Phone 474 The Best of Everything in the Market NT Exvery little movement has a meaning all its own; each has a sweet signifi cance which gives it NOTHING striking tone; so plain LIKE IT are some, Missourians would not have to be shown: (you can tell, yourself, for sure if you are xatching); there is one peculiar movement that you see upon the street; it comes when all the sidewalks are slippery with sleet: it's emphatic when anatomy and con crete pavement meet; (you'll see it very often if you're watching); it's a quick-and-lively movement that is full of vim and dash; it calls for trom hones' blaring and the cymbals' stir ring clash; and it finds exciting cli max in the hit-the-livement crash; (you will learn the grim details if you are watching); it is not a hootchee kootchee, though it is a muscle dance; it is something like a polka and it has the lBoston prince; sometimes a walltz-likie glide comes in, its witch cry to enhance; (you can size it iup yourself if you are watching); first off, you spring convulsively-with legs apart you leap; you wiggle then and undulate with a snaky sort of creep; with one foot high, your bhal ance you strive-you bet-to keep; (you haven't any time then to be watching); with both arms waving wildly, you take another jump; you cuss the sidewalk owner for a crimll nal and a chump; then you hit the icy iavement with a loud-resounding hui p;llll (anud you look to see if any bI'dy's watching). Being duly deposed and sworn, L. D. i IHoward declares that yesterday morn ing he saw a robin. "I LATE OR don't expect you or EARLY? anyone else to believe the story," he says, "htii I Saw that robin si, clearly that there is no disputing the fact. I have se1 .n robins before, aind I know what they look likie and this one was so close to me that there was no mIistak Ing it. I am satisfied that the bird was thlie real article, tholugh I can't seem to umake acnyone helieve it. All that I want ti know is what the robin is doing here at this time of year. I (an't mnake t .hat out. The winter isn't over by anly means and they say that these birds have unerring In stincts regarding weather. Is that riin a feathered Peary or is it just bughouse'? I can only exllain it by deciding tha: the bird has perverted instincts. Either it can't believe. that this miild weather belongs to winter and is waiting for a change ibefoire hiking south or it thinks spring has ,rmlle and has turned noirthward. Two things are certain. The robin is here and it is going to be ai terribly surprised bird some morning." C'ertainly we have a. decided advant age over the old timers in being able to drive automobiles THE GOOD and discard ear flaps OLD DAYS in the heart of winter, bnlt the change that has nme, over our climate during the last few years has robbed the young Ssters of a lot of fun that those who were boys li years ago used to enjoy. One of those boys, and the time has been so short that he is a tboy still, said: "\Winter isn't half the fun it used to be. \Ihy, I can remember when we used to skate on the river and on IRttlesnake creek every win ter for weeks at a time. It was good skating, too. The ice was smnooth and solid anti there was plenty of it. We used to skate up the Rattlesnake for miles on a path of the best Ice yj oul ciould ask for and I can remem Iber several winters when it was ,pos si.ble to skate from the mouth of the Rattlesnake up to Bonner on the river. Usually there was just a trail of good ice, but it w\as several yards vwide and every inile or two was a pond whtere the skating was splendid. And we had coasting, too, which is I sometlhine Missoula hasn't had for a long t!,i.,. All winter long there was ::now on Rattlesnatke hill and we used to slide from the waterworks clear down to the Cedar street bridge over the creek. ('ofisting and skat ing were the regular schedule for \tweks at a time. And when there was a Ilizzatrd there was no half heartetdniess about it. It used to get so coltd that the schools would close. which is another advantage the youngsters don't enjoy todtay. We had lots of fun In the winter then, though, if I renemmber rightly, It used to be pretty toughlI work carrying In the wood during tihe cold months." The first person to insure a parcels post package at the Missoula. post of flee yesterday was Miss PARCEL E. Lucile Stevens: POST while the first person to receive a package itt Missoula throughl the parcel post was Mrs. Milton Henderson of 1011 South Second street. Her package was mailed at Pony, Mont. Everything in connec tion with the inauguration of the par eel post in Missoula went off swim Ingly. There were a goodly number of packages mailed out and a few were received. They averaged in size and weight much larger than ordinary fourth-class matter, but there were no freaks among the lot. That Missoula merchants intend to maklie good uise of the parcel post.was evidenced f'rom the sale of stamps, more than $100 worth being sold during the day. Tihere was a good call for the new Panama-Pacific exposition stamps yesterday, and they sold well, espe cially considering the fact that tilhe 2-cent stant,,. ilave not been printed. MITCHELL SENTENCED. ChIarles Mitchell, colored, who was arrested for having frightened wonmen and children and for carrying a loaded gun, was before Judge Small yester day, As the result of this interview the colored gentleman will spend the next 90 days in the county jail.

