FARMERS CELEBRATE VICTORY
BY SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE
The farmers of Sheridan County
are celebrating the victory of the
Farmer-Labor Party in the county by
doing something constructive as a
memorial of the redemption of Sher
idan county, and making it the best
administered county in the state and
the best county in the northwest to
live in by taking steps to build a hall
or theatre to be called the Farmer
Labor temple.
FILLS LONG FELT WANT
The Farmer-Labor Temple is to fill
a long fe4t need in Plentywood and
Sheridan ccfrmty and th e idea has
long been discussed. The promoters,
after seven years of struggle to re
deem the county and make it what it
should be, having been successful at
the elections and having placed the
county in the hands of the farmers
for the next four years, felt that the
time had come to launch the project
that will fill a need in the city and
country and that will at the same

triumph at the polls, the only county
in the state that went over the top

after a gruelling contest and the
crowd went wild, but Alley's sup
porters were n»t downhearted by the
defeat of their man and were will
ing to wager large sums of money
that Tom Alley would win the match.
After a five minute rest, the wrest
lers again appeared and the huge
crowd was given thrill after thrill
as House and Alley both broke holds
that seemed so impossible to get out
of. For about 30 minutes the fans
