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.

After steaming in review by the presi- dent, 'Wheeie eagle -crested 'nag - of blue was at the main mast et the Cruiser Yacht Mayflower, the sixteen white battleshspe finally cast anchor in the same fair waters of Hampten Roads. whence they started fourteen months ago on the notable journey of 4-5,000 miles. . . The joy of homecoming was written upon the face of 'every bluejacket and every officer on board the sixteen ships. The long cruise, the visits to many of. the most famous ports of the wald, the homage that has been paid to the fleet by every nation favortel . on the calling list, have been sources of intense inter- est to every one aboard the famous ves- sels, but unquestionably there was no scene in all the world to compare in beauty with the familar landmarks . \ 1 \\•C* picked up by the battleship fleet as it I steamed, a triumphant, self-reliant and efficient force, through the 'Virginia capes and entered the peaceful waters of Chesapeake bay and Hampton Roads. Tao American navy has set a new cruising standard .for the other navies of the world to strive for. . As the Connectient led the beautiful column of bat i tleships, ready for any emergency and bidding defiance to the storms or the tortuous chanuels of the strange waters of , the hemispheres out of the Hampton Roads fourteen months ago and, as she piloted the fleet through all the seas and into all the ports of the bug cruise, the flagship Connecticut steamed again Monday at the head of the returning squadrons. In the wake of the white ships of the home -coining fleet, followed a welcoming host in gray—four battleships and five power- ful cruisers, being the eecorting column, sent a thousand Miles out to sea to con- vey a preliminary word of welcome to the ships. , President Roosedelt welcomed officers and bluejaeliets aa follows: the , \Admiral Sperry, officers and mea of the battleship fleet; More than a year has passed since you steamed out of this harbor and over the world's rim, and this morning the hearts of all who saw you thrilled with pride as the hulls of the mighty warships lifted above the horizon. You have been in the nor-. themand southern hemispheres; four times you have crossed the line; you' have steatreld through all . the great oceans: you have touched the coast of every continent. Ever your general course has been westward; and now you come back, to the port from which you set sail. This ie the first battle- ship fleet that evet circumnavigated the globe. Those who perform the feat again can but follow in your footsteps. \The little torpedo flotilla went with you around South America, through the Straits of Magellan, to Our own Pacific coast. The armored cruiser squadron met you and left you again, when you were half -way around the world. You have falsified every prediction of the prophets of failure. In all your long ciliate not an accident worthy of men- tion has happened to a single battle- \ ship nor to a cruiser- nor to a torpedo boat. You left this coast in a high state of battle efficiency and you return with your efficiency increased, better prepared than when you leg not only in personal but even in medial. Dnr- ing your world cruise you have taken your regular gunnery practice and skill- ed' though you wete before with the guns, you have grown more skillful , still and through practice you have im- proved in battle tactics, though there is more room for improvement than in your gunnery. • Incidentally, I suppose, I hardly need say that one measure of your fitness most be yonr clear etecog- nition of the need always ateadily to strive IA) render eaeurselvee more lit; if 1 you ever grow to. think you are tit enough, you can make up your minds SQUADRON RETURNS that from that moment you will begin to go backward. \As a war machine, the fl;!; t ,reines back in better shape than it e addition e you, the officers gnu of this formidable . fighting force, it: ' , It shown yourselves the best of of all a - American Battleships Make sible ambassadors and heralds of pee Complete Girdle of World Wherever you have landed you 11;: ARE IN GOOD TRIM borne yourselves so as to make re-, home proud of being your count' -1, , e You have shown that the beet i re el fighting men of the aeii, knows how to appear to the utmost possible advent- . age when his business is to behave him- self on shore and to make a good mum - Thousands of Americans Welcome preasion in a foreign land.

