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.

LUMBER 101E11 IN KENDRI, Thieves pave Been Making a Roid on Building Material George Pfunder Was Arrested Sat- urday Charged with Stealing a Window Numerous e omplainte have.heen Made during the -last year by-,reeidente of Ken- dall about loose lumber and building material of all kinds being stolen from th •ir premises. It has freqbeirtly'lisp- pened that when a man would have his home or other buildings in course of con- struction, and have all the material nscessary for its completion on the ground, diet before the structure Was finished considerable lumber would he missing, aq,another order %mild have to be purchased to complete the work. This kind of stealing has been prac- ticed by several people in Kendall, end in some cases on an extensive scale, but no information has heretofoie been filed against any of the offenders for the rea- son that the evidence against tl ern has Sot been of a direct character.

Before the Shatilee hotel was completed it was found that something like 7,000 feet of lumber had been confiscated by parties who evidently thought that if no one saw them they Were jilffillied in fak- ing what lumber they needed from (my pile that happened to be trendy. Mr. Cook frequently complained of losing lumber in the night by unknown thieves; and, in fact, it became a common com- plaint of builders that lumber could not he safely left out of doors over night A few evenings ago the wife of carpen- ter E. E. Wright noticed some one g big into the vacant livery stable of Tullock AL 'lily's and heard him dragging some- thing through die %vesicle's' he departed.

A settlement Was made for the standing and Wright let the matter Arm) so far as he was concerned. \ When Frank Ttillock, of Lewistown, was informed of the stealing,Aaewever, he determined to ferret out the oilty party and, if possible, give thern their jeat punishment. • - r — tivorste Plunder, who was living at Flaherty's and doing odd jobs about the 11011Se, was accused of the stealing, and • 'KENDALL, MONT the evidence •Sgainst him was strong enough to coninceTellock that he was justified in swearing out a warrant for Pfunder'e arrest. Under -Sheriff Ed. Martin, armed with summons, drove over to Kendall Sat- urday afterneon and placed Plunder wider arrest, returning to Lewistown with his prisoner the same evening. - (4eorge Plunder le well known in most of dbfriduitureamPAnf the west.

After the total loose\ ;ea nes' sped, they find it necessary to . bolh,'ow the doctor's watch. A tew days a Colonel Bennett borrowed the time and shortly afterwards Major Tom t telephoned to the doctor for the of it, but when told that Bennett Lu it lie decided to wait a couple of dii I before taking his horse to the track ter the record.

No mote convincing evidence that the above state - merit is correct is needed than that which is forniatied alien bad roads lb the railroad Fioirrta prevail, send a food fiiuiuiuu threatens for want of tranapor- ta lion facilities. It is iliteresting to note that at such 'a tone the first freight teams to arrive are invariably laden svith iiq nid refreeht- merits to quench the parched throats of those who must have their drink first and food afterwards. Souse will say that the freighter is paid a trisher rate for hauling refresh- ments that cheer, but the facts of the case do not bear out the assertion. Ode business multi in Kendall said a few days ago: \I pay the highest rate in order to get my goods in first, but no, the beer meet come firet, awl so I sit and seSit and lose sales until the thirst of ihe majority is satisfied.\ LEWISTOWN'S FAST HORSES _ A Coating Remark Made by One Owner About Iii. Nefghber's Arshoval Harry Hughes, the well-known pros- pe'etor in the North Moccasin triountaina, tells a story about the fast horses :of Lewistowe. Harry says he has heard more talk about speedy onimals in the suetropoii• of Fergus county thaw esSld be piped off froma gang of horsemen st the New York track ; and to hear the tales of records broken by the local talent, one soon begins to believe Oat he is in the horse center of the world. When Audi Men as Major Bennett, Colonel Pratt, Dr. Hedges, and other owners of fast stock get together, there is nothing to it ; each of them claims to have the fereest trotter that ever came over the pike, and trial speeds are fre- quently made for better records. It appears that Dr. Hedges is the only sity compels to do so. Open -Cot Mining Delayed The storm has put an end to open cut mining here for a short time, and all the miners who were thus employed are ow working underground in dry ore. A few days of warm, dry weather will make it pomade to resume work in the re en again. and Losses Wilt About Balance In this section of the country the bene- fits to be derived from the storm will overbal.ince any losses to the sheep and cattle men, which were small compared with losses reporte•I from other section,. of the mate.\' In the Great Falls district from the storm are figured up, and the good it done to the country is estimated, the result will most likely be about a stand off. Telephone Line Down The teleplitine line between tie Ken- dall mill and the power plant on Warm Spring creek was down for a couple of deys during the storm and communica- tion betvieen these two points was tem- porarily cut off. The mill was Shut down as a result, it not being known at - the powet house a bether or not it Was side to turn the electric current until ie- structed from the mill to do so. The solution men didn't appreciate having to go their rounds at night guided by the light of a lantern ; they have been accustomed to the mill being brilliantly illorninatsd with are lights. - -- Jeremiah, the Great Falls Tribune solicitor, was in Kendall last week in the interests of Isis paper. Jeremiah reports exceedingly good luck for himself during his stay in this great gold camp.
