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.

Not only did the number of cattle at the markets decrease in 1912 over half a million head as compared with 1911, but the aver­ age weight per head declined eight­ een pounds. This gave three- quarters of a billion pounds less beef for that year, or seven pounds per capita, thirty-five pounds less per family. In the past ten years the number of people in this coun­ try to be fed has increased 16,563,- 000, while the number of cattle in the same length of time decreased 7,468.000. Then, again, in 1911 we slaughtered over eight million calves averaging less than seventy pounds in weight each, which would have produced six hundred pounds of beef each had they been matured This decreased our beef supply four billions of pounds per year or 200 pounds per family. Swift & Co would like to see legis­ lation to prevent the slaughter of calves, but until that time conies they advise the people to eat more mutton. “This meat ranks next to begf in strength building quali­ ties,1*' they say, \at the same time it is a light meat food, delicate in flavor and the easiest of all to di­ gest.\ That it is the cheapest to buy is evidenced by comparison At the wholesale prices in Chicago, one dollar will buy fifteen pounds of mutton loin and only five and onc- half pounds of beef ribs, fourteen pounds of mutton hind-puarter and only eight and one-half pounds of beef round; twenty pounds of mutton fore-quarter and only ten pounds of beef chuck. The big packing company then concludes that “If the housewife could be brought to read the wholesale mar­ ket prices of dressed beef, mutton and lamb, as quoted in the produce column of the daily papers, and make a corresponding adaption of her cuisine, the consequent consum­ ers’ demand would keep meat pric­ es much more uniform than under the present habit of blindly pur­ chasing beef steak and roast beef.” The common American practice of calling a butcher by 'phone to order a quarter's worth of beef steak undoubtedly has a great deal to do with the prohibitive price of beef on the block today, but the very apparent shortage in the sup­ ply as compared with the growth of mouths to be fed is what is soar­ ing prices of food products in this country and doubling the earning power of land. Population is doubling upon the land and we are slow to adjust our mannrr of liv­ ing to the increased density. Effi­ cient engineering in household man­ agement has become absolutely necessary in every fam ilyestab- lishment in the land.—N. W. Stockman and Farmer.

The Big Hole Stockmen's Assoc­ iation, which for the present is a temporary organization, was form­ ed at a meeting held in Wisdom last Saturday night, when the fol­ lowing, officers were elected pro tern; President, J. E. Shaw, vice president, C. E. Miller, secretary and treasurer, C. H Strowbridge. A permanent organization will be effected later, probably at Jackson That the Big Hole basin is in need of an association of this kind goes without saving, but until re­ cently no definite steps had been taken in this direction The ben^ fits accruing from such an organi­ zation are obvious to all who have at heart the welfare and future progress of this section. Its neces­ sity was discussed at a good roads meeting held se veral weeks ago and the good seed sown then has evid­ ently taken root, The association will also tike on the nature of a commercial club— in itself a most important factor if the basin is to thrive as it ought. The prime factors in effecting this organization were the proposed road over the Bitter Root range and the contemplated stockyards at Divide, our business men and ranchers realizing that the success­ ful outcome of these projects de­ pended to a large extent upon con­ certed action. And it it is only in this manner that they can be ac­ complished. While we have had individual work of merit done by such men as Bob Jones—to whom must be given a large share of the credit if the stockyards are put in at Divide—yet we needed united action, and only through organiza­ tio n a l this nature can we obtain it. A remmittee consisting of J. B. Shaw, E. N. Jones, C- E. Miller, and C. H. Strowbridge, was named to attend the Railroad Commis- seoonl. bearm gat Dmdc last the qoe§- at that point wa* beamed.

Ten new members from that section were obtained by the association This paper believes that one of the next undertakings of the or­ ganization should be a road from Squaw Creek to Tucker’s, through the old Toomey ranch, thus cut­ ting out the road over Chalk Bluffs and giving us a water grade all the way to Divide Mr Jones, we un­ derstand, has agreed to deed the county a right of way through the property. Supervisor White’s Idea The advisability of building the Ihg Hole road up Camp creek for five miles before turning it over the Big Hole mountain, so that it will serve as a part of the proposed road over the Idaho divide into Salmon City, is advocated by W W. White, supervisor of the Bitter Root National forest, who was in Hamilton yesterday. Mr White spent the day spreading this idea and found that it was favorably received by those who have been boosting the Big Hole road. Mr. White said he thought it would be entirely feasible to con­ struct the Big Hole road up Camp creek for four or five miles, and that this would leave but one or two miles of highway to be built in order to connect with the old Gi!> bonsviile road leading to Salmon City. Thus several miles of the highway would serve for the doub­ le purpose pf a road into the Big Hola and a road into Idaho. The cost of maintenance of this dis­ tance would of course be less than the expense of maintaining two separate roads, and the increased travel would be a factor in keeping it in goodfc condition. Mr. White said there is absolutely s o doubt in his mind that the Big Hole road will be bmlt t f e year, and he Good Price jGus Swanson For Mutton A Benedict M. D.

It .vas rather a risky un­ dertaking, but Mr Jardine is of a progressive temix'rament and he made up his mind that even though the industry should be a complete failure in that section it was worth the experiment and he has been justly repaid for all his efforts The mutton sheep brought in last Monday were viewed by many stockmen and said to be one of the finest bunches ever shipped from the local stock yards, and the agent who received them for the Mahon­ ey Brothers, of Wallace, Idaho, was more than satisfied with the stuff and stated that they were far better than he sxjxa ted and one of the best shipments of mutton he hail ever had While several of the enterprising ranchmen of the Big Hole basin' have met with splendid success in raising sheep in that section Mr Jardine is the first and only man to attempt to fatten mutton for the market, and while it was only an experiment, there will no doubt be a large number of Big Hole bas­ in ranchers to profit by his splen­ did discovery. In talking with an Examiner man yesterday Mr Jar­ dine had the following to say of his recent successful undertaking “Having been a resident of the Big Hole basin for a number of years and having successfully fat­ tened beef for the market, I could see no reasons why sheep could not be handled the same way and I de­ termined to, at least, give it a fair tryout The Big Hole basin is famed for the fattening qualities of its native wild hay for cattle and I was of the belief that it would have the same effect on sheep, \Last November 1 purchased a I _____ _ _________________ single band and took them to my The pnce paid me was $- rt0 They ranch at Jackson I handled the COS|. me ^ -y jast [a|] delivered in sheep exactly as I handled cattle the IJlg HoU. basin> so vou C&H and did not even hire a herder, make g fgir cstimatc of mv profit.

I fed them on an av­ erage of four pounds of wild hay each day, as this seemed all the feed they required.
