MONTANA CROP REPORT FOR AUGUST 1919 j Grain and Forage Crops Drop Ten Points Since July First—Winter Wheat Average 5.5. Montana. August 11.—A further drop of practically ten points from July 1 to August 1. in the average condition figure of Montana's twelve leading grain and forage crops briefly summarizes the continued deteriora tion of the state's crops during July. The average condition of these crops, as reported by Guy Fitzpatrick. Mon tana field agent for the United States bureau of crop estimates, in his crop statement issued today, is placed at 28.6 per cent of normal. The condi tion on July 1 was 36.1 per cent and on June 1. 73.9 per cent, indicating a total loss of 47 points in the past 60 days. The preliminary estimates on yield i j and production place the average vield per acre of winter wheat at 5.5 bush-1 ms and the total production at 3,702, 000 bushels. Practically all of the ; wheat harvested is light in weight and j mueh of it otherwise not up to Mon tana's usual high quality of grain. The August 1st spring wheat condi tion has dropped to 20 per cent of normal as compared to 33 per cent a month ago, and the prospective pro duction now is for but 7,590,000 bush els. This, with the winter wheat crop, makes a total wheat crop for the state of 31,292,000 bushels, distributed ap proximately as follows: in the coun ties west of the continental divide, 678,000 bushels; in the northern dis trict, from Teton and Chouteau coun ties north of the Missouri river and east to the Dakota line, 3,613,000 bushels; in the central counties, from the divide east to the Musselshell riv er, 2,923,000 bushels; in the southern district from Beaverhead to Yellow stone county, 2,710,000 bushels; and in the eastern counties south of the Missouri river, 1,468,000 bushels. The total wheat loss in the wheat crop, since the preliminary estimates made at the beginning of the season, now amounts to 27,476,000 bushels, which at the average price prevailing, rep resents a direct loss to Montana farm ers of $60,450,000. Grain crops other than wheat have all suffered heavily since the July 1, report.

A. Hagenbuckle, manager of the Jordan basemall team, in which he speaks very highly of the treat ment accorded the visitors from Jor dan who accompanied the hall team ao Glasgow a week ago last Sunday: Jordan, Mont., Aug. 5th, 1919. The Jordan baseball team arrived at Glasgow.at about 10:30 p. m. af ter a very hard ride. There were sev en cars in all, the same being as fol lows: Mr. L. Williams, Garfield coun ty surveyor, having in his car Mr. L. Eastling, deputy clerk of court, and Mrs. Eastling, Bill Taylor of Smoky Buate. Ray Meyers, undersheriff of Gar field county, having in his car Mrs. Chas. Marrs, Miss Miller, Harold War ren and Bland Taylor; W. A. Parker, county commissioner, having in his car, C. J. Taylor, county assessor of Garfield county, Thos. L. Harvey, county clerk, W. A. Hagebuckle, man ager of the Jordan ball team, and W. A. Larson, pitcher for Jordan. Roland V. Taylor, having in his car Mrs. W. C. Henderson, Miss Mar guerite Henderson, Mrs. C. J. Taylor, Miss Dorothy Taylor and Mrs. W. A. Hagenbucklle. Mr. John McKay, having in his car C. A. Larson, A.

The seven cars all left Jordan at about 3:30 p. m. and after a hard trip 10:30 p. m. The team had a work-out on the Glasgow diamond and it sure was an honest to goodness ball park, and ahe boys were glad of the chance to try it out. The game was called at 3 p. m. and the good old game started off with a little pep, but it did not aake long to find out that the Glasgow boys had some team, and they played real j ball there at times, the game ending ; with the score in favor of Glasgow 1 £ 0 2 I All of the people who made the trip to Glasgow will always speak a good word for the town and the people in it, and I, the manager of the team, will say that the team and the Jordan people could not have been treated in better style. The manager of the Glasgow team sure treated the Jordan team fine, fixing hem up in the matter of a few extra suits and several pairs of sox, which were badly needed by the Jor dan team. . Several of the Jordan ladies were invited for an auto ride Sunday morn ing that they enjoyed to the utmost, and to top off the day, the Jordan people were all invited to the show at the Orpheum in the evening and saw Marguerite Clark in "Let's Elope," which turned out to be a very good picture and was well enjoyed by all. The people of Jordan hope that the people of Glasgow will come to Jor dan when we play the return game, and we will do all we can to make them welcome and show them a good time. W. A.

