The Harlow ton Ne ws
The Continuetion of The Muselshell New. Vox,. 3 HARLOWTON. MEAGRER COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1909 No. 49 ern ATIURAL M fl511 Lewistown Managed to Gala Victory, But Had Hard Tuale, Locals Play Good Ball. The game played between Harlow ton and Lewistown on Decoration Day was of the variety that satisfies the wildest yearnings of the most en thusiastic fans. Despite the fact that a strong gale was blowing direct ly into the grand stand. the exhibi tion was remarkable for its speed, brilliant fielding, and hair-raising fin ish. The 800 fans who journeyed to the park to witness the contest came away satisfied and highly elated, and the managers smiled wholesome smiles as they tucked away the re ceipts. After every ball game it is possible to figure out a winning for the losers. The "ifs" are numerous, and so in the game here, "If Neff had not a sore thumb," "if the wind had not favored Lewistown in fielding", "if his royal highness, the umps, had spoken differently regarding several decisions on first, and on a third bunt strike," and "if Lewistown's left gardener had not stole a hit from Chase with three men on bases", the story would have had a different end ing, and certainly more pleasing to the visitors. There is luck in base ball, and it appeared to be all with Lewistown from the opening round until the sensational ninth when the Railroaders put four fleet runners over the pan, time after time the boys from the division town lined out the ball for what would ordinari ly be safe drives but the strong wind held the sphere until some lucky fielder ¢ot to it. Eut this does not end the sad tale of misfortune of Harlowton. In the second Ed Neff, who was doing the throwing for Harlow, got a bump on his bad thumb, and he retired in fa vor of Cooper who finished the game, and pitched gilt edge ball. Then Lord, after driving out a safe one, tried the grand larceny act, but his get-away was so slow, that Shaffer had the ball on him fully twenty feet away from the sack, and in the turmoil, the knighted gentlemen sus tained a bad sprain and was forced to retire, Cameron, who accompanied the team, took his place in right field, and deserved to have his picture in the paper for his batting and fielding, but space prevents alas,. Lewistown scored in the second and third and in the seventh added three more to make it sure. Two of these were caused by errors and a hit by Shaffer. There was nothing doing for Harlowton until the ninth when the bases were full with one out and the head of the batting list up. Chase drove a hot one down the third base line, and the third sacker failed to handle it, Bills scored. A comedy of errors followed, and in the melee the railroaders bagged four scores. There was still one out when Boker, a Lewistown sub, flew out to Shaffer who doubled up at second ending the excitement. In sizing up the relative strength of the two teams, it would seem that Lewistown had Harlow cheated on fielding, but the Railroaders had it on the terminal boys in hitting. Lewistown's hits were as scarce as ham sandwiches at a Hebrew picnic, but those they did get came at a time when hits ment runs. Bills who caught for Harlowton put up a clever game,and has won a permanent birth in that position. Lewistown fans think the division town has a fast team, and considering that all the boys are playing for fun and pa triotism and not for money, the citi zens should give the players the best support possible. The detailed story of the game: Qualls and Christianson Dissolve. Messrs Qualls and Chaistianson have dissolved partnership in the sa loon business, Mr. Qualls having sold his interest in the Gold Bar Saloon to Mr. Christianson, The building in which the Gold Bar was located will be rented to the Wilwaukee Land Company witn Mr. Jones in charge.

ECLIPSE OF SUN People of Montana Will Have Op - portunity to See Eclipse June 17th. A total eclipse of the sun is schedul ed to occur on June 17th. The phen onemon will be visible in all the northern states, but will not be seen in the south. The eclipse will begin in this lati tude about 6:10 in the morning and will continue until after sunset. F t the time of the disappearance of the sun, the eclipse will cover about one half of Old Sol. The eclipse predicted for June 17th is to be total and will be a reproduc tion of the one in 1869. The occasion will afford a rare experience for resi lents of Montana. All who have ever witnessed a total eclipse, state that they can never forget it. Rev. Krieger visited here the fore part of the week. He was pleased with the progress being made on the Mfethodist church. He states that until conference meets in August at Havre, there will be a regular pastor at this point. Rev. Krieger is to be complimented for his energetic work in building up the church at this point, when completed the church will be one of the splendid buildings of the town. ROBBERY Gold Bar Saloon Belonging to Christianson and Qualls is Tapped. On Wednesday night, shortly after midnight, robbers broke into the Gold Bar Saloon, of which Christian son and Qualls were the proprietors, and made a get-away of one hundred dollars. No clue has yet been dis covered that will lead to the appre hension of the thieves. Efforts are being made to ascertain some evidence that will enable the officers to make arrests. The bartender had locked the build ing about 12 ,o'clock, and had left about $100 in cash in the till, no one was around at that time. In the morning there was thirty cents left in the drawer where the $100 was placed. This appears to be all that is known of the circumstances of the robbery. The saloon firm of Christianson and Qualls had decided to lissolve on Wednesday so that the robbery had no bearing on the dissolution. THE NEW FLYING DUTCHMAN.

