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.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 1, 1902. ——Kzz&&&&&#w—~==~= aS IRRIGATION. ‘What It Will Accomplish in North- ‘ western Montana. Teton county and Northwestern Montana will be the garden spot of the Northwest if the proposed St. Mary’s canal accomplishes all that is predicted for it. O. G. Clay is the right of way agent for the Great Northern. For some time past he has been engaged along the . line of the Great Falls and: Canada , ard. hom minutes without making a, railway, which was recently ac- quired by J. J. Hill and his associ- ates, and which is being extensive- ly improved by widening the guage to standard width and by straighten- ing out the route, obviating unde- sirable grades and generally put- ting it in shape for handling the volume of traffic the officials ex- pect will come to the branch. The newly-purchased road con- nects Great Falls and the Lethridge coal mines in Canada. The Great Northern has acquired title to that part of the system within the UVuited States. From the beunda- ry line to the Montana terminus the road runs through a country largely given over to cattle raising. But for the lack of water the soil is admirably adapted to agricultur- al purposes, and experts have pro- nounced it unsurpassed for grains and pasture. The aridness is about to be overcome, and when that is accomplished hundreds of thon- sands of acres will be converted into’ valuable farming land. “Sarveyors are now on the ground,”’ said Mr. Clay, “‘and it is understood that upon their report to the government will depend the amount that will be spent in re- claiming the arid lands of that re- gion. The government has already reserved a large amount of land which will probably be irrigated m the near future. The soil has been examined by experts and found to be excellent for grain and hay if water can be bronght in sufficient quantities for irrigating purposes. The Conrad Investment company, which owns a large ranch west of Pondera, in Teton county, is ex- tending its system of irrigation ditches and will increase its acreage of reclaimed land.’’ The addition of the new line to the Great Northern system will fa- cilitate the marketing of the prod- uct of the Crow’s Nest mines, which Mr. Hill expects to develop on a large scale in the near future. It will shorten the route from the mines to Butte, Anaconda and Hel- ena by about 120 miles, nearly two- thifds of the distance by the pres- ent rovte via Havre. Previous to the improvements now in progress the Great Falls & Canada road was marrow guage and had_ several grades and stretches that would have made the handling of heavy traffic impracticable. _ About 30 miles of track have been relaid, and while in most cases the line has been shortened, in some places it has been necessary to lengthen it in order to reduce heavy grades. Mr. Clay has returned to St. Paul, “his part. of the work in’ connection with the improvements having been completed.—Anaconda Stand- Killed Her and Himself. George Wiley shot and killed Miss Dovie Flynn, stepdaughter of Richard Dearking, a Chicago & Alton railway employe, at the lat- ter’s home in Marshall, Mo.,a week ago, and then committed suicide. The woman had refused to marry him. Wiley intercepted Miss Flynn on her way home from a re- _ligious meeting, and walked with her to her home. ’ Mrs: Dearking _ had called to her to come into the house, and as she was passing through the door Wiley shot her . , She died within a statement. Later Wiley’s body ‘have of late been :presented to the people of Montana in an effect- Upson ‘Taft, who has been travel- ing through the state. Brunot Hall was endowed by Felix Brunot of Pittsburg. It gives thorongh instruction in aca- demic, preparatory and primary work, and its instructors are all graduates of Eastern colleges and universities, well versed in their several departments of work. The school is said to offer special advantages for the study of Ger- man, French, music and art. The location of the school is attractive and ample provision is made for ont-door exercise, with tennis and basketball grounds, where many an exciting match game is played. The young women are trained to perfection in these healthful games by compet- ent coaches. The Dramatic club is a feature of the work that combines pleasure and. helpful instructions. The club gives two or three playsa year. Last spring a successful presentation of ‘‘Pygmalion and}. Galatea” was made. ‘‘Alice of Old Vincennes’’ was another de- cided success, Musicals and lectures of. the highest order also occur at fre- quent intervals during the school year. Among the noted lecturers who will visit the school this year are Richard Ely of Wisconsin university and Dean Hicks of the University of Cincinnati. The personnel of its faculty is as much as anything responsible for the-fact that Brunot Hall ranks high in Western educational cir- cles. Bishop Lemuel H. Wells of Spokane is at the head of the school, and Miss Jule P. Baily, a graduate of Radcliff,is principal. Miss Taft herself, who is in charge of the art department, is a pupil of Vincent Dumont. Among the wellknown business men who com- pose the board of trustees is W.E. Cullen, formerly of Helena. The work of Brunot Hall is comprehensive in its scope, pupils being received between the ages of 10 and 20 years. The course is strict and the standard high, and the graduates are thoroughly fitted for entrance into college. It was formerly the diocesan school of St. Marys, but when an ample endowment fund was left it by Mr. Brunot, the name was changed to Brunot Hall. It pos- sesses ‘accommodations for fifty giris who board at the school, and also for many day pupils, who at- tend in large numbers from Spo- Kane. , An attractive catalogue present- ing the merits of the school in full has been prepared and will be for- warded upon application to the principal. In the front of this phamphlet appears the motto of Brunot Hall, ‘‘Hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.’’ Must Own Permanent Water Right. According to a decision recently made by Binger Hermann, com- missioner of the general land office at Washington, before a claimant can secure a patent toa desert land entry he must be the owner of a permanent water right and have conveyed the water to the Jand in permanent ditches. This is the precedent which is established in a decision rendered in the case.of F. M, McIntosh against Mrs. Anna Kuhr, to set aside a desert filing by the latter. Sorry That He Spoke. Scones, having sent a stupid servant to do an errand, was great- ly annoyed on finding that he had done exactly the opposite to what he had been ordered. “Why, you haven’t common sense,” he remonstrated. “But sir” — “Shut up! I should have re- membered that you were an idiot. When I’m tempted to senda fool on an errand again I'll not ask you, 1’ll go myself.’’—Tuéson Citizen, Russian art has sustained a great loss by. the death of the famous sculptor, Antoloski. The critics unanimously agree that this poor Jew worker earned a place by the side of Canova and Thorwaldsen. His “Christ,” ‘‘Socrates’’ and “Peter the Great” were leading features ebibaiiesin| exhibitone of 1878, 1889, and 1901. 4 ive manner -by Miss: Katherine! They All Belong to Me.

