Frank Strouf, the wheat king of western Fergus county, is a business visitor to this city. Mr. Strouf says that with the completion of the Mil waukee line down Spring creek and across the Wolf creek country, the business interests of this city should take up with the proper parties the matter of erecting a beet sugar plant in Lewistown. He states that he has carefully computed the acreage of bot tom land adaptable to sugar beet rais ing along Wolf creek and contiguous to the new line of road and the total is 21,000 acres. This added to the total acreage of such lands along Big Spring, Warm Spring, Cottonwood, Beaver and other smaller creeks and the Judith river is sufficient to insure enough beets to keep a big factory running up to its capacity. Such an industry would add millions to the value of that land, provide an annual income to the farmers of hundreds oi thousands of dollars and be a tre mendous factor in the commercial up building of Lewistown. It is a subject worthy the earnest consideration of the business interests of this city. Up-to-the-minute job printing at the Democrat office.

There is witchery in the very air on this night of devilment and ghostly pranks and every other adult in the city would have to be a policeman to pre vent an outbreak. The kids are en titled to a night of fun, frolic and mischief and so long as they avoid perpetrating acts of wonton injury, no one should object to their pranks. L. V. Jackson, who has been en gaged in the real estate business in Moore for the past two or three years was a business visitor to this city the latter part of the week. In conjunction with C. A.

Thompson, of the Kendall school, was given as his subject, "The Coun try School Mar'm," and admitted his inability to do the subject full justice. He did mighty well at that. Doctor Manchester, of Moore, talked interest ingly on the small high school and contended that the upbuilding of the small high school depends largely up on the encouragement and sympathy shown by the residents of the com munity in which it is located.

He advanced the opinion that each county in which a county high school is located should also pro vide a dormitory, where students from the outside could live and have their welfare looked after by re sponsible and interested parties. Miss Sawyer, of Gilt Edge, showed herself a most versatile after-dinner speaker by mingling some excellent stories and practical suggestions in just about the proper proportion Prof. Herbert Sackett, of the local high school, was the last speaker ot the evening and delivered a most scholarly address on the teaching pro fession, the qualification of the ideal teacher and the general aim of edu cation.

Advance in Aviation. In July, 1909, the United States army bought its first Wright aero plane, after a series of tests conduct ed at Fort Myer, Va., then believed to be very rigid. Today that original Wright machine reposes in the na tional museum at Washington, as much a relic as if it had come into use a century ago. The first Wright machine is so crude and so limited in its possibilities that it is completely out of date. And all this has come to pass in two short years. Nothing today is making greater strides than aviation. When the Wright brothers sold their machine to the government they were compelled first to fly cross country for 14 miles without stop. They did this, but before making the flight went over every foot of country to be covered by the flight, looking for lighting places in case of accident. Today aviators are flying across the continent, every day traversing coun try they have never before seen, and of which they know nothing. What was considered in 1909 a most hazard ous undertaking is today an event that does not Justify mention in the aviation news. No flight of 14 miles would today be noted as worthy of even brief mention.

Judith Basin Star: A great deni of interest has been aroused in this vi cinity by the disappearance of Hans Jenson, who has apparently abscond ed, leaving behind him a number of debts ranging from thirty-five to two thousand five hundred dollars. His indebtedness is not confined to the merchants of this city, for it is re ported that several business men in nearby towns were included in his list. His creditors in this city are G. W. Cowan, Judith Basin Mercantile Co., Blair & Joyce, A. J. Bachi, Bur den & Williams, Ray & Cameron, Col. Kelley, N. S. Stedman, Swanz & Son and John Stevenson. From what can be learned he must have taken ten or twelve thousand dollars with him. About two weeks ago lie boarded the train here for Billings, with the evident intention of buying repairs for his Rumley engine. Hans did not re turn with the necessary repairs, but made the journey there the first step in a most, complete get-away, which was, at least, very well planned, if not very convenient, for those he left behind. Jenson owned a ranch a short dis tance south of town and this spring he planted a large acreage In flax. Previous to this he disposed of his horses at auction and bought an en gine and plows from G. W. Cowan and prepared to do business on a large scale. Having secured a number of plowing contracts, he kept a night and day crew busy the greater part of the summer. These contracts, it is Haid, were executed on a cash basis and the money received was nearly all velvet Ru t i a On a cold day, then sit down out of doors for half an hour without an overcoat and you will not leave a horse unblanketed af ter driving* :: :: ~ t* You will take into consideration not only the discomfort, but the loss this means from the injury by exposure. With hundreds of dollars invested in horses, a few dollars invested in blankets bring big returns, to say nothing of the appearance of the horse when the blanket is on and when it is off. It pays to buy good blankets not only on account of the better protection they afford but also because you get more serrtoe for your money. We have carefully selected the best blanket values on the mar ket today and from every standpoint and it will pay you to buy them. Prices Ranging Dotfn as Lott as $2.00 Per Pair Judith Hardware Gs. THE HOME OF PEOPLE WHO THINK to • him. His businesslike demeanor and hustling ways recommended him to the merchants and credit was ex tended to him from every quarter. His crop was a good one and he lost no time in disposing of it. It Is also rumored that he managed to include a portion of Pat Nllilll's crop in the sale, but this report has not been veri fied. It also developed later that ho had sold his land to I. N. Busenburg, formerly foreman on his ranch. His creditors will make a strong effort to locate him, but not a vestige of his whereabouts remain to aid them in the attempt.
