ROBERTSON General Manager of the Montana Railroad Passes Away in Kansas City After Long Illness. F. T. Robertson, who was connected with the Montana railroad in various positions of responsibility for seven years, durng which time he has worked his way steadily forward to the gener al management of the road, passed away in Kansas City last Thursday af ter a long illness. Death was due to a complication of diseases and the end had been expected for a long time. When the seriousness of the malady first became evident the capable en gineer was taken to tihe famous Ro chester, Minn., hospital, but nothing could be done to check the ravages of the disease. F. T. Robertson was born at Carlton, Mo., forty-seven years ago. After a thorough course in civil engineering he went west and made good in every sense of the expression. He is survived by a wife and three children, a brotfher and a mother. Though yet a young man he had occupied many responsible positions with various western rail roads, including the Santa Fe, Union Pacific, K. C. Southern and Northern Pacific. While in t/toe employ of the Montana road, the deceased became very closely identified with the manifold interests of the greatJu dith Basin. He became well and favorably acquainted with Lewistown and Fergus county business men, all of whom are grieved to hear of his untimely death. The building of the Montana railroad was largely under his supervision from the beginning, and during the construc tion of this road, he became famous for many engineering projects which were difficult in the extreme. These gave him high rank in his profession. When the Milwaukee began construc tion work through the state of Mon tana, Mr. Robertson was given charge of the work and at the time of his death he was chief engineer for the Milwaukee in this state. AN INTERESTING ART EXHIBIT Rare Treat for Lewistown People— Proceed' Will Buy Pictures for the Public Schools. The Turner art exhibit consisting of reproductions of the masterpieces of ancient and modern sculptors and painters, was on display in this city last week under the supervision of Prof. P. M.Sllloway, the capable superintend ent of the Lewistown public schools. This great collection of art was higlhly enjoyed by the many people who visit ed the exhibit in the new McDonald & Charters building. Not only was the exhibit a success insofar as interest, instruction and at tractiveness went, but the matter was an entire financial success. When all the bills are paid a neat balance will be found on the credit side. The money, which approximates *100, will be ex pended for the purchase of pictures which will be used in the decoration of the walls of tihe Lewistown school buildings. Quite a number of good pic tures can be purchased for this sum, and a committee of teachers will soon decide upon which of the many beau tiful masterpieces seen by Lewistown people last week, will be procured. Professor Silloway deserves great credit for the conscientious manner in which he is endeavoring to educate the school children and the people of thiB city. Nont only in bringing this fam ous collection of pictures to the city, whereby the old as well as the young is instructed, but in giving illustrated, lectures for the benefit of the entire public, is Mr. Siloway diffusing knowl edge in this vicnity. The Turner collection was packed up last Saturday evening and was ship ped to Deer Dodge yesterday morning, wher eit will next be placed on display. One of the most pleasing features of the four day exhibit was the high class music furnished by Mrs. Brewer's or chestra. The orchestra consists of many pieces and many delightful numbers were furnished by the youngs ters. Mrs. Brewer has been remark ably successful in her instruction to her pupils. A gun shoot practice last Sunday af ternoon was participated in by several local devotees of Nimrod. William Kreplin did the best shooting, landing 24 birds out of a possible 25. Some of the best shots had an off day apparent ly from the looks of the score sheet, which read as follows: Weaver. 14 Williams. 21; Murray, 14; Johnson, 14! Taylor, 17, and Wells, 21.
