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 authorities are going after the \get rich quick\ concerns in the east, with the result that many of them are now closed. While their officers ate trying to get from under, the thousands of dupes are weeping over their invest- ments, which are not. It is surprising• how many people there are who are willing to invest in companies that promise enormous weekly dividends. The people who hand over their hard eained cash to these swindling con- cerns never stop to think that they are playing a game that must be a fraud from the very nature ot things. Take the so-called \turf exchanges\ for an example. The managers of these con- cerns have been leaping enormous profits, and money ha.s been rolling in- to their coffers by the hundreds of thousands of dollars monthly. order to keep up a semblance of doing business on the square the officers have paid dividends on certain investments; but these dividends never came out of legitimate profits; the money vi as takun Out of one man's pocket and part of it given to some one rise, in the shape of a dividend. While it is not pleasant to realize that many unsophisticated, but well meaning people, have lost their money in these swindling concerns, yet they do not deserve a great amount of sym pathy. They ought ti know better ; they should be a‘Aare of the fact th,at \it is the other fellow's game,\ and he is certain' to rsike in .the %thole pot sooner or later. But Si) long as there is _a - sucker_born every minute the pub- lic must be prepared to hear of the successful opeiation of swindling de- vices of one kind or another. New Discovery in Iliedicine. •I'he medical profession has made a new discovery that may prove of great service to the saving of lile: The dis- patches of late have been tecording in- stances when people have apparently beet' on the verge of dissolution, ,w; -ten the administering oh formaline restore' d the vital forces and the patients safely passed the critical stage of their disease. It it can do all that is claimed for it, formaline will be of the utmost value in the practice of medicine. A few days ago Mrs. L. W. Perkins, of Helena, was brought hack from death's door. According to the report from the bed- side; the woman was apparently dying of blood poisoning and so deplorable and desperatewas her case that the at- tending physician gave up all hopes of saving her life. He had tried all the usual remedies, but without success and, at last, decided upon the use ot formaline, a new rernedy for this par- ticular trouble and which has been !used but a few times in the United States. An injection of formaline was given and, although before such injection the woman's temperature was io6 and pul- sations of her heart were so rapid they could not be counted, Ave hours alter the injection, the patient's temperature had dropped to 104, and the next day it stood at 102, with pulse at 105. Another injection was administered and three days after the first injection the temperature was normal and the pulse was coo. This was on February and, and today Mrs Perkins says that she never felt better. The saving of this woman's life is not only a triumph for medicine, ob- serves the Great Falls Leader, but . is also a If iumph for the Montana doctor, who dared to try the experiment and consequently a triumph for the medi- cal fraternity ofthe stale. To be sure the experiment was not tiied until all other methods had been tried and had failed, but this was perfectly proper and the medical fraternity in Montana is to be congratulated in being up with the times. Give the Prospector a Chance. A milting journal favors a national home for aged and infirm prospectors and miners. And ‘A hy not ? There are all kinds of, \homes\ distributed throughout the United States, and as a rule the inmates are no inure worthy of protection from . the \stings and arrows of outrageous fortune\ than the pros- pector and miner. What character in our national lite is more heroic than the prospector ? What class of men are more patient, !upend and persistent than thcy who go forth into the hills to work and search for the precious metals? And what class of citizens get less for the hardships and trials they enduie The products of the mines constitute pernianent wealth. All other forms of production selves but a temporary purpose. In the rush to put up homes for the poor, the sick and the gird, the mii.er and rrospector should . not he over- looked. Of course there area . good many \old boys\ who would avail themselves of the opportunity of re- tteating to such an institution. There would be no trouble to find occupants fur all the beds that might be set up ; but what ot that ? *1 he government can well afford to take care of them all. Up to this time the old prospector has had little else than hard knocks, infer - grub stakes and worse brands of whiskey. lie has earned something better. Having spent all his liteerect- ing castles in the air, it would be alto- gether appropriate if, at the end, he could move into a real castle—the one that had eluded him during all his wanderings. Now that William R. Hearst has reached his presidentjal boom, what is he going to do aith it ? The railroad people in Washington have succeeded in knockiag out the plan for a railroSd commission. William Jennings Bryan detlares he will never sit down to the same table with that mean man Grover Cleveland; and the latter hopes he will make his threat good. Advertising brings business. That is conceded by successful merchants the world•oves, An ad. in the CHRON- ICLE reaches the most desirable class of consumers: Lessons in sewing are to be given in the Helena public schools. Now there is some common sense in that. In- struction in the gentle art of making bread, and in the construction of the piquant gooseberry pie might also be given with profit to the pretty misses. Pugilists almost . invariabty land in either one of two places, the peniten- tiary or the consumptive's ward of a hospital. Did you ever notice that? This observation is suggested by a dis- patch from Maine which tells of Mike Daly and George La Blanche, the \Marine being sent to the peniten- tiary for larceny. It is not many years ago that the \Marine\ was a pugilist of some note. He gained his first repu- tation by knocking out Jack Dempsey, delivering him what is known as the \pivot blow,\ a new trick in the ring at that time. Dentistry \\gf •01'711Ir \14 Dr. Aubrey H.
