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.
THE WINIFRED TIM VOL. 23 WINIFRED, MObRI . DAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1935. OfitiCAL 80010 ES F MONTANA, HELENA. , NO. 32 CATS Some persons seem to have a perverted sense of justice when dealing with dumb animals. In the past some farmers have dis- posed of their surplus cats by the simple method of hauling them away from home and turning them loose in the vicinity of town. Perhaps they turn them loose with a little wish that the tabbies will find happy homes with good families—at any rate, they are rid of the cats—whether the cats starve to death or not, and most anyone hates to kill cats and thereby fall heir to seven years of bad luck. Still we are supposed to be living in an age of enlight- enment, and civilized humans are supposed to be humane. But is it humane to turn a cat loose to shift for itself and to pester others who probably have too many cats already? Nor are farmers the only ones guilty of this unprincipled practice. Those living in town have been known to take cats to the country and turn them out into the wide open spaces for farmers to either kill or haul back to town. The most sportsmanlike and humane way to dis- pose of unwanted cats, and the way recommended by the National Humane Society, is to buy a dime's worth of chloroform, place it in an open saucer, turn a tub over the saucer with the cats also under the tub, sealing the edge with damp paper or cloth. Within a few minutes the cats will simply purr themselves to sleep and a painless death. Those who are familiar with this method of killing cats say that the cats seem to like the smell of chloroform for they are always found with their nose in the dish, and a dime's worth of chloroform will kill a tubfull of cats. In killing cats in this humane way one runs very little chance of incurring misfortune and no chance at all of making enemies. Against Embargo Recently the Associated Press quothed a high official of the Standard Oil Company as saying that there appeared to be no good reason why the United States should discontinue their oil trade with Italy. To do so would undoubtedly mean that the oil com- panies would lose some thousands of dollars. Undoubtedly the oil interests look forward to an increase in business now that Italy is at war. In other words, war or no war, nothing must interfere with the thriving business of the oil magnates. The President may request that certain rules be observed in the way of safeguarding our neutrality and industrial leaders will gladly abide by them so long as said rules do not hamper their business. When neutrality becomes a losing proposition from the standpoint of \Big Business\ then they will not hesitate to force our nation into another conflict in order to protect‘their precious foreign trade, just as the capital- ists of 1917 forced us into the World War to protect their foreign investments. But Mr. John Public is just a little more enlightened than he was eighteen years ago. However, We Can't Be Neutral In This War There is one war in which our country cannot remain neutral --war against fire. That war has been going on for many years. It will never end completely --but good soldiery can win many valuable victories. During its course, the enemy has caused destruction running into the billions of dollars --and many thousands of lives. The war exists because of individual carelessness, Individual ignorance, individual lethargy. Fire prevention is almost entirely an individual matter. It is up to each property -owner, each man- ager of a business, each farmer. The best building and inspection laws are impotent in the face of public indifference --the finest fire department can do relatively little, if the public refuses to help. It is not only a duty but a privilege to enlist in the war against fire. And the duties are simple. Learn what causes fire, and how fire may be prevented. Then apply that knowledge -- to- day, tomorrow, every day in the year. Fix that faulty wiring --and have it done by an experienced electrician. Check that old fur- nace, now that the cold season is upon you. Throw away those old rags and newspapers and magazines that you have stacked In the attic and basement --and that you will never use. Store that gaso- line or benzine in approved, safe containers. And remember that the place for matches and cigarettes is the ash tray --not the rug, the bed, or the garage floor. We can tight fire successfully. During the last few years substantial progress has been made, and the loss is now well under the $500,000,000 a year level established not so long ago That progress should serve to remind us how much more remains to he done --and how easy it is to achieve definite results once we really go after them.

