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.

Tri-State Minerals has been mining and shipping crude talc from the Axe’s Canyon since 1941. For several years the railroad cars were loaded at Dillon but several years ago a loading ramp was built at ,a new Siding near Barretts, where the trucks hauled the talc for stock-piling and ship­ ment. Operations at the Barretts site have been gradually ex­ panded throujgh the years and culminated with the building of the new mill on which construc­ tion started last summer. Tri-State has been a valuable asset to Dillon and the county from the start. Its expanded oper­ ations now and the increase in employment will make i t ; the largest single industrial employer in the county, next- to the Union Pacific Railroad and Minerals En­ gineering Company. RIDINGS GRAVE MARKER i (C o n tin u e d fro m pag e 1) ' Harry S. Ridings, the situation was further complicated by draw­ ing into the picture a third name -—Jessie Richard Bryant, of San Marcos, Texas. His name was in­ troduced by his brother, George Bryant of San Marcos, who had been named as a half-brother-by the man wvho had been hospital­ ized and who died in Texas. George said he had no half-bro­ ther and had never heard of Rid- I ings, but that his full brother, authentic and worked painstak­ ingly to submit evidence—upon the apparent validity of which he based his conviction. The letter he received Monday confirms Mc- Cashin’s belief, but it does not satisfy his curiosity, for it fails to explain who the Texas Ridings really was. The letter merely notified Mc­ Cashin that investigation had shown that the deceased veteran’s grave here was entitled to the marker which McCashin applied for months ago. It did; however, acknowledge McCashin’s valuable aid in establishing identity in the case. Beaverhead 4-H.
