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.

'} ‘ * 1 ■ One day last week one of, W. 8. '.Bar rett’s herders was seiiously’ injured by being blown from a steep embankment while carrying a weakling in his arms,' The man undertook to decend. from a high rocky ridge when .the strong wind caught him and hurled him ' down the declivity, dislocating bis shoulder and bruising him severely about the body and bead and leaving him lying uncoil* scious at the foot of the hill'. As the ac cident accured at the home ranch tio: time was lost in caring for the injured man, but his recoverv seemed slow and uncertain, and on M onduy M r . Bar rett came to town for Dr. Drake, and now the shattered sheepherder is rapid ly recovering from his injuries. J. W. McKoighfccame in from Dupuy- er last Friday evening on his way to Helena where he will make a strong ef fort to have Dupuyer named by the leg islature as the county seat of Teton county, failing in which he will oppose the formation of the new county to the best of bis ability. This is but natural ly on his part, as he owns the townsite there, having purchased it for specula tion, but it ik terribly rough on his neighbors. M a c k ’s interests in the proposed new county do not extend outside of the sacred precincts of his townsite anything which would je *p- ardize his chances of booming Dupuyer doss not meet with his approval. I. S. Corson arrived from Great Falls on Tuesday evening, bringing a stone mason with him who took charge of the stone work on the hotel. Wednesday, the work of laying the foundation was begun and already a busy scene is pre sented on the site of the new building The excavation for the basement is be ing rushed a-ud by Monday the ..carpen ters are expected to begia their work: On Tuesday morning last th$ railroad bridge across the Tetofi at Collins, was destroyed fire by dropped from a pas sing locomotive. j John Nabors, who was shot in> the breast a t Robare a couple o f weeks' ago, died of bis wounds on Saturday. The re mains were brought to Choteau Monday and buried in the cemetery hero on Tuesday. B S F Q IÌE A& Ù A F T E R .
