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.

However poor parents may be and whatever may be their social stand- ing, there is much they may do for their offspring. \Education is not always possible to give to children - in . a formative period of life,\ says a well known writer. \Decent habits and manners can always he given them if the par- ent is ambitious in this direction.\ \A. father and mother wko can read listen and observe, are ins position to learn the rudiments of good manners, and te bestow those rudiments—a precious legacy—on their children. The great misfortune is that a great majority of poor people place no value on good manners, 'bnt regard higher education with great longing, as a prosseasion for their children.\ The, most valuable training a boy or , girl may receive is that which . comes from home influences that produce good habits, proper manners and wholesome ambitions. Then if the advantages of a higher collegiate edu- cation may be added to these, very well. But the most effective training is that 'Which is received in the uni- versity where the fireside is a campus tnd the father and mother the in- structors.

Mining News And Notes. Owing to the storm Wednesday work at the Barnes-King Mine was shut off, as it was impossible to do any work in the open cuts. A. S. Wright has returned to Lew- istosen from the east where he has been for some timeQ. It is reported that work on the Gold Links will soon be resumed, but as yet we have not heard no definite statement from A. S as to just when operations would be started. It has been rumored that the Barnes -Mug is making efforts to 'se- cure the Santiago property. The Barnes -King could reach the ore body of the Santiago easily from the south end of their works as it connects dir- ectly with it. Work on the Abbe, fs being con- tinued without delay' and' the devel- opments is proving very promising. The ore body continues and it is thought will soon show up sufficient- ly to warrant the erection of a mill on the property . . The few men who had been keep at work on the Santiago were laid off Thursday and all work around the property has been discontinued. The cave in,on the property is more serious than it was at first thought and it is said it will be impossible to work the ore body until the main shaft has been sunk to the ore level as it is impossible to get to the yvinze nom which the ore has been worked previously. The annual meeting of the stock- holders of the North Kendall Gold Mining Co. was held last evening. There wasl large representation and all present took the keenest interest in the proceedings. The following gentlemen were elected as directors: - W. A. Stoddard. Waiter S. Smith, W. C. Kruse, H. L. DeKalb, Marion I Burke, Edward Martin, Horace Hill. The reports show that the property is looking very well indeed Supt Kruse has opened up 140 feet of ore, and ten feet of this gives assays of about $10 a ton, the rest being low grade. This showing is such, however that the company expects to have a cyanide plant Installed within sixty days.—Daily News. A. S. Wright returned. from Chic- ago this week after an absence of some weeks, and his arrival develops the fact that one of the most impor- ant mining deals he has been con- nected with is in a fair way to be speedily closed up. Mr. Wright is now in presses:lion of the Cumberland mine at Maiden, having secured an option on this splendid property from the owners. Mr. Wright has interested eastern capitalists in the undertaking and it seems certain that the property will be taken over. It is the Intention of Mr. Wright to at once resume opera- tions and Charles Wright, of Kendall will probably be in Immediate charge of the work. The eastern men will be out here early in June and look over the mine. The closing up of this deal, which is looked upon as practically certain, will mean the erection of a big and fully equipped mill in the near fu - tee. The Cumberland was opened up by Peter Rosso, who later interested the late Oscar Stephens in the property and then R. M. Calkins, of the Mil- waukee, became associated with them. The death of Mr. Stephens delayed the devalopment of the mine, but Mr. Rosso has been doing more or lass work right along. The fret ship- ments from the Cumberland were made to the Emit Helens smelter and paid pretty well. Since then ship- mente have been made to Denver and Sand Point, Idaho. The last ship- ment was to the Idaho smelter and the lot of about 27 tons netted eves $7,000, or about $270 per ton. Mr. Rosso now has another carload of ore sacked, but the shipment has been delayed on account of the condition of the roads Argus At an important meeting of the ex- ecutive committee of the board of control of the Dry Farming congress at Billings last week it was decided that Montana's choice for the time of holding the congress la the last week in October. After some discussion of the weather conditions prevailing about that time of the year, acd other factors which must be considered in setting the time for the meeting, a telegram was sent to P. C. Bowman, chairman of the executive committee of the congress, urging that that body sniect the last week in October for t'ui Fourth Dry Farming congress.

