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.

They Like Our Flax fiber Montana Flax Fiber Shipped to England— Manufacturers Want Our Product. Montana flax fiber has attracted the attention of the flax spinners of Eng- land and a large consignment of the straight straw has been ordered of the Northern Fax Fiber company of Great Falls. The order comes as a result of samples having been sent by the Northern Flax Fiber company to the concern which has now placed its or : - der for the shiprhent and it comes only after considerable negotiation in which the difference in freight rates bnween here and Ontario, Canada, where the English buyeis have been securing a part of their supply and had been thoroughly investigated. Then on a basis of comparison of values and the added cost of the Great Falls flax be- cause of the long haul, the Northern Flax l'iber company was given the contract for this shipment The Northern company, according to Manager Pearson, will secure the larger portion, if not the entire amount, of the shipment from the ranch of Ben Rumney at Cascade, where the Northern company bought a large tract of flax in the field. It is said to be one of the finest eices of flax and will certainly leave a very favorable im- pression on7the minds of the English spinners when it reaches the destination. The company ordering the consign- ment flax is not an insignificant one by. any means, according to Mr. Pearson. It figures largely in the world business in flax fiber manufacture and that it should decide to pay the increased cost made by the freight charges over the flax they have been receiving from Canada is regarded as very satisfactory evidence of the recognized value of the Montana flax for fiber purposes. The English company taking this order holds 14 gold medals secured in large exposition competitions for linen thread making. Great Falls business men who have Had No License. That Ira Barkley, the RaynsfOrd blacksmith whose death occurred in his city Tuesday noon. wss not tinder the care of a practicing physician for sonic weeks prior thereto, is the basis for an investigation into the causes leading up to his demise which is being made by the authorities. So far no certificate of the cause of death has been provided and as the burial could not be made without such a certificate being issued either by the attending physisian or the coroner the matter was taken up with Coroner Vidal. who examined the body yester- day prior to the holding of the funeral.' Coroner Vidal ascertained that the deatls had occurred at 623 Fourth street south, the home of W. p. Scott, a vendor of patent medicines, and thereupon it was decided to conduct an inquest to bring out the facts in the Jr was learned that the decedent had come to this city about five weeks ago after having been treated for some time by physicians without any benefits and that be . had then gone to the home of Mr. Scott, it being the understanding dsat he there resorted to medicines handled by Mr. Scott. This is a mat- ter which will be inquired into at an inquest to be conducted today., • Coroner Vidal yesterday swore in a jury to inquire into the circumstances leading up to the death of Mr. Bark- , ley and this jury Viewed the bod . i prior to the funeral services. The jury was called to hear evidence last eve- ning at 8 o'clock but certain witnesses! desired had not been located up to' . that time and the hearing was adjourned until 1:30 this afternoon. It is understood that the trouble which resulted. in the death of Mr. hard of the contract se nue(' by the Northern company, a: anno•inced by Manager Pearson are Is pleased with it and accept it as but a hint of what the future holds in possibilities from flax culture in this state. Land values Increase. The recent sale of state lands in Montana shows which way the tide flows. These sales show land that one could hardly give away a few Yeals ago, brought as high as, $38.00 per acre.. In Cascade county 35.310 acres : were sold at a three days sale. The average price paid for this land was $16.38 per acre. Bidders were pres- ent from all parts of the Urnted States. Right here in our own county these land sales bring home to us the sub- stantial proof cf a great advancement. At a recent land sale held in Choteau, our cOunty seat, 16,270 acres were sold, the average price of which was $16.32 per acre. One tract brought $36.00 per acre. To old time settlers who have seen the vast prairies of this section a range for sheep and cattle and an occasional Indian tribe: the figures of these land sales are amaze- ing and many a thought has gone forth why didn't I get more land'' but ! those are troublesome questions now that the land has been discovered as the glfeatest for agricultural purposes in the whole nation. Not 6W this, but in a short time this same land will be selling for $150 and no° per acre. Happy is the man with a Nlontatia home.—Concord Observer. • R. J.
