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.

Friday morning the boy’s hand and aria were badly swollou and he was still suffering some from the nausea that accompaDiod tho bite, but the thing that seomed to worry him most was that ho would bo unable to play ball with his team next Sunday.

It had boon generally understood that Smith was acquitted by the court, but it tran spired today that such was not the case. The court, it is said, found Gsueral Smith guili/f of violating tho rulos of war and soutoucod him to be reprimanded by tho reviewing author ity, which in this case is President Roosevelt. Inasmuch as tho case is considered strictly confidential until finally acted upon by tho president, it is impossi ble to obtain any official information in rogard to it.__________ . A civil suit begun in the United States court yesterday by District Attorney Carl Rash, is intended to result in the ejectment of Jamos L. Ash from land he is said to have fenced in Yellowstone county. About nine sections of land is concerned in tho proceedings. Tho govorumeut claims it is all a part of the public domain. In tho complaint the government asks that, if Mr. Ash refuses to re move the fences from the laud iu caso ho is ordered to do so by the court, the marshal be given authority to tear down tho barriers at once. Tho government says tho foncos inclose all of the land in question and indi cate tho builder’s claim to tho prop erty.

Tho last one, who was the poorest dressed of the three, saw a dollar bill ou the sidewalk. She picked it up with a little grasp of joy, which was quickly chased away by a look of doubt. This was succeeded by a sigh of determination, and she quickened her steps until sho ovortook tho woman in front of her. \Horo you dropped this,” sho said, putting tho bill hurridly into tho woman's hand, as if she feared hor purpose would weakon. Tho socond woman took it mechan ically and started to put it in her pockotbook.

The heart of man is a book—nay, it is an encyclopedia of everything that has come within tho range of its personal experience. It preserves an eternal record of all the storios in which it has plnved a part. It is strange what sad things may bo hid den iu its depths without giving any token of their existance. Tho hoart muy bo gay and send tho smile man tling to tho face, but all tho while you see only the topmost slatum. If tho graves bonoath woro to give up thoir dead, the smiles would seem strange ly out of placo. It is just like this green earth of ours that renews itself year afteryoar and has not on its surfaco any token to toll what is the simple truth, that it has given graves to 200 generations of man boings.
