that of the who the can O. X PAYNE, - ■ ■ . Editor axu Fromirtor. Saturday Morning, Jan. 12, 1889. SIX YEARS AND OUT. Suppose an amendment to the constitution making the Presiden tial term six years and barring a re-election should be sent to the people with the recommendation and approval of Congress. How do you think the ten or twelve millions of voters between Maine and California—whose rep resentatives would have to pass on its ratifications—would meet the question. Can there be any doubt that an over-whelming majority would re gard it as a magnificent measure of reform? The working classes would favor it to a man, because when manu facturing interests are disturbed they bear the brunt of the calam of of ity. Every merchant would favor it because ho stands in dread of this quadrennial cataclysm. He just gets his plans laid for a commercial enterprise when, presto, change! one administration with one policy is kicked out and another administra tion with another policy is shoved He doen't know for a few | of in. months whether he is financially on his head or his heels. He drives a team with a pretty heavy load. Give him a macada mized highway for six years and he is all right. Compel him to team it through a mud hole every four years, with a possible upset and the loss of all his freight, and you keep him anxious, cramp his efforts and make him timid. In every part of the Union the newspapers are discussing this top ic. They see the advantages of a longer term and approve of it. There is a general consensus of opinion and a general heartiness and enthusiasm, for it seems to solve a very bitter problem. Allow us to add that the only class that grow red in the face is the professional politicians, would rather interfere with their perquisites. But really the country is not run for the sole benefit of these gentlemen, and if they should happen to take a back seat for awhile there would be very little weeping and gnashing of teeth on the part of the public.— N. Y. Her ald. It The following is a good thing to carry with your outfit in the cold weather, when either hunting or prospecting: "Make a bag of brown duck six feet long, three feet wide in the cen ter, sixteen inches wide at the foot, two feet at the head. Leavo one seam of the hag open from the head two feet downward, and sew along one edge of the flap three or four inches wide, with button holes in it at intervals. Buttons or toggles may be sewed on the other edge. To the head of the hag sew two flaps a foot long with button holes and buttons, so that the Haps may be buttoned over the head. Line this hag with another made of lamb skin with the wool on, the wool be ing covered, however, with cotton cloth to keep the wool from touch ing the person or clothing. In such a bag a man can defy a blizzard. NOTICE. All those knowing themselves in debt to me must settle by the 15th of Jan uary, as I will turn my books over for collection.

Hays of Silver City is being mentioned by the press of the Territory as an ac ceptable and deserving Idahoan, who would do honor to the Gem of the Mountains and to the republi can party as Governor under Presi dent Harrison's administration. Mr. Hays is e<L;or of the Idaho Ava lanche and is also an experienced attorney. He posseses all the quali fications and stamina of character, that honesty of purpose and dignity which becomes the position. He is President of the Idaho Press Asso ciation and withal one of the popular citizens of the Territory that all would dp-light to honor.—Shoshone Journal. A ARTESIAN WKI.U3 IN SONOMA. A few weeks ago, according to the Weekly Bulletin, "a fine How of ex cellent water was struck at a depth of 90 feet, on a lot a littlo to the cast of the town of Sonoma, Cal afomia, belonging to Mr. Gilbert. The next attempt was made at Mr. Winkles vineyard, when at a depth of 82 feet a flow of 90,000 gallons per day was obtained. The tools were then moved about 150 feet south to the lands of J. Gundlach, whore still greater success was met with. At a depth of 110 feet a flow | of 100,900 gallons per day was reach ed. Both these wells are located in a is of the foot hills, considerably above the level of the valley and supposed ly in a very unlikely place to find such a result. The tools penetrated successive layers of sand, rock and clay, the water comes out with con siderable force, and will overflow a pipe 20 feet above the surface. The fortunate owners of these wells con sider them worth not less than <10, 000 apiece. The temperature of the water is constantly at 72° F., and what is remarkable is that it is ex actly the same as that of several springs on the other side of the val ley, four or five miles away. A writer in discussing the advis ability of cultivating long haired cattle particularly for the western 'Out wcBt on the ranges, says: ranges the well-haired cattle suit the situation best, and are there fore most sought after. Wo un derstand that at present an experi ment is being made in a western state with a Buffalo-Galloway cross and that a very heavy coat of hair has been produced on the pro Ii is this coat of hair that geny. the experimentor is after, as he thinks his cross will be the best yet While to or it be for found on the range for use. we do not altogether agree with him as to the suitability of his strange cross, we certainly agree with him entirely as to the advantage of pro ducing a heavy coat of hair. There Is a practical suggestion to all breeders in this new departure. It is to cultivate heavy coatB on pure bred beef cattle for their better pro tection against the rigors of the cold winters." Sioux county, Iowa, comes proud ly to the front with a grandmother only 25 years of age. She was mar ried at the age of 11 years. Her daughter married at the age of 12, and is now, at 13, a mother. A guard will he stationed around the cradle of the infant granchild to prevent her from eloping, as it is rumored that several enterprising yearlings are badly mashed on her.
