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.

HELENA, MONTANA 4,, historical Socist:i THE ROUNDUP RECORD VOLUME VI. NO.43 MANY ATTEND FAR- MERS' INSTITUTE SUBJECTS DISCUSSED BY SPEAK- ERS LISTENED TO WITH MUCHH INTEREST. .1 large number of representative Musselshell county farmers greeted the speakers at the farmers' institute held here last Saturday. The fore- noon session was attended by farmers only but the afternoon session was held with a crowded room. Standing room was at a premium, and every due who attended felt amply repaid. Plain practical talks were given and it is an undoubted fact that the in- stitute was of great benefit to the ones who are interested in farming and its problems. At the morning session, Dr. Hart- man gave a talk on hog cholera, its causes, prevention and cure. He also urged the increase of raising of hogs for the market. 0. S. Gregg followed with a talk on trees, method of planting, selec- tion and care of the trees. He dwelt particularly on the desirability of hav- ing trees for a wind break, not only from the standpoint of comfort and beauty, but from the practical view of protection for the land as a pre- ventative of excessive erosion. Mr. Gregg's speeches at the session were highly appreciated by the homestead- er's present as Mr. Gregg knows their problems, having had the experience and gone thru the mill from start to finish. Interspersed with his sug- gestions were anecdotes of his per- sonal experiences on the little home- stead in Minnesota which was the beginning of his present beautiful farm, and this caned a particular mes- sage of encouragement to those who at present are undergoing the trials of pioneering. Mr. Gregg opened the afternoon melon with a talk on the 'selection of dairy stock. He is thg pioneer of the idea of selection of dairy herd sires. He deeply deplored the fact that so many farmers were \long on dogs and short on cows.\ He gave a plain exposition of the methods of , judging a dairy animal, making clear to all present that it did not require a technical expc:t to be an adequate judge of a good dairy animal. He told entertainingly of the selection of his first dairy herd sire which he purchased when a calf for $35 and that later became an animal famous among the dairy interests of the country. Contrary to the generally accepted idea, Mr. Gregg stated that there was no such thing in existence as a perfect dairy breed, and he strongly advised the farmers present to disregard breed in the selection of dairy cows as there were \milk makers\ and \beef makers\ among all breeds, and a milk produc- ing animal must always be chosen on her milk producing points, princi- pal among which were the big, full body, the narrow peaked shoulders, the resilient udder, the large milk glands and the full, large clear eye. Further he told them that it was not necesaary, he was sure, to go to Minnesota or Wisconsin for their dairy material Vas available in Mon- tana. Everyone felt that the after- noon talk given by Mr. Gregg alone more than compensated them for their attendance at the meeting. Dr. Hartman gave a talk as a prac- tical farmer and scientific veterinary ' on the care of work horses, dwelling at some length on the diseases to which they are liable, and the causes, prevention and cures of such dis- eases. His talk was primed full of practical suggestions and was highly appreciated. Numerous questions were asked by the farmers present and advice was given by the speaker. A. J. Walrath followed with a talk on seed selection and the great neces- sity of care in the selection of seed was emphasized, if the best results are to be obtained. in this connec- tion he prophesized that one of the principal industries of the futura in Montana would be the rai4ing of seeds for the market. He spoke of the desire of growers for Mo. tana seeds and stated that upon the corn- pleion of the Panama Canal. the markets of the world would be at hand fcr growers of seed in Montana, as the freight rate to Liverpool when the canal Is completed, will be only ROUNDUP, MUSSELSHELL COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 16, 1914 The oil tank steamer Oklahoma, the largest of its kind flying the Anterlean flag, broke in two during a storm off the New Jersey News Snapshots coast, and eight of the crew of forty were saved by the liner Bavaria, while five others were picked up by the liner Gregory Of the Week from it lifeboat.

PLEASE $2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE DISTRICT COURT PROCEEJINGS 1 CALENDAR SET AND JURY DRAWN TO REPORT FOR DUTY ON JANUARY 26. _ 5,000 MEARANS 'CITY COUNCIL Comes Home Today With Bride, a Popular Wisconsin Veen Lady. We have seen Ted Barron depart from Roundup many times, and tetch time hope has sprung anew in ,:tir hearts that he would fulfill his mani- fest destiny cf becoming a whole man, low these many times have we been doomed to disappointment. Yet we have been loth to rebuke him harshly as we took it from his saddened cast of countenance that he was just as disappointed as we were. But today Is a red-letter day for our Ted re- turned with a companion to cheer those darker hours when the wires of life get tangled and only the call of woe seems to get an answer. This fair lady, formerly Miss Caroline Hatch, one of the most popular young ladies of Richland, Wis., is heartily welcomed to Roundup by the many friends of her husband, and The Rec- crd desires to be numbered among those friends who wish the happy couple the fullest measure of joy and prosperity in their journey togethcr down the long trail. It would seem absolute redundacy to make mention of Ted Barron were it not for the fact that there may be some benighted oorner in the universe where his fame has not been spread. Hence we will state as competent authorities that he is a seemingly young man who, when not engaged in the arduous work of sitting on the lid of the Roundup tennischampionship may be seen giving a life -like Imita- tion of being the competent manager of the Billings & Musselshell Tele- phone Co. And yet, with all these evidences of grace, we know that he is undeserving of the reward that has come to him, and while we are al- ways glad to see some one get better than he merits, it is hard to overcome the memory of the many times Ted has disappoirtted us. But then he has always been a lucky boy. And so may he always remain.

After the adjournment of the regu- lar meeting, Mr. Walrath was asked by some of the men interested in the Musselshell Valley Irrigation Distric. to give them a talk on the proposed projett. He Spoke with authority, as he has been thru the same mill in the Gallatin, and he urged those present by all means to go thru with the project if eonditions were such as the preliminary surveys showed. He gave much valuable advice on the adjudication and decree of water rights and the best methods of hand- ling these questions. A short session was held in the evening when general topics of in- terest were discussed, the meeting adjourning early to give present an opportunity to attend the lecture riven by Dr. Colledge• IN U. 8. CHARCE HAS hiEETING SECRETARY GARRISON GIVES OR- DERS TO INTERNE REFUGEES AT FORT BLISS, TEXAS. PRESIDIO, TEX., Jan. 12. -Six generals of the Mexican federal army, 3,300 fugitive colliers, and 1,000 ref- ugees who were driven out of Ojin- aga, Mexico, by General Villa's rebels, were put in readiness today for a 4 days' march afoot 67 miles to Marfa, Texas. The soldiers will be interned at Fort Bliss indefinitely. At Marts, the nearest railroad sta- tion, the federal soldiers who sought asylum in the United States after the defeat by the rebels will be guarled by the border patrol pending their final disposition by the war depart- ment. Amo..g the civilians are 1,207 women, as officially counted by Major McNamee. They also have 1,000 fed- erei army horses and mules. The wareabouts of Generals Orozco and Salazar, commanders of federal volunteers, who fled from Ojinaga with 700 cavalrymen, was unknown to the rebels. The arrest of Rafeal Orozco's secretary, on the road be- tween Presidio and Maria, gave rise to the belief that the general was somewhere on this side of the river. General Villa, who ts in Ojinaga, stand l some of his troops to Chihua boa and he himself expected to leave for that city at once to direct his campaign southwards towards Mexico City. Hundreds of rifles and numerous field pieces were found in Ojinaga after the federal retreat. The field pieces were those which General Mercado wished to bring to American soil because he had no ammunition for them, but which he was forced later to abandon. General Villa said he would use all the rifles and guns in his fututre campaign against Huerta forces.
