'IIS exceptionally dry year which WMontana has had, will perhaps give the new comer in the state the idea that crops can be raised without following the scientific methods of farming. This is an altogether wrong conception of the state and its cli mate and will prove disasterous if the settler is not warned. It is generally conceded that Mon tana is changing in climate and that the annual rainfall is increasing, but no person is in a position to tell what the climatic conditions of Montana will be next year, and it is therefore well to be on the safe side of the fence. By summer-fallowing land this year that is to be cropped next, the new settler is not taking any chances upon the vagaries of the meteorolog ical conditions. It is a lot of trouble to summer fallow and prepare the soil to conserve the moisture, but it is the only safe method to adopt, until we can feel assured that the Montana climate has actually undergone a permanent change. Why Not Here? f HE citizens of Threeforks have W made arrangements for a series of lectures at that place for next fall. This certainly shows that the enter prising citizens of that city are not slow. Foremost among them, the prominent lecturers that have been secured, is Prof. Campbell, of Kansas, the great scientific farming professor. He will speak along lines, which will undoubtedly prove of great benifit to farmers of that community, as well as to the city. Harlowton has thousands of acres of uncultivated lands which are now going into the hands of the actual farmers, who will have to follow the scientific methods of farming and it would therefore be of great value to this city and to the new settler here to have Prof. Campbell lecture at at this place. This matter ought to be brought before the Musselshell Valley Business Men's Association at, the next meeting. If a corporation voluntarily con fesses to having put its hands in other peoples' pockets and abstracted hun dreds of thousands of dollars, its members are usually let off with a minimum fine. But if an ordinary person, on being arrested, voluntarily pleads guilty to taking a few dollars he is sent to prison. Why this dif ference when the offense in both in stances is the same in character? Every man is duty bound to con sider himself a part and parcel of the community in which he lives. He owes to it the fulfillment of the duties of citizenship, a clean, honorable life, and constant intelligent efforts to ad- 1 vance its interests. All kinds of rain as well as more Thaw.
