I Record State Wheat
Storage Is Reported
I Montana had a total of 71,449,000
bushels of wheat in storage Oct. 1.
j the largest amount in state history,
I the United States agricultural market
tog service reports.
I Of this total, the agency said, 16,
229,000 bushels were stored in elevators
[ and small flour mills, 4,627,000 in mer
I chant flour mills, and 50,593.000 bush
| els on farms.
This large amount of wheat on hand,
the marketing service said, was ac
counted for by the fact Montana's
1941 crop of 74,402,000 bushels was the
third largest in state history', and the
fact there was a large carryover from
the 1940 crop
„ _ _ . ,
During August, 17 state commerçai
flour raids with a daily milling ca
pacity of 9,610 barrels of flour, ground
465,849 bushels of grain and produced
97,940 barrels. For the year from July
1, 1940 to July 1, 1941, the mills

The battle of David and Goliath
was re-enacted on the flats west of
what now' is the city of Lewis town
when the Crows attempted to prevent
j the invasion of a band of Blackfeet
; Indians.
Reeds fort was the name of the
! station at the time of this conflict
between the red men and it was to
h of R** d , for whom it
was * amed , and a B1U ßowl«,
Bowles was a squaw man and was
marr i ec j a daughter of a Crow chief.
Lo ng Horse, whose band made Its
headquarters in the vicinity of the
fort
Perhaps Bowles was not married to
this squaw In the conventional man
ner, as there was no one in that coun
try legally capable of marrying them
at that time. The usual way in those
days was for a man to buy a girl
from her father for a few bottles of
whisky or some trade goods, stealing
her, winning her in a horse race or to
a poker game.
Major Reed never was a squaw man.
It was not considered good etiquette in
those days to ask a man where he
came from, or where he was going,
It simply wasn't done, and curiosity
regarding such things was frowned
upon and discouraged and brought one
decided unpopularity. The major was
a well-educated, gentlemanly man, who
l... himself well even when in his
°° re nunseu wel1 ' even wnen m 1115
CUPS.
BLACKFEET CHIEF SLEW HIS BIG
ADVERSARY ; SON-IN-LAW OF
DEAD MAN REAL AV1NNER
Long Horse Rallies Band
One day an Indian runner came to
the fort and reported that a band of
Blackfeet was coming that way from
the north. As the Crows and Black
feet were mortal enemies. Long Horse
rallied his band, got all the white men
he could to Join him, made war medi
cine and went forth to meet the Black
feet and give battle.
Now Long Horse was a tremendously
big Indian, about 6 feet 8 or 10 inches
tall, well proportioned and about the
biggest, finest looking specimen of an
Indian to the west. He rode a big,
fine horse that weighed about 1,200
pounds—no cayuse or Indian pony
could carry him.
The Crows and Blackfeet met on
a creek east of Reed's fort, called Plat
Willow, and the Blackfeet were told
that this was Crow country and they
must turn back, at which they laughed.
There was, evidently, some pretty
smart white men with the- Crows and
it was finally arranged between the
two bands of Indians that the two
chiefs. Long Horse and Weasel Calf,
should fight between the two bands
and whichever was victorious the
other band should retire. The Crows
and the smart white men had kept
the big Long Horse and his fine saddle
animal to the background. So each
chief was armed with a lance, a knife,
a tomahawk and a shield of dried
buffalo hide and rode forth to fight
and the Crows naturally expected that
their man with his size and weight
and strength and his big horse, would
ride right over the smaller Weasel Calf 1
and his cayuse.
David Wins Again
It was a kind of a David and Goliath
performance, as it turned out. They
both charged and both lances were
caught on the buffalo hide shields and
both chiefs were unhorsed and fell to
the ground, but the Weasel's lance
had pierced Long Horse's shield and
gone through his body and stuck six
inches out of his back and killed him,
while the Weasel had suffered no in
from the fall from his
horse. He Jumped up and ran to Long
Horse with his knife in his hand to
finish him, and saw that he was
dead. He did not stop to scalp him
but cut off one of his long braids of
hair and held it up and gave the war
whoop, then ran back to his people.
Some of the young bucks among the
Crows wanted to fight and avenge the
death of Long Horse but it was pointed
out to them that their medicine was
probably bad that day and that they
had btetter go home as agreed and
make some good medicine and try it
again another day. So they picked up
Long Horse, laid him across the saddle
and tied him on and started back with
the body.
