What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
THE INLAND EMPIRE MOORE, MONTANA, DECEMBER 28, 1905 Devoted to the interests of Rock Creek Bench and Judith Basin. In polities Republican. INSTITUTE A SUCCESS Regardless of the Cold. Ranchers and Their Wives Attend the Meeting and Show Great Interest -will Come Again In view of the fact that the day was cold and raw, a small meeting was expected to turn out to hear Pro- fessors Elliott and Fisher. But contrary to these expectations, a large crowd gathered, composed of both sexes, and listened intently to the addresses of both gentlemen. In the the absence of both the president and vioe-presideut the meeting was called to order by G. H. Beasley, chairman of the program committee Music was rendered by the Moore Mandolin Club and received hearty applause. A solo was then sang by G. H. Beasley after which Professor Elliott addressed the meeting on the \Possibilities of the Creamery.\ The audience manifested great interest in this subject. Professor Elliott handled the subject in a masterful manner and many through the audience were seen tak- ing notes. A few of the many good points to be re- membered are the following: The unlimited demand for good butter in Montana, as we are shipping in one million dollars worth of but- ter, cheese and condensed milk annually. The best chance for the making of the purest kind of butter and cheese with our climate and water. If we get a creamery well established and in a pros- perous condition we may count our land worth $10 per acre more, as the locality with the creamery is the local- ity that will induce the eastern farmer to come here. There is great need for purer and better milk as supplied by the ranchers. The rarrcher must supply the flavor then look to tie butter maker to make a prime article. Be careful of the milk or cream on the farm, don't place cream where it will take up taints. All work together to make this creamery a go, for it is one of the things that will help the whole community Deliver cream as often as possible—the oftener the better. After a solo_by Dr. S. S. Owen, Professor Fisher spoke on Horticulture. He said in part: \Fruit especially the hardier apples, can be grown in this section if the follewingpregautions are taken: \The trees *ill have to be watered by hand the first year or two and cultivated ,continuously during the growing season at intervals of every week or ten days. The ground should be mulched during winter months and the mulch either plowed under or taken off during the summer so that cultivation can be carried on. The trees also need some protection against sun -scald and this can be accomplished hy wrapping the trees with paper. , \The varieties best adapted to the conditions here are, for summer, Yellow Transparent; fall, Duchess; late fall - an - d - early winter, Wealthy;-winter i -Alexa-nder, Northwestern Greening and for the crabs the Transcen- dent and Whitney No. 20.\ The night session was not very well attended but the interest manifested was even greater than at the af- ternoon session. Professor Elliott spoke upon the dif- ferent breeds of animals for different purposes and the kind of animal to look to for beef or for butter. lie at made a test of milk before his audience showing how every rancher may test his own milk and thereby prove whether his cows are paying. The milk tested was pro- cured from a cow owned by Joseph Gallagher and the test showed five and two -fifths per cent of butter fat and shows that the Bench has some good much cows. It was suggested that these gentlemen return at the March meeting and take up the question of dry land farming, which they will in all probabilty do. The basket dinner did not materialize although a few brought in their baskets. But the day was very blustery and cold, and the ladies are to be excused for their failure to come. The professors were highly pleased with their. meeting and go away feeling that they have accomplished great good in this new com- munity. A few copies of the third annual report of the Mon- tana Farmers Institutes were left at this office for free distribution and anyone desiring a copy can have same by calling here. We would suggest that those who did not get a copy of this report at the meeting, get one of these books and give it their careful attention. Straw Notes I )r.

The Christmas tree Sunday night was a success in every way. the com- mittee worked hard to make the •lit- tle folks happy and their efforts were dui appreciated. Especial mention should be given Chas. 0. Ray . and A. C. Logan, of the committee, who both de voted .their time almost entirely to the work. To Mr. Logan is due the beautiful tree and evergreen branches that adorned the hall. He it was who also represented old Santa so ably. The program consisted of recitations and songs and was as follows: Song - • - - The Moore Scliool Recitation - - Luella Rice Recitation - 'Jack Nihill Recitation - Martha Store]. Song •-• Lurlan Wi throw Recitation Lois Seriglit Recitation - George Logan Recitation - Margaret Reese Recitation Ruby Da v i es Song - Miss Payne's•School Recitation - Edward Barney Recitation - 'Edward Stole! Song - - Lady Stapleton Arrival of Sam a Claus and distribution of presents. Miss Margaret Rice accompanied on the piano. All in all the tree and the program was what the committee labored to make it, the program com- mittee deserving special mention. But had it not been for the liberality of the merchants, it could not have been held. Everyone approached for money, with but one or two excep- tions, donated liberally to the fund, and everything necessary for the trte was purchased in Moore. While the committee were all busy mcin, they took the time to make this -a memor- able event in the lives of the . little ones. Next week we will publish a list of the purchases showing the, aniounts purchased and the amount of cash ex- pended, not having received it in time for this issue.
