Acting on the invitation, the local body has arranged to take the trip by train Monday morning, leaving Glen dive at 6:45 a. m., and returning on train No. 2 at 11 o'clock, providing permission is received in time from the St. Paul office of the road for the stopping of the fast east-bound train, which permission no doubt will be gianted. If the excursion is carried out as planned, the visitors will be able to spend three hours in the gas belt and be back in the city an hour before lunch time. It is understood that a flow of up wards of a million cubic feet of gas daily can be depended upon from one well already drilled, and that other shafts can be sunk as the demand for gas for local consumption increases. The exact plans of the company for the future are not known, and it is not expected that the pipes to the city will be laid this winter. CEORGIA CYCLONE AT TRACTS LARGE AUDIENCE A large audience of men and women -mostly women —greeted Mrs. Mary Harris Armor, the noted prohibition lecturer, better known perhaps as the Georgia Cyclone," at the Arcade Op era house Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, on her first public appear ance in this city. Mrs. Armor, who is known from coag t to coast as a speaker of force and eloquence, handed "King Alcohol" an assortment of short jabs and up pe-rcuts that held her audience spell bound tor two hours and resulted in a diower of donations for the cause in all amounts from the stately fifty dollar contribution of a wealthy local member of the W.

This un forseen cancellation is unfortunate as the coming of Dr. Lorenz and his tal ented company was being looked for ward to by Orpheum patrons with a great deal of pleasure. This will not interfere, however with the regular program of the Cozy Playhouse in any way. Saturday, mat inee and night, two big vaudeville acts, Wilson & Schneider, comedy ac robats, the Floyd Sisters, musical com strumentalists and four reels of pic tures. Sunday, matinee and night, a spec ial five-part feature, "The Little Mad amoiselle," with the popular screen star, Vivian Martin, in the stellar role. Monday, night show only, two big vaudeville acts, Casad & Casad, mus ical comedians of the highest class; Marie Laurent, billed as "The Girl with the Golden Voice;" and five reels of pictures, including a special Key stone comedy, "Fatty's and Mable's Simple Life," a scream from start to finish with fun furnished by Fatty Ar buckle and Mable Normand. Next Tuesday, matinee and night, one of the most powerful photo-play dramas ever shown in Glendive, the great V. L. S. E. feature, "The Man Who Couldn't Beat God," with the popular screen idol, Maurnce Costello, in the leading role. Mr. Gostello says this is the greatest play he has ever appeared in. He describes it as fol lows: "Two hundred feet beneath the East river and a caisson breaks. There is a call for volunteers to rescue those crushed in the tunnel. Martin Hench ford, murderer and fugitive from jus tice, answers the call. He performs a wonderful feat; saves his companions from death, and—but you'll appreciate it more when you seen the picture. It is a story bubling with love, intrigue and mystery—a story of politics and a conscience that would be avenged." HEAD BADLY CRUSHED BETWEEN HEAVY WAGONS Having his head badly crushed be tween two big grain wagons héavily loaded with wheat was the experience of John Bonner, formerly of Moh mouth, 111., but for the past several months employed as a farm hand by Leo Magna of Clear Creek. That he was not killed outright is considered almost a miracle. The accident occurred Monday morning on the Glendive road when Mr. Bonner was attempting to couple two wheat wagons to the tractor which was hauling the grain to town. The engine, it is understood, had pull ed one of the wagons down the hill and was returning for the other loads when in some inexplicable manner Mr. Bonner's head was caught be tween the under-gearing of the wag ons. Dr. Donohue was immediately sent for and he left at 10:30 o'clock in the car belonging to Mr. Glasspoole, from whom Mr. Magna is renting his place. The injured man was immediately brought to the Glendive General hos pital where everything possible was done to relieve his sufferings. At first little hope was held out for his recovery but at the present writing he is said by the hospital authorities to be practically out of danger unless some unforseen complications set in. He has been entirely conscious since reaching the hospital. His mother in Monmouth, 111., was immediately wired for but has not yet arrived, although she is expected in tonight on No. 3. it a is our ing will will ing to HELLMAN John Heilman, aged 73 years, one of the oldest members on the North ern Pacific Railroad pension roll, died last Friday at the N. P. Hospital in this city after an illness due to a com plication of diseases caused by old age. He leaves six children, four girls and 2 boys, all of whom are marriod but one. He has been employed hr the railroad for a number of years as was of in dies he ally by the a ence as a a carpenter at which trade he was said to have had but :ew equals. The funeral, which was in charge of Lowe Bros., was held from the Luth eran church Sunday afternoon, inter ment