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.

COWBOY EVENTS TO BE FEATURED State Fair to Have Skilled Punch- ers for Riding Stunts. - The \Wild West\ and bucking . broncho features which will be a part of the Montana State Fair, Sept. 22-27, will bring back mazy mimories to the — pioneer of the days of the early range. J. A. Parsons of Elmo, Mont., who has exhibited at Many of the large fairs throughout the country, will be at Helena this fall with many new and thrilling acts. These will include all kinds of daring rough riding; the skillful rop- ing of ferocious outlaw horses; mirth provoking potato races; nerve tingling chariot races; a rough and tumble pushball game with eight horses and riders; the riding of buck- ing steers and a• realistic duel on unmanageable ponies. Another cowboy event that, is bound to be a thriller is the rough riders' relay race to which all of the best riders of the state will bring their fastest motints. This race in' a distinct novelty and should prove one of the most unique races ever pulled off within the confines of the State Fair grounds. Many people think that the day of the cowboy is passing away, by4 as long as the cattle can crop the herb- age from the great slopes he on hand for the roundup. The rue big \Roundup\ for all Montana will be the Fair Week, when folkst will come from near and far, with half rates on all railrdads, and where \ the products of the largest state in the Northwest will be assembled in artis- tic display. The _vaudeville attractions at the Montana State Fair include many stars. This galaxy of talent comes straight from the Orphemn Circuit, a vaude- ville circuit which tolerates nothing of an inferior nature, and which is looked up to in the East as employing only ' the premier artists. See America First / \See America First\ is•a slogan often heard these days, but few people really appreciate Its full meaning. In Mon- tana alone are many beautiful and at- tractive scenic spots equal in grandeur to any of the much -famed portions of Europe, according to world -traveling tourists. In Glacier Park, and in the vicinity of Kalispell and Flathead lake, one,..will find some of the most beautiful scenery in rugged mountain peaks, charming lakes, trout streams, with great forests, that Could be . de- sired. Excellent hotel accommoda- tions and facilities for handling the tourist traveler at reasobable rates are also proOded. Before many years Montana will become the greatiplay- ground for the summer tourist. Siarprise Their Pastor Last Friday evening the Ladies' Aid of the Methodist church tendered a suriiriskupon their pastor, Rev. J. H. Durand. Mr. Durand had been play- ing upon a musical instrument pre- paratory to going to band practice, when the ladies arrived in a body, bringing with them a vast assortment df edibles. Finally the band boys ar- rived and proceeded to serenade the pastor. A most enjoyable evening was spent by all. STATE BANK INSTALLS SAFETY DEPOSIT BOXES The State Bank of Moore has just installed a section of steel safety d6 - posit boxes in the vault. There are 48 in number and each one has ample room to accommodate a large number of papers and other valuables. Each compartment is supplied with two keys for every depositor, while the bank retains a master key, making it necessary to use both the master key and the , customer's key in order to unlock the boxes. This is a great im- provement over the former method and Insures the absolute safety ot all val- uables. Mrs. Patrick Nihill and children, Mrs. H. G. Berges and children, of Stanford, and Thomas Nihill departed yesterday morning for Long Beach, Calif., where they will spend the win- ter. Mr. Nihill will , join them about the first of Neireatilrr — then — th threshing and other work on his farms upar Moore 4s completed. They expect to remain in California until next June.. 1 JURY IN M.'LAUGHLIN CASE • and NI Mexican Drnands Helena's Resignation , 4 c G a o n v eartirrs .John are i a i t nd a standstill estde tl ' Wilson's personal representative, sent COULD‘, ttnorbMnel.e*nict o * e o i n n di a t n i 0 n e s t f o p r r t e v t a o i l l a n d) tr i s s t s t t h i l e l on the ground aiding in the protection . • .

In dis- cussing fall seeding, Mr. Peteson cau- tioned farmers against sowing seed of poor quality or with foul weea seed in it, maintaining that the , additional cost of securing good clean seed, with plump kernels, was but very little when compared with the returns re- ceived from the croprgrown. 0' S.. • • • • • • • • • • A FEW SPECIALS For the Working Man Shirts, all sizes Socks, 10c per pair, 3 pairs for Gloves, canvas, 10c,\ A dandy Muleskin Glove at A good Buckskin, reg. $1.00 seller, Guaranteed Buck, sells world over for 1.50 at $1.40 Union suits, $2.00 value, at - - - $1,75 Uneerwear, heavy, guaranteed 2 years at $7.56 Extra Good Corduroy Trousers at - $3.00 In Woolen Goods I have the best that money can buy.

