VOLUME G WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA. FRIDAY, JULY 5, 1912 NUMBER 26 Build an Elevator Here It looks very much us though the people were putting great faith iu the Wibaux country and they certainly will have nothing to re gret after the threshing com mences in real earnest. Busi ness houses have continued to rise up in the night and now comes the report that the Occi dent Elevator Company, of Minn eapolis, will build an elevator here within a short time. Some of the lumber has been shipped and we understand that work will begin at once on the structure. - It looks as il it, wore going to Lie on the site just north of the J. C. Kinney Elevator but this Inis not yet been decided upon as they have been offered their choice of several sites. This would be the logical place to build and it will add one more to the string of el evators that will some day be where the few are now. The Occident people have eleva tors in most of the principal cities in North Dakota and things must certainly look good to them at this place. We welcome them to our city and can assure them that they will not meet with any disa ppointment. No Typewriting for Him. A Cincinnati commission house recently had occasion to send a bill C. O. D. to a country mer< -• ant in the south.

Wibaux Wins Two Games Dennis came to town last Sun day, ilOth and crossed bats with Wibaux but met with defeat by a score of 21 tod. There was quite a large crowd out to witness the game and they had lots of fun as it looked just like a Burlesque show-. The. game broki r-.p in the 8th inning on account of rain. On the Fourth, Wibaux defeat ed the Belfteld team in a ten inn ing game by a score of 5 to 4, and this game proved to be the best of the season as both teams were about evenly matched.

Held Semi Annual Meeting The semi-annual meeting of the First National Bank was held on Monday of this week and after go ing over the past six months busi ness it was decided that Mr. P- A. Fisher be appointed cashier in place of 10. J. Armstrong, who has held this position during the past month or so. Also Dennis Grove was appointed assistant cashier. Mr. Fisher held the position of cashier until just recently so it is no new venture to him and his many friends here will lie glad to see his smiling face in the bank once again. V/e were unable to learn just what Mr. Armstrong's plans are, but understand that he will enter a bank further west, and his many friends in this city will wish him success wherever he may decide to locate. The Fourth In Wibaux The Fourth in Wibaux proved successful in all respects. In the forenoon occassional showers of rain fell but this failed to hinder the smail boy from having his celebration and the firecracker was poping all day and night. Everything went through as advertised and the band boys are to be complimented for their good work in furnishing music for the day. The ball game took place in the afternoon as schedul ed and in the evening some of the boys gave a good exhibition of riding the bucking broncho which was fine. The day ended with a grand ball in the bowery and every body reported a good time, Time and space keep us from giving tLie day's event in full but one thing is sure and that is Wibaux cele brated tne Fourth in grand style. Valley County Wins Bismarck, N. D., June 29, 6 o'clock p. m.—The Supreme Court has just handed down the decision in the Golden Valley division case, reversing Judge Templeton and declaring that the county of Gol den \ alley was legally segregated from Billings county at the elec tion of Nov. 8, 1910. The decis ion was unanimous. The attention of out* readers is called to the new advertisement of Woodburn's Grocery Store which appears elsewhere in this issue. Country Has Plenty of Rain This country was blessed with one of those millon dollar rains Sunday and most all through the week and now nothing but the hot winds can keep this country from reaping a bountiful harvest this coming fall. The farmers and business men have been hold ing their breath for a week or more and when the rain began falling Sunday all had a relapse and the smiles certainly came to the surface. The good crops are what make business good and we can see no reason why the crops will not be exceptionally fine this year with the moisture that we have been getting. Things have been a trifle quiet of late, but with this last rain money should loosen up and business ought to pick up considerable. It is reported that the country around Lemmon, S. D., has been hit by the hot winds and the far mers are moving out like last yenr only to go back in the spring and try their luck once more. We hflve certainly much to be thankful for in this section and if we can all pray hard enough to keep the hot winds away this sec tion of Montana will have a har vest to be thankful for. Opportunities In Montana If farmers of eastern states who are anxious to change their loca tions were thoroughly acquainted with the wonderful opportunities in Montana, they would certainly lose no time in securing homes here", is a statement made by W. L. Hart of Ord, 111. Mr. Hart says that although eartern citizens have heard much of the Treasure State, they are by no means well acquainted with the possibilities here for the man who is willing to hustle, and the idea still prevailing generally is that this territory is fit only for grazing and mining purposes. "I have been farming in Illi nois for 35 years and although 1 have raised many crops of what 1 considered mighty good wheat and oats, 1 have never grown anything which could compare with the grains of thisstnte. Things which appeal most strongly to me is the certainty of returns, for with irri gation there is no such thing as crop failure. This is certainly the greatest state for the farmer that 1 have ever seen." Mr, Hart also thinks there is a won derful opportunity for dairying here, in fact with an abundance of the finest feed on earth, with plenty of pure water and 340 days on which the sun shines each year, lie says it is a veritable dairyman's paradise. Washouts on the Line All trains^both east and west on the Northern Pacific system were late the first part of the week on account of Washouts on their lines. It seems as though the rains during the past week have been heavier in other parts than right here at home. Out near Wasco, a small siding near Pompey's Pillar several hundred feet of the Northern Pacific's track was submerged. Tuesday our city received only a small amount of mail and Wednesday conditions were about the same. The Northern Pacific is noted for getting their trains on regular schedule in a short time so things are about as usual as we go to press. Advertised Letters.
