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.

C linkenbeard , Studio La Grande, 218 Coutal Ave. Outlines of tho plau for enlarging and improving tho Methodist Episco pal chuich givon by Rev. Buzzoll Sunday night. “ Yo.u ueed not fear the skeptic’s puny hand, Whilo near tho school the church Bhall stand; Nor fear tho insaue bigot’s rule, While near the church shall stand tho rchool.” Tho “ little red school house” aud tho Christian church are tho symbols of Christian civilization. A clean heart and a cloar hoad constitute tho divine imago iu which man was created. Tho church and the school stand for tho restoration of these. Choteau is blessed with a echool building that is an honor to the town aud tho cause it ropròsonts. By con ference time, if- the present pian of tho trustees materializes, Choteau will have a church that will be more adequate to servo the interests it represents aud tho needs of tho community. It is in tho mind of tho trustees to build u parlor for tho Ladies Indus trial socioty on thè southeast cornor of tho church 14x18 foot with a lurge bay .window. This socioty has sub scribed 8200 with which to furnish it. Back of this pallor, a room 18x20 foot is to bo built to bo used for a Sunday school room for tho infant class, for prayor mootings aud tho Epworth League. This room will bo connected with the ladies parlor by rolling doors so that they can bo used together for socials, ontertainmonts, etc. Both ref these rooms will be connected with tho main room of the church bv rolling ilQors so that when r t-Xr occasion may dotnand wo can seat 100 more people than at tho present time. Back of the Epworth Leaguo room is to be a kitchen 7x18 feet to be fitted up for the ladies io caso they desire to servo refreshments at any of thoir socials and to bo used as a store room so that all tho other rooms of tho church may bo kopt clear of everything required by tho janitor. Back of this kitchon and back of a part of tho main room of I ho church is to bo a reading room 18x25 foot for the young men of the town and sur rounding country. Thoro will bo a gate from tho north streot to this room. A part of the ground now enclosed in tho yard of tho stablo will bo fenced off for a lawn so as to mako the surroundings as pleasant as possiblo. This room will be sot apart for tho young mon w’ho will form thoir own organization, adopt thoir own rules, and will be thoir own headquarters for self improve ment, sociability and recreation. A large number of the young men havo told mo how much they would appreciate such a home. Tim Alfalfu Dramatic company have subscribed $5Q to help build this room, and it has been hinted to me that tho young men of Choteau will give au enter tainment for tho benefit o f tho church and if they do tho proceeds will go into building of this room. A gen tleman living moro than 2Q miles from town ha6 made a liberal dona tion to these improvements and when doing so was so much interested in tho reading room projeot that he said ho would be glad to mako another donation to help furnish such a room. Tho church of the future will be the institutional church. While in Boston I studied this new method of church work a little and I found it a great success. YouDg mon bave moro temptations and loss to holp them than any other class of people. No class of people £qe mpxe apprecia t e of help than young men, and no work is of greater value to the church and the nation than that giyen to encourage young rn^q, I f mono? can be secured to materialize our this work. Iu ordoi to. hold tho at tention of children aud do thorn any justice the Sabbath school must be as efficient as tho graded public church the greatest church in America because that it possessed the greatest reforming powor. His remarks gave me great encouragement in view of tho fact that some think our church narrow, when he said that tho fact that tho Methodist church prohibits all questionable amusements that Bomo othor denominations tolerate, making it of great value iu a com munity in counteracting that spirit of moral laxnoss and oxcossivo frivol- > > /3/5 * they will come back married or stowed.! .