Reminiscences ot
Western Travels.
A Week hi Montana.
The train that afternoon over the Ore
gon Short Line was very crowded, and
as we made ourselves comfortable in our
section, and listened to the complaints
of our fellow-passengers, many of whom
had been compelled to take upper berths,
we were thankful for the letter of in
troduction to the Salt Lake City agent,
that had made it easy for us to secure
accommodations. The most impr-ssive
oit of Bcenery was observed about dusk,
as we passed through the Bear River
Canyon, where the river tumbling through
its rocky gorge, and the extensive irri
gation project there under construction,
made an interesting subject for a pho
That evening a party of young fellows
on a government surveying party board
ed the train, and kept things lively for
awhile. If berths had been scarce at
beginning they were a decidedly minus
quantity by this time, and those of the
boys who could not get a chance to sleep
two by two in the few uppers there were
left sat up in the smoking room until
morning. It was well after midnight
■when peace and quiet [finally descended
Upon the sleeper, and it seemed only a
few moments before our travelling
alarm clock reminded us that we must
change at Butte at a quarter of seven, if
the train was on schedule time. It was
on time, or very nearly so, and the local
for Bozeman was held long enough to
permit our scrambling aboard with only
a hurried glance at that portion of Butte
visible from the station. Even that
passing glimpse gave us a mental pic
ture of a dingy, unattractive city,where
the paraphernalia of mines and mining
held the most prominent place in the
landscape. We were told later that it
would be a most interesting town to
visit, since it is unique irom many stand
points. In buying a houselot in Butte
one buys the surface of the ground only,
and down below the shallow cellars, the
ceaseless mining for copper and iron
goes on.
The beauty and fertility of the Galla
tin Valley was a most welcome change
after the desert vistas to which we had
become accustomed, and a former Boze
man resident, and of course a most en
thusiastic “booster,” added greatly to
the pleasure of our journey by his de
scriptions and stories of the country.
The ride to Bozeman was not a long one
and shortly after ten o’clock we were
alighting from our taxi and receiving the
heartiest of welcomes from Professor
and Mrs. Schoppe, to say nothing of Bil
lie, who was as enthusiastic as his eld
ers. We had made better connections
than had been thought possible, and had
arrived almost as soon as the telegram
announcing the hour of our arrival.
Tongues were soon flying fast, especial
ly those of the feminine portion of the
party, if one may believe the statements
made by Will in a letter written home
that evening.
After a dinner to which the hungry
travellers did full justice,the whole fam
ily started for a walk to see a bit of
Bozeman, and ineidently to search for
wild flowers. These wo found in groat
profusion, and nearly all the different
varieties were strange to Eastern eyes,
and later necessitated a prolonged study
of a convenient book about wild flowers.
From a bluff we gained some splendid
views of the Gallatin Valley with its en
circling ring of stately snow-covered
mountains which seem to shut out the
rest of the world. This valley is aptly
called the "Egypt of America,” but the
remarkable fertility of its soil is in some
degree offset by its early frosts and con
sequent shortness of its seasons.
Like all the rest of the Western cities
we had visited Bozeman had had an
“unusually” rainy season, and during
our stay the weather exhibited all the
'caprices characteristic of a New Eng
land April. Despite the radical differ
ence of Eastern and Western architec
ture, the atmosphere and general ap
pearance of Bozeman seems more home
like than that of any town we had hith
erto seen. Had it not been for the cot
tonwood treeB, which our imagination
- could easily convert to the New England
maples they somewhat resembled in size
onH outline. we rmcht have nersuaded
ourselves that we were no farther from
Home than the New Hampshire hills.
Fortunately for our good opinion oi the
cottonwuods, we did not see them at the
stage when their disagreeable propen
sity for indiscriminate distribution of
white “cottony” fuzz makes them the
bane of the careful housewife.
A trolley ride up the valley to Saytes
ville, over an enterprising road that op
erated but two round trips daily, was a
most pleasant experience, and helped us
to gain an excellent idea of the charac
ter of the surrounding country and the
nearby ranches.
The main attraction for one day of our
visit was a circus, with all its attendant
delights for small boys (and big ones
also) and among other things we discov
ered that a much belated street parade
is a circuB characteristic by no means
confined to the East. The circus was
remarkable as regards price only. Bil
lie’s extraordinary graft and surprising
capacity for ice cream coneB, and the
staying qualities of hie long-suffering
balloon,quite overshadow the show itself
in our memories of the day.
