Announcement of the opening date of the new Orpheum theatre, former- ly known as the Metropolitan, will be made next week, according to an interview with Charles McCarthy, manager. The regular four-act vaudeville bill, appearing on the Fargo-Aberdeen cir- cuit with a snappy three-reel comedy will complete the offering. Prices have been set at fifty-five cents for the vaudeville shows, which are to ap- pear here every Friday evening. Twenty-five cents and ten cents will be the charge for the motion picture shows. Not only has the name of the Met- ropolitan been changed, but the ap- pearance also. Work on the building is rapidly nearing completion. In ad- dition to the alternations as original- ly planned the McCarthys have fit- ted the house with the orchestra pit, a large ,motor driven ventilating sys- tem, insuring an abundant supply of pure air, and two new picture ma- chines, which it is said, are the best make obtainable. Announcement is also made that instead of putting' on but one per- formance of the vaudeville acts, as was the custom when the house was under the management of the Briggs Brothers, two performances will be given. Construction of the new fire- proof projecting booth, of clay tile, and an exit off from the state en- trance the two most welcomed changes in the eyes 6f the public, as the hazard from fire will be nil, it is said, with the net" arrangement. Visits Old Stamping Ground. J. H. Movius of Lidgerwood, N. D., in company with his two sons, paid Big Stone City a short visit this week. The name of Movius is linked up very prominently with the early history of" the town. In fact the Movius store was about all there was to old Inkpa City before it was "transmogri- fied" into Big Stone City. The pres- ent editor of the Headlight has a very distinct recollection of assisting, when a.chunk of a boy, with the delivery of two Marsh harvesters to the Movius store at Inkpa City. These harvesters were brought overland from Monte- video and supplied the dmand for harvesting machinery in this section that year..Big Stone HeadlighV. Race Program At Fair To Be Thriller There will be no going in "cohoots" among the auto racers who will par- ticipate in the big race program of the Big Stone County Fair on September 15, at Clinton. Not according to the challenge issued by S. W. Steece of Sioux City, Iowa, who offered as a side bet the sum of $500 that he could breathe pure air while A. S. Halls and other drivers would be obliged to wear masks. A. S, Halls, who is at the state fair this week where he will race in com- petition with the world's fastest driv- ers, stated before he left that Steece's offers would be smothered, with the additional remark that nothing would stop him, save an accident, from knocking down the track record of that fair. Races at the state air Wednesday in which Halls was to have taken part, were called off on account of rain. Considering the reputation of the drivers at those races, if Halls gets into the money at all, it will mean a dozen feathers in his cap, for he is in the fastest and most unpleas- ant company that an "outside driver" could possibly be associated witl His special that he will drive is a product of his own hands thruout. It was constructed from the ground up in is own shop in this city, while cars used against him are the pride of such fac- tories asthe Deusenberg Mercer and other companies. Two Business Places Robbed At Montevideo Two Montevideo business places were burglarized last Monday. Dur- ing the small hours of the morning, thieves ransacted thecash drawers of the Pure Oil Station and the pro- prietor's trunk of the Grill lunch room. Cash amounting to $95 was taken at the filling station. The thieves were either excited or hard pressed for time, because they overlooked $700 in currency and checks which was under some paper in the drawer below. It looks as tho the work was done by amateurs. At the Grill, $520 was taken from the proprietor's trunk which he was using for a bank. The thieves were apparently well acquaint- ed with the surroundings and circum- stances. This robbery looks rather queer to the police department. Arrests were made immediately fol- lowing the discovery of the thefts three local men being heid on stm- pieion.--Montevideo News. by the county. No other business was transacted. Boys' and Girls' Club Winners To State Fair Fifty-four little pigs, all sons and daughters of the aristocratic element of that clan, were brought together recently in the county where they eyed each other with envy while they were being judged by County Agent M. P. Roske, for the purpose of da- termining the two with the highest Sore, that their owners might be awarded a free trip to the Minnesota State Fair. It was the annual judging of the pig contest of the Big Stone County Boys' and Girls' Club Work. Competition in this work this year surpassed that of previous years, ac- cording to Mr: Roske, and the showing was an excellent example of the pro. gress being made along these lines by the boys and girls of the county. Fifty-four animals were weighed-in ald scored to determine the two high- e in the county. The two whose pigs scoil above the others, consid- ering show yard performance, rate of in and cost of gain, were Paul dwiler's of Big Stone township, ahd Miss Marium Daly's, of Almond Tt7 two a township, received free trip to the te Fair. Others in the county who received a like reward in different contests held at intervals during the past four months, were Speltcer Swenson, Clin- ton, winner in the "A'jgrade of the stock judging contest and David Cordeman, Correll, winner in the "B" grade of the same contest. Miss Elizabeth Hudson f Corrall is also at the fair. Sh is representing the county in the Bread Baking contest, which she scored highest in here some tme ago. In connection with this work, as- surances have bees given out that t erbit by the bays and girls at the county fair at Clinton this year will be the center of much interest. These exhibits, Mr. Roske states, will be a credit to the county and this part of the state. All five of the winners in the con- test mentioned were accompanied to St. Paul, by the county agent, who will make the necessary arrange- ments for them while there. New