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.

FROST and Daughter, Breeder of Pure Bred Jer- seys,\ this was the legend that greeted visitors to the dairy barn at the recent Montana State Fair. It has been known for some time that boys and girls club work greatly stimulated the father and son part- nership movement but this is the first instance on record in Montana where club work brought about a partnership between father and daughter. Just three years ago, Fern Frost of Hamilton, bought her first calf and joined a calf club. To- day, at 16, she and her father are conducting a pure bred Jersey farm, and the business is thriving. This was but one of the very many Important club features of the 1924 Montana State Fair. Herbert Zwis- ler, of Park City, who, two weeks be- fore, had been adjudged the cham- pion club member of Montana and was awarded a free trip to the Inter- state Fair at Sioux City, Iowa. start- led the entire corn world of the Treasure State by winning the grand sweepstakes in corn for Montana. This 17 year old club boy, who joined a club and started growing corn in Stillwater county three years ago, this year, led the entire field of corn growers, old and young, and took home one of the most coveted prizes the State Fair has to offer. In all there were 394 club exhib- itors at the 924 State Fair and this represtened approximately 1,500 se- parate exhibits, both of which fi- gures establish new records for Mon- tana. There were also 10 different club demonstration teams present, each team the state champion in its particular line of work. In addi- tion there were five livestock judg- ing teams and 24 individual club A MAN OF INTEGRITY A physician who reaches out to benefit humanity leaves a record be- hind him that is worth while. Such a man was Dr. R. V. Pierce, founder of the Invalids Hotel in Buffalo, N. Y. Ile was an eminent physidian, a lead- ing and honored citizen, known for his honesty and executive ability. His study along medical lines, and his knowledge of the remedial qualities of herbs and plants led to the discovery of his wonderful herbal remedy, Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription, the woman's tonic which has had the greatest number of supporters for the past fifty years. It is just the herbal tonic required if a woman is borne down by pain and sufferings at regular or irregular intervals, by nervousness or dizzy spells, headache or backache. Favorite prescription can now be had In tablet form as well as liquid at most drug stores. Send 10c for trial sample to Dr. Pierce's Invalids Irotel\in Buffalo, N. Y.

These two girls represent- ed the Busy Bee club of Danvers, Fergus county, the club which last year produced the state champion club girl. Margaret Bennett. Clothing work brought out the greatest number of exhibits of any of the club divisions, and so strong and varied was the competition that very few winners placed in more than one class. Louise Maynard, of Jef- fers, won first in the class for mak- ing the most appropriate club girl costume, probably the most difficult class in the clothing exhibit. Bertha Stewart, of Helena, won second in this. Eileen Long, of Hardin, and Ath/een Cowan, of Molt, were among the leaders in clothing club work.

This may be through the lay - leg aside of a certain sum of money • and investing it, (and usually such an investment is carried with an in- surance company, providing it is fire or life insurance one desires), and thus there is afforded a measure of safety against possible loss. Insurance in any industry is a safeguard that should be provided for by the beads of such industries. Rarely, however, does the range - cattle owner provide insurance against loss until after some losses have actually occurred. Generally, this policy is wrong, for, in most in- stances, adequate insurance applied through the protection of range cat- tle against the diseases known to be peculiar to the locality in which the animals range, will afford a greater safe T h gua e o c rd s . t of such insurance is al- most inconsiderate as compared with the losses it may prevent. The loss of one or two animals will usually ever any charge connected with such insurance. It is therefore, a wiser and much better plan to pro- vide this insurance in the form of Immunity from, or protection against such diseases as blackleg when cat- tle are run on the range in a black- leg district. Blackleg Aggressin has been so perfected as to provide life immun- ity in a single dose. The cost is nom- inal, and the insurance fee complete- ly overcomes anxiety from this source. The T blackleg germ is very insid- ious and remains in the soil of an infected locality for many years. Ex- actly how long is unknown. So im- portant has this phase become that districts are known as \Blackleg Dis- tricts\ wherein cattle must be pro- tected against blackleg each year if there is to be the ordinary anticipa- tion that they will arrive at a mar- ketable age. • The egact age when the infection will gain access to the system and cause death is not konwn and may vary considerably. Usually the in- ftetion -is transinitted through some abrasion of the skin, most commonly around the feet and extending up the limbs causing a very large swell- ing on that particular quarter. This swelling has the characteristic of containing gas beneath its surface. and crackles upon moving the hand over it. Death invariably results, for the only treatment possible would be very large amounts of serum and it is unlikely that an affected animal could be discovered early enough to permit an application of adequate therapeutic measures. Usually thirty- six hours elapse from the time of in- fection until death ensues. . It is reasonable, then, to conclude that the best method is to insure your animals aginst loss by the use of Blackleg Aggressin. 0 Weekly Market Letter By WEILLER & WEILLER CO., South St. Paul, Minn. Wednesday, October 1. 1924. i NDIFFERENCE on the part of all inter- ests characterized the cattle trade the first two days of this week, the market was the sfowest and worst of the seaman and while only called a quarter off the slow action made it seem much more. We would cell the trade full 50e lower than last Monday. Chicago reports a better trade but they are still put of line with our market, we know of actual sales made on cattle that we showed here that did not bring as much as we were offered. We do not konw just what effect the hoof and mouth disease in Texas is going to have am our trade, but we believe that it will bring many more buyers here from the corn belt who want good healthy and good do- ing cattle. Our Monday's run was mostly westerns, the quality of the run being very good hut only odd bead being good enough for $7.00 or better with the big bulk of the butcher steers going from $6.00 to $6.75 and the in-between kinds down to $5.50 with the common ones down to $4.75. Fe males were the worst hurt, with the bulk of the good heifers going around $5.50 and the bulk of the cows from $3.75 to $4.50. There has been very little action in the stocker and feeder division, only the choice ones meeting a ready toile, and the in-be- tween kinds going very slow. HOGS—The hog trade has been advanc- ing steadily during the last few days, and the top today looks like $10.35 to outsiders for select bogs, with ROWS $9.25 to $9.35. and pigs $8.50 to $8.65, with packers pay- ing up to $9.25 for a few choice butcher Pigs. SHEEP AND LAMBS—We are haring a real active sheep market. Our receipts are light for this time of the year, and i , rces are holding up exceptionally well.

