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.

S. Anderson, manager of the Montana Central Elevator Co's. office at Stanford, that concern will start at once to build an elevator here. Mr. Anderson was here last week and after a survey of the acreage was so favorably impressed that he wired the head office of the company at Minne- apolis and received an answer Saturday stating that the company would build at once. The Times is informed that the site for the new elevator is on the west side of l\ lain street, next to the Mc- Caull - Webster Elevator Co.'s coal sheds. This - is an excellent site, bdth for convenience and prominence. The business men of Geyser have been informed at various times this year that an elevator would surely be built if the crop prospects continued good, and the recent rains and fine weather have made an abundant cropl a certainty. The acreage of grain tributary to Geyser this year is variously estimated at from 4,000 to 6,000 acres. Much grain that now goes to other stations will undoubtedly be brought here after the elevator is built, thus increasing the trade and importance of our town. Had it pot been for the wet fall and late spring much more grain, both fall and spring, would have been seeded. The prospects now are that the acreage for next season will be almost doubled. Notice When your watch needs repairing, leave it at the Purdy Trading Co.. at Geyser, who will have it done for you promptly and well. All work guaran- teed. Flax Crop Fine Reports from all parts of the Judith basin are to the effect that the flax crop is looking especially fine, and that record yields are assured. says the I istown Daily News. In the country somewhat distant from the railroad, near Denton and other sections. the acreage is extra large, as flax is more economical to haul greater distances than wheat. Most of the flak is now in bloom and will soon be ripening. Many crops are positively assured even with- out more rain, which is however im- probable. Judith Basin Annual Picnic F. A. Bennett, Prominent Bench. land Farmer and Stockman, 1f'rites Interesting Letter There is no question intthe minds of the people that have visited the Judith Basin Experiment station hut that it is ! a great benefit to the farmers of the Judith Basin and they have shown their appreciation of it by the large attendance at the annual picnic held each year at the station. It will he held this year on the 25th of July. I am sorry it isn't practical as yet to hold the picnic more than one day. I would like to see the time when we could have two or three days devoted to this picnic. My reason is this: There should be one day devoted to the dif- ferent crops that are grown at the sta- tion. I am sure there is a number of people attend the picnic that do not get to visit the crops, for the reason that by the time they get to the picnic and get their dinners the speaking be- gins and they don't want to miss it (and I don't blame them for that. for the speeches are all educational, and the successful farmer these days is the one who reads and listens to lectures being given by men who are devoting their time and talents to the farming (Continued on page 8) Praises the Basin Another Bi Special .,. H. Gray, who recently succeeded Emus W. Hill pre O president of w Offer j )r Two Weeks,,;reat Northern Railway Co.. has been making a trip over the compans sys- tem. He passed through (ieyser Sun- day, on his was from Great Falls to Lewistown. He was much pleased with this part of Nlontana and is cred- ited with the following statement: - I have been absolutely amazed at what I have seen since I entered the Judith Basin. I had heard it referred to frequently as one of the garden spots of the northwest, hut even with that in mind was not prepared for what has been shown to me. It is a won- derful region and possesses a future of such splendid promise that no one can accurately predict is hat will happen here in an agricultural way during the next decade.\ Two Beautiful Turquoise Rings to the Ladies Who Bring in the Most psh in the Next Two Weeks —All Votes Count in the Grand Prize Here's another big special offer for busy workers.
