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 Yankee School Teacher’s Ex­ perience W ith Her Class. “ She was a bright young Yan­ kee shoolmarm,” said Thompson H. Herndon to a reporter of the St. Louis Republic. “ She came highly recommended to a prosper ous aristocratic neighborhood not far from Little Rock a few months ago, and Time wore on, and her pupils advanced wondenuUy in their studies. She conceived the idea a few weeks ago of giving an exhibition of her most proficient class, and invited all the neigh bors to„come to-., the liUle-«school; house on Friday evening, that they might see and hear for themselves the progrcit that had be n made by her teaching. There was a good crowd present, She had all the little girls and little boys to stand up. She questioned this one about one thing and another about something else. Their an swers were gratifying to the pret­ ty teacher and to the parents of the children. “ Now,’ she said to them toward (he close, I ‘ want each of ydu to tepeat some old proverb.* “ Said Johnnie: ‘All is not gold .Fat glitters.’ “ ‘ Very good,’ said she, ‘very good.’ “ ‘Be virtuous and you’ll be happy,’ said Jimmie. “ ‘That’s splendid. Why, you boy8 remind me so much of a school I once taught in Boston,’ responded the fair teacher. “ ‘The germ of ambition is the chrysalis of wisdom,7 said Willir*, “ And so on down the class she went until she got to Peck Smith. He wasn’t very bright and she in­ tended to skip him; but he seemed anxious to say something, and th'* asked him if he knew and old proverb. He did. “ ‘ A 6tump-tailed yaller dog is best for coons,’ was his answer. “ Peck’s father grabbed him up joyfully, and before'he left paid a year’s tuition for Peck in ad vance.” Two Bright Minds in Collison. General Butler had charge of a bill and in the time allotted to him for closing the debate he was answering seriatim the members who had opposed him. He treat ed them all with respect until he came to Mr. Cox, whom he an­ swered last. •‘And now,” said he, “ as to the gentleman from New York, who sits on my right, my answer shall be very brief and very simple. It is whistled by the bootblacks on the street; it is sung by the cham­ bermaids in the hotels; it is in everybody’s mouth: ‘Shoo, fly, don’t bodder me.’ ” Butler suited the action to the word by drawing his right hand rapidly across his ear as if aimed at an intruding fly and took his seat amid the laughter of the house. A short time afterward Cox got partly even. He (Cox) had the floor and was alluding to a remark made in debate by a Massachu­ setts member. Butler jumped up and asked Cox if he (Butler) was the person meant, “~^Not sit^said O o i;‘“ i laid the honorable gentlemen from Massa­ chusetts,” putting great emphasis on the adjective.-—Globe Demo crat. A Valuable Invention. [R iver P ress .) Chas. McIntyre, of Great Falls, through his attorneys, T. W. Mur­ phy, o f this city, and McGill, of Washington, D. C., has just se­ cured a patent on a new pump, which is considered by the experts at ihe patent office as the finest thing in its class that has ever come under their observation. The pump is a centrifulgal one and is an absolutely new idea, and not merely an improvement on some former invention. Accord­ ingly a first class patent w;-« granted toMr.McIntrye. A pump made upon the principle invented by Mr, McIntyre is now almost completed, and will be on exhibi­ tion in Great Ealls in a few days. By the use of compressed air. water can be lifted anjr distance, and twice as much water raised as with any other pump in use. Mr. McIntyre informs us that with a span of horses the pump can be easily worked in any stream, and will raise to a height of twenty feet, 40 miners’ inches of water, sufficient to irrigate 160 acres, lie is backed in this enterprise by T. E. Collins and other capitalists. ■ • ♦ « ■ \ - - A tailor’s goose—The dude. MONGOLIANS MUST GO. Thousands of Chinese W ill Be Shipped to Their Native Lend« S an F rakcisoo , February 14 .— The collector of internal revenue in charge of Chinese registration at this point, is already laying plans for deportation ef Chinese who refuse to register according to the provisions of the Geary act. “ The gevernment means busi­ ness,” said Collector Quinn, “ and proposes to complete the work which Geary has begun. The Chinese do not intend to register, as has been alreay shown, and they imagined that when the .deputies ' were removed that the bill had become null and void. They have prepared to fight us in the courts, and the question arose at to what arrangements we could make to lake care of them pending the hearing in court. Well, the gov- • ernment will show them. * -There are 50,000 Chinese in my district and they calculated on defying us because we had no jail room.. I think we can register at least 30,- .. 000 on Goat island and when we have deported these we will get the rest.” “ How will you proceed to en­ force the law?” was asked. “ That will be very simple. On the 6th of May, the day after the expiration of the time for registra­ tions, I will send a force of men out and arrest every Chinaman that cannot show a certificate of registration. We will send them to Goat island as fast as we get a tug load. The Chinese themselves will lose no time in getting into the courts for we propose to ship them out of the country as fast as possible. The large majority of them will have to go back ta China, and if they were to start in to register to-morrow, the work could not be finished with fifteen deputes working ten hours a day. We still have on hand $84,000 of the appropriation and with this amount of money we can do some goi.d I think. American war ships can be brought into requisi­ tion in the deportation o f the men, and it will only be a matter of time when the country will be free from Chinese. , , . i - . . .
