Large posters in two colors are now being printed and will be posted all over this part of the country by the end of next week. Other Committees Report. Reports of other sub-committees were read and approved and the people can be assured of one of the biggest celebrations of its kind ever pulled off in this part of the state. "Sell your hammer and get a horn," and start right in now to boost for the Big Independence Day Celebration which will be held in Glendive on Mon day, July 6 th, and don't stop until your breath gives out JAMES BRUBAKER OFFERS UP PRAYER We are not quite certain that such a reverent thing as Prayer is in its proper place in a news item; nor do we wish to infer or influence our rend ers to believe that supplications of this nature are something unusual for James Brubaker to indulge in, but the truth of the matter is that the popular Crystal Spring Water man breathed, and had occasion to breathe, a prayer of thankfulness last Friday at 5 o'clock when a bolt of lightening passed directly in front of his ma chine on the river bridge, without scorching a hair of his head. It happened that Jim was doing a Christian act in driving to keep the tarpaulin cover on the wheat wagon of a farmer who was trying to get across the bridge before the rain struck him. Just as he had finished putting the cover back on the wagon for the sec ond time, the bolt of sky-generated juice passed in back of him and direct ly in front of his car, which together with the car of another storm-caught autoist, was held up by the wheat wagon. Strange as it may seem, none of the men on the bridge at the time wore touched, although it put all the elec trical apparatus on both cars perman ently out of business, both Jimmy and his companion being compelled to push their machines across the bridge to shelter. Instead of cursing at this, he breathed the prayer above referred to. PRETTY HELENA GIRL WON BEAUTY CONTEST The prize, a free trip io the two California expositions ofTifed by Die Helena Independent to the most beaut iful girl in Montana, was won by Mias Marguerite Koch of the Capitol Cftÿ, according to the Independent of S*U day morning. Mies Tzwnn Elynore Guy of Glendfve ran fourth In the race, receiving 12, 400 votes, fully ten thousand of which were accorded her from points out side of (Hendive. If the time had not been so short her ednUNWin such cities as Missoda, Sheridan and others, would have piled up fully forty thousand more, but erfcn this number would not. have availed with the tr*»ende«a Ma# *htih the girl from Helena naturally received from her own town folk*. of to at by GLENOIVE SWIMMING POOL SITE ASSURED BY N. P. RAILROAD Superintendent T. H. Lantry of the Northern Pacific Railway company, together with the President of the Glendive Swimming Club, made an in spection, Tuesday morning, of the railroad right-of-way between Clough street and the river bank, for the purpose of selecting a site for the new pool which it is proposed to build next month for the use of all thte people. The concrete pool will probably be erected almost directly opposite the new electric plant of the Glendive Heat, Light and Power Company on Clough street near Valentine, the rail road agreeing to lease all the land up to the river bank between Valentinfe and Bell streets for that purpose. City Engineer F. H. Handforth has consented to draw up the plans and specifications for the new pool, a copy of which when finished will be turned over to N. P. Agent W. J. Buchner, who will send it, together with the recommendations of the local railroad officials to General Agent J. E. Spur ling of Billings and Mr. Cooper of St. Paul for their approval and final acceptance. Mr. Buchner stated yesterday morn ing that there would be no question but that the railroad would grant the promoters of the idea at least a ten year lease on the land, at a nominal yearly rental of one dollar in order to legalize the document. In event the pool is finished early in July, the city will no doubt put in a neat park approach to the pool from the end of the bridge at Bell and Clough street, which can be planted to grass and trees and filled with paths and benches and used during the hot summer evenings by people who do not care to walk across the bridge to the river park for their out ings. A plan to finance the proposition is now being devised by a local banker and if enough money can be raised by popular subscription, the swimming pool will soon become a permanent feature of the civic life of our city. RAILROAD CLUB INCREASES MEMBERSHIP The Brotherhood of All Railway Employes, the new social organiza tion which L. E. Bair started here in February, held a very well attended meeting last Thursday evening in Krug Hall. Fifty members were present and as sited in the work of initiating the seven new members whose applications had been favorably acted upon by the membership committee. The next meeting, which will be purely a sciai affair in the nature of 'Smoker," will be held In the same hall on next Thursday evening, May 27, and all members are urged to be on hand. FOUR GENERATIONS AT SOCIAL GATHERING Four generations were represented at a birthday party held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Becker last Saturday evening, in honor of Mr. August Thielmann and his son, Mr Becker, whose natal anniversaries fell on Saturday and Sunday respect ively. The four generations were fully rep resented by Mr. and Mrs. Thieimann; their daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. R. Becker; and the Beckers' daughter, Mrs. Claude Parker and her husband; and finally, but by no means the least of the family, little James PUrfcer, the infant son of the latter couple. Little Jimmy had the distinct honor of presenting his grand-father and his great-grandfather with birthday pres ents, after which he went peacefully to sleep and remained in that condition the rest of the evening. Cards were played, and an excellent luncheon, such a one as Mrs. Becker alone can prepare, was served, after which the guests left for home at mid night. Mis# BAM. Gates will leave to-day to spend tbs neoct month or six weeks with relatives and friends in Minne sota. c The pr o ofre a ding of the transcribed Prairie Coufity record» starts to-day at the court house, six girls having been put to work on the job by County Clerk Wyman.

