ON THE WEST SHORE Editor Bee: After leaving O'Brien's mill Tuesday morning I found the roads in much better condition and my ride along the lake shore was thoroughly enjoyable. In the sum mer ttane, when the roads are at their best a drive along the west shore of Flathead lake must be de lightful. About two miles down the lake I found William Clothier building a walk around his house. I was greet ed with "Hello, Brennan." Now there is no harm, sometimes, in being mis taken for another fellow, and I free ly forgive Mr. Clothier for his mis take. I admit that Brennan and I resemble each other in some things. However, the principal point of dif ference is that I haven't got his job, and I object to carrying Bill's photo graph around the country unless he whacks up. Mr. Clothier has a nice location, substantial farm house and good out buildings. He has two hun dred fruit trees set out and raises a lot of small fruit. He will put in one hundred cherry trees this spring. Mrs. Emma Anderson, who lives a short distance from Mr. Clothier, has a nice orchard and grows lots of small fruits. She also has some nice chick en yards and is quite a chicken fan cier. W. M. Cramer, who comes next, has 650 fruit trees planted and wi'l set out 300 more this spring. He has small fruits of all kinds. A short ride then brought me to tue hospitable home of F. G. Marcoe one of the old timers in the valley. I was just -in time to sit down to a sub stantial dinner, and if you know what it is to be humped itp and down on a saddle for several hours, you can imagine the kind of an appetite had. Mr. Marcoe has a fine or chard. He still has some of last year's fruit in jars that would tempt a man to commit burglary in order to get them. His English bull dog though is a terror. After a nice visit with Mr. Marcoe I hit the trail again and soon came to the homes of George Betzer, J. J. Mulleneau and Daniel Fickes, the three places adjoining each other. Mr. Betzer has 150 bearing apple and cherry trees and will put in 360 more fruit trees now and will put in 250 this spring. Mr. Mulleneaux has 500 cherry and 150 apple trees this spring. He also has one acre in small fruit. Mr. Fickes has 150 apple, cherry and plum trees out and will plant 200 more this year. I next found a very pleasant gen tleman in the person of Rev. C. E. Cooens, the minister in charge of the Flathead Methodist mission. Mr. Coo ens' family consists of himself and wife and a bright little boy, ten years old. They are lately from Missouri and are well pleased with the valley. It was just like going home to stôp at J. J. Stoner's, and of course, I stayed there over night. Mr. Stoner has a beautiful location, nice two story frame house, large barn and good outbuildings. He has just com pleted a building for a blacksmith shop which will be a great conveni ence to the ranchers from the lower county. S. L. W.
