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.
SP 7 he' North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, MAY 37, 1902. ift\Itt No. 10. THE NORTH MOCCASIN GOLD Preparations' to Gristly Increase the Outplit. ti* The Kendall Mill is Crushing Ore, and the Barnes -King Has a Fine Showing. _ The Kendall mill is in operation these days, though the machinery is not in motion continuously. Nearly all of the tanks have been filled with ore, and cyanding the same is in progress. When ore was put into the steel tanks the weight had a tendency to spring the bot- toms, and where this occurred leakage Was the result. It was determined to gc over the empty tanks and recalk them. As soon as the tanks that are already full are discharged theyoriii be similarly treated. After this:. las *en (lone the tanks will give no furthlassa4uble. Waller from the pumping station has not yet readied the reservoir. This delay has been occasioned by- thii\springing\ of a piece of steel shafting. While the ma- chinery at the punfiNng station was motion a wrench accidently fell from the hand of the man on duty, and lodged so as to obstruct the movement of the shaft.. The shaft was taken to Great Palls to be straightened. When rlaced in position, however, it could not be operated. „It was then taken to Helena. IVIien the repair is made, it is announced, water will be forced to the reservoir. Superins, tendent Lang is confident everything will be in good running, order in at very short time. But little work is being done in the mine pending the running of the mill to its full capacity. The shaft is being sunk, and it has reached a depth of about 250 feet. It will be seek to the 300 -foot level. Mining Notes. The drift from the Barnes -King shaft has struck the ore. This Isomd for the company and the camp. The drift is in from the shaft about 100 feet, and as it starts from the shaft at a depth of 100 feet, it show the ore body is going down There is no doubt but the ore body in the Barnes -King takes on the same charac- teristic as that of the Kendall, and will be found rich and extensive at. depth. Work in other parts of the mine is pro- gressing, and the mill is running stead- ily. Work on the Kendall-King is being pushed. The tunnels are being extend- ed and the indications are most favors - The ore body in the Abbey Ii — improv- hog with every day's work. A BREEZY STAGE TRIP. Passengers from Benton Have a Thrill- ing Experienee.. Last Monday the Lewistown -Benton stage met with an accident which re- sulted in the death of a horse. When at the top of Shonkin hill, not far from Benton, while the rough lock was being applied, one of the horses became (right- ed by the unhooking of a trace, and be- gan to kick. This set the four animals to running. They dashed down the kill, John Decker, the driver, keeping thena in the road. By the time they reached the bottom one of the wheelers got his feet over the lead -bar. This threw him and his leg was broken. In crossing a culvert the king -pin came out and the horses left the coach and the passengers behind. In the course of time the coach and passengers were taken to the next station. A second runaway occurred on the hill near Rocky bridge. This was too much for the passengeis, and while the coach was whizzing along they jumped for safety. W. H. Tolbert, John Brooks, Harrison Decker and wife were the pass- engers. SCHOOL MATTERS. Another Vote Must be Taken—Previous Ballot Illegal. Owing to a flaw in the school election proceedings held here in ApriLthey have been declared illegal, and a new election and a vote on the special school tax must be had. The matter was submit- ted to the county attorney, and he gave it as his opinion that the voters must come together agaia and ballot for trus- tees, as well as express their wishes as to the special tax. Hifore the latter matter can be put to a vote, however, the amount of taxable property in the district most be ascertained and the fig- ures presented to the State board. It is hoped the proceedings may be put through in time to erect a school build- ing lefore the fall term commences. This is likely to be the Case, as the peo- ple here are intereiga in having the matter expedited, and settled satisfac- torily in the intereet of education.

Two Weeks Without Sleep Causes No Inconvenience—Protract- ed Attacks of Insomnia. A man going two weeks Without skep, and suffering no apparent ill effects on mind or body, seems an impossibility, and something beyond human experi- ence, yet such is a habit that has attach- ed itself to Julius Harmer, and who is doing the usual amount of work for a person of his calling: Over on a prospect beyond the Ken- dall none Hapner may be found, and where he tuts been for a month. He is at work developing a claim owned by a man residing at Helena. Being too far away to board in town Helmer has con- structed a rude hut of logs, rock e and pine boughs, :nut as he expects ft:is com- plete his contract' in a couple of montns, he is content to occupy his present premises and make no complaint thereat. But the most remarkable feat.ase about the man is his ability to go without sleep for eperiod often covering fourteen days, and not euccumb to the strain. This habit is not a voluntary one on his pert, however, it first came about after a pro- tracted siege of sickness some three years ago in Salt Lake. While working in it. mine at Park City, Utah, Hapner was taken down with typhoid fever, which put him in the hospital at Salt Lake. The disease ran its course, and in time lie left the hospital a convalescent. In two months he was sufficiently re,:overed to do light work about a, untie; but he discovered he could not sleep more than five or six hours out of the twenty-four. In a few weeks insomnia lied taken a stronger hold upon him, and he quit his work and retired to his hrother'e ranch, hoping rest and change of air would re- store hie health. In speaking of his eubeeqnent experience Hapner says: \I rapidly improved on the railch; that is, I gained bodily strength and my nervous system . seemed to regain its old-time character. While I thought I was on the high road to complete restora- tion, there sprang up a new complica- tion; suddenly the desire or necessity for sleep disappeared altogether, and for two weeks I did not sleep a wink, and strange enough I did not feel any ill ef- fects therefrom. I put in my waking hours at night reading or quietly resting in my bed. NVork dining the day brought on fatigue as formerly, and the night's experience seemed to bring with it rest to my body and brain. At (lie end of the second week, or to be exact, at the expiration of thirteen days, a desire to sleep came over me and I dropped into profound slumber and con- tinued in a state of repose for (env -eight Insure. Upon awakening I was refreshed and had my old-time vigor. \From that date for a period of three months I enjoyed my normal sleep. Then suddenly' Wag again attacked with insomnia, anti for twelve (lays I had no sleep. Then there came a reaction and I had another enjoyable rest of two (lays. Since that time to the present these tits of insomnia come over me about once in every three or four months. \I am now as strong, and as vigorous mentally, as before my illness at Salt Lake, and yet during the past six days I have not slept a wink, and the chances are it will be another week before I am back in my normal condition. Yes; I have consulted physicians, but they have not teen able to explain the cause of my malady, if such it may be termed. %Alen has surprised them, as it has my- self and my relatives, is that my health continues good. The changer, come on me endilenly, and I ant only able to an- ticipate the attacks of illP0mlila two or three days in advance. My inability to sleep conies on suddenly, awl I And my- self wide awake all the time, and that is the only way I can explain theaeneation. If I felt any the worse fuv thieve mysteri- one attacks I would of conree be ;flam- ed, but I come out o$ them all right, eo I to not worry.\ Helmer is thirty-teo years of age, e eight] 160 pounds and is a native of Pennsylvania. Iii speaking of his rela- tives he said his fattier is at smeldnervons man, who is an employe in an electrical establishment in Pittsburg. The history of the family discloses nothing out of the ordinary. - — Sheep lion Fortanate. heports from the ranches in this vicin- ity are to the effect that the lambing eeiteon has been most•eurcessfith The percentage of loss has been small c,,m- pared with some years. While there has been considerable wet weather, it has nut been extremely cold. As it rule the stockmen had their bands of sheep well looked after by competent help, which is an important feature at this season of the year. The sheepshearing season will soon he on, which means a busy time for sheep men.
