"A Piece or a Carload" RAPIST PLEADS GUILTY NOW SAFE AT DEER LODGE Surrounded by the strictest secrecy, Paul Moody, the 26-year old self-con fessed rapist of a 13-year old girl, was brought to town Tuesday on the dink ey from Miles City, where he had been taken for safe keeping, and after pleading guilty to the charge in the district court, was sentenced by Judge C. C. Hurley to an indetermin ate sentence of from 20 to 40 years at hard labor at Deer Lodge penitentiary. So quietly was the affair handled, and so little did anyone suspect that the criminal was in the city, that Sher iff Twible, it is said, took the man openly through the streets to the de pot where train No. 3 was boarded and the couple speeded on to their destination with only the court and jail officials cognizant of the move. Thus most happily, except for the innocent little victim, ends one of the most dastardly crimes that ever blackened the court records of this county. POLICE COURT NEWS.

Under the present plan subscription by banks is purely vol untary and of the nearly 8,000 nation al and state institutions in the system not more than 2,600 so far have sub scribed. The clearing function is regarded by members of the board as one of the most important the reserve banks exercise. It was designed primarily to save millions in the cost of collect ing checks drawn by member banks on each other. In addition, it was pointed out today, with the clearing system in full operation, many mil lions now kept by small banks in the vaults of city institutions which clear for them, would be transferred to fed eral reserve banks. Any intention to interfere with the clearing houses of the country or to do any large amount of clearing be tween the various federal reserve banks is disclaimed by officials, who say there is little likelihood that com petition between the reserve banks and local clearing houses will become so keen as to put the clearing honses in jeopardy for many years, if ever. Members of the board feel confident that it has the power to compel mem ber banks to join in the clearing plan under the provision which requires every federal reserve bank to receive "on deposit at par" from member banks or reserve banks, checks and drafts drawn on its depositors. PURE DRINKING WATER. The geologic resource of greatest value to the health of communities is a supply of pure drinking water. It is generally recognized that a number of diseases, prominent among which are typhoid fever and amoebic dysentery —a disease more common in tropical climates but found also in the United States—are contracted through con taminated food. Therefore a supply of pure water will eliminate one of the sources of such infection. It is highly desirable to obtain sup plies of domestic water from sources other than shallow wells, some of them open, that are found near many homes. The water obtained from deep wells has percolated through sands and other material for so great a distance that its impurities have been removed by filtration, and it possesses a sanitary value that cannot be overestimated, for such water is free from the bacteria caus ing typhoid fever and the protozoa causing amoebic dysentery, and its use obviates the necessity for shal low wells that may serve as a breed ing place for Anopheles, the mosquqi to to which malarial infections are due.

"What is it?" asked the editor. What is it? shouted the indignant citizen. "Why, you refer to me as a greedy jobber." "That is too bad," replied the edi tor. "It is a typographical error, and I am sorry it appeared as it did."