Clothing Store To Be Opened Next Week Ortonville is to have another cloth- ing store, if plans are carried out as made, according to information re- ceived by John Michell, who rented the building formerly occupied by F. E. Davison to Mr. A. Mark, of Minne- apolis. Mr. Mark is now in the em- ploy of the Palace Clothing Company of Minneapolis. His visit to this city last'week resulted in his decison to make OrtonviUe the location for his new business. Just what his plans are it is impossible to state. It is said that he will be on the ground next Monday when preparations will be made. The building is undergo- ing repairs now and is being painted inside and out. Livestock Breeders Meet At Morris Livestock breeders from Fifteen counties met here Wednesday after- noon at the commercial club rooms to effect an orgmdzation in accor- dance with plans made at the meet- ing in Morris pertaining to the live- stock industry. P. E. Miller who acted as chairman of the meeting was asked to appoint a committee to draw up a constitution and bylaws. It was voted to call the organization the West Cen- tral Livestock and Agricultural Asso- ciation. The livestock men expressed them- selves as favorable to holding a big purebred livestock sate in Morris, but on account of the financial stringen- cy the plan was considered inexpedient at present. Representatives from Big Stone county appointed to assist in the work are O. J. Loftus, Beardsley, and J. H. .Erickson, Clinton. From Lac qui Parle county: Theo. Christianson, Dawson. Swift county: F. L. Thorn- ton, Benson, Y. Laws, Appiet0n.-- Morris Tribune. Resignation Accepted. Word has been received from Rev. Paul Bockhoven at St. Charles that his resignation had been accepted at that place and that he will be at Or- tonville to conduct services in the First Congregational church on the first Sunday in October. Rev. W. E. Griffith, district superintendent of Waseea, will preach here during the balance of this month. Sunday school was held last Sunday and will be held each Sunday after the morning serv- ice. MEETING HELD BY SALVATION ARMY BOARD Officers For Advisory Board Elected At Meeting Held "Wednesday-- Plans F Organization Laid. -- Plans for furthering the work of the Salvation Army in this county and for the successful prosecution of the same, were laid at a meeting of the'Big Stone County advisory board, which was held in this city on Wed- nesday of this week. Officers elected are: C. E. Chrisman, president; R. B. H u d s o n, vice-president; Chester Zwiener, secretary, Wayne, Kelly, treasurer. Board of Managers are: Martin Schoen, Victor Randall, AI Sturgis, E. M. Pike, Dr. B. R. Karn, Dr. Chas. Bolsta an@ R, G. Farring- ton. The local advisory board is but one of three thousand now established in the United States which have a mem- bership of thirty thousand made up principally of business and profes- sional men. These adviser,/boai'ds are auxiliaries of the Salvation Army. Organization of these boards is for the purpose of spreading the Gospel of right living to the rural districts, according to a representative of the Salvation Army who was here at the meeting, and to prevent misery and discontent where it originates. AlsO) for the purpose of producing better living conditions, which in turn will produce better business and in the end fewer crimes and less taxation, it was explained. The advisory board system has been in action over the country for a year now and the wisdom of the ,move has been amply proven. While the Salvation Army has, and always will salvage, as the word implies, the bits of hroken humanity which ap- ply to them for assistance in the larger cities in congested slmts , this year's work has convinced the Army that a, great deal of misfortune, pov- erty, crime and discontent can be lessened thru the advisory boards and the close co-operation of the Sal- vation A.'Z. in the rural distrie and smaller cities where it is said that a great deal of discontent and crime originate. Local Tennis Players Win Tourney At Morris Ortonville tennis players made a clean sweep of the net tourney held at Morris Monday, when Wayne Ross anCt Bob MacMurphey annexed the doubles title and Ross won the singles championship. Sixteen players, re- presenting five towns, participated in the tournament, which was a success in every rspect. Ross deserves a world of credit for his performance, never faltering in his steady and accurate work during the entire day. In the singles he suc- cessively defeated Kenneth Gold, Earl Gold, Bob MacMurphey and Ing Sie- verts. Tho the latter two pressed him to the limit to win, his accurate placements and superior generalship I were enough to turn the tide of bat- I tle in his favor. [ The doubles championship, which / carries with it a handsome loving cup,] was the feature of the day's play. The local combination were given their closest rub by Paul and Earl Gold, who put up a brilliant battle, but they were unable to cope with the greater steadiness of the local men, ho won both sets, 7-5, 7-5. In the semi-finals the Ortonville reprenta- fives were not forced to ex-nd them- selves to defeat Olson and Howe, 6-3, 6-& Finals in the doubles found the lo- cal pair opposed by Sieverts and &dams, and was their best perfor- mance of the day. They literally smothered the Morri pair by the severity of their attack, their crash- ing service and repeated placements. The final score was 6-1, 6-1. Ray Gowan was also a local repre- sentative, and aquitted himself with distinction, but didn't work his way into the finals, The players and their friends were guests at a banquet in the evening, at which time arrange- ments were made to mgke the tourna- ment an annual affair. The local play- ers are loud in their praise at the way the affair was conducted, and for the hospitality shown by the Morris peo- ple. Morris and Hancock Celebrate Road Opening More than 1,434 carloads of people fr(,n outside of Morris attended the celebration of the opening of the ce- ment roadway between Hancock and Morris at the fair grounds last Sun- day. L.P. Zimmerrnan counted them. There were 620 light Minnesota cars, 759 heavy, 13 light from outside the state and 23 heavy, 9 trucks under two tons, 2 wagons and 8 buggies. Judge Oscar Hallam