De Reiqtes, Well Known Denver Cattle Man, Praises State Veterin ary.—Is a Very Valuable Official.— D. W. Raymond Also Commended. Gives Ideas Concerning Advent of Packing House People Into Other Branches of the Cattle Business. That Dr. W. J. Butler, state veter inary surgeon, has handled the foot and mouth epidemic better than oth er experts in the country was the dec laration made last evening by A. E. De Rieqtes of Denver, Colo., president of the American Cattle company, who was in the city yesterday. "Too much credit cannot be given Dr. Butler for the splendid way in which he has handled this disease in Montana," said Mr. De Rieqtes last evening. "The stock growers of this state can consider themselves extreme ly fortunate in having such a man as Dr. Butler at the head of the veterin-. ary department." Big Cattle Man. Mr. De Rieqtes also had many words of praise for D. W. Raymond, secretary of the state board of stock commis sioners. He declared that the record of brands as kept by Mi*. Raymond was one of the best systems he had ever seen. Mr. De Rieqtes, who is one of the largest cattle men of the west, attend ed the meeting of the State Stock Growers' association which was held this week at Miles City. At the meet ing he gave an interesting address with reference to the advent of the pack ing house people into other branches of the cattle business. In speaking of this Mr. De Rieqtes said: No Fight With Packers. "We have no fight with the pack ers and we are immensely interested dently been closed. A policemaa walked around it and reported that a ray of light came through a crack In an upper story. I was requested to ring the bell and ask if a doctor had been called for. I rang, but received no reply. Again and again I pushed the button, and at last the door was opened, and a woman stood in the opening. "Say," said the policeman, "we've been telephoned that there's a child sick in this house, and the doctor must see him." At the mention of the child and the telephone the woman drew a long breath. This was enough for the po liceman. He ordered the house sur rounded and, directing the woman to follow, went upstairs to a bedroom, where he found a telephone. I went with him. Then we commenced a searching of the premises. We soon came upon a man in bed, who was routed out, and both he and the woman were taken along with us. We went from garret to cellar without finding anything. We were looking about in the laundry when It occurred to one of the men to raise the lid of a stationary washtub. It was fastened. The man called upon the old woman for something to pry It open with. She turned pale. Two men grasped the cover and lifted It There, lying in the tub, was a boy about six years old.

I took measures to revive the boy, and he soon came to jiis senses. The man and woman, on being questioned, said they bad never suspected that * boy of six would know bow to use a telephone, though they had forgotten the phone when they put him where It was. The woman heard him, as she supposed, talking to himself, but sooe. suspecting that be might be up to some mischief, rushed into the room and took' «way the receiver. I went upstairs, telephoned the boy's parents, who were in a frightful cond! tion of mind, and told them the news Then I drove Eddie home.

But we do fear that their advent into the stockyards business and the cattle loan company business may be more than they could carry in event of severe panic or financial crisis such as might follow as a result of the war.
