L. Deering of Chicago. Standing in a virgin forest yester day morning, about 35 Missoula people heard Mrs. Charles L. Deering of Chi cago outline her dream of many years for a summer colony for eastern tour ists. The location is two miles north of Corlett, just off the Seeley Lake road. The beauty of the place is ideal. Snow caped mountains of the Kootenai range rise in the distance and nearer lie foothills covered ,with forests. In the valley are the 80 acres of the tract under consideration and on which, it is hoped, there will be built a camp to meet every desire of pleasure-seeking, outdoor-loving travelers. The whole plan is more or less ten tative, and the details have not been worked out but, in the words of Mrs. Deering, "we will organize a $200,000 stock company, of which stock amount ing to $100,000 will be sold now. Of this $50,000 common stock. Missoula people will be given a chance to ac quire $15,000 or $20,000 in stock." The camp will be built around a central building to contain an office, a dining hall to seat 100 people, the capacity of the camp, with servants' quarters on the second floor. Enough cabins to house 100 people will be built, furnished with such con veniences as running water, electric lights, and washing machines. The cabins will have from two to six roms, each containing a completely equipped kitchen. On another separ ate piece of ground a girls' camp will be constructed on an artificial lake. This wil be carried on by the girls themselves in military style. They will Taise much of their awn food, anil will take care of it themselves. An important feature is to be the artificial lake in the hollow below the camp. A stream five feet wide and one foot deep will be dug from Morell Creek to the lake and will run out of the lake. The lake will be 300 feet long and 100 feet wide. Men will be employed to take care of a garden, a dairy, and a poultry farm. For the amusement of the guests, a dance hall will be built over looking the lake. The maximum charge for tourists furnished with horses and cabins supplied with baths and elec tricity will be $55 a week. For oth ers $30. It is planned also to con struct rest camps at a day's journey from the camp. Nearby streams will be stocked with fish. 'Hunters, too, will find the camp a good headquart ers. The deer and bird shooting has always been good in the hills around the lake. y Amor»g the visitors at the camp site yesterday were: Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Deering, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. LeClaire, G. A. Wilcox, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Pet terson, P. S. Brown, Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Forbis, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Muckler, J. M, Keith, Frank ßeckwith.

Several officials of the C., M & St. P. railroad were present. The railroad company is much inter ested in the project, which wil be one of a proposed group of recreation points along the line. Several promi nent Chicago people also are interest ed and it is confidently believed that a quarter of the stock will be sub scribed for in Misoula which would be benefited in many way by the tourist colony. Needless to say, the residents of the great Blackfoo't val ley are enthusiastic for it. It is ex pected that the company will be or ganized very soon and that the plans will steadily materialize.

They say that had they had the job of making the weather during the past two months, they could not have done as good a job. One may well believe it after looking over the fields of alfalfa and grain, and seeing the fat cattle and horses on the ranges. 'From Havre east to the Dakota line along the Great Northern it is the same story, with ranchmen pre dicting from 30 to 45 bushel crops. 'I have not been west of Havre recently, and do not know so much about that section. "During the week there have been hail storms in some sections, the most severe visiting Roosevelt and Sheri dan counties.

The very short and very narrow skirt Is no more, but it Is not to be suc ceeded by skirts going to the other extreme, for street wear at least. This is a case of self-determination for American women and the long skirt Is mi abomination on the street. The suit at the right of the two pictured embodies all the promised Innovations hi style. In a conservative way : the long, wide skirt, the sharp ly defined waistline, and it awaits the approval of many women. It is made of a soft wool suiting with a plain skirt.

"That 'Better Farming' has become something more than a slogan," con tinued Mr. Greenfield, "is proved by the very large amount of summer fal lowed land in evidence this year. The work which has been done by those who know the value of the summer fallow system in bearing fruit. Some farmers instead of leaving the land 'without any crop have planted corn and kept it clean. Others allowed noth ing to grow on the summer fallow. It is on the land which was summer fallowed last year that the prospect is for the largest yield per acre."
