VOL 6. FORSYTH. MONTANA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1903, NO. 23 THE PAPER MILL A SUCCESS. And Gallatin County Should Be Proud of the Important Achievement. The Courier is in receipt of a sample of excellent building- paper, being from the first product of the new mill at Manhattan, this county, and the first building paper made in Montana. The quality seems to be up to the highest standard and everything that could reasonably be desired for the purpose. It was made from waste pa per gathered from all over the state, together with straw grown at Manhat tan. The company inform us that they will soon manufacture wrapping paper of all kinds and paper bags of all sizes and equal to the best made in anj T portion of the United States. In the letter of transmittal Presi dent Altenbrand says: "Our mill is a success and will add one more impor -1 tant industry to our state." The Manhattan paper mill is the most important manufacturing enter prise ever established in Gallatin county, as it will take a vast amount of waste materials—surplus straw, old rags and waste papers, of no ap preciable value and convert it into a a valuable manufactured product for which there is an unlimited demand and always ready sale at lair prices. And being a home industry it should be generally and generously patroniz ed. A sample of of the bu il ping paper was on exhibition at the Inter-State fair in Bozeman this week.— Avant Courier. Ho! To Enterprise. A much talked of private water system 1ms finally come to be a reality with part of the residents and property holders of Forsyth. J. W. Sweetser, Peter Droese, Gus tav Hoff, James Eckels. Charles Davis R. (). Bean, H. G. Wright, J. E. Ed wards, Harry H. Fletcher, A. L. Longley ami T. E. Hammond have united for the purpose of installing and maintaining a first-class system of water works and at a final meeting, held Monday evening, selected a con struction committee composed of J. E. Edwards, and H. G. Wright and work will begin immediately upon the instal lation of t'ne system. Charles Davis holds the money bag as treasurer. The plan of these enterprising resi dents is to erect a tank with a capacity of 60,00 gallons on the bank of the Yellowstone at the foot of 11th Ave., providing suitable power to füll the tank in about eight hours. Six inch mains of cedar wood pipe will conduct the water to a point of tapping by the respective property owners. All contracts for the work have been accepted and the tank and materials will be shipped in at once. A s announced bv the promoters ol the system it is intended that all resi dents, within accessible distance'of the main, who may wish to join and get water connections, may do so upon payment of a proportionate share of the first expense, to the original thirteen. As this enterprise is an assured suc cess, permission having been granted by the board oi county commissioners for the line to operate, we trust the number "13" will not prove unlucky to the enterprise, for the most urgent need of this town at the present time is good water and seweage facilities. The present state of the wells of Forsyth and the town's "sick record" point plainly to an epedeinic of sickness un less the matter is taken up with the view of meeting the necessities. Without incorporation, which appears a far-distant possibility, there is no remedy for these conditions, unless the enterprise of these citizens meets the success it deserves, and if, as suggest ed, and the size of the proposed system would indicate possible, other residents of the main portion of town can avail themselves of water facilities at reason able cost by joining in the proposition, we believe and recommend that all should do so.

Just as she said she would do, Mary MacLane, formerly of Butte, Mont., but now of Boston, Mass., has writ ten a new book, Her new attempt to shock the world will drop from the presses today, and then Boston will have a look at itself, and so will Butte and Montreal. But Chicago, where Mary was paid her first royalties, and was fed and entertained, and intro duced to the first citizens, will see no mirror before it. She leaves this city carefully alone. A year ago this Montana maiden came to Chicago. Her first book had made her "famous." She came eat ing a box of fudge and reading a yel low story and praying for rain and the border life. She was wild, for she was from Butte, and the "gcod devil" was her friend, her counselor, and her hope, and she admitted that that gentleman and the sands and barreness of the sage-brush country had made of her a genius. She had an appetite, and a love for cowboys, and she despised newspaper men and old women who asked her questions. Mary's new book, "My Annabel Lee," out today, from the house of H. S. Stone & Co., shows she has wonder fully changed. The devil is missing from her story, Bcfston and books have superseded Butte and its barreness, and the girl who at 20 wrote of things that made women of 40 blush is, at 21, tamed intoxicated with Boston and her love for a little Jap statuette, which she taught to be a mystic and an idolater of Mary MacLane. Mary McLain has contracted habits in the east and she unblushingly* tells of them in her new book. She dotes on cigarettes and musty ale. So does Annabel Lee. Where she acquired the habit and how long she has been at it she does not say. The book and one pale lavender flower of amaranth is inscribed to Lucy Gray in Chicago. This Lucy Gray, it is said, is Miss Lucy Monroe, 56 Astor street, who discovered the Montana writer and brought her from Butte to Chicago, and later sent her into the esthetic atmosphere that hov ers about Boston.