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.

Lyng. a well-known cattle man of Highwood, has received this week the top price so far as we have been able to learn, for Ins lot of 100 tine four- and hi e- y ear -old steers, J. P. Johnson, of Brio, lowa, being the buyer. Mr. Johnson, who has been in the neighborhood since the season opened, talking with the reporter of the Times this week, said: 'This herd of Mr. I.yng's is the best 1 have seen in this neighborhood. They will average close to 1,300 lbs. and are in tine condition. Most of the cattle that were properly wintered are looking tine this year. As a gen- eral rule stock seems to have done better on the bottoms than that pas- tured in the mountains. The average paid this year is about $35 for cows and $45 16 $50 for steers,\ Mr. Johnson is to ship a train load from Spion Kop today and another load from Fort Benton on the 19th.

Fortune for Hay Farmers Scarcity of Forage in Dakotas and Minnesota Means Heat' Sale of Hay in This State Several hundred thousand dollars will be realized by the farmers of Northern Montana within the next few months from the sale of hay to the stock raisers of Minnesota. North and South Dakota, says the Great Falls Leader. On account of the re- versal of crop conditions in thoSe parts during the past seeson. the civic organ- izations of the three states have ap- pealed to the railroads for a special rate for the haulage of hay, and the Northern Pacific has acceded to the request for a limited time. It is likely that the Great Northern and the Mil- waukee will follow suit. As Montana hay crops are as good as ever if not a little better and considerably larger on account of the increased area put into hay during the past year, this state will no doubt be able to quote figures on the product needed that will put com- petition of other states out of the question. The Northern Pacific responsive to the petition of the Minneapolis hay exchange and the commercial clubs of the Var:011S towns where the forage crop problem is serious, has put into effect rates of 30 to 36 cents a hun- dred pounds from Judith Gap to points in North Dakota. This means that alfalfa hay will go east. It will cost $6 a ton to move, but as it can he bought in 11Iontana with profit to Montan:. raisers at $10 a ton, it can be laid down for $16 to $20 a ton, which is less than the prevailing price of tim- othy in the Dakotas and Minnesota.

A few words toward the encouragement or inducement to the public to visit our store in the buying of Dry Goods, Clothing and Shoes. It is useless to speak of our past conditions, for those who have been • here know of the weakness in this particular line. Now then, our idea is to revolutionize and to promote this side of our business in an up to date way. Illegitimate advertising is criminal to business consequently we are going to begin our course of advertising to advertise and do just what we adver- tise without variation. We have exercised the great- est care in making our selections of merchandise, and after visiting the stores in surrounding towns that cater to high-class trade, we find that we are able to compete in all cases, and in many eases we will more than compete. We have no rent to pay, our fixtures are inexpensive, our clerking system is small compared to city stores, and we believe that with our past practical experience we can satisfy the most refined taste along these lines. Notion Counter Our Notion Counter be displayed with usefUl things too numerous to:mention. New Goods Are Here And More Coming All yard goods in muslins, percales, galateas, outing flannels, flannelettes, sateens, wool serges and everything for this particular line in season. We also have a choice lot of ladies' coats and skirts in the latest cuts and patterns. \ Children's Bearskin Coats and hoods to match. You should see them. Shoes for Men, Women & Children For men we have bought a full line of the famous Hamilton Brown \American Gentleman\ Shoe—all in the newest lasts, both button and lace, not the ordinary but the latest. For the ladies we have placed an order for the Utz & Dunn shoe, which is without question one of the highest grade shoes on the market. It will come in the suede and gun metal, button and other styles to suit. In order to make room in our shoe stock be- fore our new ones arrive we vill make reductions in on a large part of our present stock. \I los is_to ht. t.11e.1 - (1ET THE HABIT Of 111 EL 1 - 1NG ME FACE TO FACE Al' '1•11E PURDN RAD1N(1 C0NTEs'l lieie you save this series of ads. numbered 1 to 10.
