For the past week the weath
er lias been extremly cold in
this county, perhaps colder by
several degrees than for years
past. On last Monday morning
the mercury ran down to 24
degrees below zero. Snow to
the depth of l-I inches has cov
ered the grass in this section of
country for over a wek, and
if it continues six week, longer
we believe we will not be fat
wrong when we say that not
less than 20,000 head of cattle
. will die of starvation in this
county alone. Our stock men
have -been favored, huirclv. for
years past and consequently
they are uot prepared for this
snow. But lot us hope that a
chinook will dispel the snow
inside am. l Lor week and that
our ranchers will see their im
mense hands come no in the:

A wom-m's glove is to he?
what a vest pocket is to a man
but it is more capacious, and
in ninety-nine cases out of
hundred it is much better rep-,
ulated. A man will carry $200
worth cf small change, four
matches, half-a-dozen tooth
picks, a short pencil, and yet
not be able to find a nickle. or'
o match, or a toothpick, or a
eaad when he wants it. Not so
with a woman. She has the
least bit of a glove, and in that
trlove she carries the tiniest
hand, and a wad of bilLs a:.d the
memoranda for her intended
purchase of dry goods, car tick-'
ets and mattinee checks, and
maybe a diminutive powder
bay. We lruve no idea how
she does it how she manages
to squeeze those thousand and
one things into that wee space.
But she does it every time, and
the irlove never looks the least
discomposed, or plethoric, or
milled. And when she wants
any article concealed about that
glove, she doesirt seem to have
the least trouble in the world
getting at it. a!1 that is requir
ed is a simple turn of the wrist,
the disappearance of two fairy
lingers, and the desired article
is brought to liiht ! It is a
