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 AGENT The board of county commissioners has decided to submit to the voters at the coming primary election the question of retaining a county agent In Flathead: county. The matter Is one to be considered from two view points, viz, economy and the need of such an officer. So far as this section of the county is concerned, wo believe we voice the sentiments of a majority of farmers when we say that the services of a county agent can be dispensed with, and that if the matter Is submitted to a vote this needless expense will be wiped out. For some reason the county ageufs services have been decldely limited In this end of the county. In fact, there has (been cons|dera*lt complaint on this score. The dissat isfaction dates back several years when the Commercial club of this city attempted to hold a \Farmer'! Day\ In this city with the county agent scheduled to be the principal *' Considerable advertising and some expense curred in arrnngli« for the Ing; the crowd was present, but the county agont failed to aippear, and unsatisfactory, was heard before over of the grasshopper poison.

Farmers Offered e from the ROAD OPEN The new Kootenla river road from Rexford to Libby, the connecting link in the Theodore Roosevelt highway In this county Is now open for traffic. Work on the grade has been complet ed. and although there Is still some surfacing to do, it Is no longer nec- cessary to use the detours. The opening up of this road has brought considerable traffic through this section and the advertising of the .Scenic International-Parks high way 1s bringing a lot niore south. 4 -That Kallspell garage men are well posted on roads through this section or have no dealre to tourists this relay was ovldenced atfaln this week, when a party of tourists who came here stated that they could no Information as to the road to to Eureka and were told that there no possible chance to get thru to Libby.
