The Turkey Track range lies largely outside the strip to lie opened to settlement and this is al so opened to settlement and this is also true in a measure of the Diamond A, 73 and Mississippi pastures. The Matador company has taken over a large amount of Indian lands in the diminished reservation outside the open strip, and their beef pasture which lies south of the Moreau river is not affected by the terms of the Gam ble bill. While it is true the open ing of 3,000,000 acres to settle ment in the two reservations will largely diminish the big com pany's ranges, yet they will not be put out of business but on the contrary will continue probably for years to come to be-import ant factors in the production of the country's beef supply.
