PrcM Association of Mont««» Called
«o Um Bitter Root— After
Mining Congress.
From Anscond* Standard. July 91.
Batte wa honored yesterday by the
presence of the officers of the Mon
tana Press Association in the persons
of Miles Romney, president, and
Walter Ai then, secretary. The officers
of the association met in conference
with some of the Butte newspaper
men in reference to the place of meet
ing for the association. Mr. Romney,
in-'behalf of the Bitter Root valley
newspaper men and the citizens, ex
tended a most cordial invitation to the
association to meet in that most de
lightful of all valleys, the charming
Bitter Root. Arrangements have been
made for the opening of the Ravalli
Hotel at Hamilton during the time the
press association is in Hamilton.
The invitation extended so cordially
by Mr. Romney was most acceptable
to the Butte papermen, and according
ly it was decided to issue the call to
meet in Hamilton. It is proposed to
assemble in Butte and go to Hamilton
from here on a special train. The
meeting will be held directly after the
mining congress. It is expected that
many of the newspaper men of the
state will be in Butte for that occasion
anyway*. Many of the delegates to
the mining congress doubtless will be
pleased to go over to the Bitter Root >
along with the newspaper men. After j
viewing the vast mineral resources of I
the Butte district, the delegates will j
not fail to be greatly impressed with
the charms of an agricultural valley
necond to none to be found anywhere.
The call as issued is as follows:
"The members of the Montana State
Press association are hereby called to
assemble in Butte on the sixth day of
September. From Butte the associa
tion will go to Hamilton, Mont., where
they will be entertained by the citizens
of that city and where they will dis
cuss ways and means for making the
association of practical benefit to the
newspaper fraternity of the state.
The journey to Hamilton will be made
by special train, which it is expected

It is through the bowels that the
body is c.eansëd of impurities. Con
stipation keeps these poisons in the
system, causing headache, dullness and
melancholia at first, then unsightly
eruptions and finally serious illness
unless a remedy is applied. DeWitt's
Little Early Risers prevent this trou
ble by stimulating the liver and pro
mote easy, healthy action of the bow
els. These little pills do not act vio
lently but by strengthening the bow
els enable them to perform their own
work. Never gripe or distress. Ham