-v'■% away in the stomach of the object of ,yiV i 1 their affections. * Russian Thl9tle Hay. school. This is not possiblo uuloss | that dissipate its moral wortn and you havo a soparato room for tho I lowers it social life aud business cbildreu. A skilled toachor can tako Snudili plans, Choteau will have the first institutional church in ‘Montana. from 40 to 50 of those little people iu a 1 0 0 m by themsolvos aud by tho uso of a blackboad, pictures auc storios, can hold them speil-bouud for 25 miuutos and so impress upon them tho thoughts of thobiblo lesson that they will novor forgot. I ox- poct to soe this kind of work done when our improvement are accom plished. Tho work of tho ladios of this church aud congregation can not bo excollod in any town in tho slalo. Thoy are worthy of a room in con nection with this church that they can call thoir own. They should havo a parlor not surpassed in beaut} aud convenience by any in town, whore thoy can moot thomsolves aud outortaiu thoir friends. Man is a social boing and Christian ity is a social religion nnd it is tho duty of the church to provido social entertainment for its mombors uud friouds and /or tho public. With all of tho connected rooms of tho pro posed improved church ovory cou- vonionco for any kiud of au outor- taiumont propor fora church to pro vido will bo possessed. There will bo times when wo will ueod tho proposed additional room for our regular Sunday work. Tho church is now well filled on Sunday ovonhigs. In case of spocial services or special intorest wo ulready need more room. I f tho money can bo ruisod wo will put iu a gasolino gas plant. Tho oil will bo put in a tank 20 feet from tho houso and every room will bo woll lighted and there will bo no dangor from oxplosion. Tho ladios can sup ply their stove in tho kitchen from tho tank outsido tho building. Wo also want carpets for tho rooms and oak pews for tho mam room and all the furnishings necessary for tho outiro church. To coinpleto tho church and properly furnish it will require at least 82,01)0, SxiiOof which has already boon subscribed From a financial standpoint inouoy put in a church is a good invostinont. Tho church is the greatest wealth producor in tho world, because it stands for morality und morality creates wealth. If tho church iu Teton county had been strong enough to create public sentiment that would havo made drunkenness and gamb ling impossible during tho last 20 years this county wo.uld havo been worth hqqdrcda of thousands of dol lars more today. A largo general merchant in Oregon who controlled the business of a largo tract\ of fron tier country a few years ago gave SI,000 to establish a church thoro and said it would pay him to divide his income with a preacher if ho could thoroughly christianize that county and thereby stop tho waste of prop erty caused by tho ungodly lives of tho people. I have found that the real estate owners and business men of new towns are liberal subscribers to churah work. Many of them havo told mo that they have observed thqt the de sirable immigtqnta would not locate thoir families in towns whore they had no church privileges. Tho owner of a livery stable in a certain town gave mo $300 to build a chqreh becauso ho wanted. k*8 family to* havo ch.u.fcb privileges though he did not himself belong' to any church. The chief business., man in a fron tier town told mo ho woqld, give a block of land and $100 in cash to ♦ u * * » 1 build a church' and a hundred dol- • t lars a year to a preacher. He is a member of another church but he said be considered the Methodist It gives mo great oucouragemont to find that tho community as a whole appreciate tho need and advantage of a more convoniout church. Coyness of Females. Tho medioval ide.a of coynoss is ex plained in Cleopatra’s answer to Char- main, who, when ho advised Jier, in order to win Anthony’s loyo, to give way iu everything and never cross him, said: “ Thou touciiest like a fool; tho way to lose him,” uud Fink, in his chapter on Modern Co}’uoss, sa}Ts: “The instinctive perception that a thing is valued iu proportion to tho difficulty of its attainment is what taught women tho ‘cunning to bo straugo.’ ” Seoiug that they could not complolo with men iu brute force thoy acquired tho arts of beauty nnd coynoss as their boat woapous against this super ior strength—tho beauty to - fascinate him, tho coynoss to touch him that in love, as in fishing, tho pleasure of pursuit is tho main thing. How it stands out in our modern civilized ludy, who protends to ho iudifferoiit aud monnwhilo thoroughly enjoying tho patience, disapointmont and nnxiofy of a man, oven when sho is inclined to like him. Tho humbler woman as shown us iu ono of llardy’s uovols, oxhibits bor maidenly modestly by striking her woor iu tho fuco with purt of a nowly- slaughlerod animal, or sho hits her admirer a poworful blow on tho ear und ho is supposed to enjoyed it. You will find that lower dowu in the scale of animal creation that tho female animal has a cuto way of kick ing with ull her force her admirer in tho ribs, as iu tho case of horses. Whilo with eatllo tho female will energetically butt tho malo sho favors most. As wo go on dowu tho Bcalo tho fo- mnlo becomes even more dangerous. Among the spiders, for instance, tho malo is very much smallor than the Tomato, nod ho has to oxorciso a great deal of caution when ho goes wooing. The experience of tho male spidor, as described by Darwin, would mako oven tho most honrtlesscoquottosooins oxcusabloin comparison. Darwin says that Do Geor saw a male spidor that, “ iu