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.

The thought of Lin coln recalls at once “A govern ing nt of the people, for the people, by the people.\ Grant w’as made famous by “ Unconditional sur render.” Jackson gave us the sentiment, “ Our federal union; it mm-t. be preserved,\ and his blunt self reliance shines lorlh in “ I'll take the responsibility.\ Jefferson is immortal as the author of the preamble of the Declaration of In dependence, ami, wherever there is a public school, his words are familiar. “ We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’’ A paraphrased form of W.i-hiiicton's sentiment has lived, “ In time of peace, pre pare for war.” Scholarly John Quincy Adams wrote: * This hand. to tyrants ever sworn the foe. io r Freedom only deulsttie blow.” President Harrison's new year sentiment, too. is a good one, “ Ke tregression would bo a crime.’’ It is pleasant at this time to re call that Baying of ex President Hayes, which is one of the best political maxims ever recorded. Iu urging the necessity of civil service reform and fidelity to pub lic trust, in his inaugural address, he said: “ He serves iiis party best, who serves his country best.’” This was his motto, and, viewed retrospectively, his life seems to have been in full accord with it. .

Tough if True. “ When I was filling on the Kankakee some fifteen years ago,” said the man with the cigarette to an Indianapolis Journ d man, “a whirlwind came along and carried off my vest that wa> hanging on a limb just over my head. It had my watch in it and—a tailor’s ac count. Well, the whole outfit sailed out of sight in less than a minute. Seven years afterward a party of us were camped up the same river, only 100 yards farther up. It was my turn to do the cooking, so I started out for some dry wood, stepped on a log, which caved in, aud loi as the story books say, there lay my watch with the same old tailor's bill twisted through the ring. It was still run ning.\ “Oh. come off! You want us to nek you how such a thing could be and then you'll explain that the whirlwind wound your watch up so fight that it ran for seven years.” “ I didn’t say the watch was still running,” said the story teller, as he lighted another bacillus exter minator; “ I had reference to the tailor’s bill. It is running yet, in fact.” • * * * Charley Wilcox was in the burg the other day, says the Burney Valley Bulletin, exercising his team of speckled colts. The way tlie animals happened to be speckled happened in this way: While their mother was at Hat creek driuking one day, 6he was seized by the lip by a trout weigh ing at least 20 pounds. The fish had to be killed wilh an axe be fore it would release its hold, and when the twin colts wer,e born they were specled like trout. They are an extra fine team and are pe- culiary fond of water. It is possible that the public may be somewhat relieved of the great mass of dirty, mutilated paper currency sogenerally in cir culation, and the money of the country may hereafter be cleaner ; and more sightly. Representa tive Outliwaite, of Ohio has intro duced a bill in the house provid ing for the frequent redemption ot National bank and treasury notes and their exchange for new notes at government expense. It is sensibly argued that dirty bank notes are the home of disease germs, and disease is often trans- , united by this means. It is be lieved that the early passage of the bill would aid in guarding i against the possible spread of cholera through the medium of circulating notes.
