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.

Stillman is Still on The Job • GIVES EXHAUSTIVE DISCUSSION OF THE PRESENT STATUS OF FARM LOAN BONDS The newspapers of the state, the lar• gait and' most influential city dailies as well as the Country newspapers and moat of the farm journals, have freely given wide publicity to the efforts of the Moistens Farmers' Federation to gi action under the Farm Loan Law, and are reetiving the gratitude of the Fed- eration therefor as well as for clean reports of the Lewistown Convention and a 'great deal of wise and instruc- tive editorial comment thereon. It remains only for me to report pro- gress and the present status of out flight to get the Farm Loan Law into succeseful operation. Near the °losing hours of the Lewis- town Convention the State Treasurer appointed Harry C. Cullom, Deputy State Treasurer, to have absolute con• trol of the Department of Farm Loans sad the appointment had the subse- quent endorsement and approval of thr Governor. Mr. Cullom accepted the ap- pointment and went to his home at Alger to put his house in order and find some one in whose care he could leavo his ranch and business. It la expected that within the week he will return to the Capitol and take active eliargo of the Department of Farm Loans. Before the 10th of October the fight was made against the Farm Loan Bonds solely on the ground that the rate of interest was too low, but that trench seem; to have been abandoned end throe other thelekee have been dug and man - ad by * Bdote Ifeelyntrer. theist at 'illaWitiarthe Mallen' of Woodcraft who, on November 111, sub- scribed for $100,000 of these bonds had no intention of finally investing their money in them; and (second) that the law provided no adequate method for the appraisement of the land that would secure the bonds and (third' that the fact of the Legislature setting aside $20,000 as a revolving fund to in- , I A e:;., I L \ fr^ ukk4 - - GEYSER, MOW., DEC. 3. 1915 NO. 4 sure investors of the immediate pay- ment at maturity of every installment of - prin:ipal and interest was unconati- t lona): The first is ft \bogie man, - a figment of the Imagination, etnijured up to af- fright other inv'estois.

MEASURERS OF FARM EFFICIENCY There are certain factors on which the success of a farm- burliness usually depende.. From these if is usually pos- sible to'il•termine not only the good points in a system of farming but also its deficienclee. The latter being known the method af improving the system becomes evident. On a great majority of farms. success is- primarily dejendent on three impor• talk factors. These are (1) the size tIg• farm business; (2) the yielda of the crops and the returns per animal, representing tho quality of the farm bunineee; and (3, the diversity of the burliness. of (levee many other things have their inflooenee, but the farmer whose biteinees is efficient in these three respects is generally suecessful. Those farms that Kr' excellent in none ef hese respects almost universally :ail. Those deficient in one or two may sue- eed, tout their chances of success are Tree'!\ lessened.