tho midst of his preparatory caresses, was seized by thoobjoctof his intentions, enveloped by her in a web, and Ihon devoured.” Female fishes seom to havo the cannibalistic coynoss and enjoy tho flavor of their male frionds. Evidences of coynoss are found oven among insects. It is believed that there are two probablo sources of this feeling. Fink tolls us“ the first is a vague instinctive prosentimont that with the meeting tho labor of life begins.” Ho also says: “ T I 1 0 socond source of coyness is probably another in stintivo feoling which inducos the female to, defer her choice until the combats and maneuvers of tho males have shptrn which ono is tho most onorgotic, courageous and persistent, for he will obviously be boat able to snpport her brood and protect it as woll as herself against enemies.” Let men think this over and never complain again of tho cruolty of flirts, and coquettes. But let them be thank ful that they are several pegs higher up ^h,® fin© ot animal creation than the spider, for instance. ' They ought to bo glad that they are men to wl\orq nothing worse hap pens than having their hearts. broken rather than spiders, who, when they go courting, are uncertain whether Shortly after the Russian thistle made, appearance in this country some one discovered that it could be turned into hay. This led two experiment stations to test its merits in a general way. These stations wore Minnesota and Colorado. When the thistle is youug it is a good feed for sheep on account of contents of salt, which is one of the virtues found at the \form er station. A peculiar thing about the Russian thistle is the fact that it con tains a considerable nitrogenous mat ter, aud in this regard closely resem bles rape or clover. It was also found at about the same time that hay could bo made from the plant if it were cut early, before the thorns form and the woody matter becomes pronounced. A Colorado man, writing of the Russian thistle, says: “ Cattle eat the thistles, but they are poor feed,” “ Cattle eat them in large quantities, but they physic the cattle,” is the com ment of another. A Kansas writer says: In June, 1895, my cattle were fod Russian thistles, both dry and green. We neyer made better butter or more o f it our liveB.” The Dro vers Journal is by no means inclined to advise its readers to grow Russian thisllos for feed or forage, but it might not bo a bad plan to utilize them, if possible, if you already have tho thisllos. Sheep And Cattle Trouble During tho fore part of last Nov ember trouble broke out in Uintah county, Wyoming, when a band of masked cattlo men attacked some shoep herders. Cattle men have occu pied this section for some time, snd apparently, consider it theirs by right o f poseBsion. Lately sheep have boon driven into the locality of Utah, which has further stirred up the feel ing concerning the fencing of govern ment lands. Sevoral days ago a fight occurred near Big Piney iu which at least two men are reported killed. Troublos in this section seem only g o ing from bad to worse. Sheep men and tho cattle mon are not able to get along in anything like close proxim ity. It is said that the sheep practic ally deveslato tho country over which they pass and practically leave noth ing for tho cattle. While this is prob ably more or less exaggerated, it is undoubtedly a fact that sheep and cattle in Wyoming will not get along iu harmony for some time yet to coine. How To Decido Tie Vote. In ease two candidates for the posi tion of school trustee receive the same number of yotes, neither is elected, but tbe county superintendent of schools has the authority to appoint to tho vacancy tous existing a com petent person to serve until the fol lowing annual election for trustees. This is the substauco of an opin ion written for W . W . Weleh, state- superintendent o f public instruction, in tho office of the attorney general. The opinion quotes the law providing that the connty commissioners can appoint ¡an eligable person to any county office in case of a'tie vote, the quotation being used merely to show that a tie in the vote leaves a vacancy. It is the duty of tho clerk of tho school district to certify to the county superintendent the fact that a tie vo t» was cast, thereby leaving a vacancy, and the superintendent has the pow er under the law, to fill the vacancy temporarily. The state superintendent asked fo r an opinion upon the request o f Mm. E. L. Kitchens, who stated that th * election in school district No. 13, C V - bon county, April 5, resulted in a tie.' -— ï p o a a e a a ïo » '^ ^ Anyone having in their or knowing of the whereabouts. books belonging to 'School District’tti.1^ No. 1, are requested to return a a m * . ! | j L to the school house, or report ta m in g Some of the books are ; marked belonging to District No. 3, C h o t m ^ S | | | | ^ Choteau county.
