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.

ORATION BY DAISY KELLOGG. When. traveling through the couatry what is more pleasing than of. the country houses, and groups of merry children romping ia the yard of a cosy home! On the other hand, how deSolate and lonely the sight of an old house makes one—a house which once rang with the noisy shouts and laughter of little ones—to find it entirely un- oveupied except, perchance, by the rats, squirrels, or, it may be, by a bird family. But there are many such to be found, and especially in the hill districts of tlle New Eng- land: states, onee full to overflow- ing With a crowd of merry young> sters. One. takes the western fe ver, and his glowing reports ef his successes call one and then an- other from the old homestead. Since the stampede to the West has subsided and the people have be- come more settled, they begin again to look around them and are amazed to see the number of farms that have been abandoned. One may ask, ‘*Whereare these abandoned farms, and how has it come te be 86?”’ In looking around us we may here and there a place which is un- occupied here in the West; but the typical abandoned farms are found almost entirely in the hill ceuwatry of New England. The principal for tliis state of affairs may be said to be the opening of the great, fertile révions of the West and the devel- opment of the manufacturing in- dustries nearer home, Thus the rural folk have been called from the lonely farms to the more at- tractive fields of the séveral em- ployments, Let us faney that we van see an old lady whese hair, is snowy white faltering-down a nar- row path to take the morning coach to the home of her daughter; her husband has died and she, lacking the physical strength, cannot at- tend to the farm duties, arid is now leaving the old home, taking with her many long-cherished memories her early married life, the little children, the lusty lads and lussies, the breaking of home ties. The old farm having been left the stone wall begins to crumble, the roof to sag and at last to fall in and, perhaps, a tree springs up within the ruins of the old founda- tion froma nut dropped, it may be by a child years ago, or perhaps more recently by # busysquitrel. |The broad roads leading through | the cultivated lands grow narrow} the forest encroaches on the house; ithe birds may be seen nesting in the broken chimney, which was causes | built from the caving cellar and is oftentimes the sole remaining ruin of the house. Clumps of tansy, rose- mary, and even tiger lilies or the | long-loved roses may be found. By the spring the stone milk-house, whichawas built more substantially, covered with long rows of shining | pans, may still bé seen. * kinds of wells that yet “remain, while on others the drinking water must have been carried from the spring. On the more remote farms we find the family burial ground witlr its queer tombstones made from the rough granite, free- stone or soapstone, whichever may have been most. sbungant in that section of the country. With their quaint, home-carved epitaphs, now nearly obliterated by the mosses and lichens, some have fal- len and are half buried by the grass. which comes. “creeping, creeping everywhere.’’ Here, too, are the weeping willows whose drooping branches mark many an ancient cemetery. Not only farms, but shops and mills, have,been deserted; and the energy and capital which they rep- resent have been absorbed by much larger and more efficient enter- prises. However, there is a° brighter side to this question. © Farming is not. deélining in New England, 9 been abandoned. One reason for the interest now the sight of flowers in the windows | see\ with its soapstone shelves, once} On some places there are queer} although many of the farms. have; shown in the old farms is the cols ae even ebrating ef “Old Home Day. In’ the early’fall a date is set und many who have left the county commu- nity make it a point to return and spend a day or two visiting and feasting with old home friends. The wealthy farmer, the million- aire, many a city dovtor, preacher and college professor, all pay trib- ute to the surroundings and teach- ings of childhood. In some instances the land is be- ing tilled more thoroughly then of old. The buildings only have fal- len into disuse. The land near the railroad is being bought by the rich: and transformed ito beauti- ful villas of cosy resorts for those who are sick and tired of the hot, dusty and noisy streets of the city. Many farms are bought by special- ists who are restocking them, One turns his attention to steck-raising, and there May be seen 0 the beau- tiful meadows cattle, contentedly chewing their cuds in the shade of ancient trees, Another is interest- ed in the breeding of horses, An- other raises several species of fine sheep for their costly wool, while his neighbor has a large bee colony. In some places the old orchards have been renovated. The old, scarred fruit trees haye been re- placed by younger ones which bear so pyofusely thet the owner, as well as his neighbor, reaps bounti- ful rewards for bis hard toil. And all these, in the early spring, share in a common industry and drink the maple nectar which brings them sweet and golden harvests. The forests, stealing up into the house plot, are encouraged in their advance, for the vak, walnut and birch timber is used for the manu- facture of -household furniture. The ledge, which was the des- pair of the grandfather, has proved a veritable treasure to his descend- ant in providing a quarry of most beautiful marble or_pink, green or gray gritnite for building purposes. Booth Tucker offers a solution for the redemption of these deso- late farms. He, for the Salvation Army, buys land which aré placed families from the slums of the cities, where they may make an honorable living; and if more |persons who are able would do llikewise, as the good book says, ‘The wilderness and the solitary | place shall be glad. for then; ‘and ithe desert shall rejoice, and” blos- gom as the rose,”’ queen Obituary. Harry Ivan Miller, the second son of Harvey and Celeste Miller, was born at Waterloo, June 29, 1801, His parents then lived in| . Reema valley, where they have since lived. Ivan has not been his illness ef about a year ago. lis late sickriess was caused by a fall from a hay-stack in December. | This resulted in curvature of the jspine which, with other compli- cations, caused his death. For three ~~ months he was a | great’ suffer His parents took lhim> to WI “ hall, then to Butte, that he might have the best of medical care; but-every effort proved in vain, and on May 24, 1/1903, while in Buttes God took |him out of his suffering, The funeral services Were held in the Christian church in White- jhall and were conducted by Rev Walter Jordan, pastor of the Christian church nt Helena. During his short life Ivan was an’ affectionate, obedient child at home. At school he was a favorite among his playmates. He will Jong be remembered by them, and never be forgotterK by his relatives. The little body was laid to rest. in the Fish CreeR cemetery. <A large assemblage of sympathizing friends gathered to attend. the funcral and extend their on | ” | well since sympathy to the grief-stricken parents.

