Kntered as second-class matter June 6 1908 at the post ottlce at Koundup, Mon tana, under the Act of March 8.1879. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1911. A TRIBUTE. "As time goes on, the value of his services to Montana will become more evident. I think that his own people, even those of his own party, never ful ly appraised or justly estimated the indefatigable zeal, the indomitable en ergy, the unquestioning fidelity or the high order of statesmanship which Senator Carter devoted to the west and especially to Montana. The ele ments all mixed in him and I can think of no prominent person age of a wider range of information or of a greater catholicity of interest in men and things. Mentally and physically he was a dynamo of energy, and his spirit was so well poised and his mind so disciplined that I have never heard of his yielding to the petty moods of envy, malice or unkindness."— John Raferty, in The Treasure State.

Taft, .Who Visited Several Cities in Montana Yesterday. ' Another aviator, Eugene Ely, has met the fate of numerous other bird men, having fallen to his death in a flight at Macon, Ga., yesterday. It seems that the art of aviation is ask ing altogether too high a toll in hu man lives, something for which the public, however, is partly to blame. If people would be satisfied with more straightaway flying and fewer fancy stunts in corkscrew dips and thrill ing turns, it is likely that there would not be any more casualties than at an ordinary horse race at a county fair. But to be thrilled to a point where the heart stops beating seems to be a common human trait. Brother Allen of the Ryegate Week ly Reporter got a couple of heads on the front page of his paper mixed this week, and as a result has lia Wills, the missing rancher who i.as since been found, down as a murderer. Mr. Wills will undoubtedly be more careful next time he decides to leave home. The Chinese are showing the world that they can do something besides running laundries and hitting the pipe. The revolutionary idea, which reaches it height of perfection in South Amer ica, seems to be spreading all over the world, the present year having seen a number of successful revolu tions. Billings sure did make President Taft feel that the Sugar City was about the only thing that ever hap pened in the line of a live communi ty. You've got to hand it to the Bil lings boosters. The postoffice receipts of Chicago are said to be more than those of the New York office. This is accounted for by the immense mail order busi ness being done in Chicago. With fine prospects for another bumper crop next year, Musseushell county dry landers have every reason for feeling happy and contented. There was no immunity bat i ' for the bath tub trust. The government had the sign on them and took them in for a good scrubbing. Roundup overlooked something by not extending an invitation to Presi dent Taft while in this state. The Montana State Fair usually re sults in Helena getting a lot of roast ing. French government lias established in Paris a national office to aid visit ing motorists, free of charge. —o— Work has coumenced on the nett *250,000 plant of the Cincinnati Na i.onals. The grandstand will be en tirely of steel and concrete, oval in shape, and will have a seating capac ity of 24,u00. —o— Cotton, cane, corn and tobacco are not the only valuable products of the south. When it conies to turning out ball players, Dixie is entitled to crerit fur Ty Cobb of Georgia, Joe Jackson of North Carolina, and many others. —o— Pittsburg fight fans are indulging the hope that the game will be re sumed in the Smoky City this winter. Boxing contests in that city were put under the ban last April, as it was alleged that some of the clubs had vi olated he law. —o— A boxing circuit, something on the order of a baseball league, is now be ing talked of in the middle west and south. Indianapolis, Kansas City, Mil waukee and New Orleans are among the cities proposed for membership, the idea being to "uplift" the sport. * * * ******* * * * OCTOBER 20 IN HISTORY. * * * * ******* ** 18e4—Six Cardinals named by the Pope to accompany him to France for the Coronation of Napoleon. - 18-:7—The ports of Portugal shut against British shipping. 1815—Great hurricanes in Jamaica. lS2u—Spain rat.tied treaty ceding Florida t othe United States. 1S-Ü —Trafalgar Square, London, be gun.

St E mmd! f totes Interesting Items Gathered ^in the Roundup Public Schools. :: ADMISSION OF BEGINNERS. During the last two weeks, twenty children of school age have applied for admission to the beginners' class and have been refused, so a word of I explanation seems necessary. ! The following clause taken from the rules adopted by the Board of Irust ! ees will explain why beginners are ! not admitted at this time: "No pupil : shall be admitted into the lowest room j except during the first two weeks of or he first week of the second semes ter." \Ve are sorry to refuse pupils of school age but, since each beginner means a new class, we find it impos sible to admit them at all limes. A beginner's class will be started after our mid-term examinations, which will occur the second week after the holidays, nothing preventing. Further notice will be given regarding this class.
