Pool is a fine garre; I used to like t,. play it myself; there is nothing wrong with it and It's a good thing for a boy to know how to play. He should know pool and billiards. The grames. are ail right. But when youngsters get to, playing this newfangled form they calm pea pol and wagering their money on the games. It in time to rall a halt. There have been some 1very unfortu. nate cases right here In this town. where boys have plunged into debt in the blamed game. It was time Chlef Vealey acted and I am glad he acted as he did. If the youngsters do not ,quit the practice there will have to be sternrr measures taken. I want you to quota me as indorsing the chief in this matter and put me on record, too. as saying that I want to ,ee him follow it up closely. I don't want any boys 'drifting into gan.bling by this route." "Thingn will bhe moving soon in the newer work." naid Mayor Logan to a Milsoullan man. "Engi IUSY neer Swearingen will he SOON here to take Lp the field work for the south side system soon. He has the detailn of the work for the north side of the river all ready and the plan for the south side is to be worked out soon. The alder men are agreed that the work shoulo be started early and I have, talked the matter over with many busineos men and property owners: I have not been able to find any objection to the plan which calls for an early start and fanst work in the construction. I have given my Ideas In the matter no often that I don't think I am misunderstood. I want the city to have a eiewer system that will stand for all time and I be lieve that in what the people want. We who are in the city office want the help of the residents in the Improve ment districts, that there may he no question about the thoroughness of the construction work. With an early start we shall be able to get the systen. In atalled this year and to have some pav Ing done. It will have to to a case of pull together, though." Tom McCain was one of the visitors. in Missoula during ho:iday'week and L N he spent considerable LOOKING time look'ng over the AHEAD city. Tom, since he moved up to Hamilton. is not as frequent a visitor as he used to be wheh he was a close neighbor. bt t he always finds a cordial welcome when he does come. This time he has been out West for a while and was on his way home; he compared Missoula with what he had seen down coast. ward and with what he had known of the city in past days. ""Do you know." alased be. "that you will lIve lons enough to see a hundred thousand peo. i pIs here in Missoula? I expect to live that long myse:f and I am a good d-al older than you 'are. There is every thing here to make a good city and the way things are shaping I think you'll have to raise your sights a lit tle and set your mark higher than the fifty-thousand point where you have it now. Fifty thousand is all right for a starter, but you'll find that you are going to swing past that mark sooner than ono.e of you expect. I've seen other citlie grow." oDr. Elrodl. as secretary of the Montana State Horticultural soelety. is hard at work with the prelimi A GOOD naries for the annual MEETING meeting of that excel lent organisation which will be held next month in Plains. It was through the efforts of Dr. Elrod that the Miassoula chamber of Com merce donated a cash prise of $2I5 or the best three boxes of apples displayed at the annual exhibition of the society this year. "I think we are going to have the best meeting we have had in a long time." said Dr. Elrod to a Mis soulian man. "The program will be. good and there is much at Plains to, make the session interesting. The peo pie down there are much interested in the plans for the meeting and they at going to do all they can to n.ake it a success. \'e will have a good attend ance. I am certain, and the hospitality of the Plains folk is .o well knows. that there is no doubt tf the pleasure I that we shall han'e in the visit. I hope i' MiHnoula wi!ll send a good delegation." There Is no doubt of the fragrance of the tobaccol smoke which filled The Missot:lian office last FROM night but there is some GOETHE doubt as to the authen ticy of the card which accompanied the box of Havanas which produced the delightful aroma. The cigars were the genuine article but the card bore "The Compliments of Welt. gang Goethe." Goethe was an eat'm, able German: his poetry is delightful and he lived a model life: but we dei not believe in The Missoullan office that he was a good-enough judge of clgars to make so excellent a selec tion. There is a suspicion that the Havanas came from County Clerk Ku phal who is a better man than Goethe because he as alive. The cigars were thoroughly appreciated and The Mis soulian office hopes that every finan cial statement which the county clerk makes will make as fine a showing as does the present one and that the Missoula Maennerehor will always sing as delightfully as it does right now.

A WISE BIRD GIVES HIS OPINION "1 wish I had a fur coat like a polar bear." said Willie Sparrow up on returning to the electric sign for the night. "This is just like the weath er up at Saskatoon. Saskatchewan. Willie continued. "Thls is like the weather up at Sas katoon on the IFourth of July y.oI mean. You go up there now and you'll get your beak frosen off." The chipper was a wise looking spar row who looked like the survivor of many hard winters. and who was. evi lently satisfied with the prevailing conditions. The wise bird was anrgy and he( abused Willie by calling him a "'home guard." "You wing around a little and you'll find .out you are way wrong. I I'm what they call an itinerant bird and I know what I'm chirping about. This is the warmest place in the country. In fact it is too good a ptlace, for our oa n gookd. You know yourself. Willie Sparrow. that the sparrow colony htas increased from a Iopulatlion of aboiut seven to a figure above the 500 mark. Why is it? I'll tell you. it's because it is the best place- in the country to winter in-very little cold weather, no violent winds andt a moderate snowfall. We have to be cnreful about sending out this information or we will have all of the sparrrs a in the country over here. If we are not very cautious the good peo pie here will rise up in arms against us and charge us with all kinds of depredations. We can't be too carefuL I think we had better fly in smaller: flo-ks than we have been doing and the increase Isn't so noticeable." I guess you are right about this being a good place." said Willie. "I will admit that I am no 'boomer' bird and all of my opinions have been based on what I have heard other birds say. I think now that I was wrong. We should fly in smaller flocks for a while and the people won't notice so many of us here. I like it here fine and would miss this electric sign at nalhLt but we must be cautlous." Little Willie had been convinced that ie was living in the best part of the 'ountry. but before closing his eyes he said: '"I wonder how long they 1 will let us stay?
