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.

Brown, a for­ mer well known and highly respect­ ed resident of the Big Hole basin, died last Wednesday morning in Pasadena, C a l, whither she had gone last September in the hope that the wanner climate might benefit her. The funeral took place in Dillon last Saturday, Rev. W. S- Watson, of the Episcopal church, officiating. The following is taken from the - last issue of the Dillon Tribune: Emma Fox was born in Butte •bout 35 years ago. Her father, J . D Fox, moved to the Big Hole basin and lived at Fox for many years. He still lives at the age of about NO years, and has for some years made his home with Mr and Mrs Brown. Chauncey R. Brown and Miss Emily Fox were married about IN years ago at Fox The husband and four children— Harold, , Edith, Ruth and Helen—survive % /Fhe family home was in the Big Hole country at Fox until about three years ago, when their ranch property was sold to J E Morse and they removed to Dillon, and bought the David Robb place on South Pacific street. Last Septem­ ber the family went to Pasadyna 1 for Mrs. Brown's health, she being a tuberculosis sufferer. The chil­ dren are in school there. The change did not prove as beneficial as expected, but her life was prob­ ably somewhat prolonged thereby. Mrs. Brown was a member of the Dillon Episcopal church. The Brown and Fox families are among the most prominent, highly respect­ ed and popular in Beaverhead county Mr. Brown was born in Pennsylvania. The bereaved have for their friends and sympathisers all who know them, and many friends will cherish the memory of Mrs. Brown, who was a noble mo­ ther, a good woman and a splendid neighbor.

They would undoubtedly have won by a larger score had any of their fat batters been able to run. However, they got on to the system finally when they bribed the small boys to run for them. Their superabundance of adipose tissue gave them an ad­ vantage in another way, for, to get the ball past them the regulars had either to pilot it over their heads or between their legs, and that was no easy matter. Shortstop Flager stopped quite a few grounders by falling down at the right moment, and Fred Warren on second gam­ boled about like a frisky colt, tak­ ing everything that came above bis solar plexus. C. H. Strow- bridge was a tower of strength on third. He made a pretty double play, hitting Harold Fox, who was trying to steal third, in the stomach with the ball, and doubling him up. Harold stayed on second after that. George Bresnahan Lossl, the nifty backstop, was the shining right of the infield, especially when“be took off ias ca p , and Barber \Jack\ Van Winkle took the whiskers off Jtm o b first base.

Canfield, W J Tope and Dr. Cowperthwaite, was appointed to entertain the buyers from outside points and see to their comfort while in Wisdom. ‘9. The big sale will commence at 10 o’clock in the morning, June 30 and will continue that day and the next. A lunch stand will/be erect­ ed on the grounds for the accomo­ dation of those in attendance. Pre­ vious to the sale, a parade, in which the best turnouts of the ba­ sin will participate, will be held. A stockyards committee was also named, and after a lengthy discus­ sion it was decided that a rate of $1 per head be charged on all hors­ es going through the ring. The owners of all animals sold will be charged, over and above this rate, the following: 2 per cent to mem­ bers of the association and 3 per cent to non-members, with a limit of $5, excluding stallions. Thus it will be seen that those who contemplate selling horses at the sale and who do not belong to the association, can save money by becoming members. The fee is only $10. The proposition of taking up subscriptions for the Park-to-Rark road was taken up, and after a short talk by Secretary Straw- bridge, who attended the meeting in Dillon, the result was prompt and generous. Inside of ten min­ utes several hundred dollars were raised. How much, we are not go­ ing to tell, for we expect the rest of Beaverhead county to do its share, and the reason for our not telling * is obvious. ‘ POPULAR TALKS ON THE LAW Checks and Bank Accounts Additional Locals A number of government Sur­ veyors are at work in the Swamp creek neighborhood.

He was a nephew Lee (Bv Waltei K Towers, A li , J D of the Michigan bar | John McGee owed Warren Gor­ don five dollars for a couple of loads of cordwood Gordon, having de­ livered the wood at McGee's store to secure his money. McGee drew out his check book and signed a check in the usual form, instructing his bank to pay to Gordon the sum of five dollars. This was on Tuesday afternoon about two o’clock. The bank bid not close until four, but Gordon, knowing that McGee was a responsible man of means and not needing the cash at that time, de cidcd he wouldn’t cash the check at once, but would keep it until he needed money at the end of the week. Wednesday passed with the bank open for business in the usual way, but again Gordon did not present the check for payment On Thursday Gordon heard rumors that the bank was in difficulties and might fail, so he hastened to its doors onlcy to find that he was too late and that they had already been closed. The failure proved com­ plete. Gordon went to McGee and asked that he be pe paid five dollars, in- sistsng that it was McGee’s bank that hud failed and that he had never recieved his pay for tne wood delivered. McGee inquired into all the eicumstances and pointed out that had Gordon presented the check for payment on either Tuesday afternoon or any time Wednesday it would have been paid in full. McGee further stated that that he had had the money on de­ posit in the bank and it had been lost. Had Gordon presented the checlq.jrithin a reasonible lime five dollars, at least, would have been saved, and there was no reasonwhy McGee should lose the five dollars a second time. Before the law McGee’spo sitions was correct, he was not required to moke good the check, Gordon having failed to pre­ sent it for payment when he reas­ onable might have a t a time when it would have been paid in fall.
