IS ON PECULMR CHARGE ABOUT TO ENGAGE IN BUSINESS IN LEWISTOWN—IS TAKEN TO BILLINGS. Acting upon telegraphic instructions from Sheriff J. C. Orrick, of Billings, Sheiff Firman Tullock last Wednesday arrested F. E. Bowers, wanted at Bill ings on a charge of grand larceny. Mr. Bowers was taken back to the sugar city by Deputy Sheriff Joseph Lawson, who came over for him. The arrest was a complete surprise to Mr. Bowers' friends here and the prisoner professed to be as much astonished as any one else. He came here some time ago with his family and had com pleted arrangemeents for going into the tile roofing business on a rather extensive scale, the line he followed at Billings. He made no effort what ever to conceal his identity here and had arranged for advertising. Nature of Charge. The complainant in the case is the Farmers' & Traders' bank, of Billings. It is alleged that nearly a year ago Bowers left with the" bank a diamond ring worth ~$500 or more as security for a loan. A little later, according to this account, he went to the bank and stated that he had a purchaser for he sparkler, requesting that he be allowed to take it out and make he deal. This was agreed to and that was the last seen of him. It is stated that the officers have been on the lookout for him ever since, finally lo cating him in Lewistown, when he was on the eve of launching his business enterprise. In the Petersburg Trenches. Winter poured down its snows and its sleets upon Lee's shelterless men in the trenches. Some of them bur rowed into the earth. Most of them shivered over the feeble fires, kept burning along the lines. Scanty and thin were the garments of these heroes. Most of them were ciad in mere rags. Guant famine oppressed them every hour. One-quarter of a pound of bacon and a little meal was the daily portion assigned to each man. But even this allowance failed when the railroads broke down and left the bacon and the flour piled up beside the tracks in Georgia and the Carolinas. One-sixth of this daily ra tion was the allotment for a consider able time, and very often the supply of bacon failed entirely.—Henry A, White. Ot Local Interest Smoke Clitus cigars.

Billings, Feb. 22—An enterprise known as a better farming movement of Fergus county, which has for its purpose an improvement in conditions tinue the practice of extending credits. Dr. Sudduth, who has a national reputation for his alfalfa investiga tions, believes that the salvation of the agriculturist lies in diversified! farming, and that the various crops' produced should be milled, or convert ed into such form ns to produce a bal-1 anced ration so that it may be fed to hogs and cattle, in which event the best possible results will be obtained. By following this practice, grain and other products can be fed and sent to market in the form of livestock. The plan of the association is to negotiate with the banks for cheaper money, which will be loaned to the farmers, as it has been demonstrated that they cannot afford to pay the high interest rates prevailing. Ho says that the financial institutions will ar range with the organization to get funds fro rathe east and lend to the association at 6 or 7 per cent. Louns will be made to the growers at 8 per cent and the difference will be placed in a sinking fund, which will be used to establish a soiling agency and create a better market. Marshall in Butte.
