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.

Mr. Holden was in town yesterday and was inter jetted by the Tribune. He said: \We threshed our grain at my farm yeaterdsy. fhe grain didn't amount to a great deal, but was as good ea we expected considering the Very dry weather that we have had for a time during the summer and also the fact that the grain was grown on ground . that had been cropped continuously. The oats only went about 12 bushels to the acre and, as I have said, were grown on ground that had been cropped last year and in which no moisture had been con- served. The maccaroai — wheat, which was grown on the Rattle kind of ground and which cost practically nothing to put in. as we only disked the ground and then drilled it in, went 16 bushels to the acre. My pea crop was good considering the little atten- tion that was gil'en the crop. About 1 bushels of peas to' the acre were obtained. \But the potato crop is where we shine. We put in 75 bushels of potatoes and did not neglect to cultivate the crop; harrow the ground and conserve the moisture at all times such work was needed. We have been rewarded by get- ting a yield that will average close to 215 sacks per acre and my sacks are large ones, too. They are selling at a dollar a sack now. but I will prnbably store a lot of them in a cellar that I am building and get it better price later.\ Mr. Holden's chop will sell at the present market price for about $16,000, which isn't bad, we'll all adinit. Ile says that the splendid success he hits had in growing potatoea on the dry land under the Campbell system the past two years has greatly encouraged others to take up dry land farming and that during the past week or ten days, or since -the announce- ment was made that a large area of land on the bench has been de- clared onen for filing upon under the new homestead law. permit; ting one to take 320 aares us a homestead, nearly all the land in his vicinity has been tiled' upon. Mr. Holden further stated that he and hi: associates have already broken about 1,200 acres of land on the bench for next year's crop and that there is more for them to break than can possibly be broken with the steam outtit between now and the time that the ground freezes up. lie stated that all those breaking ground for next year, so far its he has heard, are going to \!roW plitakes and noth- ing else and he stated that there would be at least 1,200 acres more land cultivated under the Camp- bell system an the bench next yeat than was 'Cultivated this year, which means that between 1,500 and 2,000 acres of beneh land will next year be put into potatoes. The men interesting theInselves in the dry land farming . and potato growing are going to unite in pet- ting in one variety of potatoes, which will be the variety best adapted to dry land farming as proven such by experiments. They are planning to construct large cellars in which their crop may be shared and held for good prices and it is their intention to grow ao many potatoes and create such a market that bum from all over the conntrY Wirrnte here to make purchases in large quantities.—Dillon Tribune. hill Room for Firoler's Sod, There is still' room for more farmer's sons in the School of Agriculture Course, offered by the Montana Agricultural College at Bozeman. However. the big class of \One Hundred\ .is rapid- ly filling up, as. already sixty young Men lair° registered. When we consider that the begin- ning of the course is 'dal a month away, this large early registratidn is rather remarkable. By the time that the course begins, we feel sure that there *ill easily be one hundred students in this course. No doubt Many young men and; boys over the State have been keeping in touch with the experi- ments with grains And grasses etc., are under the superviaioh Of the Agricultural College. At the Fergus couhtY farm, a theeting was held, where over 1,000 farm- ers ahd their families Attended. Governor Norris who spoke at that Meeting declared that the Agricultural College and Experi- Milk Station were doing splendid things for Montana's Agritailtural Developement. No young than, who wishes to undertake any kind olAgricultural work, should be witlitint the training that the College gives. If the young man or boy wishes to take up stock work, a very practical course in judging, breeding, feedini and managing stock will greatly help hint. If he wishes to learn dairy farming a thorough study of the handling of dairy colt's, milking machines, separators etc., will make it:easier for hitn. With the grains and grasses a great deal of knowledge can gained in breeding grains and seed selection. In the work with soils and orchards . etc., a short course may save rilany dol- lars expense. Under the four betide, Stock judging, Dairying, Agrdnomy and ercharding, the student may take that which he will need most. Every lecture is fdlldwed tiP by practical work in the laboratories for the students learn to do by doing. 0 A Farmers - course in steam and the development of the Centnd- Wier irrigation project ; by which 150.000 acres of the best range land in the state will be tranaNarie- eid into irrigated farms. Of this f i teni the first Fegregation of 70,- en to the students together with a practical course in fare black- smithing. Students who enter this collets Must be eighth grade graduates otherwise they will have to pass an entrance exarnination. The Agricultural College is a State School and therefore is pine - deafly free, with the exception of a 'small tuition free and some minor laboratorY fees. Besides board and keep, $15.00 will cover the ex pen*. The coarse lasts for six months and,board tind room may be 'liver- ed for from 118.00 to $96.00 per month.
