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.
Breaking Ground $5.50 per acre. Contracts takenfor Ditching and Grading. For rates apply to H. S. Armitage, Wisdom. Still Some Difference Some three weeks ago Colonel Hathaway put his foot, in it when he tried to run a “whizzer” on T jie B reezrs . We showed him up sunw the following week, just to keep even. Last vvppk he had the supreme gall to make the statement that on that particular occasion this paper printed but H local news items and the preceding week 15. When the hot air artist made that statement he knew he wasn’t telling the truth, and without the slightest hesitancy we call him an unmitigated liar. It is hardly necessary on our part to say more, but we will go farther to prove our assertion, by putting up $25 in cash, providing the rotund glammcr of the Rip Saw will do the same, and if we can't prove he’s a liar we're willing to forfeit our part of the money to him. And if we can, we'll agree to turn the winner’s share over to any charitable institution in the state of Montana. Higher Beef Expected In Chicago a few days ago a rep resentative of one of the largest packing houses is quoted as saying “Forty cents a pound for the choice cut seem a certainty, 45 cents is a probability and even 50 cents a possibility, before spring.\ The foregoing predictions were made in relation to the price of beef, and it is based upon the fact that during the first three days of last week no less than 129,000 head of cattle found their way to Chicago and the other large mark ets, which is as many as received in the same packing center in the en tire corresponding week a year ago, These large shipments were oc casioned by the droughts in Kan sas and neighboring states, which have made feed of ah kinds excep tionally scarce. The stockmen, it is said, figure that this condition will put an im mense amoanr o f money in the }$ads of the packers, for the rea son they wifi be able to boy now when the raisers are at a disadvan* tage,andseti>ewpricesthiswinter wiiea cattle axe scarce in the not be m any burry to market th nr beef this fall, for the longer they arc able to hold off shipping, the better prices they are likely to ob tain. The Dig Hole basin ranchmen who ere fixed to fatten their steers through the winter will undoubted ly reap a rich reward for then trouble in the spring.—BuLie Min er.

TWO STORKS Wisdom and Divide Montana The Ordinary Woman Many a soldier who bravely stood at his post during our civil war, is covered with badges. We would not take one from him, he merits them, but many an “ordinary’’ woman has stood at her post of duty for thirty, fort y, or even half a century, fighting with sickness, poverty and discouragement and with true Spartan courage kept the wolf from the door and saved the lives of a large family of children. The man who saves one life receives a prize for bravery, his picture ap pears in the metropolitan papers, and he wears a medal which says to the world that he was brave. And he was. But the woman who has saved the lives of many is giv en no badge and seldom a word of commendation. These “ordinary” women may not receive a Carnegie badge for bravery, but “He who marks the sparrows fall” will cer tainly reserve a jeweled crown for them in heaven.

Figures in the abstract don’t have much meaning; hence the government announcement that in twenty-facr years 1SS.037 persons have been killed and 1,395,018 per sons injured on the railroads of the United Stales really conveys to ns only a vague impression of care lessness and sacrifice.
