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.

Dr. Niles and wife of Great Falls, who started out from that city a couple of weeks ago for a hunting trip m the mountains west of here, have returned to their home. On account of the heavy snow of last week they were unable to get any farther than Jones’ camp on the Teton, and after being snowed in there for several days gave up their trip but may try it again as soon as the weather gets better. During the past week this sec tion of Montana has been visited with a severe snow storm, resem bling in a measure the heavv “ October storm” of 1899. Re ports from the country are to the effect that fully two feet of snow fell; which has been badly drifted in places. Our new railroad was out of commission for a few days, but the track is again open for travel, two work trains arriving here yesterday evening. Reports are to the effect that several bands of sheep have been badly scattered by the storm, hut there have been no losses and. as far as reported the lives of no sheepherders have been sacrificed. The snow which is disappearing rapidly, will prove a blessing in disguise, as it is sinking into the ground as it is being melted by the present warm weather, thus insuring plenty of moisture for next year’s crops. - »1st \ **‘ *H',-if * v ' '\“ --------- - -- --------- - ----------~ -- . .. . . - THE CASH .STOREifWMÉ:tÌ W I N T E R G O O D S CONSISTING OF % M ACK IN AW S , M A C K I N A W PAN T S , SWEATERS, WOOL SHIRTS, UNDERWEAR, WOOL HOSE, BLAN KETS, QUILTS, OVERSHOES, SH E E P LIN E D CO A T S , B L A N K E T LIN ED COATS, B L A N K E T LIN E D PAN T S , CAPS, ETC.
