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 Prospector Voi. VI. Helena, Montana, November, 1916. No. 1 M O R N I N G . The spectre secrets of the sable night Dissolve before the flaming breath of morn; The lavish lustre of the day new-born O’erspreads the vale with its effulgence bright. A thousand fingered rays of golden light Seek out the glories that the earth adorn, And Nature’s beauty of night’s mantle shorn Dawn’s fragrant presence welcomes with delight. The shadowy hosts th’ invading gleam resist,— Retreating ’neath the cover of the mist They gain the whisp’ring grove,—but vain all hope, For radiance advancing sweeps the slope. Hark! feathered harbingers in tuneful lay Proclaim the death of Night, the birth of Day! JOSEPH M. GIEMORE. CATHOLIC HIGHER EDUCATION.
