POLYTECHNIC OPENS OCT. 5 School for First Few Months Will Be Held in the Down Town Quarters. BUYS ABBOTT COLLEGE Popular Business School Has Been C Absorbed by Larger Institution.-- Seven Buildings Now Are Under Construction. Through the purchase of the Abbott Business college and the renting of t several large rooms and boarding > quarters in the heart of the city the 1 board of trustees of the Polytechnic institute is now able to announce that a its school will open promptly on Oc tober 5 as originally scheduled wheth er or not the new buildings being c erected for the school are finished on that date. The announcement will be ' greeted with joy by prospective stu dents, some of iwhom have, on ac- I count of the fact that the buildings of the school are not quite completed, t been led to believe thta the new 1 school would not open on the date originally set. Yesterday the purchase of the Ab bott Business college by the Poly technic was announced. The Abbott college is one of the big institutions of the city and its union with the Polytechnic cannot but add to its use fulness and widen its field. It will hereafter be known as the commer cial branch of the Polytechnic insti tute and Professor Chapman, who has had charge of the work of the busi ness department of the high school, will be in charge of the commercial department of the Polytechnic. Pro fessor Abbott, on account of failing health, is compelled to seek a warmer climate for the winter. His staff will be retained by the Polytechnic. The rooms of the college in the Odd Fellows' block will be used tempo rarily for the school, and additional class room has been obtained in the library and in the Y. M. C. A. building. After the school is in its new quar ters the rooms in the Odd Fellows' block will be used as the down town office of the school and will also be occupied by the night school of the college. In speaking of the work of the college and its plans for opening I on October 5, Director L. T. Eaton t said yesterday: "The trustees felt that while unfin ished accommodations could be pro vided at the grounds it would be far more satisfactory to care for the stu dents in the city for a few weeks. 'The acquisition of the Abbott Business college by the Polytechnic is an important step, for it not only pro- 1 vides a number of excellent recitation rooms for the school at the opening, but gives the quarters in the city 1 that the school needs for its down 1 town department and night school. "The work at the Polytechnic l grounds will be rushed to completion as fast as men and material can ac- 1 complish the erection of buildings. 1 At the present time seven buildings are in process of construction. The 1 Science ball is about ready for the a roof, the girls' dormitory is being plastered, and the foundations and i frames are being pushed on three dormitories for boys, the gymnasium and shops and heating plant. The contracts on all these buildings call for completion before November 1, so that the occupancy of the institute" plant cannot be delayed long beyond the opening. "The next two weeks will be busy ones for the directors in getting ev erything prepared for the opening. It is confidently expected that the en rollment the first week will reach near the 200 mark and that a much larger number will be enrolled on the date of the winter opening, Novem ber 2. "The Billings Polytechnic institute will open positively on the date set for the commencement of the school. October 5. The board of trustees is making every arrangement for the beginning. The slight delay in getting material for the institute buildings will not interfere in the least with the opening of the school on time. "Temporary auarters for the school have been provided and most excellent accommodations will be given the stu dents for the first few weeks while the finishing touches are put on the institute grounds and buildings. "A number of buildings 'will be se cured as temporary living quarters for the students, provision already Shaving been made for about 100 young people. The furnishines and equlp oment of the school will be used in -these temporary quarters until every 't thing is ready at the Institute grounds. All students from out of the city will he in the direct charge of the school authorities during their stay in the city, and the strict regulations for hours of study, discipline, etc., will be maintained. The class room work will be carried on jnust as thoroughly as if the school opened in permanent quarters." MARRIED IN NEBRASKA.

Brait- L tain of Prague. The teachers have been organized by the Bohemian gov ernment. Each teacher has several special ties, for instance, one has dairying and hop culture, and the scientific plan of fertilizing meadows; another F teaches the proper care of grapes and gives pracitcaly demonstrations and ol lectures on vegetable culture. All landowners, farmers, teachers and persons interested in agricultur- e al questions are entitled to receive 0 instructions. The tuition feet for each h course is $2.03, the student paying the h cost of lodging and similar expenses. IF To those unablet o pay, the govern- c' ment gives $1.15 each with a total th limit of $223 for all deserving pupils lk in each school. The women are y taught fruit preservation and marma lade making. The course includes in- it structions in irrigation, fertilization, is forestry, prevention and cure of plant IT diseases, the cultivation of vines, c0 keeping of poultry, bees, veterinary tl surgery and care of the home. b Speaking of the good results ob- ci tained by this scheme, the consul a says: 0o "The value of these courses is seen c, when the agriculture of Bohemia dur- C ing the last year is noted. In forestry b, alone the result has been astounding; li seven million trees have been planted ci and especial attention has been given Il to the forestration of bare slopes." tl THROUGH SERVICE i IS AGAIN RESUMED p Great Northern Train No. 44 Arrives , on Time and Via Billings & u Northern Tracks. 0 After being routed via the Northern s Pacific tracks and Helena for nearly a four weeks, the Great Northern t< through passenger trains are again n using the line of the Billings & fi Northern between this city and Great a Falls, No. 44 eastbound arriving in c Billings on schedule time yesterday evening and making the trip through the tunnel about ten miles west of this h city. No. 43 this morning will take the Billings & Northern tracks to I Great Falls. The lining of the tunnel caught fire four weeks ago tomorrow and since that time the through trains have been going via Helena, necessitating a delay of about three hours in their a running time. Early this week the first freight train was sent through the tunnel and the track is now in such a condition that it is safe for the heavier through trains. The work of replacing the lining of the tunnel b is about half completed and the en tire new lining will be in within the course of a few weeks. Residents of Broadview who came to the city yesterday evening on No. 44 expressed their satisfaction at seeing h the line again in use. Passenger ser vice between Billings and the Lake Basin country has been kept up by 1 means of stub trains, but the mile walk across the mountain has kept t many people, and especially the lady shoppers, from coming to Billings and their loss has been keenly felt by the merchants of this city. t -+-------- WILL OFFER CUP.

