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.
LUME Xl. EKALAKA, CARTER COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, SPTEMBER 26, 1919. NUMBER 39 EAVY CATTLE Aty thousand head of cattle will 3 year be shipped to eastern mark - s nit pastures from the territory by the Milwaukee railroad be- ien Great Falls and Harlowton and the branch lines running out of eistown to the east and northeast, the liarlowton Press. H. R. keske, division freight agent and senger agent for that road, says t already 1900 cars of cattle, rses and sheep have been sent out en these sections already and that fore the shipping season closes 400 ditional cars will be loaded. Only small percentage of the consign - nits have included cattle and sheep d practically all shipments still to made will be of cattle. 'Estimates I have previously made re been so far short of reaching the rnber of cattle actually going out st I hesitate about making further edictions,\ said Mr. Wahoske, \but e have unfilled orders for 220 cars id I think the number will easily ach 400 before the movement of sek le completed. Forty thousand el have been shipped now. There Li been about a 50-50 split between tele sent to pastures and those ship- sd direct to market. When the move- ent first began about 25 per cent ent to market and 75 per cent to Astern ranges but these figures are rsersed now and I think, on an aver - re, that there has been an equal di - Won of finished and unfinished stuff gwed out of our territory. ~My business has brought me in ntact with ranchers a gret deal,\ ntinued Mr. Wahoske, \and along tit others who know what their in- ntions are for next year, I find much use for optimism in relation to the Cure of the livestock industry in ontana. So many ranchers have d me that they intend to re -stock rith smaller but higher quality herds hat le beems certain the drouth will ills. at least one beneficial effect - restock standar& will be materially sistel. There are few stockmen who will not he able to re -stock their ranges and I am satisfied that when e look over the stock situation one tear from now we will recognize a keeled improvement in the quality of animals. Of course, many hundreds of stockmen will bring back the same stock being sent out this fall, but the endency every -where will be more to- wards better grades. \Coming over from Lewistown to - ay,\ said 61r. Wahoske, in referring o farm conditions, \I saw field fter field where drills were at work. I de not recognize the least inclina- tion tin the part of the farmers to cut doer, their operations on account of the drouth. \Plowing has been under way for 14 past two months and the faith which the average farmer is possess- ed IS shown by the amount of seed ttw going into the ground. Between Greit Falls and Lewistown the coun- try, so far as preparations for the crop year is concerned, looks normal. If the acreage in 1920 is to be less than it was this year, the dif- ference now distinguishable is so small that it can't be seen with the naked eye. I saw a man at Denton the other day who already has 600 acres of seed in the ground and to hear him talk about his plans one would never know that there had been a drouth this year. Like nearly everybody else lie is going ahead as if he had a normal trop in the 'hock. ere is a general, well-founded belief over the state that land values will advance rapidly with the harvest of the next crop. Prices in the east long ago passed the product.on value and what will appear as cheap farms to the people who are now paying tip to $600 per acre for land is bound to have its effects.\ .
