Entered as second-class matter June 6, 1«08 at the post office at Roundup, Mon tana. under the Act of March 8. 187«. FRIDAY, APRIL 2 1900, ONE YEAR OLD ITII this issue The Record starts on its second year of existence, having rounded out its first year with the last issue. It has been a prosperous year and we feel truly thankful to those who have contributed to make it so. There have been many changes in Roundup, and what was nothing hut a coal camp in the first stages of development when The Record first commenced publication, is now i thriving little city rapidly ap proaching the 2.000 mark and with every prospect of keeping up the pace it has set. We are not here to make any claims hut if we have been in strumental in helping in this growth and in bringing about things for the betterment of Roundup, well and good. We hardly think we've done any harm, anyway. In keeping up with the rapid growth of the town we have found it necessary from time to time to increase the size of The Record until it lias grown from an unassuming four-page sheet, two pages of which was patent, to an eight-page all home print paper, and we propose to keep on growing. We have at all times endeavored to reflect the happenings of our city and herald its advantages abroad in the best possible light, and our one aim has been to boost Roundup and the great Musselshell Valley in the heart of which it is situated first, last and all the time. How well we have succeeded is left to the kind consideration of our readers. The growth and prosperity of The Record is due in a great mea sure to the liberal patronage accor ed it by the business men of the city, and to them we are truly grate ful. We hope to he able to merit a continuation of their good will and business in the future and thank them for what they have already done for us. In addition to this we feel that our efforts are being appreciated by the people of Round up which shown by the many favors extended and kindly expressions of a complimentary nature. It is such feeling as this which makes life worth living after all, and it has surely contributed much in making our residence in Roundup a pleas ant one. The coming year will undoubted ly see as great a erhänge in our city as the past year"has, and it shall he our endeavor to progress with the city and to publish a paper that will he a credit to Roundup as well as to the publish er. A. W. Eiselein. ©urns rp m in D REES growing along the streets and highways, in parks and other public places and about private premises will furnish a pleasing shade in season and add beau tv to the surroundings. This is the ornamental side oi tree planting. Trees planted on barren and denuned moun tain sides and in the waste places will in time furnish timber products of value and afford protection to the watersheds. This is the practical side of tree planting. The planting of trees awakens in the planter a high appreciation of things beautiful and creates a greater regard* for the things practical that do not mean immediate profit. The federal, state, county and municipal governments should engage in, provide for and in every reasonalbe way, encourage tree planting for both or namental and practical purposes. To further this most worthy purpose and in accordance with the statute in such case made and provided, Tuesday, the 11th day of May, 1909, is hereby designated as Arbor day. On this occasion the citizens of the state should devote at least a portion of the day to tree planting and culture, and in school such exercises should be conducted as will give to the children a fuller knowledge of and a greater love for the grow ing of trees. ' EDWIN L. NORRIS, Gov. 6, a to DON'T WORRY A NUMMER of newspapers over the state are'worrying them selves into a frenzy over the prospect that Roundup will be un able to find someone qualified to hold the office of mayor in the new municipality. True it is that the statutes require that a candidate should have been two years resident of the city, hut no provision is made touching the qualifications of a mayor in towns that have grown up in less than a year to a popula tion sufficient to entitle them to be incorporated. There is a maxim of law which says, "The law never re quires impossibilities." Therefore, as Roundup has not yet been in ex istence for two two years, it would be requiring an impossibility of us to find a candidate duly qualified I under the statutes to hold the office. ! The Record understands that in the election held a Moore on Tues day on the incorporation question electors who were not registered at the last general election but who were otherwise qualified were al lowed to vote according to a decis ion of County Attorney Huntoon. Just why Moore was favored in this respect is not quite clear to us. Hardly a day has passed the past few months but what some news paper in the state has come out with some brand new railroad to help develop the resources of this great commonwealth and to fill its columns. If all the projected lines would materialize the map of Mon tana would look like a cob web and it would take a fellow a week to fig ure out how to get anywhere. After buttoning and unbuttoning those 500 buttons on his wife's new Paris gown, hubby will enjoy a beautiful night's rest playing "Mut ton, button, who's got the button?" in his sleep. **•..........V *h/dH+. qV-PAaM tiiTTL GEORGE M.

Foskett Are Inves tigated by Prof. William James of Harvard and Others and Arouse Wonder. Boston.—The marvelous psychic power of Fred E. Foskett, a young ma chinlst of Orange, Mass., has attract ed the attention of Prof. James of Har vard and other leading members of the Boston branch of the American Society of Psychical Research, who have given him tests. The first of the tests was held at the home of Prescott F.-Hall. Prof. Wil liam James and several well-known physicians were there, and test con ditions as nearly perfect as possible were made. Foskett was seated in the center of a room before a small table. There he performed every feat of the Hindoo fakir and the Buddhist adept. On the table was an ordinary kero sene lamp with a chimney and a flat wick, a pan and several quarts of al cohol. According to the reports of those present, Foskett succeeded in every test. Before beginning the test Foskett took from 2U to 30 deep breaths. The first test was made with ordi nary sulphur matches. Foskett lighted half a dozen, one after the other, hold ing them with one hand so close to the fingers of the other that the flames curled around them. He then lighted the lamp and held his hands above the oi r&CD. rOSXJiTT wick, while the flames curled over them and the soot completely black ened them. From one of these tests to another Foskett went, while the scientists held their breath and watched every motion until he came to the climax. In this he poured a quart of alcohol Into his basin, lighted it and then washed his hands, bathing them for nearly ten minutes in the burning fluid, washing It up over his arms and to his face— literally bathing himself In blazing alcohol. That completed the test,. As scon as it was finished the phy sicians present examined Foskett, and they could not find the slightest trace of a burn or blister. Foskett told them that the flames did not give him the slightest sensation of burning; that he felt comfortably warm and pleas ant, and nothing more. The second tests were made the next afternoon at the home of Prof. James In Cambridge, and under the ■ante conditions as the day before. Considerable mystery is thrown about them. Mr. Hall said they were so ■tartling that he did not care to dis cuss them until they had been tried again. Another scientist who was there said that Foskett performed all of his experiments of the day before, and then "absolutely and positively de materlallzed." "He seemed to dissolve Into thin air as we watched him. Was gone 41 seconds and then materialized. It was so startling that we, I am afraid, loat sight of the test conditions, and we have asked him to appear before us again. It seems unbelievable, but It certainly seemed so. W T e hardly know what to think about it." Prof. James refuses to talk about the tests. Vccording to those who were pres . Foskett seems In a passive state during the tests, and he says he thinks of nothing in particular. Those who examined him discredit the hypnotic theory. They believe he has some la tent psychic force that never has been studied. It Is intimated that the secret lies in taking the deep rhythmic breaths, which, it is declared, is the foundation of the development of the power taught in India and the orient cen turies ago. By certain methods of breathing, it is taught by the ancient* that in solitude and fasting the pow er of handling fire, receiving messages from astral bodies and other phenom ena can be accomplished. Prescott F. Hall, o fthe American 8ociety of Physical Research, said he was soon to prepare a report for a scientific publication. "Foakett's pow er," said Mr. Prescott, "is not hyp notic and it is a power well known in the orient, where fire handling ia done extensively. It used to be a test to see whether a man was guilty or oth erwise of n misdemeanor; if he took the fire test and wa9 not burned, ha was considered innocent; if he was burnt' 1 he- had to suffer the punish ment."
