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.

Enlarge it without the hassle of recon- struction? You can by simply picking up a paint roller. Big fat stripes would dwarf a small bath - right? Paradoxi- cally, just the opposite is true. Wide horizontal stripes appear to push out the walls, making the room look larger. I. The trick is to layer soft, related shades so the eye is drawn sideways without jar- ring by too much contrast. Tip: Soft green and yellow give a one -window bath a soothing sunny look. 2. Layer soft related hues that are closely related for an analogous scheme. Tip: Find closely related hues by consulting a color wheel at your paint store. 3. Pick one color of paint. usually the lighter of the two for the base color and apply two coats. 4. Measure the wall's height in inches and divide by five. The resulting number will be the width of your stripes. Tip: If you end up with an awkward fraction, add a little extra to the top and bottom bands to round off the number. 5. Measure the stripes, mark them using a pencil and a level, and then tape them off. 6. Apply the darker paint to the alternating stripes. 7. Finish the room with a few dark accents, such as a mirror framed in a dark wood or dark colored baskets or shelves to give the pale walls a sophisti- cated edge.

Butte H. Tipton, Publisher Entered at the Postoffice at Baker, Montana, as Second Class Matter Two dollars the year, strictly in advance The Fallon County Times will be 100 years old In May 2016. Following are a couple of stories from back then. Thursday, June 8, 1916 About Ourselves The Fallonite, formerly published by C.R. Fagaines at Baker, has been changed to the Fallon County Times by the new publisher, Butte H. Tipton. Mr. Tipton is making various improvememnts in his new acquisition and is giving the people of Baker a newsy and attractive paper. Mr. and Mrs. Fagaines will leave shortly for their old home in Chander, Okla. --- Plevna Herald Unanimity for Dust Abatement The editor of the Times started out this week to get a concensus of opinion from business men of Baker on proposition of oiling the streets. Mayor Barstow was the first man approached. \That would be one of the best things that you could bring before the people at this time,\ was the mayor's com- ment. His manner indicated the enthusiasm he felt in the matter. He further said it had been brought up sev- eral times before, but it was thought the cost would be prohibitive and nothing further was done. \What do you think of oiling the streets to keep down the dust, providing the oil can be procured at four and a half cents a gallon and 750 gallons would oil an entire block? was the question put to G.H. Suit. Being a mathematical turn of mind, Mr. Suit got out his pencil and commenced figuring. He thought it would cost about $80 a block to do the job, including the oil laid down here but not the sprinkling expense. Mr. Suit thought the humps and depressions in the streets should be filled before applying oil. R.L. Bodley, of the Midland's hardware department, mentioned two towns near Indianapolis, Greensfield, and Knightstown, where the plan has been tried and proven satisfactory. Manager Raymond, of the Midland's lumber depart- ment, also endorsed it. Just as we happened to meet them on the street, in store or workshop, we broached the subject, and in no case heard a dissenting voice. There was such unanimity of opinion it seemed a useless waste of time to carry the query further. Further facts as to the cost of the enterprise will be obtained and published in a future issue of the Times. In the meantime it will help the cause along to talk it over between ourselves.
