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.

If much of it could be kept front getting away, the effect on the crop of next spring will be very beneficial. How can it be kept in the sod? In two ways. By the first the land will be disked as soon as the grain - is cut. By the second it will be plowed and hail -owed as soon as plowed. The land that has been disked may be plowed later if necessary, or it may go over to the following spring in the !disked form, but usually it will be t prefereble to plow it. Every effort should be put forth as far as this is possible to save the moisture in the sod. • In many places the sod has been Wet doss n far enough to make it plow I • nicely could time be secured to do this ii ork. lhi of course does not apply1 to all parts of the state, but it does to t many places.

Warren - Potter and his Wife have leased the building front P. J. O'Hara and will stock and furnish the place as soon as possible. Mr. and Mrs. Porter went to Great Falls today to get supplies. Mr. Porter has for sometime past been conducting a hotel and saloon at Knerville, but believes Geyser offers a more Lucrative held for business.

PURDY, GEYSER, MONTANA Dealer in General Merchandise W E would like to draw ypur attention to the fact that dried fruits at the present time are practically off the market and what is on the market is very high. The new crop coming on for this year will be considerably higher than last year (excepting prunes, which will be about the same as last year). On account of the high prices and scarcity of, dried fruits, we suggest that you buy canned fruits to' take the. place of dried fruits until the new crop of dried fruit is on the market. We have to oiler you in the canned fruit line the following, and will guarantee the quality to be excellent. If you can find any store - in the country that will sell you quality merchandise for any less money than we will sell you, we \\ ill COIISILIVI' II a favor if you will inform its.
