By PRITCHARD Atmospheric changes, collectively called weather, are very important to the livelihood of the human race on this world. For instance, Portugal is an agricultural and not a manufactur ing country and its prosperity depends '° a large extent on the success or fail ure of the crops. A bad or misjudged season means heavy financial losses and a shortage in crops. This is true the world over. So important a factor was the action of the elements considered by the Bra hmans that it became a special duty to study the atmosphere. Husbandry depended upon the periodical rains and forecasts of the weather were made, with a view of making adequate provision against a coming deficiency. The philosopher who erred in his pre dictions observed silence for the rest of his life, so declares W. W. Hunter. Those forecasts, like the ones in these forecasts, were founded upon close observation of past actions of the air currents. Of recent centuries, however, John Locke kept the first regular journal of the weather and published it from time to time in the "Philosophical Transactions" and in Boyle's "History of the Air." The United States government is now doing a good work with their more than two hundred recording sta tions throughout the continent keep ing an hourly record of every slight variation. Every effect has its cause, and like causes produce like effects. This is the principle of weather forecasting. November 21st to 27th. The storm recorded in last week's forecast as expected to be in the Mis sissippi valley when the week ended will be slowly moving eastward at the beginning of this week, reaching the Atlantic coast about Tuesday, the23d. However, it is probable that storm conditions will be prolonged in south ern states from this storm to the next one. Following this storm area the barometer will rise high and tempera tures fall decidedly lower in northern sections, the greatest cold of this wave occurring in the lower Missouri valley about Monday, the 22nd. About the 22nd the barometer will again be low along the western coast reaching the western Plains states about the 23rd, Mississippi valley, 24th and eastern states about Thursday, the 25th. The most notable characteristics to be found in this storm period will be the high winds, rain and snow. Generally fair weather will come out of the west about Thursday the 25th with higher barometer and much colder weather. Very cold, if not snow, will visit, many sections on Thanksgiving day in the northern and central states. Stormy weather will appear over the Rocky Mountain states about Fri day the 26th and continue until the end of the week in that section. High winds, rain and snow storms will be moving eastward to the Plains states as the week goes out. ELSON ART EXHIBIT WINS POPULAR FAVOR If the sale of admission tickets by the school children can be taken as any indication of success, the Elson Art Exhibit of pictures at the new Washington school today and tomor row can surely be said to have met with the complete approval of the people. Children will be charged 15c and adults 25c for admission, the money so raised to be spent by the school management for a complete and judic ious assortment of pictures to adorn the walls of all the rooms in the new building. At the present time the building is without pictures of any kind, it having been the opinion of those in charge to wait until a care ful selection of masterpieces could be made and funds raised for their pur chase. The Miles City school raised $158 last year which they used for the pur chase of a complete equipment of pic tures of historical, geographical and artiste interest. Other cities through out the Northwest have done like wise, the plan having the complete endorsement of educators generally. By applying to the teachers at the school, patrons will be enabled to pur chase pictures shown at the exhibit for donation to.the school, every pic ture so purchased to be supplied with a brass plate containing the donor s name, free of charge. It might be mentioned that the El son Art company put on a similar ex hibit in Glendive about five years ago for the High school and the grade schools, at which time $400 was rais ed. BOOKER T. WASHINGTON NEGRO EDUCATOR DEAD in be ful It bill or ing bill get ed. its of a for to of on Tuskegee, Ala., Nov. 14. Booker T. Washington, foremost teacher ana leader of the negro race, died ear y today at his home here, near the Tus kegee institute, of which he was found er and president. I Tom Stout's Weekly Letter Washington, Nov. 16.