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.
— FUR THE CHILDREN My Girl. The dear little childten who pass all day I watch from my window above -- Darlings, with blue eyes and black and sray„ But one little gut I love. It isn't because of her lovely face: Her hair is as straight as a suing. It isn't because of some wondrous gram , She's a round little dumpy thing. But she always mothers the littlest tots And is kind to the weak and small. Swift on her two busy feet site trots To comfort and help them all. Once when the circus was passing by And the band was blaring along At the sound of a baby's piteous cry She turned from the hurrying throng. She lifted the baby and kissed the smart. (I saw from my window above.) She lost the circus, but won my heart. This dear little girl I love. —St. Nicholas. A Bird magician. In some parts of Europe the tourist may have a little bird called the slit - kin pointed out to him by a peasant, who says: \That bird practices magic. When he builds his nest he puts into it a certain stone which makes it in- visible. Any one who could find this stone in a Makin's nest would also be Invisible as long as he carried the stone in his pocket. When 1 was a boy I used to watch for the slaking building their nest. and whenever I saw one 1 would climb the tree to get the stone. Hut the nest had always be- come invisible before I could reach R.\ It is quite true, as the peasants any. that you may see a sisidn busily mak- ing its nest, and yet, when you crawl out on the very same branch where he was at work, you cannot find the nest at all. But there Is no magic In the siskin's methods of building. He simply makes his little home of material whose color exactly matches Its surroundings. Generally he hides his nest in the branches of a fir tree, front which the long tufts of lichen hang like an old man's beard. The nest Itself Is a small, round struc- ture, and when covered on the out- side with lichen and built to nestle close among the drooping lichen gm c ths of the fir tree it cannot be seen at n11 from below. Even when one era wls out on the limb from which It hangs, oftentimes he cannot find the nest. because It is so perfectly con- cealed by a branch as to escape no- tice even at close quarters—I\. K. Noyes In Volta Review. Kitten Rescues Girl. We often hear of dogs and horses saving the lives of human beings, but it is seldom. indeed, that a kitten manages to do this. Yet that Is just what a pet kitten did for its little mistress out in Venice. Cal. The two had been for a walk and had been gone for some time when the kitten came home alone. it went imtnedlately to the girl's mother and began to \me -ow - and to do all kinds of things to attract the woman's attention. When it saw that it was noticed it started off. but the girl's mother (11(1 not follow it at first. The kitten persisted. however, and finally the woman followed it and kept at the heels of the kitten as it led the way to an amusement pier. There the little girl was found hang- ing head downward from n large spike She had fallen front the pier. and her clothing had caught to the spike. Life guards restated her Immediately. and she was untie the worse for what was nearly a very serious accident. Odds end Evans Game. This Is lin Interesting little gain , ' for two players.

This has been a great year for apples and politicts. The democrats gets the plums. The year 1912 is likely to go down in history as the year in which busi- ness refused to be scared by a national campaign. While Great Falls businessmen are fighting about having two telephone systems, Geyser would be thankful if t had one. Watch Geyser get one in a short time. A dog that will do the work a dog should do on a farm, is worth his keep and tax, but the worthless cur that chases things he should leave alone, should be destroyed in the cheapest possible way. President-elect Wilson and family are going away to Bermuda for a winter's vacation. They will be gone until about the first of the year when they will return and commence to get acquainted with the ways of living as the first people of the land. Just to show that his heart is in the right place, President Taft invited the Wilson family to spend a day last week at the White House, The in- vitation was accepted and the Wilsons spent the day at their future home. They report a good time. It is peculiar but true, that when one feels as if the west had not treated him right - , he will go back east and try and think he is satisfied. Sooner or later he returns and is louder in his praise of the west than ever before. Two cases of this kind happened in Geyser this week. With a democratic president and ; majority in the House and Senate, and an extra session of congress pending, the democrats have a chance for their lives. If their arguments are logical at all, they now have a chance to show that their way of thinking and running things are superior and let us hope that they are, and that this country will enjoy a season of prosperity never before witnessed. So mote it be. Prof. E. W. Clark is in communica lion with representative stockmen for the purpose of forming a Stock Breed- ers' Association to improve Montana live stock. A meeting will be held in Bozeman in January in cor.netited with the Farmers' Week and Country Life convention. Courses in live stock and dairying will continue thru the entiae week, A plan to offer prizes for the best animals under one year old the progeny of pure bred sires is being considered. The governor of this state, persuant to a wise custom, has set apart one day in the year as \Fire Day.\ The custom is a wise one and probably has saved thousands of dollars worth of property. The idea of Fire Day is not to see how many fires can be had, but to see how many possible fires can be prevented. While this day was l'uesday, it behooves all property owners of Geyser and vicinity to lo3k about their premises and remove rub- bish of all kinds, see that their chim- neys are clean and in good order, and all refuse removed, thus lessening the chances for a fire. An ounce of pre- ventative is worth a whole fire com- pany. Teacher's Examination. On the last Friday and Saturday of this month, November 29, 30, there will be a teachers' examination held in the east side court room of the court house at Great Falls commenc- ing at 8:30 on Friday morning Novem- ber 29. Third grade subjects will be given on Friday and first, second and professional subjects on Saturday. All teachers who are teaching on per- mits are requested to attend this ex- amination. ANNIE A.
