DODGING THE BEATEN PATH
Good Story as It Is Related, Though It
Doesn't Often Happen In
Real Life.
Congressman Robert L. Dougherty
of North Carolina smiled when the
■conversation turned to reversing the
order of things. He said he was re
minded of the case of Bowers.
Bowers met a benevolent party on a
railroad train one day, and as the ac
quaintance ripened a bit he began to
spread before the other a history of
his life.
"When I was a clerk in a grocery
store," remarked Bowers, among oth
er things, "I received only nine dol
lars a week, and, like many other
young men, I fell In with bad compan
ions and began to gamble, I—"
"I see," interrupted the benevolent
party, sadly, "you were tempted and
took money which did not belong to
you."
"Oh, no," cheerily responded Bow
ers. "In less than a month I won
enough money to buy the grocery."
WHY SCRATCH? RESINOL
WILL STOP THAT ITCH
The moment that resinol ointment
touches itching skin the itching stops
and healing begins. That is why doc
tors have prescribed it successfully for
nineteen years in even the sever
est cases of eczema, tetter, ringworm,
rashes and other tormenting, disfigur
ing skin eruptions. Aided by warm
baths with resinol soap, resinol oint
ment makes the skin or scalp perfectly
healthy, quickly, easily and at little
cost. Try it yourself and see.
Resinol ointment contains nothing
harsh or injurious and can be used on
the tenderest or most irritated surface.
Practically every druggist sells res
inol ointment and resinol soap.—Adv.

STATE GAME WARDENS BUSY
Make One Hundred and Sixty-Six Ar
rests and Impose Fines to Amount
of $4,902.50.
Helena.—Any one who figures that
the state game warden's department,
which incidentally is one of the few
self-sustaining departments at the state
house, hasn't been on the job during
the past six months, should take a
glance at the semi-annual report of
State Game Warden J. L. De Hart,
which was submitted to Governor
Stewart.
The records of the office of Mr. De
Hart show 166 arrests during the
past six months, 84 of which were for
violations of the alien gun law. Of
this total number there were 144 con
victions, 11 dismissals, two acquittals
and there are nine now pending.
Fines to the amount of $4,902.50
were imposed during the past six
months. Seventeen of the cases con
victed served jail sentences.
The greatest number of convic
tions was made in Fergus county,
the total there being 39; Gallatin was
second with 13, while Ravalli, Beaver
head, Carbon and Flathead tied for
third place. There were three con
victions made in this county. Nine
teen persons were arrested for hunt
ing without a license and nine for
fishing without the necessary docu
ment. There were eight convictions
on a charge of killing deer out of sea
son.
BANDITS LOOT MONTANA BANK
Cracksmen Take $5,000 From Safe
at Stockett While Citizens
Watch Theft.
Stockett.—While a heavily armed
"lookout" paced hack and forth in
front of the Stoekett State bank here,
watched by numerous citizens who
peeped out from behind barricaded
doors and windows, yeggs blew the
safe of the bank and escaped with
$5,000 in cash.
Among those who saw the robbery
was Cashier Hobar E. Dawson. Citi
zens feared death if they gave an
alarm.
They were awakened by the first ex
plosion. Four charges of dynamite
and nitroglycerin were used to force
tlie safe. The cracksmen awoke the
watchman, who slept in the bank, and
forced him to stand guard with the
"lookout."
Taking the watchman with them,
the yeggmen boarded a handcar and
headed toward Great Falls. When
nine miles out of Stockett they forced
the watchman to leave.
"We're poor folks from Anaconda,
who are after some cash and don't,
you squeal while we're getting it, if
you know when you are welt off," the
bandits told the watchman.
Officers were called from Great
Falls, but there is no clue.
Trap Gun Causes Imprisonment.
Great Falls.—Guilty of manslaughter
and recommending a sentence of 18
months in the penitentiary was the
verdict brought in by the jury in the
case of John K. Jensen, charged with
murder in the first degree, whose trial
has just been completed at Plenty
wood. Jensen, who is a homesteader
25 years of age, placed a trap gun at
tached to the diior of his shack near
Homestead for protection against
thieves. A stranger, whose identity
was never determined, arrived at the
shack, pushed the door open and was
killed by the discharge of the gun.
