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.

Stork Doe« Everything Electrically In Six-Room Bungalow for $ 9 .9 6 a Month; Mrs. McAboy, Spending $3.86, Would Rather Give up Plano than Electric Range , (From our regular correspondent) BUTTE, MONT,, Augus^7, 1924.—W. H. Stork, of Bessette- Stork Co., printers, with his wifrand child, lives in a six-room bungalow at 1236 West Platinum Street, this city. He has used electricity m his home for 15 years. Under the old rates of the Montana Power Company, Mr. Stork was a pleased and satisfied customer. Under the new rates, which have been in effect for the past 13 months, he is an enthusiast. “My house is thoroughly equipped with electrical appliances”, said Mr. Stork to a reporter for this paper, as he stepped from the Power Company’s office the other day, waving a receipted bill. “1 have 35 electric lamps, a four-burner, superautomatic Hotpoint Hughes electric range, electric water heater, toaster, vacuum cleaner, curling iron, perco­ lator and waffle iron. “During May, June and July, my bills averaged $9.95 a month. But if it cost twice as much, 1 wouldn’t abandon a single electrical appli­ ance in the house. In fact, the rate is so reasonable that if we go out of an evening and leave all the lights burning, 1 never worry, knowing that the more current we use the cheaper the rate.” Charles D. McAboy, of the McAboy Plumbing Company, has an apartment at 14 North Montana Street equipped with 15 electric lights, electric range, fan, vacuum cleaner, flat iron and curling iron. “Our bill for June”, Mrs. McAboy told the reporter, “was $4.70, and for July $3.85. 1 am passionately fond of music, but I would rather give up my piano than my electric range, which is 25% cheaper to operate than the gas range we used to use.” The Montana Power Company Wherever Represented CAPITAL AND «¡¿PUTS a s s e t s o y s a P r o p t e r t bot cro*matir« is m M Ì M t> t o 4 a t e méthode vie i £ Former State Senator J W Antler i ton, seeking the nomination on the farmer-labor ticket this year for the offiee of Unite» States senator, does not hesitate In his pubiie speeches to challenge Governor Dixon.

Little Miss Phyllis Armitage, aged 12, asserted her rights as a ranch er’s daughter this season and took up her position on a rake at the Sunny Slope ranch Monday of this week her team became frightened at a dog in the meadow and ran away. The first Jump of the frightened ani­ mals threw the little lady onto the rake tongue but she remembered the Instructions given her in case of an accident and made no attempt to es cape from her perilous position to be caught in front of the rake teeth and dragged to death. Instead, she reached backward with one arm to encircle the seat brace and with the other retained her hold upon the lines. Standing, or reclining, thus she rode for about a mile but drove into the corral seated, as if nothing had happened. She was considerably bruised and had the skin scraped oft her little body in several places but is ready to go out again if the sore spots get well before haying is over. Mrs. Hathaway drove to Jackson Friday to see Ralph Quigley, afflict­ ed with smallpox, and to vaeeiaate all who desired i t Fifteen availed themselves of the opportunity. Mr. Quigley was quite ill, being at the very worst stage of the disease that day, but there was nothing danger­ ous about his condition nnd he is do­ ing nicely at this writing. Several cases of smallpox were reported hut none ether than Ralph Quigley could be located.
