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.

He began actual construction of the machine April f3, 1913, and com- pleted it Nov. 12, 1918. He plans to fly from Savannah. Ha., to New York city in eleven hours; from New York to St. John, N.

It cost $50,000. Captain Batson claims it will attain a speed of sixty miles an hour on the water. In flight he clatms for it a speed of 125 miles an hour. including the crew of six men, it will carry sixteen passengers in the cabin i and lifeboat and as much as 5,000 pounds over its own weight.
