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.

Miller Washington, Oct. 29.—President Roosevelt today issued his procla­ mation designating Thursday, Nov. 27, as a day of thanksgiving. The proclamation is as follows: “ According to the yearly custom of our people, it falls upon the president at this season of the year to appoint a day of featival.and thanksgiving to God. Over a century and a quarter has passed since this country took its place among the nations of the earth, and during that time we have had on the whole more to be thankful for •»w. than has fallen to the lot of any other people. Generation after generation has grown to manhood and passed away. Each has had to bear its peculiar burdens, each to face its special crisis and oach has known years of grim trial, when the country was menaeed by malice, domestic or foreign, when the hand of tho Lord was heavily upon it in drouth or flood or pestilence, when in bodily distress and anguish of soul it paid the penalty of folly and a froward heart. Nevertheless, decade by de­ cade, we have struggled onward and upward. We now abundantly enjoy material wellbeing, and under the favor of the Most High we are striv­ ing earnestly to achieve moral and spiritual uplifting. This year that haa just closed haB been one of peace and of overflowing plenty. Rarely has any people enjoyed greater pros­ perity than-we are now enjoying. For this we render heartfelt and solemn thanks to the giver of good and we seek to praise him not by words only, but by deeds, by the way in which we do our duty to ourselves and to eur fellowmen. “ Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt, President of tho United States, do hereby designate as a day of general thanksgiving, Thursday, the 27th of the coming November, and do recommend that throughout the land the people cease from their ordinary occupations and in their several homes and places of worship render thanks unto Almighty God for the manifold blessings of the past year. “In witness whereof I have here­ unto set my hand and caused tho seal of the United Statoa to be affixed. “ Done at the city of Washington, the 29th day of October, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and two, and of the independence of the United States the oue hundred and twenty seventh. “ T herdore R oosevelt .

Citing certain occasions of cruelty, Mrs. Parry alleges that during the month of February, 1902, when tbe thermometer was hovering about tho point of zero, ho drove her and her child out of tho house and refusod to allow them to return for a long time, la July, 1901. while residing at Pon­ dera, she alleges that ho Peat her and bruised her bauds causing great pain. Oa Labor day, of tbo present year, sho complains that her husband came home in a beastly state of intoxica­ tion, and in the middle of the night boat and bruised her, and caused such commotion by yelling that he terrorized her by loud and abusiye languogo, calling her vile names and applyiug such epithets to her that tho whole neighborhood was aroused. Mrs. Parry further allegos that her husband is brutal iu his instincts, and an untit person, by reason thereof and his, to have tho cure and custody of jtheir daughter. Tho complaint calls tho attention of tho court to tho fact that the de­ fendant earus $3 per day when ho works, and that he is able to earn that amount every day, wore it not for his intomperato habits. Tho plaintiff asks for $50 por month ali­ mony, $100 for attorney fees, and the custody of her daughter.—Tribune. SCHOOL REPORT. WANTED.

On account of ¡«temperance, fail- uie to provide and gross cruelty on on the part of her husband, Susan A Parry has commenced an action for divorce from Thomas A, Parry. In har complaint Mrs. Parry sets forth that on April 8, 1891, she was united in matrimony to the man who is now her husband, and that as tho issue o f tho marriage there is now one child, Sadie, who is now ten years of age. ' The complaint alleges that for tbe past year her husband has been a confirmed and habitual drunkard, working only part of tho time, and spending a large part of his earnings for liquor, and that for his inordinate love for intoxicants, has not, for more than 12 months, contributed to the upport of the plaintiff and her child, and that during that time he has not furnished her with more than a very small portion o f the things absolutely necessary to her existence. Mrs. parry ayers that for five years her husband has been guilty of ex­ treme cyqelty toward her, and the on aeyeral oocasiona he has beaten, bruised and choked her, and called her all kinds of vile names; that be has wrongfully aceused her of all kinds of crimes, and has caused her gresit physical and mental anguish. E. A. Nixon, who has been iu charge of one of tho parties of the United States geological survey that bus been working in Choteau county, along the lino of tho proposed St. Mary’s canal, is in the city. He states that the survey work j : use reason iu prac­ tically completed. Tho field notes and reports of tho sevoral crops will bo sent to Washington and during the wiutor thoy will bo compiled and it will be determined by tho depart mont whether or not tho proposed construction of tho canal is fonuible. Mr. Nixon says ho is satisfied that the decision will bo favorable to con struction. While the route may ¡vary slightly from tho originally suryoyed, yot it has been found that tbe canal may bo built at less than tho orig­ inally estimated oxpense, and tho sur voys have shown tho practicability of construction of a splendid storage system. Mr. Nixon is in receipt of a report from the commissioners of tho gon- oral land office, showing that, for tho last ficial year, the receipts from tbo disposition of public lands in the states in which irrigation works are to be constructed had increased so greatly that the fund for irrigation purposes amounted, at the end of tho fiscal year, to $9,500,000. Tho com miesioner estimates that the funds will amount to $15,000,000 by next July, and that it will bo nearly §20,- 000,000 before the construction of any canals is ordered.—Tribune.
