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.

It will he a long dark day before he and his mas- ter, Grover 1., strike such a. pudding as they now have It is stated that 10,941 acres of land formerly constituting the Fort Bridget military reservation, will be thrown open to _settlement under the home- stead laws Have the desires of the Northern Pa - chic been consulted on this question? The Hartford Pioneer is the name of r a new paper published In Hartford, this county. It is a handsome, clean, newsy sheet, and a credit to the great silver camp of Lump Gulch. John J. Harris Is editor and Robert G. Bailey man- ager. It is safe to say that if a petition were ; circulated asking Grover I. to resign it would be signed by at least three. fiTtltitlf not five-SIM - ha, of th6 - people of the United States. Would he do it? Oh, no Grove, old sharp, is neither a patriot Sr chump, when It comes to providing for Grover. Some of the Montana papers are quite facetious over the woman suffrage movement. There is one thing certain. if women are given suffrage. If they do not add to they will not detract from the respectability of elections, that is more than can be said for many male voters. The Pall Mall Gazette says \the suc- cess of the (United States) hian Is a mark of confidence in the great finan- cial ability of the United States.\ Some sharps in Butte, a few days since, worked a man out of a check for some thousands. They were very eager to get the check, and in accepting it. it Was \a mark of confidence in the finan- --- \Clal stability\ of the maker. They did not say, however, bow highly they esteemed the victim as a sucker. It Is amusing to see the nerve the re- publican papers display in \jacking up\ the deauvratic party for failure in loy- alty to silver. In fact it sometimes passes the point of eiMUsement and be- comes disgusting, for outside of the coast states very few republicans favor Witter. and It is the republican party that produced John Sherman, and his followers, who have placed sliver where it is now. Without republican schem- ing silver never would have been de- monetised, Republicans (as a party) the friend of silver! That's as good as the wolf that was the friend of the lamb. It has been recently demonstrated that a young lady of American birth who is ignorant both --as to education and lack of knowl- edge of society usages, and more than that, of illegitimate parent- age, if she is \well fixed\ financially and willing to pay well for the service. an secure the aid of a well known and prominent society lady of Eng- land and be successfully introduced to the \smartest sod t I \ ey nLondon.

'• basking ' the sunshine RS. CAROLINE DIACKUS A ., % , owned the small building next door to the church. It was a two-story structure with a stone front and a stockaded back yard too small for a gar- den patch, but large enough to catch a drip of sunshine. Mrs. idackus was the widow of a man who had hoped along for ten years as a bookkeeper In a wholesale house, and had died as bffilltiteeper; leaving an in- surance policy for $2,000 in a brother- hood organization. The only child Elea- nor, was II years old when her father died. Mrs. hiackus invested the bulk of her money in her little building next to the church, and pet a stock of goods in the front room below. It was hardly a shop. The visitor found it more like a sanctu- ary. For seven years Mrs. Mackus had sold books anti symbols to the parishoners, among whom she was held In high es- teem. -day-Rt-early--alhretzlf - fIlm ItlitHew , - standing in her doorway, saw a hew sigrr-across the wny. It was at the bead of the stairway leading to the basement under hir. Leutz's store, and read \S. Throberty, Grinding and Gener- al Repairs.\ _._ She yaw, .t.he Dew men, whom. she. sUP.; pOdeil to be the \S. Throberty\ mentioned Uri the sign, coming out of the basement or disappearing Into it several times dur- ing the day. Perhaps she would never have known any more about him If he had not hap- pened to stroll along her side of the street one summer evening just before dusk. Mrs. Mackus was at the window above and Eleanor stood In front of the store The mother hoard this conversation \Good evening. and are you the robin?\ \The robin? No sir.\ . \Abe but you are -the robin that I hear singing ...very day. You have a very swe:•I voice.\ \Thank you, sir.\ . \When. I nrat heard it I thought it wiu a bird.\ The child began laughing and Mrs Markus, who had stern notions of propri- ety, suddenly thrust her head out of tht wins:lotg and said .\Nallle. you MINIM talk to strangers.\ Mr. Throberty looked up in alarm, an\ after a moment's hesitancy said: \Yoe are right, ma'am; I was about to stet' her.\ Eleanor laughed again. and the neigh- bor started across the street, but hi suddenly turned and said: \It Is but right you should know, ma'am, that I meant no harm by complimentin' tht child. She's as sweet as her mother without the sharpness of the tongue. I am proud to be a neighbor to a lady like yourself, but I will tell you this, ma'am that you shouldn't have said It.\ With that he turned away and Mrs. Mackus was no angry with herself that she would not listen to Eleanor, who in- sisted that the neighbor had been en- tirely polite and proper. After that Mr. Throberty kept on bin side of the street. Mrs. Markup recalled more thaq once what he had said to her, and she felt that It wag due her reputation as an amiable creature to set herself right with Mr. Throberty. whoa. daily life, as It fell under her sbeervaticit, eontinued to proVe that he Was a man of quality. Perhaps she did rosily fear burglars: at any rate, after two places around the rorner had been broken into, she sent for,Mr. Throberty to come and put an eats& bolt on her front door. She was behind the showcase when he opened the door and softly stepped in, removing his hat as he did so. \Have you locked Up the youngster?\ he litked with a twinkle In his eye. \Invent you forgotten that?\ she re- plied. \I hoped you had. llo you know, / went to confetterlon about it.\ \Bless me, so did I,\ They both laughed and Mr. Throberty went to work putting on the bolt and keeping up a lively conversation with Mrs. Markus. \Have you much work?\ she salted, cautiously. \No. they don't bother me very often an' I'm glad of It -except in a i'ace like this,\ he hastened to add. • Presently the converattlon had advanc- ed to the point where Mrs. Muckus asked where he boarded. lie said he ate at a restaurant, and was tired of it. With that she asked him to stay to dinner. Eleanor upon her return from school was amazed to find her mother and the despised neighbor sitting opposite each .-ther, one vehemently complimenting - the dinner, and the other blushing and pre , testing feebly. Mr. Throberty said that Mrs. Iteutz should be went acmes the street to take lemons, lie had tried the Leutzea' cooking. and that's why he boarded al the reataurent • Broken I ItOtrelitela. of Vl t .-• residing • Hunt, met e MI 11 re an d t few o he. from a hors', , en his his just , I bad break It • ,•• .

