WOOL WAREHOUSE FOR ROUNDUP Strennons Efforts Being Made For Warehouse for A ccc ir. moilnlion of Wool Growers. i A movement is on foot which has i for its object the scouring of a wool I warehouse for Roumlup for the I accommodation of the large number j of wool shippers in this territory, j The wool growers are interested in ! the move as they will be compelled 1 to ship from Billings or other points ! on the N. P. unless the Ht. Paul I road sees fit to come to their aid and erect a warehouse at this place j —their natural shipping point. Heretofore the N. P. lias secured all of this business but the new road will, of course, get the bulk of it, providing they do their share and make arrangements to take care of this business. The erection I of a wool warehouse would not only mean increased business for the M. & St. I\. but would insure the trade of these ranchers for Roundup which is no small item. In order to have this season's wool clip marketed here the railroad officials will have to get busy and do some j thing, which they undoudtedly will ! when confronted with the facts in I j the matter. I A petition is now being circulated I among the wool growers who wish ! to make this their shipping point I asking the St. Paul to take steps toward this necessary improvement and stating the approximate amount of wool each will offer. Joe Asbridge, a rancher of Pine Grove, is boosting the cause among the wool growers and is doing some effective work. The business men of Roundup are also straining every effort in seeing that the matter is j given prompt attention by the of ficials of the road. It is up to the St. Paul whether they want the business or not and it is safe to say that they will see the light and do the right thing. Local Happenings. Are you BOOSTING? E. W.
