The porcupine was taking in the sights of Main street, and Mr. Hein ecke s two dogs undertook to give bat tle to the porcupine, with the result that both came out of the conflict with their muzzles full of quills. "Brownie," the bird dog, retreated after receiving a few of these souvenirs, but the game bear dog persisted and was very badly punished by the porcupine, which simply curled up in a ball until there was a lull in the proceedings, and then disappeared across T.

Lewistown is figuring pretty con-1 spicuously on the baseball map this season, thanks to the splendid show-) ing made by the White Wings, the ex- j cellent ball park and the fine support given the team by the local fans. There is strong talk now of forming a state league for next season, and Lewistown figures in this plan, as shown by the following from the Great j Falls Tribune: i The approach of the end of the sea son in the Union Baseball league has brought with it the discussion of the proposition to have baseball in Great Falls for another year by keeping a team to represent the city in some | organized league, and the majority of i opinion, without question, has been with the state league plan. There is a general disposition to have the city j in some league. The Union league has given the fans a good quality of ball and, from the | viewpoint of the patrons of the game, it has been a success. But it has not been a financial success, as the direc tors of the local association and many of the business men who have been liberal contributors to the fund need ed to support the local club are will ing to admit. Not that the men who put their money into the support of the team are peevish over the results, for they are not, because they do not belong to that class of sportsmen. They simply have been convinced that present conditions the cities of | the Union league will not support the high grade of baseball which the j league has been offering to the extent of making it pay running expenses. It is so generally talked around the j centers where ball fans congregate! that it is no longer a secret that a Montana league will be undertaken next season with six teams and a 90 day season, making the playing time in each city in the league 30 days, to be divided into four playing periods of a week each. The cities which it is planned to interest in the Montana league are: Great Falls, Helena, Butte, Missoula, Billings and Lewistown. It I is understood, on what seems to be j very good authority, that Helena and Butte have already signified their pur pose to get into the state league, and it is believed that Missoula will take quite as much interest in the new league as she has in the Union league. The new league, it is understood from sources apparently closely in touch with the new movement, will be directed wholly by local clubs, the franchises thus being held by the peo ple of the cities in the league and the managers will be players of known ability, at least some of them being players who have been with Union league teams. Again, it is disclosing no secret when it is stated that First Baseman H. H. Hester, of the Elec trics, has been consulted by members of the board of directors of the local baseball club concerning his attitude toward accepting the managerial berth with the Great Falls team in the state league if it goes through. Further more, Mr. Hester has said that he would look with favor on such a posi tion if it was decided to form a state league. Tne rivalry which could be de veloped between teams of a state league, it is believed, would put the attendance for the short playing sea son in each town up to a point that would fully take care of the expenses of each team. The expense of each team would be materially reduced and the heavy expense of a league presi dent would be almost wholly cut out by that function being performed by some one in the league at a nominal salary. The change of location of the head offices of the Union league from Salt Lake City to Missoula recently was regarded by many local fans as a movement on the part of the of FERGUS Mil'S GREATEST FAIR WILL START MONDAY SEPTE MOER 9 AND END SEPTE MBERI4 5 Da: srs—RACING—1 5 Days More than sixty of the hest running horses in the west will he in attendance and the patrons of the hig fair will he given five days of the hest racing ever held on the lo cal track. dt ^8 ^ df dl dl dl Many Free Special Attractions The management are getting in touch with a number of special features in the way of attractions, which will be put on daily in front of the big grands tand. _ Agriculture and Live Stock From an agricultural viewpoint, it is the intention of the management to make this year's fair the best ever. Our annual fair is to become one of Fergus county's permanent institutions, and with the re sources of the Judith Basin to draw from, there is no reason why the agricultural end of the fair should not be made a feature unequalled by any county in the state. Accommodations for Stock Sufficient improvements, in the way of stalls and permanent shelter for livestock, have been made to assure all who contemplate exhibiting stock that their stock will be well and properly cared for. Special premi ums will be given for all livestock exhibited not provided for In the premium list. Special Prizes for Boys and Girls Boys' Special—A prize will be given to the boy raising the best potatoes exhibited at the fair. All boys under 15 years of age are eligible to entry.

The plan most discussed by those favoring such a league is to have visits I of a week each to the different cities in the league nnd to have four playing I periods, thus giving 32 games to each j city, and giving time between the visits in which the fans in each city j would be given time enough to de j velop an Interest to want to see an j other series.
