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.

A TWO-YEAR OLD GUERNSEY IN MEAGHER COUNTY LOOKS LIKE A WORLD'S CHAMPION W. It. Fluhr. a deputy in Ow Ale, of the state dairy emumiseioner, owner of the Belt 1'elley Creamery has discovered over in Meagher counts a two-year old Guernsey heifer which looks to him like a world' s champion ,in the way of a dairy cow. 11'hile iworking in hie official capacity a week ago Monday at %Visite Sulphur Springs Mr. Flubs tested two cows for thr 'Meagher county farm, one a five yeas old and the other the heifer referred to. In writing the Timer' of tie' re markable test made, Mr. Pula said: \The heifer will not he two years :old until next March and has been hiv- ing milk Slime October ot this year so you are she is quite young. Hes mime is 'Ada's linside Lass,' and is a [granddaughter of 'Dora's Ada,' owned iby Wm. M. Jones of Waukeshn, NVis 'The loaf's made a test of 9.5 psr cent ;for one milking, which is the second 'highest test of its kind made, the Ihigh test, 10.2 per cent, being made by la Holstein owned by Franci o ,lone* of Syracuse, N. Y. \ 'Dora's Ada.' the grandmother of , the heifer, gave 704.5 pounds of butter fat last year, and 100.15 pounds in August of this year, nearly as numh iii louse month as most dairy cows pro- Pdtwe in a year. So you see that Slon- qansi has a very good chance of devel- frilling a world's champion in this !wi- lier. \ I am running these eows for the ad- Ivanced regiatery of the Guenisey oat- ,tle Breeders' Association, and the lest runs a full year.

What one man did when he discover- ed his capital was shrinking is told its the Americas' Slagazine: \A frieud let we itau a secret of his tinaneinl economy which strikes rue as valuable. Ile Is of middle age, with a email family, surd has an Income of r.3,500 a year. He has put by a few thousand dollars. Ills investments are In gilt edged securities. \At the end of every six months he figures out exactly the value of his property. Each share of stock, each bond is reckoned at its present market price. and the sale value of his house is placed at the lowest figure. To the current value of his estate he adds his life Insurame. The result is the capi- tal %%stitch would be available for the support of his wife and children should he suddenly die. \At the last three reckoulugs my friend found that his capital was shrluklug. There had been declines lit certain stocks aud bonds and a falling off In the value of his real estate. What did he do? Commiserate him- self? Not at all. Ile went to a life in- surance company and took out a policy large enough more than to cover the shrinkage in his capital. Comparative- ly speaking. It cost Um very little, but It added a neat sum to the value of his estate and guaratiteed an (mho- puired to his wife.\ PENS OF THE PAST. The Old Time Quill and the Art of Putting a Point on it. Quill pens are no longer used except In rare old fashioned instances. but people still use \penknives\ -you Can See the name any day in the cutlery store windows- but they do not use them to make or mend pens. iii feet where is there u luau or woman who hnows how to put a point on it quill! It was once an art which every man had to master, though women were generally bad at It. as they are now at sharpening pencils. In the old days the first question asked of a scluxrituaster was the one whether he was skillful in pointing quills, for he bud to sharpen the peus of his whole school and headentally in- struet his pupils in the art. Alas! There is 110 modern pen of steel or gold thnt is so smooth, so swift, so alluring '14 II /41)14 1111111 pest. The writer is very sure of that. Oa. his rather used to tell him so. The art of handwriting, has certainly declined since the quill pen went out of ase. The old fellows could really write. We still pay them an unconscious trib- ute by calling a writer a \quill driver\ and ['hawing the pen. when- ever we have to make an abstract rep- resentation of it. as a quill. -New York Sian.
