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.

Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for bearing-down feelings and pains. I was troubled in this way for nearly four years following the birth of my first child, and at times could hardly stand on my feet.

The cist of the new fac­ tory will be about $4,000. The con­ cern is backed by the J. L. Kraft Brothers’ company of Chicago and San Francisco, and is operated under the management of the Corvallis Clieeso company. With 2G0 carloads sent to market and only 30 or 35 carloads to snip, the bulk of the marketable apple crop in the Bitter Root valley lias been moved, according to Missoula officials of the Northern Pacific. A goodly portion of tiie Bitter Root crop went to the Nexv York market. Most of the remainder went to the markets within the state. During the week just passed 19 car­ loads of apples were shipped out. Thirty head of range horses were sold at public auction recently at the Dome mountain ranger station near Parhelia by United States Deputy Marshal W. C. Packer, of Helena. The horses were rounded up by the forest service trespassing on the government national forest, and were sold under an order of the federal court. George Preston, Broadus youth, was brought to a Miles City hospital re­ cently in a semi-conscious condition as the result of an accident at his ranch, 80 miles south of here, on November 24, when lie was thrown from his lwrso. lie lias not regained complete consciousness since the accident. Treasure county growers of alfalfa seed will realize more than $40,000 from seed tills year, is the prediction o fmen who have taken an active in­ terest in the marketing of the crop. Had it not been for the heavy and con­ tinuous rains in October it is believed the crop would have been doubled. Approximately 250 employes of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul rail­ road shops in Miles City returned to work after an enforced period of Idle­ ness resulting from the layoff of shop­ men last month. The ear repair de­ partment also opened with a full force of men. “ Raise and Mnrket 10,000 Turkeys at Savage in 1924,” was the slogan adopt­ ed at the big “turkey day” held at Savage recently to bring togetiier a good showing of the birds and to in­ terest more persons in the Industry. A number of farmers brought in splen­ did »exhibits of turkeys. Unbroken horses at a forced sale in Broadus brought an average of $4 a head. More than half of the amount secured was balanced by the expense of rounding up the horses and keeping them until the day of the sale. Great Fails is to be the meeting place of the state Christian Endeavor convention in 1924, according to a de­ cision by the state executive board at a meeting there. Theconvention dates are June 12-1G. According to (lie report the Western Montana fair made a profit of approxi­ mately $2,000 tlds year.

COSI TO n o i l SUIE 1 3 2 2 Federal Department of Commerce I&U68 Authoritative Statement On Expenditures of Montana The department of commerce at Washington announces that the costs of government for the state of Mon­ tana for the fiscal year ended June 30, *1922, amounted to $8,281,224, which was a per capita cost of $13.99. In 1917 the per capita cost was $8.39, and in 1924, $7.06, tiie totals of these years being $4,220,151 and $3,173,064, re­ spectively. The per capita costs for 1922 consisted of expenses’ of genreal departments, $7.99; payments for in­ terest, $0.56; and for outlays, $5.44, more than two-thirds of which was for highways. • The total revenue receipts for 1922 were $8,457,638, or $14.29 per capita. For the fiscal year tiie per capita ex­ cess of revenue receipts over govern­ mental costs was, therefore, $0.30. In Montana property and special taxes represented 2G.1 per cent of tiie total revenue for 1922, 32.1 per cent for 1917, and 39.3 per cent for 1914. The increase in the amount of prop­ erty and special taxes collected was 13.S per cent from 1914 to 1917, aqd 50 per cent from 1917 to 1922. Tiie per capita property and special taxes were $3.72 in 1922, $2.92 in 1917 and $2.87 in 1914. Earnings of general departments, or compensation for services rendered by State officials, represented 7.0 per cent of the total revenue for 1922, 5.7 per centv for 1917, and 11.0 per cent for 1914. Business and nonbusiness licenses constituted 14.3 per cent of the total revenue for 1922, 28.7 per cent for 1917, and 19.3 per cent for 1914. Re­ ceipts from business licenses consist chiefly of tnxes exacted from Insur­ ance and other incorporated com­ panies, while those from nonbusiness licenses comprise taxes on motor ve­ hicles and amounts paid for hunting and fishing privileges. The net Indebtedness (funded and floating debt less sinking fund assets) of Montana was $7.29 per capita for 1922, $1.91 for 1917, and $2.83 for 1914. Of the -bonds issued during tiie year $3,299,000 were for educational pur­ poses and $21,400 for veterans’ wel­ fare. For 1922 the assessed valuation of property In Montana subject to ad valorem taxation was $450,200.278; the amount of taxes levied was $2,105,4S7; and the per capita levy, $3.50.

