TWELVE GOOD SILO REASONS.
As yet there are comparatively few silcs in Montana. In the more eastern and older states the silo development in the past five years has been phe nomenal, silos have been erected on almost every farm and put to every conceivable use, says the Montana Parmer. Horses, cattle, sheep, hogs, and poultry have all been fed silage with good success thought it is with dairy cattle that silage has become the most important factor. Silos are becoming more popular in this state. During the past summer a large num ber of pit silos have been erected in various parts of the state, especially the eastern counties and these are proving very successful. The introduction of corn in Mon tana on an extensive scale is going to have an important bearing on the silo situation. While clover can be made into fairly good silage, it is not equal to corn, nor is any other form of silage. During the past year thou sands of acres of corn have been grown in man:' parts of the state ar.d as dairy cattle too, are greatly on the increase, it is only natural to look for many more silos in the next year or two. A silo is a good thing to have on any farm. The experiences of thou sands of farmers all over the east have proved this without a doubt. There is a place for a silo on every farm in this state. If you don't keep dairy cattle, you may be assured that you, are feeding cattle will do all the bet-! ter for having some silage while they are in the feed lot, a reasonable quan-J titv of it will not come amiss with the horses, sheep and hogs. The silo is a paying proposition, any wav you look at it. Another year is going to mark! the planting of still more corn in this state. Corn being a cultivated crop, pec.liarly adapts itself to take the place of the summer fallow and used as such it is bound to have an im portant bearing on farming conditions over the dry land regions of Montana, The silo offers one of the best ways to utilize this corn crop. Montana corn, because of its low growth and com paratively fine stalks makes an excel lent silage, better than much of the corn in the east. SEARCH HOUSES OF ALIEN RESI DENTS AND PICK UP SCORES OF REVOLVERS. CRACK CHAMPAGNE ON CURBING BUTTE, Mont., Sept. 29.—Disarming of aliens under authority of the Mon tana statutes, which prohibit aliens from carrying guns without a license, began today under the supervision of Provost Marshal Frank Conley and State Game Warden De Hart. The houses of foreign miners were search ed and as a result tonight the authori ties were in possession of scores of re-■ volvers. In anticipation of opposition being shown, three companies of troops were under arms throughout the dav, but no objection was offered the oficers in their search. The dis arming will continue until the officers are satisfied thev have the field thor oughly searched" In addition to being fined $800 today, John Crowlev, proprietor of one ot the larger saloons In the heart of Butte, todav had his stock of $2,000 worth of liquors destroyed, 1,000 per sons witnessing the soldiers crack bottle after bottle of champagne on the curbir. CANADIAN PACIFIC SHOWS BIG • am ... ... ...min LOSS IN EARNINGS FOR AUGUST -; ____ ______ „ „„ „ NEW YORK, Sept. 29.—The finan rial district found encouragement to day in the records of exports of mer chandise from the port for the last week. The figures exceeded by almost *3,000,000 the total for the previous week and show an increase of $3,222, O00 over the same week of 1913. To this important factor and increased operation of cotton and grain bills were attributed the diminished activ ity in foreign exchange in lower rates, The gold pool continued its activi ties with intimations of a definite statement of its accomplishments be fore the end of the week. It was learned that at least five of the re serve cities have announced their wil lingness to subscribe more than their quota to the $100,000,000 fund if neces Steel trade advices offered little en couragement, incoming business be ing reported as the smallest in some ye * rS ' , v. „ Approval by the Interstate commerce commission of the application of the Eastern railroad request for an in crease in passenger mileage from 2 to 2V 4 cents served as a partial offset to the announcement that shippers in western and central states intend to combat the proposed freight rate In crease which comes up for rehearing in the coming month. Three important roads—the Union Pacific, the Canadian Pacific and the South railway—submitted August statements today. Union Pacific showed a fair net gain, but the others exhibited substantial losses, Canadian Pacific falling back almost $6,000,000 despite a big reduction in operating expenses. | Each year brings a greater diversifi ! cation of the crops raised on Montana I farms. Livestock is again coming in j to the country in great numbers and it | wiH not be many years before there j will be more beef raised in the state ! than ever in the old range