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.

It is not at all uncommon to see in thedniiy papors, tho announcement, “Another Pionoor Gone.” How littlo attention ie paid this melaucnoly fact by thoso who havo spent but a few years in Montana and are unac­ quainted with tho history of its early settlors. Thoy are too busy with the daily problems of life to give more than a passing thought to who tho pioneers of Montana wore, or what thoy wero. Thoy know littlo or nothing of the triuls and hardships the pioneers suffered. For them there is no association with tho eurly froodom and privation which tho early settlor Lad to con­ tend with. But to thoso who wont to Banuack, Gold Creek, Alder Gubh or Last Chance in the oarly Oil’s in search of fortune, when all tho west was a dreary wilderness, inhabited only by tho nntiyo tribes, and ovory hour was darkened by a danger, and they had to contost with tho Indian the domain of forest aud stream to them the death of a pioneer moans a deal. It means that anothor of tho old venturesome spirits has crossed tho great divide; another of tho old guard is gouo. It brings up a flood of memories as in a dream, It means (hut with tho passing of a few more years aud the sun of life which for most of them has passed its highest meridiun, will 6ot forever. And when they havo paid tho debt of nature ami havo passed from all curthly scenes, then will bo broken tho first link iu tho liviug chain which binds tho past to tho present Then will bo gono that hardy race I of fearless, gouero’us, earnest nation j builders who formed tho vanguard of western civilization und payed the way for the timid und conservative. It is owing largely to thoir efforts that tho beautiful mountain valleys and broad prairies of the west are dolled with peacoful and happy homos. Tho graves which mark the old roads nnd frails of tho Btn'o are silent testimonials of tho dangers which confronted them. Tho latest of tho pioneers to bo borne to tho silent cit}' of the dead was tho Honorable James Fergus who died a few days ago, ripo iu years and honored by all who knew him. Ho was u gonerous friend ant a splendid specimen of that raco to which ho belonged. Iu his doalh the stato has lost one of its bust citi­ zens. Ho lived an active, useful life aud as he lived so ho died, hatin all shams aud deceptions, and a lovur of truth und justice. Wo would do woll to omulato his virtues, and when tho fitful dronm of life is o’er, sink quiotly aud peace­ fully as ho did, into that sleep which knows no waking. S. F. R alstqn , J r .

Tho free scholarship for a woman iu the National College of Law in Nashville, Tenn., was yosterday of- ierod by State Superintendent W. W. Welch to Miss Pearl M, Keunody of Choteau.

W. Burton and Mr. John Travers.threo well known young meu, and a colored man, had a narrow escape from drowning last night. Thoir boat was overturned, and but for tho prompt work of Oapt. Dovan, life-savers, they would undoubtedly have beon swept over the falls to cor- taiu death. As it was, they wpro res­ cued somo fifteen yards from the brink of tho rapids, when they had becomo almost exhauslpd. It was shortly after 10 o ’clock last night, and after tho fireworks’ dis­ play in Jeffersonville, when Billy Dazzle, on watch in the towef of the Life-saving Station, hoard cries for help coming over the water from tho direction of tho Indiana chute. The alarm was sounded, and boat No.l dashed toward tho Indiana shore. Uncle Sam’s boys arrived just time. They found the boat over turned and all four of tho young men struggling in tho river against tho swift current, witlpn a few yards of the brink -of the falls. Thoy had been swept away from the boat apd lost (the oars, so they wore entirely helpless. Ipne8 w’oro thrown to the exhausted men, and they weie finally drawn into tho big surfboat more dead than alive. Mr. Rob Courtney, of the Boat Club, and Wallace Mitchel, the boat tender there had also Heard the cries and gono to the rescue in a skiff. They succeed­ ed iu catching the boat _ before it went over the fqljs, but the oars and all the seats were lost, Nono of the young men in ques­ tion could be seen this morning, and it is not known how tho Boat was swamped. It is thought they W-ere lipset by tho waves o f the big steam­ ers. iu F iy'1 G \ f / ï G O í G y-|\Ñ /-/G ?i\Ñ ~ / j\\ ? |\Ñ ?AÑ 5/\Ñ ^/ÿv.lÿV'G: K A T E W E R T H E IM & CO., LARGEST CLOTHING AND SHOE HOUSE IN NORTH­ ERN MONTANA. * * * 208 Central Ave., GREAT FALLS.
