Entered at the post office in Forsyth, ' Montana, as second class mail matter • on March 21st, 1901. When a Forsyth minstrel referred to "something good to eat" Thursday evening, he doubtless had the beef trust at heart. Although Mary MacLane has sub mitted to divers and sundry inter views, she has failed to state to what extent she has been remunerated for advertising Hutte 's resource.«,. Among things the Helena Herald will probably find out when the great day comes, when all things shall be revealed, is that the Forsyth Times has been barking at it. Mary MacLane says she likes the devil. So do we. He is an indespen sible adjunct in our undertaking, and unless she desists in calling for him a raise in his salary seems inevitable. A Boulder blacksmith was relieved of all the money lie possessed by a woman with one arm. If she had two arms the probability is she would have kidnapped him and held him for ran som. The government lias at length dis covered that the "water cure" has at length been in existence among the soldiers in the Philippines. With a good many people it will be a cure for further imperialism. Almost the last vestige of the war tax imposed to raise revenue to keep up Uncle Sam's end in the war witli Spain will be wiped out July 1, when important changes in the war revenue act will become effective. A company to navigate the air has been formed at Red Lodge. The next move in order for them is to petition congress for a right of way and grant of every cubic mile of atmosphere for several miles each side thereof. ■---------- I The self laughing editorials of the | Forsyth Times, when Br'er Ira per petrates one of his rheumatic witti- j eisins and then bursts his suspenders, j reminus one of the phonographic rec ord entitled "John McCullough in a Mad House." The administration papers are still asserting the Philippines war is over and at the same time howling because boys of 10 years old are found among the ranks ot t he so-called insurgents, wherefore they are forced to use "drastic" measures. Press dispatches say that the beef trust is not all disturbed by the threat ened investigation by a congressional commission. Why should it be? The beef packers had an experience with such an investigation at the time of the "embalmed" beef scandal and learned to hypnotize it. V ICKED Butte has brought forth a wicked book by a would-be wicked girl if she only had the nerve. Marv MacLane is publishing her diary un der the title of "The Story of Mary MacLane." The original title was "Waiting the Devil's Coming," but the publishers considered that too risque, and obtained lier permission to modify the lurid head lines. A \\ ashing i on dispatch under date of May 2, says that Senator Gibson, of Montana, today presented in the senate a letter from Commissioner Hermann of the general land office in opposition to the policy of leasing pub lic lands as proposed by the bill now pending in the senate. Hermann says that under the terms of the bill prac tically all the public lands west of the Mississippi would be subject to leas ing- and that it is provided that when under lease they shall nut be disposed of except under homestead and min eral land laws, the sale of the public ♦ BY....

He also attacks the provision of the bill fixing the rental of leased lands at two cents per acre. He declared that the general effect of the bill would be to p'ace the control of the public lands in the hands of the ex tensive stockgrowers with the corres ponding result of making the small owners pay tribute to their more pros perous fellows or go out of business. "IIA It K U I»" If III AN IT Y . "The water cure is a simple thing. The native is tied down flat on the ground and his mouth is forced open with sticks or a string, which is tied behind his head. Then water is poured down his throat throng'll a bamboo tube, which is nearly always handy. The native must drink the stuff and it is poured down until he can hohl no more. As much as a gallon can be forced into a man in that way. Then the water is pumped out of him by stamping on his stomach or rolling him over. When he comes to the native is always read}' to talk." This is the testimony of Private Hines of the 17th Infantry, just re turned from Manila. He says it was administered by Lieut, Bolton. The records of tHe war department show that Gen. M iles once called Secretar}' Root's attention to the fact that the war was being conducted with "un usual severity." Root with the en dorsement of the president replied that it was being conducted with "marked humanity" and practically told Gen. Miles to shut up and keep still. But Gen. Miles' remonstrance had the ef fect of bringing the matter before the country in a manner the senate could not ignore, hence the present unsavory scandal unearthed. The censorship of the press which the republican party stands sponsor for is primarily res ponsible for the allowing of this evil to go on unrebuked till now. For Sale. One fine yearling Durham bull.

"Montana sheep men are fast adopt ing new tactics," said Jake De Hart, of Big Timber, in the Chicago Live Stock World. "They are growing al falfa and will do much of their feeding on the ranches instead of around St. Paid. Rea Bros., of Billings, have fed a lot of sheep in this manner this season. By keeping them on alfalfa ninety days they are in good shape for finishing on screenings. As soon as grass gets weak they are put on al falfa anil kept on that feed ninety days. This puts them in good mutton shape so that thirty days on screen ings fits them for market. This will spoil, to some extent, the graft St. Paul men have been enjoying." The sheep industry in Montana is flourishing at present. Wool market ET* T 1 stxwat.

Dawson county, Montana is reputed to have more sheep than any other county in the Union and next December and January a large number will be put on alfalfa. Feeders realize by experience that ten days on alfalfa there, supplemented withthirty days on screenings at St. Paul puts them in better shape than 100 days on screenings and is a much more economical progress. Feeders have been forced to this move by the tactics of screening speculators in tak ing out the heavy end of the stuff. DISTRICT COURT DOINGS.

The May session of the district court was convened at the court house Mon day morning by Judge Loud and all but one of the state cases were dis posed of.
