The Continuatinon o The Musselshell News VOL. 4 IIARLOWTON. MEAGHER COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1909 No.6 ANOTHER BIG LAND DEAL 2,300 Acre Tract Sold to 0. 1 Land & Trust Co. -- E. Stevenson Superintends Deal. A deal was comsummated a fev days ago whereby the O. K. Land A Trust Co. takes over 2,300 acres o the Old Bower ranch, which lie about 15 miles north of Harlowton Mr. Stevenson, president and genera manager of the O. K. Land & Trust Co., whose headquarters are at thi place, engineered the deal. This deal will mean much to this part of the country, as it is the intention of the company to irrigate a large portion of this tract and then cut it up and sell it to eastern farmers, this means a large number of new settlers, for this part of Montana. It is expected to begin the colonization of the land within the next few months, and steps will be taken to irrigate over half the land. The O. K. Land & Trust Co. has several other large holdings in this vicinity, which are at present being cut upintosma.l tracts and sold to the eastern farmer. This company is composed mostly of eastern capital ists. Mr. Stevenson, who is at the head of the company here, will con tinue to make Harlowton his head quarters.

TAFT TO VISIT THE STATE FAIR It is now definitely understood that President Taft will visit Montana, this being understood from a letter from Senator Carter, who writes as follows: - "The president will arrive in Butte shortly before 7 o'clock on the morn ing of September 29, allowing five hours in Butte. I have requested that he premits us to run his car from Butte to Garrison by way of Helena so that he can reach the state fair grounds about 3 o'clock p. m. It would be well if state fair authorities, state officials, commerical clubs and prominent citizens generally would unite in urging the president to accept the invitation by communica tions directed to him; on my arrival there will be prepared to give in formation as to character and extent of ceremonies and in the meantime will make all needed arrangements, for transfer of car from Butte to Garrison."

HARLOW Is the Name of a New Brand of Ci gars Manufactured by the Har lowton Factory. Perhaps one of the best and most original ideas, to advertise Harlowton as well as the local cigar factory, was originated by our popular cigar maker, II. A. Tschantz. Mr. Tschantz has secured the permission of Richard A. Harlow to use his name and photo graph for a new brand of cigars. Every cigar box cover will have a pic ture of Mr. Harlow on the cover and the cigar band will be dorned with it also. Mr. Tschantz wrote to R. A. Har low a short time ago asking his per mission in this. Mr. Harlow wrote in reply, "I shall be glad to have you use my name and photograph If it will helpayou. I am very much inter ested in Harlowton and all its citizens. and am always glai to render any as sistance I can." Tile first one hun dred cigars manufactured will be put up in four neat boxes and will be pre sented to Mr. Harlow. This new brand of cigars will be strictly high grade and will be sold over the entire state. This will not only result in giving the Harlowton Cigar Factory a great deal of adver tising, but our city will receive p some publicity through this new idea also. A. M. ~Mead, the Harlowton wool and hide buyer, went up to Twodot yesterday. Frank Williams from neat Twodot p shipped 14 carloads of sheep to Chicago e yesterday morning.

He is an Austrian who was formerly employed at the No. : mine at Roundup, and was sent from there about a month ago to Warm Springs, from which place he was re leased two weeks ago. l)r. G. A.
