The Carbon County Chronicle is very reliably !
informed that the mysterious "Progressive,"
whom the Shelley candidates for delegates to the
Republican convention wish to aeclare for on the
the presidential primary ticket is none other than
the king of radical senators, Lafollette, of Wis
cons in
Four years ago Mr. Shelley ran in a bunch of m
dividuais and secured their election as delegates
to the Chicago convention through the iniquities
of the then existing laws. He chose for his bunch
persons whose names began with the first letters
of the alnhabet which nlaced them at the head of

the ticket. This position on the ticket is classed as
having about 50 per cent advantage over those
lower down. The law now provides that the
names shall rotate every 25 tickets viz that the

We do not believe there is much LaFollette sent
iment in Montana, outside of railroad circles, per
haps. The railroad brotherhood leaders are for
Lafollette for the reason that gentleman wants
to turn the railroads over to goverment
ment, notjvithstanding he declares that all gov
emmental business is now being done most in
efficiently. And yet he would add another big
burden to its regular work. Mr. Lafollette also
wishes to deprive the Supreme court of the United
States of its power, which would be a still great
er national calamity than government ownership
of the railroads.
r- Shelley .was apparently afraid to name his
man when he hand picked his delegates. Straight,
true blue Republicans want none of Shelley or his
bunch of unknowns to represent them in the
Cleveland convention. Tobe sure there is no
doubt of President Coolidge's nomination but
Montana does not care to rest under the stain of
having sent LaFollette's delegation to the conven
tion, we honestly believe.

Chronicle appends herewith a list of Shelley's can

It is reported that Mr Shelley also has some of
h!S own picked candidates, who filed singly, scat

therefore behooves all straight Republicans to as

By Sidney Batchelor
So when we travel down life's way
Thru all our trials, knocks, and strife,
We try to be so free and gay,
Believing that we've friends in life.

You may trust your closest neighbor
Or your dearest and best chum,
With the things for which you labor,
And they promise to keep mum.
But it leaks out thru some error
And they ridicule you hard,
In your search to find the bearer
It turns out to be your pard.
But in the end there's just one friend
To go.wl.sn there's no other,
And that one friend is the one to send
A sympathy,—and that one's Mother.
Some years ago we all do know,
That flappers weren't invented,
For bobing hair was very rare,
And for children was intended.
In present years there are no fears,
And bobing hair is only half,
They all do dance, and wear men's pants
While we are censored if we laugh.

Among the words I know of, which is fitted to describe the j
j highest class enjoyments of the super-social tribe,—there's
: one that ranks superlative, an' suits my fancy best,—the
little word is * ' pleasant, ' ' which I reckon you have guessed....
We all love pleasant faces, when we haunt
A PLEASANT the pleasant nooks ; we sing of pleasant wim
CHAT min, an' discourse on pleasant looks; a pleas
ant social function is an easy thing to rhyme
—and the little outdoor picnic gives its friends a pleasant
time. . . . -
We treasure pleasant memories of hours that's past an'
gone, which we spent in Pleasant Valley, with our Sunday
garments on—And it's nothin' short of pleasant, when we
hike to Pleasant Grove,—And Pleasant Hill's the Eden that

9 Yes—the little word is pleasant—fer the printer or the
scribe, that records the daily doin's of Billville's pleasant
tribe—And when you're in HER company—with nothin'
much to say, yon can start the ball to rollin' with

\ Did Moliere Wear Iron Mask?
i M. Loquln. a former president of the
Aeartemle de Bordeaux, holds that the
I man In the Iron mask was none other
î than Möllere, whose disappearance the
i Jesuits were supposed to have urged
the king to compass after the great
j triumph of "Tartuffe."
"Möllere," says this learned man.
"died February 17. 1678; the captivity
I of the man In the Iron mask lasted 31
years, from February. 1673, to Novero
ber. 1703."
The significant silence that prevailed
once Möllere was regarded ns dead and
burled, the foul slanders that were
' spread abroad shortly afterward and.
finally, the destruction of all Mollere's
posthumous works and the strange
disappearance of every single line of
his writing point to a'sinister oblect.
