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.

In the immediate vicinity of Hardin are 05,000 acres already under irrt- gation. some of which' can be bought at a'reasonable price. Unirrigated land. can be obtained for settlement under the homestead laws which is fully equal to the best in the Broadview country or the far \famed Gallatin 'valley, where so-called dry farming has . been such a pronounc ed success. Last year, on land that had . just been broken, 25 brothels of wheat to the acre were raised close to Hardin, easily showing ite.possibilities when all the conditions necessary to this method are observed. Abolit 10.000 acres of irrigated land TIS, land is of --time best in the valley; .01d the cheap rate at which it can be secured makes it especially desirable to the man of limited means. Further information can be obtained of the In- dian agent at Crow Agency. Montana., From time to time land belonging to Indians who have died is put on the A E CALAHAN market and sold to the highest bidder.

The next sale of these lands will take place during the month of May. 4 --- Can Homesteads Still Be Secured? At present thousands of acres of un- irrigated land are open to settlement under the homestead laws, and in, the near future the balance of the Crow Indian reservation will be thrown open to settlement. An irrigation canal has already been surveyed by the U. S. Reclamation Department for the irriga- tion of that land, 'which will aggre- gate 230,000 acres. Why Should the ilomeseeker Settle Near Hardin? 1. Because the west is the most en- terprising and progressive part of America, the people represent the pick H ours: all states and countries, and the man who comes with a determination to stick and work will prosper and get rich. 2. Because Montana is the best state in the west. The rediscovery of the art of irrigation has turned its Valleys into veritable gardens of Eden for pro- ductiveness, and the introduction of stint i tic methods for the conservation a.:sans , has made its plains un- •i• the raising' of grains. 3. ,tise the country around Har- di beat in Montana and a man in any method of farming 4. Because he can buy irrigated land cheaply and thus be independent of weather conditions, as he practically controls his waterfall. 5. Because he can rent irrigated In land at from one to two dollars per acre. 6. Because he will always have plenty of free range for his stock, 3 Because he can homestead land suitable f.a 8.

For this reason, alt bough the distance is fully 400 miles, I tclieve this route will be the one constructed. The coast extension will be completed in about three months and you can then look for things to be doing, for just as soon as the main trunk line is in shape for traffic the work of building branch lines and feeders will begin.\ short order, allowing stock to graze off the naturally cured but uncut hay, materially reducing the cost of winter- ing. The length of the growing season is such that even the more delicatAplants, such as watermelons, cucumbers matoes, etc., are grown in abundance,' as there is no danger of late and early frosts. What Crops Can Be Raised? Whatever crops have been raised in other sections of Mentana can be suc- cessfully cultivated in the Big Horn valley. The average yield of wheat in Yellowstone county is 30 bushels to the acre, and of . oats 65 bushels, while a yield of wheat of from 40 to 00 bushels to the acre and of oats 75 to t00, is not uncommen in this section. Yellowstone county has long enjoyed an enviable reputation for its crops of alfalfa, which will average from 7 to 8 tons to the acre, and is much in demand for the fattening of sheep and cattle, thousands of these being brought into the county every year for that purpose. On the unirriga.ted land there is no reason why the crop re( , nk of Gallatin valley should not ix' '1,i lied or even exceeded, and the pre-, . 1 , '. ,, t several old Gallatin valley farni, , r.., p i I His com- munity is a strong ind esti i; al if its prob- ability.

At a meeting of the house committee on affairs ,of cities and counties, Tiles - y, the bill providing for the formation of the new county of Mus.selshell was considered and an adverse report decid- ed upon. This practically kills the bill and Roundup will be compelled to wait -at least another two years for county -seat honors. Extend Limit to Fifty Miles. Register C. L.
