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.

Several big excursions will go from this vicinity, and local peoplo will be well ropreseuted at tho big show. Those who go from hero should make every effort to arrive iu time to see the magnificent new free street parade, which takes place in the morning preceding tho opening p<*r formance.

The receipts of raDgers this week has been liberal and the demand not urgent, and the market has ruled extremely dull, and we cannot expect a fayor- able reaction in the trade next week unless receipts prove moderate. The sales of range cattle made on the market this woek are, of course, the best guide'as to tho present con dition of the trade, and among which will be noted sales of several brands at less than $5.00 per cwt., which have previously sold this season at $5.50 to $5.75 per cwt.

There is au old allegorical picture of a girl scared at a grass hopper, but iu the act of heedlessly treading on a snake. This is paralleled by the man who spends a'large sum of money building a cyclone cellar, but neglects to provide his family with a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Chol era an l Diarrhoea Remedy as a safe guard against bowel complaints, whose victims outnumber those of the cyclone a hundred to one.

Six widows bave confessed that they were engaged to marry Benton. He is 65 years old and hiB right hand is cut off; but that was no handicap in his race , for the widows. He won the widows by promising toem diamonds and /-a mansion in Texas. & s b'$ * According to Prof. Baldwin Spencer, formerly of Oxford, now of Melbourne university, the blacks of Central Australia are free from one “ white man’s burden.” He has spent sov oral years making othnological inves tigations among them and one of bis discoveries was that a mother in-law was not allowed to come within a mile of the “ rniamia” (hut) of her married daughter. If she did so tho husbaud was authorized ny the tribal law to uso his club. Tbe profossor expressed admiration of this drastic method of preserving domestic peaeo aud tranquility. Just Like a Woman.
