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.

A.PPlication made for entry at the post- otti , e at Plains, Montana, as second class mail matter. One Year $2.00 Plains, Montana, Dec. 30,, 1916 the United States is alarming. According to government statistics there are more drug users in this country than in China on compar- ison to population. • In telling their children of the dangers of wines aturnther liquors parents should not forget to say that the drug is far more danger- ous and harmful„ The careful student of the criminal class will tell ypu that there i's hope always for the drunkard, but rarely if ever for the drug fiend. Any in- telligent policeman will bear us out in this.—Missoula Herald. A Butte judge has ruled that in order to have standing in court, a person once declared insane must show beyond doubt that he or she has been legally declared sane. Langhora's Default It is said that Judge Clements of Helena, wept when passing sen- tence of one. year in the pen, upon Samuel W. Langhorne, who plead guilty to .the embezzlement of $25,000 belonging to the office of the secretary of the state board of stock commissioners. Whether or not the judege cried because he was moved by the pathetic plea of the attorney general in behalf of the thief, does not apper; perhaps the anguish of the judge arose from the extreme severity of the sentence but if so he would better have called in some judge who is not so tender hearted. Many as good as Langhorne have received a greater punishment for stealing is calf. The proceedings show Langhorne a forger as well as a thief. As mitigating circumstances the attorney general sets forth the fact that this nice clean smooth villian has a father and a mother and s wife, who is a IIelena girl. How fortunate for the convict that she - was'nt born in Butte or some other piece, and how unfortunate for the state that he ever had a father and a mother. The state and not the individual livestock shippers, is the heaviest loser. Ninety per cent of the money Langharne secured, belong- ed to the e.stray fund and 10 per cent to individuals. ' This . much has been disclosed by a Partial in- vestigation, but as soon as possi- ble the reports received from the inspectors will re checked up and the number of unrecorded brands ascertained, Governor Norris is quoted as saying that , the whole matter will be sifted:to the butom. With this issue the Democrat will cease for a time until other arrangements can be made, as an extension of the lease could not be Secured. We thank all for the patronage extended and the words of encouragement received in the past. Religious Servicies Cancreoetional At the morning service the church will observe the regular quarterly com- munion service. The subject for the evening address will be, \Nineteen Hun- dred and Now.'' The Use of Drugs A coroner in Philadelphia, who recently had occation to inves- tigate the death of a student in the medical department . of the University of Pennsylvania, is quoted as follows: \We have discovered that nearly three-quarters are drug users. This statement does not apply only to the medical department, but practically to every depart- ment in the university. While most of • the students do not use .drugs regularly, nearly all of them use - some sort of stimulent during the examination • periods. During the investigation surrounding the death of Scott my, men found that the favorite drug of the students during examination time is strych- nine'. They cram for nights at a time and then go into the exami- nation room just about chock full of strychnine. It is a wonder we don't have more sudden deaths.\ This statement may be exagger- ated but nevertheless, it shows the tendency of the times. It is ano- torious fact that night workers in all sections of this country use co- cain to give them an unnatural boost. Thousands of negro steve- dores at eastern seaport towns take the \dope\—cocain--to help them keep them awake for many hours - while the ably* are in.
