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.

Both houses of the Montana legls- latnre paid honor to Private Robert A. Simpson, one of Montana's decor­ ated war veterans. Simpson became ill before the Joint session was convened and was not present during the rere- monles. Senator Harry M. Shelver of Livingston made the principal address of the session, depicting the events leading up to the participation of Mon­ tana in the World War, citing the sac­ rifice« made by the men of this state and paying high tribute to Simpson as a type of Montana’* courageous man­ hood. The following senate bills were passed by unanimous vote on third reading: S. B. (5, Duncan, making the codes of 1921 the law of the state; I.

B. 23, Church, to extend the life of corporation*, religious and charitable, organised before 1903. The how», adopting a minority re­ port signed only by Wold, of Yellow­ stone, tiffed the M l to mate tire peni­ tentiary fhe scene o f aO fatare bang­ ings. Wold, with Albert Johnson, of Terga«, rad Bergstroms, o f Fmlhm, was ft «rat seat A writer in The New York Times treats intelligently tho subject of the cost of distribution in the following manner. \Forty-nine cents of every dollar you spend for food, furniture, clothes an so on goes into a uiyc,tenon- something called ‘distribution.\ It doc.3 not go for the material} in the article, nor for the cost of manufac­ turing it. It goes into putting the article within your reach and selling it to you.” This seems unreasonable l-o both the producer and the consumer. \Why demands the writer, \should the farmer get only a lew cento for a basket of cucumbers while the wife has to pay 25 cents for a very email bottle of cucumber pickles? “Folow Mary Into ihe delicate«.’,an and watch her pay a quarter for that bottle cf pickles. The vegetables are cucumbers and the count is only eight, none of them larger than your thumb. ”nl addition to the cucumber there is a pinch of red pepper in Mary's bottle, tome cinnamon bark and the savor, perhaiL, uf other spices in solution. That's what Marj gets for her quarter. \But is that all she buys? No for she gets a glass bottle and two labels. And she buys an ingenious metal top, lined with cork. She may carry the 1. ¡file home, but she mav have It delivered if s/he wishes IBo quarter Is paying for that, too She paid the clerk who walled on her. and she helped pay the rent of the delicatessen shop. \Around he bottle when it reached the shop was a corrugated paper wrapper Mary paid for that And she paid for one-twenty-fourth of the wooden box in which the P'cklv; were shipped And f -. o must luiv paid some of the cos: of the shipping She emt a tiny transportation bill \Perhaps t Ill's hill v. - n o t so tiny, after all. Let U3 see i here was the transportation of pungent spicas from Madagascar, or Ceylon, or Java, or China; there was the transporm Con of cork from Africa and of metal for the top from mine to smelter and to factory; there wa3 the transporta­ tion of sugar from South America, or Cuba, or Louisiana.\ The writer omits mentioning the cost of printing the labels aid (he vast sums paid out these days for artists and designers of advertising labels. As in many other instances, the ul tlmate consumer himself Is to blame for the It c oil, The writer well remembers the hours, spent watching a pan of green coffee while it roast­ ed. Would anyone think of such a thing today? Not on your life! It must be prepared in the factory; it must be wrapped in packages bearing expensive colored lithograph labels or put up In fancy painted cans. So with a large majority of the things which we buy today—and then kick about the cost thereof! \Service costs,\ says a report of the \department of agriculture after Investigating the \spread” between what the producer gets and wha; the consumer pays, \are the impor­ tant point of attack.\ Back to the Range w Thera be them whose taste, u whotlin' Cor a whirl of city life; Thom who wants the wild cvcitcmcnt and the gay\-y that» rife.

Mr, Carter's son, J C Carter, who handle-- the feeding operations, was alio here with the shipment. These heifers were the last out of a string that Mr. Carter bought here la.-i September at $5 60. They were Ted largely on old corn and the first four loads were chipped after they had been on feed only 80 days, two loads bringing $8.75 and the other two $8.50. Yesterday's sale brings the average for the entire string up to better than $8.65. \We fed the spayed heifers be­ cause at this time of year they usual- ly bring about as much as steers e! the same age and they can be bought much more cheaply,” Mr. Carter ex­ plained. \This lot ma4e Just as good a gain as steers would have done, and the financial outcome was very satisfactory.” — JonmaKStock- man, Omaha.
