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.

The subscription price of Quinn’s Review has been reduced from $5 to $4. This is done for the purpose of increasing their circulation. W. B. Raleigh & Co., of Great Falls, quote Fome unheard of prices this week. Their ad is always an interesting bit of reading matter. A series of religious services are being held at the M.

Gibson .manager of the Park Hotel, was recently pre­ sented with an elegant gold headed cane by employes of the hotel, Jos. Hirshberg & Co. commenced their annual work of taking inventory this week.

Dr. Beaupre has recently- added several artistic and convenient im­ provements to his office. Doc is ever on the alert for the comfort of his patients. What’s in a name?

JANUARY STO C K REDUCING SALE 1 ’ t '' » j ' • ^ *r. Originated by us ten years ago, is now in full blast. Our store was crowded all last week by patrons who for years have taken advantage of this honest Marked down sale. Hundreds of good honest. bargains in ail depart­ ments. This is what we are doing. 7 Win. Hodgskiss has stored 50 tons of coal in the basement of the court house, beleiving it ample to keep the county officers in working condition until the biennial house cleaning in November. In a letter received this week by a Ohoteauite from Mrs. C. R. Scoffiu, she states that her husband is gain­ ing, but very slowly—is'not yet able to go about much. The Cascade Bank, of Great Falls, inserts an ad with us for the coming year. If you contemplate a change in the handling of your money, you can safely do business with them. You can always judge a man by the smell of his smoke. If you want to be well thought of buy Maturity, Diploma or Club House Bouquet ci­ gars—at Adlam & Thompson’s. District court will convene in Choteau Monday, January 17. There is nothing special at this term of court, only an argument before the judge for a new trial in the Bristol case and two persons now confined in the county baBtile to be tried for minor offenses.

Shannon, of Raymond, was in town Tuesday and made the Chronicle force a cheerful call. He reports the range in that section of the country in excellent condition aud the cattle looking fine. Will Jackson is now enjoying a six weeks’ vacation from his duties in Jos. Hirshberg & Co.’s store. The reaction in business after the holi­ days is the reason of his not being needed at present by the firm. Dr. Brooks returned Sunday from lis Missourian trip. Doc says when le got off the train at Kansas City and shook hands with a few friends le wanted to take the next train to Montana. He, like many others, binks Montana is good enough for lim.

John Zimmerman, the veteran well driller, informed us that he would put up four wind mills this week. One each for F. Truchot, Ed Bailey, Jim Hughes and H. Bailey. The demand for wells and wind mills is becoming enormous and the people are fast conceiving the idea that it is the only way by which they can protect them­ selves from s hortage of water for their stock.

W . B. RALEIGH & CO. Great Falls, Mont. There will not be a club dance at the Towh’hall Saturday night as ex­ pected. Elsewhere will be found an article —.“ Sectionalism in the United States” —written by Angelique Trucbot. It is very meely written and worthy of reading. Jacob N. Austed has taken W. Flynn into partnership with him in the restaurant business. They have cut meals to 25 cents aud are selling tickets, good for 21 meals for $5. A party composed of Wm. Hodgs­ kiss,'Tom Smith, John Lyons, Dave Able and Charlie Lamb will start Sunday for the mountains, expecting to be gone about a week. A visit to the wagon shop of Wheelwright Chas H. Connor is enough to convince one that his work is satisfactory. He has a first class painter and all work turned out has a citified appearance. ' In compliance with the school laws of the state of Montana, the stars and stripes now float o’er the heads of the younger generation, a flag having been raised on the school house this week. « A large transaction in sheep and ranch property was made on New Year’s day, the holdings of Morgan & Williams, of the Teton, being pur­ chased by Bannatyne Bros., of Brigh­ ton. The deal includes about 4,000 head of sheep, together with six ranches and improvements, etc., the price paid being $15,500. The prop­ erty was for sale a year or so ago, the price asked at that time being $8,000. Tom Lett, the rounder, made this office a formal call New Years.- Suc­ cess to you Tom in your proposed new venture. May the Lord have mercy, aiid show’ you “ where you are at.” “ If such a thing should come to pass,” etc., we would’ donate the use of the Chronicle office, and perhaps set the type and print the paper for the wouldbe Lett et. al. factional scheme. Choteau can amply support a third paper. Furthermore, there is a little money in the treasury, which could be used to buy Metropole or Sweet Violet whiskey with. There is nothing small about us. The more the merrier. On His Way to the Reserve. The new agenU'for the B-laCkfoot Indian reserve came down- from Helena Wednesday and left for the agency by the way of Havre without stopping in this city. He was joined by his wife at the station, the lady having been visiting her mother and sister here for several days. Major McLaughlin, who ia anxious to get to work on his Klondike scheme in company with several other gentle­ men, will be released as soon as Capt. Fuller reaches the agency. Major McLaughlin has held the position of agent since July 1 last.—Great Falls Leader. All Is Well, The weather of the past week has been all that could be desired, both for’stockmen and pleasure seekers. Until yesterday it seemed more like autumn than winter. The thermom­ eter has registered high, until yester­ day when it turned colder, and a flurry of snow fell. About six inches is reported at Dupuyer. Cattlemen are jubilant over the range conditions and stock is in excellent condition, “ Our Pride,” that’s the name to call for at Adlam & Thompson’s. The trustees of the Catholic church will put in n bid on the old school house, and if accepted will use it for a church. They have money enough in the treasury to pay in full. FOR SALE.
