon and child ren woro in tho party. At Mountain Meadow, a short diftanco boyoud Cedar City, Utah, they woro attackod, as they thought, by a band of hostilo Indians. Ttseir wagons wero quickly corralled us a barricade for the protection of their families and stock. Thus they held the attacking party at . bay. Kvory heart leaped with joy at Itlio thought that their little party was strong enough to hold such a formidable foe at bay. But, alas, they discovered, when too lato, that they we.o tbo far frou water, and the Indians had cut ofT their only resource For four daye they lay in their corral of death, under coyer of thoir enemies' guns, not daring to eond any one to tho spring, which was in plain sight. On the fourth doy a fUg of truce was raised by tho attacking party, and envoys wero font by each party and a settlement made tho emigrants wero to give up their arms and Join the Mormon colony. No sooner were tholr arms delivered th n John D. Loo, Mormon Elder, and in com mand of tho attacking party, who were mostly Mormons disguised as Indians, or dered the men all to ono sldo, and delib erately shot them down like dogs, tho woraon and childron being taken captives. The awful agony which ront tbo hearts of mothers, wives, sisters and brothers can bettor bo Imagined than described hero. John D. Loo was captured and tried for rourdor, convicted and bung for the awful rolo ho played. Two years later, General Carlton visllcdthe spot and burled tho bleached bones of 120 noblo pioneer heroes in ono gravo, raising a monument appro priately inscribed to tbo same. By visiting Tawnco Bill's Wild Wott you will too an oxact reproduction of this fearful tragody enacted by daring frontier horses, Indian fighters, bravo scouts and genuine Sioux Indians, with all tho acces sories of savago life tholr war clubs nnd war instruments, their same war garmonts and grolssquo painting as whenjthoy were enacting those tragedies in real life. It will convey to tho mind of tho spectator a moro vivid and lasting impression of tho hardships, dangers and endurance suffered In the early settlement of our vast Wild West than could bo learnod in reading all tho literature over written on tho subject.
