VOL.VI. NO. 8 CUT BANK, TETON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 1 9 1 4 Two Dollars Per Year News a Shock to Cut Bank Friends Death of Miss O'Neil De plored by Many Friends News of the death of Miss Cecelia O'Neil, which was wir ed from Kalispell yesterday, came as a most severe blow to father, brother and sisters, and a very large number of warm friends of the young woman here were greatly grieved to learn that she failed to with stand the effects of the opera tion performed on Tuesday. Wednesday morning the rela tives here received a letter from Dr. O'Neil, to the effect that patient's condition was very satisfactory. They were wholly unprepared for the sad message that came over the wire yes terday. Miss O'Neil was considered one of the leading nurses in northern Montana and had a wide acquaintance in all parts of this section. She was a graduate of Columbus Hospital at Great Falls and in that city the leading physicians were always eager to secure her as sistance on all critical cases. About two weeks ago she w as called to Glacier Park, in com- ; pany with a leading Great M 'alls ! doctor, to care for the late head I of the Burlington. At this place! she became ill and was taken to the Kalispell hospital, wfoqfg operation was performed iui appendicitis and where the end came on Thursday. Personally a young woman of fi n e, strong character, pleasant and companionable, she made lasting friendships at all places where she was called on professional duty. Her tak ing away in the prime of young womanhood and at the apex of a most successful professional career is deeply deplored by all who knew her*' The grief-stricken members of the family here joined other members from Great Falls and Choteau, on train No. 43, last evening and went to Kalispell to be present at the last rites. Deer a Nuisance Billy Ellsworth, who has a timber claim near Essex, spent Tuesday in Cut Bank. Billy is a veteran cow puncher, hrving ridden this whoie sedtion for the "Circle" and other outfits in the olden days. The iaüft time he was here this town was only a wide place in the wagon road and its present metropolitan ap pearance almost took him off his feet. He informed the Pioneer Press that the deer were eating up a fine patch of clover in his back yard and he hoped some of the big game stalkers here wouid come up when the season opened and help him shoo them away from his premises.

A Cascade Farm Brings Big Figure War and Prospects for Big Price Prospects A Factor The prospedt for high prices for farm produces next year is even now having an effedt on land values. Farmers in the Cut Bank community, sit up and notice! Give your lands the beSt possible attention this fall and sow every cultivated acre to grain next spring. A good crop with good prices will make for great prosperity, will mean increased land values and con fidence in this sedtion, which will redound to the benefit of all here. The following signifi cent item is taken from the Great Falls Tribune of Wednes day. The sale yesterday of the Frank Falls ranch four and one half miles east of Armington on Cory Creek at a cash price $•50 per acre brought a very optimistic sentiment to the real estate circles ot the city. The land was sold to B. B. Glines of Oberly, Ohio, and the deal was brought about by J. M. Gaunt & Co., of this city. The Falls ranch consists of 160 acres, all of which can be plowed. It is exceptionally fine farming land and its location is very good. The new owner will take possession at once and will personally supervise its cultiva tion. His family consists of himself, wife and three child dren, all grown. Mr. Glines first came to Great Falls laSt Saturday and his purchase yes terday demonstrated that he came fully in earnest about buying land and locating in this section of Montana. The present war situation, in stead of having a depressing effedt on the real estate business has already put a new life into it, according to Mr. Gaunt. He says that with wheat playing around the dollar mark Mon tana land is attracting attention and that during the recent weeks there has been a notice able increase in the number of inquiries for good farming land. He anticipates that there will be considerable activity shown in the line during the winter and a very active market in the early spring.

