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, Montana, February 24, 1903. 7. GOLDEN GA -2 CITY LEADS. San Francisca, Shows the Largeet Per- centage of Suieldes--Chleago • Han Ise Whirr& The number of people who volun- tarily shuffled off this mortal coil in Aruerican audpthyr i nifies during last year has been investigated by some delver in statistics arfd the follewing figures indicate the results: San Fran- cisco leads with the largest ratio, 39.1 per 100,000 of population. Nexteornes another pacific emirate' ty, Los Angeles, with a ratio of 29.8. The reader has naturally been looking for. Chierigio. and that,e,ity does, in fact, .come next with a retro of 24.0. f011owed by the nelkhboring city of MilWaiikee. whose ratio is 22.2. New Orleans was the scene of the self-desteuetion , of 21.5 persons per 100.000 of population, anti Cincinnati followed close with 21.2. New Haven is next with 20.9, aiql then comes the borough of Aianhatlae with 20.0, though greater New York ikS a whole is well down the list with i a ratio of only 13.6. This iv less than Roches- ter.

The table referring to American eities is somewhat rlifer,olt to exnlein. Why the city of the velden gate. end California. with its el , eien e rlimete, its senshine, its; fruit end it flhwere should show the greatest number f suicides seems a inveserv. enlese the prevence of a terve (\Meese --elliesien exPlnins it. The high suicide rate of Chicago is, perhaps. accounted for by the rush and strnavie of that prep t ei4y and the-4arge tureen element it contains—a foreign element, more- over, which comes meinly from t.\Se enuotried ivhsire suicide is most . fre- °tient. The eatre is perhaps true .f Milwaukee nnil of CiReltrat o l. tbe Wit rate at New Orleans may possfbly be attributed to its reletlen to France and the ideas and traditicns brought here from refit, the eeicide carital of the world. But New York city easts a cloud over some of these pan-Irina- tione. Here are the large foreign non- elationn. the stress and strain of and working, th• poverty, the ex- 'eltement. Yet Philadelnbia, tips sleening city of the humorous tiara- _ -e-oraplseers, has -a higher -tatio of 'FM - - - rides than greater New York. Add how is it to be exPlained OM New Haven leads all the other New Fng- land cities in the number of sneides? St. Paul and ithinespolip lie side by side, but 11.4 and seems Min'V'^00111 , t 5 P reit() is in St. Paul it is but 6.5. It at the ertneirteionst must be that there is no meti:od insuicide mad- ness and that the effort to reduce it to rule is doomed to failure. - _ CARP OUSTING WILD DUCK. Malcom Themselves, They Have Dre• •troired the Wild wee Fields to Outset), Canada. The singular eorplaint comes from various parts of northern Ontario that fish are responsible for the disappear- ance of certain kinds of geme. In lo- calitiee which were former ry noted for the excellent duck shooting which they offered the birds are now not to be had at all. The duck., geese and other aquatic birds were formerly in the habit of frequenting the large fields of wild rice In the lakes and streams of parts of Ontario, but now these fields have been, In many instances. -destroyed by the Germiu carp, which - has found its way into these waters. The vegetarian diet of this detestable fish not only reins the flavor of its own flvsb but exhausts the food tuottly of some of the most desirable forms of feathered game, says' the New York Sun. 'The Ontario iiieueeter of fish• cries, who has been in north- ern Ontario for the last few weeks, reports that the German carp has not only become Onneer- to other fish. as has been I requent- cl:limed. hut that in Cook's bay.

The same is true of the Holland river. where there were at one time 1.5C0 acres of rice. The carp have eaten it root, branch and seed. ..The almost incredible part of it is that the fish have entirely destroyed the fields in one year.

NOVEL PRISON REFORII. Italy Proposms Compensation for Non Who Have Been Unjustly Condemned. A A new criminal bill is about to be discussed in Italy. thud it is thought in Rome that it will be passed. It proposes to concede to those found .to have been unjurely oceedemned to prison an indemnity, to be decided (spun by the courts, says a report to the aka go Tribune. If the person hes been in prison through a real judicialerroe the indem- nity will in some way correspond to the financial lose which be and his family have suetained. while if he has been condemned through the had faith of a third person, through false testi- mony (for whieh, of copes., the court which condemned him Is not respon- sible), the indemnity will be less, but •t lee atit sewillit a re ttie *heresy i thal tO begin life anew. It has been proposed to Indemnify these living when the law passes who have already been released from un- merited condemnations, or the families of tiller who hate died while undergo- ing unjust sentence. as NOM!'
