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.

Morse's Trainload of Big Hole Bssin Beeves Creates Surprise in Chicago To illustrate how high the mar* ket is, we have only to' mention the sale of 12 loads (320 head) of Mon­ tana hay-fed steers, averaging 12,SO pounds; that sold at 8 cents. These cattle were out of /he “Big Hole” country and had been fattened on the nutritious grass* for Which that particular section of Montana is noted\ A couple of load^ of these cattle could have been’.sorted off and sold- at considerably more money, .which would have looked a little better pn paper, but the sale at (Sc straight {ortrthe entire 12 loads of steers stands as one of the highest, if not the highest, sale ever made for thid class of cattle. These cattle were purchased by Mr. McGoon from J E. Morse of Dillon, Mont., one of the leading stockmen of that section. Mr. Morse owns several large ranches in the Big Hole country and these cattle were from one of his ranches located about 30 miles north of the Idaho line. It toftk she days to drive them from the ranch to the shipping station, Red Rock, Mont. These cattle, in addition to being choice quality, were in excellent condition but did not know the taste of grain. They were grazed on the wild grass of Montana dur­ ing the spring, summer and fall months and were fed through the winter on hay made from the native wild grass— n o t a l f a l f a . Mr. Morse certainly deserves credit for the condition these cattle were in, as well as for the high-grade qual­ ity, and it was hard for the expert judges of livestock at the Union stockyards to realize that the only feed these cattle had the last win­ ter was* wild hay cut on Mr. Morse’s j4 Montana ranch. As one good judge remarked: “If cattle can be made as good as these oS of Wild hay, Montana stockmen certainly ‘have it on’ Middle West cattle feeders, for the difference between the price the Morse cattle bought and the way well ripened eight and ten months’ corn-fed steers are sell­ ing, would not begin to pay Tlellis Trains fffcltfuMed by Rev.

Big thing for the company, of course, big thing for cattleman, too--just, take a photograph of his sterrs, jump into the basket, and, whish! There he is, in Divide, talking with the buyer.” Otto Severson, Armour’s sales­ man, was still incredulous and in­ quired of Dick how he would keep his passengers in the car, traveling at such a high rate of speed. “Humph!

While quarters Were being prepared for him in the bam he was left in the dooryard, ami in less than 10 minutes he proceeded to investigate the interior of the kitchen. He found the oilcloth floor covering rather slippery for his little hoofs, and it was with dif­ ficulty he was prevented from find­ ing the stove rather hot for his pretty nose. For a time, while’ the men were responding to the housekeeper's call for help, dishes shivered for their safety and the coming meal was in peril; but, while he js all in the world a baby mule eoukl be, his aspirations tp become a house pi t. must needs be nipped in the bud.
