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.

Spokes­ men for taxpayers along Helena street say they are ready to ap­ prove a project on that route — but the cost estimate hasn’t been completed yet. Among other matters at the meeting, the council learned that traffic tickets for the month had yielded $343 in overtime parking fines. They confirmed the hiring of Bruce Knox as a city patrol­ man; raised the sexton fees for opening graves for county burial to $10; approved the assessments in the sewer improvement dis­ trict amounting to $6,100 for col­ lection on the 1956-57 tax rolls. Robert Sanborn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Byron Sanborn, has returned to his home here after being sep­ arated from the Navy last Friday. Pacific yards heard the baa-a-ing of sheep, the rattle of “strings” of tin cans and shouts of loaders with \the shrill yelling of the crews engaged in the work. There are a number of retired stockmen in the area and to these the commotion— painful to a few neighbors, was music in their ears — especially when cattle added their lusty bawling to the din. , r The day started with the early morning arrival of 3,000 black­ face lambs, trailed in from the Andy Williams ranch on the Gravelly range for delivery to Mecklenberg ' and Brannon of Burley, Idaho; before their dust settled another 4,200 began to arrive by truck from the Peter H.

The chapter voted to repeat its traveling clock award to the out­ standing cadet at the Butte School of Mines next spring, and also continued its magazine sub­ scription for veterans at the V A hospital at Miles City.