and Mr. Forbes of the Highway Commission were the ' speakers of the afternoom Victim Of Train Robbery Recovers Oswald Hanson, one of the five men, victims of the box-car holdup between here and Correll on August 2, and who lost one leg and suffered a fr- tured skull when he was forced to jump from the train, recovered from his injuries sufficiently to leave the local hospital yesterday. He left im- mediately for his home at Montevideo. Considering the extent of his in- juries his recovery has beea renarko able, it is statedAppleton Press. Laws Governing Hunting Practically Unchanged With the bpening of the hunting season but a week awaySeptembex 16--nimrods the country over are fe- verishly waiting to "get at 'era," while game wardens are laying special stress upon chapters of the 1921 laws in an effort to familiarize the'mo amateur sportsman, at least, of what he can and cannot do, and be within the law. For some unfounded reason tiere has been circulated, according to copies of exchanges reaching The In- dependent desk, and from other sources, a mistaken interpretation of the laws with reference to lieessas. The laws relating reads plainly: "Fees " The . applicant, if a resi- dent of this state shah pay to the county auditor issuing the license the sum of $1.00 as a license fee for hunting game birds, and the sum of $2.00 as a license fee for hunting quadrupeds, (big game), and the sum of $1.00 for taking fur-bearing ani- mals, etc." The only change made in this section over that of 1920 is in reference to the license fee for the taking of big game, which was in- creased from a dollar to two dollars. Stories have been current to the effect that hunters could .have the option of taking out either a one dol- lar license of a three dollar license, which it was said, would permit the holder to ship to any point within the-state not to exceed fifty birds. This is a mistaken idea. There is no three dollar license. Sections of the law which it will be well to remember are 4, and 35, part of which follow; "No person while in a motor vehicle shall take game, nor discharge any firearm therefrom at any protected wild animal, nor carry a m cv oth:4h-,arm  pied or revolver, in a motor vehicle unless the same be unloaded in both barrels and magazine and taken apart or con- tained in a case." also, "every person to whom a license has been issued shall have such license on his person at the time o taking any wild animals in this state, and while going to and from the hunting grounds and shall exhibit the same for inspection to any game warden or peace offcer re- questing to see the same, at any time," To Washington For Finance For Farmers W. F. Schilling, president of the Twin City Milk Producers Associa, tiorh president of the Farmers' Fi- vance Corporation and director of the U. S. Grain Growers Inc., is leaving this week for Washington, D. C., at the request of J. M. Anderson to as- sist in procuring credits from the gov- ernment to assist in moving the nortlf: western grain cro, Mr. Anderson is psident of the Equity Co-operative Exchange, and also is sales nmager for the U. S. Grain Growers, Inc., which is now be* ginning to handle a considerable vol- ume of grain t the Equity. '1- need for finances tO hlp frmer move the crop has never been grate than this sea*on, and Mr. Anderson and Mr. Schilling have begun a vig- orous campaign, which it is believed will receive substantial congressional and senatorial aid for procuring funds. % While some other wheat grower or-" ganlzattot imv a@pli fr funds from the same source, th Equity Co- eperative Exchange is the only one representing a large membership and the own-ship-of property, Be the 15,000,000 or 16J}00,000 bushels of grain that the Equity expects to handle on its own account, the U. "S. Grain Growers Inc., in North Dakota alone have signed up about 10)00,000 bushels, which will  be bandied by the Equity. The combined amount for which Mr. Schilling and the Equity are mak- ing application totals over 25,000,0C0 bushels, and includes the farmers of Minnesota, North Dakota and Mon- tana, as much Montana grain always moves to market thru the twin cities and Superior-Duluth. The member- ship of the Equity Co-operative Ex- change alone is 21,000, most of wbom are grain growers, while the Equity handles almost as much grain from outside sources ms from its own mem- bers and elevators. Miss Madge Kelly and Mrs. Mey- ers visited the Glao family at Red - wood Falls over the week-end, mak- ing the trip by auto. Jack Glaso who has been at the Kelly cottage for the season also made the trip to his home there in company with Leon Lucher who had been visiting him here.

Not only has the name of the Met- ropolitan been changed, but the ap- pearance also. Work on the building is rapidly nearing completion. In ad- dition to the alternations as original- ly planned the McCarthys have fit- ted the house with the orchestra pit, a large ,motor driven ventilating sys- tem, insuring an abundant supply of pure air, and two new picture ma- chines, which it is said, are the best make obtainable. Announcement is also made that instead of putting' on but one per- formance of the vaudeville acts, as was the custom when the house was under the management of the Briggs Brothers, two performances will be given. Construction of the new fire- proof projecting booth, of clay tile, and an exit off from the state en- trance the two most welcomed changes in the eyes 6f the public, as the hazard from fire will be nil, it is said, with the net" arrangement. Visits Old Stamping Ground. J. H. Movius of Lidgerwood, N. D., in company with his two sons, paid Big Stone City a short visit this week. The name of Movius is linked up very prominently with the early history of" the town. In fact the Movius store was about all there was to old Inkpa City before it was "transmogri- fied" into Big Stone City. The pres- ent editor of the Headlight has a very distinct recollection of assisting, when a.chunk of a boy, with the delivery of two Marsh harvesters to the Movius store at Inkpa City. These harvesters were brought overland from Monte- video and supplied the dmand for harvesting machinery in this section that year..Big Stone HeadlighV. Race Program At Fair To Be