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.

JENJiY LIND AN I> PAYNE. How th« ‘•ing'er Pai<l a . Tribute to the Author of Home 8 weei. H o m e . [New England Magazine.] No American poet ever received a more enviable compliment than one paid to John Howard Payne by Jenny Lind on his last visit to his rative land. It was in the great National hall in the city of Washington, where the most, dis­ tinguished audience that had ever been seen in the-capital of the re public was assembled. Thematelr- lesS singer entranced the vast throng with her most exquisite melodies. “Casta Diva.,” the “ Flute Song,” the “ Bird Song,” and the “ Greeting to America.” But ihe great feature of the oc casion seemed to be an act of in spiration. The singer suddenly turned her face toward that part of the auditorium where John Howard Payne was sitting, and sang “ Home Sweet Heme” with such pathos and power that a whirlwind of excitement and en thusiam swept ihrough the vas- audience. Webster himself lost all self control, and one might readily imagine that Payne thril­ led with rapture at this unexpect­ ed and magnificent rendition of his own immortal lyric.

A naked telephone wire was de­ tached by some street arabs'Satur day so that it hung from a support trailing over a certain wire from an electric light plant, says a Pan­ ama special. A police officer com menced to haul it in. The act of drawing caused it to cut through the rubber insulator of the elec­ tric light wire. The officer re­ ceived a shock which rendered him unconscious. A great crowd gathered and before the electric light company could be notified to shut off the current, a horse hitched to a car was driven over the wire and killed. The cabman in attempting to extricate his horse from the harness, thinking he had simply fallen, was struck on the forehead by the swinging ¡¡wire, which bit through the skull JtfibQSt to the ears and there re mained. The electric fluid lifer ally filled the man’s head and in a moment his brain and eyes had been completely incinerated. The flesh and skin smoked and sizzled until they were also reduced al­ most to ashes. All this time sparks piiyed about the man's head in an awful, shower. Brazilian Coffee. Advices from Brazil by the bu­ reau of the American Republics show that the amount of coiRe re ceived at the port of Rio de Ja- nerio for two months of t he pres enfc fiscal year was 842,054 bags. Tlje total shipments during the same period were 742,456 bags, of which 496,000 bags went to thè United States. During the same period there was received at San­ tos 323,931 bags.

The building now towers to its full height of nineieen stories, 278 feet from ground to coping. It is the high­ est structure of its kind in the world. The interior finishing will now be pushed. Colonel Shelby Eli Dillard, edi­ tor of that famous paper, the-Red Lodge Picket, was in town on business connected with the sale of his paper to the tepublicans of his town. Some one was coming in there to start an opposition democratic sheet, and so Mr. Dil­ lard decided to retire. He says the Picket will be used in the in­ terest of Col. W. F. Meyer, who will run for Congress next year, and Mr. Dillard believes the Col­ onel can beat the field.— Journal. Military Report.

A Pure Cream Tartar Powder ROYAL, . Contains Ammonia, TAYLOR’S ONE SPOON. Contains Alum and Ammonia. Dr. Price gives larger and fuller cans than those of any other Baking Powder manufacturer. Above cut represents the comparative size of one pound can each ‘ ‘Dr.'Price’s,” Royal” and “ Taylor's One Spoon.” These cans were set side by side, then photographed down in exact proportions to admit the plate in this space. Ask your grocer to set a one pound can of any other brand alongside 1 lb. Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder, and observe the difference, as illustrated above. Adulterated powders may usually be detected by their heavier bulk, as shown by the small cans, and these scantily filled, often containing a circular to help fill out the cans. It is a singular fact that many of the ammonia and alum baking powders are advertised as “ Absolutely Pure,” All officia. examinations prove that it would be safe to reject all powders labeled absolutely pure. \ The economy in using Dr. Price’s Cream Baking Powder does not consist alone in the fact that much larger and fuller cans are given, but Dr. Price’s is a stronger, purer and more wholesome bak­ ing powder than any other known. Does better work, and goes farther, hence more economical in every way. What woman would use an ammonia or alum baking powder if she knew it ? Such powders not only undermine-the health, but ammonia gives to the complexion a sallow and blotched appearance. Dr. Price’s Cream Baking P x v ' _• is reported by all authorities as free from arnmer^, ,:;j. lime, cr -v :v y other adulterant. The purity of this ideal powder lias never been questioned. Refuse all Substitutes, they may Conceal Ammonia or Alum.
