One thousand head of livestock, which includes one car of horses and mules and other loads of dairy stock were destroyed by federal and state veterinarians at Glendive, to save the rest of the state from infection. The train of livestock got as far as Miles City when it was turned back by Deputy State Veterinarian John son, in accordance with the governor's -proclamation. *The livestock was billed to Rosebud, Ilysham, Clyde Park, Big Timber and two points in Washington.. No symptoms of hoof and mouth disease were detected among the horses and mules, but the cattle were dyipg when they arrived at 'Glendivie on the vretiri trip. The= carcasses of the cattle will be buried and what remains be buried in quick lime and the yards will be thoroughly disinfected. Miles City shippers who had planned to ship livestock to Omaha Instead of Chicago during the tie-up of the Chicago yards on account of foot and mouth disease quarantine, have de cided not to ship for ten days, as it is believed any shipper who ships within that time is taking chances on having his stock quarantined and possibly killed.-Montana Daily Record. "The Virginian." The people of Malta werg given a splendid treat in the "Virginian" at the new Princess Theatre Monday evening. This play was by odds the best production ever staged in Malta, and was thoroughly enjoyed by the most critical in the audience. Regardless of the inclemency of the weather, a good crowd. turned out to see whether or not Mr Coburg would keep his promise to give us a good theatrical attraction in his new theatre and the most skeptical were fully convinced that Coburn can and will deliver the goods. The whole' cast was excellent. In fact each part was played by an artist. Charles Franklin as the "Virginian," was the typical, honest and genteel cow puncher, whose personality was simply irresistible and his captivat ing ways and winning smile, even when telling Trampas to "stand on your legs and tell 'em you lie," would have appeared engaging had it not been for the cold and dangerous glitter of his eyes, which simply got the "goat" of the bad man but won the heart of the "school ma'am." Clyde Watson as Steve, and Francis Owen as Honey Wiggins, also deserve special mention, and in several scenes brought down the house, and Blanche Tarver as the proud little school teacher played the part to perfection. Taken all in all the play was first class. Mr. Coburn, a real cowboy of many years' experience, kept things going by reciting "Yellowstone Pete's Only Daughter," which capped the climax and brought down the house. Naturalized Twelve Aliens. J edge Frank N. Utter was here on Monday and Tuesday and held a naturalization term of the District court. The following aliens were admitted to American citizenship: Henry J. Bugden of Chinook, a native of England; Harry Wester of Harlem, a native of Norway; Martin Kelfstad of Chinook, a native of Norway, Peter Olson of Brookside, a nativ e of Sweden; Lars E. Prestegaard of Wagner, a native of Norway; Mathis Farvolden of Lloyd, a native of Norway; John Estrevaag of Dodson, a native of Norway; Einer Knutson of. Chinook, a native of Norway; Erling Thorson of Harlem, a native of Norway; E. Johan Jacobson of Riedel, a native of Norway; Patrick }'ahy, of Turner, a native of Ireland. -Chlnook.Oplilon.

Warning is hereby given that no parties. will be allowed to. settle dr perform any act of settlement on these lands prior to time given above (Nov. 30), or who are now occupying any part of said lands, except those who have valid subsisting settlement rights, initiated prior to withdrawal from settlement and since maintained. Others will be regarded as trespassers. However, there is nothing to prevent person from going upon or over the lands to examine them with a view toward settling there-on. It is per fectly lawful to so examine them. Persons having prior settlement rights, as above defined, will be allowed to make entry in conformity with existing laws. Intending settlers were also warned to ascertain the status of surveyed land and get all information available as to the un. surveyed land by inquiry at the local office before making settlement there on. Below is given the list of lands. Malta Survey and Milk River Project, Mont. Montana Principal Meridian. T. 32 N., R. 83 E., NNWM Sec. 26; N% NE% Sec. 27; SER NERi Sec. 28.

