STATE SENATOR SELLS NEARLY 4 SECTIONS Schnitzler Disposes of 2,400 Acres of Land in Froid Farming Region FROID—Senator J. W, Schnitzler president of the Schnitzler corpora tion has just recently sold 2,400 acres of farm lands in this commun ity. All these lands have passed in to the hands of local persons.

I acres TWO MEN NABBED ON STILL CHARGE William Phillips and Harry Burns in Jail at Wolf Ponit—One of Pair in Trouble Previously WOLF POINT—William Phillips and Harry Burns are held in the county jail here without bonds on a charge of unlawful possession and manufacture of intoxicating liquor. When arraigned in district court they pleaded not guilty. Their hear ing has been set for October 2. They were arrested at Culbertson 'on charges of operating a mammoth still. Phillips was one of the three men arrested at Snowden in Septem ber 1925 when the largest still taken in northeastern Montana up to that time was discovered. Like the one seized a year ago the still discovered last week was hidden in the brush along the Missouri, but the equipment and liq^for seized in the Culbertson raid is considerably in excess of that taken in the Snow den raid. Phillips was sentenced in February to 60 days in jail and a fine of $400 on two counts. He paid the fine and served the sentnece. Should he be convicted a second time for a like offense his fine may be anything between $300 and $2,000 and his sentence from six months to two years in the state penitentiary.

It is understood that the pres ent levy is insufficient for the road work that needs construction . At this same meeting Ted Stennes and E, W, Montgomery were awarded the contract for hauling lignite coal for the courthouse for use during the winter.

Finds Protein Wheat Varies With Rainfall * Highest Content Discovered in Drier Sections, Says County Agent A. W. Warden. CULBERTSON, Sept. 23.—The pre liminary protein survey conducted in Roosevelt county by the Montana ex tension service indicates that Roose velt county spring wheat will aver age about 14.74 percent says A. W. Warden, county agent. This is the average of samples taken from fields in all parts of the county, an effort being made to secure representative samples in average fields. The purpose of this preliminary survey is to show the general run of protein in wheat throughout the county. A considerable variation has been found due to a number of caus es; however, it seems where there has been an abundant rainfall the protein content runs lower than the dryer sections. A spread of five or six percent is found between high and low samples. With a range in protein content in wheat from the same county, it is to the farmer's best interest to know the exact protein content of his wheat before marketing. The pre mium range on No. 1 dark northern wheat based protein was Saturday, September 19, as follows; 12*per cent—2 cents to 6 cents over September price; 13 per cent—5 cents to 10 cents over September price; 14 per cent—7 cents to cents over September price. Due to the high quality of the large crop in the winter wheat belt, premiums for protein have this year been far below those of last season. It is estimated that Montana spring wheat will average approximately 14 per cent based on the 500 samples of grain received from 30 wheat growing counties. In general, the samples from the northern, eastern and central counties of the state have the highest average protein content, while those from the west-1 em and southern counties have the lowest. 1 1 N.