Nelson, dentist, has com pleted the dental exarnination of the pupils in the Central and Whittier schools. His report for the Whittler school is not yet ready. In the Central school the examination discovered for 166 pupils a. total of 690 cavities. Of these 3(02 were in temporary teeth and 388 in permanent teeth. Twenty-three children had had one or more perma ent teeth extracted. The most cavities were found in the first molar, a tooth which comes in at the age of six years, and is often neglected because parents think it is a temporary tooth; while, in fact, it is the first and most import ant of the permanent set, and upon it hinges the arrangement of the rest of the permanent teeth. The condition of the mouth was reported as good, 64; fair, 66; bad, 36. The teeth of 127 children showed need of cleaning by a dentist; 86 children reported using a tooth brush once in a while; 42 not at all, and 58 every day. There were found 64 cases of mai-occlusion or rnooked teeth.

'CHANGE IN COUNTY ADrMII TRAflON MOST OF OFFICERS RE-ELECTED AND MOST OF DEPUTIES TO BE RETAINED. Because of the fact that all who would become 'eardidates again were re-elected, the courthouse "gang"--and this term is used affectionately rather than meant to convey any disrespect is called upon to make little prepara tion for the beginning of the new ad ministration on Monday, January 6. With but few exceptions every officer of the county included in the court house crowd was re-elected. They will just keep right on in office. Lit tle house cleaning will be necessary. There is no rushing and worrying over getting things in shape to turn over to successors in office. Successors at the courthouse this time are few and far between. Having surrounded them selves with deputies who have been tried and found not wanting, there will be no occasion for changes to be made in the forces now employed-ex cepting, always, the cases where there was no re-election. The change prom ises to be made next Monday in such a manner that there will be no delay in the general business of the county. One of the most important changes will be in the office of the county clerk, when W. J. Babington will end his term as auditor and take over the office of County -Clerk from F. W. Kuphal, who finishes his second term in this office to become a member of the state legislature from Missoula county. Mr. Babington has announced the se lection of the following deputies: Rtaymond J. Cyr, H. L. Sadler, George Newlon and Jack Harrah. Mr. Babington will b, succeeded as auditor by K. L. P. Ector, whose office requires no deputies. Assessor Dan Currie suceeds hin self in office, and states that his pres ent deputy, Pat McLaughlin, will be re tained. The extra force he requires to make up the assessment rolls will not be employed until the last of February or early in March. Treasurer J. W. Hicklin is another of the county officers who was re-elected, and he has announced that there will be no change in his force of deputies, Edward McCarthy and J. W. Buford to remain as his assistants. Clerk of the Court Thomas P. C'on ion will also serve another term, and there will be no changes in his force. James Conlon, W. H., Perrior and C. F. Hayden will continue to assist in handling the increasing volume of dis trict court business. Sheriff W. L. Kelley was also the people's choice for sheriff again, and there will be no house cleaning in his office. Albert Marion will retain the under sheriffs star, Hugh Kelley will continue to act as court bailiff, and Deputies Kennedy. Rice and McCc!l will hold their respective positions. Deputy Johnson at Bonner will also be retained. Mrs. Edna twslevy reinhard suc ceeds Mrs. Pearl T. Marshall as county superintendeunt, the office carrying no deputyship. Mrs. Heinhard has been conferring with Mrs. Marshall for sev eral days, and will assume official charge next Monday with a good work ing knowledge of the many matters concerning M issoula county's schools. James Ronner as county surveyor and Charles -i. Marsh as coroner suc ceed themselves, neither having depu ties to appoint, while Thomas Hathe way, Jr., will begin his term as public administrator. Dan J. Heyfron will succeed E. C. Miulroney as county attorney. For the present Gilbert Heyfron will con tinue to act as deputy prosecutor. With the county commissioners there will also be a change. Chair man D. T. Curran gives up his seat at the table next Monday, and J. J. Flynn becomes the third member of the board, Frank Nelson and Dan McQuarrie holding over. The first business of the board will he to organize and elect a chairman. The only ollher change affecting Mis soula county is in the judgeship of de partment No 1 of the Fourth Judicial district. Judge F. C. Webster steps from the bench after many years of faithful ser\vic, to give A. L. Duncan his chair, In the Second district Judge R. Lee Me('olluch suceeeds himself. SUNDAY SCHOOL BOAIRID ELECTS. There was a nmeeting of the Daly Ad dition Sunday school board last even Ing, the session having been called by Rev. . J. . Bennett at the home of Mrs. P.. A.