New Humane Officer.
Great Falls.—Under an appointment
front State Humane Officer M. L. Rick
man, effective at once, Albert E. De
cew has entered upon his duties as
deputy humane officer for this district.
Mr. Decew is an old resident of Great
Falls. He will take up the work which
has been handled here by Deputy Wi
ley Mountjoy, who has been in charge
of the work in this section, together
with that of his own district, since the
retirement of J. C. Osborne. Mr.
Mountjoy hereafter will act as special
deputy.
Montana Bank Is Looted.
Great Falls, Mont., Dec. 5.—Five
thousand dollars were stolen from the
State bank of Stockett by robbers who
aroused the caretaker and forced him
to stand by while the safe was blown
open. The men escaped to Great
Falls on a hand-ear with the watch
man as an unwilling passenger.
Cheaper Light for Havre.
Great Falls.—According to Thomas
McKenna, manager of the Havre Natur
al Gas company at Havre, the gas
which was encountered in the second
well bored by that company exists in
paying quantities and assures Havre
of a sufficient supply for cheap light,
heat and power. The gas was en
countered at a depth of 1,340 feet, just'
100 feet deeper than the fipst success
ful well was sunk. The company will
at once start boring a third well and
will shortly make arrangements for
niping the city for its distribution.
Power of Ideal.
No one can cherish an ideal, and
devote himself to its realization from
year to year, and strive and struggle
and make sacrifices for its attainment
without undergoing a certain gracious
transformation, of which the highest
powers must be aware and men can
hardly miss.—John White Chadwick.
Good Reasons.
"Why did you throw up that job I
got you as collector for Jones?"
"Why, hang it, 1 owed money to

TEMPLE TO WELCOME NOBLES
Big Shrine Meetings to Be Held In
Helena Next Month—Proclama
tion Sent.
Anaconda. — Sliriners of Montana
will have two ceremonials next month.
Algeria temple, oasis of Helena, will
have its twenty-sixth annual ce.-emonl
al at the oasia of Helena Thursday.
Bagdad temple, oasis of Butte, will
meet here for Its ceremonial session
Wednesday, Dec. 9. Illustrious Poten
tate Joseph E. Monroe of Dillon has
sent out his proclamation. It rends;
"My Dear Illustrious Nobles: For
the last time, perhaps, 1 address you,
bringing words of cheer and encour
agement. My year's work as your po
tentate has surely been filled with
milk and honey for me, and Bagdad
has grown »s never before, for which
I am profoundly thankful to the no
bility of Bagdad, than which there is
no grander and more loyal body of
men on earth.
"We are now in a 'stone's throw' of
the 600 mark and I urge every mem
ber of Bagdad to do his utmost to the
last moment to secure petitions for
the annual ceremonial session to be
held Dec. 9, 1914.
"With these words of admonition, I
will add that I have decreed that noth
ing be left undone to add to your
pleasure or the entertainment of the
novices on the above mentioned date."
Hustling Northwestern Towns.
Libby.—The three liveliest towns i
in Lincoln county this fall are Eureka, !
Libby and Troy. The work on the
new mill at Eureka is being pushed
as rapidly as possible, and the contrac
tors expect to have it completed and
in operation next March. The mill
will be able to turn out much more
lumber than the Libby's new mill.
Libby's new mill is being operated day
and night, and aside from a short
shutdown soon for repairs, both the
sawmill and the planing mill will be
run all winter. Contractors are taking
out heavy timbers and have begun the
construction of the big combination
mill at Troy. An electric lighting
plant is also being installed of a cap
acity large enough to take care of
the mill and the town. The present I
Troy mill has been busy this fall ship- 1
ping many carloads of shingles to dif- ]
ferent points in eastern Montana. The
Banner & Bangle Mining company is
working over a dozen men double I
shifts and the big body of ore is mak- i
ing a good showing in values. The
town is witnessing considerable build
ing and several business enterprises
have come in during the past year.
Sons of Norway Organized.
