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 MONMAL. 13 morning we took a lunch and started out to find its source. We tried climbing up the steep mountains; but the trees and under­ brush were so thick that we soon had to take to the rocks in the stream. These were not much better, They were large and slip­ pery with pretty green moss. We were forced to crawl over them much of the time to keep from slipping off into the stream. We each took a turn at falling into the water. Even Skidoo, in leaping for another rock, tumbled into the swift little current, which’ al- most carried him down stream. Our hearts were so touched at the sight of his struggling that Mickey waded in and rescued the yelp­ ing canine. We climbed for about three hours but seemed no nearer the source of Roaring Brook; so we called a halt and ate our lunch. As we were eating, threatening clouds began to pass over our heads; and soon it commenced to rain. The big pines sheltered us very well as we climbed over rocks and slid down the mountain side on pine needles. Nevertheless, we were drench­ ed when we reached camp ; but we were soon dried by a good camp­ fire.
