N. 1 lic ks anil E. G. Hayden, traveling passenger agi nts of Cleveland and Indianapo lis respectively, all connected with the St. Paul road, were in town Saturday on a tour of inspection of the Musselshell Valley. From here! the party took a team and drove j out north about thirty miles exprès- 1 sing much surprise at Unding Fitch a vast stretch of beautiful country as is found in the Lake Country he- ! tween here ami the Simwv Moun- ! tains. Swinging around they drove j to I at vina and thence to Dr. Sud duth's experimental farm south of! that place to see with there own ! eyes the crop possibilities of this part of Montana. They were picked up by their private ear at Litvina j Monday going to Lewistown and Butte. The object of their visit was to ascertain more fully the possihil-1 ities of the Musselshell valley conn- 1 try and this part of Fergus county and to secure material and data for j an extensive advertising campaign. A professional photographer will be! sent out shortly to take views ot points of interest depicting the eoun- i try in its true light which will he ! incorporated in a pamphlet and magizine articles dealing princi- | pally on the Musselshell Valley. The pamphlet is to he pulishcd in a short time and will he distributed d'/ast th stern states. In connection with the advertis ing campaign they intend to lit out a car containing specimens «.if every thing grown here in the line ol grains, vegetables, fruits, etc. Good lecturers will he secured to tour the more thickly settled stat«'S with this ear and they hope in this way tu lie aide to prove to the east ern people that Montana is the land of opportunity. There is no «Imthl hut what the campaign will result in many new settlers coming in to take up homesteads and to help build up the country. A reduce«! roundtrip rate from Chicago wiil he made to indue« prospective settlers to come out and see for themscvles the opportunities which are awaiting the newcomer. T.
