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 little fireflies that we have here are almost insignificant com­ pared with those that are found in t’entral and »South America and he West Indies.

Wo» k Now in Progress W hich W ill Convey W ater to, ¡a /L a r g e Area: • Work haâ been actively begun on the dam on Sun rivèr at Priest’s crossing twelve miles west of - Great Falls. The plans for'this pròjeçt were proposed . so nie two / years ago/ but were abandoned, for some reason. Lately , the value of the »lands under irrigation ha» become so apparent that hesitancy no longer exists in the minds of men possessing ample means to complete the work and it will be pushedTorward rapidly. A crejpr*’ of men is now at work and a feyr. months will suffice to1 make the project a success. - All that portion óf- Sun river \ above Priest’s crossing is under water and its fertility has been shown by the large crops'- raised in successive years. The plan now about to be perfected consist» - in the construction of a dam which will furnish power to operate rot­ ary pumps similar to those in ;ysë at the copper smelter in this bity : whereby water is raised to supjplyr. ;f liffcbncen tra tor.: The pumps-will-- . have a capacity sufficient to fill 36; or 40 inch pipes running north’ and south from the dam to • reser­ voirs, from which the water will be conveyed on the lands to be ir­ rigated by means of ditché». These lands, in places, now pro­ duced good crops, but in an ex* I remely dry spason the yield i» not certain. The water to be con­ veyed thereto renders it possible to get a large yield - each season. Some 13,000 or 14,000 acres—in fact all the available agricultural area bei ween Priest’s crossing and the mouth of the Sun . river will, be covered by the water from the - reservoirs.. The vhlue of this work cannot/, be fully appreciated until* t h y / yield of the>thousands o f acre» '-il.:, will transform into' productive farms is harvested. The./bench/ lands west of thè .city will be cou- | verted into, as fertile farms as any in' the- state. .The, promoters of thi§ great.Vwork àre entitled to credit for iheir enterprise/ Agri- - culture-is destined at a near day to bë a very important industry in northern Montana, and the pro­ ducts o f , the husbandman’s toil will find ready market/in.
