Mrs. Chas. E. Oxenrider of Lewiston, Mont., in remitting for her paper, writes that her family is all well. Mr. Oxenrider is busy with his plowing outfit and their four oldest children are in school; the oldest daughter in her second year in high school.

They have a cow and a two year old heifer, and besides furnishing their own family with milk and cream, sol in August $75.00 worth, in September $70.00 worth, and in October $65.30 worth.
