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.

The Democratic state central committee met in Helena last Tues- day, and Bozeman was selected as the place for holding the state con- vention and the date set for it is September 23d. The basis of representation was arrived at by adding together the votes cast for Governor Toole and Associate Justice Milburn and dividing the product by two. Eeach county is allowed one delegate for every seventy of the resultant votes, and three delegates at large.

Saturday, Aug. 30.—Court con- vened with Judge M. H. Parker presiding, and the following busi- ness was transacted: An agreed statement of addi- tional facts was submitted to the court for its consideration in the case of Extorm vs. Quinn. The motion for the re-taxation of costs in the case of Wilham vs. Jefferson county was heard upon arguments of counsel, and the court. held that the county com- missioners were entitled to their fees as witnesses in the case, their | |positien in the case being simply that of witnesses; but the court ordered the item of $10 for sus- taining the motion for a non-suit to be stricken fromi the cost bill, because the law as interpretcd by the court did not refer to motions of this kind, which came on during the trial of a case. In the case of Sockerson vs. York and Doney, the court ordered that the refferee, Hon. C. P. Con- nolly, take the testimony in“ the case and report his findings thereon. The court signed in open court the judgment in the case of Hall vs. Sweet et al. In the estate of L. A. Vawter, deceased, the court approved the final account of the administrator. In the estate of Rosana McGuire, deceased, and in the matter of the minors’ estate therein and guardi- anship the court, after hearing the evidence, approved and confirmed the reports of the administrator and guardian, and the adminis- | trator and guardian was discharged from his trust. In the estate of Jennie L. Mc- Keown Smith a commission to take testimony on behalf of the object- or and on behalf of the adminis- trator with the will annexed was signed by the court; and the hearing of the objections herein was continued until 10 a. m, of the first day of the October term, which will be Oct. 6. 3 The court granted the petition of the receiver of the Basin and Bay State Mining company, to lease certain tailings, the property of the company. The company is to recerve 20 per cent. royalty upon the proceeds. LT The British steamer Korona arrived at Castries, Island of St. Lucia, and reported a terrible Jeraption of Mt.

Dream That Was Real. While Mrs. Sebick and her two children were lying dead in one room of their home in Chicago, Saturday morning, the woman’s husband, who was in another part of the house, dreamed that his wife’s life was in peril and gave a startled jump from his bed. He detected the odorof ga} and began an investigation. He could get no answer from his wife and two chil- dren, who, he was surprised to find, were Breaking in the door he saw that the three were apparently lifeless. He then ran to the office of a physician and was told to hurty back and open all the windows, the physician promising to.come as soon as he could get dressed. When the doctor arrived he fouud that the woman and children had been déad about two hours. An illegible ‘note was found on the dresser, and it is believed that the woman suicided, In corrobora- tion of this theory the officers found that a little hole in the glass was stuffed up with a piece of rag, thus shutting off an cnscape for the gas. The firm of Long Bros., which has the reputation of having handled mére sheep than any other in the United States, bas “!sold to I. D.

