The beavers are making a (lam down on Spencer Norcut's raneh. Visitors say it is a novel sight the way these animals cut down large trees with which to build their dam. E. J. Ivaull and Cashier Brown of the First National bank have pur chased the F. O. Hanson ranch con fisting of 360 acres of land, one of the finest farms to be found anywhere, tiie consideration being $55 per acre. W. J. Owens, formerly manager of the Basin I,umber company but now a rancher near Gilt Edge, was in Denton a few days the latter part of the week. We were somewhat sur prised that Mr. Owens has entered the political arena and has announced his intention to run for county commis sioner on the. republican ticket. Mr. < Uvciis is well known in Fergus county and stands a good chance to receive a good following from his party at the primaries in August.—Recorder. GRASS RANGE. Dr. W. A. Deal, county health offi cer, was In Grass Range last Sunday looking after sanitary conditions here. Joe Afflerbaeh, the little son of Mrs. J. H. Afflerbaeh, was brought into (trass Range today suffering from a rattlesnake bite. Dr. Bartlett at tended him and is out of danger. A dancing party was given at the T. M. Shaw ranch last Tuesday night in honor of Miss Lillian Kircher of Lewistown. Several attended from Grass Range and report a very pleas ant time. Mr. and Mrs. John Arthur came out from Lewistown last Monday, accom panied by Mrs. Edward Brassy. Mr. Arthur will open his new grocery store in the Fergus County Democrat build ing In a day or so. They returned to Lewistown Monday afternoon, accom panied by Mrs. Charters.—Review. STANFORD. Miss Nyna Gregory left Monday evening for Lewistown to be gone un t■' 1 after teachers' institute. Miss Gregory will teach at the Kelleher school this coming year. She will have the honor of being the first graduate of the Stanford school to enter the teacher's field. Frank TTolzer arrived last week from Alaska and made a visit with his sister. Mrs. F. J. Fiddler. On Mon day, Mr. Holzer and Mrs. Fiddler left for Wisconsin, where they will spend some time visiting with their brothers and sisters. Mr. Holzer has spent the past eight or nine years at placer min ing in Alaska and had with him a gold nugget valued at about $550. He was at one time the owner of a ranch near here.—World. WINIFRED. Charles Minnier of Rainsford, Mont., will be the manager of the Winifred Equity elevator. Henry P. Hendrickson is a new set tler who has arrived in this community from Harper, Kansas. He purchased the Parker Cragin place this week for $1,000 and expects to engage in the stock raising business. Harvest is now in full swing in this community. The crop will not be as heavy as last year's but will average fairly well. The flax crop which will not be ready to cut for a few weeks is expected to be heavier than usual.— Times. VALENTINE. Owing to the fact that some of the arrangements cannot be completed in time the picnic announced to be held at Valentine sometime during the mid dle of August will probably have to he postponed until the first of Sep tember. There seems to be a certainty of getting a threshing machine in this locality during the first part of the season. A machine coming into the country as soon as the grain is cut would do a very good business in deed.—News; NOTICE OF PUBLICATION OF TIME APPOINTED FOR PROVING WILL, ETC.
