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.

ALL MUST WORK TOGETHER There was a large attendance at the meeting of the Moore Com- mercial Club Monday evening. A good many questions of vital interest to the business men of Moore were taken up and dis- cussed, and from the spirited dis- cussions thEit ensued, it was plain to be seen that the Commercial Club had again come to life, as it were. A great deal of good can be done for Moore and vicinity, if all the business men of the town will work together. Team work is what counts. The question of a custom flour mill for Moore was again'taken up; and a committee of three, consjst- ing of W. F. Roeseler, C. M. Clary and S. E. Peterson, was appointed to secure the sentiment of the far- mers with reference to this mat- ter. A committee was also appointed to set a date and arrange for an Old Tyme Dance and entertain- ment. The next meeting of the Club will be held on Monday evening, Nov. 10th, and all club members are urgently requested to be pre- sent. High School Club Meets. The Sans ,§9,40 club of the Moore high school held its regular monthly meeting at Clary's hall, last Saturday night. The business session was followed by a short but excellent musical program and a social how, after which the meeting was adjourned to the Sexton home. The thirty-four high school stu- dents who foregathered there, founa a pleasarit surprise awaiting 'Ahem. The house had been artis- tically and appropriately adorned with Hallowe'en decorations, and subdued lights and soft Music ad- ded to the general effect. Instead of the usual impromptu lunch the guests were seated at table, where they partook of a luncheon served in courses by the Misses Ruby Terry and Qpal Sexton who with John Stewart were the hostesses and 'host of the evening. These young people were assisted by • Mesdames Sexton and Terry. At a late hour the club adjourned from the most delightful and elaborate function in its short history.

Salmon Supply Threatened - The Department of Commerce has taken cognizance of the fact that during the blasting operations of the Canada. Northern Railway large masses of rock were dislodged and fell into one of the tributaries of the Frazer river, blocking the stream, at the time the sockeye salmon were seeking to spawn; and schools offish, estimated to number not less than 1 1 000,000, were intercepted and all of them ultimately died before they were able to deposit their eggs. It is estimated that there will he a shortage in the egg crop this season that will be not leas than 2,000,- 000,000 or 3,000,000,000 and the effect will be felt for several years. The sockeye salmon is very particu- lar in the choice of its spaWning grounds, and always selects for this purpose the streams which are the feeders of lakes. The Department says that in view of the large salmon interests in both Washington and British Columbia. that efforts Will be \put forth to - coitmteract the\afTr as possible. Club Dance:Big Success. One of the most enjoyable dances ever held io Moore was that of last Thursday night when the Moore Dancing club gave their initial dance of the season. Clary's hall was very prettily decorated for the occasion with - -Japanese lanterns arranged abont the room in an attractive man- ner. 4 table had been 'placed in one corner of the hall, where refresh- ments were served during the even- ing. Although not a large crowd was present, all enjoyed themselves to the utmost. Cahalan's Harp orches- tra furnished the best of innate. On the night of December 5th the next club dance will be given, 'when it is expected that the majority of mem- bers. witOtttend.--.. Deaths In Montana.

The splendid impression Montana's exhibit at the International Soils Product exposition at Tulsa, Okla., is creating is indicated by the follow- ing story from a Tulsa newspaper: \The state of Montana, always eager to be represented properly at every big undertaking throughout the United States has co-operated with the International Soils Product exposition to the extent of displaying their agricultural resources in a large exhibit, daintily arranged, and cor- rectly portraying the enormous grain yields of a rapidly growing Montana's booth, which is feet long and 15 feet wide, h been ar- ranged by several of that state's most expert grain decorators, and the mingling of colors corresponding to the rich mass of grains and forage , crops create expressions of astonish- It is preferable to let grain go through the \sweat\ in the stack, instead of Hsking its heating in the bin. Store grain where' it can be kept dry and unmixed, and do not allow it to heat. ---Andrew Boss, University of Minnesota. The Mexican Question. The Administration \ is not at all surprised at the result of the Mexican election, nor by the subsequent events. John Lind, special repre 7 *entative of President Wiltion, made a report to the State department that he had visited Vera Cruz, and had been unable to find any voters, acir- cumstance which appeared to exist throughout the - districts where elec- tions were supposed to beheld. Thei'1'. is more and more talk eacti day in the Capitol that armed intervention must event ually'.take the place of the present policy that has been main- tai Red toward Mexico.

