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.

In almost every case, also the prices prevailing are higher than those of a year ago or - of five years ago The moat notable increase is in cattle. not including milch cows. According te the government's report the number of sin -h cattle on the farm s January I of this year was 894,000, as compared with 791,000 a year ago and 813,000 five years ago. The prevailing price January 1 W&4 00.40, as compared with $49 a yea' ago and $27,60 five years ago. The largt number of cattle in the state five years ago was due to the great numbers o . range stock kept on a few large ranches at that time, most of which ranches ,since have been cut up into smallet farms and are cultivated. The increase in the number of cattle alum ally shown now by the government reports is due chiefly to the fact t hat the nuniber of farmers is increasing rapidly, and nearly all of them ari keeping some cattle in addition to theii much cows. he number is estimated at 3,940,000. Hie figure s for other states for this , rar are not now a railahle. The average !nice prevailing for thee') January I, was fixed by the goy. rnment at $5.10, HS compared with is -I.40 a year ago und $3.44 five years .go. The decrease in the number tit .heep is due partly to the breaking ti if the large raneh is where they hay. ieen kept, the rapid reduction iii till selvage of t he free range where they Save been pastured. and to the feat prevailed in the mind, of many iheepmen that the removal of the tariff 'rout wool would rethwe the price o: wool in this comitry. That hair 'nosed .7roundless so far as the past year was ioneerned, since the price of wool re• amined uniformly high throughout He 4418011.
