Stock Poisoning Plants.
The department of agriculture has
issued a preliminary report on the stock
poisoning plants of Montana, by V. K.
Chesnut and E. V. Wilcox. Mr. Wilcox.
whs in Dupuyer last summer
gathering specimens. The r port if full
of valuable information, from which we
cull the following:
"The stockmen.have no general, simple
and reliable rule for selecting antidotes
or for the applica'.ion of remedial meas
ures. This deficiency may bo supplied
to a largo extent by adopting the regular
use of a permanganate of potash sol
ution which is a very effective antidote
i;i some cases of poisoning by plants and
chemical compounds of plants.
Equal weights of permanganate of
potash and sulphate of aluminium

prescribed as a remedy for poisoning. It

that all the mixture should
is important
be in solution, as the solid particles ma
kill the anima!.
* The most important poisonous species
* The most important poisonous species
of plants are death camas, also known
as poisonous ca ma», lobelia, squirrel food,
wild onion, poison sego, lily and misery
grass. It is a smooth, simple, stemmed
perennial, with a coaled,onion-like bulb,
narrow, linear leaves and a short, ter
minal cluster of yellowish green flowers.
It grows every where iti Montana in
moderately moist places on open ranges
mid is found in South Dakota, Nebraska,
Utah and California. Other dangerous
plants are larkspur, lupines, the water
hemlock, the white lico, ergot, cow cockle
and ehowny milk weed.
The majority of plants that are espec
ially dangerous Juring the wet months
of May and June are so far advanced by
the time the sheep are taken to the
mountain ranges, that they are not
eaten. The smaller species of larkspur
and "death carnas" ara so dry and
shriveled by the middle of July that
they are unpalatable to any animal.
The water hemlock does not grow so
abundantly in the mountains as along
the small streams and irrigating ditches
of the plains and becomes so largo and
coarse by the time mentioned that it i s
scarcely ever eaten by sheep.
The tall larkspur, so far as the ex
perts from the agricultural department
observed, does not grow on the plains in
any part of Montana, and is too coarse
to be eaten by sheep during the season
from J uly and October.
The sheep owners have found by ex
perience that these monn ain ranges»
which are so dangerous tor sheep during
the early summer, are quite safe from
July to September, inclusive. The safety
of the mountain ranges, however, is some
what affected by tbo presence of species
of lupines. These plants are poisonous
during certain stages and -especially
when containing ripe seeds.
Sheep seldom cat lupine on the range
during midsummer. If however, they
/ tjat it when the seeds are ripe, it invari
i' /ably causes disaster. After the eany fall
frost the pods rapidly open and the seeds
fall,upon thegiound. After that period
the plants may be eaten with impunity
by sheep or other afliowws.
Where salt is wanting stock
readily eat noxious plants than
they are receiving it regularly in
able quantities."
"Froggy's" Report.
Some old-timers were moved to rem
iniscences by the note in The Tribune a
few days ago about "Froggy's" stealing
Charley Sheridan's grave, and John
Harris, of the Benton & St. Louis Cattle
Co., said that it was Dot "Froggy"; it
was himself. A man had committed
suicide on upper High wood and Mr.
Harris brought the body in for burial.
He found old Charley's grave too strong
a temptation to resist- Speaking of
Froggy brought up the subjcct of his
famous report to Henry Kennerly, which
was a never-failing jest 23 years ago.
„ , T . a
Froggy took up the first ranch on Pend
, , ■
d Oreille coulee, the place now ownel by
' r
J. W. Gladden and* where Lucille post
office is located. It is on th.3 "whisky
trail," as the road from Benton to
Wnoop-up was called, and its owner
made a rather precarious and peculiar
living without crops or stock. Before
that, however, he had woiked for and
with most of the old time traders, and
Henry Kennerly left him in charge of a
little trading post on lower Badger creek
on the Piegar. reserve, while he was in
Helena on business, and gave Froggy in
structions to let him know every occur
renco of importance, including crop
prospects. Mr. Kennerly got the follow
ing letter in a couple of weeks, and I be
lieve it subsequently became part of the
records of the federal court:
