POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS. Far Treasurer. I hereby announce niv»elf a* a candidate for Treasurer of Wheatland County. —Henry I.anius. COliNTV DIVISION Hie idea is prevalent that it would be a wise thing to do to defeat county i division at tlua time and later form j new boundary lines and try it again. ; Perhaps the best boundary lines j that can be formed for many years to j come are the present ones. If un at- j tempt is made to take as much terri- j t« ry off Fergus county as we would j like, it would creute an opposition j at Lewistown tliat would defeat divi sion. The same is true of Mussel shell county. If the Hotliiemay country should be included Hnundup j would get busy and defeat the pro ject. Let us be sensible about this mat ter. In order to be progressive and wideawake we should have a new county. In order to run our own af- i fairs, it is necessary that the county j of Wheatland be formed. That is j the main object. It is not ho impor- i tant where the county seal is located | just so we ge ! county division and j become divorced from the present j obnoxious alliance. All the counties j in Montana are too large. It will i not he many years until Fergus | will be cut up into about four count- j ies. Judith tîap, of course, wants ! the county seat and is going to make a strong bid lor tbe same. It will probably be able to offer the voters a deed to two blocks in tbe townsite for court bouse purposes. It will undoubtedly be able to go further and offer the county a building suit able for court bouse purposes rent free for two years. And it may do other tilings that, will help to save the taxyayers* money. The main light, however, is for county division. If it is going to benefit the properly owners in the eastern eiul of the county, we want it. Kacli succeeding year you will timi It harder to become divorced from the old county, and now that we have a chance to divide we will always regret it if we do not take advantage of the present golden opportunity. Public Sale. The following account of in auc tion sale to be held at the White ilouse in Washington, D. (!., ingo ing the rounds of the press, and is tickling the ribs of democrats: Public Sale- Having decided to move, we will sell at public auction at the east door of the White House, Washington, 1».

Jau 15 .-Ten car loads'of fat steers, numbering 210 head were shipped through the city this morning enroute from the vici nity of Hardin to Portland, Oregon. The animals were fed on the ranch of Chas. M. Blair and were in prime condition, The steers averaged about Moo pounds in weight and the price received was approximately « cents per pound. This means that each of the animals were sold for about $«5 and that the clieck received for the consignment was nearly $ 18 , 00 «. As has been previously announced, feed ing operations are being carried on on a somewhat extensive scale in this winter and at present 8,000 cattle and 15,000 sheep are being prepared for the market in the yards of the Hil lings Sugar company. These will soon be in a finished condition and it is sxpected they will he placed on the market within the next few weeks as some have already been sold. Last season it.ooo cattle and o.ooo sheep were fed in these yards and an im mense some was expended in carry ing on the operations. Among the items of expense was $4l«,ooo for al falfa and approximately $00,000 for beet pulp und refuse molasses obtain ed front the sugar company. It is not known what the total expense was, hut an idea of the profits may be gained from statements of stock men whicii are to the effect that it c »it s about $20 to fatteu s steer, this, however depending upon his condi tion when placed ou feed, also the length of time he is in the yards. This is usually figured at UK) days. It is said that the cost of good steers when taken from the range is be tween $f>o and $55, and at the price received for the Hair animals it is estimated that the net protit would approximate $to to $15 per head. During the last few days prospective buyers from Chicago, Omaha, Port land, Twin Cities, Seattle, Spokane and othi*r markets have made head quarter! in Hillings in quest of fat cattle and sheep. , During the last three months of lt*12, winter was that in name only, for at no time did the mercury deceml to the cipher reading, in fact only in two instances did it approach near that mark. On Dec. lo the record was 8 above and on Dec. U it was two degrees lower, , and with these exceptions there were few, occasions when the thermometer showed a temperature below freezing. The pre sent cold period brought with it a snow fall of considerable depth and this is what we most desired, for the broad areas seeded to wheat were covered with q protecting mantle, which not only prevents winter kill ing, but the resulting moisture will uo a long way toward insuring a heavy yield next, summer. Before the coming of the suow, farmers of the noil-irrigated districts, while admitting tliat the wheat crop was in an apparently good condition, called attention to the fact that the long continued dry weather, coupled with considerable wind, was bringing about a condition which would ulti malely mean material injury and all agreed that a heavy snow was what was most needed. It was also said that the range was becoming badly in need of moisture, hut as virtually all stock has been rounded up and is being fed on alfalfa and other forage its shortage on the range has not been noticed to any appreciable ex tent. At the present time stock and farming conditions throughout east ern Montana are satisfactory, no losses have been experienced and stock men and old timers are taking an optomistic view of n eat her con ditions and are predicting an early spring. MONTANA AS A CORN STATE Hillings, Mont., Jan. 15.—Future years will see Montana a cattle rais ing state of more importance than was true iu the halcyon days of the range, is the opinion of l'rof. Alfred Atkinson, agronomist of the State Agricultural College, who liases his prediction on the tact that, in addi tion to alfalfa, it is now proved that the climatic, conditions and the soil are admirably adapted to the success ful production of corn, anil with this food combination, the cattle feeding industry is destined lo become great iu volume and decidedly prolitahle to those who engage in it. Notwithstanding the fact that Mon tana is not generally looked upon as a corn raising state, he is certain tliat it will soon lie recognized as one of the leaders in this branch of farm industry, and it will he hy cul tivating the variety known as North western Dent tliat this will he hrough! about. This corn has for a few years been grown to a considerable extent, par ticularly in the Kaaterit part of Mont ana, and Frof. Atkinson says that on account of the fact that it will mature within (to to tin davs following planting, it may be cultivated with •ucceaa on the non-irrigated, aa well as tint valley lauds. The crop will *<*lao take the place of summer fallow and ia doubly valuable for this reason. Iu this part of the state consider able attention has been given to corn growing during the last live years, though a few farmers have grown small acreages for a much longer period; but with the steady increase in the area devoted to it* within tbe next decade corn will be recognised as one of the staple products of the Yellowstone Valley and the adjacent uplaude. Yields ranging from as to 75 bushels per acre have been secured in this locality and in quality- the corn is fully equal to any produced iu the corn belt states of the middle, west. ♦♦♦♦♦♦«•♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦•♦♦♦•♦•«•a !

