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.

DETROIT, May 7.—The Ford plant at Detroit alone would support a city from 75,000 to 100,000 people and the branch assembling plants are located at Buffalo, Cambridge, Chicago, Co- lumbus, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kan- sas City, Long Island City, Los Ange- les, Memphis, Minneapolis, Philadel- phia, Pittsburgh, Portland, Ore., San Francisco, Seattle and St. Louis in this country, and besides those there is the Ford Motor Company, Ltd., of Canada, with a factory at Ford, On- tario, across the Detroit river from Detroit, and Canadian service sta- tions at Monteral, Toronto, Vancou- ver, London, Ontario, Calgary, Hamil- ton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. Then there are the Manchester, England, factory and service stations at Ham- burg. Germany, and Paris, France. The whole purpose of this gigantic system of branch plants is to facili- tate manufacturing and shipping and to -assure Ford owners in every part of the world the highest type of ser- vice after they have purchased their car. But not only do these branch fac- tories, each one of them a great in- stitution in itself, perform this func- tion, but they are backed up by the selling and distributing organizaton of the ccmpany which includes indi- vidual agents in every community, frcm the cites down to the hamlet. Every cog in this wheel of industry work sto perfetc this service. Every Ford agent, no matter how few cars he handles, is required by his contract to carry a supply of Ford parts so that Ford owners never have their cars out of commission, except for a few days, or generally only hours, unless the car has met with a serious accident. If it were not for the branch as- sembling plants the Ford company could not market its enormous output, because railroad facilities could not be provided for shipping the cars if they were all assembled at the De- troit factory. But shipped in knock- down form, a single car will carry as many motor cars as could be carried In a train if the cars were shipped in the ordinary fashion. Of course all the parts are tested before shipping and standarisation has made it easy for the assemblers, and when these parts arrive at the assembling plants here and in the various other cities, it requires but little labor to put the cars together and they are soon In proper running condition.

Railroad Company Declares New Post Office Is Out of Eighty Rod Limit. The information that the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad will in a week or ten days notify the gov- ernment that they will not carry the United States mail between the depot and the new postoffice leaked out here this week, coming apparently from a reliable source. Division Su- perintendent Spencer was in the city last week, and upon his instructions Station Agent C. K. Clarke meas- ured the distance between the two points. It was found that from the baggage room door at the depot to the rear door of the postoffice, where the mall is delivered, is about 150 feet more than 80 rods. The matter has been presented to the general ofifee at Seattle, and it Is probable that the railroad company will dis- continue handling the mall within a short time. Should the railway company formal- ly notify the government that it will discontinue carrying the mail a pe- culiar situation will arise, and it may result in the government readvertis- ing for bids for a new postoffice. It is understood that the lease on the present quarters may be terminated at any time, and It is apparent that INCOME TAX UP TO AGED WOMAN GORED BY BULL; DEATH EXPECTED --- - Mother of \Doc\ Weast Well Known Here. Attacked After Going Alone to Corrall. IIED LODGE, May 1.—Attacked by a bull while she was alone in a cor- ral, Mrs. Weast, 70 year old mother of . Jacob, William and \Doc\ Weast, prominent Carbon Co. ranchers, was so seriously injured by the vicious animal Tuesday that it is feared that she will die. Mrs. Weast had gone from the house to the corral at her ranch on Red Lodge creek and when Olin did not return within a reason- able time one of the hired hands went in search of her. The aged woman was found lying beside a fence which she had appar- ently attempted to climb to escapo the rushes of the animal. She had not been quick enough and the bull had overtaken her and butted her against the fence. Mrs. Weast suf- fered from internal hemorrhages, and had four ribs on her left side crushed in and her collar bone broken In two places. The Weast brothers anti Mrs. Riley Fredericks and Mrs. Tunicliffe, daughters, were summoned to their mother's bedside. J. E. Lane, the well known Lewis- town lumber baron, was in the city yesterday.

Reeves was arrested last evening by Sheriff risco, on being advised by Sheriff Guthrie of Still- water county that the man was want- ed there on a charge of having dis- posed illegally of mortgaged proper- ty. The man brought three carloads of cows here several days ago, stating that they were brought from Wis- consin. Later, the owner of the cows sent another man here as lie had been informed that the man Reeves was not to be depended upon. Slmriff Guthrie arrived on last night's train and will take the prisoner back for trial. • • • The carnival held at the Roundup schools last Friday evening was a de- cided success from the financial standpoint and from the standpoint of entertainment. A big street pa- rade started the ball rolling and from that time until the merrymakers dis- persed late at night, hilarity reigned supreme. Sideshows with their quo- ta of barkers and ticket sellers, of- fering inducements in the line of spectacular amusements kept the crowd moving and barred any tire- some intervals of waiting. Refresh- ments of various kinds were on sale and all stands were well patronized. The net receipts of the entertain- ment were something over $100. rather than pay an additional $50 or I THE HIGHEST COURT $75 a month for carrying the mail thei government will seek a location cis- I WASHINGTON, May 7.—The first May 1, the Lepper & Garl ranch on er to the depot so that this expense Flatwillow passed into the hands of ease to reach the supreme court in- ks Wisconsin purchasers, the Flat- may be eliminated.

ARCHIE BOWGESS, 15 YEARS OLD, COMMITS SUICIDE Hangs Himself With Short Rope In Homesteader's Shack North Of Town. Archie Bowgess, the fifteen year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Orville E. Bowgess, committed suicide last Tues- day night in a vacant claim shack near the home of his parents. The desperate deed was without doubt committed in a fit of temporary In. sanity. The deceased together with his brother had been visiting with some neighbors on Tuesday afternoon and during the course of the after- noon, Archie had disagreed with his brother and they had had a little fuss. On being restrained by others present from fighting with his broth- er, he made the statement that every- body seemed to have it in for him, and left for another neighbor's house stating to somebody that a good six-sooter was to be found in that house. Nobody was at home there but the boy remained there by him- self all afternoon and it was later dis- covered he had searched all thrtt a trunk in the house. In the evening, lie was seen to go towards the shack of a bachelor, with whom he was in the habit of visiting and his parents thought nothing of it, believing that as soon as he had recovered from his lit of ill temper, he would return home. In the morning, a team which was bringing some supplies to the claim shack of the bachelor who was away front home, found the boy hang- ing (lead Inside the house, suspended by a short. rope from one of the ceiling joists. Archie and his folks are well known here, all the children having attended the local school, and his tragic death is a great shock to their many friends here. Anchie was a bright boy, a hard worker and appar- ently had a bright future before him. The fullest measure of sympathy of the entire community Is extended to the bereaved family. EVELYN DID THE BEST SHE COULD Butte Daily Post: Evelyn Nesbit Thaw gave further proof last night that it pays to advertise. A crowd- ed house at the Broadway saw the one-time notorious woman who has capitalized a hateful past—and mak- ing money by the venture. Happily the audience didn't expect very much of Mrs. Thaw. There was this to be said about the show—it was clean as those things go. Last night's pat- rons of the drama, however, had ex- pected something different—they had not anticipated that Evelyn's little stunt would be a pantomime. Per- haps it was just as well. They were willing to concede that Mrs. Thaw did the best she could, and that was something anyway. Redwood sawdust is being used by vienyardists in California for pack- ing fresh table grapes.
