Te plan is a very simple one. The delivery organization collects from every business house four times a day. The goods ar eall quickly col lected at a central station and from there are sent out to the homes. It j reduces the number of delivery wagons j by haif and msures more prompt a nd ; satisfactory service. ; . t ™ eat ' ng T of J1 basln , e l S ™ e , n n'<.wwi h So ,Ud M h n Ub , tonis , h , 8 . ex P lain tbe ' k, 'f t G °?Tl°Tr In tn u i a ' P * be tak ' en to mstal! it here. _ ! ; I The Doors to Wealth open readily to him who has made early and frequent deposits in a sav ings bank like this.

Nearly all majority members of the house, except a few'headed by Repre sentative Henry of Texas, are aligned with the movement undertaken by Democratic Leader Underwood, with the approval of President Wilson, to put off the administration ship pur chase bill until after the November elections. The proposal is that the house shall begin recessing three days at a time beginning next week, so most of its members may go to their home dis tricts immediately and that congress shall adjourn about Oct. 15. The ship ping bill would be taken up as soon a special session called for the pur pose in November. RDSSMGEMN ARIES FIGHTING SINCE LAST SUNDAY as congress reconvened, either at the regular session in December or at - LONDON, Sept. 30.—(4:15 a.m.)—A rtispa t eh from Rome to the Exchange C o mp any, dated Tuesday says: "A Petrograd message states that a fierce battle between the army of General Rennenkampf and that of the German general, von Hindenberg, has been rag in S «ince Sunday morning along a front extending from Grodno to Drus keniki, on the Niemen river. Four army corps have been, engaged on both sides and the Russians are being constantly reinforced from Vilna. The Russians already have repulsed the Germans at several points. THE SCIENTIFIC SWINDLER. Oh, yes—there are new ways of fool ing us being devised every day. And some of us are being just as easily fooled as were our ancestors, in spite of all the knowledge we have packed into our heads. Sometimes we are snared by the scientific swindler. At other times we snare the scientific swindler—just to preserve the balance of things. Only the other day Samuel Spitz was telling persons in Oakland, Cal., that he had invented or discov ered a machine whereby he could throw on a glass disc at night the image of anything out of doors within a five-mile radius. He offered "stock" in this "Wireless Spectroscope" con cern at low figures. Some boobs bought it, too. But iconoclastic per sons investigated. They found at a "test" that a panorama film was being hidden in the machine and worked off on them. Now they propose to prose cute the "inventor." What does all this amount to?

In the evening the festival closed with a most enjoyable dance, a large number of the visitors remain ing over for this social feature.

Interest centered, perhaps, in Dummy West, the cave man, whose wonderful strength and hitting ability have made such an impression on the fans. They all realize thoroughly tiiat Dummy has the hardest punch of any man ever seen here. The question now is whether or not he will be able to land it on the fast and scientific McCarthy. For himself. Dummy enter tains no doubt at all. He expects to land and also to win. The chances are, however, that he will find Mc Carthy much faster than any of the big men he has ever tackled. Dummy has defeated, either by decisions of knockouts, Kid Black, " Fred Beebe, Red Morrisv, Jack Butler, Jack Price, Jack Bcschotte, Tommy Fry, Tom Watts, "The Black Diamond," Tom Elrod, Ben Stevens, Lee Davis, Tom Jenkins, Jimmy West, Gus Christie, Rudy Hinze, Kid Flander, Jim Mul len, Jack Cornell. In his entire car eer he has lost just one decision, that being taken by Jack Sullivan in 1911 at the end of 10 rounds. No matter how this fight comes out, the battle between Cyclone Smith and Phil Kear ney is going to be a stellar event. Smith has worked like a demon to get into perfect shape and he is there. As for Kearney—well, you all know Phil. The preliminary between Willy Freeman, of Butte, and Howard Chap man, will be the classiest curtain rais er ever witnessed here and that makes the card, as a whole, a most attractive one. Indications point to a big house, the advance sale yesterday being very satisfactory. McIntosh, of Butte, will be the third man in the ring. -O NEUTRALITY NOT VIOLATED IN RECEIVING GOODS FROM GERMANY WASHINGTON Sept. 30.—No prin ciple of law stands in the way of the importation from Germany of sugar beet, dye stuffs, cyanide, and other chemicals needed by American in dustries, is the opinion of Solicitor Johnson of the state department. Addressing a conference of repre sentatives,of these industries here to day, Mr. Johnson said export cargoes from a belligerent to a neutral nation could not be considered contraband of war or subject to seizure if the good faith of the shipment was estab lished. Even arms and ammunition, lie said, could be imported from Ger many to the United States for use in the United. States without objection by powers at war with Germany. F. W. Sturn, of Great Falls, is at the Fergus hotel. SEUWIIE PRAISES STOUT WRITES MONTANA CONGRESSMAN CONGRATULATING HIM UPON efficient efforts. WORKED FOR WESTERN MEASURES List Includes Reclamation Extension, Alaska Coal Leasing and Water P,w er Bills, All Important Administra-i tion Measures. By KENNETH ROMNEY. WASHINGTON, Sept. 20. Secretary Franklin K. Lane of the interior de ... meat has written a personal letter to (ongiessman Stout thanking him or the part he took in the passage j b> the house ot the administration censer cation measures The letter, | which otficially recognizes Mr. Stout as one of tlio administration leaders in legislation affecting the west, is as follows: "My dear Mr. Stout: Permit me, j on the passage by the house of the i hist ot our bills for the opening and ; utilization of the lands of the west, to congratulate you most earnestly on the helpful and efficient part you have played in the passage of these mea sines, and to experss the earnest hope that you may be returned to give fur- j tlier support to our president and I make more splendid the record of our i party. Sincerely yours, FRANKLIN K. LANE. (ongressman Stout, as a member i ol Hie public lands committee and of! the committee on irrigation of arid j lands, took an active and important part in shaping three of the great ad iiiinistration bills to which Secretary j Lane refers. These are the reclama tion extension bill, the Alaska coal leasing bill and the water power bill, committees spent a solid year oil their preparation, giving hearings on interested parties and working to , bring about the use of the nation's de velopment.

