This property is located in Ravalli couny, Montana, about 15 miles south of the town of
Hamilton, one mile from the Bitter Root viver, and about one-half mile from the Railroad,
and consists of 10° acres of land, held under options, as follows: 40 acres, on which are lo
cate.! the farm buildings and a small orchard, on which the option expires May 18, 1910; 60
acres, on which the last payment is to be made, during the month of November, 1911.
At the present time it will be necessary to haul our coal by wagon to the railroad, a dis
tance of about three-fourths of a mile, by the county road, but the country between the mine
and the railroad being practically level, it is an easy matter to extend the side track, already
established, to the mine.
Timber and water facilities are good, a forest of timber within a reasonable distance, natur
al springs on the property, and the Bitter Root river about oue mile away.
The coal vein in the property is well defined and has a thickness averaging 13 feet. The coal
is high grade lignite. The development work already done consists of 275 feet of tunnel, 75
feet in the upper and 200 feet in the lower workings. In the lower tunnel the work is along
side the vein for 150 feet, coal showing all the way. The coal is constantly improving with
depth and that which is now being taken out is the best lignite known in Montana.
To develop this property, The Swastika Development Company has been organized with
500,000 shares of stock, of which 800,000 were placed in the treasury. No officer of this com
pany draws one cent for salary, and every cent derived from the sale of treasury stock must
go into the property. The officers of the company are: Andrew Logan, Missoula, president;
R. VV. Kemp, Missoula, secretary-treasuier. The directors are: Andrew Logan, R. W. Kemp
Edward Doulan and Carl Greenhood of Missoula aud A. W. Thayer of Thompson.
Samples of the Coal may be seen and detailed information may be obtained by applying to
TRAINING COLLIE DOGS.
Patience and Good Care Necessary For
Good collie dons arc becoming scarce.
A good dog must bo one that is well
bred and carefully trained. breed
won't do without the training, and
training would he of very little use
without good breeding to work on.
There are instances where the train
ing of collies was begun when but ten
weeks old. Considerable patience is re
quired of the teachers. Words such as
"stand" and "over" should be taken
up separately until they understand
WELL IlbKI) COLLIES.
Just exactly what is meant by each.
Of course the liest time to do the
training is when the instructor and
the dog are alone, so there will be no
side attractions. After the dogs learn
to obey they should be taken where
the sheep are aud taught to stand or
lie down in front of them. In a short
time they should be allowed to drive
them, always, of course, under care
ful supervision, until they will go and
get the sheep when told to do so,
whether the flock is in sight when
starting out or not. They will also
be found to be equally efficient in
driving cows. Good dogs well trained
are a comfort aud satisfaction, but the
dog that has not learned to mind is a
nuisance aud a great damage on a
farm. The well bred collie embodies
the highest equine intelligence and is
the most satisfactory companion of
man in < egdom.
Not Necessarily Fatal.
