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.
prrffr owsT VALL /Ca 1, .44 VOL. XI. SAVAGE, RICHLAND COUNTY, MONTANA, THURSDAY, DECEMKR 30, 1920. NO, 25 Riddick Writes The Star Washington, Dec. 21, 1920' I am sure the readers' of the Star will be glad to know that Congress is doing everything possible to relieve, so far as pos- sible, the serious situation con- fronting farmers. Even before the opening of Congress, members of the Sen- ate and House Agriculture Com- mittee convened, daily and heard much testimony, and stndied methods for bringing relief to the farmers of the nation who are facing ruin. Over 600 bills bearing on this subject have been introduced. Members of the..House of Rep- sentativea who represent agri- cultural, committees recently met in caucus and appointed a committee of ten, of which I am a inember; • to study, the differ- ent measures introduced, and make recommendations for the immediate passage of those which it is hoped will bring the quickest relief. Our committee recommended the immediate passage of these measures as emergency legislation. First, the temporary restora- tion of the War Finance Board to arrange credit for foreign notions which need our goods but have not the ready money to buy. It is hoped this will provide an outlet for our surplds products, and help restore those prices that have dropped to sud- denly. Second, a temporary farmers' tariff measure, having the force of an embargo in some cases, to prevent the importation into the United States of wheat, cattle. flour, beans, mutton, wool, cot- ton,. the tci t otit — dher agricultural product. Third, also, providing that the $150,000,000 accrued profits of the Federal Reserve Board, with the annual profits hereafter to accrue, shall be made permant- ly available for extending 9 months credit to farmers, and two years credit to live stock raisers. Our committee is continuing its work, and will recommend other legislation later, probably among other things, the doing away with grain ganibling, and providing for co-operative mark- eting, storage and 'credit agen- cies. Somobody has to carry the wheat from the day it is har- vested . until the, miller is ready to grind it into flour. . It is very naturally asked, why make it easy for iniddle,then to secure credit to buy this crop from the farmers at a low price, and dole it out as needed to the 'cons4i- er at high prices? Why not pro- vide better credit, storage and marketing agencies for the farm- er, so that he may carry his own product until the consumer needs it, and thus make a bet- ter profit on his product, even while, reducing the cost to the consumer, • Bills contemplating this re- organization of marketing agen- cies are already introduced, and others are in course of prepara- tion, and will be given consid- eration as soon as they can be reached. • The House Agricultural Com- mittee, of Which I am a member is Working every'day right thru the holidays in an effort to pro- perly solve these big problems. The work is complicated because of the nation-wide demand that the cost of living shall be reduc- ed, and because of the further demand from idle factories and the million and a half of men out of work, in our cities, that their problems are even more pressing than the troubles of the farmers. Carl W. Riddick. Turn Down Destructionists A prominent lumberman says few people realize the present situation in regard to labor con- dition. The quiet is similar to that which precedes the storm. Advices through detective agencies indicate that the I. W. W. element is considering join- ing the Loyal Legion and work- ing through that organization Death Of Mrs. Lossa Dawe Mrs. Lossa Dawe 'of. Sidney, died on Friday, December 24th, at her home, of paralysis. They were about to move into a new residence that they had just completed and she had been making some preparation in the evening and went into the bath room for something when she fell to the floor and when Mr. Dime came home from down town, asked his daughters where their mother was, who informed him . that she had retired, upon going to her room found that she was not there, entering the , bathroom found her lying on t e floor. She was taken to the hospital at once, where she rallied just once, dying the next day at '2 p. in. The funeral was held on Sun- day afternoon, which was one of the largest that the city has ever had. \ She is survived by her hus- band, three daughter and a son, the youngest being 14 years of age. She was an aunt of Mrs. C. A. Brooks of this place. Mr. and Mrs. Brooks being present at the funeral. Mrs. Dawe came to Montana in 1895. haying been a resident of the a ate for 85 years. . M awe has been in the stock and agricultural business for many years and the family is one of the most widely known and highly respected in Eastern Montana and the sudden and untimely death of Mrs. Dawe, casts sorrow over old time stock - raiser and people of the early days, when near neighbors lived 20 miles apart. ratly3r Oa& threligh,thp.

The anticipated prices of various crops' may enter into Ilia consideration. Beet Price Won't Disappoint. A contract fixes the price for beets, therefore the anticipated price in this ease does not change. With a non -contract crop, the anticipated price and what the farmer finally receives may vary greatly. Wheat furnishes a recent example of the latter. In our beet territories certain districts produce magnificent and sometimes,profitable wheat yields. Also many farmers raise wheat and beets every year. In other districts magnificent and in some years profitable potato yields are produced. Yet many potato grow. era also raise beets every year. Safety of Returns or Speculation? In every district white very wealthy farmers raise beets every year. On the -other hand, farmers starting with very meager capital do the same. Raising a speculative crop with the anticipation of a high price has attractions for -some. Many farmers, hvcver, have beeti in the past as inuch attracted by the one staple cro offering a guaranteed priee when planted, namely, the sugar beet. Safety of -returns will have in the future the same attraction as possible speculative high returns. Prosperous farmers in every district who have - consisteatly raised beets every year are evidence that the safety first principle in selecting ciops brings financial rewards. • THE GREAT WESTERN SUGAR COMPANY.
