The Workmen's Compensation Law in this state is somewhat indefinite in many^of its provisions, but it speci fically states that the provisions c.f the act shall not apply to domestic servants or farm labors. In other words, the Compensation act applies onl -y industrial workers, miners and such employment where there are great hazards, unless the employer elects to operate under its provisions. SEC 2837 of the Revised Code of Montana, 1921 provides that: THE PROVISION OF THE PRE NOT APPLY TO SÄES TAIMED GY DOMESTIC OR HOUSEHOLD SERVANTS. FARM p R OT .? ER LAR0RERS ENGAGED (TR to wScn vo IS OF A CASUAL NATURE L0Y It is incumbent upon such employers however, provide reasonably safe «ppliançes with which to work. Any inquires not dealt with in this article ahold be directed to The In dustrial Accident Board at Helena, Montana. or direct the sdbie to this office stating what particular propo sition is in question. em AIIPTTOMCTD ijvnr AUt 1 iUINttK HYDE IS BACK ON THE JOB Despite Rumors Intended to Hurt His Business and Cause Him Financial Loss.

It would have been the path of least resistance to impose the treme penalty of the law," said the "t ^ ba ^ r . e< l in his decision. In choosing imprisonment instead of death, the court is moved chiefly by the aga of the defendants, boys of 18 and 19 years." ex Ra Y Lang, the local Ford agent, who 18 commonly understood to be hooked up with a gang of auto thieves operating between Minot and Plentywood and Scobey and other points, was arrested this morning by Undersheriff Aldrich 8 i swo . rn oat b Y Sheriff Salisbury, Wed ÄftÄ"» "On or about fhe 28th day of July A.

ONSTAD & GREER DEFEND When Lang appeared before Judge Olson he was accompanied by Attor ney T. W. Greer of the law firm of vjTcer & Onstad, and upon the reading' of the information, Lang refused to plead and asked time to file a demur rer to the information which granted and Lang was allowed to on his own Judge Olson. Lang seems to have been identified with severa! stoien Fords lately, and Sheriff Salisbury has made up his mind that trafficking in stolen cars in this section is going to be stopped if it is humanly possible. A short time ago Lang was mixed up with an embezzlement affair when he collected a lot of money from cus tomers on payment for cars that he had sold, which he failed to turn i to the Acceptance Corporation was go recognizance by his honor. 111 IN LOTS OF TROUBLE Lang has gotten himself into lots ot trouble lately by what seems to be his determination to defy the law.
