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.

Mich., Dec. 14121 The Mountaineer, Big - Sandy, Mont. Your paper came to my ad- dress a few days ago and I was surprised to read that Jacob Stilts had crossed the great di- vide. The Bear Paw Mountain country and Big Sandy lost a tnist woftily citizen, al ways willing to do a good turn for his neighbor. I well remember the day he came with his family to Eagle Creek. It certainly was a happy • family. For a time they lived in my log house on little Eagie creek. They now call it the -stage station. This log house had two rooms. Mr. Seifert and family, friends of the Miltz family, came to the 13:mr Paws from Detroit, Mich. There was no house or tent for them to livc in so we all camped in the two-•mooms. The last buffalo came down 'Big Eag - leeek in I5s5 and John Tingley roped a buffalo calf at Clagget. The spring of 1887 after the hard winter of was a tough one, I got lost in a blis..srd and was out four days and three nights, I had nothing to eat but a pound of Climax chewing tobacco, I was on horsstack, going to the coal banks over the trail from Eagle creek 1.6 the sand hills on Little Sandy creek. As crossed Alka,:i coulee on the bench I counted about 40 wolves drifting with the storm so I arifted with lawful and landed in the brakes etiAhe Missouri.

Mr. and Mrs. Mohr and the Messers Drew were assisting at B. L. Miner's Tuesday. E. i. Johnson has quite a job transporting his school children during the inclement weather. Mrs. Fred Heiberg has been entertaining her mother Mrs. Larson of Colony Ilay for the past week. Cold weather and sickness conibinM to keep Evelyn and Edward Anderson from school lor two days. Mr. and Mrs. Archie Hender- son and little Ardath lelt this vicinity for II. Henderson's some days since. Merry Christmas to ail, whether editors, casual readers seekers of diversion, or con- temporary news writers. Walter Diacon recently home from Washington, aud sister Maude, were callers around old Kenilworth Wednesday. Some of the farmers hive been butchering this week, pre- paratory to having a larder chock full at Christmas. Mr. Gillempie, II. L. Miner, Joe Drew and R. G. Dixon were among the Christmas shoppers from this place to Big Sandy. E. S. Ilaire was ably assist- ing two different neighbors Wednesday, about butdiering and doing chores in their ab- sence. Babe Tingley, our genial mail carrier, who is Johnny -on' the spot is now putting in full time delivering Christmas packages. Feeding stock, carrying fuel, replenishing tires, and hugging the stoves have been the prin- cipal chores of late, especially tbe last three. There has been considerable riding around in jitneys, mov- ing and maneuvering of late. Still there is apparently no occasion for it. Mrs. T. Johnson has been visiting her daughter, Mrs. Murray Upham, and incident- ally renewing acquaintance with little master Russel. Word from the Lanka in Great Falls reports heavy fall of snow on Dec. 17th. People there are excited over the good prospects for the coming year. They also report that the smelter is shortly to be obened. Mr. Bartlett is now pursuing his old time occupation of broom making at B. L. Miners and has on hand a supply of every variety: house brooms, whisk brooms, barn brooms and toy brooms. Oh, the joy, the supreme de- light, of receiving a \box from home.\ And especially of peeking inside the wrappings of the packages for the child- ren. We know exactly how we felt under those circumstance s when we were small shavers. The frost king has been as- serting himself of late. For instance on Sunday a genuine old time blizzard was raging. A speedy descent of the mer- cury followed swift upon the going down of the wind, and mince then till present writing, it has been colder than blases. And now again Merry Christ- mas. Joy and happiness at- tend us all during this metnor• COUNTY ASENT KIES Talsrm: sEEn The Montana Grain inspection Laboratory was created and is equipped to serve the agrksi- tnral interests of the state_ Three main lines of work are now under way.
