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.
2 Kendall, Montana. October 20, 1903 TO EDUCATE THEE FAT Yale University Professors to Give Instruction iu Dances. Irimh Jins, Clog Dancers. Reela, and Stage Dancing to Be Includ- ed In the Work of the Gstatmaelass. Irish jigs, clog dances, reels, tilts and stage 'dancing will be taught to students of Yale who elect such in- ruetion as part of the work required ,,f freshmen in the gsnoinsium of the tilliVEraity. Dr. William G. Anderson, .lirector of the gsmultsium, will be in- struct& in the unique curriculum. lie will be assisted by W. Band and I. H. Warner, also instructors in the gym- nasium. The purpose of the dancing exercises is to give physical poise, grace, agil- ity and suppleness. Dr, Anderson said to -nay: \1a Icing %tits an impor- tant part of the training given to the boys of ancient Greece. They were :he most graceful men of ancient an- ions, largely because of that train- ing. In fact, the Greeks so much ap- preciat«1 that fact that they made the dance an in part of the young tarys' education. No less Wife a man than Socrates took instruction in dancing to reduce his stomach, and in his later years commended dancing. \We shall begin our course of in- struction with the Irish jigs. This will enable the students to acquire balance on the feet•and the shifting of weight. After that we shall try the Irish tilt. The tilt is a leaping dance and is used for its practice in sparring. These two dances are all %%Ilia o ill be given this year. We plan to pot on another school year the clog and the soft-shoe dances, the buck and o ing varieties. Of course, these lead logically to the acrobatic dance with the handsprings and the shoulder rolls, hut we have made no specific plans for trying them here yet.\ SUPERSTITIOUS HUNTER. California Taxidermist Shoots n White quail. and Then Sprala• Bin Ankle. Not twice in a decade does it fall to the lot of a man to behold n white California quell. So far as is known not more titan half a dozen hate ester been discovered in this section of the state, and until this neck none has A been captured or killed. As sacred as the albatross to the sailor has Leen the nhite quail to the hunter. It is the popular belief that ill lock o ill be- t:tit the person a ho molt sts one of these birds. George C. Morris, an amateur tax- idermist and collector of birds, did not share iii this superstition a Nil he other sportsmen, and when, in n lit tie eanyon near Tropic°. he discovered a pair of them he fired and brought don n one of the birds. It was a strringe eoincidence arid . one calculated to strengthen the suplition a!lached to the birds. but in rens ing to capture the bird he had shit and o ails not totalls disanled he turned his aniCe and sustained a ft %ere sprain. lie secured his bird and, ming his gun for a staff, he managed to get into the house of a rancher at the month of the eans on and atm by him taken to the station at Tropico. • The plumage of the bird, which he has sines- mounted. is soft and silken. The form and points of the bird, other than color. are ideutical with the ordi- nary quail. - — THE SLOWLY RECEDING MOON. - --- Leese a•as May lease Bees Born of Our north Millio•• of Years Age. Looking back through the mists of time we see the moon ever drawing nearer and nearer to the earth.

WOMAN PRISON CHAPLAIN. -- Blatstcrn Regalorly to the itardlesed Characters Confined to Lar- amie (W)o.) The only woman in the world en- gaged as chaplaip in a prison is Mr! May Preston Slosson, of AVyonring and she performs her duties with t :eal that is worthy of all praise. She is a regularly ordained minister of the Gospel and might be set tied over a prosperous church, but she sect her luty lies among the convicts at Lara- mie and has chosen that as her field of effort, reports the Chicago•Chrow- icle. Mrs. Slosson receiv.ed the first de- gree granted to a woman at Cornell university, where she worked for two years after she had received the mus- ter's degree at Hillsdale college, Mich- igan. After graduating s she accepted the professorship of Greek at Hastings sollege, Nebraska, and was married in ISOI to Prof. Edwin E. Mason, pro- fessor of chemistry at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. In Wyoming the prisoners of the state penitentiary were at one time kept without work on account cf the opposition cf the trades unions to their employment. Men deprived of the f flying grace of work, no matter to shat part of the community they belong. soon become thrown out. of their balance. That happened to the prisoners, who got into n peculiarly morbid and unruly condition. It was in then frame of mind that Mrs. Slosson conceived the idea which the authorities permitted her to put into practice. She arranged for a series of Sunday afternoon talks and xperimental lectures by the profes- sors of the eniversity. She herself gave two lectures before the convicts, and when the minister cc Ito was acting as the chaplain left the town the prisoners petitioned the governor to appoint her chaplain. He acceded to the request, and since July, 1899, she has filled the office not enly to the satisfaction f the authorities. but, what is more important, to the satisfaction of those who are the en- forced members of her eongregation. The prisoners number some 220 and consist for the most part of young men who have gone wept from n of ad% entui c and iinve got illt0 troll- ble either through drink or from \get- ting the brood on the wrong cattle,\ . as eatale steed/mg is ettphentiously re- ferred to by the men themselves. Take Mx ounces of finely chopped suet, half pound • of flour, a tea- spoon of ground ginger, half a pound of molas!es. a little grated Union rind, half a pint of milk in whieb half a teaspoon of soda is dissolved, and one beaten egg: mix all of these ingredients into a light batter. pour Into a greased mold and boil for two inn one-half her :7; tie on the cloth Securely. as the pudding swells muth in cooking ;,serve with any nice sweet sanev.—Bosston Glolfe. FISH COME WHEN CALLED. - — Curious Speelen Brought by a New York NaturallatArThls Coun- try from A•la. Otto Eggeling, a naturalist of New York, has tinally succeeded in import- ing from Asia the first specimens of the curious Ilsh known as the anabes ever brought to this country, says the Times. The special peculiarity of the anabes, , which inhabits the streams of interior India, is that it travels for miles on land in search of water when the streams are dried up. Lovers of aquariums have for years endeavored to secure specimens of this fish, but without success, as thes al - nays died in transit, especially when in the vicinity of the Suez canal, ow- ing to the intense heat. Mr. Eggeling conceited the idea of placing the fish in earthenware vessels, containing a sufficient quantity of weter-soakeei earth, and two months ego he corresponded with friends in India, who secured several fine speci- mens and shipped them. The fish ar- rived last week, and when the earthen- ware pots n'ere opened, the earth thc.rein was found perfectly dry and the fish were in n lifeleA state. Several hours laser being placed in water, hoes. ever, they came to life, and are now as well as ever. These fish are beautifully marked, and when the light strikes them at cer- tain angles their whole bodies assume all tie colors of the rainbow. They sr- erage about :wo and one-half inches in length, and. unlike other fish, breathe through Is lungs instead of the gills, thus enabling them to lice on land. It is said that the anabes can be tamed as any domestic snitual. and eot s. whets railed to, eating toed out of one's hand. These fish have what might be e.slled \crawlers\ on the low- er part t f timr bodies, thus enabling them to travel over land. MESSAGES IN MERCHANDISE. lomtanee• Are on Record.
