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.

Falls, last week. : Paul Schoelkoph, the N:P. freight conductor missing from Forsyth for over a month, hes been heard from at Des Momes, lowa. Je M, Burlingame, secretary of} the Republican state central com- mittee, has sent his resignation to chairman Auld, having been appointed ‘receiver of the Great Falls land office. A Washington special to the Standard says:—The reports of the conditions of the national banks of Montana on April 30, as re- ported to the comptroller, shows: Loans and disbursements; $11,- 642,491; gold coin, $879,712; total specie, 1,094,878; lawful money reserve, $11,503,291; indivudal deposits, $14,157,129. Herbert H. Matteson, cashicr of the first National bank of Great Falls was indicted by the federal grand jury on ninety counts last week. Matteson is alleged to have” made away with $197,000 of The indictment. is a document of 155 pages, cover- ing every feature of the cashier's confessed delinquency. : SEE If all the people of the United States were formed into a proces- sion marching five abreast, 10,000 to the mile, the procession would be 8,000 miles long. _ Marchiing at the rate of twenty-five milesa day, it would take them nearly a year to pass any given point. \-Nowany native or foreign critic whospeaks of commercialism, — militar'sx, plutecratic alism as characteristic tendencies, reviewing this proces- sion, might wait for weeks and sometimes for months before a single > person passed the grand- American stand of his critism to whom his} remarks would apply or who would know what he was talking about | if they were repeated to him. The reason that things so seldom turn out according to the proph- ecies of those who survey niftional tendendies is because their criti- cisms relate tojthe conduct of afew hundred or. a few thousand indi- viduals, and not to the vast multi- tudes, the industarious millions who stay at home and mind their; own business, and who are not swept off their feet by any current of opinion, action, of influence. The~ smaller influential classes shape immediate policies and cause startling things -to happen; but the- main drift of the national life is no more affected by them than the ocean currents are changed by “the steamers that. ply through them, and cross them, leaving a-wake of foaming waters, When consequences declare themselves, the people take the matter in hand, and act according to established principles and traditions. —The Christian Register. Mrs. William Smith received the sad news last Saturday of the death of her brother, John H. Rourk, who died. in | Central America. Mr. Rourk was one of thé pioneers of Dillon. He wasen- gaged in the furnitiire and sheep business. the first three or four years after theestablishment of the town. He grew tired of the west, and selling out Ins business went east, for a time, and later went to central America where he died.— Dillon Tribune. ‘J. J. Ruban, the first convert to the Mormon faith from France, was burned to death in a fire which destroyed his home in Salt Lake City last Friday. He was instruc- tor in French to Brigham Young’s children at one time, assisted in translating the book of Mormon into French, and sefved as a missionary in Spain and Italy. ——Wee ee » General Grant's Namesake. A number of yearg ago a son Was born to.a colored woman Jn the south, and as he was her first she looked up on him with pride and was much at a loss to find a name for him. Relatives and friends, including her mistress, were appealed to; but, although many umines were suggest#d, all were dis eurded. After any days of deliberation nhe said one morning to her mistress: “Mise Mary, I'ze found a name for my boy. I'm golag to name Lim Delicious.” “Why,” sald the lady, “where did you my that name?’ “Oh,” she cried, “I’m going “to call him that ‘cause I want to ,bame hin’ for Mr.Grant.” © When it’ was explained to her that the great hero was named Ulysses and not Delicious, she was somewhat dis- - turbed in mind, but Ulysses. did not please her, so&@be boy had to begin life Egbert. u- burdened with the name gene. -Detrolt Free L'rest, tendencies, or imperi-_ A RIVER OF LAND.

Praise of Work Well Done. Perhaps there is nothing else so productive of cheerful, helpful service as the expression of approval or praise of work well done, and yet there is nothing so grudgingly, so meagerly given by emplorers. Many of them seem to think taat commendation is domoralizing and that the voicing of appreciation will lead to listlessness and the withdrawal of energy and in terest. This evinces but a poor knowl- edge of buma’ nature, which is al- ways hungering for approbation. But how mistaken suv-h views are is shown by the loyal and Qnstinted service giv- en to those large minded men who treat their employees as. members of a family committed te their care.—Suc- cess, Her Consolation.

