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.

SOME LEAP-YEAR MATTERS. HE IS A LITTLE SNOB. lint is What Com ...... Folks Think or Laiiieatc Alfred Austin. Numerous societies of workingmen throughout England have denounced tho appointment of Alfred Austin us laureate. A radical pupor of Loudon voices tho sentimeut in tho following stroug words: ‘The most contemptible of the queen’s January honora is thut given to little Alfred Austin, a uiinor poet and tory hack-writer, who is lifted in­ to the position. A more miseiablo job than this would bo haTd to malch aro to regard the lanreateship any real seuso a national insti­ tution. It is evident, however, that future this office must be taken ns merely a court fuuetion to be held by toady of royalty, and from this point of view little Alfred Austin will be quite an ideal laureate. He is just tho kind of littlo snob to cele­ brate in verse the births, marriages and deaths, the tea parties, luncheons and laying of foundation stools, hich we associate with the dull auu stupid progeny of Queen Victoria. His place will be with the royal foot- aud lndios’ maids. To such depth has tho position once honored by Wordsworth and Tennyson fallen at last. ’ WOODLAWN CEMETERY. Columbia Falls, : Montana. CEO.

Rumors of the death of Mrs. A. E. Purviaoce were heard in Columbia Falls last week, and wore c by R. W. Main, who met Mr. Pur- viance. Tho death of Mrs. Purviance •as the result o f an operation which she had gone to Chicago to have per­ formed. Grave doubts were express­ ed as to tho possibility of survival af­ ter the intricate surgery. The opor- atipn was performed on Sunday, January 19. The first dispatch re­ ceived by Mr.. Purviance was that the operation had been successful and that the patient was doing well. A lator mossage convoyed • the sad jws to Mr. Purviauce that his wife as dead. The remains wore shipped to the Iowa homo of Mrs. Purviance, and tho husband started for that point. Mr. Purviance has any number of friends boro who sincerely sympa­ thize with him in his bereavoment. Music aud Pictures. At the entertainment to be given under the auspices of the Junior Ep- worth league ou Feb. 7, the follow­ ing tableaux will be presented: “Before and After—July 4 and July 5;” “Smiles;\ “Sit Still and Look Pleasant;” “ Villago Choir;” “Joan of Arc f “Jepkthu’s Daughter;’ treat Me Not to Leave • Thee;” “ Will You be My Valentine?” “Starlight;’ “The Guardiau Angel;\ “Hallowed be Thy Namo\ aud \Birthdays. The music will bo under the super­ vision of Nettie Claire Lewis and frill include solos, duets and choruses. The full programme will be givou next week. The prices o f admission have been placed at the low rate o f ! ten aud twenty ceuls, tho former for’children, tho lotter for adults. This has been done iu order to en­ able tho little ones, fur und noar, to attend in a body, as many of the tableaux have been arranged with tho Bpecial object in view of pleasing mo“' ” ',ent. the younger .generation. There may be some surprise at the statement that some ambitious geu- of the county seat bavoatthis early period touched a match to the kiodliDg wood under tho political pot ofFla thead county, and that from now on tho blaze will grow until the boil­ ing poiut has been .reached. T ile C olumbian would fail iu its duty nows disseminator if it failed to give an inkling of some things now going on in tho local political field. It is stated positively that W. J. Breuuan has Bcrved notice on tho republicans that bo expects the nomination for county attorney. The gentleman who gavo this information says that the chiefs of the party are slightly miffed at Bill for shying his castor into the ring while the snow is deop, but Bill is something of a believer iu the pro- vorb bearing on tho incident of the early bird and the worm that arose from its couch in tho groy dawn. Ho propose to take any dog-day changes, knowing full well that polit­ ical procrastination is often tho thief of glory and nominations. A very prominent populist gives T he C olumbian a tip that the present county atloruey, Sid. Logan, actiro candidate for tho district judgo nomination, and that several of the populist high chiefs aro already iug Logan medicine. Tho samo gen­ tleman informed the writer that oral othor Kalispell citizens wore mixiug Logan mediciue, “ but tho kiud they are mixin* is iutonded to mako. him Bick,” said he. From vory reliablo sources comes the statomeut that some pretty activo training for the judgeship is now going that the Kalispell republicans huye three moo whom, they say, just tit tho chair now occupied by Judge Pome­ roy. Knowing ones are predicting rodbot time in tho next republican convention, whore many delegates will carry knives in their right sleeves. A Snow Slide amt a Shortage. News of a fearful snowalido reach­ ed Boise from Rocky Bar. Two men, John Andrews und Robert Brainard, caught, but Andrews managnd to get out just as the slide started. Brainard was carried down. Fifty mon worked two hours, uftor finding where bo was, to get him out. Thu remarkublo feature of tho case is that Brainard was unhurt. It is the first instanco ou record in Iduho in which anyoue escaped after being buried ii a snowslide, even of a foot or two Braiuard was undor more tban sixt; feet of snow. Officials o f tho Haillov laud office have developed another shortage in iccouuts of T. E. Starrh, e ceiver of tho laud office, and o the best known mining uieu it part of tho stutc. His original short­ age amounted to $2,200. It now de­ velops he received $640 from a farm­ er iu payment of fiual proof on a desert claim und appropriated the money to bis own use. The farmer waited some time for the patent, and investigations at hoadquarters de­ veloped the fact that Starrh nevor turned in tho papers. Starrh is uuder indictment for the first short­ age. ___________ ONLY ONE GRADE. Drugs. T o is ill wai ‘grade—The Purest and Best. That is the only grade wo keep.

DRAWING GOLD FOR AMERICA Tho prospect of gold going from Loudon for the American loan caused a slight hardening in monoy i but the Bank of EDgland has such an immense stock o ' gold that such exports are unlikely to causo a dis- turbanco.
