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.

Mr. Higgins heard of it through the Moccasin experiment station and he was able to obtain a few sacks from the Bozeman station last fall. The wheat was highly recommended as to quality and yield. Mr. Higgins planted the wheat on , September 15 and on the same date[ this year the grain was ready to thresh.1 Some extra pains were taken in pre- paring (he ground and the noxious weeds were pulled during . the spring and summer. 1'he result was that the grain growing alongside the turkey red made 52 bushels to the acre while the turkey wheat averaged 22. Mr. Higgins has saved his entire yield of 576 bushels for seed, and is putting in 130 acres himself. The remainder he will divide with those who want it in this vicinity. Those who want a por- . lion will find it at the Missouri River Lumber Co.'s office in Geyser. The Montana experiment station has been testing this wheat at the dif- ferent dry land stations of the state. In bulletin 83 of the station is given a table showing the average yields, farm values, cost of production and net profits per acre of 37 different crops, from all stations, for all years tested. and kharkof stands at the head of the list with the greatest net profit per acre, potatoes alone excepted. The net profit of kharkof per acre is given at $21.30; of turkey red $14.49. - Of the grain crops, and these will always claim the largest place on the dry farm.\ saysthe bulletin. \the fall or Rates for Fair (inc Fare for the Round Trip from Any Point in the State to Hel- ena and Return Next Week An excursion rate of one fare for the round trip from every railroad sta- tion in Montana to Helena and return 11 ill be in force on all railroads in the state during the week of September 23 concession on the part of the railroads Crops of 19_12 ; 1 \ 1- 's . \\ and M n 'chiga. \'II in Many Outfits these sections other crops have been abundant.
