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.

PAREENT The Grim Messenger Came Without Warning The death of Helen Gray Parrent last aturultty evening et 7 o'clock came as a ehock to her many friends in Kendell and throughout Fergus cominty. Al- though the deceased bad been ill several days before the mid end came, it was her own than belief, as well as that of her husband and her nurse, that all danger was over and that she would be around and well in a day or so'. In fact Mrs. Parrent haul planned only a few hours before to visit with hien& in Lewistown next Tueeday (today,) and just a few minutes previona to the departure of tier spirit, 81 , e and her linehand werediscnee- ing their plans for the coming year. The end Mlle without warning, heart failure being the cause of death. Mrs. Parrent was a native of Iowa, she having @pent the first fourteen .years of her life in Dubuque, the town of her birth. In May, 1888, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Gray, settled in Lew- istown, and they were among the fore- most citizens of Fergus county for many years .Mr. Gray was post master in Lew- istow it for two terms. Their daughter Helen took a regular course in the Lew- istown public schools under the tutor- ship of Mr. Parrent from 1888 to 1892, and completed her edinattion in the Chicago; TIL, high school. She was married November 8th, 1894, oe her 20th birthday. Mrs. Parrent was one of the leading members of the Episcopal church in beatimown and she took a. prominent part in Die work of raising (elide for the line new stone church edifice there. She lived a model life, was an affection- ate, fond another rind a loving wife. Her husband, .1. M. Parrent, and her two children—Elizabeth, aged 8 years, and .1. M.

Ii Will BE 11 GO MR Fergus County Held a And Decided to Outdo All Former Efforts Next September 16th, 17th and 18th The Fergus County Fair Association has decided to hold a fair in Len , iStOw n thie year and it is going to be the biggest anti the best otie the emaciation has ever given It will make previous occasions Of like (liar:icier look like thirty cents. A Melalillg of the Association members was held in the office of Secretary 0. W. Belden 011 the afternoon of the 10th inst., regarding which the Lewistown Demo- crat says : \There were present at the meeting F. E. Wright, David Miter, James Wta- ver, W. I). Symmes, George W. Cook and 0. W. Belden. F. E. Wright was re-elected president arid 0. W. Belden secretary of the association. All of the members present were unanimously in favor of holding a fair and the question of a (late was the first thing brought up for discussion. It was finally decided that September latli, 1701 ant118th were ii — best suited and these Asps wesa agreed upon. The eonnty commissioners envy, in the exercise of their discretion, make an Appropriation not exceeding the sum of $1,000 for such purpose, arid we under - tumid that all do. members of the board are inclined to favor the proposition. With this Much SS a starter there is no reason on earth why we should not have the best fair ever held in eastern Mon- tana. The purses, it is said, will not be so numerous hut will be much more sub- stantial, making competition greater, adding life and interest to the project. The old grand stand will be supplanted with a new one, having about double the seating l • apricity and many other im- provements will be made for the accom- modation of the public. The secretary was iiistructed to ascer- tain if it was possible to secure the at- tendance of a first-class aeronaut and other acrobatic specialties, such as tight wire performers, etc. There will be Fair Association refining races, hurdle races, cowboy M races, ball games and all manner of eeting amusements. In addition to the foregoing, special 'attention will be given to the department of exhibits. The association desires to offer inducements sufficient to warrant sharp competition in every Fergus( county product, whether it be from the fields, ranges or mines, and it is the aim of the association to have thefte exhibits surpass all former efforts in the history of the county. We are going to have a good time, a grand time, a splendid fair and we want - everybody in Fergus county to co-operate with the association and make it a splen- did success. We doubt if you have ever seen the rail fence, the ginger snap, the cracker box, the saileage roll, the bed spring, the night fall, or our bargains in Lots, Houses anti Ranches.