Thriller There will be no going in "cohoots" among the auto racers who will par- ticipate in the big race program of the Big Stone County Fair on September 15, at Clinton. Not according to the challenge issued by S. W. Steece of Sioux City, Iowa, who offered as a side bet the sum of $500 that he could breathe pure air while A. S. Halls and other drivers would be obliged to wear masks. A. S, Halls, who is at the state fair this week where he will race in com- petition with the world's fastest driv- ers, stated before he left that Steece's offers would be smothered, with the additional remark that nothing would stop him, save an accident, from knocking down the track record of that fair. Races at the state air Wednesday in which Halls was to have taken part, were called off on account of rain. Considering the reputation of the drivers at those races, if Halls gets into the money at all, it will mean a dozen feathers in his cap, for he is in the fastest and most unpleas- ant company that an "outside driver" could possibly be associated witl His special that he will drive is a product of his own hands thruout. It was constructed from the ground up in is own shop in this city, while cars used against him are the pride of such fac- tories asthe Deusenberg Mercer and other companies. Two Business Places Robbed At Montevideo Two Montevideo business places were burglarized last Monday. Dur- ing the small hours of the morning, thieves ransacted thecash drawers of the Pure Oil Station and the pro- prietor's trunk of the Grill lunch room. Cash amounting to $95 was taken at the filling station. The thieves were either excited or hard pressed for time, because they overlooked $700 in currency and checks which was under some paper in the drawer below. It looks as tho the work was done by amateurs. At the Grill, $520 was taken from the proprietor's trunk which he was using for a bank. The thieves were apparently well acquaint- ed with the surroundings and circum- stances. This robbery looks rather queer to the police department. Arrests were made immediately fol- lowing the discovery of the thefts three local men being heid on stm- pieion.--Montevideo News. by the county. No other business was transacted. Boys' and Girls' Club Winners To State Fair Fifty-four little pigs, all sons and daughters of the aristocratic element of that clan, were brought together recently in the county where they eyed each other with envy while they were being judged by County Agent M. P. Roske, for the purpose of da- termining the two with the highest Sore, that their owners might be awarded a free trip to the Minnesota State Fair. It was the annual judging of the pig contest of the Big Stone County Boys' and Girls' Club Work. Competition in this work this year surpassed that of previous years, ac- cording to Mr: Roske, and the showing was an excellent example of the pro. gress being made along these lines by the boys and girls of the county. Fifty-four animals were weighed-in ald scored to determine the two high- e in the county. The two whose pigs scoil above the others, consid- ering show yard performance, rate of in and cost of gain, were Paul dwiler's of Big Stone township, ahd Miss Marium Daly's, of Almond Tt7 two a township, received free trip to the te Fair. Others in the county who received a like reward in different contests held at intervals during the past four months, were Speltcer Swenson, Clin- ton, winner in the "A'jgrade of the stock judging contest and David Cordeman, Correll, winner in the "B" grade of the same contest. Miss Elizabeth Hudson f Corrall is also at the fair. Sh is representing the county in the Bread Baking contest, which she scored highest in here some tme ago. In connection with this work, as- surances have bees given out that t erbit by the bays and girls at the county fair at Clinton this year will be the center of much interest. These exhibits, Mr. Roske states, will be a credit to the county and this part of the state. All five of the winners in the con- test mentioned were accompanied to St. Paul, by the county agent, who will make the necessary arrange- ments for them while there. New Clothing Store To Be Opened Next Week Ortonville is to have another cloth- ing store, if plans are carried out as made, according to information re- ceived by John Michell, who rented the building formerly occupied by F. E. Davison to Mr. A. Mark, of Minne- apolis. Mr. Mark is now in the em- ploy of the Palace Clothing Company of Minneapolis. His visit to this city last'week resulted in his decison to make OrtonviUe the location for his new business. Just what his plans are it is impossible to state. It is said that he will be on the ground next Monday when preparations will be made. The building is undergo- ing repairs now and is being painted inside and out. Livestock Breeders Meet At Morris Livestock breeders from Fifteen counties met here Wednesday after- noon at the commercial club rooms to effect an orgmdzation in accor- dance with plans made at the meet- ing in Morris pertaining to the live- stock industry. P. E. Miller who acted as chairman of the meeting was asked to appoint a committee to draw up a constitution and bylaws. It was voted to call the organization the West Cen- tral Livestock and Agricultural Asso- ciation. The livestock men expressed them- selves as favorable to holding a big purebred livestock sate in Morris, but on account of the financial stringen- cy the plan was considered inexpedient at present. Representatives from Big Stone county appointed to assist in the work are O. J. Loftus, Beardsley, and J. H. .Erickson, Clinton. From Lac qui Parle county: Theo. Christianson, Dawson. Swift county: F. L. Thorn- ton, Benson, Y. Laws, Appiet0n.