"Silver coins of the denominations
quarter4ollars and half-dollars are requi t ed
to be made of a certain weight and fineness,

by the Treasury in exchange for lawful

thereof. In the case of gold coins 'the law
is that when reduced in weight below the
standard they are good tender at a propor

made for silver coins. If such a coin has
had an approcks' ble amount,of silver removed
from it we cannot say that it remains a good
coin for its original value, or even . for pro.

not consider it a 4:riminal act, whatever the
intention may have been, to add base metal
to good coin, and we see no ground for hold
ing that a hole punched through a coin with
a sharpinstrnment, crowding the silver into
a dig:loly different shape, but leaving it all
in the coin, has any effect to render it less
valuable or less lawfql tender than before.
The, statutes are less silent upon this exact

they, were engaged to be married. , Tho
ranchero, an extremely handsome 'iionih,
bought a pair of ponies for his sweetheart
,that afternoon, and, in order to secure 6 boat
to suit him, purchased one outright, that the

A Bepresentsitive of the .Noneer' -Prue
was *WAY introokmed to a couple of gen
tlemen at' the Merchant's Hotel both of
whom were interested in stock raising, the
one in Montana, the Other , in Texas. The
Texan was on his way. to Montana with a
view to deciding for hiniselfthe advantages
that the latter offered over Texas for stock
raising. The Montana man is the junior
member of a firm, which consiribl'of himself
and brother, that are considered among the'
heaviest stock men in the Territory. They
werelhiost the piOneere in stock raising in
the Territory of
,'Monhana, having coo.
minced about sixteen years: ago. Previous
to this - they were engaged in freighting froni
St. Joseph, Mo., to Denver, CoL, mid after
ward when the railroad was completed to
that point, from Denver and, Salt Lake to
Helena, Montana Tenitory,which was then
coming into prominence mita mining camp.
These long trips were nude with mules and
cattle. Sixteen years ago the. last trip of
the season was made rather later than usual,
end, owing to delays' on the'rcwid, it became
necessary to winter in Montana.. With great
misgivings as to the result, the mules and
cattle were turned loose to find 'what sub
sistence they could for themselves_ through
the winter months. Spring' arrived, when
what was their surprise to find that the ra
de turned up in Ina'gniticenti condition, with
a sleek, well-fed look that showed they had
had no trouble in providing for themselves. '
'lt should be noticed- also that the mows
were reported that year - to be deeper than .
usual. This, in conitmetion with the fact
that all the deer and elk they killed were
found in remarkably good condition, led the .
brothers to the conclusion that there was no'
better country In the amid so well' adapted
to purposes of 'stock 'raising. Returning' to
Denver, therefore, they, sold their steers and
mules and bought stock cattle, 'which they
drove into Morita:Ur, and from that date until
now they have been among the largest stock
men in The Territory. From cattle they
Went into sheep and dm-raising of horses,
both of which latter are more profitable than
cattle.' It was stated that sheep were every
year becoming more numerous in the Terr
itory. Sheep require,more care` and atten.
tion than cattle and give correspondingly
larger results. It is also a business that re
quires less capital than it does to engado in
the raising of cattle. ,The expense of herd
ing and sharing, including herder's pay and
board for one year, for a herd of 2,000 is
about $2,000. The yield of wool will aver.
age $1 50 per head, or a total of $3,000.
The Mere* of lanibs can be calculated at
twenty-five per cent of the original number
of the herd, and, as at the end of the ,ymr
they are of equal value to a full grown
sheep, their value would be $l,OOO. The
gain, therefore, is almost one' hundred per
cent, with, ordinary attention. It is estims.
ted that there are now about two hundred
thousand sheep in the eastern part of Mon.
Lana, and the number will increiso
as new people are constantlY going into the,
business. In response to an inquiry as to;
the sheep freezingyt was stated ' that such a'
thing was unknown. It is truo there have
been losses, but in all cases death has -been
caused by suffocation, on account of the
mu having been too small, so that the
sheep have crowded together; one oii top of
the other. This causes them-to sweat, and
then when they are "turned Out inn) the cold
air in the winning they take cold and die.—
Among the strange scenes found in New
York, says the Metropolitan scribe of the
Troy Times, is the synagogue of the. prtho
do: Jews, who wear their hats during ser
vice. This is in obedience to the Mosaic
prohibition " They shall not inake baldness
on their belts?' The most 'remarkable in.
stance of going bareheaded, however, .of
which I have ever read is afforded by the
famous Dr. Johnson, the lexicographer. It
is stated that very late in life ho visited his
native town, and while there was missed by
his associates - . They subsequently learned
that his absence was occasioned by his stand.
lug bareheaded in the market place for ao
hour to atone for an act of nnfilial conduct
to his father fifty-years previous. : Thilmay
be explained by the' fact that penance is al
ways done with the uncovered head, and the
lexicographer had a great deal of the ascetic
in his nature. Hats enter :widely into the
small talk of common life. A hat is a "cady "
or a tile ;", to bet a new bat is a. popular
style of wager, and the evressiou, I'll take
your hat," indicates getting a joke in the
speaker's favor. ." What a shocking bad
hat " was once a frequent witticism of low
comedy. The bat Ida common indicator of
a man's feelings. Should he be ins state of
excitement from stimulus, he id said to have'
" a brick in his hat," while on the other hand
s weed surrounding the . latter suggests that
the bearer is supposed to be in a • sorrowful
I frame. The hat is thus the signboard of that,
ridicnlous custom falsely called " mourning." ;
Hats are not worn in Japan. A society man
indeed in that enlightened country would'
not soil his head with such a covering. AU
the protections he asks is afforded by an um
trella. Hats were ones used in tile military
service, and Napoleon would not look natural
without his clumsy chapeau, but good sense
Las now substituted the cap. The latter has
always been worn in the naval service, be.
'cause it is more easily retained during a gale;
it is better for soldiers as more convenient in
time of action. Hats have a tragio =Boole
lion, at, least in this City, inasmuch as the
Hague street calamity occurred at a hat fac
tory. This catastropue curie under my own
notice. The explosion filled the street with
ruins and nearly 100 perished. -It was the
greatest horror this City has ever. witnessed.
