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.

KEN ALL CHRONICLE. 1he North Moccasins Nave Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Lett for Honest Toil VOL. 2. KENDALL, MONTANA, AUGUST 4. (903. No. so THE KW'S NEW STRIKE Great Ort Body on the Three Hun- dred Level. The Four Hundred will Also Have the Bonanza—Years of . Fat Dividends are in Sight. • • For some time the report has betel in circulation that IA rich strike bad 'been made in the Kendall mine. The news is confirmed by the management. A rich body of ore is being developed on the three hundred -foot level. 4t is an important find, as its existence confirms the theory of a continuous ore body at ileptle While work is going on on the three hundred., prospecting of a system- atic and permanent nature is in progress on the four hundred, and it is now prac- tically a certainty that the ore body found there e ill he as large and im- portant as it bag elyeetty_ proven to be on the levels above. The ore body on the three hundred - foot level is being opened up through what is now called the main shaft. The ore has been crosscut and is found tete about forty-five feet wide, and the work of drifting upon it east and west has been in progress some little time. The character of the ore on this level is the same as that found above, and it carries values equally as good, if not better. Development on these lower:lovels of the Kendall is proving the mine a wonder, and every day's work is adding to the stupendous ore bodies already in sight._ Ore extraction is going on as usual these days. The mill ;s supplied with about three hentired tons daily. This ore comes from the open cuts and lower workings. Blocking out ore for future use keeps pace with the extraction, so the mine is kept well supplied with a re- serve. Thirty thousand dollars a month is now the regular dividend to stockhold- ers, distributed from Finch and Camp- bell's office in Spokane, and these re- turns are likely to continue for many years. So far about one hundred thou - pond tone of on have been milled. There is ten times that amount now in sight. es a ton of the Kendall ore in place oc- cupies about fifteen cubic feet, the \hole in the property\ already made can be mentally calculated. The big open cut on the Leaking claim is increasing in size daily. It is some two hundred feet in diameter, and it resembles the mouthi of a recently formed crater. Some time ago a new open cut was started on the Klondike claim to the west. This latter excavation is rapidly assuming propor- tions. Here some remarkably good ore is found. It referring to it Superinten- dent Lang eaye? \This cut is affording some of the finest leaching ore that God ever put into the ground.\ In going over this part_of the property one day it was noticed that a gopher had thrown up some very good-looking porphyry. A shaft was sunk on the spot and it went right down on the ore. Later it was de- cided to connect with the lower work- ings and send the ore to the mill. There is no waste rock—it all carries values— even the Mack dirt near the surface holding gold. In the course of time it is likely that all the surface ground, where now stand the electric hoist building, etc., will be broken 00%11 and sent to the mill. The Kendall company owns twelve claims; but so far the main ore body has only been develoyed on two Claims, the Leaking and Klondike. The other ground is what may be termed protect- ing claims. Some new ground has just been purchased by the company. This acquisition takes in the Hopeful and Hopeless claims. As development work progresees it becomes more and apparent the gigantic ore body continues into the new territory acquired. The Hopeful (melees werilcontraledby Charles Allen, the foreman of the Kendall mine, and Harry Kendall, who formerly owned the ground that is proving such a ho - The ore body in the Kendall mine at its extreme width is two hundred feet between walls, and is . what is called a quartzite porphyry. The tootwall is a carboniferous blue li:ne, and the hang- ing wall is a shale bleeding off to a sand- stone. It is claimed by some of the ex- perts that the formation of the Kendall and of the Barnes-King properties are of a different geological period, while others maintain it is all of the sadne age. Be that as it may, there is but little differ- ence in the formation and character of the ore found in the two mines. BONDS FOR A SCHOOL. Pour Thouund Dollars Voted for that Purpone. Kendall is to at last have a suitable school house—one that will be a credit to the camp. On Saturday an election was held to vote bonds for the purpose, and the measure carried without a die- eenting vote. The bond issue calls for $4000, and the Money will be available as soon as the bonds are sold. As land fer a site has been donated by the towne site company, the money voted can all go into the building and its equipment. It is high time the town had adequate school facilities.

A large crowd, made up of representa- tives from every walk of life, witnessed a hotly contested pugilistic match in the Tivoli theater at Lewistown last Fri- day night between \Kid\ Fredericks (white) and \Kid\ McFarland (colored). Each fighter weighed in within a few ounces of 135 pounds, although Freder- icks had a decided advantage over his opponent in height and reach. For the first five rounds Fredericka fought all around the colored fellow, when the lat- ter rallied and made things mighty in- teresting for his opponent. At the end of the ninth round it wan anybody's fight; but after that it was very much one-sided and in favor of Fredericks. In the 12th amid 13th rounds the colored boy was nearly \all in,\ and he received a terrible beating. He was knocked down several times and \took time count\ at every opportunity in the last two rounas. Fredericks, however, was un- able to administer a knockout blow, and the sheriff stepped in at tne end of the 13th and put an end to the fight, thus saying the spectators the sight of a bloody and uninteresting close—and Mc- Farland any further punishment. The decision was in favor of Fredericks. How t• Save Money ea Lumber Bill. The Montana Lumber company of Lewistown is better prepared than ever to fill orders for lumber. The stock in she 'mitts includes everything Heeded o /fillet a house from cellar to roof, from eke front gate to the fence in the rear of the barn. If you contemplate driving a nail into any kind of a board or stick of timbei see Mr. Lane, the company's manager, and let lion figure on your needs. A Good Prospect an Attractive Invest - talent. A prospect sufficiently developed, wherein there is known to be pay ore, is a choice investment to those who are looking for mine investments and who have small funds. Otten the purchaser %till* his limited capital opens up a fine property. Had lie placed his small means iu R producing dividend mine he would have had but little to show, as the stock in dividend paying mines is valued high. Every mining state con- tains hundreds of good prospects, the owners as a rule being prospectors or miners with limited funds and most al- ways ready to dispose of interest at a rea- sonable price. Especially is this the case in Fergus county. These prospects are the beginning of the great mines, tor, like everything else, mines have a beginning and the prospector is the fa- ther of all mines. Calamity Jane No More. Calamity Jane, knovvn all over the west, died last week near Deadwood. She requested that her body be buried beside Wild Bill Hickock. The dead woman led a wild life, with more of the commonplace than the romantic. Be- fore the booze habit had wiped out every trace of womanly grace and pride she won a name for kind heartedness and petwonal bravery. Now the writers of western fiction will have a last . chance to picture some of Calaniity's thrilling adventures. Let the grave close over her remains in peace begot by charity, for she was once someone's loving child. Mrs. F. II. Beckwith, of Des Moines, La,, is visiting her sister, Mrs. Ernest Ebbage. Some good reports are coming in from the prospect holes in the South Mocca- sins. Fortunately for the future of that section a few miners have faith in it.
