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.

MOISTURE PROSPECTS GOOD FOR RIG CROP County Agent Carl Peterson sends in the Following and It's Still snowing Any one who has attempted to travel our Central Montana roads . or walk across a grain field dur- ing the past month will testify to the fact that for the present at lea0 we have enough moi,ture ard the stt anger within our midst can hardly conceive that last year Montana passed through an ex- tremely dry SeaS011. If one studies the weather rec- erds of the U. S. Stations located at Lewistown, Utica, and Mocca- sin, some interesting comparisons can be made. Take for instance the precipi- tation recozAs at Lewistown for twe»ty-th:pe year period begin- ning in 1896 and ending in 1919, We find that the average precip- itation for the eight months be- ginning with September and in- cluding all of April is 8.69 inehes. For the same eight month period nsginning last September, the to- t nveipitation up to April 18. Was 10774--inehes, or 2.05 inches abave the average, and there is at this time, still twelve days left of this month, which may add to the total. rrth. reason these mouths precipitation is consid- ered is because the growing per- iod of winter wheat dates back from about September each year. Assuming that there will be a nor- mal average precipitation during May, June, July, and August, the total for the year ending August 31 will be 21.66 inches or 2.08 above the average. On the other hand should the precipitation during the next four months compare. with that of 1915, the total for the year will be 25.62 or .68 above the highest on record, that of 1909. Take for instance the records for the month of April alone indicate that the average is 1.34 . ittehese-while thistqtpril up tit • the 18th. the total was 2.14 inches and if there is no further precip- itation for the other twelve days of the month, it will then be the fourth weltest April on record, - bring only exceeded by that of 1896, 1903, and 1912, but present indications point to more rain and allow. The tecords at Lewistown are fairly comparable with fliOse of Utica and Moccasin, except that during the past eight months the precipiation at Lewistown has been a little less than at above points. ‘viiile in other years it has been greater, hence there is even more favorable outlook for mois- ture in the other districts of the county. Since the crop prospects in a neforb STANFORD, FERGUS COUNT V. lSONTANA, THURSDAY, APRIL 22:' 1920. seini-arid legion, such as we have, depends upon the annual precipi- tation, especially that of the five growing months, April, May, June, July, and August, we are this year at least getting a good iend off and with an even break during the balance of the season there should be at least all aver- age (lop of winter vheat har- vested. A few wet snow falls during the mouth of April are nee led for winter wheat in that it packs and thoroughly saturates the soil and at the same time develops a itrong vigorous root system. Summer Chautauqua A representative of the Ellison - White company was in town the latter part of last week and com- pleted arrangements for a four - day tent Chautauqua this Sam- alCr, about the middle of July. This Chautauqua will cover four days, with seven programs, embracing vocal and instrumental music, and 1 .. .endings, which are promised to be of as high a char- acter if not better than those giv- en last winter. In connection with the Chautauqua there will also be au . eight day play grounds course for the children of the city, four days before the open- ing of the Chautauqua and the four days thereof. The Ellison - White people will bring complete ground equipment with them and the work will be in Charge of competent directors trained in the work at the Portland, Oregon, grounds, which have the reputa- tion of being the greatest in the country and therefore in the world, by Capt. Upton, who lec- tured here last fall. There will be classes for children of all ages and a story hour for the little tots, and people of the city who Pre interested will at the same time be given instructions on how to continue the play ground work after the Ellison -White people have left.
