may help in the conservation of food
in this time of need.
"The practice of slanghtering eo
called broiler turkeys weighing two
to four pounds each (which is ap
proximately 25 per cent of the weight
of the matured birds) we consider
wasteful and we are appealing to the
hotels, clubs and restaurants, where
they are mostly consumed, to discon
tinue to serve them.
We desire dealers to refrain from
purchasing these immature birds,
and also that they encourage pro
ducers to allow them to mature,
thereby increasing our meat supply.
Your co-operation in informing all

Let the Birds Grow to a Good Size
Every farmer knows how little he
has to feed his poultry in comparison
to other stock. At is evident that
they live on what otherwise would be
entirely lost. So, let them grow as
much as possible.
"Drive Slow and Let the Little Tur
keys Get Out of the Way."
You know, how the little turkeys
and chickens will gather in the road
and when you come along with a
car, the little creatures don't know
that if they would stay in the mid
dle of the road that a Ford would go
over them without hurting thenr, but
they will get in the front of the
wheels. It may be, that you have
only killed one turkey since you had
your car. That turkey would grow
up and dress from 6 to 15 pounds.
That is not much, but there are up
,wards of 2,000 autos in Sheridan
County, and if each of them would
run over a turkey, see how easily we
would lose from 5 to 15 tons of meat,
during the season. "Drive slow and
let the little turkey get out of the
We hope the citizens of Sheridan

Ten minutes after a train carrying
troops rushed through Wolf Point
early last Wednesday morning, an
engine was started in some mysterl
ous manner from the round house
and sent down the main line under
Bull head of steam. The unmanned
engine ran into a freight train about
a mile west of Macon. No one was
There were rumors in Wolf Point
to the effect that the engine had been
started by some one who wanted to
wreck the troop train. Railroad ofi

declare it was more likely the work
of some boy employes.

LOCAL NIMRODS URGED TO
GET HUNTING LICENSE NOW
Plentywood hunters are urged to
get their licenses at once, because
the season opens Sunday, September
15. Game Warden Hudson said
Wednesday that he had only issued
twenty licenses to date, which is a
very small number considering the
large number ft local nimrods.
In previous years it has been the
custom of Sheridan county hazters
to pIEtpene getting as liceulse until
the day before the season opens. That
procedure is unnecessary since the
applicants have plenty of time now,
to secure their license in their re.

WAR BILLS FOR AUGUST
DOUBLE OF MONTH 1917
Washington, Sept. 3.-War bills
this month will approximate $1,621,
000,000-nearly twice the amount
$870,000,000, expended during August
a year ago.
Thus the war toll is now running
about $52,000,000 a day, or over
$2,000,000 an hour-a' slight increase
August figures bearing the total to
America of the war to date to over
$15,700,000 and the cost since Janu
ary 1 this year to over $10,500,000,
If August's approximation proves
finally accurate, this will be the most
expensive war month since America
got into the struggle, but the next
largest being June, when $1,512,000,
000 was poured into the war maw.
L And the same figures show that the
cost today is just double that of a
