Miners' Union No. Ill, met with the
school teachers at the Shaules Hotel
on Monday evening, to discuss plans
and arrangements for the annual

was decided that the school children
should furnish the program for the
entertainment and the union provide

it will be remembered, the school and

success and having an earlier start to

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. Several nights each
week some of the members meet at
the Eisner hall for practice, and the
past week has witnessed two highly
interesting games, and on both oc
casions the Kendall team won handily.
On Wednesday evening the score
stood 15 to 11. Messrs. Coolidge,
Manwaring, Ottman, Durnen and
Ycrian played on the Kendall team
and Messrs. Huber, Bullard, Murphy,
Martin and Tierney on the Barnes

game was played between the Ken

members of both the Barnes-King
and Town teams, who were present.

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

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

In accordance with the announce

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.

as a letter from an actual residnet

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.

Species of Cacti Form Hedges Prac
tically Impenetrable.
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

Enthuses Over West
I New York, Nov. 7.—Clarence H.
Mackay, president of the Postal Tele

to New York, is enthusiastic over the
i business outlook of the west.
"The people out there," he said,
■ "are watching the horizon for a re
turn of prosperity; it already has ar

I This belief of Mr. Mackay was
based, he said, on observations made
by him during an 8.000-mile trip of
inspection of his company's property.
