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.

No. I REGARDING THE BIG DV Much Speculation as to What it Would do for Kendall Many Residents Here Prefer to. Have the Mines Operated by Present Owners At every turn the question is attired: \Will the 'deal' go through ?\ It ie burning question with every 'citizen of Fergus county, and Kendallitee take special interest in the outcome of the ne- gotiations now on foot for the sale of the Barnes -King, the Kendall, and the Wright properties to a syndicate of east- ern capitalists. It is probable the answer will not be known for a month. Opinions differ as to whether Kendall will profit by. the consummation of the deal, some taking the ground that the camp will prosper as much, and the greatest good to the greatest number will result onould the ownership of the big mines remain as at prevent, while others again take the opposite'view. Certain it is that things will take a lively turn in Kendall just as soon as the question io eattliol ong-skay Pirothe other - As matters now stand, nothing is doiug to develop or open up new ore bodies, and no expenditure . is being made in ashy way . that is not absolutely necessary to the direct production of ore to keep the mills working full capacity. E. W. King, manager of the Barnes - King mine is quoted assaying It few days ago: \It may be thirty days before it is settled as to whether this mine n ill change ownership, arid in the memitime we are not stocking up with materials, but when the question is * decided, this mine will need large quantities of timber and other materials for mining purposes, as we are practically out of everything, ore excepted.\ So things will be lively either way it gees, and tide sutimer bere a ill be em- ploymeot given to a largely iecreased number of men, and money will not be close in this prosperonseetsp. Don't worry about the \deal.\ Ken - dell will take care of itself, and will take wonderful strides in mining doting the next few years, is any event. VIRTUE ISIS KARAT FINE HERE A Canto Without a Pear,' Officer, a Church Or Sky Pilot. \This is the first St. Patrick' a day I have experienced. thst. has not been ae- com pulled by a fight of some sort, and I have been in . all the varione mining camps of the west \iines 0 68,\ observed aneold-timer on the night of the 17th, as he reviewed the incidents of the day. Kentish certainly presents some novel features in mining camp life. Since the camp was ,started it has had hut one shooting ecrape,\ For the past nine months it hail not had a peace officer, and du:ing that time there has not been all arrest made for violaCtig the law, mul the town in yet to hear of a jeatiee court. The town has tea church, and it is seldom a minister of the gospel puts in all appearance here. An effort vies made last summer to maintain a Sunday school; but however shuns the spirit might have been, the flesh was weak, and the Sabbath, school climbed the golden 'pole, au. to speak. Then there was a Plan formulated to organize a Y. M. C. A. The scheme reached the point where a committee was appointed to se- lect headquarters, and there the matter came to it sudden halt. In Kendall everybody seems to he a law unto himself. Even the frisky sheepherder aml the merry cowboy, when they come to town to. ; Spend their easily acquired weskit, (Mei) a more or less serious' view of life, and never at- tempt to shoot up tile town. Whatever may have been a man's record elsewhere, in Kendall he leads a life that would be counted highly exemplary even in the effete east. Of course this thill, prosaic monotony of virtuous habits is exceed- ingly tryhig to many high-strung na- tures • but, it seems to be the vogue, and there appears to • be no way of cutting loose from it. Perhaps a livelier and more interesting day is dawning. FROM MORGUE TO FACTORY. Superior Candy Haile on Discarded Mar- ble Slabs from Dead Howie What qualities do marble slabs, used for many years in the morgue of an un- dertaking establishment, lioness that recommend them so to a candy manufac- turer? The appliances used in the morgue and those used in the making of candy are not closely 'dried by most peo- ple, but within the last six Months two 'p e lo tas candy makers have .purcliment, These discarded slabs, aid haie been usher them in their business, says the Spokesman -Review. For a number of yew's these slabs had adorned the morgue of a local undertak- ing establiehment, and many were the bodies that hail been laid (loon them and been washed and prepared for the casket. Of late new contrivances have been in- troduced and marble slabs are no longer considered the proper appliance upon which to prepare bodies for burial. When the undertaking firm secured the new appliances there two large elabs of mar- ble for which it had no use. In the manufacturing of candy pieces of marble of this size are required upon which to pour the hot candy and mold it into its proper shape. Two local colder:- tionery firms heard of the discarded marble and purchased it at a bargain. One firm has been molding candy upon the second hand stab for about six months and the other for four.. In the confectionery business there is said to be much loss on account of the candy becoming aged quickly, and it is not readily disposed of the owner suffers a financial lose. Some people have been unkind enough .o suggest that the em- balming fluid, during the many years that the slabs had been in use, had so penetrated the marble that not only was a certain zest Imparted to him candy, but that it was kept in a state of preserva- tion. Then, too, many people who are eepe- vially fond of bonbons are prohibited from partaking of themen account of the injury resulting to their teeth. With the candy made upon these valued Glebe, it is said, teat not only are the teeth not injered, but the use of this candy keeps the teeth preserved for yeare. It is stated that not only have the qweetmeats lately turned out by thee(' firma .met a heavy local demand, but their good's are becoming common in other markets. It is expected the de- mand will continue as long as the slabs retain their vigor, , Anyhow the reputa- tion of the firms will be established.

The ball on St. Patrick's evening was one of the most successful ever given in Kendall. In spite of the inclement weathar there was a large attendance, and while the storm raged without. there was a gay scene of revelry within. And not only was the spacious floor of the hall fully occnpied by merry ‘lancers, bile the space allotted to spectators was taxed to its capacity. Everything passed otf in the pleasantest .manlier possible, and the fact that dancing did not cease till live o'clock in the morning, tells bow thoroughly the guests enjoyed them- selves, The several committees worked faithfully to make the affair a emcees, and they succeeded beyond their expec- tations. At midnight the merry com- pany sat down to supper in the Kendall hotel. This feature of the occasion was in charge of the Catholic ladies, and they gave a spread that would have satis- fied the most critical of epicures. After the various delicacies had been discussed, and wit and repartee had been given full play for an hour, dancing was resumed with renewed zest. The guests were free to confess that the affair was the pleasantest social experience of their residence in Kendall. The proceeds will go towards building a Catholic church in Kendall.