Ithe Minneapolitianas had the oppor tunity of seeing the town, and many jalled on their customers here. At the opera house Mayor A. T. Ander son presided, and after the band had rendered another selection that brought forth a round of applause, he Introduced Attorney W. C. Husband, who delivered the address of welcome. He stated that the town was thrown open to the visitors as it was proud and honored to entertain a number of business men from the greatest city in the northwest. Hle also refered to the close connection between Minne apolis and Montana, due to the fact that Minneapolis was the great flour ing center of the world, and that Montana was "rapidly throwing aside boots, shaps, spurs and six-shooters," and coming to the front as a wheat state, and ended by giving the nisi tors some advice from the experience of a tenderfoot, Mayor Anderson then introduced Wallace G. Nye, the secretary of the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, who responded to the address of wel come. He stated that the purpose of the visit was to bring the wholesaler and the retailer into closer connec tion, and to form that friendship that is so beneficial in trade.

He extended the best wishes of the business interests ,f Minnea ,polls for the prosperity and growth of Harlowton, and expressed a hope that the great Musselshell Valley would "blossom like the rose".

The date of the festival is riot defi nitely settled but it will be some time during the present month, and will be held in Pine-Tree grove. Thomas Cummings, one of the boosters of that section was in town the fore part or the week, and an nounced the picnic, and also stated that the gardens and other crops looked so well and had made such splendid progress that they were worthy of some recognition, especial ly since they are the first crops. The country north of the little town of Cruse is rapidly coming to the front as one of the best farming districts in this section.

About the fastest piece of construc work that has been done in this sec tion is nearing completion on the railroad flats south of town. Thoney L)rever got the notion Thursday noon that the proposed ball park should be erected without further delay. Man ager Lewellin gave him authority to to go ahead with the project. Then Thoney got busy. A dozen men were set to work digging post holes and putting in posts, and the first half day saw nearly all the posts in. Fri day morning saw the men at work bright and early and by night the ground was almost enclosed. The rapidity with which the fence was built would lead one to believe that the work was not well done, but the fence is solid and tight. It is kite shaped and is larger than the or dinary grounds. Good gat'is will be set swinging tomorrow. A ticket of fice in the corner next to town will also be built, and the grounds will be entirely ready for the game Sunday. It is not definitely settled what team will be here Sunday, but it is most likely that Twodot will be the town that will dedicate the now park on June 6th. The "long talked of" game with the bridge-builders has been postponed until a week from Sunday and will be played here June 13t h. Now that the park has been built, more games will be played here. Lewistown and Moore are coming in the near future. Roundup and Three Forks want games. All that is re quired is to keep away from the hardware store and throw away the little hammers you already have. Children Entertain. "The Rescue of the Princess Win some" was the title of an attractive entertainment given in the Opera House Wednesday evening by a num ber of Harlowton young people under the direction of Mrs. J. W. Freeman. The play was taken from a series of stories by Mrs. Annie Fellows* .Johnson. A horrible Ogre has stolen two royal children from their parents and has locked them in his tower pri son. He had induced a Wich to turn the Prince into a dog. A brave Knight, Feal the Faithful, offers his services in rescuing the captives, and after much wandering, finds the South Wind's flute which enables huim to summon a fairy band to his aid. The fairies bind the Ogre and Witch, who are made to give up the key to the tower and divulge the spell that keeps the Prince a dog. The costumes were especially good. In the Lower scene the Princess at her spinning and the several flower messengers sent by the Knight to bear tidings of the progress of his quest caused much favorable com ment. But the climax came when the fairy band, Queen Titania at their head, came dancing in, clad in glittering stars, holding bouncing balloons on which they had floated from their far-off summer land. The young people have been inter ested in raising money for the win dows to be put in the new Methodist Church. They have given occasional entertainments during the winter, and the proceeds from Wednes day evening bring their fund up to $105. Mrs. Flora Ross, the mother of Mrs. Folwell, who has been conducting a suit of hair dressing parlors in Lewis town, will open a similar establish. mnent in Hlarlowton. Mrs. Ross is an accomplished hair dresser and facial umassagist, and will undoubtedly have aU extensive patronage here. County Sheriff Geo. Williams came in from Judith Gap Friday morning where he had been serving several subpoenas on witnesses for the term of court now being held in White Sulphur Springs. Notice.
