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.

(ss.- NO. 28 Well Pleased With State Land Sale Geyser Real Estate Dealers, Ranchers and Others Take Advantage of Their Opportunities and Buy Thousands of Acres of Fine Land at Low Prices and Easy Terms The long looked for sale of Cascade county state lands was held last Friday and Saturday at the court house in Great Falls, and out of 41,000 acres offered, 35,319.43 acres were disposed of at a total price of $578,460.72, or an average of $16.38 per acre. The land sale was of particular in- terest to the people of Geyser, sd much of the land being within a radius of a few miles of this place, and a large number of oor citizens were in attend- ance with all the ready money they' could raise to bid in the many choice tracts that were appraised at a very low price. A number of the buyers of this vicinity had an understanding among themselves, it is said, whereby each was to get the land he wanted. without Opposition from the others. Conse- quently, with few exceptions, the land was bought at the appraised value, or close to it. Thousands of acres of this land ly- ing alongside of improved farms that were purchased during the last two years as raw prairie at $25 to $40 per acre, sold at from $15 to $20. Real estate men and others are well pleased that they were able to buy' this land at ket will be a most important feature of the development and growth of Gey- ser in the next few years. The sale is referred to by deputy state register Joseph Oker who con- ducted the sale, as a great success. It is the second largest ever held- in the state, being topped only by the Fergus Mike Bodner. 160 acres, section 7, county ,sale in 1910.
