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 CHR I NICLE. 1.4 .• 'The North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thausands and Have Millions Left for Honest Toil VOL. 2. .1. KENDALL, MONTANA, JULY 7, 1 9 0 3. No. 16 A MOST gUCCIlfill JDAY I i • Everybody Had a Good Time hs Lewistown on the Fourth Hlw the Day Was C:lebratcd ,in Kendall—A Few People Made Pig Noise Despite the rain, which on Wednes- day, .Thursday and Friday threaten- ed to spell the big celebration pre- pared for Lewistown, the glorious Fourth was fittingly observed in the county seat. ihe day itself was about as good as could be desired overhead. A shower, which fell about dark, spoil- ed the vaudeville performance and the out -door dance on the huge pavil- ion erected for that especial purpose, but the fire works .were set off as scheduled and were the most gorgeous ever seen in this part of the state. Despite the bad roads a large crowd came in from the outside, Kendall and Gilt Edge being especially well represented. In the morning Judge Henry C. Smith, of Helena, delivered an elo- quent address to a large....c.roaui,,, who had gathered In anticipation of hear- ing a treat in the oratorical line, the Judge being one o. the best known speakers in the state. He was intro- duced by Judge E. K. Cheadle, of this county, and, as usual, the Feregis county mat) rose to the occasion in a most pleasing manner. After dinner the sports arm.nzed for the day begun with the roping con- test. There were several compe- titors and some nice roping done, Ed. Stiverthorne winning out, his time be- ing four minutes. Fifty dollars was toe premium for the winner of this event. Frank Biglen won the bucking con- test, but was hard pressed by sever- al more of the boys from the range. The horses in the event did their part . as well as did their riders, putting forth their best efforts to unseat their men, but in no case did they suc- ceed Probably the most interesting event of the 'day was the base ball game for a purse of $60, between a team representing Kendall and made up of Kendall and one or two Gilt Edge boys and I.ewistown. The I.ewistown boys, resplendent in neat and new red uniforms, first went to the bat and virtually won the game In the first inning. After Gibbons had struck out the red -suited fellows fell on Bar- bee for eight clean hits, one of which was for two bases, and before the re- quired- three men were out eight runs had been chased across the plate. Hamilton went In the box for the re- mainder of the game, but the lead was too much for him to overcome. The visiting boys did some nice work in the field, Mader playing his mural steady game and Baker putting up R fine exhibition behind the bat. But they were unable to do much with Boggs, who was in the twirler's box for the home team. They were credited with nine hits, but most of them were of the scratchy order. Stout, who started in to catch for Lewistown, had his right hand broken in the seCiond inning and re- tired in favor of Myers, who caught out the game in first-class shape. The final score was 20 to 5 in favor of Lew- istow,n. , Following immediately after the base ball game was the drilling con- test for thee$100 prise, three teams from Kendall? competing. DIgnon and Mallon were the winers With a 35% - inch hole: Koko and Foote were sec- ond. About ,9, o'clock from , the hill, fae- ing the grand stand, two hundred dol- lars worth of tire works were turned loose. The grand stand wailed and the surrounding hills were covered with the crowd, gatheredeto witness the grand pyrotechnic di4.ay: .• Al- though the shower in the early even- ing made impossible dancipik on the pavilion, W. H. Culver gave a dancel in his hall, which was overcrowded with the lovers of the terpsichorean pastime. Thus concluded be best cel- ebration, the weather to the contrary, notwithstanding, ever held in Lewis- town. The Kendall boys, who went down to defeat at the hands of the Lewis- town aggregation of ball players, •e- tna.inei over until Sunday In the hope of getting revenge for the defea. o$ the Fourth Having used up both their pitchers in the first game, tbeg prevailed upon \Col) , \ Carmichael, ot Lewintcwn, to twirl for them on Sue. day. The way \Car\ went after tsta fellow townspiayers soon put thee up in the air. He was as steady as a clock and had speed to burn. The support given him was first-class. Widenbecker pitched for Lewistown and be did almost, if not quite, as well as Carmichael. The game was close throughout, the visitors getting the lead in the second inning and hold- ing it by one or two runs to the end. The locals made a desperate effort to bat out a victory in the ninth, but Carmichael steadied down and shut out the red stockings with one more run, making the final score 7 to 5. All agreed in saying that it was the prettiest game of ball ever played In Lewistown.
