W. P. Turner, Sr., who owns a
large pack of tine wolf dogs, at Lu
cille, on the Marias, and sixty miles
from Benton, says the Press, writes
that wolves are multiplying rapidly
in that section, as high as sixty has
been seen in one band, near Ponde
ra, and he estimates the loss of
range cattle at £100,000 at least this
Mr. McNutt, a neighbor of Mr.
Turner, has lost several head of cat
tle which were kept at his ranch,
and many other losses are reported.
A plan of extermination advocated
by Mr. Turner is to take the bounty
matter from the state and have the
counties provide for the payment of
a §5 bounty on wolves. Then Mr.
Turner believes, each rancher will
get dogs and the number of wolves
will he rapidly reduced. He holds
to the position that strychnine is of
little use as the wolves, when so
numerous as on the range, will eat
nothing but fresh meat, while only
cayotes take the baits.
One thing is certain; something
must be done to rid the ranges of
wolves, and about the only feasible
plan seems to be to provide for a
sufficient bounty, anil levy a tax for
its payment, instead of giving a
small bounty with no immediate
prospect of its payment. If the
bounty is sufficiently large. the
problem will be solved by tiie use of
dogs, poison or some other method.
The stock interests of the state are
too great to be allowed to pass un
encouraged, and should substantial
aid be rendered by the state, or a
disposition be manifested to assist in
destroying range pests, all stock
men, large and small, will gladly do
fully or more than their share to
ward accomplishing that object.

Pointing to Freo Coinage.
Represenative Abbott of Texas
introduced a bill for the coinage of
the silver in the Treasury on a new
plan. The Secretary is to coin into
standard silver dollars, or minor
coins, not less than $2,000,000 ounc
es per month of the silver purchased
under the Sherman act. The coin
certificates issued under that act are
to be redeemed in gold or silver, in
the order in which the metal is held
in the largest quantity in the Treas
ury, and to issue coin notes to the
amount of the seniorage of the Sher
man act. The plan is apparently
devised to place gold and silver on
an equal footing.

Do You Suvio Graphite?
Below will be found a communi
cation from L. S. Woodbury, presi
dent of the Great Falls Iron Works.
This letter is timely and the advice
given we cordially indorse. The
time has now arrived when other
mines besides those of gold and sil
ver are demanded in Montana.
Graphite is generally of two
kind foliated and massive. The
first has been found in McKay
gulch near Barker. The last has
been found between Carpenter and
Hoover creeks, but not in any quan
tity and impure. It will pay pros
pectors, however, to find this sub
stance in large bodies, and it ought
to be fine grained and amorphous.
A new tie Irl of discovery is now
open to prospectors:
Great Falls, Feb. 7.— To the edi
tor Great Falls Tribune: The writ
er has had many years experience
with graphite and fully appreciates
its great value in all industrial and
mining enterprises, entirely exclu
sive of lead pencils and the like.
1 am quite familiar with this sub
ject and beg you and all your ex
changes to stimulate prospectors by
every practical means to watch for
this mineral at every turn of the sod
and blow of the pick.
There is only one mine in the
Ui)ited gtateg xvhoI .
quality is mined, and it
miles from Great Falls.
1 would say prospectors, look out
sharp for graphite, sometimes called
"plumbago, or black lead." It is as
good as gold. Respectfully.

The Parents of All Mankind.
Bill Nye in speaking of Hampton
Court, Frig., has this to say of one of
the picture gallery: "A picture, en
larged from a kodak, 1 judge, rep
resents Adam and Eve in the garden
of Eden. The figure on the right of
the group is Fve, as 1 learned from
an attendant. Adam is on the left—
one cannot tell by the clothes which
is which. One has just peeled a 20
ounce pippen and has thrown the
peeling over her shoulder to see
what letter it would makes. Onecaa
not but be impressed by this picture
of those two single handed parents of
the human race. With no experience
at all, green and countrified as all
get out, raw and unletterd, yet called
suddenly forward and asked to be
come the parents of all mankind,
white, black, red and yellow! Think
of it! Who could not shudder at the
very idea? It is a mighty solemn
thing to be a parent even where one's
child is of the same color as one's
self; but, ah, stop and think over for
a moment what it must be to havei
the doctor bring with him a Mongol
ian baby, or a little red brother, or a
