notes The cuts for the Dawsonian are here, and work on the annual has actually begun. Soon Dawson County will be reading the literary works of some of the High School's promising young writers. A tennis tournament was planned for the week beginning Monday the nineteenth but as a number of the players failed to appear, all the games were not played. However, in the games that were played scores were as follows: Senior girls vs. Sophomore girls, 6 to 3 in favor of Seniors. Senior boys vs. Sophomore boys, 6 to 3 in favor of the Sophomores. Special girls vs. Freshmen girls 6 to 1 in favor of Specials. Special boys vs. Freshman boys, 6 to 0 in favor of Freshmen. Special girls vs. Senior girls, 6 to 0 in favor of the Specials. The Dawson Çounty High School will soon be noted for its graceful boys 'and girls if this enthusiasm over ten nis continues. The best results in physics this weea were made by Perl Brown. The sub ject was specific heat, and the values she found were: lead, .099; copper, .033. The correct values were: lead, .093; copper, .031. During the past week the best pen manship exercises were handed in by: (1) Ruby Harpster, (2) Vera Larimer, (3) Mary Hagan, (4) Bessie Griffin, (5) Raymond Graham. A perfect record in spelling for the past week has been made by Bessie Griffin, Madge Baldwin, Vera Lari mer and Elsie Herwig. For the last five weeks Elsie Herwig has been the only one who has received 100%. Re cently Mary Hagan received credit for a run of eight weeks but Ethel Martin has set the record at twelve. Harry Johnson received the highest mark 96, in a word-sign drill in the junior stenography class. A joint contest on word-signs will be held this next week between the Junior and Senior Stenography classes. There is considerable rivalry develop ing between these two classes. The commercial department recent ly received a handsome picture of the largest typewriter ever built. It is a huge Underwood machine, twenty one feet by fifteen feet and weighs fourteen tons. This monsterous ma chine is on exhibition at the Panama Pacific Exposition where it arouses the curiosity of its beholders by writ ing the same as an ordinary Under wood machine although it is run by electricity. A new plan for admission to the freshmen class has been adopted. Any pupil with an eighth grade diploma may enter this class without an ax amination providing: (1) That his total of credits are 675. (2) That he has not fallen below 75 in the examin ation grade in either Arithmetic, Gram mar, or Spelling; and below 70 in the examination in any other subject. (3) That any pupil failing to meet these requirements, must be admitted on an examination in Arithmetic, Grammar UNITED STATES IS GERMANY'S FRIEND SAYS PRESIDENT Wilson Replies to Ambassador Von Bernstorff. Washington, April 21.—The United States has replied to a recent memor andum in which Court von Bernstorff, German ambassador, declared that "if the American people desire to observe true neutrality, they will find some means to stop the exclusive import tation of arms to one side or at least to use this export trade as a means to uphold the legitimate trade with Germany, and especially the trade in foodstuffs. Penned by President The American note, signed by Bryan and drafted at the state department, was finally penned by President Wil son himself. After pointing out that the language used by von Bernstorff "is susceptible of being construed as impuning the good faith of the United States in the performance of its duties as a neutral," the note takes it for granted that no such implication was intended, and suggests that evidently the Germany ambassador "is laboring under certain false impressions." United States Stands Firm. It is then declared that while the relations of the United States with any one of the belligerents "cannot wisely be made government," such cor respondence between the United States and the allies has been published and shows "the steadfast refusal of this government to acknowledge the right of any belligerent to alter the accepted rules of war at sea insofar as they affect the rights and interests of the neutrals."

The class in domestic science took up the subject on gelatin and as a re sult they succeeded in making delic ious delicacies. The girls of this de partment were very much pleased by a request, from Mrs. W. E. Martin, to make the cakes for the W. C. T. U meeting, which was held at her home Wednesday.

A. the question of exportation of arms is restricted, namely: That to place any embargo on arms during the pre vailing war "would be a direct viola tion of the neutrality of the United States." The note refers to the spirit of friendship which the United States desires always to manifest toward Germany and its people and concludes with the declaration that the neutral ity of the United States " is founded upon a firm basis of conscience and good will." M. E. BLOOMFIELD CIRCUIT Mr. and Mrs. Frank Coryell pre sented the circuit parsonage with 20 fine trees last week.

