TO RAISE TWO MILLION on the Flathea-d range in Montana. It is the present intention to ship these late in September when the danger of loss from excessive heat and injury to the calves has been largely eliminated. Mr. Pablo is already preparing for the round up by which he proposes to sweep the rango of every hoof 01 buffalo without any of the exciting uncertainty and danger of the reck- less chasing of the herds which'char- acterized previous attempts to cor- ral the animals. He is extending the wing of his corral seventeen miles out across the buffalo range to the Pen D'Oreiiie river and the herd will thus be comparatively easily cor- ralled from. the favorite feeding grounds. They will be rounded up early this spring before they have recovered full vitality after the win- ter foraging and will be kept in the corrals until tiroc for shipment ar- rives. By constant handling and feeding, Pablo hopes to tame them materially and get them used to the horses and men thus removing the Edmonton, Feb. attended the Church of Immaculate Conception Sunday had the priv- ilege of hearing Father Lacombe, the noted old pioneer missionary, preach at the various services.
