A Big Strip Is Taken
Last Friday, County Surveyor Hur
dle brought word to the Monitor Office
of the segregation of over 100,000 acres
of some of the best of Dawson County
land for the benefit of the Turtle Moun
tain tribe of Chippewa Indians, now
living in North Dakota. The land in
question is situated approximately
some 65 miles west of Glendive and
includes some of the choicest town
ships in the county. Indian Allotting
Agent Armstrong has been making
the selections for the tribe in question.
It seems that this matter should be
thoroughly investigated before final
action is taken, and to that end, those
of our citizens interested ought to get
busy and see that no injustice is done
to the settlers in that part of our
great county.
Murder In Cold Blood
The little city of Wlbaux has been
the scene during the past week of
what appears to have been a nmzr
der entirely without provocation.
Frank Nelson, a young man em
ployed lih a livery stable, was shot to
death by Max M. Leakey, a round
up cook. The coroner's inquest
brought out the fact that Leakey
was an alleged bad man and that
Deputy Sheriff Wynn had taken a
gun from him a short time before.
Nelson was employed at Wolf &
Drake's barn. He had been told to
take Leakey's saddle horse, which
had been standing in the street, and
put it in the barn. Leakey became
enraged at not being able to find his
horse when he emerged from a
saloon, and going to the livery barn
he shot young Nelson down. The
young man was hurried to the hos
pital here, but died in a short time.
Leakey was arrested by Deputy
Wynn and brought to Glendive. He
will make his plea before Judge
Sanner tomorrow.
Miss Hackney, county superinten
dent, has granted the petition for a
new school district on the norte fork
of Lone Tree. It will be No. 49 and
Girard will be the possoffice. The
trustees are C. H. Gardner, J. L.
Corkran and H. C. Norton. Mr.
and Mrs. Gardner came in to attend
the hearing.
Services will begin again at the
Congregational church next Sunday.
Morning service at 10:30 a. m., and
evening service at 7:45 p. m. Mr.
Burhans will begin a series of four
illustrated lectures on Ben Hur or a
tale of the Christ. The frst will bE
given next Sunday evening. Each
evening's lecture will be illustrated
by fifteen large views. Seats freE
and everybody invited to attend.
On Tuesday, Aug. 23, at Livings
ton, occurred the marriage of James
Barry and Miss Ethyl Waddingham,
both of this city, Rev. Father Galla
gher performing the ceremony. ThE
young people will reside at GlendivE
where Mr. Barry has long been a
popular man in the train service and
Miss Waddingham has been for sev
eral years an employe of the division
storekeeper's office. Their many
friends unite in congratulations.
Grambs & Peet, the well knowr
plumbing firm, now have a large stockl
of material on hand at their shop ir:
this city, and are prepared to do an5
and all kinds of work in their line.
Remember that this firm installed thE

Fine Prize For Lady Winner
The following letter fr:gm the
Scheffer & Rossum Co., of St. Paul,
explains itself. Certain it is that
the winner of the ladies' re~ay race
will draw a splendid prize in addi
tion to the money consideration.
The letter follows:
St. Paul, Aug. 27, 1910.
' J. J. Stipek, Esq.,
e Glendive, Mont.
Friend Stipek:
With great pleasure we are send
ing you today by express, all char
k ges prepaid, a special prize lady's
d astride saddle, with bridle alnd sad
e dle blanket complete, which we
would thank you to unpack, exam
Sine and deliver in good condition to
the Dawson County Club of your
e city, with our compliments and best
. wishes.
d This saddle is to be contested for
on'the occasion of your County fair,
a in a special equestrian running race,
e by any of the brave young women
h of your section that may wish to en
d ter, under whatever rules or re
strictions that may be imposed.
In sending this prize, we do so in
recognition of that grand character,
our Western girl, who love's God's
- noblest animal, the horse, and in ap
e preciation of the friendly hospitality
e shown our Mr. Scheffer by the Daw
d son County Club upon his visit to
7 Glendive last year, and, further
n more, at the request of the superin
Y tendent and men of our saddle fac
tory, who wish to place before you
n all, a specimen of their department
k product, which they aver is of the
n best material and workmanship, so
Sfar as they can judge, to the best of
their ability.
The red, white and blue rosettes,
w which cover the permanent white
r- leather rosettes of the bridle, were
u placed there to add to the festive
at appearance upon the auspicious oc
- casion, and can be removed by cut
tf ting the thread inside of the bridle
front, and can serve as a troph3
which can be hung on the wall ol
the victor's room, if she so pleases.
The bit was selected by us for the
e grace of its form, and the qualit3
and strength of the material. Shouic
is a lighter bit or a different form b
I. desirable, another bit may be selec.
ted from our recent catalogue,
which you have. Should covered
stirrups be desirable, those sent
may be exchanged for such as may
be desired, upon writing us.
It is our wish that the victor, im
mediately after the race, place the
new outfit upor_ her horse, mount it
and ride up before the grandstand,
and that a photograph be taken of
her, mounted on her horse, if possi
ble large enough to show the figure
of the horse to be six and one-half
inches long, from the outside of the
tail in a straight line to the outside
of the shoulder, such photograph to
be hung up in our office.
We should like to hear of all the
details of the race, the number of
entries and the final result, as we
are much interested in the pretty
affair. We presume a program will
be issued.
In the meantime we send the
young woman that may enter the
race, the members of the Dawson
County Club, and you, our friendly
greetings.
Thanking you for attending to the
matter for us, we are,
Very Truly Yours,
SCHEFFER & ROSSUM,
Per Herman Scheffer, President.

STATE FAIR
Hamline, September 5-10
National Conservation Congress
St. Paul, September 6-7-8
Plan to attend both. Minnesota's State Fair has a national reputation
of being one of the greatest attractions of its kind held in the United
States and the Hamline grounds are nowhere surpassed in any feature.
The Conservation Congress being a national movement for the preserva
tion of our resources, the subject is of vital importance to every one.
President Taft, Ex-President Roosevelt and many other prominent men
will speak. The combination of two so important events affords an ex
ceptional opportunity, that will provide attractions for all. Fix the dates
and plan to go. You will profit. Several trains daily, going and coming.
