Part of theStockholders of the Montase Star Telephone Company beld a meeting in Stephens Hall Tue day afternoon. bet ant enough stock was represented. either by actual holders or by proxy. to do bush nse., so the meeting was adjourned subject tx call by President 1. L. broobs. As directors are to be elected fur the en suing year and reports of officers are to b. made and other important matters to come before the stockholders' meeting, the neat meeting should have a fall representation. It takes tot shares present or represented by written proxy to make a quorum to transact business, and owing to the fact that the stockholders and directors from Poplar and Wolf Poiat were not represent ed. the meeting lacked s lew shares of the rrqussite number. If any of the Stockhold ers cannot attend the neat meeting they should send a writtea or signed prosy by some member who can attend with in streatioe as to voting. etc. The line to date is completed from Culberiton to within a short distance of Redstone. with pay statiosat Homestead. Medicine Lake. Ptentywood and perhaps other points, and has connecteon with the local etchange of the Great Northern Tel ephone Co. at Calbertson thus enabling Culbertson people to telephone to any of these pay stations. The income from the line for the month of L'e cember, igoS. was aproelmately 5So oo, which will of course be increased rapidly as the patrons get used to using the line. A crew of ten men are still working at the Redstone end of the line, though the cold weather of the past two weeks has caused them to stoo work more or less. However the line will be completed to Red stone as quickly as possible~and it is thought that t 4o weeks of fair weather would see it fmni-thed. In an informal discussion by the stock holders present at the meeting Tuesday at was thought advisable to put in an ex change at Culbertson and connect with the business houses and residences here so that a much larger income can be sedured for the line. Most of the basines! houses and a number of residents have already signed an agreement to put in the phones as soon as the Culbertson exchange Is established The Montana Star line so far as complet ed is one of the best in the country, the poles and wire used being of the best and the other equipment being up to date and first class in every respect. The line is costing some what more than was estimated at first, but the income of the line when comple ed will be amply sufficient for a good return on the money invested. The officers and directors have done yeoman service in getting the line completed as far as they have and de serve great credit Expenses have been kept down as much as possible and all the work on the line has been well done so that the coat of msintainance and repair will be small in the future and the net in come will be greater than for a line poorly constructed.

Secretary Wilson says. "One of the ob jects of the law is to inform the consumer of the presence of certain harmful drugs in media." The law requires that the amount of chloroform. opium. morphine. and other habit formang drugs be stated on the label of sch tbottle. The manufactur ers of Chamberlain's Lough Remedy have always claimned that their remedy did s contain any of these drugs, and the truth of this clas is tiow fully peeves, as so r mention of them is'made on the label.
