APPROXIMATELY TWO-THIRDS OF MONTANA CLIP SOLD OUTRIGHT. PRICES MAY BOOST 00TP0T Notwithstanding the fact that prices of wool have been higher in the pri mary markets of tlie west this sea son than in other years of extreme values, some growers are not willing to, accept what is now being offered, says the Anaconda Standard. Word omes from the eastern markets that many clips are now being shipped from Montana to the east in consign ment .these wools coming from the section which has been known in tlie wool trade as the "selling state." So much wool has been shipped on consignment to the leading warehouse interest that its Chicago storage facil itles are inadequate and other space has had to be secured. It is reported have received some 6,000,000 pounds on this basis. The consign ors are taking the same chances as dealers, except that they must pay commission out of the proceeds of tlie sale of their wool, as well as the freight, insurance and storage charges. Outside of Montana the only sections holding any weight of wool now are New Mexico and Southern Colorado, which sections are rapidly selling what is left. The Del Rio wools in Texas have been consigned to east ern houses. The eight months' Kerr ville wools of that state have been sold to Boston parties at a price which is thought to be lower than what was offered for them some time ago. Clip Two-thirds Sold. Approximately two-thirds of tlie clip in Montana has been absorbed so far by mill buyers and interests in the wool trade, according to estimates. The clip is said to be fully as large as that of 1914, which is figured at 30,177,00 pounds. In this connec tion, it is interesting to note the ten dency to increase the production of sheep yielding the medium wools-. The high prices ruling throughout tlie year have stimulated wool growing, es pecially of medium grades. This ten dency is noticeable beyond tlie con fines of Montana, too. it is based upon tlie assumption that medium wools will be in active demand at high prices as long as the war lasts. It is predicted that another season will see a big increase in production of medium wool in Montana, as grow ers already are breeding with that end view. The fact that crossbreds are better than fine-wool sheep for mutton purposes is a favorable ele ment in the situation. The report that Arizona and California interests are buying heavily for breeding pur poses indicates that the movement is more or less general. Crossbred wools tiave been in such sharp demand this season as to give them an entirely fictitious importance for a permanent r NEW FALL TAILORED SUITS Selections of styles and colors that will tempt you to se lect your new suit for fall immediately.

The production, from a conservative standpoint, possibly is beng overdone. Yet an outlet un doubtedly will be available for all de sirable clips, and at full prices, while competition from Australia is in hibited. Recalls Other Years. Regarding the prices this year a comparison of values in Montana be tween this year and other seasons of high values emphasizes the great ex tent of recent advances. In 1909, when so much wool was bought on the sheep's back that the season became known as the "contracting year," con siderable staple was absorbed in Janu ary and February. Buyers then were called off and contracting was not re newed actively until April, when it started at 22 cents, and some of the best clips were sold at 23 and 24 cents. Another high-priced year in Montana wool, 1905, showed opening prices of 23 cents and they advanced as far as 26 cents. 1905 at 23 1-2 cents and this year at 27 cents. Tlie Douglass clip brought 24 1-8 cents in 1905 and 25 1-8 cents tills season. Tlie two clips are among the best known in tlie state. These things are significant of what the war has done for tlie grower, in tlie face of tlie removal of the duty on wool. The Phillips clip sold in Are not to make men work.