McClure 11*.noaper ItiodAesUL WPM Sorel.' if M ILT MARRICK'S angers drummed with soft impatience on his desk. Then he got up and for the tenth Um* stopped to listen at his open door. No, she wasn't coming yet. Peet nine now. Ruth Royal during these two years as his 'secretary in the Mer- rick Advertising agency never had been late. Until this morning. And this morning of all mornings! When fate lay in what would be re- vealed in her lovely face when she would emerge through that door con- necting their offices. Would It be yes, or no? For months he had been like a timid swimmer atop a springboard, bet with Insufficient courage to take the actual leap. And now It was as though he had positively cast off by proxy. Be- cause of yesterday; yesterday, when he had walked firmly out and bought an expensive engagement ring. He wrote a letter then and placed It Inside the velvet case beneath the ring. Now, how to get it to her? It was like a voice from Paradise when on the way out at five, Ruth said, \My mother's with me for a week. She's keen to meet the man I'm working for. Couldn't you drop into the apartment?\ Ruth bad the merriest fire crackling In the grate when he arrived. Some one said, quietly. \Miss Ruth, the coffee's served.\ And Wit decided that when the la- dies preceded him to the dining room he would place the precious box on her pillow as he passed Ruth's bedroom door where she would discover It. He had not slept, thinking of Ruth and of Joe Allerton—he'd seen them together lately more than enough. The electric light button clicked In the adjoining room! Instantly 3111re eyes focused on the connecting door. His heart leapt like a racehorse taking final hurdles in com- petition with other aspirants. He yearned for the light of acquiescence on her face. Some one was with her. \Let it he anyone but Allerton,\ he prayed. \It's serious, Ruth.\ The voice was low, secretive; and Milt knew that voice--joe Allerton's. \We've simply got to get together,\ (he failed to catch the next pleading words but read his own suspicions into them) \otherwise the bottom will drop out of everything.\ • • • • • • • After a curt \Good morning,\ she said firmly: \Let's get these orders straightened out first, I've had so many complaints about mistakes—\ Her words all pertaining to business, bumped up In a huddled mass In his brain through a telephone buzzer on Ruth's outer' desk. She hastened to answer It. And suddenly lie was alone again when the door opened gently. Some one peeped In, then entered noiselessly. Milt's face paled. \Why—Anne!\ His eyes were gray clouds. \You! What have you come here for?\ \I'm glad you're going to marry her, Milt. Any girl would give her ears to marry you. You've always been so fine, staunch.\ She besitated as though her throat were hocked. \Only —she doesn't know yet.\ \You see, Milt, it's my one bad habit. I'll always steal. Becautte I can't seem to help It, somehow. I took Miss Royal's ring; found it en the pillow when I went in to turn the bed down. I go from place to place, you know. But I left there this morning.\ An aching void for toe girl he had once adored gaped In Milt's gentle heart, lie had helped her so many times to escape punishment. Anne opened her purse, took out the square -cut purple box with reverent care; put It safely into Milt's hands. It was only then that her dark eyes misted. \Don't do it this way, Milt.\ she begged. \I mean—not the writing part Tell her. She'll like it better, Milt. It seems sort of cowardly to do it this way.\ Milt looked hard into her thin face. \Thank you, Anne,\ he said with diffi- culty. \I will.\ Suddenly he straightened up to his full SIX feet and slapped his thumb over the buzzer mightily. Ruth came running In. Her eyes were red, strained. Without a doubt she had been crying. \Come here, Ruth. What's the mat- ter?\ Her lips quivered. \Oh everything that was ever the matter in the whole world. The business Is going to ruin and you can't see—can't see—\ \—the reason why,\ he supplied in a thick certain voice. \Well—this is it!\ His arms closed tight about her. \This Is why!\ \Oh. Milt,\ she was saying breath iessly, \what's been the matter with you? This curious hedge you seemed to have around youl I felt you cared nbout me, but somehow we couldn't get through to one another.\ He kissed her hard. \We have now,\ he Said triumphantly. 'And all the time you were getting more absent-minded than ever. Send- ing the vvronsinaterlal mtg. killaltut The Citadel of Our Freedom By RAYMOND PITCAIRN National Chairman Sentinels of the Republic The Supreme Court of the United States meets this session in its new home across from the Capitol at Wash- ington Beautiful and impressive, the struc- ture cost some $9,000,000 to build. That, it has been pointed out, is about half the price of a battleship. But, as a defender of our freedom, the Supreme Court building with all that it represents is many times more valuable than any dreadnaught. The battleship guards us against dan- cers from without. The Supreme Court—as protector and interpreter of the Constitution—guards our government and our freedom against dangers from within. It is the Supreme Court that says \Stop\ when our personal liberty or the safeguarding provisions of our Consti- tution are violated It is the citadel of our freedom. There have been efforts—both past and recent — to weaken that citadel. There have been attempts to transfer the powers vested in the Supreme Court to other branches of government. Firmly the people have resisted such proposals Emphatically they have dem- onstrated that they want no stone re- moved from the fortress that guards their constitutional rights And they are right. They know that when that fortress falls, the freedom assured them under the Constitution can perish with it. Resnember, it was the Declaration of Independence that won our freedom; it was the Constitution that preserved it; and it is the Supreme Court that pro- tects it. BEAUTY TALKS By Marjorie Duncan ri;?..r:fr THE CLEAN LOOK E VERYWHERE you go In health anal beauty circles you hear a great 'teal abom \that clean look.\ The phrase is becoming as popular as s snre-11re wisecrack or a first seller In slogans. It refers to much, much more than superficial cleanliness. It points to perfection and polish. Some time ago In the course of is 34attty lecture I refert;tiff 111 \that dean, crisp look.\ I said two things were necessary to achieve It. Perhaps my audience ex- pected me to say: Soap and brushes. But I had reference to: Respect for one's self and respect and thoughtful- ness for those around us. And again I repeat that I do not mean merely bathing or washing face and hands. These are Importent—very important —yes. Butt they are elementary, fundamental. I take it for granted 'hat every woman has made a habit of bathing every day and keeping her skin clean. But that clean, crisp look goes fur her, It Includes brushing the hair. The woman who can boast that clean look never has her hair disheveled Every strand and wisp is In place. For trimness and neatness go with that clean look. Your coiffure niay be elaborately intriguing or very Sim pie. The arrangement does not mat- ter—St least It is secondary In im- portance to a neat, \always -in -place\ arrangement which is another way of '.riving \that clean look \ Brows must he brushed too. The.% are an important factor In the per fect picture. And If a little wild hair. here and there decides to march haeb ward or out of line It must he dis eiplinerl. If brushing won't help—then pluck. But, mind you, pluck only the tinnily hairs, for natural brows are now the vogue. A clean, clear complexion is an other important factor. Discolorations oiliness, shine, hlackheada or erup tient' all take something away from 'that clean look.\ Well -kept hands, perfectly groomed nails come In for their share of at tentlon too. As for clothes --buttons should he where they belong, stocking seam': straight, heels kept in repair and shoes ',dished, sults and coats brushed free from dust, anal lingerie touches al ways fresh and dainty. Even make-up when properly applied adds to that clean look. teem to relax.

