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.

KRI.LOOG, Seely. l)N last Monday night, when we Isaac- ve:appedir.the arms of Morpheus, dreainiag that delinquent subscribers 1 were papaing their shekels into our . coffers in a contiaamns stream, we were, rudely brought to ,a,,realizatiori of the cares of an -editor's. ,eaistence by a. yieilent, shaking of the, door to our sanctum., On arising and peering out, we noticed ,thrta2 men, ist„front of the door who, . in the subdued light re - fleeted b,y an'aubunahaired individtad ott the opposite side of tlse street, ap- peared,tp be veritable giants. When they : , saw us. immediate a.dinittance Was demanded. Thinking the world was comiTig to an end and the angels (there are.,al a kinds) had been sent, to fetch us lience,„or at the least, that the vigilante were. upon us. we tried to argue the matter,.and asked them to call again, in sla k alight. They Would have none of it, and so, after training our g'attIing guns on ,the . anen, loosen- ing the war dogs and, , prqviclitig out' - selves with a son-of-iagun for t hoth . hands, we threw back the massive. bolts and opeited the door.. _In walked . the men with—an order from the Min - era Union for some printing.

RICKARDS, in the•course of an interview in Butte, had the .. following . to say concerning the much talited of. extra session: \There is absolutely no truth An the, report that I said I was going ter con- vene . the legislature in extra session. No _emergency has arisen up to the present time that would justify such a step. Emergencies may . arise that _may make such action necessary, but they do not exist nosy, _and nothing is further front my mind -at thist time than the eal . t . ing of an extra session.” Saacitnav, Nov. 16. was pay day on the Tireat Northern, and if Jim Hill could have seen the result of his munificence as portrayed in the cheer- ful (?), countenances of his section men as they drew their little $1.35 per day it would certainly have made his heart beat With gladneas and have been a powerful incentive to the fouloading . !if another $500.011Y academy. $1.35 per day and 70 . cents per day for . board!

The thriving little burg of • Cotbin seetuA.do he, oil . , tkç eye of a,, great boom. On Monday last a representa- tive of the Pitesaftas.'visited the town niul noted Da every hand the merry ring of the saw and hammer. Houses. ire. springing up as if by magic and the„isitp,ovements being made to the . two mills are worth going many miles to see, is': these days when almost every kind of factory and mill are closed down,. The coacentratar, or No. 1 mill, is being worked to its full capac- ity 350, tons per day., a new assay abffice has been erected, 'a large 85,000 'galou tank.is beiug built on the pal just above the mill, and a large force of men are enraged in laying water PiPecti. through and ,around thescoucen- trator.. What most attracted' our attention tibn was the new, or No. .2 . mill, used for working tailing front the conceit-. trator. Here: could 'be,. seen small army of men hurrying to and fro, all, giving evidence that something out of the ordinary run of things was in the wind. On enquiry from outsiders(for admission can be had to the mill attar no pretext) we learned that new machinery was being added and that the work of doubling the capacity of . the mill was in progress.. Front the same source we learned that Mr. Peek v j had soresse4.1thuself as being fully satisfied that the mill had passed the experimental stage, and that it was now an assured success. The work of,,exoerimenting on the tailings dump dates, hack, to 1890, when a crude mill was erected and exhaus- tive tests made. Sean . afterthia a com- pany was organized known, am the Peck-Montana conapany, and..za i large aTO-ton mill erected. What had pt oven a success as an experiment, was found 'it) be a flat failure when an attempt . was made to branch out on a large scale. The mill, with its machinery and,equipments intact, was . allaweal to remain idle until about three months ago. At this time the company, noth- ing daunted by previous failures, de- termined to try a new process, which had been used in different portions of the country with good results, and the success met with was far .better than they had anticipated. The old machin- ery was talten out and replacedaby new and improved; and 200 tons of tailings are now run through the mill every day. . ., A -large force of men : are employed in a building a atairoisagattge railroad from thadams . which hold the tailings to the,ink11, and gnaw -ill be in . running order about the time the work of doubling the capacity ,of the mill has beep completed, . It, is estimated that there are over 1,009,000Aons of tailings on the dump and held in the three dams, and this is being added to, at the rate of 200 tons per day front the old mill. The tailings will 'run about $10 to the ton. The Corbin hotel, formerly tinder the management of Mrs. peteraon, has been leased by Mr. Donald, who is prepared to accomytodate all comers ina,first-clans manner. Mr. McDonald., together with Johnson & Talbot, of Jefferson, has also opened a grocery Store adjoining the hotel office. T. A. Wickes, of Boulder, is laying. in a large stock of dry goods and mil- linery in the store building formerly occupied by Wolford & Co. as a butch- er shop. lie will open .. the store for business the firsapart,of next week, It is rumored that another saloon building vrillsbe erected on . a lot ad- julning the hotel, and that it • will . be ready for business byJan..1 7 . 4 P ho the promoteraare, or whether the sclvane will go through, we are unable to say. •-• The officers of the twa ,niAls, when the hotel changed. hands, employed a cook and are now \batchieg.\ Hank Merrill, of Wickes, is engaged lit doing some painting for the com- pany, and under hipaartiatic touch the guilding-ft present a beautiful ap- pearastC1.. Prize fighting has been pro- hibited in Texas and Arkansas, but it still thrives in Montana, as could be seen by a visitor to our burg on Mon- day evening last. Jean ,Madden and Frank, Lindsay got into an altercation in' the store of Dailey and Terry and finally came to bl.o.ses, They fQttbast TURN all over the store and ; heu adjoinned to 'the street, where . the contest W:1, continued.

There is more catarrh itL thissection of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few year.. was supposed to he incurable. For a great many year* doctors pro- nounced it a local disease, and pre- scribed local remedies, and by con- stantly failing to cure by local treat- ment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitti- ticanal disease, and therefore requires 'constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca- tarrh Cure. manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, • Ohio, is the only constitutional remedy on the market. It is taken intentally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on the blood and mucous sur- faces of the. system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send for sirculars ;did testimonials. Address. F. J.

It is said, to be de- veloping into one of the richest silver. mines in the state. The property located only last July. The lead, - which is only four feet wide, was found on the surface and paid from the grass roots. At present the own- ers are working nine men and shipping V car of ore each week to the suielter ,at Omaha. The first shipment of four and three-quarters tons was made to butte in August and netted the owners $71.15. The next shipment was a car to Denver and brought them $2.500.
