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.

Ile tried not to look that way. But his ear told him instantly that the per- son who had emu? out was Miss Amen - she rather than her father.

It was not his sister's fate that filled Ms heart and' brain, but thoughts of Miss Amanda. She had deliberifiely broken the silence of years! Of course, it might be attributed to bar interest in Carolyn May only, yet the hardware dealer wondered. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Relieved, At Camp Dodge one night a Swede Was on guard duty.