When the sun hangs low in his chariot Like a flaming mass of fire, And the clouds are rift with rainbow hues Like monarchs in rich attire. We see a promise of glory ahead, When the day shall break once more, For by symbols of light are mankind led Away from the Styxian shore. And the God of Peace and the God of War.

Those who saw this popular star in "Shoes," "Creaking Stairs," "Bread," "The Amazing Wife" and other recent suc cesses are- promised another picture of surpassing interest. In "The Unpainted Woman," Miss MacLaren plays the strong role of Gudrun Trygavson, daughter of Knute in whose veins flows the blood of a line of Viking ancestors. The story was written by Sinclair Lewis, the noted short story writer, and gives Miss MacLaren a vehicle in which her true talent as an actress is fully brought out. under the able direction of Tod Browning, who pro If a chapter desires to give an en tertainment in this form, it should notify the publicity department as soon as possible.

WHAT INFANT LAYETTES MEAN. Miss Lavina H. Newell, who is now in Europe investigating the needs of the destitute peoples of the various nations, in a letter written at Paris, says: Now, as to the work for the future, I told Colonel Olds (Red Cross Com missioner for Europe) this morning that I was more than pleased with w hat I had heard in reference to the garments we have sent over, but no thing comes up to the layettes. Wher ever I have been, they have shower ed upon us compliments as to the bles sings they are. If our people only could realize what it means to these poor souls over here, they would work harder than they have ever worked before, to make sure ' that the quota is finished before the committee in northern France have to withdraw. This is the gospel truth, and I only wish I were there to show our women what it means to these people to have given them what they would make if they had the material or the strength or the opportunity.

Thurston Hall, well-known Moros co star, whose virile interpretations of the leading roles in "Ben Hur," Salvation Nell" and "The Girl in Wait ing" have won him a national reputa tion on the legitimate stage, supports Miss MacLaren as leading man in "The Unpainted Woman." His suc cess in acting for the .silver screen is said to be even greater than be hind the footlights. Little Mickey Moore with his de lightful flaxen curls is probably the most loved actor in the entire cast. He, too, is quite a star of note and comes from a family of stars. His mother is Nora Moore, the noted Eng lish actress, and his brother Pat Moore is well known for his work in "The Squaw Man." BASE HOSPITAL NO. 29 CLOSES AT SNELLING Officially the base hospital, No. 29, which has been in operation at Fort Snelling since last fall, has been dis continued. Wounded men who have been cared for there will be distrib uted among other military hospitals and the army personnel, which has been employed at the fort, will be dis charged or assigned to other posts. The hospital closes with an almost miraculous record of cures. It is said that the number of deaths at Fort Snelling has been so few as to attract widespread attention through out civilian hospitals at least. Prac tically no deaths have been due to infection of wounds in arms or legs. It is announced that the fort will be given over to several units of in fantry and for this reason practically all of the bureau of camp service per sonnel of the Red Cross will be kept at the fort until it is clear just what demands will be made upon them for services. Present instructions are that Mr. Buckley and his staff will remain at the fort until the first of the year. A S Unir Copyright 1919 by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. ffiit.

Should there be any great number of these it is expected that the work now being done by the bureau of camp service will be continued under the department of civilian relief. This solves a difficult problem in connec tion with the returned soldier. GAUZE IS DISTRIBUTED TO THIRTY HOSPITALS Gauze taken from the warehouses of the American Red Cross is now being shipped free of charge to thir ty hospitals in Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana. After a thorough investigation, Washington headquarters made the al lotments.

YOUNG HENS BEST LAYERS. There are people who have the right variety of fowls, who hose and feed them properly and yet who can not obtain eggs early in the winter be cause their fowls are too old. It is seldom that it pays to keep hens for laying after they are two and a half year; not that they will not give a profit, but that younger fowls will give a greater profit.
