OCTOBER 17, 1913 NUMBER 40 Dennis For County Seat Following is a Letter Written By a Dennis Citizen Explaining Some Good Points. There seems to be considerable doubt in the minds of some of our citizens as to the advisibility of Dennis entering the race for County seat, of the proposed New County of Fallon, to such I would like to offer a word of ad vice. Go into this proposition as you would go into any business prop osition, for it is a business prop osition as you can plainly see if you will give the matter a little consideration. It is a well known fact that the bulk of the taxes levied in any county for highway improv ment is expended principally near the county seat, and as the territory continues to Dennis will at the present valuation of property both real and personal pay at least one half the taxes in the new county, it seems to me to be a good business propo sition to get the benefit of these taxes in the vicinity when the bulk of the taxes are paid. Again in case Dennis wins the county seat, it is a safe bet that we will have a railroad up the Beaver before another harvest, and the benefit to the farmers of this territory of a home market looks to me to be another good business proposition. Again the establishment of the county seat at Dennis will mean an ad vance in the value of your farm lands at least 25 per cent and that looks to me like another good business proposition. How does it look to you Mr. Farmer? On the other hand the doubt ing Thomas will say, (, we will have to go to the expense of building a Court House, Jail, etc and that will make our taxes higher than ever." Admitted that it will make our taxes high er but there seems to be little if any doubt but what the County will be divided and it seems to me to be a good business propo sition as we must be to the ex A SPECIAL OFFER! s g i X' x 1 fl "The Most Of the Best For the Least Money" Cbe TOL B. ©rgaln Company "Cbe (People's (popular Grading Center tr We will give a hat or cap free, to match every Suit, Overcoat or Coat and Pants order received by us until Odtober 25th.

So lets all get together and boost for our home town. Boost for our coming railroad. Boost for our good roads. Boost for our home market. And once more all get together and Boost for Dennis for County seat. And if you can find in your vicinity one doubting Thomas, dont let a chance escape to talk Dennis to him every time you meet him. You cannot convince or convert a man to your way of thinking by talking to him once or twice, but by keeping ever lastingly at it, keep this matter before him continually and you will soon have him thinking the matter over when he is alone and when you get a man to thinking you have him more than half con verted. So lets all "HOP" to it Citiz ens and see if we can not roll up a nice big majority for Dennis. B. C. Slyter -* We Want The News. When you have a little item, Send it in.

SOME WIBAUX BUSINESS MEN P. J. BUNKER On the 6th day of May, 1912, P. J. Bunker, who had previous ly had charge of the office in the W. B. Jordan & Sons grocery store at Miles City, which by the way is the largest in that city, came to Wibaux and opened the Bunker's Cash Grocery. Mr. Bunker had made this city a visit and found that the store building which he now occupies was just completed and would make an ideal place for a gro cery store, so he immediately decided to locate here and cast his lot with Wibaux and the Wi baux country. Mr. Bunker car ries a complete line of the best brands of goods and his place is noted for being one of the neatest and cleanest stores in these parts. P. J. Bunker be lieves that advertising is what gets the business and he has al ways carried a space in the Pio neer for the purpose of letting the public know just what he has to offer them. He is of the younger set of business men of the town, but he is for the up building of Wibaux first, last and all the time.

Can't Get Along Without Pioneer August Witt, of Edgehill, was in town Saturday and called at the Pioneer office and had his name enrolled as a subscriber to the Pioneer. He stated that he had got along without the Pio neer just as long as he could stand it and from now on he was going to be a Pioneer reader each week. Only another case of "can't get along" without the Pioneer. Subscriptions Are Now Due j The Money Is Due US and We Need It. Don't Make Us Ask You For It. The first part of this week we mailed notices to a part of our subscribers who were in arrears stating just when their time ran out and how much was due us. Now this was not a "dun" but we need the money and it is due us. Uncle Sam compells us to keep our lists in shape and to do this every subscriber should ar range to pay up at least, once a year so that we will not get into any trouble with our Uncle. The Pioneer lists are in excell ent shape but we intend to have them all paid in advance before very long. The farmers are coming in every day and paying up so that we will not be oblig ed to send them statements. We certainly appreciate the at titude shown by the farmers in helping us to keep the Pioneer at the front and that of being the only "real" newspaper in the Beaver Valley. There are many who do not seem to pay much attention to statements sent out and as we can hardly afford to keep send ing notices which costs us real money for postage, we have concluded that after a reason able time we will be compelled to go personally to these people and present our bill. We don't like to do this but the money is due us and after receiving one notice a person should respond immediately. Now when you receive your notice come right in and settle your account as we need the money, and it is due us. We are giving a baksavher dust pan with every new sub scriber or every renewal. This is a handy little article and saves the women from bending over when taking up the dust. All the ladies will appreciate one of them so get busy and get one for your wife before they are all gone. We have only a limited amount on hand.
