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.

Aubrey got a hard fall by slipping on the ice last Sunday and injured his hip. Quite a number of the boys at Blackfoot went to Shelby to attend the Christmas dance. John Kipp, commonly known as “Cut Bank John” is building a fine ;en room frame house. As is the custom that all'holidays are fittingly celebrated with a dance, Monday evening was selected as the proper occasion for this recreation. The chinook of. Monday, the 27th, with a temperature of 47 degrees was effective in removing the ice on the range and providing an abundance of water for stock. Rain fell on the night preceding .to a small amount. Antelope have become quite num­ erous of late, having probably been driven in by the severe cold of Iasi, month, from the north. The remnant of this once plentiful .-class of game animals should be. protected and no one allowed to kill them. The school plant on Willow Creek will lie rebuilt and added to, with all ' * 1 modern improvements, including the steam heat and electric lights. The health of the people is excellent, no cases of serious sickuess being re- pqrted for some time. There are now two all-night houses of.eutertainmeut at Blackfoot, S; D. Somes having adopted the meals-at- all-hours system, so as to be in the swim with George Taylor.

The recent conflagration at the school interfered somewhat with the Christmas festivities, on account of so many of the boys who had parts iu the exercises being sent home after ;heir dormitory was burned, blit each and all received their gifts just the same. Christmas dawned very bright and warm with a chinook blowing from the southwest, and everybody ready to take advantage of the salubrious weather conditions. Family gather­ ings were numerous and good-will prevailed everywhere. A. E. Allison has about completed large and comfortable buildings for the care of stock at his ranch on the lower Cut Bank. Although Mr. A’s place is 60 miles from timber,. the G. N. Ry. lays down building material near the ranch, and a good vein of coal in his vicinity affords an excellent article of fuel. The coal chute now being built at Blackfoot is an . immense building two and a half stories high and about a hundred feet long. The frame is up and the grade up to the 2nd floor about completed. A large force of mechanics are at work-on the struc­ ture and it will not be long before it will be ready for use. Over 100 tons of coal daily is required in supplying locomotives at this point. The inland storm service has been extended to this section, uud special warnings of impending cold waves will hereafter be telegraphed to the observer at Kipp. He is advised not. to flaunt the new flag—a red one with black center, in frout of an angry bull, but to hang it on high when a “norther” is coming,* thus informing John Eldredge that it behooveth him to run his herd into the pasture, and thus prevent them drifting to Two Medicine as cattle are wont to do iu blizzards.

U. S. grand jury for attempted mur­ der, has escaped trial, conviction and a just sentence, through a technicality of law, and is now on his way back to his former home, encouraged by this denouement to do more thorough work next, time wheuever his faucy strikes him to bring his little guu into play. Two of the family have their faces full of powder and oue young lad is lamed for life. Perhaps if such hoodlums are permitted to go unpunished for their shooting pro­ clivities, it would be as well hereafter for the inhabitants of this vicinity to make aii ' example of such of­ fenders ahd save the state the ex­ pense of giving any more of this noted family a holiday excursion to the .Capitol city. Protection is the first law of. nature. A bso l e jj . b u r t o n . From our Special Corro'spondont. January 6,—U. G. Allen .is visiting and attending to business in the east. Walter Larsseil wônt down on the Muddy Thursday. Loren Kufus is in Choteau this week assisting Rev. Logan in special meetings. Miss Selma Holmberg has been on the sick list the past week, but is im­ proving. , Miss Lily Larssen has been suffer­ ing from tonsilitis for two weeks, the result of a hard cold. Emil Jacobson, of Minnesota, has been lookiug over the colony with a view of moyiug here in the spring. Wolf Burton came home from the Falls last week in response to a tele­ phone, announcing the serious illness of his little niece. Miss Myrtle Franklin returned Monday from Choteau. where she had spoilt a very pleasant week with Mrs. Chenowith and other friends. Little Hope Mitchel is still in a critical condition, but her parents are hopeful. D-. Cord was out to see her Saturday mid everything is being done to aid her recovery. Rev. Logan.preached >*n excellent sermon in tin* .school hop-p Sunday. We have, people her-- to lid the school house, but oiilv a .o\v f...lhiul ones attend. The pulpit is a great source of education. There is scarcely a sermon preached from our pulpit but contains much of history—modern and uncieut—besides practical illus­ trations and current events. We are too busy to study and read for our­ selves, but in justice to ourselves, we should attend all preachiug services. B. B. Rogers and Harry Ferris have several car loads of hay baled and will deliver next week. Harry says, “we are entitled to six weeks’ just such weather.” Wbuder if he knows? Rex gave us a shaking tip on the Cuban question in his note's of last week. I believe he is right. Cuban beligeraney should be acknowledged and an end put to the horrors of war in Cuba, but while all the world will dance while Nero fiddles for the red- handed inttrder of helpless Crimea, and the desolation of Christian Greece. What can we hope for in the case of poor little Cuba? Our young people held a confer­ ence after services Sunday and called a meeting for Monday afternoon, when it was decided to announce a Clothes Pin social at the school house on Friday night, January 14th. There will be inauy novel features in this social evening, only one of which is clothes pins. The following com­ mittees were appointed. Receptiou, Ida Waterman, Myrtle Franklin, Fred Ferris and Harry Thompson; program, Addie Burton, Stella Lars­ sen, Carrie Farley, Ida Waterman and Tom Larson; supper, Mrs< Franklin, Mrs. Larssen, Mrs. Linder- man, Harry Ferris and Jim Drink- wine. After supper a good literary and musical program will be render­ ed. No gentleman will be allowed to pay more than he is able, or less than 25c for a clothes pin. All are invited. C o l l e c t e d .

Green. »Some of the boys called him “Rusty.” Mrs. Dr. Wamsley passed through our city Monday last. Wm. Vduuott, who has boon in !he employ of Banuaytine Bros, will soon- make Pondera bis home. Harry Hagensou was a visitor at Choteau ou Monday. Ole Strand speut several days with, his wife in Great Falls last week. Clark Lytle, wife and mother went through here Monday ou their way to Great Falls. Wm. Chalmers from the Muddy, was here Friday and purchased two loads of lumber from the Goodrich Lumber Co. Come again Wm. Considerable damage was done here on account of the strong wind of last week. The freight shed at the station was blown down and sev­ eral buildings were moved some. Tho wiud was so strong and lasting that a range steer was blown in off th« bench and lodged against a tree and held there until he starved to death. A good story is told on a promi­ nent sheep owner living near hero. While riding up one of the coulees he discovered a coyote caught in a. trap and killed (?) it, and reported the slaughter to the owner of ths trap. Wbeu tho section men came along they discovered the coyote jumping around and ready to show fight. The cigars are or! Me as he didn’t “kill” Mr. Coyote enough. ____________ P. K, Boo. Their Legal Status. Of late the government has discov­ ered that a number of persons of part Indian blood who are living on the reservation have established resi­ dences there for the mere purpose of receiving benefits. It has been especially noticeable that whon such persons desii&. to marry they have resorted to civil­ ized customs and denied that they were wards of the government. Indian agents have been instruct­ ed to detect such persous and secure their removal from the reservation. To this end the agents have request­ ed clerks of the district ¿ourts to re­ fuse to honor' requests sent from agencies for marriage licenses and, if any perilous living oa tlfj rusefvation swear thnt they ucq not ivufds of t he governmen i tli.„ „X-riis are request­ ed to send eopiV- _* the . to the agencies.
