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 Dillon is getting re- sults from her recent action in subscribing a ten -thousand -dollar bonus to secure the building of the Gilmore & Pittsburg railroad in- to that town this year. Real es - tate values are soaring from twen - ty-five to one hundred per cent, and people are going to Dillon and locating bench hinds east of the' town to file on for dry farming purposes. lavi Dillon ' s action that induced thera s people to locate these hinds; and the making of the new hbines is a benefit JD whicb. the home maker and the town have mutual interests. The completion of the the railroad into Dillon will also add to the town's population by bringing many railroad em- ployees into the place, as it is to be a terminal point, and the per- manent payroll will be of incalcu- lable value to the Place in (ut- ure years. Dillon may congratu- late herself that the public spirit and foresight of her people were equal to requirements when occa- sion presented the opportunity for them to demonstrate the fact. There is scarcely a doubt that the Gilmore at Pittsburg will be built from Dillon to Twin Bridges end, via the Ruby Valley branch, connect with the Northern Pacific at Whitehall—if not this year, soon. And while we congratulate Dillon upon her good fortune. we are firm in the conviction that her neighbors will share in the pros- perity brought to her, confident that the completiRn 2fibe road will do more to accelerate the - de- velopment of the resources of the Jefferson valley than anything else ever has. Another year should see a great advancement along all lines in this section, as well as thruout the length and breadth of the Treas- ure State. A tidal wave is setting toward Montana, and its crest may reach us this year. Thousands of horpeseekers e ill be looking for homes. This is of interest to every resident of the state and of this community. ''There is a tide in the *Fairs of men,\ etc., and also in the affairs of nations, elates and communities.

Let tis take the tide \at its flood\ and work harmoniously for the good of the entire community; for the good of the new -corner; for the good the old-tiMer; , for - the good of each and every individual.

Do it Now. The farmer should hustle around in early spring, order new tools and fix up old ones. In many lo- calities the blacksmith is overbur- dened in repairing farming tools just at the time when the tools are needed for spring work. Not having implements ready for work at the first opportunity means a loss of several days in getting in a crop. Let us be on hand with the seetson. .

Spokane, Wash., Feb. 20. --- That the efforts of the people of Monta- na in essist:ng the residents of neighboring eiktes in the upbuild- ing and development of the North- west are appreciated in Spokane is eves:kneed in the sentiments voiced by Major Edwits,A. Smith, editor of the Twice -A -Week Spokesman - Review of this city in an editorial in a current issue of that journal. He writes as follows: \With its fine .valley lands for •••• fruit growinos With its broad val- ley lands for general farming un- dersiUStiae, with it, atassikesei areas to be brought under cultiva- tion by dry hireling methods, Montana is waking up to her agris cultural poasibi I it les. \The agricultund college and t xperiment station at Bozetnan are taking advantage of this awaken- ing, and are seeking not only to encourage but to guide and direct the movement along sane and pro- fitable lines. \Piofeesor L. B. ',infield, di- rector of the state experiment station, declares that the most im- portant point in the settlement of new lands is in getting people started right; telling them what crops to expect first while they are getting on their feet. 'The railroads are cooperating in the movement. For the two years the state legisInture has np- proprieted$11,000 toward farmers' institutes andother extension work, the Northern Pacific reileity has given $5,000. the Great Northern railway $2,000 and the Nlilivnukee railroad ga,ovo, melting $20.000 in all.\ Violation of the Law.
