When Lincoln people awoke yesterday
under a cloudy sky and realized that the

broken In twain , 'llicro was a , igh of

Iliu sun has risen n hall of brass in the
cast and disappeared al night with a leer
that promised warm times for the coming
day , and through the weekscnnumoratcd
not a cloud was to be seen. It was
not strange , then , that a cloudy day was
a welcome hlght to a long sweltering
community. However , Lincoln should
not bo classed as MilVering from
the heated term , for it is the only
mineral watering place in the stato. As
a Knni.ner resort , 1'ie ' capital city should
have a front "tint , for the bree/es never

and cvclaiming against the 1-eal of llio
day , tin ) good people clear llieir throats
as though they were Inking cold and
remark concerning llio chilliness that
the salt creek wpliyrs impart
to people out of doors in
light clothing. To be .sure , the dust has
been plentiful , but then it is trom the
grists of commerce , ground by the cea-e-
less tratllc of a busy town " \Vho ever
heard of a dusty town if grass wore
overgrowing the thoroughfares. " Ho

the city lias , however , been fully up to
the average during the heated period ,

the much more rapid work of liic old

Miles City Correspondence Philadel
phia liucord : The climate of Montann
is not particularly healthy for Mormons ,
principally , I believe , because the soil
contains t-o many wideawake baenelor
cowboys who are badly in need of wives
themselves. The royal cow-punchers of
.Montana hale a Mormon male as they
do a snake. Doing unable to get a single
helpmeet themselves , although able to
support a doxen where a Mormon cannot
support one , it riles them to have some-
long hnired nucally older coino along
with lour , live , and possibly six wives ,
and settle down with the utmost gall ami
cheek on a government claim. There
are about 20,000 more bachelors in
Montana than there urn wnucil 'l' ' ' ' ° -
gelhcr. Nearly all ol these 23,000 have
splendid ranches , farms , or claims of
some kind , and need only n wife to com
plete , their cup of hanpiiiojs.
It is no exaggerntcit picture [ am draw-
inn , for the vast territory of Montana
contains innumerable bachelor homes ,
and these bachelors would make the best
of husbands if given hnif n chance. Tlio
little town of Maiden , a few miles north
of here , contains not a single unmarried
lady. The small village only ten miles
west of us is simply a community of
bachelors. These thousands of young
men , middle-aged men , and old men all
have comfortable bank accounts , and
would marry on the slightest provoca
tion , so to speak. Each one is calculated
to make some woman happy , and would
give the damsel who cared lo risk her
liituro with him all tlio ready cash she
could possibly spend in Ibis world. No
wonder our bachelors hale the Mormon
males who have more than llieir share of
female blessings.

Hints on Horse Uumlliti : ; .
American Cultivator : In training a
iclous horse it may iJbnecessnt'y at times
o put on cord bridles , but their > ise is
only temporary. While its u o is severe
mil ghcs full control of the animal by
he force it exerts on the angles of the
nouth and the upper jaw , and the ) > res-
sure on the top of his head , yet it is for
ho ultimate good of the horse and will

limself and his master , aim will also
ibollsh the necessity for such cruel
neans of pprmaiienl restraint as those
; nerciless bits that tear horse's jaw.s
ipart and mangle his gums ami teeth.
Hover bang a horse over the head or on
iiis shins witli a club or loaded whip. It
s never necessary , ami the man who
would do it deserves to be treated in the
nine way himself. Finely bred , intelli
ent horse ? arn often nervous. They are
liiick to notice , quick to take alarm ,
quick to dtf what booms to them , in mo
ment of sii'lden. terror , necessary to _ cs-
capo from possible harm from something
.hey do not understand. That is what
makes them shy , bolt and run away.
Hut the moment ho becomes familiar with
these things or any others that
liVright him , ami knows what they
are , he grows indiU'erent to them.
When , therefore , your horse shies at
anything , make him acquainted with it.
Lot him smell it , touch it with his sensa-
tive upper lip and look closely at it. Jle-
member , too , that you must familiarize
both sides of him with the dreaded object
if ho only examines it witli the near nos-
Iril and eye , ho would bo very likely to
hcaro at it when it appears on hisoll'side.
Ho , then , rattle your paper , beat your
ba > .s drum , flutter your umbrella , run
your baby-carriage and your bicycle , fire
your ] ) Mol and clatter your tinware on
both sides of your horse and all around
him , until ho comes to regard the noise
simply as a nuisance and llio material ob
jects as only trilling things. He may not
learn this all in 01113 lusson. is
llio hardesl of cipiino vices to cure. It
seems inherent in some obstinate natures.
The most practical stop to be taken with Is to trade him oil' to
somebody else. When you cannot do
that , there are various things to be
tried on ,
Hummer Feeding of
The feeder who allows his pigs a fair
amount of exercise , a variety of food in
summer , including green food , pure
water to drink ami u dark , cool , dry
place where they may retire from the
tlies and heat , usually escapes the various
epidemic diseases , the result of bad care
and tilth , that go under the common
name of hog cholera. An excellent and
careful feeder gives the following direc
tions which ho oiivs has worked well
with him ;
"There should bo skim milk for the
pigs at weaning time , and all summer ,
for that matter , when feasible. Hut
most pig raisers luiye not aknn milk to
feed , and food adapted to growing the
young pigs should bo provided. It one
is fortunate enough to be able to get
process linseed cake , he will have ono
most excellent Ingredient for a young
pig'8 ration , llio ration may bo made
as follows : Ono pound linseed meal ,
throe pounds bran , ono pound corn meal
or , in quantity , in these proportions.
This ration will contain twice the pro
portion of muscle and bone-growing looil
as corn alone. If some skim milk can
be added to the ration , then it is the bcsl
that can bo furnished to growing pigs ,
and as cheap as a ration of all corn. II
the pigs can bo allowed a good pasture
with this ration they will tirow very rap
idly , and make very superior quality ol
meat. If the pigs iim t be conlined to
pens or yards they should have green
food in the form ol grass , clover , green
puns or sweet corn delivered to then
daily in such quantities as they will cat.1

