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.

ANNIMINIF - _=ANIMMP!\- WU - TREASURE STATE FARM AND LIVESTOCK ;MAMMON OK'S PLANS FOR 1 9 600 MOLES OF MONTANA HIGHWAYS TO COST $5 9 500 5 000 With seven members or•the state highway commission present at a meeting s ?held last week at Helena, the road -building departmenl of the state launched the 1920 program calling for 1,600 miles of highway - construction, in addition to many miles of paving in various cities of the state on niain roads, to be put over at a cost of $$5,500,000, half of which v;ill be paid for by Montana counties and half by the federal government. Members of the com- mission approved the glans and specifications including tffe big pro- gram, after much work by the ex- ecutive committee and the engineers of the department. The members of the commission present were Frank Conley, presi- dent; A. W. Mahon, secretary; C. H. Buford of Virginia ('ity; Samuel Webb, Columbus; C. W. Morrison, Fort, Benton; E. A. Richardson, Forsyth, and A. V. Gibson of Kalis- pell. A. jf. 13owman, chairman of the board of cpunty commissioners of Big Horn county, met with the ap- proval of the board in his plan to open up a new highway project in his county. He proposes that the right-of-way of the Burlington from Toluca to Cody, Wyo., a distance of 70 miles, which has been abandon- ed, be secured to the state line and mede into a splendid highway-, with a grade already established. It is also planned to co-operate with Wyoming and secure an extension across the state line. \The commission will start ask - in for bids •on projects under the program as - soon as possible, John N Edy, chief engineer for the com- mission, said. .\We want contract- ors now,\ he added. Along with other plans for next year, sentiment was expressed in favor of the $15,000,000 bond issue ' for more and better roads, to be ' constructed in this state with the funds if the referendum is passed at I the next general election.

MONTANA'S SUGAR SUPPLY IS SHORT L Pays To Raise 'Fall Pigs Why farmers, who raise pork, do Naturally, fall weather is not as . . . . . not generally raise fall pigs is 80111e- favorable for raising pigs as is the WNS . CAN ONLY DOLE OUT SMALL PACKAGES TO CUSTOMERS . Sugar is the scarcest article in the Montana markets today and many merchants are without a grain. It is being sold in limited quantities in many towns, the limits being fixed by the different dealers according to the amount on hand and their idea of when more will arrive. Packages of sugar retailing for 15, 25 and 50 cents and $1 have been sold, one to each customer in Ilelena, Great Falls, Butte and other cities of the state during the past two weeks. Several of the leading grocera of the state went out of the sugar busi- ness entirely when the last of their available stock was delivered to pat- rons and the dealers discovered that wholesalers had none also. Several of the Helena merchants said they ordered sugar in plenty of time, ,but when a car ordered from the south was reported \lost\ some- where between Salt .Lake and Butte an4 other shipments from the east failed to arrive, they found them- selves without any stock and their patrons clamoring for it. The sugar shortage is not confin- ed to Montana, however, but is gen- eral and has been felt for several weeks in larger middle western cit- ies. The sugar situation reached na- tional recognition one day during the week when the New York stock mar- ket reflected the lack with a big raise in the price of the stock.

The fall pig market, which runs from April to September, is nearly always higher than the spring pig market, which includes the months of January, February, March, and October, November and December. Despite the facts that the fall pig requires more labor and more feed to each hundred pounds gain figures given below indicate that there is more profit in raising the fall pig than the spring pig. The extra labor required to raise fall pigs is offset by the fact that the farmer lias more extra tinie in the fall and winter than lie has in the spring and summer. The fall pig will need more feed than the spring pig because he requires food to keep up the bodily warmth, and also he has no grass upon which he can run. What An Experiment ShOWC11 The experiment quoted below was conducted in 1914-1915; and the prices given are more nearly norptiQ and more nearly what may be ex- pected in the future, than are the present ones. Spring pigs (alfalfa until out of season): Shelled corn self fed. Number of days on feed, 180. Average daily gain, 1.22 lbs. Feed °MA* daily, 4.43 lbs. Total feed per 100 lbs. gain, 364 pounds. Cost per 100 lbs. gain, corn at 60 cents, $3.83. Return per bushel corn, with $6 hogs, 83.09. Fall Pigs • Shelled corn and meat meal, both self fed, plus limestone, charcoal and rock salt, free choice. Number of days fed, 100. Average daily gain, 159 lbs. Total feed per 100 pounds gain, corn at 70 cents, $5.14. Return per bushel corn, with $8.00 hogs, $1.14. There are other advantages de- rived from raiaing fall pigs. One of these is that the cost of keeping the sow is reduced. Also the pigs are about the best size to follow steel's. and meat meal, both IIERE I .PTONIF BOT'LED VACATION \ 0 I_ ...Ail_ • a... _ , ' spring weather, consequently build- ings for fall pigs should be warm and dry. The quarters should be well bedded, sunlit, facing the south, with sidewalls about 2.5 to 3 feet in at the back and about 5 to 6 feet high at the front, and have a floor space of approximately 6 by 8 feet. Each pen of this type will accommo- date comfortably six to ten fall pigs through the winter. Give Sows Skim Milk Feed the suckling sows with a lib- eral supply of skim milk, also meat meal and tankage, peas and corn and turn them opt on good pasture such as alfalfa, rape, or succulent fall blue grass. Fix a creep for the pigs so there will be corn, meat meal, tankage, and wheat middlings ready for them when they learn to eat epart from their dam,\ he says. \Push them along with a little milk now and then, and It may be well to soak the corn for them. The fall pig that does well later on when prices are high is the one that gets' a good start. \Give them every opportunity to develop into marketable 235 or 250 pound hogs by April when the mar- ket usually is good.\ MONTANA ROADS NOW RANK SECOND ONLY CALIFORNIA EXCELS THIS STATE IN' HIGHWAYS, DE- CLARES II.
