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.

MOORE; MI1'...00T..12, _1905 \ TIRE PROTECTION. The urgent need of 'fire protection has prompted Several of our citizens to take steps . ..leading to its accom- plishment. In our present condition we would be praet ca -1ple,ss' in our effortste save any portion of - this main street should tire gain' headway on a wil.dy It is suggested that property owners and Others interestedgather at TEE INLAND 'EMPIRE office Saturday even 7 jug' for the discussion -of this subject. Plans might IP' formulated for organ- iling a volunteer tire brigade. There' Is much preliminary work that may be done prior to the estab- lishment of an artesian well, which seems an assured fact: it would be a good plan to place ladders. in perma- nent position for Use in case of fire and the; members of the company should determine the location 'of axes and water buckets HY this - contrectiou to impress upon everyone the invert,- -mice of using Care in handling lame,s arid matches. Defective flues are frequently the cause of disastrous tires and should be examined. Cigar smokers, also,. need admonition, as they•are extremely careless in casting away - burning matches 'and lighted cigar stubs • - - All these- matters - will be discussed Saturday evening. • • The Lewistown authorities Will no .doubt :efierr themselves in ferreting Out the cause of that mysterious'. ex- plosion which did no further damage Hiatt startle timid. men and . frighten nervous women. • Tito_ officers, at thought a safe had. been blown , ,i).•11, but we all know en insignificant. explosion ofthat kind would not jar the equanimity of the Lewistown peace officers. It takes a pretty big - 'explosion to Wake them op. They took a second thought 'and . 'then Seat ehed a It over toWtrand -- made dill - gent inquiry, but the echo of the ex- plosion had died away so they had no clue to work on. • At the preset*, writing' the officers: are: mystified. That is •• a ifltgerous • condition for hem to in and We hope they will soon con out of it. Pat 7rOwe . has distinguished him- self us ability to keep out of the hai of the law quite as much as I las by his sensational crimes. .'t•owe has an inordinate desire for notoriety and since his arrest has iv - en out lengthy Interviews concerning his. unworthy achievements, but his grandstand plays for sympathy will have no effect upon people with coin- . mon sense. • They look unon Crowe . as a depraved and :,dangerous man Whose proper place is in the peinitew: t Wry:. What effect the recitation - of Ids Mines and his schemes will have opon misguided youths remains to be seen. No doubt some poor fool will be carried away with Crowe's sugges- 11011 and make an attempt to kidnap 'Rockefeller or M orga In reference to the mysterious ei-. plosion which shook Lewistown last Thursday, the Awns says: \One ru- mor which - was more generally'acoeptr. ;qi than the others was 'that a earload .4 dynamite had exploded while, on he car at Moore.\ And the, Argus further adds that \if it had not been, Micially denied, lists of the killed and wounded would - doubtless have. followed short Of•course it was only a rumor, because if there had been such an explosion We would have all heard about it. The only unusual disturbance hereabouts recently was the Cannonade by *he Moore pin club. Perim)* that was wErt jarred the cit- izens of our neighboring village. 'They have ueer,laws down in Mis- souri. A drum player in a brass band was arrested for embezzlement, and the only evidence against him was that he played to beat. the band. A man down in Arkansas named llogg petitioned the legislature that his name be changed to Pigg., The' petition was granted. Gun Club la Actloa. _ The traps and birds for the Moore gull club arrived last week, and the boys lost no time In testing their skill with the scatter guns. The first attempts of course were not up to the standard - of Jack Fanning and those other artists of national reputation who at the state fair Made ninety- four out of a possible one - hundred ) ; but the Moore enthusiasts Intend—to keep uptheir Practice apilks to be able to make a showing to be nroud of. The regular weekly shoot of the club was held' 'Sunday afternoon. _ The weather .cmditions were far from . ideal. , A piercing cold wind was blowing which made it well nigh im- possible to take a perfect sight or gauge time birdS with any degree of accuracy. But the boys. enjoyed the sport and did 'very well. considering the dilsadvantage mentioned and the further fact that many of them 'never did any trap shootinebefore. Clyde Tilzey started off by pulver: izing six straight, and 'webelieve un- der favorable conditions will hold his own with the best -of them. ; Nearly all the members of the gun Club are as delighted with trap shoot- ing as a small boy, with 'a new toy and look forward eagerly to the time when they may stand along side memb:rs of' otherclubs in competition, • Marshal Was \Touched\ Considerable excitemea was_creat- ed ;an the train g from• Lewistown . last week when Deputy Marshal Geprge Murray made the startling, discovery that hehad• been \touched\ Rif his watch. • Lulled bythe rythmic click of the ear wheels'Mr. Murray had dozed into peaceful slumber. When Mr.'llurray awoke he made a reach for ids time- piece and it wa,8 gone ---chain, charm and all. \My God!\ exclaimed the, excited marshal. \Someent - has stolen my watch.\ Mr. Murray .was soon the center of a sympathetic crowd of men and women, among whom was Conductor i%icheis, who- regretted exceedingly that a `4 . obbery\ should occur: under such circumstances. Mr. Murray . exercised his utmost ingenuity to save himself from humil- iation, for it is quite a joke on an of- ficer when he becomes an easy mark for pickpockets. lu Was not until the train neared Its destination that the conductor, who is somewhat of a practical -joker, handed the watch over to the mar - The marshal—will hereafter sleep with one eye open when Mr. Conductor comes around to take up the \tickers.\ BIrCommerclal Deal. A •commercial deal of large magni- tude' was corisonnhated here Saturday .when plans were - perfected for the in- corporation of a company tb be known as The Judith Mercantile CO.
