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.
B OOST, and the WORLD boosts with you; Knock,and you knock alone VOL. 1 NO. 11 THE $2.00 THE YEAR STAY STANFORD, 'F.ERGUS COUNTY, MONTANA, SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1909 *100 111E YEAR 112111.11 I .1 ,11, 9 .11,.11(.N 111*, RECOGNIZES SI.A.11 - 1V( li.a) Workmen are now engaged in setting polts in the city of Stanford upon which will be strung the wires of the MutuM Telephone company, which will connect this, city with Lewistown and other portions of the Judith Basin, Billings and all Yel- lowstone county. The coming of the Mutual into this territory is acclaimed with de- light by the residents of Stanford, who have been laboring under great disadvantage in attempting to trans- act business over the lines of com- peting companies, which to say the least, furnished an incomplete and most unsatisfactory service. It is said that the Mutual Telephone com- pany offers to patrons a very satis- factory service at a moderate cost. The officers of the company, and the money interested in the enter - prize, being each of our own Fergus county, brings this company nearer to the people here, and if there are at any tune complaints made, or in- different attention to business, there will be a near and close manage- ment to rectify and adjust the mat- ters. In a recent interview with the World, Geo. M. Stone manager of the company, outlined the proposed im- provements in the service to be offered to patrons in this section. The present terminal of the lines are at Windham. From there the lines reach to Philbrook, Hobson, Utica and Moore, direct. At pfes- ,,ent the people of these towns are permitted the privilege of convers- ing, one with another, free of I ,ng distance charges. This privilege will memonsilaaams••••••=esagimmummuk:wasum•mmare , 1te extended to Stanford. Practic- ally the whole of tile Judith Basin then will be directly connected. As soon as the line is completed to this city, a central will be established with a lady attendant in charge. The cost of residence phones, Mr. Stone stated, would be probably $18 per year, with business phones at $30. Plans of the company in this section are extensive, but are not yet released for publication. The World is reflective only, when it states that the Mutual Telephone company will be welcomed cordially by the business men of Stanford into the city, and will be liberally patronized if the service here proves the equal of that extended to people of other towns. Mr. Stone assured this paper that his company had a high regard for the growing import- ance of the city, and would do all in its power to merit the full patron- age of the community, and a pleas- ant business relation with all.

C, If a stranger had dropped into town last Sunday evening he would have thought the old war between the cattle and sheepmen was on. At this time there is one subject that is tabooed, viz.: the weather. This does not bar hie individual from making forcible remarks about it in private. D. C. Conover has relieved Joe ' Mondolia as section boss on the east section here. He will bring his family here shortly and make this his permanent residence. Rev.

On Wednesday the following dis- patch was sent out front Washing- ington : Secretary Ballioger today desig- noted areas in the states of Colo- rado, Montana, Nevada, Washington, Wyoming, Arizona, and New Mexico in which entries may be made on non -irrigable. non -mineral and non - timber public lands under the new enlarged homestead act. The areas desigitoted aggreate 157,000900 acres, but embraced in ,the desig- nated areas in each state are many holdings and entries under the gen- eral laws which will cut down areas subject to entry in the districts des- ignated from 25 to 30 percent. The secretary's office was not pre- pared today ttegive a detailed state- ment of the allotments for each state, but it is shown that Nevada's allotment is 40,000,000acres, Wash- ington 3,(X)6,000, Oregon 5,000M0 and other states and territories front 12,006,000 to 20,000,000 acres each.
