HUT TO GIVE THE
PUN ASSISTANCE COMMERCIAL BODIES WANT LOW ER POSTAL RATE ON LITERATURE. Butte, July 12.—Representative Tom Stout of Montana will introduce a bill at the present session of congress in tended to relieve commercial organi zations in the matter of postage for bulletins and literature of a "boosting" nature. Philip W. Blake, secretary of tue Butte chamber of commerce, took the matter up with the Montana con gressman, saying that it would aid the work of all commercial organiza tions if they were permitted to en joy a second-class postage rate for their advertising matter. Now such matter is sent through the mails at the rate of a cent an ounce, whereas, if they enjoyed second-class postage they could send publications through the mail at a rate of 1 cent a pound. "I have the assurance of Congress man Stout," said Mr. Blake today, ' tnat he will interest himself in the matter. He says that he will intro duce a bill intended to relieve the business organizations and that it will be offered durng the present season. If such a bill should be enacted, it would prove of great benefit to all commercial organizations, particularly those of the west, that do much of their boosting through bulletins and other publications sent through the mails."

(Stanford World.) C. B. Griffin, immigration agent for the Great Northern railway, is cover ing the Judith Basin this week on a trip preparatory to gathering grain for the various exhibitions his road will feature this fall. In Stanford, Tuesday, Mr. Griffin outlined his plan to local business men and if the farm ers will cooperate in the publicity program arranged ,the west side will receive some very valuable advertis ing following the coming harvest. The enlarged publicity plans of the Great Northern are indicated by their desire to ship from this point and from Lew istown a carload of samples in the sheaf. Heretofore exhibits going out from Stanford and other points have been comparatively small, being shipped, generally, in a box, but this year, with soil of generally recognizedl quality to exploit, Mr. Griffin figures that a box car can be filled with repre sentative produce to good advantage. To secure the best results and real ize all that is possible from consist ent advertising of the Judith Basin, it is absolutely necessary that farm ers lend their assistance. This they can do by bringing in sheaf samples to either the Basin bank or the First State bank of Stanford and placing them on exhibition. In about three weeks, while harvest is in progress, Mr. Griffin will call in Stanford again, view the samples on display in the banks and go out to the fields from which they were taken and gather ex hibits for the land shows and exhibi tion trains. If every one concerned cooperates, the west side will receive the best advertising in its history, ad vertising that will bring land buyers and increase land values. William McElroy told the World Tuesday of an extraordinarily fine piece of timothy growing on his ranch near Denton, which originated under rather peculiar circumstances. The timothy is a volunteer crop and Mr. McElroy traces its appearance to a load of nay that was hauled across the field three years ago, since which time it has been annually recurring, until, this year, it has spread over a considerable acreage. It stands over four feet in height and Mr. McElroy states that it is undoubtedly the best headed timothy that he has ever seen. The Basin has often been referred to as a natural timothy country and Mr. McElroy's crop tends to make the as sertion an established fact. He will place a sample on exhibition. J. B. Long, proprietor of the fa mous uong real estate holdings north of town, was in Stanford several days this week attending to business mat ters. It is reported that a deal is un der way for the transfer of the land to parties who have definite plans for retailing it out to practical farmers. It is possible that the prospective purchasers are members of a Mennen ite colony, but of this no assurance is given. The land was viewed this week by a representative of an east ern real estate agency and it is sup posed there are excellent prospects of a deal being closed in the imme diate future. The land comprises some 30,000 acres an dis held to be particularly well adapted to diversified farming. Notice to Creditors. Estate John Miller, deceased.
