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 JENNIE BLACK, As my subject is one of the great political issues born with with fear and trembling; but, as we women are, unfortunately and unjustly, deprived of the right of suffrage, we may be trusted to present the subject in.hand from ‘an unbiased standpoint, free from all political prejudice or selfish motive. : We consider it the most. import- ant event in our political history since. the acquisition of Louisiana by Thomas Jefferson, over a cen- tury ago. * We. believe the acquisition of these new possessions, washed by mation be worth all they have cost of blood and treasure? But they are not the only people who will be benefited by our protect- ing power in the far East. The teeming millions of benighted China can now hope for. better things. However, we would now look at the subject from a sélfish standpoint. Our own people will reap a great harvest in*the near future, from the increased trade that will result from these new conditions.

ORATION BY.STELLA EDWARDS, Perseverance ig the secret of all success in life, Even when we are. children we learn that to persevere means to succeed. and as we grow older we find that without it we cannot succed. In all stations of life it is this fae- ulty that enables us*to overcome We <aiay earnestly strive for some object in life and fall, but that ought not discour- age us, for if the object is worthy we should try again,not once or twice, but.many._times;-and-suecess- is almost sure to reward our efforts, The more,we. exercise this faculty it becoms for us to use it. Dur- ing our school days, we find that although the lessons may be diffi- cult, by persistent study we are able to’ master them. _ All of us have read, and per- haps some know, of young men starting in life with brilliant pro- spects only to end in dismal fail- ures! and, ina great many cases, this is due any deficiency of intellect or business ability, but lack of perseverance. They be- gin to study. for « certain line of | business, and at first “are very enthusiastic and think they can reach the goal by leaps and bounds | but when the novelty is gone they | grow tired, apd perhaps something else attracts their attention and of perseverance the more natural} the “waves of the mighty Pacific, to be a part of the Divine plan of the God of nations and of wars, in the civilization and christjaniza- tion of the Orient.

The young man who would win must plunge into the irrent of events. He must keep step with the march of progress, or he will soon be in the rear. The extravagance — and waste of ‘doing work badly are most lamentable. We can never over: estimate the value in a successful life, of an early formed habit of doing everything to w finish, and thus relieving ourselves of the necessity .6f doing things more than once. |The extravagance and loss resulting from a slipshod education—ijs—almost—beyond com- putation. To be. under the neccesity all through one’s life of Lpatthing up, or having to do over again half done and botched work, is not only a source of waste, but and life is also very great. There is great economy in put- ting the highest possible personal investment into everything we do. Do not bé afraidto show thorough- ness. in whatever you undertake, for it-is a great quality when once mastered; it makes all work easier and brings to life more sunshine. I once read of a young man who wished to become a lawyer. Seo strong was his ambition that after working on the farm all day, he would. sit by the light of the fireside and study. After study- ing for some time, by the aid of an old lawyer he was fitted for ad- mission to the bar. He rented an office in a small town and pur- chased some books and a table, as his ‘small means would not allow him to buy more; he sat in that office from day to day for five yeitts before he got anything like an important case; but by perse- vering he’ worked his way along last before he died he sat upor the Supreme Bench in-one ofour Southern states. This story is but of a thousand which one and greatness arise from , the persistency of a simple idea against all odds to a successful life. “Let us then be up and doing With-a heart for any fate, Stil achieving; still persuing, Learn to labor and to wait.” Mofttana Mention. ‘ Neill Hughes, one of the oldest pioncers of Montana, died in Hel- ena May 28 at the age of 86.

Verno Churchill, who is travel- and recently decorated the Helena auditorium, was found gagged and bound to a chair in that building, May 30, and claimed he had been robbed of $1,800. The new town of Galata, which the Great Northern is building in the northern part of the state, is booming. The~ largest © sheep- shearing plant in the state is to be established there, and will be in operation by June 10. T.. A. Marlo, president of the National’ bank of: Montana, as trustee, has purchased the plant of the.,.Helena Power and Light company under foreclosure pro- proceedings, for $200,000. Mr. Marlo has associated with him a syndicate of Chicago capitalists. While overseeing the .baling of wool at the company’s warehouse at Cody, Wyo., H. B. Segur, gen- eral'agent of tho Burlington in Montana, ruptured a blood yessel in the lining of his brain, causing paralysis of the left side. . He was taken to his home in Billings. His physicians believe he will recover. Thomas Blackburn had his. face badly burned and lacerated by a premature discharge of a blast at the Virginia City stone quarry last week.

But every schoolboy knows the result, and to-day there is not a move made on the political chess board ,of Europe without the consent of the United States. It would be impossible, at the present time, to compute the vast benefits the world in general has gained from _our new national strength, derived from our new possessions. All admit that we now have it in our power to put the brakes on the warlike. inclinations of the Euro- pean natiens. Who knows, but it “may yet be our destiny to bring a that much-hoped for uni- and inthis way re- what. All of a sudden the | earth beneath my feet shook. A low, mournful, rumbling sound accompanied. this quaking of the| earth. I glanced” up at Mount blackburn. Of a sudden, it as if the peak had opened and the points burst. out, as if some mighty demon were forcing its way upward. Then a cloud of ashes and smoke | shot into the air several hundred fect, and then there seemed to flow from the opening in the top a stream of dirty stuff, mixed with large and small boulders. This only lasted about ten minutes and then ceased as suddenly as it had begun. The air cleared and nature seemed again to. wear her cheery smile. It was three days after many perilous attempts, before I succeed in reaching the base.of. the mountam and then I discovered the country for miles around had been very much, affected. -The small undergrowth of trees had been entirely covered, up. This stuff that poured from the ‘moun- tain was not-even warm, but seemed to consist of: purely dust, rocks and earthy substances. I only stayed on the spota couple ,0f hours, then left for the coast. As near asI can find. out, this mountain has never been consid- ered of volcanic nature. —J.C.

If can attend | college and attain a more finished education, much. the better. It enlarges our scope and enables us the, better to decide what we will devoté ourselyes to. But it would be a sad thought indeed if this were necessary for us to succeed, as a great mass of the people cannot afford to spend so much of their time in preparing for life's struggles. However, in the present condition of our coun- try all, or nearly all, children can obtain a common school education if they wish, and they should all improve each opporfunity, for our school days are short, and then will begin the real struggle; and woe to those who have not learned to persevere, for they have many trials before them, and _ unless this faculty is developed they are destined to become failures. We miist -be alive if we expect to accomplish anything in this world. Some people ‘seem half dormant. A person who does things is,one who is alive to the very tips of his fingers; he is alert, always on the-watch for oppor- tunities; he does not give idleness time to dissipate him; he fights that common malady known as a “tired feeling” and conqures it. Much of the best energy is we 80 wasted in living in ‘the past or|4- dreaming of the future. Some people seem to think that any time but the present cis a good time to live.
