BfS Old Ways To New Business Who would gainsay the truth of the statement that we who care to do so may.profit by the experi ences of others? Happy, then, is the man who has a merchandising problem and is irise enough to follow m the footsteps of someone who has fac ed and solved the same problem with newspaper advertising sup plementing other forms of sell mg. Copy the other fellow's adver tising? No, indeed! But it's only good business judgment to copy the general outline of his plan. For instance, one of the old and tried methods of marketing a product more quickly and in greater volume is to mail out re prints of newspaper publicity that is scheduled to appear at an early date or has recently appear ed. This doubles the iorce of the impression, brings the message a second time to the eyes of the prospect, and convinces him of sincerity. Your message in The Carbon County News paves the way effec tively for sales letters and the personal efforts of your organiza tion.

AUTO LICENSE LAW HAS NEW WRINKLES Ski Small to Have Charge of Werk Under* Warden—Don't Forget Extra 91. Eddie Whalen was fined $26 before Police Judge Chaa. Wilson la»t Fn for disturbing the peace. imty Attorney Emily Sloan filed a complaint in police court on Monday charging Tony Roasi with assault upon John Q^ls- Chadis was ae vcrely wounded and t«b-ap byRoasi htj Washoe a abort time ago. Roasi was also fined $86 for oaring fire arm*. Don't forget to send Austin B. Middleton, warden of the state peni tentiary, an extra $1 with your reg ular automobile license fee. The last legislative assembly, in making a transfer of the handling of the motor license department from the office of the secretary of state to the prison warden, added many new wrinkle* to the procedure and one of them is a $1 fee to be charged by the warden for the issuance of a certificate of ownership. This certificate of owner ship must be filled out by the auto mobile owner but the blaake w01 be furnished by the warden. Ask him for one. The motor vehicle department of the State of Montana was transferred to the state prison Tuesday. Ski Small, former sheriff of Valley county, will be in charge of the registration and issuance of license. He has been occupied for the past month in pre paring for the transfer of the office equipment and has prepared a place at the prison for the handling of plates. The last legislature provided for 17 new forms to make out in connection with the licensing of the automobile* of Montana. Mr. Small has these forms in the printer's hands and wtdi be ready for business within a very short time, A saving is expected to be made in the matter of labor by reason of the change but the legislature has added much to the expense of printing new forms and the postage to be used in mailing blanks and the license plates. Mr. small has estimated that the postage bill will be double what it has been in the past because of the increased postage rate, the increased weight of the license plates to be used in 1926 and the necessity for return ing certificates of ownership to the various persons registering automo biles. Application^ for licenses should be addressed to Austin B. Middleton, Dmsi; j Lodge, Mont. The rate for licenses is the some as last year. The only change is an extra dollar for owner's certificate.

I Educational week was fittingly ob served by the public schools of this city, week before last and many parents visited the various depart ments where they were courteous ly received by the teed ■■r» in charge. Nnight session* were held also to give those who were unable to vis it during the day an opportunity of seeing the efficient work that is be ing done by the tea. tiers and the splendid progrès* that is being made by the pupils. Not a single complaint was heard. Every visitor seemed to have only words of praise for the marked inter est the teachers were taking in the welfare of the pupils under their sup ervision, and but words of commenda tion for the internet the pupils were taking in their studies and the pro gress they were making under the careful direction of acme members of what is perhaps the strongest, most earnest and moat competent faculty in the history of the Red Lodge schools. Everyone ni well pleased; every one conceded that we have the very best schools here to be found in the state, but— Who is responsible? That's the question now before the house. We repeat, who is responsible? Well, Superintendent R. M, Porter OttUt be considered as being very to "blame". He is an able school naan, is eminently well fitted for. the positon he occupies, is a hard worker and untiring in his efforts in keeping our schools in the enviable po sition they now occupy. He demands and seems to get the very best work out of those under his supervision at all times. Then there are Principal H. B. Field of the Roosevelt; Principal J. A. Thomason of the Field School; Miss Estelle Provinse, Principal of the Washington; Misa Florence McIntosh, Prindpal of the Jefferson and Miss Abigail Doran of the Lincoln school Each of them seem to be working on a twenty-four hoar schedule judging fltnh the effective work they do, the inspiration they seem to - radiate to the teachers and pupils under their charge Mid the esteem in which they are held by pupils and patrons. No, none of that quintet can escape re spo risibility, and, be it nid in passing that there la not one of them who ia not worthy of and well able to hold a high«« and more lucrative position than she or he now occupies.

But we almost forgot the Board of Education—aren't they somewhat to blame too? Those flv* business and professional men who have their own personal work to do but never too busy to attend board meetings, see to it that every thing is going along smoothly and that every need of the schools is promptly me$. They may not like to see their names brought into this controversy but literature love* detail and never falters when duty calls. They are Attorney H, A. Simmons, Dr. P. J. Sweeney, J. P. Plunkett, Harry Bailey and J. J. Ger ondale. And then consider if yon please that faithful soul, the Janitor. How on earth could any school operate with out a janitor who so faithf-.lly acts as custodian of buildings and grounds, keeps the rooms neat and comfortable, the erasers usable and the walks pass able? He is certainly the red cor puscle in the live blood of any school. They are P. C. Hicox, H. T. Bowman and Mr*. L. B. Owen*.

