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.

In the presence of a gathering rep­ resenting the elite of Egyptology, the lid of Tutankamen’s great pink •sarcophagus was raised, and a stu­ pendously magnificent mummy case •covered with plates of solid gold, was brought to light. Dramatic Moment! The moment was the most dramatic fn the history 'of dromatic discoveries of Tutankamen’s tomb. The general concensus of opinion of those presetnt was that the mummy form case which indubitably encloses the king’s mor­ tal remains, immesaurably surpasses in splendor and beauty evepa the pre­ vious magnificent treasures the exca­ vators in this tomb have brought to light. The mummy case is perfectly in­ tact. It is described as one of the most wonderful things of its kind that ever has been found. The pharaoh was represented in 'high re- ' lief, covered with sheets of solid gold, more than twice life size, his serene and beautiful face exquisitely incised with glittering eyes of aragonile ajnd •a long upcurved beard of solid gold. Gleaming, Gold Man The flail and septre which the Icing grasps in his crossed hands are of gilded wood N more than three feet long. From the waist - down the broad wiings of protecting goddesses meet across the knees to shieru the pharaoh from danger. When the lid.was raised the mum­ my case was found to be covered with three thicknesses of lineta., browned, with age. This linen, when rolled up disclosed to the bewildered eyes of exca 3 &tQEa^as,..,pne of .thosepres^ ent told to a correspondent of The Associated Press, “a gleaming, golden man.” The mummy case stands in a coffin oh what seems to be a wooden seligh on which doubtless priests dragged in tothe Valley of the Kings.

PAINTED SKIER JAILED A YEAR Kansas City,—Sheiks who spend their time in penciling their eyebrows and roughing their cheeks (they really do it) are “vags” Municipal Judge M. J. Kilroy, in the Kansas City North Side co'urt, so held when Lee Ledford was brought before him and relieved of a bottle of brilliantine for the eyelashes and a jar of almond cream rouge. The judge’s opinion of the conduct of the man is that any male who spends his time in glossing his side­ burns and rouging his cheeks to ac­ quire false masculine pulchritudt is none other than a vagrant, and met­ ed out to Ledford a fine of 5500. This means a year in jail for the “shiek,” who was unable to pay the fine. “No man can have time to use cos­ metics and hold down a job too” Judge Kilroy said in making his de­ cree. Ledford was arrested on the street by Sergeant Nat Aldridge, who no­ ticed the former rolling his sheikish eyes and attempting to open conver­ sation with girls passing by on the sidewalk. Explaining to the judge, Ledford said he had been reading much of how the girls were raving about movie heroes and “sheiks\ who use paint. “I’d been having hard luck with the girls, so I thought I’d try a little doll­ ing up,” Ledford said to' the judge, “and you’d really be surprised how they fall,” he added smilingly. The smile faded a moment later when the “sheik” was adjudged a “vag.” AN APPRECIATION | | T o know that one work is appre­ ciated is one of the joys of life. The Montanah received such a notice this )^8k >ahcT •vv-entre passing.'St on to our readers. Saint Paul, Minn., February 7, 1924. Publisher, Choteau Montanan, Choteau, Montana. Dear Sir: I wish to assure you of my appre­ ciation of the space which you so kindly gave to my address before the Choteau Commercial Club, in your city on January 17th. It was my object to bring these Important facts before the people of your community, and with your val­ ued assistance I was able to accom­ plish this end much better than if my audience had been confined to those actually present at the Beaupre Hotel. By reason of its function in dis­ seminating a general knowledge of world affairs, the press is conceded to be the greatest educational factor in present day affairs, and when a publisher takes a genuine interest in his community, the phblic is able to obtain a broad and comprehensive view of questions, about which they would otherwise be inadequately and Inaccurately informed. Again thanking you, believe me, Respectfully, E. F. FLYNN, Assistant to Vice-President and General Counsel. A charter for the Pendroy National The future of dairying in the Unit- Farm Loan association, recently or­ ganized in that territory, has been received and business under its pro­ visions will be mmediately begun, it was reported by J. M. Ryan, presi­ dent of the Northern National Bank of Great Falls. The association be­ gins operations with something more than a dozen--members. The president of the association is J. E. Lewis, R. S. Estes is vice presi: dent, and J. A. Swanson is secretary- treasurer. The board of directors is composed of J. E. Lewis, R. S. Estest H. H. Collins, I. T. Retnans and F. F. Hoeschen. “Pendroy,” said Mr. Ryan in an­ nouncing the organization of the as­ sociation, “is one of the communities in northern Montana that is making rapid advancement. They are diver­ sifying very rapidly and there is evi­ dence on all sides that the territory is rapidly forging ahead. The form­ ing of this association will mean a good deal toi the farmers there and is Included among the things that lets Pendroy begin the new year with prospects for a season of extensive development.” The second grade received the flag for selling the most hearts.

