SPOTTER BADLY BEATEN. S. H. Thinwall, the North Dakota Enforcement league agent, who did some under cover work in Arthur two years ago to get evidence against an alleged blind pig, was badly beaten up in Minot a few nights ago. The booze detective was attacked on the street on a Sunday night following church services and when found hours later had been horribly beaten about the head and body. Thinwall had preached at a Minot church the eve ning before and during his talk had made a bitter attack on Minot officials and officers of Ward county. At a trial at Sidney two years ago, Thinwall testified that he disguised, himself as a tramp and bought booze at a certain place in Arthur. Several Poplar citizens were witnesses at this same trial. OIPPOLD GOES TO PITTSBURG. G. J. Dippold, the popular pitcher and outfielder of the Poplar club, has signed a contract to go with the Pitts burg Pirates in the National league next season.

MALTA BABY NARROWLY ESCAPES INSTANT DEATH Little Tot Thrown Twenty-five Feet by Locomotive and Escapes with Severe Shaking Up. What is considered one of the most miraculous escapes from death ever chronicled in this vicinity was the ac cident that happened last Friday night when the little 14-mnnths-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Facey was hit by the locomotive on No. 4 and the little lad hurled for 25 feet through space, only to be badly bruised and shaken up as a result of his trip in the air, says the Malta Call of last week. Mrs. Facey had prepared some choice sweet corn for the evening meal and had concluded to let some neigh bors share in the treat. She left home or a few moments to deliver the roast ing ears and while she was gone the baby toddled over to the tracks and before any warning could be given, No. 4 came down and only for the fact that Engineer Richard L. Mur phy saw the baby and applied the emergency brakes, would have struck the child full speed. The parents brought the youngster over to the Great Northern hotel where a physician immediately waited upon it and after a careful diagnosis, announced that no bones were broken and that Tom Jr., had a fair chance to recover. Latest advices from the family home where the child was later taken states that he is recovering nicely and it sis not thought at this time that he will sustain any permanent injuries as a result of the accident. BILL INTRODUCED TO STOP IMMIGRATION Washington, August 21.—A bill to stop all immigration for two years, and a bill to deport all aliens who withdrew their first papers to escape military service during the war, was introduced yesterday by Chairman Al bert Johnson of the house immigra tion committee. After the end of the two-year sus pension period, aliens would be en titled to admission to the United States only under a passport or on written declaration to become an American citizen. They would be re quired to register annually until citi zenship was conferred. Fed exceptions to the prohibition of immigration for two years are per mitted by the bill. Adoption of the bill would mean, its framers say, literal fulfillment of the so-called "gentlemen's agreement" be tween the United States and Japan with respect to immigration and would keep out Japanese coolies. Under the Root-Tokihara agreement, Japan is obligated to send no coolies to this country, hut, it is charged that the records disclose that they ar rive by the thousands, with passports as merchants, students, and the like. Once here, it is alleged, they remain, send for "picture brides," rear fami lies and their children become citizens of the United States by right of birth. Representative Johnson says the re quirement that aliens landing at Amer ican ports must have passports with a time limit will break up the great inflow of foreigners. After taking out papers, aliens must remain here five years for. final cit izenship, with a time allowance off for knowledge of the elements of the American plan of government and pro ficiency in the English language. If an alien does not require citizenship in eight years he is sent home. HINSDALE RANCHER IS DEAD FROM INJURIES Young Homesteader Dies From Injur ies Received in Unknown Man ner, Possibly Foul Play. Gus Klind, the young Hinsdale home steader who was brought to the Glas gow hospital last week suffering from exposure and skull fracture, died Sat urday afternoon, never regaining con sciousness. The case is more or less shrouded in mystery as the young man was not discovered until Tuesday eve ning and it is thought that he was injured some time Sunday. He was suffering from a fracture at the base of the skull and the authorities were unable to determine whether he had met with an accident or had been the victim of foul play. The deceased leaves a father and mother and several sisters and broth ers. The body was shipped to Hins dale for burial. NAVY RECRUITING OFFICER HERE SEPT 9TH AND 10TH Joseph L.

WOLF POINT WINS STATE BALL HONORS Wolves Win Two out of Three From Cut Bank, Winning State Base ball Championship. Wolf Point, Augast 24.—Wolf Point won the third game of the series with Cut Bank and with it state baseball honors, repeating the score of the first game, 9 to 2. Cut Bank won yerster day's game 5 to 3. The visiting play ers fought every inch of the route and is the best team that has played here this season. The Wolves won through hard time ly hitting and Rook's brilliant pitch ing. Rachac, winner of yesterday's game, was sent into repeat today, but was relieved in the sixth by Hall. The scoring was all done in three innings. In the first, after Pete East man was retired at third base, Captain George Eastman hit the first ball for three basses. This was fol lowed by a single, a walk and Hand ler's three bagger. This gave three runs. In the sixth Cut Bank's first two batters were retired on a double play but they scored one run on two base hits by Sterner and Heising. In their half the Wolves counted six on four singles and two walks and an er ror. Cut Bank scored one in the ninth on the only walk Rook allowed and a pair of singles.

