VOLUME Xll. HAMILTON, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1902. NUMBER 47 Impressions of the Newspapermen Who Met in Hamilton Last Week The following editorials and ex cerpts from special articles selected •t random from the newspapers of the state will serve to give an idea of the impressions of the members of the Montana Press association, who held their annual meeting in- Hamil ton last week. The association, by unanimous vote, also ordered that an address, penned by two of the clever est reporters in Batte, descriptive of the scenic beauties, resources, etc. of Bitter Boot be published in all the newspapers of the state. One para graph of this article in a plain state ment of facts effectually punctures the "spotted fever" bugaboo. ThiB article will be reproduced in o nr next issue. A Most Cordial Reception. The big daily papers of the state every day during the meeting publish ed lengthy accounts of the "doings of the gang" interspersed with glowing accounts of the hospitality of the peo ple and replete with descriptions of the scenic beauty and remarkable fer tility of this favored valley. Several papers had their staff, artists on the ground, and the people of the entire northwest have grown familiar with Bitter Root's attractions through the medium of the copious illustrations that have been published. The fol lowing excerpt appearing in Monday's Anaconda Sta ndard is a sample show ing how the visitors were impressed: "The members of the press will car ry with them from this beautiful city of happy homes and splendid people remembrances of the most hospitable entertainment the association has re ceived at the hands of any community since its organization.

The cheering music of the band, a most creditable organization of musicians; the grand entry into the Ravalli hotel were manifestations of the cordiality and good will that have characterized every move of the citizens of Hamilton and all combined to impress most fa vorably the press association and its friends who so fortunately received the invitation to come to this city and participate of the hospitality." Flowers, Fruit and Fertility. From the Boulder Age. The Bitter Root valley is famous for its'beauty and fertility, and is entitled to all the praise it gets—a broad valley with good soil, well watered, and a cli mate milder than elsewhere in the state. Grain shocked or stacked indi cates a big yield; rail fences and bend ing apple trees remind one of "back east," To the west is a magnificent range of mountains, rugged in outline, snow always in sight, the range broken by deep gorges from which come streams that are turned to beneficial use. Hamilton is certainly one of the most attractive little cities in the state; well situated, well built, with modern improvements and a busy people. The lumbering industry has been a leading one but as that eventually disappears the increasing importance of agricul ture and horticulture will more than compensate. It appears that this is a favored locality for flowers. As the excursionists alighted from the train a committee of little girls handed them great bunches of blossoms. The fruit of this locality is a revela tion to those from other and less fa vored portions of the state and to east ern visitors. Apples grow to perfec tion and the trees commence bearing early; so heavily laden are they that limbs must be propped or they are broken down. In the store window of the A. C. M. Co. was a beautiful dis play of apples and grain. At the office of the Ravalli County Republican there was an exhibit of apples of many kinds, from the choicest crab-apples to those of other varieties as large as the hands could span. And there is this for the Bitter Root apples and they doubtless surpass any other in the world; good size, beautiful color, firm, crisp and juicy, and free from defects and worms. The orchards loaded with apples are indeed a beautiful sight. In the exhibit in the Republican office also were pears and plums, and'an ex cellent showing of vegetables and grain, altogether reminding one of a county fair, but better wheat than the Dakotas, better oats than Kansas or Nebraska, better apples than Missouri, Michigan or New York. The Montana Press Meeting. From Butte Inter Mountain. The meeting of the Montana Press association at Hamilton was perhaps the most successful in its history. It was made up of representative news paper men of the state who went there for a good time and for business. Thanks, first to the people of Hamil ton, and, second, to themselves, they had both. The association was placed on a good working basis, and through the work of several committees ap pointed by President Romney, there is every prospect that much will be accomplished between this time and the next meeting which will be to the substantial advantage of the newspa pers of the state. Working in har mony the newspapers can do much thst will be of mutual benefit, and this is a part of the good that will un doubtedly result from the recent meet ing. The next meeting will be held in Helena in January, and the work that has been outlined should be pushed vigorously and the present interest in the association kept alive. I I I I The "Old Hoss" Will Come Again. From Deer Lodge Silver State. The Silver State editor returned last night from Hamilton where he at tended the annual meeting of the Mon tana Press association. The people of Hamilton entertained the press gang most royally and gave them the best time in the history Of that organiza tion. The pencil-pushers were also handsomely entertained at Missoula yesterday on their arrival in that city homeward bound. We have neither time nor space to tell our readers about it this week, but will do so in our next issue. We saw enough of the Bitter Root valley to warrant us in believing it will soon beconje one of the greatest fruit-producing sections in the west. On the big Daly ranch alone there will this fall be shipped at least a big train load of large and delicious apples, while there are hundreds of other bear ing orchards all the way from Mis soula to way beyond Hamilton. Ira Cole Dropped Into Poetry. From Forsyth Times. The editor and his wife returned yesterday from their trip to Hamilton where they attended the annual meet ing of the Montana State Press asso ciation. In another column of this paper we express in verse a faint idea of the joys experienced in the beauti ful Bitter Root valley—by far the fair est of all the garden spots in this wide, wide world. Next week we shall have more to say of this trip, the memory of which shall last when our hair is silvered and our forms are bent with the cares of old age. No blessings of the gods can be bountiful enough for our temporary hosts—for they were god-like in their kindness. TO OUR GKNBROUS llOSTS. [Selected from the paper read by Ira Cole at the Montana "täte Press association,] O, Bitter Boot, white-starred with bloom, Where flowers nestle, shy and sweet. Where all your waving grasses laugh And part before our eager feet— Here all of us would ever dwell. Letting the mad old world rush by, And just be glad of wind and sun, Of noble hills and brooding sky ! But