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 Chicago recently was held a public meeting to discuss tree planting and the preservation of the forests. In many states the people are awakening to a realization of the fact that moun- tain and valley are being denuded at an alarming rate. According to statistics based on annual consumption within a very few years the United States will be compelled to import all the lumber used, unless steps are taken to replace the forests now being slaughtered so recklesely, says an exchange. The annual timber cut in this coun- try measured either in board feet or dollars and cents, is astounding. The lumber industry is fourth - among the great industries et the United States, and in 1907 between forty and forty - live billion board feet of lumber was produced, valued at $675,000,000. Mor4 than four million cords of wood is used every year , in the manufacture of paper alone, and we have already reached the stage where we cannot supply the demand. Last year over one million cords were imported from Canada for this purpose. The railroads require an amount of timber equal to five billion board feet for ties every year, and still more lines are being cAmmtructed. The aggregate cut of lumber in the United States is increasing annually by about 7 per cent, and the great centers of the lumber industry are ue - -ir , e secure old H o nimals, as the well WI , I papf4es'are apt to loaf around the din Si6:1 4.1itions, while the old fellows, as as released, will make no delay in seeking their old haunts and com- panions \'l'he stun set aside for this work was $2.506, of which we have expended And to offset this depletion •t. $1 i iti, and the bounties on the dead magnificent natural resource lit ' '• '\ - eh - asses that have been counted would being done outside of the work considerably exceed this amount. forestry bureau of the interior ii,• 1 ,, I I ! \ 'We are all pleased with the experi- Li ment.

Many theatre parties are: being formed to visit Billings to see klaW & Erlanger's mammoth production of \Ben Hut,\ at the Babcock theatre in that city, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, February 25: 26 and 27, and at, the special matinee on Saturday, February 27. Those iatend- iog tit) 'witness this spectacle ?should make seat reservations as early as pos- sible in order to secure good locations, as the fact that \Ben Hut\ has never been presented in Billings warrants 'the prediction that its engagement at the Babcock Theatre will be prefaced . by a tremendous advance sale. \Ben Hnr,\ With its lustrous Star of Bethlehem, its camels, Arabian steeds. Oriental trappery and mimic splendor of the gorgeous East, is beyond doubt the inOst - elaborate' spectacle ever staged in the history of the world. Its series of seventeen scenes present to the eye a feast of multifarious beauty and variety all set to, a symphonic accom- paniment of graceful music. As 110VI arranged and staged by Messrs. Klaw & Erlanger, the public sees a great spectacle which appeals not merely on the strength of its dramatic value but as a colossal and picturesque pageant. • Where before there were fifty dancers in the revels, there will now be one hundred; and where before there were one hundred men and women in the throng that goes' forth to meet the Saviour, there will be two hundred. And in the chariot race, the scene which, coupled with the popu- larity of General Wallace's book, gave the Way its enormous vogue, eight horses, aided by the most intricate mechanisms, will produce the pro- digious illusion of the struggle for vic- tory in the arena of the Circus of Antioch.

The sale of seats for the engagement begins at the Babcock Theatrebux office on Monday, February 22, when tickets for any of the four performances will bem obtainable. Mail orders will be prompt- ly fed in accordance with date of re - t, when accompanied by remit- tance, after the opening of the seat sale. The scale of prices will range from 50, cents to $2.50, and all communications should be addressed to the Manarr of Babcock Theatre, Billings, Montana. j Exterminating Coyotes and Wolves. Dr. Knowles. state veterinarian, re- ports considerable sUCC4388 with his ex- periments in innoculating coyotes and wolves with the mange. He had some difficulty in securing a dog suffering from the most virulent type, but finally secured one through the assistance of the College of Veterinary of Kansas City. Six coyote and six wolf puppies were then secured and permitted to associate with the dog until each one had become thoroughly inoculated with the disease. They were then distributed through Rosebud, Teton and Chouteau counties. Seven inoculated coyotes and ten wolvia were also set loose in Lewis and Clark county. Of the results Dr. Knowles says: \The stockmen, being interested in the experiment, have been very observ- ant of the results and the reports that have come to us furnish absolute proof of the efficacy of the plan, From ver bal awl written reports it is within the limits to say that over 600 carcasses of or animals suffering in the last stages of the disease have been c,onnted. In a comparatively short tithe that the \medicine\ has been at work this re- sult is most satisfactory. \Another satisfactory feature of the experiment is the evidence of the spread of the disease, as affected animals have been olbeeived in Flathesd county, many miles from the nearest point in Teton county where inoculated animals had been released. This fact shows the disease is spreading and if the experi- ments we have made are supplemented Under the provisions of a bill intro- duced in both houses of the Montana legislature, providing for. the reappor- tionment of the state for legislative purposes, Yellowstone county will gain one member of the house. The coun- ,ties of Eastern Montana have increased rapidly in population the past few years and are entitled to better repre- sentation than they now have, made on the 1900 census. While the present bill is not to the satisfaction of the members from this part of the state it is stated that it will receive their sup port on the grounds that it will at least be an improvement over matters as they stand at pet:sent. • Another effort is being made to se- cure a mail route between Hardin and Foster. This line is certainly required to accommodate the residents of the valley north of Hardin and for the con- venience of the business men in Har- din. Three days is too long a time for mail to be on the road a distance of only 14 miles, and under the present service it requires that time for a let- ter mailed at Hardin to reach Foster. If the petition is not presented for your signature hunt it up and see that it appears thereon. • In answer to the petition sent in by residents of Hard in, Superintendent E. E. Young of the Sheridan Billings division, writes Agent Tupper that as \trains Nos. 41 and 42 are through trains it will not be possible to have them stop at Hardin under the present schedule.\ The only encouragement to be derived from the reply is the faint hope that under a : new schedule these flyers may be allowed a second or two for a stop at, the only really good town between Sheridan and Billings. S. K. Gibson, who *as in Hardin he.: fall from Oklahoma, is expected to ar- rive to remain permanently next week. He has rented the brick cottage recent. ly erected by A. Rousseau and will move into the same upon his arrival, being acoompanied by his family. Mr. Gibson will engage in busines in Har- din. and Retail Dealers in 1\113 P., it r.