Helena.—Officers of the Sons of
Norway lodge were elected and the
permanent organization of the lodge
was perfected at an enthusiastic meet
ing of Helena Norwegians. The or
ganization and installation of the of
ficers was under the direction of
Thomas Quistad, vice president, and
Mr. Storvick, secretary, of the Pol- j
heim lodge, Sons of Norway, of Butte.
The following officers of the new |
lodge were elected: President, E. II.
Gunderson; vice president, Matt Staff;
secretary, Tx>nis Berg; financial sec
retary, Olaf Nelson; regent, E. B.
Eliason; judge, I. A. Bye; marshal,
O. A. Dahl; cashier, Ingvald Eids
wick; inner guard, R. Johnson; outer
guard, H. Risnes; trustee, three
years, A. M. Holter; trustee, two
years. H. Holm; trustee, one year, L.
Risnes.
Bank Receiver Suspended.
Billings.—Alleging that the affairs
of the defunct First Trust & Savings
bank have been handled detrimentally
to the interest of depositors and to his
own personal advantage, Receiver
Arthur H. Brown was suspended on
order of Judge Pierson of the district
court, and the situation is further com
plicated by the filing of an affidavit in
the name of P. B. Moss, former presi
dent of the trust company, by which
Judge Pierson is disqualified on the
grounds of bias afcd personal prejudice.
Brown was appointed receiver in 1912,
and dividends totaling 45 per cent
have been paid by the trust company.
He denies that anv cause exists for
the summary act of Judge Pierson.
Contest Looekamp Will.
Butte.—Frank A. T.osekamp of bat
tle and George \V. Losekamp of L 03
Angeles, brothers, have begun contest
of the will of John D. I.osefcamp, a
wealthy pioneer merchant, who died
at Billings. The estate is inventoried
as worth $350,000. The brothers allege
that John L. Iarsekanip was unduly in
fluenced by their sister, Mrs. Florence
Yates, with whom he lived. One pro
vision of the will bequeathed $100,000
to the Billings Polytechnic school.
Heinze's Chief Creditors.
Butte.—The first report of Receiver
F. D. Williams on the conditions of
the State Savings bc-nk, which failed
here early in September, shows that
the Augustus Heinze estate, Otto C.
I-Ieinze, a brother, of New York; ,T. A.
Corom, formerly a well-known Heinze
official, and M. S. Largely, are the
chief debtors. Heinze had borrowed
$221,292.05; his brother, $50,000; Cor
am, $109,250.22, and Largely, $30,
130.35, the statement shows.
Save Little Girl From Death.
Billings.—Six-year-old Clara Hanson
was rescued from the swift waters of
the drain ditch in the northern part
of Billings by 7-year-old Teddy Han
non and 10-year-old Austin North, her
playmates. The children were play
ing on the bridge on North Twenty
fifth street, when the little g'rl fell
into the ditch. While the smaller boy j
held fast to her legs the North boy !
reached into the water, grasped the !
girl's clothing and pulled her to shore, ■
little the worse for her dangerous mis

BUCK AS MOURNERS
Cold Fare for Progressives in Re
publican Camp.
If They Were In Any Way True to
Their Principles They Would See
Their Opportunity in the
Democratic Ranks.
T.t is becoming clear that the Arma
geddonites who are trooping back to
the Republican fold will be received as
bolters, not as bosses. They are wel
come to add to the party vote; they
are not permitted to shape the party's
policies. They may kneel at the
mourners' bench and ask forgiveness
uf tlie faithful, but they must not cast
longing eyes toward the bishop's chair.
That is reserved for those who re
mained true to standpat doctrine in
;he days before the bull moose caught
Jie fatal foot-and-mouth disease.
How do they like the prospect? How
lo such passionate Progressives as the
Ever-Blooming Beveridge enjoy salut
ing and taking orders from "Joe" Can
ion and Boies Penrose?
How can George W. Perkins expect
:o have the world made a better place
'or his children through the efforts of
'Boss" Barnes?
How can those lofty souls who ad
mitted that they were the sole custo
iiaus of virtue consent to obey the
;ang that they denounced as covenant
3d with corruption and saturated with
iin?
