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.

4 VOL. 2. GEYSER, MONT., JUNE 13, 1912 NO. 13 Win from Raynsford Geyser Ball Players Defeat Rayns- ford Browns 15 to 10— Game Called on Account of Rain For the second time this season the Geyser base ball nine has gone into battle on the home diamond and both times they have come forth victorious. In each of these games the weather and other conditions have been such as to give the local team no great credit for victory. Sunday the Raynsford players arrived and, flushed with their recent victory over the Ramblers, and accompanied by a large crowd of rooters and fans, made no secret of the fact that they intended to add another slaughter to their record, but nature intervened with a heavy shower that cut the game short in the seventh inning, when the score stood 15 to 10 in favor of the home team. The game was called at 12:30 and with the visitors at bat what promised to be a very interesting game vvis started. Proper appeared to be in fair- ly good form and the first man up to bat made three vicious swings at the sphere and then made way for the next. First baseman Watson was the next and connected with the ball for a high fly to center field. The fielder muffed, allowing the runner one base, and managed to slip in home before the next two batters fanned. First baseman Frank Higgins was first at bat for the locals and made a' good, clean hit. He arrived at first. and had no trouble stealing second. Proper and Hruby each hit the ball in turn and brought Higgins home, leav- the score one and one at the end of the first inning. In the second 'and third innings Raynsford was unable to score while Geyser made two in the third. In the fourth, with bases full, a wild throw from first to home was responsible for giving Raynsford three scores, while Geyser didn't get a run. Up to this time honors were fairly even, but the rain, which had been threatening for same time, now began to fall, making the ball rather slippery and hard to control. Proper was hit , badly in the first half of the fifth and six more tallies were counted for the. Browns. Geyser came back with three in the last half and shut the vis- itors out in the first half of the sixth. In the last half ot the sixth the merry- go-round started right. Pitcher Fish was unable to control the ball at all, and every one soaked it for all he was worth, making nine scores. The Raynsford boys took one more turn at bat, but Proper had recovered his old (Continued on page 4) President Signs Three -Year Bill The Borah -Jones three-year home- stead bill became a law this morning when it was signed by President Taft, in the presence of a delegation of west- ern congressmen, says a Washington dispatch of Friday, June 7. After signing the bill, the President turned to those present and said: \Gentlemen I am glad you were here and saw me fix my name to this bill making it a law, if, within a few days we hear from certain places that this bill became a law without my sig- natnre, yo will bear witness that such report is untrue, and that I have, in your presence, shown my belief in the wisdom of reducing the burdrn on homesteaders.

SHAW The large amount of moisture in Northwestern soils brings with it a temptation that may result in harm. Because the land can be plowed easily on account of the more than average amount of moisture in the soil the danger is present that flax sowing will be too long continued. Unduly late sowing brings with it two dangers. One is that the crop may be hurt by dry weather that may follow the sow- ing and the other is that the crop may be hurt by frost before it matures. It Big Clips Are Sold At an Advance of About Two Cents Per Pound Over Last Year's Prices Wool buying has begun in Great Falls. \Six sales were made public this week, all of them contracted for on the backs. Rather surprising, too, is the announcement that the prices range around 20 cents. However, the the choicest clips have brought this price. \lite clips purchased for this money are those which always sell high early in the season. The J. B. Long & Co. clip has been sold to Eschleman. of Jeremiah Williams & Co., for 20 cents. The Long clip is the second largest in the state and runs over 1,000,000 pounds. Last year this clip brought 18 cents. Kenneth Hutchins, buyer for Hecht, Leibinan & Co., is credited with mak- ing all five of the other sales reported. He purchased the Long Bros. clip of 300,000 pounds, the John H. Burke clip of 200,000 pounds, the James Elliott clip of 300.000 pounds, the Armstrong Livestock company's clip of 70.000 pounds, and the Shonkin Ranch Co.'s clip of 80,000 pounds, all at 'the price of 20 cents or near that. is true at the same time that a good The Rea Brothers of Billings, it is yield is possible from a late sown crop, reported, sold to a Boston dealer for But since there is hazard in sowing it, 19 or 19 1 / 2 cents their clip of (Ivo r why should such hazard be incurred? 1,000,000 pounds, and it is also report - to follow ed that the Bair clip of that section has Will it not he a safer course to summer fallow the land to prepare it for sowing to winter wheat, where the conditions favor that crop, and to make it ready for spring grain where they do not?

Shearing has commenced on most of the sheep ranches and it is probable that there will be little, if any, buying until after the shearing season is over. The wools which have been purchased thus far are the choice clips and while growers hope to see prices remain as have been obtained thus far, it is by no means certain that the buying of the past week will govern prices for the future. •=0.1•MII••••••• PURDY TRADING COMPANY Start the Opening of Summer with a new, stylish, made -to -measure suit—place your order now and you can get it in time for the Fourth of July.
