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.

TOIID Smashes -World's Recor d W ITH a 50 per cent increase in production over any previous year the Billings factory of the Great Western Sugar company has finished slicing bets with a to- tal production of 906,000 hundred pound sacks of sugar during the 1924 campaign which has just closed. ,The year's record establishes the Billings factory as the premier beet sugar mill of the United States and establishes a high tote! which has never before been reached, according to company officials. At the — close of the campaign, there remains in storage in the two great warehouses of the factory, 465.460 sacks of sugar or nearly 23,00e tons, about one-half of the entire pia:duct. It will take 1.50a cars to remove the entire produce or 19 trains of 80 cars each or a continuoue string of cars about 12 miles long. In the manufacture of the sugar, 285,000 tons of beets were used. Farmers were paid for a considerably higher number of tons, the shrink- age being estimated at about .1.11__Der cent. Payments of $7 a ton have thus far been paid to farmers, making a to- tal payment to date of about $2,200,- 000, with the probability of other bonuses to come. depending upon the net price of segar. The factory work provided con- tinuous employment for about 110 days for 700 men.

Further pursuing his studies and teaching, he managed to save up enough money to put him thru medical college. After the Civil War, he began the practice of medicine in the new oil section of Pa., and often rode horse -back thru the woods to reach and relieve those who were seri- ously ill. He was a student of nature, knew and could easily recognize most of the medicinal plants growing in the woods. Later, he moved to Buffalo,N.Y. where he launched his favorite remedies, and, in a short time, they were sold by every drug- gist in the land. Today, the name of this man, Dr. R. V.

Most. over was about 30 per cent, making about 1,000 different men who were employed during the campaign. There were about 3,000 Mexicans and 600 of other nationalities who did the hand labor in raising the ets. About 1500 farmers raised beets on 31,000 acres, an average 20 acres to the farmer Most of thy' farmers had other laobr in con- ne tion with hauling beets and other op rations besides the hand labor. Produced 7,000 Tons of Pulp. The factory also produced 7,000 tons of pulp which is being used by farmers and stockmen in fattening 7,800 head of cattle and 26.000 sheep in the Billings district. It is estimated that more han 10,- 000, cars were used in hauling beets to the factory, hauling coal and oth- er necessary material in manufactur- ing and hauling to market of the finished product. Of these cars. 7,000 were used in the hauling of beets; 1,500 for sugar ;and 1,000 for 50,000 tons of coal, while many other cars were used for hauling lime rock, coke, sulphur and other mMerials used in the manufactur- ing process. A number of cars of beet pulp were also hauled short dis- tances for fermeri t Payments of $'17: a ton have thus far been made to farmers making the total payment to date about $2.- 200,000 with the probability of oth- er bonuses to come. Eight Million Bags in 19 Years. The completion of the nineteenth campaign gives some interesting to- tals in the operation of the plant. During a period of 19 years 8,335.- 784 bags of sugar have been made . The factory has used 586,174 tons of coal, nearly all from Montana; 206,280 tons of lime rock, 20.435 tons of coke and 1,993,999 pounds of sulphur. There has also been produced 712,- 143 tons of pulp, enough to fatten 101,735 cattle or 915,975 sheep. To fatten the same amount of stock would require 91,562 tons of hay which, at $8 a ton would have cost $732,496. Future Seems Bright. In speaking 'of the year's cam- paign W. P. Hogarty, general man- ager, said: \The outlook for the beet sugar industry is the best in years. Results have again shown that with a beet crop in the proper rotation, a farmer on 160 acres can make more money than when it is left out of his plans. Big Acreage Next Season. \The acreage grown in 1925 in Montana will be even greater than in the past year due to the stimus lative effect of the two other fac- ories contemplated on the Lower Yel- lowstone and the Milk river dis- tricts. \In spite of the decline in sugar markets, prospects are looking to- ward better prices later on. I have evry reason to believe that farmers will receive a very satisfactory price when the final payments are made. Future prices are looked upon by the manufacturers as likely to be good for an indefinite period. __!.The season nrhich_has closed has been the largest and best in our history and to its success farmers and laborers and men in every de- partmeat have contributed. Both the harvest and campaign were brought to a close without delay or losses and in record time, considering that the total output of sugar gave an in- crease of 300,000 bags over last year. With the enlarged capacity of the plap, new records were made in speed nd efficiency and the Billings factory has climbed to first place in sugar production.\ Farmers Hold Crops. Between 35 and 40 per cent of the 1924 crop of wheat is being held in reserve by the wheat farmers of northern and northeastern Montana, a rough estimate of that section of the state reveals. A. L .