-- Morris Tribune. Resignation Accepted. Word has been received from Rev. Paul Bockhoven at St. Charles that his resignation had been accepted at that place and that he will be at Or- tonville to conduct services in the First Congregational church on the first Sunday in October. Rev. W. E. Griffith, district superintendent of Waseea, will preach here during the balance of this month. Sunday school was held last Sunday and will be held each Sunday after the morning serv- ice. MEETING HELD BY SALVATION ARMY BOARD Officers For Advisory Board Elected At Meeting Held "Wednesday-- Plans F Organization Laid. -- Plans for furthering the work of the Salvation Army in this county and for the successful prosecution of the same, were laid at a meeting of the'Big Stone County advisory board, which was held in this city on Wed- nesday of this week. Officers elected are: C. E. Chrisman, president; R. B. H u d s o n, vice-president; Chester Zwiener, secretary, Wayne, Kelly, treasurer. Board of Managers are: Martin Schoen, Victor Randall, AI Sturgis, E. M. Pike, Dr. B. R. Karn, Dr. Chas. Bolsta an@ R, G. Farring- ton. The local advisory board is but one of three thousand now established in the United States which have a mem- bership of thirty thousand made up principally of business and profes- sional men. These adviser,/boai'ds are auxiliaries of the Salvation Army. Organization of these boards is for the purpose of spreading the Gospel of right living to the rural districts, according to a representative of the Salvation Army who was here at the meeting, and to prevent misery and discontent where it originates. AlsO) for the purpose of producing better living conditions, which in turn will produce better business and in the end fewer crimes and less taxation, it was explained. The advisory board system has been in action over the country for a year now and the wisdom of the ,move has been amply proven. While the Salvation Army has, and always will salvage, as the word implies, the bits of hroken humanity which ap- ply to them for assistance in the larger cities in congested slmts , this year's work has convinced the Army that a, great deal of misfortune, pov- erty, crime and discontent can be lessened thru the advisory boards and the close co-operation of the Sal- vation A.'Z. in the rural distrie and smaller cities where it is said that a great deal of discontent and crime originate. Local Tennis Players Win Tourney At Morris Ortonville tennis players made a clean sweep of the net tourney held at Morris Monday, when Wayne Ross anCt Bob MacMurphey annexed the doubles title and Ross won the singles championship. Sixteen players, re- presenting five towns, participated in the tournament, which was a success in every rspect. Ross deserves a world of credit for his performance, never faltering in his steady and accurate work during the entire day. In the singles he suc- cessively defeated Kenneth Gold, Earl Gold, Bob MacMurphey and Ing Sie- verts. Tho the latter two pressed him to the limit to win, his accurate placements and superior generalship I were enough to turn the tide of bat- I tle in his favor. [ The doubles championship, which / carries with it a handsome loving cup,] was the feature of the day's play. The local combination were given their closest rub by Paul and Earl Gold, who put up a brilliant battle, but they were unable to cope with the greater steadiness of the local men, ho won both sets, 7-5, 7-5. In the semi-finals the Ortonville reprenta- fives were not forced to ex-nd them- selves to defeat Olson and Howe, 6-3, 6-& Finals in the doubles found the lo- cal pair opposed by Sieverts and &dams, and was their best perfor- mance of the day. They literally smothered the Morri pair by the severity of their attack, their crash- ing service and repeated placements. The final score was 6-1, 6-1. Ray Gowan was also a local repre- sentative, and aquitted himself with distinction, but didn't work his way into the finals, The players and their friends were guests at a banquet in the evening, at which time arrange- ments were made to mgke the tourna- ment an annual affair. The local play- ers are loud in their praise at the way the affair was conducted, and for the hospitality shown by the Morris peo- ple. Morris and Hancock Celebrate Road Opening More than 1,434 carloads of people fr(,n outside of Morris attended the celebration of the opening of the ce- ment roadway between Hancock and Morris at the fair grounds last Sun- day. L.P. Zimmerrnan counted them. There were 620 light Minnesota cars, 759 heavy, 13 light from outside the state and 23 heavy, 9 trucks under two tons, 2 wagons and 8 buggies. Judge Oscar Hallam and Mr. Forbes of the Highway Commission were the ' speakers of the afternoom Victim Of Train Robbery Recovers Oswald Hanson, one of the five men, victims of the box-car holdup between here and Correll on August 2, and who lost one leg and suffered a fr- tured skull when he was forced to jump from the train, recovered from his injuries sufficiently to leave the local hospital yesterday. He left im- mediately for his home at Montevideo. Considering the extent of his in- juries his recovery has beea renarko able, it is statedAppleton Press. Laws Governing Hunting Practically Unchanged With the bpening of the hunting season but a week awaySeptembex 16--nimrods the country over are fe- verishly waiting to "get at 'era," while game wardens are laying special stress upon chapters of the 1921 laws in an effort to familiarize the'mo amateur sportsman, at least, of what he can and cannot do, and be within the law. For some unfounded reason tiere has been circulated, according to copies of exchanges reaching The In- dependent desk, and from other sources, a mistaken interpretation of the laws with reference to lieessas. The laws relating reads plainly: "Fees " The . applicant, if a resi- dent of this state shah pay to the county auditor issuing the license the sum of $1.00 as a license fee for hunting game birds, and the sum of $2.00 as a license fee for hunting quadrupeds, (big game), and the sum of $1.00 for taking fur-bearing ani- mals, etc." The only change made in this section over that of 1920 is in reference to the license fee for the taking of big game, which was in- creased from a dollar to two dollars. Stories have been current to the effect that hunters could .have the option of taking out either a one dol- lar license of a three dollar license, which it was said, would permit the holder to ship to any point within the-state not to exceed fifty birds. This is a mistaken idea. There is no three dollar license. Sections of the law which it will be well to remember are 4, and 35, part of which follow; "No person while in a motor vehicle shall take game, nor discharge any firearm