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 EKALAKA EAGLE u NDER present conditions suc- cess in the beef cattle industry is absolutely dependent ttpon good breeding and proper feeding.\ These words spell the doom of the old time cow business in Montana. They are taken from the latest bulle- tin of the Montana Experiment Sta- tion, \Winter Feeding of Beef Calves\ by C. N. Arnett, R. C. Mc- Cord and J. O. Tretsven. With these cold matter-of-fact words, the glamorous cattle industry of yesterday which furnished the theme for song and story, slips quiet- ly into the past. They furnish the climax to the old story and the intro- duction to the new one that is now being written. They come at the end of a long series of events and chang- ing conditions which pointed to the inevitable obliteration of the old- tirne range cattle business. Several years before the war the range steer started slipping. More and more finished cattle were cOming to the market places and the four- year -old from the ranges of the west was gradually being crowded into on- scurity. With the coming of the war and the great demand for food, the western steer experienced a little comeback. All meat was in demand and the old-time range business took on a new lease of life. The revival was short lived, however. The de- flation after the close of the war sent the business into its lowest depths. The struggle to come out of these depths has been going on for five years. The effort was hopeless. The thinning ranks of the old range producers made the struggle more and more feeble and now it appears that the last word, \Finis is being written. But out of the wreck of oil busi- ness a new and more enduring one is being built. It is but another case of \The King is dead, long live the King.\ Progress has again shoved the old aside to make room for the new. The well bred, well fed calf is tak- ing the place of the four -year -old steer. The Montana Experiment Station is blazing a trail that the new busi- ness may proceed in the right direc- tion. It is engaged in a series of ex- periments with different kinds of Montana grown feeds to determine which is the best and the most eco- nomical. The bulletin referred to on \Winter Feeding of Beef Calves.\ is a report on these experiments giv- ing a detailed account of the feeds used, their various combinations, the costs and the results obtained. The winter feeding of beet e,alves is an old established business in the L. : TREASURE STATE FARM AND LOVESTOCK MONTANA BANKS GAIN DEPOSITS Good Itreeds Properly Fed Mean Success in ,Cattile (Wont the Nfontana State Collage). For fattening calves for spring sale a heavy grain ration must be fed according to the results of experi- rnents with five lot calves. The calves were fed for an average of 150 days. During the feeding period the calves averaged a gain of more than 250 pounds per head or an average daily gain of 1.69 pounds. The av- erage daily ration per head was 6.39 pounds of krain and 8.81 pounds of hay. Figuring grain at $1.50 per hundred pounds and hay at $10 a ton, it cost $8.27 to put on 100 pounds of gain. At the end of the feeding period the calves \were in good condition for killing purposes\ but it was estimated that it would have required 50 days more feeding to make the calves prime. For bringing calves through the winter, turning them out on pasture during the spring and summer for fall marketing, straight hay rations, as well as hay with a small amount of grain and hay with sunflower tillage were tried. The hay with the small amount of grain produced slightly better gains than the hay alone or hay and silage but, \The calves fed on hay alone made good growth and were in excellent condition to turn on grass at the close of the feeding per- iod. The hay and medium grain ra- tion, when fed for 149 days, did not give a satisfactory finish and market condition at the close of the feeding period. It is a question whether the difference in condition at the close of the grazing season would pay the difference in cost of feed.\ Sunflower silage added to the hay ration provided a slightly better con- dition but gains were almost the same as with straight hay. Whether silage would pay depends upon the cost of hay and silage. It takes 3.2 pounds of silage to replace one pound of hay. From the standpoint of hay, a mix- ture of timothy and elflike clover produced slightly better results than alfalfa and the mixture caused less trouble from bloat and scouring. The bulletin closes with a caution that small late calves do not make satis- factory gains on course. rough feeds, because of lack of capacity.

SlUPERINTENDENT LARSON SAYS HEALTHIER CONDITION IS NQW SHOWN Total Resources of 147 State Bank- ing Institutions Have Been In- creased $1,508,687 Since June 30; LOttllS 1110 DiSCO MUCI1 Less. Total resources of 147 state banks and two private banks in Montana have gained *1,508,087 since the report of June 30, 1025, according to the statement issued by Jay G. Larson, superintendent of banks. Total resources on June 30 were $77,804,877, while the total on Sept. 28 was $79,014,596. A decrease of $298,968 is shown in loans and dis- counts, overdrafts, stock in federal reserve banks, furniture and fixtures. The statement reflects a healthy con- dition, according to Mr. Larson, with financial institutions regaining sta- bility. The average reserve June 30 was 22.6 per cent, while on Sept. 28 it was 24 per cent. Undivided profits in the 149 insti- tutions reporting show an increase of $142,787, the total June 30 being 3716,413, while Sept. 28 l it was $859,200. Demand deposits have gained $1,646,962 during the three months from a total of $37,339,239 on- June 30 to $38,986,202 on Sept. 28. Savings deposits show an in- crease of $32,149 from a total of $10,850,147 June 30 to $10,882,296 on Sept. 28. The amount due to war finance shows a decrease of $78,119 from $204,436 on June 30 to $126,- 316 on Sept. 28. The recapitalization shows an in- crease in total deposits during the three-month period of $1,359,160. from the June 30 mark of $66,663,- 211 to the Sept. 28 mark of 68,012,- 371. State banks are carrying an excess reserve of $9.564,259. The re- serve Sept. 28 totaled $16,365,496, while the reserve required is $6,- 801,237. Cut!cure Soothes Baby Rashes.

For several days officials and employes of the divimion of grain standards and marketing of the state department of agriculture have been engaged file illSk of Hacking and preparing for- distri- bution miniature sample of certi- fied Alarquis wheat produced in Montana during the past crop season. Twenty thousand sacks, each con- taining two ounces of the wheat, are to be prepared for distribution in this manner, and they will eventually find their way into the hands of people in all parts of the United States through the medium of grain shows in various of the larger cen- ters and through the immigration de- partment of the transcontinental railroads serving this state. The purpose is to advertise the agricultural resources of Montana and to bring before the agricultural- ists of other states the high grade of wheat raised here. Forty bushels of certified Marquis wheat produced in several sections of the state were acquired by the department for thie purpose. A large quantity of the sacked samples will be placed in the hands of the committee which will handle the Montana exhibits at the• Inter- national Hay and Grain show in Chicago, and lots will likewise be dis- tributed through the medium of other exhibitions to be held in the east and the west. The tiny white muslin sacks, to each of which is attached a white muslin slip for poetage stamp and address, bear the printed inscription, \Department of Agriculture, Helena, Montana,\ and on the other side \World's Best 'Quality' Grain and Seed.
