Martin of Billings, a repesent ative of the Marshall-Wells Hard ware Co., of Duluth, Minn., and also another car of building hard ware and sporting goods. This gives one a vague idea of what a large volume of business ts being done by that firm besides showing that Roundup is growing at no slow pace. The first car contains 150 stoves and ranges many of which have already been spoken for. Mr. Martin, who covers the great er part of Montana, says that Round up is one of the best towns he has in his territory. NO MORE SALOONS County Commissioners of FergusCounty Limit Number of Saloons For Roundup to Nine. At the meeting of the county commissoners of Fergus county held at Lewistown last week, a resolution was passed limiting the number of saloons for Roudup to nine. Nine thirst parlors are more than enough for a city the size of Roundup and the commissioners are to be com mended on their action in thus limit ing the number. Roundup has al ready reached the limit set by the eommissioners. Shsots Burglar Martin Hawkins, one of the new proprietors of the Lone Star Restaur ant, last Sunday m'ght winged a burglar whowas endeavoring too get away with some of his belongings. Hawkins sleeps in a tent near the restaurant and about twelve o'clock Sunday night was aroused by an entruder who had stumbled into his tent whether by accident orde cign he is unable to say. Refusing to say who he was or what he want ed Hawkins fired a few shots at random with his six-shooter where upon the would-be burglar made a lunge for him and grappled him in his bed. Hawkins finally beat him off and while he was making his getaway plugged him. Shortly afterwards a man appeared at the back door of Thos. Graham's saloon and asked for the attendance of a doctor. Dr. Smith was summoned who found he had been shot in the left shoulder the bullet lodging in the arm. The w r ound is not serious. No arrests have been made in the case as it later developed that the wounded man was intoxicated and did not know what he w'as do ing at the time, and as Hawkins pays for his doctor bill the matter will no doubt be allowed to pass over. Clean up! You can improve the town by using a lot of paint. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Willis were in from Elso Wednesday. P. J. Callahan had the opening of his saloon Monday night. Dr. G. E.

The past several weeks there been romors afloat to the effect that Roundup would have a company store, that is, a store backed by, and in connection with, the Repub lic Coal Company. While W. W. Taylor, general superintendent of the Milwaukee's coal mines, was in town last Saturday, the Record reporter took occasion to approach him on this subject and was assur ed that there would be no such mer cantile establishment in Roundup. Mr. Taylor is very much opposed to a company store and is em phatic when he says that neither the coal company or the C. M. & St. P. would recognize such an establish ment or have any connection with it whatever. Any store coming in to Roundup must do so on an equal footing with the rest of them as no partiality will he shown in the least. A GRUESOME FIND Railroad Graders Discover Skeleten of Man in River Bottom at This Place. r/' While working on the grade for the side tracks this week Wednes day morning, a grading crew dis covered a skeleton of a man inbed ed in the earth.The place where the remains werefound is severalhundred feet from the river west of the coal trestle and was buried about five feet in the ground. The skeleton is that of a white man, but, at this late date it is hard to conjecture how he came to his death or how long the remains have lain there. There were no marks of violence discernible on the skull or the rest of the skeleton so the theory that he was drowned in the river becomes tiie most plausible. The body may have been washed up to where it was found during high water or the channel of the river may have changed. The skull is now on display as Weast & Jackson's saloon the rest of the bones having been placed in a sack and buried. Local Happenings.
