When a Forsyth minstrel referred
to "something good to eat" Thursday
evening, he doubtless had the beef
trust at heart.
Although Mary MacLane has sub

Among things the Helena Herald

revealed, is that the Forsyth Times
has been barking at it.
Mary MacLane says she likes the

unless she desists in calling for him a

Press dispatches say that the beef
trust is not all disturbed by the threat
ened investigation by a congressional
commission. Why should it be? The
beef packers had an experience with
such an investigation at the time of
the "embalmed" beef scandal and
learned to hypnotize it.
V ICKED Butte has brought forth a
wicked book by a would-be wicked
girl if she only had the nerve. Marv
MacLane is publishing her diary un
der the title of "The Story of Mary

"Waiting the Devil's Coming," but
the publishers considered that too
risque, and obtained lier permission
to modify the lurid head lines.
A \\ ashing i on dispatch under date
of May 2, says that Senator Gibson,
of Montana, today presented in the
senate a letter from Commissioner
Hermann of the general land office in
opposition to the policy of leasing pub
lic lands as proposed by the bill now
pending in the senate. Hermann says
that under the terms of the bill prac
tically all the public lands west of the
Mississippi would be subject to leas
ing- and that it is provided that when
under lease they shall nut be disposed
of except under homestead and min
eral land laws, the sale of the public

domain would be greatly curtailed.
He also attacks the provision of the
bill fixing the rental of leased lands
at two cents per acre. He declared
that the general effect of the bill
would be to p'ace the control of the
public lands in the hands of the ex
tensive stockgrowers with the corres
ponding result of making the small
owners pay tribute to their more pros
perous fellows or go out of business.

"The water cure is a simple thing.
The native is tied down flat on the
ground and his mouth is forced open
with sticks or a string, which is tied
behind his head. Then water is poured
down his throat throng'll a bamboo
tube, which is nearly always handy.
The native must drink the stuff and it
is poured down until he can hohl no
more. As much as a gallon can be
forced into a man in that way. Then
the water is pumped out of him by
stamping on his stomach or rolling
him over. When he comes to the native
is always read}' to talk."
This is the testimony of Private
Hines of the 17th Infantry, just re
turned from Manila. He says it was
administered by Lieut, Bolton. The
records of tHe war department show
that Gen. M iles once called Secretar}'
Root's attention to the fact that the
war was being conducted with "un
usual severity." Root with the en
dorsement of the president replied that
it was being conducted with "marked
humanity" and practically told Gen.
Miles to shut up and keep still. But
Gen. Miles' remonstrance had the ef
fect of bringing the matter before the
country in a manner the senate could
not ignore, hence the present unsavory
scandal unearthed. The censorship of
the press which the republican party
stands sponsor for is primarily res
ponsible for the allowing of this evil to
go on unrebuked till now.

"Montana sheep men are fast adopt
ing new tactics," said Jake De Hart,
of Big Timber, in the Chicago Live
Stock World. "They are growing al
falfa and will do much of their feeding
on the ranches instead of around St.
Paid. Rea Bros., of Billings, have
fed a lot of sheep in this manner this
season. By keeping them on alfalfa
ninety days they are in good shape for
finishing on screenings. As soon as
grass gets weak they are put on al
falfa anil kept on that feed ninety
days. This puts them in good mutton
shape so that thirty days on screen
ings fits them for market. This will
spoil, to some extent, the graft St.
Paul men have been enjoying."
The sheep industry in Montana is
flourishing at present. Wool market

prospects are good. Dawson county,
Montana is reputed to have more sheep
than any other county in the Union
and next December and January a
large number will be put on alfalfa.
Feeders realize by experience that ten
days on alfalfa there, supplemented
withthirty days on screenings at St.
Paul puts them in better shape than
100 days on screenings and is a much
more economical progress. Feeders
have been forced to this move by the
tactics of screening speculators in tak
ing out the heavy end of the stuff.