Of course, they have an alternative.
They can come over to the Democratic
party, which has done some notable
work at making the world a better
place for everybody's children. But,
from the Progressive viewpoint, the
Democratic party has two great faults.
It does things instead of orating about
them, and it believes in preventing
trusts instead of licensing them.
It remains to be seen whether the
band that gathered at Armageddon
would rather swallow the "crime of
the Coliseum" than accept the Demo
cratic principles of fair play and com
mon sense.
Fine Wilson Achievement.
After the panic of 1907 there was a
universal cry that "ssmething be done"
to correct the antiquated bunking sys
tem. But sentiment was so divided as
to what ought to be done that no
progress was made. The frankly tem
porary remedy of the Aldrich-Vreeland
act was adopted and then congress
stopped in a deadlock.
A banker interested in the question
was asked two years ago when he
thought there would be adequate bunk
ing and currency legislation. "A year
after the next panic," was his reply.
But with the tariff revision still un
settled President Wilson had the en
ergy and confidence to call on con
gress to deal with the question of
financial legislation. Contrary to the
prophecies of all the wise observers
a comprehensive measure was pul
through.
The president has good reasons for
the note of jubilation in his letter to
Secretary McAdoo, congratulating him
on the successful opening of the feder
al reserve banks, on which such high
hopes are built. The legislation creat
ing them was a splendid achievement
for the Wilson administration and
for President Wilson himself.
Democratic Needs.
When 1916 comes, the Democratic
party must beat a reunited Republican
party, captained by an experienced,
adroit, capable and very hungry old
guard—or itself he beaten.
The Democratic party is equal to the
task, but it has no strength to spare
for side issues, for carelessness, for
delay.
It must finish as quickly as possible
that part of its program which re
mains to be put on the statute books.
It must mend its ways in the matter
of economy.
It must abolish the pork-barrel sys
tem, and substitute therefore a ration
al, businesslike plan for improving
rivers and harbors.
It must provide for the national de
fense by strengthening the navy and
remodeling the army.
And it must end internecine quar
rels, tighten the reins of discipline in
its own ranks, show itself as perfect
an agency for ordinary administrative
business as for extraordinary reforms.
Good Work by Democrats.
President Wilson had the foresight
to keep congress in session almost
from the day of his inauguration until
recently in order to get his extended
program on the way, with the result
that more important legislation has
been enacted during the 20 months
of his tenure than has ever been en
acted during an entire presidential
term in a time of peace. The outlook
is that during the remainder of his
term he will B be able to keep all the
party pledges, even that relating to re
trenchment and economy, the very
hardest of all party pledges to fulfill.
Give Us Gfod Times.
Republican newspapers are saying
that owing to the diminished Demo
cratic majority in congress, the Demo
crats are not going to have thc-ir own
way there wholly, and that the Repub
licans are going to bring good times.
The peoplu don't care a hang
whether the Democrats in congress
bring them, whether the Republicans
there bring them or whether Demo
crats and Republicans working togeth
er in congress bring them. Give us
good times and let everybody turn in
and help.—Buffalo Times.
The Submarine.
The idea of submarines is two or
three centuries old, hut the first prac
tical submarine was built by David
Bushnell in 1775. Bushnell's boat got
under a British craft in New York
harbor and failed to destroy her only
through a defect in the torpedo.

WORTHY OF HIGH COMMAND
President Wilson's Promotions of
Army Men Will Have Approval
cf the Voters.
President Wilson and Secretary Gar
rison continue to carry out their excel
lent policy of promoting army officers
of merit. Recently there were an
nounced the selections of Brig. Gens.
Frederick Funston, Hugh L. Scott and
Tasker II. Bliss for the one existing
and the two coming vacancies among
the major generals; of General Scott
as chief of staff, in succession to Gen
eral Wotherspoon, retired, and of Cols.
Henry A. Greene, William A. Mann of
the infantry, and Col. Frederick S.
Strong of the coast artillery, to he 1
brigadier generals. These are all !
worthy officers whose fitness can hard
ly be questioned. General Funston has I
not, of course, the standing of a regu- !
larly trained officer, but his service at
Vera Cruz, with the fact that he has
served 13 years acceptably as briga
dier general, and has for years been
the senior in rank in that grade, makes
his advancement altogether justifiable.
