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.

Numb* Final Sunny To B» Midi Work on That Part of Park-to- Park Road Over Into Idaho Will Soon Begin The Big Hole road is now a cer­ tainty, says the Ravalli Republic­ an. The only thing that remains to be done is to secure a subscrip­ tion of $1,000 from the people of the Bitter Root valley, and this should bo easy A1 Rissman of Darby will circulate a paper to raise this amount, and as the road will cost many thousands of dol­ lars there should be a ready re­ sponse from the citizens of Ravalli county F. E. Bonner of the forest ser­ vice went to Darby today to make the final survey, and when this is completed work will be started. It is estimated that the grade will be five per cent over the Big Hole hill The forest service will give $9,000 toward the road in Ravalli county, the appropriation for this county having recently been increased $4,000, and $5,000 for the road in Beaverhead county Beaverhead county has appropriated $9,000 for the road (you mean $2,500, don't you, Brother Con key ') and Ravalli county $5,000 This is good news to the resi­ dents of the two counties A good road between the Bitter Root val­ ley and the Big Hole country has long been desired It will enable the Big Hole ranchers to purchase their supplies and merchandise in the Bitter Root \'allcy Truck fanners can place their produce in the Big Hole, where only gram and hay are raised, and there will be a large amount of tourist travel over the road. The preliminary survey by En­ gineer Bonner has been approved by Engineer Allen, who is at the head of the forest service surveyors, and it is expected that actual grad­ ing will soon be in progress Judge Barry Writes A T. Barry, who is visiting with relatives at Ronan, writes us that T he B reezes , which he sends to a niece there, didn’t arrive last week nor the week before. “I have been lost without it,” says the genial Al, \and if you dont send it you’ll know about it when I get home.” The papers left this office on time, Judge, and we are satisfied that the Wisdom office sent them out next morning, so we are not blaming anyone in particular, nor do we care to cast any dirty insin­ uations at proven servants of Uncle Sam. We’ll leave that to those whose nature it is to slur and slam and who revel in shying dor- nicks at better men than them­ selves. Mr. Barry, who has our thanks for having our name placed on the Ronan Pioneer’s exchange list, concludes by saying that Mrs. Al is slowly improving.

The following letter was received this week by Robert Jones from a prominent Montana stockman, who is especially interested in the breed- ,ng of good horses We hope all our stockmen subscribers will read it carefully and act upon the sug­ gestion made m the latter part of the communication, concerning the retention of Pn,f C lark al the Ag­ ricultural College The professor is well known to most of us m the basin, having spoken here at a farmers’ institute some three years ago, and it is a well known fact that but for his efforts m securing the passage of Montana's present stallion registration statute, and s^ing to its rigid enforcement, this state would have become the dumping ground for all the cast-off equine males west of the Mississip­ pi 'Montana is naturally the home of good horses nature made her so The climate, soil, forage and water ail conspire to give us .great horses. All we need to do to reap a great revenue from the sale of Montana horses is to use a little horse sense. We need but a little. About all we need to do is to keep out scrub breeding stock. Give us good stock. Keep out the scrubs and nature will do the rest. “The states east of us where hey have rigid stallion registration jaws and rigidly enforce them are full of mfenor stallions that were formerly dumped on to us here in Montana. Prof. R. W. Clark of the Agricultural College at Boze­ man, m 1009 secured the adoption m this state of an excellent stallion registration law that has, since jts enactment, caused many carloads of inferior, scrub stallions shipped here for sale to be shipped out again, and in many instances their owners, the fellows who shipped them m, have been heaxily fined. “They all blame Prof. Clark, for he is the man who enforces that law, and in the eyes of these sttl- hon peddlers dark is not a desir­ able citizen, and they have joined oaooswith certain other selfish, A Tenderfoot Praises The Big Hole Basin Butte Miner Prints an Eloquent Tribute to our Valley by Edward Gilliam of Boston, Head of Famous Publicity Bureau “I have just returned from a trip I motion of getting their product in- of several days through the Big Hole basin country and the experi­ ence has been to me a liberal edu­ cation. You have outlying and tributary to Butte a comparatively! virgin, unscratched valley which [economic transportation facilities will quick­ en into remarkable activity and prosperity STRUCK WITH WEALTH “It seems almost incredible that j our people while taking out nearly a billion dollars in metalliferous values from your world-famed, world-beating Anaconda hill and its environs since Butte was dis­ covered and opened up should have let lie unexploited at your very doors a veritable cattle-growing and agricultural empire like the Big Hole valley. The potentialities of that fertile, abundantly watered basin are so numerous and inviting as to attract the attention of even the wayfaring man who is without so to touch with 1 he market It rt minds me of the backwoods set tions where time is counted of little value that ox teams are still in vogue. value of a railroad to these already considerable cattle raising interests, bringing them practically at their doors instead of taking toilsome days and some­ times weeks to reach their ship ment points, as at present ’ The daily train, bringing the daily mail and the daily paper, with its cattle market quotations, will be a boon to the Big Hole basin cattlemen, enabling them to take advantage of market fluctuations and get their product to market without undue loss of time, wear and tear of mind and body and reduced tonnage re­ sulting from driving cattle long distances to railroad.

BIG HOLE STEERS “Our party stopped just outside of Anaconda—practically within the shadow of your renowned Washoe smelter—and made a pho­ tograph of Big Hole steers browsing and resting in a field on their way to the railroad for shipment to market. It was a pastoral scene, worthy of a painting, one that 1 had been led to believe one need not expect to happen upon in Deer Lodge valley within the crimson zone of your belching arsenic and sulphur. (Let me digress here to ' say that on tins, my first visit to Butte, I was agreeably surprised to see both city and country showing so modi vegetation and verdure.

I saw cattle blockading our road from fence to fence. I saw 150 horses and colts in corral on a single ranch awaiting branding. I saw freighting teams and stage coaches carrying passengers and merchan­ dise into and out of the valley with a primitiveness which seemed out of date and out of place in an age like this and, more particularly, where the evidences of wealth were so abundant and accumulating on every hand. \The scenic beauties of the Big Hole river and valley are features which will attract the tourist and the vacationist when the railroad is ready to take from ingress and egress their present brunt and ter­ ror. Our Mohawk valley and the Berkshire hills of New England, with their landscape forest and road cut fare, will then be fairiy rivaled by your famous Kg Hole rivers, valleys and with their sublime theater of canyoafc rugged mountains, the deep ravines cl which are filled with pore and perennial snow.\ Mr. Gilliam was one of the party which made a insects one of the horses threw its head so that the bridle became en­ tangled. Casper threw the mower out of gear and got off the machine to release the horse just as the brid­ g e came entirely off. He tried to hold the horses by the halter, but could not control them and they started to run, the scythe of the machine striking the man and throwing him over. The collar bone was broken and the right leg terribly cut and mashed Dr, Ryburn was called. Casper was brought to Dillon by M. D. Gist. He has a wife and wee baby here. Mr Casper is a licensed pharma- of Auburn, Neb , and has l>een in Beaverhead county only a short time About a \ ear ago he took up a dry land ranch in the vicinity of Twin Bridges.
