CUT BANK PIONEER PRESS
VOL 5, NO 2 CUT BANK, TETON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JULY 25. 1913 *2.00 THE YEAR Honked and Whizzed By There were expressions of disap pointment and sarcasm and a sense of resentment of what was consider ed a slight, to the town when the A. A. A. tourists whizzed up Main St., turned up Broadway and scooted onward in a wraith of dust. The folks were out to make the coining of the tourists a sort of a half holiday and while no forir.al , preparations were made it was hoped that they might stop a f e w moments and hold social converse with our people and note our buil ding activity. But the tourists were on last stretçh of a long and tire some run, under a scorching sun and over eleven hundred miles of austy prairie roads, and no doubt were anxious to reach their goal at the, earliest possible moment. However, they did pause to chat with a dele " gati'm of lady picuicers who storm ed the "bridge" over the river and forced the gallant «.baffeurs to stop and visit. One popular young worn" an was rewarded for her daring by being presented wiih a handsome pennant as a memento. About the time the last cars i n ' the reliability run passed thru the palatial special train that paralelled the tourists all the way from the cities steamed in. The train was equipped with kingly luxuries and one of the attractive features was the printing plant, installed in the pow er car, on which was printed the "Blazer" a daily paper containing accounts of the trip each day, photo illustrations, humorous skitB and a well concocted assortment of clever boosting, such as Louis Hill's press agents cftn grind out on any occasipu. The American Association touring prize went to Dr. J. D. Clark o f Dulutb, driver of a Locomobile, which ended the run with a perfect score. The Glidden trophy was a warded to the three Metz cars, two . Hupmobiles an 1 a Krit car all fin ished with perfect scores and in the draw the Hupmobile was the winner. Johu G. Bair turned over the keys to the customs office at Great Falls to A. ,T. King, a well known and popnlar Ivalispell man, on Wed nesday. Mr. Bair will return t. o Choteau to practice law. Messrs, O'Mahoney' Murray dud Pogieba, present clerks in the office, will be retained under Mr. Iviug. Leave your order now for Rasp berries, Apricots and Peach Plums, for canning. This is the height of the season for these fruits and for the next ten days will be at their best. We will make you the lowest prices possible & We also carry Fruit Jars, Jar Caps and Rubbers In our Grocery Department you will find a new and clean stock of the best grade of goods. Right prices at all times HELPHREY'S CASH STORE We're Better Off Henry Shoknecht, auditor of the Libby Lumber Co., spent Saturday with the corps of hustlers at the local branch. Mr. Shoknecht was on his,, way home from Billings after attending a very interesting convention of the Montana Lumber men's Association. Asked as to the general outlook in the territory in which his company has interests, Mr. Shoknecht was inclined to be optimistic but was of the opinion that slow progress would be made in railway work contemplated by the Milwaukee and Soo in the im mediate future and expressed the opinion that it would be better for all concerned if this work were held up for a couple of years. The buildiug of new railways thru this end of the county will result in the cutting up of territory, the platting out of new towns that will be small and struggling for years, whose merchant8 wi n not be able to carry 1 complete 8toc k 8i but at the same | t j me , t will effect towns like Cut j jj an |^ w bose business interests are 1 expanding constantly and giving their customers an opportunity to select from a big assortment. If this territory is not cut to pieces within the next few years Cut Bank will have reached a stage where it will not be seriously effected by smaller towns that will grow up on the new railway lines." An Awful Haul Mountain trout was a common commodity hare the latter part of last week and if Messrs. Grina, Brown, Hulbush, Halvorson and Taft are caught with that chesty feeling on théir persons they should be excused, for they did make the biggest catch ever recorded in local trout annals, so let honor, glory and a little envy of their fellowmen be their portiou. The five tnerry fiish ermen r.bove named substituted deeds for words after their arrival home and instead of assembling a crowd on the curbstone and regal ing them with finny yarns they quietly opportioned their catch a mong their friends in the city and these fortunate ones will swear that a few fried trout are more nourish ing and sustaining than an equal number of stories about the manner of snaring them. Ole Grina has a secret which he is only telling to a few, to the effect that Doc