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.

According to Mr. Carnegie, the very gtavest of the dangers that be- set young men who aim at sucaess in business is the habit of intoxicating liquors. He says in his book. \The Empire of Business:\ \The first and most seductive peril, and the clesLroyer of most young men, is the drinking of liquor. I am no temperance lecturer in disguise. but a man who knows and tells you what observation has proved to him; and I say to you that you are more likely to fail in your career from acquiring the litabit of drinking liquor than from any or all of the other temta- Dons like to assail you. You may yield to almost any other temtation. and reform—may brace up and if not recover lost ground. at least remain in the race, and secure and maintain a respectable position. But from the insane thirst tor liquor escape is al- most impossible. hay • known but, few exceptions to this rule.\ $10,000 Rant& Deal. One of the biggest deals in real estate ever made in this community was made Saturday when Jos. Barth, of Cottonwood, Idaho, pur- chased the Jas. Awberv ranch a few miles east o; Kendall for $10,000. Only a small part of this ranch has been broken as yet but it contains much fine land which when under cultivation will produce some of the finest crops In the country. Mr. Aw- berry retains podsession of the place until the first of next March when he will turn it over to Mr. Barth. lir. Awberry bas not yet decided what lie will do but. the chances are he will soon be back in the ranching busintes Oath. Good Showing For The 'State.

Summing up the AS'eultural ad- vantages of Montana and the possi- Wales which they present, the Rocky Mountain Husbandman pre- sents graphically the opportunities which exist here. The summary which the pioneer farm paper makes is worth preserving; it is right to the point and here it is:: There is nothing approaches the splendor of Montana today. The land fairly groans under the weight of the crop. , Fields irrigated and un- irrigated have yielded a bountiful harvest. The yield has not only been tine but the average is immense. The state boasts of big crops of wheat, oats and barley. The tonage of hay is also simply grand owing to the frequent rains during the sum- mer months when haying was pro- gressing. The quality of the hay is not as good as we frequently have it. Some of it is very good and it is all merchantable and will fatten stock in c,ctIde weather. The sugar beet crop, through not fully maturel prom- ised to yield from 13 to 23 tons per acre, and this is a staple industry, be- cause the price is established. The fruit crap is also large, amounting at rough•estimate to about 1,500 car- loads. This is about a home supply for Montana. In years gone by only onetenth of the Montana product has been consumed at home, but this year we • expect to see two-thirds of what we produce used by our home people. The vegetable crop is also very fine. The frost has held off well and our gardeners have cucumbers and corn and other tender stuff right up to this date, and the freeze such as puts stuff out of business, and the leaves on the big trees are still green and summer, like the :ountry has never looked better. In fact the fact that Montana's 2,500,000 of land un- der irrigation produces a big crop every year makes us feel every fall as if we never saw the like befor.. But we cannot have it any other way but god. The conditions that confront us are such that it is always line. And the large average for the acre- age is increasing every year, makes every year's crop appear greater than the last, and it is in total tonage. Montana is great to -day. It is a ver- itable garden of Eden where omnipq- tent edict of the forbidden fruit has riot been enunciated. The apple is on the tree; the harvest on the bill, the fleshpots are full and the people are free to eat, drink and be merry and they are. There is a vein of happi- ness running through the Montana life that makes our existence here really enjoyable. Montana is a great state. 'there is evidence of it at the state fair and at every roadside as we j airney the country through. Indus- try has been awarded handsomely, very handsomely indeed, apd we have reason to say splendid, and bid our readers to be of good cheer. The country is good enough. It yields bountifully, its people enjoy good health, happiness and freedom, and one could &cloy no more than this anywhere. Great and glorious is Montana. Sensible Adria,. The habit of indulging in the use of profane or obscene language is one of the most nonsensical habits a h ti roan being ever acquired. No man of use ever raised himself in the esti- mation of saint or sinner by the use of foul language. Purity of thought and speech are valuable virtues. And yet its our opinion that the man who unwittingly \misses\ a little now and then' is not half so big a sinner as the fellow who continuously thinks evil and speaks evil of his neighbors, and refuses to pay his honest debts upon the theory that \Jesus paid it all, all the debt I owe.\ If the pul- pits of the land would go after the fellows who refuse to pay their hon- este debts and to love their wives and their fellow men—\go after\ them as eigorouely as they go after the fellows ,who \cum and chew tobacco,\ the trite reformation of the race might be nearer at hand.