On the way home from the circus a
visit was made to the “grain room” of
the local club,;where grain exhibits dem
onstrated the fertility of the Gallatin
region,and pictures cleverly done'.in seeds
and grasses reminded us of the Mon
tana, Oregon and California exhibits at
the Exposition. Here at the clubroom,
much to our delight, we met one of Boze
man’s pioneers, Chaffee by name, whose
■stories of the early days of Bozeman, and
his own thrilling adventures with the In
diars. were as exciting as any we bad
ever read in the wildest tales of the
“wild and woolly” West. We spent a
most enjoyable hour listening to his
yarns and examining the Indian and pio
neer relics carefully preserved in a show
case near by.
We anxiously watched the skies next
morning, and finally decided, despite
their somewhat threatening appearance,
to carry out our cherished plans for a
“real Western” picnic. A capacious
surrey, with two lively “cayuses” as
motive power, was diiven up to the door,
and speedily loaded with cooking uten
sils, picnic paraphernalia, and wraps,
until there was scarcely room for its
prospective occupants. We managed to
squeeze ourselves, Billie and all, in some
where, however, and started off toward
the mountains, around the “Little Horn”
and through the Bridger canyon. As we
drove along we tried to trace over the
hills the probable course of the pioneers
Lewis and Clark, who were the first
' white men to pass through the Gallatin
ir_n__. rnt- __n_ ._
'“"O' " "" ...... V. « “J
! were especially beautiful, the wild ger
j aniums in particular growing in great
! profusion, and making splashes of pur
plish red against the green background
of the hillsides. We kept a sharp look
out for the wild forget-me-nots that were
! reputed to grow thereabouts, and finally
our search was rewarded as the road des
j cended into a little canyon, and the slopes
1 on either side were thickly dotted with
the little blue flowers. The feminine
j members of the party hastily called a
! halt, and alighted to revel in the novelty
I of gathering forget-me-nots by the arm
fuls. Billie joined in the search with
enthusiasm and delighted in bringing up
j choice specimens for maternal approval.
Before long the threatening aspect of
i the clouds, and the voracious appetites
given by the bracing mountain air, com
bined to make us think very favorably of
a stop for dinner, so, finding a sheltered
spot, with a brook running conveniently
near, we hastened to make camp. While
the horses were being unharnessed, we
“tenderfeet” labored diligently to find
sufficient dry wood for a fire,— not suc
ceeding very well at that, as our host i
speedily demonstrated on his return to
the scene. Under his more experienced i
management the fire burned briskly, and
soon the sizzling bacon and frying pota
toes, with the coffee bubbling merrily,
sent up an aroma that gave added zest
to appetites already keen. The “proof”
of this pudding was surely in the “eat
ing,” and we pronounced our Western
picnic a huge success. A passing shower
caused us to “break camp” in a hurry,
and seek the shelter afforded by the
surrey, but the rain, though heavy while
it lasted, was soon over, and before long
the bright sun gave new beauty to the
dripping landscape.
As we drove along, saucy magpies,
looking for all the world like crows in
evening dress, screamed at us from near
by trees and fences, and innumerable
gophers scuttled through the fields or
squatted on their haunches to watch U3
go by, only flirting their tails derisively
and whisking away, when made the
target for occasional shots from Will
Schoppe’s “twenty-two.” In defence
of Will’s marksmanBhip I will have to
state that they were exceedingly active
Our objective point, the Bridget can
yon, though not of great length, was a
very beautiful bit of scenery, where an
enterprising little river tumbled noisily
between lofty cliffs. The cayuses were
halted long enough to allow the kodak
fiend to take a picture, and as he
scrambled up over exceedingly precari
ous footing to a suitable vantage point,
the rest of us held our breath lest he
should enact the part of Jack in the old
nursery rhyme, and “fall down and break
his crown.”
Leaving the canyon we made a brief
visit to a State fish hatchery, where gray
ling in different Btages of development
were observed with interest. The drive
back to Bozeman, over a different route,
was no less interesting than the drive
out had been, and late in the afternoon
hough it was when we arrived, we still
had time for a drive through the campus
of the Montana Agricultural college, and
a brief visit to some of the buildings.
Will made a more extensive visit to them
next day, while I attended a most inter
esting meeting of the local D. A. K.,
who gave a cordial welcome to a visitor
from a Maine chapter.
All too soon the day came to leave Boze
man, which bad already begun to seem
like home to us, and we were compelled
to take our leave of the Schoppes, with
the earnest hope of seeing them in the
East next summer. Our reservations
for the Yellowstone were already made
with the Wylie Company, so on the
eleventh of June we took the afternoon
train to Livingston, leaving Bozeman in
the midst of a downpour that did not
augur well for a Park trip.