Te was invited Noy the ‘state legislature to addres) hthem and the people of Rictmoni, and a coimittee consisting of James Lyons of Richmond and Robert E. Scott of Fauquier, two. of the most eminent lawyers in the state, were sent Cown to the hotel to escort him to the expitel building. They found Me...Webster-dn- a state of ftoxication Ju such degree that Mr. Lyons sald to Mr. Scott: *’fhis man can't hake a spe ech, You naust >! nian can take the place of Daniel Web- ster,” After delay, during which Mr. Web- ster improved a little, he was esked If he would go to the capitol, Le replica, “Yes.” With great ditliculty Messrs. Scott and’ Lyons supported and helped him to the gapitol. When they reached the rotunda near the Washington stat ue, Mr. Lyons said, “Mr. Webster, do you think you can speak?” “If you will give me a Crink of brandy, yes.” A messenger was sent to a neighbor- ing hotel and a bottie of brandy brought. Mr. Webstcr poured out sue- cessively two goblets full and™drank them off, straightened bimself up, whook himself as a lion might have done, walked steadily and dircetly to the position from which he spoke, ¢n the south porch of the capitol, and In the presence of an audience of 5,000 people, which consisted of the intellee- tuality and beauty of Richmond, male and female, made his celebrated Ccto- der speech, one of the greatest even of his life, Edwrrd-Everett-related ‘that on the day Webster replied to Hayne of South Carolina le walked with him to the capitol; that he seemed so badly pre pared that he doubted him and feared that he was uet equal to the occasion; that just before be rose to speak he crauk a goblet of brandy and then made his great speech la reply. to Ilayne, which is an English etassic.

The Russian minister of finance reports a decrease of 27 per cent in the average productiveness cf the farm lands in-thitt country. In Great Britalp farming-ias declined in every tion where the, live stock has Alocredsed in numbers. Dr. C. BL Thorne recently read a papex before a meeting of the Ohio board of agriculture that eon- tuins much foed for thought. He stat ed that during the last fifty years Ohio had gained nothing in-numbers of live stock, but bas doubled her area—in grain end is now paying $1,500,000 a year for commercial fertilizers, This is a plain indication of the deteriora tion of the soil's fertility, A similar condition prevails in this country gen- erally, and the remedy pliinly is to keep more live stock wand grow niore fertilizing crops. The oniy alternative is the purchase of the commercial fer tilizers which devour the profits of the farmer. Starting Tomato Plants, The New Hampshire experiment sta- tion has made some. tests with methods of starting tomato plants. In one test the plants were transplanted into small boxes so arranged that the bottom would be easily removed and the dirt allowed to slip out, and In the other they were transplanted Into four ineh | pots. When the pots were used, the plants-matnred and bore fruit earlier than the punts ‘in the first ee The station notes that “while the pot system takes more time and oecuples yet from the experiments made it surely pays.” Another experiment showed that the kind of soll in which the were planted seemed to have | pn the nmotint of rot produced, tomatoes | ati_effect’!

The disease is Indigestion cansed by feeding 100 mucd rich food. As discovered the birds shonid be put on a plain diet, Which should be reduced in quantity as well as quality. With their diet it will be wise to mix a little powdered charcoal or give the birds rhubarh pills, ove greic to each chick. Onty Hall Crops, The farms of this country are not crowded if the average yields per acre of cereal crops are evidences. There is a lack of judgment in farming, and there is also plenty of room for tm- provement. much wheat and corn on the area an nually devoted to those crops. There are probably too many large farms that are not well cultivated, and -it: Is these that reduce the aver ytelds.— Aureticns sercnner: Pasture For Swine, Where clover pasture is not availnble for. hogs it is advisable to sow small pieces of rape at successive periods during the spring months.
