SUBSCRIPTION RATES On* Year Six Months Three Months $1.50 1.00 0.50 Entered as second-elaks matter January 17, 1907 at the Post-office, at Wibaux. Montana, under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1879 By defeating reciprocity Can ada aids the Republican party. The fact that the aid was unin tentional and unconscious does not detract from its effectiveness. As was shown by the protests at the time the measure was before Congress, hundreds of thousands of farmers were angered by it, and a large portion of farmers would probably have voted against President Taft in 1912 if the pact had gone into opera tion. Those of them who have been Republicans will now sup port the ticket. The insurgents, most of whom opposed reciproci ty and who from their Washing ton headquarters had started to make a campaign against the President on this issue, are now out of ammunition. It will be remembered that a majority of the republicans in each branch of Congress voted against the measure when it was presented there. It was carried by a combination vote of the minority of the Republicans and a practically solid body of the Democrats. If Canada had ac cepted it, the Democrats would have been in a position to claim the credit for its enactment. It could not correctly be classed among the Republican achieve ments. Thus, whether it bene fited or injured the country in operation, it could not be cited by Republican newspapers or spellbinders as a republican work. And thousands of farmers would be impelled by it to vote against the President for his share in pushing it. More probably than he realizes yet, President Taft will be help ed by Canada's rejection of the trade pact. There will be no reason any longer for any de fection from the party. The in surgent States, which were hos tile to the measure, will now be placated. Messrs. Cummins, Bristow and their associates will lose an argument which they ex pected to make effective in the coming campaign. Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas and the rest of the States in the insurgent belt may now be relied on to cast their vote for the Republican ticket. Wherever he has gone on his tour, Mr. Taft has made a good impression; He has especi ally strengthened himself in the States beyond the Mississippi. But the defeat of reciprocity by the Dominion is a piece of good luck for him which he did not expect.—Leslie's Weekly. Born - To Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Woodhall on Wednesday, Octo ber 4, a son.

A lot of farmers, who have all tue way from $1,000 to $3,000 of stock and farm machinery to dispose of at an auction sale, often make the seri ous mistake of underadvertising the affair, forgetting that if a dollar or two put into an extra 200 or 300 bills brings eveu one live bidder to the sale the additional amount spent for pub licity comes back with compound In terest. Going short ou advertising Is like skimping the seed for fertile soil. i Pencil seeds should be planted as soon as the pulp is removed and be fore the pit has a chance to dry out. i They should be planted in rich, mel I low soil and where it is desired the | little tree shall stand in the nursery plot. Notwithstanding the fact that so much is written and spoken about this "back to the land" movement, over 45.000,000 of the more than 90, 000,000 people who live in this country reside in towns of 2,500 or over, and the proportion of town dwellers seems to be on the increase rather than de crease. While the fact is seldom mentioneu, the object of the reclamation service is not only to put water on land bar ren and unproductive through lack o* rainfall, but to remove the surplus moisture by drainage from soils a, most equally unproductive. It has been estimated by experts in charge of the government reclamation service that whereas there are 40,000.000 acrr* of arid land still to be watered there are 80,000,000 acres of swamp and overflow laud which can be drained and made productive by putting the reverse principle Into operation. Some idea of the magnitude of the irrigation work which has been un dertaken by the national government is gained from recent reports, which show that from the passage in 1902 of the law authorizing these irrigation enterprises up to the present there has been expended $70,000,000, white $48,000,000 will lie available for use during the next four years. As soon as the tracts on which this money is to be expended are put under ditch and sold the money received will be returned to the fund, to be used in similar manner for the development of other enterprises. The writer makes no claim to bemg a crop forecaster and particularly uf the long distance kind, but is inclined to think that with all kinds of fruits in such prodigal abundance this sea son it is more than likely that a good many vines, bushes and trees will take more or less of a layoff next year. For this reason it would not be a bad idea for the provident housewife to lay by this season a generous store «f such fruits as are still available, in cluding grapes, peaches, pears, etc. It is not likely that in another decade will fruits of all kinds be as plentiful and cheap as they have been this sea son. As showing how the big state fairs bear deflnite fruit along the line of better agricultural methods may be cited the organization of the alfalfa order during the Wisconsin state fair. A meeting was called of all fair vis itors interested in the growing of al falfa, and officers were elected to hold office for a year. This new associa tion will work in connection with tne Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment association. Any person who has tafc eu a course in agriculture or is Inter ested In the growing of alfalfa may become a member by paying 25 cents. Notwithstanding the modest member ship fee, much good Is bound to come from the organization. *ssieisi^*Misisi6sie>ei6ssi![iesities!e* * a a * a * # i a * * # a w m * g \ 1 1 * 1 | x i * m # * 1 tx | SMOKE EL CENTO & LAMEDAILA Handled by Local Dealers PICKERING BAR WEATHERS St PICKERING, PROPRIETORS Dealers in Fine Wines, Liquors and Fresh Cigars MAIL ORDERS SOLICITED Prompt attiotlon to out-of-town trade
