Vote For County Division and Judith Gap for County Seat
Judith Gap Journal VOL. 5. NO. 26. JUDITH GAP. MONTANA. FRIDAY. MAY 9, 1913. PRICE, FIVE CENTS COUNTY DIVISION ELECTION TODAY Today is the day of the Wheatland County Division Election. The people in the new proposed county have a momentuous ques tion hanging in the balance The majority of the people are undecided as to which way to vote. The people of Hedgesville have taken a decided stand against division; presumably because they are out of the running lor the county seat. Be that as it may. Harlowton is still for division and are living in hopes of a county seat down there regardless of the fact that thev, through carelessness, did not get on the ballot. It has been conceded, within the last few days, that division will carry in the Fergus and Sweetgrass strips. OBSERVE MOTHER'S ' DAY SUNDAY NEXT ! Helena. May 3—Next Sunday, May 11, was deignated aa Mother's day by Gov. S. V. Stewart in the follow ing announcement: "Only a few years ago a movement was inaugurated for the obBervatiée of the second Sunday in May as Mothers's day. The idea awoke in ■tant response in the hearts of the people, and the movement lias grown until today this occasion is observed in many of the states of the Union. "It is held to be protitable for the men and women of this age of intense commercial and industrial activity to divert their minds from tiie usual channels and concentrate them upou some uplifting and cheering and help ful subject. This being true, is there aught that could have so blessed au influence as a season devoted to 'the best mother that ever lived -your mother?' "I, therefore, designate Sunday, the eleventh day of May, nineteen hun dred and thirteen, as Mother's day, and urge upon the people of Montana an observance of the occasion in keep ing with the spirit that prompted the founding of this May festival. If your mother be with you, let the day be one of more marked tenderness to ward her; if you be separated from her by a state or continent, write to lier and tell lier something of the ado ration that is bor'd ue, and if she lias passed over the river that naught can bridge, then should your thoughts be of her ever-watchful love and sac rifice for you. "Let this be a day of family reun ions and of precious memories, and if there be two thoughts of mother where otherwise there might have been but one, then shall the day and the occasion have beautifully served their purpose."' S. V. STEWART, Governor. Clothes may not make a man, but the lack of them would at least be embarrassing. Rradstreet's says that it doesn't cost as much to live as it did.

HILL PREPARING BRILLIANT FINISH FOR THE GLIDDEN RUN FROM TWIN CITIES TO GLACIER NATIONAL PARK Minneapolis, April 28.—Announce ment of the itinerary of the national A. A. A. reliability tour from the Twin Cities to Glacier National l'ark Montana, July 11 to It), made yester day, was accompanied by the state ment that Louis W. Ilill, Chairman of the hoard of directors of the Great Northern Ry., will illuminate the Rocky mountains for the special ben efit of the tourists. Here is bow Mr. Hill proposes to have the tourists get their first glimpse of the real Rockies: He will have stationed outlie moun tain peaks aloug the picturesque rocky range just back of the unique log hotel at Glacier Park station, a score of men who at a given signal will touch of several tons of red, white and blue Roman tire. This striking illuminatiou of the heavens revealing the mountain scenery will be a spectacle that the tourists driv ing over the prairies the last night of the tour will remember. This spec tacular revelation will be pulled off when the pilot car of the tour is with in forty miies of the Rocky mountain range. The itinerary bears the official sanc tion of the A. A. A. This is the lirst time a national reliability ruu has gone to the Rocky mountain range and this fact, coupled with the entry of Long-Time-Sleep, a full-blooded Indian from tiie Glacier Park reser vation. adds considerable interest to tiie tour.

No one can appeal to you just as Hrotlier Van does. Come and hear him and it will do your heart good.—Carlos I). Bradley, pastor. HENRY LANIUS UTTERS THREATS Henry Lanins drove into the city Thursday to look after his political interests. Of course yon all know that Henry's ranch is out here about live miles and until his political aspira tions ran away with him Judith Gap was his town. He hove into view with a big bunch of posters favoring county division. After his protracted stay in foreign parts lie did not know of the feeling here in favor of county division, but at once opened up with tiie threat that he and Harlow were going to have a new county and a county job even if they had to leave Judith Gap in Meagher county connected with White Sulphur Springs by a narrow strip along tiie Relt mountains. A good fat joli looks pretty good to any man, but when lie lias to come among his neighbors and townsmen with threats of dire things to come unless they acquiesce in bis judgment, it is time for the people to take cog nizance of tiie fact that Lanins is looking for a job with a good salary and does not care a snap for county division or anything else. It is a generally known fact that if Henry C. Lanins hud been given a job and kept busy at tilings other than comity division and self aggran dizement that county divisiou would have gone off smoothly. He has come to Judith Gap early in the niorniug, many mornings, and has talked coun ty division and tiie situation at liar lowtou together with considerable hearsay, and has gone to Harlowton in the afternoon telling of tiie situa tion at Judith Gap. lie, with his tale-bearing, has created strife and ill feeling among men who are fight ing for the same cause—county divi sion and tiie good of tiie people. Are yov going to put a man in as treasurer of Wheatland county who, even though lie be a "hrotlier dry lander," will come into his own home and threaten to decapitate you unless you do las otdding. C. L. BEERS THE NEW POSTMASTER C. L. Beers received notification from Washington yesterday that the senate had continued his appoint ment as postmaster for Judith Gap. There's nothing a woman enjoys more than telling how much better her husband's digestive apparatus works since she married him. If a man continues to pay as much attention to his wife a year after mar riage as lie did during the honeymoon he still loves lier or she has him bluffed. Keep the Home Dollar at $$$$$$ Don't send that DOLLAR away ! Spend it in your home town ! A DOLLAR put in circulation here is worth any number in the mails or in the mail order house's pocket. When you send that DOLLAR away some other community makes the profit that might just as well be made by yours. DOLLARS ATTRACT DOL LARS. For every DOLLAR in use in your locality another DOLLAR •will come. Conversely, every DOLLAR that is sent away has a pulling power on another DOL LAR that is left behind. A DOLLAR spent in your home town helps to make your neighbors just that much more prosperous. To that extent, also, it makes the community more prosperous. And it makes you profit in just the same way that the community does. When there is plenty of money in circulation everybody benefits. That's why you should keep just ns many DOLLARS here as you can instead of sending them away. By PATRONIZING IIOML IN DCSTRIES you can do this. Isn't it worth while thinking over?

Now and then a man is found who, with more or less boastfulness, says tliat he "neyer reads ads in newspa pers." Perhaps lie actually imagines that lie does not read tiie advertisers' cards. Nevertheless it is not in tiie nature of an intelligent, wideawake man to fail to peruse at least a por tion of tiie advertising columns of his newspaper. Even though lie may not desire to make purchases, nor to gather particular information about Unanciul or commercial matters, or the doings in the stores, lie is quite likely, alter having disposed of the uews matter, to find himself intent upou those advertisements that ap peal to the eye on account of tiie at tractiveness of their typographical arrangement, or by the announce ment that some article of immediate personal need lias been placed on sale at a moderate price. It is, iu fact, safe to assert ttiat tiie man or woman who devotes fifteen minutes to tiie reading of a newspaper reads also some of the advertisements Hierein. It pays to advertise: if you desire to buv or sell anything you can reach the people of this section through tiie columns of the Journal. Girls of the present day imagine it is more dignified to lie a breadwin ner than a breadmaker. NEW MANAGER FOR DEMOCRAT Harry E.