THREE BUSINESS BUILDINGS And More of Both Brick and W.0041 Wit Soon Be a Matter of Reality -- Enormous Pay Rolls. Whitebait Is about to enter upon a building boom, independent of the con- struction work that will naturally be the outgrowth of the recent conflagra- tion, the three principal buildings hereafter mentioned having been pro- jected previous to the fire, as well al all of the minor improvements. To those who may not be aware of the cause for so much activity In and about Whitehall we will state that'in a few months she will have ENORMOUS PAY ROLLS monthly disbursed In and near her lim- its and jilready has one amounting to several thousand dollars per month - that of the Golden Sunlight mines, one Of the finest properties in Montana, the state of great and rich mines. In the very near future this pay roll will be in- creased by the addition of a smelter to its already great plant, which mean/ Th - e emplOytnenT bilirtareTis oralar- tional men. In less than one month more than ONE THOUSfND MEN will be employed in digging the great - ditch for the Parrot smelting company, imiskles hundretienWre in railroad and smelter construction. This is enough, without additional details, to account for anticipated lively times in and about Whitehall soon. THE NEW HOTEL. This building was projected before the fire and is not in any way calculitted to replace the Whitehall house. It will be built by A.Bund of Melrose and con- struction has already begun. It will be two stories in height, 28x70, with an annex of one story 18x40, the annex being designed principally for a barroom. There will be 20 rooms in the main building; it will be a frame, and built on the cony& facing the de- pot, next to Mr. Common's brick build- ing. When completed it will be leased. HIND & TEBAY. Tom Hind and John Tebay, as p`re- %lonely announced, will each build a twe-story building,west el- tee peel - office; the dimensions of each will be 25x40, and they will adjoin each other. making a tolid front of 50 feet. The lower story of the Hind build- ing will be used for dry goods purposes. and the second for a clothing sales- room. The first story of- the'Tebay building will be for mercantile purposes and the second story for office purposes. MILLER & Pk:URINE. These gentlemen are at present lo- cated In a shack adjoining their old stand. The burned building will soon be replaced by a brick. At present it will probably be but one story in height, but the walls will be built with a view to raising it another story as soon as possible. Other improvements, some of them of magnitude, are projected, but the Zephyr wishes to speak of only wharfs in sight. Among minor improvements are Frank Pleper's neat little cottage \just big enough for two: - a two-story addi- tion to W. Noble's reeeettoe t which will soon be commenced; Andy Lindberg and Bob Cochrane will build modest lit- tle homes on the south side as well as a number of others who will do the same. When they called on him for a speech he said. among other things. \By this happy union our friends have demon- strated anew the fact that In this age business interests are becoming amal- gamated, joining together for mutual pro- teetffin.
