Walter a. Shear, publisher John SI. Kane, manager Published every Thursday at Wibaux, Montana. Entered at the postoffice at Wi baux, Montana, as second class mail matter. ADVERTISING RATES: Display, per inch per week $ .20 Locals, per line per week .10 subscription rates: One year Six months Three months $1.50 1.00 .50 The practice of violating the postal laws by writing on the margin of newspapers and in packages of third or fourth class mail matter has become so pre valent that the authorities are exercising unusual vigilence to stop it. In many cities every package is now opened to see if it contains any writing and as a result a large number of people have been fined ten dollars apiece for every case of infraction. Probably in many instances peo ple break the law because of a misunderstanding, but the post office authorities are acting on the old legal rule that ignorance of the law does not excuse viola tion of the law, and no exemp tion is made on the ground of ignorance. The withdrawing of money from the banks and secreting it under the floor, in stockings and behind the clock, as many are now doing, is sure to be followed by an unusual number of burgla ries and violent crimes, Thieves usually know where the hiding places are and they will not stop at nothing in order to get the booty. The safest place for mon ey is in the bank after all, and it results also in greater personal safety and in mental tranquility. Judging from a recent speech of J. J. Hill he evidently believes that the trusts are divinely or dained to control and that if ev erything were put into their hands to manage the universe would go along alright.

Elsewhere in this issue ap pears a report of the condition of the First National Bank of Wi baux, and, as there has been a great money stringency through out the United States, in the past several weeks, and many of the smaller banks having failed, the attention of our readei's is called to note the excellent financial con dition of this bank. A Mr. Baronyi threatens to expose all the misdeeds of New port society. He need not for people know enough about it al ready and they may well be spar ed the details. With the Brown Bradley tragedy, and the Howard Gould scandal in the limelight, and the Thaw case still on, the public is surfeited with such stuff.

The new paper, con sisting of twelve pages, all home print, has a neat and prosperous appearance. The Pioneer ex tends best wishes for its success. The advantage of economical living is a lesson that many may profitably learn. Prosperity oft en leads to extravagence and self indulgence, and that generally ends in financial disaster and fre quently in domestic trouble also. The best thing to take people out of their worries is to go to work and find out how other folks' worries are getting on.
