One Thousand Head Killed at
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
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 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.

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.

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.

WVoman's Suffrage carried in Valley
county by 61 votes, and in the state

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

was erected in record time. Much
of the building material was fur

and the site in the Cosner addition
was donated. New churches make

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

and we do not believe they will sell
their vote half so readily as the men.