being made in the city cemetery TIS TO WEEP SAYS LINDNER OF WIBAUX In a front page article which re minds us of Marc Antony in Julius Caesar when he said, "if you have tears prepare to shed them now," or as quoted in Ovid, "interdum lacry mae pondéra vocis habent," Editor Ray Lindner in last week's Wibaux Pioneer sings a most doleful dirge in requiem over the body of old Dawson county, which he pictures as being in the last throes of an ignominious death struggle-or that is about what we gather from the article, reading be tween the lines, and confessing to an absolute inability to grasp the full deep and almost completely hidden meaning of the printed words. However and notwithstanding, the article was pathetic and we were touched—a feat most difficult of ac complish ment, especially by a worthy and esteemed contemporaneous editor. As to the literary worth of the dia tribe there can be no question. As a literary gem we shall always treasure it and nourish and preserve it in our mental storehouse as a fitting compan ion piece to the following immortal poem: "A tramp upon a box car sat; His feet they reached the ground." —Longfellow The article quotes a paragraph from a recent issue of the Monitor in which oûr friend—and we use that word ad visedly—Attorney Stephen J. Leahy, is given credit for a few kind words commendatory of the new county of Wibaux and its agricultural possibili ties. We were "crooly" misjudged as to our intentions, so much so that we are constrained to close with the lachry maic words of the famious Hebriac pote: "Ish ga bibble." ST. MATTHEW'S EPISGOPAL The services next Sunday will be: Sunday school at 10 a. m.; Morning prayer and sermon at 11 a. m. Even ing prayer at 4 p. m. All are cordially invited. The services prescribed by the Epis copal church for Thanksgiving day will be held at 10 o'clock. This hour will make it possible for those wish ing to attend the union service later to attend both. WOMAN'S CLUB MEETS AT NEW CITY HALL Guests' day at the Woman's club was one of the most enjoyable events of the season. The meeting was held in the council room at the city hall on Tuesday afternoon and about 125 la dies were present. In the absence of he president, the vice-president, Mrs. Farnum, presided. Mrs. Allen presented an exception ally well written paper, "A Club Wo man's Vision." Music was rendered by the club quartette. The club had the pleasure and honor of having as a guest, Mrs. Mary Harris Armor who gave a short talk. Then followed a lecture and demonstration by Miss Harmon, instructor in domestic sci ence at the High, school. Miss Har as his ing bit all to YOUNG MEN Do you know that you can get a nice, quiet, comfort able room, with bath and all other hotel accommoda tions at a nominal monthly rental at the Hotel Iordan Inquire at the Desk of or in in mon demonstrated with the skill and ease of a practical as well as scientific cook. Delightful refreshments were pre pared and served by the advanced class in domestic science of the high school. These attractive girls did their part well and are sure to become efficient houskeepers with such splen did training. Glendive, as well as the Dawson County High school, is to be congratulated on having such a class and such a teacher.—Contributed. COUNTY CLERK TO APPOINT REGISTRATION AGENTS Carrying out the provisions of the new statute contained in the Session Laws of 1915 regarding elections and registration of voters, County Clerk and Recorder R. L. Wyman is at pres ent preparing a list of prospective deputy registration agents which he has authority to appoint on or before January first, next. The prospective appointees—89 in number—will be mostly postmasters, or shoudl we say postmistresses, as nearly all of them are of the feminine sex. The law provides that the Coun ty Clerk appoint one responsible par ty in each precinct in the county up to within 10 miles of the county seat to register voters, for which service they are to receive from the county a fee of 25 cents for each name so added to the list. All the precincts in the coun ty, therefore, wilth the exception of precincts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 12, will have a regularly appointed registra tion agent, whose duty it will be to swear in all prospective voters whose names do not already appear on the county registration books. This is acknowledged to be the best system of registration so far devised for it is almost a dead certainty that the agents' interest in the two bits per name will be more appealing than any consideration of party or politics MAN WITH FRACTURED SKULL CURED AT HOSPITAL Pat McGuiness, a homesteader a few miles outside of Glendive, was brought into the city last week and taken to the Glendive General hos pital for treatment Investigation disclosed the fact that the man's skull was fractured, the ac cident being caused by a fall from a loaded wheat wagon. He was dis charged from the institution Tuesday as cured and left the following day for his homestead. In speaking to a friend at the hos pital of the remarkable nature of his recovery, young McGuiness stated that it must have been due to his be ing a Scotchman, for he said: "a canny Scotchman, ye know, is a gude bit hard to kill."

