It was suggested that many property owners preferred to take care of the grass plots and trees themselves and such an arrangement will prob ably be made, but only in cases where it can be made to apply to all the lots for a block or more on both sides of the street. The opinion is, however, that better results and more uniform ity can be secured through a general contract. The meeting was presided over by Mayor W. D. Symrnes, with Aldermen Sutter, Wiedeman, Mat thews, Berwin, d'Autremont and Mil ler and City Attorney I. B. Kirkland in attendance. Some Petitions. Phil Laux asked permission to con struct an underground boiler room in the alley back of the Blue Goose sa loon. Referred. Martin Crackling petitioned for an extension of the water main to his property in Evergreen addition. Re ferred. A petition for a sewer to extend three blocks in the Lewlstown Land company's addition was sent in by ,T. C. Young, Mrs. C. C. Jeffrey, Edward Martin and others. Referred. M. Shull asked that he be allowed to put in a 5-foot sidewalk instead of a 6-foot walk, so as not to interfere with his shade trees. The resolution fixing the levy for street sprinkling, introduced last week, was adopted. A resolution declaring intention tc create the Mettler sewer district was adopted. The estimated cost is $568. A resolution declarating intention to grade Sixth avenue from Watson to Morose streets was adopted. The es timated cost is *3,762. The formal acceptance of William Beatty of the city's offer to raise his residence on Broadway to the new sidewalk grade was presented. Separate Propositions. It was the wish of the high school board to submit these matters as one proposition for a bond issue of $80,000, but under the ruling of the attorney general they are held to be two propo sitions and must be submitted sep arately. Every one who pays even passing attention to school matters must real ize that the high school building is, at this time, entirely inadequate to properly accommodate the present at tendance. The building whe nplanned was intended to accommodate a maxi mum of 100 students. The enrollment now is getting along to double that number and every makeshift and ex pedient that could be worked out has been exhausted. The limit has been reached, so far as accommodations are concerned, but the attendance keeps right on increasing. The Dormitory. As to the dormitory and domestic science building, this is essentially for the benefit of students from the coun try, as no resident student will be ac commodated at the dormitory. Each year it is found more and more diffi cult (o find temporary homes for the students coming in from the country. It was only by making a special ef fort and enlisting the aid or all who could be interested that provision was made for these students this fall. The dormitory will solve the whole prob-! lent, solve it satisfactory and solve it for all time. The Housekeeper is Right S OMETIMES a housekeeper re quires a quick leavening agent, and finds she has no baking powder. What does she do? She raises her biscuit by a mix ture of cream of tartar and soda, or soda and sour milk. She may not get the proportions quite right, but she knows her food is safe. But does she ever use a mixture of alum and soda? Was there ever a house keeper who bought soda and alum to make a home made baking pow der? Intuitively she feels it would be dangerous. Then why listen to the story of the alum baking powder peddlers or demonstrators? They are offering the same mixture exactly that the housekeeper would not dare to buy and mix and use in her food. Alum is alum, whether bought in the drug store or in the baking powder. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is made from pure cream of tartar and contains no alum, lime or phos phate. Absolute safety is in its use. o FASEl FOUND BEST ROAO IN STATE IN FERGUS COUNTY DEATH OF GREELEY CAUSES SORROW AMONG RAILROADERS Charles Easel, long a resident of this citv and Kendall and now one of the lending auto dealers of Butte, re turned to that city Sunday from a tour ! of the state, in which he covered 1,500 miles.

