On Wednesday, December 7, 1928 :
the Dagmar community gathered at,
the Brotherhood Hall in honor of the ;
aged couple Mr. and Mrs. Andrew j
Casper, who were married back in
Sweden just fifty years ago and who !
have never yet been sorry for what '
they did. It was in the good old I
days when people married for keeps. ;
For half a century this honorable
couple has stood side by side through
pleasure and hardship—lots of hard-1
ship—and helped not only one another
but everybody else they came in con
tact with. Many a mother and
youngster owe their lives to Mrs. Cas
; per, she was always there when help
was needed the most.
family and Mi', and Mrs. Nels Oksen
dahl were at the Marsh home Sun
day practicing on the Christmas play
which is to be given at the hall Sat
urday evening, Dec. 24th. The school
will have their program at the same
time, so any one who attends is as
sured of a pleasant Christmas Eve.
Mr. and Mrs. Si Ulrich and M. Mc
Callister visited with Mr. and Mrs
Wm. Cromwell Monday.
Mr. and Mrs. Casper were among
the first settlers and the Dagmar
community turned out big to cele
brate the day with lots of good eats,
with presents and good speeches from
noted local orators. The day was
well spent and everybody went home
wishing that the good couple would
be able to join hands with them for.

Considerable interest was aroused,
here by the arrival of two new Fords.
M hile not ready for exhibition pur
poses, the Fords have been observed
by several and much approval of their
witness and finish has been voiced.
Their bodies are finley lined and
graced with pleasing curves. Their
cplor job is of a quality that shows
richness and well being, and their
lines in general are wholly fitting for
tbe xv . or k desired of them. Probably
n °t without reason the design follows
tbat former models, but there are
individual differences. They are gen
orally quiet, but there is considerable
sound under heavy strees of exertion,
Their speed and durability have not
>' e t been tested, but their fuel con-j
sumption, at leasL at the present
tim . e is surprisingly low. Methods of
caring for the radiator overflow re
mains the same. While formed on the
same general principles, there is much
difference between the two models
received here which is not surprising
whe n it is considered that one is a
boy and the other is a girl bom to

have not been named, but they and.

Editor, Producers News:
The notice in your paper to the ef
fect that after December 12th, hair
cuts will be 65c ana' shaves, 35c,
both killing a dollar bill at one shot.
This happened some time ago by
the Barbers union throughout the
larger cities in the state. The orga
nized barbers put up a hard fight and
spent their hard earned money and
their physical efforts to have it come
about. It took many a hard knock
and many abuses from many angles.
It came from the main streeter, it
came from many other unorganized
bodies of the producing class, and
from others who call themselves
pr °
tessionals of one thing or the other.
I here was no one to assist or keep
them encouraged but the organized
workmen of the several trades thru
out the state. Not a whimper
an echo of any financial aid
couragement were heard from the I
erage smaller town barbers in the
different parts of the state nor did
they give them any help. It is well
known that the small town barber has
a hard time and needs more to have a
decent living, in fact all who produce
needs it but to kick on any one who
attempts to get more is not versed on
the condition that they are living in.
It is a well known fact that the
age small town barber shop has been
a propaganda center against all pro
ducers and farmers organizations,
especially in this state. I would like
someone to explain why it is that
open shop barber shop comes in at
this time and takes advantage of
Union Barbers prices after their hard
battle and trouble of getting it with
out giving any assistance when they
needed it most. They should at least
join the Union and put a card in their
shop if they are going to ' use the
prices and help them to pave
the way in their future battles. I
presume that as long as they have
used union prices on the men's hair
cuts and shaves that they will also
have the union prices on women's
hair-cuts. — '

