Local Comment
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
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.