In the divorce case of Mrs. Hattie Sell against Herman Sell, tried before ■Judge John A. Matthews here on April 4, last, the court yesterday filed find mgs of fact and a decree. The par ties were married at Butte in March, 1902, according to the findings, and the defendant Is held to have treated the plaintiff with cruelty and to have deserted her and failed to provide her with the necessaries of life. The court grants the plaintiff a decree and holds she is entitled to a one-third interest in the land of which the de fendant was seized during the cover ature. Judge E. K. Cheadle was Mrs Sells' attorney. DELIGHTFUL ENTERTAINMENT GIVEN RY SOCIETY MINSTRELS A crowd which overtaxed the seat ing capacity of Culver's opera house last night witnessed one of thej brightest prettiest little home talent! s'-ows that has ever been put on in 1 this city. The Society Minstrels, given under the auspices of the Presbyterian Home Workers, not only fullfilled expecta tions, but it went beyond. In point of stage business, there was none of the painful drag that usually characterizes home talent productions; there was a snap and sparkle from curtain to curtain. The entertainment was divided into two parts, chosen with the idea of contrast and variety. A very charm ing pantomime called "Sweetheart Dreams of Yesterday" gave a glimpse of twelve remarkably pretty girls, all becomingly attired, and making pic ture good to look upon. Mr. Stewart MeConochie, as a man lost in dreams, sits before a fire place, while about him flit the visions of his sweethearts as they have come into his life, almost every tvpe of girl and womanhood un til his bride, the best of all. dims all other faces. The lovely little poem accompanying it was pleasingly read by Mrs. MeConochie. Mrs. Rector made a beautiful bride. The girls in the picture were Misses Lillian Imis Tund, Vivian Slater. Cecely Blackford. Violet Draper, Newell Lane, Norma Rauch, Anna Winslow, Bernice Eml so, Caroline Warr, Judith Usher, an,* Anna von Tobel. The pantomime was followed by a 1 solo by Miss Edith Foley. She chose j Chaminade's "Summer" and her su perb rendition of this artistic waltz song won the enthusiastic favor ot her audience. Part one was concluded by numbers by the Neudigate male ouartette, which proved to be some thing pleasantly new. This is the lirst time these young men have ever ap peared as a quartette, and their re ception was decidedlv cordial. Mr Neudegate opened with a solo, "Nep tune" and the quartette followed with Goblins V ill Get You." Mr. Dockery then sang "Float On," joined in the' chorus by the quartette. Their songs were very well rendered, and met with ; hearty applause. Part two was a very pretty stage picture as well as very entertaining The stage setting was that of a cabaret with flower bedecked tables, and brightly gowned women. Several special songs were introduced, togeth er with choruses which were repeat edly encored. T'he program included: Opening Chorus—Medley of popular songs. Song—Mr. Tubbs—"A Girl I Have in Mind." Song Miss Lane—"You and I." Song—Mr. Dockery—"That Croon ing Melody." Song—Miss Fay—"Will o' the Wisp." (Spross.) Song—Mr. Nudegate—"June Morn- 1 mg.' (Willoughby.) Duet—Miss Lane, Mr. Holzgraf—! 'Sympathy", from the Firefly. Song "Goodnight."—Chorus. The choruses included: Edith Lane I Mr. Rieley, Newell Lane, Mr. Hart man, Elizabeth von Tobel. Mr. Wilson Mr. Dockery. Grace Rankin, Mr! Neudegate, Ella Hobensack, Mr. Haun Natalie Smith. Mrs. J. M. Johnson,' Mary Brown, Mrs. Rick Reed, Harry Tubbs, Alice Kinzel, Violet Draper Mr. Holzgraf and Emmett Baker. ' FERGUS COUNTY EXHIBIT WAS RIG CENTER OF ATTRACTION Secretary L. D. Blodgett of the Com mercial club had particularly glowing accounts to give of the state fair at Helena this year. Mr. Blodgett spent four days carefully viewing the exhib its, which he states are the best Mon tana has ever displayed at a state fair. Mr. Blodgett was especially in terested in the livestock this year, for as he says this was the best collection ever seen in this st?te. To his mind, one of the finest sights at the fair was the huge parade of stock which was preceded by the Boston-Montana band and governor Sam V. Stewart. "Furthermore," said Mr. Blodgett yesterday, "I was especially interested in the splendid spemments of hogs displayed. It was the best ever, es pecially the exhibits made by Peter J. Meloy of Townsend, whose Poland China breeds swept all prizes ahead of them. In interest of this county, and the farmers who are c-.igaged in hog raising, I made arrangements with Mr. Meloy for a carload of his best breed ! ng stock, which will arrive here about the latter part of October. I wish it stated that any one who wants further particulars about purchasing from this car of hogs can obtain it by communi cating with me at the chamber of commerce. The Fergus county exhibit was great. I think in the four