Bozeman and Livingston are rival
towns, and at each place disparaging re
marks are made of the other. Among j
others, we had heard that a high board
fence stood on the outskirts of Living
ston, and that when anyone wanted a
new bat, all that was necessary was to
go down to the fence and take his choice.
The velocity of the wind on the day we
reached Livingston left little doubt in
our minds as to tbe truth of that state
ment, and had we needed new head gear
just then we should certainly have visit
ed that fence! To make a bad matter
worse, the rain had turned to sleet and
snow, and it required a distinct effort of
the imagination to realize that it was
nearly the middle of June. Our only
consolation was found in a most attrac
tive souvenir shop, where that evening
we spent a great deal of our time, and,
incidentally, our money,—finally retiring
to our rooms at the hotel to hope for
good weather on the morrow for our
long anticipated trip to the Yellowstone.
This is tho time of the year that school
children grow pale. Confined indoors,
for many hours a day, studying at night,
perhaps, deprived of much out-of-door
exercise, their blood grows thin. Com
pare your child’s complexion with what
it was last summer. Probably you have
not realized how thin tiie blood was get
ting because the change was so gradual.
When a child formerly bright and
active loses color and finds play an ef
fort, but prefers to sit still and read,
there is every reason to suspect that the
blood is getting thin, that the child is
anemic. Sometimes there is headache
and nosebleed. These confirm the sus
picion. It is a condition that is full of
danger, for thin blood is an open door to
many diseases, especially during change
ful weather. But it is a condition that is
easily remedied if taken in time. Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills can be obtained at
any drug store. A fifty-cent box con
tains about two weeks treatment and
these pills are a great blood-builder and
invigorator.. They are just the sort of
non-alcoholic tonic that many children

Political Points.
Secretary McAdoo asks bids for 1,
200,000 pounds of bank note paper. Is
there to be an issue of shin plasters with
the fictitious net balance in the general
fund of the Treasury to redeem them?
Mr. Bryan, while denouncing Wilson
for having gone “joy riding with the
jingoes," insists that he has no personal
differences with his former chief. We
believe that sacred history tells ol one
who approached his victim asking, “Art
thou in health, my brother?”
The Underwood law was characterized
by its framer as a “competitory” meas
ure. It is, to the limit. Under it 74 per
cent of our imports are coming in free,
and the average duty rate now hovers
around eight per cent. As a revenue
producer it is a farce, and the Democrats
are now suggesting 57 varieties of taxa
tion to bolster it up.
According to the Monthly Crop Re
port, published by authority of the Se
cretary of Agriculture, the prices of meat
animals (hogs.cattle, sheep, and chick
ens) paid to producers of the United
States, as shown by the index figure on
December 15th, last, was about 5.5 per
cent lower than a year previously, and
8.8 per cent lower than two years be
fore. But there is nothing to show that
the consumer paid less for these products
over the counter.
A Washington dispatch to the New
York “Evening Post” exults that the
report on Mexico which has been sent to
the Senate “is by no means as full of dy
namite for this administration as the Re
publicans had hoped.” The dynamite, I
let us say, exists. It may be kept in
cold storage in the fileB of the State De
partment for a time. But it is bound to
explode one of these days. Concealment
of facts never yet helped an administra
“Foreign relations taking first place,”
says a head-line in the New York Journal
of Commerce. The article following goes
on to say that economic questions as po
litical issues are being forced to the rear.
The President said some time ago that
the Republicans would have but one issue
— the tariff. But he has changed his
mind again, and given them another—
the foreign policy. The Republicans
will meet him on his own ground with
either one, or both.
We have not always agreed with the
utterances of George W. Perkins in mat
ters political, but he surely strikes a re
sponsive chord in our nature when he de
scribes himself as believing in Republi
canism “of the Abraham Lincoln, Thom
as B. Reed, JameB G. Blaine, William
McKinley” brand. Reflecting upon the
present manner of conducting our foreign
relations, we are inclined to place our
emphasis upon the “James G. Blaine”
portion of Mr. Perkins’s words.
In a recent issue of Commerce Reports,
the Department of Commerce expressed
great surprise that the Netherlands
and Switzerland “sold much larger quan
tities of milk in the United States in 1915
than ever before.” Inasmuch as the
Democratic tariff law placed condensed
milk on the free list, there is nothing
surprising about the fact that European
countries are taking advantage of it.
