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 regular semi-monthly meeting of the Eastern Star Whist club .was 1 hold in the Masouic lodge rooms on Tuesday evening.with a goodly num­ ber present, but*only enough for three tables participating in the game.

James O’Hara, a well known gam­ bler-, died at Gold Butte on the 4th instant. County Attorney Pray, of Choteau couuty, who went thero with Dr. J. D, Veldhuis, of Chinook, to investigate his death, found that death was duo to natural causes aud was hastened by O’Hara’s excessive use of liquor the night before he died. He was taken siok at 4 o’clock in tho morning of the Fourth ' inst. and lived until midnight of the 5,:u:,e duy. Dr. Veldhuis said that 0 ‘i.lara could not havo lievd leng, even if he had done nothing to hasten the end. Ho had a complication of diseases aud his vitality was very low. It was first reported from Gold Butte that tho death was a myste­ rious one and foul play was hinted, consequently the body was held until after Mr. Pray and the physi­ cian had made their examination. Tho remains were buried at Gold Butte Tuesday by his friends. Im p o rtant If T r u e . \Mormon Jack” Wagner, one of he men who brought the stolen baud of horses to Great Falls several weeks ago, and who was' charged with having stolen them from George Houk aud Carl Lindquist over the ine, has been captured at Swift Cur­ rent and is now iu charge of the au- Iioritios at Browning. Ho will be ;akeu to Choteau aud will probably be tried there instead of iii Great Falls, as any county through which tho stolen horses were taken cau try the case. Smith, the other man, who» was with Wagner when he sold the stolen hojses. in this city, has beeni heard from near Glasgow and is probably in custody by this time.— Great Falls Leader.
