ON THE BOOM C. M. Webster Says Our Growth Is little Short of Phenominal Outsiders All Express Surprise. The people of Fergus county do not fully realize the rapid strides we are making toward developing our agri cultural resources. Our almost phe nominan progress is brought more forcibly to our attention every time a visitor from any other portion of the state spends a few days here. C. M. Webster of Great Falls, who was here for a short time some ten days ago, has the following to say about Fergus county in an interview with a Great Falls paper: "Fergu county is booming," says Mr. Webster, "and hundreds of settlers are flocking in and taking up farms. It is astonishing. Land is being cultivated on every side, and it will be but a few years until the county will be fenced from end to end in adjoining farms of grain and fodder . Fergus enjoyed the late rain to the utmost, in fact it was pouring down still when I left there, and while it has been disagreeable ov erhead and underfoot, the benefits to the thousands upon thousands of acres of rich land in that county, recently settled and put under cultivaton by new settlers from other states is well nigh incalculable. "Fergus county is a country in itself and one can hardly imagine the ex tent of its resources. It is well wat ered, has ranges, ranches and farms, and in addition hundreds of thousands of acres of tillable land, capable of raising crops without irrigation, a fact of comparatively recent discovery, but of which large numbers of practical farmers from other sections are now taking full advantage. And among its mineral resources are the wonder fully rich gold properties now being so profitably worked at Kendall, Gilt Edge and other points. The gold pro duct of Fergus county mines must now be from $140,000 to $175,000 per month, while new developments and discover ies are continually being made. The mineral development of the county has been most remarkable and has ex cited the interest of mining men ev erywhere. "It has been but a short time, com paratively, since I cisited Fergus county, and Lewistown, previously, but the change wroght would seem to be one almost of a decade. Farm hous es are springing up like mushrooms all over the country, and where previ ously one could travel half a day al most without sighting a habitation, all now is a procession of homes. It is wonderful: one of these mornings the people of Montana will wake up and find that Fergus county will almost head the list, both in population and prosperity." BIG MEN ARE ARRESTED. Prominent Stockgrowers Must Put Ip For Fencing Public Domain. Deputy United States Marshal Juni us G. Sanders returned to Butte Fri day after having arrested a state sen ator and several wealthy stockmen of this state on a charge of fencing pub lic lands. All of them furnished bonds and will appear before Judge Hunt in Helena within the next week or ten days. The men upon whom Dep uty Sanders served warrants are Sen ator Charles McDonald of Sweet Grass county, and his partner in bus iness, Edward Veasey, residing on the Mine to One Statistics prove that the ehances of your dying of Throat or Lung Troubles, are 9 to 1.

Silver of Silver Bow county. These men were all indicted by the grand jury which met in Helena, June 8, and Deputy Sanders left to serve the men with the warrants issued charg ing them with fencing the public lands, more than a week ago. The prominence of the men and the ser ious nature of the offense charged makes it more than usually interest ing. In bed we laugh, in bed we cry, And born in bed, in bed we die.