therefrom at any protected wild animal, nor carry a m cv oth:4h-,arm  pied or revolver, in a motor vehicle unless the same be unloaded in both barrels and magazine and taken apart or con- tained in a case." also, "every person to whom a license has been issued shall have such license on his person at the time o taking any wild animals in this state, and while going to and from the hunting grounds and shall exhibit the same for inspection to any game warden or peace offcer re- questing to see the same, at any time," To Washington For Finance For Farmers W. F. Schilling, president of the Twin City Milk Producers Associa, tiorh president of the Farmers' Fi- vance Corporation and director of the U. S. Grain Growers Inc., is leaving this week for Washington, D. C., at the request of J. M. Anderson to as- sist in procuring credits from the gov- ernment to assist in moving the nortlf: western grain cro, Mr. Anderson is psident of the Equity Co-operative Exchange, and also is sales nmager for the U. S. Grain Growers, Inc., which is now be* ginning to handle a considerable vol- ume of grain t the Equity. '1- need for finances tO hlp frmer move the crop has never been grate than this sea*on, and Mr. Anderson and Mr. Schilling have begun a vig- orous campaign, which it is believed will receive substantial congressional and senatorial aid for procuring funds. % While some other wheat grower or-" ganlzattot imv a@pli fr funds from the same source, th Equity Co- eperative Exchange is the only one representing a large membership and the own-ship-of property, Be the 15,000,000 or 16J}00,000 bushels of grain that the Equity expects to handle on its own account, the U. "S. Grain Growers Inc., in North Dakota alone have signed up about 10)00,000 bushels, which will  be bandied by the Equity. The combined amount for which Mr. Schilling and the Equity are mak- ing application totals over 25,000,0C0 bushels, and includes the farmers of Minnesota, North Dakota and Mon- tana, as much Montana grain always moves to market thru the twin cities and Superior-Duluth. The member- ship of the Equity Co-operative Ex- change alone is 21,000, most of wbom are grain growers, while the Equity handles almost as much grain from outside sources ms from its own mem- bers and elevators. Miss Madge Kelly and Mrs. Mey- ers visited the Glao family at Red - wood Falls over the week-end, mak- ing the trip by auto. Jack Glaso who has been at the Kelly cottage for the season also made the trip to his home there in company with Leon Lucher who had been visiting him here.

Carnival Staged By Legion A Grand Success Crowds estimated at from fifteen hundred to two thousand patronized the Legion Carnival during its three night stand here last week. Close to six hundred dollars will be in the coffers of the local Legion post over and above expenditures as a result of the splendid showing the boys made, according to the calcula- tion of those who were in charge of the financial end. The show was a cmpleth success from start to finish, both in a financial way, and from the viewpoint of those who attended. Ex- pressions of astonishment were heard on every hand, at the capability of the Legion workers, and performers. "Where in the world did they get all those animals?" (referring to Doc Schoen's menagerie), and "who ever thought that Curt Cole could sing such a variety of popular songs?" were samples of remarks made. The climax of the carnival came 00NEW ORPHEUM THEATRE TO BE with the drawing of numbers to pick the lucky one who was to receive the Ford coupe, given away by the Le- gion.

Announcement of the opening date of the new Orpheum theatre, former- ly known as the Metropolitan, will be made next week, according to an interview with Charles McCarthy, manager. The regular four-act vaudeville bill, appearing on the Fargo-Aberdeen cir- cuit with a snappy three-reel comedy will complete the offering. Prices have been set at fifty-five cents for the vaudeville shows, which are to ap- pear here every Friday evening. Twenty-five cents and ten cents will be the charge for the motion picture shows. Not only has the name of the Met- ropolitan been changed, but the ap- pearance also. Work on the building is rapidly nearing completion. In ad- dition to the alternations as original- ly planned the McCarthys have fit- ted the house with the orchestra pit, a large ,motor driven ventilating sys- tem, insuring an abundant supply of pure air, and two new picture ma- chines, which it is said, are the best make obtainable. Announcement is also made that instead of putting' on but one per- formance of the vaudeville acts, as was the custom when the house was under the management of the Briggs Brothers, two performances will be given. Construction of the new fire- proof projecting booth, of clay tile, and an exit off from the state en- trance the two most welcomed changes in the eyes 6f the public, as the hazard from fire will be nil, it is said, with the net" arrangement. Visits Old Stamping Ground. J. H. Movius of Lidgerwood, N. D., in company with his two sons, paid Big Stone City a short visit this week. The name of Movius is linked up very prominently with the early history of" the town. In fact the Movius store was about all there was to old Inkpa City before it was "transmogri- fied" into Big Stone City. The pres- ent editor of the Headlight has a very distinct recollection of assisting, when a.chunk of a boy, with the delivery of two Marsh harvesters to the Movius store at Inkpa City. These harvesters were brought overland from Monte- video and supplied the dmand for harvesting machinery in this section that year..Big Stone HeadlighV. Race Program At Fair To Be Thriller There will be no going in "cohoots" among the auto racers who will par- ticipate in the big race program of the Big Stone County Fair on September 15, at Clinton. Not according to the challenge issued by S. W. Steece of Sioux City, Iowa, who offered as a side bet the sum of $500 that he could breathe pure air while A. S. Halls and other drivers would be obliged to wear masks. A. S, Halls, who is at the state fair this week where he will race in com- petition with the world's fastest driv- ers, stated before he left that Steece's offers would be smothered, with