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.

Out: of the ashes, so to speak, of the recent \Midland .Lumber Co. fire will arise a fine brick building, larger and far.more up-to-date than the one destroyed. 7 This was determined upon when, at a special meeting of the city coun­ cil Monday, a permit was granted them—to- construct such a building, which wiIlAbe in strict conformity to the present fire ordinance. This ordi­ nance requires that.all'structures with­ in certain limits shall be of'brick, stone or concrete. ' Before the fire’ had fully died out, General Supt. Lowry, of .Glendive, had a force of men cleaning away the debris. Large quantities of barb wire, tools and other articles not entirely destroyed were piled up in salvage heaps. • A temporary frame building yyas erected in which Manager Raymond and his assistants are/ doing a rushing business.‘Fortunately they had a large reserve s.tock of - doors, paper, roofing, as well as hardware,,in the warehouse across -the tracks, and . are taking care ’oftheir trade in good shape under the circumstancesr;—While-doing business under difficulties, they are handling lumber orders as they come in.' They have quite a stock on hand now arid new cars will continue to come right along. n B ad Day for “Dry Yesterday was the’ day fdr the con­ vention of the District Sunday School association at Ekalaka, but Rev. R. D . Osterhout, general secretary, upon his arrival here concluded that, .on account of the recent heavy rains/which have made the roads almost impassable, it would be best to postpone the meeting. It is probable that another date will be- set for the convention in the near future. Successor T o T H E FÀLLONITE N U M B E R /52 I toy American ProM Asaoct PRESIDENTW0WR0WMMLS0S. W ill Lead’the Déniocfktic jiirty to Victory Next November. Arrangements are well under way for starting a brick and tile plant a,t Baker, to be controlled ..by local capital. It is a little too soon ;now to predict a probable date when the industry will be under way, but it is the hope of those back of the enterprise to have brick on-the-market\ the-present- season. It has long been recognized by experts that the clay which was burned into scoriae ages ago., during the burning of the coal veins,, would make an excellent brick. ■. And, now;, that we have natural gas, the very cheapest and best of fuel, it would seem that the last obstacle is removed to prevent the building bf a great enterprise in the -manufacture of various clay; products at this point. Wlfen we consider the pressing demand for building material, the increasing need of sewer pipe and paving brick in this and tributary territory, it is easy to-conceive the importance, of an in­ dustry of this kind, which would;.employ many people and would bring in to the community thousands 1 of dollars annually That the enterprise is entirely practical and that this story is .............................. ¡relay” ' ‘ not a dream inspired by a “pipe of relay” we quote verbatim a letter received by W. O. Mieir, who recently sent two barrels of clay to Wisconsin. \ ’ WISCONSIN RED PRESSED BRICK COMPANY. Menopionie, Wis., June 12, 1916. W. O. Mieir, o Baker, Montana. Dear Sir:— - I have made the two barrels of clay you sent me into brick, both smooth and Mat Face, and it makes the finest brick I have ever seen, but there should be some .kind of Grit to mix with it for a flux, as they would have to be dried two or three days under cover as they check in. the wind., But after you’got to making brick you could take the waste from the kilns and grind it up and mix it with the clay and it would stop that. The dry sliale is very fine clay for anything and I think the other is/abqut as good. It may be better to work as itrdoesmot check as easily as the dry but the dry is the best. Therer<are many ways to sjtqp'brick from checking, such as sand burned clay and a weaker day \and weathering by. throwing down a lot of-it and letting it lay a few. days.' . 1 -will ¡get them in the next kiln arid send them to you. I am sorry that I did \riot ¡get it sooner as I could have put them ih the down draft kiln and that would show up the colors. It is very fine material and. you can not beat it if we can dry them slow eriough. 7 . . Yours truly (Signed) J. D. PRATT. We wish to add there are various.-varieties of clays and shales exposed and workable in this vicinity. \We have the clays for most all varieties of clay products. All we need do is to develop this enterprise. . ¡Let the good work go oil.

When a man steps ¡-off the, .Mil­ waukee ¿at.

Silvemale, one of Baker’s .most progressive business men, has let a contract for a new blacksmith shop on_ Montana avenue, and will have the building he now occupies remodeled for a bakery and confectionery. This is considered a fine business comer for such an establishment, being tributary to the south side residence action. J. A. Bronson and S. Siegrist, of Barberton, Ohio, will lease the build­ ing, Which will be ready about July 15th. They are both experienced in the bakery business. Sheriff Jones.,and Under Sheriff Frank' Evans’ have been hot on the trail of-horse;thieves for several weeks. Their effort» have'been rewarded in' * \•* ,* , o the-, capture., of .Vyilliam.McCracken, said to be an outlaw and a dangerous man. Two years‘ ago McCracken gave the officers of Montana and Wyoming a ' merry v chase, entertaining them at times with a gun.-fight.about his'.aibin.’ Two informations have thus far been filed against him, charging the theft of several head of horses from Robert Ormesher and Charles John­ stone. His hearing was held.; before Judge O ’Hern Monday and bonds' in each case fixed at $2500.- He-was taken to Miles City for safe keeping by Under Sheriff Frank.Evans. Geo. Earr óf Miles City has. been retained £» .McCracken's- attorney. “ Sheriff Jones and Stock Inspector Robinson also trailed and captured a young horse-thief named Marion Burke last week. - Sheriff Jones .has been working nightand day, to get track, of these horse-thieves.
