To mark The Billings Gazette's 125th anniversary, we look back at news on this date from earlier editions of The Gazette and the frontier publications that merged to form the newspaper.

On Nov. 14:

In 1910: “Information of considerable interest on the manner in which the population of Montana has increased and development of the state's resources has progressed is given in a communication received by the Chamber of Commerce from a publicity concern of St. Paul.”

In 1935: “While the number of livestock being fed in the Billings region this fall and winter is below normal, there are more persons feeding small herds of cattle than ever before.”

In 1988: “If Montana University System officials want the Legislature to fund faculty pay increases, they must be willing to trim spending in other areas, several legislators have said. ... A recent estimate by the state budget office said the state will have $19 million less to allocate for the next two-year budget period than it had in the current one.”