I i i • , ILWAUKEE'S GOOD SHOWING IN FACE OF DEPRESSION THE EARNINGS DO NOT SHOW MUCH FALLING OFF THIS YEAR. With more unfavorable traffic con ditions prevailing throughout the ountry it was expected that the Mil waukee railway system in its last lis-! cal year would fall considerably abort i of the 1913 record. While there wera rord crops in the road's lerriterv in 1913 they were hardly comparable to those ot the previous year. me, J . .. , . !!.

While this showing was very much better than in 1912 it still fell short of net earnings of 1911. Gross earnings in the last fiscal year dropped off more than $2,300,000, compared with 1913. Operating ex- 1 Penses, however, were cut down over $1,500,000, so that net earnings showed a decline of only $747,457 from the previous year. Since the Puget Sound line became an integral part of the Milwaukee system in January, 1913, the gross earnings of the last two years have shown a big jump compared with 1912. Previous to 1913 returns of the Pacific const extension were received into Milwaukee earnings only in the shape of "other income." This item has therefore been practically cut in half. It is an interesting fact that where as freight earnings fell off nearly $2,700,000, the Milwaukee's passenger traffic increased and earnings from that department were over $500,000 larger than in the previous year. ----------©— T,.,™., „ ..

The hunter who fails to get i.js quota of five chickens will be out of luck, Game Warden l)i Hart wishes all hunters to learn a signal that has been generally adopted in the west to lie used by lost or injured hunters. The signal is the firing of a gun once, with nt! intermission of ten seconds before the second shot, then an intermission of tit) seconds and then a third shot. If no answer is received, this signal should be repeated after an intermls 8 ion of five minutes. The answer to the signal is a single shot from the rescuing party, followed l.y one recog nition shot from the lost man. In the [absence of a watch the time can be judged by counting 10 between the first and second shots and lid between the second and third shots. Hunters are urged, whenever they hear a shot jn the mountains to count ten to doter mine whether it is a signal of distress or not. it is lawful from October 1 to Dee. 1 to kill one elk (in certain sections of the state), one mountain goat, one mountain sheej (only grown three deer (one which may rams) i doe) and grouse, prairie chickens, fool hens, sage liens, pheasants and partridges at the rate of not more than five a day, and, of course, wildfowl, the season on which opened Sept. 1.

In tonight's session Inman, in 23 in nings, scored 610 points, while Hoppe 1 tallied 301 in 22 Innings. During the j play botli men found the ivories rather difficult to control and a new set of : balls had to be substituted. So far in the English sessions the results have been very nearly alike as in the three | games at this style Hoppe's scores have been a fraction over a half those made by Champion Inman. At balk line, however, Hoppe in two games scored 1,000 to Inman's 295. Tomorrow and Saturday balk line play will predominate and the remain ing two hundred sessions of English billiards will be played on Friday.