Montana's booth, however, repre ; seats but one of the state's resources. that being the farming industry. Of the , 16,000,000 bushels of wheat raised this year, t lie best is shown at tIn- ikig exposition at Tulsa. All ot her varieties of grain, symbolic of Montana, are there in 'profusimi, oats, Icy, alfalfa, timothy and in- ccciii forage crops, potatoes and vice -tables a d root crops ot a re- , ntarkable nat re. Most of' these pro- ducts are dire from the Montana stai e fair, noted for its artistic ar- ran gement of agricultural resources. Saving &wed. It often happens that, in a field of grain, parts of the field produce grain of a better quality than do other parts. This may be to the condi- tion of the soil, to rust, or to lodging. It will often pay to cut and thresh these best patches by themselves, and keep this seed by itself, from which to separate grain , for sowing. Some farmers prefer to grow *mall patches from select seed under favor- ----- able conditions. These patches can be hand-picked and kept pure and and tree from weeds. Unless very careful methods of selecting seed for these patches are followed better re- sults can not he expected than frem the use of the fanning mill. Grain to be used for seed should In' allowed to fully mature. It is not necessary to harvest grain a little green. It should be carefully shocked and capped to allow the seed to fill. Grain Weld This Season. FOUND NOT GUILTY OF KILLING HORSE Animal Belonging to Joe Hendersou Sup- ' 'Wad to Have Been Struck by Neck Yoke in Hands of Stewart Baker BAKER SUES JOE liNOERSON. Stewart Baker. who was arrested last Thursday at the county seat by State Humane Officer Osborne. charged with killing a horse be- longing to Joe Henderson who lives near Moore, was found not guilty by a jury -at hisitiial last Sat- urday afternoon. It appears that Baker, who had' been employed at the Henderson ranch, had deinanded the sum of $94 said -to he due him for labor an the ranch, but this amount Mr. Henderson refused to pay because of his belief that Baker had killed his horse with .a neck yoke, while in a bad temper. State Humane Officer 0Eborne came over from Great Falls and called at the Henderson ranch Fri- day, but it appears that insuffi- cient evidence could be obtained tto convict Baker of the charge. Baker has now brought suit to re- cover the sum alleged to be due him. Nearer forty millions than twenty- eight million bushels is Montana's wheat crop this year, if the estitnates of the railroads are correct and Mon- fana flouring mills run anywhere near correct says the Helena Record. At a conference here two weeks ago on the matter of grain inspection between state officials and general officials of the railroads the railroad men asserted they would haul out of Montana this year not less than thirty thousand carload of grain. The riilroads keep in close touch with con ions and their figures on the amount of wheat to be hauled out should be reliable. Not less than sixty percent of these :30,000 cars will have a capacity of 80,000 pounds and forty per cent a capacity of 40,000 pounds. This gives a total capacity of 1,920,000,- 000 pounds. Figuring the wheat runs sixty pounds to the bushel makes the amount ,of wheat to be hauled out of the state this year 32,- 000,000 bushels. This is the grain that will be handled in interstate shipments alone, and does not include the grain con- sumed in the statl. According to figures compiled by W. J. Swindle - burst, commissioner of the bureau of labor and industry, there are '23 flour mills now in operation in Montana, with a total yearly capacity of 1,526,- 140 barrels. These mills operate the year round at full capacity. Five bushels of wheat are required to make a barrel of flour so the Montana mills alone grind from five‘ eight million bushels a year. The Trip of the Oregon. Rear -Admiral Charles E. Clark, U. - S. Navy, will sail the good ship Ore- gon at the head of the file -et when the Panama Canal is opened. Ad- miral Clark has been 'selected to lead the parade with his oldship, and the idea has struck a responsive chord t ugh ou t t h 'AtvairaI told Secretary Daniels that he would be proud to accept command Of the old ship once more and take her through the canal. Admiral Clark was 70 years old last August, hut has excellent health and appears to be as vigorous as ever. When he brought the Oregon around in 1898 she steamed' 13,800 miles to reach .Key West from San Francisco. :If the canal had then been in exist- ence the distance wonld have been reduced to 4,500 miles; On Monday night \The Village Postmaster\ was presented by a most capable company at the opera house to a good sized audience. From here the troupe went to Great Falls where they will till a two night's engage- ment at the Grand. Ed Samuell, who has been employ- ed at the cash Grocery store for the past year, resigned his position last Saturday and left on Tuesday morn- ing for Great Falls, where he may lo- cate.
