The Ring is Here on Exhibition in Lou Lucke's -Window and the Start in the Heirald's Voting ,Contest is Most Auspicious. TE STONE MOUNTEO IN TIFFINY SETTING IS VALUED AT $2751 The Herald's diamond ring voting contest, has ardused the interest of a number of the young ladies of the county and, as will be seen below -some effort has already. been made by'them to make aggood Mtart. From no*. on.~the irnterest 'will doubtless increase with each succeed ingg week. We experienced considerable. delay iii eecuring the ring we had annouc e. we would give away, and then did not-' get a $250.00. stone, but we got so. ething better. It came about in this' way: Mr. F. B. Churchill wag authorized to secure the ring and he ordered out.,,from Chicago a . num- ber of stones on examination; These, to the number of four, arrived last Thursday, but none came up to the requirements as the largest in the lot could be bought for $200.00. A telte graphic order was sent immediately and another consignmet was received in response. From these we have se lected a most handsome stone to cost $275. That is $25 more than we ad vertised last week, but we knlow that all will agree with us that it is worth the extra money. Mr. F. B. Churchill, having severed his connection with the Churchill Jew elry Co., has mounted the ring on a MISS MARGARET MORGAN, Havre.. MISS BEULAH WIENETT, Havre .

MATTERS OF INTEREST The work of organizing the Upper Milk River Water Users' association which shall hav'e charge of the set tlers' side of the governmient irriga tion work to be inaugerated soon in the vicinity Chinook and Harlem 'has been. started. Mr. C. C. Babb, engineer in charge of the government work on the Milk River I~rgect was inf Chinook the first of last week to see about the contract between the ditch owners in the vi cinity of Chinook and Harlem.: By the terms .of the proposed con tract, all. water. users under propos ed St. Mary's-Milk Diver project who are ditch owners.in the vicinity of Chinook and Harlem -'vill limit their prior water rights to the present ca pacity fo their ditches as measured by the hydrohgraphic survey, in case the St. Mary's canal is not built . The ditch owners to have a credit of $12.50 per acre on the land now ir rigated by them 'and as determined by the reclamation department and spec ified in the contract for their ditch es and prior watei' rights, condition ed upon the cbnstruction of the St. Mary's canal. Any appropriation received through congress for the relief of the water users of the. Milk River injuriously affected by the recent decision in the Indian water right suit to be' applied to the cost of the St. Mary's can al and as an off het for the credit of $12.50 per acre of the land her.tofors irrigated. All credits to the ditch owners are to be distributed to the owners of the ditches in proportion to stock owner ship and without reference to individ ual acreage.. This contract has been approved by the reclamation service and the people all along the line have signified their willingness to sign the contract. By telegram from Washington Mr. Babb is requested to have the Upper Milk River Water Users' association organ ized. The organization s expected to build and manage the canals between Yan tic and Dodson. This request is very suggestive of the attitude of the of fice at Washington toward an early completion of the St. Mray's-Milk Ri ver systems. The contract will obviate the neces sity for the expensive litigation of the water rights to Milk river and its tri butaries and will protect the wat~r users under the Dodson canals fnom future increases by the Upper Water Users association, and will insure the co-operation of all the land owners in the former and thereby diminish the proportionate cost of the St. Mary waters. Mir. Babl4holds out considerable en couragement in. favor of the Chain Lakes reservoir, located , 15 miles north of Havre. The plans and specifications for th? first fvie miles of the main' division canal ahd dam at Dodson have been prepared and forwarded to Washing ton for fhe final approval of the head of the department. From information which comes from Washington it is learned that these plans will shortly be approved, and calls fdr bids fLr this portion of the work will thEn be made. The actual commencement o the work may be looked for with'n the next thirty days. iBRYAN CLUB MEETS THURSDAY A special meeting of the Havi Bryan club will be held tomorrm (Thursday) evening in the old city hall at S p. m.
