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.

Flathead county's tnon will see isior times when a few more homo helping, homo-supplying homo in dustries are in activo-( peratiou. When Flathead county mills began grinding wheat and making flour for Flathead use right there an outpour of thousands of dollars annually was stopped. Tho experience iu that ono direction should have lieenjin impe tus to tho building of other indus tries, and perhaps it was to sonio de gree, but not to tho extent that is possible. But there is u sign of other county industries. A creamery company hns been formed—whether it menus business or uot remains to bo set'll.' This puner hopes that the now company will have a'first class creamery iu operation at the earliest date. -It will keen hundreds of dol lars iu tho county thut now go out, for there are scores ' of people who believe that the choicest ranch butler cannot equal the creamery product. If properly managed, and fair treat ment accorded to patrons'tho creum- ory will succeed.
