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.

I' / PAGE E IG H T THE DILLON, MONTANA, DAILY TBJBUNE-E3CAWNER m THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1% 1903 CONSERVATION C H A R L E Y Mr. f/Jk Has His Say... , Charley was bellying up to the bar in “Duncan’s Dungeon.” He’d stopped in for a beer to stabilize his nerves before tying-ftn the feed bag. It’s quiet in the Dungeon. The lights are dim. The juke box has laryngitis. There isn’t a single bar fly caging drinks. Charley’s nerves are purring contentedly. He raises his glass and sips the beer. His eyes sight down the length of the glass and zero in on another pair of eyes—big, brown, eyes. He sips and stares. Brown eyes stares back—the age old set ting for romance. Charley can’t help smiling out loud. Any other fellow in this sit uation would be swapping glances with a radiant redhead—or a beautiful brunette. The best Char ley can do is tangle eyeballs with a brown-eyed elk’s head hanging on the wall. Relic of Wilds Brown Eyes seems sad. Charley can’t help noticing the fly specks on the pupils. And the sparkle of the glask eyeballs is dulled by a film of grease and smoke which has accumulated through th e years. The hair on, the neck and head is dusty and unkempt. The rack, which grazes the ceiling, is a relic from a wild, free world far from the stale air of the Dungeon. Charley feels sad, too, He tries to visualize this moth eaten wall fixture gliding regally through the pine scented air of some far away mountain fastness. Brown Eyes must have been a proud and grace ful creature in those days. Chuck is jarred out of his re verie by a rough, belligerent voice. “Whatcha staring at?” it asks. Beer dribbles down Charley's chin as his mouth gapes open. Is that taxidermist’s puppet talking to him? “Yeah. Tm talking to you.” This time there’s no mistake about it. The head on the wall is speaking. “I was just wondering how a fel ler like you can hang around a place like this,” Charley stam mers. “Must be pretty dead around here with no cows to chase.\ “I can think of things I’d rather do than look at bleary-eyed beer kegs like you all day,” the head admits. “But from where I hang it doesn’t look like I’ve got much choice.” He pauses and curls his lip to chase a pestiferous fly away. “Course, things were pretty tough out there at times, too,” he continues. “Spring, summer and fall were great. We had plenty to eat, the sun was warm and the woods were full of friendly girls.” He drools a little over the mem ory. Never Had a Chance “Winter was murder, though.” He. shudders at the thought. “The snow was deep, our winter range was small and the winds were cold. There wasn’t enough food for all of us. We’d get weaker and weak er. We’d crowd together and die. When spring came the ground was littered with the dead. It was hor rible to see all of the youngsters who never had a chance.” He chokes up for a minute and can’t go on. When he regains control of his voice he continues. “A hunter's bullet can sometimes be merciful. The one that felled me spared me the agonies of another bleak and hungry winter. Many of the deer and elk and antelope you see sprawled out on cars and pickups these days arfe pretty lucky, too. / L |t'$ special and so delicious. . . because it’s flavored for you with Oranges & Sweet Spice. poultry seasoning, truly a miracle, it makes food taste so good. ■ mwni'A Tea with Garden Mint a deliciously new and refreshing flavor in tea. & Rare Teas , Imported, from around the world.

Thanks! t They’re not going to slowly and painfully starve to death.” , “Our range is just like a cattle range. It can be overgrazed. Too many critters eat for too long on an area and the grub runs out. Old Mom Nature is a tough nut in some ways. She gets rid of sur plus animals one way or another. If the hunter doesn't get them she’ll g et rid of them w ith disease, predators or. . starvation.” He sneezes as he gets a snoot of second hand cigarette smoke. Just Another Crop “Our range has to be managed ust like cattle and sheep range,” ie says. “Much as I hate to admit it, wildlife is just another crop from the land. We’re harvested each year by one means or an other. There’s some satisfaction in ending up on someone’s table rather than as coyote bait out in the forest.\ “Yeah, this is kind of a lousy place to spend the rest of my d^ys but it beats being a pile of bones out there.” And he bobs his head towards the distant mountains. Charley suddenly gulps his beer and heads for the door. When a stuffed elk head starts talking to a' feller—and making good sense — it’s time to vamoose. Next thing you know it’ll turn pink and come down to prance on the bar. ' They must be'packing a lot of dynamite in beer these days. ’ A dictionary Is a valued Christ mas gift. All price ranges.
