SUBHCKI I'TION KATKS One Year Six Months Three Months $1.60 1.00 0.60 Entered as second-class matter January 17. 1007 at the I'ost-ollice. at Wibaux, Montana, under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1879 CHART OF ILLIMITABLE VOID Remarkable Five-Acre Sectional Map of the Sky at Harvard Uni versity. This seems to be an age of great things. To talk of billions no longer occasions a shiver of incredulous ad miration. One of the wonders at Har vard university today is a five-acre sectional map of just plain sky and constellations. At the expense of more than a million dollars Harvard university has provided the chart which distinctly shows 1,500,000 stars, this having been prepared in sections by the Harvard university astron omers. The sections of the map, placed together, would cover an area of more than five acres, which is a pretty extensive plan of charting the "'illimitable void." In a scholarly annual report the di rector of the observatory calls atten tion to the fact that during the past year 3,796 photographs of «tars were made by the observatory. For more than 66 years the Harvard observa tory has kept complete records of as tronomical developments. By reason of thirty years' work and an expendi ture of a million dollars, this observa tory is placed ahead of all other simi lar institutions. In the study of the stars at the Har vard observatory there is something jmore than mere love of knowledge or tender sentiment. Even the slow paced walk of lovers under the arch ing Cambridge elms has no more of Witchery and romance about it than the wonders of scientific research [stored away in the college observa tory, which with its various stations has already become the shrine of mod ern astronomers.—''Affairs and Folks," Joe Mitchell Chappie, in Joe Chappie's News-Letter. An Appreciation. TVe wish to thank our congressmen for a nitty package of garden seeds sent from Washington for our special use. It is nice to be thus remembered by one who is far away in a strange land, and it beats a picture postcard forty ways. There is a practical val ue to a package of congressional gul den seeds which appeals. We had them cooked up for breakfast this morning, and, while they were fair, it must bo remembered, that congress has gone Democratic recently, and tin flavor of the garden seeds is bound to be somewhat more biting and pessi mistic than formerly, but we thank the thoughtful congressman just the same. We have eaten his garden seeds several years, and they are all right. Customs of Other Days, Drinking tricks figured In diplomacy in the time of Henry VIII. Mrs. Hen ry Cust quotes the king's challenge to Hubertus, the representative ol' the Palsgrave Frederick. He sent for two huge goblets, filled with wine and beer respectively, and gave the envoy his choice for a ''drinking out" test. In vain Hubertus pleaded that his master had actually instituted a company of the golden ring to put down such con tests, any member who broke the pro hibition to lose bis ring and give $1 to the poor. Henry, anxious to prove that the Englishman was the better man, promised to find the forfeits him self and drank his beer at a draft, while it took the German four gulps to account for the wine. Domestic Science. The CHicago woman who advertised for a domestic, and offered a weekly auto ride as one of the inducements, got but one reply. She was requested to send a photograph of the chauffeur so that it could be determined wheth er the place was as attractive as de sired. As the lady's husband himself drives the car the photograph was not sent, and there is search in other directions for a domestic. It would seem from this that the service must have more than ordinary inducements these days, and then doesn't suit som^. !***** o a 0k t a_j "BUSIN ESS LO CALS** 10 Cents per Line for the First Insertion; 5 Cents Thereafter Try This Advertising for Quick Results.

Tim (lP|iartinents in Washington re ceive some queer letters. Below is given verbatim a letter received last November by the bureau that has charge of the bonds of mail eon tractors, from a man who wished to get off a bond. It is unique. The last sentence contains a valuable sugges tion to others who disljke to receive disagreeable news, especially on bu'si ness matters. The letter tells how he signed the bond merely to oblige a friend and then continues with this personal history: "1 risk My life to go to the lection this fall i have Done all i can for you office Men at the White house. So t Wood like if you office Men Wood get me out of trouble so I cod Rest I baint Work one Day for 13 years on count of Palpitation of the Heart Some times I can't bare the clock Strike So you no My heart Is Weak you office Men Do all you can to get Mee out of trouble, if they had tolld Meo the let ten Was 4 year I Never Wood sind the bond I thought tt Was 1 year So I Was told when you Rite Don't Rite any thing that will excite Mee It Will Fly to My Heart."—Kansas City Star, Women Anxious to serve. More than twice as many women as could ho used applied for enlistment in the Women's Sick and Wounded Convoy corps, the newest adjunct to the British army. The corps takes part in practice drills, makes its own camp, does stretcher work and other wise gets practical training for the regular service. When enlisting the women accepted by the recruiting officer receive the king's shilling, which binds the bargain and makes tho woman legally obliged to serve as part of the military establishment of the United Kingdom.

DAN SUTHERLAND Jungle's Low Comedian. In the World's Work, Mr. Stewart Edward White writes: ''The wildebeest is the Jekill and Hyde of the animal kingdom. His usual and familiar habit ts that of a heavy, sluggish animal, like our van ished bison. He stands solid and in ert. his head down; he plods slowly forward in single file, his horns swing ing, each foot planted deliberately. In short he is the personification of dignity, solid respectability, gravity of demeanor. But then all uf a sudden, at any small interruption, ho becomes Hie giddiest of created beings. Up goes his head and tall; he buck jumps, cavorts, gambols, kicks up his heels, bounds stiff-legged, and generally per forms like an irresponsible Infant. To see a whole herd at once of these grave and reverend seigneurs sudden ly blow up into such light-headed ca pers goes far to destroy one's faith in the stability of Institutions." Tailors as Literary Men. One does not look for literary men among tailors, but none the less, the trade can claim some illustrious names. John Stow, the antiquary and author of the "Survey of London," for instance, began life as a tailor, and an other famous tailoring antiquary wag John Speed, one of our early map makers and member of the Society ol Antiquaries. And then there was Rob ert Hill, "the learned tailor," of Bir mingham, who contrived to teach him self Greek and Hebrew and became famous as a writer of theological treatises. And George Meredith was born over the tailor's shop. Pride of the Tenements. The social worker's fifth floor pro tege, on the occasion of the former's third visit, said: "When you come again won't you please carry a box of paints or an easel or something like that to make folks think you are an artist?" "Why?" the visitor exclaimed. "Because," said the woman, "I have told all these other women in tho building, who have been rubbering and inquiring about you, that you come here to give my little girl paint ing lessons, and I want you to help back m© up in it," CLEARANCE SALE "OF CHILDREN'S^ LOW SHOES!
