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.

V ^'T he Washington Star.declares that Mr. Bryan’s paper is a disappoint ment to many of his admirers. His “Cross' of Gold” inspiration was a rhetorical triumph. But one meta phor cannot make a literary genius auy more than one swallow can make summer or satisfy a hobo. T he old-fashioned spelling schools are beiug revived in some localities. This is a move in the right direction. Orthography is a study that of late years has been relegated to a place of1 minor importance, to make room for the classical studies of doubtful util ity to the average person. The effect of this was demonstrated in recent oxamiua ions at a certain college, where of those who failed to pass the majority failed on spelliug. . Mrs,; S £ ^ !.,Penrod Dead. n ' ' ]'■ --- Mrs.'S. Yr Penrod, well' and favor ably known., iu 'Choteau, died last Monday, at her late residence, 712T Park alley, Butte. Mr. and Mrs. Pen- rod were residents of Choteau. for seyeu years, but moved from here to Butte’ last year. Mrs. Penrod was * r * 1 ' ' ^ the mother of two children, a little boy about Shears and a girl 5 years old, who, besides the husband, sur- vive hey. She was held in high es teem by her former neighbors aud friends here, who greatly regret to learn of her demise. Extra Session of Congress. L a s t Saturday Governor Joseph K. Toole sent his first veto message to the legislature. It referred to house bill No. 18, introduced by Representa tive Mclutyre, of Flathead, providing for tho repeal of llio law which says that two thirds of tho pensions of. in mates of the soldiers’ home shall be retained by the home. An old sol dier never did have an even break with a democratic official anyway, and Governor Toole has not proyen himself au exception to tho rule. B y reference to the latest available official statistics of the strength of tho armies of other nations it ap pears that eveu at its maximum strength of 100,000 the army of the United States will be a pigmy iu com parison wit-h tho military forces of the principal European powers. Italy \s army iiuimbers 211,906; Eng land's, 25-1,000; Austria’s, 265,608; Germany’s, 179,229; Prance’s, 579,- 519, and Russia’s 8S3,116. These figures should make tire anti-mili tarists ashamed of themselves. WiuT about the statute rolaf.ing to prize lighting m Montana? Docs Gowinor Toole propose that it be come a dead letter? Recently m Helena a light, was pulled off, and Tuesda;, night Kid McCarthy aud Tom Moriarity fought a draw at \Wakerville a small town near Butte. The go\ eruors of Ohio aud Illinois have shown very emphatically t bat they will not allow theso disgraceful aud brutal contests to be pulled oil in their ic.spectivo states, and Gov- s orunr Toole has intimated that they will not ini allowed in Montaua, but he «wms to lack the necessary back bone to put a stop to them. I n t h e educational system of Mon tana wo have what might bo called three steps, the common school, the high school aud the state university. In our county wo have our excellent common school system. At Missoula we have a uuiversity of high stand ing. But how cau the ambitious pupils of this couuly roach that in stitution? vVe may graduate them from the common school, but with out the high school training they cannot enter the univorsity. It is a sad fact there is not a school in the county authorized to prepare a pupil for our state university. Can’t some thing be done to supply this missing link? ,Why not establish iu this county a high school, as other coun ties have done? Au institution of this kind would bo a credit to our county.