days I was there, I actually observed more peo ple gathered around the Fergus coun ty booth than any other without ex ception. The little farm was a tre mendous hit and the big grain eagle was a marvel of real beauty. The rest cf it was superior, too, and something to be mighty proud of. Our exhibit almost as it stands will be taken to the Panama-Pacific fair, farm and all, and placed in the Montana building there. "The motion picture men who took views of Judith Basin, were there in full force, and obtained some excel 'ent views of the big fair with all the features of interest, and will show them along with other Montana pic tuies in San Francisco next year." YOUNG MEN'S CLUB ARRANGES FOR AFFAIR AT FERGUS HO TEL SATURDAY EVENING. FAILED TO FILE COMPLAINTS AGAINST FIFTEEN OF THEM FOR NOT STATING CAMPAIGN EXPENSES. OPERA HOUSE MEETING TO FOLLOW Governor Accepts Invitation and Com mittee is Appointed to Make all Ar rangements—Suffragists to Have a Meeting Friday Evening. When it was definitely assured that Governor S. V. Stewart would be here next Saturday to open the democratic campaign in Montana the Young Men's Democratic club formulated a plan and yesterday Secretary A. Rosen berg was in communication with the governor at Butte and the executive accepted an invitation to attend a banquet to- be given in his honor at the Fergus hotel at 6:30 Saturday evening. The club appointed a com mittee consisting of H. L. Fitton, Jos. M. Schmit and Mr. Rosenberg to make all arrangements. Immediately follow ing the banquet, the governor will go to the opera house and address the mass meeting. The Suffrage Meeting. Local suffragists expec the biggest meeting cf the whole campaign at Culver's opera house Friday evening, October 2. At this time, Mrs, Antoin ette Funk, the Chicago lawyer, and Miss Grace Erickson and others will make addresses.) The speakers will be introduced by Superintendent Franzke of the city schools. Mrs. Funk is a remarkable woman, and one of the most brilliant speakers In the country. In Chicago she holds a place as an eminent criminal prose cutor, and has an exceptional gift of speech. Lewistown suffragists consid er themselves fortunate at having her among them and feel that all who do not hear her Friday, will be missing a really great opportunity. With her on the program, and perhaps more of a drawing card to people of this city, is Miss Grace Erickson, who is a lewistown born girl. Her mother and father were prominent citizens of this town some years ago, and Miss Gracia was well known as a little girl. Since those years, she has be come prominent as an active worker for political equality, and many Lewis town people will wish to hear her speak. Every one is cordially invited and the meeting will be free of charge. INADYERTAN CE IN EAC H INSTANCE Penalty Would be Pretty Heavy if Imposed, But Expectation is That it Will be Remitted This Time—Mrs. Sell Granted a Divorce. County Attorney Charles J. Marshall has fi.ed fifteen complaints against those candidates at the primary nom inating election who failed to file statements of the expenses incurred by them in their campaigns as re quired by law. These reports should have been liled on September 9. The provision of the law covering this mat ter provides that those candidates who fail to put in th estatements are liable to fines of $25 a day for each day of delinquency, which successful candi dates who fail may not have their names printed on the ballots. These j fifteen delinquents all failed to com ply with the requirement through in 1 advertance Some of them were not aware of the provision, while others supposed it applied only to successful candidates and some simply overlooked it. The impression is that, under the circumstances, any penalties imposed will be remitted. The delinquents in clude republicans, democrats and so cialists, the list being as follows: J. C. | Hosch, democrat, justice of the peace, Hobson; D. F. Bruner, republican, jus tice of the peace, Grass Range; L. D. Womeldorf, republican, justice of the peace, Hobson; Henry J>arson, social ist, treasurer, Windham; John Ferns, democrat, justice of the peace, Wind ham; L. C. Bibb, democrat, constable, Benchland; J. C. Funk, socialist, pub lic administrator, Windham; Frank S. Fuller, republican, county commission er, Winifred. George B. McFerran, democrat, assessor, Moore; J. E. Cox, democrat, commissioner, Roy; C. E. Foster, socialist, state senator; Sula Lowrie, socialist, county superintend ent, Coffee