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 VOL. 2. • _ Finding the Best Wheat Process of Determining Who Will Win the $5,000 Prize to Given Away at Minneapolis How the judges will find the best five bushels of wheat in the American Northwest and determine who is en- titled to the $5,000 prize offered at the NorthweFtern Products Exposition in Minneapolis in November is told in a booklet recently issued by the North- west Deielopment League. Three judges will be selected from without the seven states by the presi- dents of the agricultural colleges and presidents of the grain exchanges. .ludging will be in three ways—one- third on the points of the accepted seed score card; another third by points gained in a milling and baking test; while one-third of the possible 100 points will be awarded for the yield per acre. Here is about the way wheat is judged: Twent;-five points on weight per bushel and 5 points on uniformity of sample; 15 points are allowed on variety characters, three of these being on color; 10 on purity, which means the kernels must be true to the type of the breed represented; two points for kernel shape, which varies with the breed. Thirty points are allowed for vital- ity. five of these being for lustre; 15 points for plumpness, as all kernels should be well rounded, having no sharp corners and the creases well closed; seven points, are on odor, the samples must be free from foul smell. Twenty-five points are allowed for market condition; 10 of these to cover weed seed; three for dirt and dust; two for injured kernels; five for smut and five the condition_ of the bran. All broken and scabby kernels will count against the wheat. According to the rules governing the $5,000 wheat contest to be held in connection with the Northwestern Exposition in Minneapolis Nov. 12- 23, those who intend to compete for the prize should give notice as soon as possible that bin room may be provid- ed for each exhibitor. All samples must consist of five bushels of threshed grain and from five to ten sheaves which are front six to ten inches in diameter and front the same field. These must be sent pre - (Continued on page 4) Board of Health To File Complaint August 15 Set as Final Limit for Dairies, Restaurants, etc., to Procure License The following, received from Dr. T. D. Tuttle, secretary of the state board of health, will be of interest ti, many of our readers: \Many people are violating the law the state by conducting places of busi- ness for which a state license is re- quired without having secured such license. \Section 10.. Chapter 130, Session Laws of 1911, requires that any per- son conducting any bake shop, confec- tionery. cannery, packing house, meat market, slaughter house, dairy, restau- rant, hotel, dining car or lunch coun- ter in the state, secure a license for such place of business from the state Board of health at Helena. \Section 6 of the same chapter pro- vides that any person who sells or of- fers for sale any milk or cream is con- ducting a dairy, and is therefore re- quired to have a license. Licenses are issued without cost, but application must be made on proper blank form. which can be secured by written re- queit of the State Board of Health at Helena. At a meeting of the State Board of Health on July 15, 1912, the secretary was ordered to file complaint against each and every person in the state con- ducting any business mentioned above, who has not secured a license from the State Board of Health on or before , August 15, 1912.\ - ••••••• • • - .14 • • z \ GINSER, -MONT., JULY 25, 1912 GEYSER'S NEW CATHOLIC CHURCH .•••••• .0. /6 . & (0. • \‘ p. NO. 19 Catholic Chull,ch Dedicated That religion is a practical every= day part of the makeup of the citizens of Geyser and surrounding country was evidenced by the congregation of all creeds that gathered Sunday to wit- ness the dedication by Right Reverend Mathias C. Lenihan. bishop of Great Falls, of our most handsome edifice. St. Anthony of Podua Catholic church. Dedication services took place at 10 a. m., followed by high mass, cele- brated by pastor Reverend Francis C. Dotes, of Belt. after which the bishop administered the sacrament of confir- matton to a class of four young people and addressed the large gathering in his forceful and pleasing manner, dwelling at length on the part religion should play in man's every day life. and advised his hearers of all creeds against godlessness. The bishop in closing assured the people of the high regard for the citizens and others who had made the erection of this building possible and hoped in the near future to be able to send a resident pastor. Owing to the large number of new churches being erected and the limited number of priests in this diocese, it is now necessary for one pastor to min- ister to the wants of three and some- times four congregations. At a meeting held after the services, over which the bishop presided, a fund of nearly $1,000 cash was raised which almost wipes out the outstanding in- debtedness. In the meantime the trustees are giving their attention to laying plans for the erection of a par- ish house and the laying out of a suit- able burial plot.
