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.

Tho disease which for the last three years in Montana has been diagnosed as smallpox and which created sur­ prise by its mildness .in contrast to tho virulence with which it is usually associated is declared by some physi­ cians not to bo smallpox at all, but an Alaskan epidemic.

In young children and young adults vomiting sometimes occurs at beginning; iu otbor adults there is no vomiting aud no chill. A rash now now appears, which to some extent looks like measles, and in.four or five days develops into visiclos, with a top and raised above tbo skin.

Hay In The Stack. Several correspondents have writ­ ten for d certain method óf measur­ ing hay in the stack. Here is one that is said to be quite correct, but who first formulated it we are unable to say, says tbo Washington Farmer: Measure the stack for- length, width. -Jiia—ÌAMflt;.! t _ fT?n„ _ era f _ Urn, Jjo throw a tape Tine ovor the stack at an average place, from ground to ground, drawing it tightly. Multiply tho width by tho over arid divide this re­ sult by four; multiply result of divis­ ion by the length for approximate cubical contents of stack. To reduce to tons: For bay that has stood in stack less than 20 days, divide cubi­ cal contents by 512; for more thau 20 days and less than GO days, divide cubical contents by 422; for more than GO days, divido cubical contents by 380. For instance, tako a stack which measures 17 feet wide, 58 feet long and 3G feet ovor. Stack has stood 15 days.' Multiply 17 by 3G, equals G12. Divido G12 by 4, equals 1553. Multiply 153 by length, 58, equals 8,874, which gives the cubicnl contents in feet. Divide 8,874 by 512 equals 17.3 tons in stack. In tho bay the rule is to multiply tbo length, width and height of tho bay, or the hav, together, and then ' divide tho total by 350, the supposed number of cubic feet’in a ton of good timothy aftor it is well settled. Thus a bay 20 feet long, 15 feet wide and Washington.
