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.

Mr. and Mrs. Whetstone spent the home of her par- ents, Mr-dnd Mrs. Jno. Berkin, in Butte. A.J.

Cowan has been in Town- send during the past week trying a case involving’ the ownership of aninterest in the Toston mines. The Rev. Mr. McClelland: bas gone to Idaho Falls, Idaho, to perform a marriage ceremony for a couple who were friends under his former pastorate at that place Mr. and Mrs. Con Smith of the valley entertained a large com- pany at their hospitable home on Christmas day, there being about 35 relatives and friends around their well filled table.

A corporation is or- anized as the Boulder Publish- ing Company with Boulder par- ties as officers and directors, the prineipal stock being held by the proprietors of the Age aud the Sentinel, and thedirectors forthe first year, as named in the arti- cles of incorporation, are F. KE. Cornish, C, B. Robertson aud Dr, I. A. Leighton. Consolidation is the tendency of the times in all business enter, prises. While two newspaperscag do fairly well here and have been reasonably prosperous during the past sixteen years, vet the town is not growing, and in fact has not so large a population aud probably not so much busi- ness as a few years ago: As to the future of the town_it is of course hoped that there may be a growth, but there is no present indication other than that it will be slow. One paper can serve the interests ofthecommunity better than two. In many instancesit will be a saving to business men Orisubscribers who pow patron- ize both. The combined subscrip- tion lists will place the Age Sen- tinel far in the lead of all other papers in the matter of cireulk- tion and enable advertisers to reach the people of Jefferson Co. to the advantage of all concern- ed. It is hoped that the Age Seb- tinel will meet with the approval and support of the people of this community asd county. It will strive to merit soch support, and the people of a town or a locality can dg nothing more to theirowh advantage than to be loyal to the local newspaper whieh cham- pions aud advances every good interest of the section in which it is published. As to the Boulder Age the pres- ent proprietor bas published it for nine and one-half years; it was presented entirely. on whatever merit it may have bad as a clean local newspaper and -inei doing what itcould for the repub- lican party.

It has fulfilled its pospose of conveying week the news of the locality in a clean and readable form, with some editorial and miscellaneous read- ing, but it has been principally what may be called alocal paper, and has doubtless given good value for the business it has re- ceived.

At the Court House, Judge Callaway will be bere on Jan. 9th to open bis first term of court for thiscounty. Jodge Par- ker in laying down the duties of the bench on Jan. Ist does so with the good will of the people of the entire district composed of the three counties. He has been district judge for two terms, eight years, and has conducted the af- fairs of the court with a high de- gree of judicial abilitv, and has been especially solicitous in the line of the economical adminis- tration of the courts, so that the expenses which aresometimesand which may very easily become burdensome to the tax-payers, have been kept at thelowest pos- sible amount, and it is believed that. Judge Callaway will in the interest of the tax-payers con- tinue along the same line. Judge Callaway comes to the bench thoroughly equipped for the work, having had ample ex- perience in practice and also on the bench, as he resigned from the supreme court commission to take the judgsbip of this district. It isunderstood that Mr. Mona- gzhan will be retained as court stenographer. Mr. Pfaff will take up his duties as clerk of the court on Jan, 2d. It is reported that Fred Cowan will be his deputy when one is is needed during the sessions of court. In the sheriff's office Mr. Gib- sob continues and no announge- ment is made of a change of dep- uties, Mr. Huber being under sher- iff and Mr. McCall, jailer. Chas.

According to a writer in the Minnea polis Journal, a queer cus- tom prevails in Denmark and parts of Switzerland, whereby arents exchange their children. Janish children are exchanged for the holiday season through the medium of newspaper adver- tisements.
