AGRICULTURE GAINING GROUNDS IN SCHOOLS Forty Montana High Schools Will Have Instruction in Agriculture This Year. Bozeman, Montana, August 21.— Forty Montana high schools will give instruction in agriculture during the coming year under the provisions of the Smith-Hughes act, according to Prof. M. J. Abbey of the Montana state college who is supervisor of agricultural education in Montana. Nine of the schools are still unpro vided with teachers and considerable difficulty is being experienced in find ing teachers. The salaries run from $1600 to $2000 a yeai\ Five Montana State college graduates are to teach in Montana this year, but most of the agricultural graduates in this state are engaged directly in agricultural work, either for themselves or for the government. It has been neces sary, therefore, to go to many other states to find teachers for this com paratively new high school subject. Professor Abbey is to be in charge of special training for the agricultural teachers of the state, plans for which are now being worked out. A large number of the agricultural teachers were present at a vocational conference at the college a short time ago, and discussed and studied the plans for the work in this state. REVEREND R. H. STONE TO ENTER NEW FIELD Local Methodist Minister Promoted at Church Conference—Tp Take Over Havre Pastorate. The people of Glasgow and the sur rounding country will regret to learn that the Rev. R. H. Stone of the Meth odist church will not be returned to his charge the coming year. Although the official board voted unanimously to request his return to this field it was thought best at the annual con ference which was held in Great Falls last week, to appoint him to a larger field. For this reason he was ap pointed to fill the pastorate at Havre, Rev. R, Stone. which is the largest charge, in the Milk River district. Rev. Stone came to this city three years ago from Scobey, where he had accomplished splendid work. Since coming here the work of the church has been put upon a much stronger basis both spiritually and financially, and had it not been for the war and the drought conditions a beautiful church edifice would have been erect e d> the basement of which is already built, and which cost approximately $8000. Rev. Stone is a man of bx*oad vision and well-fitted to fill the important charge assigned to him. 'He has made many friends throughout the city who though not necessarily connected with him in church affairs, nevertheless ap preciate his sterling qualities. He is a graduate of Kimball college and is also a graduate of Willamette College of Law and a member of the Oregon bar, as is also his esteemed wife. The best wishes of the people of Glasgow go with them to their new field of labor. On Wednesday evening a farewell reception will be tendered Rev. and Mrs. Stone in the church commencing at 8 o'clock, to which the genei-al pub lic is cordially invited. The Rev. Joseph R. Jeffery of Har lowton has been appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the removal of Rev. Stone. He comes to the church highly recommended as one of the strongest pulpit men in northern Montana. DUSTIN FARNUM'S NEW SCREEN PLAY BEST TO DATE Those who have had the opportun ity of seeing "A Man's Fight" declare it to be Dustin Farnum's best pro duction to date. In this United Picture Theatres pro duction Dustin Farnum has oppor tunity to gratify the desire he has for some time expressed to lay aside temporarily his accustomed cowboy roles, and, in fact, he is seen in the first part of the picture in evening dress. The earlies scenes are laid in the east with Mr. Farnum in the role of a young and somewhat profligate only son of a wealthy and aristocratic New York family. Laboring under a misconception of a tragic event which occurred in the aristocratic household, Dustin Farnum sacrifices himself for the sake of his adored and adorable sister. His resolve to shield her at all hazards from a charge of crime involves his being sent to Sing Sing. The locale then changes to the virile west where the young aristocrat, hav ing served his sentence, is essaying to begin life anew. At the very moment of assured success he is confronted with the record of his earlier career. The denouement of the crashing crisis is said to form one of the most thrill ing scenes of this big picture. The magnificent cast in support of Dustin Farnum includes Lois Wilson, Dorothy Wallace, Aggie Herring, Jo seph Dowling, Wedgewood Nowell, Harry Van Meter, eBrt Appling and Betty Bouton. —Orpheum, Thursday, August 28. WINTER PLANS FOR STOCKMEN. (By C. N. Arnett, Profess^' of Animal Husbandry, Montana Experiment Station.) Stock men and farmers should con sider the future of their business very carefully before deciding upon the steps they will take to meet the un usual feed situation this fall and win ter. No one is wise errough to accurately foretell the future of the live stock j business. However, men who have j .i_. • . j. ..j, . , made this industry their life study and business are planning to continue their work with confidence that the future market and price will give them satisfactory returns on their la bor and investment. One man expressed himself in this way: "Once we are by this winter the going for the stock man is sure to be good." The immediate prob lem for the stock men is to prepare for the winter in such manner that the feed bill will be as small'as pos sible and so he will come out in the spring still in the live stock business. There has been too much talk about the stockman closing out his business this fall because of feed shortage. It is easy to get out, very easy, but (unless all signs fail in dry weather) it will be much more difficult and more expensive getting back into the business in the next few years than it will be to stay in at this time, no matter what the winter's feed bill. Reducing Herds and Flocks. Breeding herds and flocks should be culled and cut and in most cases only the good type, strong females of breeding age retained. The following rules will apply to most herds and flocks in the state. Keep all the good, young breeding cows and ewes that can possibly be wintered in good strong condition. Sell all dry cows or ewes that will make beef or mutton. Sell all old thin, shelly cows or ewes. Sell all calves and lambs. Breeders cannot figure on this year alone. All admit that the financial accounts of most men in the stock business will show much hevier entries on the debit side than on the credit side of the ledger this year. The only possible chance to make good the loss of this year is to keep all the good, strong breeding females of prime age that can be wintered at a reasonable cost. It must be realized at this time that the live stock business is not one that can be sold out and bought back without considerable loss. A few tons of hay may save breeders several years of work in rebuilding their herds and flocks to their present satisfac tory sizes and state of productiveness. The fat dry cows and heifers are worth more now than they ever will be again, and their value as breedei's is questionable so it is only good bus iness to sell this class of stuff under present conditions. Without question the old thin, shel ly, breeding stock will net their own ers less money on the tnarket than the good young cows and ewes but since most herds and flocks must be reduced the stuff that will eat the most hay and that will show the heav iest losses during the winter should be among the first to be weeded out. Calves and lambs, or all grade stock that is too young to breed this sum mer or fall should go to market or sell to the feeders in the corn belt. Experience has proven that it takes more expensive feeds to satisfactorily winter these young animals than it does the mature stock. Ordinarily breeders should select a certain per centage of each year's produce to replace the old and unprofitable fe males and also to improve the qual ity of their breeding herds and flocks, but feed prices, especially for those who have to buy, are strong argu ment in favor of retaining only pro ductive breeding animals in the herds and flocks this year.