The army will, we believe, agree with
us in asserting that it has had under
no other president so square a deal in
the matter of the distribution of high
honors. The Wilson custom has been
to promote those colonels who are rec
ommended by a majority of the exist
ing generals, and it would be hard to I
devise a fairer method. For one thin'g, j
it wholly eliminates political pressure.
If General Scott's rise to the position
of chief of staff has been rapid, it is
merited, for he lias served long with
troops and in the field, and has in ad
dition acquired certain lore about our
Indians, for instance, which is un
equaled by any other officer. Best of
all is the fact that President Wilson
absolutely refuses to countenance the
promotion of any officers as generals
who have not served acceptably as col
onels.
LEADERS MUST TAKE NOTE
Democratic Party Will*Certainly Face
a United Opposition Two
Years Hence.
The Democratic party must make up
its mind to face a united opposition
in 1916. The Progressives are peter
ing out. In two years more they will
have vanished altogether, and the old
guard will have reformed its lines for
another assault on the citadels of of
fice and power.
As if to rub in the lesson of the elec
tion, a group of old-time Republicans,
turned out or endangered by the re
volt of 1912, have won back to power
in 1914. "Uncle Joe" Cannon has
come hack to congress from the Eight
eenth district of Illinois. William
B. McKinley has come back from the
Nineteenth of the same state. Pen
rose wins an easy victory in Pennsyl
vania, Brandegee a harder fought one
in Connecticut.
Clearly, the enthusiastic souls who
followed the Bull Moose call are limp
ing back to the old fold. Most of
them havo got home already—as
some Democratic candidates learned
to their cost. All save an irrecon
cilabie few will be back by election
time two years hence.
Too Much Timidity Now.
Wliat is needed is for everybody to
throw aside the blanket of hard times
and to gain courage and gather for
titude and to get together and make
things go. There is absolutely no col
lusion of capital to slacken industry
—this is utter nonsense. There is,
however, too much timidity upon the
part of the banks to further indus
trial undertakings and to give support
to substantial industrial corporations.
Conservatism is a fine virtue, but It is
a fearful vice. There is much depres
sion throughout the country because
of the prevalence of this vice. The
country talks radicalism in policies
and acts ultraconservative in its busi
ness.
There is too much timidity among
men of enterprise. They are fearful
of the future, when if they would
"take no anxious thought of the mor
row" they would be ready to grasp tho
opportunities of the present.
Same Old Balderdash.
After pointing out how "Nature is
helping to bring back good times," tho
New York Tribune says: "The ad
ministration Hid not act as Provi
dence's advance agent in these recov
eries, nor could upsetting legislation
retard them." It is only when there is
a Republican administration in Wash
ington that nature performs its po- 1
litical duties properly, and the rain
falls and sun shines and bountiful
crops ripen in obedience to partisan
legislation.—New York World.
Next Presidential Campaign.
Since the Republicans made larger
gains and polled a larger total vote
than It was thought they would be
able to do, they are naturally begin
ning to plan for a vigorous presi
dential campaign in 1916. Democrats
must remember that.
Need for Harmony.
Never, perhaps, in the history of
the party has Republican presidential
timber been so scarce. As a congress
man, Uncle Joe Cannon was able to
"come hack," and, but for his ad
vanced age, he would make a lively
candidate for president. When the
time conies, however, the Republicans
will probably put up a very respect
able ticket. But if the Democrats con
tinue in harmony they should he able
j to retain power in Washington fo;
| many years to come. Harmony must

Musicians Want Good Streets.
The Musicians' union is appealing to
the. Philadelphia council for tho repair
of the highways, on the ground that
holes in the pavement were extremely
dangerous to the members engaged to
march through the streets at the head
of parades. The appeal describes di
vers injuries to the band members,
"because of falling into the slightest
holes, or by having a musical instru
ment jammed into them, or being com
pelled to watch such places, and be uu
j able to render the same volume ol

T ""'''VITAL FORCE'*"* -
H Disease germs are on every hand. They are in the very air i
we breathe. A system "run down" is a prey for them. One
must have vital force to withstand them. Vital force depends
on digestion—on whether or not food nourishes—on the
quality of blood coursing through the body.
