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.

Dr. Brooks was called to see the infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Freeman of Saypo last Saturday and found it very low with pneumonia.

Dame Rumor ia always voluble but she usually knows what she is talking about1 It does not therefore require a great deal of oredulity to believe what Dame Rumor now says about a wedding lomg expected in this community. Such wedding i s 1 to take place at Sand Coulee within a few days if not sooner. It ia a pretty ente sehemo but we shall still have the happy couple as oitizena of Choteau just the same as soon as the wedding trip ia ovei. The “ Queen” with her mighty scepter called at this office yesterday morniug with blood in her eye, swearing vengeance against the editor of this paper. The editor however was not to be caught that way for he had spied her rotnnd form coming down the street, and, surmising her intentions, immediately hid himself under a sheet of writing paper. The “devil” too, being of a timid nature, dis­ appeared also, and up to the hour of going to preas no trace of him has as yet boon discovered. The question ef education is one which should concern everybody and especially should we be interested iu the education­ al system of our own couiity. But how are our young people to seonre a well rounded edueatioa? While our common school system is good it does not go far enomili. Provisions are made in the schoi.i hwa for the establishment of a count.\ in tgh school in each county. Most of the counties in Montana have estab­ lished high schools at a nominal cost. Why not have a high school in onr coun­ ty? Such an institution would b^_ a credit to our people. The Eastern Star Whist Club held its regular bi-weekly meetiag in the Masonic lodge room on Tuesday evening. There t was a good attendance and an unusually pleasant evening was spent.

A letter received Wednesday, by Mrs. Byron Corson from Mrs. M. E. Stillman dated at Butte, brings news of the death of Mrs. S. Y. Ponrod, which sad event took place in that city on Monday last. No particulars were learned except that ske had keen sick for sometime and thst the seriousness of her condition was not fully realized until too late to save her. Mrs. Penrod's home had been iu Chotean for a number of years. Here Blie had many friends, warm sympathizing friends, without whom she would long since have bsen dead. Mrs. Penrod was in frail health during all the years she lived in this place and her life all that time was pathetic in the extreme. Advertised Letters.
