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.

It is important that the millers be present. One object of the convention is to bring the . milling interests and their buying agencies into ilti'ecr relationship, show- ing the advantages to the millers of me - curing their supplies of grinding stuffs through the Co -Operative Exchange where they can obtain the virgin wheat direct, It is the aim of the convention managernedit to have many of Ow rep- reaentetives of the milling interests on the platfotim dirang the 'three days of the convenficin and have the co-operatise idea presented to the delegates from their standpoint. It is hoped that Millers' Day may be inauguarted so that 0111\ day of the three may be de- voted exclueively to the milling inter- ests. There is not a single logical rea• son why the millers cannot anti ought not be ntembe , •s of the Equity Exeliange, even thcaagh they have other affiliatioue.
