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.

N I - ER A II The Culture of Strawberries In the mad rueli for mines many golden opportunities for the acquisition of pleasant homes and a competeney have been overlooked by our people. In days when silver occupied its legiti- mate place in money channels, many tolning camps were booming and snieltere and reduction works were in active iiteration, w hich since the advent of the gold bug, have °eased working and are falling into decay. And inauy who then were steadily employed at good wages are now seeking work in vain. It is true with the opening up of the high grade camp of Lump, the pressure in this immediate vicinity has Ewen to some extent relieved. Hut 'il(at there are opportunities fur profitable employment which are still neglected is true, and one of these is the growth and culture of strawberries. That they can be successfully grown at a profit in this immediate vicinity has been clearly demonstrated. H. M. Hill, of Clancy, one of Montana's oldest settlers, who passed through the halcyon days of placer ruining and saw the rise and fall of many mining camps, and who through thrift and enterprise has accumulated a sufficiency of this world's goods, has a pleasant home on a fine ranch where he has raised most delicious strawbeirree for the past 28 years and has never had a failure. He has never attempted to raise them for profit, but as an example of what may be done with proper management he showed us three rows of berries 80 feet long, from whiéh he has picked this season 225 full pint baskets, of as fine berries as ever grown, and the vines are still loaded. Mr. Hill says that, judging from his own experience, ao acre of berries properly handled could be made to pay from $350 to $500 per annum. Another instance where they have been grown at a profit is on the ranch of D. D. Lyon, where he has about an acre devoted to their „growth. His ranch being located higher up the creek than Mr. Hills, and being at a higher altitude his berries ripen later, and usually begin to be marketable as times of Mr. Hill disappear, thus demonstrating that by the prom - cultivation and location of berry patches, the crop could be extend- ed over a period of two months. There are now many little nooks and corners hidden away in picturesque valleys, watered by pleasant mountain streams, now unoccupied save by an occasional coyote or band of roving cattle, which could be transformed into verdant gardens affording pleasant homes and an independent living for their occupants. • One day this week we were treated to a veritable Sahara eimoon. The wind first formed itself into playful eddies zigzagging up and down Main street pick mg up all the loose sand and an occasional boulder, together with all the old papers and boxes not nailed down, which it rolled up into one revolving mass with which it played football in the most approved Harvard fashion, and finally succeeded in dumping into our front door. Not satisfied with its frolic, it retired to the head of the street, resolved itself into a committee of the whole, reformed and charged down the street like mad. It picked up sand and rocks and ground them into powder which it drove through the windows and doors of every building in its path. It loosened and unhinged every swinging sign before it, leaving a saloon sign in front of the Y. M. C. A. building and a barber pole leaning against a millinery store. It drove every pedestrian under cover, overturned cyclists and played havoc generally. We can't temper the winds, but at the next meeting of our city council a petition will be presented asking that aportion of the surplus fund now in th• hands of the city treasurer be used in sprinkling our streets.

The School Social and Dance. It is a pleasure to be able to say that the social and danoe given at the Miners' Union Hall, on Monday evening, was a decided success. It was very generally attended by the citizens of Lump and many were in attendance front neighbor ing towns and surrounding country. The ladies did themselves proud in the supper provided and made every effort possible ti i make the evening pleasant for all, anti to them is largely due the success of the entertainment. From a financial point it was even more successful. The net amount realized after all expenses were paid amounting to about $75, which has been turned over to Miss Grath. This amount of course goes far towards liquidating the indebtedness to her, but there still remains quite a balance due, and it is to be hoped that all of those who have not yet paid their subscrip, tions to the school fund will make an extra effort to do something, and if all will do what they can there should be but little difficulty in securing an amount sufficient to wipe out the indebtednees. Quite a serious fire occurred on the ranch of Alfred Spalat one night this week, which destroyed a large milk house and barn. How the fire originated is unknown. One of his sons, who was sleeping in one of the buildings, was almost suffocated by smoke, and came near being burned. Our City Court. Lain week we had something to say about the mill of justice which had been put in operation, rind how the mantle of the law hung in graceful folds about the manly form of our newly appointed judge. How he grasped the reins of authority and meted out justice without stint. He seemed to fairly revel in un- tangling knotty problems of law, and to gloat over the misery of the poor victims whom he consigned to the gloomy cells of despair. The idea of his own impor- tance inflated his once lean and -lank form until its rotundity resembled that of a molasses barrel. He walked with chest extended, rot unlike that of a fat duck after a hearty meal of young frogs and crawfish; the curve in his backbone made it necessary for him to tie his hat to his eyebrows to keep it from toppling over backward. Every man in the gulch who had ever thoughtli mean thing in- voluntarily offered up prayers for forgive- ness when he passed him on the street. So frightful was his mein that the young children darted around corners and into dark alleys on his approach. All manner of crime and misdemeanor has disappear- ed and not even the whisper of a quarrel can be heard. The steam has been turned etf, the mill of justice ceased to grind and the whir of its wheels seem silenced forever. As a result the judge has grown moody and morose and his friends say that the disappointment of this quietude haa dimmed the fire of his eye, and that a shade If deep melancholy has settled over his noble brow. While he says to be a j udge without a court is worse than to be a statesman out of a job. GOES TO COLUMBIA FALLS. Offer of 142 Acre. and a Cash Bonus of MI3,200 Accepted. At a meeting of the bord of com- missioners of the soldiers home on the 8th inst., the offer of Columbia Falls was accepted and the home will be located there. Speeches were made by the representatives of various sites, which were listened to attentively by the com- missioners, and after duly considering the advantages of each Columbia Falls was in the lead and its selection made unanimous.

There will be another dance and supper given at the Alhambra Springs Hotel on this, Saturday, evening. Mr. Moses, manager of the hotel, knows how to get up an entertainment that pleases the people, and how to tempt the appetite of his guests with a delightful supper, and satisfy it as well. A good time is assured to all who attend The county surveyor of Lewis and Clarke county has completed the work of viewing the proposed road from Helena to Lump Gulch and will make his report to the (Aunty oommissioners at their next meeting. The road as viewed will extend from Unionville up Oro Fino gulch to the top of the range, a distance of two miles. From the top of the mountain, which is the county line, any of three routes, each of them practicable, may be adopted aa the regular road. One of these is down White Man creek to Big Buffalo creek, another is down Little Buffalo creek, and the other is down Travis creek. It would take but a small st)111 to put a road down any of the creek s mentioned. The work will probably be iirdered by the county, but if not thin Helena mer- chants, in the opinion et the county surveyor, can well afford to do it.
