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.

VOLUME 71 i WISDOM, MONTANA. THURSDAY. JANUARY 4,1923. NUMBER 12 Profit in Purebred Sires Of the many reasons given in purebred sires campaigns in support >of the purebred sire in preference to the scrub sire, the fact remains that nothing appeals more bo the stock- man than arguments calculated to show the superiority of the purebred animal from the standpoint of better gains in the feedlot or in the dairy t twin or in. other production lines, ihe man who is bo be converted to the purebred sire idea wants to be convinced that the purchase oi purebreds will pay him, whether he intends to sell purebred livestock or not. Not long ago it was the privilege of the writer to talk with «two Dodge county, Nebraska, livestock men both of whom are feeders of baby beeves. These men were located in dierent parts of the country. Both were breeders of Herefords. It is a significant fact that each of them when asked for some of the require ments in selecting calves for feeding said in substance that these animah must be well bred, in fact they pre­ ferred them bo be calves from purr bred dams and sires. Asked tht reason for this insistence on tht matter of good breeding when feed ing baby beeves, both men said that they were the most economical feed­ ers, putting on the gains more rapid ly than scrub or even grade calves and putting the gains where they should be put in order to sell well They slated that the typiness and uniformity, the result of the bottei breeding, commanded the high price on the market These men were un­ wavering in their beliefs of the eCo Domical value of purebred catth from the standpoint of cattle feeding “ Right bred animals have'fteen s< bred as to make them highly uscfu for a specific purpose,” says Rrof Good \I'urebred beef cuttle have been developed for centuries for the purpose of producing beef, and cer­ tain strains of the best beef breeds produce a good flow of milk as well A purbred bull is stratghter at the top and bottom lines, deeper and broader of body, shorter of leg and cairies a much deeper covering of fiesh than does the scrub bull The characteristics of a purebred bull are fixed and he is able to transmit thes? characteristics to his offspring. The offspring from the purebred beef bull will mature earlief than will a steer sired by a scrub. “ Steers sired by a scrub are usu­ ally coarser of bone, long of leg, shallow and narrow of body and late maturing While such a steer may arrive at a weight when ma­ tured, he still lacks quality on ac­ count of his coarseness and will not sell for as high a price per hundred weight as will a steer sired by a purebred bull. The market now de­ mands the small steer. To put a young small steer in good condition requires good breeding. The scrub steer when well fed will continue to grow and not atten. A purebred beef sire will easily pay for himself in one year if he gets as many as 40 calves. A steer from a purebred bull will be classed two grades higher than one from a scrub bull. A b there is a difference of about 60 cents per hundredweight between each grade, it can be seen that when a high grade steer reaches a thou­ sand pounds he is worth $10 more than a scrub steer. On this basis 4o grade steers wonld be worth$400 more than 40 scrubs, and the priee would very much more than pay the price of a good purebred bull. “ When once a man begins to Im­ prove bis livestock by grading up with a purebred sire he is so satis­ fied with the results that he often buyo a few purebred females and »bus be g radually builds up to a purebred herd of useful animal?. Valuable statistics from the federal la the back yard and talk to your­ self. First tell yourpelt that there isn't anything wrong with you and in a few minutes you tell yourself that you are feeling better. After you do thi? 69 or 190 times you be­ gin to feel better. Of course this might be a bit em­ barrassing if a fellow had a broken jaw or a stroke of paralysis. He might simply have to give the thought treatment. The fact is Dr. Code is probably all right. In the circle of patients a celebrity draws there is naturally a lot of wealthy persons who are “ babying\ them­ selves with imaginary ills. It is very easy for the doctor to cure these and make them say they like it, and also pay for it. As for the man , with the broken leg or curvature of the spine who nasn’t got anything, these do not get into the limelight at all. If Dr. Coqe's syteni works out why should it not apply to all othei conditions as well as health? Why should there not be a financial phy­ sician?

Religion, or the djity which w< owe to our Creator, and the manne of discharging it, can be directed only by reason —not by force or vto lence- .. and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion according to the dictates of conscience, and that Is the duty of all - to practice Christian forbear­ ance, love, and charity towards each other Let us now analyse what all this means to us We have said that re­ ligious liberty was a principle which applied to every one of us. What does this principle mean to this country of ours? We find a long list of eminent Masons who have swayed the destinies of this nation at every crisis. We can point to Washington, Franklin, Hamilton, John Marshall, as our great men, all Masons, of their time, who wrote the Masonic doctrine of the brotherhood of iuan into our fundamental docu­ ments and inlerpreted the constitu­ tion— and was adapted in a practical way. We have Garfield, McKinley, Roosevelt, Taft, Harding; and we can find In their publie speeches what tfeey think of religious liberty and what it has meant to them In Dresden Shields p^Iie ufe anj ag custodians of this Dewey MeKevitt ^reat republic Address .......................

We had our backs against the wall and we did not know what to do The whole country was in a turmoil, no one had confidence in congress, each state was jealous of (he other— and by the way, there were only thirteen states-at that time— each with (belt own form of government, but there was no head of government, no cen tral authority, and it was Commonly predicted both here and across the seas, that if left to ourselves our'\so- called government'’ would no! amount to anything, after all the struggle and work we had gone thru In fact, we were sick at heart ami discouraged, when up loomed a man —a Maspn— Alexander Hamilton who suggested a convention to he called to ward off the approaching danger. And at his suggestion there met the most distinguished body ot men that has ever assembled in Am erica, which began its work of draft ing a constitution which would unite the struggling thirteen governments in the greatest and foremost nation of the earth. Masonry has a feeling of great pride when we know that we had such members of the Masonic frater­ nity who helped draft that wonder­ ful document, the grandest that has ever been written, presided over by George Washington, the Father of his Country, and also Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and John Quincy Adams.
