If this open weather continues much
longer our stockmen will have hay to
burn inthe spring.
It isn't a good idea to let bulls run
with the herd all the time , us we have
frequently pointed out , but many people
ple do it.
The report of Secretary Preuitt , of
the Montana Stock Growers' associa
tion , shows that 208,498 head of cattle
were shipped out of the state and in
spected at the various market centers
in 1899. This was the smallest num
ber since 1892. During the past yeor
about 50,1100 cattle were shipped into
the state , of which 1,844 were pure
In looking over the brands allowed
in Cherry county , we notice the ab
sence of several old timers' names ,
caused by neglect in complying with
the law by sending in their applica
tions. We are sorry for them but they
have no one bui themselves to blame if
they lose their old familiar brand The
state board will meet again in March ,
about the 20th.
Another bunch of 100 head of cattle
were sent over by the O'Xeill Ditch
Company , yesterday , that swell their
total number to 750 head. On a hnsty
estimate this makes over 2000 head of
feeders now being fed in this end of
the county besides the large number of
hogs and still there seems to be a large
surplus of feed. Another year Uoyd
countv will market double the cattle
and hogs that are now beinir fed
Lynch Journal.
In the steppes of Russia is a vast
range where large numbers of cattle
graze. This range is covered with
snow six months in the vear. It is said
that the glare of the snow makes the
cattle blind , so to circumvent this a
rich ranchman has invented a snow
glass , which is heldin'plactrby straps
over the catties' eyes. It is claimed
that 40.000 cattle ore thus spectucled.
What a spectacle this would be ! Drov
ers' Journal.
It will not be long now until the cen
sus enu iierators will be around asking
questions , and if stockmen would only
make a classi"cation of their stock in
advance , much time and trouble would
be sored. It is especially important
that the number and kinds of young
stock be properly reported so that when
the figures are published the country
may know how the stock stands. Here
tofore the government figures have
been of but little benefit by the time
they were published , and it is proposed
to rush matters through this time.
It is announced that a contract has
just been made by St. Paul and Minne
apolis shippers with the Northern Pa
cific Railway Company for the trans
portation of 9,000 horses from the
ranges on the Pacific slope to the Twin
cities. It will take over 330 cars of im
proved pattern , capable of holding
twenty-five horses each , to fill the or
der. The animals are said to have
been bought for from $7 to 7.50 per
head , but when all expenses are paid it
will take a selling price of rather more
than $35 .v head before there will be
any profit on the deal.
A number of herds of cattle in the
sand hills are affected by the itch ; in
fact , very few herds are absolutely free
from the disease. While very few ani
mals die from its effects yet there is no
denying that cattle do not thrive
whilst in this condition and in all cases
the animals present a ragged appear
ance , and in some cases their looks arc
extrmely loathsome , bemjj almost de
nuded of hair and emaciated in llesh.

Earl Comstock , one of the managers
for the Richards & Comstoe.k outfit , was
in town this week , and in talking of
the itch said his company used a dip
which was proving very successful ,
named chloro-naphtholeum. A 10 per
cent solution , he says , never fails to
cure , and it also keeps flys away in
The State Brand Commission fin
ished its labors at Lincoln , last week ,
and recorded about 1706 different
brands on the state hook. Cherry
county easily led the slnte in the num
ber of brands and marks applfed for ami
recorded , having about JJ80 applications
in , mosttif".which- recorded.
commission experienced fewer difficul
ties in allowing the marks than was ex
pected , and their work seems to give
general satisfaction. It is probable ,
however , that a roar will go up soon
from those who neglected to apply for
marks under the new law , many of
whom will consequently be unable to
secure'the use of their old brand. Hereafter -
after brands .will be allowed according
to the date of application , instead of
the date of their old certificate.
A short time ago T. B. Swan sold to
J. M 13arto his flock of 800 head of
sheep , for a cash consideration of $1300
and the payment of a $2000 mortgage
held by the Maverick Bank. Mr. Bar-
to last week contracted the sheep to Al
Powell , a South Omaha commission
man. Before thr sheep were delivered
to Powell , Jack Perry , of the linn of
Perry Bros. , commission men of Oma
ha , appeared in Gordon and claimed to
hold a first mortgage of $1350 against
GOO of the above muttuns. lie employed
\V. W. Wood as his attorney , who re-
plevined the sheep for Perry. The cle-
fense"'claim the above sheex > are not the
ones on which Perry held a mortgage ,
many of which have died , and the re
mainder having been shipped to Perry.
The Ma1 e * ick Bank replevined the
sheep from Perry and the } ' were ship

tion has been laid for a lively "wool-

We notice in the press reports of the
National Live Stock Association , held
in Fort U'orth , Texas last week that
President Springer was authorized to
appoint a committee from , the western
states and territories to frame a bill to
be presented to congress in conformity
with the appended resolution relating
to the leasing of the public lands :
"Whereas , The vast area of public
lands no v being occupied and used by
the stockmen of the west for grazing
lands , are without the management and
control of any authority with power
and facilities to' protect and regulate
the1 same and ,
' * Whereas , Siid lack of control has
led to the overstocking of many of the
ranges , thereby destroying the sod and
large tracts of public lands to the detri
ment of the national government as
well as to the stockmen , and ,
"Wl-ereas , We believe that the people
ple interested in stock raising are ca
pable of determining the most whole
home plan for the management of the
public ranges and for the correcting of
existing evils , and ,
"Whereas , The stoc'\men feel that
justice demands that they should be
consulted in all matters pertaining to
national legislation affecting the public
ranges of the west on which they have
lived-and made their homes for years ;
therefore , be it
"Resolved , That it is the sense of
this convetion that the arid and semiarid -
arid public lands in the western slates
and territories .shoiil.l be classilied. ap
praised and lea > o l Lo the . * > to"k raisers
of the we > t for glazing purposes under
fixed limitation * giving preference al
ways to the occupants of said lands. "
We presume that th ; bill so prepared
will provide for the leasing of these
lands , subject to homestead entry , in
which case stockmen will be amply
protected against all but actual settlers ,
as the provision that those now occupy
ing or using the Kind will be given first
chance to lease will protect them from
speculators and blackmailers.
Away out in Hitchcock county there
is a paper which its editor says is
"hot. " If "hot" means vulgar , the ad-1
jc'ctive is properhused. . The editor ;
sneers at Christianity and poses as the
only simon pure article of goodness in
the community. He scores immorality
and UFCS all the cuss words in his paper
that the law will allow. He blames the
churches because in Europe 3,000,000
men are taken from civil life and are
kept under arms and praises McKSn-
ley for killing Filipinos and increasing
the number of "regular" soldiers in the' '
United States. Though Mrs. Bryan'j
secured the donation of $75,000 fori
Lincoln's public library , he scores !
Bryan because he was not wealthy' '
enough to donate $20,000 for a site .forj
the building. Perhaps this is 'the only j
way to become a "hot" editor , but if !
so , we don't hanker after a reputation
as o'ne of. thot class. - - . . '
