Last Number on Entertainment Course Promises to Be the Best of the Series. The last of the series of entertain ments given here this winter by the Midland Lyceum Bureau under the auspices of the Pioneer Club, will be presented in Stanley Hall next Saturday evening, March 12th, and according to press notices received here, promises to be the best num ber in the course. This number will be supplied by L. \V. Ford, the well known cartoonist, and will be an entertainment entirely different from anything seen in Roundup heretofore. L. \V. Ford was for many years cartoonist for the Syracuse Herald and other New York newspapers and built up a wide reputation by his skill in producing likeuesses, by the originality and strength of his ideas and the geniality of his humor. As an entertainer he makes use of these traits very successfully, and presents an evening of rare en joyment. His program consists of humeorous conceptions, caricatures, moral and political cartoons, scene ry and story illustrations. A distinctive feature of ^Ir. Ford's work is the fact that it is original, and covers such a field of thought and purpose that it at once becomes a strong lecture upon some of the vital issues of the day, and, hand led in such a satirical and humorous manner as to be intensely interest ing from start to finish. The car toons are not mere sketches, but well-drawn, eleborate pictures in full color. As a story-teller and impersonator Mr. Ford is particular ly strong, and he possesses a voice of rare cairying power, so necessary in a cartoonist, while he speaks with great forcefulness and magnetism.

Sufficiently "catchy" to be popu'ar; sufficiently "brainy" to be uplifting. The purpose of the Pioneer Club in securing the entertainment course was simply to provide the people of Roundup with some high class at tractions, and not with the idea of gaining anything financially there by. Thus far the Club has about broken even, and it is hoped that attendance at the coming entertain ment will be large enough to see them clear. There is no doubt but what the people of Roundup ap preciate the initiative taken by the Club in arranging for the course. Rid P&IICtt DHL AT HIM1U Archer and Kreichbaum Ranches of 2240 Acres Sold to East ern Company for $41,000. A deal was closed last week whereby a company of Ohio people come in control of the Theo. F. Aacherand Ed. Kreichbaum ranches near Musselshell. The deal involves 2240 acres and the consideration paid therefor was $41,000. The Archer ranch comprises SOO acres lying about three miles west of Musselshell, the owner relizing $20 an acre. $25,000 was paid for the Kreichbaum ranch which consists of 1440 acres and which joins the Archer ranch. Mr. Archer was in Roundup Wed nesday in connection with the public sale which he will have on his place to dispose of his stock and other personal property. The sale will be held Saturday, March 12th. It is understood that Mr. Archer will remove to Roundup and make his future home here, pro pably engaging in some line of bus iness. a rnmmm Reciprocity in the Boosting Spirit \ By Neighboring States. That the efforts of the people of Montana in assisting the residents of neighboring states in the up building and development of the Northwest are appreciated i n Spokane is evidenced in the senti ments voiced by Major Edwin A. Smith, editor of the Twice-A-Week Spokeman-Review of that city in an editorial in a current issue of that journal. He writes as follows: "With its fine valley lands for fruit growing, with its broad valley lands for general farming under ir rigation, with its empire-like areas to be brought under cultivation by dry-farming methods, Montana is waking up to her agricultural pos sibilities. "The agricultural college and ex periment station at Bozeman are taking advantage of this awakening, and are seeking not only to en courage but to guide and direct the movement along sane and profitable lines. "Professor L. B. Lindfield, di rector of the state experiment .sta tion, declares that the most important point in the settlement of new lands is in getting people started right; telling them what crops to expect first while they are getting on their feet. "The railroads are cooperating in the movement. For the last two years the state legislature has appro priated $11,000 toward farmer's in stitute and other extension work, the Northern Pacific railway has given $5,000, the Great Northern railway $2,000 and the Milwaukee railroad $2,000, making $20,000 in all." * W.
