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.

Little, who for several years paid Choteau regular month ly visits to preach the gospel to the people of this section. As the many friends of Mr. Little in this section will be pleased to hear from him we take the liberty of publishing his kind letter in fill’: W alker V illb , Moot., Feb 21,1893.— 8. M. Corson, Esq., Cboteau, Mont. D ear S ir : It is with a great deal of pleasure that I read T he M ontanun •very week, and thus keep posted in the affairs of Choteau. Allow me to con gratulate my many iriends in Choteau aud vicinity on the creation of Tetou county, which every one atallacquaint- e i with the country must admit to be an act of juctice t > the people of tb e western part of what used to be Choteau county. . I read with a great deal of pleasure the arcount of banquet given in honor of that event, and the long list of sub* jects and speakers, must have made an .snjoyable season to all who were for tunate enough to be present. There a^e several things-that I would like to congratulate the people of Cho teau upqn having, but time, nor space will not permit. I do feel interested in the religious welfare of Choteau, a place that I visited as often as my other du ties would permit for over fire years, and I am glad that you have a minister of the gospel residing among you I hope be will be successful iu building a church that will be both an ornament and a blessing to tho residents of the new county seat. What changes have taken place since I Qrst visited Choteau, over seveu years ago! Why it seems to me (judging of of course from the reports given in T he M ontaman ) that you are making won* derful improvements on a place alroady favored by nature, you are no longer a hundred a;jleB from any where, but have alf tho appliance's right m your midst of aF~biftrutiful a county seat as can be ■found anywhere ia beautiful M ontana. The only fault I have to find with n»y friends of Choteau is, that they have n i t been as enterprising as they might have been in the pftBt, but I imagine now that they have tho county seat, that they will try to build up Choteau, and make it au important town of Northern Mon tana. Why, Sir, you have such a variety of interests, and such magnificent natural advantages, that io ten years from now you ought to rank nraoug the manufac turing towns« I M •n»ana,grindineyour own wheat into flour,and crushing your o wn oats into meal, and making your own wool into cloth. I know this may seem visionary even to the most en thusiastic friends of your section, but I believe it possible, aud if a few of your enterprising capitalists will offiy make a start in the right directi on, they wil P o w d e r : The only Bure Cream o f Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum.
