It was decided that the school children should furnish the program for the entertainment and the union provide the tree, as they did last year when, it will be remembered, the school and Miners' Union gave a similar enter tainment. The affair was a grand success and having an earlier start to prepare for the festive holiday oc casion, the entertainment will surely equal, if not surpass, the one given last year. The Kendall Athletic Club is prov ing a most successful venture, and the members have organized three basket ball teams, which are known as the Kendall, Barnes-King and Town teams.

Kendall, Mont., Nov. 1.—The largest deal in real estate in this section that has been put through was closed by Montgomery & Johnson early last week, when they sold the ranch of James Awberry to Joseph Brath, of Cottonwood, Idaho. This property comprises 800 acres, of which 200 acres are under cultivation. This ranch is one of the best in this vicinity and is situated about four miles north of Kendall.

Basket ball will be the main game this winter and sev eral teams are practicing enthusias tically every evening at the Eisner hall.

In accordance with the announce ment by the city council, the property owners residing in Boulevarding Dis trict No. 1 met at the Carnegie library last Saturday evening and se lected the trees which shall be plant ed in the district. The county was represented by Commissioners Peter sen and Parrent, the city by Council men Baker, Stuart, City Clerk Imis lund, City Attorney Blackford and Engineer Wasmansdorff, and the property owners t)y David Hilger and Mesdames Charles Lehman, Al bert Pfaus and Harry Brown. David Hilger presided as chairman and invited a free and full discussion of the question before the meeting. After talking over the matter, it was decided to plant elm on the outside of the walks and black ash on the inside. Both are known to be good, hardy trees and both are of fairly rapid growth. The matter of grading on the court house square came in for some dis cussion, many of the property own ers in the district being dissatisfied with the present arrangement. Just what will ultimately be done is a matter of conjecture. Build Up This Country. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway is interested in the de velopment and settlement of this country and, in the work of attract ing immigration, needs the active as sistance of settlers already located here.^ This section of the country needs more farmers, dairymen and stock men. The new towns need more men. The new towns need more mer 'chants, business men and professional men. There are opportunities for all. Nothing appeals so strongly to a prospective settler in a new country as a letter from an actual residnet giving details as to the crops raised, the yields, the prices, the climate, the cost of getting a start, the water and fuel supply, and other information. You have a splendid country. The soil is fertile, the climate good and the chances for getting a start are much better here than they are in the thickly settled portions of the west. You can help build up this coun try. If you have friends in the east try to interest them in locating here. I would like to have you write me about your personal experience since you located here.

The hedges which we ordinarily sec bordering country estates are plan re;, for their ornamental and beautify m effect, and not as a substitute for lim ing tnaterial, but in the extreme south western part of the United State; there are many hedges which serve primarily this latter purpose. Various species of cacti, such as the prieklj pear, are used by ranchmen to inclose cattle ranges in those arid regions, and these hedges are practically im penetrable. Wild animals are thus effectually prevented from attacking the herds and flocks, and a supply oi fodder may always be obtained bj burning off the spines from the tendei young shoots of the cactus. Remains of hedges 15 feet in height are to he seen near the locations oi the old missions in southern Califor nia, where they once served as forti fications to protect the little settle ments. Instead of fences the Mexicans use what is known as the organ cac tus. When stakes of this plant are set In the earth they readily take root, and soon present a formidable harries of thorns.—Harper's Weekly. Alias Summons.
