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.

M. p . ha* m m SAVED HER M THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK DILLON, MONTANA Poet Office Official Took Moaoy and Stamp« Heme With Hoo-Wae Taking No Chaiwee. ____ « * She didn't want her nice, new safe all mussed up by pesky robbers 1 Recently one of the contract poetal stations in the District was robbed, hut owing to the habit of the woman owner of the store In which the sta tion was lodged, the robbers got no postal funds. This woman was in the habit of taking all the money and postage stamps home with her each night, as well as the receipts of her store, be cause she had no safe or other place to leave them la the establishment. It perhaps) should be explained that a “contract station” Is merely a small post office branch located In a store, w hich the owuer agrees to run on a contract basis. Well, -when the officials at the city post office heard of the robbery of the store, but safety of postal funds and stamps, they Interviewed the woman. \You must have a safe, by all means,\ declared the officials, \You not only need one for your own busi ness, but you must have it to safe guard Uncle Sam's money and slumps.” So the lady agreed to buy herself a safe. She got a nice, new one, really a tine affair, all enamel and gilt, with a shiny dial and all that sort of thing. \Now declared postal officials, with a sigh of relief, when they glimpsed that brand new safe, \No burglar can got In now, and you will be saved the danger of taking all your owu funds as well as postal moneys and stamps home each night.\ Several nights later light-fingered gentry gut Into the store again. When postal Inspectors hot footed It to the establishment they found the new safe with Us doors wide open and not a single note, coin or stamp In the safe. \('leaned!\ gasped the Inspector, looking into the empty safe. \They didn’t leave r cent—took it ail” Postal officials moaned. \How much did you leave in the safe?\ they asked the woman proprie tor The latter smiled sweetly. \1 didn't leave anything,\ she said. “What I\ jelled the postal Inspec tors. \You see, I was afraid the burglars would get in again,\ explained the woman. \And I iiad n 1 how they blow open safes. And my safe was so nice and shiny, I didn’t want them to hurt it when they tdew It up,\ \So j'OU—” \Yes sir, 1 Just took my money and stamps home with me each night, Just as I have always done, and left the door of the safe open a bit, so that If the burglars got in they would see It and not have to blow it all up,” ex plained the woman, \It’s such a pret ty safe.\ Farmer Can Construct Practical Road Drag Every farmer should have a road drag. There is no excuse for sot hav ing one when U can be had with to Uttle coat. Good road drag* may be purchased or made at home. Oa almost any farm tome old plank can bo found. Get two pieces of plank, oak If you can find It; 8 inches thick if it can be had; If not, 2 inches thick will bs all right; 8 or 16 Inches wide and 6 or 7 feet long. Three-inch plank is best as it is much heavier and will stand more heavy usage. You will also need two pieces of 2 by 5 or 8 by 4i preferably, If it can be had, 8 feet long. Some good tough wood is best. Make these like illustration B. Bore five one-half inch holes In each as il lustrated; one to be about 6 Inches from the end, with a second one 3 Inches or 2 Inches from that Inward, according to the thickness of your two large pieces of plank. At the other end bore one hole about 8 to 4 Inches from the end, this hole to be used to hold clevis pin for the hitch. Bote an other hole 6 inches from this end of the piece, and a third hole 2 or 3 Inches Inward from the second, ac cording to the thickness of the large pieces of plauk used. In each of the large pieces of plank make two holes as in illustration A, one at each end 2^4 Inches from top edge of the plunk. One hole should be 10 Inches from the end, the other 16 inches from the end; make these a □ Would Save Flamingoes. T. Gilbert Pearson, president of the National Association of Audubon So cieties, lias started on a trip to the Bahamas In the hope of saving the last survivors of the flame-colored flamingoes which were once numerous In the Bahamas and Florida. The colonies In the United States have been completely wiped out, and It Is esi¡mated that only 1,200 of these splendid Rnd stately birds remain in Die Bahamas. They are all on the Island of Andros, the largest and most densely wooded island of the group. The flamingo Is easy ts see, easy to kill and easy to eat. The flamingo tongue was one of the most prized delicacies of the table in Roman times, but the whole bird is esteemed in the Bahamas as formerly In Florida, and nothing but careful protection on a bird refuge can save the few which remain, Mr, Pearson has established sanctu aries for egrets and many other A m American birds and expects to have no difficulty In obtaining funds from bird lovers for the upkeep of such a refuge on the Island of Andros, If the local government will co-operate In protecting the bird. Aged Australian. Australia’s age record is claimed by Thomas Thomson, who was bora at Northampton 10814 years ago, and is now living at Ballarat He has issued a challenge te the rest of the common wealth to produce an older man. Be is In good health, and every Sunday walks half a mQe to church. At a recent mayoralty reception he climbed the stairs as well as a man of seventy. In 1926 be was presented te the (mince of Wales, to whom he remarked: 1 was a lively young fellow of twenty»-, three when your great-grandmother was crowned «Been.* Details of Practical Drag. holes so your two 3 foot pieces will slip Into (hem easily. You will also need eight old bolts, one half Inch lu diameter and 6 or 7 Inches long, these to go Into holes In the 8 foot pieces, Put together as In Illustration C, having one plank with long end at one end, and other piece with short end at same end; slip in the 3 foot cross- pieces, drive bolts In front and behind the large piece through all the holes but the two for the clevis, having the end of each cross piece containing the the three holes toward front. Get two clevises and put In the remaining holes. It will require about onehalf day’s time to make this drag, and cost you nothing for material If you can find the plank and old bolts on the farm. But even If you must purchase these It Is well worth having if you only need to use It on driveway and lanes, However, there are thousands of miles of roads that would be Improved wonderfully if the farmers along those roads spent but a few hours occasion ally in pulling a drag over them. You can give your road drag longer life by nailing n piece of angle Iron on the lower front edge of the plank as shown in Illustration A, Nall a few boards across the top to stand on while using the drag. These can be nailed on the upright planks, from front to back plank, or can be nailed on the cross-pieces, lengthwise. Either place will be all right. You can then ride on It and help to hold It down when extra weight Is needed. Uniform Sign Is Urged by the Highway Bureau Standardize danger signs along American roadways. Make them alike from coast to coast. So urge* the bureau of public reads, United States Department of Agriculture. The recommendation Is made for the consideration of high way officials, automobile organisa tions, municipal officials and other persons interested in safe driving. By standardization of all highway danger signs the department believes automobile accidents may be lessened. Deaths from automobile accidents hare nearly doubled since 1915, and the rapid increase of such accidents, the department believe«, can be ap preciably checked by the adoption of standard danger signs, easily read and distinctive, along American highways. A tourist at the present time wfl! see almost as many kinds of signs ts there are states he visits. Also, t e sene cases, the style of sign change« In going from one county te another.
