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 state employment agency was creat- ed by the late legislature, to be connect- ed with the bureau of labor and immi • gration, which is now under the direc- tion of Commissioner Jas. H. Mills. Those 'h -siring to secure hired help of any kind can now apply to state head- quarters. Capt L. W.

If found within the confines of the re- serve without permission from the prop- er.authorities the offender will subject hi liaelf to arrest and punishment for ii,-oueying the order. I trovers' Journal: From the recent re o ort of the Montana board of stock commissioners it appears that Montana supplied nearly two-thirds of the west- ern range cattle marketed at this point during last year. Harry Lander, the ef- ficient brand inspector here, is of the opinion that Montana's beef output for 1895 will be nearly as large as last year. Those who desire to branch out into fruit growing should consult the advt. of the Payette Nursery Co., which ap- pears in another column. This firm makes a specialty of goods that are adapted to Montana climatic conditions, and has supplied fruit growers in all sections of the state. Shade and orna- mental trees and flowering shrubs are also included in their stock, and quoted at reasonable prices for well grown go. erorn Thursday's Daily.

HELENA, March 18.—The case of the City of Helena vs. Harry Brett came up for trial in Judge Blake's court this morning. A jury was obtained upon the first call. After the jury had been sworn in County Attorney Purcell read the in- dictment charging the crime of forgery in wilfully altering a city warrant, changing and raising its value from e7 to $70. This is the warrant mentioned in the first information tiled against Brett. By stipulation between counsel Brett admitted his guilt hut offered as a defense that the city had exceeded its limit of indebtedness and the warrants had no value, and there was consequent- ly no offense. Judge Blake said he would not instruct the jury unless the CARSON. Nevada, March 19. Andrew Mason, superintendent of the Nr w York attorneys in the case desired it.

Catarrh starts in the nasal passages, affecting eyes, ear and throat, and is, fact, the great enemy of the mucous membrane. Neglected colds in the head almost invariably precede catarrh, caus- ing an excessive flow of mucous, and if the mucous discharge becomes inter- rupted the disagreeable results of ea tarrh will follow, such as bad breath, se- vere pain across the forehead and about the eyes, a roaring and bnzzing sound in the ears and oftentimes a very offensive discharge. Ely's Cream Balm is the ac- knowledged cure for these troubles. WILL MAKING MANIA. Latest Rumor in the Contest for the Fair Millions. SAN FRANCISCO, March 19.—It DOW turns out that the reputed latest will of James G. Fair was left in charge of Mrs. Nettie L. Cravens, a principal in the public schools who was a great friend of Senator Fair. The will was written in the house of a Mrs. Haskins with whom Mrs. Cravens was living and in the pres- ence of both witnesses. The reason as- signed for keeping the new will so long in the background is that the custodian did not look at the date of the will when Fair died and when the old will was made public she thought it was one of later date. Today it is rumored that still another and later will is in existeoce. • Tile re port is that ten 'days before his death Fair executed still another heliographic will and entrusted it to the keeping of Mrs. Bessie Paxton, sister of the wife of Col. Wartield, proprietor of the Califor nia hotel. The late millionaire and the Warfields were warm friends. Mrs. Paxton has left the city for Los Angeles and the rumor cannot be verified. Ru- mors of other alleged wills were also heard, and it is hinted that it may be shown that t ie late millionaire had a mania for executing last wills and testa men's and entrusting them to the keep- ing of his lady friends. FIEN1J1,11 OUTRAGE. Farmer Round and Tortured by Five Masked Robbers. NEW CASTLE, Pa., March 19.—Word has reached here that five masked rob- bers entered the house of John McMil- lan, near Watts Mills, bound and gagged the hired man and three women and then waited nearly two hours for the return of McMillan. When he came he was bound to a board and leaned head down- ward against the wall while the robbers threatened him with instant death un- less he divulged be hiding place of his money. McMillan had deposited $1,000 in the brink the day previous. After burning his feet with hot coals and whipping him unmercifully the ruffians finally believed his story and departed. Mrs. McMillan and her daughters, who were compelled to witness the tsrture of MoMillae, are in a serious condition from fright. Denver MK a Cattle Market. DENVER, March 19. --The top price at the Denver stock yards was reached to- day by the sale of 14 carloads of steers from Neveda which brought $4 10 per niii i iired pounds. The cattle were load ed at R -no, Nev, and were in charge of J. M. Fulton, master of transportation of the Nevada, California & Oregon rail- road. Mr. Fulton says the train runs were mo-it satisfactory, coming via the Rio Grande Western. The stock will be shipped out to -night via the Burlington. This is the highest price yet paid in Denver by Len cents Harvested a Big Crop of Debts. ST. PAUI„ March 19.—The Walter A.

There is more catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put tegether, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. Fur a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, and pre bet ibed losel rem- edies, and by constantly tailing to cure with local treatwet, pionoUnced iL iii - curable. Science has proven catarrh t be a constitutional disease and therefore requires csnstitutienal treatment. Hell's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cherey & Co., Toledo, Onio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in threes from 10 drops to a teaspoonful..