However, half our condensed milk im
ports are coming from Canada, who
turned down our reciprocity offer in 1911
and received free access to our market
in 1913.
Colds, running of nose, continued irritation
of the mucous membrsnce if neglected may
mean Catarrh later. Don’t take the chances—
do something for your child! Children will
not take every medicine, but they will take
Dr. King’s New Discovery and without bribing
or teasing. Its a sweet pleasant Tar Syrup
and so effective. Just laxative enough to elim
inate the waste poisons. AhnoBt the first
dose helps. Always prepared, no mixing or
fussing. Just ask your druggist for Dr,
King’s New Discovery. It will safe-guard
your child against serious ailments rei
from colds.

Washington Letters.
Suppressing Facts Regarding Mexico.
Washington, March 13, 1916. After
many weeks of delay Mr. Wilson deigned
to make answer to the Senate’s demand
for information regarding affairs in Mex
ico. When Senator Fall first formulated
his requests for the facts, early in the
session, there was a disposition among
Democrats to smother the resolution in
committee; but as this method seemed
too transparent and too dangerous, the
administration forces made a fine show
of bravery, asserted that there was
nothing to be concealed in the Mexican
business, and the resolution was
passed without opposition.
At length the reply came—in the form
of a letter from Secretary Lansing, who,
writing at the President’s orders, de_
dares that it is ‘‘incompatible with the
public interest” to make known much of
the material which the Senate asked for.
Among those hidden facts are the orders
under which our forces entered upon the
ill-starred expedition to Vera Cruz and
the correspondence sent to the State De
partment by the Brazilian Minister in
Mexico while he was in charge of our
interests there.
But the outstanding facts which Mr,
Wilson could not deny to the Senate and
to the country iB contained in Mr. LanB
ing’s admission that 93 Americans have
been murdered in Mexico since "watch
ful waiting” began its deadly work and
that 36 others—among them 16 Ameri
can soldiers—have been killed on Ameri
can soil by bands of Mexican invaders.
In the face of these gruesome details
Mr. Wilson has the hardihood to tell the
senate tnat there is in Mexico reason
ably adequate protection to the lives and
property of Americans” and that Car
ranza is maintaining as good a govern
ment down there as anyone ought to ex
Fortunately the files of the State De
partment are not the only place in which
to find authentic information regarding
conditions in Mexico. Senator Fall, who
introduced the resolution of inquiry,and
who was careful to draft his demands to
cover the essential points in such an in
quiry, already has authenticated informa
tion covering much of the ground which
Mr. Wilson seeks to surround with sec
recy. This information will be given to
the country by means of debate in the
Senate; and Mr. Wilson will find that he
cannot hoodwink the country as to the
fruits of his disastrous Mexican policy.
Financial Failures of the Administration.
Washington, D. C., March 13, 1916.
“One of the best arguments for the Re
publican protective tariff policy has been
furnished by the Democratic party.”
This comment was made byRepre sent
ative Charles B. Timberlake of Colorado
on the recent action of the Democratic
caucus pledgirg support to the bill for
retaining the present duty on sugar.
“In the first place, this proposal to
maintain the present sugar tax is an ad
mission by, the Democrats of the finan
cial failure of their administration,”
said Mr. Timberlake. “Confronted by
an ever-increasins- deficit in the treas
nry, and at their wits’ end how to meet
it, they are forced to recognize Republi
can principle to prevent a further annual
Iobs of about $40,000,000 in revenue.
''Furthermore, the secondary effect of
the Democratic reduction of about 50
cents per hundred pounds in the sugar
duty constitutes another admission of
failure. When the Democrats advocated
free sugar, they claimed that the price
of sugar to the consumer would be re
duced in proportion to the reduction in
duty. But what are the facts?
“The partial reduction in the sugar
duty wiped out the cane sugar industry
of the United States. It partially des
troyed the beet sugar industry and com
pletely’blocke d its further development
It conferred a benefit upon the sugar in
dustry in foreign countries. It reduced
the annual customs revenues about ten
millions. At the same time the price of
sugar in America has remained practi
cally the same.
“In short, this one item in the Demo
cratic tariff law has reduced our rev
enues, tremendously damaged American
iudustry, aided foreign competitors, and
has been of no benefit whatever to Ameri
can consumers.
“t is not surprising that individual
IDemocrats in the recent caucus refused
to abide by its decision hecaus e it was
furnishing ammunition to their oppo
nents. The Republican contention has
been completely justified.”
