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.

Candidate For Republican Nomination For Sheriff The Montanan is in receipt of information that the list o.f candidates f o r \-thh republican nomination, for sheriff of this county will be augumented by the filing of Charles W. Wymer uf this city. The publisher of 'this paper has known Mr. Wy­ mer for a number of years, and have always found him to be an upright, honorable and consci­ entious citizen, and we believe that the voters of this county could look a long while before finding a more able man for the position. As yet we have no knowledge of what his platform will be, but from past experien­ ces, we are sure it will be for the best interests of Teton, county. day where they had been mak­ ing arrangements for the spring work there. SCOTT L E M Washington, May 7.— I f re­ turned for a second term Con­ gressman Scott Leavitt, in an­ nouncing his candidacy for re­ nomination and election, this week stated that his entire time would be devoted to serving the people of his district and repre­ senting them in congress to the best of his ability. Monday he Mailed his nominating- petition tp'-'Shcrstary of '\State Stewart, which insures his name appear­ ing on the nominating ballot at the primary elections on August 27. As at the 1922 election he asks that the following words appear after his name on the ballot : “ F or 'the greatest good to the greatest number.” In his nominating petition Mr. Leavitt says: “ I f T am nominated and elect­ ed I will during my term of of­ fice \or>in t lie to guavd the in­ terests of those to whom the na­ tion owes a debt of gratitude for their defense of its exist­ ence; to work consistently and to the best of my ability for the good of all the people through such measures as will best ad­ vance and protect the social, agricultural, business and in­ dustrial needs of Montana and the general welfare and peace o f its people: to stand for jus­ tice and for the enforcement of law and the preservation of ¡those instutitions existing under jthe constitution of the United ¡States which guarantees the liberties o f our nation and its citizens.” ‘Td like to borrow $50 to buy a cow I saw yesterday,\ said a farmer to the cashier of a country bank. The cashier hesitated. “No, I can’t lend, you $50 for a cow, but I’ll let you have $100 or $125.” Astonishment was written all over the face of the man seeking funds. “Why. I can’t afford to pay that amount for a cow. I’m rather hard up just now.” “ If you can afford to buy a cow at all, you can afford to b»y a good cow instead of a poor one,\ replied the cashier. Then he proceeded to ex­ plain just why a high-priced cow was cheaper than one costing only $50. “The average cow, producing about 165 pounds of butterfat valued at 50 cents a pound, earns $82 as a year’s gross income,\ he said. “Deducting the. cost qf feed leaves a profit of only $10- to $12, and does not -take into ac­ count the labor involved, deprecia^ tion,' and other overhead expenses. Now can you honestly afford to buy this kind of a cow? A $100 or |125 cow .jvill produce 300 to 350 pounds of butterfat. You can figure the prof­ its for yourself.\ , April, 1924, did not vary a great deal from normal except in precipitation and the number of cloud days. The tempera­ tures ere about the same for 1922 and 1923. There was a lower peccipitation with a larg­ er number of cloudy and partly cloudy days.