At the present time there are two active Red Cross Nursing Services in Montana, one full time service sup ported entirely by Red Cross Chapter funds and one service financed jointly by Red Cross and other funds. Since September 1, 1919 the Red Cross has inaugurated eighteen Nurs ing Services in Montana. Two of these have been taken over entirely by public funds or other agencies and three in part. Eleven services have been discontinued and practically ail because of lack of funds, showing a need cf even a stronger and more personal response to the Red Cross Nursing program if its activities arc to continue in their full strength. In dividual memberships in the organiza tion is the solution. The Ninth An nual Bed Cross Roll Call began this year on Armistice Day and closed Thanksgiving. It's success will meas ure future Red Cross activities in the state of Montana. Only through a large and solid membership can the Red Cross continue to serve adequate ly those who look to it for aid. Six Montana Chapters carried a Life Saving program during the past summer and a lively interest was shown in the water safety work of the Bed Cross, "j Serve" is the motto of the Junior R e( j Cross and through this ideal 9,466 children in Montana are helping to „,„1^ life healthier and happier for their fellows. Five schools are carry j ng on inter-school correspondence— the phase of the Junior program which has for its aim the strengthen s ng 0 f the bonds of friendship between p eo ^ e no t only of our o*n country 1 , hut also those of other nationalities living in distant parts of the world, Montana Juniors this year filled 409 Christmas boxes for oversea» ehildran The Junior program also Includes clean-up campaigns and other projects 0 f a personal and civic nature, Thirty-four Red Cross Chapters in Montana are carrying on extensive work for ex-service men and their families; eighteen are doing Civilian Relief; two have a Home Hygiene program; one is actively engaged in Aid; thirteen participate in the production work promoted by Volun tw Service, in a* of to to A.

Kent for the popular play "Pollyanna", the Glad Play by Katherine Chisholm Cushing- The edft up to date is composed of Joseph Kent, Roy Reed, H. B. Wlnne, Phil Pollard, Elmer Salo, Monica Plunk ett, Dorothy Davis, Virginia Schwln Katie PagHosettl, Helen Peters and Ramon* Berta. The date of presen tation is Friday December 18, at the Workers' Hall and a special matinee will be gfiven for the children. Theatre-goers are assured that this play is by far the biggest production of the season. Admission prices else where have been two and three dol lars, but the prices in Red Lodge will be os low as possible. Everyone should take advantage of this popular offer ing. The cast has been especially select ed for their types as well as their ability. This is a fitting play to close the old year of 1926 and open up the New Year. Don't fail to see this and be made glad. At the annual business session of the Montana Association of Commer cial Club Secretaries held at Butte this week, L. E. Hathaway was elected one of the directors of the association. Mr. Hathaway was form erly secretary of the elvi« organisa tion at Red Lodge but is at present secretary of the Bozeman Commercial Club. be Forest Research At the Fire Line Missoula, Mont.—For five day* this summer, up in the Idaho Panhandle, assistant silvirculturlst H. T. Gisborne of the Northern Rocky Mountain For est Experiment Station lived on terms of unenviable intimacy with the swift spreading Rode forest fire, taking frequent measurements of humidity, temperature, wind, and moisture of forest fuel* as the Are raged. In the course of these somewhat hazardous observations on behalf of the Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture, Gisborne noted three main obstacles to prompt control of fires. The readiness with which dead trees, standing or down, increased the spread of fire was first remarked. Equally striking was the important part played by the wind, even when the fire was burning against the wind and downhill. Volume of fuel had also a remarkable effect. Within a circle of a few rods some parts of the fire burned fiercely, others very quietly, each influenced by no other factor than the amount of fuel nailable. , CONGREGATIONAL LADIES SALE NETS A NEAT SUM The Pillow Case Sale and Merch ant's Lunch given by the Congrega tional ladies at the church yesterday afternoon netted them $121. The committee in charge of the pillow case sale was composed of Mrs. James Leslie, Mrs, C. C. Rowan and Mrs. O. J. Simmons. The luncheon served at noon consisted of hot roast heef sandwiches, pickles, coffee and pie. The luncheon committee included Mrs. A. B. Cooley, Mrs. E. B. Provinse, Mrs. A. L. Croonquist, Mrs. H S, Croonquist and Mrs. R. M. Porter. J. M. Sawyer Company Adds 2 New Stores •-The J. M. Sawyer Company, Incor porated, last week purchased the Polish Trading Company at Roundup which adds another store to their chain of grocery houses in Montana. Stock is being invoiced today. The grocery department of the Yta lowstone Grocery Company at Sidney will be taken over the first of the year by the chain concern, which makes nineteen stores on the list of the J. M. Sawyer Company. in the A Protest 18 It has come to our attention that there is to be a hearing before the Railroad and Pub lic Service Commission at Billings on De cember 8, regarding a proposed bus fran chise from Billings to Red Lodge. This should bring a storm of protest from the business people and the citizens ©f this community, for the granting of this fran chise would undoubtedly result eventually in disrupting the passenger train service that Red Lodge is now receiving. In times of bad weather it would mean that Red Lodge would be without any service, as there are times when these large buses could not make the trip. Besides, the large buses are destructive to the roads and the bus lines pay no taxes for the up-keep of the roads. In addition to this, it might result in the closing of the mines, as the Northwestern tl* Improvement Company is holding on to all the railroad orders for coal until such time J as the mines are fully commercialized. This, at least, would mean the mining of leas coal. This should also bring a protest from the Miners Union.
