200 additional deputies.
Since the first outbreak there have
been numerous clashes between the
I. W. W. pickets and minenj employed

pickets employed by the strikers have
been swarming about the entrances to
the mines in an effort to turjx back

ICE AND WATER DO
$40,000 DAMAGE TO
A twelve-foot wall of ice and water
which swept down Cut Bank river on
Wednesday morning of last week tore
out the county bridge which connects
that city with the Blackfeet reserva
tion, demolished the buildings of the
municipal pumping station, partially
destroyed a new dam constructed last
summer to supply powerjfor the light
ing plant and did a total damage of
about $40,000. ,
The board of county commissioners
have already made arrangements for
the erection of a temporary bridge.
This is the first time since 1903 that
difficulties have been experienced with
high watr in the vicinity of Cut Bank.
The ice jam occurred in a deep gorge
above the city.
HEALTH LECTURE TO HIGH
SCHOOL BOYS YESTERDAY
Dr. R. C. Dillavon of Billings spoke
to all the boys of the Glasgow high
school Wednesday morning at the Or
pheum theatre, on the subject of
"Keeping Fit." The lectures are be
ing given by Dr. Dillavon ùnder the
supervision of the Montana state board
of health co-operating with the Unit
ed States public health service.
Dr. Dillavon laid down the following
rules for keeping fit for war and
Exercise wisely, eat wholesome food,
get all the fresh air possible, take
sufficient rest and keep clean.
The address was interesting and in
structive and the boys who attended
were highly pleased.
Schools in the east have adopted a
novel and effective system of teaching
spelling, called the "baseball method."
The school room serves as the "dia
mond," the corners of the room as the
bases, the pupils as players and the
teacher the umpire and pitcher.
The class is divided into two sides
and each side takes a turn "at bat."
There are nine innings to a game, each
side having three "outs" to an inning.
The teacher, "on the mound," pro
nounces three words to the "batter."
If any one of three words is misspell
ed the batter is out and is sent back
to the "bench". If all three words are
spelled correctly the batter scores
hit and takes first base. He is ad
vanced a base each time another bat
ter on his side spells the three words
pronounced by the teacher correctly
and the "runs" scored count for that
The teachers say the method is very
effective and is the best they know
Fearing a flooding of the mimes, the
operating companies have patrolled all

SEEMS VERY FAVORABLE
Crop Prospects in Montana for Com
ing Season Look Good—Farm La
bor Situation Unsatisfactory.
A favorable outlook for winter
wheat, rye in good condition, an unsat
isfactory farm labor situation, and
a large reduction in the number of
breeding sows are shown in the April
crop report for Montana issued by F.
Beier, Montana field agent for the
United States bureau of crop esti
Winter wheat.—The winter wheat
outlook for Montana shows an im
provement over last fall and the lack
of moisture at seeding time has been
followed by sufficient moisture to pro
duce a condition 83 per cent of nor
mal compared with 91 per cent one
year ago and a ten year average of
93 per cent. The condition on Decem
ber 1, 1919, was 80 per cent compar
ed with a ten year average of 94 per
cent. A few reports of limited areas
that have suffered from winter kill
ing and other damage in the central
and north central parts of the state
have been received. The condition at
this time forecasts a yield of 7,700,
000 bushels. The acreage sown last
fall is estimated at 425,000 acres com
pared with 005,000 acres in the fall
of 1918. Considering the condition
at seeding time last fall it can safe
ly be stated that winter wheat has
survived the winter in a condition far
beyond expectations and should Mon
tana be favored with good moisture
conditions this season the crop will
no doubt be good.
The winter wheat outlook for the
United States is less encouraging with
a condition of 75.6 per cent compared
with 99.8 per cent one year ago and
a ten year average of 84.1 per cent.
The forecasted yield for the United
States is 483,(>17 bushels, compared
with an estimated production 731,630,
000 bushels in 1919, and 565,000 bu
shels in 1918. The acreage sown in
the fall of 1919 was 38,770,000 acres
compared with 50,489,000 in the fall
Rye.—The condition of rye is esti
mated at 89 per cent of normal com
pared with 92 per cent one year ago
and a ten year average of 95 per cent.
The forecasted production of rye is
1,041,000 bushels based on an estimat
ed planted acreage of 65,000 acres.
Farm labor.—Reports from all coun
ties in the state show that the farm
labor, situation is unsatisfactory. The
supply of farm labor is estimated to
be 85 per cent of last year and 74
per cent of normal. The demand for
farm labor is estimated to be 90 per
cent of last year and 87 per cent of
normal. With the shortage of farm
labfir and the high wages, there seems
to have developed a feeling among the
farmers that they can afford to plant
only such acreage as can be handled
by themselves and with the assistance
of their neighbors. The whole out
look ténds toward conservative farm
ing since the farmer feels that the
present condition will not result in a
reasonable profit after taking into
consideration the expense of operating
his farm and the work of himself and
Breeding sows.—The number of
breeding sows on the farms in Mon
tana show a serious reduction and is
estimated at 70 per cent of the num
ber on hand one year ago and but 64
per cent of the usual number. This
reduction seems to be the result of
high feed and a tendency to sell
breeding sows when prices are high.
The number of breeding sows in the
United States is estimated to be 90.1
per cent of the number held one year
