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.

CAMPAIGN NOTES. _— • It is the general impression through- out the county that the positions of treasurer and clerk and recorder will be filled most creditably by J. M. Croft and C. M. Kelly, who h3ve already demon- strated their irustworthinees, and the awful bawl made by the opposition on their re -nomination falls flat in the lace of the switching of Thomas Shaw from the eheriff's office to the position of can- didate for the treasurership. J. D. Waite is still a krone favorite . for state eenatcr in spite of the effurte made by the Denrocrat to mould public (pillion for the benefit of Fang Heinze.
