ATTACK ITALIANS Body of Turks and Arabs Attack Ital ian Column Near Tripoli. (Record Special) Tripoli, Jan. 19.—A terrific attack was made yesterday by a large body of Tur.ks and Arabs on an Italian col umn which was on the march about 10 miles from the town of Tripoli. The Italian troops, which consisted to de tachments of all arms, left Tripoli, early in the morning on the way to Ghirgarish, a small oasis, situated about 10 or 11 miles along the coast to the west of the town and surrounded by a number of mud houses which hitherto had given shelter to Arab ir regulars. Suddenly ar. the toldiers were marching along the road which runs parallel to ihe Coast they were attacked by a large force of Turks and Arabs. The Italians immediately took up a position and threw ni» field entrechments. The enemy continued its attacks throughout the day but fin ally retired. Details of the losses have not been reported. OIL IS DISCOVERED Standard Oil Company Is Successful in Prospecting for Oil in Washington. (Record Special) Olympia, Wash., Jan. 19.—Immense deposits of high quality oil have been discovered in the Sweetwater and Queets river districts on the west slope of the Olympics by agents of the Standard Oil Company who for years have been conducting an exten sive series of borings and prospect ing work. That company has quiet ly purchased up tit le to a large area of lands containing the oil and this discovery is said to be largely respon sible for the recent activity of the Company is preparing for immense storage plants at a large number of points on the sound at Grays Harbor. A large number of farmers and ranchers are expected in next Wed nesday to attend the farmers' insti tute to be held here on that day, and preparations are being made for the proper reception of Roundup's guests j on that occasion. The institutes have 4 proved to be of great educational 4 value to farmers, and especially do new comers in the state who are yet familiar with conditions sufficiently to know the best methods to be fol lowed to farm successful,., find them of much benefit. This is to be the third institute held in Roundup and it is hoped that it will be a record breaker in attendance. The Roundup Commercial Club is making arrangements for the serv ing of a lunch to all farmers who at tend the ins'itute. This lunch will lie served free of cost. A seed flax contest will :>e :.cld at the institute in which all farmers who are raising flax are urged to bring in ja peck of seed and enter it in the con- 'est.

Settlement along the Mil ! waukee and Tilget Sound railway has been very rapid, and particularly good crops have been grown in many ■ sections during the past season. Re sides the usual grain and .dry farm crops, a very keen inters! is being manifested in flax growing on account of the high prices obtained for flax seed. The farmers' institute will devote special attention to the sub ject of flax in respect to the selection of soil, preparation of the ground, de tails of sowing and harvesting, and particularly the prevention of the dis eases, flax wilt and flax canker, which have so seriously reduced the yield: of flax in other localities, with view to preventing their gaining a foothold in Montana flax areas. The speakers will include T. S. Cooley, superintendent of farmers' it ; titute.s. Director F B. Linfield of the Montana Experiment Station, M. L. Wilson upon his return from a con ference with the American Flax Buy ers' Association in Chicago, and others of note. We expect to have some of the growers of the crops receiving the championship cup at the Madison Square Land Show and discussion of some of the prize crops that have made Montana famous the past sea son. "The attendance at farmers' insti tutes in other parts of the state has been exceptionally good the present season and a good time is expected at Roundup on January 24.'

Thru the courtesy of Olaf Jensvold, superintendent of the state experimen tal sub-station north of Roundup, The Record is enabled to give below a com prehensive statement of the results attained during the year toll. A de tailed statement »if this kind is of much interest and vast importance to the many people in Musselshell county who are actively engaged in the prusuit of agriculture, as well as many non-resident people who are in terested in land in tliis section. As the moisture problem is of prime importance in the matter of growing crops, the rainfall for the past year is given first consideration. The record of precipitation» for the year, which was accurately kept, reads as follows: Bill Inches January ................. .........14 Februarv ............... .........Hi August, tl showers ....... . .2.27 September, 5 '-■bowers . . . . .......1 29 October. 5 showe's ............. > November, showers........... 1 December.................. 1 Total...... . . . 12.9 1 1 will I.- oh-'i-ncd from 1 In) abov 1 1 1 1 1 • that dining the month 1 if Jm "Inn i a ill "a l . fdtMl !»: !■ ■(,: in ihat it * . 11 « 111 : Tie c R.'hl s il )\V < I S i! • •in 'i' ll liKii s tH 11 V I'or DM lilt uiii to I.o Loti, . rvt ( 1 . to. s alioill (Hie fuiu th oi ; 1 ...

It is taking eliaticcs to seed any differently prepared grounds to spring or fall grain. The alfalfa lias proved to be a suc cess on bench land.-. The most, jiroii table is to drill it in rows 20 inches apart and cultivate, the plants to be about s inches apart ill the rows. It. does not r< quire much seed to the acre, and undoubtedly it gives the biggest yields both of hay and seed. As we are looking at the free range as something of the past, we are also looking ahead to see what is going to replace it. Bronte grass, in my opin ion, will do it and many times over as far as quantity is concerned. It may not he quite as rich a feed as the native grasses, however. In the spring of 1910 one plot was seeded to this grass Bhd it took hold during that dry summer. It is a grass that delighÿ ti be tormented.

The Swedish Seh-i ' Oats is not as big a yiclder as the Sixty-day, but it weighs tndhfe. The Sixty-day Oats is a surer crop on bench land, bigger yiclder, weigh ing about 22 pounds to the bushel mea sure. it makes good feed, the hull is very light, has a medium size straw and is ready to harvest about July 29, enabling one to plow early. The fall plowing is left in the rough to prevent soil blowing and to hold more snow. Judging from the results, it seems extravagant to leave the summer fal low bare, especially where spring grain is wanted. A crop of corn, pota toes and the different roots can be cultivated the bare fallow. By grow ing different kinds of intertill«! crops, the farmer gets good Btock feed, also makes possible a better series of crop rotatiou that otherwise would be omit ted, and also prevents qpntinous small grain cropping.
