Some people go about town with their heads sunk in between their shoulders, their chin resting just above the top button on their vest and the heels of their shoes worn down. They act altogether as though life was something to be endured rather than to be enjoyed. One is tempted to wonder is such an attitude and the viewpoint on life it suggests, ever pays. We all love a fighter. The man who squares his shoulders, puts some rep into his walk and goes after what he wants—and keeps going till he gets it—is the one who has both our respect and admiration. And such a man is generally a cheery sort of in dividual, with a kind word for every cne he meets on the street. People are glad to see him because he is cheerful ; and cheerfulness is the best tonic in the world. We all of us have our worries and our troubles and not all of us are naturally of a buoyant disposition, but we all can make our solves do what we will. Put on your cheerful coat when you come down town tomorrow, don't be afra'd, io speak when you see some friend. It may he harder to speak than to nod your head, in just that same valus û is worth more to him- In a small town like Bozeman, personal relations and friendship enter so largely into every day life that we can make them a source of continual and mutual jlea? ure if we choose. It pays to he pleas ant, pays even more to yourself than the other fellow. Why not iry it, seme of you grouches? Don't be so stuck on yourself. Are you getting milk from clean cows or from those infected with tu berculosis? Do you know? Do you take enough interest in your own health and that of your family to in sist on seeing the certificate of tu berculin test from your dairyman? These questions are timely ones right now. Most of the dairymen of Boze man have had their cattle tuberculin tested. There is no excuse for milk being sold from any cattle that have nut been subjected to the test as vet erinarians to do the work have been in the valley for several weeks. There is no city ordinance requiring testing by the people who keep one to four cows, and these people, because of the few animals they keep, are not re quired to test by the satte law. It is held by the best medical authorities that bovine tuberculosis is transmis sable directly to human beings. There is little doubt about it. Are you will ing for your family, your children, to drink milk from an infected cow? They don't have to drink it, for there is plenty of clean milk available. The fault is yours if they do. Better ask your dairyman if his cattle have been tested. Tubercular cattle have been found within the last few weeks with in the city limits of Bozeman, half of one small herd recently was killed be cause of their reaction to the disease. Were you getting milk from these cows? There may be more of them; the only safe way is to buy milk from a milkman who has a certificate of inspection. A great deal of money was spent by the county last summer in grading up dirt roads near Bozeman. So far as one can judge this money was prac tically wasted, for of all the roads leading into town, the Huffine lane is the only one passible at the present time. As an instance of wasted ef fort take the roads across the East Gallatin bottoms. They were grad ed, sharply crowned and big ditches dug at either side of the road proper. The result is that at the present time the middle of the road is virtually impassible and the sod at the sides is not available because of the ditches which force all vehicles to keep in the middle. It would seem that there is little use in keeping up this drastic grading work. W'hy not take the money and put a gravel top on the roads? Of course such a top would cost far more, but once it was finish ed the road would be at least passible in all sorts of weather. Grades are now established on most of the main roads—if there is any money to spare, which there probably is not, it should he spent for something more enduring than the work of a tractor and a ma chine grader that uses no discretion, but makes a standard width of every road over which it passes. If we are geing to spend money on the roads, let's build for permanence and service. There is almost complete unanimity of opinion among the people of Boze man that, should a city manager be put in here, he should be an out of town man. Our only reason for want ing a city manager is to get out of debt, to run the affairs of the city in a more business-like way and to bet ter financial advantage. No man who is not thoroughly familiar with the work and duties of a city manager can do this, and for that same reason no local man is qualified for the position. We want to profit by the experience of others, not perform any more ex periments of our own than we have to. If w'e are to take advantage of what others have done, we must need get a man who has made a success else where, who has met the same prob lems that will confront him here and conquered them. A stranger coming into Bozeman could work unhampered by the obligations of friendship, un fettered by any formerly political ties; he could put the right man in the right place without fear or favor. And that is what the people want—a plain, business-like administration of the affairs of the city. nnnnnnnnnunnnn n n ** j the Watson home.

One man will f.nish at Three Forks this evening and will go oh into the Madison district, the other still has work to do around Willow Creek.

Here no work at all has been done this spring but County Agent Bodley and his veter af inarians expect to get there soon ter the first of the month. There are two encouraging factors in the tuberculosis work in the coun ty. One is the small number of ani amls reacting to the test. The per centage of tubercular animals found the past three weeks being something taken in the work by the farmers, The [farmers are giving every co operation to the federal men, are linging up the territory for them to test and even taking them from farm to farm in the coux'se of their like one-half of one per cent. Anoth er encouraging feature, to those in work. While even when the district above mentioned have been covered, county will not be absolutely clean, there will remain only a few scatter ed places where no testing has been done. Agent Bodley will see that these are tested as soon as practi cable, as it is his desire and the wish of most farmers in the county that the Gallatin be given a clean bill of health and win the honor of being the first tvl ciculosls-Cree county in Montana.
