As it is the local practttionear is confined to his hospital with several ribs loosened from the breast bone; nursing many minor bruises and suff ering considerably from shock. Bridge Washed Away. The accident was caused by the doctor looking at the efforts of the men in trying to get Mr. Pope's Over land car across the badly swollen Dry (reek, about 8:30 o'clock Monday night, shortly following the heavy downpour of rain, instead of paying attention to his road. He failed to see that the little red bridge across the creek had been washed away and before he could stop his Buiek, the car had plunged elks lodge in glendive NOW FULLY ASSURED According to a telegram received by H. T. Allen of this city last Fri day morning from District Deputy J. M. Rhoades of Bozeman, the city of Glendive has been granted a special dispensation by the Grand Exalted Ruler who holds forth in San Fran cisco, the withdrawals of the local member evidently having had the de sired effect. It will be remembered that the efforts of the local Elks, who were trying to get a lodge in this city, had received quite a set-hack by the re fusal of the Miles City Lodge to pass on ten of our candidates who sought to become members in the event of the the local lodg ' being instituted. This action on the part of the Miles City bunch was taken after they had given us every assurance that our efforts to secure a local lodge would not be bucked by them There is only one way in which a good Elk can look at it: they liked us so well they hated to see us leave their protecting wing. The charter is expected any day, in which event the formation of the Gate City Lodge. B. P. O. E., will go merrily on.

