REGULAR QUARTERLY MEETING
OF COUNTY BOARD BEING HELD HERE THIS WEEK. Officials for Coming Election Selected _Three New Voting Places Desig nated—Town of Hilger Wants a Jail Erected—Big Grist of Bills Be ing Considered. The board of county commission ers are now holding their regular quar terly session and many matters of im portance are being taken up and dis posed of. One of the chief importance is the selection o judge sand clerks for the forthcoming election. New Voting Precincts. For the greater convenience of the electors in the respective districts, three new voting places have been designated by the commissioners. One is at Dover, in the Stanford precinct; another at Stafford, in the Fullerton precinct; and the third at Hilger, in the Kendall district. There will be a heavy vote cast at each of these new voting places, Hilger being the most important of the three. Hilger Wants a Jail. A widely-signed petition from the town of Hilger asks that the commis sioners erect some sort of a jail at that place. It is recited that the new town has reached such proportions that there is the inevitable lawless class to contend with and it is ex tremely difficult for the town officials to do anything with the disorderly element under present conditions. The commissioners are giving serious con sideration to this question. Election Officials.

Morgan takes the stand before Senator Clapp's committee investigating cam paign contributions he will be ques tioned not only about campaign con tributions of 1904 and 1908, but about any possible connection between con tributions in the period from 1900 to 1912, and any legislation in congress. This was learned in a conference be tween Clapp and Pomerene, at which plans for the resumption of the hear ing were to be arranged. The date of Mr. Morgan's appear ance has not been determined. He has been on the committee's list of witnesses since July, when he waived service and told Chairman Clapp he would come at almost any time. Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rocke feller may be called upon if develop ments warrant in the investigation of the Penrose-Archbold-Roosevelt con troversy. William Rockefeller is to be called in connection with John D. Archbold's recent testimony about an alleged contribution of $100,000 by the Standard Oil company to Mr. Roose velt's fund in 1904. It has not yet been determined to call E. H. Gary and Henry C. Frick. Ormsby McHarg, one of the Roose velt managers in the pre-convention campaign, has been asked to appear. The committee wants to question him about expenditures in behalf of Col onel Roosevelt's candidacy at the Chi cago republican convention. OF INE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR LEADS, BUT BY SLIGHT MARGIN. Portland, Maine, Sept. 10.—With the returns from 37 small towns in Maine missing at 3 o'clock this morning, the vote is as follows: Haynes (rep.), 69,615; Plaisted (dem.) ,66,152. The legislature stands on joint bal lot: Republican, 82; democrats, 78; doubtful, 18. Big Strike Coming. Winnipeg, Sept. 7.—A strike involv ing 2,000 railroad telegraphers em ployed by the Canadian Pacific on their lines between the two seaboards seemed imminent today with the com pletion of the count of a strike vote just taken. The result was unani mously against accepting the offer of the conciliation board of a 6 per cent Increase without other concessions. The men have demanded a 27 per cent wage increase, an eight-hour day for most of the operators and time and a half allowance for overtime. Sullenger Injured. Hycham Echo: County Commission er Craig Sullenger lies in his room at the Alexander hotel at Forsyth with both legs broken, the result of a run away accident about 5 o'clock last Thursday afternoon near the head of Talock creek, 40 miles from Big Horn. Mr. Sullenger, in company with Mr. Chas. Tabor, had drove to Tallock creek last Thursday to look after some county road affairs. The team they drove was known to be as treacherous as Indians and had made several attempts to run away. Finally one of the horses kicked over the tongue and broke it. The gentlemen then borrowed a cart and proceeded on their trip. In turning the team and cart around the tongue hit the nigh horse. It kicked over the tongue and both horses jumped and started to run and kick. The road leading down a steep incline, the efforts of both availed nothing in stopping the wild rush of the horses. The tongue o the cart broke, the hounds hit the ground, throwing the cart and occu pants upward, and in alighting, Mr. Tabor struck the wheel, breaking his fall, and was only slightly injured. Mr. Sullenger, however, who was driv ing, was thrown much higher and with greater violence, and came down in a standing position, slightly sideways, the impact breaking the bone of his right leg half-way between the knee and ankle, and the left leg at the ankle joint, the bone puncturing the flesh and letting the joint-water es cape. Monagan in Lead. Wilmington, Delaware, Sept. 8.— The result of the democratic primaries held yesterday for the election of dele gates to the state convention at Dover on Tuesday, shows that State Senator Thomas Monagan, of this city, prob ably has a majority of the delegates from Newcastle county in the conven tion for the nomination for governor. Under the rotation system it is New castle's turn to name the guberna torial candidate. Candidates for the legislature were nominated at the primaries. The nom inees are divided as to choice of can didates for the United States senator ship, who are Willard Saulsbury, of Wilmington, democratic national com mitteeman; former Congressman L. Irving Handy, of Smyra, and former United States Senator R. R. Kenny, of Dover. The next session of the legis lature will elect a successor to Sena tor Hary A. Richardson, republican.

Edmondton, Alta., Sept. 7.—John Eggers, a homesteader and trapper in the Fraser river valley, who is in Ed inondton for his winter supplies, re ports there are 25 moose to the square mile in the district, and also that deer are numerous. He made a large fur catch last season, disposing of the pelts in this city at good prices. Eg gers paddled a dugout canoe from Fort George to Tete Juan cache, 300 miles, without mishap. There are many rapids in the Fraser river, making the journey more or less hazardous, but many settlers, he says, are going down the swift stream in small boats and scows, taking household goods and farm implements. Six hundred men and women have gone into the dis trict in the last 90 days. The over-j land trail from the Peace river coun-1 try to Fort George is a long and diffi- j cult one. It is used chiefly by! trappers, tourists and prospectors in j search o big game, scenery and min- j erals. FLAX SET BACK. Cool Weather in Judith Gap Section May Have Bad Effect. Judith Gap Journal: The cold weath er, which prevailed for several days of last week, has not been beneficial to crops that have not ripened. It is feared that the late-sown flax will not mature, and the extremely cold nights will surely damage the spring crops. But Montana is not alone in these [EVERY DAY IS DAY Though the formal show days of fashion days sure over, the constantly arriving new models make this store an interesting center of authorative Autumn Coats and Suits, and you can always feel welcome; because we want to make this store your favorite source of garment informa tion.