A man named McManus was drowned at Cobett station on the Cody line of the Burlington, July 27, while attempting to ford the river. An employe of the Big Black- foot Milling company at Bonner was found dead in his bunkhouse on the night of the 24th. Death probably causéd'by heart failure. Mrs. John Mulherin, Sr., of Co- lumbus, while taking a walk, made a misstep, and falling, broke the bone of the thigh at the socket, rendering her a cripple for life. James Davy and Walter Brad- shaw, the champion rock drilling team, went down to Wallace this week from Butte to take-part in the. contest that takes place there. John Kennaid, -the ex-deputy sheriff of Missoula, while out rid- ing, July 26, on one of Fred Ster- ling’s horses; had both his legs broken .by. the’ horse . falling on them.

Diplomas were given to Thomas Morton and George L.* Johnson by Professor Reitz of the Missoula business college the 24th, the first that have been issued in three years, the young men being the first to succeed in passing the necessary grades. A strike took place on the Northern Pacific at bridge No. 139 near Carlan, in which 19 men quit work. The men made a demand, for a raise of 50 cents a day in their wages, which would give them $3. The result was that the men were given their time and a new crew sent out to do the work. Fred Percivaglia, a driver in the employ of James Conley, a milk man, whose dairy is located near Lloyd’s ranch, south of Butte, was thrown from his delivery wagon, Saturday, and two of the wheels passetl over his chest, crush- ing out his life.

Fhe mosquitoes have been un- usually troublesome along Milk river this year, and beef .cattle are so much worried by their at- tacks that they will not be as fat as expected. A few days ago a band of newly sheared sheep be- longing to W. A. Howard of|burn Savoy were so crazed by the in- sects that the herder could not | out hold them and they scattered over the range and have not all been reeovered. es “News Nuggets.

