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.

Mbr it tbitab TOttrONICAL SoCiintro I gile MONTANA \ LEN A utter Poison—the Power City, the Commercial, Recreation and Scenic Center of the Garden of the Rockies! POISON, LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA, MAY 13, 1937 NUMBER 6. Sportsmen From all Sections Attend the Lake Co. Banquet Number two of the annual Lake county Sportsmen's banquet passed into history sometime between eleven o'clock Saturday night and seven o'clock Sun- day morning, when wild life enthudasts gathered here in Poison. Between 225 and 275 men (exact fig- ures are not available at this writing) were served at the city hall. A few scheduled speakers, including Gov. Ayers were unable to attend. Wal- ter Hanson of Wallace presided as toast- master. Speakers and a few of their remarks follows: , Thomas N. Marlowe, Missoula sports- man: Outdoor sports such as hunting and fishing gives us the cleanest, health- iest and most enjoyable sport in the world. Farmers are our best allies— they shelter and feed and furnish a home for our wild life. Keep the fish and game question divorced from the painful and sinister influence of poli- tics and march forward together. H. H. Ellsworth, N. P. freight and traffic manager had as his subject, \What do the railroads mean to the State of Montana?\ and answered the query in part as follows: Montana is 20th among the states in amount of railroad mileage, in the number of employees it stands 15th. In 1935 the state railroad payroll was al- most 15 million and has since increased 10 per cent. The total N. P. payroll in Montana In 1936 was $6,827,454. For 1935 Lake county received $48,- 803.97 in taxes, the total for the state being approximately four and one-half million. The same year the railroads spent nearly four million for materials or more than $10,000 per day. In closing Mr. Ellsworth quoted the following: \It does not take people long to forget favors; so they have for- gotten the days when the headlight of an engine was a star of hope. When it threw its first beam across the prairies the pioneer knew that he was no longer alone . . Let us think back to the days when we needed the railroads and the railroads creme. 11 we cannot be grateful, let us at s least be 1 airs Palrnese is a little thing, but an old friend would be glad to have it.\ The following is quoted from the talk of Ray Shannon, state treasurer: \The big game problem in Montana has reached an acute stage, unless united action is taken immediately. Deer and elk hunting, as a sport, will soon be lost. \The settlement of valley lands along our rivers and streams, the grazing of sheep and cattle on the lowlands with- in our forest area, not open for settle- ment, and the feeding off of our foot- hills and lower mountain sides, by for- eign sheep, allowed to hold a monoply on this range, has deprived our deer and elk of their natural winter ranges. The same condition prevails in the big game summer ranges, and deer and elk are forced to take what is left. \Our forests have been turned into a Coney Island, through the building of thousands of miles of canyon, sidehill and sky line drives. \Because the ranges have been sold lo foreign sheep outfits who hold prior right, the State Fish and Game Com- mission have been forced to conserve big game by establishing a buck law, and to protect what few bear are left.\ Two of the prominent guests who ap- peared on the program were Lloyd Hague. chairman of the state highway commission and James A. Weaver, state; game warden. Both gentlemen spoke; only briefly but to the point and were given a medial reception. Cleo. Girard, in charge of the biologic- al survey at Nine Pipe and Pablo res- ervoirs stated that it was his belief this ] territory was one of the very best for goose hunting and that it should be further built up. He explained about! the number of workers which were; employed and what the aims of the de- , partment were. Joe Hendricks. superintendent of the state game farm at Warm Springs an - SCOUTS ENTERTAIN MOTHERS AT MOTHER'S DAY PROGRAM Monday night at 7:30 the Boy Scouts of Troop No. 35 entertained their moth- ers at a special Mother's Day program. About 10 mothers were present. The program consisted of knot tying conteds for the mothers, game demon- strations, and each of the three patrols presented a stunt which furnished amusing entertainment. At the close of of the meeting the purpose of Scouting was briefly explained and also the ob- jectives of the troop. Before the closing ceremony each Scout presented a gift to his mother. A court of honor will be held during the week of May 17 to 22. The exact date to be announced later. Tommy Wil- son, Scribe of Troop No. 35. \Blowing In\ for \Cleanup\ The Courier received a card from Clarence Brown at Fort Peck. He states that he has noted there Is a cleanup movement here and expects to be over to clean up his lots. He says: \Will be blowing in last of week. That is \blow- in in\ if the wind is raging all the way like it is here. Wind and sand storms so that last night from the shafts we could not see across the river.\ Concrete Pouring Continues at Dam With 568 Employed The work of pouring concrete at the dam is continuing at top speed altho water is now pouring over both the upper and lower coffer dams. Contrary to rumors that several hundred men had been laid off, the company states that there are still 568 employees on the payroll, as of the 11th. Another whirley is being erected on the right bank and in a few days will start on that side, high up, above the water line. Work will continue on both banks of the river on side abutments and when the water recedes the lower portions will be concreted. A permanent power house approach road is being blasted out of the side rock wall which will be above the reach of high waters.

If you want to get a thrill talk to rows of our early settlers about the things they did forty or fifty years ago —the way this country looked then with no fences or houses to mar the land- scape—an occasional ranch here and there and the hills and lowlands cover- ed with long grass, and cattle and hor- ses everywhere.

We had two wagons and drove a band of five hundred and ninety horses; this waS in 1896. \My mother drove one wagon and we picked up a hobo to drive the other so the rest of us could drive the band of horses. My sister Mary helped with the horses and rode a sidesaddle all the way.

The road was only a trail so deeply washed in the center. that tho the teams could straddle them, there were places under the wagon where one could have almost ridden horseback the cuts were so deep.\ \In the Couer D' Alene country we had to cross the river nine times; there were no bridges so we cut trees and made rafts, put the wagons on them. r.wam our horses across the river and towed the rafts from the other side with our long ropes The river was not wide but too deep to ford with • Next Thursday from Poison High School Dr. H.

They had been run out of Can- ada by the Indians there, had come down to the Blackfoot country, they in t urn drove them down to the Flatheads who met them at Dayton somewhere about 1890: there they had a fight and were driven back. \Major Ronan took pity on these for- lorn wanderers and had them allotted around Dayton. \In 1897 a smallpox epidemic broke out among them. They all started tak- ing retreat baths and jumping into the lake and invariably died from such dras- tic treatment. Seven hundred of them were buried there.