The performance of "Quo Vadis" by the Kline-Cines Film Co. at the Orpheum last evening was of such an exceptionally fine character that it deserves special mention. The spec tacle covered three acts and eight scenes; and was characterized by gorgeous scenery, costumes and a magnificient setting, and the acting was superb. The Orpheum was packed with a very appreciative audience, every available seat being taken. Manager Wilmert gave the audience an unexpected treat by having the Mozart String Orchestra with live instruments to render appropriate and beautiful music between acts and at the conclusion of the performance. Such productions are exceedingly popular in Malta. A Splendid War Drama in two parts at the Princess to-night. No advance in the regular prices, :0 and 20 cents. Our sympathy, boys! Fashion has decreed that the flimsy gowns that left little to the imagination must go, and that the petticoat is to be estored. School Notes. As the total enrollment to date is 214 it is safe to say that 190 children are members of our schools. At least 185 are in attendance each day. The cold weather has had little effect upon attendance as yet. New pupils during the past week are Ruth and Grace Raymond, Lila Stonesifer, Ella Dagfinrud and Samuel North. Walter Clark reentered school on Monday after a week's vacation. The boys of the upper grades have organized a club for the study of practical problems. Farming, wood work, current history and parliamen tary procedure will be among the topics discussed and studied. The Parents' and Teaheers-ueeting at the school house last Saturday evening was excellently attended. Owing to unforeseen circumstances several who were scheduled to appear on the program failed to appear. In fact Rev. Stine was the only person who was on hand. And it is only just to say that this single address was well worth the effort required for attendance. Through the kindness of a number of the ladies of the commu nity an excellent lunch was served after the program closed. Everyone was in a social mood so that laughter and song echoed through the school. rooms for a merry hour and a half. The next meeting of this sort will not be held until January. It is expected that sometime during the second week of December Mrs. Dr. Reynolds and Mrs. Holliday of Missoula will be in Malta under the auspices of the school. Mrs. Reynolds Is a reader of exceptional ability, while Mrs. Holiday is a fine pianist. These ladies are sent out by the State University. Their entertainment will be easily the equal of any high-priced lyceum entertainment. 'Watch the paper next week for the time, the place and the price. "Taking good teeth-good health as my motto, I promise to care for my teeth daily" is the text of the pledge card which Miss Ayer is circulating among her 50 odd pupils. A small package of dental cream accompanies the pledge card and the children are instructed in the use of it. A prize of a large package of paste is to be awarded to the child who writes the best essay on "Good Teeth." This is a good thing and every parent, whose children are in Miss Ayer's room, is urged to encourage the chil dien in forming the tooth brush habit. Got the Same Bird. While mowing hay last June,! Abe Bruger, a Cathcart, Wash., rancher, surprised a mother pheasant and her brood in the tall grass. One of the ilock was overtaken by the mower, which amnputated both (f its legs. It escaped to an alder thicket. While hunting recently Bruger winged a pheasant. When lie recovered the bird both of its legs were missing, a fact which recalled the accident of the early summer. The bird had become full grown, was in perfect condition, plump, and in fact, larger than the average of this year's birds taken in the locality. The wounds had completely healed and nature, in the process of healing, had devel oped a substitute for claws in the form of hard scales at the extremoities. --Ex. Additional Locals. Willard Cavanaugh, the little son ofJohn Cavanaugh, who has been on thisick list for the past week is improving rapidly. Dr. Blankenhorr and John Shady left this morning for 'the Missouri river country where they will enjoy themselves for a few days hunting aIe friends of Miss Do Tressler ,vUI be sorry to learn that she is it*eying from a badly injured knee b has been confined to 'her home !