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.

As the years advance and the little town grows from a cattle vamp to an up-to-date town, so we discard the old-time appurtenances of daily life in the backwoods and taste ot modern aids and conveni­ ences.

Strow­ bridge's 240 odd pounds stood him i 4 in good stead Tuesday of this week, *when he was taking a bunch of haydiggers out to the railroad. There were six of them in the car, and being liberally supplied with bottles of whisky, they got a glori­ ous jag on—so much so, that when one of the tires punctured this side of Ralston’s, the jagged ones got out and indulged in a free for all by the road side. In trying to dis­ entangle the combatants, Mr. S. was treated to a corkscrew punch in the neck by one of the more dar- ^ing of the scrappers. Needless to v '&ay, he retaliated with interest, 1 and by the time he was through with the obstreperous one. the dat- ; ter resembled an overripe pumpkin | and the rest of the journey was r fightless.

For our less fortunate brethren in the corn states, where the worst drought in twenty years has left its baneful effects, we have nothing but sympathy. Their extremity is proving our opportunity and our ranchers will profit accordingly next spring. The basin is again a monster stackyard, its thousands stantial growth of tons of hay greeting the eyes from east to west and from north to south. Wc live in a bountiful country, of high altitude and long winters 'tis true, but the air is dry and clear, the climate exhilarating and the water like nectar. We are really just beginning to realize what a fine place the Big Hole is.

As the years go by they strength­ en the reputation of the basin as one of the most desirable sections of the West in which to make a home. Our future looks bright, and the cn^ of another year will see many improvements. Not alone to the hay crop and beef steers do we look for increased future prosperity— not to them alone do we look to make this sec­ tion the pride of Montana.
