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.

Farming Pointers, Lewistown Basket Ball Girls Outclassed By limo° Team. Basket Bail enthusiasm in our vil- lage reached its oulinination last Friday evening, when the eight grade basket ball team of Lewistown played the eight grade •teinn of- the Kendall school and went down to defeat to the tune of 4 to 12. The hall was crowded to its utmost eppacity and when the teams faced each other on the floor, the building shook with enthusiastic applause of the \rooters\, which was repeated with incieaslog volume whenever a goal was scored' or a particularly brilliant: play was Made. The teams' were evenly matched and both sides stubbornly contested every foot of the ground. On the Kendairteam, Miss Newton and Miss Kelly, as forwards, excicutecl some, very clever passes - which the Lewistown girls failed to unravel and winioliresulted in the scoring of tine winning baskets. Miss Daniel deseiv- es special mention for the way she covered the floor as center, while Miss Mungall and Miss Butler defended with such skill that their opponent's ball passed through the iron ring but once. . . • Tiae lineup of the reams was as 101- 10Ws:- KENDALL Juanita Newton, Capt.

A preliminary game was held ear- lier in the evening, between the Lew- istown boys and a home team picked up the day of the game. Altho the Lewistown aggregation won by a score of 7 to 13, yet the game was fast and furious and at times resembled an Irish Election riot. A reception to the Lewis' own vis- itors - was held in Jones Ban after the game and a few hours were_ spent in dancing, after which light iefresh- ments were served. The Lewistown visitors sere certainly young ladies and gentlemen and we hope to have the pleasure of entertaining them at some future date. Montana Well Advertised Montana has an area of 93,000,000 acres, subdivided re follows: Wooded 27,000,000; forest reserves, 20.389,000: ti,istirveyed or unavailable, 22,000,000; arable, 30.000,000. Of the latter less then one-fourth is occupied, while forest reserves are also available for homestead, says the Minneapolis Journal. That the state is being betteradvertised than ever before is proved by the fact that all Montana, lend offices hive established. new records in homestead and other eatrys; that it has been necessary to to establish 167 new postoffices within the last eighteen months to provide mail facilities for settlers; to say nothing of the new rural routes. Eastern wholesalers are sending out nfia - Aro the territory caking orders conditional upon sales within a year, or a return of the goods at the wholesalers' expense. One trav- eler explained it in this manner: - \We knoev from conversations throughout the middle west of any families that are corning to Montana, ad we want the merchants to be pre- pared for them. That is why we know there will be a demand, and In consequence we will take back ant - thing that is left over, firm in the belief that there will be none.\ Newton Stays At Shasdes Wm. Newton who has been con- ducting the Shaules hotel the past, three months and wino we announced would give up the piece last Friday has decided to continue the business. Mr. Newton has given first class sat- Isfact ion to ids boarders and we are glad to note that he will remain in charge of the plaoe. For The Newcomers N. E. HoldeiSlves Good Advice. Norman Holden, the big dry land farmer, gives out some valuable information relative to CBI , land farm- ing. \The worst mistake a dew _man - at the business can make is to attempt to grow a croa the first year.. My ad- v:ce to the new dry land farmers ii110 are taking up the heoch lands to this and other parts of Montana .and who have no experience in growing crops in an arinirsection without irri- Kahn], IS to start plowing as early as possible in thesprIng. Take a roller and harrow to the field with you, an after plowing new ground until abont 11 o'clock in the morning, hitch to the roller and toll the laixi down the same way as you plowed it. Then hitch to the harrow and go over it with ilnpleneents until you have a mulch of fine dirt about three inches deep. \This treataient puts your soil in good shape for conserving the mois- ture, you neectlo do no other work on it again during the sensed& only to go over it With s harrow occasionally, when it heeds it: If a rain comes that pacts the sell amid makes a crust en the top, get into the field with a harroU; just as soon as the soil is. dry enough to not stick to the harrow, and break this crust or your moisture will ill dieappear. If drought comes you most, harrow. Go into the field and' scrape up the dry mulch with nor hand to the damp soil about three inches below. If you see the drynes is extending down, then harrow. You should remember that three intihese of nice dry mulch on top is the farmers' water right. The practice of LarroWing alter a rain not only b eaki the crust and conserves the Leo:stare, but it also lets air into the soil. • \There are more crop failures cn dry laud farms heCauoi the soil dues nor get air than for want of moisture. When one grasps the idea that air is necessary to succeseful 'cropping, he begins to be a dry land farmer. . \Then\ is'a e diverslt of opinlok on tine depthhet , be plowed but my expedience as tough me five inches is deep enough. If. one :pions deeper and turns up poor soli te the top it takes the air a long time to er- .rich that soil. A r then five inches can be turifad up in' ,oh more cheaply than eight or or ,ene inches. The advocates of deep plowing virtually dispute capularity, thus showing. a total lack of knowledge of the princi- ples of the =actuante of soil mois- ture. \Sod land plowed, rolled and har- rowed in the spring, is ready fcr win- ter wheat to be sowed in August. After the grain is up and there comes a rain, get out with your har- rev/ and go over the land crossways of the•drill rows. The idea is to go' to the winter with as mulah over the grain as possible, for tills creerco:nes Cie evil effects.of chinooks during the sinter. \gal Turkey sheathes been found the most suesessfal by me.

