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.

A t present the work is being done in a shaft which is now down 90 feet and will be continued until a depth of 15G foot is reached. At this depth it is expocted the bot tom of the shaft will beat water level. Up to the present time (here has been no pumping necessary, but more aud more, water is corqing in with depth. This shaft is betDg sunk at a point 400 feet from tho mouth of tbe lower tunnel, which is COO feet long. For the first 50 feet the shaft is 4x8 feet, but is now 4x6 feet.

The same thing hap pens on tho battlofiold. Tho entrance of tho bullet into the body iB not felt, and it is not till he fools the blood flowing or a limb paralyzed that tho soldier knows ho is wounded. Persons who have had several limbs broken by a fall do not know yvkich ¡mb is brokon till they try to rise. At tho moment of a fall tbo whole in tellectual activity is increased to au extraordinary degree. There is not a trace of anxiety. Ono considers quick- what will happen.