HA. 4111.1 HAMILTON PLANT l'UNDS ARRANGED TO CLEAR OFF INDEBTEDNESS Ole FRUIT COMPANY I A special meeting of the stock- holders of the Bitter Root, Pro. I ducts company was held at Ham - then recently for the purpose of raising funds to clear off the in- debtedness of the company which accumulated during the first year's operation as a result of curtailed operations occasioned by light crops of fruits and vegetables in the valley last year, which reduced production over 75 per cent. According to a report read at the meeting the total debts of the com- pany amount to about $6,000. It was voted to raise $3,000 of this sum within 16 days by selling additional stock to the members, and offer of C. A. Crawford, one of the promoters of the company, was accepted for the loan of the $2,000 needed. Mr. Crawford agreed to advance that amount on the company's note for one year, without interest .

The stockholders expressed satis- faction over the marketing methods used by the company stating that the prices receied by the members for farm products were in nearly all cases fully up to expectations . The gross sales of the company last year, as glen out at the meeting, were: strawberries, 5,924 crates, $14,111.75; cold packed berries, 13.468 pounds, $1,411.05; other fruits, $2,938.07; vegetables. $1,945.- 92. Total, $20,406.77, According to the report, the Bit- ter !loot ever -bearing strawberry top- ped the market over other varieties, local growers averaging a net price of $2.15 a crate, compared to $1.90 received at Hood River, Oregon, and $1.78 at Puyallup, Washington. Summer Fallowing and Diversification Brinv Success to The Agriculturists of Hill County iCootinued from the Fenture Page) land about 22 miles due north of Havre has established a precedent for continued success. Mr. Couch uses summer fallow methods ex- clusively, and has about 200 acres In crop each year. The actual av-- erage yield of wheat on the Couch farm is above 20 bushels per acre. covering a period of years. He is also feeding 50 head of stock and raises poultry and hogs, shipping a carload of the latter each season. In addition to raising feed for his stock, he has also marketed 5,000 In tha railroad shops in Havre for seven years, from 1905 to 1912, and saved enough money during that time to enable him to commence farming operations. He has made steady progress, using summer fallow methods from the beginning. He liesenot experienced a single' crop failure, and it is needles to state that it will never be necessary for him to return to the railroad shops for a living .

It is needless to state that Mr Couch is well to do. His worth would approximate $50,000. An iffetance of results obtained through the efforts of the entire family is recorded at the Leo Wolfe ranch, about 25 miles west of Havre Mr. Wolfe, with the assistance of his wife and daughter, actually put in the following crop in 1924: wheat, 720 acras; barley, 70 acres; oats, 40 acres; rye. 60 acres and corn 80 acres. The Wolfe family wheat crop totalled about 15,000 bushels and sold for more than $25,000. John Peterson, farming 16 miles northwest of Havre, won first prize In the Montana Development as . aoci- ation competition for Hill county. This prize was offered for the high- est yield of wheat on summer fal- lowed land. Mr. Peterson's yield of 39 bushels to the acre headed the list . Z. A. White, who resides 28 miles north of Havre, won third prize in this same competition, with a yield of 37 bushels to the acre. At prices now being paid for wheat at Havre. this yield would show a return equivalent to $65 an acre. Adolph Wieczorek, whose farm is located only two and one-half miles southeast of town, has demonstrated that perseverance wins. He worked 500 bushel crop of wheat that he carried over from 1923. Chester Spicher, who owns land about 35 miles west of Havre, has lust completed the marketing of a 35,000 bushel wheat crop.
