sources of water supply, says The Na­
tional Stockman. A drought of any
length 'wings about a w ter famine
which la even more distressing than n
scarcity of forage. The foreit reserves,
the natural sources of water, have been
destroyed, the pastures have been over-
taxed and thinned out. And now cat-
tie are being shipped out <w lost be-
cause range privileges have been thus
abused. If official reports are to be
trusted, ranges, troth nortHem and
southern, are not capable of supporting
the amount of stock they did years ago
because of continued close pasturing.
The system which makes It necessary
for every man to get all he can from
the range without regard to Its future
usefulness is radically wrong and must
end In disaster to those who depend on
these pastures.

As sood us the colt Is-bridled aad bit­
ted the surcingle shouW be strapped
lightly round him. Tbs preaker should
avoid drawing suddenly;-it first, or the
pressure may startle lfm and cause
! him to kick and throw li,mu. if down.
The neat thing la to pl*»-‘ the rupper

quTeny 'Trough- l h «. c\cr should
be sure that all tlte loose hair is
through the loop. Notllug will uiske a
colt kick sooner than ,y leaving some
of the nalr at the root of the tall out­
side the crupper, for when the pressure
comes upon It It will alp his dock and
Induce him to kick ard throw himself
about In all dlrecttoia. The crupper
should be fixed to the turclngle, taking
care not to draw It to* tightly. After
this the breaker shoulc take the end of
the halter, which shouH always be left
on the head of the colt beneath the bri­
dle, and bring It tliroigb between bla
fore legs and tie It list too tightly to
the surcingle. After a little practice In
this manner the side reins should be
placed upon him very loosely, the near
rein being fixed to thi off ring of the
surcingle, and vice versa
It Is a good plan to turn the colt Into
a large open court, wheif he cannot get
fast In any way, and allow him to
roam about of his ow n accord. In this
way he will soon lieglt to champ and
work the bit, and the uore he works It
his mouth will be the more evenly
made. The bit should le slightly bent,
with three small keys tuspended from
the center. The bend In the bit pre­
vents the colt making bis mouth un­
equal, as It Is linpos8ltle for him to
pull entirely on one slie of It, while
the loose action of the k*ys Induces him
to work the bit more fr*ely. The keys
should not be too loug, or they will
come between Ills fruit teeth, which
may give him a bad habit of tossing up
his head In future.
Some colts arc Inclined to sulk on th«
bit at first, but In time ttiey will gener­
ally work It quite freely. The break­
ing tackle should not remain upon the
eolt more than a cou|Je of hours at
first, and the time should gradually be

high altitudes. Some of them are too
rare and others too small to be of
much value for forage, but the ma­
jority are valuable, and four or five
are of sufficient Importance to warrant
careful experimentation as to their pos­
sible use as cultivated crops. From
their appearance and thrtftlness under
natural conditions or In Irrigated na­
tive meadows It would certainly seem
probable that several of them would
prove of great value for cultivation,
especially In the higher altitudes,
where alfalfa and the common clovers
canuot be successfully grown.
Mountain' red clover Is one of the
most robust growing native sorts
found In the Rocky mountain region.
The flower heads are large and showy,
and the leaves are composed of from
flve to seven leaflets Instead of three,
as Is the case with the other clovers
of the region. It produces stout, deep
growing roots and lias ninny other
qualities commending It to the atten­
tion of the experimenter. It Is most
widely distributed on the west side of
the continental divide.—T. A. Williams.

In many parts of the great west—In

—there are colonies of ants which col­
lect from a considerable distance many
little stones of about a uniform size
and put these on the outside of their
ant hills. Some of these little pebble
stones they get from the Inside of their
bouses as they burrow, but most of
them they collect from the surface of
the land near hy. Teeth also of field
mice and gophers or other small ani­
mals they bring to the outside of these
ant hills, and if Indians camp near
them the ants pick up for the same
purpose al) the little heads dropped by
the squaws. After the Indian camp

Indian beads can usually be found on
the outside or tlie ant hills. Wide

to examine these hills for various
specimens that the ants have found

My experience of 20 years’ breeding
plgeonH lins taught me that one of the
main points to keep In view Is health
and vigor. There are two kinds of
weakened nnd run down stock. Oye Is
on account of Improper inntiug nnd In­
breeding, which will take years of
careful inatlug and crossing to bring
hack. The other la on account of lwfing
Improperly kept. Will give my experi­
ence how I brought buck to vigor a
flock of pigeons that were run down on
account of overfeeding and lack of ex­
ercise, which I got front a funder who
had become discouraged, not knowing
how to handle them, as up to July he
had only nine young from ten pairs
that Bcason. I treated them as fol­
I put them In a loft with an outsldo
aviary, covered the loft floor with sand
one-half an Inch deep, let the birds get
quite hungry, and then the first thing
In the morning I scattered wheat all
over llic loft floor. This soon got them
to digging over the sand with their
bills. I let them exercise about an
hour In this way and then let them out
In the aviary, where I kept water anil
fhe necessary grit. In the evening I
gave them a fair meal In the aviary,
but not all they would eat. At first
they would get Into the loft as soon as
possible after being fed, and I put a
stop to tills by dosing the loft. This
got them to exercising trying to get In,
and In a few days they commenced
fighting for a place on the drop hoards
while »he loft was dosed. This was
Indeed evidence of new life. After
about ten days I gave them entire lib­
erty by keeping them hungry, and I
soon got them accustomed to get their
feed on the ground quite a distance
from tlie loft and their wnter In the op­
posite direction ns far from loft. In
this way I got them to exercise consid­
erable anil soon commenced to Increase
their feed gradually, until at last gave
them a full meal at night, aud soon
“pouter* commenced to point and fana

nicely snd the next season bred a lot of
fine healthy young from them. I do
not wish to leave th* Impression that
