Broderick showed class as an infielder. Hanson has that big league pep as has also Hack Nelson, who cracks them hard. Thresher has been going carefully with his arm so that when the time comes for him to pitch he will have no trouble in going the full route of nine innings. Archie Mack playëd in the outfield on Sunday and showed on twc or three occasions that he knows how to act in the outer gardens. His judgment of fly balls is excellent. In a few days the executive com mittee of the base ball team will make an attempt to get a schedule.

Chamber of Commerce Meet A general meeting of the Chamber j of Commerce was held last Friday evening. Several important things j were considered, most especially that | relating to the initiation of a market | day as well as a public market place. | May 4th has been selected as a clean-up day in the city. The Public Improvement Committee, which num bers nine persons, will district the city and on clean-up day will see to it that the citizens lend assistance to the city in making the city cleaner. The possibility of incorporation was left for discussion at the next meeting. A suitable appropriation was made for the maintenance of a base bt.ll team for the coming season. 1 ! Kill«* Two Birds With One Stone Aside from paying a visit to the country of Norway, as the Montana representative of the number who represent the United States at the centennial anniversary of the birth of Norway as a nation, Jens Rivenes, one of the prominent attorneys of our city will try a very important lawsuit while visiting the city of Stavanger, Norway. The suit involves the por tion Swere Undem has in an estate that was left his family by the de cease of his father a short time ago. Inasmuch as the estate is valued at several thousand dollars, the claimant deemed it advisable to retain Mr. Rivenes to prosecute the claim while visiting on the continent.. He left Tuesday for New York where on May 5th he will leave for his home in Norway. Great Northern Railroad Renewing Operations The country tributary to Fairview is again the scene of railroad activ ities. The Great Northern railroad has already put a force of men into McKenzie county, N. D., where work on new grades is about to start. Word lias been received that the railroad work will be renewed as well in tha vicinity of Lambert. Fox Lake is about to be dredged and this will take several months. The grading west of Lambert to Circle, however, will be continued during the months that are to follow. The Market Place The public market place is as old nearly as history. In ancient times aa well as today it served as a means of reducing the cost of living. It puts the husbandman in closer touch with the man of business. It made the raising of stock and produce more profitable to the tiller of the soil. At this time the local Chamber of Com merce are considering the feasibility of a market place and the appoint ment of certain days as market days where the farmer can bring his stock or produce and know that he will re ceive a buyer for what he has to dis pose of. It has been suggested that every other Saturday be more desir able than every Saturday. It would appear that ever Saturday would be more convenient for the farmer. If every Saturday were a market day it would not alone stimulate bus iness but it would not in the least cause the farmer any less convenience when he makes arrangments to come to the city. The housewife would be able to get the produce she wishes and feel that it is no more than a week old. A weekly market day would put the farmer in closer touch with the consumer. Without it there would be a tendency to neglect the observance of a market day for the reason that they come at intervals none too desirable for who wishes to avail himself of the opportunity af forded by a city market place. Young Man Struck By Lightning Earl McFarlin, aged 17, was struck and killed by lightning in the vicinity ol Burns Creek on Friday afternoon. While in the field sowing grain a storm came up suddenly and before he could get under cover a bolt of light ning hit him killing him instantly. The team of horses that he was driving were so badly injured that they will probably die. Glendive To Have A City Band Still further evidence of the civic progress of the Gate City this season is the creation of a city band. Geo. Old N. P. Employe Receives Promotion -3» M. Jones and nearly twenty others who are interested met on Tuesday evening at the opera house for the purpose of perfecting organization and the securing of the necessary instru ments. There is no doubt but that the Chamber of Commerce will ap propriate a suitable sum for the worthy innoyation. The new organ ization will meet again on Monday evening. All who are interested in music and who would find it possible to take part are asked to be on hand. -3» Chautauqua During The Summer Arrangements were made yesterday for the staging of the first Chautauqua festival for the city of Glendive, to be here during the second week of July. Those who were especially in terested in the movement conferred with 0. E. Behymer, advance man for the Ridpath Chautauqua Ass'n. A committee consisting of Messrs. Rev. Grafton, R. T. Hunt and H. T. Allen and Mesdames Gilmore and Perham have taken the matter in hand and will exert every effort to make the Chautauqua a success. Five days will be given to the festival with two shows each day.

Rapelje Steps To Assist ant General Manager Of N. P. System Word has been received that John M. Rapelje, former General Supt. from Paradise to Mandan, has been promoted to the office of Assistant General Manager of the Northern Pacific system. This will come as good news to his many friends and old associates on the Yellowstone Division that worked with him when he was running freight, and his ad vance up the ladder has not changed him ps a man, he is the same John Rapelje of old with the men. HÎ3 rise to one of the most important posi tions ou the Northern Pacific road has been the result of earnest effort in behalf of his employers. He started at the bottom and during a period of 2& years has been rewarded with a place among the officers of the N. P. which necessitates a wide range of experience in the business of railroads. In the future the ruw Assistant Gen eral Manager will reside in St. Paul. May Open Crow Reservation Billings, Mont., Apr. 25.—Cato Sells, United States Commissioner of Indian affairs, is coming to Billings personally to investigate the proposed opening to settlement of 1,800,000 acres of the Crow reservation.