<,onver two weeks. imon Pepin, the well-known cattle king and capitalist, died in St. Paul on 'the 8th of November, and his remains were shipped to Hlavre, where burial was made. Clarence Brockway sent a letter to England on Monday which was addressed, "Harry Argent, i1 insdale, Pollard's Hill, Norbury, Surrey, England." That surely ought to reach Harry. J. T. Hanson of this city was taken to Glasgow last Saturday where he underwent an operation for appendi citis. He was accompanied by Mrs. Hanson, and at last accounts he was improving. Mrs. Wim. Paquin, residing about 17 miles northeast of Malta was conveyed to the hospital at Glasgow last week by i)r. Blankenhorn where she underwent an operation for gall stones. Last Sunday night while Shady's auto livery was spinning along between Zortman and Malta, and when near the Coburn ranch at Brookside the intense cold caused thleuadliators to freeze up and he was compelled to abandon the machine. Luckily Wm. Culberts was enroitte to Malta and the driver was brought to town. George Barrett. rancher, living about five miles west of Hlavre, was shot and killed by Geo. Ickelheimer, a near neighbor of Barrett the result of a quarrel which took place between the two men on the road near their homes. There was a special meeting of the town council held up at Chinook recently and it was voted to have an ordinance drawni up to provide for closing the saloons on week days between 1.80 a.m. and 7.00 a m., and from 1.30 Sunday morning until 12 o'clock noon on Sunday. Tom Facey, who installed a moving picture show at Saco a short time ago has sold out to Verni Vaupel, who will continue to run the house. We have not been informed as to what Mr. F: cey's next move will be, but it is understood he will start another showhouse somewhere along the line. A break-down at the power plant in Glasgow one night last week put the city in darkness, and lanterns, candles, etc., were called into service. Manager Ilisshell of the Orpheum theatre ran his show as if nothing had happened, and with the assistance of Contractor Bell, A. J. Mosby, and the Moore Telephone Co. a power plant was rigged up in front of the theatre. The engine on Mr. Bell's concrete-mixer was then attached to an electric motor which furnished the power. WVoman's Suffrage carried in Valley county by 61 votes, and in the state by 3,590 votes. The farm loan measure and suffrage were the only initiative-referendum measures that were passed by the state. Montana has the unique distinction of being the only state where suffrage was granted the first time asked for through the initiative. In other states which now have equal suffrage, the measure was put tip several times before being granted. Evidently Montaunahas a better educated body of men who recognize the intelligence of their women. Malta will soon have a Congrega tional church of which she may be proud. The new building was started last Thursday and will he a commo dious little edifice. Some of the carpenters of the city and several members of the church donated a day's work so that the outside shell was erected in record time. Much of the building material was fur nished by local merchants at cost, and the site in the Cosner addition was donated. New churches make for progress in any community, and Malta will be more than glad to welcome this one. Woman suffrage has carried in Montana, and now we will soon be able to see whether politics in the state will be more "rotten" than under the control of men. It will not be necessary for women to neglect their homes in order to vote, and we do not believe they will sell their vote half so readily as the men. At the same time with the privilege of the ballot women have the power of the ballot as well as the "personal influence" to use for the protection of the home, and we'll take our chances every time with the voting women In preference to the large voting element among the men who have no other ambition in the use of thier ballot than the securing of a few drinks or a few dollars.--Valley County News.

The report of the dinner and supper servcd by ft. Mary's Guild on elec tion day was inadvertently omitted from last weeks' issue, but the memory of the excellent repast will long remain in the minds of the Iiungry voters. The dining-room was crowded both noon and evening, and prompt service was the rule. A beautiful hand-made centerpiece was donated by Miss Marion Survant, and the fortunate winner was A. S. Hanscom. The proceeds cleared by the Guild were over $110, and the success of the venture were largely due to thme untiring efforts of the president, Mrs. G. L. Partridge, and her efticient co-workers. The Congregational Ladies' Aid Society held a very successful bazaar and supper on Front street last Thursday evening. The display of fancy-work and useful household adjuncts was unusually large, and waswell patronized. The candy booth, fortune-telling and grab-bag were also very popular, as was the chicken supper table which was crowded all evening. The ladies of the Aid were deserving of success on account of the hard work put in during the past half-year toward their bazaar. It is intended thoaut alm election dinner will be served on Februtry 2d, when county division is voted on, and will undoubtedly be well patronized.
