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.

THE MADISONIAN, VIRQINIA CITY, MONT. Jyt.Y 10, 1914 t. 4 vrtrty\ • ,008grr S. g.,0, Copyright, 1914, by Panama -Pacific international Exposition Co. SUPERB FRIEZE FOR WONDERFUL EXHIBIT PALACE, PAN- AMA -PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION, 1915. T HE world will . enjoy at San Francisco in 1915 the most marvel- ous collection of sculpture ever presented at a universal exposi- tion. • The photograph above shows an exquisite has -relief rep- resenting the development of the industry, to be placed over the entrance of the colossal Palace of Varied Industries. The figures are of huge size. The work is by Ralph Stackpole, the brilliant American sculptor, and represents one of his finest creations. HARRISON BOOMS.' When A. A. Bridges announced some tima_ago that he was going to 'place an additiCM to - the Village of Harrison before the public for invest- ment, some looked upon the proposi- tion as a dream, says The Three Forks Herald. But last Friday the dream was dispelled, and today the new townsite is a veritable fact. • A speCial from Livingston - on - the N. P. early in the morning brotntht a large contingent of buyers and spec- tators, all of whom enjoyed the mag- nificent barbecuend remained to bid on the lots, oratch the spirited contests for choice selections. Harrison is surrounded, by__ _kW_ environments for the making of --- liiibstanttet little cityi- being -in the center of one of, the most 'productive agricultural regions in the state, and having an area - of approximately 2.5 miles from which to draw trade. An elevator is to be built this sea- son, -a bank is to be established soon, and a two story sul mg as contracted for, the lower floor of which is to be used as a picture show house and theater, while the upper floor is to be used as a fraternal hall and general auditorium. Two monster oxen were roasted to feed the multitude, the work being under the direct charge of that veter- an cook, John Henderson, who for many years was cook for Gen. Miles' company during the early days in Montana, when 'white men and In- dians were struggling for supremacy In the northwest. Colonel Hilman, the veteran town - site auctioneer, was there to cry the sale, and it did not seem to the colo- nel's old friends present that he was a day older than when he conducted the sale of tAwn - loili Ili Three Forks, about six years' two. when he dis- posed of nearly $77,000 worth of property in one afternoon. He was as candid in explaining the present conditions and future prospects of t new town, as versatile in crying the sales and as cull of good, kindly hum- or as when we saw hini, last, and kept his auditors in a pleasant frame of mind from the openitig until the close_ of the auction._ About 135 lots were sOld at pnces ranging from $35 to $76; every piece of the ground being a good buy eith- er for residence, business or specula- tive purposes. • -------Htirrison--is -located in a splendid farming country, has a progressive . „lot of business men and energetic farmers, all of whom will unite with • Mr. Bridges in making his town build- ing proposition a giand success, as it deserves to be. The place is lo- cated in a fertile valley; surrounded by rich bench lands, has abundance •of.watera1. fin.e climate, and is al- ready far advanced in agricultural development, and has a daily train service connecting east'and west with tl-e N. P. main line. With these con- -ditions and a progressive people all boosting for the advancement and un- binding of their town and country, Harrison is bpund to become a mag- net which will hold its own and draw trade from a large scope of„surround- ing country. It is Mr. Bridges' intention to make residence at Harrison and to give h . pe..senal supervision to the wants of h , wers fled the development of his new townsite. In placing the town of Harrison on _the man Mr. Bridges is to be com- mended for his enterprise and ener It adding another place to the galaxy of new towns in, the ifertile regions of the great Treasure state. And whether he reaps financial re- se-rdq cemmensurate with the outlay of capital and physical energy, or whether he is at present awarded that measure of praise to which his enter- prise entitles him, yet it is certain that the new town of Harrison will live and thrive to bless the present and succeeding generations of that community.