day3. The j dairy industry has a wonderful growth and bids fair to be one of the most im 1 portant lines of Montana husbandry. All these things point to the fact that i the silo will soon be as popular here as ! it is in many eastern states. A silo is a good thing for every farmer to build ! as soon as he has the stock to con sume the product. T. E. Woodward of the dairy divis ! ion furnishes 12 good and well-con ' s'dered reasons for the farmer pro ! viding himself with a silo. Every one ' of them touches some spot of impor tance to the larger profit of d.ir.v farming. Here they are: 1. More feed can be stored in a given space i'». the form of silage than in the form of fodder or hay. 2. There is a smaller loss of food material when a crop is made into si.age than when cured as a fodder or hay. 2. Corn silage is more efficient feed than corn fodder. 4. An acre of corn can be placed in the silo at less cost than the same area can be husked and shredded. 5. Crops can be put into the silo during weather that could not be util ized in making hay or curing fodder. 6. More stock can be kept on a given area of land when silage is the basis of the ration. 7. There is less waste in feeding silage than in feeding fodder. Good si lage properly fed is all consumed. 8. Silage is very palatable. ft. Silage, like other succulent feeds, has a beneficial effect upon the digestive organs. 10. Silage is the cheapest and best form in which succulent feed can be provided for winter use. 11. Silage can be used for supple- j incuting pastures more economically than can soiling crops, because it re quires less labor, and silage is more palatable. 12. Converting the corn crop into silage clears the land and leaves it ready for another crop. BILL IS PASSED IT CARRIES $20,000,000 FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF RIVERS AND HARBORS. SEVERAL AMENDMENTS DEFEATED WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.—The riv ers and harbors appropriation bill, in the form of a senate substitute, carry ing only a general fund of $20,000,000 for continuing present projects in the discretion of the war department, was passed late today by the house. It now only needs the presidents appro val t0 become a law. As reported by the senate commit jj ie Dill included appropriations aggregating $53,000,000, but the suc cessful filibuster, conducted by Senator Burton, resulted in the adoption of the substitute. Numerous amendments were defeat e< T today before the final vote. Rep resentative Fitzgerald of New York .wanted a specific authorization for the expenditure of $500,000 for improving Hell Gate and East river, Including the blowing up of Coenties reef. Delay ' n thls ''' ork ' he s , aid ' meaat . enOT m? u8 ' '/ greater cost later and immediate 'T ,i nger to lives. Representative Rainey of Illinois sought to extend the Mississippi river levee improvement as far north as Rock Island instead of Cape Girardeau, near the mouth of the Ohio river, as at present authorized. Speaker Clark "iS'LS.'S? a country richer than the valley of the Ganges or the Nile delta. It was re jeeted, 123 to 46 xhe ' fl n al effort of the opposition j n an amendment by Representative Humphreys of Washington to reduce the appropriation from $20,000,000 to $5,000,000, was defeated, 172 to 130. T hc bill was then passed without a record vote and will become law upon u, e president's signature, During the debate, Republican Lead e r Mann charged the democrats with extravagance and said that every man who is hard up and signs a mortgage, a promissory note, or who signs a deed or takes out an insurance policy will help pay for the river and harbor projects. nri iriirn TUC DHPICIP IP 110111 DlULVlU Hit H jlllll Id NUW FREE OF GERMAN BATTLESHIPS - SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 29.—Confi dent that the North Pacific was free of hostile warships, the Grand Trunk Pacific Steamship qpmpany, which sus pended its service between Seattle and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, soon after England declared war, announced today that service would be restored Sunday, when the steamship Prince George, which was commandeered by the British admiralty for use on this coast as a hospital ship, will be re turned to its coastwise run. Further evidence of confidence in British shipping circles was shown by the sailing today of the Royal mail liner Monmouthshire for London via the Orient with a cargo of 9,000 tons of flour, canned salmon and miscellane ous freight. MORE AMERICANS HOME. NEW YORK, Sept. 29.—The Scan dinavian-American line steamer United States, which arrived tonight from Co penhagen, Christiania, and Christian sand, brought 145 first, 162 second cab in and 736 steerage passengers, the greater proportion of the steerage passengers being Americans. They are mostly tourists, returning from va rious parts of Europe. Owing to the (crowded condition many had to take accommodations in the steerage.
