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 session will last 60 days In which time much good or e%il can be imposed on the public. Too many laws are already on the statute books and if about two-thirds of 'them could be re- voked and a dozen or two sane measures put into law the state would be a great deal better off. But we shall wait and see what happens, then howl if we choose. Birthday Party Last Sunday evening Mr. and Mrs. John Quinn entertained in honor of the birthday anniver sary of their daughter Rose. Six tables of \500\ were in progress and a delicious two course lunch- eon was served at midnight. When scores were tallied priz es were awarded to the following ladies: Mrs. Ed Mack, high; Oda Natvig, low. Gent's scorps, to Steve Healy high; Art Jolliff low. All departed in the small hours of the morning wishing Miss .Rose many happy returns of the day.

The deceased in pass ng left to mourn her loss a husband, Mrs. Morris' brother, and a family of nine children, the youngest being an infant.

They will gather at about nine o'clock and while os- tensibly watching the passing of the year 1930 the guests will amuse themselves at cards ard anecdotes of the passine. year. Those present on this occasion will all prepare New Years reso lutions and when the clock regis- ters the passing of the old and the coming of the New Year Mr. Simpson, as host, will on behalf of those assembled give greetings to the New Year and will read the rviolutions as written by the guests. We will not be allowed to publiah these however as it may cause much embarrassment later on. At about 7:30 o'clock on Christ. mas eve our citizens were delight fully 'entertained by a bevy of school children led by their in- structor, Mrs. R.M. Porter, trav- eling about the city discoursing sweet carols which greatly pleas- ed all who were within hearing. The youthful voices could not bat impress the hardest hearts with the true spirit of Christmas, as only children know how to en- joy it. This year the merry car- re!tira.,nere forced to travel about on foot as there was no snow on the ground for the sleigh ride and the merry sleigh bells as in the several years past had played a part in this annual event. A.n Enjoyable Time Mr. and Mrs. Ed Termaat were much surprized Wednesday when their daughter and son-in- law, Mr. and Mrs. Choe Noel of Utica drove in bringing their ra- dio and setting it up for the Christmas holidays which was greatly enjoyed by all. As the dinner hour approached a big fat turkey raised on the Noel ranch west of Utica and roasted by the hostess graced the center of the table at which were seated Mr. and Mrs. Ed . Termaat, Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Heck, Mr. and Mrs. Choe Noel, J. B. Pyles, Harold Termaat, Bernice Termaat and Max Hertle. Max came down with the intention of chopping wood but after eating so much turkey he couldn't walk as far as the wood pile. Mr. and Mrs Lawrence Nelson Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wisdom and daughter Helen, Lawrence Wea- ver and Smithy Arnold were in to spend the evening and listen to the radio. The popular game of \500\ was also enjoyed. Farmers Attention! The Rock Creek local -of the Nat ilnalF armers Union of Moore will hold their regular meeting at the Moore high school on Mon day evening, Jan. 5th, at 7;30 o'clock. After the meeting is over all will adjourn to the Moore Woman's club rooms where a bounteous oyster supper will be served to all members and their families. As a favor the ladies are asked to bring bowls and spoons enough for all members of their families. Mrs. S. E. Moore, Acting Sec'y. I His Own Sentiment Last week we received a neat- ly printed and artistic Christmas greeting card from Edward Gor- don Irvin, otherwise known as \Doc\ author of the \Struttin' Along\ column in the Democrat - News. It was a four verse com- position entitled \Christmas in the Heart,\ depicting the true spirit of the Yuletide season as viewed by the author, who is 10 other than \Doc\ himself. It was originality itself and the sentiment expressed by Mr. Ir- win is truly beautiful to read and to keep in one's heart and memory. Changes Time Train No. 115 from Harlow to Great Falls on the Milwaukee, which has been arriving here at 9:00 a.m., changed time Monday and now arrives at 8:34 a.m, nearly a half hour earlier. This was made possible by shortening the running time of the transcon- tinental trains on the main line from Chicago to 'the west coast. It is also stated the evening train from Gt. Falls . to Harlow - ton will arrive practically at the same hour, or about 9:45 p.m. The Ice Rink •••••••I MO.& The old ice skating rink, thru the kindness of the city authori- ties granting the use of city wa- ter for flooding . purposes, is now a scene of much healthful and invigorating exercise by the b33 $ and girls of the community. The rink is flooded two or three. evenings each week and with the absence of show makes a very pleasurerble pastime for the young folks during the holiday vacation.
