A CARLOAD OF STOVES
Shows That Roundup is Coming Along
Some-Another Car of Hardware.
H. E. Marshall this week placed
an order for a carload of stoves with
R. H. 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
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
You can improve the town by

Supt. Taylor Says There Will Be No
Company Store In Roundup.
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.
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.
The Miners' bunk house is being

The Republic Pharmacy installed
an elegant new soda fountain in
their place of business last Satur
day. This is one of the best foun
tains manufatured and is certainly a
gem. Roundup can now boast of
as finely equipped drug store as j
any town of its size., and many large
ones, in the state.
Work was commenced Tuesday
on the building for the FirstNation
al Bank and F. M. Wall Mercantile
Co., on Main street. The building
for the store will he 25x100 while
the bank will he 18x40. C. R.

Tuesday from Helena and will re
main here now until the institu
tion is ready for business which will
be about July 1st.
The stores of Roundup have de
cided to keep closed on Sunday
and to keep open until 8 o'clock p.
m. except Saturday evening after
July 5th. They have been keeping
open all day Sunday and until
late at night to accommodate the
public hut have finally reached the
conclusion that customers can make
their purchases on other days than
Sundays and at reasonable hours
thus giving them a few hours for
reereation and other duties besides
those connected with the store.
Make it a point hereafter to see that
your Sunday supply of groceries
and other goods are purchased be
forehand and don't wait until the
