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.

O Larson was grant ed permission to leavo state, for a period not exceeding sixty days. Board then adjourned special meet­ ing sine die. A. C. W arner , Clerk. Another Montana Shipment. Strike At Pondera. The sheep sheares at Pondera evi dently do not like the idea of paying road and poor taxes. Assessor T. O Larson was over there the first of the week and collected a lilllo over $90 from them when they immediately struck for a raise in wages. They had been receiving oight cents per bead and demanded ton cents. After considerable wrangling this increase was agreed to by the sheopmen who wore anxious to finish shearing as tbo season is gotting late, and it was im­ possible to hunt up a now crew at this time. Protection on Wool. At the recent meeting of the wool- growers hold in Groat Falls, Senator Paris Gibson made tbo following remarks: ... “I hare tho honor of being ono of the representatives of Montana in the senate of tho United Statos, and as long as I hold that position I will, so far as I am able, by my vote and by whatever small influence my position may give me, stan 1 up forever for the protection of the woolgrowing indus­ try. I was olected to the United States senate as a democrat. I am a democrat, but I am in favor of a pro­ tective tariff upon wools, “Tho advances and improving con­ ditions havo brought about a vast change in tho manufacturing indus­ tries of tho land in recent years, but the woolgrowing industry needs pro­ tection today bocauso it stands just where it stood thirty years ago. Tbo wagos of meu employed by tho flock- masters of Montana today are no loss than those paid in the groat wool- producing regions of the country 30 years ago. The sheepman of Argen­ tina is at no greater expense today than he was 30 years ago, and tho woolgrower of Australia is as well able to compete with tho sheepman of Montana as ho has ever been in the pastwThoro has been no material change in any of tho conditions af­ fecting the wool industry, and if it was necessary to protoct-it 30 years ago tho same protection is needed today. While I would advocate freo trade so far as the manufacturing interests of the country are concerned I must advocate protection for the great woolgrowing industry of the plains.” Emma Bell Found Qullty. Auothor northern Montana ship­ ment o f beef was sold on the Chicago market this week, and the price they brought went 75 cents a hundred over last year. The cattle sold were haudled by Rosenbaum Bros. & Co., and belouged to the Bear Paw Pool. Tho ship­ ment amounted to twenty eight cars and were loaded at Chinook Wednes­ day last, going on the Chicago mar­ ket yestorday and bringing $5 50 a hundred, the price for corresponding shipments of last season being $4.75. Tho shipment of tho outfit was made two weeks earlier this season than last and one trainload will bo shipped every two woeks until tho stock of tho outfit shall havo been placod on tho market. * The Boar Paw Pool, which is ono of tho best known caltlo outfits in the country, formerly ran a largo amount of \Bho stock” on its ranges. Cows were shipped in as much as steers and there was a regular calf roundup in the spring, the cowboys boing occupied the bettor part of tho ontire year. For tho last throo years a now pol­ icy has been pursued. Instead of shipping more cows, the pool has beou selling them out entirely and (looping only steers. All the “she stock” found this yoar will bo gath­ ered up and shippod out, and houce- forth only steers will bo ruu on the ranges. It is claimed that this will be more profitable as tho country is becoming more and more settlod and tho best watering places fenced, and tho cows will not do well with their calves.

The shortage of the supply of cat­ tle in tho Chicago markol for tbo month of July promises to bo most phenomena!, according to the Chicago Live Stock World. For tbo first 23 days in July tho docreaso in receipts compared with tho samo period lust year is, in round figures, 59,807 cattle? G7,389 hogs and 12,000 sheop, a total docreaso of 4,199 curlouds of stock, will probably bo ono of the greatest July shortages evor kuown in tho Chicago markot, unless tho run for the remaining few days should bo unusually heavy. Tho top sale of beef cattloforthe first four duys of last week was $8.70 a hundred, just $2.50 more than tho top price recoivod for tho same poriod a ycar'ago. Tho bulk of tho sales for that poriod last week, howover, was at $0.25 to $7.50, against $5.00 and c5.75 a year ago, an ineroaso of from 31.25 to $1.75 a hundred.

Tuesday Thursday Saturday Tuesday Thursday Saturday State Land Leased. Mrs. Emma Bell, tho woman whoso home is near Fort Benton lake, and who was arrested by officers of Cas­ cade county a short time ago for cat­ tle stealing, was found guilty of grand larceny Tuesday evening by the jury trying her at Fort B,enton and she promptly fainted away and bad to bo carried to tho home of tho jailor for tho night. The information in Cas­ cade county against the woman will be dismissed. Tho cattlo alleged to havo been stolen were calves sold to Byersdorf& Noller, o f Little Chicago, and were claimed to belong to Flowerree, William Sooty and another party. W. G. Downing, of Great Falls, assisted in the prosecution, on behalf of the stock association, and James W. Freeman, of Great FaUs, appeared for the defendant. Rogister T. D. Long of tho stale and office was hero last Tuesday for the purpose of offoring the state land in Teton couuty for sale or lease. No sales wore made, but 13,¡180 acres were leased at an annual rental of $2500. This is at tho rate of about 20 centsper acre and is a remarkably good price considering tho fact that state ands in tho southeastern portion of tho state has been leased at an aver­ age rental of only about 8 cents per acre. The Flowerree Horse and Cattle company were tho principal leasers, having secured a largo amount of land*in tho northern portion of the county. Othor large leasers wore Fairfield & McCuaig of Dupuyer; Dan Sullivan of Shelby; Joseph Es callier of Shelby and John Towno of Cut Bank. At the meeting of tho county com­ missioners, sitting as a'board of equal­ ization last week, raises were made in assessments as follows; H. F. Guth, solvont credits, S3000; merchandise, $2000.
