One of the prominent press asso
ciations of the country recently sent
editors of the country asking their
attitude on the question of legisla
tion affecting tobacco- As the ques
tionaire explained, this has not yet
reached the controversial stage as yet,
but there is no telling what the rather
fantical reformers will attempt, and
the information was desired to guage
the sentiment of the country,
bill against tobacco was recently in- •
traduced in the Utah legislature and
the Salt Lake post of the American
Legion suggested some ammendments
which turned the thing into a farce.
Speaking of these ammendments at
the club the other night a local busi
ness man remarked, "There are two
things the Legion post neglected to
include in their ammendments to the
Utah bill. One was a regulation or
law against wearing corsets, which
are far more injurious to health
than is tobacco. If they are going
to cut out tobacco for the men they
should cut out corsets for the women.
Still another ammendment which
should have been included is a law
against afternoon card parties- Our
wives go to bridge parties, spend
the whole afternoon in a close, stuffy
room under a high degree of ner
vous tenion, fill their stomachs
with a rich mass of indigestible
French pastry and fancy cocking and
then go home, tired, cross and half
sick and set out a cold supper for
Yheir husbands. I have no objection
to women going to card parties if
they wish to, that is the'.r business,
but surely the tobacco habit is not
as injurious to health as are these
parties and the habits of lacing up
in tight corsets." It is probably all
a matter of viewpoint, but a pointed
suggestion from most conservative,
thinking people is for the reformers
to let well enough alone.

gained by trying to throw some of the j
weight on the other fellow's should- ;
ers? It is probably the same motive ;
that leads people to go into all the !
gastly details of their recent opera- '
tion. Why tell it? The ether people !
aren't interested in the repairs made I
to your internal engine. It is told \
that a Bozeman woman recently went
to a sow party where the main topic
of the conversation was about oper
ations that this woman or that had
asked her if she had a good time at
the party she said, "1 thought I was
£oing to a Kensington, instead of
that it was an organ récital.' Trou
hies, troubles, everyone has them. No
day but that brings with it some
new problem to vex and fret, but
why ted them? The world isn't in

Bozeman is too small a town, our
traffic is not heavy enough, for us
to ever stop jay-walking, cutting

of strict traffic rules that obtain in

on Main street. Trucks go through
the main business portions of a city
at a speed that is positively danger
ous,' trucks heavily laden with coal

winter's slippery pavements, it »is

THE $400.000 TOURIST

This is a business v/orth studying,
a patronage worth fostering. It is
probably true that but few would ex
ploit these casual visitors because
they will in ail likelihood never come \
again. On the- other hand, this im- j
mense trade has been accepted by ;
Montana busine s men largely as a.
matter of course.

Can we make sure that the customers
of last year will rembmber us and pay
us a visit if they come out this year,
or direct their neighbors to seek us
out when coming to the park? Can
our town make them more welcome
during the coming year than it did in
the past? '
The tourist business, many think,
is in its infancy. It is worth consid
ering, worth fostering, worth going
after. There are many reasons why
the tourist should find kind hospitali
ty and the best of service everywhere
