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.

RANGERS EQUAL CANADIANS Yellowstone Park Superintendent De- clares Uncle Sam's Troopers Just as Worthy of Praise. Livingeton.—All the romantic glam- of and hero worship that Americana have lavished on the Canadian Mount- ed police can be given to troopers of Uncle Sam's National park rangers, declares Colonel L. M. Brett, superin- tendent of Yellowstone park, who Is engaged in building up the ranger ser- vice and training its men. Colonel Brett, who is an army of- ficer, admits the rangers may not have to contend with some of the dangers that cross the path of the mounted police, but he believes they deserve boosting by magazine writers as much as their Canadian brothers. \To be able to render the best ser- vice in patrolling, the park ranger must be properly armed, mounted and clothed. He must feel that his weap- ons are superior to those in the hands of any outlaw whom he may oppose; his mount must be swifter, and his clothing adequate to protect him against the rigors of climate,\ said Colonel Brett. \A park ranger about to start on kis journey, in addition to his arms, his horse and equipment, should have a piece of canvas with which he can make a canvas shelter against any weather; rations ample for the jour- ney, cooking utensils, field glasses, a map of his park and contiguous terri- tory, compass, notebook, pencil, ax, Brstaid packet and telephone tester. As soon as he leaves the range sta- tion he becomes a scout who must LBO his wits and energy against those whose life is spent in the open. \Men who will lend themselves con- scientiously to this work are not corn - .ion, and in their raining it is of great- osi. importance that their faculties of observation be cultivated to the limit.\ THROW GOLD FROM WINDOW Alleged Thieves Scatter Coins When Detected —$2,500 Recovered — $1,000 in Diamonds Missing. Butte.—Robbers entered the room of John Gurry, state agent of a \punch board\ concern,. at the Butte hotel, at midnight, and stole $3,500 in $2.50 gold pieces and $1,000 worth of diamonds. A chambermaid who saw two men enter Gurry's room called the police. James Bourgoyne and Thomas Costel- lo were arrested in Bourgoyne's apart- ments in the same hotel, but not un- til after the police had burst in the door. In the meantime the pair had drop- ped enough gold pieces in the hotel court to fill a wash bowl and water pitcher, all of which the police recov- ered. While being taken to police head- quarters the men attempted to escape, and there was another sprinkling of gold coins. A crowd assisted the po- lice in recovering the money. At the station $100 in gold pieces was found in one of the suspects' shoes, and $40 more in the socks of the other, making a total of $2,500 re- covered. The diamonds have not been found.

The letter to Mr. Hilburn did not state what the program is, but it is naturally causing a great deal of con- jecture, and many are of the opinion that it means the commencement of excavation and construction this fall. An appropriation of $100,000 ,was made by congress in 1910 for the con- struction of a federal building in Kal- ispell. County Wins 39 Premiums.

He then left a note of warning against pursuit and started off, heav!ly armed. Citizens succeed- ed in surrounding him while he was hiding. Baldwin seemed to recover his senses and realize what he had done, as he wrote his will on the rim of his hat and left everything he owned to Mr. Winnett. lie then shot himself.

But the second - year men have little to gloat over in their flag -pole contest, for the rules of the uneven contest made the new- comers' task virtually an impossible one. Sheridan Co. \Drys\ Persistent. Plentywood.— Even though the \drys\ In Sheridan county failed to get the county commissioners to grant a special election, it does not appear that the crusade against saloons has ended by any means.
