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.

Already 27 counties have announced that they will make exhibits at the state fair this fall—the best fair ever to be held in Montana—on appropria- tions made by their county commis- sioners, under the law allowing such appropriations up to the sum of $1,000. Now is the time for the other coun- ties to plan their exhibits. It has been demonstrated that $390 will provide a prize-winning exhibit, if the money is spent upon the judicious collection of materials, and a hustling, well -quail. fled Mall is put in charge. No county can afford to overlook the state fair as the one great land, agricultural and livestock advertising agency in the state. The efforts Sec- retary It. S. Skinner Is making to ex- cel former state fairs, and some of them have been dandies, will surely make it the big noise. The noise will be heard all over the United States by land buyers and pros- pective settlers. They will be coming hero in thousands every year now for some years, and counties that make ex- hibits at the fair will have something Immediately available and tangible to attract their attention, and conclu- sively demonstrate what the farms of the county will do. It will pay. NIontana's winnings at the Panama - Pacific exposition at San Francisco, in- cluding three grand prizes and many medals. made the state's splendid re- soarces and fertile lands known.

FARM WOODLOTS FREQUENTLY OVERLOOKED OLD WOODLOT, UNGRAZED—NOTE YOUNG TREES WHICH WILL MAKE FUTURE TIMBER CROP. (From the United States Department of Agriculture.) A permanent woodlot is an essential part of a well-equipped farm. In heav- ily wooded states especially farmers are likely to overlook this fact and recklessly cut, misuse, or clear up their forest areas. It does not occur to them that it may be 'advisable to al- low thrifty, immature timber to ma- ture rather than to remove it at a loss; and that It Is often better to practice intensive agravulture on areas already cleared than to clear additional areas which are in growing Umber. The one direct economic reason for the use of land as woodlot is that on some areas timber Is the most profit- able crop that can lie grown. This, of courses is especially true of poor and romgh lanti. Where all the land is adapt :dole to more valuable crops the woedlot shoulol occupy only a small part of the farm area. Tie.r are a great many indireet con- siderations, however, which justify the maintenaiwe of a pet•maie.nt woodlot on the farm. The important ones, a number of whit -hi are usually active In any particular case, - nee: (1) For con- venience of home use for fuel, posts, and other farm neols; (2) lIS it wind- break for buildings or crops; Ga s es_ a shelter for stock ; (4) for protection of land from erosion ; (5) to furnish work for Men and teams iluri rig spare time; (0) for purely esthetic reasons The farmer too often considers only the local and immediate uses of a woodiot, overemphasizing theta and disregarding other functions that might ultimately prove to be inure im- portant. For example, where agricul- ture is entering heavily wooded re- gions, timber is likely to be considered only an Menu:brans.... In long -settled farming regions, where most of the timber has been cut end only a few trees are left, the farmers may prefer to save the remnant for tie. shade It gives to stock or buildings or because it improves the appearance of the farm. In prairie country. protection to grain croope orchairds. stock, or buildings, together with service as a elITIVelli cut supply of wood for farm ('I itlStttmipt it in, may cause owners to piece a high value on their wood- lois. In mountainous regions Iletlir thickly populated manufarturing cen- ters the w000llot may loe valued for its wood -producing cup:trey ailmw. The temptation is to forget In' underesti- mate those funetions white' are not obviously and immediately beno.lieini. As a matter of fact, the less offivione functions are often the very ones which are likely to) prove of the. great- est value in the bong run. For e•xrun- ple, many of the Minte.sota farmers who totally cleared their lands: would he glad to have their woodiots back again for protective and falter pun- pose.s ; and farmers in the Central states already regret the abuse which WOODLOT OF MIXED GROWTH—LARGE TREE IN FOREGROUND SHOULD BE REMOVED TO GIVE YOUNG TREES MORE LIGHT. end for recreation purposes, for which rensoone Mena. at farm eel' a well -lo - rated grove of trees, however small, will sell for more than one without. Thus a w000llot may at the same time increase the general prosperity of the farm, add to its comfort as a home, ii ml enhance its eleue as an invest- ment. The reason farmers have not given as full consideration to the woodlot Rs It deserves is that they have not hind comph•te enough knowledge ,if the market possibilities of various wood - lot products and of the rate of growth end possible yields per acre of prop- erly cared for stands of different spe- cies and ages, or that they have consid- ered only the present need and have not looked ahead. Special attention Is now being given by the forest serv- ice to these questions and to the ques- tion of improve.d methods of market- ing. Information about the uses of various kinds of wood and the markets for them has been compiled for n num- ber of states. In some cases this in- formation has been published by the State Foresters in 1Voolol-Using In- dustry Reports and in Handbooks for Marketing Woodlot Products. A. new bulletin prepared by the forest serv- ice (Farmers' Bulletin No. 715, Meas- uring and Marketing Woodlot Prod- ucts) is a handbook of practical in- formation for farmers regarding the measurement of timber, the forms In which woodlot products are sold, the methods of sale, anti the way to find 1 market. Another just published (Farmers Bulletin No. 711, The Care ind Improvement of the Woodlot) .ontains Information ?Mended to as- tist the farmer in managing his wood- ot so that it will yield the best quai- ls , and (he largest amount of Umber of which ht Is caoable. has robbed their vi toil of the ca- pacity to yield a wottd I Top of inereits- ing value on the pmrer soils of the farm. It is, therefore, greatly to the interest of all farmers to (\insider not. only the present but the possible future usefulness of a farm woodlot. UNFAILING WAY OF SPREADING DISEASE Dirty Water Pan Is Menace to Poultry Flock—Vessel Should Be Cleaned Every Day. How often do you clean up the wa- ter pans In your henhouse?: You ought to clean them every day. For a dirty water pan Is the surest way of spread- ing disease throughout your flovie The best way of handling water In the poultry house is to keep it In a cheap, flat washbasin that (*lei be easily cleaned and refilled. It always pays to take care of water tanks. You have to fill them, and the few min- utes which you devote to each pan In cleaning is not lost. Place the open basin on a box some 8 or 10 Inches high and perhaps 18 Inches square, and keep n runway for it. This keeps it from filling up with dirt and straw from the floor and the hens do not climb Into it In drink- ing. Then put the box end basin In a sunny corner ef the house away from the roosts and nests, so that no dirt can fall Into it from above. Clean It and refill it with clean, fresh water every day and you will have put the disease germs to ffight trideffidtely.
