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.

Shortly before neon yeaterday the father went to church. Mary, going Into the kitchen, found Harriet pouring carbolic acid into a glass of water. Mary watched her Me- ter until she put the glass to her lips, then she dashed It from her hand.e. After that there was a struggle between the two women, for Harriet instated that she Must kill herself, and tried to jump out of the window. The cries of Mary alarmed the neigh- bors, who hurried into the house. After half an hour Harriet became calm. All the neighbors left them except two wom- en, who said they would stay during the afternoon. Mary In telling them about the troubles of her life became so excited that suddenly she jumped on the sill of the open window and would have thrown herself to the courtyard three stories be- low had not the women preeent grasped her about the waist and dragged her back. It was Sister Harriet now Who quieted her sister, but Mary grew worse until Harriet, in her efforts to calm her sister, became hysterical. When the fath- er returned late in the afternoon he saw that affairs were beyond his control and called in the police. The asters begged to be given pistols with which to kill themselves. They also pleaded with the officers to kill them. When the doctor came the women became calm. They said they knew perfectly well that they were Insane, and were anxious to go to the hospital.
