W. Byrle Chappell New County
Treasurer ]
Following closely upon the accepted
resignation, by the board of county
commissioners, of L. R. Barnett as ;
county treasurer, comes the appoint-1
ment, by that body, of W. Byrle
Chappell, assistant cashier of the Ex
change State Bank, to fill the vacancy
during the unexpired term of the
present incumbent. The appointment
was made at a special meeting last
Saturday. It is stated that' Mr.
Chappell will resign from his position
at the bank and will take up his new
duties on June 1st and continue in his
new position until next March when
the newly elected treasurer will step
into the place, and there is every
reason to believe that if Byrle will
run for the office, he will be tendered
it by the voters, who hold him in very -
high regard.
Mrs. Ruth A. Hoover-Johnson, Mother of
C^Sfckt Johnson* Died Tuesday.
Burial Today*
At 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, will
be borne from her late home and
thence to its last resting place in the
City cemetery, the body of Mrs. Ruth
A. Hoover Johnson, mother of drug
gist Bert Johnson of this city, whose
death occurred Tuesday night at 9:45
o'clock, the result of a general break
down due to a long continued illness.
Funeral services will be conducted
by Rev. W. B. Bliss in the Methodist
Church, Lowe Brothers having charge
of the arrangements.
Mrs. Johnson, who was well-beloved
by all who knew her, was born Sept.
1st, 1843, nearly 71 years ago, in
Lumberton, N. J., and moved to
Glendive with her husband and only
son, Bert, in 1893, from Camden, N.J.
She has been a widow for 12 years,
her husband who had been an N. P.
Railroad engineer for 25 years, meet
»ng w«th an accident at Big Horn,
Montana, in 1902, which later resulted
in his death.
Deceased was a member of the
Methodist Church and of the Ladies
0 f the Eastern Star, which organisa
tion attended the funeral in a body
She is survived by but two rela
tives. her son, Bert, and a sister,
Miss Emma Hoover, of Burlington,
N. J., the latter being unable to at
tend the funeral.
Mrs. J. M. Manson, of Miles City,
an old friend of Mrs. Johnson's,
when she heard of her serious illness
hastened to the city, but too late, as
she had by that time lapsed into un
consciousness from which she never !
Everyone mourns her lose as she j
was a Iways f ai thfu L-and loving wife
and mother and above all, a devout
and truly Christian lady.
Amateur Burglars Force Window. Steal
Cheap Watches and Rings. Seventh
of a Series.
The seventh of a series of robberies
of Mi ski men'3 store occured Wednes
day morning, presumably between the
hours of three and four o'clock, and
cheap watches and rings to the value
of $102 taken by the yeggs.
Fortunately all the more valuable
jewelry, was in the safe, which lucki
ly was not disturbed, although it was
evidently the intention of the burglars
to use the quarter pound of butter,
which they left behind, to stop up the
cracks around the safe door for the
insertion of nitro-glycerîh, and it is i
evident that they gave up the idea on
account of the approaching daylight.
Entrance into the store was effect
ed by means of a long metal bar, used
as a key on the brake-shoe of a rail
road car, and this answered as a
''jimmy" in prying up a back win
dow until the eateh broke. They left
via the window although it would have
been easier for them to have unlocked
the door. They evidently suspected
that the door contained a burglar
alarm and therefore did not take any
chances with it.
Nineteen watches, valued at from
$5 to $12 each were taken, as were
24 silver and enameled Blue-Bird
rings and a number of semi-precious
stones, although three trays full of
gold band rings and a tray of valuable
watch charms were not disturbed.
Not a single fountain pen was missing
from the unlocked case, although it
contained upwards of one hundred
dollars worth of that easily-peddled
One dollar and sixty odd cents that

Well, at last the long heralded and
eagerly expected opening of the base
ball season is to take place this com
ing Sunday afternoon, May 17th, when
the local boys will cross bats with the
strong Beacli aggregation at the city
ball park.
The game will be called at 2:30 P.
M. sharp, so be sure to come early
and avoid the rush.
The Glendive City Band will play
between innings and the admission
has been raised to 50c, which slight
increase will no doubt be soon for
gotten in the excitement that is sure
to follow.
Mayor Hagan, who is a most en
thusiastic "fan", will pitch the first
ball and Frank Hughes, president of
the Chamber of Commerce, who is
was in the open cash register was al
so undisturbed.
The robbery was discovered at four
A. M. by Officer White who on his
return down the alley to turn off the
lights, noticed that the window screen
had been removed since his former
trip at three o'clock. investigation
then disclosed the robbery, but the
birds had Down.
The police are inclined to believe

talent, and if that is true, they are
in hopes of soon locating the culprits.

worse,* will catch it.
Then the band will 9tart to play
the Beach Funeral Nfarch and ttfen
Dan O'Hern, the first man up, rips
out a rattling three-bagger—but we're
getting ahead of our story. R
Another thing that is well worth
the price of the admission will be the
"once over" of the new uniforms—
eleven brand new, spick and sp^n
Glendive costumes—11—count 'em.
Manager Healy and Captain Foss
have been putting in quite a few sun
shiney afternoons getting the park in
condition. They hired a traction
engine and a roller. Had the entire
field lowered about a foot and then
filled in with 50 loads of gumbo and
j some sand and gravel and then rolled
.it so that it now resembles a well
kept billiard table. If you don't be
