From September 1 to 8 will be tak en up in court with expert and motion matters, and unless Senator Wheeler should ask continuance, his trial would be called for September 16 or 20. Judge M.

In this case an outside judge will be called in from some other court district, probably of the midwest. Coolidge Philosophy And Doctrine "Men do not make laws. They but discover them. Laws must be justi fied by something more than the will of the majority. They must rest on the eternal foundation of the majori ty.' "Statutes must appeal to more than material welfare. Wages won't satis-1 fy, be they ever so large. Nor hous- ( es; not lands; nor coupons, though | they fall thick as the leaves of au turan. Man has a spiritual nature. Touch it, and it must respond as the magnet responds to the pole." "Do the day's work. If it be to pro tect the rights of the weak, whoever objects, do it. If it be to help a pow erful corporation better to serve the people, whatever the opposition, do that. Expect to be called standpatter, but don't be a standpatter. Expect to be called a demagogue, but don't be a demagogue. Don't hesitate to be as revolutionary as science. Don't hesitate to be as reactionary as the multiplication table." "Don't expect to build up the weak by tearing down the strong. Don't hurry to legislate. Give administra tion a chance to catbh up with legisla tion," "There is no problem so great but that somewhere a man is being raised up to meet it. There iS no moral standard so high that the people can not be raised up to meet it." "It is only when men begin to wor ship that they begin to grow." themselves or in their institutions. I Let him who doubts them look about ' "There is no need for Americans to ' lack confidence'in themselves or ini j I j j j him.' "It is not a change that is needed in our Constitution and laws so much j «s there is need of living in accord-1 ance with them. The law of life, the law of prog-1 ress, is the law of obedience, the law | of service." » / Dr. Tichenor, Osteopathic physi cian.

The trains travel 15 minutes | i apart and make stops only to change creW3 an( j enjgines at division termi i na ] S- On this division changes are muc ] e a j Avery, Alberton, Deer Lodge Three Forks, Every facility of the great railway system is placed at the disposal of the immensely valuable raw silk ship ments. The trains were on the dock when the Japanese steamship tied up and the moment the ship was made fast removal of the silk began. It took one hour and 46 minutes to trans fer the silk from ship to trains and do all the necessary checking. The cars are special silk refrigera tors, specially equipped for running at high speed. Time of the fast trans continental trains is beaten in making the transfer from coast to coast. The raw silk, which comes in three colors, pink, black and yellow, is care fully packed in small cartons. There are two layers of oiled silk and one of oiled paper covering the skeins. Each small package has a value of about $30,000. Shipments are handl ed by regular train crews, trainmaster in charge, necessary, as raw silk only has one market. Only a slowing down as the trains passed over the curves and trestle outside of the Milwaukee station marked the passing of the millions of dollars' worth of merchandise through Butte. Every hour saved in making deliv ery of the shipment in New York cuts off several thousand dollars' insur ance cost. , re with a No guards BOYD ITEMS Mrs. Anna Williams was a Red Lodge caller on Monday. » Mack Anderson and F, C.

To those who are the actual bread earners of the land it is web that one day be set apart for recreation and twenty-four hours release from the hum and burr of ma chinery, to escape for a time that seething, swarming throng of toilers as they trudge wearily to and from their labors, Moreover, the brain and brawn of the country the work ing masses who earn their every penny by the honest sweat on their brow- and by an ut ter exhaustion that accompanies their physi cal being at the close of the day. And Labor Day, if put to proper use, can be termed in higher acceptance than merely the meaning of the phrase. It can be made a day of gala celebration for the producers of the wealth of the world. This fair day of Autumn can be dealt with as the harvesters observe their Indian summer, and anticipat ed for many moons as a time of games, poli ties, conversation, or a complete rest, physi cally :*nd mentally, and possessing a "peace that passeth all understanding." The pur pose derived means far more than the days activities are concerned. It leads beyond the comprehension of the mind which morally and socially, with loftier aspirations, and purer thought, and a perfect contentment, at least it creates a mighty resolve to forever protect our country's enduring free constitu tion, and loyal to its stainless flag. i , Paul Anderson and Myrtle Cassidy motored to Edgar on Thursday even ing.
