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.

(From the Tribune Aug. 21, 1891) Horse Prairie can boast of a dozen families and four grades of society. “What fools we mortals be.” Mr. Burnett’s hay self loader is causing great' excitement during haying as it will unload a load of hay in five minutes. Jay Gould passed through this cjty going north, Sunday morning. While his party was small, consist ing of only his son and daughter, and Mr. and\ Mrs. S. H. H. Clark. D. W. Hitchcock, general passenger agent stationed at San Francisco, and Mr. Thurston, attorney for the Union Pacific at Omaha, they trav eled in a special train, consisting of four Pullman coaches and a . bag gage car. Mr. Gould stepped out on the platform of the second Pullman and gave the assembled crowd the opportunity it wanted, that of crit ically inspecting the lime man of many millions. Gould is slight in stature, stoops a little and his face is almost * entirely covered with a heavy beard, which mixed with grey. Several of his company’s box cars were side track ed betwee’n his train and the city, intercepting his view, so that he could not see what a really hand some little city we have and judge for himself how much more advan- <i tageous it would be for his com pany to have the shops located in Dillon instead of 40 miles down the road. HOW GOES THE WORLD? BY. AUSTIN CONOVER — 40 YEAR5 AGO — (From the Tribune Aug. 16, .1901) The past week was the liveliest of the season in the wool market. Twelve!large shipments went out and save foir one lot of 25,000 pounds the wool warehouse .is empty. The last bar went out Tuesday and made the fiftieth carload shippeG from Dillon this season. Sunday’s Standard contained a special from Virginia City telling about the suicide of Charles Flynn, who was associated with Dan Calla han in tj$e blacksmithing business in Dillon a jjfew years ago. The dis patch skye: “A shocking case of suicide at Bryant’s ranch, in the up per Ruby | valley at 10:30 this morn ing. Charles Flynn shot himself twice with a shotgun, the first time BATTLE OF GERMANY —, Does Hitler dream these nights as the flower of his army presses east ward against aft enemy still capable of dogged resistance and occasional counter-attacks? Does he wake to wonder if, despite his past successes, lie has not this timp made some fatal miscalulation ? For neariy two years the Reichs- fuehrer has been the master strate gist. The battles of Poland, Norway, France. Britain and Greece have rep resented to a large degree his cnoice of time, place and weapons. This al so applies to the gigantic land bat tle now in progress, the Battle of Russia. But at last, we begin to hear about' a battle that Hitler didn't plan to fight. It is the Battle of Germany. The industrial centers of the Rhineland upon which Hitler’s army depends for supplies are being blast ed day after day by the Royal Air Force. The great seaports of Ham-, is plentifully J ^urg and Bremen as well as Dutch and French coastal cities where Ger man raiders are kept ¿are being bombed by explosives ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 pounds. According to a foreign military observer1 who has reached Ankara from Germany, there has been a per ceptible deterioration of German mor ale. With American production growing by leaps and bounds, the Germans are'likely to receive in increasingly larger. doses the kind of punishment which they have so often given others. But until they have tasked the full horrors of war, they will not realize entirely that the whole world is the implacable enemy of Hitler’s Reich. * * * BLONDES FOR DEFENSE —The fate of armies, of ships at sea, of aerial battalions may hang by a wisp of hair. Sounds ridiculous, does it? Then summon up, if you will, the ghost of Napoleon and he’ll tell you just how important it is to know what kind of Weather there will be.