DR. PIERCE'S
Golden Medical Discovery
Strengthens the weak stomach. Gives good digestion. Enlivens the
sluggish iiver. Feeds the starved nerves. Again full health and strength
return. A general upbuilding enables the heart to pump like an engine
running in oil. The vital force is once more established to full power.
Year in and year out for over forty years this great health-restoring
remedy has been spreading throughout the entire world—because of its
ability to make the sick well and the weak strong. Don't despair of

Saved by Gold Chain.
A gold chain that she wore around
Iter neck, saved a little girl of Cam
bridgeport, England, from serious in
jury, recently. She was on her way
to Sunday school, when a bullet ex
ploded by the wheels of a trolley car
hit her on the neck. She felt a sting
ing sensation in her neck and discov
ered a bloodless cut about an inch
long. On looking in at a window she
saw that the chain she wore about her
neck was cut. She put her hand into
the bosom of her dress to get the
loose end of the chain and found the
bullet. A search of the tracks revealed
several exploded cartridges. The po
lice believe they may be a part of the
shipment that was stolen from a
''reight car a short time ago.
Couldn't Reciprocate.
"Hum ho!" sighed the New Hamp
shire farmer, as he came in from down
town, "Deacon Jones wants me to be
pallbearer again to his wife's funeral."
"Wal, you're goin' to be, ain't ye?"
asked the farmer's better half.
"I dunno. Y' know, when Deacon
Jones' fust wife died, he asked me to
be a pallbearer, an' I did; and then
his second wife died, an' I was the
same again. An' then he married thet
Perkins gal, and she died, and I was
pallbearer to that funeral. An' now—
wal, 1 don't like to be all the time ac
ceptin' favors without bein' able to re
turn 'em."
To Clean Milk Utensils.
On dairy farms where many milk
utensils are in use, the dishwasher
will find that they may he cleaned
easily by first scouring each dish with
nshes. Rubbing over them once in ;
this way is sufficient; then rinse twice, j
They should he washed in cold or prel'- j
erahly tepid water, to keep them 1
sweet and clean. The treatment will
prevent rust spots front forming and
keep the utensils bright without injur
hig the tin.—Mother's Magazine.

<gfCanadiaiiWheat2
to Feed iheWorlds
The war's fearful devastation of European
' crops ha9 caused an unusual demand for grain
'from the American Continent. The people of the
world must be fed and there is an unusual demand
for Canadian wheat. Canada's invitation to every
industrious American is therefore especially attrac
tive. She wants fanners to make moneyand happy,
prosperous homes for themselves while helping her
to raise immense wheat crops.
You can get a Homestead of 160 acres FREE and
ether lands can be bought at remarkably low prices. Think of the money you
can make with wheat at its present high prices, where for some time it is lia
ble to continue. During many years Canadian wheat fields have averaged 20
bushels to the acre—many yields as high as 45 bushels to the acre. Wonderful
crops also of Oats, Barley and Flax.
Mixed farming is fully as profitable an industry as grain raising. The excel
lent grasses,full of nutrition,are the only food required either for beef or daii
purposes. Good schools, markets convenient, climate excellent.
Military service is not compulsory in Canada, but there is an extra demand for fa-rn
labor to replace ihe many young men who have volunteered tor the war. The Gov
ernment this year is urging tanners to put extra acreage iato grain.

Curious Suit.
A curious exposition of callousness
and greed was recently made in a civil
suit brought against a Colorado sur
geon. He became interested in the
case of a cripple whom he found beg
ging in the street, and by an operation
requiring great skill removed his dis
ability, The relatives of the cripple
promptly brought suit against the
physician for removing their means of
support, claiming that, as a cripple,
the youth had brought them in an av
erage of about five dollars daily, while
now they were compelled to support
him until he could gain the means of
earning his living. The judge prompt
ly dismissed the suit on hearing the
case for the prosecution.
