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.

Sudduth, of dry farm fame, who owns several thousand acres of land near Broadview on the Billings & Northern, has broke out in a new place and announces that he will estab- lish a hog raising ranch on the Mussel- shell. As a diet he will grow and fat- ten hogs on what he pleases to call \alfalfa tea,\ a brew whieh he has been experimenting with. It is the intention of Dr. Sudduth to raise and fatten 5,000 hogs annually and they are to he fed on the brew made by grinding alfalfa, barley, win- ter wheat and other cereals together and cooking them. According to the expe- riments of the doctor alfalfa stocks con- tain more protein than many grains and by cooking .. it will be secured and fed in slops, experiments along this line showing it to be a wonderfully fatten- ing feed. That thegrowingof hogs in this local- ity will shortly become a leading indus- try is assured and the experiments be- ing conducted by Dr. Sudduth and others will be watched with interest by our farmers. Alfalfa has long been recognized as a remarkable feed for the growing of hogs, and no locality under the sun can surpass this section of Mon- tana in the production of alfalfa. Buries', wheat and corn can be raised in unlimited quantities and fed for the \finishing\ process. Cholera, the dread of eastern \hog farmers,\ is unknown in the mountain country. Price of hogs is always a little in advance of the eastern markets and the demand ap- parently exceeds the supply. All of which would seem to recommend the r industry to Montana farmers as a win- ner and money maker. vIdINNIMINNIMS. N H AU, BRICK Manufacturer AND r Plans and Specifications a Specialty.

C. HUTTON, Prop. Hardin, - - Montana Day Dreams. The Rev. Jerry Rounder, in last Sun- day's sermon is the Anaconda Standard, says \we are all dreamers\ and avers that \some have odd dreams.\ He says \some dream of hidden treasurers, some of receiving handsome bequests, some of palaces, and others of modest and comfortable homes, some of this and ,some of that.\ Still others, he says, \dream of lair v,.ciren,\ but he says, \to dream of more than one fair women is the sign of impending trouble.\ \Day dreaming, says the Rev. Jerry, \is useless, but is - also harmless unless indulged in to excess. To dream is better than to repine. Day dreaming is the rdverse of worrying and profitless apprehension._ It is, better to hope than to worry; it is better to dream than to brood. Life's day dreams are seldom realized, but the dreaming of them is a pleasant diversion and often a, happy relief from the hard, bitter realities of life. Day dreaming is Optimism with the roof taken off. \The man who is content to dream and let it go at that never gets there. Dreams are never realized by sitting still and dreaming. The world is for the people who do. The people who do things don't always get there, but the people who don't do never get there. When day dreams come true it is through hard work, not through dream ing. \When we have what we want we always want something else. We think we would be perfectly satisfied if we could get some very desirable thing, but none of tar are satisfied for very long. There will always be new things to be hoped for ae long as men are men. We may realize a million day dreams, and then we will dream a million more.\ After the Smelters. President Roosevelt, at the request of the attorneys for the Deer Lodge Farm- ers' association, has taken up the mat- ter of the proposed injunction against the Washoe and other Montana smelt- ers. The complaint alleges that the fumes from the Washoe and other smelters are damaging the forest and all vegetation in the vicinity of the smelters. The farmers claim their crops are ruined and their fa,nns are becoming worthless as a result of the smoke' nuisance, and ask for an injunction pro- hibiting the smelters operating until such time as means are devised to remedy the evil. At a recent hearing in Washington, attended by representa- tives of all interest it was settled that a thormigh investigation will precede any possible action by the government until present smoke conditions are remedied by desulpherization. Business men and all business inter- ests in the immediate vicinity of the mining districts of Montana are aroused to action at the possibility of a great calamity befalling their localities. In 'fact it is a matter of interest to the farming and lumbering districts as well. The enforced closing of the smelters of Montana would be a blow to the in- dustrial pursuits of the state beyond realization. SIAM meetings have been held in the business centers of the western part of the state and in every instance strong resolutions have been adopted and forwarded to Washington protesting against the proposed inter- ference of the federal government.. The Anaconda Standard, referring to the meetings, says that \the action taken all along the line indicate the ex- tent of the anxiety awakened by the threat of action hostile to the smelting plant in , Anaconda. Yesterday the universal expression of wonder was that the president should go at this matter at the moment when the famous smoke trial is so close to its finish in the federal court. Quite as universally the conclusion was, after news had come from Washington, that time spent in wonder over what Presi- dent Roosevelt does, or why he does it, is time lost. The threatened communities have de- cided that they must do what they can to save themselves from wreck. What' will come of this effort the Standard does not undertake to say, but we will all make the effort, anyhow. Colton Sees Prosperity. Deputy County Surveyor E. W. Col- ton, who spent several days in Hardin and vicinity last week, on returning to Billings had the following good words to say for Hardin and the Big Horn valley to a ro3porter: Work is Progressing nicely on the Big Horn High Line ditch and the Har- din dietrict will be the center of agri- culture activity next season. The settlers in the Hardin district are energetic as is being evidenced by the number of county improvements in the way of roads and bridges, many of which are being laid out and construct- ed. The numerous new ( irrigation enter- prises have made the construction of several bridges a necessity ih that sec- tion and all of the structures being put in are of steel and of. a very substantial nature. Church Notice. Since this world has two masters, the devil and Jesus Christ, and.since _ everyliody on earth is serving one or the other every day, bad we not better ask ourselves this question? Am I serving God or Satan? It will be too late some day, \as it is appointed unto men once to die; but after death the j udgment. \ Subject: Why does the world need Jesus Christ? Text; \Look unto me and be saved, all ye ends of the earth.