Wolf Point now goes to Minot for three games and then finishes the season with three games against Minot here. GLASGOW DIVISION POINT FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION Helena, Mont., August 28th.—Divi sion of the state into four districts for the purpose of better handling the problem of highway construction was one of the accomplishments of the ex ecutive committee of the commission in its meeting at the capitol Wed nesday.

FREE VACCINE FOR • FLU PREVENTATIVE Stuff iMade in Montana to Be Dis tributed by State Board of Health. Helena, Mont.—Free lipo-vaccine for the prevention of influenza will soon be ready for the inoculation of all per sons in Montana who wish it, accord ing to an announcement made by the state board of health following the return of Dr. E. D. Hitchcock, state bacteriologist, who has been doing research work at the Mayo clinic at Rochester, Minn., and in the laboratory of the state board of health in the University of Minnesota. This is one of the precautions taken by the board of health to lessen the effect of the expected return of the influenza epidemic this winter. Other moves will be the mobilization of the physicians of the state through the medical association and the mobiliza tion of nurses through the Red Cross. Physicians and health officers gen erally predict a return of the epidemic but they believe there will be fewer cases and that these will be milder in form. It is expected, however, that pneumonia will follow in some instan ces. The vaccine supplied in Montana will be manufactured from cultures taken from patients in this state. Dr. Hitch cock states that while the influenza organism is of the same species in all the states, its virulence differs accord ing to the locality, and the vaccine used here will be suited to the condi tions existing in this region. Cases of influenza already are ap pearing, according to reports made to Dr. John J. Sippy, state epidemiol ogist. Nothing approaching epidemic conditions has appeared, but these sporadic cases are considered signifi cant of the trend. Great advances have been made in the methods of manufacturing influ enza vaccine, Dr. Hitcheok says, and he believes many lives will be saved as a result of the adoption of the improved systems. One important feature of the new plan is that one inoculation now will do the work. Formerly three were required. The new plan was develop ed largely through the efforts of Dr, E. C. Rosenow of the Mayo clinic at Rochester. The cultures are kept in oil instead of in a saline solution and it is said to be possible to give a pa tient ten times "the former amount without producing a constitutional re action. It also is believed that the one inoculation will immunize a person for a longer period than was possible un der the former method. The vaccine will be supplied free in any quantity to physicians and health officers, according to Dr. W. F. Cogs well, secretary of the state board of health. A provision will be made that it be administered free to citizens, and that reports be made to the board of all inoculations and the results therefrom. Dr. Hitchcock, who will be in charge of the manufacture of the influenza vaccine here, conducted similar work during the epidemic last winter for the government. He was at that time in charge of the naval laboratory at Bremerton, Wash., and in addition to the manufacture of vaccine conducted research and experimental work on the isolation of the influenza organism. The results of his work were highly commended by Dr. George A. McCoy, director of the United States hygienic laboratory at Washington, D. C., who set forth Dr. Hitchcock's theories in a bulletin. Dr. McCoy considered them thennost important contribution on the subject. On his recent mission and work in the great Minnesota laboratories, Dr. Hitchcock picked up many interest ing new laboratory procedures which will increase the facilities and conven ience of his department here. He in vites the physicians of the state to avail themselves of the better service he will be able to offer. TAKES FRENCH BRIDE. Lieut. Carl Hammerness, well known GRAIN YIELD IN COUNTY LARGER THAN EXPECTED farm near glasgow threshes thirty-one bushels to the acre; average yield throughout county will be from three to four bushels. Hinsdale boy who is still serving his j country in France, was joined in mar- j riage to a French girl on July 12, | the culmination of a romance which j began several months ago in that coun try. Carl is now stationed at Bor deaux, France, and expects to sail for home some time in September.— Hinsdale Tribune. LOSES LIFE IN RUNAWAY. John Aasen, who recently returned from overseas service in France, met death last week in a fearful runaway accident while hauling lumber to his home from Malta. Aasen left Malta with one of the first bunches of Phil lips county boys and while serving in the trenches was stricken with spinal meningitis. He returned to his home this spring after eleven months spent in a hospital. FOREST FIRES SWEEP WESTERN MONTANA Five Thousand Men Put Up Heroic Fight in an Effort to Save Towns in Path of Flames. Missoula, Montana, August 27.