r.: ~MISSOULA, MONTANA, SUNDIAY MORNING, ;JA1NUA4RY 4, 1914. FLITTING-TIME Dream now, snow-bound dwellers in the north, Dream of sapphire, sun-lit, southern seas, Dream of languorous, faintly fragrant breeze, Luring thus your instant setting forth, ; Care-free birds of passage flitting forth,' Far away from cold austerity, Seeking gracious tropic luxury, Leaving bold ambition in the north. Dream of palm and fern in massive green, Lotus flower and oranlge blosssom pale. .Dream of dalliance in shadowy vale, Languid stream and moonlight's mirrored sheen; Far removed from biting coldl and keels, Safely hid from storm wind wildly whirled: Then thank God for this, His varied world, Made so rich with joys to choose between. -Mabel Kinney Hall. Park Addition Club. Members of the Park Addition club and the family of each, making a. happy company of 65, watched the ad vent of the New Year Wednesday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. 4Frank Taylor. There was a program 'including a , piano solo, "Spinning Song," by Mrs. G. E. Lucas; a road ing, "The Constellation," by Mrs. A. 1I. Kennedy; a. piano duct, "Poet and Peasant," by Misses Alice Boles and ida Stennett; a vocal solo, "Absent," ,'by Miss Cora Quast, who responded to an encore with "Sad Sweet End of Day;" a vocal duel, "The Cousins," sung most effectively by Mrs. Sten netl and Mrs. (;ray inl costume; read ing, "New Year's Resolutions for the Park Addition Chlb" by Mrs. Veeder. In this Mrs. Veeder touched upon the fads and foibles of each nmember of the club in clever fashion. Then fol lowed a game, "It Pays to Advertise," played by old and young together in which each one of the 65 players drew 'a prize of greater or less value. An appetizing supper was served and mu Eical numbers rendered during the midnight hour. Beth Hershey Hostess. Miss Beth Hershey was hostess at dinnler Tuesday afternoon, her guests being Misses Lulu Wright, Irene Mur ray, Evelyn Thomas, Alberta, Stone, Gladys Brewer and F'lorepce Lebkich er. Skating before dinner and moving picture theaters after dinner afforded entertainment for the young ladies. At the Swearingen Home. Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Swearingen en tertained at their home un South Fifth street east Wednesday night until the early hours of the new year. Their guests were Mr. annd Mrs. ])wight Hughes, Mr. and Mrs. S. H. lRussell, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer ('arter. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hollister, Miss I,.luise ITollister, Miss Geraldine ()'IHra of Hlamnilton and thefir own sons and daughters. A variety of lively gaines were played and there was an old 'fashioned corn husking bee. \'here Mr. Swetringen found corn to, hllusk If You Are Told That Orton Bros.' piano store in Missoula is not entitled to local patronage be cause it is not a permanent local institution, because it does not pay taxes in the city and county to the same proportion as do its competing piano dealers, that its profits on business done are not spent in Missoulah, ,r that those who reap the bene fits from its sales spend the money so earned in Butte. Don't You Believe It. Orton Bros.' Piano Store Is a Permanent Local Establishment It was opened here because Orton Bros., with headquarters in Butte, as Mon tana's oldest and most reliable piano dealers, had confidence in the city of Mis soula and established a piano store in Missoula for the game reason as persuades other merchants to enter this business yield. As to taxes the local branch of the Orton Bros.' piano concern is required by law to pay taxes on every bit of property in the store at the time of taxation and at the same rate of levy as other piano merchants. The employes of the local branch of Orton Bros.' piano concern spend their wages in the maintenance of Missoula homes. Orton Bros.'s piano store is in Missoula to remain as long as the piano business of the city justifies its existence. No matter what anyone tells you to the con trary, we assert that we pay as much taxes in Missoula county as is required by law of any concern. The larger share of the money we collect on piano sales remains here-a.s does any piano concern we must send the first cost of the instrument to the factory which made it. But Orton Bros.' store in Missoula is a permanent local concern and is entitled to the same treatment as is accorded any merchant in the city, regardless of whether his history dates from this city or from some other. We are here to stay and we believe Orton Bros.' are a credit to Missoula. A piano firm which has years of business integrity behind it is a pride to any city. Orton Bros. have a reputation for fair treatment of customers. The pianos sold by Or ton Bros. are of those makes which rank first in the world's piano products. We have the pianos on our floors an,d the prices on them are as fair as ever were made. We are entitled to local patronage and we will go out of our way to merit it, but we do not like to have our competitors in business make statements that we are not a local concern, etc., as they have for some time been doing, that are intended to cast discredit upon ourselves. WE ARE A PERMANENT LOCAL CONCERN-and we intepd to remain one, if fair treatment, honest prices and instruments worthy of their prices will accomplish our desires, and we believe they will. The public is fair and will buy where quality is to be found at reasonable prices and it will always be so found at ORTON BROTHERS 118 East Cedar Street. M isseula, MoItana MISS BEATRICE ROTHENBERG Beautiful little daunhter of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Rothenberg, whose fourth birthday was the occasion of a pretty celebration last Thursday afternoon. remains IL mystery still.

At the close of the afterlolon, after the game was over, Mrs. Harrington summoned the II THE BATTLE FOR -IGHT I IIE D0 I L.E "Montana Must Win!" Is the work ing motto of the patriotic leaders In the campaign for equal suffrage which is now being organized on. definite lines throughout the state. A meet ing of the eight precinct chairmen for Missoula was held Friday afternoon at the home of Miss Jeannette Rankin and preliminary steps taken toward the starting point, from which the march will be made to the polli next November. Miss Rankin has resigned her post as field secretary of the National Suffrage assuciation, in order to de vote her entire time to the camnpaign in Montana. She will go this week to open state headquarters at Butte and then travel through the state, or ganizing counties and making public addresses. Miss Rankin states that the northeastern part of Montana is very strong, although there is already something started in each county of the state. There is to be a chairman elected for each of the 40 voting pre cinets in Missoula county to co-oper ate with the eight precinct chairmen in Missoula. It is estlmated that $10,000 will be needed to carry through the campaign in the etate, but since $1.500 was raised in Butte and Missoula in one week only a short time ago to be devoted to equal I suffrage propaganda, the leaders feel I hopeful that purse strings will be still i further loosened. A number of the 1 distinguished leaders are giving their services upon their own expense. Gen eral Rosalie Jones has promised to t come to Montana next July at her own expense and remain in the field : as long as she can be used effective ly here. Mr. and Mrs. James Leec Laidlaw have also promised to iome i from their home in New York next t ladies to a long and beautifully ap- t pointed table where they were seated 1i for a sumptuous dinner.
