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.

In several London hospitals sur­ geons are now using the telephone whenever they have occasion to probo for bullets or other metallic objects. The receiver of the telephone is placed on tho head of the operator, and tho patient is placed, in the usual manner in contact with a plate, the general medium employed being a wet sponge or some paper saturated with a saline solution, which is spread over the plate. The latter is connected with tho telephone by a wire and the probe after it has been introduced into the body, naturally vibrates as soon as tho foreign metallic substance comes in contact with it. The probe is also connected with the telephone by a wire, and thus no such blunder is possible, aB sometimes happens when an ordinary battery is used. State Land Sale In FlathePd. What will undoubtedly be the larg­ est sale of slate land of tho year, that is Flathead county, has been set for September 11 by Register T. D. Long. It is generally conceded that the / business the register will do at this auction m il exceed that of any that has been or will be held this year. Flathead contains some o f the finest farming land in tho state, and the auction should prove as great a suc­ cess as that of last year, when thous­ ands of acres were sold and leased. Oil Well In Flathead. Helena, July 31.—An oil well that gu ihes ovor 100 barrels a day and sh>»w8 promise of a great capacity after development has boon discovered in the Flathead oil fields. The Associated Press is authority for tho aboye grand news for Flat- head peoplo, and the investors in oil lands in this city will be very anx­ ious until they find upoo which prop­ erty tho strike has been made. From the fact that the striko was reported iu Helena and not in Bulto, the Butte company cannot be the lucky one, and the good fortune must bo devidod between the Kintla Lake Oil company and the Calgary company. The lat­ ter have alreadyreported an oil strike, and it is possible that the Kintla Lake company is tho fortunate one. Last reports from tho field of operations was that tho Kintla was working con­ tinuously on the well and making rapid headway. More news is ex­ pected tonight, and if it is a strike in the Kintla oil well, the nows will be brought here by one of tho operators tonight. Nearly all the stock in tho Kintla Lake Oil company is held by Kalispell people.—Boo. Will Sail the Seas. Two Helena boys have boon appoint­ ed naval cadets at tbo Annapolis academy and both are now iu the oast preparing for the examinations which they must pass before they may be admitted to that famous gov­ ernment school. Hobart L. Clayborg, son of Judge and Mrs. John B. Clay­ borg, and William Parborry David­ son, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. David­ son of Helena, are tbo fortunate lads who have received the Annapolis ap pointments. Young Mr. Clayborg was appointed by Senator Paris Gibson and Mr. Davidson rccoived his appointment from Senator W. A. Clark. ' ' Both uojb'are iiuu ei ‘Jut. Weiut*. preparatory school at Annapolis mak­ ing ready for their examination. It is considered almost certain that both will pass tho examinations, which are lowever very sovore. Sins of the Tqngua. Tho sins of tho tongue all point to the necessity and profit of self mastery. There is danger in the tonguo that often brings sorrow to the innocent ones, as woll as tbrowB a rofloetion on a pure character. If this confession of fuilure and magnify­ ing of the office of tho longuo seems exaggerated, lot any ono sit down quiotly and think of .tho sins and cruelties of human speech. Tho careless words which no repentance can call back again. Tlio rash prom­ ises which it has cost us so much to fulfill, tho expression of tho lower nature which has shamed tho higher, the confessions of evil and yielding to falsehood, the hot and angry words which sobor thought condemn—theso are some of the porils of the tongue. On the other hand, like most of the uses of the world which turu so easily to evil, the tongue may be tho instru­ ment of great and lasting good. Cattlemen on Warpath. Masked men near Lackers, Wyo., are reported to be boating sheepmen and killing their herds. Jack Mercer, a foreman for Leonard Sedgwick, is ill from the effects of the terrible beating received at tho bands of the masked strangers. Ho, with several herders, wa« at­ tending Sedgwick’s herds near Lam- broaux, when the party was surprised by men in masks, presumably infur­ iated cattlemen. Mercer was gagged, blindfolded, beaten and then grappled to the ground. Joseph Gague, one of the party, was shot and killed. Nineteen other sheephorders in the , -vicinity wore treated in the same manner. For 24 hours they lay per­ fectly helpless, while the masked men proceeded to burn their saddles and outfits and seize their clothing. Four thousand five hundrod head of sheep were then driven into a corral and there slaughtered; Most of thorn belonged to Sedgwick, whoso loss is nearly $13,000. Railroad Assessment Raised. Aftor sponding most of tho aftor- noon Friday in deliberating on the question of fixing the assessments of the railroads, tho stalo board of equal­ ization surprised every one by mak­ ing enormous increases in tho values, in somo cases as much as three huu- dred por cent. Iu the morning tho board called before it some of tho railroad mou to ask for additional information con­ cerning some of the arguments ad­ vanced. Tho afteruoou session was exeoutivo and tho board mombers discussed at somo length the question of fixing the valuation of the roads. All main lines o f tho principal ronds in tho state are placod at about £16,- 000 a mile. Tbo Butte, Anaconda & Pacific was valued higkor than any other system, the board’ fixing it at $16,000 a mile. 'Through tho change the board has increased tho valuation of tho roads from $15,000,000 to prob­ ably $40,000,000. This is a higher valuation than prevails in most of tho states. It was concoded when tho board began its sessions that thoro would bhisome raise in tho valuation of tho roads. Those who follow tho actions of tho board from yoar to yoar be­ lieved that it would bo 6 to 10 por cont. Last yoar tho incroaso was but 2| por cent all around. Croker Making Enomles. London, Aug. 4.—Richard Croker is making arrangements to supply milk in London from his dairy farm. Ho is also trying to got local patron­ age, but is opposod in this city by tho local farmers, who havo boon sup plying the customers- in Wantage and neighborhood. Ho has lost somo of his popularity by coming in com­ petition with local doalors. While ho simply paid money out, thoy wore all polite to him. Now that he is trying to mak« some c f it *h„- ro\cr..e an! many ill-natured remarks aro made about him and his careor. Statistics Of Sheep. Tho fifth annual report of the state board of shoop commissioners for tbo yoat 1901 has just boon issued aud contains statistics and a largo amount of matter exceedingly interesting to sheepmen. In it aro embraced tho governor’s quarantine proclamation for 1902, rules for tbo guidance of deputy sheep inspectors, laws relat­ ing to shoep inspection, directions for preparing dips and a list of grazing areas on railroads for sheep trans­ ported through the state.