It is the desire of the local association to hold the next year's event here at Cut Bank. Sowers of fall grain jubilant ly welcomed the fine rain that fell on Monday. Reservation readers should carefully read the Sherourne display in this number of the Pioneer. Press, Move for a Trail Eas£t of Big Hills Havre Paper Describes the Move Mow Under Way P. N. Bernard, secretary of the Kalispell Chamber of Com merce, was in Havre Thursday at the solicitation of the local commercial club to confer with the officers and address the citizens on commerical club organization. Some days ago Mr. Bernard addressed a letter to the local organization recommending that it co-operate with the Wonder land Trail as sociation of Grand Forks. In an interview with The Plaindealer, Mr. Bernard said: "I have just been favored with a visit from Professor H. R. Brush, president of the Wonderland Trail association and professor of the department of romance languages, Universi ty of North Dakota. Professor Brush was on a tour of the proposed Wonderland Trail, which starts at Duluth and goes by way of Grand Forks, straight west along the Great Northern to Havre, thence to Shelby and thence to Glacier or the eastern entrance of Glacier national park. I have had considerable correspondence for more than a year paSt with the secretary of the Wonderland Train associa tion covering the proposition. "As I explained to Professor Brush when he was here, we already have a good automobile road from Helena and Butte by way of Missoula to Kalispell and Glacier national park, which we have just completed and a road through the western part of Flathead and Lincoln counties as far as Lib by, Mon tana. This fall the road will be completed from Libby to the Idaho line on the west, giving us an outlet to the Pacific coaSt. The people at Missoula have a road west through the Coeur d'Alene to Spokane. We are endeavoring to have the road from Kalispel west to Spokane made a part of the northwest trail rather than the one from Missoula through the Coeur d'Alene to Spokane. Conse q îently you will observe that we are under some obligations to Missoula for their good will and that we are not in a position to booSt the Wonderland Trail from Yellowstone national park to Glacier park as against the trail from Helena by way of Missoula to Kalispell. "However, we appreciate the fadt that sooner or later there must be a road through Glacier national park, giving tourists an opportunity of going from the eastern to the western entr ance of the park. This means a big appropriation from the gov ernment to build a road over the main range of the Rocky mountains in Glacier national park. "I met Secretary Lane a year ago, when he was through Glacier national park, and he assured me that he was in perfedt harmony with the build ing of such a road, but he stated that the chambers of commerce and the civic organizations throughout the state would have to get behind the proposi tion and give him their moral support. "Now in order to make the Wonderland Trail a success as proposed, it will be necessary to have just such a road as this through the park, because it is the key to the situation. This can be gotten by the organiza tion of the chambers of com I I merce from Dulutli by way of Grand Forks, Havre and Kali spell. The Kalispell chamber of commerce is willing to join you in asking for such an ap propriation. It is bound to come sooner or later. Without the road through the park, you can never advertise a coaSt to coaSt road road. "Professor Brush stated to me that sometime during the fall, there would be a big Wonder land Trail boosters' meeting and I suggested to him that this meeting be held at Havre. It would be a mighty big thing for your town as it would bring de legates from Duluth and inter vening towns and cities clear through to the park. It could be made a big thing and I believe that resolutions adopted at such a meeting would hasten the building of the road through the the n a t i o n a 1 park and get a big appropriation. I would like to see the Havre chamber of commerce undertake it and I believe that you are in a posi tion to organize at leaät Mon tana and through the assistance of the Wonderland Trail as sociation with headquarters at Grand Forks, this road can be built. "I will be pleased to do everything possible in organiz ing western Montana and help ing to boosit the proposition." "On laSt Monday evening twelve members of the Kalispell chamber of commerce motored to Columbia Fails and held a joint meeting on the matter of passing appropriate resolutions asking for a federal appropria tion for the construction of this road. I was charged up with the work of organizing all the commercial bodies on the line of this road from Duluth to the Pacific coast and as soon as I return home will open the cam paign. "LaSt year whe\ Secretary Lane passed through Glacier national park I met him in the park and escorted his party in automobiles from Lake Mc Donald to Kalispell and had a good opportunity to talk the matter over with him of in dorsing an appropriation by congress for this purpose and he frankly said that if the people of northern Montana would demand it by petition and I would organize the com mercial bodies in its favor, that he would gladly push the propo sition. That is juät what we are going to do. It will mean a big thing to Havre to have nundreds of tourist machines passing through your beautiful city each season. Then your beautiful white ways, the finest eledtrial system in the north west, and your parked streets, will get the publicity they de serve. "There is going to be a federal northwest trial from coast to coaSt in the near future, in fadt before the people are aware ol it and the towns it passes through will be fortunate in deed. I am going to pull hard for a big convention this prop osition some time this fall." MAKING MONEY To know where you make it, when you make it and why you make it—requires business system. By having an account with this bank, you will be en abled to know all the whys and wherefores of every expense item. Sjatmeta i>tate Sank JOHN S. TUCKER, Pres. F. H. WORDEN, Cashier Entry men Are To Have Another Try New Law Enacted Gives Them Right Second Entry «» Washington, Sept. 9.— T h e western homesteader and desert land entryman is to be given another chance. The law just enacted, providing for second homesead and desert entries to all who have abandoned their former entries through no fault of their own, will become ef fective as soon as the necessary rules and regulations can be issued for its administration. Congress has frequently pass ed laws giving a second home stead right, but heretofore it has limited its benefits to those having made and abandoned such entries previous to a spe cified date. The latest law, however, not only applies to all previous entries, but to all to be made hereafter. In substance the new law provides that an entryman oth erwise qualified under the desert land or homestead laws, who has lost or abandoned the former entry through no fault of his own, will be entitled to maite entries under such laws as though the former entry or entries has not been made. A provision of the act requires the entryman to prove "to the satisfaction of the secretary of the interior," that prior entries were made in good faith, were lost or abandoned "because of matters beyond his control," that he has not committed fraud or attempted "fïaud nor "spe culated in his right in making the former entry or entries." Court in Session The fall term of dStridt court opened at Choteau Tuesday and a large number of criminal and civil cases will be tried at this term. Among the most important criminal cases will the cattle lustling case of the Hoovers, Higgins and Reagan. Two or three witnesses have been called from here on the Reagan case. Auditor Longeway of the Libby Lumber Co. is spending the week here. Presbyterian Church Sabbath school each Sabbath at 10 o'clock A. M. Preaching each Sabbath at 11 o'clock A. M., and 7:30 o'clock P.
