A certain grocery stor(, ill ;I Cr-"

a man who for many years was an
active member of labor unionjs nilt
is an enthusiastic Bulletin sulpllortcr.
One day, recently, a drummer
dropped in and opening up his sam
ple cases began to make himself
agreeable. All went well and he was
getting the merchant interested
when he came to Crestent baking
powder. Then, as the drummer elab
orated on their advertising scheme,
the interest of the merchant in
creased. And thereby hangs a tale.
Crescent baking powder is manu
factured by a Seattle firm. Accord
ing to this drummer, who is interest
ed in the firm, they are about to em
bark on an intensive scheme of ad
vertising. A certain amount of money
is to be appropriated to each state
to be equally divided among daily
papers circulating in certain localities
or read by certain classes of people.

TWO TRANSPORTS ARRIVE
TODAY WITH YANKEES
New York, March 7.--The trans
port Mlexican arrived today with
2.504 officers and men, principally
members of aero squadrons. The El
Occident also arrived with 86 cas
uals, a medical officer and three en
listed miedical men,
denied application for bail, although
it is stated in the Montana codes
t9411) 1 After conviction of of
fense not punishable with death, a
defendant who has appealed may he
admitted to bail.
t1) As a matter of right, when
appeal is from a judgment imposing
a line only.
The clear intent of the defense was
to make the appeal. and it is remark
able that the trial judge ova ýoolked
this section of the code. The su
preme court judge, Charles8. Coop-.
er, however, saved Dunn from the In
dignity of the state penitentiary. Al
though stricken with flu, he issueo
the necessary order restraining the
sheriff from executing the order of
the lower court, and also fixed the
bhail, pending the appeal.
\V. F'. Dunn has filed for mayor of
Butte in which city, the moment the
decision of the district court became
known. $100,000 were pledged as
hail to cover his case. Reactionaries
in the legislature proceeding on the
false assumption that persecution of
courageous souls is still popular, are
seeking his expulsion from the honse
as a member. We invite them to do
it. It will be a fitting finale to an
o,rge of reaction.