Are you willing to help your school win? The Ladies Aid will meet at the parsonage next Wednesday. The phone at the parsonage will soon be connected with the east and west line. The ladies who papered the par^ sonage did some mighty fine work. The Boy Scouts are planning on an other trip about the 8th of May. We will make an inspection trip to White Point which is full of interesting things. The Wold Ladies Aid are going to repeat the "Old Maids' Convention." Watch for the place and date. REV. ÉÊÂRL J.

That there was a keen interest in this, the initial meeting in launching the campaign of Mr. De Priest, was evidenced on every hand, from the moment the speaking began up until 12 o'clock midnight, when the crowd seemed as dense as earlier in the even ing.—Broad Ax. Things to Worry About. There are 6,000 miles of telephone wire in Chile. Our Daily Special. Charity often ends at home. Luke MoLuks Says: Some men seem to imagine that you can't be religious unless you maintain a perpetual grouch and that a smile is a deadly sin. Just the same, I'll bet that the men angels will be allowed to grin in heaven and that the women angels will be permitted to giggle. One grand thing about our system of government is that when you are dis satisfied with your lot you can always join a political party that promises to take the money away from some other man and hand it to you. Before he gets her he imagines that he is leading the bride to the altar. But later on the poor boob discovers that she was pushing him along. When they are first married they name their home the Dovecote, or the Nest, or the Bower. But after they have settled down to their regular three battles every day they feel more like calling the place the Arena. There are all sorts of people in the world, including the man who has time to sit down and worry because the buffalo is being exterminated. It is easy to be popular. Always find out what brand of advice a man wants before you give him any. A girl isn't always suffering from a broken heart when she has that kind of an expression on her face. Mayjbe it is her corns. And when Lovey begins to come home from work at night and asks Honey if supper is ready before he thinks of kissing her the honeymoon begins to pack up its traps and get ready to vacate. If he grabs her by the wing when Cher get to a street crossing and care fully escorts her to the other side the betting is 2 to 1 that they are not mar ried. What has become of the old fashion ed man who referred to a negro as a Senegambian? Money does make a difference. If a girl is poor and red beaded and cross eyed she is red headed and cross eyed. But if her father has a million and she is red headed and cross eyed she is a Titian beauty. After a man has been married long enough he can get mad at the weather and go home and take his grouch out on his wife. When a man has three umbrellas and it is raining when he leaves the office the umbrellas are all at home. And if it is raining when he leaves the house the umbrellas are all at the office. It takes some men all day to put off things to do tomorrow. If things keep on going the way they are it won't be long until women will regard clothing as a necessary evlL The rest of the women may be as aid as they look, but a chorus girl Is always older. Rome men give you the impression that they are merely hanging around because a funeral would coot more than they are worth. a STOCKGROWERS RE-ELECT 1914 OFFICERS AND ADOPT A NUMBER OF RESOLUTIONS Miles City, April 22.—The Montana Stockgrowers association closed its session with the election of the offi cers of last year, R. P. Heren, Miles City, President; Wallis Huidekoper, Wallis, first vice-president; Randolph Deibel, Miles City, second; D. W. Ray mond, secretary-treasurer. Resolutions were adopted tendering the thanks of the association to the Montana railroads for their readjust ment of west bound rates on livestock reaffirming the position previously taken by the association of favoring federal classification of public lands and for the 640 acre homestead law, tendering thanks to the members of congress for getting through a $125, 000 appropriation for destruction of predatory animals; for uniform bount ies in the northwest states to avoid fraud; against a herd law; and thank ing the state livestock sanitary board for their vigorous and successful deal ing with the foot and mouth conta gion. Secretary of State Alderson was the first speaker. He believed that with the low buying power of the world the stockmen were better off with less livestock. Congressman Tom Stout, who is a member of the congressional committee on public lands, said that after the agricultural lands of the west are all taken up, there may be. he thinks, a leasing law adopted on graz ing lands, but not before. The agri cultural lands in the public domain still equal four states the size Mon tana. A. E. DeRicales of Denver, said the packing industry of the country is practically in control of four men, who are now going into the business of loaning money on cattle and have about $100,000,000 out at the present time. This he decried as a species of monopoly similar to that of the rail roads owning other interests. Repre sentative Hugh Wells spoke on the recently enacted livestock laws of the state. On motion of Judge Loud the associ tion was opened to honorary member ship. Governor Stewart was the first to be thus honored and after that ad journment was taken sine die.
