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.

As a matter of fact the people of Cho­ teau as a xvhole are not in the least responsible for the defeat of the proposed new county. One or two individuals living here might have advised their friends at both Brady and Collins to have their territory withdrawn, but no money was put up to assist them in any xva.y to prepare their with­ drawl petitions, and no one from here promised the Brady Whet­ stone the county printing contract of Teton county for his “ mflooen- ce” in opposition tu Fondera. In y ars past, as a matter of fact, the people of Choteau have gone out of their way to be friendly with the people of Conrad, not­ withstanding the fact that Conrad, or at least a number of its citi­ zens, have prided themselves on their unfriendly attitude toward us. If, because of the outcome of the Pondera county proposition, Conrad feels like lighting Choteau openly, all well and good. We feel that Choteau is capable ot looking out for its own interests, and we have the reputation of being fairly good lighters oiir- \elves over in this good old town. So if Conrad “ feels for tight” let her get ready. We're ready at any time to retaliate. ‘'Lay on McDutf, and damned t be he,” etc. Mesdames Holland, McMahan and Sin.vthe will entertain the La­ dies Industrial Society at the luirch parlors on Wednesday', June 3rd The Ladies Industrial Society will have a food sale at the Cho­ teau Mercantile on Saturday, May 30th.

As this xvas u special meeting, called for the purpose of taking action on the uropo.sed nexv county of Pondera (and no other business could be legallv brought before it) it will be necessary for tin* board to rati­ fy this notion at their next regular meeting which xxill be held next week, before Mr. Jones becomes the regular chairman.