When school opens in September there is a pleaeant excitement that begins days 'before, especially if a new teacher has been engaged. There is much speculation on the part of the boys and girls as to the appear- ance and methods of the nevi ruler, and most children are early at school on the opening day, impelled partly by curiosity to see and \size up\ the new teacher and partly in order to get the choice seat, this choice being determined by each boy and girl ac- cording to the things they have most In mind. Sometimes a boy wishes a seat near the window where he may see out on occasion, and sometimes °tie with a mischevious turn of mind pre- fers To sit Where the teacher cannot 14,ve an unobstructed view of his desk. of citizens' of the United. States, whom the president has warned to leave Mexico. The , resignation of General Huerta from the position of pro- visional president has been demand- ed by four powers: United States, Japan, Great 'Britain and France. President Wilson's propositions have all been rejected and so far the Mexi- can dictator and his associatea l seem to have I the better of the situation. Though Special Envoy Lind has but one hand, he seems to be handling matters nicely with it 'and ere long Huerta may be eating out of it. REDUCED RATES FOR STATE FAIR •_ Then, too, there is an excitement on the first day of school with res- pect to the new pupils who have come Into the neighborhood and who are in the school for the first time. Young folks are democratic and it does not take long for new comers to lose their shyness and to enter into the inti- macy of school life and join in the plays. Sometimes we find in a new boy all the things we desire, and straightway we make hi\ our friend, and often these schoolboy friendships last thru life. Sometimes, also, the new pupils, if they happen to come from a distance, bring new plays with them, and are doubly welcome On that account. Boys and girls, as is natural, think mom about these things than they do about their lessons; but they very soon come under the school discipline and work and play become nicely ad- justed. Railroads 6 v Rgund Trip fur • The fact that 1 , 11 railroads in the state ace reducing their fares to half for these who wish to .go to Helena for the Fair -week, from - Sept. 22 to 27, shoutd make *the crowd a record breaker this year. Every effort has been made that the State Fair will be bigger and better than ever. New buildings, Increased attractions, innovations in racing and outdoor performances. and a premium list larger than last year, will surely bring a larger crowd and create great- er interest in the exhibits than has ever happened with a previous fair. Faciiities for handlitlithe crowds in Helena have been greatlY improved, The beautiful new Placer hotel has been completed, the Helena hotel has been remodeled, and the other well known hostelries of th - e'-Capittil City have been substantially- improved. Res- ervation of room n in private houses may be made by writing to the secre- tary of the Helena Cpmotercial club.

MONTANA ELEVATOR CO. MAY BUILD AT GRASSRANGE C. R. McClave, of the Montana El- evator company, came down Il'om Lewistown Tuesday afternoon and on the following day Mk a spin in his auto to get sonie idea of the a- mount of grain to be harvested in this locality. He did not have to go far to satisfy himself that there was enough to peep two elevators busy. This company may conclude to erect an elevator right away. In any e- vent they will be in the market for next season's crop, even ,should they pass the proposition this year. MA McClave said the amount of grain far exceeded his expectations, even in the brief time spent here. Grain will come to the Grass Range elevator's from a distance of 2 5 miles. ---Grass Range Review, Sr-- L. Dotson, Manager of the Farmers' Elevators in this territory, was here Monday looking over the new . elevator that is going up. Mr. Dotson Is the father of E. L. 'Dotson, of Straw. ---Buffalo Review. W. B. Shiells began cutting their first crop of alfalfa on July 9th. It yielded better than 2 tons per acre. In just one month iitid nine days they started cutting the second crop which is over knee high and yielding about one and one-half tons to the acre. This furnishes indisputable proof that the Montana dry land can beat the Mississippi valley states in raising both quality and quantity of fq.c1 for cows, hogs, horses and sheep. —Buffalo Review.
