Hitting U/>e Nail on Uhe Head AS YOU WOULD BE DONE BY A farmer may the better under stand one of the controversies that has rLen between the railroads and the railroad administration if he consider the principles involved as they w'ould affect him. Suppose, for instance, that a farmer loaned a 1, S00 pound horse to his neighbor at a certain wage per day, with the agree ment that the horse be kept up to his normal weight. When the horse is returned, he is 40 pounds under •weight, which will require of the t.vrner a lot of feeding to get the back to normal working condi If the owner protests, will it le a sufficient answer for the bor h lion. rower to .say: "After 1 took your, ive, the price of feed went up, and 1 spent as much money for feed as v d have been necessary to keep in good flesh at normal prices."

REPAIR OF MONTANA ROADS, j (From Montana Record-Herald.) The people of the flood wasted re ! gions in the eastern part of Mon tana, where roads w'ere destroyed by | cloudbursts and overflow from rivers and creeks, will be pleased to learn that the federal government will par ticipate in the replacement of such highways in all cases wherte they were originally constructed through federal aid. Announcement that this reconstruction work will be commenc cd at once, when full reports of the damage done and the extent of re ; lacements required have been receiv « ed, has been made by Chief Engin ' eer Edy of the sate highway commis sion. The counties in which most injury to roads was sustained during the re cent period of floods are Wibaux and Dawson. In those counties and other? which had a similar experience though on a smaller scale, the fed eral aid highways will be restored to their former efficient and satisf ac tory condition. Besides this reconstruction work, i which will be done under the super vision of the state highway commis sion and the direction of Highway Commissioner Lanstvum, other work, in which the federal government will co-operato in meeting costs, will soon be instituted, while the work going on will continue to be pressed. Among the new projects upon which work will be started within a short time is the road on the Eighteen-Mile hill south of Butte While the washouts of roads by floods this spring adds to the labor of the highway commission, and calls for more money from both the coun ties and the federal government, the road building program is proceeding satisfactorily, and this year will re cord much construction work. A BIG BUSINESS TANGLE. Some conception of the task before Chairman Lasker of the 'shipping board may be gained when it is real ized that there are about 900 law suits pending against the board, in volving $50,000.000. Nine hundred are claims pending before the claim department of the board, involving between $50,0000.000 and $100,000, 000. and some 1,700 admiralty cases are awaiting determination. Nobody knows where the records of all those cases are, who the claimants may be, or what the amounts are that are claimed. The suits involve hundreds of million dollars of the people's mon ey. yet the interests of the govern ment have been in charge of young 'awyers emnloyed at ridiculously low salaries, who are compelled to meet the highest raid 1 egal experts in the country. Chairman Lasker has an T,nunc °d that he will seek authority f ° ern Pi°y really big men to get the Government out of the biggest bnsi ness tangle and financial wreck that the world has ever known. NOT THEIR KIND. The socialist national convention at Detroit had a throe-hour fight as to whether they should include "dicta torship by the proletariat" as a part of the socialist doctrine. It ended in defeat- The leaders of socialism have no great liking for dictation by the -working class than by the so called capitalist class. They want to do their own dictating. TO STRIKE OR NOT TO STRIKE. Strike ballot have been sent to all members of every railroad union asking them if they would accept the 12 per cent wage reduction order ed by the railroad labor board. It is/ the belief of the union chiefs that the men will vote against the decrease. The referendum is equivalent to a vote as to whether not trans strike if I they think such action will increase their standing in the community, as or our portation systePn shall continue to op erate. Two million men, who happen to be employed on the railroads, un dertake to determine whether 100, 000,000 of their fellow citizens shall continuent© be supplied with food and fuel. Of course they will not vote to strike unless they thought their strike would be effective, and to be effective it would have to bring mis ery and suffering to the country. Such sublime arrogance it would be difficult to duplicate. Let the mem bers of the brotherhoods Thej will find that the railroads will operate just the same, even though there may be temporary interruptions and that the net result of their de monstration wTil be to bring denun ciation upon their own heads. SAILORS RETURN TO WORK. The nation-wide strike of marine ! workers has been declared off. It was started on May 1st, and after two months of idleness the firemen and sailors are to resume work with out any agreement. The strike gain ed nothing for the men, and was the cause of great inconvenience and loss to the shipping public. SEA POWER MAKES HISTORY. A prominent periodical remarks that the three great nations, the United States, Great Britain and Jap so situated geographically that their fleets are incapable of at tacking each other. That is to say, because of the distance an attacking fleet would have to go, the fuel and ammunition problem would be pro hibitive. In one sense that is so, but in practice such would not always be the case. If Japan chose to make war upon the United States, an, are she would not send her fleet across the Pacific; she would sent it to the Phil ippines, take the islands, and then sit back on the defensive while the United States entered upon the al most impossible task of retaking the possessions. Moreover, if the United States desires to attack Great Brit ain, which of course is inconceivable, we would not send a fleet across the Atlantic, we would take possession of nearby British territory and sit I back on the defensive while Great I Britain sought to regain the property I taken. Great Britain could not well I pursue such a plan of attack against = the United States, neither would the s plan work to the advantage of the I United States in case of a desire to I take the aggressive against Jaean. I A study of the situation I the theory that none of the three I great nations could conduct I gressnve naval warfare. Invasion of § any one of the nations by another, I or the blockading of her ports, is § manifestly out of the question, but I an aggressive naval warfare is never | theleas practicable, and such would I be the means by which a war would I be settled. If German had I ceedcd in her submarine plans, hors s would have been the victory. overturns an ag suc COURT HOWARD MARRIES LIVINGSTON GIRL 0 — ■ " - .

Camels are as good as it's pos sible for skill, money and lifelong knowledge of fine tobaccos to make a cigarette. • Nothing is too good for Camels. And bear this in mind! Everything is done to make Camels the best cigarette it's possible to buy. Nothing is done simply for show. Take the Camel package for instance.. It's the most perfect packing science can devise to pro tect cigarettes and keep them fresh. Heavy paper —secure foil wrapping—revenue stamp to seal the fold and make the package air-tight. But there's nothing flashy about it. You'll find no extra wrappers. No frills or furbelows. Such things do not improve the smoke any more than premiums or coupons* And remember—you must pay their extra cost or get lowered quality. If you want the smoothest, mellowest, mildest cigarette you can imagine—and one entirely free from cigaretty aftertaste, It's Camels for you. L i*r. 1 !
