VOL 4, N) 51 CUT BANK, TETON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JULY. 4 1913 12,00 THE YEAR LOOKS LIKE BANNER CROP " Outlook on Opening of July Better Thin on Any Previous Year It is the unanimous opin ion of those who have resid ed here since the farming era began that the outlook for a record harvest is brighter than it has ever before been at a corresponding period. The crop is farther ad vanced than the 1912 crop on July 4. A number of the early sown flax fields are now coming into bloom, winter wheat is in the head and the spring cereals are advancing rapidly. Weather conditions for the month of June could hardly be improved upon. There was considerable warm and dry weather until about the middle of the month. About the fifteenth of the month a change occurred and it has rained almost daily since that time. The record for the »month in this community, according to Observer C. N. Thomas, was 2.75. Ideal crop weather pre vails with the opening of Ju ly and the grain crops are shooting upward like a sky rocket. Those from outside the state who drift in here and local people who have visited at many points within the state say that nowhere is the outlook so bright as right here in the Cut Bank com munity, Elevator for Ethridge ,To The Pioneer Press : Ethridge, July 3.—E.

May Abandon the Fast Mail Seattle, June 27.— L. C. Gilman, assistant to the presdeut of the G.N. r;ilway, with headquarters in Seat tl) yesterday received iformation fiom the head office, in St. Paul tlat the company was considering dropping the fast mail train from Chicago, which makes the run be tveen St. Paul and Seattle in 47 hrs. and 30 minutes. All mail would tien be carried on the regular pas sjnger trains. The Great Northern nail service, headed by W. S. Bak trville is opposed to the proposed j.lan of the postoffice department to pay the railroads on the basis of a tpace measurement instead of weight Exciting Rush For Tracts Land in Headlight Valley is just about as valuable as radium this verv minute and there is no such phrase as "going down." Wednes day morning at nine o'clock was the me set for the making of settle ment on any open tracts within the area restored to the public domain •ecently. There were but two tracts, one containing 80 acres and the oth er containing 120 acres. The scram ble for these two tracts, according to eyewitnesses, contained elements of the sensational and humorous. Shacks had been built for some iine previously by the rivals for the precious parcels, watches were set with the generally regarded official time pieces, all-night vigils were kept to determine whether any bold prairie pailadin would become a ude tresspasser. As the hour of nine approached on the above date tile knots of people, out of curiosi ty and iu the capacity of witnesses . assembled near or ou the tracts and at about the fateful hour shacks commenced to move with more than ordinary rapidity. On one of the tracts au enthusiastic squatter was tearing up the stubborn glebe with a plow and six horses,had a notice of settlement up and had his shack in place about the time others were thinking of moving on,so they say. There will probably be a cou ple of lively law suits before it is determined '"who's who." Y ou skould W orry and Find the Man of Mystery A prize of $5.00 will be given by John llall to tlis person wo tinds the Mysterious Man between tin hours of 3 aud 4 o'clock today. The rules of the contest are as follows: A committee of three are the only ones who know who know who the Mysterious Man is. He himself does not know. Anyone in town is liable to be the man, and any man woman or child may take auy man to the committee and claim the re ward. Anyone properly approach ed should not refuse to go. In ap proaching one supposed to be the Mysterious Man these words should be used: You are the Mysterious Man; come with me until t claim my reward." And upon bringing the supposedly Mysterious Man be fore the committee the following language should be used: "l have found the Mysterious Man and bave come to claim my reward." The commtttee consisting of John Hall, F. II. Worden and T. E, Lewis will be at Hall's Hardware on the time indicated above. The Mysterious Man is not six fee' tall, nor is he five. He is not 70 years old and he is not 30. His hair is not gray or white. Iiis weight is not 300, nor is it 110. His habits are his own; lie will not be barefooted and you will tind him on the street. LITTLE THINCS THAT COUNT Here is a Dime. Save it. Not a large amount, you say? No, you're right, yet ten of them will start a Bank Account. It's the little things that count in this life. On a homestead near Cut Bank in 1912 from 6 bu. of seed 300 bu. of flax were produced. Your Opportunity has come today if you will learn the value of little things. Philip D. Armour knew the value of little things. They say he packed every thing but the last breath of a hog utilizing the waste in the manufacture of by-products made him wealthy. Dimes in the bank produce Dollars just assure as the seed sown on the rich ground or Headlight Valley brings forth an abundant harvest. Then deposit the Dimes in the "Little Bank on the Corner" and watch the growth. FARMERS STATE BANK JOHN S. TUCKER. P™,. F. H. WORDEN. CuUr MILL MAN VISITS TOWN Kansas Man May Decide to Embark in Industry Here W. A. Wright of Delpbos, Ivans., a thriving town in the Soloman val ley in the Sunflower State, spent the •first days of the week in Cut Bank. Mr. Wright is a miller to the man ner born, his grandfather and fath er having engaged in the industry in the above named state. ' The Montana lure caught young Mr. Wright some time ago and he decided to look up the best towns in the most promising grain<belt of northern Montana—where Uncle Sam gives the big rainfall figures. Cut Bank was represented to him as one of the north country's most promising towns. He was cordially received here, taken by auto thru the valley north cf the city by IÎ. C. Kassmussen, and assured by the merchants and others that if he de cided to locate here he would have the hearty cooperation of all, that a site would be donated for the loca tion of the mill and that his product would be handled exclusively, pro vided it was up to standard. Mr. Wright is not a promoter and asked for nothing but the coopera tion of the citizens, a site and a reasonable rate for power when the municipal plant is built. He left on Wednesday for Havre and assured the citizens that he would return to Cut Bank without fail. Ile appear ed to be greatly impressed with the possibilities here and with the spirit manifested by the citizens. A Wolf Tale The old fuzzy plains days haven't completely gone 'with the flowers of yesteryear.' The Galata Journal of last week recites a hair-raising adventure of Capt. Toole of the Sweet Grass Hills, with a large wolf that had been menacing stock. The Captain mounted a fleet charger and with trusty rope gave chase to the predatory beast. He succeeded in lasooing the wolf, but a snap of it» teeth cut the rope as clean as a shears. Nothing daunted, the Cap tain made another try, landing his rope effectively, and before the ani mal had time to cut it the Captain had wheeled about and was off on a gallop over the hills, his quarry at the end of the rope. Arriving at a deserted cabin, he dismounted, procured a club and killed his cap tive, which measured six feet from tip to tip. FOU SALE. Full blood Holstein Bull register ed. 2 yrs. old.
