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.

Group of Youngsters Take Wild Ride, Stop Just at River's Edge Two automobile accidents occured near here yesterday. both of which might have meant tragic death, but fortunately no one was seriously in- jured in either case. The first took place yesterday after- noon when an old model open car driv- en by Milan Nunnally, in which a group of youngsters were hilarously riding back and forth on 0 street, left the road near the Ponderay club. The car was evidently traveling to fast to turn the corner and in its wild progress struck a sign boars., traveled cross country, struck a telephone pole and tore it down and finally came to a rest- ing place in a tangle of barbed wire fence at the brink of the river bank. That the youngsters escaped without being seriously injured was declared miraculous by those who witnessed the accident. The second accident occured about five o'clock yesterday afternoon when a blowout caused a car driven by Rex Joyce of Hot Springs, S. D., to leave the road and overturn a few miles north of here on the west shore highway. The man was accompanied by his wife and family. Mr. Joyce was brought to the hospital here where an examination showed that he had sustained no broken bones and was suffering only from a shoulder bruise. The other occupants of the car were not injured. Mr. Joyce will be able to leave the 'hospital today.

The grass was knee high and this flat was the favorite grazing ground of black - tail deer; they would jump up every where when a rider came along. There were no roads, only a trail over the hill. After July this trail was black all day long with moving pack trains of In- dians on their way east to the buffalo range. They came from Spokane, Couer D'Alene, Bitter Root and farther to go with the Pend D' Oreille's to hunt; camped here to cross at the ferry and at night their cooking fires lit up the banks of the river. The ferry was kept constantly busy taking them across. In the fall they returned with pack horses loaded with meat and camped again as they returned to their homes. Down along the lake shore, where there was cover the prairie chickens were so thick and so tame, that they would not bother to fly when a rider came along. In the spring their drum- ming could be heard all day long. The Indians copied many of their ceremon- ial dances from these feathered drum- mers. At one side of the flat, where many years later was to be a town, was a cluster of log buildings built by Bap- tiste Eneas. Here he settled with his wife and little daughter Angelique. Baptiste was a Canadian of mixed French and Indian blood. Be had a freight line from Hell Gate (later call- ed Missoula) to the foot of the lake; from here the freight was taken to Demersville. Baptiste used a team 01 eight oxen and had Michel Pablo and his wife hired to drive the other freight wagons. Mrs. Pablo drove four horses. Baptiste built and operated the first ferry across the Big River (as it was called then.) The ferry was built of huge cedar timbers large enough to hold a four horse team and wagon with room enough to spare on the side for riders. Before the coming of the ferry the Indians swam their horses across and towed their children behind in boats made of cow hide; high water or low made no difference, and accord- ing to Angelique they never lost a child. Years after the coming of Baptist's family the Poison's moved out along the lake shore, and because their name was easily to pronounce Baptiste named the little settlement Poison. Occasional prospectors stopped for a day or two at the cabins, perhaps a lone rider or the (Continued on page Si Recent Weddings Montgomery-Swayne Miss Eva Louise Montgomery of this place and Donald Swayne of Butte. were wilted in marriage June 20, at the home of the bride's uncle and aunt.

He discussed the credit problems of agri- culture and the short comings as well as the accomplishments of the Land Bank system, starting with the passage of the original farm loan act in July 1916. The speaker told of the difficulties under which the system was established and the various phases through which it passed to reach its present day status. Largest Cooperative Mr. Ehrhardt said, \however under those circumstances the Federal Land Bank system was started, and upon it has been reared the farm credit admin- istration, which today is the world's largest cooperative with leans in excess of $3.300.000,000.00, to more than 1,300,- 000 farmers and farmers' organizations serving every agricultural community in the United States of Puerto Rico.

Aside from the interest savings, the system has provided loans with terms fitted the July enrollment has been received here.

