GRAIN YIELDS
THE FARMERS OF JUDITH BASIN
URGED TO REPORT CROPS
TO THE DEMOCRAT.
WILL BE BENEFIT TO All
Reports Will Be Used by Commercial
Club and Other Agencies in Ex
ploiting Agricultural Advantages
of This Section of State—All Will
Be Benefitted.
Beginning in this issue, the Demo
crat will print each week for the next
month or more a form which we re
spectfully ask that the ranchers of
the Judith Basin fill out and return
to this office. The desire is to se
cure as accurate an idea as possible
of the grain yields of the Basin. The
matter was suggested to this paper
by a high official of the Milwaukee
railroad company, who stated that
such information is desired for ad
vertising purposes. It is also desired
by the local commercial club and oth
er agencies who are engaged in the
laudable task of bringing before the
country the unparalleled agricultural
development and opportunities of
this favored section of the Treasure
state.
Will Do Much Good.
Such advertising will be of immense
benefit to all concerned. It will bring
in new settlers who are looking for
land and thereby add to the value
of every acre in the Basin. It stimu
lates the interest of the heads of the
railroad companies to whom we are
looking for better transportation fa
cilities.
Fill out and send in to the Demo
crat the following form:

Hot Biscuits and Coffee Will Feature
Furniture Co.'s Demonstration.
The Malleable range demonstration
at the Lewistown Furniture company's
store began today, and the large
crowd of ladies that thronged the
store this afternoon is the best evi
dence of the success of the demon
stration. Hot biscuits and coffee,
made on a Malleable range by Miss
Mary Reed, will be served every day

of the demonstration, which closes
next Saturday night.
One of the attractive features of
the demonstration that has made the
occasion of exceptional interest to
the housewives of this city is the giv
ing away of a handsome $84.00 Mal
leable range at the close of the dem
onstration, next Saturday evening.
The range is to be given to the lady
receiving the highest number of votes,
and every lady over the age of fifteen
is eligible to vote. From the arrange
ment of this voting contest, it is evi
dent that Manager Marsh is some
what of a suffragist, as men are for
ever barred from voting at this par
ticular election and the ladies are
given full sway. The result w'ill be
announced Saturday night.
LOCAL
R. J. Knight, representing the E.
M. F. and Flanders automobiles, prod
ucts of the Studebaker company, is in
,the city with a Flanders, 1912, demon
strating car. The Lewistown Auto
company are the local representative
of these cars.
Wedding Bells.
Mr. Charles W. Heeson and Miss
Ruth Backus, both of Stanford, were
united in marriage last Tuesday af
ternoon, at the parlors of the Dia
mond block apartments, in this city,
the Rev. E. L. White, of the M. E.
church, officiating. The bride wore a
beautiful gown of blue mesaline silk
(rimmed in oriental lace and carried
a large boquet of carnations. Only
the father of the bride and a cousin
of the groom witnessed the ceremony.
The newly wedded couple left Wed
nesday morning for the groom's
ranch on Coyote bench, 14 miles
northeast of Stanford, where they will
make their home. The bride is the
oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse
Backus, of Stanford, and is well and
most favorably known in the western
part of the county, where her entire
life has been spent. The groom has
been a resident of the Judith Basin
for the past three years and is one
of the progressive young ranchers of
the Stanford neighborhood. The
Democrat joins with numerous friends
of the contracting parties in wishing
them a long and happy married life.
Bijou's Musical Act.
The Bijou has come to the front
with another excellent feature bill for
this week. The headliner that is ap
pearing before the boards there are
the Cortese Musical Trio, one of the
best musical acts yet seen at this
popular place of amusement. It has
been a long while since an act has
been applauded as has this the past
two nights. The Bijou was packed
to the doors last night, even though
it rained. The musical act is one well
worth seeing and those that appre
ciate real good music should see these
people. They come here highly rec
ommended and have been featured in
some of America's largest vaudeville
houses.
There are four good pictures on the
program also, which makes this one
of the best changes that this house
has had for many weeks. There will
be an entire change for Thursday,
when the Musical Trio will also ap
pear in a complete change.
At the Princess.
A very pleasing act is that pre
sented by the Bothwell Sisters at the
Princess this week. The ladies are
pleasing singers and dancers, and
have so far this week delighted the
audiences.
Mr. Gardner's songs, as usual, are
one of the features of that popular
playhouse, and the program of photo
plays is up to the usual standard.
It is a good show the Princess is
giving and the attendance shows that
it is appreciated by the public.
FOUR EOIEI WHEAT
YIELDS BIB IN BASIN
NEW HYBRID WHEAT SHOWS
ONE-THIRD GREATER YIELD
THAN TURKEY RED.
Frank Hammer, a rancher who
lives about 35 miles north and west
of this city, brought to this office
last week a sample of a new variety
of wheat, which, if future experiments
bear out the results attained by Mr.
Hammer this year, means a great
deal to the Judith Basin.
Last year Mr. Hammer heard and
read a great deal about a new va
riety of wheat that was the result of
long experiments at the experimental
station at Walla Walla, Wash. This
new variety of wheat is the result of
a mixture of Turkey Red and Blue
Stem and is called "four-fold," prob
ably so designated because of the j
greatly increased yield claimed for it,
and born out by the experiments thus
far made.
Mr. Hammer sent to the Washing
ton experimental station and pur
chased one bushel of this wheat, and
last fall he sowed one acre in the
same field with his Turkey Red. The
new variety was given the same at
tention as tliat given the Turkey Red
and the large field in which the "four
fold" was planted was subjected to
exactly the same treatment. When
the time came for harvesting, the
new variety yielded 41V£ bushels,
while the Turkey Red on all sides
only yielded 27 bushels to the acre.
Mr. Hammer brought in a small
sample of the new variety to the local
mill and the grain will be made into
flour to determine its relative value
for milling purposes.
It is said that experiments in
Washington have proven that this
new variety of grain contains all the
necessary properties for the manu
facture of an excellent grade of flour,
and while it is not yet extensively
grown in that state, the price com
manded for it, such as has been pro
duced, is a little better than that of
fered for Turkey Red.
It is the intention of Mr. Hammer
to put in forty acres this year, and
the result of this more extensive ex
periment will be watched with great
interest, as a variety of wheat that
will add 14 J /Y> bushels to the yield per
acre is well worth watching.
SPORT
Sherw'ood Magee has turned his at

