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.

Boulder creek, a stream of secondary volume in Mon­ tana, forms the eastern boundary to the city limits. On the head of thh stream some sixty miles distant, tin Boulder mines aresit uated, and alony either side for this distance is seei as fine land as can be found in th< state. About one mile east of th< city, and on the other side of the Yel­ lowstone. opposite the mouth of tin* Boulder, empties a second stream ol more than average volume, called Big Timber. The valley opens and closes along this stream, giving to the farm­ er soil equal; for productive purposes, to any in Montana. The much cov­ eted and desirable land hitherto be­ longing to the Crow tripe of Indians, and but recently thrown opcn lo the public, will .afford jiqipes, for, many settlers., W ater is easily àccessable from the Yellowstone arid along the streams, in^abundant^ q u antities for irrigating purposes; - A stone > quarry adjoins, ,where./the stone is takcn;.froim, for.those cut stone handsome buildings which so numer­ ously adorn the town. : I t is a master of tim e only, when the necessity/ for a spur, to this quarry will be recog­ nized by the. Northern Pacific over whose road it will materially enlarge the volume of traffic. These natural advantages, side dished by mail joutes affording lucrative employment for a continuous line of coaches to and from , the Boulder camp, also north­ ward by way, of the pròspérous little town of Melville, toward the Mussel­ shell, country, I m ight farther add. seasoned by the fat orders\tor\stip- surrounding stock plies from the ranches, of which this place is the control supplies depot, o rcourse, the continuance ofcstocfk* -raising 'un’dei the present not permanent, but when the farm e r-in addition to the cultivation of his land, engages In the live stock business—Denver.

T h e ’ proprietors,can be h it foi a morning’s morning, but their bar tenders/ who are neat and -tidy, all wear that'--Be­ nevolent appearance which invites alike tlie weary to 'a vacant chair, ànd the thirsty to ta glass of water and a toothpick. There are two lum­ ber yards both of which carry a heavy !fupplv of building material. Indeed, the activity of the professional indi­ vidual and firms, whose services are more or less in demand together with the mechanical industries under:suc­ cessful operation give to the city ah atmosphere of prosperity. The resi­ lient population, the Jadies especially, are like spring among tlie roses, re­ dolent with beauty and , freshness. The mysteries of the social circle is a blank page to the writer, but as -oiitid is impressed'on the wax, and ¡•(.produced by thé phonograph, why not reflection of influences be trans­ mitted. If so, the pleasant counte­ nances and affable demeanor of one of the attaches of a business hoiisc here indexes the entire volume of mltured refinement. This year will be an im p o rtant one to the city, perhaps much more so than any for years to come.. Various improvements arc needed, and the people will be glad to see it attended ‘o. but a t,th e same time, they will not want to be burdened with un-' necessary taxation, or bonded into lebt beyond recovery. A noticeable Teature with all the new structures Tor business purposes is th a t they are commodious and substantially built, more for room and convenience than for architectural design. In 1‘act the general make up of the city will go far to impress the visitor, in regard to a future resident location in Montana.
