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.

The team which was tied in one of stalls, broke the halter pole while backing away from Wallace, and the young man was struck on the back of the head by a piece of the pole. It was two hoars before he regained consciouness. He is able to be around again. Since the organization of the Trail ('reek Water company there has been more real effort made to utilize the unquestionably rich bench lands o f the Big Hole basin than ever before, and it is only by the efforts of our sturdy young citizens, undaunted by difficulties seemingly insurmountable, that this magnificent valley can be made to give up its best. One of the most successful of these young ranchers is Herb Ar- mitage, a son of two of the basin’s pioneer settlers, who has spent most of his life here and who likes his surroundings so well that he will undoubtedly spend the re­ mainder of his days in the valley He and his wife have taken up a section of land on the bench west of Wisdom, which will be irrigated from the Trail Creek company’s big ditch. A temporary home has rncnced, but the been built and the young husband \ making a success has started out to make his land taking and doubting Thomases one of the best ranches tn the val-lhave now faded into the back- ley. A large 40-horse power gaso- J ground. That he may continue to line tractor was purchased and is j be successful is the sincere wish of now turning over the soil at from his numerous friends throughout 20 to 25 acres per day. Something like 100 acres have been plowed on his ranch and seeded to timothy, Then some 5 miles of ditch were cut out for the Trail ('reck Water Co For this work, two plows and a large go-devil were used, and the way that engine walked away with the work made the members of that company pat each other on the back and smile for a week Just now Ray Shaw is getting the benefit of the monster on a 40-acre tract of his land, through which a new road is being laid out Herb has an able mec hanic in young Engineer Mast, of Billings, and for a time had the efficient services of Bert Maybee, of Gib­ bons Just now he is minus one engineer, but that doesn't seem to delay the good work much, for Herb can take his turn at the wheel with the rest of them Many thought it a risky under­ taking before the plowing corn- young man is f the big undcr- Thoroughbreds For Sale bs through bred stallions Shires, Pcrcherons and Belgians, from yearlings up, some weigh a ton These animals will be sold at right prices and may be seen at the Wis­ dom livestock C o 's home ranch Thev were brought in by A L Harrison, Ashley, N D Typhoid Patient DJes W L Morris, who formerly was employed on the Ruby ranch; died in Wisdom last Sunday evening from an attack of typhoid fever, Deceased, who was 7s years old, was buried in the Wisdom ceme­ tery Tuesday morning Number 27 Permanent Organization The Big Hole Basin Stockmen's Association which is advertising a h i» horse safe ta he held in Wisdom « i a J#ie M a n d July 1, will com­ plete its permanent cxganization at a meeting to be held i m . Wisdom this Saturday. Circulars are being sent broadcast through the valley, inviting the membership <a>f every stockman and feeder in this section,. While the «ew organization has for ha main object (the best inter­ ests of uur«tock growers, yet its (lower tor good will be felt by the entire valley, jti matters pertaining not only to stefek, bad in the prom- Igataon <i other lmjwirtant inter­ ests, iinuh as the buildup of better roads, the croaiUutn of a commercial club,, the development of our min­ eral wraith by outside capital and the creating of other industries in the basin The numlief ol a&emhers already secured by the association is very encouraging and a large number of others are expected to join soon. The admission fee is f 1,0, a very reasonable amount, considering the many advantages which ars bound to result from membership in such an organization It is only from such a combina­ tion of effort that real good to the Big Hole basin can accrue, and the small sum demanded as an earnest of your sympathy with the under­ taking will undoubtedly be well spent and will tmv a hundredfold harvest Crime to the meeting, end insist on your friend* and neighbor* do* ing (he same.

Of course, things don’t always work smoothly, but stoppages so far have been infrequent, and the young rancher is making it pay.
