A re presentative of the company was in the city last week and en&talled the necessary scales, testers, and other apparatus necessary to grade cream. Mr. Stone has turned the manage ment of the cream department oyer to one of his efficient employees, Frank Grieve, who will take your cream, test and weigh it and pav you cash for it. Shipments of cream will be made twice a week to start with and in the near future it is hoped that a sufficient amount of cream will come in to warrant shipment three or four times a week. Mr. Stone iias a cellar that is both cool and sanitary and he will undoubt edly handle many pounds of butter fat this summer. This is the right system.

Beers & Haynes PIONEER MERCHANTS JUDITH GAP SCHOOL CLOSED LAST FRIDAY The Judith (lap schools closed last Friday after one of tlit* most success ful terms of school ever held in the district. The reason for tlie early dismissal of school is accounted for by the scarcity of holidays through out the terms and the one week's va cation at Christmas time. !So many of the children are needed to help at home in the gardens and with farm work that it was decided to be for the best to have school dismissed before a large number of children would have to leave. Prof. F. A. Clothier, Mrs. C, H. Butter and Miss Bertha Small, the efficient teachers, have been highly complimented ni their success with the scholars. The school board held a meeting Monday night at which arrangements were made to hire the samé teachers for uuother year. WISCONSIN IS AFTER EXHIBIT Additional evidence in support of the fact that the Montana State fair is attracting nation wide attention ami also that eastern states are be coming alarmed at the number of set tlers coming to Montana came to Secretary A. J. Rreitenstein Monday in the form of a letter from the secre tary of the Wisconsin state fair ask ing for space for a large agricultural exhibit at the coming exposition. Tliis is the first time since the or ganization of the state fair that an outside community lias asked for space with the exception of once when western Canada, which had a small exhibit. While it lias many times been apparent that eastern states have looked on the Montana fair as a great ami coming institution, none of them have tried to procure space. Although there is still some space that lias not been reserved for the fall show, in view of the crowded condition in the agricultural build ing the past few years, it is hardly likely that the Wisconsin exhibit can be accommodated. Montana coun ties will come first and as in the past many Moutana, counties have been unable to secure the space they de sired, there is little liklihood that there will be any available space left after all the reservations from Mon tana counties are in.—Helena Record.

COUNTY DIVISION DID NOT CARRY IN FERGUS STRIP Friday in the election that was held for the formation of Wheatland coun ty out of portions of Meagher, Sweet grass and Fergus counties. The di vision carried strong in Meagher county with the exception of iledges vi 1 le precinct which went almost solidly against it. The Sweetgrass strip went for division hut the Fergus strip went against it by a vote of 27 to It. Ilarlowton won the county feat by a two to one majority over Judith Gap. Tliie was caused by the large vote in Ilarlowton which was com posed largely of non-taxpayers and ablv assisted by Niliill and Hedges ville. These two towns showed in a most emphatic manner their jealous dispositions. They voted almost solidly for ilarlowton in preference to Judith Gap although they are on the same line of railroad as Judith I I ; j i ! j j Grains Grown Without Irrigation. a§Sg, ... m mm mm FROM ALL OVER THE STATE ARE COMING REPORTS OF UNEX PECTEDLY LARGE YIELD8 OF DRY LAND PRODUCTS. ^ --- -------------------.--a— ...... ...... = I NIHILL \ ♦ ♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ Miller Smith of Harlow is a hustler and the hoys like him.

NOMINATIONS MADE FOR CITY OFFICIALS The primary convention held last Monday evening was one of tin* best public meetings ever held in our little city. The appointment by the con vention of II. I.. Hills as the citizens' candidate for mayor met .with the approval of all. The coimcilnieii ap pointed as candidates of tlie first ward met witii no opposition at all and were acclaimed as the candidates by tlie voters of that ward.

GOVERNMENT MEN SURVEYING LAND A party of survoyors are now sur veying lands along tlie Helt moun tains in this county. There are some large areas of unsiirveyed lands that have in recent years been eliminated from tlie forest reserve. There will he over three townships of the best land in the world thrown open for filing. A large number of squatters are already on tlie lands and many more are preparing to go on. It will possibly be a year before filings can be taken through the local land office for entrys on tills land, be cause tlie surveyors' data and plats will have to be sent to Washirgton and accepted. All such routine work takes considerable time. The begger's story is a touching tale—if it makes a hit. Most of us are proudest of tlie things we iuteud to do.

Judith Gap, - * = Montana YOU CAN HEI P PURE FOOD CRUSADE By HOLLAND. E VERY ONE appreciates tiie importa nee of pure food. All appreciate the danger in adulteration, the risk in substitution. You can aid the pure food movement and at the same time aid yourself. How? Merely by buying articles that are of known purity aud merit. How can you know these ar ticles? By watching the ad vertising columns in this pa per and in other papers. Man ufacturers who advertise have confidence in their goods and are willing to have themselves and their prod ucts known. Makers of sub stitutes and ••just-as-goods" usually hide behind anonym ity or use a meaningless firm name or brand. PROTECT YOURSELF BY PROTECTING THE PUBLIC. There can lie no better guarantee of the purity and merit of an article than tlie fact that it is widely adver tised'. How Editors Get Rich. After a great deal of worry anc study we have at last figured out how so many country editors get rich Here is tlie secret of their success There is a child born in tlie neighbor hood. The attending phvsician gets $10. Tlie editor gives tlie loud-lunged youngster h good send-off and gets $o. It is christened and tlie minster gets $5 and tlie editor gets $00. It grows up aud marries. Tlie editor publishes another long- winded and tlowery story, and tells a dozen lies a bom "ilia beautiful and accomplished bride.'* Tlie minister gets $10 and a piece of cake. The editor gets $000 aud tliS request to carry tlie groom's subi scription account another year, la the course of time sliedies. The doc tor gets from $5 to floo, the minister gets from $5 to $100, tlie editor pub lishes a notice of deatli and an obitu ary two columns long, lodge resolu tions, a lot of poetry and a card of thanks aud gets $ 0 , 000 . No wonder so nuiny country editors get rich.— Kmpeco News.
