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.

KENDALL CHRONICLE. The North Moccasins Have Yielded ti I heir l'housands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. I. KENDALL, MONTANA, AUGUST 12, 1902. No. 21. MRSONS PILING OP STONE. Work on Two Fine Buildings is Being Rushed. A Hotel that Will be a Credit -- Finishing Touches on Other Structures—More to Come. Stone masons are busy these daya on the buildings being put up at the lower end of McKinley avenue. On the hotel they are well along on the first story. Judging by the plans of 00 architezt and the work already done, Shaules' hotel will by all odds be the finest struc- ture of the kind in the county. The ex- terior walls will be of rough gray sand- stone, pointed up and finished in a man- ner that will give it the appearance of great solidity. On the ground floor will be a large office and sitting room, a fine bar and billiard room, and a dining room, barbershop and kitchen. These rooms will all have street trot:tap. Now that fair weather is matured the work of completing the bnilding will go on rap- idly and without interruption. The ho- tel will be a credit to the Owner and the town. The exterior of the Cook building is so far along as to be practically finished, with the exception of putting on the reef and stone battlement. This is another building that would be it credit to any town in the axle. On the ground floor will be the postoffice and the private of- fice of the Kendall Invistnaent companY. and a fine large room suitable for mer- chandising. Some of the rooms on the upper floor have already been spoken for as housekeeping apartments. The Johnson building, as it is called, on the opposite corner, is now receiving a coat of plaster. It will be entirely fin- ished in a short time. It. too, is a fine building. The work of filling in the street, making it conform to the estab Belied grade, will begin this week. This will involve a great quantity of earth, and the expense will be no small sum, but the company is to stop at no half way measure. It will put everything in shape for business. There are a number of cottages nnder construction, and it is said that a good many more will go up between now and November. KENDALL KING. The Shaft is Going .