The Ma!' Land Sale. On the 15th day of May. according to the legel advertisement of the same, something over 160 tracts of inherited, Indian lands on the Crow reservatAon will be meld to the highest bidders. Or- dinarily a land sale of such 'magnitude would be the talk of the entire , country lying to the west of the Mississippi river. But in these sales of inherited Indian lands, of which there are better, lattle publicity is given. An ,,.1 vertieement is- published .giving lie time and place of said sale, the heed sub -division of the tracts Offered. the terms of sale. This adve re rt runs for a period of 90 days in .; -ws- paper published in Billings, with rely inure than a local circulation. (it the merest chance can a horueeeer.;-r learn of such sales.

Publicity, in connection with these sales, would bring twenty bidders where under the present system only one appears. The Indian would sell at advanced prices and the land would fall into the hands eif actual farmers er!rl 1. , , 11,;---,, , -10•rs instead of speculators. I II; e; ir, .0'11 ea charge of the sales no doubt follow the law and rulings of the r ellen Department to the letter—but - law and the procedure need revision, !, ,!tily in the matter of publicity but '.•rms of sale as well. The land sue , , n. partial payments, the balance in one, two and three years, with a reasonable interest, would net the In - dams a handsome profit over the actual cash basis. This 'would also help the homeseeker and actual farmer and be the means of preventing 90 per cent of the land falling into the hands of specu- lators and the large stock interests. But, regardless of these drawbacks and disadvantages, the coming sale promises to be the best of its kind in the list of Crow land sales. A large majority of the lands offered for sale are already under irrigation 'and only await the coming of the white man to commence producing large and profit- able crops. Other tracts are peculiarly adapted to grazing and dry farming, while the lands as a whole are the choice pieces I f the entirs Crow reser- vation, being among the first selections made by the older Indians who have now passed to the happy hunting grounds. The selections were made when the whole reservation was at f hand to choose from, hence they should be and are the beet. Indications are that the bidding will be lively and that following the sale the Big Horn valley will have many new settlers.• Church and Sabbath SchooL Hardin 10 a. m., Faster 2p. m. Sermon by Rev.

BIG CROWD PRESENT Prof. Cooley, Hon. I. D. O'Donner and James Scilly Instruct Farmers On Dry Farming, Irrigation and Crops. eieturtlay's farmers' institute drew , loie crowd to Hardin from all over tie Big Horn - valley, indicating that the settlers are preparing to 'farm exten- sively along the different lines as will be followed by each individual. Some came seeking information concerning irrigation, some on dry farming, dairy ing, crop rotation, etc. The varioue speakers covered almost every question. Prof. Cooley, superintendent of farm- ers' institutes at Beatman, addressed the meeting tin dry farming and dairy- ing and general farm topics. From his conct asions and comparisons wit): known successful dry farm sectiore. eoupled with the success already at tamed in this locality, it was shown beyond question -that by \ following the dry farm methods strictly the high bench lends along the Big Horn river will produce crops equal to these raised in any part of Montana. Hon. L D. O'Donnell, of Billinge, one of the practical faleners and agricul- turalists of the Yellowstone valley, spoke generally on farm topics and 'especially of the value of alfalfa. His advice was forevery farmer to sow at least a small acreage of alfalfa this spring, pointing out where it would be ,, f greater value to them and to the land than any other crop that could be raised. With Mr. O'Donnell alfalfa is the king of all crops, anti with his mom , Oen twentyefive years of experience ir raising and handling it he is pretty we,. qualified to judge. Mr. Scilly, agriculturalist for tilt Billings Sugar company, talked prie . cipally on the sugar beet, its cultivie tier , and value as a farm crop. He at , esed every farmer to raise a few be- even though they were not -ship- to a sugar factory. The sugar btr; . he pointed out, was as profitable crop to be raised for feed on the farm. Generally speaking, land should be cultivated from two to four years 1e - 11B raising can be engaged in with the greatest success. The soil niust be mellow and well worked and afea preparatory crop he said nothing could be better than alfalfa Au afternoon and evening meeting was helk presided over by V. B. Mc- Comb. Few topics missed some dis cussion and the prvailiimg opinion that considerable good will undoubted1:, result from the meetings. ,••• School Bonds Carry. .