The subject of this sketch, Mrs. Harriet Courtney, widow of the late Robert Courtney,- and daughter at Mr. and Mrs. George Olmstead, was born in Sharon, Conn., on Aug. 13, 1832, and died at Sheridan, Montana, on July 1, 1914. She was married to Mr. Courtney at Syracuse, N. Y., in 1850 and came to Montana in the fall of 1881, and lived at Paracm's Bridge, Jefferson county, this state, until the fall of 1883, when the family remov- ed to Sheridan, where they have since lived. - She leaves to mourn her loss, one Sister, Mrs. Emily Dennis, who is in her 87th year, and in good health, -living Mich.; and four chil- dren, two sons and two daughters; George Courtney of Milwaukee, Wis., Robert Courtney of Harrison, Mont., Mrs. Richard Taylor of Sheridan, and Mrs. Fred H. Wolverton of Jef- fers, this county. Mrs. Courtney was in the enjoy - assessors from all over Montana. Mr. Keating has turned a.copy of the ma- terial over to J. M. Kennedy, commis- sioner of agriculture and publicity, which wile form a valuable cblleetion of statistics for his office. // Mr. Kennedy frequently recpves requests for the amount of ail- farm produce, including live stock, grown upon each farm in each county in the state, and with the information which is now coming in he will be en- abled to furnish the required data. It is estimated that more than 50,- 000 farmers in , Montana have already furnished the data to the assessors. All reports will be compiled in the office of Commissioner Kennedy with- in the next two months, so that any one desiring it can receive informa- tion upon the exact number of bushels of grain and the number of livestock on each farmer's ranch in the state. The slips call for the following in- formation: The name of the farmer, the location of the farm, the town- ship, range and county; whether the farm is operated by the owner ' or tenant; the number of acres under cultivation; the number of bushels of wheat, flax„ rye, barley, corn, oats, peas, potatoes and sugar beets; the number of tons of alfalfa and hay; the number of acres of hay land; the number of beeves, calves, sheep and hogs sold or slaughtered during the year. MONTANA'S SPLENDID FISHING. • Newspapers of the state testify ev- ery week through more or less brief items to the splendid results , that have be_en_olltained by the restocking of streams with trout and grayling fry, says The Butt:.: Miner. Either angling has greatly improv- ed in Montana during the last year or two, or the press takes more trouble in recording the catches made by fishermen, or possibly both conditions have - simiething - to - do - with - the - good - showing made by this commonwealth as a sportsman's summer paradise. The Madisonian is the one newspa- per in the state that is not Living up to the reputation it established last year, when not a week went by, without tha - -editor noting numerous -presents-of-Ash Sent to him, but the omission this season may be occas- ioned by recent serious illness in his family, in which he has had the sympathy of all the members of the gang, but at that it is high time he was loking up the anglers in the vi - Virginia City and getting a• line upon what they are doing. An interesting item went the rounds two or three weeks ago to the effect that the state fish commission had employed an expert whitefish fisherman to prospect Flathead lake for this particular species of the pis- catorial tribe, but so far The Miner has not noticed any account of white- fish leads being struck in that ex- pansive and most beautifully located body of water. -For 10 years or more hundreds of thousands of lake whitefish fry have; been planted annually in the Flat- head, but no authentic statement of anyone ever seeing any signs of a whitsfish in the lake is of record. It is long past the time they should be showing up, if the fry has riorettd - ther-eirriy • stagea...afjilan t - ing Hopes have been held Ctiii that Flathead lake Would one day rival the great -lakes in the production of this ,most edible fish of commerce. • As a &ate abounding in game fish Montana is hard to beat, and • that, this is so, is largely owing to the energetic efforts continuously being made to keep its- streams and - lakes 1- stocked with_ little _fish. death of her brother, Hiram Olm- stead, aged 71 years, at her home on June 27. She had often expressed the wish that she wanted to live as long as he did to care for him in his declining years. The wish was grant- ed her and from the day of his fun- eral her health declined and she pass- ed away peacefully in the full pos- session of her faculties, though too weak to say much at a time. She had often expressed the wish that she might have herchildren with her when called to the higher, better life, and the Wish was granted, as the son, Robert,•and daughters, Ida and Anna, watched over her, lovingly, to the last, her last sentence .being \All is well,\ and with the word \chil- l:hen,\ on her niiii-ehe..Rassed awek Mrs. courtney joined the M. church .at Clyde, Ohio, - in 1874, and united by letter with the M.

