GATHERING OF NOTED AT THIS WAS ONLY NOTABLE FEA TURE OF OBSERVANCE OF THE FOURTH. ____ _________ _______ _____ Sager on Main street, where all had (Special Correspondence.) Maiden, July 7.—The Fourth was duly celebrated In this little burg, which witnessed so many stirring scenes on similar occasions in the past. Maiden was for a number of years a typical western camp. To the credit of Maiden be it said, however, that its history of over thirty years is not marred by a period discredita ble to it. The observance of the na tal day was quiet, the most notable event being the gathering of some of the old-timers at the home of Adam an enjoyable time. Those present, as now recalled by the writer, were John Riley, John Wert, Jack Dove, Adam Sager, William Maurier, Thomas Kerr, Richard Mitchell, John Alexander, Bob Good, Owen Murphy, Chris Johnson, Paddy Norris, D. P. Harris and per haps a few others. Mr. Sager acted as caterer and the repast was a sumptuous one. John Alexander, bubbling over with wit, wisdom and eloquence, acted as toastmaster and discharged his duties gracefully. Among the toasts responded to were: The Old-Timers of Fergus County," by John Riley; "The City of Maiden, the Oldest Town in the County," by Owei\ Murphy; "The Ladies of Maiden,' by Paddy Norris. Jack Dove entertained the company with a solo. This gathering was a spontaneous affair and was remarkable for the fact that in the company were a number of the earliest settlers in the county. Messrs. Riley, Wert, Kerr, Sager, Dove and Maurer were all, I believe, in Yogo in 1879. E. B. Coolidge loaned a kodak to "snap" the group as the members of it lined up. The kodak is understood to have been put out of commission, but did not learn how badly it was damaged by the strain. LARGE PLANT COMES HERE. Ground Has Been Secured for Factory Site on Sunbeam Heights. C. Hy Smith, president of the Mon tana Sunbeam Light & Supply com pany, has been in Lewistown the past week looking over the possibilities of shipping facilities of Lewistown and was so well pleased with the location and the reports received from the railroads, also the manner in which the most prominent business men have been offering their support to wards taking stock in the concern, that he has decided to build and equip a factory here. The company will no doubt break ground in 30 days for the plant. The first building will be a two-story structure, approximately 40 by 100 feet, and will be rushed with all possible speed. The lines to be manufactured will consist of enameled steel folding bath tubs and heater, enameled sinks and lavatories, also a full line of hydro-carbon lighting sys tems; in fact, a complete line of mod ern conveniences for the ranch and small town homes and hotels. The Montana Sunbeam Light & Supply company is a $30,000 corpora tion, which was started in a small way in Butte in 1907 by Mr. Smith and its business has grown to such an ex tent that it is known in practically every hamlet in the northwest and its stockholders are among the most prominent men in the state of Mon tana. Thursday afternoon of last week Mr. Smith presented his propo sition to the Lewistown Chamber of Commerce and after investigating as far as limited time would permit, the Chamber was impressed with the merit of this enterprise. This company will be a splendid advertisement for the city of Lewis town, as they are large advertisers, sending out each year thousands of catalogues, handsome booklets and folders through the whole northwest, also employing a large sales force for covering this territory. Wars and Financial Crises. Engineering Magazine: The eco nomic disadvantages of war are, in the long run, unmistakable even to the dullest of observers; but tem porarily and locally these evils may be so masked by momentary trade ac tivities as to be estimated too lightly. The economic losses are due to the destruction of life and property, to the removal of a large number of men from productive labor, and to the gen eral disorganization of trade and finance. Nothing can make up for these losses; but they are often tem porarily masked by immediate small gains. In nations like England and the United States, which are always unprepared for war, its outbreak causes a feverish activity in many trades. It is necessary to accumulate suddenly supplies of all sorts, and this process normally causes trade activity and rising prices. During such a period of forced activity the demand for commodities is abnormal both in its amount and in its direc tion. Further than that, it is a de mand for tonnage, rather than for quality, and for immediate delivery, rather than for economic manufacture. So that at the end of a national struggle we normally find all the great industries in an unsound con dition, and technically less efficient than at the outbreak of the war. In the popular opinion, a war is a time of active trade, while a financial crisis induces a period of depression. It may therefore seem unorthodox to suggest that a war is economically an utterly bad thing, while a financial East Fork Ranch FOR SALE One thousand three hundred and seventy-five acres on the east fork of Spring creek, about 12 miles from Lewistown and extending easterly across the divide into the McDonald creek valley, to within one-half mile of the C., M. & St. P. Ry. and only two miles from the new town of Heath. The tract con sists of about 150 acres of valley land, extremely rich and well adapted to the growing of alfalfa and timothy and all kinds of vegetables, of which the yields are enormous. There are about 750 acres of uplands of the same fertile soil that has made the Judith Basin famous as the greatest grain-growing section of the world. Two hundred acres of this upland is under culti vation. The balance of the land is first-class grazing land, well watered by several springs. East Fork creek, which is a fine trout stream, affords water for irrigation and power pur poses. There are two sets of buildings on this tract. Tele phone connections with all Montana cities. Price, $25.00 per acre; terms reasonable. The Cook-Reynolds Company LEWISTOWN, MONTANA crisis is not entirely evil. A period of trade depression, however painful it may be at the moment, is a period i r 0 which Industries are being conducted economically and efficiently. A finan cial crisis is the normal and natural remedy for over-expansion, for waste ful practice, and for personal and in dustrial extravagance. Unlike a war period, a time of business depression is fertile in inventions, and is marked by careful and economical operation of industries. Economics in all pro cesses, and experimenting with new processes, are alike taken up most seriously when the margin of profit is low, and not whe nit is high. Earned the Dollar. The women of a Methodist church in St. Paul undertook to earn the sum of $1 for the church, and agreed to write verses telling how they earned it. Some of the rhymes may have been superior to those of Mrs. X., but it is safe to say that no woman found a more picturesque way of earning her dollar. Her husband brought home some limburger cheese one night. Mrs. X. started to seek refuge in another part of the house. "I'll give you a dollar if you'll eat it," called out her husband as she was leaving the room. She held him to his offer, ate the cheese and won the dollar. Betting at Sea. People at sea bet on all sorts of con tingencies. An emigrant ship from England was recently approaching the Australian coast, and an interest ing event was expected at any mo ment in the married people's quarters. Considerable speculation and excite ment were developed over the ques tion whether the happy event would take place within or without the three mile limit. A great cheer went up when it was officially announced that the little stranger was legally an Australian and had earned the £5 baby bonus of the commonwealth. A minute or two earlier and the child would have been a native of Stepney, London, to which parish children born at sea belong.—London Chronicle. Sun-Worship. (Cleveland Plain Dealer.)
