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.

Occasionally he would kill a goose for his own use. It was not un­ usual for him to find nuggets of gold in their gizzards. He naturally be­ gan to wonder where these nuggets came from. Being an experienced prospector, he watched the geega to learn where they ranged most of the time. When he got the proper loca­ tion he began panning the gravel and followed up the trail of the colors and nuggets in prospector fashion He panned the dirt as he went along until he reached a point up on the hillside where the colors ceased to show in big pan. He knew that he had gone far enough and began to dig for the main quartz lead, or Wampler, John Woodworth, Forrest mother lode, as It is usually called.

At the same place 1 found the bodies of four foxes that had died from the poison anil whose pelts were worthless Per­ sonally, I think the birds are the greatest sufferers.