When State Auditor William Keat- ing dug up a long -forgotten statute, req - that - all cOunty EtSSeSSO collect statistics with reference to the amount of produce taken from Mon- tana farms, he started something which will result in furnishing data on the exact amount of grain and stock raised by each individual farmer. Mr. Keating, several months ago, happened to be pursuing the musty statute books in his office and ran across the law which made it the duty of 'all county assessors to se- cure such data. The assessors were accordingly notified, and practically all inimediately began the compila- tion of such statistics. As a result of the efforts of Mr. Keating, the information printed on slips especially made for the purpose is coming into his office from county SALARY REDUCED. With the,beginning of the new fis- cal year on July 1 several Montana postmasters. have been given in- creases in salaries by the postoffice department: The changes in annual pay, as announced by the department, are t Bainville, fixed at $1,000; Baker, $1,300 to $1,600; Big Sandy. $1,300 to $1,600; BroadView, $1,200 to $1,400; Butte, $3,400 to $3,600; Cascade, $1,- 40 $1,504-Criester,_$1,400 to 600; Chinook, $1,700 to $1,900, Cho- teau, $1.500 to $1,600; Columbia Falls, $1,300 to $1,400; Columbus, $1,- 600 to $1.700; Cut Bank, $1,400 to $1,- 500; Deer Lodge, $2,300 to $2,400; FA:. alaka, $1,200 to $1,300; Eureka, $1,- 400 to $1,600; Fairview, $1,600; Fort Benton, $2,000 to $2,100; Glasgow, $2,100 to $2,400; Glendive, $2,400 to 82,500; Great Falls, $3,200 to $3,300; Hardin, $1,300 to $1.400; Harlem, $1,- 300 to $1,500; Harlowton, $1,600 to $1,700; _Havre, 82,400 to $2,600; 1111- ger, $1,400; Hinsdale, $1;200; Hob- son, $1,200 to $1,300; Huntley, $1,- 1,00; Joliet, $1,000 to $1,100; Kalis- pell, $2,700 to $2,800; Lewistown, $2,- S2,900Malia,_$_14,600 to 41,700: Miles City, $2,700 to $2;800;.Mond - ak. $1,200; Moore, reclined from $1,600 to $1,400; Plentywood, $1,600 to $1,900; Poison, $1.600 to $1,700; Poplar, $1,- 300 to $1,600; Redlodge, $2,000 to $2,- 100; Roundup. $2,100 to $2,200; Saco, $1,200; Sheridan, $1,000 to $1,200; Sidney, $1,400 to $1,700; Somers, $1, - 000 to $1,100; Stevensville, $1,790 to $1,800; Thompson Falls, $1,300 to $1,- 500; Twin Bridges, $1,200 to $1,400; Valier, $1,600 to $1,700; Virginiik City, reduced from $1,400 to $1,3001 hitefish, $1,700 to $1,800.

Jalmer, a sugar lobby- ist, prepared ; bitty -two charts which Senator Lodge used to illustrate a speech in the sent the the sugar tar- iff. At Mr. LQ 0'8 request the charts were printed as a public doc- ument, says The New York World. The lobbyists got busy. They edi- ted the senate order justhow is not yet known -to read 'charts and data pre4.1•ed by Truman G. Palmer,\ and under that elastic definition issued the famous pamphlet, \Sugar at a Glance.\ This pamphlet, which had nothing to do with any government activity, and was no part of the sen- ate records, was printed partly by private firms and partly in the pub- lic printing office, and was mailed from the shops of issue in franking envelopes of Senator Lodge. The en- velopes alone cost $1,565.16. The postage at ordinary rates would have been $57,600. There is nothing new in this out- rage. Every vacation time obliging members of congress lend their franks to political committees to send out electioneering material, and go home with easy consciences o And then the post office department, to make both ends meet, proposes to raise postage rates to the general public who pay! There is one way to stop such abuses of the franking privilege, and it should be tried at once. It is to make every department of the gov- ernment pay for the postage it uses and get the money honestly in the appropriation bills. Then we should know how much the service was cost- ing.,apd w1115 - 1 - Av s spending the money, and for what purposes, and could at accordingly. WATERLOO MAN WINS. Guy C.
