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.

Tv% a KENDALL CHRONICLE. 'the North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thousands and Have Millions Left for Honest loil VOL. 2. KENDALL, MONTANA, AUGUST 25, '903. No. o3 INVIDING Tilt J111)1111 BASIN 0 - 1 — Mit Progress of the Iron Horse Toward Lewisttowts. Passenger Trains May Be Runn Through by October 15—The Passing Out ofUbet. _ _ • !';*1 . - . .••••1 At the riffice of the %Maria ;ailroad it is stated the exteneionta;Lewistowtil. within twelve miles of that town. The roadbed is completed to a point about twenty miles beyond Garneill. Track hiving is being pusIttel from Garneill at as at the rate of a mile a day. The leveling crews are putting the road in shape be- tween Harlow ton and Gamed!, and all paasensere are brought by train to the latter point, where the stage is taken for points north. Some two hundred tame are now working on the roe' d, and many more would be put on if Men could be ecured. There is a great deal of heavy work yet to be done -between Lewietown and the points where the men are at cork, and the officials do not hold out any hopes of the road reaching the county seat before the middle of October. An item of interest in coneection wjt4i the coming ot thmrailroad to Lewistown is the probable passing of the town of Mat, says the Helena Record. Utiet is the geographical center of Montana, and for its size is probably the best known eountryside pogtoffice in the state. The attention of the traveler is first ettract- ed by tho peculiarity of its name, which, according to authentic accounts, was ac- quired in the following manner: The residents wanted a postoffice at tile settlement, and the late A. B. Bar- rows, accompanied by Major Martin Maginnis, called on Territorial Governor Benj. F. Potts, who was commissioned in 1870, for the purpose of asking his as- sistance with the department st Wash- ington. \Want a poritoffice do you?\ asked the govornor. • \You bet 1\ replied Barrows. \ Tbet' it shall be,\ said the gover- nor, and Ubet it became. It soon became the chief stopping place for the stage into Lewistown and and other points in the Judith basin, and has remained one ever since. The hotel, run by Mrs. Barrows, is noted among all travelers in and out of the basin as one of the beet in the state. Not only her excellent table, hut her per- sonal interest in and solicitude for the comforts of the pilgrim, cold and tired, or hot and dusty from a long stage ride, made for her a friend of every traveler who partook of her hospitality. So the glory 'cif the old town will de- part wi h the discontinuance of the daily stage. The Argus says: \Taking into consid- eration the progress which has been made n the road up to date it seems improbable that there will be a pitmen- ger train into Lewistown before Novem- ber let. The contractors may be able to secure more bands after the harvest is over and a larger track -laying and level- ing crew may be put on, but with the best of luck it is hard to figure out a ful- ly equipped passenger train running in- to LAristown before the :Diddle of Oc- tober. \One thing that can be said is this: when completed it will be a ninth better road than most people believe. The road bed for the most part will be as good as any railroad could wish. With a hard cement gravel bed end moderate grades the trains in and out of the Judith BasIn rzeight to be able to make good time.\ The new schedule for the carrying of passengers between Lewistown and Har- lowton went into effect lag seek, and the stage ride is now cut &Mu to the distance from Lewistown to ,Garneill. The stage leaves the county seat at 7 a. in. It reaches Garneill at Hoo*,. wliete it connects with the train for Hartowton. Tina train connects with the regular for Lombard. Going north the train leaves Hallow ton upon the arrival of the regu- lar train and makes Garneill by six p.m. where an hour is given for supper, alien the stage starts for Lewistown, reachies its destination at midnight. MANY DISCARDED SOLES. How They Men* bo Rescued fro/In- nocuous Deseuetode. Sonte time ago the canip's only shoe- maker abandoned his last, locked the do r of him prosaic little shop, put the key in hie - pocket still took up a more strenuous occupation at the anvil. Sinee that important move was made there 111413 been no cobblering studio here, and as a consequence the poles of tie Kendallites have suffered from the need of repair. All over the camp there are bores aniIshoes mtr..:h the worse for bard usage, and they are sadly, disfigured for want of mending. But there is no one here to do the aro k, Pt) they must bide their time till another Knight of St. Crispio apoears up.h. the ek:elle, puts out his sign and takes up the work his brother knight so unceremoniously abandoned. If a boot and shoe hospital were to be opened in Kendall it could bring re- ward to its owner, were he a mechanic of some skill and energy. The man who formeily performed this class of work here has been repeatedly begged to repair shme of the more abandoned soles, but he persistently refuses to desert the forge even for an hour or a day. The tintinnabulation of the merry anvil, the showers°, seintilating stars that at times fill his shop, the music in the bellow's roar, all appeal so strongly to his artistic sense that he is loath to desert his post to again invade the somber atmosphere that surrounds the cobbler's bench.

HORSE KILLED. It faits Twenty Feet frets • Trestle at the Barnei-King. Roy Dutcher lost a valuable horse Sunday morning by the animal falling io the ground from the trestle at the Barnes -King mill. On the 20th of this mouth Mr. Dutcher commenced on his contract with the company to haul ore from the mine to the mill. The ore is trygpriporteci in ears, drawn by a hole, over a track, part of the dietasice to the mill it being on a trestle. The home proved very intelligent and readily be - conic accustomed to the task. At the ore bin a turn is made and the space on the trestle, which at this point is some twenty feet from the ground, is very limited. Sunday morning Mr. Ditcher had the horse at the mill ready to begin' work for the (lay. In his movements Site horse accidentally bemped against the ore car, and it stepped a little too far to one side; as fl resulc its hind feet went down over the side of thetreatle. Mr. Dutcher made a heroic effort to prevent the horse going over, but the halter rope broke aud the unfortunate anitnal fell to the grimed. It sustained such injuries that death in a short time seemed cer- tale, and to end its suffering it was shot. _ Saw Kendall as It Is. John Vrooman, editor and proprietor of the Angus, accompanied by his wife and children and Rev. IL E. Robbins of Anaconda, visited Kendall one day last week. It was Mr. Vrooman'e first visit to the North Moccasins in two years. The party \took in\ the mining situa- tion, and saw R good deal that proved Of interest. lii a mining region it does not take long for the topography of a section to undergo a complete transformation in appearance. And this has been the care in this locality. Two years ago there was no town here, and 'flitting was but ait it:far.t industry. New the scene is SU animated one. But the activity display- ed at this time is but II forerunner of what will be experienced two years hence. Stanford Fowler retnrned last week from his vacation. He weet from lime to Great Falls on his wheel. From there he traveled by rail to Butte awl other places, extracting keen enjoyment from his journeyings and sojournings. He is again at work in the Barnea-King mill FOR SALE. First-class saddle or driving horse ; also, a heavy stock saddle. • S. LARRIIVI, Kendall. To Haat a Hurt Use Banner Salve, the great healer.
