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.

How­ ever,let’s not forget the grand march New Years Eve. at 9:30; nor the Virginia Heel, Fireman’s dance, etc. A disastrous fire occurred at the George Clemow ranch last Thun,day afternoon, when the beautiful dwell­ ing there was consumed by fire re­ sulting, it is believed, from a defect­ ive chimney. Wonderful work was done by men who came from every direction when they eaw the flames They saved all the furniture except that of l wo rooms upstairs and car ried 40 sacks of potatoes and tons of flour from the basement while fire fell all around them. Even the Del co engine was rescued It was 26 below zero but even at that one man, Mr. Richardson, was overcome by the heat and smoke.

MERRY CHRISTMAS If the Christmas season enters with a joy not kiuwu before, And you find the Yuktide spirit has besieged your very door; If a silent neighbor stops you nno says: “ Merry Christmas, Friend!’ Leaving you to stand marvel atj the choer his few vv-rcts lend; i If you ovonder at the singing of, new carols on the a ght, I And the skies seem more of ¡-pies-: dor in the stilly Eastern light; If your firosido, though humble, in the spell of Christmas Eve Ne’er before as strangely glow­ ing, brings a thrill you cant believe, j It’s because Montana's sending' “Merry Christina»’’ to the wore!1 From a Land of Shining Mountain«»1 and of friendships warm unfurku; J From the hearts of men who bu Usd' long ago those fearless trails * And whose courage, unrestrained, n their children now preva'ls. | They have learned to share the r' treasure:, happiness and eun-j ny days With their countrymen and strangers who may chance from fore gn ways. | “ Merry Chbristrcns!’’ is their mes-, sage, “and a happy, glad New Year! May good fortune mark your tm.h- way and coni en; men t ecr lie near! — Barbara Ann dcharr, Heh na TEMPERATURE*) TUMBLE Our Greeting SPal H R iSTM AS is the season when heart callcth unto hea l. “Amidst the pcneial call to hap­ piness, the of the spirits, and stir o f the affections, which prevail at this period, what bosom can remain insensible?” said the poet. It is one day at least when suspicion, hate and gloom find l ut little space for lodgment in human breasts; when people forget the things chat worry and fix their minds upon the many thing“- for which they may be thankful; w n n the spirit of ciiccr exists in sufficient bounty to reach us all. Any unhappiness, any sense o f the thorns of life, may he sunk in contemplation of the joy which the day brings to so large a part o1 the world, especially to the children of our immediate world; for the day was bom with a Child and has remained largely a festival of the young, its sanctified ideals strengthened by childish purity, re­ creating Lith, hope and charity in their elders. Then, let us make this Christmas purposeful; a season of regenerated feeling, of love, peace and good will. I x* us hang the holly and the evergreen; let us promote the surge of joy. In this spirit, we wish you all • q A ¿Merry Christmas TUB PUBLISHERS (Copyright, 1924) All that lovely dove weather we bragged about for a Week or so yam ased all of a sudden—and left a lo of bad colds, seme with a teudem, toward whooping cough.
