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 main purpose of the law appears to be to provide salaries for. a state game warden and a lot of deputies fav- bred with appointment by that 'official. ' at the présent time, 'discord­ ing to recent! advices from Helena, a cash baianise of ’ abput$5j0,00() in the game warden fpn’d, tnost’of which was pollectecl front Montana citizens„of all ages, for the pri'vilege of hunting and fishing'. The fund furnishes regular, salaries to'the slate game warden and Jiis numcrpiis deputies, whose services are of questionable value to the com­ munity; I f this game warden business is not fa graft, it comes pretty near deserving jb'at desiguaiiou. lu every county, township aud muuitipality throughout ^Montana, there are peace officers whose duty, it is to secure the nrr-'sl and pun­ ishment of offenders ..gainst 'lie law. We haye sheriffs aud llie'r deputies, ponstab)es and peace officers located p ' all parts of the slate,'aud if there pye Violations of iheffish aud gaine law pr.auy other Montana statute^ the de­ ception and arrest of the culprit by one pt these public officers is expected. That is what .they are here- for. Why ■“ tlîënTshUürd'thère-he^mployed-ÿtrfar salaries, a lot of. 'wardens’ ,whose alleg­ ed occupation is to enforce one partic- ailar staté law? ¡, ,. - Wbuïd'it be proper or' ieasouable' to preate a state department for the spec­ ia l puipose of enforcing the law against ' burglary, and provide a separate pay roll for a number of officers who wou»d oe supposed to give their attention to that particular class of law «breakers? \Why should the game aud fish law require special officers tor its enforce ment, where there is already a large force of public officials on the ptiblip payroll whose duties call. for the en­ forcement qf every Montana stàtüte? If; the state treasury needs revenue for the legitimate expenses, of govern- fnent, the collection of a,license fee from.udùltsfpr the privilege of hunt­ ing and'tishifig would not he reseuted, but the ey'acjpn of tribute from the children, for tfie benèüt of a lot o f Use­ less officials, wbq. do not render ade­ quate-service iu return, is an imposi­ tion > f ronj'( which, Montana citizens should relieve thetpselves at. the very jfirs^ opportunity, ' ' A Montana Flying Machine From the Leader. , The shades of bight wefé falling fast, The night wind blew a breezy blast) When through thef streets with haughty mein- . Herr Munsofi bòre his fly-machine; ‘Along!ttìéplopés of Prospe’ct Hill > J Herr.’Munson worked his wheels at will , Then softly glided iròniche ground' And hit the air without a. sound A mighty bird, lie soared aloft ( . r. Then'1ooked l below for something soft; The earth came up‘with mighty crash ; HerEMiinson’s fly-machinc went ‘kersmash..’ , A small hoy bentwith listening ear Herr Munson’s whispered-words to ' hear: ‘Next time,’ he said, ‘ when I shall try' 13y hot air route I ’ ll soar! the sky.’ ' Great Falls has auolher flying,macli?. ino man. In addition to being a fly-. in'glma'QhinV matrice\ is~alsbrb~hot air; experimenter. . In addition to that he is a telegraph operator in thè freight; department’ of Jitn Hill'. And in ad­ dition to all that he really trie's to fly, which makes something of a combina­ tion.' '• ' A number of years since, there lived a flying machiné man under the Nor- thern -Montana Fair- association graud stand, who by the judicious gathering of .bicycle forks; tin' cans, pieces of whalebone and Aid sheets, managed Jo get together a machine for which he' •charged 25 cents’ per look anil is said, to have gotten even' so wary a business; proposition as Zion Gerspach to back\ him with eating' material for about three years. That the man never-at­ tempted to fly his machine did not pre-. vent,his being the pioneer .flying ma-' chine man of Great Falls, for Jiis mn- chineoyas not made for flying, but ou-; iy as a flying machine. Mr. Mippop, H. H. Munson tp .bb more exact, is the secon/j of the spec- -,ies in our fair city, the only difference'' being that Mr. Munson is- making a machine which he believes will really ft}'— with Mr. Munson aloft on the poop deck. Mr, Munson had also an-, other machine, or rather an experii mental bump-fest, and last evening be gaily hied himself to Prospect hill,anrli; there and then did get into the tiling! and shoot iDto the air more or less like, a bird', but coping down yery much' lilje a wreck. Several hundred small' boys yelled, two reporters said nice things to Mr. Munspn after be came to- and brushed his clothes solicitously,' while listening to his airy tales of high flyiug. In addition to Jx-iving the flying