Hulbush slept out on the hillside one night, for the benefit of science, we sup pose, iu the absence of any other clue. Full details may leak out later. Turner Passes Dr. S. R. Turner is back from Helena after successfully running the gauntlet of the 'qnizzes' of the state board of dental examiners. There were 28 persons who took the state examination and 11 failed to pass. Dr. Turner has opened his offices in the Jacobson block and will give the practice of his pro fession his constant attention. The board adopted new and more stringent rules for those who aspire to practice dentistry in Montana. Under the new rule a candidate who falls under 75 per cent on three of the subjects on which he is ex amined, and fails to receive a grade of 85 per cent on operating will be refused a certificate. Secretary Lane is evincing the keenest interest in the homesteaders of the West and in this he differs greatly frbia his predecessor, Sec. Fisher, who went to the Cabinet from a Chicago office building. Sec. Lane wants more help to clear up the land cases pending for years, he wants to know more about reclama tion work in this section of the West, and wants the homesteaders to get all the best of it in handling what is left of the public domain. The Secretary is proving his sin cerity by taking a trip into Mon tana and beyond a doubt it will be of benefit to himself and the home steaders within and outside the re clamation projects in this state. Another Borah Bill The senate public lauds com mittee has favorably reported Sen ator Borah's bill amending the three-year homestead law by pro viding that in lieu of the cultiva tion now required homesteaders may get title after three years' re sidence by showing improvements on their land to the extent of *1.50 for each acre entered. The report was unanimous and Senator Borah expects the bill to pass the senate this session, though in the house it probably will have to wait until next winter uutil general legislatiou is taken up. A contemporary says that recent ly he received a card which con tained the following: "Please send a few copies of the paper contain ing the obituary of my aunt. Also publish the enclosed clipping of the marriage of my niece who lives in Texas. And I wish you would men tion in your local columns, if it does not cost anything, that I have two bull calves for sale. As my subscription is out, please stop my paper. Times is too hard to waste money on newspapers." Wallin Crofts, who is doing car penter work at Browning, was here on Wednesday. Wallin expects to make his home in Cut Bank a little later and the Pioneer Press may have further plans of his to unfold later. Mr: and E. M. Davis are enter taining she former's grandmother from Lisbon N. D.

D., to Midvale, Mont., worked along the right of way here last Saturday, with two sulky and two gang plows, plowing five fur rows on each side of the track. A lawyer has gone out from and a lawyer has come to Valier. The new limb of Blackstoue bears the name of Pool. According to the Valerian the departed legal light had the hookworm—was so tired that he refused to walk to the post office for his paper. "Oh, but he was the slow thing!" comments that paper. After seven years service as sup erintendent of the Kalispell division of the G. N. Ry., having supervision from Cut Bank to Troy, 275 miles; and the Fernie line, W.R. Smih has been promoted to the Cascade divis ion, headquarters at Everett, and will be releived July 22 by John Sesser, from an eastern division. Mr. Smith had 2015 men on the payroll last month and every person al acquaintaince is a friend. The same may be said of the citizens and business men of all the towns along this division, who agree that Bill Smith is always all right aud that he gave the sqare deal. Going to Everett is promotion and we are all glad of that, but sorry to lose our much esteemed old friend. K T;, flowers, a Montana pioneer and for years* connty attorney of Choteau couuty,died last week. He was well known to all old timers in northern Montana. It used to be the proud boast of Choteau citizens that they were ne ver molested by the kuight-errants of the dusty roads, because of their isolation. But since the streaks o f shimmering steel have commenced to stretch that way the town is cen fronted with all the vices that infest towns on railroads. Hoboes are now as common as old shoes around the county seat town. Mayor Hershberg of Choteau has passed the order that the town must undergo a municipal massage, since it has become incorporated and and taken its place among progressive centers. The Mayor iusists that the cleaning be a most thorough one. Mrs. F. H. Worden has been quit ill during the week Strayed—a buckskin mare, brand ed Hench-P and X-Bar, weight a bont 1200, shod all around. Return to L. J. Barrington for reward.

