SENATOR MYERS IS IN FAVOR OF MODERATION Washington, Nov. 1.—Senator Myers is an advocate of moderate increases in the army and navy, but unless he is convinced of the necessity of vast expenditures he will vote for only modest appropriations for military and navy purposes when the next congress Did You Ever Buy Men's Sox in tan, black and colors for ............................ 5c or Men's Woolen Sox for 15c or Babies' Fleeced Under- dj ftdfc wear for ................................

Libby & Farwell have moved their threshing outfit across the river to Bluff Creek, where they are now work ing. Carl Schlicht, Oscar Hagan and Al. Moody attended Widmyer's auction sale last Thursday, going in Mr. Moody's car. He cried the sale. The dance at Joe Berry's last night was well attended and was a grand success in every way. Martin Fields freighted in a big load of grain Tuesday for Carl Egness. Al. Moody and Geo. Boyle expect to leave Saturday for SL Paul to appear as witnesses in a forgery case, which decides this widely agitated qeustion. The Montana senator wants more in formation. Among other things he wants to know where the money is coming from if the nation launches on an ambitious military and naval pro gram. "I cannot give any specific opinions on the increases that ought to be made in the army and navy," said the sena tor, "because I desire more informa tion, but I am inclined to think that the United States ought to spend a little more than it has been spending for these purposes. I am in favor of military training in schools and col leges and the establishment of instruc tion camps such as the one that was conducted at Plattsburg, N. Y., during the past summer. Before I vote for large appropriations for national de fense, I want to know where the mon ey is coming from. If congress should decide to raise it by a tax on war mun itions, or by increasing the income tax, I would favor such methods, but I am opposed to placing increased tariff taxes on the necessities of life." Senator Myers expects the next con gress to run all through next summer and to transact a great amount of im portant business. He believes that the administration coal and land leasing bill and the Ferris water power bill, reported by the senate committee on public lands, of which he is chairman, at the last session, will both be enact ed into law. He also is of the opinion that a ship purchase bill similar to the one defeated in the last congress by the filibuster of senate republicans will be passed in the next session. "As for myself," continued the sen ator, " I shall continue to press my pure fabrics bill with the hope of pass ing it. I have assurances which lead me to feel encouraged as to the pros pect of its success. I shall also do all I can toward opening the Crow reserv ation, although the attitude of the In dian office will make this a difficult task," grew out of the purchase of some cat tle two years ago by Mr. Moody from a St. Paul man who went wrong. Theodore Johnson hauled in his first load of grain on Tuesday. He still has 5,000 more bushels of wheat to bring in. Al. Wyse and father hauled in their first load of grain on Tuesday. They threshed 25,000 bushels this season for neighbors. Ole Minde made his first trip to town this season with grain on Tues day. He threshed a total of over one thousand bushels. While building a chimney in his house last Wednesday, Emil Jacobsen left a lighted lantern in the cupalo while he went to dinner. The lantern exploded and the side of the house had to be broken in to extinguish t he flames. There will be several hun dred dollars damage to repair. Hill Brothers have already lost ten head of cattle with blackleg; Davis & Yeske have lost three or four and Ole Bryan and Ole Lahrwald have lost one apiece from the same cause. As the vaccine costs but 15c for each animal vaccinated, every farmer should pro tect himself by that means. County Commissioner Andrew Lar son and Mr. King, both of Glendive, autoed out in this part of the country last Sunday and took a spin over Lar son's boulevard No. 2, one of the finest automobile roads in eastern Montana. A prominent resident and bachelor farmer of this section went to sleep last Sunday evening while driving his team and the horses ran away. They ran into Vernie Jones' wagon and scared his horses so they beat it down the road and ran into Henry Christian son's wagon. The damage will amount to fully $100 in all. Moral: Stay awake, no matter how hard it may be. Mrs. Brindle and sister, Miss Lena Dolsessor attended church in Glendive on Sunday. "THE HONYACKER'' DEATH OF FELIX R. McNALLY Felix R.

CRACKERBOX FARMERS REPORT SPLENDID YIELDS Albert Windell, whose farm is Vr cated in the Crackerbox country, was in town Monday after a 42-day thresh ing trip, during which time he put 55,000 bushels of grain through the separator. The best wheat he thresh ed was a 48-acre field belonging to A. E. Aiken of this city which yielded 1370 bushels or 28% bushels to the acre. He also threshed the wheat from Fred Hohensee's 46 acres which yield ed 1205 bushels, or 26% bushels to the ly before noon. For the past three or four weeks Mr. McNally has been staying at the Alex. A. McDonald ranch on Hell creek, doing odd jobs around the place for his board. Early this morning he drank some naphtha (wood alcohol) which was kept in the house for the purpose of generating a gasoline lamp. Mr. McDonald observ ed that something was wrong with the man and immediately brought him into Jordan for medical assistance, reach ing the village between 8 and 9 o'clock. Nothing could be done to save his life and he gradually grew worse until death relieved his sufferings. The deceased has been employed as a sheepherder for the various outfits during the time he made his home in this vicinity. He was about 50 years of age and unmarried, his birthplace being Waterbury, Conn. He came west about 30 years ago and enlisted in the regular army at one of the gov ernment forts. He came to Montana about 20 years ago and before coming to Jordan worked at various places in the state. He is survived by two mar ried sisters at Waterbury, Conn. Felix R. McNally was one of the most capable shepherds in this part of the country and his services were always in demand among the sheep men. He was kind-hearted and gen erous to a fault and was always ready and willing to assist anybody to the best of his ability, either an acquaint ance or a stranger, and had a great many friends who will regret to learn of his death. The remains were taken in charge by Undertaker Fitzgerald and his sis ters will be notified before arrange ments for the funeral are made.—Jor dan Gazette.

Glasgow, Oct. 29.—Harlie Martin of the firm of Martin & Bros., well known sheepmen of northern Dawson and southern Valley counties, was shot, possibly fatally, about 1 o'clock this morning by Jack Norville, a stock man whose range is contiguous to that of the Martin Bros, in the Big Dry country, 60 ^niles south of this city. Word of the encounter was brought to Lismas on the Missouri river south of Glasgow by courier and S. H. Miley, mail carrier between Glasgow and Lis mas, proceeded toward the scene of the shooting with his automobile. He brought the wounded man to this city. Dr. Smith found that Martin had re ceived one serious gunshot wound in the arm and another in the leg and was suffering from loss of blood. The surgeon feared possibly it might be found necessary to amputate Martin's arm to save his life. Norville is supposed to have sur rendered to the peace officers of Daw son county. The affray developed when Norville is said to have sent for Martin to come and take his stock off Martin's range. Martin is reported to have armed himself before starting.
