Wills left his ranch about four weeks ago leaving no word as to where he was going. He was seen shortly after at Camp Pour and later in Roundup. Several parties also claim to have seen him walking down the track near the Newton ranch about three weeks ago. Since then all trace of him has been lost, and it is feared that he has met with foul play or been killed accidentally. A searching party was formed at Gage last Saturday, but a search of the river banks between there and No. 4 failed to disclose anything that may solve the mystery. The lost man is about 44 years of age, having come to Gage from Fort Collins, Colo., about seven years ago. He filed on a homestead one-half mile southwest of Gage and has made his home there ever since, alhough at times he has been working on differ ent ranches along the Musselshell and in the Snowy mountain district.

Wall and City Clerk W. J.

Alderman H. O. Britton, in his rapacity as president of the coun cil, acted in place of the mayor, while former Alderman A. W. Eiselein was appointed temporary clerk. The meeting was called expressly for the purpose of hearing objections 1 to the creating of the new district, > of which, however, there were none. ; It having developed that the boundar- j ies of the district had not been abso lutely correct in the previous reso- ! lution, and by reason of the fact that j several others wanted to be included, ' it was decided to amend the resolu tion and readvertise it. Objections will again be heard on the twentieth and bids will be opened at the same time to expedite matters. No other business was transacted, the council recessing until Monday, ! October 16.

Want Train Service - Citizens of Klein Petition C., M. P. S. Ry. for Passenger Service Between Roundup and Coal Camp. With the view of connecting Roundup more closely with the citi zens of Klein and vice versa strenuous attempt is now being made to have passenger Bervice inaugurat ed between the two places. A petl tion is being clrcluated among the citizens of the coal camp on Half Breed Creek praying the Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound Ry. to run a passenger coach on the work train between Roundup and Klein. This train goes to Klein every morning and afternoon returning to Roundup a few hours after arriving there. By putting a coach on this train excellent transportation facilities would be pro vided for the people of both Roundup and Klein, allowing them several hours to spend in either place between trains. This would prove a great benefit to the business men of Round up as well as the citizens of Klein, and it is earnestly hoped he railway company will grant the petition. The petition is being signed by practically every citizen of the camp. After all the signatures are secured the petition will be forwarded o the the petition will be forwarded to the Montana State Raillroad Com mission and then to the proper railroad officials. It might be well for the people of Roundup o take a more active hand in the endeavor to Becure the new train Bervice. There is no reason why a well direct ed campaign would not bring the de sired result. ORGANIZE LITERARY Young People Organize Society to Develop..
