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.

Then they slipped and slid, while tevie spoke sweet words to the car, trying to persuade it to make its way through the mud. The girls final- ly arrived at the ranch in time for a delicious shrimp dinner. After dinner everyone gathered in the rustic lodge and relaxed in front of the huge fireplaces. Hav- ing regained some vim, the danc- ing commenced. There were shottisches, polkas, rye waltzes, square dances and even some jitterbugging. After a few hours everyone was glad to retire to their cabins and hit the sack. The next morning as the girls jumped briskly out of bed, they were greeted with a blanket of snow but the breakfast of hot cakes and sausage renewed their spirits.
