Thomas Gregory, the well known Stockman and rancher who resides about three miles from Straw, was in the city yesterday for the purpose of paying his taxes and paid the office cf the Democrat an appreciated call. Mr. Gregory is one of the pioneers of Fer gus, having come over here in '81 and settled on the ranch which he now owns. Like all old timers, Mr. Gregory has some interesting reminiscences of the early days in this county. "1 came over to Fergus county in 1881," said Mr. Gregory to the editor of the Democrat," and intended to set tle in Lewistown but after looking over the situation, drove back out across the Rock creek bench and located a por tion of what is now my ranch. 'I must confess that it was not an especially inviting prospect in those days but somehow I always had an idea that this country would amount lo something and just held on. My faith has been abundantly justified and 1 am truly thankful that 1 settled where ( did. •'Those first few years were rather lonesome, especially for my wife.

My wife did not sec a woman for over a year after we had settled out there on the ranch. Hut one day, the late Christ King and fam ily came along there and stopped with us all night. Mrs* Kjlng gould not speak the English language but Mrs. Gregory made her sit up the greater part of the night and talk, Mrs. King's son, doe, acting as interpreter. 1 saw doe King today and that incident was recalled. "During my residence in the west, 1 had tangled up with the Indians, more or less, and never went to bed after 1 settled in what is now Fergus coun ty without my rifle, revolver and a good supply of cartridges within easy reach. "Bring an old timer has its advan tages. For instance, bwause she was the first white woman to settle in that neighborhood, the Straw Townsite com pany, when they laid out the town, deeded to my wife a corner lot. Such lots are now selling for 8200 each." Mr. Gregory was recently offered a sum exceeding thirty thousand dollars for his holdings near Straw but says that Fergus land is good enough for him and that the Inland Empire is as good a place as he cares to live in so lie refused the offer. Only high class gifts can be dainty. The secret of our immense holiday business is found in the quality of our goods.

ENJOYABLE DANCE GIVEN BY EAGLES HARMONY HALL SCENE OF BIG GATHERING THANKS GIVING NIGHT. One of the most successful and pleasant balls ever given in the city was that which was given last Thurs day evening (Thanksgiving night) by the Fraternal Order of Eagles. The boys spared no expense in preparing for their annual hop and every member of the lodge constitut ed himself a committee of one to as sist the regularly appointed commit tees in the work of entertaining their guests. m The attendance was about the largest ever seen at a dance in this city and not one thing occurred to mar the keen pleasure of the merry dancers. Mahana's fine five-piece or chestra furnished the music and until 2 o'clock in the morning, the dance went merrily on. The Eagles have one of the biggest if not the largest fraternal organi zation in the city. They have been doing some hustling for new members during the last few weeks and initia tions are very frequent as a result. The local lodge is also in a splendid condition financially, there being over one thousand dollars in the treasury at this time. Over eight dollars were cleared at the dance Thursday even It is more than likely that this fra ternal order will follow the lead of the Masons and put up a home of their own next year. They expect to pur chase a good lot very shortly with the expectation of erecting a modern hall as quickly as the arrangements can be perfected.
