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.

This Is a clean and aear profit of almost $7.00 per head or three 'cents per pound, after allowing Mr. Fleming, the same basis of cost as if he had, no other tnterest* than the 116 hogs in question.\ Is there any (ideation, but that it i•s profitable to raise hogs, in Mont ana, by _feeding them wheat, bar- ley, alfalfa, and other products , grown right at home?