Toole Dead Claudius Bruce Toole, brother of former Governor J. K. Toole, died Saturday morning at the home of his brother in Helena, age 70 years. Mr. Toole came to Helena in the winter of 1866 and remained for a period of two years. Then he mov ed to Kansas and engaged in farm ing and stock raising, lie returned to Helena ten years later and en gaged in farming and stock raising. From 1881 to 1885 he was chief clerk at the Blackfeet Indian agen cy and in 1889 he located at Willow Creek in the Sweet Grass hills an$ devoted his energies to cattle and sheep raising. He was a man of marked individ uality, of genial personality, and commanded the confidence and es teem of all who knew him. He is survived by his wife and three children; Mrs. Claudia Price of Plains, E. B. aud C. L. Toole of Hill county. Not So Wicked, John We hear rumors now and then more or less defined, of schemes for some proposed new county of which this territory would form a part. Hit the first geek who comes to you with a petition for the purpose. You should know by this time that this county division mostly, is for the purpose of giving some group of persons an easy living, or some town wants a county seat. Don't fall for the game. Don't sign any petition. When the time is ripe for county division, the people will have sense enough to know it. In the meantime they should be deceiv ed by plausible stories told for per sonal gain.—Galata Journal. New Law Firm Irwin C. Kartack and Perry M. Sorenson, have leased rooms in the Jacobson block and will open a law office ivithin a few days. The gentle men have been practicing law in St. Paul and hearing of the possibili ties here and our commanding posi tion as the gateway town of t h e Blackfoot, they decided to cast their lot in this rapidly growing town. They are graduates of the Marquete and St. Paul law colleges. Kartaek was formerly rssociated with Ed. II. Payte, who will be remembered by the older railway boys as a former assistant paymaster ou the G. N.but now practicing law in St. Paul. Brown is Better Pioneer Press readers will b e pleased to know that Harry Brown, who was critically ill during the lat ter days of last week, is rapidly on the improve at the present time. The turn for the better came last Saturday afternoon and the patient rallied very rapidly from that time. Iiis friends are hoping to see him back at his place of business before very long. Says Uncle Ira: We fail to see why it is regarded as a lack of refinement to speak of "liver trouble" aud why "li e a r t trouble" is genteel. The liver is per fectly respectable; the troubles the liver gets into are never scandal ous, which can't always be said about affairs of the heart.

Cwk»* Grangers Have Good Time About 150 people, Grangers and their friends, assembled at the pavi lion by the riverside, on Wednesday and enjoyed several hours of infor mal sociability — the best informal number: so most of them say, being the fine picnic dinner that was serv ed by the lady grangers. After dinner a short progam was rendered. Mrs. Garber gave a read ing, a selection was given by G. A . Bell and a reading was given by Addie Maltby. Two very good sel ections by John T. Graham. Music was furnished by the choir. The day's amusements came to a close with a baseball game, without such trimmings as an umpire or a score keeper and some of the older boys displayed high talent at times. It was a pleasant occasion that was keenly enjoyed by all. To Remove Redlight A number of leading wo men of Cut Bank have taken the initiative in a movement to have the redlight resort removed from its present lo cation by legal action. The county attorney will b« ask ed to take the proper legal steps with that end in view, in a petition that already has the signatures of a very large number of women of town and community. An ener getic campaign will be car ried on until the authorities are forced to act. Mrs. A girl was born to Mr. and Geo. Poor on Thursday. A girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. D. W. Ilaulman on July 9th.

Mrs. Ilinote of Great Falls was a guest of Mrs. George Weaver sev eral days of the week. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Horseley have gone to the former's old home in Il linois, in response to the intelligence that a brother met death in an auto wreck. Presbyterian Church: Preaching on next Sabbath morning at Gra ham school house at 11 o'clock and at Cut Bank at 8 o'clock p. m. Com to these services. Two showers of rain; one on Mon day and a heavier one on Tuesday, in the north country, brought much relief to crops and a releif from the intense heat that prevailed for many days. The Marias section is very much in need of a shower, as the heavy June rains that soaked down the Headlight and Pleasant Valley sections skipped the Marias section to a great extent. W inter wheat is ripening in the north section and the copious showers of the above, dates were of great benefit.
