Every Rancher and His Entire Family is invited by the Havre
People to Come to This City on Saturday. June 6th
"Market Day.' Entertainmernt and Prizes for
Visitors and Bargain Sales in all Lines

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

to the entbrtainment of visitors on
that day; committees. have been ap

the game was a long running catch

McClosky and Kerr. The opposing

the battery.

a ball to the winning team.

For many days there seems to have
been a systematic round of knocking
against Havre in rogue among the
newspapers of Great Falls and Helena
and the wildest reports have been giv
en publicity. All of this has been to
the great detriment of Havre. It has
become so rank that the Havre Indus
trial has filed the following statement
with the Great Falls Tribune:
Havre, Mont., May 12, 1908.
Editor Tribune:
The reports which have been pub
lished in The Tribune of the small
pox situation in Havre are grossly
exaggerated. The facts, as secured
from Health Officer Dr. J. S. Almas,.
are as follows:
Six houses in Havre quarantined,
also three houses outside the city
limits. Twenty-four cases in all.
No new cases since the eighth instant

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. "
