Vol. 9, No. 15. Washington, D. C., Sept. 30, 1908. Editor of the Bowbells Tribune: Sir:—Professional and business men, farmers, laborers, in fact men of prac tically every calling, will be offered an unusual opportunity on October 15th, when Uncle Sam will sell to the high est bidders, the town lots contained in two of the Government townsites on the Port Shaw unit of the Sun River irrigation project, Montana. This unit of the Sun River,project is situated a little west of the center, of the state, about 25 miles from Great Falls. The system when completed wil^ provide for the reclamation of about 276,000 acres of fine farthing land. Throughout the whole project the farm village idea will be carried out, towns being established at inter vals of about six miles. Water is now available for about 16,000 acres on the Fort Shaw unit and the land is being taken up rapidly. On this tract the Fort Shaw and Simms townsites have been laid out, with wide streets, boulevards and parks and extensive areas for public buildings. The lots will be sold at Auc tion for cash, and there are lots enough so that each farmer if he desires may purchase a lot in town, and after hav ing secured, title to his farm can live there, where.he can enjoy the social and commercial advantages incident to town life. If he cares to live on the farm he will stilfabe within three miles from the graded schools, store, churches, creameries, etc Many of the lots con tain several acres and are suitable fqr dairying, poultry raiBlng, or trpck farming. The influx of a large number farmers tb this section is creating a demand for v all ..aorta of supplies, and all kinds of in dustries, and to the manufacturer, artisan, and business man numerous chances, for making money in these new towns will present themselves. The doctor and the cabinet maker, the law yer, journalist and banker, will? all flnd -their niche where they will be free from thecrushingcompetition, enlarge WHY at this bank. On The Fort Shaw Unit 6f The Sun River Irrigation Project In Montana—Auction Sale of Lots on The 15th of October cities and where but little capital isre quired to make a beginning. As the agricultural lands have been cut in farms of 40 and 80 acres this proiect will become a densely populated agricultural community. Its prosperi ty is assured by the unfailing water supply which will be furnished by the government canals and ditches, and this prosperity will he reflected in the substantial growth and success of the towns which are being established there. As Montana's chief industries have been mining and stock raising, it fol lows that its population has subsisted mainly on imported food products, and it will be many years, before the supply of home. grown food stuffs will equal the demand. This fact insures good markets and high prices. These little towns will become the farmers'ship ping points and his source of supply.

JM$-V The mail order business is the quack doctor of commerce. It promises much and guarantees nothing. Like patent medicine the directions are always on the inside and you have to buy a non returnable package before you can find out what they are. No mail order house helped to build the little white school house in your district, or turnpike tfoe road past your door. No mail order house ever took you by the hand when you were in dis tress and told you to let that little ac count go until after harvest next year. No mail order house ever sold you a vehicle and spent every cent of its profits right in the community where you and your neighbors could get it all back again. No mail order house ever shevea its patent leather shoes under your, table and rejoiced with you when you were triad, nor spoke encouraging words in affliction, nor stood with un covered head beside the grave when your children died. No, the mail order house is after money. Every dollar it gets its hands on will be jerked out of your neighbor hood forever. The mail orddr house may bear on its face the semblance of friendship^ but no human heart beats under its cloak of hypocrisy. Senti ment to it is unknown. The whole in stitution is as cold and bloodless as a corpse. All the mail order houses in Christen dom would not increase the value of yoilr farm a cent. They are parasites to whom life is only possible so-long as they can suck blood out of the com munities to the upbuilding of which they contribute nothing. They create no local market for the prbjluct you have for Bhle. They have no property in your county which, can be assessed to help bear your, burden of taxation. Your local dealer ne^ds neither advo-* cate hor defense: Hismethodsrest up on principles that have built up in this country a system of. internal commerce which is the marVef'and admiration'of the world.

National Dakota general prosperity of the community' that built it up. Honestly, now, don't you really pat yourself on the back when you spend your money in such a way that in sup? plying your own wants you help build up the neighborhood in which you live? Of course you do, and you act on that idea yourself, hut the trouble is you don't talk it enough to your friends.

J. C. Marcy, an Old and Well-Known Citizen of Minot, Days of Adversity When You Need Help of Home Dealer Loses His Life in His Burning Dwelling in That City With his limbs burned off and his body roasted beyond recognition, the remains of Col. J. C. Marcy, aged seventy-seven years and one time one of the most famous legal lights in the Northwest, if not in the United States, was found in his house at 1 o'clock this morning, after a fire which practically destroyed the building had been ex tinguished. Col. Marcy was lying, face downward, on the floor, with his left shoulder rest ing against the stove. To his right was a bed, on which it is thought that he was lying when the fire started,, and near the bed in the east side of the room, was a table, and at this point the floor was burned through. It is thought that Col. Marcy was ly ing on the bed, possibly reading, and that the lamp was on a shelf above the table. Presumably the lamp fell in some way, probably causing an ex plosion and igniting the bed clothes and the furniture in the room. The aged man made an attempt to escape and was overcome with the smoke and flames which burst forth rapidly. The aged cofpnel fell to the floor, only a few feet frojn the bed. It is thought that he was dead long before the fire department arrived. The fire alarm came in about 12:30 o'clock and in a few minutes the entire house was in flames! The fire boys showed great heroism jn jattempting to rescue the aged man, but it wrs all in vain, so fierce were the flames. The building was like a seething furnace when the firemen arrived. J. M. O' Connell made a heroic attempt to get inside of the building, and in doing so was badly burned. Others also tried to enter the burning structure, by wrap ping themselves in wet blankets, but it was of no use, the flames were too powerful. Col. Marcy was a familiar figure about the law offices in Minot. He re tired from active practice some time ago and lived alone in a little house at Reishus and Sixth streets. In his day ki nt. Bank B. M. WOHLWEND, Cashier. E DEALERS II6ED BURNS TO DEATH (Minot Optic, Oct. 5) he was one of the best attorneys in the country. His name can be found in the supreme court records of many of the eastern states as well as in North Da kota. At one time he was appointed assistant attorney general to prosecute violations of the liquor law. He was also wealthy at one time and was con sidered one of the brainiest men in the country. The aged colonel had his wiBh. The weight of seventy-seven years weighed hard upon him, and a few days ago he made the remark to one of his friends that he hoped he would not live the year out.
