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.

A committee of the Great ‘Falls Commercial Club has solicited more than $300 in cash and a number o f special awards for the show and nh attractive premium list is assured. County Agent F. E. MacSpadden of Cascade county is actively assisting the commercial club in making ar­ rangements for the big show while 'County Agent Blaine G. Ferguson of Pondera county, County Agent Char­ les Ruziclta of Chouteau county, County Agent Robert H. Clarkson of Teton county and R. C. Bricker of Juditih Basin are lining up large ex­ hibits n their respective counties. Teton county will send from 800 to 1000 ears to the show, Pondera and Chouteau will probably enter more than 500 ears each, Judith Basin will send fully 500 eai'S and Cascade will probably enter close to 2000 ears. Meagher county is rather a dark horse so far but reports from White Sulphur Springs indicate that the growers in that district will spring some surprises. One of the features of the show will be a display of Illinois and Mis- L raised in North Central Montana with that from the com belt. Ten ear classes at the corn show are as follows: Yellow dent, white dent, white capped yellow dent, Northwestern dent, white fline, yel­ low flint, mixed flint, white sweet corn, i yellow sweet corn and popcorn. The first three places in each class will be awarded cash prizes and rib­ bons, and fourth and fifth places wrill draw ribbons.

Twenty-five dollars will be awarded for the best six ears of any dent, $15 for the second best and $10 for the third best. The same awards will be made for the best six ears of- any flint corn. All. corn entered for these prizes is to become the property of the bank for display purposes. The Woodward special of $5 will go to the best exhibit of mature corn raised at the highest altitude. Other special prizes will be awarded Tor the best single ear of any dent, the best siDgle ear of any flint, the six largest ears of any flint’, the six largest ears of any dent and the largest ear in the show. 45 ' Most of the children attended the football game Saturday, although they eUjoyed the game very much they were .sorry the score was in favor of the visiting team, 6 to 0.

Bill Upman, R. E. Creed Taylor, quarter back Coffey and Crane, half backs. William Burns, full back. Substitutes, Wipnid, Looney, Moser Crary, Slanger,* Yeager, Cohoe.

Crary was hostess at a theatre party Tuesday evening in honor of her sister, Mrs. Frank Dag­ gett. After the theatre a delightful luncheon was served at the Crary home. While the nation as a whole and th epoliticians in particular have been wondering about the attitude of Pres­ ident Coolidge the executive has been gathering the views of leaders in all walks of life at White House confer­ ences. For several weeks letters signed by secretaries to Mr. Coolidge have .been going out saying that the pres­ ident, desiring to get first hand in­ formation regarding the state of the nation, wishes to have the views of “men of vision and experience like yourself.” It is suggested that the recipient of the letter name a time- when he can conveniently come to Washington, so that an engagement can be arranged. As the result of these letters Mr. Coolidge has been receiving leaders and laymen from every walk of life, ‘‘dirt’’ farmers, bankers, and other business and professional men, labor chiefs, religious workers of all de- nocinations and creeds, and repre­ sentatives of every line of industry. Many of these callers are invited to have luncheon with the president, who has let it he known that he con­ siders this a part of his program of self education. This program of the President’s has been compared tyitli the gathering of “best minds” of the nation at Marion during the months \before the late Mr. Harding assumed office. Mr. Coolidge has said that since congress will be called upon to act upon his views and suggestions he intends to let the congress be first in receiving his opinion of affairs upper­ most in the public mind. A CORRECTION In an article of last week, relative to the decision of Judge John J. Greene in the petitions for the return of liquor to G. F. Underwood and. Andrew Streng, our second line in the heading read \Liquor Illegally Seized Returned to Claimant.” This line as handed to the printer contained the word “not” before “returned” thus making an absolutely different mean­ ing to the line. A reading of the news item will convince anyone that a mistake had been made In the heading as the judge ordered the illicit liquor and other articles of a like nature destroyed within five days by the sheriff, and. do doubt, his orders have been complied with before now. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Ilirshberg and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ilirshberg were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hirshberg of Fairfield Monday. A w Noble Ambition The ambition of this institution is to jus­ tify the confiednec of its customers, to be trusted because of its good judgment, its faithful observance of duty and its financial responsibility. Conferences with the officers of this bank are cheerfully given to those who desire seasoned and well-reasoned advice. ---------- Mrs. B.
