The doctors are to be commended for their enterprise and it is to be hoped the public generally will show their appreciation by giving the institution their hearty financial support.

The installation of a portion of the sewer system in Choteau has resulted in many of the wells in town going dry. This is particularly true of the wells near Main street, among them being the well at the fire station, along side the old Silverman-Cohen building. Before work was started on the sewer system, it was impossible to pump this well dry, even with powerful stem pumps. However, during the past few days, the water has been gradually disappearing, until only a foot of water remained for fire-fighting purposes. Workmen have been employed by the city fathers to sink the well deeper, and it is thought that within the next few days we will again have an adequate supply for all purposes. The “Hole-in-the-Wall” restaurant next to the Club Saloon will probably open next week.

12/11/14 Farmington Notes: The writer had not been to Choteau for more than a year until about a week ago. It was hard to believe it was the same old town. Such beautiful sidewalks, residences and business blocks. In looking for the old landmarks, I couldn't believe it was the old Choteau House until the genial William was seen through the window. The sidewalks have changed the appearance of everything. Old Hamilton street, don't know its new name and don't care, well isn't it up to date? Missed the old familiar horses that were always tied along the streets. If Frank McDermott should ever return where will he sit? The posts on main street were convenient but added nothing to the looks of the town. Surely, there isn't a prettier town anywhere.

Businesses pony up several hundred dollars to defray costs to the Commercial Club committee pursing Choteau as a factory site for the sugar beet industry. J.W. Chapel has moved his tin shop form the little log building west of the old Hannon store to the room adjoining Mrs. Chapel's new restaurant on First street west.
