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.

Malcolm Morrison Bli„wn Ci RS Chant Powder and instantly killed. , Malcolm Mot nut am. an employe at the Alta mine, was blown up by giant powder -at the, Alta Mine Saturday 'morning and instantly killed. Morri- son was a machine man, and together with a helper was worlfing in an inter- mediate level between the eleven and tweltris•near a wirrtz. They had drilled ten holes and, as was the custom, were preparing to set offa blast be;f0re.going off shift. Morrison left the machine in charge of his helper and i startod through the level to get soine powder and cepa. About five minutes passed and then a terrific explosion rent the air. Several millers hurrying to the scene as soon as the smoke cleared away found Morrison stretched out on the ground lifeless. The left anna.and leg were blown completely off and there were several deep wounds in the head that exposed the brain, either one of which would have proved fatal. The explosion took place about 4:30 a. in., and there are many opinions as to how it occurred. The general idea seems to be .that Morrison got his can- dle too close to the caps, or was trying to place a cap on the fuse, as the man- ner in which the body was mangled points conclusively to the fact that he was in a stooping position,and received the fill/ 'force of the explosion on his - left side. The remains were gathered up and placed in a wagon and brought to Wickes, where they were laid out in a back room t the hospital. The coroner was notified. and Depbty Coroner Sweet, of Boulder, came over on the Butte local at 10 o'clock. After view- ing the body he ordered it conveyed to the old company office, just across the street front the hospitahand summoned a jury. The coronor and jury then repaired to the scene of the explosion, where a verdict was 'rendered that the deceased came to his death by an acci- dental explosion of powder. and exhon- orated the company from all blame. The remains were placed in a casket and left until Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at which time the funeral took place .The funeral was held in Miners' Union hall, .a , 14,1 the services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Blythe, if Bouliler. After the,funisralthe miners formed in line, four abreast, and took up the march to the cemetary at Jef- ferson. vhere the remains were iu- terremt with a very impressive cere- mony. A. heavy snow storm was rag- ing at the time, but such was the miners' regard for their stricken brother that they ft‘ed the storm without a murmur. and walked the entire distance to Jeffers. a. Out of respect to Morrison, the Alta was closed down immediately after the accident and work was not re- sumed until the day force went on ditty Monday morning. lvio . rrison was a Scotehman by birth, and rame to 1 •Vickes; from Catl.da, a number of years ago.

Deafness Cannot be Cured by local appliances, as .they cannot reach the diseased portion of the car. There is only one way to -cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is cauSed by an inflamed con- dition of the mucous lining *of the eustachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearibg, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflamation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal - condition, hearing will be de- stn,yed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by- catarrh, which is noth- ing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give one hundred &Marti for any case of deaf- ness (caused by catarrh) ,that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. - Send for circulars, free. • F. J. CHENEY & Co..

It was on the claims of a man named Tyler that the ore was found, and it is said to be in , a very promising- and well- defined vein. • The Ideal Panacea. James L. Francis, alderman, Chica- go, says: \I regard Dr. King's New Discovery as an ideal . panacea for Coughs, colds and lung complaints, having used it in my family for the last five Years, to the exclusion of physician's prescriptions or • other preparations.\ Rev. Joho Burgui4, Keokuk, Iowa, writes: \I have been a minister of the methodist episcopal church for 50 years or more,, and have never found anything so beneficial, or that gave Inc such . speedy relief, as Dr. King's New Discovery'' Try this -ideal cough remedy now. Trial bottles free at the Wicker drug store. Messrs. Hazeltine. Bonner & Gann continue pushing work on the ..Poor - man goldelaini at Johannesburg. They have now 'got their crosscut in to the vein, which gives. them a dooth of 18 feet. The ore is said to be as good ;is it was on top, and the vein . seems equally as large. Johannesburg is the scene of the recent gold excitement near Neihart.
