BIG MODERN STORE DONO HUE' ALWAYS RELIABLE UNITED STATES GEOLOGICAL SURV[Y CO-OPERATES WITH STATE ENGINEERS Many States Have Profited by This Opportunity and Havc Secured Valuable Results in Topographic Work and Othei Commonwealths Are Planning to Take Similar Action. Systematic examination of the ge ology, waters and forests of the state of Montana have been begun by the United States Geological survey, and are being extended under federal ap propriation. The purpose of these in vestigations is to promote knowledge of the state, and aid the development of its resources. A topographic map is essential as a basis for the representation of the nature and resources of the state, and one is. bcing prepared by surveys con tinued from year to year. Such a ma0p is almost essential to the develops ment of the country. Montana has thousands of acres of arid, or semi 'rid land, now hearing crops of sage brush, that only need water to trans form them into productive farms, but In order to intelligently reclaim this land, topographic maps must be made to show its location, as well as where the water may be secured to irri gate it. For the development of the min ing interests of the states, it is es sential to have good topographic maps of the mountain regions for the prospector to locate his prospect, to show the distance of the same from railroads, where power may be de veloped for the treatment of the ore, where water may be secured for the mill, and as a base for geologic re port on the district. These maps are also of great use to the prospector in securing the financial support nec essary for the development or sale of his prospect, as with such a map, in Boston and New York, he can ex plain the conditions as well there as on the ground. The water supply of Montana, both for power and irrigation purposes, is becoming more valuable every year and in order to develop it to the best advantage, maps of large areas should be made, in order to determine the fall of the streams, show where res ervoirs may be constructed for stor age, and to indicate points where power may be developed and the dis tance to the point of its utilization. In this connection, for the develop ment of power, as well as for irri gation purposes, it is essential that the streams be gauged in order that the amount of water that can be de pended upon may be known, and to secure reliable data, it is necessary that these gaugings be extended over a series of years. This part of the work is in charge of the water re sources branch of the United Stater Geological survey, and is being pushed as rapidly as tho limited appropria tions will permit. In fact, today the first thing asked for, before undertaking any enterprise, is a topographic map-whether it be railroad construction, irrigation, road building, water supply, lumbering or mining. The areas selected for survey are defined by lines of latitude and longi tude, and. are called quadrangles, which are named after the most prom inent city or natural feature on the same. (ln these quadrangles, or at las sheets, all the roads, trails, rail roads, cities, towns, postoffices houses, county and state boundaries and section and township lines, where they exist, as well as all lettering, are shown in black. The streams, lakes rivers, and all water features arm shown in blue; while the hill ant mountain features, or elevations, arc shown by means of contour lines ir brown. The contour interval varies with the scale of the map, and the relief of the country, where they arm close together the country is steep where further apart, gently sloping and where none exist, the surface ia practically flat. These maps are obtainable from the United States Geologica Isurvey ir Washington, D. C., at the nomina price of 5 cents a capy, or $3 pea hundred sheets. As permanent monuments, coppe bolts, brass or aluminum tablets marking the exact geodetic position of primary triangulation points, wil be left at conspicious points through out the state, where surveys are is progress. These monuments serve a datum points for all other govern ment, private and cadastral surveys There are also established in connec tion with the mapping, bench marks or permanent monuments, which fur nish accurate elevations above th sea level for further level work, fo engineering investigations and fo such public works as canals, railroadE roads, gnt other public or privat surveys. A topographic map also shows th feasible railroad routes of the coun etry. New roads may be laid out fair ly accurately with but little survey ing. It is also useful for the inves tigation of the water supply for town and for the disposal of sewage. Th traveling man and automobilist ar glad to Wive maps of the state throug which they travel, as they show th most direct routes from town to town without inquiry. There have been mapped by the United States Geological survey sine the beginning of the work in 1882 46,001 square miles, or 34 per cent of tie total area of the state of Montana which is, 136,080, leaving, approxi mately, 90,000 square miles of the state still unmapped, an it is im portant for the development of the state still unmapped, and it is im lain portions of this area should b had at an early date. During the present field season, Mr Arthur Stiles, assisted by Messrs Forster and Kent, will complete th mapping of the Missoula quadrangle embracing an area of, aproximately 1.000 square miles on the scale of tw miles to the inch, with 100-foot con tours. Co-Opration. The federal government has been liberal in the appropriations for topo graphic surveys, and for investigation of the water resources, but the tim has now come when it would be ad vantageous and profitable for tis state of Montana to appropriate fund for co-operation with the Unite States Geologic Survey, both in or der to expediate the maiping of it unmapped areas, and the investiga tion of its water resources. Massassachusetts, Rhode Island an Connecticut are entirely mapped, an have been for some years. This wa accomplished by the states co-operat ing with the United States Geologi Survey; that is, the state appropriat ed a certain sum of money to be ex pended by the United States Geologi Survey in making a topographic map provided the geologic survey expende an equal amount within the stat from the federal appropriation, th mapping being done by the Unite States Geologic Survey in accordane with an agreement entered into wit the state. Many other States hav seen the advantave of this arrange ment, and have been quick to ava themselves of It.

A. R. ENCAMPMENT. Salt Lake City, Utah, June 6.--An electric sign an eighth of a mile long with letters 60 feet In height on the side of a mountain peak is to be one of the several unusual features of the Forty-third national encanmpment of the Grand Army of the Republic h}ere from August 9 to 14. The sign no doubt will be the largest ever built and will be one of the most unique features ever introduced at a G. A. it, encampment. The letters will be placed on the side of Ensign peak, a mile north of the city, in a place where they can be seen for over a hundred miles both north and south in tr;eat Salt Lake valley. I They will make a most ottr mtiv display, and at night a myriad of electric lights will foram the letters. They will read. WWelcome (1. A. R.," and no doubt it will be a welcome that the aged war riors will not soon forget. Either at night or in the daytime the sign will be the first sight of Salt Lake C'ity and the nenampment which will meet thl eye of the visitors as the incom ing trains round the end of the moun tains a hundred miles south of the peak. It will be in plain view from the time the train enters the valley until it pulls into the depot. The task of installing the letters on the side of the mountain will be be gun within the next few weeks and will be hurried. It will be a difficult task to raise the hugh wooden letters to their positions and fasten them down, but by the use of machinery, it is considered possible by those who w will undertake it. An electric light C line will he run up the side of the e mountain and will furnish the power for the myriad of bulbs. The sign t will be erected at an enormous cost. t Another feature of the encampment Swhich is attracting considerable at tention is the "human flag" which is o being arranged. If present plans are carried out the flag will be the largest ever formed in. the United States. It will contain 4,000 school children, who will he drilled in the art of producing the waving effect to the flag and in going throual' carious pretty drills. it TRY A MISShil'LIAN C'LASS AD.