often in our daily work. We'll dream of your sweet-verdured lanes, And feel once more soft breezes soothe Our aching breasts and weary braius. Ever before life's busy din. Above the clink of yellow gold, We' 11 hear your wild birds' ringing call, And catch the scent of leaf-strewn mold. The grass will kiss our fevered cheek, Your trees will drop their scented rain, We'U ne'er forget the kindntss shown— We'll wish ourselves back here again. A Notable Session. From Anaconda Standard. That the meeting of the Montana JP ress association this week in the pretty city of Hamilton was productive of good is admitted on all sides. In the first place it brought into close communion newspaper editors and re porters from the four quarters of the state under the most cheering aus pices. No gentler sky ever smiled upon a gathering of men and women in Western Montana; no grander or more spontaneous outpouring of unre strained hospitality than that which the citizens of Hamilton and Missoula and of all Western Montana bestowed upon the visitors is of record in the archives of the press association; an atmosphere of good will rested upon the scene; nature in her most elabor ate dress opened wide her arms and embraced the visitors and bade them welcome ; the agents and emissaries from the realms of peace and happi ness conspired with the entertainment committee, and the effect was to pro duce a spirit of cordial fraternalisin. Ere this the several members who participated in the annual event are at their respective posts of duty, and now that they are at work again the thous sands of readers in this state and other states where Montana newspapers find a welcome will read of the beauties of the Bitter Root valley and the whole soul<*d cordiality of its splendid citi zens. Much has already been written on these themes, but there is more to be said. It is hoped that what may be said respecting the attitude of the railroad people towards Hamilton will have a tendency to create a more fa vorable condition so as to give Hamil- | ton improved railway advantages. As to the accomplishments of the meeting in a business way, much will depend upon the course that the asso ciation shall pursue at its meeting next January in Helena during the session ot the legislature. It was de cided at the meeting just closed to enter the legislative lobby and en deavor to have passed certain laws whose object shall be to regulate some of the things which now enter into the business in the nature of annoyances. However, speaking in a general way, the meeting of the press association in Hamilton was a success. Fair Play for Hamilton. From Butte Inter Mountain. The people of Hamilton, where the Montana Press association was splendidly entertained, need but one thing to make them blest, and that is better railroad accommodations. The present facilities for getting in and out of the pretty little town are shame fully inadequate. It undoubtedly would be to interest of the railroad company to mi, rove these facilities. The wonderful country around Hamtl ton, rich in agricultural and horticul tural resources, is capable of still higher development, but this will be greatly retarded unless the railroad meets the situation and provides such means for the marketing of the pro ducts of the Bitter Root valley as the importance of that fertile region de mands. The enterprise of the late Marcus Daly has done much for the develop ment ot this garden spot, but much of his work goes for naught unless the farmers and fruit growers have the co operation of the railroad. The region around Hamilton should not be handicapped, and since the matter has been brought so forcibly before the newspapers of the state by reason of the recent meeting there of the Press association, they should make it their business to demand for Hamilton such railroad tacilities as the town and the rich country around it manifestly require. Beaverhead's Tribute. From Dillon Tribune. The Dillon members of the Montana press gang returned home well pleased with, their trip to Hamilton and Mis soula. In no section of the state has the press association ever been more warmly and enthusiastically received or been shown more courtesies. Every minute of the time the press people were in the Bitter Root country was filled w<th pleasure, and it was with reluctance that they tore themselves away from their hospitable hosts. The people of Hamilton not only know unsiumsw ENGINEER'S 0VERALL8 •am nusoisee, o*w how 1o raise fruit and beautify their homes but they excel as entertainers. Old members of the association de clare that the Hamilton peop.e gave the pencil-pushers the best time in the history of the organization. Abund ant opportunity was given to see the Bitter Root valley at its best. The number and extent of the orchards was a wonder to those who reside on this side of the range, and in a short time that valley will be ranked as the greatest fruit-producing region in the Rocky Mountains. The only thing lacking to make the people supremely happy and contented is better railroad facilities. At jresent the residents have to put up with one accommoda tion train a day which sometimes con sumes seven or eight hours.in making the run to Missoula, orly a two hours' run for a passenger train. The daily press has told all about the Hamilton meeting, about the novel excursion to the logging camp, the excellent dinner served by the lumberjacks chef, the visits to the great Daly ranch and the big modern saw mill; the ball and the banquet and the drive about Missoula and the banquet given by the people of the "garden city." The press gang of Montana will never forget their trip to Montana's garden spot They said they would turn over the keys of the city to us and they kept their promise. May the people of the Bitter Root live long and prosper in their | beautiful country, Pleased With Montana. Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Price, of Scran ton, Pa., who came to Missoula with the State Press association from Ham ilton Tuesday, continued on an ex tended western tour to the Pacific coast yesterday. Mr. Price is the editor of a thrifty trade journal at Scranton. He came to Butte for the Mining Congress, and was prevailed upon to take the jaunt with his pro fessional brothers through the Bitter Root. The trip, he describes, was a revelation of wonders he had never conceived existed in Montana, and will furnish him with food for describing the west with his return home that will be equally as surprising to his readers.—Missoulian.

Greatest European Authority on Skin Diseases, Says Its a Germ. The old idea was that dandruff is scales of skin thrown off, through a feverish condition of the scalp is ex ploded. Prof. Unna, Hamburg, Gef« many, European authority on akin diseases, says dandruff is a skin di sease. The germ burrows under the scalp, throwing up little scales of cuticle and, and sapping the vitality of the hair at the root. The only hair preparation that kills dandruff germa is Newbro's Herpicide, "Destroy the cause, you remove the effect." Not only cures dandruff, but stops falling hair and causes a luxuriant growth« Delightful hair dressing.