Creek; H. H. Bradlev, so cialist, representative, Roy; John J. Jewell, democrat, state representative, Hobson; B. F. Gordon, democrat, state representative, Straw; S. B. Morcutt, democrat, state representative, Den ton; A. D. Myers, socialist, county commissioner, Lewistown. EXCELLENT AWARDS TO NIGH SCHOOL EXHIBITS From the state fair at Helena, Prin cipal H. L. Sackett of the Fergus coun ty high school sends some very grati fying information. The exhibit sent to Helena this year by the domestic science and manual training depart ments of the high school were of un usual merit, and have been given rec ognition by the state judges of county high school displays along these lines. The Fergus county manual training department was awarded first place for the best joinery exhibit. Other prizes were to individuals. Miss Marie Walk er was awarded a gold medal for the best corset cover. This is a state tro phy. Miss Hyacinth Rowley won first place for the best embroidered night grown, embroidery design original. Miss Lois Wright won first place for the best tailored shirtwaist. Miss Uiona Piper won first place for the best lingerie waist. Both departments feel justly proud of hteir efforts. The Fergus exhibit was arranged for dis nlay after reading Helena by Miss Maude O'Hara. Sam Cushman is in the city from Utica. A KIND WORD FOR DOGS. Hot weather does not produce rabies, which is a germ disease, communi cated only through the saliva of in fected animals. Statistics show that it is slightly more prevalent in early spring than at any other season, prob ably because dogs and men, pent up all winter, are moving about to a great er extent. Through elimination of its victims, rabies actually decreases as hot weather approaches. If dogs are to be muzzled, medical authorities point out, they should be muzzled constantly and not simply in midsummer. The direct rays of the sun often pro duce in young and nervous dogs a vio lent seizure in which the animal shaps and barks, trying to hide itself as though in terror. Rest in a cool, dark place brings prompt recovery, but many a dog has been killed spectacu larly while in one of these fits. Dogs that have bitten persons or other dogs and are suspected of hav ing rabies should not be killed unless they are unmanageable. The police department or a veterinary should keep such a dog confined under ob servation to make a diagnosis. If the dog is killed, its brain and spinal cord should be sent to the university labor atory. Early use of the Pasteur treat ment is effective insurance against the development of the disease.—Detroit News. HOW MANY IS A BILLION. I wonder if we realize when we talk of a billion dollars what an enormous sum of money it means? We all know how rapidly an expert counter of coins will manipulate them. You can scarce lv follow the motion of his fingers as he shifts the coins from one pile to another and counts them. The treasury experts will count 4,000 sil ver dollars an hour and keen it up all day long, but that is their limit. Working eight hours a day, then an expert counter cf coins will count 32, 000 silver dollars in a day, but how long will it take him at that rate to count a million dollars? Thirty-one days. But that is only the beginning of the measurements of great figures, for if this same man were to go on counting silver dollars at the same rate of speed for 10 years he would find that he had counted only 10,000, 000 of them, and that to count a billion of them would require 102 years of steady work at the rate of eight hours a day during every working day of every one of the 102 years.—Kansas City Star. COLEMAN IN BUTTE. Says the Butte Miner: All eastern Montana is prospering, particularly the Judith Basin, where, according ta John A. Coleman of Lewistown, for merly a well-known Butte attorney, the farmers are harvesting bumper grain crops. Mr. Coleman is in Butte for a day or so on business. "Butte seems much the same to me." said he last evening, "though it is rather quiet from the recent turn of events. My prediction is the big camp will be better than ever before when the clouds lift. In most of the agricul tural sections of the state things are humming, and over in Fergus coun ty we are enjoying the best of times. Lewistown also is flourishing and is having a steady growth." Mildred Marshall, of Hiiger, is at the Bright. J. M. Stafford, the Hiiger business man, is in town. —FOR— GRAND UNION TEA, COFFEE, SPICES, SOAPS and EXTRACTS 'PHONE 288J Lewistown Agent 112 Fifth Ave. S.