— Five thousand men, composing the fire fighting forces of the forest service, were waging a drawn battle today against hundreds of forest fires sweeping over Montana and nothern Idaho, with no prospect of controlling the flames further than to save what soever towns may be in their path until rain intervenes. This estimation of the situation was made at forest service headquarters here today, where it was said that despite the refusal of federal troops to aid in the fight against the flames, no shortage of men is feared, civil ian recruits filling the daily vacancies in the ranks of the fighters. The most dangerous fire reported today was the Deep Creek blaze, sweeping into the southern end of the Bitter Root forest from Idaho yester day. A sheet of flames a mile wide spread over five miles of Montana land after crossing the divide. It proved impossible to hold the fire at Blue Joint creek and it advaneecd to the head of Coal creek, where it is now burning. While an effort is be ing made to hold the blaze on the south end, there was believed to be little chance of checking it on the north side. Fighters are being hur ried to this blaze from all other Bit ter Root fires. The Canyon creek fire in the Sal mon mountain district of the Bitter Root forest is burning fiercely over 800 acres of timber. Four fires in the Beaver ridge re gion of the Lolo forest joined into a huge blaze ten miles wide, sweeping across the mountains from Lolo Hot Springs, despite all efforts to stop it. - Fair progress is being made in the Clearwater forest, with the danger ous Arogrande blaze held within con fines established by forestry crews. An immense fire on Roey Ridge is be ing held on the south and west, on an eight mile line, from crossing into the valuable Lolo watershed. The Goose creek fire is burning in a threat ening manner, while several blazes are smoking up in a manner to indi cate that they are very serious. Reports from the Kootenai forest are favorable. The Nelson Siding fire on Steamboat creek in the Coeur d'-, Alene forest, is uncontrolled and spreading very rapidly. It was stat ed that a fighter had been fatally in jured there, but no report had been received at district headquarters.' The School gulch fire near Boze man has developed into one of the worst in the district, burning beyond hope of control. Messages have been received from headquarters of district No. 2 at Den ver, asking the return of some of the forestry officials who came here to assist in directing the fire fighting operations, as it was declared that they are urgently needed in the for ests of Wyoming and Colorado. KILLED BY LIGHTNING. J. W. Roycroft, a barber residing at Westby in Sheridan county, was struck and instantly killed by light ning at his farm home near Comer town during a severe storm there last week. Deceased was 34 years of age and leaves wife and family. Threshing in Valley county is well under way and from reports being re j ceived the yields in most sections of | the county will range from one and a j half to nine bushels with an average yield of three to four bushels through Crops in the vicinity of Avondale and Baylor are better than first expected. out the county. Yields are probably not as heavy as in former years, but then this year weather conditions were not so favor able. Herman Siewing, near Glasgow,, reports 31 bushels of Macaroni wheat to the acre. Farmers living south of Tampico are threshing at an average of 10 bushel of wheat to the acre. The people near Opheim and Roan wood are claiming the largest yield per acre in the county. Right here we would like to say for the benefit of the people who are in clined to be pessimistic that they should visit the commercial club rooms and take a glimpse of the sheaves and threshed grains that are there await ing to be displayed at the one-day agricultural exhibit to be held here Labor Day, September 1st. The quality of grains being harvest ed and threshed this year are excep tional. The elevators are paying in most cases for No. 1 grade and in some instances a premium on wheat. Valley county is noted for raising the best milling wheat west of the Mis sissippi river and this year more than proves that fact. In spite of drought conditions the farmers of the county are summer fal lowing more land than before, which only convinces the man who is uncer tain of the future of this county that if the farmer did not have faith he would not be so persistent. Alfalfa will be the leading crop in Valley county before another five years have passed by. This year a number of farmers are increasing their acreage nearly double and many others who never grew alfalfa are placing their land in shape to raise it. The alfalfa seed grown this year is the same as the wheat quality. The best ever produced in the county. There has been no live stock ship ped out of Glasgow to feeding ranges in other states because of insufficient feed here. In fact, over 40 cars^of cattle and horses were shipped into Valley county for feeding purposes. There will no doubt be a few farm ers who will find it necessary to buy some feed so that they might hold their stock over this winter, but the county as a whole has a large amount plan on returning next spring. , ' la ^' 011 ^, n . u But ve ^ f f People are eav.ng the county and most of those leavmg BIDS WANTED ON LOCAL POSTOFFICE SITE Will Be Received by Inspector at Havre up to Sept. 27—For Per iod of Five Years.