Had it 90 t been for the meagre protection afforded by the top of the car being in a position, the doctor would surely have been crushed to death. As it was, he would have drowned but for the assistance of the three men mentioned above, who sue ceeded in removing the heavy ma chine from the injured man's body and pulling him to safety. After the injured man was taken to the hospital, Dr. A. L. Hammerel was called and he made an examina tion and rendered medical first aid. He said that the doctor would prob ably be out in a week or two, but the machine, goodness only knows when, if ever. GLENDIVE BAND DANCE SUCCESSFUL SOCIAL AFFAIR The popular dance given last Thurs day evening at Krug Hall for the bene fit of the Eastern Montana Band of this city was one of the best attended and most keenly enjoyed affair of its kind held in this city since the begin ning of the new year. More than 80 couples were on the floor and tripped the light fantastic to the strains of harmony produced by the full Glendive Orchestra. The dance followed a series of band concerts given in front of the Orpheum and Isis Theatres by the full band of eighteen pieces, whose playing was enjoyed by several hundred people in spite of the cool weather and threat ening rain. The dance was a winner in every way, financially and socially, for which the band boys wishes the Mon itor to express its thanks to the peo ple for their hearty support and large attendance. It has been suggested by a number of progressive citizens that outside of getting a series of three games with Sidney during the July 5th celebration, the attraction that would bring the most people to Glendive is a Band Contest between the home aggrega tion and those from Sidney, Fallon, and other nearby places. There would have to be a substan tial prize offered, but it is thought by many that the increased attend ance would be well worth the money •pent for the prize. NEW ROAO MAP OF MONTANA ISSUED BY HIGHWAY COMMISSION The Monitor is in receipt of the Montana State Highway Commission Road Pamphlet No. 5, mailed by Sec retary George R. Metlen of the Com mission. Accompanying the pamphlet was the new May 1315 road map of the state, a copy of which should be in the poss ession of every autoist. The new map which is a perfect gem of the map manufacturers art, is strictly up to date, having been com piled from latest data and surveys furnished the Commission by the var ious counties, under the provisions of the revised codes of the state. W. F. Adams of Sidney was a vis itor in the city last Saturday. PRESENT TERM OF CITY SCHOOLS BROUGHT TO SUCCESSFUL CL08E to Records Show Increase In Attendance Aa Well As In Interest Supt. Brown A Worker. . « . . . ™ a ' f f. Upe " nt * ndent H - «• Brown, head of the G endive public schools, la a worker with modern Ideas and ideals is shown by the records of the pas erm in the public schools. The attendance was much larger than in any past year, and the inter est of the pupils in their work kept right up to high water mark to the very last day of the session which was last Friday afternoon. Special closing services were held at both the Washington and Lincoln Prof. H. R. Brown schools on that day and the children left for home with the prospects of three months vacation before them. This was the first term held in the new Washington school house on up per Meade Avenue, and to say that the pupils were much benefited in every way by the improved environ ment i 3 but putting it mildly. One of the many improvements effected by Prof. Brown has been the reduction in the number of truancy cases which this year has been almost (Continued on Page Eight) WELL KNOWN STOCKMAN PASSES TO GREAT BEYOND George Harvey of Deer Creek, one of the best known stockmen in this I part of the state died at the Grace Hospital on Monday, May 24th, on the 50th anniversary of his birth which occurred on May 24th, 1865. His death followed an operation for appendicitis performed by Dr. R. E. Hathaway at the local hospital, the previous week. He was in such bad shape on reaching the city that it was impossible to save him. Deceased leaves a widow, whom he married about a year ago, and her little son. He also leaves a brother, James Harvey, and a sister, Mrs. Siggelkow. Mr. Harvey had been in Dawson Coun ty for the past 22 years and had ac cumulated quite a fortune in the rais - 1 ing of horses, sheep and cattle. He was a well known figure not only all over the state of Montana but in the big horse and cattle buying centres of the east as well. The body was prepared for burial | at Lowe Brothers Undertaking par lors, and after the services at the Chapel, which were conducted by the Rev. W. L. Meinzer, the remains were shipped on No. 4 yesterday morning to Merrimac, Wis., for interment. The body was accompanied to its last rest ing place by Mrs. Harvey and her lit tle son, Mrs. Siggelkow and James Harvey of this city, and two sisters and a brother, Margaret, Agnes and John, all living in Wisconsin in the vicinity of Caledonia, their birthplace. It is understood that a sister of the deceased, Mrs. John Sim, died at Cal edonia, Wis., just last week. I GLENDIVE SWIMMING CLUB | TO BE INCORPORATED The articles of incorporation of the GlendIve Swimming Club, the organi zation which will finance the new pub | lic swi "ming pool on Clough Street between Valentine street and the I bridge, are now being drawn up by attorney Joseph A. Slattery, and the stock will be placed on sale as soon ,s the papers go through the office of county Clerk and Recorder R. L. Wyman and are returned approved by secretary of state, A. M. Alderson. All checks made in payment for stock will be made payable to one of the local banks, to be selected later, so that the people will know their I money is in safe hands. The complete details of organiza | tion and operation will be published in full in all the local papers as soon it along in every possible way. as City Engineer F. H. Handforth completes the plans, at which time a copy of them will be turned over to N. P. Agent W. J. Buchner for ap proval by the head office of the road in St. Paul, as well as by General Agent J. E. Spurllng of Billings. Specifications will then be published or handed to local contractors and builders for their bids on the work which will include excavation, cement work, erection of fences, bath houses and office, the plumbing and the painting. The local merchants will be asked to bid on the bathing suits and towels. It is hoped that by next week the plans and specifications will have been completed, the articles of incor poration returned from Helena, and the sale of stock well on the way by the first of June. One of the innovations suggested is the employment of a competent life guard and swimming instructor who will instruct all the youngsters of the public schools in the science of swim ming free of charge. Steam pipes and valves connected with the local power house has also been suggested and will probably be incorporated in the plans. This will permit the water to be heated up to any temperature, and will come in handy in case the pool is inclosed later for night or winter swimming If the pool is completed by July 5th, it is planned to have a high diver and fancy swimmer of national reputa tion, give exhibitions at the Célébra tion, thus adding to the many free attractions planned for that event. Everyone in the city should take a deep interest in the new pool and help Re member that Billings got its pool only after the hardest and most persistent kind of boosting. Besides boosting the proposition verbally, everyone who can afford it, should purchase as many shares of stock as possible, the money to be returned as soon as the city is in a position to take over the pool and operate it as a public or municipal bath. FARMERS REQUEST DRINKING FOUNTAIN BE PUT INTO EARLY OPERATION A number of farmers as well as drivers of city teams have been heard to inquire as to the probable cause for the water not having yet been turned on in the nice drinktag fountain for horses erected some time ago by the Woman's Club near the corner of Ken drick avenue and west Bell street. We immediately tried to get City En gineer Handforth on the phone, and after several attempts, had to give it up, the city official probably having all he could attend to on the outside look ing after the sewers after the hard rain of Monday night. Mayor Baker said that he did not know any reason why the water should not be turned on and Dr. A. J. Du Frene, deputy state veterinarian stat ed that the foot and mouth disease had nothing to do with it, so we are at a loss to ascribe a reason for the horses being deprived of their aqua pura.

In the first round, Glendive "killed" a total of 151 birds to Beach's 138; in the second round Glendive broke 142 of the clay birds to Beach's 122. The total score stood: Glendive 293, Beach 260.

GLENDIVE TIGERS DEFEAT FORSYTH The baseball game Sunday after noon on the local diamond between the fast Glendive second team known as the Glendive Tigers, and the For syth team, while not as well attend ed as such a contest should have been, was one well worth seeing, resulting as it did in a score of 12 to 6 in favor of the local boys. The Tigers showed great improve ment over last year's form, their work Sunday offering promise of much bet ter things in the near future. They are an aggregation of clean-cut young (Continued on Page 8 ) HEAVY RAINFALL VISITS GLENDIVE One of the heaviest rainfalls of the present year visited the cty and near by country Monday evening. It is estimated that more than an inch of rain fell in the shower which did not last more than one hour. At one time there was more than a foot of water on the main street and same damage was done by water get ting into cellars along that thorough fare. The wind which blew strongly from the west, drove the rain in many cases, beneath the shingles on the roofs of many homes and caused considerable damage in that respect. It continued to rain off and on, all day Tuesday, and the truck fanners, and city garden fiends, as well as the nearby farmers, are well satisfied with the resultant moisture, which is bound to insure "some" crop this summer.
