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.

The county is fast being “ cleaned up” finan­ cially, and with no beneficial re­ sult that is apparent to anyone but the Acantha.

In 1893 Teton county was created and he was appointed ounty attorney by the legisla­ ture. His careful advice to new officers in a new county and his just administration of his dut­ ies brought him his re-election without opposition in 1894. He was again elected and served during the term of 1901 and 1902. Since then he has devot­ ed himself to his law practice giving particular attention to to waters and water-rights, cor­ porations and probate law. He has prepared an office digest of over 200 Montana water cases, and, many- special and criminal law briefs.

W e have not yet charged the sheriff, w ith extravagance— that is possibly, yet to come— but we did and do question his effic iency and economy in thè. light o f what he has failed to accom­ plish. It may be true that the expense of.-the sheriff’s office was about $1000 less for 1923 than for 1922, but it is also tme that thè present sheriff was a deputy in 1922, superfluous, probably, but nevertheless the beneficiary of what is now sug­ gested °n his behalf as the ex­ travagance o f'h is form er chief. ! The form er sheriff gathered in around,$4000 f o r the pounty in The Rocky Mountain Teleiag had its yearly meeting last Sun­ day. in Hanson's grove. About two hundred and -fifty people were gathered. The program was rendered in Norwegian ex­ cept fo r , the national anthems, The. S^ar Spangled Banner” and “ A merica.” ' Several good speak-; ers as well as many good sing­ ers helped in the entertaining. Many tables were set with the delicious Norwegian eats.

He has always believed in keep­ ing a client out of court rather than coaxing him into court or “ Compromise is better than waste” , “ Equal jutsice to all., powerful or poor” is his slogan and “ Equal enforcement of all laws for or against all equally” . Mr. Sulgrove served as Chair­ man o f the committee for the establishment of the Teton Gounty High School and his, work is evidenced by the fact that every vote in Choteau pre­ cinct but one was for the school. He also served one year as Chairman of the district school board resigning _ on account of ill health. During this- year he established three schools in the Fairfield and Bole country. Fo?\ several years he was sole trus­ tee o f the Library Association paying all the expense himself. Mr. Sulgrove has probably the largest general library and His­ torical library in the county. He still lives in Choteau with his wife and six children. * » Grain Growers Are.

Persons entering the area via Ear Mountain may obtain per­ mits at the supervisor’s office at Choteau .or at the Ear Mountain Ranger Station, and in case the ranger is absent, permits may be obtained from the W rong Creek, which is the first camping place within the area. The Sun River patrolman and district ranger at Hannan gulch, will issue permits for person entering by way of the Sun. River canyon. All persons entering by way of the Willow Creek station can. obtain a permit there or from the firman at Benchmark, which is ordinarily the first camp used by the public entering the area affcted. Mr. Myrick stated that the dryness of the season, together with the large number of fires in the forests of district 1 which have been traced to transients, makes such drastic measures necessary if the damage from- this source is to be controlled, but that every effort would be made to minimize the inconven-. ience to the' public.
