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.

MONT., JULY 21, 1916 I IF I KNEW YOU and YOU KNEW ME If I knew you and you knew me, 'Tis seldom we would disagree; But, never having yet clasp'd hands, We might perhaps not understand That each intends to do what's right, And treat each other \honor bright.\ How little to complain there'd be, If I knew you and you knew Inc. If e'er we question by mistake, Or in our bill some error make, From irritation you'd be free, If I knew you and you knew me. Or when the checks don't come on time And patrons fail to write a line, We'd wait witLyut anxiety If I knew you znd you knew me.ts _ Or when complaints were made to us, That otherwise might start a fuss, We'd take it in good part you see, If I knew you and you knew me. With customers, some thousand strong, Occasionally things go wiong; Sometimes it's th,i, fault, sometimes we Are not quite right arid fail to see; But would not thaws mote pleasant be If I knew you and you knew me? Why dm not truso, rely, confide, Have business faith on either side, Eat h du his best ti alue give, Living ourselves, let others live, So any time you oane this stay just tome right in, most any day, Then face to face at' each shall see And I'll know you and you'll know mc The St. Paul Wholesale Merchant meeting his customer face to face on the recent sociability tour.
