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.

Accidental Shooting at Great Falls. At 2:50 o’clock Sunday morning Policeman Luke Curry was shot through tho loft templo and instantly killed, the bullet being from a revol­ ver iu tho hands of Issac Shaefer, a merchant who rocently arrived here from New York and engaged in business in the Dunn block as the Manufacturers’ Outlet Co. Officer Curry and Sheehy, as was their custom, were trying the back doors of business houses, Curry be­ ing a few stops in advance. Shaefer and his partner, Gross, were sleeping in their store. They had not been notified of the officers’ custom and when Curry opened the ;do.or,«,Shaefer- ‘uiade'^au - outcry- and Curry probably thinking he bad run onto burglars, flashod his light. Shaefer (-at once shot and Curry fell doad.'\ In some manner tho two men at once realized what mistake had been made and they hastened to tho police station, where Shaefer gave himself up AY lieu told that Curry was dead ho fell on the floor shrieking and moaning and praying and cursing, aud his agony was awful to witness. Shaefer has been exonerated. Judge Hiram Knowles has decided that an enclosure moans au enclosure and nothing less. Among the cases tried at this term of court was that of the United States vs. Samuel Beau. Bean was charged with illegally fenc­ ing and enclosing tho public domain in the vicinity of Raymond, in Teton county. It was shown that Bean had built a fence about a consider­ able body of land, but at one end he had left an opening of about a mile aud a quarter. While range stock would have to walk a considerable distance around the fence to get to the opeuing, nevertheless there was a largo space that was uot enclosed, and Judge Knowles held that the fact was a sufficient ground on which to dismiss the action. The action was one of many of great importance to ranchers of northern Alontaua in general and the sheep country in par­ ticular.—Great Falls Tribune. The best way to build up a town is to stand by. every man in the place who does right. Whenever a man is doing well do not tear him down. All residents should bo partners, uot opponents. In all livelihoods the more business your rival does tho more you do. Every business man who treats his customers houostly, courteously and fair will gethis share and tho business that can be secured by united efforts tho better it will be for all. When a town ceases to grow it begins to die, and the more people try to kill each other iu business the moro rapidly will utter ruin come to all. Stand together for the advance­ ment of every citizeD. If a man shows ability to prosper do not pull him back through jealousy or weigh' him do\.\n through a cold indiffer- Ience. .• ' TtlREE-X AND IDS PICKUPS. . News of the Reservation Briefly Toid by Our Representative. From our Sjiocial Correspondent. November 20.—Henry Norris was elocted justice of the peace at St. Alary. Ed Mathews and Billy Casey came iu from the^lake last Alouday. From present indications many of, the whites living ou the reservation will seek fresh pastures in tho spring. The grading outfit recently employ­ ed in improving tho road lied of the Groat Northern have completed thiir work bore. D. F. Hagerty returned to Browu- ing ou the 14th. pleased with the fact that half the voters remembered him on oleetiou day. The.annual annuity issue of cloth­ ing, fabrics and notions was begun on the 21st, aud coutinued several days, until every family was outfitted in good shape. It is seldom that ducks, geese and other migratory water fowls linger here so late iu the fall as now, but thoy are still quite numerous aud where ever there is open water one can find plenty of fat birds. A young and interesting grass widow was recently the recipient of a cooking stove, a set of harness aud a new wagon. Not being possessed of a house, homo ranch or team of horses, she has been obliged to quar­ ter her acquisitions around among her friends for safo keeping until she has a runch issued to her. Tho family of H. A. Norris has filed an allotment claim at St. Alary, which • covers the; eutiro townsite. Notices have been sorvod upon owners of cabins and other improve­ ments to remove them withiu the time allowed by law, uuder penalty of forfeiture, and Hank says ho in­ tends to compel all locators to fill up their prospect holes as well. What was the matter that the meteoric shower of the 13 15 did not transpire? People sat up aud wait­ ed both nights until dawn appeared, but aside from tho limited number of very ordinary altogether scrubby little follows, not a “mete” was seen. Alust be the “astromical” cusses, as a man of verbosity in this locality calls tho star gazers, had been indulg­ ing iu too much campaign fluid extracts, and got mixed up in their dates. Chas Aubrey returned from Chi­ cago too late to vole. While going there, in an attempt to jump a movr ing traiu the speed of which was underestimated, Mr. A. received an injury which made it necessary to go to a hospital for treatment, where he has been confined for several weeks. He is so accustomed to brokon collar bones and dislocated shoulders that he did not mind the injury much, but the detention from hotrjo for 60 long a period was very vexatious. Everybody is pleased with the outlook for nothing worse than an ordinary winter. On account of the seasonal conditions of temperature, and precipitation being so* near tho normal at the close of last, iponth, the local weather observe^ at Kipp forecasted a mikl November,, with much less snowfall than during the past two Novembers, aud predicts that the severest weather will 1)6 exper­ ienced in December aud February.* Jimmy Arnoux received a mysteri­ ous injury the other night, which Re­ sulted in a bad cut on the bridge, ‘of his nose. Some say dno of tho much looked for meteors hit his nasal ap­ pendage. Others thut rude boys threw stones at him whilo enjoying an evening walk, but Jimmy has no explanation to offer. Ho simply says he didn’t stop on it. - James .Walls has returned from | Great Falls and has a big club in (Continued on Third Page.) | Jackets, Capes and Furs—Marvels of art, beauty and tailored e leg a n c e - - t h e g rand­ est .stock of pretty Jackets and Capes ever brought to M ontana now in stock at the Paris Dry Goods Store- Children’s and M isses’ Jackets and Cloaks A m o st c o m p lete line at exactly eastern prices. 5 PARIS DRY GOODS STORE, J GREAT FALLS, M O N T .
