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 owner of this dog called on him and said: \ my valuable bull, is running area& all the time. So far he has been traced and found in each of his flights, but it has been smatter of diMenity, and Tarn afraid that some day he will be irretrievably lost be- cause of the lack of some positive and striking mark of identification.\ \You want,\ said the dealer. \a good identifying mark?
