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.

The Mormons have a large saw mill on the creek just on the Ca nadian side of the line which cuts the lumber for the settlers of that section using American timber exclusively. Mr. Kipp says that Agent Coke has investigated the matter and will report to the au thorities at Washington. These depredations have been going on ever since the Mormons first settled on Lees’ Creek, and great quantities of valuable timber have been removed from the public do main by these people. Only Three Big Circuses There are only three of the circuses of the first class traveling on the road today. That is, there are only three circuses carrying three rings in which the perform ance is given. These circuses are the Barnum and Bailey, The Ring- ling and the Yankee Robinson cir cus. All of these shows have three rings, two elevated stages and the usual hippodrome track where the races are held. The Robinson circus gives its -Wild West performance in the hippo drome track. The other two shows do not carry the Wild West annex, but gives spectacular per formance in addition to the cir cus. The Sioux Falls Argus-Leader, speaking of the Robinson circus, states that the performance is on a par with either the Barnum or Ringling circus and states em phatically that the present Yan- Kee Robinson circus will excell the Barnum show within a few years. : v 'j f 'M - i '- ! - - .- » - \ i f ^ - < » & t ■SSW X - v:: Yy C O M P A R E O U R R E G U L A R H A R D W A R E P R I C E S W ITH A N Y O T H E R STO R E IN TE T O N C O U N T Y N o 1 galvanized tubs $ .9 0 N o 2 galvanized tubs N o 3 galvanized tubs 1.00 1.10 . 1 0 White Lead, lb Pure boiled oil, 5-gallon can 4 . 5 0 1 gal. galvanized oil cans .2 5 2 gal. galvanized > oil cans $ .3 5 5 gal. galvanized oil cans .6 0 Hay forks, best 1 .0 0 Shovels, best 1 .0 0 S teel rim locks .5 0 A c m e kalsomine .5 0 Hickory horse collars 5 . 0 0 I F P R I C E A N D Q U A L I T Y IS A N Y O B J E C T W E A R E S U R E TO G E T YOU R B U S IN E S S A C O M P L E T E L I N E O F TOOLS, CU T LERY, P A I N T , H A R N E S S , E T C .
