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.
8. Kendall, Montana, August 19, 1902. NOTES AT RANDOM. WIT AND WISDOM IN BOOKS. • Jamaica hopes to export over 1/1,- 000,000 bunches of bananas this year. Among the articles made in Philip- pine prisons are tables inlaid with pearl and oyster shells. A robber in Philadelphia, trying to escape from a policeman, ran through a trolley car and set the passengers in a panic. During one week there were no few- er than 27 suicides committed in Madrid. Love and financial troubles claim most * of the victims. Paul Rever's house in Boston, from which he started out on the \ride\ on April 19, 1775, immortalized by Longfellow, is now a \Banes Italiana.\ Selling elevated railroad tickets for 50 cents apiece is the latest ruse adopt- ed by swindlers who prey bpon newly landed immigrants at the Battery in New York. There were by the last printed an- nual report 1,191 retail liquor dealers In Maine, a prohibition state, 15 whole- sale dealers, 2 rectifiers, 5 breweries, 260 retail dealers and 29 wholesale dcakrs-iossl4liquoF., The very perfection of imperfection is to be found in Parisian post offices. They are dirty, illy ventilated and in- sufficiently manned, and the transac- tion of business with indifferent clerks is a trial of pretense. Malone wants stamps, it is better to buy them at a tobacco store, where there is also a post box for letters, etc. WilAT DRESSMAKER SAYS. Box -plaited box coats are extremely modish. Clover leaf patterns appear in a num- ber of silks. Usually the soft toned grays look well with yellow or brown hair. Basket weaves are much in evidence. Simplicity, not plainness, is the fash- ion. There is a good deal of moral support in a nice gown and hat.—Ladies' Home Journal. Elaborate tucking in yoke effect serves to perfect the fit of many a dress skirt. Trailing skirts shortened imme- diately across the back are supposed by the wily Frenchwoman to make her appear younger. Red is struggling hard, and success- fully, too, to.compete with its less bril- liant rivals, but it is such a trying shade that few are bold enough to at- tempt it. When, it is becoming there Is really nothing lovelier, and, strange as it may seem, its brightness is one of the summer's smartest fads. THE AMERICAN TYPE. Chicano Professor Says • Distinct One Is Not Possible to Evolution. Selfishness in public life is a crime against one's highest ambitions.—The Conqueror. Women love the lie that saves their pride, but never an unflattering truth. —The Conqueror. It is as easy to escape from death as from a woman when once she's after you.—Twenty-six and One. If the sentence: \Thy desire shall be unto him,\ was laid on Eve as a curse; yet her daughters have found their deepest happiness therein.—The Wind- ing Roan. The patron saint of bachelor girls Ii a saint of expedients. He has to be. He couldn't hold down his job or his halo if he were not.—The Misde- meanors of Nancy. While with mathematical accuracy two and two always make four, by adding a certain amount of personal- ity, the result will nearly equal five.— The College Student. De meanin' of courage an' common sense must be understood. Many a man have died from havin' too much bravery, but common sense never killed nobody.—The Black Cat Club. If the ladies whom gallant gentle- men delight to serve could guess what scant touchstones of worth these same gentlemen sometimes carry into the adored presence, many a handsome head would be carried with less as- surance.—The Valley of Decision. Is such a thing as a distant phys- ical type of American possible to evolution? According to an Interest• ing series of experiments made by Prof. Philip B. 1Voodworth, of Lewis Institette, Chicago, and described it. an article Called the Physical Amer. ican in Leslie's Monthly, it is not. He waives all lines of the parallels. and instead of pointing to mean tem- peratures an the source of differen- tiation in statures and temperaments, he finds that moisture in the air is the great agency that is to stamp the Floridan wish the color, stature and bulk of the Welshman, and the resident of Arizona with the link prOportions, high cheek bones and leathery complexion of the Arab. Three generations should accomplish the evolution of either type, and the atmospheric moisture or lack of moisture 'should be the agency. From this out-of-doors study the professor has come to in -door tent. peratures, in which most men exist most of the time and almost all wom- en live nearly all the time. In n Item -lea of experiments and ohierva - lions extending through ten years, in the classroom and elsewhere, Prof: Woodworth has reached some inter- esting conclusions. tHE FRILLS OF FASHION. Bowknots are a favorite applique de- sign. Long sash ends of black tulle adorn the evening gowns. Lace stocks are much more chic than stiff ribbons and collars. 'White wash kid gloves are useful to wear with the shirt waist suit. A belt buckle in front, one in black, and one on each side are none too many. Bands of flowered lawn are inserted into the newest wide turnover collars and cuffs. An odd parasol is of white satin, per- fectly plain, except for a gahand of violets which encircle the edge. Quantities of flowers are used as berthas, chetelaines, and sprays for evening wear, and some of the dainti- est sleeves are composed entirely of chains of flowers. A pretty handkerchief stock is one of those in part nouveau designs, flow- ers in colors, with long waving stems, finishing the edges of fine white handkerchiefs, the flowers finished with edges of embroidery in white. Smart summer shoes and dainty - openwork or lace trimmed stockings lend their share of prettiness to the general effect of modish dressing. One might say, indeed, that never before have women worn such fascinating ac- - e cessoriea. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. Words are merely the echoes of thought. Even if a man is a poor thinke; he may be a good whistler. Few men are capable of answering the arguments of a pretty woman. A yacht can stand on a tack in si- lence, but a man isn't built like a yacht. Beauty draws with a single hair— and it is fiometimes dyed hair at that. A man without ambition is like a pan of dough without any yeast to raise it. Always think twice before you speak —and nine times out of a possible ten you will have no occasion to say a word. The truth about some men is never known until after they acquire mon- uments—and even then it isn't found upon the monuments. If there is one time more than an- other when a woman should be alone with her thoughts, it is when a pass- ing vehicle splashes mud on her new gown. Many a man has made the discov- ery too late that he misjudged his en- emy—especially after attempting to - lick him and getting beautifully licked , himself.—Chicago Daily News.
