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.

Monteath, agent of the Blackfeet, is in the city, says tho Great Falls Leader, from Browning on business connected with the reser vation. For some time past (he Great Northern railway has been kill ing off “I D” cattle* while going through the reserve, and it is to ar rive'at’(hi ' dnd^rstanaing as to\ the number killed that the present visit is made. Major Monteath was for mauy years in the newspaper busi ness and there is not a “ shop” in the state in which he is not a most wel come visitor. “Tho winter has been a particular ly mild one on the reserve and stock have wintered particularly well so far. Oke-wau-cappo, the Creo mur derer, for whom the authorities are looking is not at Cut Bank, nor do I believe he is ou tho reservation; so soon as I heard of his escape from Great Falls, and the chase Officer Joslyn had after him. I put the In dian police of the reservation on the lookout and they have been watch ing for him over since. Officer Jos- lya will have all of the help that he desires from tho reservation but I am of the opinion that he will hardly find the murderer at Cut Bank. He may be among the woodchoppers who are working along Birch creek, but if he is he will be taken into custody by my police today or .tomorrow, for I have issued orders for the arrest of every one of them on tho charge of cutting timber on the reserve. Nearly all th9 choppers are Crees, and they have been cutting tho timber on tho reservation side of the creek, which is the boundary line, aud hauling it across and selling it at Pondera and I shall require that every stick of it be paid for by the parties in whoso posession it now is and that the chop pers be fined heavily. There are about twenty of the choppers in the hills above Birch creek, and all will be arrested and brought iuto the agency today, and it is .possible that Oke-wau-cappo may be among them. As Officer Joslyn is making the trip on horseback I did not meet him. but he. will probably have arrived in the vicinity-of the reserve\ by thc-time of my return. Ash Wednesday. February 20, Ash Wednesday, marks the opening of the Lenten sea son, which is strictly observed in the Roman Catholic, the Greek and the Episcopal churches. Ash Wednes day, which is tho first day in Lent is so called from the custom establish- by Gregory the Great, of sprinkling ashes'upon the heads of penitents on that day. This custom, which is still adhered to, is symbolic of the poui- loutial season of Lent and dates back from the Sixth century. Notice-Shootingr. Mauy complaints have been made to me of the reckless shooting, by children particularly, of guns, etc., within the town of Ohoteau. I wish to give notice that hereafter the law against this practice will be strictly enforced. Penal Code Sec. 1161. Every per son who wilfully shoots or fires off, a gun, pistol, or any firearms, within the limits of any town or city, or any private enclosure which 'contains a dwelling house, is punishable by a fine uot exceeding twenty-five dollars. J ames . S ulgrove , County Attorney: Return of the Canadians. The following will, interest the rnauv northern Montana friends of Col. Steele, who was for a number of years in command of the Northwest mounted police force at Fort Mac Leod: London, Fob. 15.—King Edward, accompanied by Queen Alexandra, today inspected at Buckingham pal ace 350 officers and men of Strath- eona’s horse sent back from South Africa. Colonel Samuel B. Steele of Strathcona’s horse was presented (o King Edward. The king hauded a medal to Colonel Steele. Then tho officers and món filed past a table, the king presenting a medal to oach. The king’s color was brought by an escort of Greuadiers Guards to tho foot of the steps and his majesty presented it to the Canadiau cavalry men, saying it was the intention of his mother to present it to tho regi ment, and he now did so in her name aod not in his1 own. Addressing the troopers, the king said: I feel suro that in intrusting the king’s colors to you, Colonel Steele, aud those under you, you will 1 t always defend it and do your duty as you have done during the past year in South Africa aud will do so on all future occasions. I am glad Lord Strathcoua is here today, as it is ow ing to him that this magnificent force was equipped aud sent out. Be as sured that neither I nor tho British nation will ever forget tho valuable service you have rendered in South Africa. . - Colonel Steele, thanking tho king in behalf of the regiment, assured him that the pooplo of Canada would, always do as well as Strathcoua’s horse, if uot better, aud added that they were “always ready to defend the flag, the king and the rights-of the British empire.” After three cheers for the king, the officers were presented to his majesty. The color presented to Strathcona’s horse is a silken standard, with a sil- yer plate on tho staff, bearing an in scription showing the king presented it to tho corps. Valuable Relics. Mrs. J. W*. McKnight (Carrie Mor ton McKuight) of Great Falls, who is a niece of the Hon. Lovi. P. Mor ton, vice president with Harrison, has received from that gentleman, a curio worth possessing, ft is a piece of wood, taken from the old Morton home, built in Middleboro, in 1652, and years after, when the town of Middleboro-- was, -ro-surveyed, 1- the house was torn down. With the piece of wood camo two of the nails used iu those days beiug made by hand—those used for finishing pur poses beiug flat-headed. Mrs. Mc Kuight was also presented with a beautiful book, “ The Morton Memo randa.” “Dead Easy.” Tho editor of a countr}’ newspaper has no right to make mistakes. Ho has no business to get anythiug into the paper that people do not like, Ho ought to know just what would spit oach individual or he ought to take oach itom before it is published and let tho persou whom it concerns censor it'.. Au editor has pieu(y of time to do this as all he has to do is to hunt news and .clean rollers, and set type, clean the floor, pen short items, hustle for advertisements, fold papers and write wrappers, make paste and mail tho papors, talk to visitors aud distribute ,type, read proofs and correct mistakes, dodge tho bills and dun the delinquents, and take cussings and tell tho sub scribers that he needs mouey. An editor has no business to make mistakes while attending (o (rifles like these and living on ox (ail soup flavored with imagination, wearing old shoes aud no collar, a puleh on the equator of his trousers aud at-the same time turning a smiling eounto- nauco on the man who tells him his t paper is not worth tho subs<-riptiou •price and any one could print a bet ter one with their eyes shut.—Water loo Gazette. Frauk Glab, a well known Gréât Falls busiuess man, was in Ohoteau the first of the week. Mr. Glab ex.- pects to leave tho Falls iu a couple .of weeks for' the coast, where he will spend the balauco of tho winter.
