The directors ot the Bitter Root Fruit Growers association held a meeting in Hamilton Thursday even ing. Plans for the perfection of the organization are rapidly maturing. The membership is growing rapidly. Fruit Inspector W. J. Tiedt, who has been soliciting memberships, reports that nearly every fruit grower south of Hamilton has enrolled. The board is still looking for a manager. A tempting offer of the management has been made to Mr. Shepherd, publisher of "Better Fruit'' contracts with every fruit grower in and manager of the Hood R.ver Fruit Growers association. the valley, if possible, to dispose of his fruit. Much better prices and greater economy in handling may be ; secured by selling the entire crop through the one agency. As soon as the necessary contracts have been | secured the board will address a dr- j cular to several hundred of the larg- | est buyers in the country, inviting bids. In this way the crop may be disposed of before it is picked and 1 packed-say by August is. : Every box hanoled by the associa- ! tion will be picked and packed under the personal supervision of the manager, and will bear the associa- ! tion's label.

The Outlaws beat the Four Hundreds by a score of 9 to 7 in a fast exhibition of baseball on the local diamond Sun day afternoon. It was the first game of the season and was played by two Hamilton nines. It had been expected that Corvallis would play here, but on account of the absence of some play ers, the contest was postponed. The best players of the Hamilton nines will be consolidated in a regular club and judging from the playing Sunday it will be an aggregation hard to beat. The line-up and score follows: Four Hundreds.

NEXT FRIDAY WILL BE PIONEER DAY State Superintendent Urges That It be Observed Letter to Children. W. E- Harmon, state superintendent of public instruction, has mailed to all county superintendents for distribu tion to the school trustees and teach ers, pamphlets giving notice of the setting apart by the law of Montana of one day in the public schools for the study of pioneer history. The day, which falls on the last Friday in May of each year, is to be known as Pioneer day, and it is urged that it be gener ally observed. The state board of education was authorized to award annually a pioneer medal to the student of the public schools or state institutions who shall, on Pioneer day, deliver the best essay on the subject of pioneer history, hav ing regard to historical research and literary merit. The state superintend ent trusts that there will be a close competition for this medal, as the spirit which prompted the lawmakers to keep green the memory of those men and women who faced the dan gers and endured the hardships of Montana during the memorable period from 1860 to 1870, and who succeeded in establishing a great commonwealth where chaos had formerly existed, is a worthy one. In his letter to the school children the state superintendent says: Dear Children: You will always find it pleasant, profitable and instruct ive to become familiar with the his tory of your own country and state, particularly that portion of it relating to the pioneers of Montana. Your common school education cannot be fully completed until you have secured a complete knowledge of the pioneer history of vour own countv and state. Those pioneers and settlers who dur ing the years of our civil wa, and dur ing the years preceding that event, came to this region before a perma nent name was given to it, and who here made their homes, reared their children, encountered the privations, hardships, and the dangers and perils of those years, and who laid and es tablished the foundations of our great commonwealth, are deserving from us all a fitting recognition and remem brance, something more than mere passing notice. Their motives, their purposes, the spirit animating them, what they accomplished, and the names of their leading men and heroic spirits, are all fit and proper subjects for consideration, thought, study, and instruction in all our schools.

It is a fact not generally known that the second largest hog ranch in the United States is situated in Mon tana. It belongs to B'. G. Neidering haus, of St. Louis, one of the largest manufacturers of granite ware in the country. The property consists of 5,000 acres of well watered land, as fine as can be found in the state and lies just across the Missouri river from Oswego, in Dawson county says the Helena Independent. AN UP TO-DATE FARM. Three years ago Mr. Neideringhaus irehased the ranch anh , a! ._ purchased the ranch and began rais ing hogs. He has spent thousands of dollars in improving the property until now it is considered the most up-to-date and modern farm in the northwest. It has been Mr. Neider inghaus policy not to do any farm work that could be done by machin ery. He has large gasoline freight engines, huge steam engines for plow ing, other machinery to grind barley and peas, alfalfa cutters and every other modern invention designed to supplant hand or horse labor. When he purchased the property he determined to raise hogs and has fol lowed a program that was carefully mapped out on the start. Most of his pigs were bought in the Bitter Root valley, where pure bred animals have been raised for years. In 1903 Marcus Daly shipped in the finest swine money could purchase. Dr. Mills is a large breeder of pigs until now the Bitter Root strain has be come infused in nearly all the swine herds of the state. RAISE 10,000 PIGS. This spring- will be the first season that Mr. Neideringhaus has raised pigs for the market. His crop this year will be over 1,800 little porkers and every succeeding year this will be increased until he is raising an nually for the market 10,000 hog's, which is figured will supply the mar kets of Butte, Anaconda and Helena. With pork selling at five cents a pound, which has been the average price to the growers tor several years, and the pigs weighing 150 pounds, each animal will bring a little over $7 a head. The cost of raising and keeping the animals until they are ready for mar ket is two dollars a head, leaving a net profit of five dollars on each animal. When Mr. Neideringhaus raises 10,000 pigs each year as he in tends to do, his net profit will be $50,000 a year. While many pigs are raised in Mon tana the supply is not equal to the demand and the slaughterers are com pelled to ship in hogs froAi Nebraska and other middle western states. Mr. Neideringhaus spends a con siderable portion of each year on the ranch and is greatly interested in the work. NO BETTER BUSINESS. "There is no better business the farmer of Montana can go into, as either a regular business or a side issue, than hog raising," said State Veterinarian Knowles yesterday. "The pigs need the least care of any meat producing animal, and Montana pork is better than the corn fed pro duct; the meat is firm and deliciously flavored. What is wanted is a quickly maturing animal and that can be-and is being raised in this state. no trouble to keep. "The young pigs are turned out on an alfalfa field until they are about five months old; then they are taken into the feeding pens and fattened for about three weeks on peas and barley and the finished product is the finest to be found in the eountry. It is sur prising the number of pigs that an alfalfa patch of two or three acres will support and when they are turned out it is not necessary to give them any further care until they are old enough to fatten. They keep well on the alfalfa and put on flesh which the peas and barley turn into good firm meat." A Narrow Escape. G. W. Cloyd, a merchant of Plunk, Mo., had a narrow escape four years ago, when he ran a jimson bur into his thnmb. He says: "The doctor wanted to amputate it but I would not consent. I bought a box of Bucklen's Arnica Salve and that cured the dangerous wound." 25c at Corner Drug Store. * in in of as TWENTY PUPILS PASS EIGHTH GRADE EXAMINATIONS.

"Some aies it settled in my knees and lamed me so I could hardly walk, at other times it would be in my feet and hands so I was incapacitated for duty. One night when I was in severe pain and lame from it iny wife went to the drug store here and came back with a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
