Burlingame, a prosperous ^ ates farmer was a county so;P visitor on Monday of this At the Jordan Hotel at (ilen divo, Montana, on Saturday evening, November 28, 1914, tin 1 (Jlondive Bar Association gave a banquet to the members of the Bar and of the Four teenth Legislative Assembly of the Seventh Judicial Dis trict, State of Montana. There were thirty-three present; twenty-six lawyers, five Legis lators and two representatives of the press, with E. P. Loipor presiding. A delightful ban puot was served. The meeting Was called for the purpose of organizing a permanent Bar Association lor the Si'ventli Judicial Dis twoItrict and for the purpose of discussing matters of interest to the lawyers of the said Dis trict, or obtaining another Judge to help the present over crowded condition of affairs. Owing to the creation of the new counties the work of Judge Hurley has increased greatly, until Judge Hurley finds himself unable to attend to all the judicial matters of this District and is in need of some relief. It seemed to be the consensus of opinion that tin* Wejopinion and clioic* something ought to Ik immediately to relievi over crowded condition. A committee of five was chosen to take a straw ballot of all the lawyers in tho Seven th Judicial District for the purpose of ascertaining their in the mat ter. Two propositions were suggested; the one being the obtaining of another Judge in this District, and the other, the dividing of the present District into two. A committee of three was appointed to draft By-Laws and the Constitution for the Bar Association. The follow ing officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, H. J. Haskell, (Jlondive; Vice-Presi dent, C. H. Loud, Miles City, Recording Secretary, (Jeorge C Hanson, (Jlondive; Financial Secretary, Desmond O'Xeil, < J londivo. The next meeting of this Bar Association will undoubt edly be held at Miles City. Every county in the judi cial District was represented, Wibaux County being repre sented by Hon. J. \V. Hawks and Attorney Stephen J. Leahy. Botli of these gentle men report that the (Jlondive Bar are certainly royal enter tainers. doncltial ■ MAINTAINING SOU FERTIL ITY, BY PROF. TAYLOR It is little wonder that our farm lands, after a few years of contin uous cropping, begin to show a de crease in acre yields. It is hardly to be expected that the soil can main tain its fertility everlastingly with outany replenishment; and yet that seems to be the idea of many farm When von stop to consider the mount of mineral elements removed each year by various crops, and that these same mineral elements are ab solutely essential in the production of big crops' you can readily see that it is necessary to returnsonie form of fertilizers to the land. The above table shows that a heavy drain upon the fertility of the soil is caused by each crop, and yet we seldom stop to think about this fact until the annual yields to com mence to show a decline. Yet it is aniet a common occurrence to see a man hauling his manure out and and dumping it over a creek bank into some hole, while if he ap plied it to his land each year lie would tend to balance this drain of fertilizing elements, and at the same time put his soil in better pliy sicial condition. It may look like a t>ig expenditure of money to buy a manure spreader but any man who has used one would not get along with out it, and it will not require many seasons to more than pay for one in added returns from the land. The old system of hauling out and scattering manure by hand is not only slow but less ef fective because it ishard to secure an equal distribution, and usually where this method is used the fer tilizer goes over some creek bank or some other equally useles place. With a spreader a man can regu late the amount per acre and se cure equal distribution over all parts of the field. It would be hard to estimate how much manure goes to waste every year on the farms of Montana, and yet this constant drain of essen plant lood elements continues. Eventually this will mean small er yields per acre and an inferior grade of crops. Why not begin now to lessen this danger by maintain ing the present fertilityof your land and gradually building it up? The results of experiments conducted f t the Rothamsted fields in England lor aperiod ol fifty years show con clusively that barn yard manure gave as good results as any commer cial fertilizer used so why not prof it from these data and maintain the present fertility of your land with fertilizers at hand instead of allow ing the soil to become deplected until it is necessary to build it up again with expensive commercial fertilizers? Y-u cannot expect the wonderful producing powers of your land to remain forever without some replenishment to balance the heavy drain caused by the continuous crop ping every vear.-J.C. Taylor, Agri culturist for Dawson County. Poor (?) Ford. Newspapers every where never tin* of poking inn the Ford car. Here is the latest one going the rounds of the press: A junk dealer from the mid dle west had heard that Ford, tli*' auto manufacturer, used tin cans in the construction ol his car. II** gathered up several hundred tomato, saner ■ kraut and oyster cans and sent them to tin* Ford factory, along with a request that they |!»«' made into an auto. A week | later lie received a Ford bv | freight and a check for $!>.sb jl>y mail. He had sent in too manv cans. Town Gives Boost The following from I he Montrose, Missouri, Recorder, followed the Pioneer s article commenting on the election of Honest ('has. Oliver, and shows conclusively that the Pioneer was right in supporting Chas. Oliver for county commissioner at the re cent election. We always did know that Charlie was the right man and now we know that he was tlie best man, too. Once again we cannot re train from exclaiming. Hurrah for Honest Chas. Oliver. The Chas. Oliver referred to in the above article is none other than the Chas. the son of our highly respect ed citizen Henry Oliver, who was born on a farm near Montrose, Mo., April I 18711. and who until some live years ago was a highly respect ed citizen of this vicinity. He was married here Jan. 28, 1 909 to Miss Edna Dotid, and lived on his fathers farm one year after his marriage, going from here to Montana where he now has a fine farm, and the above article explains lus success in part in that country. ' Honest Chas. Oliver". Had the editor of the Pioneer searched the best edition of Webster he could not have found a more fitting word. By living an upright life, and by square dealing with his fellow men lie has succeeded in fulfilling the duties of County Commissioner in his county for one term so well, that the people said "yes we want Oliver", and have re-elected him for another term of six years. The Recorder editor lias never had tlie pleasure of meeting Mr. Ol iver. but is glad, with his many friends here, to hear that he has made good and that he has gained 1 he confidence of his people, which lie so richly deserves In conclusion let us say to the Pi oneer man and (he people ot Wibaux county, Montana have made no mis take in electing a man like Chas. Oliver and as time moves on when you will wonder at there being a single vote against him. We know not to what political party Mr. Oli ver belongs, and care less—its the man that counts and Mr. Oliver is a man all over. Let. us say with the Hurrah for Oliver!
