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.

We are centrally located and easily accessible from all partt of the new district. The Sunlight hopes in the near future to publish a map of the elietrictentbrneed.

Music by Yotte ' Orchestra. iovvvivitiv%44%%06,%444%444\4\, State Will Provide School for !liners It seems that theminers and the mining industry are shout to re- ceive the recognition they have so long been awaiting. Not only has a Federal Bureau of Mines been established, but in at least one Of the Land Grant Colleges, which are supported largely by the Federal Government, &Rifle* for acquiring a knowledge of the rudiments of mining, metallurgy, assaying, chenrietry. geology, and mine surveying are now available', not alone for the high school graduate and the son of the well -to -do, but for the miner, the pros• peetor, the mining, men and for any wtherrinterested in the . ( mine- er he tbeit pre- vious education or station in life. For nearly ten years the State College of Washington has been enaintaining an assayer's short course, beginning immediately after the new year. Last year this course was reorganized in keeping with the new and extensive equipment of the Mining Depart went and is now designated the Winter School of Mines. This may he either a ten or a twelve weeks course. A large number of men from Washington, Oregon, Idaho. and Montana were enrolled last winter and all expressed them- selves as delighted with the work and the benitit they had . gained, a number of Leese men have signifi- ed their, intention of returning this vearto continue their work. last year the earollment included not only a number of grizzled prospectors, but several college graduates, a inechanicel engineer. and a licensed physician of 80 years experience. The winter nionthe are dead ones in the mining omen. Can the prospector or miner spend a couple of months to better advantage than by attendinrueh n course as this. The &OW' of the Winter School of Mine., includes beside, the in- itructore of the Mining Depart- ment, all of whom are trained specialists and graduates of the foremost mining schools, such men as the State Chemist of Wash- ington, the Assistant State Geo- nnd 'other\ of erriell note. In the study of ore deposits, in methods of mining and treating of ores rapid strides are being made, and it is nutnifestly to the interest of the man interested in any way with the production of the metals to keep abreast of the times. There is priSbably no way in which this may be accomplished so thoroughly and with such a seitall expenditure of time and money as by attending such a course as is offered by the Pullman School of Mines. In at booklet descriptive of the course it is stated that \wherever possible the inateuetion ie of a laboratory character, the student being taught to do by doing.\ This IRA practical course design- ed for practieal men and it offers to prospectors, miners, and min- ing men an opportunity - of which we believe they would do well to avail themselves. Sheridan to Have New Newspaper According to a Sheridan dispatch of November 27 to the Anaconda Stencilled the thriving Ruby valley metropolis is soon to have A news- paper, a luxury it has done with- out since R. L. Dewar moved the Enterprises plant to Veber, a little more than a year ago. G Hewitt Browne, publisher of the Perth Progress of Perth, N.

The business men of the townlhave been liberal with their subscriptions and the guarantee has already been raised. NUMBER 43 JEFFERSON VALLEY I EDITORIAL COMMENT . . RICH IN RESOURCES Missouri River Valley Farmers Coming West and Jefferson Valley Should Get Part of This Emigration. • There is not Mach outside of the hot regione we ate told about that is otirinal. About the best we can do is to improve on details, but in talking about JetferRon val- ley we have a subject that is orig. Mid and there is no limit to the details. Emigration is westward and there is no reaeon under the shin- ing sun alms WIriteisallsold -letIs• • wstli6nesta4o4r4ettes seems. amble *hare of this emigration. The Missouri valley is furnishing more people and mote money to the new sections of the treat than any other eastern territory The history of pioneer movement\. always been westward, and as the natural drift of !emulsifiers is along the lines of least resistance it should be from the Missouri river valley to the intermountain and Paeifle coast states. And no sane man will deny that Mrs:Spine has' ample room for these nen homesseekers. Normal movenaInts westward of good 4ttlere are altrais welcome. There in much to he said in favor of Jefferson valley as a fermingzeenter, and it is up to the business men and citizens crf Whitehall to get busy and boost for the town and county. While it is one of the oldest settled val- leys in the state, yet its possibil- ities are preetiesilly un(1eveloped. Demonstration has proved that dry termini is 'n success. nee past season has been a dry one, yet thelarmers realized handsomely from their crops. Aa an instance , among many we elf) cite the dre land farm of T. T. Gates who harvested the Past season 86 - bush- els per acre of Turkey Red wheat. With a favorable season the yield will go much beyond this. There are yet n few free homesteads to be found adjacent to IVIiitehall and the railroad has in reserve a coneiderable acreage of land. Farms can be cut up into smaller tracts and support Oree or four families where they now support hut one. No more ideal !ovation In Montana can be found for di- versified farming. Irrigation in this valley has been tried out toe successful issue. Anytime you find irrigated soil that will produce 60 heehels of wheat to the acre, 80 to 100 hush - el* of oats and 100 wicks of note - toes you have Hell soil, tind • here in Jefiereon valley we • have just thet s kind Of soil. Three crops' of alfalfa hay are harvested - annually'. As a fruit predueer the valley is gradually coming into Prontinenee. Sonic heavy bearing iirehards are found here, as well as prolific - berry crops. Having the splendid mar- IlitAta,-whieh lass hatteen of all these things es turkey egg, the owner of a Jeffer- son valley farm is in. high cloVer. The auger beet indesstry IS one that merits the attention of the business men and petiole of White- hall. It is stated that a part of Jefferson valley has sne acreage which is ideal for the entsceaRful growth of ewer beets. This is an ludiestry which could be, made a revenue producer for the farmer and at the same bring into active use land now lying prectienily idle. It would not only bring revenue to the farmer, but to the town as well. With the growing of stirrer beet., a Roger beet factory wogld he installed. . Wouldn't Meant to much, did you Ray! 'Perhaps nothing great, hist every mouth that is - fed in Whitehall means a little more goods sold by some business, firm. Every family that comes here tnenne another house oreupied. Esetw family that moves • into the valley moans just a -little more heftiness in the 'course of a year toraotne firm. It moans more business for the doctor, law- yer, dentist, the brink and every line of blesinste. • With this thought iu view, get in and boort an lay aside your little mallet. Our 'Minces are destined some day to bring greatness to White- hall and this portion of the county Stock raising has already been an important factor in the tirshuilding of the country and promises to eont rituals a still greeter share of wealth. With every evailable resource et heed to build up the 'Alley and town there is no sensible mem, why every mother's moss of us can't throw in our little mite by giving or ROA' a ord. at every oppor- tenity and thus help to get in new peer& and new capital.
