Turner, Sr., who owns a large pack of tine wolf dogs, at Lu cille, on the Marias, and sixty miles from Benton, says the Press, writes that wolves are multiplying rapidly in that section, as high as sixty has been seen in one band, near Ponde ra, and he estimates the loss of range cattle at £100,000 at least this winter. Mr. McNutt, a neighbor of Mr. Turner, has lost several head of cat tle which were kept at his ranch, and many other losses are reported. A plan of extermination advocated by Mr. Turner is to take the bounty matter from the state and have the counties provide for the payment of a §5 bounty on wolves. Then Mr. Turner believes, each rancher will get dogs and the number of wolves will he rapidly reduced. He holds to the position that strychnine is of little use as the wolves, when so numerous as on the range, will eat nothing but fresh meat, while only cayotes take the baits. One thing is certain; something must be done to rid the ranges of wolves, and about the only feasible plan seems to be to provide for a sufficient bounty, anil levy a tax for its payment, instead of giving a small bounty with no immediate prospect of its payment. If the bounty is sufficiently large. the problem will be solved by tiie use of dogs, poison or some other method. The stock interests of the state are too great to be allowed to pass un encouraged, and should substantial aid be rendered by the state, or a disposition be manifested to assist in destroying range pests, all stock men, large and small, will gladly do fully or more than their share to ward accomplishing that object. Are you aware of the fact that "THE BOSTON" will cash your check and sell you any thing you need in Clothing or Shoes? Pointing to Freo Coinage. Represenative Abbott of Texas introduced a bill for the coinage of the silver in the Treasury on a new plan. The Secretary is to coin into standard silver dollars, or minor coins, not less than $2,000,000 ounc es per month of the silver purchased under the Sherman act. The coin certificates issued under that act are to be redeemed in gold or silver, in the order in which the metal is held in the largest quantity in the Treas ury, and to issue coin notes to the amount of the seniorage of the Sher man act. The plan is apparently devised to place gold and silver on an equal footing. The best home-made bread (a ~> cents a loaf at the Vienna Bakery. Joseph Heg euer, Prop. Do You Suvio Graphite? Below will be found a communi cation from L. S. Woodbury, presi dent of the Great Falls Iron Works. This letter is timely and the advice given we cordially indorse. The time has now arrived when other mines besides those of gold and sil ver are demanded in Montana. Graphite is generally of two kind foliated and massive. The first has been found in McKay gulch near Barker. The last has been found between Carpenter and Hoover creeks, but not in any quan tity and impure. It will pay pros pectors, however, to find this sub stance in large bodies, and it ought to be fine grained and amorphous. A new tie Irl of discovery is now open to prospectors: Great Falls, Feb. 7.— To the edi tor Great Falls Tribune: The writ er has had many years experience with graphite and fully appreciates its great value in all industrial and mining enterprises, entirely exclu sive of lead pencils and the like. 1 am quite familiar with this sub ject and beg you and all your ex changes to stimulate prospectors by every practical means to watch for this mineral at every turn of the sod and blow of the pick. There is only one mine in the Ui)ited gtateg xvhoI . the »roper '2,500 quality is mined, and it miles from Great Falls. 1 would say prospectors, look out sharp for graphite, sometimes called "plumbago, or black lead." It is as good as gold. Respectfully. L. S. Woouiii nv. The Parents of All Mankind. Bill Nye in speaking of Hampton Court, Frig., has this to say of one of the picture gallery: "A picture, en larged from a kodak, 1 judge, rep resents Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. The figure on the right of the group is Fve, as 1 learned from an attendant. Adam is on the left— one cannot tell by the clothes which is which. One has just peeled a 20 ounce pippen and has thrown the peeling over her shoulder to see what letter it would makes. Onecaa not but be impressed by this picture of those two single handed parents of the human race. With no experience at all, green and countrified as all get out, raw and unletterd, yet called suddenly forward and asked to be come the parents of all mankind, white, black, red and yellow! Think of it! Who could not shudder at the very idea? It is a mighty solemn thing to be a parent even where one's child is of the same color as one's self; but, ah, stop and think over for a moment what it must be to havei the doctor bring with him a Mongol ian baby, or a little red brother, or a fifteenth amendment.
