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.

OUR COUNTY EXCHANGES Customs Officer Harte, Stationed at Sweet Grass, was in the city yesterday and captured a foreign­ er, who had violated the immigra­ tion laws. He took his prisoner to Great Falls from here where steps will be taken to have him de­ ported. He was a toughlooking individual, and might be wanted on theotherside.—Shelby Promo­ ter. Miss E. D. Burwash, whose dry land farm is 16 miles northeast of town, was shopping here on Mon­ day, and being a printer and a for­ mer employe of the News, favored the office with her presence for a short time.—Shelby News. ' We understand that the First International Bank of Sweet Grass has been appointed the financial agents of the Farmers’ Elevator Co., of Coutts.—Sweet Grass Ad­ vocate. A. J. Thompson, of four miles north of Brady, brought in the first load of winter wheat to be de­ livered at a local elevator. The wheat yielded fairly good and is of excellent quality. Frank Mc­ Cormick, of east of town, enjoys the distintion of having brought in the first spring wheat. McCor­ mick’s wheat was also of fine quali­ ty. Peter Peterson, of Aznoe, brought in the first load of flax, and is well satisfied with the yield and quality.—Brady Whetstone. It took a special train to carry the large crowd that went to Valier last Sunday to witness the ball game between Conrad and Valier. The game resulted in another victory for the Valier team, the score being 2 to 4 in their favor. The home team came so near win­ ning that they issued another chal- enge on the home diamond f o r last Tuesday afternoon. In this game also the Valier aggregation carried off the bacon by a score of 6 to 1.—Conrad Observer, Jos. Houben, one o f the party brought over from Holland this spring, left for his old home today where he will spend the winter. Mr. Houben is one of the satis­ fied settlers here and will do a lot of good advertising for us in his native land. He took with him a trunk full of various samples of produce to show his people.—The Valerian. Dr. H. W. Bateman, county health officer, was a visitor here Saturday evening on his return to Choteau after spending a few*clays in the mountains near Glacier Park. Dr. Bateman stated that the county seat town was feeling a new thrill of life since actual railway building began and that there was an expansion in all commercial lines.—Cut Bank Pioneer Press.

HOLLAND, the Jeweler ..-Mbntatia States Fair Helena, Montana, Sept. 3, 1913, (Special): The outdoor free\ at­ tractions of the Montantf State Fair will be featured this year-, by the world’s youngest a v iatrice, Miss Katherine Stinson, known as the ‘schoolgirl flier’ and one of the few iron nerved girls who have taken up flying as a profession. Montana has seen many aviators, some o f them Montana boys who have learned and perfected the art of flying h e a v ier-than-a i r ma­ chines, but never has there been a woman who has propelled her own machine in this state. Katherine S t i nson flies in a $5,000 Wright bi-plane and will bring a special machine for the Montana altitude, her contract positively assuring two d a i l y flights. She is registered as an International Pilot License flier, No. 148, and her age as recorded on the, license is twenty, making her the youngest female air navi­ gator in the world. She is daunt­ less, daring and death-defying, and will soar twice each day over the fair ground track enclosure, which has been pronounced by air experts as the most ideally located aviation field in the west. Besides dailv aviation flights the outdoor attractions include the best wild west features ever pulled off in the state, seven platform vaudeville acts from the Orpheum Circuit, and three of Montana’s best bands: the Boston and Mon­ tana band of Butte, the Black Eagle band of Great Falls, and the Gateway City band of Living­ ston. These features will take place between the races, at which the best blooded horses in the Northwest will run on the safest, fastest, and best mile-track in the west. Power Line. Completed No matter what may be the de­ cision of Secretary Franklin K. Lane of the Interior department concerning the completion of the Sun river irrigation project, the Montana power company has its contract with the reclamation ser­ vice completed, so far as building the power line from this city to Augusta is concerned. The line has been completed throughout its length and the company is now ready to deliver its power to the site o f the big dam where it was the original plan of the reclama­ tion service to utilize the power in the construction work there. Announcement of the fact that the power line has been complet­ ed was authorized Monday, though it is understood that the actual work has been completed for several day s—Great Falls Tribune. Wilson’s Cabinet Better preserve this: you will want it to give information to somebody who thinks you know: Secretary of state, William J. Iryan of Nebraska. Secretary of treasury, William G. MacAdoo New, York. Secretary of war, Lindley M. Garrison of New Jersey. Attorney general, James C. McReynolds of Tennessee. Postmaster general, Albert Sid­ ney 'Burleson of Texas.