In the civil-war time a western wo- man who had lost ber husband in the field and who hoped to win a livelihood for herself and her little ones by writ- ing sent to Ilarper’s Magazine a story which had no special distinction and was returned. In the desperate mood that followed this rejection she sat down with pen aflame and told “why I wrote it,” and her story under that ti- tle was accepted and published, win- ning a sympethetic response from all its readers. But this production, the echo of a vital moment, was her one story in the magazine. Oliver Wendell Holmes sald that anybody could write one interesting novel if he could truly tell the story of bis own life.—Ilarper’s Magazine. Obeyed Orders. “What was the cause of that awful racket and disturbance in your office just before you came?’ asked one of the tenants on the third floor. “You know that young cowboy that came yesterday to begin the study of law with«ane?” said the other. “Yeu,” “Well, I thought be might as well be- gin at the bottom, and Ff told liim that when he came down this morning the first thing for bim to do would be to clean out the office.” Ile found half a dozen fellows there waiting for me, but he did it, all right.”\—Chicago Trib- une. A Clear Cet Warning. . “Young ladies,” said an absentmind- ed teacher of Latin to his class in Vir- cil, “I understand that you count upon my calling on you in alphabetical order and prepare your lessons. accordingly. I am surprised and disappointed at such conduct. Hereafter I warn you I shall begin at the other end of the al- phabet!” Corrected. Visitor—Go to the proprietor and tell him to make my Dill out properly and write omelette vith two ‘t's’ and not one. Waiter (a few minutes later)—It's all right now, sir—omélet, 1 shilling; two teas, 2 shillings.—London Tit-Bits. Tests of Friendshfp. When a woman gives notice that she has moved to the top floor and there ts no elevator, she begins to find who her true friends are, and when sbe makes it known that she is boarding out and has no meals served at home she gets’ still nearer the root of the matter. The foot of a horse is one of the most ingenious and unexampled pleces of Mechanism in the whole range of anl- mal structure. KISSING THE HAND, The Practice Was Instituted by the Barly Romana Rulers, The practice of kissing the hands was instituted by the early Roman rulers as a mark of subjection as much as one of respect, and under the first Coesar the custom was kept up, but only fow a Ume, These worthies conceived -the idea that the proper homage due to their exalted station called for less familiar modes of obelsance, so the privilege of kissing the emperor’e hand was re- served aa a special mark of condescen- sion or distinction for officers of high rank, No such restrietion, however, was placed on the emperors themselves, who, 'if they wished to confer signal , honor on any of their subjecta, kissed cither the snoutia or the eyes of those they wished specially to favor, the kiss generally tntimating some promotion or personal satisfaction for - some achievement, Roman fathers considered the prac- tice of kissing of so delicate a nature that they never kissed their wives in the presence of their daughters. Then, too, only the nearest relatives were allowed to kiss their kindred of the gentler sex on the mouth, for in those days, as now, kissing was not a mere arbitrary sign, but it was the spontancous language of the affections, especially that of love, Under the Romans if a lover kissed lis betrothed before marriage she in- herited half of his worldly goods in the event of his death before the marriage ceremony, and If she died her heritage descended to her nearest relatives. A PANTHER’S DEN, Clean and “Bright, In Decided Con- trast to the Popolar idea. It was my good fortune to discover the newly abandoned lair of a cougar family and further and to me new evidence of that fastidious cleanliness which Is a marked characteristic of the animal, This retreat was not at all the typical “panthers den” of tradl- tion, but a bush grown harborage un- der the edge of a rock with just enough of shelf to keep off the rain. 1 should not have found this breeding place but for a certain well gnawed array of bones scattered over a little smooth bench dbove a creek channel, From this boneyarS there was a very tracea- bie path leading through grass and brush to the retreat where the dam had housed her young. The evidence here told plainly of the cougar’s long immunity from annoyance and attack and of a thoroughly cleanly habit of life. There was ne bore or other sign of feasting about the lair. The dam had carried her kill to the creck bench in every Instance, and the children Lad been called to the dining room. As bones which would have been crunch- ed or caten by grown animals had been perfectly cleaned by the kits I was able to judge of their summer's diet. This had consisted mostly of minor game, rabbits, marmots, groure and the like, with an occasional small deer. At least one whole family of badgers, old and young, had been served, pussy having probably lain for them at their hole until they were all tn.—Franklin~ Welles Calkins ia _Out- ing. The Horse In Useful Bren if Dead. The whale can be put to a great number of uses when dead, as can also the horse, the various parts of which are utilized as follows: Hair of mane and tall for haircloth, stutfing mattresses and making bags for cfush- ing sced Iu oll mills, etc.; hide and skin tanned for leather for covering tables, etc.; tendons used for glue and gelatin; flesh for food for dogs, poultry and man; fat used for lamps, cte.; intes- tines used for covering sausages, nak- ing gut strings, ete.; beart and tongue for food; hoofs for gelatin, prusgiate, fancy snuffboxes, etc.; bones for knife handles, phosphorus, superphosphate of lime and manure; blood for manure and shoes for reuse or for old fron.— Spare Moments.

I'ze jes’ bought a policy ticket, an’ I'll hafter wait till aftuh de drawin’ to sev whether I'ze gwine to work at all or not.”—Washington Star. The Time Honored Spanker. Once my sister Floy was sent on an errand for some things for my mother. There was a traveling man there who was selling carpet spankers, and ae asked her: “Has your niother got one of these spankers?’ “No, sir,” she replied. “What does she use?’ he asked. “Her band,” was the prompt reply.— Chicago Chroniclé.

THE CLUMSY MAN, You Can Never De Sure of What His Next Dreak Will Be, The great virtue about the really clumsy man is that he never exhausts his capabilities. When you think that the bedrock is reached, there Is still a lower depth. If a detrimental relative should exist, the clumsy man asks aft- er his health with great particularity and will not be satisfied until he re- celves a full and detailed reply. Should there be any Incident in your past which everybody has generously agreed to forget it is the clumsy man who selzes the one, the inevitable opportu. gity, when the club ts at its fullest and says. loudly: “Somebody was talking the other day about that unfortunate ‘@ittle affair of yours in ‘05. Now tell me!\ When on meeting bim you say casu- nally and with no desire for informa- tlon, “Ilow are you?” he Insists on giv- ing yeu complete data, and he is'as full of small complaints as a refractory pauper, It is only fair to add thut he will ask affectionately after the colds of yesteryear, and his favorite locate for this t# at the corner of a drafty street.

