checking up timber sales, for the pest
year, and the outlook for 1924 sales.
Thirty-five million two hundred thou
sand feet of timber was cut from the
national forests In District 1 In the
first quarter of 1024, according to a
report Issued by the forest service at
Missoula. During the same period in
1923 the cut was 21.615,000 fact. The
Increase for 1024 is about 70 per cent.
The amount of the timber cut In the
first quarter la $83.748.74, amounting
to about $2.75 per 1,000 feet. Of the
total of 847 commercial sales of tim
ber made In 1923 from the 24 national
forests of Montana and northern Idaho,
759 were under $100 In value. This
means, federal foresters say, that the
national forests are fulfilling an Im
mediate purpose of contributing to the
Industry and development of the small
er communities adjacent to the na
tional forests.
Cayuees a Problem—What la to be
done to rid Montana's ranges of the
ca.vuses, estimated to number a half
million, that are depleting the forage
and which serve no useful purpose!
This is a question that B. A. Phillips,
secretary of the state livestock asso

swer for, with the co-operation of the
livestock men who appointed a com
mittee at the recent convention at
Dillon to work on the problem. The
automobile baa destroyed whatever
market there for the
900-pound range pony, Secretary Phil

their numbers are Increasing on the
range until the public pastures are
overran with them and the problem
has become a serious one. Secretary
Phillips states that livestock men esti
mate that one range horse consumes
or destroys twice as much range as
cow, so If the worthless wild horse
could be driven out of Montana, he
declares, additional range would be

Coal Industry Grows.—Coal mining
Is rapidly becoming one of the most
Important Industries In northern Mon

scattered through all of the upper Milk
River valley, and It la said there is
almost an Inexhaustible supply. There
are several coal mines operating both
north and south of Chinook, hut the
most largely developed Is the Milk
River coal mine, two and one-half
mtlee from Chinook. The mine has
been tunneled over a half mile, and
the coal Is being taken out below the
100-foot surface. Already $054)00 has
been expended In developing the mine,
and It is expected It will be more high
ly developed the coming year.
Gold Strike at Basin.—What many
beljeve to be the greatest gold strike
of recent years was made In the Katie
mine of the Jib Consolidated company
at Basin. The strike was made on tha
400-foot level, while the high grade

several Inches are Interspersed
throughout the ledge that will assay
better, than $200.000 a ton. One sack
of ore taken by Manager O. H. Brln

snd was valued at $1.000. In the
opinion of Mr. Brinton, the strike Is a
continuation of the old vein that In