—Chicago Inter Ocean, Aug. 29. Perfectly Happy Now. Charles Newstrom, the man who cut oft' his hand to save his soul, is in a cheerful frame of mind at the Minne apolis city hospital. He talks about his act most complacently and de clares that his salvation is now as sured. In describing- his peculiar act, he said that constant prayer had con vinced him that his right hand was an offending member of his body and must be cut off. Accordingly he rushed into the yard and grabbed an ax. It was dull and he hacked at his hand seven times to get it off. He took off the fingers and thumb separately, one blow for each, and then carved off the hand at the wrist. The moment the deed was accom plished he threw the hand over the fence and ran around to the front of the house, waving his bloody stump aloft and shrieking in joy, "Hallelu jah, 'tis done. " All of which is liable to lead a sen sible, self-possessed person to the con clusion that there is a greater amount of insanity drifting around loose in the world than the average man dreams of, and that the most of it comes from distorted views of religious truths and man's relation to a future state of ex istence, of which he absolutely knows nothing, and in which such idiotic per sons as Newstrom should have no act ual concern.—Wonderland. Owes Ills Mre to a Neigh bur'« Kindness Mr. D. P. Daugherty, well known throughout Mercer and Summer coun ties, W. Va., most likely owes his life to the kindness of a neighbor. He was almost hopelessly afflicted with diar rhoea; was attended by* two physicians who gave him little, if any, relief, when a neighbor learning of his seri ous conditihn, brought him a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di arrhoea Remedy, which cured him in less than twenty-four hours.

DOINGS OF THE MONTANA PEOPLE A party of cattlemen tire into a sheep camp near Gebo. Labor day was very appropriately observed in most of the leading towns of the state. a The Bitter Root valley is to have the first rural free delivery route in the state of Montana, in the Burt Fork dis trict. J. T. Carroll, a Northern Pacific brakeman, is arrested at Livingston accused of stealing a mail pouch from the crane at Laurel. Charles Deere, a rancher near Red Lodge, attempts to burn out a nest of hornets with coal oil and succeeds in reducing his barn to ashes. Frank Simons, a prominent Misoula ian, visites the Flathead reservation in an automobile, and has the batteries of the machine destroyed while attempt ing to ford the Jocko river. Some pipe dreamer in Red Lodge thinks it would be easy for that town to overcome the insurmountable moun tain barriers which lie in craggy ranges between there and Cooke City and makes the prediction that it would be an easy matter to construct a rail road from there to. Cooke City. The next thing that we lire prepared to hear will be that Red Lodge enjoy r s the monopoly of being the only point on this mundane sphere having airline connections with the immortal throne on high. The latter proposition is about as feasible as the first.— Bridger Free Press. Tom McGowan, who was wounded by robbers who recently attempted the robbery* of a number of harvesters in a boxcar near Glendive, died from the affects of the wound at Ft. Keogh last week. Kinahan and Wilson, the men arrested for the robbery* and for the murder of the unknown man found dead in a car at Wibaux, are still in jail here awaiting trial by the district court. They* have been positively identified as the two men who did the shooting and with the death of Mc Gowan it looks as if their stay on this sphere might be of rather short dura tion.—Dawson County Review. Cieriiian Syrup. We want to impress on our readers that Boschee's German Syrup is posi tively the only preparation on the mar ket today* that does relieve and cure consumption. It contains the specifics, such as pure tar, extracts of gums,etc., which have been so highly endorsed for the cure of coughs, colds and consump tion by the great medical congresses. The consumptive, whether his disease is in the throat or lungs, must have rest at night, and be free from the spasm of dry and racking cough in the morning. The diseased parts want rest, healing and soothing treatment, and the patient needs fresh air, good food, etc. German Syrup will give free and easy expectoration in the morning with speedy and permanent relief. Small bottles, 25 cents; regular size, containing nearly four times as much, 75 cents. At all druggists. A Kenia rkiible Record. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has a remarkable record. It has been in use for over thirty* years, during which time many million bottles have been sold and used. It has long been the standard and main reliance in the treatment of croup in thousands of homes, yet during all this time no case has ever been reported to the manu facturers in which it failed to effect a cure. When given as soon as the child becomes hoarse or even as soon as the croupy cough appears, it will prevent the attack. It is pleasant to take, many* children like it. It contains no opium or other harmful substance and may be given as confidently to a baby as to an adult. For sale by Forsyth Drug Co.

