Della Clarke In 'introduce Me"
Reports from the places where
Della Clarke's new comedy' "Intro
duce Me" has been presented in
dicate that it will be as welcome an
attraction as will visit this city dur
iug the season. In reviewing the
piece an Exchange says: "The biting
jest which an ungrateful and vicious
weather department handed this city
yesterday prevented but a small
crowd of theatre goers from witness
-ing "Introduce Me" as presented
at the Academy of Music matinees
and evening. This is largely to be
regretted in as much as the show is
an exceptionally clever one, well
staged and carried bv an admirably
well-balanced cast. Miss "Clarke,
authoress as well as star, deserves
great commendation in both capaci
ties and her support played with
Spartan indifference to adverse
conditions. Miss Clark's acting was
quite up to the considerable reputa
tion she enjoys and her own deter
mination infused each and every
member of the cast. Not a sign of
"soldiering" could be observed in
either performance which indicates
splendid pluck on the part of those
buffeted by a wintry fate. Miss
Clarke's role-that of the somewhat
neglected wife who unbeknowest to
her husband, wins great literary
success under the cover of a non de
plume is a broader one that that of
the Indian maiden in which we last
saw her. Tenderness, vivacity,
common sense and behind all a thor
ough yet quite feminine efficiency
were aptly portrayed. The in ter
pretation of the role was doubtless
immensely aided from the fact that
its creator was playing it but aside
from this there was ample evidence
of a very thorough study of the
possibilities. On proper occasions
the conscientiousness with which the
part was played throughout rose to
genuine brilliance showing very real
emotional power-the kind that grips
the audience and sweeps it out of it
self Folks interested in the stage may
as well make up their minds to keep
an eye upon Miss Clark. In "The
White Squaw" she demonstrated
that she has imagination, the truest
sensibility, and genuine constructive
talent. But "Introduce Me" is
leagues in advance of the earlier
effort. The imagination is surer,
the sensibility more appreciative,
the constructive power stronger.
The situations are evolved with de
lightful naturalness and the lines
fit them to a "T". It goes without
saying that the offering is as pure
and wholesome as a spring flower
It is a great pity that "Intr oduce
Me" cannot double back this way
betöre the warm weather in order
that the public at large may have
an opportunity to enjoy it unob
tructed by a driving sleet, two in
ches of slush and a dangerously
slippery pavement.
Intrinsically the play is interesting
and it contains the brightest of pro
mise wite regard to what its gifted
authoress may yet have in; store for
her public.

Two New Barns To Be Built
State Fair Grounds
Helena, Montana, June 11. —(Spec
ial) The new State Fair Board with
the sanction of the Sta*e Board of
Examiners have devised ways and
means whereby a certain proportion of
State Fair funds will be diverted to
erect two new stock barns so badly
needed at the fair greunds. A new
horse barn, a companion building of
the present horse barn, will be built
immediately, thus giving a double
capacity. An addition to the present
foreign sheep barn will be built mak
ing this building when completed 56
feet wide and 100 feet long and of
sufficient size to house the sheep and
goats. This will allow the fair di
rectors to use the present sheep barn
for caitle. This will give two cattle
barns, one for stock cattle and one for
dairy. With these additions ample
room for horses, cattle and sheep is
guaranteed. The 1913 premium cata
log is now being distributed; this book
indicates $30,000 worth of cash and
special premiums to the farmers of
the state and the secretary's office at
Helena is anxious to send every one
interested a copy.
Reunion of Pioneers
At Miles City
Notable Men of the West Will Meet
In Round Up Fashion July
3rd, 4th and 5th
Miles City Mont., June 11—Never
in the history of the West will a
more notable rounion of pioneers,
trail blazers and old timers beheld
than will foregathor at Miles City,
the first settlement in Eastern
Montana, on the occasion of the
35th anniversary of the founding of
the town to be held July 3rd. 4th,
and 5th. On the last bloody battle:
ground that was contested so
bitterly for years by the Northwest
Indian tribes and which finally
culminated in the annihilation of
General Custer's command on the
hills fringing the Little Big Horn
river in the county that still bears
his name, these pioneers will meet
their ancient foes: and in friendly
council will together review the
thrilling Western cowboy sports in
which the younger generation and
the last of the trained cowpunchers
will contest for the princely purses
offered to champions from all parts
of the country.
At 50 Below Zero It Was Hard to
Keep It Cool Euongn!
The old expression that "there is
nothing new under the sun" has
been given a rude shakeup by the
achievement of the caretaker of Old
Faithful Inn in Yellowstone Park.
Last winter his ingenious brain
devised the scheme of building a hot
house over one of the many boiling
springs in the vicinity of the hotel.
Realizing that there was a lot of
good heat going to waste which
might be corralled and used to
advantage, he bethought himself of
constructing a glass house over the
source of this heat for the develop
ment of plant life. The upper
part of the wooden frame-work was
filled in with old windows that were
discarded when the new Grand Can
yon Hotel was built two years ago.
Upon completion of his improvis
ed hot house, he immediately plant
ed lettuce, radishes, cucumbers,
tomatoes, and mushrooms, bringing
fertile soil from back in the hills and
constructing boxes in which to plant
his seed. There was no soil where
he built this green house for the rea
son that it was located on the hot
springs formation, where the crust
is lava and volcanic rock. Things
grew in the hot house like wild fire
while the outside temperature rang
ed anywhere from 20 degrees to 50
degrees below zero. The only diffi
culty experienced was in keeping
the temperature inside the hot house
down to the proper point for the
welfare of the plants' The heat
from the hot springs was so intense
that the problem of moderating the
temperature proved a serious one.
H. W. Child, President of the
Yellowstone Park Hotel Company,
has visions of serving mushrooms at
Old Faithful Ian this summer—-the
product of this unique and original
hot house where the crisp.and frosty
nights, so attractive to the tourists,
will have no terrors for the tender

