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.

It is commonly supposed that volu minous smoko caqfiot hover about a spot whore there is no blaze. Russell Alger ought to bo a suc cess as secretary of war if that iy little presidential bee doesn’t got to buzzing so hard in his take up too much time and attention. Tho Aroostook Leader says: “Some of our young peoplo who desire to do some hugging and kissing are talk ing of organizing a dramatic club.

Tho students of the Groat Falls high school havo just purchased a $100 piano with money raisod by socioty duos, entertainments and subscriptions. Those young peoplo will make thoir mark in the world, never foar. Again ’this strange, anomalous stylo of nowspapor amenity comes to the front. Tho Glasgow Record oponly accuses R. X.

Tho honso, by an unanimous vote, pro claimed tho Record man a villifier and a falsifier, but this action wasn’t noodod. None of us Montana editors get druuk and tho world knows it. NEVADA'S SHAME. Novada has distinguished herself all right. Her legislature has passed and her governor has signed a bill providing that prize fights with gloves not lighter than four ounces may bo hold in Nevada upon payment to tho shoriff of tho county in which tho contest is to take place of $1,000 for a license, and tho pre sentation of a certificate from two regular physicians that tho contes tants aro iu perfect physical health. Nino-tenths of tho license money goos into tho sfhto 'treasury aud iho balance to tho county whore tho con- tost takes placo. Prizo Qyhtiug lias been forbidden in every olhor state of tho union. It has been driven out of Louisiana, whore it onco flourished, and Florida rofusos to . countonnuoo it. So do Arkansas and Texas. Even Mexico, tho homo- of tho bull fight and of :h licouso iu other matter's, has declared against it. But Nevada hard-up and opouly admits that it tho money sho is after. Sho has mado up her miud to play tho c tosan aud sho rather glories than otherwise in her shame. and tho now chemical engine saved it from destruction. Tho report of tho.stato boiler in spector shows that thoro aro 1,219 li- coiiHod engineers of all grades in tho stato. Receipts last year were SG.90G d tho os ponses $7,200.

HIS MARRIAGE POSTPONED. Young Mr. Seeley, of Now York, about whom so much has appeared in tho pnpors of late, is still unmar- riod. With two friends ho is hold by tho grand jury to account forgo- ings-ou nt a stag dinoor ho gavo nt Shorry’s famous restaurant. Tho 'story in briof is something attor tho fashion of tho Decameron. Herbert Baruum Seeley, grandson of tho great showman, on the occasion of n pro-marital spree, hired Littlo Egypt, Annabollo Moore aud others to dance “in tho altogether,” dition mado famous by tho adorable ‘Trilby.” This doloctablo fact having leaked out, tho Now York police, with a sub- limo disregard of tho rights of monoy without brains, actually made a raid o swell dinner and stopped tho Mr. Seoloy tried to got tho upper hand by demanding tigation of tho police captain’s out rageous conduct. This resulted in acquittal and the turning of tho tables upon tho young blood. Shelby Juncti of diphtheria. Tho herder and band of shoop lost Tetoti county during the recent storm hove been found.

Tho Butto & Boston Mining com pany's property, consisting of fifty- three mining claims, smoltors, con centrator, und, in fact, everything be longing to the company, was sold by Receiver John F. Forbis to E. Rolliug Morse, chairman of tho Butto & Boston reorganization Tho Broudwator county bill went through the house with a rush. This may bo a wiso and just measure in its olf but thoro aro many more of those division schemes to come up, some of which appear to be of ad vantage to office-seokers only. Butte, with open-handed, if mis taken, generosity, attempted to food and clotho a batch of Godforsaken Indians campod at her gates, the Indians traded off each and ovory donation for forty-rod whiskey aud agaiti revel' iu filth and fira- wator. President-elect McKinley requests that, “with tho appra&al of the sub scribers,” tho $50,(XI) which it was ■ proposed to spend upon the in augural ball bo givdp instead to charitable objects. Subscribers deed! They might not object but Mark Hanna would and his objec tions go. I hereby challongo William Mad den to fight his dog Butto against tho Drew dog at 24 pounds, givo dr take one pouud, for $250 to $500 a sido. This is splitting tho weight on your own challenge.—Denis O’Brien. Right in tho city, of Butte, too, of whoso high grade of morality hear bo much through her uo papors. As a tribute to providence, who saved his Store from destruction by fire, John Wauamaker is goiug to build a ’ now Presbyterian church. The dispatches said:, “Many times total destruction was threatened and the store was saved only by t remen dous work by the local department and his own. store iirh brigade.” Funny it never occurred -to, W maker to. reward these faithful ef forts. Perhaps that would bo fering with -Providence’! buainoss.

Standard: Dubois trndod for Hoitfold in Idaho; prizo lights licensed in Novada beenuso tho stato is hard up for money; public gamb ling likoly to bo licousocMu Montana because tho public treasury noeds tho rovoutio. By tho way, what was that slurring aud unjust goldbug remark made in tho oast about the mental nod moral quality of tho silvor states! Avuut Courior: Tho plan building tho stuto cnpitol with v rants drawn nguiust tho luud grant fund doesn’t appear to be such a dead fuilurc, after all. So far tho ipitol commission hns boon able to dispose of uourly $100,000 of tho wi i, for which tho stato can point with more or less prido to a rangnifi- co ut structure—on paper—and partly completed hole iu tho ground. Butto Minor: Representative Gil l’s bill making it a misdomoauor for anyono to pay a whisky bilfts grow ii popularity every moment, course such a bill would work havoc to future generations, but for tho politicians who are behind in oloc- tion accounts it would como ns swoet and welcome boon. Make it misdomeunor for a man to pay a bn bill and a folouy for a bnrkeoper to rofuso a customer credit and tho problem will bo solved. ------------------------------ IN MONTANA TOWNS. * It. A.
