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.

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. A good show last Saturday Holbrook Blinn in the \Unpardonable Sin\ played at the Owego Theatre last Saturday night, in our estimation one of the best and most complete plots ever placed on the screen. Dorothy Bernard and Glenn White, in \Sporting Blood\ is a Fox film, an exceptionally good plot, it reminded one of the dear old Kentucky days; the race track, the fast horses, and a love drama all in five reels which produced one of the best shows that has yet been in Baker. Manager Welch, an experienced show man, this fact alone enables him to give the public first class stuff. Tonight is the Universal program. Friday night is pro- grammed Kitty Gordon, in \As In A Looking Glass.\ • Local Man as Sharpshooter By hitting the \bulls -eye\ with unerring skill from the standing, kneeling, or sitting position, Paul 0. Warren of Baker has qualified as a sharpshooter in the United States Marine Corps, according to an official report received by The Times from the Philippine Isles, through Washington, D.C. This keen -eyed young man received his preliminary in- structions in gunnery at the U. S. Marines training station, Mare Island, CA, where the soldiers of the sea are drilled for duty ashore and afloat. His splendid showing at \slow\ and \rapid\ fire gained for him this coveted distinction. Hereafter he will wear the badge of marksmanship and receive an in- crease of pay. Doubtless the Baker boy will have many in- teresting incidents to recount to his friends when he returns from Cavite, Philippine Is. - the town made famous by Ad- miral Dewey during the Spanish American War. Paul is a son of Mr. and Mrs. 1. E. Warren of Baker, and he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps at its Seattle re- cruiting station on April 19. 1916. • A fine bunch of catde Chas. King, the local cattle dealer received this week three car load of choice Canadian heifers and disposed of 50 head the same day they arrived. He also received two carload of choice young cows that previous week. The Hutton Bros. who bought a large number from King early in the spring, were back to buy more the other day and took out 35 head. Their cattle have done well this summer and will make them good money. Chas. always has a good supply on hand and at the present time has over 200 hear. Now is the time for the farmers who have plenty of rough feed to get a hold of some of this young stuff. Cattle will be higher in the spring than ever before. You can not lose by buying the good stuff. The increase will soon pay for them and they will grow into money while you sleep. 0,14_Spe*4 • 1,4 22 - 28 Friday - Pork Schnitzel • Potato Soup Saturday - All U Can Eat Soup & Salad Bar Tuesday - French Dip • Cheeseburger Soup Wednesday - Sunny Burger • Knoepfla Soup Thursday- Cranberry Chicken Salad Sandwich • Chicken Noodle Soup We NM homemade breads and desserts or take a lord of homemade bread home!
