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.

Backward, turn backward, oh time in thy -flight, feed me On gruel again just for tonight; I am so weary of sole leather steak, petrilied dough- nuts, vulcanized cake; oysters that sleep in the watery bath, butter as strong - as Goliath of Gath; weary of paying for what I can't eat, chewing up rubber and calling it meat. Back- ward, turn backward, for weary I am! Give me a whack at my grandmother's jam; -let me drink milk that has never been skinnned: let we eat butter whose hairs have been trimmed; let inc once more have an old fashioned pie and then I'll be willing to curl up and die. Ex. A SERIOUS ACCIDENT. ,1' Martin Cummings, An Employe at the Alta Mine. Creahed By Falling Rock. King Faro rules the day. Since gat/tiding has been pronounced un- constitutional by the lower courts some of our more'adventurous spirits have delved into storerooms and dark cor- ners, restarecting therefrom the faro tables and other paraphernalia that was thought to have been laid to rest for good when the so-called anti - gambling law went into effect. There has been no regular dealer, but every sport who could raise $ID or_tla hat_ started a snap game and as a conse- quence several hundred dollars have changed hands daring the week.

Surveys have been made to find out the amount of pipeateceasary to conductwaterthrmigh the town, and if the present plans mature our eitieeits ran expect to see as fine a system' of water works in our burg as can be fntoul in the state, and -this before snow flies. it is eat iniated that the whole weaka, irate the reser- volt to town, will dot exceed in cost -the MUM of ,f1.000. Martin . Cummings, an employe at the Alta mine, was seriously injured by falling rock Saturday morning front the effects of which he will prob.' ably die. He and a helper were working in a raise midway between the eleven and twelve levels. The night shift had blasted out the raise up to the level, leaving a quantity of loose hanginu rock and dirt. Cummings noticed that this rock, which was im- mediately overhead, was unsafe. and called to his helper for timbers to brace it up. He - was leaning over a girt, in the act of reaching for the lagging, when a huge slab of stone felleand struck hint a glancing blow on the • 1•••1111•1•••••111.
