CEbc leading newspaper of UHfbaux»Swom Circulation 1468 VOLUME 7 WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1913 NUMBER 39 A Letter to the Parents A matter which lies nt the very foundation of good school work that of regularity in attendance. A pupils intentions may be the best, and his efforts while in school may be strenuous, but un less attendance is regular and punctual these efforts and inten tions will be largely neutralized. Teachers and principal are do ing everything possible to improve the matter of attendance, and these few words are written as an appeal to parents to help along in this matter, One of the ways in which they can help materially is to see that their children only re main out of school when there is a valid reason for so doing. It is easy to get into the habit of re garding slight pretences as valid reasons, and it is against this tendency that we shall have to struggle. Another way in which parents may aid materially in the system atization of the school is by seeing that children always take excuses with them when they return to school after an absence or tardi ness. This is a very important point in the matter of cooperation between parents and teachers, as it enables the latter to check up the reasons for irregularities in at tendance. It is my hope that regularity and punctuality in at tendance may be greatly improv ed during the present winter, and 1 bespeak the cooperation of every person in the district who has a child of school age under his care. Faithfully yours, H. J. Putnam, principal. Teachers! Attention! The next regular teachers' examination will be held on Thursday and Friday, October, 30th and 31st, at Glendive, Sid ney, Fairview, Circle, Jordan, and Nickwall. Please note the change in days and the month, effected by the new law for the autumn exami nations. Harriet Kelly Felt. Co.

FOSS On August 15, 1912, Mr. Foss came to Wibaux and opened up the Foss-Armstrong Hardware Co., store. He had previously managed this store at Hudson, Wis., but the general manager of the firm was at Wibaux in the spring of that year and decided that this would be an ideal point to move their store to. This concern controlls four stores in Wisconsin, one in Iowa and this one in Montana. The firm started business about 30 years ago, and they think that Mon tana is a great state both for business and for a healthy cli mate. They own about 12 sec tions of Montana land in addition to their stores. Mr. A, J. Foss is the local manager and he has made many friends among our citizens and farmers during his short stay here, and he states that there is no better country in the world than the state of Montana. Mr. Foss believes that every store should advertise their business and he carries a large space in the Pioneer in which he tells the public about what he has to offer. He also believes that all should put their should er to the wheel and boost Wi baux and the Wibaux country to the front. TAKEN TO HOSPITAL Edward Rush was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital at Dickin son, N. D. on Thursday morn ing and was operated on that day for appendicitis. Late re ports are that he is doing nicely. ARE YOU PREPARED UU "Are you prepared to dergo hardships ?" "I think J am." "Are you willing to be laughed at and ridiculed and pointed out as one who ought to be under the care of a guar dian?" "I think 1 could even under go that, if necessary." "Are you willing to give up all worldly pleasures, to walk when others ride, to be pitied as a weakling, to be sneered at by people who have little wit, and to be generally regarded as one who has forfeited the right to hope for the respect of society?" "Yes." "All right; then go ahead and be a poet." BUY DF PIONEER ADVERTISERS Our farmer friends should not overlook the fact that all advertisers in the Pioneer are reputable business and they will give you a square deal at every turn of the road. They have remained here throughout the past years and have helped pay the taxes of this community. This is an important feature which you should always remem ber. It takes so much money to run the affairs of the city and county and if the merchantsi were not here to pay their share more would surely fall upon your shoulders Our adyert.se ers are men who pay their taxes promptly and they do try to make life more promising for you. They have the best goods in the market and they will al-i ways be here to stand back of every sale which they make. something does not prove en tirely satisfactory to you, theyi are right on hand to make it right, and this is what the far desires. Mr. Farmer when you purchase goods go to the mer-1 chant who helps foot the bills of this community for he is here today and the same tomorrow. Figure it up from every angle and see if we are not in the right. You cant lose by trading with the Pioneer advertisers. Postmaster Rush Has His Troubles Talk about the Mexican in surrection, it is not to be com pared with what happened at the Wibaux postoffice on Mon day morning of this week. Post master Tom Rush, since his in itiation into this office has had his troubles, but the worse ever, happened Monday morning when the entire postoffice force bid Thos. a fond farewell and grabbed their personal belong ings and left the building en tirely in the hands of Mr. Rush. But Thos. was there when it came to this and he doned his Sunday clothes and when one went to the window and called for their mail he met them with his usual smile, and a certain young lady told us that he even licked a dozen stamps for her, as she stated that the taste of stamps was perfectly obnoxious to her. As soon as Tom got in to the harness everything went along the same as usual. Along about 12:30 o'clock that evening, when the smoke of the battle cleared the horiz on so that one could see clearly, T ° u -a. unv euu.u see c.ear.v, the WOrk WaS C,eaned Up for the was .. honky dory ., day, and the following morning Miss Theresa Rush appeared at the window on schedule time and the tangleable mess was soon cleaned up and everything once again.
