Roundup : : Montana CLEVER AD BY THE ST. PAUL Has Big Map of Montana Showing Plowman Turning Furrows of Dollars. Of the many advertisements of Montana which have during the past few months attracted no little attention in eastern periodicals and daily newspapers of large circulation one deserving special attention is that of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad. The background for the ad. is a map of the country pierced by the Pacific coast extension of the St. Paul. Owing to the arrangement of the figures in the drawing, the state of Montana, and it is labeled in big black letters, forms the largest part of the map which may he seen. A giant is ploughing right across the state. The furrow which he is following is begun in the southern part of the commonwealth, and is headed towards Lewistown. In stead of a neatly turned strip of dirt, tiie plough has left a heap of dollars. The inner edge of the fur row shows plainly, and beneath the ground looks to lie formed, not of earth, hut of dollars one piled on top of the other and edge to edge. The point of the ploughshare is in the vicinity of H a r 1 o w ton, and the hind feet of the giant's team are on the north bank of the Missouri river beyond Lewistown. Over the ploughman's left shoulder can be seen the Pacific ocean, Ta coma and Seattle. Running at right angles to the beam of the plow is the extension, with all stat ions of present importance between Missoula and Lemmon, South Da Lota,in big print and in plain sight. The name of Butte is printed in even larger capital letters. This is only one of many advertise ments of this state and of the north west which are expected to bring the largest influx of settlers and homeseekers during the coming year that this section has ever seen.

The Commercial Club committee on county division had a conference Thursday of last week with Rufus Thompson, representative in the state legislature from this county, to discuss the proposed new Mus selshell county, which is to he formed from portions of Fergus and Yellowstone counties. Altho hav ing large business interests in Lew istown he was forced to admit that the proposition of forming a new county is a meritorious one, and, should it he defeated, would great ly retard the growth and develop ment of this section. He was very very favorably impressed with the proportians of the proposed new county. Mr. Thompson was prevailed up on to bring the matter before the legislature, but did not express him se if definitely on this subject which is somewhat ol a delicate one in his position. It is believed, how ever, that out of respect to this section which claims Mr. Thomp gon as a res ident more or less, he will father the bill providing for the d eeired change.