But even Heinrich Himmler has not been any too successful. According tb last week’s report, German troops in the vicinity of Bergen mutinied and killed several of their officers. Of all the countries in which Great Britain has spread her \V for Vic tory” campaign, Norway has been most receptive. With fearless deter mination, Norwegians scrawl the let ter “V” on buildings. They rap three dots and a dash (the Morse code for “V”) on cafe tables. Over and o\^r again they play Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony\ which begins with three short beats and a long one. ' Under the excuse of a shortage of workers, compulsory labor has now been decreed throughout Norway, But it will profit Hitler little. Nor wegian exports to the Reich steadily decline. The population ingeniously keeps production down so that n§w supplies fail to materialize. Hitler reaps only problems from this land he has overrun. * * * MURDER IN SIBERIA—Probably ' there are many headstones graven ¡with the names of famous men' ¿¿d ' women who do not lie beneath in the shoulder, the second time in the heart. Flynn was despondent be- with' hmuMity^As” a result of’ fhe cause of the condition of his wife, with whom he wanted to go to California, but was-unable to do so “ because of an operation in surgery which she recently underwent. Fi nancial conditions were also a fac tor.” Dillon and Twin Bridges crossed bats last Sunday with the usual re sult; Dillon won an easy victory. But the fact is that Dillon did not play Twin Bridges, they played' a team selected”by Twin Bridges in whose' lineup were players from Helena, Boulder and Butte. — 30 YEARS AGO — (From the Tribune July 28, 1911) The report of Assessor Holden to the state board of equalization shows the following facts regarding prop erty in ; Beaverhead county: Farm lands valued at $2,339,297; city and town lots, $954,254; mining property, $30,498; 116 thoroughbred' horses, $29,405; 7,276 range horses and young stock, $256,025; 3,781 work horses and mules, $230,867; 5,116 beef steers, $204,515, and 21,938 cows are worth $421,627.'' H.‘ Andrus and wife came in from their ranch in Sheep Creek canyon, ¡Monday to see the monkey make the balloon ascension. The lease on the present quarters -of th& Dillon post office expires the first of the year, and the depart ments will shortly advertise for bids fqr..a «.suitable location or building. .Bond ■ and!

Cliff Bond will enter the lifestqck-industry on- rather a large work that meteorologists have been doing for years, the Germans were able to invade Poland and the Neth erlands at a time when mud would not slow down their advance. One of the most important instru ments in the hands of military and commercial weather bureaus is the weather recorder. Some of these are sent out in balloons that wireless back how wet or now dry it is any where up to an altitude of 12 miles. The basis of this instrument is a strand' or several strands of blonde hair. It seems that only blonde hair will do. This is because it is especially sensitive to humidity. Scandinavian hair, the blondest and longest of all, is still not available. Now, the Am erican fair-haired glamour girl can set an excellent example of patriot ism. She can send her locks to the President. * * * NO NAZIS FOR NORWAY T If Great Britain were to launch an in vasion of Europe tomorrow, she would find her chances brightest in Norway. There Is no “Vichy” gov ernment there. The‘puppet Quislings have , failed. All but three of the country’s 18 provincial governors have resigned rather than obey the orders of a foreign master. And those three - only remain nominally In office because they are under ar rest and the Nazis can find no one scale, and after a dissolution sale has -.been, completed,: AH w;*Bohd ini tends; to;, restock-the ;store' and\con* tinue in business.; ---.«m 'r : i Perhaps peasants of humblest blood sleep in royal vaults. Recently the . question was raised as to the rest ing place of the late Czar Nicholas II. ! The fate of this last czar of all the Russians is fairly well settled. He and his family were murdered in cold blood by the Bolsheviks at j Ekaterinburg d'eep ill the wild forest of Siberia on the night of July 16, 1918. | But were the ashes of Nicholas II and his family spirited to Harbin in an old box on which the staff of the American consul general kicked their feet to keep warm, Do they 1 rest now in the vaults of the Bank 'of England in London? General | Pierre Janin, who knew the czar well, tells that interesting story. | The Encyclopaedia B ritannica, however, declares that the bodies of 'the Romanoffs were soaked with petroleum and set afire. Only a few objects of apparel remained. ^ The Grand' Duchess Anastasia, one of the czar’s daughters, was said to have escaped. And rumor has given rise to many more questions of iden tity. In Louisiana whole counties be lieve that Marshal Ney eluded the firing squad and died ih a bed near New Orleans. Some contend' that Wilkes Booth wlio murdereu Lincoln lived to a ripe old age in Oklahoma. To this category of mysteries go such questions as that raised bÿ. thé story of General Janin. * * * ISLAND OF FREEDOM — This week: marks an ancient and hoble anniversary of the Swiss Conféà-. eracy. Éxactiy 650 years Ago men in certain' Alpine valleys formed a league and swore to stand always together. 