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.

THE STANFORD WORLD. TREASURE STATE FARM AND LINESTOCK SUNFLOWER SILOS AT THREE FORKS To Open a Field for Tractors 111 One of the problems most tractor owners with new outfits face with FIRST SILO OF ITS KIND IN THE . Borne misgivings, is the opening up UNITED STATES IS FORMAL- of a field for plowing. It is a good plan for the inexperienced man to ' get some pointers on this from older heads at the business. One cannot turn around with a tractor outfit in the middle of the field as with a horse-drawn plow. For that LY DEDICATED Experiment Which NVill Be Watched By Farmers Interested in Develop- ment of s'ew Stock Food; Uncle Sam Hampton Delivers Dedicatory Address; College Representative Present. The erection of a silo in the high- ly developed states in the middle west is an every day event and at- tracts no attention. However, in Mon- tana, the most undeveloped -state in the union, where farms have only been opened up within the last few years and where farming has been done by pioneers in a very crude manner, the erection of the first silo is of more than ordinary importance. The progressive city of Three Forks, through its cl mber of com- merce has conducted a campaign to get farmers to plant sunflowers for silage purposes and a ton of sun- flower seed was distributed, free, for this purpose. The first silo of the nine to be built this season was de- dicated on July 31. There are no silos within 30 miles of Three Forks and when one takes into considera- tion that the silos which are to be built are to be used for the exprese purpose and exclusive use of sunflow- ers for silage, it is of more than or- dinary interest. It can be safely said that the silo, which is located on the Frank Gaffko ranch, is the first silo in the United States which was built for the express purpose of us- ing same for sunflower silage. Uncle Sam Hampton, a farmer of national reputation, delivered the de- dication address and state and agri- cultural college representatives, in- terested in the development of the dairy industry were present and as guests of the chamber of commerce noon day luncheon which preceded the ceremony. Three Forks has again added a chapter to the development of the state of Montana and in so doing has led the way to the greater production of dairy products by the solution of the feed question, which up to this time has hindered dalryin to a great extent. reason iVirsdIsnd los LAPS row IV • • • Ina4jamit • the lands for tractor plowing should be measured off as nearly uniform as possible so there will be no occa- Mon of running \empty\ part of the time in finishing a land. Thb accompanying sketch and des- cription of laying off a field for a plowing outfit will prove valuable. The first thing to do in follow- ing this diagram is to mark off a headland the entire way around the field, making sure that it is of uni- form width. When going into the field plow once around, thus definite- ly marking and setting off this head- land. This will bring the outfit back to the corner where the field was en- tered. Second: Swing around as in: (Mated in the diagram and open up a land of reasonable width and plow around that land just as you would with a horse-drawn plow. Third: when the land gets so narrow that it is difficult to turn the outfit with- out making a figure eight, pull across and open up another land of ap- proximately the same width, swing- ing back at the opposite end to plow out the center of the first land, which may take two or three rounds, Then drop in to the second land and pro- ceed likewise. When the center of the field has been plowed out in this manner, there will be a uniform width headland around the entire field that will be easy to finish up by plowing around 'le field until It is finished. By plowing a field in this manner there will be no long, empty hauls. Neither will there be any extremely short, difficult turns and the field will all be plowed clean excepting a very small area in each corner.

Important to Range Cattlemen Range cattle shipping season is on. Early sales indicate a splendid market xvith prices $2.00 to $4.00 higher than a year ago. On Monday, July 22, we sold at Chicago 60 head of 1,100 pound Montana grass steers at $17.10, a new high record. At the same time best corn feds sold at $18.30. There is the broadest demand for beef both for civilian and fighting forces known for a long time. The record -breaking corn crop will mean no doubt a big demand for feeders. The range men's prospects are therefore most favorable. I Keep in touch with us and let us advise you the best market and time of shipping for your cattle. Our location at all the prin- cipal markets enables us to post and serve you to the highest pos- sible advantage.

