The indebtedness of Choteau county was decreased last year over $19,000. That is a showing to be proud of. Mr. and Mrs. Amos Buck and son Charlie, of Stevensville, came up last week and spent the Christmas fes tivities with the family of her brother, L. J. Knapp. Late to bed and early to rise, pre- t pares a man for his home in the skies. But early to bed and a Little Early Riser, the pill that makes life longer and better and wiser. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Powell, who t reside on the west side just opposite the Bass farm, near Stevensville, drove up Monday morning and helped Mr. and Mrs. Lou Crutchtield cele- o brate Christmas.

Senator Myers leaves Friday for Helena to represent this county in the upper branch of the legislature for 60 days from Monday next. Rep resentative Crutchfield is expected to reach Helena this week, and Repre sentative Woods will likely go on the same train with the senator. In point of ability Ravalli county will stack up pretty well with any of them and ahead of a good many. The little son of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Newell, of the Cottage house, died last Sunday afternoon and was buried Monday. Tile little fellow Was ill for some time, and at first it Was thought to be a stomach trouble, but it later developed that an abcess on the brain had formed. lHe was 1 year, 1 month and 23 days old when lie died. The family have the sym pithy of the community in their treavement. With this wieek the rush of courity ti blicat'itis incidental to the close of the fisdil1 year will bd' dver in this office, and the pabli~her willl be en abled to get out and interview the people on business.

HIe was velry fiavorably impressed with this 'settion and pramises to give it a good sendoff in his paper. The annual statement of the ounty's affairs as reported by County Gherk Fitzgerald appears on our first "ptge this week. It shows that the B~fdebtedness of the county has in 'reased $2,152.34 in tile last year, buit the showing is not so bad after :ll, when it is considered that the, "cdunty is possessed of an increased "9aluation in bridges, particularly the ioge at Grantsdale. The increase is principally in tie road and poor funds, and with.thedecrease in the cost of the care and. medcine-s for the poor by the new contract the poor fund will be a saver for next year. The affairs 9f Ilavalli county are in better spape tban some 'othe~s in the state, though .n~ t yet wlat threy Sho'hilid '1: Give us a trial order for job work.

Miss Ida L. Fisher of Stevensville is in Helena this week attending the aI~nual meeting of the state teachers' association. Miss Fisher always keeps abreast of the educational world and is a regular attendant at these annual meetings. Overcome evil with good. Over come your coughs and colds with One Minute Cough Cure. It is so good childlren cry for it. It cures croup, bronchitis, pneumonia, grippe and all throat and lung diseases. J. D. Miser. Revival services are being held at the M.

Charlie Dunham, who has had charge of the bar at the Ravalli for some time past, has formed a part nership with T. J.

The firm of Burns & Dunham is bound to be a popular one, as both have nlany friends, ThM Greeley Nurseries of Greeley, Col., have a force of men in the val ley interviewing the farmers and fruit growers. The nurseries have an excellent reputatioli and there is no doubt that trees purchased from them will give satisfaction. Mr. Speer and assistants know just what growers of this altitude and climate want. The REPUBLICAN takes consider able pride in calling attention to this issueof the paper as showinig the facilities of its plant to do any kind of work that it liable to come to it. It will be noticed that there are in this paper over eleven columns of solid nonpariel type, set up in matter that requires an unusual amount of what tis termed "sorts," and yet it has been handled without straining the fabilities of the plant. It is safe to'say that no other printing plant in either iavalli or Missoula county could handle the matter in one issue, aind it is doubtful if there is one on Sthe west side outside of Butte and SAnaconda that could do it. The HEPUBLICAN will always be found prepared to meet all requirements of the trade.

Murphy and familiarly known as "Spud," had his nose broken while practicing in the gym nasium at the Columbia law school in New York. "Spud" is well known in Hamilton, having played baseball here with the university team. The sooner a cough or cold is cured without harm to the sufferer the better. Lingering colds are danger ous. Hacking cough is distressing. One Minute Cough Cure quickly cures it. Why suffer when such a cough cure is within reach? It is pleasant to the taste. J. D. Miser. Card of Thanks. Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Newell desire to return their heartfelt thanks to neighbors and friends for the kind ness extended to them during their recent trouble and bereavement.

On the closing day of the Q session, however, Senator Chandler presented on his behalf an important resolution, to the passage of which the senator proposes to drevote a great deal of effort after the recess. Sen ator Carter is something of an icono clast on the subject of the rulesof the senate. Ile believes that they operate to retard rather than to ex expedite legislation, andl is ill favor of their ra-lical revision. Tile reso lution which he now proposes to press contemplattes a dl'cided changeI in the manner of reference of app ro priation bills. It is being considered by the committee oil rules, anid its chances for adoption seemn excellenti. It proposes blhat the consideration of each appropriation bill shall be byi the committee having charge under the existing orders of the senate or the subject to which the applropria tions in tile bill relate.
