RICH INDIAN LAND
Fort Peck Reservation Ready for
Settlers Next Spring.
W Last Big Tract Left In .West soil
Unusually Productive In Grain,
As Shown By Pronress Made
P; By Tribes Themselves.
Uutte, Mont. Two million acres of
land in Montana, now known as the
Fort Peck Indian reservation, will bo
throvta open for settlement by tho
government next spring. This is tho
last largo tract of public lund In tho
west that has not been opened to set
tlers. Inasmuch as less than ono per cent
of this land has been cultivated and all
of it Is said to be fertile, it is esti
mated that the harvest will bo en
riched by 20,000,000 bushels of grain
u year after it is settled and devel
oped. The share of this tract alloted
to Indians of many tribes is 723.693
acres. Tho rest is unoccupied.
"On the supposition that the unoc
cupied lands wero devoted to tho
growing of wheat on tho summer fal-
j.- iuvr . u, which "WCu'.d mean that ono-
'half tho area would be In crop at ono
h tlmo, and on tho further supposition
that the wheat would yield 25 bushels
per acre, which is a moderate estl
niato for ylolds on land thus prepared,
tho aggrogato production would bo 19,
312,500 bushels." Thomas Shaw, agri-
t cultural expert, estimates.
' Prof. Shaw further says: "If this
u 4K land were entirely .devoted to the
Rfc 'growing of barley on tho summer fal-

000 bushels, as barley grown on 6uch
land should average 40 bushels per
aero. If the entire area wero do
voted to the growing of oats on the
samo Hne3, tho total production would
be 38,025,000 bushels, as 50 bushels
per acre would not be an .extrava
gant tnJnlo for lanrjthus farmed."
