The list of members are D. C. Gray, A. McKillop, E. F. Mills, J. E. Hauf, J. P. Doyle, E. D. Yarbough, W. De zelle, C. P. Frost, C. A. Hartson & Sons of Hamilton; Harry Fierce, Walter Tyrrell, E. E.

Elderkln of Como; Ford & Hollister of Darby, C. A. Schräge of Florence. This gives the association an ex cellent start, says L. A. Campbell, secretary, and, with the hearty co operation that is evident on the part of all members and others who are interested in the work, should mean a most successful year. While the first month's work ne cessarily consists mainly in the or ganization of the association and starting of the records for each cow in the members' herds, some work in the readjusting of rations fed was started and a list of stock for sale and wanted by the members was also partially completed. After another month or two the tester will have a complete list of such stock. As the second month's tests are made, some work in culling out of unprofitable cows will be started and then continued more rigorously as the evidence from the additional monthly tests is obtained. A great deal of Interest was mani fested In the feeding problems, due to a large extent to the present high prices of grains and a great deal of valuable Information will be gather ed next month on the varying costs and productions obtained under dif ferent conditions as there are many different kinds of rations being fed in the various herds. This data will become Increasingly valuable as each month's records are added. Malta—The dates for the Phillips county fair have been set for Septem ber 6 to 9. D. D 1 ■SR**!

"The House That Honor Built " HENNINGSEN COMPANY, BUTTE, MONTANA I SETTLERS WILL FLOCK TO STATE MONTANA DUE FOB BIG INFLUX THIS YEAR, RAILROAD OF FICIALS BELIEVE. Certain That a Family Will Be Placed on Every Irrigated Tract of the North; Colonization Plans Working Out Nicely. With 210 persons, experienced farmers, of irrigated lands In south ern Idaho, already settling on north ern Montana irrigation projects, the the colonization movement is now at a stage that assures the placing of a family on every 80 and 160-acre tract of the projects of the Great North ern in northern Montana, according to G. W. Lincoln, agricultural de velopment agent for the road. The first of the new colonists went oh the Chestnut valley project near Cascade last year and the others set tled on the Milk river project near Harlem and Chinook. A banquet was given at Harlem, recently, by the res idents and business men of that place at which the new colonists were guests. The banquet was in the na ture of a reception for the new set tlers. In addition to the Idaho colo nists, E. C. Leedy, immigration agent for the Great Northern, Mr. Lincoln, K. L. Molen of Great Falls and Chas. D. Greenfield, of Helena, agricultural development agents, were guests at the banquet. The colonization of northern Mon tana projects by experienced irrigat ors of southern Idaho began early in January, 1923. Ten families have al ready arrived on the Milk river pro ject this year and others will follow. They come from Twin Falls, Idaho, Falls,Firth and other districts in southern Idaho. About 75 per cent of the families are Mormon in reli gion. The inducements offered by Mon tana irrigated farms are reasonable prices; good terms of payment, per mitting the colonists to improve and build up the tracts they purchase.

Posing as his friends, two men, the name of one being known to the police, are reported to have accom panied W. H. Stinson to Butte from his home at Dillon. In Butte the two men, according to reports at the police station, took Stinson to the Bennett hotel, where they rented a room. When the pro prietor of the place visited Stinson's room he found him helpless in bed. His companions of the day before were gone and with them Stinson's wallet containing $300 and his gold watch and chain. r Fergus Ships Carload Eggs Another Indication of the great growth of the poultry industry in Fergus county is furnished by the fact that recently a Lewistown con cern shipped to Boston a carload of Fergus county eggs, the first such shipment ever made from here. There were approximately 150,600 eggs in the car, all gathered in that county. A good many farmers are taking up turkey raising. White of Buffalo, in Judith Basin, is planning to have a large flock of turkeys. Mr. White hopes to solve the grasshopper problem on his place with the gobblers as they are good "hopper" hunters. Ex-Senator B. C. Farmers Holding Wheat With 1,402,000 bushels of wheat to be moved over the Butte division of the Great Northern, 126 grain cars are standing idle in the Great Falls yards, according to Superintendent Fred Wear, and a similar situation has prevailed for the last month. Mr. Wear declares farmers are holding their grain, evidently in the hope of realizing a better price next month.
