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.

Threshing operations have began in Flathead, and with no rèourrorioe of the drenohing rains that have fa le*n almost daily for the past wéèk or more, Monday morning will see every threshing outfit in the conn' try at work getting out the biggest crop in the history of the Flatheac . Estimates of the total yield grain in the reservation this year ^laoe the figure at one ¿ullion btishels, and in this can he seen the first effeot of the settlement oi this territory. When one considers that tfét a tenth of the total tilfâblè aies oi the reservation country is as yet uider cultivation, a g6od idea can be formed of just how important tfiis seotion will ultimately become atr a grain producing ooUntry. The estimate of the total yield for tnis year is made by th^hergjen Who have been in the country severa yfars,and who have been over it the p&st month looking at the, grain! fields. Out of a total o f seven men sôèn in regard to the matter, all but ode has placed;' the! estimate of acreage in oul^yatibé at' 40,000 acres, with ali ai)oràge^ yféld of 25 bkshels to the acre. This inoludes tÉè territory around Poison, the Mission and Moiesev valleys,, the Gamas Prairie and Little Bitter Boot sections. The total-grain ptteda&ioa. foT tbis‘i«rritory in any year heretofore reporded has not ex­ ceeded 335,900 bushels. 3 S B M OF MONTANA In the future tbe otildren in the public, privateandparochiat school of M o n t a n a ^ Îiè'tîtii^h't th dangers o f fire and the best methods of preveatih^gjlc^'oflife abd.'prop efty.

Wednesday^ August 1 6 . 8 a. m.—Sacrament of the Lord’s by Bishop^ Following this week there trill be but one paper in Poison, The Sentinel being taken over by! the Cowman Printing Company and consolidated with the Flathead Courier. Subscribers who are paid in advance for this paper will receive corresponding credits on the Courier, and those in arrears will pay such amounts to Cowman Print­ ing Company. This step id taken for the good and sufficient reason that two papers in a town the Bize of Poison will not pay, which faot has been thoroughly demonstrated during the past year. • Parties in debt to The Sentinel—excepting subscription ac­ counts—will settle with the undersigned, who will call in person with statement. It is hoped that payments will be made promptly. Poison has been given good newspaper service in the past, and the Bame high standard will be maintained in the futurs. The busi­ ness interests o f the city should show appreciation of this service by extedding the most liberal patronage to the paper, which does more than any other one agency for the advancement of Poison, S am Y.

J ohn Cunningham, deputy has alrepdy, oruised the tracts fropi, which about .fifteen; of the settlers will take their timber. i This timber is furnished to the settler at prices -ranging from 11.00 per thousand up,. and; is taken, from the state lands,, sections 16 and 36.] in each township wherein timber is. v rad. The tracts are surveyed for from one to four ,aofe desiring further information on the I ^¡j.b subject are requested* to communi­ cate with rState Forester Jungherg, Helena, Montana. ------- ffi ------ Reclamation Service Calling for Bids on Consta­ tion of Dams. Bids are now being called for by the reclamation service, on. work, that will mean the employment of several hundred men on the Flat* head project from two to five miles, south of Poison. Engineer Tabor, who was in the oity last Saturday, left a copy of the call at this office, and it is as follows: “ Sealed proposals will he re­ ceived at the office of the United' States reclamation service, St. Ignatius, Montana, until. 3 o’clock p. m., August 25, 1911, for the con­ struction of the North, Middle, and South Pablo dams and about 8-J miles adjacent canals, involving the placing of ahout 234,000 cubic yards of earth erabanklnent in .the, dams and the excavation of about 200,000 cubic yards of material from canals. The work is located from two to five miles south of Poi­ son, Montana, on the Flathead pro­ ject. Fqr.particulars address the United States Reclamation Service, Washington,'D. C., Helena, Mon­ tana, or St. Ignatius, Montana.” It is the understanding here thai: the three dams mentioned above are take the place of the large reservoir which it was originally Settlers . ^ , , v ■ . . intended to build in connection tlie Flathead project.