Alfalfa Is a friend to the dry land farmer. If sown on summertilted soil one need - have no fear but that he'll get a good crop for the following - year. This Is one of the fee crops that can be grown without a, summer tilling, also thus saving a whole year.

One. of the biggest laud gales over Irald.le• the wegtwas conducted In Gallatin County courthouse by Joseph Okereassistant state land register. Nearly 12,000 acres of statd land ware sold at auction, prices ranging from $10 to. $52.50 per acre. Mr. Oker stated that this sale was a redord h. - esker in both prices and the amount of land sold: • More than $250,000 worth of land was sold in four hours. The terms of the payment are 15 percent down and the balance in 20.annual installments with 5 per cent interest. Must of the laud was unimproved s ae that which was 'rejected by set- tlers In this valley up to 1900, when it, was taken by the Cote At that. time farmers aud settlers did not see lit to pay the nec e erY $1.25, an arce for homesteadin The high pt ice was paid tot: a quar- ter section of land lying near Manhat- tan and which next year. It was hought by John timaneck of Friend, Neer.--Meabef4dea wher sales were made to residents of the Gallatin valley. Very little o' the land offered was passed up by tire y bidder,. Surveyors Refuse To Bid For Work. \ a Thirteen million acres of land In Montana still remains unsurveyed and the surveyor general is unable to secure contractors to do the work. In regard to this matter Surveyor General, Frank Cone, says: \These lands should be surveyed, but under the existing low ratee per mile and the recent requirements for the use of iron poets for corners, whirin are delivered only at railway poluts, surveyors refuse to bid. In theme days the high cost of living. which results In the high cost of la- bor, the government should realize that men will not lake contracts at the same ilgures as they . did during the 90s, and no matter how willing this office and state and the federal government to have these lands sur- veyed and the demands of the settlers relieved, the fact remains that. con- tracts oarmot'be let for reasons Sat - Inhaling Water.

Olive oll will serve the same purpose The point Is to ex- clude air and dirt from the burned surface, and tbla either oily substance will do. Many persons do not know that cal- lous places upon the feet may be kept smooth by the use of the pumice stone. It must not be rubbed heavily, nor must it be allowed to remove too large a callosity. If you employ it daily you will get the best results, and you should buy the smoothest procura- ble. Superfluous hair La a very usual at. alctiou, and many requests come for something to remove this unmightly growth. All such remedies must be used with great care, unless one le wise enough to prefer an herb prep- aration. when no harm need be antic- ipated. 0/1s of the beet of these herb depilatories Is the celandlne leaf. The plant must be steeped In a quart of water, and after the mixture Is cooled It should be strained and the liquid used as a wash or a compress, which may remain Upon the hair all night This process Is sure, but very slow. In time the hairs will disappear, and should they show any signs peering the celendine inns again be used. STAFFORD' Andrew Kerr was reported very sick with punemonia the lore part pf the week. ed.\
