POWDER Absolutely Pure TWERE 18 NO HtBiTFUTE MONTANA'S CROPS IN 000 SHAPE COOL WEATHER OF THE PAST WEEK FAILS TO WORK MATERIAL INJURY. HARVESTING WINTER WHEAT Ranges Are in Fine Condition and the Outlook is Mote Than Bright. Despite the unusually cool weather that has prevailed over the state for the last week the returns sent to Section Director Hlayes of the crop conditions in the dif ferenlt counties of Montana indicate that the crops of grain and hay will be the average. Part of the crop of winter wheat has been cut, while spring wheat is making fair progress, although the unfavorable weather has delayed its growth. The week opened warm, but the temper ature began to fall on July a8 and after that date unseasonably cool weather pre vailed, says the section director in his bulletin for the week. During the first of the week local thunder showers occurred in all sections of the state and on the joth and 31st fairly heavy rains were general. The crop of winter wheat is practically all ready to cut and to the west of the umain range a considerable portion of it was cut during the first of the week: the general opinion seems to be that this crop will give a good yield. Spring wheat is making very fair pro gress, but, as a rule, its prospects are not as encouraging as those of the winter crop. Oats are maturing rapidly and some are ready to cut; the condition of the crop ranges from an average to somewhat be low. Forage crops were being harvested dur ing the first of the week, but the work was Interrupted by rains and in scattered local ities some of the cut crops were damaged. Prospects for hay have changed but lit tle: a good yield is anticipated in the southwestern counties, an average yield in the northwestern counties, while in the eastern half of the state the return will be below the average. The second crop of flalfa is advancing very rapidly and its prospects are very good. The weather conditions have been very favorable for ranges. Reports on the potato crop are still quite encouraging. Coining as it does, i.l the busiest season, when a man can least afford to lose time, a sure and quick cure for diarrhoea is very desirable. Anyone who has given it a trial will tell you that the quickest, surest and most pleasant remedy in use for this dis ease is Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. There is no loss of time when it is used, as one or two doses of it will cure any ordinary attack. It never fails, not even in the most severe and dangerous cases.
