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.

GUT OFF TO BE BUILT Says Work Will Be Started Very Shortly on Road From Glendive to Helena— On His Way to Spokane. In his palatial private car, President Howard Elliott, of the Northern Pa,- olflc arrived in Miles City Sunday morning, accompanied by several of­ ficers of the road. The private car bearing the officials arrived here on No. 6, and the officials remained in the city about ten min­ utes and did not leave the platforit} during their stay. President Elliott refused to discuss railroad matters, saying that he had no time to talk of it on Sunday. How­ ever, he stated that work on the Northern Pacific cutoff from Glendlve to Helena by way of White Sulphur Springs would be commenced soon. Ijle stated that the completion of the new road would not. effect traffic on the old line, only in the event of the through trains to the coast. He spoke of conditions in the oast as being favorable and flourishing, and the northwest has a great year ahead. The Influx of settlers will be even greater than in other years, bringing with them their families. President Elliot »waa accompanied me far as Livingston by G. A. Godell, general manager of the Northern Pa- olflc, who waited in that city for the arrival of No. 4, and then returned to Wt Paul. The officials were bound for Spokane to attend the annual ap­ ple show, which will be opened in that city this week. President Elliott will be one of the bright lights at the show and is scheduled to give several talks on the northwestern fruit dis­ trict and what to do with the apple. MAKING r a p i d s t r i d e s THESE DAYS. Information of considerable inter­ est on the manner in which the popu­ lation of Montana has 'tnci'eased and development if the state’s resources has progressed is given in a communi­ cation received by the Independent from a publicity concern of St. Paul, which seeks patronage from this state in a booklet about to be prepared. Among other things it'is-set forth: \During the past year approximate­ ly 100,000 people have found new homes in Montana, and th'e United States land offices reported the largest volume of business ever transacted In any state for the same length of time. More than 36,000 persons filed on homestead land representing tlipus- ands of acres. ' \The cities have expanded and added to their population; towns and villages have taken the place of what were mere sidetracks a year agd: \Railroads are now carrying ori the greatest immigration campaign in the history of the country arte}* the' eyes of the world arO being centered upon Montana. “Nor is all this activity due to out­ side influence, but a large share of the credit should be given to the com­ mercial clubs ahd development or­ ganizations of Montana who through co-operation have succeeded in bring­ ing’ the advantages of their com­ munity before the people. The bulk o f this is through printer’s ink* ;aAd there is no more sure and better wky of interesting people in your locality than the attractive picturing of the possibilities thereof. \The railroads are spending hun­ dreds of thousands of dbllars to ’ad­ vertise Montana and are willing'! and anxious to co-operate with every organization for the upbuilding of the community, and today they offer the (Commercial clubs a channel of dis­ tribution for their booklets that js must valuable. Through the medium of newspapers, magazines and eXlilbit eara. they are securing the names of thousands of persons who may be in­ terested in Montana. “ An attractive booklet issued by your community would give you an advertising representation that would be boundjto be productive, for there is nothing like the individual booklet to focus a specific proposi­ tion.” TO DISTRIBUTE HALF MILLION SUGAR COMPANY WILL PAY\ OUT IARGE SUM TUESDAY TO THE FARMERS FOR BEETS. Approximately half a million dol­ lars was distributed to farmers in the •Yellowstone valley and adjoining coun­ try Tuesday by the Sugar company in the first of two monthly payments for delivery of sugar beets. This is a considerable sum of money to be thrbwn into the channels of trade in one section by one concern on one day. Fully 90 per cent of the beets have been received at Billings factory ac­ cording to the management, and with good weather for another week, prac­ tically every beet in the valley will have been received. The beets will be coming in for the next ten days, howver, in Bmaller or larger lots. Nearly all the beets are out of the ground in spite of the unfavorable wet weather. The absence of frosts has materially aided the'farm ers, in the'harvesting' of the crop. 1 The beets show a high percentage of su^ar and a big yield. In some places, the yield shows from* 18 to 20 tons to the acre which at from $5 to $5.60 per ton would give $100 or more to the acre, which gives strangers and visitors to this part of the state an idea of hte value of land In the Y e l ­ lowstone valley. The yield on the Huntley project has been exceptional this year, show­ ing a material increase. The compa­ ny has three dumpB on the project. The percentage of Sugar is high. Evi­ dently the project is on the road to become one of the best sugar beet sec­ tions in the country. The shipments for the most part o f the company’s product have been into North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Minnesota. The December payment will be made about the middle of the month and probably a little earlier. The two paymnets will aggregate $800,000. DEAR GAL” WANTS COWBOY HUBBY SHE WRITES POSTMASTER JOHN S.

Blacksmith' Shop WoodworK'bciilerShop 1 Prices Right • Mt of red bam Eastern dealers are beginning to appreciate the value of vegetable pro­ ducts from Midland Empire gardens and fields and are making innumera­ ble inauirles about the vegetables grown hero and which are marketa­ ble, says the Billings Gazette. This Is especially true of the pota­ toes. From information received from growers and farmers, it is esti­ mated that 200 carloads of potatoes will move from Billings, Laurel, Eromberg, Joliet and other points in the Midland Empire, east to new mar­ kets. Formerly potatoes grown In Mon­ tana were put on the local market for Home consumption. But scarcity of the best product in the east has ehangpd this particularly as attrac-; live prices hava been offered to west­ ern growers. More potatoes were grown this year' in the Midland Empire than ever be­ fore and the producing of tubers has become . aducratlve business. Heavy ajtdpmeata (Of Yellowstone tubers are being made to the east. For some time the Northern Pacific has featured large Yellowstone or Midland Empire tubers in Its dining « * 0 service. For tubers weighing from one and a half to two pounds ’ more good prices are paid. It la n o tew o rthy that the Northern Pacific,1 ^through Its dining car super tatendent, H. T. Titus, has received mQ?e .tubers o f good size and quality and lnrgreater quantity from this sec­ tion than any other along its line, and It is an excellent commentary on V)ta>pt;oduplng of potatoes In the Mid' laa'd 'Emplre, that the Northern Pa atfic comes to this section when big, [ ggberaiare scarce the- country over. » tj.

T&j; m There is no “beating about the, bush,” to say the least, in a communi­ cation received by r ostmaster J°hn S. Towers from a maiden in Traer, la., and submitted to the Independent. The writer is generally interested in the west, but more particularly in a ranch and confesses without any at­ tempt to \hedge” or \side-step’’ that she is a matrimonial eligible. She is not, from the tone of her letter, exact­ ing in her requirements, but will b& satisfied with some man who is capa­ ble of providing for a wife who in turn is competent to look 1 After her share of the work of keeping the household operating in the proper manner. The communication, which is pithy- and to the point reads as follows: \I take it for granted that you are no correspondence bureau, yet you may be able ta .put me in the way o f getting in touch with apme person in­ terested in ranching. It is said that ./ ‘an honest confession is gobd for the soul,’ so I may.'a.y well tell you that X ahV'.an eastern woman, entirely alone in the world and some man who is capable of providing for me 18 going to get me if he needs a capable wife. \If .you.can put this letter in pos­ session of someone requiring such an. addition to his worldly possessions you will be conferring a favor upon two people. Most respectfully, Martha N. Freeman.” JJ1' \U ,4 . U ! •4, | m _____ _ \ . 1 ‘MtfiMfo’f! ‘ finlicTjttsima ttili 48% I f — — qmo&tUM (,«<••* \ * «*>«»! -. i\ Jit. . IJtV 'r ‘ —1 xrt-s “ a y a ?
