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.

Commissioner Binger Hermann of the general land office,- has issued a circular, direoted to persons intend­ ing, to make, homestead entries on lands temporarily withdrawn for ir- t rigation purposes. In the northern portion of Teton county, and also m 'Choteau county, large tracts of land have been withdrawn and the pro­ posed St. Mary’s canal will be built through- that country if the project is fessible. Ths report as addressed to the register and receivers in the states and territories where land has been withdrawn ami reads: “You are -hereby directed in- ad­ dition .to the instructions eontained in office circular \of September 9, 1902, to call ths especial attention of all persons that have mads, or are intending to make,'homestead entries on ' lands ‘that; have been, or may hereafter be, temporarily withdrawn for irrigation purposes, to the follow- isg statement: ' . “The withdrawal of these lands is principally for the purpose of making surreys and Irrigation investigations in order to determine the feasibility of tbs plans of irrigation and recla mation propossd; only a portion of the lands will be'irrigated even if the project is fessible; it will be im­ possible to decide in advance of careful examination what lands may be watered,! if any; ths mare - fact that surveys are in progress is no indication whatever that the works will be built, and this' fact can not \ * i, *• ,» > determine how much water there may ba available, or what lands can be covered, or whether the cost will be too great to justify' the' under' taking' until - the ' surveys and the irrigation inysstigationa have been completed. \ Attention is sailed to the fact that all ths entries mads upon the lands referred are subject to the following proviso of the aot of August 30,1900: “ ‘That in all patents for land here after taken up under any of the land laws of the United States or.oa entries or claims validated by this act, west of the one hundredth meridian, it shall ba expressed that there is re- asrved-from the lands in said pateat described, a right of way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the I i. v authority of the United States.’ “Under this provision of the lew, should a homestead entry embrace land that is needed in wboleor in part for a dam aite, a naenroir, or a canal, tba land would be taken for auch pur­ poses, and the entryman would hare no claim against tha United States for the taking of auch right of way. : “You will post a copy of this cir­ cular in a conspieious place in your •ffioa and give tha subject matter here­ of such general publicity as may be possible.\ same one year after year, but he doesn’t. He puts off his building operations until the. very last moment, shortly before tho cold’ weather seta in. In 1901 the squirrels and chipmunks started their houses in the latter part of' September. This year, however, they did not start until late in October. Some of the more lazy ones are said to be just completing their nests. The instinct of these little animals is be­ yond the ken of human beings, but it never leads them astray.—Standard. Fine Cattle. The Metzel herd of thoroughbed ■hort-horn cattle that arrived here last week from Monida were divided at Truchot’B residence between the purchasers F. Truchot, W, W. Gamble and Iver Johnson und are uow at the home ranches of the said purchasers. These cattle came from Centennial Valley, Madison county, Montana. A valley laying on the top of a range of mountains seyen thousand feet high, on the stage road to Yellowstone Fark, and the pedigree of the cattle is about as high up as is the altitude of the valley from whence they came. The herd was established twenty-fire years ago by the late Alexander Metzel with thoroughbred cattle, aud asjthere never was anything with the hord but registered short-bora bulls, these cattle are O. K. in every respect and are attracting considerable attention. We sre second to none fn every­ thing in the China line, having more nice China than ever before, at pop­ ular prices. A BARGAIN.

Nature, it is argued, teaches' the lower animals to provida for tbair necessities, and an unvarying rula ia to proportion their provision« to thèir wants. .It has been noticed in the East and the Middle Waet, where they are more numarona than in thin region, that birds baria been unusually late in mi­ grating southward, and this is an indi­ cation that winter will be slow in com­ ing. ■ Squirrels, woodchucks, chip­ munks and rabbits have also been unusually late in “holing up.’’ Every mambar of tha aquirrel family must make, of course, due provision for the winter. He provides a home for •belter and laya in a stock of food to last anti! tha enow leaves tha ground. You would think ba would build his State Auditor J. H. Calderhead and and Deputy Auditor Holmes will spend the remaiader of the week in Columbia Falls ia conference with Charles Emmons, an oil expert, who has been looking over some oil prop­ erty which they own in the vicinity of Kintla lake. It is said that their property has surface indications which promise that it will develop into one of the greatest oil fields in the West. Mr. Calderhead and his partner will not start any development work until spring.—Helena Record. Bring your unframed studies and get them framed at Eastern prices at the Art Studio.
