WILL MAKE WOLVES SICK.
(From the River Press.)
Montana's new scheme for disposing
of coyotes and other animals that
prey upon stock, by the inoculation
route rather than by tihe gun or other
or more sudden means, is to be given
its test early in the summer under
the provisions of the law passed by
the recent legislature. By the terms
of the new law, Dr. M. E. Knowles,
tihe state veterinarian, is to have di
rection of the experiments, and he is
to select reliable meni in each of the
eight great stock counties of the state
who shall have charge of the work for
their respective counties. Eight coy
ote and wolf puppies are to be se
cured, and after being inoculated with
mange are to be carefully guarded
until the arrival of the proper mo
ment for their release.
When all is ready the official keep
er of the coyotes and wolves is to
turn the animals out, first, carrying
them at least eight miles from the
point of confinement. Under the law
the animals must be carried in eight
different directions and loosed, so
that the inoculated ones may be
thoroughly distributed about the
country. This being done, the state
must await. development. Meanwhile

it will continue to pay the bounty
provided by law for the scalps of the
pests, hoping, however, that there
will at least come an end to the
necessity for paying out hundreds of
thousands of dollars in bounty.
The men who are to look after the
work in each county are to receive
$15 a head, this including capturing,
infecting and distributing the ani
mals. Dr. Knowles has selected the
men who are to look after the work
in three of the counties, these being:
K. Preuitt, Chouteau; George Clark,

A most enjoyable and very unique
gathering of very young ladies and
gentlemen and their mammas occur
red last Saturday afternoon at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Ham
mond, on the East side, the occasion
being the celebration of the second
anniversary of Master Jack's birth
day. Invitations were sent out for
Saturday, March 25, that being the
day on which the young man should
have celebrated, but on account of
the illness of the young host the af
fair was postponed until Saturday.
Fifteen little tots, with their mam
mas, responded to the invitation, and
a happier and more enthusiastic ag
gregation of babyhood would be hard
to find. The afternoon was most
pleasantly spent by the mothers in
telling of the peculiar acquirements
of their respective babies, and by the
babies themselves in demonstrating
the truth of the mothers' statements
concerning them. A two-minute con
test in guessing the combined ages of
all the babies present, in months, was
won by Mrs. Arthur Johnson. Re
freshments were served during the
afternoon, consisting of such things
as the small ladies and gentlemen
could enjoy, as well as more substan
tial viands for the older ones.
Master Jack was the recipient of
many beautiful and useful presents
from his youthful friends, all of
whom, in departing, wished him
many happy returns of the day, or
words to that. effect, as interpreted
by each one's mamma.
The following little men and wo
men were present, each of whom was
accompanied by his or her best friend:
Tommy Troy, Arcelia Gibney, Wil
liam Gregg, Olaf Skylstead, Mildred
Gregg, Eileen Carnal, Norma Carnal,
Jack O'Brien, Eunice Crawford, Joe
McKenzie, Jack Mathews, Eleanor
Ruth Young, Helen Johnson, Ed
mund Newman and Louise Douglas.