The conununica- tion follows: \The Thompson Falls Chamber of Commerce has noted with considerable I concern the results of vandals desecrat- ing signs which are placed along our highways. — The State of Montana has gone to a great deal of expense and effort to , place beautiful signs illustrative ot historic points and places of interest in the state. Many counties have done much good in placing directional signs. The Bureau of Public Roads and the State Highway Commission have done Much in placing safety and directional g signs. The Forest Service has placed a great many signs giving the names of Monographic features, location of trails and roads and other matters of inter- I eat to the general public. \Seemingly a campaign against the o desecration of such signs would be well worth while. These signs are made and ' placed by taxpayers' money. It ccsts o taxpayers' money to replace defaced t Signs, money which could be used to far better advantage for the placement of additional needed signs. The need of the signs to Montana residents is evident. Most of us do not know all of our own state and when travelinc tress MIMS are of great help. \The value of these signs in encour- aging more of the much needed tourist again more of the much needed tourist trade in Montana is self-evident to every thinking citizen. \We would very greatly appreciate it if your paper would use its good ot- fiees in taking such action as you feel justified toward helping in a state- wide campaign against this desecration of dens by means of editorials or such other ways as you think best.\ NE',, sec. 29: the NW', of the NW's and the NE% of the NW'.,. sec. 33, T. 23, R.23.

Wells of Whitefish, prest dent of the International Four States Highway Association, is making a semi- annual trip over the route to keep the communities on the road interested, and to note and report progress along the highway. President Wells has just made a trip north of Whitefish and into Canada, and reports that work is under way on the Canadian side of the line, and the province of British Columbia has started work on improve- ments between Roosville on the border and Elko, using a force of about one hundred men. The travel -way is 22 feet wide, and the contractors are hard - surfacing the road as they go along. The highway in Montana between Whitefish, Eureka • and the Canadian border at Romyille, Wells reports in ex- cellent condition. Last week, the Forest Service let the contract for a short strip at Conner, in Southern Montana, at the Idaho State line, thus making the International Four States Highway into the state of Montana all completed. With the work going on north of the boundary line in British Columbia between Roosville and Elko, the Brit- ish Columbia sector leading to Banff. Lake Louise and. Jasper National Park will also be almost completed. Addi- tional contracts in the Sawtooth Na- tional Forest and along the Salmon River makes another step in completing the mileage in that state. Nevada has a big construction prograin in pro- gress on highway 93 and one-fourth of that state's construction funds this year will be expended on the International Four States Highway route. ' In a statement made last week at his home in Whitefish, Montana, Presidei t Wells stated, \There has been increased enthusiasm all along the line as the vital importance of this north-south in- ternational highway has become more apparent. Communities that were luke- warm when the International Fou: States Highway idea was first laim- ched are now enthusiasatic, and in each of the four states, renewed pressure is being made to hasten improvement. This too, has I emitted in a heighseneo interest in both Canada and Mexico. It Is protahle that additional construction news will be available before the date of the annual meeting in Ely. Nevada this coming September. I really believe\ said Wells. \that we have the most varied and diversified scenic route in the United States, being the shortest link connecting Canada and Mexico. \We have the trees, the great rivers. the streams, the fish and game, the high oases, and in the south, the in- comparable deerst scenery. Along our route are fifteen great national forests. ten river basins and national parks and points of interest.\ President Wells will be entertained by the communities along the route as he makes his journey to Calexico, Cal., the piesent southern terminus of the International Four States Highway. Ultimately, the road will go from Cal- exico. California and Mexicali, Mexico, twin cities on the Mexican border, across the Colorado River and connect vith ,he International Pacific Highway at some point north of Hermosillo. While on his trip southward, President Wells will confer with the Governor en the State of Lower California. Mexico, and urge through him that the Mexican Government do everything to hasten early completion of this extension nt the Four States Highway into and thru the Mexican Republic. FORESTRY RESTRICTIONS WILL CA INTO EFFECT JULY 2nd Carrying a serviceable shovel. axe and water bucket is required when making automobile or pack horse trips in the Flathead Forest on July 2 and there- after during the fire season according to Forest Supervisor J. C. Urquhart. Users of the forest are also warned against smoking during their period ex- cept at approved camp grounds and against discharging fireworks in the forest. These restrictions are not intended to discourage the proper use of the Na- tional Forest but are measures which if they are conscientiously followed will materially help in the prevention of forest fires. Green forests bring revenue to city and county. Don't let such a loss be your fault. Charlie Mansur is spending a few days at Hot Springs. Enthusiastic Over Cannery Prospects J. C. McIntire who has been in the county for the past several months in the interests of establishing a cooperative cannery here, left the ter part of last week for Bozeman. Members of the cannery committee and Mr. McIntire are highly enthus- iastic over the prospects for the can- nery, Ralph Tower. committee chair- man reports.
