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.

In October, 1864, there was a meeting in George Wood’s cabin to arrange for laying oot a town and giving it a name. These were tome of the names the rough miners suggested that the prospec­ tive city be called: “ Punkinville, Squashtown, Tomahawk and Tomab.” A John Somerville sug­ gested that a good name would be St. Helena. The general taste was divided between Helena (a shortening of St. Helena) and Tomah, an abbreviation of Toma­ hawk. Helena wow the votes In the name St. Helena the accent is on the second syllable of the last word, but in the course of years lhe name of the place has come to be called Helena, with the accent on the first syllable. It is said that one miner had been to the island ot St. Helena and thought Last Chance gulch looked like a part of that island. Then, again, it is said that Hele na was the name of a daughter of a miner who attended the moot­ ing or o f the wife o f snch a miner. But the best story is that John Somerville who said, in a speech that he made: “ I belong to the best country in the world, lived in the best state in it, in the best county in that slate, and in the best town in that county, and, by the etern­ al. this place shall bear the name of that town—Helena.” He was a tall, hardy, jovial frontiersman from Minnesota, who had his wife with him rough life as a Ralph in Harper’s The he in !to sna^ teen wrrok^E^^ptiistracted the Ornmnau drummer p from in e unhurt rear the shapeless smoker, fe had been enjoying acigar ben the crash came. “ Save myjiusband!” she cried in agony. Smoke ascended; timbers crash ed; I lie roof settled lower and lower, white horrible groans emerged from the inside. “ Oh, Henry,” she wailed, “ are you still alive?” “ Yes,” came the agonized reply, “ but la m pinned across a red hot stove; m'y clothes are on fire; the roof is crushing me; a beam has half impaled me; aud I shall be dead in one instant if help doe6 not come!” “ Oh, help, helpl Rescue my husbandl” she shrieked in frenzy. The recuers worked like de mons. “ I am safe, Henry,” she cried. “ Thank Heaven for that!” “ The baby is not hurt a bit.” “ Thank Heaven for that.” His voice grew rapidly fainter while he moaned: “ Make haste, men; the car is on fire all about me, and I shall be roasted alive m two minutes more.” “ And Henry,” again cried the wife, “ dear mamma is safe, too!” Then from under the blazing wreck, in clear, calm, collected, Pearl street business tones of re­ solve, the husband cried: “ That settles it, boys—rescue somebody else.”—Fort Worth Ga­ zette. - ■ — - ■ ■ ■ ■ ♦ - She—What is the science of palmistry I hear so much about?

Years Are Lived in Seconds and a Life-time in a Moment. are curious mental ndeed,” said Hiram | | e d a cigar in the on^p is it strange, hould wander al- past when one is at ; is strange to note w short they are. In dreaming' have often discovered a period of 10 years in my early life, and * grasped in a hazy manner the principal events of the entire time. Not long ago I began to itudy over the shortness cf my morning nap and the number of dreams that entered into the space of sleeping. I have awakened in the morning, looked at my watch, and observing that it was still early, turned over for a second nap. “ In a little while I would find myself awake and endeavoring to recall some dreams that had troubled my little doze. Then -I would imagine that I had- belsn sleeping too long, hastily look at my watch and find that I had been asleep only a few minutes, and sometimes only a minute. - Yet in that short space 1 had falleu asleep, dreamed of a dozen- differ­ ent events and persons, apparent­ ly a long mental wandering, cover­ ing hours, had awakened and spent a few moments in retrospec­ tive thought, and all in the space of a minute. I see now that a dream is computed to be extra long when it lasts 10 seconds, and that the duration of an ordinary dream is five seconds. These fig­ ures are taken from the writings of a German scientist who has made experiments in this line dur­ ing the lasts year.”—St. Louis R e ­ public. Ram’s Horn Axioms. The riches that run to us soon fly away. When we try to please every­ body we shall please nobody. No wound can hurt so badly as the one inflicted by a friend. Beware o f the man whose wife is always saying he has no faults. . i It is easier to backslide at camp meeting than it is in a shipwreck. Some people will sell their souls very cheaply for the prom­ ise of spot cash. There is nothing some people are so slow to learn as that they * have been humbugged. 1 If stinginess is a disease there are a good many people in tha church who are not healthy.
