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.

Yet therein does not he its greatest value, for educationally its worth is beyond the power of figures to express HAILSTONES AND WI -I E A 7' - Twenty-five years ago the country around Stanford suffered front a , severe hailstorm: this year she. got another one—on June 28th. Near this city on that date in ; June, there existed a field of 71 acres of winter wheat—the prize crop of the Judith Basin—all headed out. That night a hail storm struck the field and literally chopped it off at the roots. Fifteen cents an acre for that field would have been a fabulous price to have paid for it. But Montana soil and climate were on the job, and in less t mit two and one-half months anot m r crop was harvested. This week the thresher came and when he had gone the owner found that his sec- ond crop of wheat for the season had yielded twenty-nine bushels oer acre. Is there a country on earth that can equal that record? One year ago that very tract of land was be- ing offered for sale at $10 per acre. and no buyer was found. EDWARD BRASSEY. B. E.

Augustus Heinze announces that he is (aiming back to Butte. and the Amalgamated Copper company is now busy nailing down its belong- ings and sealing up their mining shafts, so it is presumed. The rea- son announced by the gentleman (or his return at this time is that the affairs of the Davis -Daily Mining company require his personal atten- tion. The return of Heinze to Mon- tana recalls the fact that when he left the state he was very much in disgrace. so they said. in the eyes of those of his compatriots who fell for the now memorable pounise—\you stay by me, and I will stay by you.

Heinze's day is Montana has passed and gone forever. He was a good sport and played the game to the limit. but when the time came to cash in it has been said that he refused to split up. and that he carried off the swag to New York and lost it on a brace game.

On that score the comment of the judge was pointed. \That man has read the history of our institutions to little purpose:* he said. \ who does not view with apprehension the success of such a proceeding as this, to the end that citizens enuld be dragged from their homes to the District of Columbia': the seat of government. for trial andel- the circumstances -a this case.\ Of course, there is an 0mq - tunny for appeal. even in this ruling.

Judge derson made several remarks which showed that, anyhow. he hasn't a very good opinion of the case or of any merits it may claim to have. He also called attention to the fact that when the canal purchase was under investigation, Cromwell, Pres- ident Roosevelt's friend, persistently stood \on his privilege\ and refused to answer pertinent questions.—An- aconda Standard GEYSER Frank Spencer went to Gre:.m Fails Wed nesday.

GEYSER HAS GOOD HOOTER Writes Letter to Old Home Paper Telling of Judith Basin's Advantages. The Stillwater, Minnesota, Gazette of recent date, published the follow- ing letter front C. H. Cobb, of Geyser: \Editor Gazette: Thinking you might like to hear from an old fel- low who used to dish up loads for you and also from this comparative- ly new country. I am writing you at this time. This state is in about the same status that Minnesota was in the early '70's. With an area larger than New York and the whole of New England, the census of 1900 gave it less than 500,000 souls. \Not only has it all the agricul- tural advantages of Minnesota, but it also has untold mineral wealth. Coal is found in almost every sec- tions of the state, while gold silver, copper and iron abound in local sections and are just beginning to mined extensively. Precious stones too tire found here. There is a saphire mine only 20 miles from my claim. \The Judith Basin is the name given to this section of the state and it has been a paradise for the stock men. but their time is about up. The rancher, as the farmer is called, is taking up the government land and tine plow is robbing the sheep and the cattle of the rich buffalo grass on which they have fattened for years. \The additional homestead law passed last winter has started a stampede for the land on the bench- es. where 320 acres can be home- steaded. I was fortunate enough to secure an additional 160 acres next to my original quarter. The bench land is about the same in compari- son to the bottom land as the upper part of Stillwater is to business part, and it will grow wonderful crops. Wheat will go from 40 to 50 bushels to the acre. Oats, will make 75 to 100 bushels. \ I am sending yott under separate cover a copy of our local paper pub- lished in Stanford, 16 miles from here. It is pretty healthy for a 9 -months -old infant. It is printed on a perfected cylinder press and the editor was a compositor on the Pioneer Press 15 years ago. I was told by the editor of the Great Falls Leader, the other day that there are sonic Stillwater boys in Great Falls. A Nelson and a Theletn. \ I wonder if any of the rural let- ter carriers are the same as I used to know. If so please remember me to them and tell them that I have taken Horace Greely's advice: 'Go west,' and it has been very much to my advantage. \Remember me to A. B. Eaton and all the old G.