Then the poor fisli quaffed deeply, indulged in some exhiiirated wriggling, turned up tiieir fins and went to tiie happy fishing grounds, or wherever all good fishes go. And to cap tiie climnx, the officers are con­ sidering filing a charge rif violating the game laws against Joseph Podcrskl, alleged owner of tiie mash under ar­ rest for manufacturing intoxicating liquors, who would have parted with his left foot rather titan have done the very thing of which he may be ac­ cused.

Of the tax revenue received from public utilities tiie four units of Montana will receive $122,529.25, and $245,058.60 will be credited to the state general fund, as compared with $11,145.45 to the Uni­ versity of Montana last year and $222,- 290.90 to the state general fund. These public utility properties are assessed at 40 per cent of their full valuation, which makes the assessed vuIuation_this year $105,025,101, ns against $95,293,242.40 for 1922. Of tlds assessed valuation a ta x levy of 3% mills goes to the state, one-third of which is credited to the funds o f the University of Montana and two-thirds is credited to the state general fund. Tiie various counties of the_state re­ vive the major part of this revenue, ihe county levy being about 53 mills as against 3% mills which the state re­ ceives, and in addition the counties re­ ceive tiie tax paid on non-operated properties, such as real estate, hotels, and other buildings and plants.

D A I R Y IN D U S T R Y IS ON T H E IN C R E A S E T HE year 1923 is showing a gratify­ ing increase of interest In the dairy industry In Montana, according to George H. Webster, chief of the dairy division of the state department of agriculture. From reports received covering the first nine months of 1923 an increase in production of butter fat of 40 per cent over last year is indi­ cated for 1923, he says. Mr. Webster lias just returned from Eau Claire county, Wisconsin, where, acting for dniry farmers of Valley county, he purchased 20 grade Guern­ sey cows and two pure-bred Guc-n^v bulls for the improvement of Valley county herds. One of these 5'uii‘ states, is one of the best pure-bred bulls ever brougnt to Montana, his dam having a record of 61G pounds of but­ ter fat made in 12 months ifi calss AA. F L O C K M A S T E R S W A R N E D O F S T O M A C H W O R M S S HEEPMEN of Montana are warned by Dr, W. I. Butler, state veterin­ arian, to be on the watch for stomach worms in their flocks, which, he says, made their appearance in the state Inst year, and have shown a slight in­ crease this year. The disease is fatal to young lambs, but does not result so seriously to old slieep. It appears that the trouble is being brought in from outside states, and slieep men are ad­ vised by the state veterinarian to seg­ regate the imported sheep from the domestic and to treat them with the copper sulphate remedy. C O P P E R C O M P A N Y W O U L D R E C O V E R T A X M O N E Y NACONDA Copper Mining com­ pany has filed suit in the district court of Lewis and Clark county against O. II. .Tunod, as state treas­ urer, asking judgment against the state for $3.449 which represents the amount of license tax paid under pro­ test on the not proceeds of the Butte Hill mine and Nettie mine for 1922.

Finding their onditions intolerable, the Plebeians in 495 B.

BIG ORCHARD IN VERMONT Privately-Owned One at Bennington Occ”iie s 3,600 Acrea and Has 65,000 Trees. Vermont lays claim to the largest privately-owned orchard in this coun­ try. It Is located at Bennington, be­ ing. the property of Edward H. Ever­ ett of OKI Bennington. In this plant­ ing there are more than 50,000 apple trees and 15,000 trees, partly of pear, plum, quince and cherry. The area occupies more than‘ 3,600 acres of land at the base and on the eastern slope of Mount Anthony, and extends' over a large portion of Car­ penter hill. It is understood that the ultimate goal is 100,000 fruit trees. Some of the rows of trees In this orchard are almost a mile long. The orchard trees are set out Jn large divisions and the divisions are subdivided into blocks lettered after the alphabet. Some of the blocks are so numerous that—the manager has had to double back on the alphabet in tiie same division. Every row of trees is given a letter and every cross row is given a number. In this way each tree has its specific identification. Different blocks In the orchard are insured against damage by hail, like­ wise against damage by fire.—Detroit News. W h a t We See in Others.
