ABSOLUTELY INDEPENDENT. Published at Glendiv'-, Dawson County, Montana by E. A. MARTIN. SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, $2.00 PER YEAR Entered as second-class matter March 3. 1905, at the postoffice at Glendive, Mont., under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1879. THURSDAY. NOV. 5. 1908. More Are Saving. "The theory that a few 'malefactors of great wealth' are absorbing all the money of the country" says an author ity on finance, "does not find support in the history of savings banks. The total deposits in 1898 were $2,028,409. The returns for 1908 show deposits of $3,990,553,945, an increase of 80 per cent in ten years. It was not until 1883 that deposits reached the billion dollar mark. Fifteen years later they were $2,000,000,00. Seven years brought them u'p to $3,000,000,000, that mark being reached in 1905. If no further interruption comes they will probably reach $4,000,000,000 by 1910."' One of the most encouraging signs of the times is the great increase of savings by the poor, even though the times have been comparatively hard the past year. A little pinch of hard times seems to have been a strong re minder to many that nothing pays better than to have a few dollars ahead in case of trouble, sickness or hard times. When the average Ameri can has learned that as the average foreigner has, we shall be a much safer people and government.-Dako ta Farmer. # oivrespondeizce. Here, There and Everywhere.

For nearly four weeks Mrs. Astor, who was 82 years of age, had d been in a critical condition, owing to the return of a heart affection that had given her trouble for y ears. Despite her advanced years, she con tinued no hold her social domination up to a year ago, when failing - health compelled her to retire into comparative seclusion. The society functions given and e presided over by Mrs. Astor were among the most brilliant ou record. It is said that the ballroom in the a mansion on Fifth avenue would ac e commodate 1,000 persons. It was a Mrs. Astor who established the fam ous "400" her visiting list being con fined to that number of names.

QUARANTINE ORDER MAY BE MODIFIED Helena, Oct. 29.-Dr. Robert H. Treacy, federal inspector in charge of this district, has been in Helena consulting with the livestock sani tary board relative to Governor Norris' proclamation against South Dakota on account of anthrax in that state, requesting that the sani tary board release their quarantine, stating as his reason that the disease was at present under reasonably fair control. The board was not willing to re lease the quarantine, but conceded a modification of it, permitting the shipment of domestic animals from South Dakota into Montana when propely certified by federal inspector under the further provision that all immigrant or other cars should be properly disinfected, together with their contents, under supervision of the federal inspector, certification of this fact to be made and certifi cate issued. The board at this meeting, also, on motion of the chairman, issued an order prohibiting the use of any commercial anthrax vaccine in the state of Montana unless certified and indorsed by the chemical division of the bureau of animal industry. The sanitary board further ordered " that no productive antitoxin or vac cine of any sort for veterinary pur poses be used in Montana, excepting ' when properly certified and indorsed " by the bureau of animal industry. This order is necessitated by the I fact that the use of commercial anthrax vaccine in South Dakota, Illinois and the Northwest territory has been followed by disastrous re suits; in fact, producing the disease instead of giving immunity from it. The federal authorities who have had charge of the anthrax outbreak in South Dakota have it pretty well in command, and it is believed no further cases will occur this year. The losses in South Dakota in the locality affected have been enor mous, particularly heavy among horses and cattle and especially so in swine.
