Way Into Austria Opened to Alies War May End Soon Bulgaria is definitely out of the war and Turkey, virtually cut off from communication with her allies and her armies in Palestine almost annihilated, likely soon will be forced to sue for a cessation of hostilities against her. Seeing defeat staring her in the face through the swift progress of the Serbian, Italian, British, Greek and French troops in the reclaiming of Servia and the invasion of Bulgari an territory, the Bulgars begged for an armistice, reserving " to them elves no conditions.

Blindfolded, the President groped into the great glass lottery bowl and drew out one of 17,000 capsules. It contained a slip numbered 322, thus e giving to men holding that serial Y number, first place in their respec tive classes after registrants already C classified under previous registra tions. The number was low enough to touch the list of every draft board I in the country except one or two of the very smallest. w Vice President Marshall drew the c2 icond number and was followed by sixteen other notables who hal been e invited to participate in the formal ceremony of opening the drawing. When it was over, officers and en listed men of the army, assisted by a corps of tellers, settled down to the task of emptying the bowl. Two t thousand numbers had been drawnca And recorded before 4 o'clock in the Wi fternoon, indicating that probably to 36 hours would be required to com ilete the wor'.

Dear Sir: With reference to seed grain order No. 631 for seed grain delivered to C. E. Lindquist, it will be necessary that you file a claim to support the C arrant. You state that we sent you a war rant in the sum of $210.00, we un doubtedly misunderstood the appli caot as to the price you charged for the grain, therefore if you will re turn the warrant of $210.00 in pay-| ment thereof, we will issue a war rant in the, sum of $230.00. Have the claim subscribed and sworn to either before a Notary I Publiec or a Jzustice of the Peace, at tach seled aiin order No. 631 to this claim and kindly return it at your ' earliest coinve.ience, so that we may e.ssaete c li* Iidi. caaenaetos J.

Now in order to make the "Ei '- ciency" of these letters understand able some explanation is required. The first letter for instance. Prior to the time this letter was written, a warrant in the sum of $210 was sent to Peter Westerlund in payment for a huhdred bushels of seed wheat delivered by Peter West erlund to his neighbor, C. E. Linquist on seed grain order No. 631. Mr. Westerlund wrote the Auditor, call ing his attention to the fact that the r warrant was for $210 ($2.10 per o bushel), when he understood that the I Montana & Dakota elevator was get e ting $2.30 per bushel for the grain they furnished and his neighbor, Mr. C. E. Lundquist was paying the county $2.48 per bushel for the seed wheat, the 18 cents advance being to r pay the county for the cost of hand! - ing the grain, making out papers, - etc., and that he, Peter Westetlund should have a warrant for $230.00 instead of for $210.00 which' had been sent to him, his grain being just as Sgood, if not better grain than that` furn d by the Montana & Dakota Elevatr Company, and his neighbor was paying $2.48 for the grain.

Mr. Thomas D. Campbell, pres'den: of the Corporation and Mr. F. W. Sg tevens, vice president of the co..ipa E ny, were in Poplar three days of last week and before they left the final clincher was put on the Ft. Peck pro position, making in certain beyond doubt that the Campbell-Morgan Company, the largest farming cor poration in the world by the way, will operate on this reservation. The leases, equipment and machinery of the Bieseker-Martin outfit, who up to the present have blazed the trail in big farming projects for the Ft. Peck have been taken over by the Mon tana Company and besides the 4500 acres the Beiseker-Martin people have prepared for crop the Montana Company expects to whip some 15, 000 or 16,000 additional acres in the line for crop within the next two growing seasons. Next spring they will put at least 10,000 acres into ac tual crop and break up some 10,000 acres besides. This company oper ates in units of 10,000 acres. This means that they will put 10,000 acres in crop in a certain year and summer fallow 10,000" acres. The next year the 10,000 acres in crop will be turned over and the first unit sown to crop and vica versa. In brief the policy of this Company who farm strictly according to scientific principles is to have a unit yield a crop every second year. They have . crop each year of course but it is a separate unit each year. The Ft. Peck project will be di rected solely by C. J. Beiseker, the Plentywood banker, according to Mr. Campbell. "You may say for us positively that Mr. Beisker will direct the oper ations here, said Mr. Campbell. His will be the last word on the Ft. Peck project." Mr. Beiseker expects to establish pffices in Poplar immediately and de clared that the work will be handled from this point. Mr. W. J. Breeke, of Grand Forks, who has been with the Montana Company for 12 years will be in personal charge of the of fices. Mr. Harry Martin, who was spoken of in the highest terms by Mr. Campbell, will, it is understood direct the full operations for the new company. The company have pur chased three new Aultman-Taylor tractors and by the end of the week expect to be tearing up the earth on the Beiseker-Martin place and ad jacent to it with the aid of 8 tree Itors pulling 10 plow bottoms on old ground and 8 bottoms on new ground. Some of the land the company ex pect to farm is on another part of the reservation but respecting the wishes of Mr. Campbell and Mr. Beis eker that part of the program will not be dealt with at th ,;m .... Mr. Thomas D. Campbell, the pre. siding genius in all this vast under taking is an interesting character. Like all truly big men he is not giv en to talk about himself. When pres sed he will admit certain facts but the interviewer must draw him out; he is not there to give you a first p.rson singular inter b any r or means. "the Standard .b was inclinec t..a #bout most anything else thank . This newspaper was able however to learn a few things about this young man 38 years of age who is at the head of the largest ofganifation of its kind in the world. For instance he undertook the work on the Ft. Peck reservation at the personal request of Seeretay Franklin K. lane, of the Interior, and Herbert Hoover of the National Food Administration.