Fergus County Argus: A Chariton, Iowa, paper tells of a man who mort gaged his farm to buy* his wife a pair of diamond ear-rings. The wife took in washing to pay the interest on the mortgage, but in doing the job she lost one of the "sparks" in the first suds, whereupon she tries to hang lper self from one of the rafters in the barn. The rope broke and she fell on a Jersey cow worth $150 and broke its back. Her husband then undertook to shoot the cow to end its misery, but the gun burst and destroyed his eyes and his wife ran away* with a lightning rod artist. The mortgage is still on the farm. New Opening of an Old Country. On August 23 the Big Woods country of Minnesota was opened to passenger travel by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway completing its new road from St. Paul to Mankato. It is now the short line between Mankato and the Twin Cities with two up to date trains each way, running through to Wetls. make a note ofjx » 9» 55 > Co * 4 » » / Ç5» 5» §5* 5b <b So 5b LUjjTTh gjjjSß* at to of The St. Louis fair Collection. The Montana World's Fair Commis sion has delegated to the Montana Agricultural college the work of col lecting the agriculture exhibit of the state of Montana at the World's Fair at St. Louis, Mo. The object is to gather samples that will represent as far as possible every locality, condition and agriculture pro duct of our grand new developing state and show the world that we too have products not to be surpassed. To that object the commission wishes to get small sheaf samples of every variety* of hay, clover, alfalfa and grasses of all kinds used as hay; also samples of grain in sheaf, of every kind of grain grown in each locality. In addition, they desire to get samples of the threshed grain or seed to ac company each of the above named sam ples if possible. In collecting the sheaf sample the following points should be noticed: 1. Get separate samples for differ ent cuttings, as alfalfa and clover. Also separate from dry and from irri gated land. 2. Cut the samples before the plant gets fully ripe and dry* it perfectly without weathering. Get perfect sam ples. 3. Cut samples close to the ground so as to show the full height of the plants, and select clean bright straw. 4. The sample should be about a double handful under ordinary condi tions, tied up carefully. Do not crush the head of the sample. 5. Tie a tag to the sheaf giving the name and address of the party on whose land the sample grew; the kind and variety of grain, grass or hay; when sown; when cut; yield per acre in bushels ortons; area of field; weight of a bushel of grain or seed; state whether irrigated or not. Make the tag in duplicate. Put the duplicate tag in tlie small sack of grain corres ponding. The grain sample should be put in a small strong cotton sack. Aote the following: Two quarts of each variety of grain or one quart of seed should be a sample. Send plump seed only*. Put the above named dupli cate label in the sack; also tie a tag to the outside. The commission would also be glad to receive samples of tame flax, good samples of corn, or such samples of roots or other products as can be kept good until next spring. The question of cohl storage will be looked into. Photographs illustrating agricultural scenes of all kinds would be very val uable and much appreciated. Harry* II. Fletcher A* Co. of For syth has kindly consented to receive all samples of this section and keep them until arrangements are made for shipment. He will show you printed tags, and may soon be able to furnish all in that line or sac.s needed for samples. He Laughed Last. W. H. Freeman was a visitor to the city from Wibaux yesterday*, return ing home this afternoon. He brought to town with him a fine sample of fod der corn and thereby hangs a tale where he who laughed best laughed last. Last year Mr. Freeman deter mined to try the experiment of raising fodder corn at his ranch, and in spite of the assurances of many old settlers that corn could not be grown in this county, broke up fifty-five acres of sod and planted the same to corn, with no other preparation than the breaking of the ground. His "corn crop" became a sort of standing joke around Wibaux until last week when he brought in a sample of his corn that put the laugh on the other side. The stalks were seven feet in height, with a luxuriant growth of leaves and he says the growth of the entire crop is so heavy that a person can easily lose himself in the field. The yield in fodder is estimated at over a hundred tons and Mr. Freeman says the only work en tailed in the raising was the breaking of the ground and the planting of the seed, the rain and sun doing the rest. The sample he brought to Glendive is on exhibition at E. C. Leonard <& Co.'s store and will be exhibited at the state fair at Helena.—Dawson County Re view.
