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.
•\• ' -- . Don't you remember a year ago / how much flax was left in the fields until along about Xmas time pefore being threshed? There was quite a lot, wasn't there? And the grower was not entirely to blame, was he? No, the weather had a deal to do with it. But then, some folks got theirs in before the snow came, and don't you think more could have done so, had they been pre- pared? Why, sure! Well, now— An Snow Early is almost a certainty any year, and as flax is usually late in ripen- ing, it's the MAN who is ready to cut the DAY it ripens that has the advantage. If you have a mower, any make, or a Deering Binder, you can be THAT MAN, because we have in stock— Gaterman's Side Delivery Winrowers (for Mowers) and Deering Flax Attachments (for Binders) that are guaranteed to give satisfaction in harvesting flax.
