COUNTY DIVISION T is understood that the inter ests at Lewistown will make a determined fight against the division of Fergus county, hasing their reason to keep the present liberal dimensions of the county in tact on the ground that we are "too young." Doesn't it look as if the powers that he at the county capi tal are trying to keep us just a little "too young" for some time to come. This talk that we should learn to creep before we attempt to walk is practically the only argu ment put up against the county di vision and sounds foolish. Some years ago—and not very many either—the commissioners of Fer gus county wanted to get rid of this section and offered to have it added to Yellowstone county which refused it. We are at a loss to understand Lewistown's reasons for holding on so tenaciously to this section when they must realize that they cannot properly administer this section at long range. Wo want a new county and want it badly. We need local improvements such as roads, bridges and better enforcement of law. As it is we have to go without these and pay our taxes and smile. As an example to show how we fare at the hands of the present administration we wish to site one instance. Last year with a road fund running way up into five figures there was ex pended on roads in the vicinity of Roundup about $100. Does this not sound as if we want to stick to Fergus county? IIE establishment of experi mental farms along its new coast extension is only anoth er proof that the Chicago, Milwau kee tfc Fuget Sound railway has its competitors in this state skinned a good city block when it comes to developing the territory it traverses. One of the finest dry farming sec tions along the new extension is that north of Roundup, and no doubt one of these farms conducted along scientific lines will he located here. O N February 27th the citizens of Roundup will decide at a special election to he held for that purpose whether they wish to incorporate as a city or not. As the Roundup Coal Company is pre paring to put in an eleetriet light plant sufficiently large enough to furnish power and light for the city and will ask for a franchise from th( l oily, the question then resolves itself into this, "Does Koundup want electric lights or not?" M ONTANA in falling right in line by establishing a pub licity bureau which the pre sent session of the legislature will undoubedly do. M a n y western states that have vast stretches of goervnment still open for settle ment have found this innovation a profitalde one. The varied resour ces of the Treasure State oiler an i exceptional field for t xploitation ! and much good to the common walth should result from it. ' p Tp'i!E new ruling of t!i" d. p.ir!

Unwieldy Fergus could be cut in to throe good sized counties and then leave another one,large enough to ht called Taft county. It is as hard for most people to write 1909 just now as it is for a newly married young man to say "my wife." M». STAYB0LT AS SANTA CUDS 8oms Thing« H« Would Llko to Glvo If Ho Could. "Do you know the Christina« pres ent I'd like to make If I could?" «aid Mr. Stsybolt. "I'd like to give cheer fulness to the downhearted; courage to the timid, and strength to the weak; the power of self-dealal to those who yield too easily, and a desire to work to the lazy. "I have often thought what a pity It Is that you can't buy all these things, thess helpful qualities, already put up and at Buch a price as to put them within the reach of all; canned cheerfulness, bottled hopefulness, courage in tablets, and strength, say, In the form of a powder, and so on; or you might, I suppose, put 'em all up canned, for that matter. ''But in the absence of such market preparations and our consequent In ability to buy such things and send them as gifts to those whom they might most benefit perhaps you will permit me to offer to each a word of suggestion. "To the dispirited take a cheerful view. To the downhearted, don't dwell on the doleful side. To the timid, don't be afraid. To the weak, or those who fancy themselves so, try your strength. You'll be surprised to find how much you've got. To those who yield too easily, deny yourself once, and again, and feel the joy and strength that will come back to you. To the lazy, get a job with a shovel, In a gang of laborers, under a driving boss; and if you are not glad to get back to your present job to do the best you know how at It, I miss my guess. "I can't send you these things in cans or bottles; but If anyone of you will take my advice and stick to It, you'll think that Mr. Staybolt was a very kind Santa Claus." CHRISTMAS PROVERBS The love-light In the eyes of the precious ones of the household is the most brilliant of Christmas Illumina tions. The soft Christmas light is not the least welcome where the shadows of bereavement have fallen during the year. The Christmas angels hover over such dwellings of sorrow in mln Istrits of divine love. It was the Christ who said: "It is more blessed to give than to re ceive.'' Again, he said: "Inasmuch as ye have done it to one of the least of these, my brethren, ys have done It unto me." •axxxx.