WASHINGTON 'Wheat Crop to Reach Billion Dollars, States Managing Director of Finance Corporatio The wheat crop this yeir will return one billion dollars in cash at country points, Managing nix -- rector Meyer of the War Finance corporation stated recently In a report from his office an Washing- ton, D. C. This statement was on the basis of an investigation in the wheat -produc- ing areas. In the statement, Mr. Meyer deolared also that railroad transportation was handling the crop in a manner \almost without precedent.\ \In view of the unusually rapid flow of wheat to market,\ the re- port said, \I have had an informal Investigation made in the west of the adequacy of the machinery for handling the marketing of the crop. am glad to be able to say that the reports are most optimistic, and that in fact, the railroad transportation seems to be adequate for the task and practically no substantial car shortages are reported.\ Fairview Cheese Factory Opens. Richland county's cheese factory, located at Fairview at the lower end of the Lower Yellowstone valley, is now in full operation. Four cheeses weighing 94 pounds were the product of the first day. As soon as a sup; ply has been accumulated and aged it will be placed on the local county market, We would note chotee western killing lambs op to $13.00 per cwt., and choice western feeding lambs up to $12.25. Pros- pects are that there will be quite a run here this coming week, and. Judging from the demand for both feeding lambs and breeding ewes it looks as if we will have a real toppy market. We have handled shipments of cattle (luring the past few days for the following Montana shippers: Thomas Johnson, Malta; R. R. Black, Vendetta; A. G. Craig, Van- dalic Frank Jones, Vendetta; H.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF CO-OPERATIVE PLANS TO SOLVE OUR MARKETING T HD future of marketing agri- cultural products lies in the larger development of co-opera- tive programs with the principle pur- pose of elimiating waste, Herbert Hoover, secretary of commerce, de- clared in an address at Milwaukee recently before the American Dairy federStion banquet which was held in connection with the national dairy show. The secretary proposed a plan for the creation of a federal marketing board to aid farm producers in such waste elimination. This board, if created, he said, should be composed of several cabinet members, a ma- jority membership from among co- operatives and a minority from the ranks of terminal associations to be organized under the plan. It would have power, he added, to establish standards in co-operation with pro- ducers and the department of agri- culture and bring about co-opera- tion with the department in amplify- ing inspection and certification to the end that interstate goods could be shipped on standards certified to by federal authority. It would give information that would lessen chaos In shipments, he said. \Present marketing of farm' pro- ducts is wasteful,\ Secretary Hoov- er said, \The whole problem of im- proved marketing is the elimiation of waste. \The time has come when we must take strong and definite steps in the future development of co-operative marketing. The agricultural co-op- erative, when rightly adapted to its work, can obtain certain advantages in distribution.\ The secretary sounded a warning, however, against assuming that co- operation is a complete solution to the problem of marketing all agri- cultural products. He also advised against a program based on Europ- ean systems.