You are growlng stout, and he tells av unamusing anecdote about apoplexy He can be more critical than a hair dresser if ocension gives the least ex- cuse.— Phlladetphig batiget, A UNIQUE DORMITORY. One That Is Owned eet the Universality of the South. Dean Tloffman wes noted for char {table impulses, which bls large Income allowed him to indulge iu. Some years ago the dean invested beavily in land in a small southery town which was then enjoying a “boom” period, Among the dean's other Investments was a beautiful little hotel, exquisitely sp pointed and perfect in every detail. After awhile the “boom” fell through, and the little hotel became a losing lu vestment. At this time the chancellor of the University of the South, an old friend of Dean Hoffman, was on a hunting trip with him in the mounteins of North Carolina, “We are badly in need of a dormitéry down at Suwanee,” sald the chancel “Yes,” said Hoffman and sat think- ing for a moment, “Well, you can have the hotel building down at bD——,” nam’ fez the town. “You can take it to pieces and move it to Suwanee. It ought to make a pretty little dorml tory.” The chancellot was greatly pleased and made all the arrangements to move the hotel, when, to bis astonish ment, the citizens of the town obtained an injunction against its removal on the grounds that the hotel in a way was public property and that to re move It would lenve the town without any botél accommodations, A~ tegal fight followed, but the university won out In the end. So the University of the South revels in the luxury of the most unique dormitory In the world.— New York Times. The Home of the Kindergarten. The Japanese hare the most perfect kindergarten system In the world. In fact, they originated this method of In- structing by entertainment Instead of by punishment inflicted. Their play ap- paratus for such purpose is elaborate. but all of it is adapted to the infant mind, which it is designed at once to amuse and to inform. The little ones of Japan even become somewhat Inter- ested in mathefiatics by secing and fecllng what a pretty thing a cone, a sphere or a cylinder ig when cut out of wood with a lathe. They make eut- Mnes of solid figurcs out of straw, with green peas to bold the joints together, and for the instruction of the blind flat blocks are provided with the Japanese ebaracters ralsed upon then. Insomnia Remedics.

IGNORANT OF GEOGRAPHY. Mow a German Pat Posers to an American Girl, “A thing about Americans which has surprised me wore than anything else,” said a German artist who has been vls- {ung in New York city for six mouths past, “is that with-all your patriotism you know so little about the geography of your own country, to say nothing of the rest of the world,” There were several Americas in the circle,» aud they looked rather sur- prised. None of the men spoke. They knew that they were weak in geogra- phy and that here was a challenge which would have to pase, Not so a bright young woman of twWenty,, who rushed {nto the breach with her bead tn the alr, “We do know the geography of our country,” she said decidedly, “Of course we do. Every child learns ft la school.” “Might Lask you a que tion or two?” the foreigner sald quietly. “The names of the capitals of some of your states, for instance?\ a “Certainly. I'll be glad to answer.” And she nodded coniidently at the young American man who was already beginning to fear for her. “What is the eapital of Massachu setts?\ was his firat question, “Boston!” was the prompt answer from the girl, “And of North Carolina?” That seemed to puzzle her’a little, and it was a fulb minute before she an- swered “Charleston!” The foreigner smiled, effort to correct her. “What is the highest mountein in the United States?” be asked, “It's not fair Yo ask about moun- tains,” she protested. “You sald I didn't know the capitals.” “The capital of 1linols fs?” “Chi—Springfield, | mean.” “Of Montana?” For the life of her-she could not think of a town In Montana. “It's been an age since I studied geography, ’ she explained, “Your auswers were better than tho average,” said the man. “You got one right out of four.

Candles. “| thought candies wont with stage- coaches, but a good many people must ase them yet,” sald a shopper why pointed to a collection of candlesticks, all of the utility sort, arrayed in a house furnishing department. There were big and little, ornamental and plain, practical and unpractical ones. Some had broad trays, and others had none at all, and some had devices for lifting the candle, while others. were made with decp necks. There still re- main people who cling to the traditions of thelr ancestors aud will have none of the modern lighting Inventions for their sleeping rooms. Certain tromen they are asleep, and for this purpose a candle Is just the thing. for it will put itself out at the time proportioned by its length.—New York Tribune. “ Gav Ne Renson For Swearing.
