\V. S. Perrine, forest supervisor,
with headquarters in Great Falls,
arrived here last Saturday to super
intend the planting of 080,000 yellow
pine trees in Dry Coulee, in the
Swimming Woman country. Mr.
Perrine reports that lie will have 20 |
men at work in that section in a few !
days setting out these trees, which is ,
a part of th» government plan to re- |
forest the Snowy mountains, a part of (
the Jefferson forest reserve. In a few !
weeks, Mr. Perrine says, he will be !
ready to employ 40 men in tiiis work. 1
and that lie prefers to employ home- |
ateaders in that vicinity.

'Tis not work that knocks our j

there is no good cause. Every indi- |

J The one who is in perfect health
kuows little about worry. But the
one in health can soon be numbered
among the chronics physically
if he will allow the little affairs of
life to grow as a worry upon him.

There is a growing impression that
the public sciiool may take a wider
range than the mere elucidation of
mathematical problems or the unfold
ing of natural aud scientific law. It
is now held that a boy cannot too
early regard himself as a citizen of
the Republic, and be taught along
with a clear idea of such responsibil
ity, a loyal reverence for the flag aud
the names that have perpetuated it.
Should the first day of every sciiool
year be given over to a semi-social
review of public affairs, to the carry
ing of bauners, and the singing of
patriotic sougs, it would be a day
well spent. The Republic lias had
already very serious problems before
it of ace and of the amalgamation of
iiationulities and religions. Tire

B . arrived in the city yesterday aud
"ill locate here permanently. The
doctor is a young man in years, but
°1<I in the practice of medicine, and
conies highly recommended as a phy

On t lie last page of this week's Jour
nal will be found the call for a demo
ci atic county convention to elect dele
gates to the national convention.
Muss Tooiey would not permit the re
puhlican county central committee to
call :i county convention, but the
democratic county central committee,
being untrammelled by a boss, is go
ing to allow the democrats a chance
to express their preference for a can
didate for president of their party.
Now is a good time to take a glance
over your backyards and devise some
plan to ostracise the fruit cans and
rubbish which have accumulated
since the last installment was re
moved. You can generally judge of
the occupants of a house by the con
dition in which the front and back
-yards are kept. In a general sense
we all pride ourselves on being
cleanly and tidy. Home and its sur
roundings above all places in the
world should be scrupuosly guarded
against contaminating intiuences.
In every town yon find sonie sien
who always croak aud growl; their
chief amusement seems to be to snarl
and whine and howl. Of course they
do not prosper well—such people sel
dom do—and so they strive to make
themselves aud all their neighbors
blue. If strangers come these men
endeavor to get them off alone, and
while they speak in doleful tones, tell
them how the town is dead and passed
away, and hasn't any enterprise that
half begins to pay; how real estate is
very low and taxes very high, and
every improvement scheme is sure to
wane and die. The good book says a
day will come when all must pass
away aud swop for wings and golden
harps this tenement of clay, the earth
will burn with fervent heat, the sun
go out in gloom, and every living,
breathing thing shall find a real tomb.
When that time comes the croaker
who drives against liis town—and
tries to drive good men away and
breaks their efforts down—will be de
clared a victim for a special dose of
flame—ten thousand years and he will,
be roasting just the same. Meantime
the energetic man who labors for his
town, always works to build it up in
stead of tearing down, will ride from
earth to heaven in a Fullnian palace
car, and will dwell in peace forever
where the first-class angels are.
