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.
iltaiL L\A ' i - ANN S9e1OU MUM\ \ ON THE ROUNDUP RECORD VOLUME VII. NO. 2 ROUNDUP, MUSSELSHELL COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1914. PART ONE $2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE CITY POLITICS LIVENING UP— ELECTION MONDAY Several New Aspirants for City Of- fices File Their Nominating Petitions. Roundup city politics have been showing more form during the past I week. Several new aspirants for city offices have turned up and tiled their nominating petitions. For a time it appeared that the election would turn out a tame, one-sided fight, but it has now taken on all the fashionable angles and promises to be a hummer from the stroke of the gong next Mon- day morning. There are three candidates for may- or and even it this wre not strictly a no -gambling town it is doubtful if there would be much betting on any one of the candidates. Mr. Grant who has been in the field the longest of the mall should have the advantage. Mr. Newton has been plugging along raking into line his supporters and they are to say the least, not a negli- gible quantity. Wm. Evans, the can- didate on the Labor ticket is making a good showing and will probably prove himself an opponent worthy of the steel of the other aspirants. So far it has been a very good natured fight, and either one of the candidates elected will probably fill the chair of I Mayor with very good grace. The office of treasurer is much , sought after, four having entered the lists. The candidates are: C. E. Da- vison, S. H. Clarke, John R. Fitz, and Elmer Schefsiek. The last named is the candidate on the labor ticket and John Fitz has been endorsed by the Civic Improvement league. Leaving those specific endorsements aside, each candidate seems to have an even break and the silent vote is the vote that is going to count. The office of police magistrate is sought after by three men. Judge McVay was the first to announce him- self, followed by J. E. Potts, Esquire, who in turn was followed by the pres- ent judge, Cedersteen. Mr. McVay has been endorsed by the labor tic- ket and is conceded to be the candi- date most likely to carry sway the prunes. The aldermanic race is a warm one in two of the wards, the dank and bloody Third, however being in the ring with only one candidate, namely E. J. Rose and he doesn't seem to worry much over his election. In the second ward, Joe Flaherty, H. P. Nelson sod e'leett Schroeder have ta- ken a hand and will call for a show- down. Inasmuch as the second ward is in the close proximity of the rail- road, Mr. Flaherty is thought to have a little edge ott the deal and may land the office. The first ward has three candidates for the position of alderman. They are: H. P. Lambert, G. T. Bragstad and Ilerman Seitzinger. The absence of fever heat in the contest in the third ward is noticeable. It seems that the candidates there are not losing any sleep over the question. There seems to be more apathy over the outcome of this election than over previous elections. This may be due to the quality of material represented in the candidates or pos- sibly the mild spring weather may have soemthing to do with it. MOOSE MAKE MERRY Lodge Entertains Large Number of Guests at Smoker Last Friday Evening. The Moose lodge last Friday even- ing gave a smoker to a large number of invited guestls.

TORREON IS TAKEN Federal Stronghold Falls Before Villa After Eleven Days of Fighting. Gomez Palac!o, Mexice, Apr, 2—Gen- eral Villa occupied Torreon tonight. Some of the federals, who had been fighting on the outskirts of the town, ed, but a large number of prisoners, who had been defending the barracks sod street barricades, were captured. The soldiers were exhausted treat lighting, and when it became known that the enemy had been routed, most of them fell asleep in the streets, wherever they were. The streets are full of dead and wounded. Jaurez, Apr. 2.—Torreon fell com- pletely into the hands of the rebels at 10:20 o'clock benight, according to announcement made here tonight by Gen. Ventustiano Carranza. The news was first announced to the world when the bugler in front of Carranza's restdence blew the stac- cato notes of victory. The victory Carrel= said, was sounded in Jua- rez even before it was heard in Tor- reon, Villa delaying out of compli- ment to his chief. The rebel loss in the campaign is sad to be welt over 2,000 killed and wounded. Trains loaded with the lat- ter have been arriving daily at Chi- huahua for the last week. The rebel commander moved with a rapidity hitherto unknown in Mexi- can warfare. He worked his men in shifts and as one shift became ex- hausted, he sent fresh hosts against the enemy.

In a statement from the files of the state insurance commissioner at Helena of the 32 life , nsurance companies doing business in the state, the home company wrote 75 per cent of the nsurance written by all companies during the last year.

STUBBLING IN OF GRAIN UNPROFITABLE The stubbling in of grain is being practiced more or less in the wheat sections of the Northwest. By stub - biting in grain is meant the seeding of grain on fields that have not been plowed eince the removal of the pre- vious crop. There are apparent ad- vantages and dsadvantages in the practce. The advantages lie in say- ing of time and equipment In plowing, in the plumper and better quality of kernels and in the larger area that may be covered. The disadvantges are that the yields, on an average, :are about one-third less and occas- sionally both seed and labor ar thrown away. The straw is commonly short- er and in an adverse year is hard to bind into firm bundles that will not scatter. The heirs dry out quicker than on plowed ground and are hard er to plow the following year while - the physical conditon of the soil is not as good for the subsequent crop. Weeds, notably Russian thsitles and tumbling weeds, are much more num- erous on stubbled In fields, as are also insects in some cases. The re- flections upon one's credit and stand- ing as a farmer must also be listed among the disadvantages. In response to inquiry sent out my, the Office of Farm Management 144 farmers in widely scattered parts of North Dakota stated that the stubbing itt of grain was practiced in their vicinity. The experience and obser- lotion of 87 1-p per cent of these men caused them to declare unfavorably teward the practice. Tell and one- half per cent qualified their state- ments and specified the particular con- ditions under which satisfactory re- sults had been obtained. The re- maining 2 per cent did not declare either for or against. The qualified statements concerning the practice are as follows: If the ground has been deeply spring plowed the year before and is rich, loose, flee from weeds and sown early, stubbling in is all right. In a few instances wherr the stubble -was burned off in the spring better results were secured than where the stubble was not burn- ed. A few indorsed press drills for this work. From the evidence of these farmers It would seem to be generally unwice to follow this practice. If farmers would use foresight in planning their year's work the stubbling in of grain would rarely be necessary. The rpactice is usually followed because more work has been undertaken than could properly be accomplished in the time available. A better under- standing by farmers of the average length of season and the average day's work would tend to greatly reduce the number of cases where stubbling
