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.

ITEMS Of' I JS T E Jt EST Kissing- tiOod-By. \ A kiss he took and a backward look, And her heart grew suddenly lighter; A trifle, you say, to color a day, Yet thedullgray morn seemed brighter, For hearts are such that a tender touch May banish a look of sadness; A small slight thing can make us sing, But a frown will check our gladness. The cheeriest ray. along our way Is the little act of kindness, And thekeenestatiugsome careless thing Tha t wa s cl one in a moment of blind ness We can bravely face life in a home where strife No foothold can discover, And be lovers still* if we orily will, Though youth’s bright days are over. Ah, sharp as swords cut the unkind words That are far beyond recalling When a face lies hid ’nen! li a cofliu-lid, And bitter tears are falling, We fain would .give half the lives we live ¡/To undo our idle scorning. • Then let us not miss the smile and kiss When we part in the light of morning. —San Francisco Call. Sim, River Valley. Butte Miner. Captain Thos. Couch is back from his ranch in Sun River val­ ley, where he has been superin­ tending the harvesting of immense crops of hay and grain. ‘‘The farmers up there say that never within their memory were the prairies looking so green at this lime of the year as they do this season,said the genial granger in his bluff hearty way. “ They have already had one crop of hay off thorn and the grass has grown six inches since. The grain crops are splendid. The farmers will have all the wheat, oats and bar­ ley they want this year and will be able to ship some of them away this year instead of sending to Minneapolis for grain as they have had to do for two years past. All their loose cash has gone there. Now they will get some of it back. The crops are the greatest ever seen there. l?m going up to my ranch on the Missouri river soon, where [expect, to harvest the big­ gest crop of hay ever seen in that section.” The same glad tidings come from every fanning section in the state, so rhat 1891 is like'iv to be a mem- » \ * *• orabie one in the agricultural an­ nals cl Montana. listrayi'd or Lout.

A «oft Side for Treason. The way to find favor in the eyes of modern Democrats is to get con­ verted from Republicanism. Pal mer of Illinois did it; Governor Campbell of Ohio did it; Governor Gray of Indiana did it, and Gov­ ernor Eoies of Iowa did it. ne- gade Republicans easily kick aside the old wheel-horses o f Democracy and take the best things in sight. —Inter-Ocean. »,56 L 106,467 4S,203 348,870 1,811,642 771,682 262 357 122,537 1,044,920 85,575 $5,440,738 Chicago has 6,000 saloons.

Herring and smelt nave been so thick in Dei Norte, Cal., bay this week that a boy walned across at the mouth of the Elk river on top of the fish, barely wet­ ting the tops of his snoes. A curious example of natural “ inarch­ ing” of trees exists in Lawrence county 111. The trunks of two elm trees, stand­ ing about twenty feet apart, have met at quite a distance above the ground whore they blend into a symetrical trunk of large dimensions. The trunk is near­ ly 100 feel high and well developed, and wagons can easily be driven through the great triangle wnich forms the base. According to the Scientific American the earliest Connecticut patentfoundon record was grauted m October, 1737, to Euward Hinman, of Stratford, for the exclusive right and liberty of making molasses from the stalks of Indian corn in Fairfield county, for ten years, which grant ended with these woads: “ Always provided the said Iliuman make it as good molasses, and make it as cheap, as comes from the West Indies. PROTECT OUR BREAD. The machinery of the law has not been put to work too speedily against the fraudulent use of ammonia and alum in Baking Powders. Both health and the pocket of the people are demanding protection. The legislatures of New York, Illinois and Minnesota have taken this matter of adulteration up, and especially that of Baking Powders. It will be in the interest of public health when their sale 'is made a misdemeanor in every State in the UNION, and the penalties of the law are rigidly enforced. There is no article of human food more wickedly adulterated than that of Baking Powder. Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder is the only pure cream of tartar powder having a general sale that is free from ammonia, alum or taint of any kind of impurity. It makes the sweetest and lightest bread, biscuit and cake that are perfectly digestible whether hot or cold. It costs more to manufacture Dr. Price’s than any other baking powder. It is superior to every other known and the « standa“d for forty years. Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder is re­ ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia, Alum, or any other adulterant. In fact, the purity of this ideal powder has never been ques­ tioned. - T H E C H O T E A T T - • BLACKSMITH -A-3ST JD W A G O I T S H O P . HORSESHOEING & MACHINE REPAIRING A SPECIALTY.