WELCOME ARCH IS DAMAGED BY WIND Severe Gale of Yesterday Afternoon Nearly Toppled Over Big Decoration. From Saturday's Daily. While yesterday's storm was at its height, the welcome arch which is being built as part of the decorative scheme of the city during the Dry Farming congress, received a severe test of its strength. The wind did not blow it down, but after the storm the arch was found to be damaged con siderably. It is bent as far as the guy wires would permit and will require stronger supports.

CORN TO YIELD EIGHTY BUSIELS D. W. Connick Has a Field Which Would Be Revelation to an Iowa Farmer. CROP A SUCCESS HERE Local Supply Does not Exceed at Present the Demand and Higher Prices Are Obtained Than in the Eastern States. From Sunday's Daily. The fact that the soil and climate of the Yellowstone valley are adapted to raising almost any kind of a crop except tropical fruits has been dem onstrated more than once, but per haps the most startling results which have been obtained from a crop which is not generally recognized as suc cessful this far west, are those ob tained by D. W. Connick of the Wil lowburn farm 'with his corn field this year. Corn is commonly supposed to grow in a "corn belt," the center of which is Iowa. Of course corn is grown al most everywhere, but Iowa and the central states are generally conceded the palm for record yields and the bulk of the corn grown for commer cial purposes is raised in the central and southern states. If all farmers of the Yellowstone valley are as suc cessful with their corn fields as Mr. Connick has been the fame of the corn belt is bound to perish or its boundary line will have to be enlarged suffi cient to include the Yellowstone val ley. Mr. Connick yesterday brought to the Chamber of Commerce some spec imens from his corn field which 'were beauties. He declares very positively that his field will yield 80 bushels to the acre and his statement was as positively denied by an Iowa tourist who happened to be in the building at the time. Mr. Connick is, however, willing to allow his statement to stand until his crop is harvested. He is very positive that he will realize 80 bushels to the acre from his field, and others who have this year raised corn say that they are anticipating equally as favorable yields. So good did Mr. Connick's corn look to the members of the special com mittee appointed to gather an exhibit for the state fair that they are once asked for the use of the ears, and ac cordingly the corn left the city yes terday for Helena. According to one of the successful ranchers of this valley corn raising has been carried on to a limited de gree ever since farming first began in Yellowstone valley. In all cases a very successful crop has 'been har vested but it has seemingly never occurred to any one to raise corn in large enough quantities to supply any more than his own personal needs. and as a result large quantities of corn are annually shipped into this city and sold to those who use it for feeding purposes. W. B. George is this year raising 60 acres of corn which give promise of an abundant harvest. Others are raising corn on a larger scale than 'usual, and corn promises to become one of the staple crops of the valley within the coming few years. At present the supply is so small that local corn demands higher prices than usual and all of it is purchased on the home market. The laurels of another state are also likely to fall before the Billings Chamber of Commerce, for yesterday two sunflowers the likes of which were placed on exhibit. The stalks, were placed on exhibit. Ahe stalks, which stand at either side of the en trane to the headquarters buildings, are each over 15 feet high. PRICES ON SHEEP CONTINUE HIGHER Sheepmen Who Predicted That Lambs Would Bring Good Prices Were Quite Right. From Saturday's Daily. The local quotations on lambs and ewes continue to be high and the sheepmen who, earlier in the sea son, predicted that good sheep would be scarce this year and would com mand better prices than usual are now out with the "I told you so" story. Local commission men says that but comparatively few sales are being made and that flockmasters who have sheep for sale are not let ting go of them at any but the high est prices. Recent deals place the current prices on lambs at from $5.65 to $5.75 per 100 and from $3.25 to $3.40 per head. Good breeding ewes are sell ing at $4.75 to $5.50 per 100 and there has been a marked advance in the price of wethers. which has been largely due to the influence of the eastern market.
