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.

' An extraordinary accident oc- curred at Bagneux, near Moline, France, recently, diming an electrical atorm. A team of three horses, eaeh drawing a cart full of sand, was struck by lightning and all three horses, with their loads, were hurled into a deep ravine some distance sway, where they lay in a Mixed heap. The strangest feature of the ease is that net a grain of sand was spilled on the road, nor was, there any trace of the wheels of the heavy carts leading from the spot where they were struck. -Iii fa the whole , team—horses and load:e, s to have been bodily lifted and shot into the ravine, The carter escaped with *light ehoOk, , In the county' _ large import:nt loo it is no less impor It is the great rug shell county.

PERILOUS OCCUPATION. The Queensland pearl diver begins his hazardous work at break of day. Attired in his diving suit, he stepli on to the ladder over the sida, and hatens the life line around him; the tender screws on the face glass, the pumps are started, and down goes the diver to look for shell. If he is on ground where shell is plentiful he fills his bag, then allows his dress to fill with air, which bridge hint to the surface, when he is hauled to the boat by the life line. He empties his bag onto the deck and goes down for another bagful. Some of the divers occasionally work in twenty- five fathoms.

BOY SCOUTS IN RUSSIA Tiny Warriors Go Through Their iv- , 'lotions Under the Eye of the Emperor. The review of the boy scouts by the czar at St. Petersburg was a de- lightful spectacle. The vast expanse . of the Mars field was checkered by the scarlet, green, white and khaki uniforms of the tiny warriors, whose evolutions were watched with delight by immense crowds. The bright sun- shine was tempered by a breeze. As the emperor and his suite rode down the lines, greeting each detach- ment, the boys answered in Russian soldier fashion: \We wish good health to your majesty.\ Each eepa- rate command then demonstrated its special aptitudes. To the accompa- niment of their own bands they went through drills and gymnastic exer- cises. The Tashkent battalion pro- duced some excellent fencers;, the Odessa contingent ) 1,000 strong, showed admirable training; there was a football team, which kicked the ball among the imperial suite, much to the czar's amusement; and small 'firemen climbed dummy houses. The march past of the 6,000 boys lasted 40 minutes. One little drummer was' five years old. A tiny brigade had a tiny ambulance drawn by a donkey. The czar, who wee hugely delighted, thanked each detachment, and after the review expressed his gratitude to the officers and the schoolmasters. The movement is growing rapidly. Russia will soon have 200,000 boy soldiers. IN THE FUTURE. Registration Officer—Where wem you born? Possible Voter—I don't know ex- actly.

Class freight rates from ,Tacoma and Seattle, Wash., and Vortland, Ore., to points in Washington., Oregon, Idaho and ,Montana were declared unreasonable Friday by the interstate commerce commis- sion and reductions averaging about 20 per cent were ordered by Jamiary 2, 1912. The decision of the commission effeote all the railroads operating in the Pacific northwest. The pro. ceedings were popularly known lie the \back haul rate\ cases, in which. the railroads charge for back haul from Pacific coast terminals to intermediate points, although the freight is unloaded and de- livered on the west bound haul. The carriers explained they could not stand a reduction of 20 per cent. Examination of the revenues convinced the commis- sion that the lbeses would aggre. gate only about one per cent of the net oPerating revennea of the net operating revenues of theAnes ••40 f ISTRMEHT.

Of course, pad- ding is resorted to, but this does not always remedy the fault. The worse the deformity the more patient and persistent effort is required. Because the right shoulder dips just a trifle do not ignore the fact, for middle age will find the trouble to ban progressed considerably. Take your place in a stiff backed chair and practice raising and lowering the higher shoulder for 20 to 30 times day. In fact, practice this exercise whenever the occasion will permit. Keep the beck erect against the back , of the chair, and you will soon gee an improvement. THUS A MISSION EXPANDED. Ten years ago the Rev. P. N. Tsu, now the rector of the only self.sup. porting native church of the Preto - tent Episcopal mission in China—St Savior's, Shanghai—came to Wusib with two boys and lived on his boat until he could establish a mission. He was soon joined by the Rev. 0. F. Mosher. The work has expanded, as it does in all stations where men can be supplied, until there are now two compounds—on one a dispensary and residence, on the other the chapel, a woman's building, a residence for the missionaries, and soon there will be a church and a catechists' sebooL— From the Spirit of /if inai01114(1 A NEW VARIETY.
