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.

[Youth’s Companion ] Once afar sin tbe “ land o* cakes.” O rugged mom.tains and bright blue lakes, There dwelt a frugal and simple pair, Proagetous, thrifty, and foil a care; Early they slept and late thay woke, Honest and diligent farming folk; Plenty o f bairns tMey had, indeed. Many to cloth» and many to feed. But love mad» labor a pleasant thing To chi d and parent -and all went well Till in the boas, hold, one luckless spriug, A mischievous Browm* came to dwelt. Ah, he was a wicked sprite indeed I He scared the ca'tle and stole their feed, H» fastened bars to the poor cow'» tall. He scattered sand in the milk-maid’s pail. He lamed her three-legged mi>king-stool, A»u down she weut in a creamy pool. He led the moles to the planted se ds, He spoiled tht- garden with worms and weads. He lured the sheep to the field o f oats. He tore with brambles their fleecy coats, Ho told the birds of the cherry tree,— A wicked Brownie indeed wus b»i He harassed kitchen as well as byre; Be quenched toooals of tbe house wiVa fire, Ho broke her distaff, and laughtd at her, He filled with burdocks tbe kitten > fur, He burned the cakes and ho schorchcd tks broom. He scattered the ashes about tbe roc m. He rusted the kettles, knives, and tins, He lost tbe needles and stolt* the pins. He soured the milk and spoiled the bread. He sprinklod crumbs in the children’s bed. He plagued t he goodntun with aches and pains, iUieunmtic twinges aud ornel sprains. He took his mind from his prayers and creed,— All, he was a wicked sprite iaikui! \t last, when patience w^s worn to shreds, A plan oame into their worried he&Ab, To .leave forever the fated farm Where they had »offered »neb toss awd harm. To trick the Urowuie, and steal away And leave him lonesome,Some pleasant day; And so, thoogh sorry and sore at heart, They loaded wagon, uml horse, and cart W ith round-cyea children, and goods, and gear, The goudwifo grieving, wiib sob and te»r At leavL g thua, for no sin or wrong, The dear oid home she had iovod so long. When ail was ready to sta;t away, A passing neigh bx,r,-'iwas mancst-day,— - ailed ’ Going, neighbor?” across the road; Just then, atop o f tbe highest loasi, Peered a moment a small brown h«ad- *' **>», *»o’re t im in '/” th» btovrmo »aid. fho couple looked iu each other's eye», With terror, sorrow, aud sore surprise, And read there, plaiuer than words could say, is the use of runing away? Little good will our moving do if this bad Brownie is going too.” i'hen in silence did they unpack Their hou-eh«<ld goods from tbe pony’s baek And tbe heavy cart aud the loaded wain, aud placed them back in th» Loose again. And tho good wife mid, ns she blew th» coals, **Ah. for oar discontented some. Wr.erever wo go; by i»nd or s?», r..»re wi l our cares und trials b#; They h*unt all houses, beyond a doubt, We can't escape them by tnoviug out. Whenever we o’eek a new abode. We take ocr Brownie atop o' the load ” EL'Z VBKTU AKERS. T h e JKcl.itu r ’» JL>U ir* [From an Exeliange.] A newspaper man ha* no bu»i ness to seek office. It is hi* busi ness to tiy and get an office for the oilier fellow; to bound the praise of the candidate and keep quiet his • •wn feeling; to whoop her up for his man, and let his man forget all ibout him when lie is elected; to defend his candidate against the unjust attacks of the opposition, ami see that whatever favors hi* candidate has U> bestow ~&oes c o the other fellow. It i* his business to boom (he city for all it is worth, mouth af ' ter month, and then see $.00 worth of printing go out o f the city be ! cause ten cents can be saved in doing so. It is the business of the newspaper to give every enter prise a frequent ‘'send off,’’ and then catch *-h«ol because he had failed to record the fact that some prominent citizen had his delivery wagon painted. T-a subscribe liberally to every public charita­ ble ami churen entertainment, ad* vertise them for nothing, pay his own way to everything and then he called prejudiced and moan spirited because a column is not devoted to that particular affair. Do vou wonder that there are so many cranks in the newspaper business-? W o m e n in H otels. Women in hotels hare their strong points and their weak ones. They do not order drinks or eat expensive meals. They do not make a noise in the co ridors. They do not clip the furniture or spill ink on the carpet. They do not throw burnt matches on the carpet or cigar ends in the wash basin. The do “ look well;’’ add to the attractive appearance of the place; attract respectable custom. Tliev do—sometimes—wash I heir % handkerchiets at the wa>hstai d and dust their shoes with towel That’s economy, the feminine vir tue or vice, as it may be. They give the bellboys plent\ to d o . They get flowers which m« n never do. One man can make more trouble iu a hotel than 10 women; or le%s than one. On the who’e, hotel men an glad to have-them around, and ul Wify* say, “ come again.” Tlie Bin liugtuii.

The Big Horn & ¡Sonthern will connect with the Montana & Wyoming and all will be tinier the Burlington’* control.

NO. 45. A Ma*siv«Ship of Wav. The battle ship Indiana, launoli* ed at Cramp’s shipyard, will be the most massive ship of war ever set afloat in the waters of this continent, and she wi'l take rank without question among the stout­ est wat: vessels in the world. The launch o f such a craft is more than a fleeting spectacle to thrill the tens of thousands who may look upon it—more than an occasion of patriotic national interest made memorable by the presence of the* nation’« highest dignitaries. For it marks the dawn of a new era in the history of our naval establish­ ment, and one which will find recognition as promptly among foreign governments as at home. •—Philadelphia Record. An Irrigation Pump. The McIntyre Irrigatioq pump was started yesterday afternoon pumping out the coff.T-dam where the Townsite company is erecting its new power-house at. Black Eigle falls, and it is doing excel­ lent work says tho Great Fall* Tribune. Quite a number of en­ gineers and practical mechanics were present and all pronounced it a decided success. The pump consists of four hollow arms re­ volving on a single bearing and there is but one valve in the en­ tire pump which is the foot valve at the bottom of the suction pipe. It is extremely simple, durable «nd cheap of construction and does ill the inventor claims for it. An lectrie motor is used for running it. but any power can be used— -ither horse, wind, steam or water, making it especially adapted to heu8o of the farmer, who, with hi* team, can raise sufficient water to irrigate 160acres to a height fo from 25 to 28 feet, but with morw pi Wer will raise water to any heighlh. The inventor has oof* eial improvements which, when perfected, will increase its present efficiency very materially, * It is certainly going to supply a long fell want in the arid regions. The pump will be running for the next iwo weeks at the point named, an 1 will then be set on the river b ink near the wagon bridge to demonstrate what can be done with two horse-power. The man who cheats the printer Out of a single cent Will never reach the golden shore Where old Elijah went, H* will not gain admission there, Bv ftpv’le he’ll be driven A • • • ’ made t > loaf his timo away Outw.Uo the walls oi heaven.
