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.

DECEMBER 4, 1913 PERSONALITY BEYOND DEATH. in juatice to myself and my co -winters I must risk annoying my present hearers not only by leaving on record our conviction that occurrences now regarded as Occult can be examined and reduced to order by the methods of silent* carefully and persist- ently applied, hut by going fur- ther and sayiag, with the utmost lirevity, that already the facts sa examined have convinced me that memory and affection are not limited to that association with matter by which alone they ean manifest themselves here and now and that personality per- i-ts beyond bodily death. The evidence, to my mind, goes to prove that discarnate intelligence under certain conditions may in- teract with us on the material side, thus indirectly coming adthin • our scientffic ken, and that gradually - we may. hope to attain sonic understanding of the nature of a larger, perhaps ethe- vial, existence and of the condi- tions regulating intercourse across the chasm. A body of re- • aitilonsilaie investigators has even now landed .on the treacherous but promising shores of the new continent. -Sir Oliver Lodge. •••••••• .10 „lathe Fanner Altogether to Blame? • • Too many merchants blame the far- mer - for buying of the mail order hausta. They seim to think that the man who tills the soil goes out of his way to sitnd crut of his home tOwn for goods with the possibility ,of Sayi4 a f e\v cents. The fact is the farmer is a business man.. He does his, buying on busi- MSS pr:nciples and the most of them smait enough to know that send- ing ou i t of town for all of. their sup- plies does not get tht,m anything. It is up to the merchant whether or not the mail artier houses get the business. The. mpchant can beat such esx tablishments with their own weapon, and that iksdvertising. Ite, too, must have special prices on certain article* if he wishes to hold the home trade. Grocers and country merchants Who think they, t a - located that they ;cannot ad- vertise successfally should study the subject of, adveitising. There is wobably no store, city ,or country whose:business could not' be adver- tised 'auccessfully if the proprietor only knew how and had the nerve and patience to do it. There are a few country merchants in remote lo- calities who 1iat4s mastered advertlrs. lag so Successfully that mail °Met competition does not bother them. The idea that you have lived in a town so long that everybody knows • you and you don't need'to advertise, Is a mistake. This very indifference to - doing business the - ways business .should be done in this day and age, is what has enabled the mail order houses to grow froth mere nothing to great eoncerirs.-•=-From' Mont., Trade r.nd Implement News.
