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.

Th'e moisture came in' the right time and with a little sunshine now the face of the earth will soon be cloaked in a garment of the beautiful green. ' i. f t 1 .'.; j All the small grain has- been— sown-and-the-greater-portion-is-up but the continued winds and dry weather did not look very promising but the, first of the. week things looked decidedly different, not only to the farmer but to the entire populace of Fallon county. ¿ i . . ; ' . » r V i ‘ .

There were 64 divisions of civilians in the line of march with 200 bands and the march started at 9:30 in the morning and the last division did not pass the reviewing stand until -10 o’clock that evening. More than 20,000 women marched in this- great pageariFarid more thaiTa million'persons-stood by-and- cheered the great spectacle. This was indeed one of the greatest demonstrations ever shown in the history of the United States and should bfe a lesson to those who have been so ardently opposed to preparedness. These patriotic men and women have •set an example to citizens all over the nation. They have txught us a lesson and a valuable one it is.' The nation should be prepared and at last congress has made a move in that, direction by passing the military bill in both houses which calls for'an army of 654,000 men, in both regulars and militia. The bill-calls for a Fed~ eraFforce of 206,,000 men at all times. At last congfess has awakened to the needs and demands of the people and while the army is not as large as if should be it is far from what it was. Besides the defense force the new law provides for 448,000 national guardsmen or 800 for each senator and representative which is to be undef readiness at all times to be called to the front when necessajy. An appro priation of $20,000,000 was made for munition plants. At last the spinsters in the congressional halls have come to themselves and the demands of the greater part of- the populace have been partially granted. f- W ith the threatningv war on all. sides and with little or no army of .navy it was high time to dp something along military preparedness. • TICKETS ON SALE May 20, 24, 27 and 31, to points in Illinois.

W ith the advent of the past week he has enttered upoli a new role and that is the one person which can bring about peace between the countries of the old world who are now locked in'the deadly embrace.of war. ; |! T h e president does not hope to be the one4 agent, to do this=but*he, cherishes an ambition to aid in the great work of effecting a durable peac4.‘ These things he disclosed to a committee from the American Union against. Militarism which waited on him on Monday of last week. j T h e president did not say in so ’many words that he himself hoped to- play the part of the peace leader, but it is enough at this time to know that he views sympathetically with the.only* sane and practical plan for the guaran tee of perfect .harmony among the powers. He could not well do more at this stage of the conflict. His extremely important, if formal, utteranceccs ' before the committee that waited on him revealed that behind his reserve and reticence, befitting at the present hour, the President cherishes an ambition ' to aid in the great work of bringing about peace. It is well. He could nit do less, as at the head of this enlightened neutral nation. He could not do more for humanity if he were to live a thousand years. *. * [HTNGS~HA'V‘E_TA\KE'N—A~SE'R-IOUS—turn—regarding-the—affairs- with Mexico and by the present appearances the United States will have to go down there and teach those people another lesson of re spectability. For some time the Mexican dog has been snapping at the heels of Uncle Sam and the time is ripe for uncle to turn and kick him in the ribs and teach him where his place really is. For the last few weeks raids, across .into the border of this nation have taken place and each time, several lives were lost. The national guard from Texas, Arizona and New • Mexico Has been called out- to protect thé border and the reserve forces* all over the nation • are ready to move. Americans have been warned to leave Mexico. This is beginning to look like serious trouble. It is useless to do any more fencing with the self appointed authori- ties of Mexico. Let the. leaders-of this nation place a standard for the Grea- '*? ser country to adhere to and then be firm. Let us not fool longer with Car- t ranza nor other leaders but showrthem-that-we-rriean-business.— ------------ * r A • i © HE BUTTE MINER HAS EXPOSED a scheme by which the repub licans of the state hoped to bring about a disunion among the demo cratic ranks .in Montana. This seems 'to be* the outcome !of the overwhelming vote which was given President Wilson at the past preferred primary. The scheme that was tried by a number of republicans and-bull, moose papers and was to publish an editorial on \W h o Butchered Bryan.”. T h e copy was prepared” for all the papers and was the same with the excep tion of a few minor changes which were made by the editors of the various publications. It is indeed a rather childish way to bring about disorganization in this manner but every campaign’ brings out many amusing features which sometimes have, the desired results but this matter of republican \canned” editoriajizing to try to cause disruption in the democratic party is a real joke. • Often one hears the remark that Fallon,, county belongs to’either one the othier o i the leading political * parties but .'from all indications and by l u i n n n i i i n i i i i W B The size of this bungalow Is 2.4 feet ■ -wide by.. 34 feet deep, exclusive of Q tlie front piazza.