YOUNG SIEFF ARRESTED CHARGED WITH ARSON Charged with arson, the specific complaint being the malicious destruc tion of property, Louis Sieff of the Mis souri river country, was brought into town by a deputy last Saturday and arraigned before Justice of the Peace Elmer Martineson. He was placed un der $1500 bonds which being unable to furnish resulted in his being placed in the county jail for a preliminary hearing on Saturday. The complaint was made at the in stance of H. S. Cutting, the well known sheepman, who charged the accused man with having set fire to a number of straw stacks on his prop erty with malicious intent. THRICE-AWEEK EDITION OF THE NEW YORK WORLD Practically a Daily at the Price of a Weekly—no other Paper Gives so Much at auch a Low Price There has never been a time when a newspaper was more needed in the household. The great war in Europe has now entered its second year, with no promise of an end for a long time. These are world-shaking events, in which the United States, willing or un willing, has been compelled to take a part. No intelligent person can ignore such issues. The presidential contest also will soon be at hand. Already candidates us the als and to a i lutionary relic, was escorted from the Panama-Pacific exposition yesterday by a guard of honor for its return to Independence hall at Philadelphia, after a four months' stay at the expo sition. Militia Opposes Army Increase. San Francisco, Nov. 12.—Refusal to indorse President Wilson's proposal for a continental army of 400,000 men marked the closing session yesterday of the seventeenth annual convention of the National Guard association of the United States. Democracy Makes Gains. Washington, Nov. 1,3.—A statement issued from the headquarters of the democratic national committee, com menting on the results of the recent elections, said: "The results show that while the Republicans and Bull Moose have gotten together in some states, the Democracy has made large gains from the Progressive ranks." for the nomination are in the field and the campaign, owing to the extraor dinary character of the times, will be of supreme interest. No other news paper will inform you with the prompt ness and cheapness of the Thrice-a Week edition of the New York World. The Thrice-aWeek World's regular subscription price is only $1.00 per year and this pays for 156 papers. We offer this unequalled newspaper and the Yellowstone Monitor together for one year for $2.00. The regular sub scription price of the two papers is $3.00. THE EDITOR SOLILOQUIZES When a dearly loved subscriber writes to us in irate vein: "Stop the paper. Never send it to me again." We just puff our sweet old corn-cob, and we stroke the office cat; editors "don't have no feelings"—never mind —we're used to that. When a typographical error some times creeps in by mistake, and our friends rush up and tell us what a first rate ass we'd make, we'd just overlook their errors, never giving tit for tat; editors are pachydermie, and Oh well, we're used to that. When our advertisers cancel, telling us the sheet's no good; when subscrib ers choose to pay us in tomatoes or cord wood, well, we simply grin and bear it, though it leaves us rather flat; editors can exist somehow—somehow we get used to that. When your daughter's graduation or her wedding day comes round, you ex pect the kind of write-ups that in ad jectives abound, do you ever stop to thank us, though 'tis done with great 'eclat'; that's what editors are here for, and—Oh, well! We're used to that. —Exchange. THE TRADE-MARK OF MODERN WAR Permit me to make myself known. I am a soldier's uniform. I have the power to transform a man from a man into a slave. 1 am the symbol of lust, the badge of bondage, the boon companion of bayonet and torch, and the trade-mark of war. Without me murder would be mur der; butchery, butchery; and diplo macy a dead letter. With me individu als perish, personality is a mockery and cruelty a synonym of justice. Women follow me in crowds. I fas cinate them. They smile at me, blind to the knowledge that through me are their sorrows multiplied a thousand fold .—Exchange.