ma­ chine bug, Mr. Munson is something in' hot air, aud he modestly informed, the couplet of pencils that he wa-i working upon a hot air engine which- promised to revolutionize the world.of jncehimics-_oiL.wha.tfiyer-it_ is thqy call the engine business. ^ VMr. Munson lias been in the\ spotif light before, having beon the operator; who took that ,famous associated-press', dispatch announcing that the Japanese fleet was coming up the Missouri river to capture Montana, and that the gov­ ernor had ordered out the state militia aud the river filled with rocks at Cow island in order tlpt the Japs npght go aground there and bp eaten up by the cows. The dispatch was turned in as popy to the papers of the city and paused great excitement, until *it was later annpunced-that the fleet, learning of th e ' preparations, had turned tfiil' and fled. Agriculture in Alaska An interesting light, is thrown on the status of Alaska from an agricult­ ural standpoint in a recent report of .C. j G' Qeorgesmi, sjtecjal agent of the agricultural department iu charge\oT the stations in the far uorth? ' Therb are five stations in. Alaska and they have demonstrated that its agricultural possibilities are great. Potatoes, cab­ bage, turuips'j.lettuce, and in , fact, all ofthe.bardy vegetables maybe grown to perfection even' within the arctic circle, as has been shown in hundreds of instances by settlers.. HayTfuntiJe produced in abundance for. winter feed­ ing, whije the nutritious! grasses of the coup try afford ample* summer, .range for stock', but, says .the !report) before Alaska can be largely ¡.settled, riylroads and wagon.roads must be built. Under present conditions few farmers can af- ford to go to Alaska with their families .and equipment, the expense of trans- portatiou equalliug the cost of a farm in the western states... ______ . , !>; The report expresses the opinion thiit Alaska has undeveloped resources sufficient for the support of a large population, hut there “ nature is stern and' uncompromisiug, and we \must £ubmit to the conditions she imposes.” - Among interesting facts in the re­ port, it is memioned that watermelons were ma'tured out of doors on th e jlot Springs farm, in the Tanana valley, in latitude 64 degrees north. It- appears th&t on a part of this farm the soil is warmed from the same source, what­ ever it may be, that heats the water of the springs. This farm lias now 150 acres regularly under crop, the greater portion deyoted to potatoes. Notice to Creditors Estate of David S. Nichol, deceased. Notice is hereby given by the itndersigu- ed, admiui-trator of the estate of David S. Nichol. deceased,.to the creditors of, and all persons having claims against the said .deceased, to exhibit them with the neces- snryj vouchers within four months after the first'publication of this notice, to the said administratrix at her residence in Zort- man,' in the county of Chouteau. M artha if. N ichol , Administratrix of the Estate of David S. Nichol, Deceased. Dated July 2Sth, 11)09. First publication Aug. 7th, 1909. President Taft’s schedule lias been changed so lliat he will reach Helena on Sept 27th, instead of the 2Stli, as at first announced. In 189S there were not more than 200 automobiles made and qsed m tlie- United States. In 1909 the total num­ ber made and sold will reach 82,000. . ’ There is a growing demand on the •part of both sexes in China to choose •their own mates. Parents are, there­ fore, called upon to qpliold the old rules. The Ulterior department l)as ordered the re8i.qiaUon to entry of 10,200 acres of land heretofore withdrawn from settlement on account of the Sun river irrigation project, an 1 it will he sub­ ject to entry after November 15th. To turn over to the states iu which they are situated the public lauds not included national parks, Indian or mil­ itary reservations, fpr the construction ianl maintenance of reservoirs, etc. for ■irrigailgii, mnnufa.Qturing and mining purposes, and the generation of power is provided in a bill introduced by Rep­ resentative Smith, of California. The state ¡it. which the land is situated is to apply to the secretary of the intenor for bach individual appropriation. In Japan it is the custom to reverse nearly eycrything, according to our notiou of how things should be doue. Thus, a Japanese carpenle.r pulls the plane toward him, a blacksmith blows the bellows with his feet, aud neatly everybody sits down to. work. Horses arc put in their stalls the reyersc way, the horse’s tail being where Ins head' should be. Japanese screws screw to the left and Japanese locks lock to the left.