Probably few people know that the see was Franklin or that in 1788 the salaries of the officers of this common- wealth were pald in pelts, but the’ fol- lowing is ‘a correct copy of the law: “Be It enacted by the general assem- bly of the sinte of Franklin, and it is hereby enacted by authority of the saine, that frdm andafter the lst day of January, 1788, the salaries of this commonwealth be as follows—to wit: “Ilia excediency the governor, per an- hum, 100 deerskins, “His honor the chief justice, deerskins, “The secretary to his excellency the governor, 500 raccoon skins “County clerk, 800 beaver skins. “Clerk of the house of commons, 200 raccoon skins, . “Justice's fee for serving a warrant, one minkskin,” At that time the state of Franklin extended to the east bank of the Mis- sissippi river, and en the west bank was that great inknown forest region of Loulsiana, It was then a “terra Ti- cognita,” save a few canoe landings and Indian trading posts on the river banka. {[t was known as the district of Louisiana and in 1805 was made the territory of Loulsiana, The btate of Franklin, which be- came Tennessee tn T7060, Waa almost as little known, The now great city of Memphis was a mere trading post and was not laid out as a village untl! 1820, Pelts were as plentiful in those dags as pennics and much better distributed for purposes Of currency and barter, The ploncers were perhaps as bappy andas.we!l @gntented as la the average citizen now.—Arkanens Gazette. 600 OCOOKING HINTS.

Ata Sunday school in north Wales a little girl of the name of M, A. Priteh- ard, during the year 1901, committed to memory and repeated 2.006 verses from Scripture. She is only twelve years old and bad previously learned by heart the whole book of Proverbs. In Church, She sat on the sliding clighilon, The dear wee woman of four; Her feet in her shiny slippers Hiung dangling over the floor, She meant to be good; she had promised, And so, with her big brown eyes, She stared at the meeting house windows And counted the crawlihg flies. eihe looked far up at the preacher, But she thought of the honeybees DronBig away in the blossoms That whitened the cherry trees. She thought of tlie broken basket, Where, curled up in a dusty heap, Three sleek, sound puppies, with fringy ears, Lay snuggled and fast asleep. Ther a sudden ripple $f laughter “ Ran over the parted lips Bo tuick that she could not catch It With her rosy finger tips. The people whispered, “Bless the child!\ As each ene waked from a nap, But the dear wee woman hid her face Fer shame in her mother’s lap. |PEOPLE OF THE DAY Were as Plentifal a@ | original tame of the state of Tennés- | It will be found that the | the improvement in. flavor of the soup | has | haunts of | inches,.aed tn its feathers it stands} branches Of a fir in search of its insect | Will Carry on Pather’s Work.
