HOW THE BLACKFEET INDIANS BECAME FOES OF WHUTE RACE The first great tragedy occurring in what is now the state of Montana was the killing of He-That-Looks Like-a-Calf, a Piegan hostage, held in the camp of Captain Meriweather Lewis, in 1806. The contention of the Piegans, and of the Blackfeet, their allies, was that the white men held the life of the hostage too cheap ly, and they decided to discipline the whites. The allied Indians swore vengeance against the white men be cause of the killing. In consequence the fur traders, who flocked to the state after the re turn of Lewis and Clark to St. Louis, were forced to fight the two nations. One of the results of this, war was the collapse of the Missouri Fur com pany, which sent several expeditions and many men into Montana. This failure cost Manual Lisa, first of the great fur traders after Astor, a for tune. For thirty years the Blackfeet kept this feeling against the white race alive, with the result that many whites and many more I...

BLAME FOR ITALIAN DEFEAT Some things about the crushing Italian defeat are not yet satisfac torily explained. It is declared that the Austro-Germans on the wide front of their big drive outnumbered the defenders four to one. But Italy has always been represented as hav ing more men than she could use on her Austrian front. Why, then, were her forces so fataly outnumbered? Is Italy really short of troops? Or was there inexcusable failure to ob serve what the enemy was about and make preparation for it? It is said, too, that the men defending the sec tor where the drive started were in $'erlor troops, men for the most part past 40, lacking in physical stamina And in training. That raises similar questions. Were such...

TREASURE STATE FARM AND LOVESTOCK Sunflowers Valuable for Silage and Soiling Crop There are great possibilities in the giant Russian sunflower as a crop for the silo in those sections of Montana where the altitude is too high, the growing season too short or the rain fall insufficent to permit the raising of satisfactory crops of corn. At the state experiment station at Bozeman, 36 tons of sunflowers were harvested in 1916 from a single acre and feeding tests indicated that it might prove highly valuable for dairy cattle, when fed either fresh from the field or from the silo. Dairymen and stock raisers all over the state have been watching the experiments at the college with great interest and will welcome the news just given out by Professor C. N. Ar nett of the state experiment station that the 1917 crop has proved a great success and that feeding experiments with dairy cows have shown the green sunflower to be equal pound for pound to green corn. Thirty Tons Per Acre. According t...

NON-IPARTIISAN LEAGUE AND EQuITY SOCIETY WILL WORK TOGETHER IN STATE IN FUTURE Here is a story that will be read with interest by the politicians of Montana. The Non-Partisan league, the farmers' organization which is in political control of North Dakota, is out to capturd this state. It is stated that the league has more than 30,000 members in Montana, and that this membership is being added to every day, by a vigorous canvas which is being made in every agricultural sec tion of the state. The canvas is be ing made by automobile, quietly and without ostensation, and farmers ev erywhere are being enrolled.

DREAM OF SUDDUTH, GREAT SCOENTOST, COMES TRUE, WHEN ALFALFA GETS PLACE ON WAR MENU Alfalfa has been given a place as a bread ration. Conservationists have acknowledged its value as a food for humans. They have recom mended it as a substitute, in the shape of meal, for buckwheat, corn and wheat flours. On the bills of fare In the leading hotels and res taurants of New York and Chicago in bold, black type, one reads "Al falfa waffles and cakes." The dream of Dr. W. X. Sudduth of Broadview and Billings has come true. The necessity for conserving the American food supply in time of war has done what the eloquence of the noted Montana scientist failed to accomplish. Food scientists have placed the stamp of their approval on "alfalfa" as a food for both men and beasts. It seemed a tragedy indeed that he is not here to witness the triumph of his ideas. But like most men, who pioneer the way and present some new thought or idea, recognition of the worth of the discovery comes aft er death. ...

jTRASURE STATE FARM AND LIVESTOCK SKIM MILK DIET GOOD FORCALVES JUST AS GOOD CALVES MAY BE RAISED ON MILK AFTER SEPARATED. Proper Care and Attention Demanded in Feeding Young; Break Them Into Skim Milk Diet Gradually; Give Plenty of Hay and Grain When They Start Eating. While the high prices for veal may be tempting to the Montana farmer, he should raise his own calves, and build up a large dairy herd just as rapidly as possible. Dairying is cer tain to become one of the most profit able farm industries in the state Experiments conducted by experts of the United States department of agriculture show that Montana is the best adapted for dairying of any of the northwestern states. Skim milk is sufifcient to raise a mighty good calf. Some farmers, however, are not as successful in raising calves on skim milk as others, such a diet requiring more care and attention on the part of the farmer. While whole milk seems to pro duce the best calf, it does not neces sarily follow that it produc...

FOURTEEN JOBS FOR MONTANANS TREASURE STATE -SHY ON ITS SHARE OF CLERKS AT NATIONAL CAPITAL. Life in City of Washington With Gov ermnent Job Under Civil Service Does Not Appear to Be Attractive to People From Northwestern State. There are 14 jobs, under the civil service in Washington, waiting for some Montanans to hunt them out, for the Treasure state lacks that number of official situations in the nation's capital to which it is en titled. According to a statement is sued by the civil service commission Montana is entitled to 73 places in the departments at Washington and has only received 59 appointments. The reason Montana is shy on gov ernment clerks in Washington, how ever, is due entirely to the fact that there have not been enough appli cations from Treasure state residents, who have passed the needed examina, tions, to fill them, and so the civil service commission has had to turn to residents of the District of Colum bia and adjoining states in filling the positions as they...

SON OF CAPTAIN OF FAR WEST RUNS FERRY BUT HOLDS LICENSE TO PILOT IN MONTANA Hanging in the little cabin of Cap tain-Pilot John Marsh on the ferry boat LaVerna, which carries tourists, mostly automobile owners bound for Excelsior Springs, across the Missouri at Sibley, Mo., is the certificate of one of the two pilots, who still have a government license entitling them to pilot steamships on the Yellow stone and Missouri river in Mon tana. At the wheel of the ferry boat, every day from January to January sits one of the last of the Mohicans of the wheel, John R. Marsh, son of the famous Grant Marsh, pilot on the Yellowstone and Missouri forty years ago. This fall the son completed his 41st year in river boating service. It has been many decades since the shrill whistle of the steamer was heard on the Yellowstone, or the splash of the big wheels was a money making sound on the Missouri in Montana, but if a ship should come up the stream again bound for Fort Benton or Fort Keogh, there ...
