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 RONICLE. VOL. 2. 'The North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their KENDALL, MONT ousands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil , JUNE 23, 1903. No. 14 EL IN A PROSPECT HOLE Horse Belonging to Merickle & Mc- Cormack Has Narrow Escape A Barnes -King Miner Was Threat- ened by a Ruffian Last Sunday Night Merickle & McCormack are feeling _ pretty good over the safe recovery of one * of their driving horses last Sunday 'froth - what might have been a slow and tor- tuous death. The above gentlemen allow their horses to graze about the bills in the neighborhood of Kendall when the animals are not doing service. Both horses and cattle thus reaming about here run a big risk of (alb eg into one of the many prospect holes that are to be found about these mount in Last Sunday afternoon as Jlarry Nee - man was going over the hill about 150 yards east of H. I. Shaw's house, his at- tention wat drawn by a strange noise coming from the ground nearby. Ile walked over to investigate, and to his surprise found a horse lying dowt — i — fn a prospect hole and in a perfectly helpless condition. The animal was lying on one Lore leg and was in a cramped position. \iffr.liewmitn recognized the animal as Merickle & McCormack's sorrel pinto. He soon found Archie McCormack and told him of what he had seen. The eery - ices of a half dozen were quickly secured to rescue the brute from it, uncomfort- able position. Block and tackle was bor- rowed from the Barnes -King mine and a tripod erected over the prospect hole to which was fastened ropes for lifting the animal. The men dug around the horse until he could raise up far enough to pass ropes under him and fasten them to the block hook. Then two or three strenu- ous pulls on the part of the men at hand hoisted the poor creature to the top and he rolled over and got onto his feet, feel- ing pretty stiff and sore, but not serious- ly hurt. Miner Refused to Giro Up Last Sunday night about 11 o'clock, as Mr. Sperry, a Barnes -King miner, was on his way to work he was pestered by a solicitor for alms who only wanted two bite, he said. Mr. Sperry being a hard working and careful man, did not believe he would be doing himself and family justice by giving up his well I earned money to what was edidently ' common hobo who made a practice. of begging and who never worked if he could find anything else to do. Spam , refused the tramp assistance several times, but the latter grew bolder and threatened Sperry with bodily injury if he did not give up. About that time Sperry Was real angry and swinging his dinner bucket with a good deal of force landed on the hobo's face just between his eyes. The knight of the road fell to the ground, stunned. The bruised man had a companion near at hand who went to his assistance, and pulled Ifini into the tall grass lit• the wayside. The two Thugs were seen lying asleep Monday at noon in the shade of the ice house in the rear of Reed & Millard's saloon. The people of Kendall should be pro- tected from these ruffians who are be- coming too numerous altogether. We are badly in need of a deputy sheriff in, this camp. Worktng Under Difficulties The Kendall and Itarnes-King mil have been greatly handicapped in the work for the last few days. At the Ks dall mine they have been trouhled wi wet ore which is exi e alingly hard handle at the crusher aria requires mt more time than does the dry dirt.

Frank Wright of Lewistown and Mr. Bonean, a Denver mining man, were in camp Thursday and Friday on business in connection with the Santiago mining claim. Mr. Wright states that the prop- erty is very promising, and next week about six men will be started to work develpping it. The men will be in charge of Bert Losinger, the well known inqiden mining man. Mr. Wright is well pleased with the outlook for this district, and he predicts a great growth here during the next few years. Mrs. Luton, of Lewistown, is staying at the home of her daughter, Mrs, Paul Smith, nursing her through a siege of of sickness. Mrs. Smith is muzli im- proved in health and will probably he up and around again in a few days.

Frank Saversey, the v.riety hall man- ager, moved his place of bilinnegEl Sunday from the Turner block on McKinh.y ave- nue, to the Kendall hotel, situated in the rear of Clingan & Hamilton's saloon. The good people of this camp ate mighty glad to have such a nuisance removed from the main thoroughfare. There are few camps in the country where they live as well as do the Kendall people.

Harry Hill, book-keeper at the Ilames- King mine, and wife, have taken up their residence in the lann Reed home situated south of the Cook block. Mr. Reed has removed his family to his ranch near Kendall. Abel & Company, Kendall's up-to-date dealers in meat, fish, etc., are making arrangements to start a delivery service. This new feature will be appreciated by the local public, and it will no doubt add considerable trade to the already large bushiest; of these progressive merchants. Mrs. P. Leary and Master Eddie left Kendall last Friday for Butte, where they will remain indefinitely. Mr. Leary went with them as fares Harlewton. . Red Lodge Picktt : According to an exchange, the man who went out to milk and sat dowu on a boulder in the middle of the pasture and waited for the cow to back up, was a brother to tne man who kept a store and wouldn't ad- vertiae, because he reasoned that the purchasing public %mild back up to his place of business e hen it %sinned some- thing.
