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, FEBRUARY 26, 1892. NEWSPAPER LAW. A postmaster is roquired to give official notice (returning a paper woe» nut satisfy ttie law) when a subscriber does not, take hi* paper from the office, and to state the reason* for ts being taken, and a neglect to do t-o makes the pos - master responsible to the publisher for the payment. Any person who takes a paper from the post- office, whether directed in his name or in that of another, or win ther he has subscribed or not, is responsible for the pay. If a person ordets liis paper discontinued, he must pay all arrearages, or the publisher may oontinue to send ii until payment is made, and eoliect the whole amount wnether it be taken from the office or not. There can be no legal discontinuance until the payineut 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 boaud 10 pay for it if he takes it out of the office. The law proceeds npon the around that a man must pay for what he uses. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers and periodicals from the poatoflice is pnma facie evidence of intentional fraud. T he Great Falls Leader in en deavoring to make “ unwarranted reflections” of what we said in our last issue concerning the wants of Great Falls, has very consider ably toned down and rubbed oif some o f the irritating excrescences which, have been present on the trunk of the giant near whose shade we of the ranges sometimes stray. If the Leader can induce the Townsite company and the Board of Trade to incorporate into tlieir by-laws the same spirit as that set forth in its article, and have them lived up to, peace and harmony will reign supreme. Live and let live is what we want, and when that principle shall be the rule, we will be with you and you with us. _______________ T he time for Choteau to assert herself has arrived. This thing of standing in. with every scheme that comes along and signing peti tions for out side parties on the promise that they will aid us in ours, is about played out, parlicu- when we are asked to do that which compromises us with our neighbors. It will take some tall hurstleing on the part of the Great Falls Townsite Co. to pay up the indebtedness which they have have already contracted. Our bill of promises against th%m has grown so large and payment de ferred so long, that our hearts are sore. In view of this our people have decided to refuse further credit, and until some o f tiie prom ises of i he past have born fruit, no new ones need be offered. As a preventative o f the grippe, put powdered snlpher in your stockings, so as to be constantly walking on sulpher. This is said to be a sure preventative and may be. a cure. Try it. T he Great Falls Tribune, com menting on Senator Sherman’s bill providing for the return o f the flags captured from Mexico during our war with that country some forty odd years ago, cominends Mr! Sherman for his courtesy and adds: “ This preservation of flags and other tokens of victory over a neighboring nation is not in harmony with the civil ization of the age and should be discon tinued. Mr. Sherman’s bill is in keeping with this sentiment. By the way why can’t Mr. Sherman open hi* heart a lit tle wider and introduce a bill providing for the return of all confederate flags now iu possession of the government?” For the simple leason, oil, you unreconstructed! that those flags were not taken from a nation, nor a recognized government, .but from our misguided biothers who, like Eve, listend to the tempter— to such as you, who now stand up and say: “ Those are the flags of our nation—the flags of the people of the Confederate States o f Amer ica—and out of the courtesy due between nations they should be returned to us.” Probably when the editor of the Tribune succeeds in establishing such a nation, the courtsey which he lacks when he asks for the flags, will be extend ed it, but at this present writing there is no Southern Oo’ifedreacy to which those tokens of victorv could be returned. As it is, those flags are tokens of victory in the cause of freedom and the preser vation of the Union, not only of the States, but of her people, while on the other hand they could at best be but the emblem of slavery and defeat—of a lost cause, the only good ot which was its failure to succeed. A true triend will not attempt to compromise neighbors, not even when by so doing he could secure the whole eailhand have a land office thrown in. S l O C K H u L D E l t S M R B I I N G .

The idea of educating people in their homes, instead of confining the process within the walls of a college, is just be ginning to make itself known and felt. The great movement termed “ Univer sity Extension” is simpley a movement to bring some of the advantages of the higher schools into the homes of the people, that advantage may be taken of the very expensive machinery of higher education by those who are uuable to leave home or to raise the money re- buired. The university ex tension course is largely the outgrowth of Chautauqua influences and the influence of the corre spondence schools of languages, et<*, which have been established for some years. An incorporated law school has been established at Detroit, Mich., under the name of the SpragueCorrespondence School of law—so named from its origin ator. The School has been in operation fifteen months and is doing great service to the m my men and women thiough- out the country who are desirous of ob taining a liberal education in the law, but who are not able to attend the law colleges.
