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.

A meeting of the Hardin Commercial Club will be held in the office of Rank- in & Mitchell tomorrow night, Decem- ber 19th. A fall attendance of old members is desired. Important work for the club in the very near future makes it not only desirable but necee- Mary that the entire membership should take an active part. Several new mem- bers will be enrolled•at the meeting Saturday night and the date set for the first of several very important meet- ings in the near future. Don't forget the time and place, Saturday night, at Rankin & Mitchell's office. Another Brick Residence. A. Rousseau is getting the material on the ground for a four room brick cottage, 24x28 feet, the site being on Custer Avenue between 4th and 5th streets. He expects to start work on the foundation the first of next week and will push the building to comple- tion as rapidly as possible. Mr. Rous- seau already has a renter for the build- ing, a gentleman from Oklahoma who will engage in business in Hardin and who is anxious to move in at the earliest possible date. And so it goes— Hardin is building up .apidly and the bniklings are of a clam that denote permanency and confidence in the fu- ture of the city by the owners. Will Build Jail. The board of etrunty commissioners of Yellowstone county will build a jail in Hardin in the very 'mar future. Bids for the construction of the same will be opened at the office of the county clerk in Billinirs at 10 o'clock a. December 81st. The plans and speci- fications, which are on tile with the county clerk, provide for a building 12x16 feet, with solid concrete wall two feet thick. The floor and ceiling will also be of concrete. Inside, al- though not included in the contract for the btelding, will he placed, a steel cage, with a sleeping capacity. for four. : Similar jails will .he built'at Custer, Huhtley , and Laurel. Commissioner Buria states that it is the intention of the board to have the four buildings erected at once and that the cages will be purchased and placed in the build- ings at the same time. The Hardin jail will be located on Cheyenne Ave- nue, between the Curry & Cumegys livery barn and the Lewis blecksmith shop, the Lincoln Land company do- nating the lot for that purpose. Spokane Apple Show. According to well known horticul- turalists who attended the big apple show at Spokane the finest apples ter the McIntosh variety on exhibit were from Yellowstone county. This fact was conceded by the judges appointed to pass on the display. It is declared that Montana is the home of. the McIntosh Red apple and that there is a brilliant , future in store for, this section of the state in the fruit industry is certain. The big apple show just closed was a success far beyond the expectations of promoters. Exhibits were on hand from almost every northwestern state, and also from West Virginia, South Carolina, Missouri. and as far east as New York. The states of the middle west were all well represented. Prep- arations for another show next year are already in progress and it is expected that the shoW next year will be bigger and better. All the prominent exhibitors this year have assured the management that they will have better exhibits for 1909 and many big apple growers of the east have written that they will enter their products in many tlasses. Beet Crop( 1908. The 1908 beet crop in the territory tributary to the Billings factory is har- vested and more than three -fourths of the crop has been delivered at the fac- tory. The report of the factory man- agement shown that the, total beet crop for the season amounted to 115,000 tons, bringing to the beet farmers the neat little sum of $575,000. The report also shows that the average yield per acre on old ground WM 15 tons, while the average on all ground was 12 tons. Value of the la.ncl, based on the sugar beet crop, Imo per acre. Saturday last thejactory distributed $200,000 among the beet raisers for beets received between the 1st and 15th of November. There will be two more pay days and it is estimated that close to $700,000 will be distributed for the season. The factory is running on an average of 1,200 tons of beets each day against 1,000 tons last year. The fac- tory is now running to its full capacity and t,be officers ansert that? in another year or two the situation will demand other factories in Yellowstone county. Ferment in the Big Hone - valley tibmild take a hunch, get into the beet growing habit and in a very short time the sugar beet crop of the valley would be all and more than a factory the sew of the plant in Billings could handle 'nos would mean a factory in Hai land values of $800 per acre throughout the valley. The management , oi the Billings factory will contract to take your beets for 1906 at $5 per ton. Kifers Furniture. On December let Mr. J. H. Kifer bought the interest of his former part- ner in the business of the Hardin Fur- niture company and is now mole pro- prietor. The name of the concern has been changed •from the Hardin Furni- ture company to just plain \Kifers Furniture.