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.

All art urged to bring in a peck of seed, which will be returned to the owners after the•the contest. To prepare the flax, run it through \ a fanning mill twice to take out all the: socks, chaff and light. as aly seeds. The seed will be judged by an ex- I pert from the agricultural college who will discuss the flax shown and answer all questions. Carloads to Winter Pasture in Next 7'hree Weeks During the next heavy shipments of dled by the Great part of thp state in three weeks some sheep will be Ilan - Northern in this the transferring of the big flocks of J. B. Long & Co. from their stuomer range to their win- ter range. says the Great Falls Trib- une. During the spring, summer and fall, the Long flocks have been grazing on leased pasture on the Fort Peck Indian reservation in the northeastern part of the state and these are now to be distributed to the various ranches owned or controlled by the Long corn - pan) in different parts of this section. The first shipment will be made next Friday, consisting of a trainlowl to be delivered at Power station north- west of this city' on the Shelby line. From that time on the sheep %%sill be loaded as rapidly as possible for deliv- ery at Conrad. Power, Swift: Spion Kop - and Merino. It is expected to hare the last of the sheep 'loaded by the 20th of November. • The larger portion of the sheep will be loaded at Stanford and at Power; those unloaded at Powe to be placed upon the Beach ranch near Augusta . recently purchased by J: B. Long & Co. The exact Dumber of sheep to be handled is not known here, but it is expected to load an average of 220 • head to the car and this would figure a total of 61,600 head, as the company has ordered 280 cars. Coal Strike Settled \ The coal strike - in Eastern British Colton - Ina and Alberta which so corn- pletel/ paralyzed the coal business of that !sect\ ion, and more recently had menaced this section of the rnited States with a coal famine because of urgent efforts of the Canadian peo- ple to get the product of the mines throughout this part of Montana and the Wyoming district is at an end. There will be no more strikes in that section before March 31. 1915. it is confidently believed, as the new agree- ment extend until that date, and all Alberta and other sections of- western Canada are rejoicing. • The Milwaukee surveying crews, that have been at work all summer on the Lewistown -Great Falls extension have at last been successful in finding a very / satisfactory and feasible route through the Arrow Creek country, which has been the chief obstacle that had to he surmounted, says the Lewis- town Daily News. According to au- thorita , ive advices received in Lewis- town, the route is far better than any that had been previously fonnd, and that it is better than had been ' , antici- pated could be fonnd. 1 his is encour- aging news, as it means that the Mil- waukee railway will be enabled to carry out its plans of connecting the two cities by rail, and of completing the proposed link in its new line from near Melstone to Great Falls. Before quitting the field, it is under- stood the Milwaukee surveyors will run another preliminary line. Already they have run about three lines from the present Lewistown branch through Arrow Creek. These leave Glengarry and from points slightly west of the Beaver creek divide. The fourth pre- liminary to be run will start direct from Lewistown and will follow Spring creek down to its confluence with the Judith; thence down that river to Sage creek, when the line will cut up from Sage creek and across in a north westery direction through the Denton country. This route it has been determined can be run in such a way as to pass through the grade over Arrow creek which has been found highly satisfac- tory. The line leaving Glengarry is also practicable to pass through the Arrow creek grade. It will thus lie between the Lewistown and the Glen- garry route, with the chances favoring the Lewistown route, say railroad men ss ho are versed in the matter. The people of Lewistown would like to see the new line leave directly! from I,ewistown. although of course the main line would pass through this city at any event, even though it went west on the present track as far as -Glengarry. .A. G. Baker is the engi- aiier in charge of the Milv aukee forces. Three big crews are in the field. It is understood that the reports that have been made by the field en- gineers to the head officials of the Milwaukee have been very satisfactory. and that the results of the surveying done this summer are far better than they had expected, being much ahead of those of last year.

Wants New District Geyser Commercial Club Appoints S. C. Purdy to Interview Co. Supt. of Schools A well attended special meeting of the Geyser Commercial Club was held Wednesday evening and appointed S. C. Purdy delegate to wait on County Superintendent McAnnely and ascertain from her the reason for delay in grant- ing the new Geyser district as agreed, and arrange, if possiblf, for a longer . term for the Geyser school, which is to be closed on Nov. 3d, on account of the lack of funds to pay teacher hire. This year the pupils have had only i five months schooling, and now at a time when it is most convienent for ;those living on ranches to attend they I are coldly informed that school is closed. 1 Efforts have been made for some !time to get the district divided so that ;the people of this town and country im- mediately surrounding will be enabled !to look after their school interests more closely, but it seems to be impossible to get the County in the matter.

J. H. Frye of Spion Kop, and 11,•L J. Nulliner of Raynsford both secured $7.25 per hundred for their steers, the top for Monday's sales last week. Peter Vann and Mrs. Annie Van- den euvel of Geyser and Jack Skel- Superintendent to Sr t i i fStan m fo a r r d ket thatlt ,sold cattle ,tmh on t $ Wed- nesday's7.35 a hundred, the high price for the week. The Bowles Live Stock Commis- sion Co., to whom a large percentage of the cattle from this section were consigned, report the following sales: M. J. Nulliner of Raynsford, five i cars; steers, weighing 1,330 pounds, ! $7.25; cows weighing 1,181 pounds at .$5.10; and some light 900 pound Iheifers at $4.75. Pat O'Hara, of Geyser had six cars, the steers weighed 1,217 pounds and sold for $6.55; heifers Weighing 920 pounds at $4.85; light cows weighing 760 pounds at $4.75., Peter and Robert Johnson of Great Falls, who shipped from Spion Kop, had a total of six cars.. The Peter s Johnson steers sold at $7.15, averag- ing 1.288 pounds, and the cows at $4.70; the Robert Johnson steers av- eraged 1,283 pounds and sold at $6.50. John Frye of Spion Kop had a sin- gle car of cattle on the market, all of the steers selling at $7.25 and some cows averaging 1300 pounds at $5.10. Frank Sheldon of Geyser had two cars of steers weighing 1171 pounds which sold for $6.40 (Continued on page 2) Bank for Moccasin The probability that Moccasin will be the junction for the Lewistown branch of the Great Northern has put new life into the citizens of that promising little burg. They have de- cided to have a bank as the first requi- site to that stable prosperity which is expected to materialize in the near future. A. C. Drinkard of Lewis- town, and L. V. Jackson of Moore, associated with an eastern bank and local stockholders in the vicinity of Moccasin have organized a state bank, articles of incorporation_ having..been filed. Mr. Drinkard will probably be elected president and Mr. Jackson will act in the capacity of cashier. The weather of the past week has interfered to quite an extent v ith 'the work of . plowing, especially on sod. where the frost has penetrated the ground to a depth of several inches. Wednesday morning was said to be the coldest so far this fall when tern - pet -attires as low as 3 below zero were reported hereabout. The day turned out beautiful, however, and it is hoped that a stretch of fine fall weather for which Montana is noted may be forth - price. coining.