Object of the ewho go to the trouble of
planting large trees instead of little ones
! u the grounds about their dwellings or
other conspicuous places , where the
presence of Mich are required. Where
\u > rk of this kind lins to be done , it often
happens thit enough forethought is not
brought to bear on the proceeding * . In
place of taking1 the precaution of pre
viously preparing the tree bv trenching
round them , and e\ering the roots to
within a movable compass , so a to admit
of a season's growth before thov are
taken up , they aiv at once transferred
from where they have been growing for

their roots unchecked in any way ; the
result of which i , that the progress made

it is remembered how little labor cutting
into the roots as described involves.
To the too frequent ab-etico of judgment
and reasonable caiv in moving 'trees that
have led many to the conclusion that It
is better to plant Mnall trees and wait for
them to grow upe\cn in positions where
it is desirable to ha\e such a would give

kinds of a .si/e such as under notice , and
that are Intcmieii tor removal next

movement in the buds. With ev'erjjrociis
it is better to defer this work until the
time that the drying March winds arc
over , especially in eases where the trees
are large and in vigorous condition , as
with such the root-si'M-ranec necessary
is proportionally nmrc fell than with
.smaller examples.

While straw is not the bc-t fodder , it
serves u very useful ptirpo * in the econ

In time of drought , when the supply of

The evolution of the tomato is going

potash as the potato. It is an alkaline
juice that stains the hands when paring

Wlmt Baking Ponder Shall \ve I'so. .
This plain question conies home lo
very housekeeper. We all desire pure
md wholesome teed , and this cannot bo
md with the use of impure or poisoii-
nis baking powder. ' 1 here can be no
ongcr a iiuestion that all the cheaper ,
ewer grade of baking powders conlam
Mther alum , lime or phosphalie acid. As
otli as we may be to admit so much
igaiiist what may have been some of
our household gods , there can be no
pjainsaving the unanimous testimony of
ho ollicial chemists. Indeed , analysts
seem to llnd no baUtnir powder entirely
rrc from sonic one of these objection-
iblo ingredients except Hie Rojal , and
hut they report as chemically imre. We
inil some of the baking powders udvor-
iscil as pure , to contain under the tests
of Professors Chandler , llabirshaw and
others , nearly twelve per cent , of lime ,
vliilc others arc made from alum with no
cream of tartar. Tins , we presume ac
counts for their lackof leavening power
is sometimes complained of by the cook ,
md for the bitter taste found'in the bis
cuits so frequently complained of by our-
Hut aside from the inferiority r . '
work done by these powders' ' , the physiol
ogists assure us that lime yndalnm taken
nto the system in such ijuunlitios asMJ" " ! "
u'o injm.ous.Ticr ! ; . .icnioi ilucolityuscu
jy boat nor disolved in mixing or bak-
ng. They go with the bread , therefore ,
nto the stomach , where their physlojo-
, * icul ollects ; arc indigestion , dyspepsia ,
or worse evils.
The question naturally arises , why do
hcse cheap baking powder makers use
liese things ? Alum is three cents a
) ound , lime still cheaper , while cream of
artar cost thirty-live or fortv. The
cuson for the chemical purity of ( he
loyal ISaking Powder were recently
given in the Is evv York Times in an in-
eresting description of a now method for
efining tirgols , or crude cream of tartar.
t seems llial is is only under Ibis process
hat cream of tartar can be freed from
the lime natural lo It and rendered oliem-
cully pure ; that the patents and plant
for this cost the Royal Dakiii ! ' Powder
Company about : i million dollars , and
hat they maintain exclusive controlot
ho rights.
Prol. McMurtrio , late chief chemist of
he department of agriculture at Wusli-
ngtonD. C. , in the interests of com
merce , made an examination of this pro
cess , and reported upon llio results at
.ained in the 'refined cream of tartar. The
lollowing extract from his report would
seem to answer the question repeated at
.behead of this article , and winch is so
frequently propounded by the house
keeper ;
"I have examined the cream of tartar
used by the Royal linking Powder Com
pany in the manufacture of their baking
powder , and Him it to bo perfectly pure ,
and free trom Jime in any form. The
chemical tests to which I have Mibm.tled
the Royal linking Powder prove it 'per '
fectly healthful , and free from every
deleterious substance , "
