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.

Montana is going to come into her own when the tide of continue to next year immigration pours into the Northwest, according tikthe mass of interested inquiries that were made at the Montana section of the Great Northern Railway booth during the two weeks of the United States Land Show in Chicago, from November 23 to December 8. Two hundred thousand visitors passed through the turnstile at the Land Show and the number of people who asked for literature giving information about Montana land made the immigration agents of some of the other sections of the country envious. The free homestead lands got the greater part of this call. Thousand of people who are weary of the city grind have decided to get out into the open where they can do more than eke out an existence. And Montana is the magnet for them. Twenty thousand Montana booklets were distributed by the agents of the Great Northern Rail- way and this literature did not go into the hands of people who are in the habit of dropping advertising matter upon the floor. The bulk of these booklets was given to interested visitors who made inquires especially con- cerning opportunities in Montana. The products from Montana soil which were shown in the Montana section of the Great Northern booth opened the eyes of many callers, more especially those who have been wont to look upon Montana chiefly as a grazing country. The exhibit of big potatoes, grains and other products served as a valuable missionary factor correcting the erroneous ideas oi this class of people. They went away with an exalted impression of the Treasure State. E C. Leedv. General I mmi- gration Agent of the Great Northern Railway says there is every indication that there will be a big tide of home - seekers pass through the Twin City Gateway for Montan points next I he delegation ef Megan Indians from the li!ackfoo: Reservation did their share in advertising their native state of Montana at the United States Land show. These Indians. who were the guests of Louis W. Hill, chairman of the Ward of directors of the Great Northern railway, were the cial guests of many clubs and iicieties of Chicago during the Land Show. They also called upon the mayor and other high city officials, thereby becoming the agents of con- siderable publicity for Montana and Glacier National Park. The Cowboy band which James Shoemaker headed from Riverside Ranch, near Helena, also contributed very largely to the publicity campaign for Montana at the Land Show. This unique musical organization was re- ceived with enthusiasm wherever it Oayed in Chicago. The cowboys were the guests of Louis Hill on this A Literary Society for Geyser. A large number of people have ex- pressed their desire for an old fashioned literary society, or lyceum, whose membership shall embrace all who are willing to attend and take part. The programs will consist of music, dec- larations, debates, and probably an occasional play. We believe that such an organization will meet a long ; felt need. Its success depends upon the mutual cooperation of young and old. riday evening. January 24th is probably as favorable a time to organ- i . te as any other. There will be a t ee sodlt the Congregational church Friday evening. everyone invited, the time and place for holding the sessions of the society can then be settled. Mr. Lyng has offered free use of the hall if the church is not sufficiently large, the latter place will probably he the most comfortable. as the building is, warm throughout the day. Come! Friday evening, prepared if you can. to speak, sing or play, in an emempor- raneous program. C Joughlin Bros Sprint:. . & Co. Name of Store.
