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.

Paris now recuperates on bone marrow. After the failure of Dr. Brown-Seguard to rejuvenate the world the search for the spring of perpetual youth has been taken up again with undiminisbed ardor. The agent with which the faded beauty seeks to bring back the roses to her cheeks sod the roundness to her form is bone marrow, according to r York Herald, marrow is the soft, fatty ap­ pearing matter found iuside the hol­ low bonea of auimals. It has beeti discovered that if bone marrow is not the elixir of youth, at least it is a powerful tonic. Boue marrow is served in Parisian restaurants, spread raw upon thin slices of bread doiuty manner, and it is said to bo a very pulatablo morsel. Every eats it who eau afford to buy it, and butchers are furuished with branch of industry. The long bones of the ox are split open, the marrow extracted, and it is then without further preparation. Dr. Renault of Paris prescribed hone marrow to an uuieiiilo patient as a tonio, with immediate and gratifying results. The news of its wonderful effects spread rapidly, at the preseut time marrow eatiug has become u fashionable fad. Now York is already iu danger of be­ coming a victim of the marrow habit, and medical rneu ou this side of tho water are discussing the subject with great tuterest.

But a ease has just come the surface wherein a board of commissioners are very anxious to ro- rse the rulo and hold office as long possible. The commissioners of Flathead county, Fred Cooke, W. G. Fitzpatrick and E. L. Preston have addressed a petition to Governor Rickards askiug that in the proclama­ tion that be will,issue for the coming election of officers state and county, he omit tho words county cornmis- ioners in that county, as they be- igvethat according to law they hold office until November, 1897. The petition recites various reasons why the opinion of tho petitioners they should hold office four years from the time they were elected, Nov. 1894. The petition while not open­ ing up the much mooted county commissioner question which has been so extensively ventilated of late, bound to bo a fruitful subject for discussiou in all the so-called now counties. As has been pre­ viously stated in these columns the commissioners in all the old counties hold until Nov. 1897, while their successors are to be elected at this year’s olection. The constitu­ tion provides that they hold office four years. Au effort was once made to auieud that document so that one should hold two yoars and the other two four years and although the peo­ ple voted for such amendment it failed to become legal through technicality in regard to the time of advertising. As the state milted November, 1886, at which time of course the constitution went into effoct the four year term of office would run as follows— 18S9, 1899, 1894,1897.

An ingenion machine for scrub­ bing floors has been invented, which is something like a lawn mower, runs upon four wheels, and above tho two front wheels is a tank which contains clean water, which may, of course bo heated, if desired, says Fcarsou’s Weekly. The water is supplied to rotary brushes at the bot­ tom of the machine, and those, rotat­ ing in an opposite direction to the motion of the machine itself, scrub the floor. At the back of th brushes and over the two buck heels is anotbor tank in which tho dirt and water is carried. The wiping apparatus consists of i endless baud of absorbent ma­ terial made especially *Ior tho pur poso.