"Hon Henry Kennerly, Esquire; Dear
Hank—An Indian called Bull's J'.ack
Fat came here yesterday. He said he
was a chief. I shot him. He is
! The potatoes are looking line. I will
make some more whisky tomorrow. Re
spectfully, Froggy."— G. F. Tribune.
Outlaws of Alaska.
Tacoma, Wash, Special, May 2.—Of
all the sections of the Far North of which
but little is known -'The Black Hole of
Alaska" is the best illustration. The
government has plans for exploiting the
district this year, but if the attempt is
made there will be little reported for a
year at least and probably longer. Win
C. Lambert, who is now stopping here,
during a stay of three years in Alaska,
made an attempt with a party of miners
to explore the region. The party left St."
Michaels and after months of trial re
turned to Nome willing to quit Alaska.
"We suceeedqd in getting farther
north than the Pilgrim river," said Mr.
Lambert in telling the story, "and from
the Indians we met on the way and at
Pilgrim river we learned that if we were
able to get into the interior we would
find a very rich country. The natives,
however, knew very little of the district
far the reason it is considered too hard
for them to enter.
"It is generally supposed and has
been ever since gold was first discovered
in Alaska that the richest of the whole
country is the Black Hole. The section
receives its name from the fact that it is
infested with the toughest kind of ujor
tais that ever graced the earth. For the
greater part they are escaped exiles from
Russia, or from the peual camps in
Siberia. Many years ago they began to
go to the district and according to che
history of the stction obtainable in the
North, they were there long before th e
time Russia sold the territory to the
United States. So far as known the
Russian government has never made any
attempt to capture the escaped prison
ers. as the rigors of the region aul the
desperate character of tue, men would
have made such an undertaking more
hazardous tuan proùtabl 13 .
The country approaching the district
is the most mountanous that I have yet
found in my travels in .Alaska. The
weather is so o Id that no white man I
have seen successfully attempted to cross
the bleak mountains. The r gors and
cold were too much for our party
There are very few Indian settlements
as ) ou approach the district, and when
you are once within its boundaries there
are none at all. The people are & a cut
throat-class and have no law other than
that which they consider just between
themselves. By the Indians we were
told the Russians would put us to death
as soon as they met us. We continued
our travels until it meant simply death
to go forward with our limited supplies
and in the face ol' the difficulties ahead
of us. Should the government attempt
to send an expedition into the country
this summer, it is my opinion it will fail.
I believe it will be years before the dis
trict is explored, and when it is done it
will be necessary to send a branch of the
militia there. There have been reports
of great gold-bearing creeks in the
country, but as yet these lack conlirma
j tion. There is no man living that can
appreciate that section of Alaska unless
he has been there."
Kurd ttei'uses to Pay.
An answer to the complaint in the case
of the Conrad National Bank vs Levi 0.
Burd, an Indian, was filed vith the clerk
of the district court today. Burd among
other things claims that ho does not owe
the amount claimed by the bank, or any
other amount, as he has never- received
the total consideration for which he
made the note to Haggerty. Burd ne
gotiated for 80 nead of
cattle, agreeing
to pay $1,600 for the same, lie alleges
that he as naver received but 40 head
and for these he has a credit of §800 and
an additional credit of §125. The note
he claims through his attorneys was non
negotiable aud the Conrad bank had full
knowledge of its conditions when it re
ceived the note.—Kalispell Bee.

A cough is not a disease but a symp
tom. Consumption and bronchitis,
which are the most dangerous and ratal
diseases, have for their first indication a
persistent cough, and if properly treated
as soon as this cough appears are easily
cured. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has proven wonderfully successful, and
gained its vyda reputation and extensive
sale by its success in curing the diseases
which cause coughing. If it is not ben