—The very first day of the coming session of the United States senate is likely to wit ness the opening of a fight of more than ordinary interest to the general public and of far-reaching importance in so far as the future work of that historic body is concerned. This con test for which the battle lines are al ready being formed will result from the determination of a number of the leading democratic members to have adopted a cloture rule whereby it will be possible to limit debate in the sen ate. It will not be the first time the senators, and especially those of the majority party have attempted the task of devising a plan for prevent ing a robust minority from talking bills to death in the senate and it re mains to be seen if the present at tempt will meet the same fate as the previous efforts which have always been defeated. The present -determination on the part of many influential democrats to' change the rule which permits unlim ited debate is the result of the success ful fillibuster which the republicans, aided and abetted by a few democrats, conducted against the administration bill in the last session of congress. It will be recalled that the shipping bill was simply talked to death by a relay of long-winded opposition sena tors who absolutely defeated every at tempt of the ma jority to transact that or any other business during the clos ing weeks of the short session last winter. Not only was the shipping bill oratorically done to death but much other necessary legislation in cluding two of the big appropriation bills was sidetracked and failed to get through. No one will deny the advantage in having one body of our legislative de partment in which measures of great moment can be exhaustively discuss ed. It is my judgment and also of many more experienced observers of legislative work here that the senate almost invariably improves upon the important pieces of legislation sent over to it by the house. In the house, extended discussion is, in the very nature of the case, impossible. De bate is limited, otherwise, no bill would ever get through that body with its four hundred and thirty-five mem bers. The right to offer amendments must also be curtailed which means that, in most cases, the bill as it comes from the committee is generally put through. In the senate , when the measure goes over there, every detail of the proposed legislation can be "talked out"; amendments may be freely offered and debated and the flaws which the house necessarily overlooks are eliminated. But a situation which permits a hostile minority to defeat utterly the will of the majority by the simple ex pedient of talking without end is al together vicious and despite the un willingness of the senate to disturb traditions which are hoary with age, the shipping bill fiasco was the straw which broke the camel's back and there are many of the most influential members of that body now united in a determination to alter the rules so that after a reasonable opportunity for debate, a vote can be obtained and the issue determined in an orderly manner rather than by permitting its determination to rest upon the phys ical ability of a few obstructionists to talk the more numerous opposition into abandoning the project. The senate cloture debate bill will probably be a notable one. Some of the ablest parliamentarians on that side of the capitol are making preparations for a finished fight and Montanans need not be surprised to find Senator Walsh in the thick of the fray. The junior Montana senator is now gen erally regarded as the ablest lawyer on the democratic side of the senate and, with the retirement of Senator Root of New York, is probably with out a peer among all the great legal luminaries of the entire body. Know ing something of the thoroughness truth of the business is, the shipping with which Senator Walsh prepares for a contest of that character, I will hazard the guess that the speech FOR SALE.

Phone: 215-B which he will deliver on the cloture proposition will be one of the most comprehensive, logical and illuminat ing that will be heard on the subject. There is considerable speculation in legislative circles as to the inten tions of the administration with re ference to a renewal of its efforts to have its shipping bill enacted into law. There is a tremendous demand throughout the country for some sort of legislation having for its purpose the revival of our languishing mer chant marine. At the outbreak of the Civil war, American owned ships fly ing the stars and stripes crowded all the maritime marts of the world but following that war, our merchant ma rine began to dwindle until it became a negligible factor in the world's ship ping business. The shipping bill was conceived as a first step toward the revival of an industry involving trans actions which run into hundreds of millions annually but the opposition to the bill came largely from the men and the interests who have been clam oring the loudest for action.

F. STUTZ Prop. PHONE No. 3 interests of the country want a straight out government subsidy and will be satisfied with nothing else. But the people of this country are not particularly favorable to the idea of subsidies. Comparatively few men in public life have had the temerity to advocate subsidies such as are paid by England, Germany, Japan and some of the other leading maritime nations. We are paying those other nations one hundred and fifty million dollars an nually for hauling our freight and passengers around the seven seas and it is certainly desirable if we could keep that money or a substantial part of it here at home, but the question presents a problem the practical solu tion of which offers obstacles of a most perplexing character. The ad ministration shipping bill may not possess all of the merit claimed for it by its chief sponser, Secretary Mc Adoo, but in the absence of any other plan except one involving the payment of subsidies, I see no reason why it should not be given a trial at least.
