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 cou- ple will reside in. the latter city, which has been the home of Mr. Litton for many years. _ Probably Larry Reilly, ritadallbuper . - visas...for the Wickes district, has never seen an Italian sunset, but that he has seen a dago is amply proven, by the number of peddlers hailing from the land of sunshine gathered in for road tax/.during the week. Dick Welch left Wickes. Wednesday eveniugt for Helena. From there he started. on an extended tour through the east, and will land in. Dallas in - time to see the Corbett-Fitisimmons mill pulled off.

A party composed of Theodore Frey- ler, Everett Nale, Miss Mable Gordon and Miss Josie Freyler, chaperoned by Mrs. Wm. Hickey, left here Sunday afternoon for Rawhide gulch to spend a few days berry picking. They ar- rived home Wednesday much pleased with the success of their outing. If the Salvation Army should lose their leader there is plenty of material to draw on in Wickes. The amount of drummers that strike this town in a week is siomething wonderful, and as they generally flock to the places that are cloying the moat business, then Dailey & Terry are - to be congratu- lated. At the hospital there is upthing new to report. Several outside ca.sem have been treated and several patients dim- rharged. Those now remaiuing un- der the charge of Dr. Bullard are rap- idly recoveriug, and the majority will be at work shortly. There are no serious accidents reverted front the stones. 1.1 , ..•••• to last for six week*. In Helena the party was joined by Mrs. Church, who will do the park with them.

Exquisite buttonholes in white ribbon were placed for each guest, and the tea passed off as merrily as a marriage bell. The evening was spent in games and conversation, principally on the coming concert which takes place in I. 0. 0. F. hall on the 20th. A surprise party was given at the residence of Mrs. Wickersham.

Terry left Wickes Saturday even- ing for kawhide gulch on a berrying trip, returning - home Sanday evening with about four gallons of berries, a few colds fram camping out and won- derful stories to relate. Altogether it ss as a splendid outing and if the berry se:111011 was not nearing its close we venture to remark that they would be out inure than ono) this year. A horse hitched to the delivery wagon ot Bach, Cory et Co. had the toothache lVednesalay, and the, driver attempted to do a little dentistry by hitchinf,ra ring on the trreast strap to the offending molar.

They report themselves as having had an excellent time: The hunting and fish- ing is exceptionally good this season and consequently drawsla larger crowd than ever before. They say the park in filled with touris4s, most of whom are travelling in private conveyances, though the railroads are also doing a rushing business. To gain an idea of the wonders unfoldec1 to their admir- ing - eyes, sit down for a few minutes and listen, to, the boys talk. ' The following school boy's composi- tion on \The Eititor - is about the most charming portra:Aal we. have seen of the joys of an editor's e„xistence: \The edi- tor is one of the happiest individuals in the world. He can, go to any drew; in the afternoon or evening without pay- ing , a penny, also to inquests and hang- ings. He has free tickets to theators, gets wedding cake sent to him, and. sometimes gets a licking,but not often. for he can take things back in the next issue, which he generally does. - While other folks have to go to bed early, the editor can sit ur late every night and see all that is going on. When I am a man I mean to be an editor so that I may stay out at night. That will be jolly.\ Willie. the three year old son of Jake Sc:larf. received quite a severe burn about the neck and shoulders on Wednesday afternoon. He and his brother, Radford, were playing in the street with lighted roils of paper, in imitation of cigarettes, when fire fell on the dress of the little one and blazed up fiercely. But for the presence of • mind ;If Radford. who neat the flames out, Willie would probab1 v have been burned to death. n . The ee and shoul- tiers are a mass obliaters, \ nd causes the child much pain, but he vitil be en- tirely recovered in a week or te4-days. Since writing the above, we learn fienn Dr. Bollard. who was called in to at- tend the child. that he burns were much more serious than at first antic- ipated, and'that it will require long and careful nursing to insure his et: - tire recovery.
