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.

REPAIRING NEATLY DONE. j HE HAD NOTICED WOMAN’S WORK. I ____ And That is The Reason He is a Bach­ elor. River Tress. We have just received a copy of ‘•Woman’s Work,” from Athens, and a request that we notice the same. We have noticed ‘’Woman’s Work.” We noticed “woman’s work” when but a child, and we can’t say we were tavorably im pressed by it. We noticed its ag­ gressiveness, and the memories of the way we tried to squirm from under a certain piece of leather belting she was working will ever hmj; to us and cluster around our thoughts as firmly as the in terest. around a promissory note So it has ever been through life. We noticed it in the school room, where woman read us many a tedi ous essay on “ he sanctity of the Sunday School,” and “the good boy’s reward,” when our mind was hungering for ‘‘Deadwood Dick’s Double,”or‘*Burglary Made Easy ” We noticed her work when she used to give us a subject seven sizes too big for our little mind, and then made us stand on one foot for an hour with a clothes pin On our nose,-if welailed to analyze i it with all the eloquence atid ratiocination of a Webster or an Ingersoll. And then we noticed woman’s work as we were blooming into lovely manhood. We noticed how she worked us for the dance, the skating rink and the picnic. We noticed how she workiedus in­ to loving madness and bankrupt­ cy at the same stroke. And the scenes shifted, and we saw her drop her financial wreck and go to work some previously unworked fellow who had more money than ourselves. Yes, dear publishers, we have noticed woman’s work and that is the ieasou we are a bachelor. K lu g Solom on’s M ines. On the identical spot where King Solomon procured “gold dust, peacocks and monkeys,” a syndicate with $5,000,000 capital stock issued and a ten-stamp mill erected, has just pounded out $55. 000. Mount Ophir, of scriptural renown; is close by. The old rocks, which were too low grade for King Solomon’s reduction pro­ cesses, are being ground up and fhey average half an ounce to the ton. This gold field of Solomon’s, which has been idle all these cen­ turies till now, is on the Malay peninsula. The. people who; have gone in to develop it have had to cut seven miles of a road through the jungle and to clear sixty miles of river. They are just beginning to realize on their investment. The company with the big capital has a concession on twenty square miles of a gold field. The forma­ tion ’•*8 of black slate. A shaft sunk 100 feet on the lode has uncovered enough ore to keep the mill going a year. The ore will yield two oun­ ces to thè ton. In one place on the concession there is a hill 250 feet high and' half a mile long. The company has tunneled into this hill about half way from the bottom and found ore ranging from seven pennyweights to seven ounces of gold. The reef varies in with from two t»;%nine feet. Even the loose rocks scattered about on the hillside yield half an ounce of gold to the ton. The su perintendent said to the American consul recently; “I did not think I here was anything of this kind so extensive in the world. Wherever you try you find gold.” Kaub is the modern name of tire ancient El Dorado. .