MUST LIVE ON HOMESTEADS A news Item from Chinook says a case which has been of much interest to. many homesteaders, especially those who have business and employ ment in town, is that of Eva J. Un derwood vs. Charles Snedecor, save the Fort Benton River Press. The case was vigorously fought from the local oflice through the general land ofliice up to the secretary. The suit was brought on account of non-com pliance as to residence of the contes tée, the entrytnan having expended a large amount of money in improve ments, but had made his home on a rented rauch several milds from his homestead. - Many of the local homesteaders were of the opinion that such a good showing for improvements and culti vation were evident that the contes tant could not win out, however, the secretary decided in favor of the con testant. Eva J. Underwood. The decision reads: ''Improve ments, no matter how extensive and expensive, do not take the nlace of residence, which is a prime and es sential requisite of the homestead law." This will give many local homesteaders a hunch, for laud in northern Montana is getting valuable and many newcomers coiniug iu pre fer land near town than out several miles, and would not object to con* testing.

Some Bible students Infer from the chron ology tbat It wan two years froth Adam's creation tintil tbe expul //* 7 0 A alon from Eden under tbe death sentence. The cause for tbe di fir vision of Adam Into two persons is stated: the earth was to bo thoition «r am un mto populated with a tuo port*. race of his spe cies. and amongst all tbe creatures none was suitable as companion and mother of Ills offspring. Thus again ts shown that Adam was distinctly dif ferent from np<»s arid all other crea tures tinder his control. He was la the lik«*ness of his Creator. Other Scriptures show us that it is tbe Di vine purpose that the sex tpiallty in humanity shall be dropp«»d. The division of Adam Into two parts left tbe headship with the male, but deprived him of s«»nu» of his sym pathetic qualities. His wife had less of tbe mnscullno and uggr«*sslv«» traits; but the two were perfectly adapted to ea«»h other and fulfilled each other's ideals. The full from God's favor ban affected both sexes, producing ex tremes of coarseness and effeminacy, and robbing the marriage relationship of Its ideal happiness.
