Supercedes Russia as Principal Fur Producer; Good Returns Assured Trappers; Winter Time for Trap ping as Animals Are in Best Con dition. One of the effects of the war has been to stimulate trapping through out the country and to transfer the world's fur market from Russia to America. There is now a market in this country for all native skins and the demand is the best in years. As a consequence prices are high er on furs than ever before and the man that makes a systematic effort to trap wild fur bearing animals can reap a splendid cash income. The demand for furs comes from all classes. The various governments need them in great quantities for lining clothing and for gloves. The domestic demand for skins .has increased.

WHEN HUGH COOK FED OUTLAW HORSE SUGAR INDIANS RENAMED HIM "HE RIDES 'EM HIGH" Any old cowpuncher, who has been riding the range very long, in the Po*der river brakes or up Toffgue river valley around the Northern Cheyenne Indian reservation will re call Kid Cook, a debonnair youngster who made his first appearance in that country some 15 years ago, and for a while proved the riding sensation at all improvised rodeos. "He Rides 'em High," the Injuns used to call him, though a few knew him by the appellation "Man Without a Beard," which translated means young fellow. He won the first name as a result of one of the most stir ring incidents that ever occurred on a southern Montana ranch, an event that made of him a hero among the 61d-time riders and the redmen. Kid Cook, who in Montana busi ness life is now known as Hugh P. Cook, president and general manager of the Western Accident and Indem nity company with head offices in tielena, had recently arrived in tne state from the, east. He...

ROMANCES OF THE MONTANA FLOCKMASTER; DOLLAR WOOL PREDICTED FOR THE 1918 CLIP Is the day of the sheer baron pass ing? Is an industry that has madA more than 10,000 Montanans rich threatened with extinction, and is it about to go the way of the open range cattle man? If it is, it is passing out in a blaze of golden glory. The sanguine are predicting $1 per pound for Montana wool before next shearing time. At this figure, which seems almost im possible, the Montana wool clip of 1918 should command something like $20,000,000. output of the state a few years ago. It may be that the days of the big flockmaster, controlling say 100,000 head of sheep, are over, but certainly it will always be profitable to breed sheep in a small way. A Montana farmer bought 1,000 head of young ewes the other day. He paid around $12,000 for them. He was offered an advance contract price of 75 cents per pound for next season's wool and declined it. He is of the opinion that he will clear, from his wool and in...

Protection Should Be Sought Against Cold Wintry Weather, Dangers En countered During Early Thaws it Springtime, and Sudden Changes in Temperature. There is hardly a place in Montana where strawberries do not thrive, and, as a result, they are a favorite berry in the family garden, though not produced on as large a commer cial scale as would be profitable. Still there are several large commertial patches in various sections of the state. Of recent years the ever bearing variety has become popular in the state and in the various home papers this fall there have appeared ac counts of delicious strawberries har vested in October and November. Strawberries should be mulched in early winter to protect the plants from severe weather, and from alter nate freezing and thawing in the ear ly spring.

Back in the early days of Montana when the capital was at Virginia City, and the Conway's were one of the prominent families of Alder Gulch society, Bob, Frank, Johnny and Billy Conway used to swap horses with the neighboring boys, and before the quartet was of age, they had a big herd running on the ranges of Madison county. This statement best answers the query as to when Johnny Conway first started buying horses. He is at it still. Frank, who became one of Montana's best known writers, an swered the final summons years ago; Billy has made a fortune in business in Billings, and Bob is a rich stock man down in the Sarpy Creek coun try of Big Horn county.

Investigations of Agent of United States Department of Agriculture Shows Proper Treating of Seed Grain Reduces Loss From Smut to Great Extent. J. W. Taylor, specialist in the Unit ed States departmert of agriculture, has been assisting county agents throughout Montana in investigating grain smut in the state, calling upon farmers and elevators everywhere. Recently he has spent some time in Fergus county. The results of these investigation based upon the testimony of farmers and others interested, seems to in dicate that where grain is treated properly and consistently every year there is very little annual loss due to smut. That most farmers preferred blue stone to formalin treatment. This may be due to the commercial for maldehyde not always being up to standard strength. Th* government specialists recommend formaldehyde as it is easier to use. It does not cor...