Case is Dismissed
the duty of each member to look after I
and take charge of all road and bridge y
matters in his district, and to make j A
neceésary and proper repairs to roads ; hâd
and bridges and culverts therein and
to make report thereof to the board;
that under and bv virtue of that au
thoritv of the board, the defendant
Iverson, at the times specified in the
accusation, performed the work indi- j n
cated in the accusation, in viewing
inspecting and repairing roads ana
bridges within his district, and within f
the county; that at subsequent meet
mgs of the board he made oral report
to the board of the work performed
by him, and that, while in most cases, r*
no formal order was entered by the,
board, or by the clerk, in the minutes i
approving the same, the bills for his j
services and expenses in performing |
proved and paid by the board. _ of
The evidence fuither conclusively
shows that the county of Sheridan
received full value for the moneys so
paid to defendant on account of such in
services and expenses, and that such
services were rendered and money ex- ly
pended in good faith and in the hon
est belief by defendant that they con
stituted legal and proper charges
against the county; and that the de
' fendant in so charging and collecting
I said sums, acted in good faith, with
; out any conupt motive.
''By reason of the complete absence
of any testimony showing a corrupt
motive by defendant, 1 probably should j
have sustained defendant's motion for :
a nonsuit, but, not having done so, !
and having heard the proof showing
Rood faith and lack of couupt motive
on the part of defendant, and the full
value received by the county for the
work performed by defendant, a deci

"It is apparent from the testimony
of the witnesses, Madson, county clerk
and recorder, and French, and defend
ant Iverson, that the minutes and rec
ords 0 f the board were very loosely
and imperfectly kept, that the clerk
j whose duty it was to make full, true
complete minute entries of all re
ports and proceedings presented to the
board, seldom, if ever, made any min
| ute entry of the oral reports of the j
(Continu« d from page One)
j commissioners as to the road work i
i done by them, or as to any action tak
en by the board, save ana' except
\ the action of the board in allowing
and approving claims charged against I
the county for such set vices, 1
j "In the absence of such minute or I
| record entry, parole testimony was re
1 ccived on the trial, under the author- i
1 ity of McKinnon vs. Read, 251 Pac.
I 548.
j "Oral evidence respecting such
ports all tends to show taat at the I
] sessions of the board following the 1
performance of the work, defendant |
and another commissioner, French, |
talked over or discussed the road and |
| hi idge work in their respective dis
irictS with the board, advising the
board of the work done, and presented
their claims for compensation for the
same, which claims were allowed and !
subsequently paid. While that meth
od of receiving and approving such
I reports is irregular and not to be
| commended, I hold that the payment
of the claims after knowledge of the
nature and character of the work
] done, cures such Irregularities and
substantially amounts to approval
and acceptance by the board of the (
work done, where it also apdears, as 1
it does in this case, that the county
received full value for the -work done
for it, and that the defendant and

In Stores
Probably at no time in the history
Plentywood and in fact Sheridan
countv has theie ever been such dis
plays of fine merchandise of every i
kind and discretion as can be found
the stores of Plentywood at the!
present time. Not only is there near
everything a person can think of !
the goods are cheap and the qual- !
exceptionally good. In fact there
so many much larger towns that
cannot show the merchandise that can 1
now be found' in Plentywood. '
This fact is bringing more and I
more people from all over Sheridan j
county and this section of the coun
to Plentywood to do their buying 'j
and «flopping, thus making possible
the large and varied stosk in the
Plentywood stores. In fact Plenty
wood is growing rapidly. It has be
come the most cosmopolitan small
town in the state of Montana or in the
state of Dakota too, for that matter.
Everything can be found in Plenty
wood that can he found in a town five
times the size and it is the most fam
ous small town in the state. Prob-'
ably no other town in the state does
the' volume of business that Plenty
wood does. It is a live town in the
center of the best agricultural section
the state. Its inhabitants are up
and coming. There is not a hcusc to
rented in the city, and probably
forty families that wanted to move
into Plentywood have been unable to
do so because of the lack of houses.
One can hardly get a room here. Be
cause of this fact there is going to be
large building program inaugurated
next spring when a number of fine
homes will be built.
Sheridan county and Plentywood is
prospering and its growth has only
just commenced.
