Helena, January 12.—One hundred
miles of state highway in Montana
will be surfaced with oil during 1929
according to a statement made by
Ralph D. Rader chief highway engi
neer. The decision of tht, highway
department follows experimental sur
facing of 45 miles of road last season.
Much of this was on the Y.G.B. high
way where it stood up satisfactorily
under heavy travel.
Bainville.— E. J. Finucane has had
the Joe Foley building on main street
remodeled the past couple weeks and
in a day or two will open a new res
taurant and cafe. The front part has
been rearranged with counter, booths
and dining room and will be the • qual
of anything in this part of the coun
With the opening of this place the
Home Hotel will close its dining room
and business from that place as well
as the up town section will naturally
gravitate to the new place.
Mr. Finucane, who is himself a first
class chef, will be in charge of the
culinary department which is assur
ance enough that the quality oi food
served and the service rendered will
be of a high standard.
Gross sales of the J. C. Penney
Company for the mon f h of December
of this year were $25,103,925.33, as
compared with gross sales for the
same mnoth in 1927 of $21,799,521.30,
revealing a gain of 15.16%. The to
tal for the year is $176,697,622.02, or
a gain of 16.28% as compared with
total sales of $151,95„865.20 in 1927.
In commenting on the year's in
crease, Mr. A. L. Roser, manager,
"We feel that the increased sales
over last year to the amount of $24,
739,756.82, or 16.28% is a splendid
showing for our 1023 stores in op
eration at the close of 1928.
"While the sales for the year were
less than the quota, we believe this
fact may be attributed to the un sea»
sonable weather. The increases made
by the stores in operation for a year
or more reflect a satisfactory condi
tion throughout the country. Due to
the broad scope of our store units
which are located in every state but
Delaware, the picture presented is a
good cross-section of the economic
situa tioh.
"In line with our program to open
500 new stores in the next twelve
months, as recently announced, the
Company expects to do well in excess
of $200,000,000 in sales in 1929."

There is a man who, being subject
to hay fever, asserts that he is relat-:

By the way there are a great many
people who have athletic noses at
this time of year.
"Keep an eye on Congress," advises;
a farm paper, but forgets to tell!
whether this is suggested as a good
substitute for vaudeville or as a new
cure for insomnia.
Whenever I hear of a young woman'
....... , . f, , a .,
who is inclined to complain that "the
boys always get too serious," I can
not refrain from hoping—fervently
hoping—that she may some day meet
a man who will take her not in the
least seriously. This is not a cruel
hope, but a humanitarian one, looking
to the good of her soul.

The ques
tion occurs; Are there parking time
limits on Plentywood side-streets, and
or does a Plentywood cop actually
suppose that anyone ever gives him
a thought.
Is it possible to imagine, without
chuckling, any sane person sitting
down to think about a member of
Plentywood 's police force?
Someone objects: But perhaps the
stout prop of public morality suspects
the young couple of petting? Hor
rible thought! Sinister suspicion!
Shouldn't wonder if it were well
founded! Your pardon, Senor Police
man; my mistake!
But what if they were petting ? For
the land's sake, let them pet! Literally
for the land's sake. I assert and
1 maintain that it is utterly impossible
I for any husband, young or old, to
fondle his wife, young or not quite so
young, at the wrong time, or in the
wrong place.
If every Plentywood huslband would
take pleasure in giving his OWN wife
an occasional surreptitious hug, and
if every Plentywood wife would feel
a glow at his doing so, Plentywood's
maiden ladies would have less cause
to blush at Plentywood gossip.
