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.

Alfalfa Is The King Of Crops Experts Unanimously Declare That as Hay This Plant Cannot be Equaled Spokane, Wash., Sept.,-—\M a l­ ta will make two blades of grass grow in the Inland Empire where but one now grows,\ states Profes­ sor Perry G. Holden, the famouslo- wa agriculturist, who will head a four-weeks alfalfa campain in this section commencing September 24v In a communication to the Spo­ kane Camber of Commerce, Profes­ sor Holden speaks enthusiastically of his coming work in the Inland Empire, adding: \It is very difficult for us to under­ take a new thing or grow a new crop, even though we know from experience of others that it is pro­ fitable. We are inclined to go a- long in the old way We need gagg­ ing to awaken us to the great opp­ ortunities around us. We see others growing alfalfa and making money But we fail to profit by experience. “A. P Grout, of Winchester,Ill­ inois, who has grown alfalfa for twenty years, says 'Alfalfa will pay 6 per cent intrest on $1,000 an acre land, it is equal to wheat bran as stock feed, one acre of alfalfa is equal to six acres of timothy, where corn will net $15.80 per acre, alfalfa will net $50 per acre. Every farmer should grow some alfalfa ' \Joseph Wing, of Ohio 'Alfalfa will pay any farmer 6 per cent or $500 an acre land.- * “Remember alfalfa can be grown on the Inland Empire farms. It is no more difficult to grow than clo­ ver and is more hardy when once established. It adapts itself to all kinds and conditions of soil and cli­ mate. Alfalfa produces three and sometimes four crops in the corn Alfalfa can be fed to all kinds of farm animals and has no superior as a hog pasture. \As hay alfalfa has no equal, it is rich in protein, the very thing in which our corn and most other crops are deficient. It, therefore, balances up the ration and will save the purchase of high priced foods. No piece of ground on the farm will bring greater profits than the five or ten acres put into alfalfa, provided the work is done properly and a good stand secured.\ C. B. Kegley Palous, Wash., mast­ er of the state grange, told mem­ bers of the chamber of commerce committee in charge of the Holden campaign that the farmers would welcome Professor Holden and his party, and that nowhere would the Iowa com alfalfa expert find more openminded farmers than in the Inland Empire. \I consider this campaign one of the most important ever under­ taken in the Pacific Northwest,\ stated Mf. Kegley, \and I am cer­ tain the vast majority of farmers will welcome advise from an expert of such well proven qualifications as Professor Holden. The camp­ aign means not only more alfalfa, more bogs and more dairying, but it means also the building up and rejuvenating o f soil long impoverish­ ed by the one crop system, as alfal­ fa gives back to the soil eight or tea times as much nitrogen a s was there before.

September—-2 1913- (Special): The outdoor free attractions of Montana State Fair will be featured this year by the world's youngest aviatrice, Miss Katherine Stinson, known as the ‘school girl flier' and one of the few iron nerved girls who have taken up flying as a profession. Mont­ ana has seen many aviators, some of them Montana boys who have learned and perfected the a rt of fly­ ing heavfer-than-air machines, but but never has there been a woman who has propelled her own machine in this State. Katherine Stinson flies in a $5,000 Wright bi-plane and will bring a special machine for the Montana altitude, her contract positively assuring two daily flights. She is registered as an International Pilot License flier, number 148, and her age as recorded on the license is twenty, making her the youngest female air navigator in the world. She is dauntless, daring death-defy­ ing, and will soar twice each day over the Fair ground track enclos­ ure, which has been pronounced by air experts as the most ideally lo­ cated aviation field in the west. Besides daily aviation flights the outdoor attractions include the best wild west features ever pulled off in the state, seven platform vaude­ ville acts from the Orpheum Circuit, and three of Montana’s best bands; the Boston and Montana Band of Butte, the Black Eagle Band of Great Falls, and the Gateway City Band of Livingston. These feat­ ures will take place between the races, a t which the best blooded horses in the northwest will run on the safest, fastest, and best mile- track in the west. Jackson Celebration Is A Huge Success Glorious Weather Attracted & Large Crowd to the Little Town up the Valley Where an Enjoyable Day was Spent Picnic atC-D Ranch A delightful picnic was held at the C—D ranch last Sunday, the occasion being the birthday of Mr. Woodworth. An enjoyable time was spent fishing along the banks of the Big Hole river, after which a delicious lunch was served. Be­ sides the honor guest and his wife there were present: Messrs, and Mesdames F.

The people who wero fortunate enough to begin with this company have enjoyed profits that make the gains of railroads and pub­ lic service promoters look like gen­ teel poverty. It is not likely that this dividend represented the sur­ plus of the company by any means for it is now doubling the size of the factory for the purpose of put­ ting out next year 350,000 cars. In case tne demand slackens it will be possible for thiscorccrn to stim­ ulate consumption by still futher re­ ducing the price. A net profit of only $10 a car would yield profits of $3,500,000 a year, or more than 150 per cent. Some money has been lost in the automobile business, but a whole flock new millionaires have been created by the development of the industry. Ranchers Lose Horses Dr Wm J. Butler, state veterin­ arian, and E. D. Nash, his chief assistant, are in the basin to inves­ tigate the cause of the death of several of the Canfield horses. The company has lost seven horses and one colt within the past ten days. The loss is supposed to be occasion­ ed by some kind of poisoning, but the doctors have so far been unable to determine the exact nature of it. Chas. Ralston has alsh lost half a dozen valuable horses recently from a similar cause.

The big steel flume of the Trail Creek Water Co., one of the neat­ est pieces of engineering in the state, was the scene of an enjoy­ able picnic last Sunday afternoon. The affair had been gotten up by the members of the company, who arc about to see the completion of their labors on the immense under­ taking. These energetic young citizens have done something for themselves and the Big Hole basin that will be a lasting monument to their energy and pluck, and the benefits to this section accruing from the irriga­ tion and cultivation of west side bench lands will be inestimable. They have a right to be proud of their achievement The big ditch is rapidly nearing completion and next spring will see a steady stream of water flow­ ing through the giant flume and spreading itself on the rich bench lands that for so many years have been good for nothing but pasture. There is a little water running through the flume now, just enough to prove that the big structure will answer its intended purpose After a delicious outdoor lunch, supplied by the ladies of the party, who were ably assisted in the work of catering to the hungry by our old friend, Shorty Jarrett, one of the best egoks in the basin, the majority of the company betook themselves to the Big Hole battle­ ground, where several pictures of the group were taken It was here that General Gib­ bons, with 17 officers and 138 men of the 7th U. S. Infantry, assisted by some 31) odd citizens, surprised and fought all day, Aug 9, 1877, a superior force of Nex-Perce In­ dians More than one-third of his command were killed and wound­ ed. A monument has been erect­ ed on the scene. A skull, found on the historic ground, was photo­ graphed along with the group On the return to the Trail Creek camp, where a large tent had been erected for the accommodation of the party, the remainder of the lunch was demolished, and the homeward trip begun. It was an enjoyable outing and will long live in memory. Those present were: Messrs, and Me9dames C. E. Farnsworth and children, of Ana­ conda, Robt. H. Jones, Fred Nel­ son, E. M.
