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.

POLSON, LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, him: NUMBER 20 Plans Under Way to Buy 75,000 Cherry Trees for Growers Progress is being made with plans. which if carried to completion, would rehabilitate all orchardists on the east shore whb lost their trees last fall when an early frost visited this section. Senator Murray has interested him- self in the proposition and recent word sent to Ronald Rowan is to the effect that the proper Washington Bureau had been approached and that an investiga- tor would be here in the near future to make a thorough survey of the sit- uation.

Senator Murray has stated that every- thing possible was being done to get favorible governmental action. The Poison Chamber of Commerce is co- operating and will furnish a man to assist the government in getting the necessary pictures, and other data. A number of growers have reported that the situation with them is rather serious as they have invested their en- tire capital in land and trees and herd just gotten their orchards on a paying basis when the disaster of last fall struck them. The land, in a great many cases, is not suitable for anything but fruit and if a plan eannot be Worked out to rehabiliate those without funds to buy new trees the problem would be- come more acute.

In fact the local! concern was tied for first honors and' a coin was flipped to determine thel final result. Mr. Marsh feels !either; proud of the showing because none of • the contestants know anything about it. The state dairy commission gets the, butter from some store where it is on sale. without the knowledge of the creamery that makes it so the contest- ants do not know out of which churn- , ing the sample will be taken. This: ribbon was awarded for the first six' months of 1936.

Switch Thrown for New Pumping Plant Last Monday, engineers of the Flat- head Irrigation project threw the switch of the new Crow Creek pumping plant, sending for the first time the waters of Spring and Crow Creeks over the hill and into the Ninepipe reservoir. According to information supplied by D. A. Dellwo, secretary of the Flathead Irrigation district, the new plant, lo- cated two and one-half miles north of the Ningpiw camp, was installed for the purpose of saving water which has pre- viously been wasted through Crow res- ervoir, farther down the same creek. This reservoir stores the drainage of about sixty-five thousand acres, and supplies irrigation for Moiese Valley. During the years since the construction of the reservoir the waters Slowing into it have exceeded the requiremnts of the land below it by about liftteen thous- and feet per year. The new pumping plant just installed, will divert approx- imately that amount if operated during the entire entire year. A unique advantage of the pumping site, which will materially affect the operation of the plant, is that the fact that the waters to be pumped arise from a large spring a few miles up stream. The springs which emerge just above Ronan and which make up almost the entire flow of Spring Creek. will supply this pump to nearly its full capacity. The water is sufficiently warm that the creek seldom freezes over, consequently the plant will be capable of operation during most of the year. Mr. Dwello says - The starting of this plant at the present time is of consid- erable value to the farmers this sea- son. During the next month it will de-, liver about fifteen hundred acre-feet of water and considering that the stor- age on the project is about exhausted that amount of water will probably be worth the cost of the plant.\ Miss Annice English, asistant post- mistress at Anaconda, is spending a few days here visiting Mrs. Bertha Heck- man. Lake County Court Damage From Three Fires is but Slight Poison was visited by two of what might have been very disasterous fires last week end. Late last Saturday afternoon an ex- plosion in the drying tumbler at the Poison Steam laundry caused a small blaze. Other than destroying the gar- ments in the machine at the time and damaging the machine which was only recently installed, there was yery little other damage done. All of the loss was covered by insurance. The owner. Mr. McConnell, stated that the explosion was caused by the elect - trice' static and if it had been equip- ped with an automatic steam valve which allowed the steam to escape and extinguish the fire the entire plant would probably have been badly damag- ed. Maude Castle who works in the dry cleaning department was standing just behind the machine at the time of the explosion and suffered from burns on her face and arms. Despite the excitement and incon- venience the washing machines were not turned off and the laundry was again operating in less than one-half hour after the explosion. Sunday evening the fire department was called out to extinguish a blaze between the walls of the Bon Ton and the Davis Meat Market. The blaze was quickly extinguished with very little damage. At first it was thought that some- one had tossed a lighted cigarette in between the buildings but it Was later decided that the fire was caused from spontaneous combustion of some ma- terials which had been left there by carpenters. --- Last Thursday afternoon a gruss fire Deaths R M. as W.
