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.

Winnett, Aug. 26 m - The The unfortunate as:I:lent by max in the history of Montana (continued on g 4) oil development was reached Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, when the Orgeon-Montana com- pany drilling five miles south- west of Winnett, touched the cap rock of the first quadrant sands at 2035 feet, and baled out an immense quantity of heavy oil. Immediately after making - the discovery, tl e well was capped and preparations made to un- derream. It will be drilled in within a couple of days. This well was considered to be the wildest of wildcatting activities. The company has been drilling for nearly three months and has met many ob- stacles. At one time after striking six veins of water within 401 feet, hope of ever dr'lling it in was almost aban- doned. No estimate can be made of the probable production, other than oil men predict it will be enormous, if the large volume of oil baled out is the usual in- dication. It is possible that by Sunday Winnett will have one of the largest gushers in America at her doors. As soon as the news reached Va. I. IS. Green Apples 1 1 . WHY NOT MONTANA, TOO.

The exhibit comprised almost mm every knit of garden truck, small grain, corn, dairy exhiln its and livestock and household fancy work and kitchen pro- ducts. The exhibits might have been more extended had it not been such a busy period for the farm ers. Also the fact that this was the first community fair made some doubt the possibili- ty of its success. However such doubt is now dispelled and much talk is already heard about how much bigger and better the community fair will . tbis cit) a stream of automo- iies speeded to the scene of I • biggest discovery of oil -ver made in montana.