In the two Dakotas it has not only been cold, but the rainy per iod set in earlier there than usual and the farmers are finding it very diffi cult to harvest their grain. It is pre dicted that the wheat yield there will be cut down considerably by the grain becoming too ripe and shelling dur ing the cutting of same. In Iowa, along the Missouri bottom, reports coming here are to the effect that af ter harvesting there was a rainstorm of such stupendous downpour that the wheat was washed away while stand ing in shock. The crop conditions are not as good as they were a few weeks ago, and the low price of all grains are not warranted by the facts. Judith Gap Journal: Reports are rife concerning surveying crews in the field from Glendive to Helena finding a definite route for the Northern Pa cific cut-off through Judith Gap to Hel ena. Reports from St. Paul are to the effect that the Northern Pacific will build this road in the near future. It will run south of the Little Belts into White Sulphur Springs and then on to Helena. This route will give the Nor thern Pacific a short line to the coast and will save double-tracking the pres ent line in order to take care of the greatly-increasing business of the road. MARCH ON CAPITAL. Mexican Revolutionists Start on Merry Jaunt to Rout Out Madero. Mexico City, Sept. 7.—That rebels of the outsh have begun an advance on the capitol is the information con tained in a message just received by American Ambassador Wilson. The typewritten note is signed by one sign ing himself secretary to General Emi liano-Zapata ,the rebel leader. It says the notification was sent through Am bassador Wilson as dean of the diplo matic corps in order that he might transmit it to his colleagues. The statement regarding the ad vance and the intentions of the insur rectos is contained in a printed procla mation signed by five men prominent in the Zapata movement—Emiliano Zapata, Adamor Salazar, Genevevo De Lao, Alfonso Miranda and Jesus Sal gado. SULPHUR TAKEN FROM WELLS How It Is Forced From Great Depths In Louisiana by Means of Hot Water. Within recent years Sicily, so long famous for its exportation of sulphur, has suffered from the competition of the United States. In Sicily sulphur is mined in the solid form. At Lake Charles, La., near the Gulf of Mexico, a little over 200 miles from New Or leans, sulphur is obtained from deep deposits in the form of a liquid. Wells driven to a depth of 600 feet in search of petroleum revealed in stead a rich deposit of sulphur. To obtain the mineral hollow tubes were driven into the earth. Each sulphur well consists of three tubes, one with in another. Through the outer tube hot water Is forced down, and it is sues through perforations near the bottom. Through the central tube hot air is driven a little lower than the points where the hot water es capes. Through this third tube. In closed between the other two, the li quid sulphur, dissolved by the water, rises to the surface under the com bined influence of the pressure of the column of water and impulsion of the rising air. The liquid sulphur is led Into wooden reservoirs, where it cools and hardens. WEDDING GLOVE FOR BRIDE Third Finger It Left Unstitched 8o That the Ring Can Be Slipped On. A happy era has dawned for the bride at the fateful moment when the ring is about to be placed on her fin ger. Instead of the usual struggle to re move her left hand glove she will now be able to uncover the third fin ger without effort and without losing her composure. This delightful result is to be ob tained by an ingenious "wedding glove" device. The inside seam on the third finger of the left glove is un stitched, so that all that the bride need do is to slip her finger through the slit to receive the ring. The fin ger can just as easily be slipped back into the glove after the ceremony. The device will be greatly appre ciated not only by the bride, but also by the nervous bridegroom. The story of the origin of the wed ding glove has come to light. Some time ago a girl who had lost her right arm in the hunting field asked for a single wedding glove. She remarked on the awkwardness of having to remove her glove with the help of her teeth, and it was then seen that matters would be greatly facilitated for the bride if Bhe only had to uncover the ring finger. The experiment was so successful that It aroused the Interest of other prospective brides, who saw in it a boon which would save them from the usual difficulties of removing a whole glove in the moment when the ring is about to be put on.—Exchange Everything in the Y. & E. line at the Fergus County Democrat Supply Department.

The missionary ligated a fresh el tar. "Yes," he said, "I have seen grim happenings in my time. The grim mest, I suppose, occurred among the Dyak head hunters. "We had converted a young Dyak, and the lad had abandoned head hunting forever. But he met a girl, a beautiful girl, and then—" The missionary shook bis head and sighed. "The girl listened to his wooing, for he was a handsome lad, but smoked heads to a Dyak maid are what jewels are to a chorus girl, and with a curl of the lip she said: " 'You vow you lover me, but you bring me no heads to prove it.' " 'But 1 am a Christian,' he replied. " 'When did a Dyak wooer ever go a-wooing without heads?' said she. 'You are not a man; you are a girl!' "The young convert ground his teeth and left her. The next morning early he staggered Into her presence with bloodshot eyes. There was a bag on his shoulder. " 'You asked for heads,' he said. "Look!' "And he emptied from the bag onto the floor the heads of her father and her two brothers!" The missionary smiled sadly "That wasn't playing the game" he said. "It's the heads of enemies that the bead hunter must bring in, not the heads of one's own brother tribes men. They shut the young convert in a slatted cage of bamboo to starve to death. He died under his sweet heart's eye."