\ Mr. Kifer will carry complete line of furnitute, carpets, rugs; linoleum, etc., and now has on hand as good a stock to select from as can be found in any town in Montana outside of the largest cities. In ad- dition, Mr. Kifer . is buying in carload lots and is enabled to make prices that can not be duplicated by buying else- where. Land Business Held Up. The Billings Gazate of Tuesday says: A visit to the land office yerterday elicited the information that without a receiver and a register to act jointly on filings, proofs, etc., nothing can be done, but to file them in official order and to wait until the appointments are made, until they can be acted upon. Notices of publication may be issued and contest cases set, but without a receiver and a register, no matter which requires a joint action can be disposed of. R. P. Jackson, who has been ap- pointed temporary register is power- less to act alone in these matters which the law says shall be passed on by both the receiver and register. About the Postoffice. Mr. Editor:—If you will kindly allow me thg use of a small space in your paper I would like to correct it few mis- statements which are being made to the public regarding the postoffice. state- ments claimed to have been made by myself. As is generally known there is being circulated a petition by a Mrs. Reeder for the purpose of installing her as post- mistress at Hardin, and in order to se- cure signers to her petition is causing the statement to bee-sande thar was going to resign us postmaster, and other like statements, to which:thefehrnot a shadow -of truth. Now I have this further to Fay: If the people and patrons of this office feel that I am not serving them as well as I should, and have not been faithful in the discharge of my duty to them as a postmaster, considering the difficulties and disadvantages always present in establishing a new office in a new town and a new country, then I say let ne go to work and select a person to take my place' who has been with us more than a period of a few months. We have plenty of good timber, worthy and com- petent. We do not know this woman who aspires to represent us as post- mistress. She is a stranger among us and before committing ourselves would it not be Wise to investigate and find out who this Mrs. Reeder is and from what part she came? Yours very truly. EDWIN C. SPENCER, P. i. P. 8.—I have asked the Department to send the proper authorities to ex- amine and report on the condition an0 management of the post office. E. C. , h. Sugar and Tobacco Interests Win. Free trade with the Philippines will not continue as in the past if the de- cision.reached at a recent meeting of repablitsm members of the ways and means committee, at whicb President- elect Taft was a conspicuous figure. meets with the approval of congress. While Mr. Taft favors free trade with the insular possessions without any restrictions, it is said that in order that there shall be no discussions, he has agreed that the amount . of sugar and tobacco which have been allowed free entry should be restricted. With this end in view it is under- stood that the sugar interests have agreed to a compromise by- which :300 tons of sugar will be admitted from the Philippines annually free of duty atid all sugar over that amount will pay the present rate of duty, which isi 25 per cent less than the duty imposed by the Dingley tariff on sugar from other countries. What amount will be fixed an a max- I imum limit for the free entry of to- bacco has not yet been determined. Demands are understood to be thor- oughly in accord on the question of free trade with the Philippines. • It is probable that a number of sugar and tobacco manufacturers and growers will be subpoenaed by the committee in order to obtain further information on the question. .44 , :4444.44.4444 YOUR DOLLAR will come back to you if you spend it at home.

As there is practically no opposition to the measure, a favor- able report and its passage by the house is confidently expected. Receipt For \Alfalfa Tea.\ Dr. W. X. Sudduth, who will go into the hog business on the strength of vast profits to be derived from the feeding of \alfalfa tea,\ says that the alfalfa stock contains more protein than bran, for which the farmer pays $20 per ton. His method will Kaye all the valuable feed that has hetetofore been wasted by alfalfa, raisers. \Alfalfa tea,'' aeocird- ing to the diktor, is made as follows: The alfalfa meock is to be placed in large vats and is to be steeped by means of heated coils until the entire masa is a mushy gruel and which will be added to a email amount of grain and sugar beet slop and carried around the ranch in tanks and drawn off to feed the hogs.