P. Hospital, for the com ing tournament which will be arrang ed between the teams from Beach, Wi baux, Sidney and Glendive to take place on the day of the coming clebra tion, Monday, July 5th. The Club's last regular practice shoot was held on Sunday at 1 P. M., at which a number of the boys showed great improvement in their work over that shown at Sidney. Field Captain C. L. Proctor was in Wibaux Tuesday arranging for the coming tournament, and announces the prizes as donated on Monday night by the Entertainment Committee of the Chamber of Commerce as follows: First, $20; second, $15; third, $10; and Fourth, $5. The July 5th shooting tournament between these rival clubs is expected to result in an exceptionally large number of gun enthusiasts attending the Glendive celebration, men who otherwise could not be expected to make the trip.

The yards can accommodate 1000 head of horses without crowding and that number has already been actually booked. The water supply is now be ing looked after and will be in shape to take care of the large number of animals by the end of this week. All the feed that will'be required for so large a number of horses has already been purchased and is being put into its place at the yards. Dr. Swarthout reports a number of inquiries being received daily from horse buyers all over the west and he looks forward to a number of them being on hand for the sale which takes place on Monday, Tuesday and Wed nesday, May 31, and June 1st and 2nd He stated that the new company and its many friends were doing every thing possible to make this first sale a big success, in which event the yards will take its place as a permanent and most important part of the city's com mercial life. BUTLER-KUYACK Cupid has been more than usually active so far this spring, many prom inent Glendive people already falling for the bewitching little fellow, and many others to follow shortly, the names of whom will be published in the order of their appearance on the stage of matrimonial life. This time the victims of Cupid's darts were William Joseph Butler of this city and Miss Helen Kuyack of Win ona, Minn., both being of the same age, 22 years. They were united in the bonds of Holy Matrimony at SL Juliana's Cath olic Church by tha Rev. Fr. E. Curran Monday morning at 7:30 o'clock, the groom's brother, Bert, acting as his best man, and his sister, Miss Tessle Butler standing for the bride. After a tasty wedding breakfast served at the home of the groom's parent's Mr. and Mrs. John Butler, the couple was kidn a pp ed by a party of their young friends and carried off by force in Dick Statham's automobile up and down the main street, to the tune of a string of jingling cowbells. so, their plans for the future not be* ing yet definitely decided upon. The young people expect to make their borne In this city for a mouth or New Plumbing Board Appointed by Council Bob Lowery Allowed to Build Re taining Wall Multiple Strainer for City Water Ordered Fire Department to Get Phone in of 9 9 3 The second regular meeting of the month of the City Council was held Monday evening, all members being present except Alderman Einar Riv enes, who is still confined to the Glen dive General Hospital as the result of a recent operation. Those present were, Mayor A. A. Baker, Aldermen Larson, Kean and Lowe, City Clerk August J. Colin, City Engineer F. H. Handforth, and Police Chief Kinney. Railroad Matters Handled. Two communications from Supt. T. H. Lantry of the Northern Pacific Railroad were read,one requesting that the city take care of the expense of the sbway lighting, which was ordered done; and the other relating to the seepage in the subway, which matter was discussed and will be taken care of by the City Engineer. Plumbing Board Appointed. The council re-appointed W. D. Gochenour as plumbing inspector and appointed City Engineer Handforth, Dr. B. Consler and H. M. Hanly, as a plumbers' examining board in accord ance with the city ordinance and the 1913 state law on the subject. R. L. Lowery was granted permis sion to erect a retaining wall along side his residence property on upper Meade Avenue, to the south of the big coulee, the work to be done under the supervision of the Street Commission er. Orders