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.

Shaw, who has been in the ehst -on a business ‘ trip, pointed out that the Montana wheat crop this year will amount to 61,000,000 bushels, as ■compared with 19,000,000 bushels in 1922. The situation in Montana is not different from that of other states of the norhwest, President Coolidge was told by Mr. Shaw and Julius Barnes, president of the chamber of com­ merce of the United States. Mr. Barnes laid before Mr. Coolidge a «compilation- of reports to sjbow that steadily increased buying power of the country’s urban population is Laving a beneficial effect \upon the conditions of the farmers. Business conditions throughout the country are are on a fairly stable Lasis, except for the existence of two “sore spots,” according to Herbert- Hoover, secretaiy of commerce. One of these is due to the low price being paid for grain in the west, the other to the unsettled conditions resulting from the international unsettlement involved in the French-German strug­ gle. “Notwithstanding, the area in which stability exists is much great­ er, so far as the United States is concerned, than that which is affect­ ed by either German conditions or the grain growers’ plight,” Secretary Hoover said. General satisfaction is expressed with the course of President Coolidge in sending Eugene Meyer and Frank ,W. Mondell of thd War Finance cor­ poration into iihe northwest on, .a* fact finding mission. ■M. ■>A V&'i THE COMMUNITY METHODI8T EPISCOPAL CHURCH (Robert B.
