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.

Baker, the City of Opportunity Baker is being advertised to the world in most attractive manner through the splendid booklet recently issued by the Baker Chamber of Commerce. Throughout its pages are depicted in the most truthful manner possible, viz: by photographs, busy scenes in and about the city, portraying bustling activity and prosperity. The descriptive matter is written in a forceful yet entertaining style, without the bombastic, rhetorical effusiveness characteristic of similar publications. Standing out in bold relief, embossed in gold on the front cover, is the trenchant motto - Baker the City of Opportunity - that will be widely advertised to thousands of men and women in whose hands the booklet may fall. The writer of the booklet believed \the truth about Baker is good enough and stuck to it\. In his opening lines we find: \It sometimes happens, in the process of empire building, that one community is especially fa- vored; that the riches surrounding it and contained in its soil are so copious that Nature appears to have made it one of her principal depositories.There are few places more favored in this respect than is that part of Fallon County, Montana, of which the City of Baker is the center.\ The officers of the Chamber of Conunerce, and particularly Pres- ident Price and Secretary Bamford and Messrs. Wintcrmutc and Bums, to whom a large part of the literary work is accredited, de- serve the thanks of everyone for their faithful service to the com- munity. Of course every business man who contributed toward the booklet deserves credit too, but the good that will eventually accrue will far outweigh the dollars that it cost— DaiIgSpeczd. • 71( y 27 - lone Friday- Finger Steaks w tide Tcotato Tortellini Soup Saturday - Mu Can Eat Soup and Salad Bar Tuesday - Swiss steak wMashed Potatoes Beef Noodle Soup Wednesday - Fried Chicken reloaded Mashed Potatoes • Knoeprla Soup Thursday - Pepperoni Pizza Wraps Creamy Mushroom Soup We serve homemade breads and desserts or take a loaf of homemade bread home!