Wort Werth, Texas El Paso, Terse of all kinds, and it is becoming more and more the custom for ranchers and farmers to purchase registered breeding stock. It is gratifying to learn, too, that Montana pure bred stock is being shipped to eastern buyers. Last week P. 11. Griffin of Drummond sold 20 head of pure bred cows and hei- fers and two young bulls to Bellows Brothers of Maryville, Mo. The people of the Drummond sec- tion are proud of this sale because of the fact that Mr. Griffin raised this stock, which was sired by his fine herd bull Cumberland Prince, winner of first prize at several state fairs. It is also gratifying to know that the sa i le was made to the Bellows farm, as the latter is recognized as one of the leading breeding estab- lishments of the middle west. They disposed of Village Supreme, grand champion herd bull of the United States, last spring for $16,500. When breeders of international re- putation come thousands of miles from their own breeding sections and recognize stock of real merit, it marks an important era in Montana breeding and is a feather in the cap of Granite county. Last spring Mr. Griffin bought front Bellows Brothers the fine young thoroughbred Shorthorn bull Clipper Springs at a fancy price in order to enable hint to keep up the high t quality of his herd. Mr. Griffin also made a shipment of one thoroughbred Shorthorn cow to Mrs. Susan Nason of Kalispell re- cently. SOUTH DAKOTA CROPS MAKE GOOD SHOWING Although some crop damage has been wrought in South Dakota, the general impression received from state-wide reports is that the crops will be satisfactory. No forecasts have been _made of record -breaking yields, however, but farmers seem to be well pleased with conditions. The grasshopper plague has not been bad thus far and recent rains have been welcomed. Long dry spells caused considerable damage in some locations. In some sections of the state, winter rye, and other early small grain crops are in the shock. Haying Is in full blast on the prairies. Wheat will be ready for cutting next week and farmers today are preparing to begin this work. Alfalfa is in stack and the second crop has been progressing nicely, it is reported. The government proposes to che..k wild cat investments as they relate to Liberty bonds. ASK TEN MILLIONS FOR FARMERS' AID BIG BUSINESS INTERESTS IN CoN FERENCE TO RELIEVE imoucaur SITUATION Governor Stewart Goes to Washing- ton to Lay Matter of Necessity of Government Help Before Authori- ties; 2.1,000 Montana Fanners Are Interested. There are 24,000 Montana farmers who need federal aid to the extent of $10,000,000 if 2,- 000,000 acres of ground are to be seeded that otherwise will remain idle in the next crop year. This, in brief, is the re- port of the special committee of seven selected at the conference in Helenas' of bankers, elevator men, farm bureau presidents, business men and others with the state council of defense to consider ways and means of keeping the settlers on the farms. The state council of defense adopt- ed the report and recommendations of the special committee named at the federal farm aid conference, and in consequence Governor Stewart left for Washington to place the mat- ter before the authorities there. \It is our opinion,\ says the re- port, \that 20 per cent or more will actually leave the land for want of food and seed if they are not given positive assurance of relief imme- diately.\ Have Gone the Limit Front all parts of northern Mon- tana and from districts in eastern Montana where the drought has pre- vailed, came the same reports as made by members of the conference. Bankers and merchants have gone the limit in backing the farmers and can assist them no further. The farmers have mortgaged their stock, their farm impleinents and their land and have nothing left that can be mortgaged as security. Consequent- ly the dispatch from Washington an- nouncing that the war finance cor- poration is prepared to lend relief to drought sufferers - through local banks is not applicable to Montana at all if it means that the local banks must guarantee the loans, because the local banks are already carrying as many farmers' loans as they pos- sibly can. The relief movement is sponsored by T. A. Marlow, Samuel Sanebury, Stanley Scorce, Will A. Campbell, M. L. Wilson, Charles Davis and T. M. Everett. FIELD COURTS IN VOGUE ON THE DAKOTA FARMS Meadow trials may become dis- tinctly popular in South Dakota. Several weeks ago it was announc- ed that the heavy demand for farm labor and the absolute necessity for farmers to remain on the job until lifter the harvest, made it necessary for court officials to do one of two things—to exempt farmers front jury duty, or to hold the cases in the coun- try. The last plan is being tested. One meadow trial took place recently, and more may be held. A case was to be tried at Timber Lake. The attorneys wont there and found that the judge was on his farm, near that city. The delegation then went to the home of Judge Ray- mond L. Dittman, of the Twelfth cir- cuit and found hint shocking rye. :'Why not try the case here,\ some one suggested. \Suits me,\ said the judge. A \court room\ was built among the shocks. The judge's rostrum was made of rye. Grasshoppers frisked about but the case was disposed of without incident, in about half the time usually given to a minor civil matter in circuit court.
