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.

Answers to such tjUestiOtis as the foregoing will be obtainable soon, when the irrigation census now under way in Montana and North Dakota, under the supervision of 'J. G. Locke, f9 contpletedi ' Headquarters df the district are maintained lb Helena, and Mr. Locke says the work will take un* til next May to complete. About one-third of Montana has beeii c’anvossed. To be precise, the full and complete data ofi about 2,000 irrigation projects has* been secured, and there are about 4,050 more yef to be Investigated. The census has been completed in several Montana coun­ ties, Valley being the latest. This census Is the first of the kind the government has ever undertaken, and it is believed that ' when all the data Is compiled, information will be accessible that will be worth millions of dollars to investors and reclama­ tion engineers. Figures are being secured on every kind of p project, governm-mt, 'Jarey land, corporate, co-operatlv» and indi­ vidual, ranging in size from 60 acres to fifty thousand acres. Information on the various kinds of projects 13 also being secured, the total amount pf water that has been appropriated in Montana for irrigation purposes, and the amount of money expended on lit­ igation over water rights and water troubles. -ti. )t i i t 5 rw» t l 1 \ t ' * | a A L/* * » 4 f « 4 \ I f | MONTANA LOST 20 , 000,000 FEET GE TEMBKH BY FOREST FIRES DURING THE YEAR.

Extensive lectures are now being given in various parts of the state by the president and faculty of the Uni­ versity of Montana. These lectures are usually secured by parties form­ ing a class for the purpose, either un­ der personal invitation, or under the auspices of churches, societies, clubs, lodges, etc. The only conditions to be fulfilled are that the parties order­ ing the lectures assure the traveling expenses and entertainment of the professors giving the lectures. The usual method of doing this Is to sell a sufficient number of tickets at one dollar each for the course to cover the expenses. In this way the organ­ izations may secure instructive 'eft1- tertalnment at a very low cost, and even clear a neat balance, if they care to do so. Wide Range of Topics. The range of subjects offered in­ cludes history, literature, economic?, sociology, psychology, ethics, geology, mineralogy, physics, zoology, botany and forestry. Most of these subject^, are given in courses of three or six lectures, but some are'^given singly. The university has no interest In this matter beyond the extension of Its usefulness to the people of the state, and the enlisting of their in­ terest in Its work. Not a cent of ad­ ditional salary is paid the professors for their efforts in this work, nor is the inepme of the university increased thereby. It is merely th© spirit of the university to interpret liberally Its duty to the people, and to demon­ strate its interest in the civil life of the state. Mail Instruction. Another line of work which the state university is now concerned, is instruction by mail. A large number of subjects can be very well taught by correspondence, and the success of other {institutions in the use of this method demonstrates its practlcabil- It is an opportunity for the man who can mot afford to sacrifice his time and salary to attend school, ahd it is a chance for the busy and am- bitidua man in any walk of life to in- cyease his efficiency by tech n ical’In atruction, or to-braaden -Iiia education afcMF outlook upon =llfe. .
