BIGGER MILL AT HARLÖWTON Harlow ton, Mav 22.—At a meeting of the directors of the Montana Floor Mills company held at Jjie'r offices in Harlowton today important action was taken looking towards the exten sion and expansion of the mills' busi ness, the board authorized the con struction of a four story stone addi tion to the present building to be us ed for elevator work and cleaning purposes, also the construction of six reinforced concrete grain tanks with a capacity of '250,000 bushels. The Montana Elevator company, which is under the same management as the milling company, authorized the erection of elevators at Judith Gap, Oka, Lavina, ltyegate, Shaw mut, Twodot, Martinsdale and White Sulphur Springs. The new addition to the mill will double its capacity and gi ve IIarlowton the most complete milling plant in the state. + + ❖ + + + ^ + + + + 1' + + + + + ♦ Preparing the Straw- + ♦ berry Bed for Winter. * 1 ■ ■ =* *•* By O. B. Whipple, Horticultur- * ♦ let, Montana Agricultural ^ ^ College. .j. ♦ ♦ + + + + + + 4 , + + + + , l , 4 , + + Can the Btrawberry bed take care of itself during the fall and winter? Some people would answer this ques tion in the affirmative if we can judge by the way their plants are taken care of. But while the strawberries do often take care of themselves in win ter, they will in nine cases out of ten wpay the grower for a little extra oare at this time. Two conditions are quite necessary •or the proper protection of the bed during winter. First, the ground •hould be well supplied with moisture os freezing weather comes on. When the Boll is dry and the winter proves dry and severe, many plants may die out before spring. Evon in cases where the plants are not killed out right, their vitality may be reduced so much as to seriously affect the sea son's crop. If irrigation water is avail able, this requirement is easily met. The application need not be extra Ikeavy and may be applied at any time after frost and before the ground freezes. However, if the soli is moist and some late fall and winter mois ture can be depended upon, it will be useless to irrigate. If no Irrigation water is available, the moisture pres ent may be coneerved by late fall cul tivation. If earlier cultivation has &een neglected and the bed suffers during the winter, profit by the ex perience and give the bed better cul tivation another year. Second, the ground should be pro tected from rapid and frequent freez ing and thawing. The best way to do this is to givq the bed a light covering of straw. This mulch need be only two or three inches thick and should cover the entire surface. This should be applied as soon as the ground is frozen and should not he removed un til the plants start in the spring. If left as long as possible it will retard the blooming of the plants and may thus carry them safely through the spring frost period. The material should be as free from weed and grain seed a« possible. Pea straw is one of the most satisfactory materials for mulching. This mulch will also save some moisture and protect the bed in this way. While strawberries frequently pass the winter unprotect ed, it pays in most cases to give them some protection. «I» *1« af* »J. ,*• o|* •?« oje «So »I« *1« + * 4* In the matter of clean milk •! 4* it is not knowledge that we *j* 4* need so much as it is the de- *F sire to do decently the things •!• 4* we already know. 4* 4* «I* #|o o|e *'• •£• •£« ojo olo •?« *|a •£• ej. o|o *j. •*« Queer Coronation Gifts. One of the most extraordinary gifts made on tbe coronation day of Edward 1. was that of 500 horses which hud been used by the royal princes and other personages in the procession to Westminster abbey. These horses, all richly caparisoned aud harnessed Just •a they were, were let loose iuto the very midst of tbe mob after the ban quet In Westminster hall that always succeeded a coronation in those days. The people in the streets were permit ted to catch the unlmals, aud to him who caught a horse it and Its appoint ments belonged.—London Chronicle. SEVEN YEAR MARRIAGE. I base my demand for a seven year marriage lease on the fact that the human system changes every seven years. Oue might be madly In love during the first period of married life and wake up to find that husband or wife was the complete reverse of one's dreams and wholly unsuit able, and yet the other would b® doomed either to undergo the lg iioniy of a divorce suit or strug gle on bending the neck to a yoke more galling with each day that passed. On the other hand, if a lease were signed at the time of mar riage, with the possibility of freedom at the end of the given term, should either desire It, con sider what it would mean. A wife would conclude to keep si lence, to reveal nothing of do mestic inharmony with the close of her seven year sentence In sight. Roth husbund aud wife, with the knowledge that mutual respect and reliance could only bring about the iierpetuation of the bond, would be lees careless of each other's rights and feel ings. The children would escape the heritage of scandal which so often attaches to divorced par ents.—Mrs. H. II.

An Irishman went into a barber •bop, and the unsteady galt with which he approached the cbalr showed that be had been / Imbibing of the produce of the still. He want ed his hair cut, and while the barber was get ting him ready went off into a sleep. Ills heud kept bobbing from one side to the other, and at length the bar ber In making a snip cut oil the lower part of his ear. The barber gasped, then Jumped about aud howled, und a crowd of neighbors rushed in. Finally the demonstration became so great that It began to at tract the attention of the man in the chair, and he opened one eye and said, "Wta-wh-at's the matter wld yez?" "Good Lord!" said the barber. "I've cut off the whole lower part of your ear." "Have ye? Ah, thin, go on wld yer business. It was too long anyhow!" THE BARBEE OABPED. An Oversight. "I trust you slept comfortably and had everything you needed," said Sandy Macpherson's hostess one cold morning last winter. "Ay, wool enough," replied her guest, a venerable Scot, "but 1 dlnna see the guld of yon bottle in the bed." "Why, wasn't the water hot?" the hostess asked In surprise. "Verra hot." responded Mncpherson, "but ye forgot to put anything In it." Expecting Too Much. "A rather finicky old chap who was traveling off the beaten paths struck a somewhat shabby hotel, which was principally used by workmen from a nearby construction camp. He paid a dollar In udvance for room and break fast. tbc clerk remarking caustically thut "a suit case Isn't a guarantee that the bill will be paid, especially when a guy has a room on the second floor." And Just before midnight the Indignant Mr. Smith piled down luto the hotel office, almost dressed. "What's the matter?" asked the sleepy clerk, shifting his pipe to the other corner. "Anything wrong?" "Wrong!" gasped Mr. Smith, trem bling. "Wrong! Confound your old dump, anybow! 1 saw a pair of ruts as big as hedgehogs fighting in the middle of my room." "Huh," said the clerk, closing his ayes and preparing to return to sleep. "What do you want for a dollar -a bullfight'/''—Herbert Corey la Clm ln oati Tlmes-Star. Notice of Contest.
