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.

Mr Quist is \long\ on Christmas trees and thi one he has erected this Yuletide is uperior symmetry— and the dec orations are superb. In show cases and on the diffsrent shelves Is a line of cut glass and silver capable of ‘ dressing” a much larger esiabiiehmeat. The assort, inent of useful and handy yet inex­ pensive articles suitable to the sea­ son is large and of unusual beauty His candies are fresh and bright and of the finest quality; besides, there are pails ard pails of good whole­ some sweets less expensive than the gift boxes. Of story books there is a splendid assortment, and they are standard works— Mr, Quist thinks too much of the youth of the land to put befoio them the lurid tales of dime-novel stature. AH in all, we can't for the life of ns see why anyone should deem ft necessary to go trapsing around over the country looking for Christmas presents when Wisdom is as well pre pared to meet the wants of the sea went as ft is.

In na respect, at any rate, silver s like wheat ... the nation which pro- luics Urn bulk of the grain and the bulk of the metal is not in position o dictate prices. This country, Mexico and Canada are the principal silver producers, ard while they use a large quantity of It in coinage, industry and the aids, the amount left over is what makes the market price; and that is fixed abroad. Those who should know something about the I usiress say that a London firm sets the price for all 111 ® world by reason of its command of the Oriental markets.

Eyes do not dose in the above way of their own accord. They are closed by the operation of the selfish faculties most active In the Individual. Faculties that open the eyes giving the honest expression are cautious-, sublimity, Ideality, hope and spirit­ uality, Mlrthfulness gives small horizontal lines at the outer comers of the eyes. Secretlvenesa tends to pull down the eydids. The faculty of sublimity gives large bright, speaking eyes, with large pupfls. Combativeness gives wild, stem eyes. Cautiousness A land owner in a Southern state had a large property ot many acres, a beautiful house and a big peach orchard in bearing. Family circum­ stances made it necessary for him to sell his property, which was valued at about a hundred thousand dol- lais Butting It tn the hands of some able real estate men, the property owner received several calls from prospective purchasers. He met these purchasers at the railroad sta­ tion, motored them six miles over a good slate road and naif a mile over a very rough and bumpy dirt road to his house None of them purchased! Acting on the advice of one of the real estate men, the owner spent $5,000 and made that last half mile as good as the state road. The prop euly was sold at a price which In­ cluded the cost of the road plus profit on the road, within one month of its completion! What happens in one case will happen in another. A good road greatly increases the value of all ad­ jacent realty, especially' farms. Beaverhead ^Abstract Co Oldest Set of Abstract Books ia Beaverhead J County.
