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 CHRONICLE 1 he North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Foil VOL. 2. KENDALL, MONTANA, MAY 5, too3. No. 7 FIGHT WITH MOUNTAIN LION Great Excitement in Kendall Gulch a Few Evenings Ago Winchesters Were Kept Busy— Some Very Badly Scared People The oldest inhabitants of Kendall tell tales of the capers of mountain lions in these mountain(' in the early days, but none of them would believe that there 1 weie any of these mammoth felines left were it not for the statement of one of our citizens who knows a mountain lion when he sees one, and whose veracity we cannot call in question. A few evenings ago one of the resi- dents of Kendall gulch, hearing hie dog, which is rather a savage brute, making a great fuse, sent his boys out to tee what was worrying him. The dog Would run off across the bottom toward Hie bill in the direction of W. A. Shanks' rich, and then come tearing back grotslieg and barking RS though there was a mon- ster in the woods. The boys, not sue- pecting any danger, folios% ed the dog into the edge of the timber, whets)) large ---verivrartrelleirerteseirsesseisi-sesir-reSeterehr in the dusk of the evening, started off through the brush closely followed by the infuriated dog. The boys sturted back for the house as fast as their legs could carry them, but when at a safe distance, stopped long enough to cast look backward, when they beheld t e object of their alarm clearly tacit) el against the evening sky, closely crouch- ing on the leaning trunk of a dead pine. Rushing into the house, they informed their father, who hastened to a spot where a view of the animal could t Not knowing exactly what it was, and not having any gun to kill the beast with, be sent the boys to a neighbors tor a rifle, while he remained to encourage the dog, and so kept the animal up the stump until the return of the artillery. In a few minutenquite a number of the neighbors had gathered, and together they approached as near as they dared to the tree containing the animal, wonder- ing all the time what sort of a beast it could be. After etationing themselves in convenient positions, they opened fire, and for a few minutes- it sounded as though there was a pitched battle going on. This brought out the remaining of the residents of the gulch who, hear- ing the noise and not knowing is hether there ass trouble or fun on hand, grab- ed what weapons were handy and started for the scene, but before they could arrive some One .bad chanced to hit the animal which knocked it off its perch, and it fell to the ground with a screech that sent the cold chills running up their backs, and as their places of nil - vantage were now turned to places of disadvantage the men, like the boys be- fore them, hastenek from the scene, leaving only the dog master of the 'situ- ation and on the animill's trail, where it had slunk away into the brut- b. At this juncture tm experienced holster relived, and after listening to a lescrip Lion of the berust knew it to be a moun- tain lion ; but as it wive growing too (lark to follow it through the brush, the crowd started for home; before they had gone far they were startled by hearing the brush cracking close to one side of the road, and were able to see the form crawliiig away from Chem, only a few yards distant. They immediately open- ed tire and were oatisfled that they had ended its existence, but none cared to venture close enough to make certain of it. preferring to leave it where it lay un- til morning. Finally, oust old bunter more courageous than the rest, decided to bring -the trophy, into crimp, which be did, dragging the monster by the hind leg, with its tawny hide literally perfor- ated with bullet boles. Quite a crowd wits viewing the aeimal when a ten-3 ear- old boy exclaimed: \You bave killeti my little . sister's poor old yellow tomtny cat.\ Messrs. A. P. Hull and Atithon Gilsky returned to Kendall Friday from a buei- nese trip to the bail lande near the Little Rockies. M. Flaherty has built a very neat stone fettle around his residence. Mr. Fhtherty takes much pride in his home surround- ing?, anti in making these improvements he sets a good standard for others to emulate. Mrs. Wai. Abbott, eh() is sojourning at Hunter's Hot Springs for the benefit of her beadle in a letter to her brother, Charles Allen, of the Kendall mine, gives the gratifying news that she is rapidly getting strong and expects soon to . entireTy_!!•cover her former health. Monder (yesterday) aftercoon the 7 stock of liquors and cigars belonging to John 'I ierney who conducted a saloon for several weeks iii the Turner block, was (hold at public auction to satisfy the claims of Tierney's creditors.

And what imtuenee holes those open cuts have grown to be-- there are three of them on the Kendall proecrlY and one on the Barnes -King -0106a on the Kendall property are over 200 feet in diameter at the top, and 100 tett deep; Lo f oivi WK clrtlettroughott the United States,io o about$7,000,000 ,cap- ital, it is authoritatively stated that so far as the Kendall mine is concerned the deal has fallen through, but not so with the Barnes -King, the Wright and adja- cent properties. The deal for the consoli- dation and purchase of these properties , is on until the first of July. Several noted experts are expected to arrive here 'within a couple of.weeke,.and very likely one or more of the eastern cnpital- lets interested in the purchase of these local properties will also arrive about' that time, and the work of testing and sampling will continue once more. Other claims in this district have been bonded for large amounts, notably Set' - end claims located north of and adjacent to the Abbey group. The Case -Wilson Cyanide Gold Mining Company, of Tren- ton, N. J., secured a $40,000 bond on these claims last fall, and the develop- ment work done thus far gives meat gratifying results. It is also reported from a source that a deal is on to bond claims owned by IL 0. Wareham, which join the Barnes -King mine on the they are funtod shaped, being blasted north. Nothing definite will be given out from the top of the mountain.