A CLASH WITH TURNER. -- Retort of the Print Seller Who Longed to See the Artist. Turner, happening one day to pass a printshop, noticed in the , window a copy of one of the engravings from his famous \Liter Studiormn.\ The print was in a very dirty, ragged state. En- tering the shop, Turner asked to see the master and when the man came forward proceeded at once to blame him in no measured terms for having neglected so valuable a print and for having allowed it to become so dis- figured. The man protested that it was no fault of his, as he did but offer the engraving for sale in the same state in which he had bought it from some other dealer. This did not satisfy Turner, how- ever, and he and the man continued arguing for some time. At last the print seller lost all pa- tience. . \Perhaps sir,\ he said, \when you have quite finished what you have to say you will kindly tell me what you have to do with this engraving and what business is it of yours whether the print is clean or dirty.\ \This is what I have to do with it,\ answered the enraged artist—\it was I who drew the original of that print. My name is Turner, aid I did every line of that engraving with my own hand. Now do you wonder that I am angry at seeing my work in so dis- graceful a state?' \Indeed air!\ replied the print sell- er. \So you are the great artist him- self! All my life long it has been my wish that I might some day have the good fortune to see Mr. Turner. Now that I have keen him I sincerely hope that I may never see him again.\ REGULATING BALLOONS. France Made the First Laws Govern- ing Aerial Traffic. In 1871, when French balloons from beleaguered Paris were dropping on the \sacred soil\ of Prussia, a royal decree declared them confiscate as con- traband of war. And on the conclu- sion of peace a measure was passed through the German reichstag which forbade under penalty of death any future similar aerial violation of Ger- man territory during time of war. So long ago as 1830, again, balloon ascents were made illegal in Turku, so far as, regards Constantinople and forty miles around, and in 1872 the pro- hibition was extended to include the entire Turklah empire. To France, however, belongs the distinction of hav- ing made the first laws for the regula- tion at aerial traffic. In 1784 it was solemnly decreed that nobody should be permitted to go up in a balloon \or any other kind of aerostatic machine\ which was worked by burning spirits of wine Or any other means of making a fire. Later, fe 1811, it was enacted in France that henceforth no balloon, whether free or captive, should be per- mitted to ascend with any species of furnace or stove, that no one should be allowed to ascend in a balloon on - he carried a parachute and that ascents were not to be begun later than one hour before sunset nor earlier than a.n hour after sunrise. Further - there, no ascents whatever were to be undertaken during the garnering of the harvest nor for six weeks prior thereto. The First New Woman. \We new women are really not so new as we think we are,\ said one of them. \In the thirteenth century there were lots of us. Can anything 700 years old be now? The University of Bologna had for professor of Juris- prudence Movella d'Andria. She was no more new than beautiful. Her charms were so overpowering that the trustees made her lecture behind a curtain. When she lectured openly the students, their minds wholly occu- pied with her beauty, could not attend to what she said. Madonna Manzolina was professor of anatomy, Matilda 7'romboni taught languages and Marie Mag-nes1 held the chair of mathema- tics. This university was by no means a second rate one. On the contrary, It was perhaps the leading university of Europe. It had 10,000 students,\ Celled For the Author.

LeoPYright, 1908. by American Press Asso- ciation] This is a true story. It happened in 1865. - ' \There's no way, Becker, for us to keep soul and body together till spring except to go Into the mountains and cu wood.\ \Axed freeze our fingers and our noses and our feet. We may as well starve to death.\ , \It won't be long. This is the early part of January. The spring al be along in a couple of months, and we can go to prospering again. \Prospecting? How many years have I been digging holes in the ground for nothing. I tell you, Trim- mer, Inn through with prospecting, and as BOOB as I can get a regular job I'm going to take it\ \But you can't get a job just now, and we've nothing to eat. Come, cheer I. It's always darkest before day.\ The two ragged, discouraged men climbed the mountains of Calaveras county, Cal. There was a chance of their making some thirty or forty dol- lars a month, on which they could easily live amid • buy some clothes, but it Was a sad come -down from the roseate dreams with which they had begun to hunt for a fortune. They found an old abandoned miner's cabin, in which they made their home, a dispiriting place in which to live, for It was a perpetual reminder of an - other's failure. But they were not hunt- ing for gold in this region; they were keeping themselves alive. Every morning as Noon as it was light the sound of their axes rang in the wood and continued till the early winter twilight came on. Cord after cord was stacked up, each cord repre- senting days of hard labor. Meanwhile a snowstorm came down on them and covered the ground to a depth of two feet. The prediction as to frozen members was not verified, for there was plenty of wood to keep up a the. \We've got such a pile of brush here from chopped off branches,\ said Trim - 'racy to his partner one afternoon, \that we'd better get rid of It? So they touched a dame to it, and it was soon roaring and crackling, send- ing out a pleasant heat. It melted the snow beneath It and left an area of hot ground. \Here's a good chance for a roast,\ sald Becker. \I'm going to make an oven in this hot earth, and well cook • our deer meat\ \A good idea,\ replied Trimmer. \We haven't any currant Jelly, but the haunch will taste pretty good without it.\ . So Becker began to dig a hole for the baking. At the depth of two feet be I struck a bed of rock. \Goodt\ he exclaimed, \It's hot stone ; and will keep its heat. Give me the meat.\ The venison was brought in a bak- ing pan, and Trimmer was about to place it in the hole when Becker stop- ped him. \Hold on till I chip off a piece of the 'tone to see what it's like,\ be said. \I thought you were through with prospecting,\ Trimmer remarked satir- ically. \So I am. This isn't Prospecting: it's only yielding to a habit. Any man who has been hunting In the earth as long as we have wUl want to see earything he takes out? e broke off a bit of his oven bed, the venison was placed In the hole and (severed over, and the two men listened to the welcome sound of its sizzling. Becker took the piece of rock into his cabin, whore he lighted e candle, for It was /103V dark and the brush had burned to cinders. Trimmer was over the oven basting the venison when he beard his partner call \Come Isere, Trim.\ Trimmer went to the cabin where Becker was holding the chipping of rock to the e andle. \What do you think of that?\ asked Becker, his eyes standing out of his head as big as butter plates. \What do I think of itt Why, great Scott, maw; it's live rock!\ \That's what It is,\ replied Becker; \nothing inore nor loss—that is, if I know live rock when I see it, and think I do , :\ \Shake!\ shouted Trimmer. \We've struck It, and struck it big.\ It was rv supper of another kind from roasted venison that the partners per took of—e probable realisation of their - vanished wild dreams. The meat was savory, but their minds were not on it. They wore laying plans. Experience bad tan:tht them what to do. They would keep their Secret They would pre-empt their claim, They would loam the dip amide and the length and breadth of their newly discovered ledge. Spring came, and the partners were still ostensibly cutting wood, while they were really gathering Informs- titan- Otte day Becker went down Into the valley, appeared at an assay office, handed lu the chip of rock he had bro- ken from the floor of his improvised oven and left it to have It essayed. He weut bask to the assayers the next day, got his report and started tip the mountain.
