Geo. N. GKlFFHf, Master. h.b. Thompson, Secretary, Unity Lodge F. A. & A. M. OF ROUNDUP mas (dir fin Dates Are Advanced to Avoid Possible Storms. The directors of the Fergus County Fair association have decided to ad vance the dates for the fair next fall two weeks, and it will accord ingly be held September 7. 8, and 9. Last fall a snow storm made the fair a failure and it is believed that this change will at least lessen the risk of another experience of that kind. The races are to he made a big feature of the fair, and very liberal purses will be hung up for the var ious events. \V. D. Symmes, O. \V. Beiden and Horace Hill have been appointed to work out the program. An unusually fine display of grains and other agricultural products is expected this year, and later they will be sent to Helena as the exhibit from this county at the state fair. Nams Will Remain PhilbrooR The latest reports from the post ofiice department at Washington in dicate that in spite of the alleged threats of Jim Hill and the renewal of the old fight to change the name of the new town of Philbrook, on the Billing tfe Northern railroad in this county, it will stay Philbrook, says the Inland Empire. Last Fri day the assistant postmaster gener al stated that, in view of more than vigorous protests which had been made, the name would not be changed. Some time ago when the first campaign to change the name was started many petitions were filed with the post office department fav oring the change, but it was alleged that most of those names were those of laborers on the Billings & North ern construction work. Thorough investigation was made and the postofliee department refused to change the name. Just recently attempts have been made to try to open the case anew. Representative Pray declined to recommend the change from I'liil brook to Ilohson; while Senator Carter favored the proposed new name and recommended the change s< op- j to the postofliee department, tor Dixon, being unalterabl ■cd to discarding the name of l'h il brook, made a vigorous protest to the assistant postmaster general and presented a protest of 800 citi zens of Fergus county, who live ad jacent to the new town. Upon this showing. Senator Dixon was again assured on Fridav that no change would he made. Grass Range News. The Ayres children who have been sick are improving.

The position of traffic manager is newly created and it is assumed that Mr. Calkins' headquarters will be in Seattle.
