CObs To Play Series Dwig Fair The Colonial Cuts will make their final appearance on the local baseball diamond for the present season next week when they will play the fast teams representing the towns of Beach and Sidney at the Dawson County Fair. The games will be staged on the mornings of the 24th and 25th at 10 o'clock at Yellowstone Park, which will give everyone ample time to re turn to town and partake of the noon day meal before going to the big Fair in the afternoon. This feature will no doubt be one which will attract many people to the Fair. The Cubs have won for themselves a reputation of being one of the fastest, if not the fastest, amateur club in the state, and as this will be the last chance the local enthusiasts will have of seeing them in action, the games should draw immense crowds. The Cubs are all in A-i condition and will be able to put up the games .f their lives against the Beach and Sidney clubs. As both Beach and Sidney are very strong this series is bound ...

That the result of the state elee Lions in Vermost and Maine mean a tremendous Democratic victory in No veniber, is freely admitted by all ex cept the bitterest partisans. Politi cal experts have done some analyzing. aid some claim to have reached nove' conclusions.

YELLOWSTONE MONITOR. F'ubitshed at Glendive. Dawen County, Montana by E. A. MARTIN. SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, $2.00 PER YEAR Entered as second-class matter March 3, 1906. at the rostofice at Glendive. Mont., under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1879. THURSDAY. OCT. 3, 1912. A Dawson county steps into a most prominent place politically this year owing to the large vote that will be cast at the November election. With three county tickets in the field and all the candidates busy, politics is necessarily the most discussed sub ject of the day. The Republicans during the past week seem to have taken on a new lease of life and undoubtedly are getting many of their people back into line. There is no denying the fact that the Progressive element is a powerful factor in Dawson county and while it is out of the question for them to carry their ticket to success at this election, they un iloubtedly have as good reason to hope for the success of their ticket as have the Re!ublicans. The Democrats h...

Only 7 Per Cent of 20100*WM0 pMes Public Thor."ghfaree In This Country Are imrpoeYi. There are 1,100,000 miles of public roads in this country. Only 150,000 miles, or 7 per cent, are improved. All the rest can be fairly described as bad roads. The waste of our natural resources, reckless as it is, is noth. lug compared to the money waste brought about by this condition of our highways. It costs the French peasant an av erage of 12 cents a mile per ton to haul his produce to market. It costs the American farmer an average of 25 cents a mile per ton, or 100 per cent more than the Frenchman. Dur ing the year 1905-1906 hauling of farm produce to shipping points amounted to between forty and forty-five million tons weight. The average haul was 9.4 miles. If the farmers could have done their hauling over French roads, instead cf their own inferior ones, they would have netted $58,900,000 more on their crops. But all the hauling to tipping points Is not done by farmers by any means. The in...