Placed For Screens. Frank L. Colvin of Spokane, a repre sentative of the Burrowes Rustless Screen Company of Portland, Maine was present, and presented plans and specifications for screens for a num ber of windows for the occupied rooms as well as for all the outside doors in the new city hall, and his bid of GLENDIVE HAS CHANCE TO GET A CREAMERY Carl Liljegreen, connected with the Miles City Creamery, and formerly manager of the local creamery across the river, was in the city on Tuesday visiting old friends. Mr. Liljegreen stated, in response to a question propounded by the Mon itor man, that he would consider any reasonable proposition made to him by local people, looking to the establish ment in Glendive of a modern cream ery and cold storage plant. It is conceded that such an estab lishment would be one of the best things for the city that could possibly be devised; in fact, almost on a par with the solution to the water question. First of all it would have a strong tendency to develop and encourage the dairy business, the enterprise that has made several small communities in North Dakota enormously wealthy. Secondly, it would help to put Glen dive on the commercial map of Mon tana in a way that no other industry of a practical nature could possibly hope to do. It occurred to us that it would be the height of wisdom for those who control the destinies of the Glendive Chamber öf Commerce to get into com munication with Mr. Liljegreen, with the object in view of securing such a valuable asset to the city as a modern creamery certainly would be. Creameries, and other general pros perity breeding industries have, in many other cities all over the country, been Induced to locate for the donation of a plot of ground for the erection of the plant, the donations being made in almost every case of organizations similar in purpose to that of the local chamber. It is sincerely to be hoped thât in addition to sending money to Medora, North Dakota, for a bridge and to Butte for an advertisement in Campbell's Scientific Farmer, the Chamber will find both the inclination and the where withal to induce such an enterprise modern creamery to locate per manently in our midst the A. T. of D. as $88.50 was accepted. Delivery of the screens will be made by July 1st. Water Strainer To Be Installed. The City Engineer was instructed to order a multiple strainer to be con nected to the city water intake. The device will have the effect of keeping all foreign matter, other that the riv er's natural high water mud, out of the city mains, and will preclude the possibility of clogged hydrants by foreign matter as now occasionally happens. Phone For Fire Department. At the request of Fire Chief Frank O'Malley, the council decided to or der the installation of a telephone in the fire department headquarters in the city hall. This was devised by Mr. O'Malley as a means of preventing a misunderstanding regarding fire calls, such as happened recently when the apparatus went to T. F. Hagan's resi dence while the fire was burning in Mr. Heckman's kitchen. Others Matters Disposed Of. The matter of the proper street and sidewalk grades in new Improvement District No. 16 was brought up and the City Engineer instructed to establish the grades. The Water and Sewers Committee of the council, were asked to invsti gate a matter in regard to the water supply at the N. P. Hospital. This committee will also Investi gate and endeavor to devise a means to do away with the damage to the river rip-rap work whenever the city flushes out its settling tanks at the pumping station. Other matters of minor importance were discussed but no other official action taken. The next meeting of the council will be held on Monday, June 7. FORMER MONITOR TYPO BUYS ARNEGARD CALL Mrs. Lee Jenkins of Arnegard, N.

She is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Henderson of this city, her broth er being Robt. Henderson of Lowe Brothers store. All her Dawson Conty friends will be glad to learn that she is now a reglar full-fledged newspaper woman, and the Monitor joins with them in wishing the new editor (pardon us, but they don't use the feminine in speaking of a newspaper woman) all the success possible in her new field of endeavor.
