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.

T here is more talk, fuss and feathers about that little Box Elder tree than there ever was about Washington’s favorite cher ry tree, and no wonder. The little cherry tree was thoughtlessly de molished by a noble boy who who couldn’t tell a lie. The Box Elder precinct was deliberately thrown out to the Choteau coyotes by designing, full grown men, who could, but wouldn’t,tell ihe truth— whoimaginethat it is more praise worthy to engage in disreputable 'trickery-than it is to live straigl t forward, honest and upright lives. ; Some men are born mean, others achieve meanness, while a few have boodlS and meanness thrust upon them.— Bozeman Courier. “T he P eople ” says: Hon. A. F. Bray, the popular populist, will place the name of Mr. Samuel M u lville in nomination for United States senator from Montana. I f there is no<possibility of M u lville’s election Mr. Bray and the other populist members w ill support a candidate who is both a radical free silver man and a stanch pro tectioniat.

The re mains were taken to Helena for interment. The funeral services took place from the Merchants Hotel on last Sunday afternoon. T he News—in the event of tl e populist’s holding the balance of poWer in the legislature—nomin ates Miss Ella L. Knowles as their candidate for United Stales sena tor. In point'of ability— she would be head and shoulders above half of the members now in the yankee house of lords.— Great Falls Hews. CAUSE OF DEMOCRATIC VICTORY. - ,-Thg Helena Independent|;^rob;- ably gites the best solution ’yet advènced of the eause which/ re sulted so 'disastrously to,.: the ■.re publicans last November. Though speaking of the French, the Ihde . pendent’s remarks are as applica- • ble to the action of the American people- at the last -election .al though especially made of them: An interesting theory has been ad vanced concerning the causes of the threatening disturbance-oî the French mind. It has been seriousiv reasoned that the agitation ,which -is so general uud for which no very good explanation has been given, is really a mental- dis ease. It is generally a season of publio scandal and of trouble in government affairs, but these do not explain the. dis content which seems to éxisb among the people at large. It is not due to the. Jack of prosperity in general for the* French peasants are among the most -prosperous in the world. The theory, therefore, that this uncertain feeling is but another phase of th&t sentiment which has started revolutions in-France at very short notice and without cause is certainly worth studying. A mind diseased is never pleas ed, and that it what ailed a great many of the qualified (?) electors of the United States on the 8th day of last November. Surely it was not due to a lack of prosperity for the Americans are the most pros yerous people in the world. The cause of the disease which gave the democracy the victory, is not hard to find. It is the same here as in France, and anyone at all acquainted with the people o f the two countries can at once see that they have simply become surfeited on the good, things of this life and a morbid longing for a change has set in in consequence. A very large per centage of the human family is* as unable to stand prosperity as is the remain der to submit to adversity. When the surfeited and those who .have nothing to lose and everything to gain unite, trouble begins. The great misfortune of all gov ernments o f the people is that there is always someone only too willing to take advantage o f [these weaknesses of those to be-govern ed and by that means foist them selves into power. ' -The -Indepenent’s account is correct. T he Great Falls Leader, speak ing o.f the formation of Teton county by the coming legislature has4his to stfy: “ Choteau county contains about as much land as Vermont, New Hampshire, Con necticut and Rhode Island and one state of these four has four teen counties. Choteeu county is large enough to make four coun ties right away. They contain re spectively, according to an atlas be'ore us, 9,565, 9,305, 2.050^and- 1.250 square miles, or a, total of 22.170 square miles, less than the area ot Choteau county.
