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.

If reasonable care is used, however, and Chamberlain’s Cough Bemedy takoo, all dabgor will be svoidod. Among the tens of thous ands who have used this remedy for la grippe, we have yet to loarn of a single caso having resulted in pneu monia, which shows conclusively that this remedy is a certain preven tive of that dread disease. It will effect a permanent cure iu less time than auy other treatment. The 25 and 60. cent sizes for sale at Kon- nody's Drug Store. AS TO TEXT BOOKS. Iiistractious to Veters Relative to the Law jnst Passed. State Superintendent E. A. Carle ton bus issued the following circular letter from his office in Helena: ‘The govoruor bas approved tbo school book bill, which provides for a text book commission composed of seven members, who shall select a uinform series of text books to be used in all the public schools of the stato for a period of six years from J uftor Sept. 1,1897. The bill pro vides for wbat is culled local adop- ‘To secure free school books it necessary in each unincorporated town or city for 10 legal rotors to peti tion the school trustees at least 15 duy8 before tho 3d clay of April next, which is the tinio of the school elec tion. Said petition should request tho trustees to submit to tho district at the oustiing election tho question whether or not the school books shall be furnished free to the pupils attending school. If tho district comprises an incorporated city . .. there must be a petition signed by at least 100 voters in tho district. The school election occur? on tl of April and this petitiou must be presented at least 16 days before said election. Those districts adopt ing freo school books will get thorn at least 20 per ceut loss than the books can bo sold to pupils in tricts which do not adopt free books. The dealers chnrge from 20 to 33 1-3 por cent for tho handling of the •‘Tbi* Miiorm-mi p-'ifil .win le The districts adopting frou books « ill haro tho same shipped to the school board, and through the school board they will be distributed to the teach ers, and by the teachers to the pupils. \Evory argument of economy, therefore, is in favor of evory district adopting free books. Improved scholarship, belter attendance and larger enrollment always follow tho adoption of free school books. 'Under tbo text book bill, tho isionors will meet in this office at 12 o’clock, noon, on the 3d day of May, 1897, and adopt a uniform se ries of text books to be UBed in our schools foe u term of six years.” Superintendent N. T. Conklin of this county adds the following re marks: \I earnestly urge all school districts to carry out tho recommen dation of Mr. Carleton. After a dis trict bas voted for freo books, a tax to pay for tbo same will be levied on tho property in tho district; and this tax, after the pupils have been sup plied once with books, will bo very light as the books will be used until THK OTHER FEl-LOWH. Western News: While Mr. White- sides, in hit minority report roasting tho capitol commission, may not have confined himself strictly to that part of the ovidouco submitted to tho in vestigating committee, the fact re mains that tbe state has exchanged forty nino thousand large, symmetri cal dollars for an unsightly holo in the ground that cost a fow paltry hundred. This akrno is pretty good ovidenco that there is something rot- ton somewhere. Inter-Mountain: The name of Grovor Cleveland will not be cher ished in the west. In this groat em pire in domain it has become tbe synonym for greed, for selfishness, for that hardness of heart and repro bacy of mind which damned Ephraim of old, and for thst indifference to tho welfare and happiness of the peo ple displayed by the dovil alone. We say tho name of Grover Cleveland is the synonym for all these. If un justly, tbo people will see their orror and make all reparation in their power; if justly, may tho Lord forgive Grov- ■ Cleveland, for the Doople never ill. Vale Cleveland! Whitehall Zephyr: Congressman Hartman bas succeeded in getting a bill through tbo house establishing a land office at Kalispell. Whitehall opeds one fully as bad as Kalispell, mid fuuisb more business forit. But people here bavo not the nerve to ask for such au unnecessary luxury. Butte Miner: Now that a begin ning has been made in the direction of purer politics, let tbe reform be complete. Do. not punish Martin \Buckley and giffi lUXOTy an ~ giveness to others infinitely guilty. Do not select an amateur for punisbment and wink at the whole sale work of tho professionals. Do have one man walking tho streets a respected citizen while another loss guilty is branded and disgraced. Do not have it said that where one man punishod a hundred go free. Strike at the root of tbe evil. Brand all alike. Compel every guilty man to shoulder his share of tho burden. Do humiliate the childreu of ono briber while thoso of another strut with self conscious superiority. Striko at tbe whole baud of corruptionists, for they are onemies of their country and by poisoning the fountain head polluto the entire stream. Standard: If it is the intention to make the public believe that Buckley the ODly sinner, and tho othors 3 all saints, the legislature will find itself badly mistaken. Missoulian: Tho stato will bo represented at tho Omaha exposition and will pay $15,000 for tbe privilege. Marcus Daly will also pay $15,000 for the privilege of having the state represented. A _ fund of $30,000 ight to be sufficient to pay tho sal- ies of three commissioners and leave about $3.60 to bo expended for first-class exhibit. Biitte Minor: With Sherman as secretary of Stato, Gage ia tbo treas ury department and Bliss holdiug tho interior portfolio^the interests of all the commoff people—fanners, laborers and miners—will be safely and sacredly guarded. So safely aud sacredly, indeed, that rill ever bear of them. B i l i o u s n e s s Is caused by torpid liver, which prevents tlon and penults food to ftneen: uj U putrify In the stomach.