When they got back and the squaws
had wailed over Long Horse for a
couple of days and the medicine man
had made the medicine to help him on
his way to whatever place a dead In
dian goes to, they finally built a plat
form up to a big cottonwood tree,
wrapped Long Horse up in some buf
falo robes and burled him up to the
tree.
Long Horse, the father-in-law of
BUI Bowles, remained buried up in
the tree for a long time, untU his
bones were well bleached and sun and
rain and snow and the elements had
done their work.
One day along came a scientist from
the University of Dublin, Ireland,
named Dr. Jamison, whose brother
conducted the famous Transvaal raid
which brought on the Boer war.
The doctor was a great student of
ethnology. He was browsing around
and one day he saw the platform up
in the tree and climbed up to see
what it was and found the bones of
Long Horse in almost perfect condi
tion except for a broken rib where
the Weasel's spear had nicked him.
He was struck with the tremendous
size of the skeleton and Its perfect
proportions and said it was the most
perfect specimen he had ever seen, so
he got it down from the tree and car
ried it to his camp near the fort and
bragged about it and what a great and
perfect find he had made.
Settles for $300 and Horae
When Bill Bowles saw the skeleton
and the size he at once suspected that
it was that of his father-in-law, Long
Horse. So he forked his cayuse and
rode out to see and found that Long
Horse was indeed gone from his usual
place up to the tree, so he rode back
to camp and just raised hob about the
doctor stealing his father-in-law's
bones and went on something scan
dalous about it.
The doctor must have been on to
Bill for after he had quieted down a
little he tried to settle with him on a
mon et ary basis for the skeleton—and
nothing would help Bill's finer feel
togs except $500.
Dr. Jamison was a Scot and pretty
canny himself, and after considerable
dickering they compromised on $3001
S SSS S. "
pack out his father-in-law's bones and
™mted her spechnens the doct0r had
This is the most unique transaction
to salesmanship that is on record. All
kinds of salesmen brag about their
sales but never one yet has sold his
father-in-law's bones and a $7 cayuse
for $300. Of course, if a man could
brag that he had sold his mother-in-» 1
law Vs bones for $300, he would have
It all over Bill, but no one heard of
anything like that and nobody else j
ever did.
The doctor told the story about buy
ing the bones and laughed about it,
and a man named Clark, who was
with the Crows on Plat Willow when
Long Horse was killed, told about the
battle.
Some years afterward Bill was sent
to the penitentiary at Deer Lodge for
stealing cattle. When he got out he
was asked about Long Horse and he
claimed he did pretty well off of
Jamison. He said, "Where do you sup
pose old Long Horse is now? He's in
Dublin. Did you ever hear tell of a
Crow Indian being in Dublin, Ireland?"
;
9-MONTHS AUTO
TOLL IS 27,860
YEAR'S TOTAL EXPECTED TO HIT
40.500, HIGHEST MARK EVER
TO BE RECORDED
The National Safety council states
that 27,860 men, women and children
lost their lives as a result of motor
vehicle accidents in the United States
during the first three quarters of 1941.
The toll for the nine months was
17 percent greater than during a sim
ilar period last year.
During September 3,770 persons were
Injured fatally on streets and high
ways. It was the 14th consecutive
month to show an increase over the
corresponding month of the previous
year but the size of the increase—14
percent—was the smallest since last
January.
The urban safety leaders, with their
annual death rate per 100,000 popula
tion as computed by the council, were
ranked this way at the end of the
first nine months of 1941:
Group 1 (more than 500,000 popula
tion)—Boston 8.6; Milwaukee 8.9; New
York 9.9.
Group 2 (250,000-500,000)—Memphis
4.1; Providence 5.3; Kansas city 7.7.
Group 3 (100,000-250,000) — Omaha
4.8; Fall River, Mass., 6.9; Yonkers,
N. Y„ 7.5.
Group 4 (50.000-100,000)—Union City,
N. J., 0; Cleveland Heights, O., 0;
Wilkes-Barre, Pa., 1.5.
Among smaller cities with perfect
records through the first three quar
ters were Chelsea, Mass.; Arlington,
Mass.; Oshkosh, Wls.; Butler, Pa.; Port
Dodge. la., and Leominster, Mass,
Forty thousand five hundred deaths
1,750,000 nonfatal injuries
J
$2,000,000,000 to economic loss . . .
That, according to authoritative
sources, will be the traffic accident
toll during the year. It will be the
heaviest cost in life, limb and prop
erty to the history of highway trans
portation. Highest previous year was
1937 when death came to 39,643 per
sons and injury to more than 1,500,000
as the result of motor vehicle traffic
accidents.