'Since then' they have had io fïght ïriitèy ^ l i v a d b r . — - *‘f 1 Although tKfey^fiûîîày: mâlntidii tiieir independence, it is not without great sacrifice. Only recently they conclud ed an agreement with Hitler where by they exchange cattle, fruit and milk products for sugar, potatoes and fertilizer. They also agree to keep open the railroad line between Germany and Italy as this is the main avenue between the two coun tries. (The Brenner pass routé is small). There is a lesson, for Americans in the 650 years of independence which Switzerland has enjoyed’. These peo ple really know what unity means. They have had to overcome differ ences of blood, , religion, inherent traditions and language. But from the start they realized that unless they were united, vigilant and dis ciplined, ' wars raging all around them would’ come rushing uirough their mountain passes. Military service is compulsory. And today every man until he reaches the age of 60 must keep him self fit and ready for army duty. At present the Swiss are spending $1,- 000,000 a day on defenses. That Is almost incredible for a country of only 6,000,000 population. Certainly Switzerland’s willingness to bear these sacrifices unflinchingly is a remarkable demonstration of one ! - .. . , nation’s love for freedom. INVISIBLE SERVANTS — T h e United States with seven per cent of the world’s population uses 33 per cent of the world’s output of electric power. Yet, with more electricity than Germany, Italy and England combined, we are nearing a power shortage. There is a distinct possi bility that electric current for dom estic purposes may shortly have to be rationed in some localities. Twenty-four years ago this nation as a whole went on daylight saving time to conserve its electric power. Since then America’s capacity for generating electricity has more than tripled. But this has been more than offset by the steady expansion in'the consumption of electricity in homes, .due probably to the growing use pf electric refrigerators and’ other elec trical appliances. Moreover, the science of electro metallurgy and electrochemistry has made enormous strides. Both pf these sciences are used in the mak ing of aluminum wnich has become a' product vital to national defense. To. reduce, that metal from bauxite vast quantities of electric power are needed. So, more and more, the chief ser vants of American factories and homes are the electrons that whizz along a copper wire. And What bet ter servants could’ we ask to have? They are invisible, faster than sight, and seemingly inexhaustible. f “ TEN TEAMS SIGNED FOR TOURNAMENT (Continued from Page One) last two games. For the winners Scully led the hitting attack, but Chumrau stole the .show when he accidentally passed one of his own team mates while attempting to stretch a hit. Safeway turned on their close ri- i>al. the Fire Dept., and snowed them under to the tune of 17 to two In Thursday’s opener on the softball field., Lou Larsen and Dick Evans were the “Big Berthas” for the prune packers while Glen Walters of the smoke eaters held his own in the big six witli two hits out of three times at bat. McGovern starred on the mound for Safeway. Winn’s avenged their defeat of two week’s ago at the hand's of G. Chism and company when they knocked over Gleed's 14 to four in the night cap. Watkins worked hard under heat from his friends, ¡the fans,« and turned in a ' four-hit performance. Wedum, Bradley and Watkins led the hitting for the blue and gold while Clarke got two of the Gleed’s four hits. Eliel’s dumped Winn’s 12 to 1 Tues day in the feature half of a double- header to become undisputed second round champions in Dillon softball association standings. I t was the 9th straight victory for the clothing men, and although they must face Gleed’s Thursday, no other outfit can match their record whether or not they drop that encounter. Fire Depart ment nosed out Pheasant-Mirror 3 to 2 in an exceptionally well played game. Although Elieis managed a safe margin throughout, no òhe present felt that the contest was settled until the final putout, so great was the rivalry between the clubs. Eliel’s jumped into a three run lead in the first, and from there on in were never headed'. The winners added one\ in the‘fourth, a pair in the fifth and three each in the sixth and seventh. Winn’s lone counter came In the sec ond when Monger doubled, stole third and came home on a fielder’s choice. Farrell gave up only four safe blows, while Twirlers Vandegrift and Watkins allowed 13, including seven doubles and a triple. The evening's opener saw E. Sor enson and C. Johnson hook up in a brilliant hurling duel with the latter coming through to give up only two safe clouts. Sorenson allowed only five but his opposition was a bit stiff.
