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.

One of the best speeches in the house in years came from Representa tive Osborne of California the day of the Pershing parade, says the Los An geles Times, lluvlng been one of the soldiers who marched up Pennsylva nia avenue at the close of the Civil war for a final review by General Sherman, he was able to draw a beau tiful ami striking contrast with the return of (he veterans of 1919, At one point In the address the rep resentative spoke feelingly of how Sherman, at the bead of the column, at Fifteenth street and Pennsylvania avenue had turned on Ills horse and looked back at the advancing veter ans. \Tints said Mr Osborne, “the fig ure of Sherman, cast in bronze, sits to day at the head of Pennsylvania ave nue, us be sat that day more than fif ty years ago.\ The reference to the Sherman statue aroused great Interest und many were the pilgrimages made to (he stHiue within the next few days to see how Sherman looked gazing down the ave nue. But horror of horrors! It de veloped that Sherman was looking not toward the advancing column, but to ward the White House, which stands In an opposite direction. Now Osborne Is looking for the man who placed It thus. s Lava Under Ranger Field7 , ! Geologists believe that continued- jl operations in the Ranger field, sho|Jl they attain a depth of one mile undiy the surface, will prove the existefffj* of a live lava bed, u Ranger (Te«.) correspondent of the New York Eve ning Suh writes. In the region of Caddo oil drillers have discovered that bits of the drills show evidences of in tense heat within «3,200 feet of the surface, and the heat at that depth is sufficient to discharge shots of nitro glycerin without the use of a fulmi nating cap. A peculiarity of the Ranger field in Stephens county is the number of cre vasses encountered in drilling throng ' the black lime. These crevasses a fit, filled more or less with oili-yielding sand and when this sand is “shot\ tffe flow of petroleum rushes to the surface. Whether this rush is aided by the subterranean heat Js problem atical, but it is believed that the heat has a greqt deal to do” with the rush of the oil. i *Bg jfjjtejjfc»- « rt -tim»- h» 4 »- u j m r t o t o É r i l te tutto the 1 subJeets. ta the :«***- 9 te fitto NOTRE P t « PUBLICATÏON Sto. « tel» Department of the Interior, V.