Interesting Develop
ments in Oil
Drillers Strike Gas at a Depth of 700
Feet with a High Pressure
Considerable excitement prevailed
around town Wednesday when it was
learned that the oil well drillers had
struck gas and no small quantity.
A Monitor representative visited the
camp at Reedsville Thursday and
found it an easy matter to confirm the
report. The sizzling of the gas
could be heard for a mile away from
where the drill stands. The drilling
company was forced to shut down for
a day or two until they could remove
their engine to a safe distance to
avoid ignition and it was also nec
cessary to install a small electric
light plant to work by. Drilling has
now been resumed. Their seems to
be considerable difference of opinion
as to the significance of the gas find.
One of the men in charge of the drill
ing stated gas was often found in oil
belts, but that he thou £ht the present
hole too shallow for a real gas well,
at least in such quantities that it
would pay to "harness" it up and
utilize for commercial purposes. He
intimated that the well might bum it
self out in a few days.
On the contrary one of the direct
ors of the company, who lives in
Glendive made the positive statement
that the gas proposition would be
developed and piped into Glendive be
fore January 1st, to be used for heat
quarry of the school was started
last Tuesday, and is now being
operated by a class of six students
under his direction. The stone is

H. O. Morgan, who is connected
with the Glaspool bank as cashier
was married to Miss Bertha Belle
Lathrop at Northfield ,Minn., Tue
sday May 27. The newlv married
couple arrived in Fairview Sunday
and are making their home with
Frank Howe and family while their
permanent hpme in the Newlon
block is being fitted for them. We
welcome this family to Fairview and
hope they will like the place as well
as we do. We know of nothing
better to offer as congratulation.
So Sunday evening the Fairview
band serenaded the newlyweds, and
right here is where we discover that
the old. town is changing. Informer
years newly married people were
serenaded by an instrument known
as the horse fiddle and other
accompanying musical instruments
but on this occasion the dude band
played Mendelsohn's angelic tweedle
dum and after the music was over
everybody repaired to the Roundup,
and there drank s odawater. Yes,
actually drank sodaw&ter. The old
town ain't what it used to be. The
change makes me sad and forlorn.
For in place of the old horse fiddle.
You hear the tooting of a horn.

Temporary Bridge Oof
The temporary bridge across the
Missouri river was carried away by
logs and brush, Monday morning at
6 o'clock. This bridge has a very
poor foundation, the piling striking
rock when only a few feet below the
bottom of the river and is not able
to hold against a very heavy side
Btrain, we cannot say whether it
will be rebuilt again or not as the
permanent bridge is well under way.

ing and lighting purposes. He stated
that an inner lining or curbing would
be used in such a manner that the gas
could be taken care of at the same
time that the drilling for oil was con
tinued. From the same authority we
learn that five more drilling outfits
would be in operation in the local
field within the next six weeks.
We are not geologists enough to
venture an opinion of our own on the
merits of the new enterprise but the
general concensus of opinion seems to
be that the activity shown by those
mostly interested and on the "inside"
indicates that those who are doing the
operation believe they have something
worth while. There is no question
but that a thorough test will be made
of the local oil fields and an early
boom is among the probabilities that
may be looked for in this vicinity.
There is no gainsaying the fact that
if either oil or gas is found in paying
quantities it will prove the greatest
thing that ever happened to Glendive
and this part of the county. Here's
to the man that are spending their
money exploiting a proposition that
should be of everylasting benefit to
our citizens and the country. We ad
mire their nerve and hope it all
comes true.

Miss Frances Luke celebrated her