The eighth grade responded to roll ed States is brought out by W. L. Stockton, president of the Montana State Dairymen’s association. The following is a clipping taken from his recent speech to that association at Bozeman. \The price situation for dairy pro­ ducts during the past year has been satisfactory, fn fact, dairy products are in second place as a cash produc- <erin parts of Montana, òur wonderful grasses and forage crops, our clear, ¿old spring water in abundance, our pure mountain air, and the absence of insect pests to annoy the cows, that we should build up a reputation for putting out an extra high grade product. I do not consider we will be doing the job right until we have creameries associated together, all putting out a high grade product un­ der a trade name and properly adver­ tised under that name. Nature lias done her part well, now it remains for us to complete the work.- “When our product is brought to such a standard the oleo sales will diminish. We note that the oleo sales are less than they were but are yet far greater than they should be. I recently saw a statement that it would require 1,000,000 cows to pro­ duce the butter necessary to replare the oleo now consumed. We fre­ quently hear statements that there is danger of overdoing the dairy busi­ ness. but the fact remains that our con.-umpytion is increasing faster than our production. During the first téh months of the past year we im­ ported nearly seventeen million pounds of butter and about fifty mil­ lion pounds of cheese. We are not self supporting, as yet, when it comes to dairy products and still our per capita consumption is low, much low­ er than mose European countries.

He told the Free Thinker's Society last night that he would ask the fed­ eral authorities o act against the sellers of tea and coffee. Should they fail to do so, he said he would begin an action such as he would have a 'Wall street, right to do against a saloon which the authorities would not raid and close. “I have consulted many of the most eminent legal authorities in the country,” he said, “and I speak with their authority when I tell you that if all manner of alcoholic liquors were served at this dinner the pro­ visions of the eighteenth amendment would not be violated or disrespected j Last Saturday night our girls’ and one whit more than it is violated here (boys’ basket ball teams played at tonight in serving us coffee.” Helena, Feb. 13.—Byron E. Cooney of Butte, commissioner of Silver Bow county and publisher of the Montana American, filed his decloration of in­ tention as candidate for the demo­ cratic nomination for congress from the First, western, district, Wednes­ day. In his statement of principles, Mr. Cooney announces he will seek amendment of the Volstad act to per­ mit light wines and beer, for a bank­ ing law that will protect depositors, stockholders and amateur bankers, an equitable distribution of federal reserve funds, destruction of the per­ nicious tax-exempt securities system, development of the airplane for mail and public service, support for mining industry, separation of “church and state, klansmen and all others,” and promises he will represent Montana and America, and not Europe and Supervisor Myriek returned Satur­ day from an extended trip to Missoula While in Missoula he went ove plans for improvement work on this forest for th£ coming season.

He will go T IS li SESSION The first criminal case on the docket after tht continuation of the bank robbery cases as noted In last week’s Montanan, was the State of Montana vs. Al. Bossier and Guy Newman, charged with, horse steal­ ing. The charge against Newman was dismissed on motion of the county over the latest game reports especi— attorney and Newma was a witness ally within the national forests and for the state agoinst Bossier. It took try to work out a better system of three full days of the court’s time game protection and preservation to settle this matter. The jury de- wherever it is found necessary-. j ciding the defendant was not guilty. Miss Mary Elizabeth Forrest went to Great Falls Monday to take the civil service examination for steno- rapher and typist. Mr. Svenby has finished his logging operations on the Teton for this win­ ter. Eack of the rangers will be in Cho- teau for a couple of days between February 26 and March to £0 over the grazing applications with Super­ visor Myriek and allot the range for the coming season. Considerably more applications have been received this year than in the past which shows a growing demand for national forest range in spite of the unstable condition of the livestock industry. T H E W H ITE . M A N ’S BURDEN Public ownership of public utilities and operation of the same without profit is a beautiful dream, but few people stop to think what it might mean. Cities have their hands full now managing, financing, taxing them­ selves and raising money to handle all that is expected of them under i not Suilty County Attorney Foot, assisted by J. N. Thelen of Great Falls, appeared for the state, while T. H. Pridham took care of the interests of Mr. Bos- ler. The charges of perjury brought against Bossier, Jacobson and Kind from a former trial of the above case was dismissed on motion oi the countv attimey. The first case called on Monday of this week was the State vs. K. B. Cohoe. This was dismissed on mo­ tion of the county attorney. In the cae of the state vs. Dune SteWert of Bynum, charger with has- intoxicating liquor in his place of bus­ iness, the jury found the defendant not guilty. Attorney George Magee appeared for the defendant and the state was represented by Attorney S. R. Foot. Joe Scott was found guilty by a jury and fined $25 for having posses­ sion of intoxicating liquor. Clyde Kraber was the next one to appear before the court on charges of having sold intoxicating liquor to present conditions. They must pave streets, build sew­ ers, maintain parks, cleafi streets, conduct public chools, employ police and fire departments and support hospitals and jails. Add to this the management of street railroads; telephone systems, ¿as plants, electric lighting, child­ ren’s playgrounds, municipal dance halls, public auditoriums, golf links and numerous other things proposed and you double the taxpayer’s burden The payrolls and financing of all public utility enterprises would ex­ haust the credit and taxing power of municipalities. Is not the present system of using both private and public credit, priv­ ate and public enterprise under sound public régulation a better system, and does it not lead to a maximum of community development? If it were all loaded upon the gen­ eral taxpayer, would it not be a stag­ gering burden that would destroy in­ dividual enterprise and initiative?