Most of the experts in New York
think that Herzog's playing has put

The pitcher with a good fast ball

Connie Mack says he wouldn't pay

Lefty Russell.
According to announcement via St.
Paul, President Ban Johnson notified
Harry Howell, the former St. Louis

Two former star American League
pitchers failed to shine in the game
at Boston between the Reds and
Rustlers on August 23. Cy Young,
who was pitching his first game for
the Boston Nationals, was knocked
out of the box in three innings after
he had allowed nine hits and been
charged with a wild pitch. He struck
out two. Frank Smith, former White
Sox pitcher, was in the box for Cin
cinnati and lasted but four and one
third innings, nine hits being reg
istered off him.
Howard Murphy, center fielder for
the Great Falls, Mont., team, had a
strenuous day on August 18. To be
gin with he criticized the batting of
a fellow player, who punched him in
the jaw. The offending player was
ejected from the game, but Murphy
stayed in to make two home runs that
drove in the winning scores. Then,
before the game ended, he got a
message from his home in Fort Worth
telling him that his wife had given
birth to a child. Murphy told some
of the players and the players told
the crowd. A big celebration fol
lowed right on the ground in honor
of the series of events.

Suggestions for Aiding Candidates.
This is a word to readers of the
Democrat who are not, perhaps, as
yet, directly interested in the out
come of the great contest, and who
are not likely to become candidates.
Look over the list of those young
people who are entered in the race.
See anybody there you know? See
the name of some young friend or a
neighbor? Found it? Fine; let's con
sider what ought to be done in a case
like that.
Perhaps you are already a sub
scriber to the Democrat. Now, hav
ing found a name of some candidate
in whom you are personally interest
ed, isn't it up to you to help out a bit?
These young candidates are hustl
ing right along to keep pace with the
fast running in the Democrat's con

test. They need all the help they
can get, and it is up to their friends
and neighbors to help them. It will
be a source of satisfaction to you to
know that when the automobile or
one of the other equally desirable
prizes has been landed by your can
didate that you helped the result.
Anyway, it's a good thing to dream
over. Whatever assistance you may
hand out will be more than appre
ciated by the hard-working candidate.
One young woman, who has been
keeping well up with the leaders,
learned that some unidentified friend
had placed the votes that go with a
year's subscription to her credit. It
would have done the friend's heart
good to have heard this young per
son's expression of her regard for
him.
There's another thing to think over,
and that is the liberality of the Dem
ocrat's prizes. It is not boosting the
home game too strong to say that
the Democrat's list of prizes is about
the most generous offer that has ever
been made, at least in the west, as a

Did you know that a good social
dance given to help a contestant
would prove a wonder as a vote-pro
ducer? The management has sug
gested this to the different candi
dates, but they seem to be afraid to
go ahead with the idea, as they say
that it would be asking too much of
their friends and backers. Dances,
socials and entertainments have been
given in other contests before this
and often times it arouses enthusiasm
for the contestant who is giving the
dance to such an extent that she is
veritably smothered in a deluge of
votes. All of these are mere sugges
tions. It is up to the supporters of
the contestants to make use of them.
Have you thoroughly looked over
the possibilities of the vote in the
subscription schedule? The highest
vote you can get is 25,000 for a ten
year subscription, or now that the
vote is double, 50,000 votes for the ten
years, or 5,000 votes on the year.
While if you subscribe for but one
year you get 2,400 votes, or only 2,400
votes on the year.
Last of the Coupons.
With this issue we are printing the
last of the paper coupons. We have
carried these heretofore from week to
week but to keep up the interest in
the contest. But the contest itself is
now developed enough to create its
own enthusiasm. And so we are
dropping them. All the candidates
have been interviewed in regard to
this matter, and all have spoken to
the point that they would lots rather
work for subscriptions than to go
around collecting these ten-vote cou
pons. There is nothing gained by the
candidates in collecting these coupons,
as a few minutes spent in soliciting
a subscription counts ever and ever
so many more votes.
