Just before going ln I saw the plane on my right turning to cross in ifront of me. Sud denly I saw a machine of the same type as mine appear out of the cloud about 50 feet awav, making straight for me. "Instinctively I Jammed' my nose hard down nnd w'ent as near a nose dive as possible. The other aeroplane did the same. I turned. The other turned into me. "I was in cold perspiration all over by this time, so 1 thought 'Here goes; if I am going to crash, it might as well he complete.' So straight for it I went. We got closbr and closer, and biff! my machine ahd -its mirage in the clouds met. "It seemed like a hideous nightmare, and I can still see that machine doing its utmost to crash into me.

The booklet adds I Montana's estimated population of 754,200 produced in 1916, $342,000,000, divided into mineral wealth of $145, 000,000; farm products, $121,000,000; livestock. $54.000,000; wool, $8,000,000; lumber, $8.000,000, and coal, $6,000,000, according to a booklet just off the press issued by Charles I). Greenfield, commissioner of agriculture and pub licity. This booklet will l»e distributed through railroads, chambers of com merce, realty dealers and others throughout the United States and in some parts of the old world. Among the subjects touched upon in the booklet are Montana's climate, schools, assessed \aluation, railroad development, productivity of the soil, the influx of homesteaders, mining, natural resources and the reason for Montana's motto. "First in Qualit First in Quantit, that Montana has "good roads for tou Ists, two great national parks, magnifi cent mountain scenery nnd excellent fishing and hunting.'* Also the pam phlet says that the hook is to give re liable data from which honest conclu sions may he drawn. In referring to the successes of farmers it says; "Although less than one-eighth of the tillable land of the state is under the plow, Montana now ranks sixth among the nations of the Union in the production of wheat, sixteenth in oats, second in flax, thirteenth in barley and nineteenth in potatoes.*' According to the report of the United States department of agriculture. Mon tana's wheat production has increased enormouslv in 10 years. In 1906 the crop was 3.297,000 bushels, the yield of 137 389 acres, with a farm value of $2,110.000. In 1916. 1.485.000 acres yielded 28.635,000 bushels of wheat. Valued at $46,134,000. The corn pro duct'on in the same period has in creased in farm value from $60,536 to *1.720.000: oats from *3.740.812 to $n, 788.000; barley from $264.504 to $2.022. i 000; rve from «27.344 to $197.000; po tatoes * from $1,307.259 to *5.850,000; hay from *6.155.062 to *15.422,000; flax from *298.260 to $7.658.000. The assessment of property for pur^ poses of taxation is shown in the gigantic strides since 1890. when 16 counties, with 4.930.196 acres, were as sessed at $112,916.272. The 1916 report shows 41 counties, with 33,565,923 acres valued at $48<.898.353. An acre of land in Montana is worth more than an acre anywhere else, as shown by the federal crop report, giv ing the average per acre production in bushel ' 1 * 1 i*..-« 1 12 principal agricultural states of the Union. The same report shows the value per acre of Montana land to the farmer to be worth more than in any other state in wheat, hay and potatoes alone. The Inst survey shows that there are 16.649.725 acres of unreserved and unappropriated public land available in Montana for home stead entry. Mining, livestock, coal mining, wool growing, lumbering and hydro-electric development are also discussed. PUBLISHERS HIT HARD BY THE REGULATIONS London, April 2.—American publish ers of books and magazines are not the only ones who stand to lose money by the new order of the governm* rtt restricting the importations of pub lient ions. The British publishers have found that they also are hit pretty hard. It was a growing custom for English publishers to have their hooks printed in the United States and the loose sheets transported and bound in Eng land. In that manner they secured the American copyright, which is ap plicable only to books printed in the states. This is all done away with by the newest restrictions. The American publishers of maga zines and periodicals, for which Eng I land has become such a fertile field, will, of course, feel the wmrst effects of the order against importations. The only way the reader can now procure his American magazine is by ordering It direct from the publishers in the United States. and othef WOrkerS WnO WUSt _ ■ , , have enduring strength, take 1 HUH!

Geologist Discovers Evi dence of Communica tion by Water. Washington, April 2.—Geologists have long known that the Atlantic and Pacific oceans were once directly connected by water that extended across the present site of Panama and adjacent areas in Central America. The continents were thus separated during the eocene nnd aligocene epochs—not so very long ago as geolo gists reckon lime. At the end of the oligocène time, however, the surface of the earth in jthe region about the site of Panama was raised by earth movements which closed the mid-Amcrican passage and established continuous land connection between North and South America— j connection which until recently was believed to have remained unbroken until the skill and indomitable perti nacity of United States army engineers cut the bond at Panama. Denizens cf Oceans Change. The separation of the oceans caused profound changes in their inhabitants who had been able to wander unim peded from ocean to ocean, but now found themselves restricted in their range. Many species, marooned in an unfavorable environment, soon suc cumbed in the struggle for existence. Thus in the miocene time (the next epoch 1 the inhabitants ot tin Atlantic j j I j ! i ( I !

Wijyland Vaughan., a geologist of 'the l nited States geological survey, I department of the interior, on crit j ically studying the fossil corrals col ! leeted on Carri/o creek, in Imperial i county, Cal., discovered that thesa corals resemble those of the Atlantia ocean—that they are closely related to pliocene and post-pliocene forms that inhabited the waters about Florida and ( the West Indies. I This fact seems to mean that after the Atlantic had been separated from the Pacific in miocene time the two oceans were again united in late mio cene or pliocene time, the interoceanic ! connection permitting the Atlantic ' forms to reach points at the head of the Gulf of California, while conditions I not vet understood excluded the Pn ficir fauna from that area. I The place at which the oceans were connected is not known, but is sup posed to have been somewhere ne-.r the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. MEETING POSTPONED.
