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.

NUMBER 40 Eighty Men Being Employed; Ninepipe & Pablo Reservoirs Work of establishing bird refuges at the Ninepipe and Pablo reservoirs has recently been started by the Bicioeical survey department. The new projects are furnishing employment for 80 men working in two shifts. The men are tak- en from the certified WPA rolls. A general program of development is planned. Eleven miles of fence will be built at the Ninepipe reservoir and nine miles at the Pablo reservoir. Parking areas for fishermen will also be built at Ninepipe, and it is tentatively plan- ned to include the construction of out- of-doors shelters, fire places and the planting of trees in the program. The work is being carried on under the direction of George L. Girard, who Is with the division of migratory water- fowl. Mr. Girard states that this work will in no way interfere wth the ir- rigation and that the department is working in the valley in cooperation with farmers, ranchers and other resi- dents, which is shown through their employment of these men which might otherwise be left to the support of the taxpayers.

Sockeye Age Can Be Told by \Ear Rings /9 An interesting bit of information in regard to sockeye salmon not commonly known, accordig to Graham Cabwell. who has charge of the Station Creek hatchery, is the fact that the age of a salmon can be determined much the same as that of a tree. Mr. Cabwell who recently attended a special course of instruction at the state college at Bozeman. took 40 sal- mon from Flathead lake there for ex- perimentation and it was found that the age of the fish could be determined by a small bone on the inside of the head near the ear, which has rings around it, each ring representing a year. Most of the fish used for experimenting were found to be from three to live years old. The Flathead lake fish were found to be entirely free of disease their only fault being that some were bruised. More than a million and quarter eggs were taken during this year's run. They will be hatched at the hatchery and during April and May will be planted in the lake. Mr. Cabwell says that he has never seen a partially grown salmon caught and that he believes the finger- lings make their way to deep water and remain there until they are mature and ready to return up -stream to spawn.

Banana Belt Comes In for Share Blizzard Following one of the warmest De- cembers on record, winter struck this vicinity with vengeance this week. The storm reached Poison late Monday af- ternoon bringing with it howling winds and swirling snow which for a time blocked many of the country roads and closed the west shore highway for sev- eral hours. The temperature dropped to 17 below Tuesday night and last night to 21 below according to the govern- ment record kept by J. H. Mine. The mercury had risen five degrees this fore- noon and government forecasts from other places hold promise of a break tomorrow for warmer. weather. Many motorists, unprepared for the icy blasts found their cars frozen Tues- day and yesterday morning and traffic is at a minithum. The blinding snow Monday night made driving dangerous, however only one accident was reported. 0. 3, Mueller, Missoula businessman, turned his car over on the Sunny Slope hill that even- ing due to poor visibility. The wind- shield wiper on his car was not working properly and while he was attempting to fix it he lost control of his car and it went off the grade turning completely over. The car was badly damaged but Mr. Mueller was not injured.

Lake County Court House Happenings Condemnation proceedings over a right of way, county commissioners vs. Mr. Johnson also stated that he noted a tendency among some businessmen to bid a reluctant farewell to 1936, fearing that 1937 would not be so good. He asked that those fears be discarded and that our new year be faced with con- fidence and courage and hoped all would enjoy as good business this year as last. \Ben' Johnson (Ronan): Closer co- operation among all commercial and chic bodies of Lake county would be a fine thing. New people are coming in, new problems confront the entire coun- ty. We're all interested in irrigation and more of it. The irrigation commission- ers meet Saturday, January 16th.

August and November were the busiest months. with eighteen licenses, each and March, the smallest with three licenses. Li- censes issued in 1935 totaled only 112 despite the June rush before the \gin - marriage\ law went into effect. Divorces filed during the past year numbered 53 in comparison to 32 the year before. Thus far no license ha.s yet been issued for the new year. The last li- cense of 1936 was secured last Wednes- day by Arnold Abraham Goerz of Fort Peck and Hazel Virginia Caldwell of New Deal.

STEAMBOAT SILVER SWAN IS FROZEN IN AT YELLOW BAY The steamboat, Silver Swan, built re- cently by Lee Holderman, is making its home at the present time in Yellow Bay. having been locked in by the ice. The boat left Poison several weeks ago to bring out a boom of logs and during the recent cold spell was frozen in then: before they could get the logs out. It may be some time before the boat will be able to return to Poison. As a result of an inspection made by Dr. Foot, of the State Board of Health, into the health conditions of the schools of Lake county, a warning has been issued at Chario that health conditions must be improved or the school closed. Due to the overcrowded condition the basement had been put into use for classrooms, which acocrding to Dr. Foot were very unsatisfactory as to air space and lighting. To correct this matter the school board has arranged to hold a part of the school in another building Other deficiencies were found in the schools at St. Ignatius and Ariee, but these will be remedied when their new school buildings are put into use.

(Continued On back Page) Growth of Poison Shown by Increased N.P., P.O. Receipts With the close of the old year and the beginning of the new, many places of business are making a check of their business of the past year and in the majority of cases are finding that 1936 receipts were much larger that those of the previous year. Probably one of the largest of these in Poison is the Northern Pacific depot where it was found that freight and passenger business brought in $69,000 more in 1936 than it had in 1935. The larger part of this was attributed to in- creased shipments of freight, a good sized portion of which was in car -load lots. The increase of business and growth of Poison during the past year is also shown in other places. The postoffice. the index of the town, showed a much larger increase of receipts and mail dur- ing December of the past year than pre- viously and while figures for the year's business have not yet been obtained they will probably show a substantial Increase over 1935 as Postmaster Geo. Farrell states that approximately 1,000 new patrons have been added the past year. Another place in which an increase is shown, possibly not one of the most pleasing but proportionally one of the largest is the city treasury where $316.50 in fines have been paid since July, in comparison to $15 for the latter half oi the fiscal year of 1935-36. THOSE REGISTERED FOR CCC MAY BE SENT IN MARCH Announcement was made yesterday from the office of Rudy Sheric.k, that those who registered at his office for enrollment in the CGC camps and did not get to go during the last call, may be able to do so in March when another call for men will be made.
