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 wheat yields reported by thresh ers in this part ol the yalley are surpris ingly lew. Few fields have averaged more than 26 bushels to the acre. . straw bandied, in some instances, would . promice a yield of 40 bushels. Thresh- - ere say the extreme and continued hot weather ripened the whoat prematurely and did not give the heads time to fill. The general average in tbli locality, so far as reported will be from 15 to 17 bushels per sere. This is a abort hall crop. If any betta*-'*Tiument ca advanced in favor of a general system of . Irrigation for the valley, this paper . would like to print it. The lands now cultivated are those that promise the . best yields without irrigation. The • question of irrigation is of suclt vital it terest to all the people of thii yalley . that it should overshadow all others for . the time being. The longer, action is r deferred the more difficut will it become - to maugerate ahd put into use aucb a • system as Natura lias made provision for. An excited woods-man, who for two weeks baa been making an heroic aud . successful fight to save hit improve ments and timber from tpe ravages ol , tire, stated that scores of deer were pan ic stricken by the fire in one locality and perished. He also said that at night , grouse and othes birds, when disturbed, i instead of flying away from the fire, fly , into it like beetles and are to be found f in great numbers ready cooked, wher- . .ever the fire bas run at night. Thegame not only perishes in the fires but its shelter is destroyed and it will only re turn again when the forest is restored. The Gsine Warden and his deputies . should be trained and efficient Are fight ers and it should be made their duty to help other citizens of the state protect the game preserves. m should l^fes of , State and Federal authorities - send competent men along the 1[ , the Great Northern railroad to exatu- , ine the hundreds of incipient fires, the , majority of which have burned them selves out, that were evidently started by sparks from the locomotiv|t. The railroads are too big for local antbori- , ties to deal with. Statutes prohibiting . the setting of fires are and will remain “ dead letters\ as long as the Great Northern van ignore them with such * impunity. If J . /. Hill speaks on irri gation at the Helena fair, some one •lionld ask him what he knows about the use of screens on locomotive stacks. It is just possible that he may not know of such a devise, or of any other that would minimize the danger. Settlers are the efficient tire fighters. Thev not only make roads, which in themselves tend to check fires and fa- cilate speedy travel from one locality to another, but they free tlieir lands of rubbish and under growth so that in case fire does go through the heat gen erated at the gronnd is.not sufficient t< send the fire into the tree tops. They have more at interest than the salary of a forest ranger to arouse zeal sad im pel action. The government should lose no lime in so modifying its forest reserve policy as to encourage settle-1 meat on the arable lands embrac.-l in the reserves. The old soldiers from tbs Home went in e body to Kalispell last Thursday, and atTlyoli Park, joined with the old veterans of tbs county and went into camp for three days, renewed old ac quaintances, and had an enjoyable tloie.
