Urge to Keep
Quarantine On
In order that Montana may be
kept free from the foot and
mouth disease, which has almost
ruined the cattle markets and re
duced the price materially from
what it was a year ago, it is prob
a hie th a Mhe^ Mon tan a^S toc k •
gsowers' association at its 'annual
meeting will pass a resolution
urging that the strict quarantine
which has prevented the ship
ment ol cattle into the state be
retained until the malady is en
tirely wiped out all over the
country, says the Helena Inde
I )ue to the prompt work of Dr.
W. -I. Butler, state veterinary
surgeon, and federal authorities,
supplemented by the placing of
m embargo on stock shipments
into the state by Governor Stew
irt, Montana is freer from the
loot and mouth disease than any
other cattle producing state.
In fact, it is reported that so
far as is known, there are no
sa,ses of the disease in Montana
and cattlemen, anxious to see the
I .Markets restored to normal, are
! insisting I hat the quarantine be
' retained.
According to cattlemen, there
I :s a concerted effort all over the
; ■>!ate to prevent a spread of the
I liseuse, with the result that there
j nave been fewer cattle shipped
m. Hut with the efforts that are
icing made by föderal authori
ties to stamp out the malady, it
is anticipated that the business
vvill resume normal before fall,
ind that the market will pick up

County Bonds Floated
At a special meeting of the
board of county commissioners
held at Baker April 6th it was
decided to sell bonds in the sum
of $115,000.00 for the purpose of
taking up all outstanding war
rants and to cover the $44,48(5.20
and interest which Fallon county
owes Custer county. The legal
outstanding warrants amount to
$(57,581. (is.
The. following is a copy of the
resolution that was adopted:
"A Resolution of the Board of
County Commissioners of Fallon
County, Montana, made and en
tered of record in the minutes of
their proceedings determining
the following: The amount due
and owing to Custer county and
that the same is lawfully due and
unpaid: the amount of the out
standing legal warrant indebted
ness ol the* county and that the
same was lawfully incurred for
ordinary and necessary expenses
of the county authorized -by the
Constitution and general laws of
the state and constitutes the val
id and le, aal obligations of the
county; the absence of funds in
in the treasury of the county
available for the payment of the
said Custer county's or the said
warrant indebtedness, <>r any
part thereof; and that the inter
ests of said county require that
the fnnding bonds of and by the
said county in the aggregate prin.
cipal suivi o| hi to,000 be issued
in exchange for and in order to
redeem and pay a like amount of
said indebtedness; and providing
for the issuance, execution and
exchange of such bonds for said
indebtedness, outstanding', due
and unpaid; prescribing the
forms of said bonds and the in
terest coupon; lo he annexed
thereto; and providing for the
levy i I a diieta annual ad valor
em tax on all the taxable proper
ly of said eoumy, in addition to
J all other taxes, sufficient to pay
j lhe iihetesl accruing on said
bonds promptly when and as the
same becomes due and also lo
ci institute and maintain a sinking
fund sufficient to pay the princi
pal thereof at t lie I iine of their
maturity; fixing the other details
of the issue ami declaring' an
enicrgciic;. whereby Ibis resolu
t on shall be in full force and ef
fect from and after its passage."
The bonding firm of Keiler
Bros, of Denver will handle the
issue, which is comprised of !lf>
bonds in the sum of $1.000 each.
The bonds are made payable
March 1, 10'. -, and are redeema
ble on any interest paying date
after 1030, and bear interest at
the rate of six per cent annum.
For a Larger Yield
oi Heiter Oats
; We assume that you have clean
led and graded your seed grain,
1 now will you continue your good
j resolutions by treating your seed
for smut? With 1he rush of
I spring work here, we are liable
! to become careless and, in our
hurry lo gel in that large acre
I age of wheat, forget some of the
better practices of crop insurance
we had in uimd three months
j agm
j Every spring finds farmers
rushing things and all good res
lolulions for more careful farm
j practice discarded; not with all
to he sure, but wilh a large per
centage. Slipshod methods cos!
(lie American farmer millions of
dolku s every year. It is esti
mated that smut in the oat crop
,ol Kansas alone cost the Kansas
farmer from $300,000 to $8001000
every year. The percentage of
smut in oats may run from 10 to
20 per cent, and one-tenth or
one-fifth of your total oat yield
deducted means considerable loss
to you.
You can cut down this percent
age to a very large extent and
probably eliminate it entirely by
treating your oal seed with a 40
per cent solution of formalin; and
insist that you get a standard so
lution from your druggist. One
pint to 40 gallons of water will
treat from 40 to 50 bushels of
grain. Your largest expense item
will be labor, but usually one
man can plan that so he is turn
ing some idle period into very
j profitable labor by treating his
j grain.
! The methods of treatment
j are simple, either the sprinkling
I or the dipping. Both are very
effective, but the former is proh
alby more expensive as more so
lution is used. If the grain is
seeded soon after treating it will
be necessary to use more seed
per acre, as it usually swells a
good deal. However, it can read
ily be estimated how much more
is needed by seeding a strip wilh
a known amount of seed.
If you want to do some demon
st rating for your own satisfaction
for your skeptical neighbor, just
seed a strip the width of seeder
with untreated seed through the
center of your field sown with
treated seed. Your county agent
will assist you in holding a dem
onstration after the oats have
headed and show just what sav
j ing has been made.
: II you can increase your yield
f.» or lo per cent and have a bet
, tor quality of oafs, you can read
fly figure how much it will add
j to your total income this fab.
1 hi u k it over before you plunge
too heavily without a little in
surance. -I. C. Taylor, Custer
( 'ounty Agriculturist.
.1 a i S b rea k e rs Caught
Last Friday Hnder-Sherift Ev
