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.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1891. NEWSPAPER LAW. A postmaster is required to give official notice (returning a paper does not satisfy the law) when a subscriber does not take his paper from the office, and to state the reasons for its being token, and a neglect to do so makes the post master responsible to the publisher for the payment. Any person who takes a jmper from the post- office, whether directedin his name or in that of another, or whether he has subscribed or not, is responsible for the pay. If a person orders his paper discontinued, ho must pay alt arrearages, or the publisher may continue to send it until payment is made, and collect the whole amount whether it be taken from the office or not. There can be no legal discontinuance until the payment is made. If the subscriber orders his paper to be stop ped at a certain time, and the publisher con tinues to send it, the subscriber is bound to pay for it if he takes it'out of the office. The Jaw proceeds upon the ground that a man must pay for what he uses. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers and periodicals from the postoffice is primu facie evidence of intentional fraud. T he election of McKinley as governor of Ohio, takesplace next Tuesday. T iie Flower of New York will loose much of its attractiveness when the emotion returns come in next Tuesday. T he Columbian thinks that be cause a camel can go a long time without water, is no reason for supposing that Ohio will go demo cratic next Tuesday. T he President has issued an or der turning over the Fort Assina- boine hay and coal reservations to the Interior department for dispo sal under the land laws. T he Anaconda mineo and smel ters at Butte and Anaconda start ed up last Thursday a week and everybody in the greatest mining camps in the world are happy. T here is as much difference to day between Free traders and democrats as there was 3o years ago between a democrat and a man of Grover Cleveland’s stripe I t is no uncommon thing in Helena lor a 110-pound girl to hold up a 200-pound citizen and relieve him of his valuables, and once in a while a heavy weight citizen holds up a girl, but not often. A citizen s meeting will be held to-morrow afternoon and a com mittee appointed to fake charge of and inaugurate a way to beauti fy and improve the appearances of the town. A paper has been circulated and many have sub scribed money to be expended for that purpose. This is a good move and one that should meet the hearty co-operation and support of all. W hat is the matter with Cho teau having a flouring mill? Cer tainly our people can command the means. We also, have the water power at hand, and it has long been demonstrated that wheat can , be profitably grown here. Taking these things into consideration together with the fact that every pound of flour— and there are hundreds of tons of it used heie--is brought into the country from other sections, we see no reason why it would not be a profitable investment within it self. Even though it does not prove a bonanza. to its owners, it would certainly pay its way and in doing so would keep thousands of dollars in the community which now goes to the Minneapolis and Dakota miller. Organize, gentle men, and do something for your selves and country! ~~ - - _ _ ___ 1 % SAME HERE, TOO, PACE. Some literary gentlemen o f Mis soula are exercised over the mat ter of this county’s indebtedness. The simple fact is that Missoula county’s treasury has been deple ted by mileage bills. The sheriff’s office alone, in its business in the Flathead country, has more mile age money than is required to pay ail expenses of some Montana counties, and the mileage racket is worked to the extreme limit by the end of the office that travels in this vicinity.—Columbian. Montana .-Migar Beets. The Helena Board of Trade has interested itself in the sugar beet industry, and last week shipped two sacks of beets to the Utah sugar works to be sampled for their sugar producing qualities. The manager of the Utah refinery will poralize these samples free of charge. The result will be looked for with interest as upon it may depend one of Montana’s varied industries. There were 18 sam ples in the lot, grown in Lewis and Clark, Jefferson, Gallatin, Missoula, Dawson, Meagher and Custer counties. A .New Metal. [Black Hills Tribune.] “ George A. Clark, an experi enced iron worker, of Boston, claims to have discovered an ore in the Rocky Mountains which he believes is new to the. world. He says: ‘I took specimens of the ore to assayersin Cincinnati, Chicago, and Boston and not one halt of them could tell me the name of the mineral. Then I began here a series o f experiments myself, mixing it with molten iron, and I found that only a small quantity was necessary to increase the flu idity of the metal. It rendered iron ductile and in low grades ac ted as a purifier. The product of alloy was a homogenious metal of very fine pores, capable of high er finish than before. The slag expelled by its use contained no metal and was very light. In the new treatment of iron, with only one per cent, of the new ore, the former’s tensile strength was in creased from 10 to 25 per cent. Using half of one per cent, of this ore in a mixture with copper, I found that it gave the metal great er increase---from 60 to 100 per cent.---of tensile strength. Tfie resulting, too, is capable of a high polish. In a word, I found that the ore increased the tensile strength and fluidity under heat of both these metals and makes them both of finer grain. It is noncorosive.’ The ore looks like a fine sandstone, save that it is black, and many pieces of it pre sented highly polished surfaces as smooth as a bit of glass. Mr. Clarke refuses to state the loca tion of the field, which he states, was exposed over the face of an acre, as he is trying to get hold of it first.’ If Mr. Clark will come to Clio teau we will show him a thousand acres covered by his new piet.al and several acres which he can control by simply recording and developing a mining claim or so. As for the rest of it there are more than a hundred claims al ready entered and filed on. Come on Mr. Clark and you may get possession of a claim along with the rest o f us. + ■ - ■ ■■ No Ephs nor Cays. The following, dipt from the Rocky Mountain Cyclone, shows how completely the English lan guage is adapied for sudden and unforseen emergencies: “ We begin the publication of the Roccay Mountain Cyclone with some phew diphphiculties. The type phounders phrom whom we bought our outphit phor tins printing ophphice phailed to sup ply us with any ephs or cays, and it will be phour or phive weex be- phore wejcan get any. The mis take was not phoundout till a day or two ago. We have ordered the missing letters, and will have to get along without them till they come. We don’t iique the loox ov this variety ov spelling any belter than our readers, but mistaques will happen in the best regulated phannlies and iph the phs, cays , xs and qs hold out, we shall ceep (sound the c hard) the Cy clone whirling, aphter a phashion . till the sorts arrive. It is no joke to us— it is a serious aphphair.” A Great Newspaper. The H e l e n a W e e k l y I nd epen d e n t , as enlarged and impioved by the addition of new features, is certainly one of the model week lies of the country. The youths’ department alone makes it inval uable in every household where there are children. Every num ber consists of twelve pages of seven columns each, an amount j of reading matter furnished by I few newspapers in the country - The publishers offer a fine premi um to the boys and girls who se cure subscribers in a free ticket to the World’s Fair. The subscription price is only $2 a year, for which sum the pa per will be sent to January 1st, 1893. AT THE HOTELS. VALLEY HOTEL. W. S. Barrett, G. W. Arnold, Henry Rad cliff, F. Fails, Geo. 1.

Everyone knows how subtle, penetrating and permanent is the rich perfume o f attar of roses, The larger part of the world’s supply of this delicious scent is made in Persia, where there are many hundreds of acres devoted to the cultivation of roses for this pur p l e . At certain seasons of the year long caravans of donkeys, la den with the attar, and under guard of soldiers to protect the rich booty from attack by robbers, journey from Central Persia to the little port of Bushire, whence it is exported to Bombay. Cther donkey trains similarly escorted proceed to ports on the Caspian sea, whence the attar is conveyed to Turkey' and Russia, which, af ter Hindostán, are the largest con sumers of the costly luxury. When the wind is in the right direction the approach of one of these cara vans is announced by the scent long before it can be seen, and the line of its progress can be traced by the odor for days after it has passed by.

It would take all the Lancashire (England) cotton factories 400 years to spin a thread long enough to reach the nearest star at the present rate of production, of about 155,000,000 miles per day.
