HARVESTER TRUST 'SHOW ME" STATE WILL DRIVE COMBINE OUT—THE SUPREME COURT DECIDES CASE. _ Jefferson City, Mo., Nov. 14.—The supreme court of Missouri in an opinion by Justice Graves today sus tained the decision of Special Com missioner Theodore Brace in his find-1 ing for the ouster of the International Harvester Company of America. The court not only ousted the company from its right to do business in Mis souri, but imposed a fine of $50,000,1 conditioned that if the company pays the fine, separates itself from the International Harvester Company of New Jersey, files a statement, of its business and shows to the court that it will obey the laws in the future, it can be permitted to continue to do business in the state. The court gave the harvester com pany until Jan. 1, 1912, to pay the fine of $50,000, and until March 1, 1912, to withdraw from the New Jer sey company and to show the court that it is an independent company and will comply with the Missouri laws. Failure in this, the ouster order will be signed by the court imme diately after March 1. Judges Lamm, Brown, Ferris and Woodson concurred in the opinion by Judge Graves. Chief Justice Valiant wrote an opinion which was con curred in by Judges Lamm, Brown and Ferris. It left the amount of the fine to be fixed by the court after the com pany made a showing that it would comply with the law in the future. Judge Graves sustained the position of Special Commissioner Brace on every contention. The opinion found that competition was lessened and that practically all of the harvester business was done by the respondent company in the state. It held that it is contrary to the laws of the state of Missouri for one company to conduct the business of another, as in this case, the New Jersey company had no license to do business in Missouri. Discussing the case, Judge Graves in his opinion says: "The respondent in this case was a part and parcel of this gigantic and nefarious scheme. For some years it has been the mere sales agent of the International Harvester company, the New Jersey company. It was licensed in this state to sell its own goods, but it is now selling the goods of another. "As such party to an unlawful ar rangement or combination it should suffer tlie penalties prescribed by our laws. I have indicated that we could temper justice with mercy. We have the right, absolutely, to oust, it from the state and in addition to fine it. I think a conditional ouster should go and the respondent be fined in the sum of $50,000 for its long and con tinued infraction of our laws." The International Harvester pany in September, 1910, was found guilty of violating the Missouri anti-1 A CHECKING ACCOUNT n With this bank will focus on your business the helpful interest of a strong financial institution.

The case was submitted to tne supreme court for affirmation last April. The effect of today's decision is to prevent all the companies which make up the International Harvester company from conducting further business in the state. The taking of testimony in the suit, began in May, 1908, and continued over a year. Judge Theodore Brace, of Paris, Mo., was the special com missioner appointed by the state su preme court to take testimony in the case. This was conducted by Gov ernor Herbert S.

Yet, right here in Lewistown, there are thousands of women who are neglect ing or injuring their hair to such an extent that it is only a matter of time when it will be utterly ruined. Many women destroy the beauty of ; their hair through thoughtlessness or ignorance of certain facts. They use I curling irons over-heated, or to ex i cess, which destroys the natural oil of the hair, causing it to split, break, and come out. They do not shampoo their hair often enough, or too often. They use soaps or preparations which con tain ingredients positively harmful to the scalp and hair. As a result of such treatment, dand ruff is created, the hair loosens, loses color, falls out, and baldness com mences, unless proper and prompt pre cautions are taken in time. Then again, microbes and certain diseases bring about unhealthy scalp and hair conditions. Almost any woman may rid herself of dandruff and diseased scalp and hair if she will but use the right remedy. We have that remedy, and we will positively guarantee that it will either cure dandruff and baldness or it will not cost the user anything.