Hawkins the Lewistown assayer spent several days here this week looking after some promising prospects in the neighborhood. One of the masons working on the foundation walls of the Cumberland Mill was taken suddenly ill with Pneumonia on Wednesday and was removed to the Miner's Union Hos- pital at Gilt Edge ,on Thursday. Mrs. Boulanger, of Gilt ledge spent several days here on business, sire expects shortly to be open for busi- nessoontinuously. Marion Maury came to grief on Friday whilst decending a steep grade close to the Cumberland mine. His trail wagon, which was loosely loaded with iron piping ran forward under the lead wagon, several 'Aces of pipe slipped forward and running into the ground so rendering his rough locks of no avail and the reach snapping caused the lead wagon to slew and turn over falling upon one of its wheelers and rendering it unfit for [other use. Marion escaped by jump- ing with onb a cut on the side of his head as the result. John R. Cook of Kendall visited the Cumberland mine Saturday in the company of A. S. Wright. Rufus Poland came up from Lewis- town Sunday on a fishing excursion, he went home with a large smile having succeeded in land two one - pound trout besides several small ones. State Exhibit In St. Paul \Some of the agricultural exhibits on display at the Montana state fair have been secured by the Great Northern,\ says the Pioneer Press, \and will soon be shown in che exhi- bit room at the foot of Sibley street, near the union depot. \Montana le fast, pushing to the front as an agricultural state. It showed a remarkable increase in grain acreage this year and there is hardly a part of the stale where there has not been a great advance In agri- cultural activities. Fruit raising is being carried on with great success, and Great Northern officials are glad of the opportunity to show to the thousands who pass through St,. Paul the products grown in territory tri- butary to it. \For many years Montana has been regatded as a mining and cattle rais- ing state some people have been in- terested in letting that impression last because they did not want to see the cattle ranges broken up. But the days of expansive ranches are drawing to a close and the land is be- ginning to be taken by farmers with moderate means. Grain Rates Are Redwood The announcement was made a few days ago that the Great Northern railway had made sweeping reduc- tione in freight rates upon shipments of grain from Montana to M inneapo- I is. The reduction from Montana points as arthounced amounts to from 5do 7 cants per hundredweight and will mean the placing of that amount upon the price which the farmer has been receiving for iris grain. The reduction from the main ship- ping points are as follows: Great, Falls to Minneapolis, reduced From 37 to 30 cents: Judith Gap to Minneapolis reduced from 37 to 32 cents; Conrad and Collins to Min- neapolis, reduced from 40 to 32 cents. Other reductions of a' corresponding nature have been made from other points in the state. This reduction In the freight rate will be of more Ixtnefit to the farmers in the future than at present as a great proportion of the grain of this part of the state Is sold to local mills.

The American engineer borne for a visit from Burma accepted a proffered cigarette and rolled it gently between his lingers. ''At the risk of seeming ungrateful,\ he said, \I rise to remark that the specimen you have so kindly tendered me strikes my acquired sense of the fitness of such things as highly inade- quate. Merely as to size, 1 mean. The cigarette of Burma Is a re- markable contrivance, ranging in length from a foot to a foot and a half, an inch in diameter and not un- like a giant firecracker in general shape. If composed wholly of tobacco it would be deadly. 'As a matter of fact, it contains very little tobacco. It is made of cornhusk or leaves of Innocuous plants rolled tight and with shreds of the divine weed between the layers. One will last a smoker for a day, frequently an entire family for a day. \The women of Burma, the most handsome and intelligent of their sex In the east, smoke these cigarettes ha- bitually. It is something of a shock when the visitor first sees a pretty woman puffing at one of these enor- mous cylinders. It is still more of a shock if she Is carrying a youngster astride her hip in approved native fashion.

As to daror, they are insipid and unpleasaut.\—New York Herald. RISEN FROM THE TOMB. The Romance of Benedello M•rcello, the Venetian Composer. Benedello Marcell°. one of the most famous Venetian composers, fell in love with a beautiful girl named Leonora Manfrotti. who married l'aolo Berens°, a Venetian noble. She died s short time after her marriage, a vic- tim to the harsh and jealous treatment of her husband.
