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.

Billings, Mout., Juuo 130—On Re­ count of the rains that have prevailed all over eastern Montana this spring the wool buying season is Into in opening up iu Billings. Tho vital questiou of prices is now tho all ab­ sorbing question and the dispatehos have thrown a ray of eheering light into the ranks of the producers. All eyes are now turned to Boston, from whence oometh all things good or bad for the wool producer. Referring to the question of prices for the coining season, I. D. O’Don­ nell the well known and extensive producer said: “I see nothing unfavorable iu the outlook for the woolgrowor this sea­ son. The decline in wool has boon the result of cheap privet for cotton and in tny judgment cheap cotton is not going to interfere with tho wool market much longer. Cotton is going up on the market and tho result will bo that manufacturers will use moio wool. The largo manufacturers of fabrics cau change thoir looms from c.t'on to wool almost instantaneously and many have already done so. There is no occasion for eithor large or small producers to becoino at all alarmed. In fact, it is just the reverse.” NEW CHURCH SERVICE. M rs.
