Entertainmernt and Prizes for Visitors and Bargain Sales in all Lines of Goods by the Merchants COME AND LET US GET ACQUAINTED ________________________________________________ Market Day-Does not the words set many old memories at work? We are sure they will in the minds of a'l those of our readers who are n ar ing the age of fifty. They will re call those days in the long ago when the periodical trip to town was made. Well, it were not possible in this day and age to live again as was done in those old days, but the business men of the city of Havre acting through their official organization, yave de cided to go out of their way in an endeavor to offer some inducements to the ranchers of Chouteau county to make the trip to our fair city. To become better acquainted with each other-to show to the people of this county that when we say that this city is the foremost in Northern Mon tana; that she leads in business and social affairs-is not an empty and meaningless boast. To do these very things the Industrial association have decided to set aside one day in each month-the first Saturday - to be known as "Market Day." The first "Market Day" will be held on Jdne 6th; the sceond will be held on Friday, July 3rd, as the Fourth comes on Saturday. But about the first -"Market Day" Havre will do her best, the professional and business men have raised a fund to be devoted to the entbrtainment of visitors on that day; committees. have been ap pointed to provide for the comfort of NOTES OF THE SHOP Wm. Cance, formerly chief store house clerk, has been appointed store keeper in place of A. H. Stadum, who died recently. A. C. Deverell will be here some time this week on an inspection trip. Four machinists, one blacksmith and six helpers were laid off last week. The orders also took off one gang foreman A. L. Burke. Jos. Hur ley will have charge of both floor gangs until further notice. Several of the 1900 clays engines are now arriving They will be put in service principally on the moun tainous road. They are all the Mallett type, 12 wheelers, articulating comnlounds, but larger than the 1800 class. The shop men have organized a good ball team and elected A. L. Burke manager and H. Dunsforth cap tain. The line-up is as follows: Dunsforth, c., Wright, p., Daily, p., Burk, 1st b., Long, 1st. b., Sandberg, 2nd b., Kerr, 3rd b., Prebble 3rd b., McClosky, ss., Oglesby, 1. f., Peter son, r. f., Prebble, c. f., A game was played Saturday after noon with the general office clerks; score-Shop 39; clerks, 5. Sunday they crossed bats with a picked nihie from the city. Score 18 for the Shop team and 14 for the picked nine. It was a fair game af ter the third inning. The features of the game was a long running catch of line fly by Oglesby; 2 home runs by Burke and errorless fielding by McClosky and Kerr. The opposing team used poor team work, every man for himself and poor support to the battery. The Beckstead Drug Co. donated a ball to the winning team. COLDS THAT HANG ON.

Following is quoted, from the Ar my and Navy Journal of May 9th,'08. "Very effectively does General Mac- , Arthur expose the hypocrisy that was not wholly dissociated from the pass age of the anti-canteen law when he says: 'It always has seemed odd to me that when the bill abolishing the sale of intoxicants at army posts and soldiers' homeswas passed, other gov ernment reservations were not includ ed in this bill. If it is unseemly for beer to be sold at army posts, why should it not be just as bad for whis key to be dispensed at Washington. The principle is the same, it seems to me odd, indeed, but not surprising, for consistency is not to be expected in those who mistake zeal for intelli gence, noise for argument, and the dreams of visionaries for attested re sults. " Lieut. F. A. Barker, recently grad uated from the Military Academy at West Point has been assigned to the 2nd. Infantry and will soon join the command. At a meeting of the ''Francis W. Mansfield Camp No. 3, Spanish War Vetrans" at the post on Monday eve ning, steps were taken to hold Mem orial services at the post cemetry on Decoration day, also to suitably dec orate the graves of departed com rades. Sargent Brockshing, chaplain of the camp will officiate at the serv ices. There are many improvements being made at the post under the direction of Lieut. G. W. Edgerly, one of the most capable and energetic Quarter masters in the Army. All the officers quarters, as well as the barracks are receiving a coat of paint and kalso mine. The Post hospital is being thoroughly overhauled. In addition there are many improvements contem plated, such as planting trees, con-' structing a cement sidewalk in front of the barracks, installing a concrete reservoir in place of the watertank which recently burned down, etc. It is the intention to make old Fort Assinniboine a place of delight to the eye and spirit. It is rumored that Lieut. Edgerly will be designated as constructing quartermaster by the War Department to take charge of the extensive construction work when the post is enlarged ot accomodate a brigade this summer. Captain Geo. D. Freeman, recently promoted from the 21st Infantry, will soon arrive to take command of Co. 'K'." The Captain was formerly sta tioned at Fort Logan, Colorado.

Mitchell has been or dered to join his company at the post upon arrival at San'Francisco.
