The class was composed of but

M. M. O'Neal, Salutatorian, and
Miss Grace Seibert Rice, Vale
dictorian. In her salutatory ad
dress Miss O'Neal chose the sub^
ject, "The Shadow of Ourselves"

Miss Rice chose the Subject,
"The Chambered Nautilus."
The additional program which
consisted of addresses, songs, rec
tations, instrumental music, etc.,
was flawless and all who partici
pated deserve great credit, espec
ially Prof. Baird who was, of
course, at the head of the affair.
The address of Attorney F. P.

Big Celebration Planned.
The enterprising business men
of Wibaux have 'decided to give
the public an opportunity to at
tend the biggest and best Fourth
of July celebration this year that
was ever held in east ern Mon
tana or western North Dakota

arranged consisting of public
speeches, races, roping contests,
ball game, two dances, broncho
riding, etc., and liberal prizes
will be awarded. The home band
will furnish music all day. There
will also be a grand display of
fire-works. Watch for the large
posters. The program of the day
will appear in the Pioneer at
an early date.
Real Estate Office Completed.
The new offices of the Babler
Land Conpany, first door south
of the First Nationat Bank, are
now completed and the company
will begin doing business right.
They have, previously, been get
tion along as best they could.
The offices, which were form
erly occupied by the post office,
are tastefully arranged and dec
orated with the finest display of
grains and grasses ever shown in
pastern Montana, and present a
very neat appearance.
We herewith reproduce a half
tone likeness of Mr. 3abler, the
president of the company.
Last Thursday evening Mrs.
Wynn entertained a few friends,
complimentary to Mrs. Ingle who
left on Friday to join her hus
band on the government ditch.
On Monday word came from
Darby, Mont., that Forest Gert
enson was ill with spinal menin
gitis and requested the presence
of his parents. It is hoped that
he will make a speedy recovery.
When you talk to a man or a
child about his faults, don't stand
over him with a club.
A foolish woman can make a
lover a husband, but it takes
a oright woman to keep a hus
ban a lover.
Home without a woman's care
and a woman's love is like no home
at all—only the empty nest in a
winter's gale from which the
birds have flown.
It is a mistake to suppose that
children will acquire good man
ners when they are as people
phrase it, "old enough" to under
stand their propriety, if the ob
servances of good breeding are
ignored or neglected in the first
four or five years. Mothers some
times forget that the active and
receptive stage of child-life in the
nursery is never surpassed at a
later period. The little one is
taking impressions every moment
acquiring gentle habits or the op
posite, picking up words and sen
tances, surprising his elders by
the facility with which he learns
what they would gather he should
not know. In the baby's home
the foundation is laid j. for the

Death of Mrs. D. A. Hall.
The remains of Mrs. D. A. Hall
were laid to rest in the Wibaux
cemetery on Monday afternoon.
Mrs. Hall gave birth to a baby
girl on Thursday night, and Fri
day afternoon begun to have
uremic convulsions which passed
into unconciousness from which
she never awakened, passing
away about 4 p. m. Saturday.
Mrs. Hall, formerly Miss May
Poorman, was born in the state
of Missouri twenty-five years ago,
and was manned to D. A. Hall

What might have been a ser
ious if not fatal quarrel occured
last Friday evening at the Davis
ranch south of town. It appears
that Felix Carson charged Hugo
Fahlstrom with making false re
ports to the foreman in regard to
the former and which roused his
anger to the extent that he at
tacked Mr. Fahlstrom with a
knife in Mr. Davis' office. Mr.
Davis succeeded in seperating
them but not until after Carson
had succeeded in inflicting a
slight wound in his victim's side.
He then appeared with a Win
chester which was promptly tak
en away from him. Some diffi
culty was experienced in secur
ing a doctor as Dr. Benedict was
out in the country all that night
hut on his return in the morning
he in company with officer Wynn,
drove out to see the victim of the
attack and bring in his assailant.
Mr. Carson was taken to Miles
City by Sheriff Savage Saturday
j evening. Mr. Fahlstrom, at last
report, was doing as well as could
