Tex Lambert, a well known char acter of the Judith basin, and one of the pioneers of this region, was found dead last Friday on the range south of the Snowy mountains, where he was employed herding slheep for P. I. Moule. The cause of death Is not definitely known, but was presumably due to heart failure. He had been herding a band of sheep ,and when the band began to wander about as though without a herder, suspicions were aroused. After a deligent search the dead man's body was found on the jnrairies. Tex was a peculiar character. Like many an other early westerner, few knew of ihis previous life, and where he hailed from is a mystery to some of his best acquaimances. He landed in the basin about twenty years ago, anid for a while freighted from this point to Billings. Later he drifted from camp to camp, herding sheep and doing various kinlds of ranch work. The deceased 1 was fifty years old or thereabouts at the time, of his demise. OLD YEA It SUNDAY. This is a day being more and more observed In the East.

On September 18 the boys of the Lewistown Fire Department rendered us a favor which we cannot overlook. On the night of January 1, 07, they are going to give a grand ball. We want to help Them along, and in order to make an inducement we will give, with each Fifteen Dollar Purchase in our Men's Furnishing department, a FREE TICKET — To the — — Firemen's Grand Ball =— This advertisement breaks all the rules of conventional advertising. We do not care much whether we sell you the amount of that purchase, though we rather would than not. We want the above large type to catch your eye, and impress the fact in your mind that The Firemen are going to have the steeliest dance "eCer." Do you know what our local firemen are doing? They are serving without pay. You know our rate of taxation is high; they also know it. They do not want to ask for money from the council. i But there are a great many articles needed. They are giving this dance to purchase these articles. You owe it to yourself as a citizen to help them out. Y ju owe it to them as the owner of a home. Your property is in their keeping, and a Dollar and Fifty Cent investment will at some time possibly bring you large returns. The census says that there are 3,000 population in our city. That means that there should be at least (counting one man to every five of population) not less than SIX HUNDRED MEN in the town. If every one of these six hundred men attend, it will net them a snug sum. Every man, whether he has any property or not, should attend. That would make the record attendance of the city's history. Possibly you disapprove of dancing. That is all the more reason you should attend. Get all your friends together and pack the hall so full that it will be impossible to dance, and stay there until daybreak to prevent it. Show the boys that your heart is in the right place. We have known them for years. They are putting in their time tor your benefit. Show them that you appreciate it, and when they ask you to Buy a Ticket, Don't Be a Piker There's a whole lot of satisfaction, at midnight, when you hear the bell to know that the "Red Wagon" will be there before you rub the grit out of your eyes.