One hundred and twenty-four cases of cholera have been report- ed in Cairo Egypt. The drinking fountains have been closed. The epidemic is of most virulent char- acter. Many of the natives are attacked in the streets and die in a few minutes. Another state ticket is to be placed in the field in Kansas under the name of Populist. A call for a state mass convention at Topeka Aug. 21. was issned, signed by J. H. Lothrop and N. Robbins of Topeka. They. represent the straight out Populist party.

The following 1s from a Wash- ington dispatch of the 26th ult.: Tumultuous conditions continue in Hayti, according to advices re- ceived today at the state depart- ment from_Minister Powell, who is in Port au Prince. He cables that war has been declared through- out the country and that General Firmin, an aspirant for the presi- dency; is marching on Port au Prince. The present government has dissolved. The large colonial home of John J.Drake, one of the pioneer show- men of the United States, at-Rye, N. Y., huts been destroyed by fire, together with its entire contents, which consisted “of curios ‘from all parts of the world and many gifts from European potentates. Mr. Drake. is 80 yearsold.

He was running in a horse and the animal he was on pl overan embank- ment 30 high, lighting on young Mr. Moore. The leg bone was driven through the flesh and overalls and showed plainly on the outside. Two physicians are in constant -attendance, but there is very little hope at this time (Thursday)that he will live. The grief of the parents is almost un- bearable and should the boy die it ‘would rob them of their only child. [Madisonian, July 24.] Another trail-blazer of Mon- tana journalism has “passed over the range.’’ It becomes’ the sorrowful duty of the Madisonian to. record the demise of its founder. ‘“Tom”’ Deyarmon, on Noy. 14, 1873, in an old frame- bailt shack on West ° Wallace street, issued the first number of this paper. A new postoffice has been estab- lished at Meadow creek. It will known as McAllister and Davis W. Lindsay has been appointed as postmaster. The Virginia City Baseball club was orgunized last Tuesday eve- ning. At a meeting held in the store of Ira H. French it was decided to perfect such an organi- zation. _C. W. Rank was elected president; James H. Powell, secre- tary and treasurer; Ira H. French manager; and Morse B. Davis, captain. Committees were ap- pointed to secure funds and to select.and put in shape a ball field. Great interest was shown by the business men present, and there is no doubt but that the team will have an active supporter in every man in town. [Dillon Tribune, July 25.) A good story is told on a stack ingpector of an adjoining county. He has given it out that he is *‘lay- ing” for two young range riders, and the lads heard of the blowing he was doing. Just to show him that they were all right they went to hig pasture, caught up the in- spector’s saddle horses and have since been riding them, passing the inspector by nearly every day, and he is unable to recognize his own property. [Powell County Record, July 25.} James W. Stahlk, one of the best known early settlers of Filat- head ‘eounty,~-committed suicide Monday night by shooting himself with a 25-caliber rifle. He placed the muzzle of the gun against his forehead and blew the top of his head off. Despondency caused by ill health led him to commit the deed, He has been bedridden for almost two years, and about one year ago became totally blind. He leaves a widow and six children. The Montana Verde Mines. Last Sanday many Butte people came over to Bernice, in this county, and went from there up to the Montana. Verde Copper com- pany’s mines to inspect those great propérties. Without a single exception the visitors ex- pressed their intense surprise at the colossal magnitude of the com- pany’s property and the immense amount of ore’in sight. thought themselves familiar with the character of the mines in all the numerous Montana districts, admitted that they were generally amazed to realize that such & prop- erty had been developed so near Butte, and yet up until the present time had attracted so little atten- The evidence in view in the ex- posure of the ore bodies on the Montana Verde properties was conclusive in establishing the fact that never in Butte or any other locality was such a property developed with a like amount of workings, Noone of the visitors placed the amount at anything less # tons on the Pearl H.
