Norris Names Thanksgiving Day Helena, Nov. 10.-Governor Norris today issued the following Thanks giving proclamation: In accordance with an old and honored custom, the president of the United States has proclaimed Thursday, the 26th day of November, 1908, as Thanksgiving day. That the people of Montana may properly observe the day named and have opportunity to publicly give thanks for the splendid advance ment of tne past, for the great prosperity assured in the immediate fu ture, for the many blessings heretofore enjoyed and for those in prospect during the coming year. I, Edwin C. Norris, governor of the state of Montana, do hereby de signate Thursday, the 26th day of November, 1908, as Thanksgiving day. I earnestly recommend that on this day the people refrain from their usual vocations and meetfng in their homes and places of worship, give thanks to God for the many blessings conferred by Him, and ask His as sistance anq guidance during the coming year. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the great seal of the state to be affixed, at Helena, the capital, this the 10th day of November, A. D. one thousand nine huudred and eight, and of the independence of the United States the one hundred and fhirty-third. EDWIN C. NORRIS. By the governor: A. N. YODER, Secretary of State. WYMAN EASY WINNER In spite of a certain element who tried their utmost to down County Clerk Wyman at the last election, that gentleman finished the race an easy winner by several laps. And that also after he had performed practically no campaign work in his own behalf. The people of the county have learned to depend upon the efficient office methods of Mr. Wyman, and they know that we have no better county officer than he has proved himself to be. A change in the pres ent status of his office would work much narm to all concerned. And right here it may be stated that a person might search the whole state of Montana over, and he would not find a county clerk and recorder who has given more time and consideration to his duties than has Mr. Wyman. As long as he cares to remain in office the people can make no mistake in retaining him. His resignation from office or defeat at the polls would be a public loss. Coming Nov. 21. Without parallel is the record of "The Great Divide," William Vaughn Moody's sterling drama of American life which is to be present ed at the Glendive Opera House next Saturday, Nov. 21st. This re markable play is to be played to a larger number of audiences and in more distant lands than any other play of native manufacture, no less than a dozen translations being al ready made of this successful work for use in Continental Europe and elsewhere. While "The Great Divide" is beginning the third year of its triumphant career in this country, Henry Miller, the most famous of American actor-mana gers, plans to send out three com panies to tour these sections in which Mr. Moody's masterpiece has not yet been seen.

WONDERS IN SURGERY OUTLINED IN DETAIL Philadelphia, Nov. 7-The wonders of experimental surgery accomplished at the Rockefeller institute for medical research, New York City, were out lined yesterday before the opening ses sion of the American Philosophical so ciety in much greater detail than they have ever before been given to the public. Among the latest achievements of science described by Dr. Alexis Carrel, who has accomplished many of the most difficult experiments at the Rock efeller institute was the transplanting of one dog's leg on another dog's body. The fox terrier patient readily as sumed normal control of the new leg which was taken from a dead dog and within three weeks the wound showed only a scar and the dog was up and around on all fours, three that were originally his and one of the late la mented dog's. The transplanting of cat's kidneys into other cats even after the organs have been in cold storage sixty days has proved entirely successful. Human arteries and jugular veins have been interchanged and the patients have not lzen able to tell the difference. Application of the experiments per formed on dogs and cats to the rejuv enating of ailing humanity, is in the announced opinion of Dr Carrel, en tirely possible. Already the knee joint from the leg of a dead man has been used to replace the injured joint of a living person. A woman too weak to undergo a major operation has had her arteries joined to those of her husband and with the added strength of her husband's circu lation and heart action, has success fully undergone the shock of the sur geon's knife and survived an operation under which she would have otherwise died.

A distinguished English journalist by the name of Wallace is of the op inion that Germany is getting ready to fight the United States. If Germany is expecting to undertake a job like that, the longer she delays getting ready the better it will be for her. In fact, it will be better to postpone it altogether. Bismarck is credited with saying that a fight between England and Germany would be like a fight be tween a whale and an elephant. But a fight between Germany and America would be a bigger more tragic thing than that. The American fleet is sup erior to that of Germany and the sup eriority will doubtless be greater after the next Congress appropriates for another bunch of dreadnaughts. Then again, Germany has a magnificent mer chant marine dotting the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, the Bay of Bengal and the China Seas. Her im mense foreign trade would wither from the ocean in case of war with the United States. Nevertheless, Mr. Wal lace says that Germany is getting ready to fight the United States, all on account of the Monroe Doctrine and especially on account of her designs on Brazil. There are many Germans in Brazil and the Kaiser is supposed to look toward the addition of Brazil to the commercial diadem of Deutschland. In 1890, the population of Brazil was six and a quarter mill ions. Of this white population, the Germans numbered one and a half millions. Germany, of course, would like to have a new colony about the size of Brazil, which by the way has a little more territory than the Unit ed States, exclusive of AlasKa. But there's that doctrine of Monroe's. What's it all about? Hotel Jordan. Connected with this popular hos telry, said by commercial men to be the best between Dickinson and Bil lings, is the McIntyre annex and the Yellowstone annex, both used ex clusively as dormitories. Both are newly fitted and ranchers and stock men will find most excellent accom modations at low rates. The most exacting demands of traveling men are also supplied ad libitum by the proprietor, E. J. Berry. 14tf WANTED Horses and cattle to pasture, and will feed, if desired, at reasonable prices.
