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.

GLASGOW JURIST WILL PRESIDE A J TRIAL OF POPULAR-WOLF ‘ POINT ELECTION CASE Defendants in the Popular-Wolf Point county seat controversy have filed an affidavit disqualifying Judge Greene of Choteau from presiding at the trial of the case, which is set for February 1 . Judge Comer has called in Judge Borton of Glasgow to preside in Judge Greene’s place. Judge Greent sat at the hearing on the temporary injunction issued re­ straining Wolf Point supporters from removing the county offices and rec­ ords to that city, and at the conclu­ sion of the hearing continued the writ because he thought it was good busi­ ness judgment to have Poplar to continue as the co'unty seat until the the issues of tire election contest had been tried. Counsel for Wolf Point appealed to the supreme court from his decision. It is considered doubtful that the trial will be called on the schedule day because of the fact that Judge Borton will be'occupied in the. hear­ ing of cases at Plentywood. A further development in the coun­ ty seat case is a $50,000 libel suit filed here by Jensen, Lundeen, Kelly and others against the Wolf Point Herald. The campaign period ajid the days following the election were featured by bitter newspaper contro­ versies and the libel suit is based on articles which appeared in connection with the county seat case. *î* . u--lSusie lov©rs of Chóteau will be given a }||are treat on Tuesday,February 6th, when *a company of GreatsFajjs artists will give a concért at the pùblìtitischool auditorium.

JOSEPH OSLER MRS. RYRON CORSON. a lot of trouble for his \Pa” and sets a whole town “by the ears” Jackie Coogan is said to give an even more delightful and amusing impersonation than that which brought him fame and fortune in Chaplin’s “The Kid.” “Peck’s Bad Boy” is an adaptation of the works of the late Governor George Peck. The subtitles were written by that inimitable humorist, Irvin S. Cobb. Appearing in support of Jackie in this latest photoplay is an excellent cast which includes Doris May, Wheeler Oakman, James Corrigan, Lillian Leighton and Baby Gloria Woods. The production was recently given its Broadway premier at the Strand Theatre in New York, where is was a sensational success. Critics were unanimous in their praise of the six- year-old star and his first independent production for release by Associated First National. SEANONAL DULLNESS HAS CHARACTERIZED TH E WOOL MARKETS As was expected, seasonal dullness has characterized the wool markets during the last two’m onths A gen­ eral disposition on the pact of the mills to carry stocks of raw wool into their annual inventories accounts in a large measure for this dullness. The goods market lias been satisfact­ ory, and merchants and manufactur­ ers are anticipating their future re­ quirements in much greater degree MEETINGS TO DISCUSS CORN GROWING TO BE HELD SOON Meetings 'for the purpose of dis­ cussing com growing in Teton county will be held in four commuities in tills county February 26th and 27th. -Tolly Hartwick, who has been one of. the most successful corn breeders and growers in eastern Montana, has been secured to address these meet­ ings.

Mrs. Gray immigrated to Montana in 1889, locating at Sun River Crossing. From here she moved to Choteau in 1S89, where she has since resided. Sh Is survived by five sons and two daughters: James, Millet, Tom, Wal­ ter and Gabe Gras’, and Mrs. Chris­ tine Salois and Justine Black. • Inter­ ment was made Wednesday at the South Fork of the Teton Canyon. L The Teton girls were defeated by the Augusta girls last Friday night. ,The Teton boys were victorious over the St. Mary’s basket ball team last Saturday when we won with a score 26-8. Fort Benton plays here Friday night, February 9. The Glee Club began practice on the Operetta, \Cherry Blossom,” Mon- Monday afternoon the body of Mrs. Elizabeth Osier was found seated in a chair at her home in the southern part of the city. She was last seen Sunday and was apparently in good health. Circumstances pointed to the fact that the deceased had started to prepare for the day as she was nearly dressed when she was presumedly seized by heart failure. Elizabeth Osier was born in Metau, Russia, eighty-two years ago and came to the American continent with her husband and son, Joe, and niece, Mrs. Byron Corson, in 1890, where they resided at Lethbridge, Canada, for over a year. For the past thirty three years she has made her home in Choteau, with the exception of a few years spent in Portland and Astoria, Oregon, and three trips to her former home in Germany. Mrs. Osier was an ardent church worker and a member of the Ladies’ Guild. Strength and sweetness of character were blended in her—a lady in every sense of the word—a Christian of holy and humble devo­ tion and a glad and generous minister of hospitality. She was withal a motherly helper of unfailing'kindness and the above facts and many more cause her to be warmly and greatly loved by all who knew her. She is survived by one son, Joe, now living in Helena, and who arrived In Choteau Tuesday in response to a message announcing the death of his mother. Mrs. Byron Corson, who came to Ajnerica with her when but fourteen years of age, is a niece. Funeral services were held from the M. E. Church at 2:00 p. m. Thursday, with Rev. Harry T. Stong officiating, a request asked for some time ago. Burial was made In the Choteau cemetery. She had already mapped out her future, and ever kept before her mental vision these words: \Be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown, of life.”—Rev. 2 : 10 . LS WAR 1 REPRESENTATIVES FROM WEST­ ERN COUNTIES PROPOSE MEASURE Genuine warfare will be declared on all rodents believed to be carriers of the germ causing spotted fever, if a bill introduced in the house by Taw- ney. Strange, Pope, BrandJord, Nel­ son and Elliott, representatives from Ravalli and Missoula counties, be­ comes a law. Under the bill, boards of county commissioners may create control districts and appropriate money to be used in fighting the rodents. The proposed law provides that the “board of county commissioners of any county of this state, when they are within the limits of such .co'unty any lawfully established control dis­ tricts of the state board of entomol­ ogy for the control of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, are hereby authorized and empowered, upon the request of said state board of entomology or its duly authorized representative in such county, to appoint any suitable person or persons, whose duty it shall be to shoot, poison, trap or to otherwise catch or kill rodents within the lim­ its of such control districts, and any person so appointed is hereby em­ powered and directed to enter upon any farm, railroad right of way, grounds or premises infested with rodents and located within the limits of shell control districts, and to shoot poison, trap or to otherwise catch or kill said rodents. It is further pro­ vided that any person so appointed shall work under the direction of the state board of entomology or its duly authorized representative in any county concerned. \The board of county commission­ ers in ,any .county in which there are any such control districts may create a “Rocky Mountain spotted- fever control fund.” PUBLIC SCHOOL L There has been a higher percentage of absence this mouth than any other time during the year on account of an epidemic of colds going around. Mrs. Vandewark is in the hospital as a result of her sickness. Tuesday Mr. Rush showed the school some pictures of animals and told us about them. Mr. Clarkson lent the school his eferopticon ma­ chine and Mr. Stong operated it. BANQUET Come.’ dome!
