It will lower the labor cost of building. It will live up to every representation. Libby Lumber Company Cut Bank, Montana Cut Bank Pioneer Press Published Weekly Kntered as second cla»s matter August 13, 1903 at the postoffice at Cut Bark. Montana, un der the act of March 8 1879. D. Whetstone. Publisher Subscription, yearly, - - $'2.00 «'strictly ix advance) Display advertising, 28c per column inch Sßecial rate on lame, time contracts To Mother Choteau Hail Mother Choteau! How kindly, just and gener ous are all your dispensations. How tranquil you remain in strife and stress, never fling ing back bitter words to those who accuse you of tak ing to your bosom "court house rings," "plotting poli tical tricksters," "scheming marplots" and kindred evil things. Through many a campaign you have kept your head in the stars and watched the battle with im partial concern. In two or three county division wars you have remained serene and rocked and tended to your knitting and when those who have tried to leave your protecting arms and set up a hosuehold of their own have failed and returned, you have welcomed, them back with a forgiving hug and a seat at the old fireplace. Dear Alma Mater, we • of Cut Bank have a large and lasting affection for yon, for haven't you ever been kind to the ambitious of your children living in this corner of old Teton, in testimony whereof, witness the vote igiven the Cut Bank candi dates in the late primary. If by any fell clutch of. cir cumstance we are obliged to depart from your loving care and establish a new home, we shall exclaim after the manner of the Roman glad iator "Choteau, Choteau, thou hast been a tender nurse to me." ^ A movement will be in augurated this fall to secure a water right on the lower Cut Bank, for the purpose of irrigating a portion of the valley north of town. The Pioneer Press will do all in its power to aid this move ment, believing that efficient private enterprise can handle this matter far more econ omically and more speedily than government time servers. If left to the Gov ernment, a project would not be completed within ten or fifteen years, perhaps; as the history of goverment ir rigation shows that it has taken about that length of time to complete any of the projects in the West. Work was begun on the Milk river project fifteen years ago, and a good start.has not been made to date. What we are concerned in is.quick results and economy of con struction, which naturally go hand in hand. A private enterprise would not in any way effect our farm units and we would have a right to say how much land we wanted under the ditch. All the government red-tape concerning withdrawals, re duction of units, etc. would be avoided. We «re of the opinion that every bona fide farmer in Headlight valley would subscribe for some stock and agree to have a portion of his land watered. The Pioneer Press will keep its readers posted on dev elopments along this line. Mr. Madd-ox horned into the home stretch with sur prising alacrity in the recent congressional stampede. In contemplating the sorry plight of Boss Bud, Sly Steve might murmur after the manner of Scott's Min strel: "Old times have chang ed, old manners gone; a stranger fills*- the Stuarts' throne." Lumber That's Easy to Work Saves money to the builder in that it saves time and work of carpenters. We're ex tremely particular about softness and gfrin in our finishing lumber, siding, ceiling, etc., and most of it is mill planed so that it can be nailed right into the house ready for painting. We can save you money and assure best quality in all kinds of building material. Northern Montana Lumber Co. The Big Red Shed The government irrigation appropriations have recently been made a "pork" proposi tion; in other words, it has been taken out of the hands of the Interior Department and placed in the province of Congress. Like all othef "pork" propositions, the most influential congressmen will have the juicy pickings and the sections that poll the heaviest vote will naturally be first to be considered. Government irrigation has had a rathet sorrowful his tory in the past and the future is none too bright. The recent primary open ed the season a little before hand forthat pathetic aquatic fowl known as the "political lame duck."
