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.

Johu Coburn of Antelope creek, Fergus county, was shot Tuesday night ot last week by Mrs. Drake and died some hours later from his injuries. Cobiirn had on different occasions insulted the lady by making improper proposals and advances and had been warned to keep off Mr. Drake’s premises. Tuesday night Coburn went to the house and rapped on the door. Mrs. Drake told him he had better go away, and as he came in Ihe door she leveled a riflle at him. He retreated to the outside, forced his way in again and she immedi­ ately fired, the ball taking him in the left side'somewhat below the breast. He died in a tew hours afterward.

V Modern Proverbs. A million dollars won’t make a man happy, but most o f us would like to try it. Policy wins more, friends than honesty. Truth goes a long way, but it doesn’t always get there. Every whine adds a wrinkle. Marrying for money is no worse than marrying for poverty. Knowledge is power, but not to the very young. Earning makes a man happy; - When some people -get outside of themselves they are lost. Contentment stiffens the joints of progress. Rest is a theory, not a condition. —Detroit Free Press. ----------- —4.» --------- - -- A Warning-to Democrats. From the New York World. (Dein.) Are the democrats of the house of representatives mad? Or have they submitted themselves to the control of political imbeciles? Upon no theory of sanity and sense can their recent course be explained. For days in succession, with a majority of 150, they permitted their quorum to be broken by a horse race. As though the faith­ lessness and inattention to duty were not bad enough they reassem­ bled in force only to enter upon a carnival of extravagence. It is time for a halt. The men who are making this record are betraying and in danger of destroying their party. W e tell these heedless hot heads plainly that if this country is to have a succession of billion dollar congresses they should be and they will be republican. The democrats of the union have no use for a congress that will im­ itate and even exceed the ex­ travagance which it was elected to reform. We tell them further that if they ' '*> do not halt and retrace their steps they will be almost certain to throw the next presidency into the waiting laps of the jeering and ex­ ultant republicans. Do they not see, or do they not care, t hat they are passing bills one day to reduce taxes and revenues and passing bills the next day to pile up expenditures, while a re­ publican deficit is already impend- ing? Do they not percieve that the issue o f a deficiency, if raised by a party of economy, will be more effective in the presidential cam­ paign than even the worse-than- war tariff-of the war-in-peace force bill? How can the democrats i:-ise this issue if their house out-squan­ ders the squanderers—if, instead of cutting down the appropriations $100,000,000 as they promised, they increase them $50,000,000—pass­ ing the half-billion high water mark at the first session? If there be notan instant halt and a complete about, face in the house, the Chicago convention. may as well not meet. — --- — --------- 1 ♦ ♦------------------ TENT MEN .RT.LLED, “ Cave in” in tlie Anaconda at Butte. Last Saturday the Anaconda mine was the scene of the most appalling accident resultingin loss of human life greater than in all the long chapter of mining disas­ ters of Butte. It was a cave-in and occurred about 3 o’clock on the SOO-fbot level, fourth floor. Fourteen men were at work on the floor at the time. Of this number ouly four were taken out alive and all of them were badly hurt. The following is a list of the dead and entombed, who are sup­ posed to be dead: William Dy- land, Tim C. Murphy, Quinn Leary, Jerry N. Harrington, Se­ ward Stewart, Dan Sheehan, John Nordstrom, John Smith, John D. Sullivan, Frank Aggaza. John Davis. Injured: Mike Langhren, Janies Breen, P. J. . Murphy, Robert Works. Two dead bodies have thus far been removed, but the rescuers work will not be finished before tomorrow morning, as they are confronted with an entire wall of ore rock and earth, completely filling the level. I t h a s been -announced that England will accept the invitation of the United States to take part in an international conference to discuss the silver question.