the additional remark that nothing would stop him, save an accident, from knocking down the track record of that fair. Races at the state air Wednesday in which Halls was to have taken part, were called off on account of rain. Considering the reputation of the drivers at those races, if Halls gets into the money at all, it will mean a dozen feathers in his cap, for he is in the fastest and most unpleas- ant company that an "outside driver" could possibly be associated witl His special that he will drive is a product of his own hands thruout. It was constructed from the ground up in is own shop in this city, while cars used against him are the pride of such fac- tories asthe Deusenberg Mercer and other companies. Two Business Places Robbed At Montevideo Two Montevideo business places were burglarized last Monday. Dur- ing the small hours of the morning, thieves ransacted thecash drawers of the Pure Oil Station and the pro- prietor's trunk of the Grill lunch room. Cash amounting to $95 was taken at the filling station. The thieves were either excited or hard pressed for time, because they overlooked $700 in currency and checks which was under some paper in the drawer below. It looks as tho the work was done by amateurs. At the Grill, $520 was taken from the proprietor's trunk which he was using for a bank. The thieves were apparently well acquaint- ed with the surroundings and circum- stances. This robbery looks rather queer to the police department. Arrests were made immediately fol- lowing the discovery of the thefts three local men being heid on stm- pieion.--Montevideo News. by the county. No other business was transacted. Boys' and Girls' Club Winners To State Fair Fifty-four little pigs, all sons and daughters of the aristocratic element of that clan, were brought together recently in the county where they eyed each other with envy while they were being judged by County Agent M. P. Roske, for the purpose of da- termining the two with the highest Sore, that their owners might be awarded a free trip to the Minnesota State Fair. It was the annual judging of the pig contest of the Big Stone County Boys' and Girls' Club Work. Competition in this work this year surpassed that of previous years, ac- cording to Mr: Roske, and the showing was an excellent example of the pro. gress being made along these lines by the boys and girls of the county. Fifty-four animals were weighed-in ald scored to determine the two high- e in the county. The two whose pigs scoil above the others, consid- ering show yard performance, rate of in and cost of gain, were Paul dwiler's of Big Stone township, ahd Miss Marium Daly's, of Almond Tt7 two a township, received free trip to the te Fair. Others in the county who received a like reward in different contests held at intervals during the past four months, were Speltcer Swenson, Clin- ton, winner in the "A'jgrade of the stock judging contest and David Cordeman, Correll, winner in the "B" grade of the same contest. Miss Elizabeth Hudson f Corrall is also at the fair. Sh is representing the county in the Bread Baking contest, which she scored highest in here some tme ago. In connection with this work, as- surances have bees given out that t erbit by the bays and girls at the county fair at Clinton this year will be the center of much interest. These exhibits, Mr. Roske states, will be a credit to the county and this part of the state. All five of the winners in the con- test mentioned were accompanied to St. Paul, by the county agent, who will make the necessary arrange- ments for them while there. New Clothing Store To Be Opened Next Week Ortonville is to have another cloth- ing store, if plans are carried out as made, according to information re- ceived by John Michell, who rented the building formerly occupied by F. E. Davison to Mr. A. Mark, of Minne- apolis. Mr. Mark is now in the em- ploy of the Palace Clothing Company of Minneapolis. His visit to this city last'week resulted in his decison to make OrtonviUe the location for his new business. Just what his plans are it is impossible to state. It is said that he will be on the ground next Monday when preparations will be made. The building is undergo- ing repairs now and is being painted inside and out. Livestock Breeders Meet At Morris Livestock breeders from Fifteen counties met here Wednesday after- noon at the commercial club rooms to effect an orgmdzation in accor- dance with plans made at the meet- ing in Morris pertaining to the live- stock industry. P. E. Miller who acted as chairman of the meeting was asked to appoint a committee to draw up a constitution and bylaws. It was voted to call the organization the West Cen- tral Livestock and Agricultural Asso- ciation. The livestock men expressed them- selves as favorable to holding a big purebred livestock sate in Morris, but on account of the financial stringen- cy the plan was considered inexpedient at present. Representatives from Big Stone county appointed to assist in the work are O. J. Loftus, Beardsley, and J. H. .Erickson, Clinton. From Lac qui Parle county: Theo. Christianson, Dawson. Swift county: F. L. Thorn- ton, Benson, Y. Laws, Appiet0n.-- Morris Tribune. Resignation Accepted. Word has been received from Rev. Paul Bockhoven at St. Charles that his resignation had been accepted at that place and that he will be at Or- tonville to conduct services in the First Congregational church on the first Sunday in October. Rev. W. E. Griffith, district superintendent of Waseea, will preach here during the balance of this month. Sunday school was held last Sunday and will be held each Sunday after the morning serv- ice. MEETING HELD BY SALVATION ARMY BOARD Officers For Advisory Board Elected At Meeting Held "Wednesday-- Plans F Organization Laid. -- Plans for furthering the work of the Salvation Army in this county and for the successful prosecution of the same, were laid at a meeting of the'Big Stone County advisory board, which was held in this city on Wed- nesday of this week. Officers elected are: C. E. Chrisman, president; R. B. H u d s o n, vice-president; Chester Zwiener, secretary, Wayne, Kelly, treasurer. Board of Managers are: Martin Schoen, Victor Randall, AI Sturgis, E. M. Pike, Dr. B. R. Karn, Dr. Chas. Bolsta