- I.n a lonely portion of the mountains 34 miles 'west of Albambra Hot Springs the remain's of an unidentified man were found lying at the bottom of a creek flowing beside the track of the Great Northern railroad. The victim’s head had been crushed and a knife thrust in under the eye, the deed appar­ ently having been committed on the track and the body bad then been dragged-to 1 the stream where it was anchored to a willow tree by means of a .rope and .sunk to tbe bottom by a number, o f heavy rocks being placed upon it. The pockets of the victim were turned inside out, the corps strip­ ped of everything o f value and a money belt slit. Nearby' was found the bed­ ding of the victim. That western millers who continue to bleach flo'ur will invite the seizure of their products by federal inspectors was made known by a letter received by State Food Commissioner Rhrkc,oi Wyoming, from Secretary of Agricult­ ure Wilson. The impression had grown among western millers, that the gov­ ernment .would content itself with two or three test cases and until a decision of the supreme court, no more seizures ~pf~blgactrefl-fluur would-be-made. Such is declared not to be the intention of the government, but on tbe contrary, seizures will continue without limila tio'n,- .--This, said tbe secretary, would be necessasy injustice to those millers who had stopped bleaching flo.ur alto­ gether, or who had never bleached it. Alligator Stands Up, the oldest and most uoted brave of the Crow tribe, whose once stalwart form was tbe ou- -py of every other horse thief on the reservation, was recently hauled into Hillings for the medicine man of the jyhite tribe to pass upon, and his peo- ple were overjoyed when the medicine man told themne would probably pol­ lute the earth by his presence for a good many'years yet to come. That he.8tands well among his people is il­ lustrated by what one said': “ He great brave. He fight many times; the bul- letsjcomc, but he is safe, they no hit him. And r.ow he die—like white man. It is bad. It is bad.” ' Old Man Grouch says: “ The average Montana farmer buys canned and dried fruit likewise canned and dried oilier .goods. He gets up at thp alarm of a Connecticut clock, fa Jeps his Chicago suspenders on his Detroit overalls, wash«*? his face with Cincinati sqap in a Pennsylvania wash pat»-, sits down to a Grand Rapids table and eats Iowa Ilominv made in St, Joseph lard on a Si. Louis -stove. Then he puts a St. Louis bridle on a Missouri mule aud plows a farm covered by a Washington mortgage. When bed tune comes he read- a chapter from the bible printed iu Chicago, says a prayer written in Jeru-mleui and crawls wider a blanket made in New Jersyv, onlv to be Kept awake bv a Montana dog winch is the only home raised product oil the place. The Western Fedctalioti of Miners indorsed <li3 administration of Presi-j dent Mover and approved his annnal1 repo t by a vote <>f 223 to 79. Follow-1 ing I hi. Moyer offered a motion auth­ orizing the printing of 5Q0 copies of Hie statement submitted by P. W. Flynn of Hutto, in answer to the dec­ larations made in Moyer’s supplement­ ary report. This was opposed by Flyuu, but Moyer declared- he wanted The locals to know wlianlie~Charges made by the Butte leader were, and the motion was carried by the same vote. The closing hours of the session were taken up with a discussion of the question of what fee the parent organ­ ization should receive upon the re-in- statement of a member. Under the constitution the fee of S2 is charged, hut it appeared from the discussion that the locals had been m the habit of remitting only the 25 cent monthly dues. About three years ago the U . S. de­ partment of agriculture introduced a new radish from japan, which'is now pronounced boih striking and valuable It is an enormous white skinned radish with leaves two and three feet long. The seed looks like that of the common radish, but is considerably larger. It is knowu by several names, the most common of'which is-eakurajima. I t is claimed to reach Che weight of 30 lbs. iu Japan, but the largest ones produc­ ed at this Rhode Island .'station wcut only 18 pounds and the .general, aver-; age from various tests was 15 pounds. It grows about a foot and a half long and about, eight inches through,, and its leathery skin,v which is easily re­ moved,.reveals a crystal whiteness be­ neath, very solid, and-in texture like an extremely It tastes like our oarliest-^radishes-of-Jhe—highest quality, having the rare merit of being free from rankness or biting - charac-. ter even in the heat of summer. . I t may.,be used in a variety of ways, slic­ ed and eaten raw, or boiled and served very maoh as we r cook turnips. The leaves are also edible.
