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.

Pursuant to call, board met in special sossion, at 10 o’clock a. m. at the office of the county clerk. Present Chairman C. B. Perkins. |Com’r W. M. Foster and the clerk.

Board then adjourned tho special session sine die. than the girl in tights and boys’ clothes of tho pantomimes, musical farces and the liko. I have seen Sara Bernhardt play W o ol P r ices T h is \S e a s o n . Woolgrowors may safely count on ns good prices this year in tho Great Hamlet and L’Aiglon, and I have felt I Falls markot 88 thoJ obtained last P lace Is B e y o n d His Means.- S tage Frights. It may bo that I am a man of no imagination, an incorrigiblo realist, but 1 have such a horror of freaks that I cannot ovon endure a play in which I have to watch a woman playing the part of a man, or a man playing that of a woman. If the play is comio, even a farce, it takes away all the fun for me. I cannot laugh at the jokes per petrated by the two old sisters of Cinderella; their antics do not bring a smile on my faco; the more they dnnee and shriek and perspire in order to “ fetch” me, the further down the corners of my mouth go; the thing becomes to me sad, pathetic, tragic. And the prince, with his tightcorset, his wido hips and(not unfroquentlv) part of his bosom uncovered, with his head crowned with a broad-brimmed feathered and plumed hat, and his pretty little feet trotting in ladylike manner, makes mo shudder. When lie courts Cinderella, puts bis arms around her waist and kisses her, the whole thing becomes so loathsome to me that I simply cannot stand it and lave to go, so as not to make myself objectionable to my neighbors in the theator. Oh, the terriblo nights I have spent in English provincial theaters, behold ing the fat blonde lady who plays the Prince, Sinbad the Sailor, Aladdin, Robinson Crusoe or Dick Whitting ton. The English fot centuries have spent their early winters in seeing these five pantomimes, and will spend many more at it, hearing the same story, the same jokes, with# just tho addition of a few local hits, according to the town in which the pantomime is performed. I haye also seen the music hall girl in boy’s clothes, doing her turn dressed very much like tho prince in the last act of Cinderella, without any reason whatever, for generally the song was not even that of a boy. However, to my mind, therels worse still worse than at English . panto mimes. A young woman may take part of a boy ton or twolve, ovon in a serious play, but the part of n young man should bo out of questiou. No man has more abmiration for Sara Bern hardt’s geniuB than I have, but hor mule impersonations jar on mo. I fouud the whole thing ludicrous. A mau’8 partplayod by a woman ap peals to mo as does the stago lion or horse played by two mon. Now wo are promised Romeo aud Juliet with Sara Bernhardt and Maud Adams. Nothiug will induce me to go and see it unless I am promised oithor Wober or Fiolds as tho nurse. H o man in woman’s clothes does not entertain me any moro than the woman in men’s clothes. I do not care what ho does; ho doos not amuse me, he bores mo. I loatho auyono who tries to ontertain mo by ille gitimate, by foul moans. Tho man who puts on women’s clothes commits a vilo sacrilogo; tho woman who in public puts onjmen’s clothos commits an act of indecency; both 'commit au offonco which the public should nover porrnit. I am uot a prudo, but I insist that art should remain rofinod—absolutely artistic. I fail.to see why ovon a musi cal farco should not be refined, Managers, if they would try, would soon discover that audieucos would find more pleasure in sooing refined plays than in witnessing vulgar per formances. In England and in Amer ica, as well as in Franco, I have in variably soon vulgarity received in stern silence, and refiuod songs aud dances receivod with applause. Why should not tho young mon play tho parts of young mon, I should liko to know? Lot also old women play tho parts of old women. No man can play them as well as they can.—By Max O’Roll. Engaged Girls Barred. “ No engaged girls need apply” is tho latost phase of tho nursing pro fession. Doctors and matrons havo, it appoars, been discussing tho sub ject, aud have come to the conclusion that damsels who are engaged to be married should not bo admittod as probationers to training school be cause, in tho opinion of those stuid matter of-fael porsons, they only dal ly with nursing until tho tiino couios to.trip lightly into marriago, aud thus stand in the way of thoso who intend to devote thouiselvcs whole-heartedly to their profession, says tho London Telegraph. Moroovor, doctors and matrons on- tortain a strong suspicion that not a fow of theso giddy candidates seek tho privilege of wearing a nurse’s uni form, with all the attraction it posses ses, for tho purpose primarily of working havoc among the hearts of medical students and others with tho view of speedy marriage. An argu ment used on the other sido is that oven young women who aro ongaged to bo married would dorivo inestim able advantage from passing a year or two among nutsos and learning something about how to troat simplo maladies such as occur frequently in houso holds. That may bo so, but nursiDg is now a recognized pro fession, and those engaged in it do not look favorably on thoso whom they regard as matrimonial inter lopers. So tho engaged girl pro bationer is to be shelved. year, with every indication at present pointing to an incroaso of a cent or perhaps two. Tho first woolbuyor of the season has put iu au appoarance hero to look tho field over, and ho talks about prices boing too high at present That is a very natural sort of talk for him to make, and it is not to bo ex- pocled that immy wool growers will take it seriously. From tho present prices boing paid in stales to (ho south of us tho prico at Groat Falls now should be .about 15 cents, or evon a littlo above that. Lust year tho average horo was loss than 14 cents, so that nt present rates on advance of ouocout may bo counted ou. It is contended by Mr. Thayor that oaeteru pricos do uot justify tho present prices now being paid in the west, aud thoro is something in this. But tho highor prico is boing paid in tho west bocauso oi tho desire to got this wool in tho confident boliof that by the timo it gets to eastorn markots the highor pricos will justify the pur chases. It is, to a certain oxtont, a speculative price, but tho basis for that speculation is sound. Atprosonttherois a lull in tho Bos ton markot on account of strikos in somo of tho woolen mills, in conso quonco of which manufacturers are uot buying freely. This prevents prices from advancing; but tho fact that thoro lina been no docroase in prico when tho buyers aro so matoral- ly decreased indicates that the con ditions fully warrants present pricos, and that as soon as tho strikes are fully Bottled— which they aro likely to bo very shortly—pricos aro likely to advance.—Great Falls Tribune. Washington, April 24.— Captain -■ Charles E. Clark has declined the ap pointment of a special naval repra- sentative at the coronation - of King Edward, and the president has namëd^-■ Roar Admiral Watson for that mis sion. - The declination of Captain Clark to be a member of the American embassy to tho coronation is viewed with gen- - eral regret.
