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.

W illow C reek , Feb. 15, 1892.— A great writer has said: “ Archi tecture is frozen music” and it may be added, like music, it soothes, inspires, exal ts and iritales as our natures interprets it. We look around and see upon all sides Nature’s examples; tow ering mountains rent with deep canyons, through which sparkling streams wii.d their way to the val leys below. Their iorce is’ spet t in clothing and making glad the smiling landscape with a constant renewal of life and productiveness. Meadows clothed.with verdure, ail forcible and speaking educators ot the students o f Art. H re we find building material-of every variety, lime, sand and clay, grain better adapted to withstand out climatic changes than any we can import; with undisputableeviden ces of the existence of slate- and fire clay—in fact, all the material now used in buildings. It is true, many o f these resources are as yet undeveloped, yet one can speak trom peronal knowledge that they exist in our midst. The first building o f any impor tance erected in the Willow Greek valley, (9 miles from ttlackfopt station, and 2£ from Durham, fit, the line of the Great: Northerii) are the two government : school buildings, one a common and the othet for a boarding school. The former is an imposing two story structure and contains on the first floor, two school rooms, one sitting room and two sleeping rooms, with the usual adjuncts and con veniences found in all first-class school houses. Upon the second floor are to be found two large sleeping rooms for boys, and one room for general exercise. The bui'ding proper is 28x50 feet with twelve foot ceilings. The boaid- ing school building is also two stories. The dining room, which is on the fir*»t floor, is 30x50 feet, and the kitchen 24x24. On the second floor, are three large sleep ing rooms for girls, and eight smaller rooms for the use of the superintendent, teachers, _ etc. These two buiidinss are built of pine lumber ami, though plain in outline, present a pleasing appear ance. When the undeveloped con dition of the country is taken into consideration, too much credit can not be given to the promoters of the enterprise, and from an archi tectural point of view, Mr. Sene ieur, o f Fort Benton, has left a monument as awiness to his skill and ingenuity. Under the supervision of Supt. Robinson and Miss Cora Ross, school commenced at the new school house on Wednesday, the 14th inst. At present there only 25 boy8 and 15 gils in attendance, but this number is shortly to bp doubled. Two Medicine, Willow and Cut Bank creeks and the Milk River country are being thickly settled, ; the principal settlers being Indi ans and half breeds, whose pale- faced brethern can only look on with amazement at their rapid strides toward self support. Two young pale face “ dear hun ters’^ with anxious faces and pal pitating hearts, are busily engaged in manufacturing pretty symbol- of devotion iii sufficient quantities to stock a New York store. Don’t get discouraged; young gentlemen, the game is worth tbe ammuni tion, and should you fail altogeth er, you will recover your appetite for dried meat and pemmican. Before another year rolls around yoiril wish you had kicked your self across the reservation, before laying bare the secrets of your heart to the “ fair, but: fickle, loved and lost,” Miss ------ . “ Mormon Chris” is a firm believ er in ghosts, but he will not allow them to interfere with, his enjoy ment o f life. The ghost at his favorite lesidence, Birch Creek Lakes, was thought as much of as were it a heirloom; It was digni fied enough to be the shade of a departed cavalier of the reign of Nero. More anon.

[Great Falls Leader.] Said Paris Gibson a few days ago: •'Everything indicates a prosperous sea son .this yearnotwithstandingthe presi dential election. .Tbs Great Northern road is being pushed on rapidly, to the coast and will come very near being completed this year. The Burlington & Missouri will be finished to Great F.i Us this year o r early next Summer.: I think the prospects for the Neiheart and Castle road being built are good, .The Castle road is-needed by us and I believe it will be pushed through. There is some talk of the Great Falls A Canada road build ing a line to Augusta. ' I t will open up a good traffic for this road and th'e passen ger traffic will bring them a good busi ness. Their road will have a good pass enger traffis anyway as soon as their : passenger cars are running regularly. I think a road will be built soon from Great Falls to Cnoteau and that part of the country. The traffic of this section is worth looking after either by the G. F. & C. o r the Great Northern. The prospects for the capital being placed nere are in * my opinion good. Great Falls will be connected soon by railroads with all Eastern Montana, with Missou la and Western Montana, and . it has a good line t o Butte. Besides, the north ern half of the state is settling up fast. There will be a great population north bf the Missouri river in a few yean.\ : The following land patents have been issued to residents of Choteau county: James W.
