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.

More Lands Withdrawn. As another indication that the gov ernment intends, as rapidly as possi ble to get possession of all the land in northern Montana adjacent to the St. Mary’s and olhor government canal projocts and withdraw it from goneral entry, to bo held for bona fide settlers, says Saturday's Great Falls Tribune, is an order givon out by tho Groat Fulls land office yester day morning to the effect that tho evening beforo, after dosing hours, a tolegrapbic order had been received from tho goneral laud office at Wash ington withdrawing from goneral entry tho followingdosi-ribed lands: Township 28 north, rango 31 to 39 east, inclusive. Township 29 north, range 29 to 38 east, inclusive. Township 30 north, range 27 to 37 east, inclusive. Township 31 north, rango 30 to 36 east, inclusive. Township 32 north, rango 31 to 34 east, inclusive. This land lies along tho Milk river valley for a distance of 95 miles from the Fort Belknap agency ou tho west to Glasgow on tho east. The order is by far tbo most important that has ever been issuod in connection with the local offico and is the result of the reports of the engineers who have been surveying in that section of northern Montana in connection with tho St. Mary’s canal. There is included in the strip, it is estimated, over 1,000,000 acres. Previ ously there was withdrawn over 2,000,000 acres within the same dis trict, so that there is now in tho bands of the government 3,000,000 acres belonging to the Great Falls district, only 1,000,000 of which is subject to even homestead entry. Tho work of the surveying corps is not yet completed within the St. Mary’s canal district and other simi lar projects and therefore it is the opinion of the local officials that more of the northern Montana land will be withdrawn. In yesterday’s withdrawals there are 41 townships and previously there were withdrawn 106 townships. TO LEASE. 320 acres good hay land fenced, in Township 25, Bango 6 West, at $125 for the winter. J.
