Death of Clarence Engberg. The sad news of the deatli of Clar ence Engberg was sent from Lewis town last Friday morning. The lad accidentally shot himself Wednesday afternoon, the details of the occur rence being published in last week's Journal. The physicians who per formed tlie operation were in hopes that tlie hoy would recover, but the shock of the accident was too great for even such a vigorous constitution as Clarence had, and he succumbed Friday in the hospital at Lewistowu. The funeral services were held at tlie undertaker's rooms and the burial took place in the Lewistown ceme tery. Tlie services were conducted by Rev. Air.

The public schools of Judith Gap, opened on September 3rd, with an at tendance of 27 iu the grammar grades and 23 in the primary and intermedi ate grades. A class in lirst year high school has been started. No need to go away to school. Try tlie Judith Gap schools lirst. New books for all the grades have been sent for aud are expected to ar • ve any day.. This will be of great benefit to the eflieienoy of the school work as attempting to study without books is rather uphill work for tlie majority of pupils. There will be no school on Friday of this week, ou>account of tlie llirch dav Festival held in this city. The seventh and eighth grade Arith metic classes are reviewing problems in carpentering and plastering. The ancient history class is mak i'iR a study ol' the literature, art and industrial occupations of the ancient Egyptians. " e would suggest that parentshav children who have not entered school, have them enter as soon as possible in order to get the lull bene fit of the year's schooling. Article 15. see. tn>5 of the school laws of Montana provides that all children 1 between the ages of Sand 14years, must attend school during the full time that school is in session. Par ents not complying with the law are subject to a tine. —F. A. Clothier, Teacher. CHILDREN SHOULD NOT USE GUNS To the Editor of the Judith Gap Journal:—We were deeply shocked and grieved at the sad accident tha befell Clarence Engberg, when he shot himself thefourth of this month. Is any one to blame for the same? I would answer "yes." 1 would say you and I and the whole state are to blame. In the lirst place, was it an accident? Or was it not rather the logical outcome of careless and moi» ally criminal practices? When children are allowed to har» die guns betöre they are old enough to know right and wrong, they are not to blame if they injure themselves or others by so doing. But the state is to blame, so then,' let the Journal start an agitation for the state law wliioh will prohibit children under any circumstances from using guns or ammunition until sixteen years of age. Let there be a law made that will punish parents by tines, for allowing children to have guns, or otherwise, also'a law tbit* will punish any storekeeper for sell ing either guns or ammunition to children under that age. If such a law had been in force, Clarence Engberg would not have used his gun as a club to kilt a rab bit with and so would not have been shot. You may answer, Clarence Engberg was over fifteen years old he ought to have known better, but you must re member that he has handled a gun ever since he came to Judith Gap and so naturally a carelessness and a con fidence mingled with tiie ignorance and the danger of a gun became his second nature. On the other hand had not Clar ence Engberg handled a gun until he was sixteen he surely would have had more respect for a gun and his habits would have then been formed to be careful. Now perhaps you think your child is safe with a gun and I think my child is safe with a gun, but next time your child or mine or some oth er child, whose parents never allowed to handle a gun might be shot and an other child's blood iB over our heads. Aliy one who will get a law through to that effect will confer a boon and a blessing on the state, and on the home, and on the individual. Hemember this state is getting settled and civilized and some of the prevailing gnu practices ought to be stopped. Yours truly, John T. Carlson. Congregational Cbnrch Notice. The Rev. E. E. Smith of Great Falls will preach Sundav, Sept. 15th at Iff o'clock iu the morning.