\ \For the wages of sin is death, (that is eternal, and deserved punishment after this life); but the gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord.\ This will be an expository sermon and a special invitation is extended to you. Hardin, 10:30. 'Foster, 2:30. Harris Gets Land Office. A telegram received in Billings yes- terday from Senator Carter announces that Charles L. Harris will be the next register of the local land office, to suc- ceed E. E. Esselstyn, resigned. Both Senator Carter and Senator Dixon recommended Mr. Harris. The tele- gram read: - -- \We have recommended Charles L. Harris to the president for the position of register of the Billings land office. THOMAS H. CARTER.\ Formal notice of the appointment of Mr. Harris is expected within the next few tayA. There still remains the position of receiver to fill, owing to the resignation of C. C. Bever. Settling In Montana., Scaracity of Water on the Maxwell land grant in Mexico is causing many residents of that country to seek homes elsewhere, where the water supply is sufficient to raise profitable crops. On Sunday last twenty-five settlers from that locality arrived at Huntley to locate on the Billings bench, north of Huntley on land pander the Billings Land and Irrigatioti company's canal. They are Hollanders and 'many of their country- men have settled on the bench prior to this time and are satisfied with the country and canditione. It is said that not leas than 100 families and ten cars of household effects are expected to arrive before Christmas. BEVER RESIGNS 411•\••••••••••••• Land Office Has No Charms For Pres- ent Official. C. C. Bever, receiver of the U. S. land office at Billings has resigned his position and will hereafter devote his time and attention to his ranch interests in Sweet Grass county. Shortly after Mr. Bever accepted the appointment as receiver of the local land office, he purchased large ranch interests in Sweet Grass county. Tie lcesult of last year's crop returned sue} inualitorne profits that he decided to re sign his official position and turn his at tention to ranching. Only for the far- that e .Mr. Esselstyn resigned as register early in . August Mr. Bever would have steped down and Out before this. The resignation of Mr. Bever has been expecte). for ,some time by his close friends. He has made a splendid official and will retire from public ser- vice with a clean and honorable record. He is the president of the Billings Chamber of Commerce and has the reputation of having done more for Yellowstone county and eastern Mon- tana than prehaps any other man in this sectian of the state. He will still, retain his residence in Billings and give of his services to all matters beneficial to this section of Montana , . Who will succeed Mr. Bever in the land office has not been announced. Northwestern Buys N. P. A Helena dispatch states that the Northwestern is soon to take over the Northern Pacific road and that the Great Northern will be forced to turn to return to the use of . its old depot instead of using the depot of the Northern Pacific. The sale of the N. P. tone Northwestern has been rumor - for 'me time but no official announce- ment has been made so far. • Forcing Local Option Question. , Advocates of prohibition, temperance, or what ever it may be termed, are forcing the question -of local option in Yellowstone county to the extent of their ability. The iittestion has been agitated in Billings foit 80111e time past, and the last couple of weeks the local option advocates have carried the tight into other parts of the county. Peti- tions are being circulated throughout the county, one of which has been gen- erally signed by residents of the Big Horn valley from below Foster up to and including,. Hardin. The petition reads: To the Board of County Commission- ers tif Yellowstone County, Montana: In accordanbe with the laws of the state of Montana and under and by virtue of the chapter therein relating to local option, we, the undersigned qualified voters for members of the leg- islative assembly in Yellowstone county, Montana, petition the board of county commissioners of Yellowstone county to order an election to he held at the place of holding elections for county officers, to take place within forty days after, the reception of this petition to determine whether or not any spiritu- ous or -malt liquors, wine or cider, or any intoxicating liquors or drinks may be sold within the limits of Yellowstone county, state of Montana. The said election to be held for the aforesaid purpose in the manner and form prescribed for such elections by the general election laws of the state of Montana. Charged With Killing Steer. A. C. Smith. of Pompey's Pillar, was arrested Saturday last charged with killing a steer belonging to V. B. Mc- Comb & Son. He is alleged to have butchered the animal near the home of a Mr. Fanner, who has taken up a home on an island in the Yellowstone river, and that he also sold a quarter of the beef to Mr. Farmer. Smith claims as a defense that he had made arrange - Merits with a gentlemen by the nitme of Logan to kill one of his steers and that he thought it was ,a Logan animal he killed. A visit to the scene of the killing by Sheriff Herford, when the hide was secured, developed the fact that the brand on it had been cut out. Mr. McComb knew nothing of the case until notified by the officers at Billings that the arrest had .been made and asking him to come to Billings and look into it. He went up Tuesday morning and we are informed the officers claim to have all the evidence necessary to secure conviction. Smith has been bound over . to the district court his bond being fixed at $750. County Division. The people . of Coluintms have renew- ed their efforts for the formation of a new county, acquiring the territory from the counties of Yellowstone, Sweet (Irmo and Carbon, with Columbus as the county seat. State Senator Annin of this county, arid a resident of Colum- bus, will present and urge the hill at the forthcoming session of the legisla tare. Considerable opposition will de- velop from Carbon and Sweet Grass counties and the fate of the efforts put forth by our friends up Columbus way hangs in the balance. But they would get nothing if they did not rusk for it and their aspirations are at leant cotn mendable.
