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.

The mane - gird of the fair spared no pains to melee the exhibition of the county's erteducts a creditable one, and their that end were well rewarded. The (heresy of fruit, and vegetables, for instance, while not estensivo, was creditable. The ex• faiths ehewed what the SOil and tem- shine of Montana cite prodnce, and the fine apples, potatoes, cabbage and other promIncts of the garden and orchard, were a pounce of wonderment to those Ito haul suppoowl Fergus wits . e :purely stock reefing section. But mt featere of the general display was the mineral exhibit, analio part of the fair attracted greater attention. At all lroure an interested crowd could be seen studying the different ine s. Even prac- tical mining tate acre aerprieed at the great variety of ores shown. • Every camp in the county was represented. Many of the specimens acre attractive to the eye, especially those ores that carried the ',nee stews with the gold and silver. owing to the large month- ly shipments of gold bullion from Ken- dall afetrict, the crowd* were particu- larly interested in its collection of cyan- ide ores. All the leading ntiiies hero were well ropreseeted. Some of those from the \hack townships\ were (temp- yointell, however, as they could not see the gold sticking out in pixie view, and were credulous about the ore beiras of • 80y particular valet.. Snell people, how- ever, were delighted with the aisploy front the sapphire metes: they could see the polished gems, the sewers in the rough, and as they appeared tu the floe - nix. Ti, all the display in the in department was a leeeon in mining. The display made in the hoesehold departtnent drew forth tee greatest amount of entelned applatise. Anil well it might, for it was a remarkably tine exhibition ot \what a WOMNII cret eheie were hundreds of speci:nens of • r needle work, eeery one an exquisite • example' of skill. There were samples of excellent 'painting in oil and water colors . and of free hand dela ing, sketch- ing and photography. The lee& and &awn a ork display was particelarly merritorioute awl attracted 3 crowd every hour the doors were open. Un- fortunately the displuys in this depert- ment were too crowded, and the effect was leesened in consequence.

In the poultry and live tuck depart - emote there were siwcitimens that at- tracted tench attention, thought the ex- hibits were dot hnmerene. , Of course the races were a strong drawing card. Montana people—old and young, men and a omen—love to see a good horse race, and their tastee were fully gratified at the fair this year. There were three end four turf events every afternoon. and at no time was there talk me jockeying or jobbing. Everythieg wag/mu/000d Oil time level, and it i be- lieved the best horse won in each event. On the racing program the relay race for belies 11%1/1 a feature. There two en- tries, Miss Patterson and Miss Marshall. At the end of I he first Ilay ' s race the former had the lead, maintained it on the second day, and when they appeared for the final four -mile run she bad much the beet of the race. Unfortunately, however, on the last day, at the end of the first mile, Miss Marelell fell as she wee changing from one horse to another, and was rendered unconscioue, and the accident put an end to the race. Much sympathy was expressed for the young lady, and in a few moments a handsome sum of money was collected for her from the crowd. It wet, a source of (Beep- pointment to the fair teenagers and to the lovers of horse racing that many of the racers booked to appear failed to show ne. owing to the postponement of the fair at Billings, where the horses were in attendance. As it was, however, the race rogram was a good one and gave neieersal satisfaction. On the last day AM Crowley's horse Etta V. trotted a mile against time. She made the circle - en 2:20; a purse of $150 wes hung up for her to beat the track record of 2:22k. A very stiff breeze was blowieg when she et temetea the feat, which handictipped her effort to marked degree. Bid Fredericks a Good '11n. Kid Fredericks, in his two tights last week at Etwistown, gave adaitional proof that lie is it very clever man in the dee; alma not only that, proved he lute! lots tmf pluck and endurance. Friday night he met Kid Foley of Ante. and won Sy a knock out in the! eighteenth round. It was a stubbornly i -contested fight and was fast ftom start to finish. Both teen were in goal condi- tion. While Frederick wits the fevorite in the betting, the big crowd present showed a warm feeling for Foley. The latter made an uphill fight. Along about the sixth round it looked se though his cleverness would help him win; but Fredericks' hard and frequent blows gradually began to tell; and long before the knockout come it eas plain Foley coeld win only by a clma»ee blow. Dur- ing the fight Foley injured one of his lianas, and from that time on fouglit it e disadvantage. In a fast fight last Tuesday night Kid Fredericks knocked out Doc Flynn in the seventh rotted. It was hammer and tongs from the first tap of the gong to the last ininete a actual fighting. when Fredericks rent in a terrific hook to the jaw and Flynn went to the floor,, and \the subsequent proceedings intert•sted hint no more.\ Killed While Hunting Doer. Saturday morning the 12th Jesse likageadass shot and killed by Mellie Baker,,While hunting deer at the bead of Chttonwood canyon, in the Snowy mountains. Hodges and the two Baker hove were trailing titer, and while Hoeges was in the brush Mellie Baker mistook his figure foe that of a deer and fired. The ballet entered the boay from the back near the spinal volume and came out just above the heart. As soon as possible the wounded man was taken to camp two miles away.