Ingersoll arrived in Stanford from Galesburg, 111., last Monday, where he lias been detained for the past two months. Mr. Ingersoll's re turn at this time is for the purpose of concluding the season's work on his big ranch adjacent to this town. He has been operating two power plowing outfits during the entire sum mer and has about 3,000 acres under cultivation. The series of religious meetings conducted at the Mauzey and Brant wait homes on Coyote bench for a week by ministers of the Reorganized Churcli of Latter Day Saints, was con cluded Wednesday evening and the visiting pastors departed for their sev eral homes the day following. The pastors were: Rev. J. W. Rushton, of Independence, Mo.; Rev. W. T. Boot man, of Springfield, Mo.; Rev. Thomas Reese, of Bozeman; T. E. Fitzwater, of Hobson. B. Keirstead, of the firm of Spragg & Keirstead, of Denton, was attend ing to business matters in Stanford last Monday. Mr. Keirstead recently returned from Chicago, where lie dis posed of tlie last shipment of sheep from his firm's ranch and which prob ably indicates their discontinuance of ihe stock business. He is undecided as to his future movements, although his proprietorship of large acreage of land is causing Hint to consider enter ing the wneat raising business on an extensive scale. Through the accidental discharge of shot gun, Mr. Albert Billideau, who arrived in Stanford last Monday from Albert Lea, Minn., is suffering from a terrible wound in his right ankle that is liable to necessitate amputation ot the foot. Mr. Billideau is at. the Ma kovsky home, northeast of town, but he will be brought to Stanford as soon as his condition will permit the re moval. Mr. Billideau was riding with Jos. Makovsky in the front seat of a spring wagon, in the back seat of the rig the gentlemen had placed a loaded shot gun, securely wrapped in a robe, and after traveling some distance, one of them, with a view to either using the robe for their own comfort or to place the gun in a more secure posi tion, reached back and drew the gun, still wrapped in the robe, over the back of the seat in which they were sitting and was placing it. between them with the muzzle pointed down ward, when in some manner, caused either by tlie hammer of the gun striking the seat or by the tangled condition of the robe in which it was wrapped, it was discharged. Although one of Mr. Makovsky's overshoes was completely torn from his foot, he es caped without injury, but the entire charge from the gun passed through the ankle and foot bones of Mr. Billi deau's right limb. PHILBROOK. (Judith Basin Star.) M. T. Rooney returned Tuesday from Corwin Hot Springs, where he had been for several days. Mr. Rooney informed us that he had disposed of liis stock in this well known health resort to C. S. Hefferin, a Livingston banker. John Porter, one of our prosperous ranchers, is busy this week loading four cars of wheat, which he is shipping to Minneapolis. John had a splendid crop this fall, having 235 acres in winter wheat, which averaged about 40 bushels per acre, llis crop of spring wheat was a fine one and yielded him about forty bushels per acre. Con Stang, one of our enterprising farmers, performed a novel stunt this week, and one which apparently seems to be entirely out of reason. But Con told it himself, and as his veracity has never been questioned, we must accept it as the truth. It seems that t on was favored with a superabund ance of plowing and threshing con tracts and being desirous of fulfilling them, he passed up his own 100-acre field of oats. Last Sunday, finding that lie possessed some leisure time, he determined to cut the oats. We have an imaginary view of Con, with the thermometer away below zero, the snow about a foot deep and Hie wind playing havoc with his coat tails, resolutely cutting a crop of oats and snowballs. But Con is thrifty and we hope he gets more than straw out of his oat field. Surely this is a very fair sample of Montana aggressive ness and Con will "git. thar if it takes a leg." MOORE. (Inland Empire.) Mr. and Mrs. George McElroy were in the city tills week from their home stead near Denton. They left yester day for Hobson, where Mrs. McElroy boarded tne train for Nodaway, Iowa, to spend the winter with relatives. Mr. McElroy expects to join her in about a month. Rev. C. E. Haynes, of the Methodist church, was taken to Great Falls Mon day by E. F. Ross and Wm. Felker and placed in the Deaconess hospital for treatment. Mr. Haynes has been ail ing for the past two weeks and seemed not to be improving as rapidly as was expected, so it was thought ad visable to take him to a hospital where he might receive proper care Messrs. Ross and Felker returned home late last night and stated that when they left he was getting along nicely and would probably be home In a few weeks. Morning and evening services will be held as usual at the Methodist church next Sunday and will be conducted by some out-of-town minister. Marshal "Billy" Moore returned this afternoon from Helena, where he was summoned Tuesday morning to appear at the court martial of James F.

Her condition when she left here was very critical and her recovery will therefore be soine " hat slow, but it is thought that she will regain her usual good health. Mr. llersey is still at Butte and will prob ably remain there another week. •lohn ii. VVeidenborner, R. W. Clif ford, \Y. R.

Order of Judith Basin Commercial Co., Lewistown, Mont. Another Perpetual Motion Machine. Sir Hiram Maxim lias discovered a discoverer of perpetual motion, so lie says. Sir Hiram prefaces loss than half a column about the latest dis coverer with more than it column about past, failures, in the course of which he alludes to a perpetual mo invention, tion machine of his own about which ho says: "if it does not, work there is no truth in mathe matics." A central shaft carries a boss on which are fixed six (or eight, as Sir Hiram seems to prefer) equidistant arms. On one end of each pair of firms is fixed a nine pound bull, and on the other a six pound ball. There is thus always a preponderance of three pounds on the right hand side, which, of course, keeps the system re volving with a gain of thirty to fifty cent power! "Hitherto," he says, "we always looked upon perpetual motion as art j'ignis fatiius,' and have placed it In tne same category as the elixir of por petual youth and the philosopher's stone. But now, it appears, it' we can believe report, that a young inventor, Mr. Stanley Hitchcock, of Upper Nor wood, England, lias really invented a perpetual motion nmchine that ac tually works. "It is very gratifying to me to know • hat Mr. Stanley Hitchcock was one of my pupils. 1 have seen him in re gard to iiis wonderful invention, and he informs me that, on one occasion he started up the motor, locked it. safely in a room, and went away to the seaside' for some weeks. Inven tunlly the neighbors complained of the dreadful noise that the motor was ma king day and night." The "No-Blot" ruler for sale at the Democrat. Supply Dept.
