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.

B annack , April ‘4.— The Graeter boat left the docks March 27th under a full head of steam and began the season’s op­ eration of washing those aurifierous laden buckets of gravel. Owing to the early spring she has every prospect of a suc­ cessful and long continued season. ‘The Coast Company has put its dredge in fine shape and began operatioDB the following day. George White, superintendent of the Butte mine, situated near Polaris, came in from that distriot this w eek and gives a very favorable report of the mines of that distriot. In the Butte mine he is running a tunnel to tap the ledge at a depth of 125 feet, which is the depth of the original shaft. . Although he left a large body of. ore in the shaft, whioh was improving as depth was gained, it can be worked to a better advantage through a tunnel. Dr. R. H. liyburn has returned from a ten days’sojourn at lied Lodge, Mont., and we are glad he returned as his med­ ical aid was needed many times during his absence. Tne young ladies of Bannack have or­ ganized a baseball team, under the man­ agement of Kelly, whioh will undoubt­ edly prove the greatest suooess of the season. Miss Artie Gray, as oatcher, will need no baokstop; Miss Sherwood throws both regular and irregular curves, while Miss Bowman’s osoilhating movements bb a first base player showB that Bhe is an athlete; Miss Ellis iB a Hercules at the bat; Miss Grace Gray a sprinter in the field and the manager makes first base with a “Slide, Kelly, slide!” John Dolan has returned to his former position us midshipman on the Nellie Bly transport, plying between the shores of the Grasshopper and the Graeter dredge. The descendants of Rip van Winkle while away many leisure hours wtih rod and guu on the banks of the Grasshop­ per,and among the evening gatherings one fiji-'-s picatorial yarns which are pretty bard to take in without- insinuating that some one iB a liar. Wm, Hughes, who has been employed as motor man on the Eleotrio dredge for several years past, has returned from Tex, Idaho, where he has been working some valuable mining property. The rubber nooks used to oonneot the sluice boxes on the dredges are of large dimensions, but they have not the elas tioity whioh is found in our local, walk­ ing, automatic rubbernecks. ||W e unders and that Fred Gibson has signed an agreement to work a period of seven years for a .rancher on the Grass hopper. Wm. Lytle has returned from Butte and received a hearty welcome from his many friends, especially those who work­ ed with him on the boat, and who always ound him a tfiie companion. Mr. Lytle has resumed bis position bb foreman on the Ooast Co’s dredge. The Gold Dredging Co. have a force of men employed in denning out the water ditch whioh supplies power to run the dynamos. This looks as though we will soon bear the familiar hum of motors on the old dredge. , John Shaffer has returned from Argen- ta to work on the dredge. He is a full- fledged sailor. As my -taxes, that is, syntaxes, bother considerable and sharp tacks run into my heel last night while hunting pargorio I close. T buth ’ s S eobetary , V ebacity . LIMA. PAGEVILLE.

Special Correepondence to T bibune : L ima , April 4.— Last Saturday night in response to a pall issued by the school trustees, a meeting was held in the school building for the purpose of placing a can­ didate for school trustee before the elec­ tors of school district No .,12. At eight o’clock the oauous was called to order by W. F. Gardner who announced the pur­ pose ot the meeting. The following names were placed in nomination: A. T. Kellum and Lawrence Sellstrom and they will be voted upon next Saturday after­ noon. Only one is to be elected to fill the two years’ term. Following this meet­ ing, at the same time and place, Joseph Wall and D. D. MoKnight, both pf Dell, were nominated as road supervisors They, also, will be voted upon next Sat­ urday. Sunday afternoon a game o f base ball was played between a Lima nine and a nine consisting of O. S. L. employes. The game was rather tame and resulted in a victory for the O. S. L. by a soore of 37 to 18, with one iuniug to spare. A dance is to be given on Friday night for the benefit of the Lima team. The mem­ bers will put themselv es under training for the coming seasou.

This oc­ casion is being looked forward to ivith in terest by all who delight to trip the light fantastic. Everybody attending will sure ly have a good time as the members of that order can give an entertainment seo ond to none. Tuesday afternoon quite a heavy hail aud thunder storm passed over this sec­ tion. It was of short duration but very Bevere. J. F. Bishop and A. L. Anderson, both of Dillon were notioeu as passengers Wednesday. Henry Gleed left Saturday for Balt Lake where he''took his son to plaoe him under medical treatment The boy has been siok for some time, but owing to ex­ isting conditions it whb deemed advisable to take him there. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Gleed extend their sympa­ thy and trust their Bon may soon return restored to his usnal good health. J. L.

Mr. Cunningham, principal of our pub­ lic sohool for the present, term, left on last Friday night’s passenger for. his old home in Pennsylvania in response to a telegram received that morning announc­ ing the serions illness of bis mother. We trust on his arrival he will find her con­ dition muoh improved. $ire. J. T. Yoe of Dillon has come to Lima to take charge of the school to fin­ ish the present term. A special engine was run from Idaho Falls Wednesday afternoon which brought Dr. Larne to attend H- Drake who was reported by Dr. L. C. Ford to have tonsilitis. On his arrival Dr. Lsrne examined the patient and pronounced it a severe case of pneumonia. Mr. Drake is in a very low oonnition. Rev. Smith and E. A. Bailey have re- .turned from their trip to the valley. A very sad incident occurred in onr midst this week. Between Tuesday and Wednesday the thread of life was broken and the earthly career of Baby Halverson oeased to be. The baby had been ailing somewhat for about two weeks, but the illness did not seem to be of a serions na­ ture. On retiring (Tuesday night noth­ ing unusnal attracted the attention of the parents, and it was indeed a sad surprise when on awakening in the morning they found the baby dead, resting in its moth­ er’s arms. The' f aneral services were held this afternoon in the meeting house of the Later Day Saints. Elder Willison ofBo- iated «odtbeservioes were largelyattend­ ed.

POINTED PARAGRAPHS. Good advice very oi’teu turns out to be Impracticable. A miser is one of the things that wljl keep in any climate. By taking up a collection the min­ ister gets the cents of the meeting. The printer Is a generous, whole- souled fellow—he Is always setting ’em up. Verdict of a rural Jury: “We find the man who stole the horse not guilty.” A man wouldn't be able to recognize himself If lie were what a woman thinks lie Is. The laborer is all right In his place, but the loafer Is too lazy to look for a place. When you have occasion to question a man's veracity it Is usually advisa­ ble to use a telephone. If some people would tell what they know Instead of what they believe they wouldn't have so much to say. Charity should begin at home, but judging by the way relatives talk about each other It very seldom does. Racks and thumb screws were used to torture people in ancient times, but in this age of enlightenment nothing remains but the camel-hair undergar­ ment.—Chicago Dally News. Mean Man'« M ean Trick. It was a mean trick, of course, and some day she will doubtless get even With him. She saw him take a piece of paper from his packet, carefully fold it up, put it In an envelope and then place the envelope in one of the far corners of the drawer of the li­ brary table. “Wbat’s that?\ she asked. “Oh, nothing of any importance,” he replied. Now, If he had simply thrown it carelessly into the drawer she would have thought nothing of It. but the care he took to put it clear over in the far corner and the fact that he seemed ill at. case after he found that his action bad been observed aroused her curiosity. She wondered what it wns. and she reasoned with herself that he had said it was “nothing of Importance.” so he would have nobody but himself to blame If she took a look at it. . She was justified in in­ ferring from his words that there was no reason why she should not. And this Is what she read on the paper: “I’ll bet you a new hat your curios­ ity will not permit yon to let this alone?” It was a terrible predicament in which to place a woman.. How could she claim the new hat without giving herself away?
