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.

Horatio Goodwin died at the Jefferson House August 4th. He going as far as Saginaw, Michigun, where he disposed of his interest to H. C. Collins who shipped in company with him: He returned to Whitehall, arriving here on Friday, August ist. He had been in very poor health all winter. Mr. Goodwin was in his 72d year. Coming to Fort Benton by way of the Missour1, in 1863, he has always fol- lowed the life of a frontierman with its varied fortuned. He came: into the White Tail Deer Creek valley in 1872 and has been a continuous resident, and well known citizen here since that time. On arriving here from Sag- inaw, he put up. at the Jefferson House, as was his custom when in town. He said he was sick and on Saturday, Dr. Davis was called, who pronounced him suffering from heart trouble. On Monday night at a late hour, W.W. McCall, who waited on him, left him, as he expressed the wish to be left alone, thinking he could sleep and rest better, angl thus alone, hé met death, and passed to his final rest. He had no relative in this country, but kind friends performed the last offices for the dead. Mr. Goodwin was born at Mechamie Falls, Maine, Nov. 19, 1831. He has two brothers and a sister living in the’ east. |For several years he followed the business. of’a freighter between Salt,Lake Utah,and Virginia City, Helena and Fort Benton, Montana, but since settling in the valley has made the raising of horses his sole business.

Straub, deputy sheriff, with four other men, learning that he was near Fellows, Wash., set out from Creston and found Tracy at Eddy’s ranch. When they arrived upon the scene Tracy attempted to make his escape. In the fight which fol- lowed Tracy was twice wounded in the leg. Hiding behind a rock, he used his~Winchester, but without effect. Failing. inf his efforts. to bring down his. mén, ‘he mado o dash for a near-by wheat field, and as it was getting dark his pursuers} surrounded the field, deciding to await the morning. Soon after Tracy entered the wheat field a shot was heard; and in. the morning his body was found, Preferring death by his own hand to capture, he had taken a revolver and blown out his brains, ANIMAL IMITATIVENESS, How « Degcar's Dow Grows to Be Like His Master, ‘ “One of the most curious traits to be found fm the animal nature,” said an observant citizen, “is that which grows out of the unconscious Imitativeness of eroatures of the lower order. L have observed many instances of where the ercatures of a lower order have taken on the characteristics In some notice- able degree of members of the human family. One might know, for Instance, the beggar's dog from the look of the dog, from the droop of the eye, the -pa- thetic hang of the lip and a certain gen- eral alr of despondency and bopeless- ness which seems to speak in the very nature of the animal. | mention the beggar's dog because it is a familiar example. The beggur's dog never looks cheerful, never smiles, never frolics, but simply sits by his master and broods and begs for whatever charity may give. “I have seen the dog character mold- ed under bappicr influences, and the dog became more cheerful, He was a light hearted, free and easy sort of creature and seemed to get something of the sunnier side of things. I am al- most tempted to say that if you will show we a man's dog I will tell you What manner of meu the owner is, with particular referetice to tempera- ment and his moods, The melancholy man, the mau who grovels mentally along the gloomler groves, the pess!- mistic man who is always looking at the dark side of the picture, ali the men who come within these-unbappy: clensi-} Gcations rarely own a cheerful dog. The dog unconsciously takes to tho ways of the master and In his moods imitates the master’s way of thinking. “But turn to the dog of the folly, cheerful fellow. Watch him show bis teeth in inughier When the Gaster ap proaches, Ile is darting across the yard and dancing and frisking arougd the master’s fect in the happiest way imaginable, and he ts up to all kinds of pranks and docs all kinda of little things to Indicate the godt nature that is in bim. He docs as bis master docs and seems to take the same general view of life. These ore smnall things, | gucss, but they show just bow impor- tant one’s way of thinking may influ ence one’s dog and change bis whole view of life.\—New Orleans Times- Deniocrat.

The movements of the ves sels will be protected by as much se. crecy as if they were bent on a boa fide hostile mission,” A Masteal Actor. August Van Biene, the actor-celiist, who bad a varied experience in this country some seasons ago with a play called “A Hiroken Melody,” appears to be Onding a great deal to worry him even where he is better known and, report says, better nppreciated, In an effort to get away from a part he had played something like 3,000 times and which the physiclans told he produced “A Play Without a Name,” asking the audience to contrib: ute suggestions fer a. title and offering a prize of $25 for the best. According to the latest information, Mr. Van Bleno had not accepted any one of the names, though he promised to an- nounce a cholee on the second night.

Ywung Corbett bas finally agreed open a date to ight Terry McGovern. WHilam Crowley of Hartford, who was instrumental in bringing the boys together last Thanksgiving day, has been after the Denverite for some time, but Corbett was unwilling to tacklé McGovern again until late In the falh * YOUNG CORBETT, He declared that he did not have to fight and pointed to the fact that when he was anxious to meet the former champion he bad to make all sorts of concessions. Corbett was billed to fight Daye Sul- livan before the St, Louls club re cently, but the authorities refused to permit the battle to take place, claim- ing that It was nothing short of a prizo- fight. Crowley was on decle nnd asked Corbett to face McGovern hr August He was at first averse to signing, but finally agreed to tackle Terry ot the 20th of next month. Corbett ‘may be of the opinion that the accident which the terrible Terry met with while playing baseball will prevent him from putting up a good tight, but such Is not likely to. occur, The Injury to his arm ia not as gerk ous As wos at first thought. In fact, within the past week be han been able to use It as of old. Tie is very anx- fous to Aight Corbett again and belleves that he will make It Interesting for him the next time they meet.
