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.

GET MY PRICES Before Building H Dry Farming In Montana. The fallacy of the impression that irrigation is essential to grain raising in Montana is made apparent by the examination of the -crop yield a as re- ported from the Gallatin valley and other dry farming sections of Montana. The Gallatin Valley Commercial Club has issued a bulletin showing the re- sults from dry fanning in that section, from which it is ascertained that the t?tal anot of land farmed without irri- gation in that country is about 300,000 acres. A crop failure on the unirri- gated land is unknown, while the same can not be said of the irrigated lands, of which Gallatin county chums the largest body in the world. The average wheat yield in the United States is about 18 bushels per acre, while the arrage for the famous Red River valley for the last period of years is between 13 and 14 bushels per acre. On the dry farm lands in Gal- latin county the average yield is given at 48 bushels,' or about 30 bushels per acre more than / the average for the United States. The bulletin gives the names of many farmers in GallatM county and the number of acres and total crop yieLl of each. It shows yields of from 23 to 59 bushels of win- ter wheat per acre, while oats and bar- ley did proportionately well. The Tribune refers to what is being done in Gallatin county for the reason that many former residents of that place are now located in the vicinity of Hardin engaged in dry farming. Dry farm values in Gallatin county range from $40 per acre up. while, according to those who have settled here, former residents of that place, equally as good if not better land can be secured here under, the homestead laws of the United States. It is not the intention of this paper, or the former Gallatin- ites now living here to detract from that famous dry farm Section. The thought and intention is to impress upon those seeking homes the fact . that in this new and undeveloped country there are opportunities equal to those offered the eorly settlers of Gallatin county. Here the person with smell means can secure a foothold and lay the foundation for future prosperity and ease, while in the older and devel- oped regions only men of wealth can be . the owners of productive and never failing farm lands. What the farmers in the Gallatin valley are doing today, the farmers of the Big Horn valley will duplicate tomorrow. County Assessors Meet. The county assessors of the various counties of the state met at Helena last week Friday. A. P. Smith, of Yellow- stone county, was elected president of. the Montana Assessors' association and it wai decided to hold the 1910 meeting in Billings. Rates of assessment for this year were adopted, which will be as follodes: Stallions, jacks, mules and saddle horses, discretionary. Graded horses not less than $50.

The present tenni nals of the Burlington. at Billings are of ao ancient design and no improve- ments have been made for several years, in ant.cipetion of the removal to better quarters. The new changes will make an extra long division, from Sheridan to Laurel, but it is proposed to cut in two for slow and way freight. The sub -terminal between Sheridan and Laurel will possibly be at Crow Agen- cy or Hardin.—Sheridan Enterprire. Church and Sabbath School. Hardin 10 a. in. Foster 2p. Sermon by Rey. H. G. Gibson.

The various boards of county com- missioners of the state met in Helena last week and organized into - a state board of county commissioners. G. R. Brown, of ,Butte, was chosen chairman; J. J. Hindson. of Helena, first vice- president and G. F. Burls, of Hardin, seconil vice-president. When the meet- ing adjourned it had been decided to meet next year in Billings. County Commissioners Newman and Cramer came down from Billings Tues- day night and in company With Com- missioner Burla have been inspecting roads and bridges and lo Acing after other county matters in this vicinity. Residents of the Big Horn valley have every reason to feel grateful to thew gentlemen for the interest they have shown in assisting the development of this country in providing roads, suit- able bridges and other public improve- ments necessary for the conVenience of settlers. From them the Tribune learns that a .:- ; .t with the commit - sioners of If. county has been arranged t, -: place in Hardin about the first of 11 ,n 1 at which time the question of building a joint county bridge lier088 the BR It'crna ct, place will be consider'-c I tW f.n ‘I ed ab- sence of one tI I- , , i,, ,n e ea of Rosebud made it iii44...sittry to postpoi the meeting until the time stated, other wise it would have occured this week. Major Reynolds. Indian agent, will also take an active interest in the meet- ing as the representative of the Indians and the government.

Senator Donlan's bill introduced in the senate for a primary election in the choice of United States senators is re- i 0 ceiving , considerable attention at th, • hands of the state press. Everything indicates that a large majority of the republican newspapers of the state • and all the democratic „papers, are violently opposed to the Donlan pri- mary plan. The following from the Forsyth Times is about the way the entire independent press of the state looks at it: ilk • I Solicited • i is 01 111R(WS, MON I ANA Capital, - - - - $25,000.00 A Genern1Banking Business Transacted Accounts DIRECTORS J.

As a student ef The Donlan subterfuge says, ' - The un- fairness of such a proposition is clearly apparent to every man Who believes t hat a primary election for senator could be only to determine the choice of the people for such office, and not the choice of the men chosen to the legislature. If section eigit is made a part of the bill then a candidate, for senator could carry Silver BOW, Deer Lodge, Lewis and Clark, Mis- soula, Cascade, cilallatin, Yellowstone and Park by a tota majority of 20,000. and his opponent, who carried the re- mainder of small counties, by a major- ity of one, would, under the present be entitled to election , by the legislature. If such a rale Is to apply to the election of a senator, why- ni it make it apply to governor, congress- man and all state officers? Under the present law it takes a plurality of all votes cast in the state to elect' a state officer, and a plurality of all votes diet in a countY name a county officer. Why not make it apply to United States senator? Why should there be any distinction for that particular office? It is a well established rule that 'the majority shall rule,' but this paper fails to see where a major- ity would stand any show Wider the proposed bill. If we are to have a primary law at all, Iet 9 ,ns„im,ve one that gives the majority the right to decide a contest.\ Not only is the bill designed to sub- vert the public will, but it is an open Invitation to corrupt candidates for United - States senator to throw their slush funds and organize their corrupt machines in the thinly' populated counties, with the knowledge that a small county like Rosebud would be more easily carried in such a campaign than a large one like Silver Bow, and would count as much in the \request\ made N to a legislative party caucus. If 41A1 high gods on Mount Olympus know anything at all, they know that eastern \ •,•iina has had all the experience ot o kind at the hands of senatorial li• .idlers it desires. The \request\ feature of the bill is laughable. When did a member of the legislature become so exalted a creature that he is greater than the people who made him—the people whom he is supposed to represent, not own? Instead of the people being obliged to crawl on their lutees to their servant, to ask him what they should have, he should be commanded to deal justly with the people --and bound by oath to do so. # : , E.
