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.

KENDALL CHRONICLE The North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Th011sands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, JULY is, 1902. NO. 17. IT IS A SAFE INYERNI .No Fcar of Ovor Supply in the , Cattle Market. a oft Grass Country no Unger Considered Useful for Rais- ing Cattle. There -is -no subject colon cted with the cattle industry that engages the atten- tion of the peockman to the extent as that touching the future prospect ot the industry, says the Helena Intlepee- dent. It is true that in. all indus- tries a comtideration for thintare is one of the vital essentials. But tbia is the greater in the live stock indiutty. since few industries have experienced its vicissitudee and the element of uncer- tainty e hich in the pat attended it, has in a large measure been reeponsible for the apparent slowness • in the improve- ment of the herd. The stockmen is willieg to improve bin herd, lint before doing so lie asks himself tint question whether the ruler* outlook ot the industry juetifiee the Osi- pendlt are. That a hick particutioetv leads the Stockman to epprebeneidai ,ra- irattlimrtike Mtsite id hie lberieatibrance of the history of the industry during the bean of the eighties and its collapse, fearing its repetition. lint ththe who keep in view the chenge of conditions that - had taken piece siece thee fear no euch tepetition, hut on the other band are confident of the future Wabiiity of the iudnstry. The resomons for. this 'con, fidence are clearly set forth by T. T. B. Sothem, than Whom there is no one more watchful of time tiend end poeet- bilittea of the industry. He says: In the boom days of the eighties the , corn states were scoured for cattle Of all eons and conditions to stock whet at that time was considered n ilesert. Wild -cat companies were formed, eastern and foreign capital followed nett for a de- cade the west was a land of idiotic ex- travagance. Any hair -brained cattle ocheme found moneyed adherents. The invaluable Hereford went soaring with the rest. But whep the product of these range herds was tolded to th0 market already pretty well supplied by the corn states there came a glut of overproduc- tion, the like of which is no ego i ii pos- sible in this country. The reason why we shall not again experience the glut of overproduction of ciente in Arherke is obvious: 1. Much of the short. grass country that was deemed available for catee rais- ing has proven utterly profitless furl the purpose. 2 Millions of acres of land that sup- ported cattle have been invaded by the shepherd, and wherever sheep have ranged the cattle range is destroyed. , 3. The fanner has occuOied every useful valley and abeorbect the water courses for irrigation, and not satisfied with fencing all the lands available for farming he has stuck his plow into the eo(i4 of million% of acres of arid lands which have 'nerved him out only o to leave desolation behind him itt a growth of weeds that , nature alone by years of persistent effort can clothe again with green that will sustain the .herd and flock. 4. The growth of population increases the number of people ilependent upon their own labor. It is impossible for the majority to own land and live stock, hence their conquest tit the agricu'tural States for grain growing. 5. And finally the growth of con4 sumption has overtaken production, home and export demands for meats are increased end increasing. How will the country meet the in- creasing demand for meat? It IIRS been plain to thought fel minds that this will be done by making two blades of grass grow where one grew before. Two eon; of corn must grow where one grew be- fore. This van only be done by inertial- ing lime fertility of the soil, possibly by two . tnethods—the use of commercial fertilizers or barnyard marline.
