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.

Names Places Plentywood— By W. J. Hagen, Editor Plentywood Herald To the early-day cowhand and Indian, Plentywood, now a thriving city of 2,100 population, in Sheridan county on the plains of Northeastern Montana, was “plenty good.” Here wagon tram caravans of squatters and homesteaders found haven after weeks of travel by oxen over unmarked trails, broken only by the monotony of buffalo grass. Plentywood’s history dates back to the turn of the century. The story is told how a group of weary cowboys from the Dia­ mond ranch outfit on the Missouri made camp on a small creelf. They were cold and hungry. The camp cook was striving vainly to coax some buffalo chips into flame. Dampness thwarted his1 efforts. It was “Dutch” Henry, notorious figure in early Sheri­ dan county history who remarked to the cook, “If you’ll go two miles up creek you’ll find plenty wood.” Since that historic day, tljis county seat town has been known as Plentywood. Ryegate— By W. D. Allan, Publisher Clarion Ryegate was established in 1&09 by the Milwaukee road. It was named by surveyors of the railroad, who made camp by a rye field. . . _ A . Ryegate is the county seat of Golden Valley county in Central Montana, population 448. Located five miles north of famous Big Coulee where winter wheat is raised on dry land strip crop­ ping. During the past nine years, yields have varied from 20 to .45 bushels per acre. Ryegate is attractively located just north of the Musselshell river. 200-ft. solid limestone rock rims border on the north edge of town, providing an ideal location for the water supply reser­ voir for the city operated water system.
