brands as false a story published in
Monday morning newspapers that
John G. Margelin, killed last week in
Spokane in an attempted hold up, had
been released from the Montana peni
tentiary to do detective work against

circulated to cloud the investigation
being made of affairs of the prison.
It was claimed that Margelin, who
was discharged from,, the prison on
June 15 this year, had told former
convicts in Spokane that he had been

Added Montana Attraction Dream of
Mrs Chas. L. Deering of
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
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,
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
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. Secre
tary Roberts of the chamber of com
merce and Mrs. Roberts. All of the
visiteors expressed delight with the
flan vhkh wag regarded as entirely
practicable. 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.

"Old time residents of Valley and

field, 'that never has there ben a more
favorable season for crops. They say
that had they had the job of making

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.

"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."
