Last month was a record breaker in
the bounty claim business of the state,
and it is apparent that if the present
rate of killing coyotes and wolves is
kept up for many months the supply
must be exhausted—except in other
states where the bounty is not as at
tractive as it is in Montana.
The repeal of war taxes which went
into effect July 1 will largely reduce
the internal revenue receipts of this
district which includes Montana, Idaho
and Utah. This is the opinion of E. H.
Cal lister, of Salt Lake, the collector.
He estimates that the receipts for the
twelve months beginning July 1 will
show a falling off of about $300,000.
Under the terms of the naval appro

A bank cannot knowingly pay a

other brother, is also a record breaker
being but a few in number behind his
brother. There is still another brother

is expected he will come to Montana.

The Boston Commercial Bulletin
says of the wool trade in the United
States: "The wool trade has been
fairly active. The demand is good and
general. Such large mills as the Pa
cific, VV ankusket and Arlington have
been operating and the small mills tire
also taking on stock. It is expected
that the American Woolen company
will soon be a factor in the market.
Prices are very firm for all grades and
some slight advances have been ob
tained. Predictions are made that un
der unactive competition for the new
clip prices in Montana will run up to
18 cents next week. The opening was
at 16 cents.
The XIT outfit of Texas, which has
been driving vast herds of cattle into
Dawson county, has complied with the
proclamation of Governor Toole in re

as to the cattle's condition. State Vet

trip to Glendive and demanded that
the requisite certificate be produced
at once. The eorcern has complied,
the document having been received by
the veterinarian. It was issued by
Assistant Government Inspector Irvin.

the hugest herds ever brought into the
state in one year. The main owners
of the cattle are Ex-Senator J. V. Far

THE QUEEN'S PRIME MINISTER
All of Alexandra'! Affairs of State Am
E nfrnated to the Duchess
What the premier of Great Britain
is to the king in matters political
the duchess of Bueeleuch is to Queen
Alexandra in social affairs—a sort of
foil or go-between to shield the
throne from disagreeable contact
with the outside world, a dictator
of propriety, an authority on prece
dent. As mistress of the robes she
has had her hands about full for
some time with the care of Queen Al
exandra's wardrobe, not only for the
coronation ceremonies next June,
but also for the series of evening
"drawing rooms" to be given by the
king and queen during the year, says
the Chicago Chronicle.
The duchess of Bueeleuch—it is
pronounced Hue-lew, not Buerluch—•
is one of the greatest ladies in the
kingdom. She was three times mis
tress of the robes under Queen Vic
toria, and was "continued in office"
by the present queen when she came
to the throne. As the holder of this
exalted position the duchess has au
thority over the several distinguished
ladies of the bedchamber, the bed
chamber women, the maids of honor
and also two high-born male officials,
known respectively as the groom and
the clerk of the robes.
The duchess of Bueeleuch not only
has a duke for a husband, but one for
a father and another for a grandfa
ther. Her father was the famous
duke of Abereorn, viceroy of Ireland,
who used to he known as "Old Splen
did," and her mother is the not less
famous dowager duchess of Aber
eorn, whose chief celebrity comes
from the fact that she has a greater
number of titled descendants than
any other titled woman in England.
Six of her daughters married noble- 1
men—one a duke, two marquises and
The duchess herself is called "the
most exclusive hostess in London."
The entertainments given by her at
Montagu house, the duke's mansion
in Whitehall, are renowned for their
brilliance. As mistress of the robes
it is the duchess' privilege to give a
dinner to the members of the govern
ment on the evening before the open
ing of each parliament. At court or
at state ceremonies it is necessary
for her to dress in black. Her grace
of Bueeleuch is notoriously much
haughtier and more dignified than
any of her titled sisters, but that
does not prevent the mistress of the
robes from being addressed by hen
intimate friends as "Tiny," although!
her Christian name is Louise.
