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.

Geyser hit the hall at will and pounded out a score of 13 to 8 against the visitors. Only in the fourth and eighth innings did the Ram- blers ramble as far as the home base, when wild throwing on the part of the locals was responsible for letting in a number of runs. Pitcher Frank Prop- er struck out nine and allowed three bases on balls, while Anderson of Spion Kop struck ont eight and allowed only one man to walk. Hruby of the locals was the star batter, scoring two clean home home runs, while Proper also annexed a four base hit. Much disa- ',ointment was felt not only by the Gey- ser team but the Ramblers as well that the entire team was not present, as a much, stionger game would have been played by both sides.

Agreement on 3 -Year Bill Is Reached in Committee and Out- look is Bright for Passage of the Measure The progress. of the Borah three- year homestead bill is being watched with the closest interest by many home- steaders of this vicinity. A late dis- patch from Washington says: The conference committee in charge of the Borah -Jones three-year home- stead bill today reported what is said to be the final agreement, and which will be reported back to both houses in a day or two. The main features of the original bill are retained and all objectionable proposed amendments rejected. As the bill is agreed upon, the homestead period is reduced from five to three years and entrymen are permitted leave of absence not to ex- ceed five consecutive months each year, being required to notify the local land office when they leave the land and the date of their return. The cul- tivation clause is incorporated, which requires the entryman to cultivate not less than one -sixteenth of his entry the second year and one -eighth the third year, before receiving patent. The bill will apply to all entries, including en- larged homestead entries and all pend- ing entries. Entrymen who have not yet re- ceived patent are given the privilege of completing their proof onderthe three- year bill or continuing under the old law as they may prefer. Senator Borah is mach pleased over the long -delayed agreement of the conference commitee, and is now hopeful that the bill will arm had been finally pass and become a law in the shot off In a skIr- form in which it is now left by the tnIsh with Jenni- son and his Kansas Tniders only a short time prior to this date.

Teddy and Wilson Carry New Jersey Newark, May 28.—One of the most surprising victories Theodore Roosevelt has won in the primaries since he began his campaign for the republican presi- dential nomination was recorded by the republican voters of New Jersey. In- dications from incomplete rettimS are that he carried every congressional dis- trict in the state as well as the state at large and that all of the 28 men New Jersey will send to Chicago will be Roosevelt men. Governor Wilson won his own state against a strong opposi- tion. eeaded by his political enemies within the state and appears to have 24 of the 28 delegates including the dele- gates at large. Colonel Roosevelt's indicated plural- ity on the preferential vote is 111.1810, Senator La Follette made a showing in every county. but his vote as far as counted indicated that he would not get more than 2 per cent of the total.