an@ R, G. Farring- ton. The local advisory board is but one of three thousand now established in the United States which have a mem- bership of thirty thousand made up principally of business and profes- sional men. These adviser,/boai'ds are auxiliaries of the Salvation Army. Organization of these boards is for the purpose of spreading the Gospel of right living to the rural districts, according to a representative of the Salvation Army who was here at the meeting, and to prevent misery and discontent where it originates. AlsO) for the purpose of producing better living conditions, which in turn will produce better business and in the end fewer crimes and less taxation, it was explained. The advisory board system has been in action over the country for a year now and the wisdom of the ,move has been amply proven. While the Salvation Army has, and always will salvage, as the word implies, the bits of hroken humanity which ap- ply to them for assistance in the larger cities in congested slmts , this year's work has convinced the Army that a, great deal of misfortune, pov- erty, crime and discontent can be lessened thru the advisory boards and the close co-operation of the Sal- vation A.'Z. in the rural distrie and smaller cities where it is said that a great deal of discontent and crime originate. Local Tennis Players Win Tourney At Morris Ortonville tennis players made a clean sweep of the net tourney held at Morris Monday, when Wayne Ross anCt Bob MacMurphey annexed the doubles title and Ross won the singles championship. Sixteen players, re- presenting five towns, participated in the tournament, which was a success in every rspect. Ross deserves a world of credit for his performance, never faltering in his steady and accurate work during the entire day. In the singles he suc- cessively defeated Kenneth Gold, Earl Gold, Bob MacMurphey and Ing Sie- verts. Tho the latter two pressed him to the limit to win, his accurate placements and superior generalship I were enough to turn the tide of bat- I tle in his favor. [ The doubles championship, which / carries with it a handsome loving cup,] was the feature of the day's play. The local combination were given their closest rub by Paul and Earl Gold, who put up a brilliant battle, but they were unable to cope with the greater steadiness of the local men, ho won both sets, 7-5, 7-5. In the semi-finals the Ortonville reprenta- fives were not forced to ex-nd them- selves to defeat Olson and Howe, 6-3, 6-& Finals in the doubles found the lo- cal pair opposed by Sieverts and &dams, and was their best perfor- mance of the day. They literally smothered the Morri pair by the severity of their attack, their crash- ing service and repeated placements. The final score was 6-1, 6-1. Ray Gowan was also a local repre- sentative, and aquitted himself with distinction, but didn't work his way into the finals, The players and their friends were guests at a banquet in the evening, at which time arrange- ments were made to mgke the tourna- ment an annual affair. The local play- ers are loud in their praise at the way the affair was conducted, and for the hospitality shown by the Morris peo- ple. Morris and Hancock Celebrate Road Opening More than 1,434 carloads of people fr(,n outside of Morris attended the celebration of the opening of the ce- ment roadway between Hancock and Morris at the fair grounds last Sun- day. L.P. Zimmerrnan counted them. There were 620 light Minnesota cars, 759 heavy, 13 light from outside the state and 23 heavy, 9 trucks under two tons, 2 wagons and 8 buggies. Judge Oscar Hallam and Mr. Forbes of the Highway Commission were the ' speakers of the afternoom Victim Of Train Robbery Recovers Oswald Hanson, one of the five men, victims of the box-car holdup between here and Correll on August 2, and who lost one leg and suffered a fr- tured skull when he was forced to jump from the train, recovered from his injuries sufficiently to leave the local hospital yesterday. He left im- mediately for his home at Montevideo. Considering the extent of his in- juries his recovery has beea renarko able, it is statedAppleton Press. Laws Governing Hunting Practically Unchanged With the bpening of the hunting season but a week awaySeptembex 16--nimrods the country over are fe- verishly waiting to "get at 'era," while game wardens are laying special stress upon chapters of the 1921 laws in an effort to familiarize the'mo amateur sportsman, at least, of what he can and cannot do, and be within the law. For some unfounded reason tiere has been circulated, according to copies of exchanges reaching The In- dependent desk, and from other sources, a mistaken interpretation of the laws with reference to lieessas. The laws relating reads plainly: "Fees " The . applicant, if a resi- dent of this state shah pay to the county auditor issuing the license the sum of $1.00 as a license fee for hunting game birds, and the sum of $2.00 as a license fee for hunting quadrupeds, (big game), and the sum of $1.00 for taking fur-bearing ani- mals, etc." The only change made in this section over that of 1920 is in reference to the license fee for the taking of big game, which was in- creased from a dollar to two dollars. Stories have been current to the effect that hunters could .have the option of taking out either a one dol- lar license of a three dollar license, which it was said, would permit the holder to ship to any point within the-state not to exceed fifty birds. This is a mistaken idea. There is no three dollar license. Sections of the law which it will be well to remember are 4, and 35, part of which follow; "No person while in a motor vehicle shall take game, nor discharge any firearm therefrom at any protected wild animal, nor carry a m cv oth:4h-,arm  pied or revolver, in a motor vehicle unless the same be unloaded in both barrels and magazine and taken apart or con- tained in a case." also, "every person to whom a license has been issued shall have such license on his person at the time o taking any wild animals in this state, and while going to and from the hunting grounds and shall exhibit the same for inspection to any game warden or peace offcer re- questing to see the same, at any time," To Washington For Finance For Farmers W.
