The department of commerce, through the bureau of the census, an nounces the following figures from the 1920 census of agriculture for the United States. The 1,981,514 pure-bred cattle in the United States on January 1, 1920, according to the fourteenth census, included 1,064.912 cattle of beef breeds and 916,602 cattle of dairy breeds. The pure-bred beef cattle were distributed among the several breeds as follows: Aberdeen Angus. 108. 524; Devon, 1,194; Galloway. 6.920: Hereford, 405.580; Polled Durham. 61,755; Shorthorn, 416,995: all other beef breeds, including animals report ed as purebred with breed not speci fied. 63,944.

MONTANA SHIPS 689 CARS SPUDS LATE OCTOBER TOTAL ACCORD ING TO REPORT OF FEDERAL CROP STATISTICIAN Total Shipments Expected to Reach 1,400 Car Loads for the Year; Po tatoes Sell Up to gl.70 on Chicago Market, and as High as 62.30 in Los Angeles. Potato shipments from Montana this fall had reached 689 carloads on October 29, according to figures made public a few days ago by F. W. Beier, Jr., federal crop statistician for Montana. Last year only 272 carloads of potatoes had been ship ped on that date. Total shipments last year were 915 carloads, Beier's records show. He predicts that there will be 1,400 carloads in the 1921 movement from this state. Potato prices are reported to be in a temporary- decline. Growers at Idaho Falls, one of the leading west ern shipping points, were getting $1.15 to $1.25 for Netted Gem and $1 for the Idaho Rural, a late white potato. Idaho Falls enjoys a slight advantage over Montana in the mat ter of freight rates to the principal markets, so the Montana price would be a little lower. Reports have been received In Helena, however, of the sale of two carloads of potatoes at Hamilton this week at $1.35. In Chicago a few days ago the d White potato was bringing $1.50 and $1.70. Early Ohio pota toes from the Red River region of Minnesota and North .Dakota were selling for $1.50 to $1.60. The Kansas City price was $1.50 to $1.70 on Red River Ohios, and field run spuds were selling at 1 aroun( j $ 1 . 25 . Los Angeles offered the strongest j potato market. Quotations there re cently were $2.25 to $2.30 on Idaho jxetted Gems and $2 for the Idaho R urata. Freight rates to Los An |seles are far higher than to the Kan sas city and Chicago markets. 0 RAILROADS KILL THIRTY PERSONS THAT IS MONTANA'S TOTAL FOR YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1921. * 1 I j There Were 353 Injuries on Rail- roads During Same Period; Pas- sengers Bear Charmed Lives; Most of Casualties Were Among Em- ployes; Railroad Mileage. Thirty persons were killed on rail ! roads in Montana during the year lending September 30, according* to advance figures from the annual re I port of the state railroad commission, [made public a few days ago. Injur ies were suffered by 353. No railroad passenger lost his life in this state during the year. Only 23 passengers were injured. Em ployes of the roads, naturally, led in the casualty records with 12 killed and 293 injured. Of persons carried by the railroads under contract or agreement, one was killed and four injured. This classification takes in mail clerks, livestock caretakers and persons in charge of refrigerator or other cars. Seven trespassers were killed and 13 injured. Ten others, not trespassers, were killed and 43 injured. The Gilmore & Pittsburgh, the Soo line and the Montana, Wyoming and Southern got by the whole year with out an accident. All are small sys tems, except the Soo, which, however, has only a small part of its lines here. There were no fatalities on the Billings and Central Montana, the Burlington, the Montana Southern, the Montana Western, the Oregon Short Line, White Sulphur Springs and Yellowstone park roads. Of the 12 employes who lost their lives, the Great Northern had six, the Northern Pacific four and the Mil waukee two. The Northern Pacific killed three trespassers, the Great Northern two, the Milwaukee one, and the Butte, Anaconda & Pacific one. Of persons not trespassers or employes, the Northern Pacific killed five, the Great Northern four the Milwaukee one and the Burlington one. The record of the roads on em ployes injured was: Great Northern, 136; Northern Pacific. 98; Milwau kee, 41; Burlington, 9; Oregon Short Line, 3 ; Montana Southern, 3 ; Butte Anaconda & Pacific. 2: Billings and Central Montana, 1. Montana's total railroad mileage is 7,195.38. That is a gain of but 7 3 miles over the total of the receding year. Main lines in the state are 5,033.33 miles, branch lines and sid ings are 1,668.06 miles, main line double track is 230.38 miles and lines operated under lease are 264 83 miles. Leadership in railroad mileage Is almost a tie, but the Great Northern noses out the Northern Pacific with 2,398.25 miles to its rival's 2,384.94. The Milwaukee is third with 1,567 60 miles. me iSfsm ihm.

"Thimble-rigging" of grain scales in Montana's 800 elevators is very rare, but three decidedly clever in stances of tampering to trim the far mer were discovered by George H. Berry, chief of the scale testing divi sion of the state department of agri culture. The balance ball on scale beams was the point of attack by the trick sters, Berry said. This is screwed fast to the bar ordinarily, but in the three instances discovered the scale operator had taken the ball off and made the screw socket loose. This permitted working the ball three fourths of an inch each way. Lost Bushel on Each Load When the farmer would come in with a load of grain, the operator would move the ball forward, making the load weigh light. Then when the grain had been unloaded, the operator would move the ball the other way, making the wagon weigh heavy. The farmer lost about a bu shel of grain on each load through this maneuver. "We have had to reject a number of scales," Berry said. "The princi pal fault is in construction, although we have run across some ingenious 'baling wire' repairs that werte more inaccurate than anything else. Scales sent out by the factories ordinarily are perfect, but persons Installing them have often had trouble in erect ing them. With the correction of these construction faults, we will have In Montana a pretty good grain weighing service." Inspected by Three Districts For the grain scale inspection drive,Jhe state was divided into three districts. Most of the work has been completed, and within a month every elevator will have been visited, Mr. Berry said. He has finished up the central Montana region and now has the territory west of the Rocky moun tains. His headquarters are'at Hel ena.
