commission," predicted Mr. Harmon,
"will be passed by the people if they
can be made to realize what it actual

equalization has fallen down on their
jobs to equalize taxes." Mr. Harmon
Speaking on the tax question Mr.
Harmcn told how some farmers in

interests of the state, represented by

to have the present rate of taxation
of farm property reduced from 30 per
cent to 25 per cent. He showed thru
out his talk that the Edwards people
neglected no opportunity to defeat
anything that Governor Dixon favor- j
Mr. Harmon spoke of the efforts
made to cut down the appropriations
for the state superintendent of schools
$29,500. This would have done away
with both the office help and the su
perintendent's salary. As Mr. Har
mon once filled this position, he knew
whereof he spoke.
In describing the efforts made to
defeat the legislative program of the
governor Mr. Harmon told of the
lobbying that went on at the capital
and said that some of the greatest
lobbies in the history of the state
were maintained thei'e this past win

there will be a large delegation of
Three Forks and Manhattan people i

The American Legion is issuing a
cordial invitation to all ladies to be
present at the match. Those who at
tended the first boxing match put
on by the Legion several weeks ago
speak highly in praise of the way the
matches are conducted by the local
club and it is hoped that there will be
a good attendance of women at the
coming bout. In former days wrest

Bozeman and with two of the best
middle weights in the state contend

not many people paid the ten ppr
cent penalty that was added after
the taxes became delinquent. Of

cent penalty. In order to obtain this
they must apply to the county treas

It is thought that the available
tonnage will figure quite largely in
inducing the Milwaukee to construct
the proposed line. As it is bue a
small portion of the Bozeman tonnage
goes via the Milwaukee whereas with
such a cut off to the main line that
road would have a more even break
for the business. The superintendent
of this division of the Milwaukee,
vhen approached on the matter, said
that were the cut off built it might
be entirely possible that the road
would run at least a part of their

Around summer fallowed fields in the
country where there w'ere tumble !
weeds the wind blew these against
the fence and then tore off rods of
barb wire and many miles of rural
telephone lines were put out of com
mission by falling poles.
In the country south of Manhattan
and on the bench a rather peculiar
condition exists. Here the tumble
weeds lined the fences. The wind
drifted in the dust, as snow drifts in
the winter, until the roads between
the fences are two to two and one
half feet deep in fine, powdered dust
and cars cannot get through. It is
said that in some places only a foot
that have stood for years have been
broken off, the tops of hay stacks
have been scattered over hundreds of
or so of fence posts and but one wire
appears above the dust.
All over the valley old cottonwoods
acres and even the fence posts have
been'broken off in some instances
where they were getting a bit old. For
tunately most of the winter wheat in
the valley has had a good start and
little or no damage is reported ss
done to that crop.