Before rind after her lunch eon she rests for a few mintitee. Even If Pile IS at her desk—she simply lets her mind become a complete blank Then she \lets go\ shoulders. arms, her whole body. Or while waiting for her lunch to be served she relaxes, the merchandise, making clients mad until Joe Allerton and I were ahnost beside ourselves. Only this morning Joe said the bottom would fall out of everything unless we could do some- thing; get together—\ \So that's what Joe was saying!

We are informed that the management of the Junior Class has made arrange- ments to present \Out of the Fog\ at the Suffolk Community hall Saturday night, November 9th. After the play the Suffolk Community will put on a dance with music by Mrs. Brooks and sons. Meaning of Word \Caucus\ The word caucus originated In Bos- ton as the nn me of a political club early lu the Eighteenth century. Since Indian names were favorites for clubs the word Is believed to have been in- spired by the Algonquin Indian word \caw -caw -was -sough\ meaning \one who advises, urges, pushes on.\ It Is now used In most English speaking countries but the American meaning I e generally defined as a meeting of leaders of a parry or a group to de- cide on policies, nominations, etc., for the party or group,—Pathfinder Maga- zine. Microbes Microbes undoubtedly preeent the greatest extremes in nature. They vary greatly In size, some being 5,000 times larger than others. They live in a temperature range of 770 degrees, some being able to live at 459 degrees F. below zero while others thrive at 320 degrees F. above R. And some apparently are deathless, AS they have been found in a revivable condition in coal deposits one- hundred million years old.—Collier's Weekly.

The Sidesaddle Fashion Time eldesaddle for women riders, now considered old-fashioned, was a sensation when it was introduced In England several centuries ago by Anne of Bohemia, Richard 11's queen. The queen, who went a good way toward curbing the wild impetuosity of her husband, brought the sidesaddle with her from her native country. The Fox Shark The fox shark, also known as thresh- er shark and swingletall, is a peculiar species abounding in all warm seas, especially In the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. It feeds on herring and other small fish, rushing into schools of them and threshing about with Its long tail.

Mrs. Gibbons had contracted pneumo- nia early this week and was taken to Lewistown Wednesday afternoon. Death occured with- in two hours after her arrival at the hospital. Among her friends and rela- tives the concensus of opinion is that her death probably hastened by an injury she sustained in Lewistown early last spring when a large sign belonging to the Judith Theater fell and struck Mrs. Gibbons in the back. She spent some time in the hospital following the accident. Margaret Ann Gibbons was 72 years of age and was a native of Ohio. She has resided near Wini- fred for the past 27 years. She is survived by her husband, Dom- inic Gibbons, two sons, James of Winifred and William of Evans- ton. III., a brother, William Ken- nedy of Aurora, Ill., a sister, Mrs. Ella McKay of Hebron, Ill. and six grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at Hilger tomorrow and inter- ment will be in the Catholic cemetery in Lewistown. Her son William is expected to be present. Mrs. Gibbons leaves a host of friends in the Winifred commun- ity, one and all of whom looked up to her as a woman of except- ionally fine character.
