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.

An exchange hits the nail on the head squarely in the annexed para­ graph. which we print for the benefit of those concerned: “When the foreign firm friend so­ licit your orders for good just ask him or better, yourself, what would be the result if everyone were to do the same thing. It would ruin the busi­ ness of your town and the ruin of business would mean the ruin of the town. With no town, land values in the surrounding country would greatly depreciate. This is the only legitimate result of such a course if followed to its legitimade conclusion. Think of it, you who are inclined to be penny wise and pound foolish. Every cent of profit made by the mer­ chants of a town who are legitimate dealers, doing an honest business, is returned to the community many times in increased land values, bet­ ter prices for produces, and in taxes paid; besides, the money made by them is spent a t home, In home im­ provement and amongst home people. More than this, he who sends away for his goods has no recourse when inferior goods are palmed off on him, as they frequently arc. These facts arc worthy of careful consideration.” TO KKEl* T H E M OUT. Froclanuitlo i l!y (lie Governor T h a t Y< UX Keep Out Sc ibby Slicep.

I shall thereupon by prochi mation schedule such localities and prohibit the im­ portation from them of any sheep in­ to this state except under such re­ strictions as I, trier consultation with the veterinaiy surgeon; may deem proper; and Whereas, 1 have reason to believe that conditio”? exist which render sheep in any :t< -I all the states'of Or­ egon,' Nevada - alifornia, Washing­ ton, Wyoming .daho and Colorado, and the terriu. ics of Utah'and; New. Mexico, if brought Into this, state, liable to bring with them the disease known as scab, and other loathsome contagious diseases. .. Now, therefore, I, John E. Rick­ ards, governor of the state of Mon­ tana, in obedience to the ‘duty im­ posed upon me by the said statue ard the terms thereof, do hereby sched­ ule the localities hereinbefore named, and I do hereby forbid the importa­ tion into the state of Montana of any sheep whatsoever which have been brought from any portion of said scheduled locations, or any of them,' except upon the certificate of the state veterinarian or his duly author­ ized deputy, that such sheep have been inspected or have been found to be free from scab or any iofectious or contagious disease. And I do hereby warn all corpora­ tions, persons and companies, to give due and full notice to the state veter­ inary surgeon of Montana preceeding the arrival a t the boundary’ line of said state of Montana of all such sheep as come within the provisions of this proclamation. r Provided, however, that nothing In this proclamation shall be so con­ strued as to prohibit the transporta­ tion of any sheep through this state by rail, and which sheep do. not un­ load within said state. ^ In witness whereof I have henMinto set my hand and caused 1 h<- » i of the state of Montana to be a t the city of Helena, the capital of said state, this third day of ’ June, A.
