BREEDING ANGORA GOATS.
Profitable Industry Recently Tnnti un
rated In Several Southern States.
The raising of Angora goats Is an
ndustry which may soon be establish-,
id In the nearby State of North Caro
Ina. A tract of land was recently
purchased In Cumberland County by a
S'orthcrn man who proposes to breed
ind keep such animals for the lino
rleld of valuable tleece wjjlch they an
Iu Texas Angora goafs have been,
ultlvated for some years, and Farm
tud llanch, an agricultural paper pub-,
Julied In the Lone Star State, says'
'here are 76,000 of the animals within
ts borders, while nearly fifty tons of(
Iholr fleece, commercially known as
aiohalr, was shipped last year from
Uvalde alone. It now sells nt prices
ranging from 25 to 5 cents n pound'
for average grades, while bouio of tlio,
rery finest quality not yet marketed Is
jxpectotl to command 40 cents. Not
nly Is the fleece of considerable value,
out the hides and flesh are also said'
to bo In active demand.
Apparently there Is an excellent op
portunity for many American farmers
in the raising of Angora goats. It 'Is
isserted that these animals can bo
Itept at much less expense than sheep,
while their tleece is of far greater value
(linn wool. It requires a dry cllmato
ind short grnss, while a country of
broken and hilly nature, with scrubby
Iree growths. Is well adapted to Its re
quirements. The statement Is also
made that breeding the Angora with
the common goat produces an anlmnl
Df greater size than tho latter, while
the fleece Is soon graded up to a profit
Mohair, ns is well known, Is a long
ind silky product which Is employed In
(he manufacture of many costly fab
rics. There nre at present nearly i!50,
D00 of tho pure Angoras In the United
Btates, lift If their value Is hereafter
generally appreciated by agriculturists
there Is no doubt that this number will
be largely Increased. Animals which
nre easier to raise than sheep and
which nt the same time yield greater
returns nre sure to become more num
erous on our farms wherever climatic
and other conditions are conducive to
their culture. Ilaltlmoro Herald.

In opening up the Montana depart
ment in The New Age, it is with the
belief that our colored people of the
stato should have some means where
by their opiuius concerning public
events might be expres-ed. Wu ho
lievu that they will appreciate an
organ whereby they may air their
grievances, and have a champion
through which they can voice their
approval or disapproval of any of tho
various public iUestions that atl'ect'
them, whether they bo of a nature
political, religious, social or what
not. It is tho same here in Montana
as anywhere elso in these United
States, conditions are scarcely better,
numerous avocations, numbers of
avenues are closed against us from
prejudice. The industrial question
is one of great importance to us
throughout tho state. Individual
agitation does not avail. Hut should
tlio thousands of coloied people
scattered throughout the towns and
hamlets of tho stato concentrate their
ell'orts for rectifying theto griuvances
no doubt hut what conditions will
have a decided change.
It is to this end that Tho New Ago
places its columns at the disposal of
tho colored people of tho state trust
ing that the loyalty of the race will
uphold it in every rightful endeavor.
All questions of any moment can be
thoroughly discussed through tho
medium of our columns, by our read
ers and wu trust they will avail them
selves of tho opportunity.
Wo have received substantial en
couragement from some of the leading
business linns of Helena. Firms
who bcliovo in tho idea of reciprocity,
knowing that they receive a goodly
share of tho colored patrougae, they
say that lieiug good paying customers
they wish not only to retain those
they huve, but to gain more. Tho
readers of these columns will confer n
pleasurable favor upon Tho New
Age by patronizing those who adver
tise with lis. The colored people of
Helena pluce into the coffers of its
merchants thousands of dollars
monthly, and this fact is appreciated
by u number of them, whilst others
take it us u mutter of course.
