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.

HELENA, MONTANA Ilistorwel Suclet:i THE ROUNDUP RECORD VOLUME VI. NO. 48. MRS. SULLY FOUND DEAD TWO -YEAR -OLD DAUGHTER DID NOT REALIZE MOTHER WAS DEAD. The body of Mrs. Jake Suelly was found dead in the cabin on her home- stead last Sunday afternoon by A. A. Holliday entered the room, she opened snuggling up to it in vain hopes to accumulate some warmth, was her little two -year -old daughter Beulah, dressed only in her night clothes. As Holliday entered the orom, she opened her eyes and as she was lifted from the bed she explained falteringly in her baby language that she was \hun- gry and cold, and mama's sleeping.\ Tho she had apparently been without food in the cold cabin for a whole day she did not seem to have suffered any ill effects. The sheriff and coroner were Imme- diately apprised by telephone of the conditions that obtained and they left Sunday evening to make the nec- essary investigation and bring the body in to town. The condition of things at the cabin proved that the death was undoubtedly caused by hemmorrhage resulting from causes which may have been accidental or inflicted by the woman herself. It was reasonably certain that no outside party had been implicated in the oc- currences that bad taken place. As brought out by the post mortem later held by Dr. Brissenden, the cause of death was hemmorrhage caused by abortion either induced or accidental. Mr. Holliday believes that she was undoubtedly alive on Saturday as he noticed smoke issuing from the chim- ney of the house when he came by there on his way to Roundup on that day, tho he did not see her. The oc- casion for his stopping there an Sun- day was to get a horse collar which had been loaned her by him some time ago. Even then, since there were no sounds from the inside of the house, he would probably have passed by without entering had no instinct or some other sub -conscious prompt- ing that everything about the place was not allright, induced him to make a further investigation. This circum- stance in all probability saved the life of the little one, as the road past the Suelly place is very infrequently used, and the chances are that it would not have been passed again by anybody for ten days. Mrs. Holmes of Fromberg, a sister of the deceased, arrived here in re- sponse to a telegram from Sheriff ills - 00, on Tuesday evening and she wilt take the little one home with her. Mrs. Suelly was thirty-seven years of age and the mother of five living children, four of whom are with their father, the first husband of the wo- man, J. Anderson of Hyrum, Utah. Her husband, Jake Suelly was com- mitted to the state penitentiary to serve a five-year term, at the last ses- sion of the district court held here. The body will be buried here by request of the relatives. PIONEER CLUB HAS SOME PARTY Fourth Annual Reception Social Or- ganization Proves Big Success.

The rooms were beautifully decorated with bunting and cut flowers which to- gether with the beautiful gowns worn by the ladies and the full dress suits of some of the gentlemen presented a very pretty picture.

FIGHTS FOR VAL- UABLE PROPERTY Brit Steen Now Defending Fourth Contest Against His Timber and Stone Entry. Brit Steen went to Lewistown Sun- day to be present at the final hearing before the United States land office at that place of the latest contest filed against his timber and stone entry ad- joining the townsite of Roundup. The contestant in this case is H. W. Her- zog of Genesee, N. D., who owns sever- al tracts of real estate in this county. A hearing in this case was also held before United States Commissioner Wm. J. Jameson of this place Feb. 2, 3 and 4. This is the fourth contest initiated against this same tract of land. Mr. Steen filed on the land June 17, 1907, as a timber and stone entry. Since that time the land has become chiefly valuable as residence property, the city of Roundup having grown so that it now adjoins the land. The basis of all the contests have been that the land is more valuable for agricultural purposes than for timber and stone, the contention being that there is very little timber on the land. AGED VETERAN BEGINS DISTRIBUTING WEALTH It Was Suddenly Acquired and Old Soldier Is Anxious to Get Rid of It. LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18.—Thru a settlement out of court, which obvi- ated a contest of the will left by Miss Julia Garrett of Philadelphia, C int. Robert Hancock Walter, an 82-yeai old veteran of the Civil War, received $144,000, which he began distributing today among his children and grand- children. Captain Walter, who is also a de- scendant of John Hancock, is critically ill at his home in Pasadena, Cal., and declared he wanted to distribute his suddenly -acquired wealth before he died. Mrs. Garrett died recently, leaving an estate praised at more than $20,- 000,000, altho she herself had valu- ed it at only $600,000. The bulk of it was willed to Isaac Tatnall Star, who agreed to a settlement out of court with Captain Walter and his three sisters, who claimed to be Miss Gar- rett's nearest of kin.

MAN WITH OVERLOAD OF WHITEFISH IS FINED He Pleads Guilty in Hamilton Justice's Court and Is Fined $25. HAMILTON, Feb. 18.—While stag- gering along a local street this morn- ing under a load of whitefish, lured from the Bitter Root In this vicinity, Matt lika was arrested by Deputy Sheriff John Burch and Chief of Police Grush for violation of the law which makes it an offense for a person to have more than 50 pounds of game fish in his possession at one time. The officer made a good guess as to the weight of the fish, as the park, sack and all weighed 178 1 / 2 polls& when put on the scale. like was or raigned before Justice of the Peace Peshick, where he pleaded guilty and paid a line of $25.

The first model of the machine is now in use at the store of Al Shaw & Co. where it is attracting considerable at- tention, a large number of people dai- ly taking advantage ef the opportun- ity to register their names in order to secure a chalice to participate in the distribution of prizes which takes place every Saturday. Around a small roller, which is par- tially exposed, a strip of paper upon which are printed numbers and blanks for name and address, is passed be- ing unwound from one spool onto another by means of a crank on the right side of the machine. A bell rings every time a number is exposed to view. Any person who desires may register his or her name on the blank provided after each number, there be- ing absolutely no charge or condition attached. The numbers which are to receive the prizes may be chosen in advance or by choice afterwards. Ev- ery Saturday night the roll ttf paper upon which the names have been registered is taken out and the iden- tity of the prizewinners is thus learn- ed. You are permitted to register as often as you please the only require- ment being that your names must be at least 50 numbers apart. The machine is purely an advertis- ing proposition, the object being to get people to call at the store when- ever they find it convenient. Mr. Shaw expects to manufacture the ma- chine and place it on the market, the success it is meeting with here being an indication that it will have a ready sale. The lucky ones who registered their napes opposite the right numbers last week were: Fred Snicker, first; Elmer Schefsick, second; Chick Knapp, third. YOUTHFUL WIFE AIDS HUB IN BURGLARIES Dressed as Boy and Armed, She Stood Guard Outside Houses He Robbed. PITTSBURG, Feb. 18.—Mrs. Elmer Anschott, 17 years old, confessed that she had taken part in many burglaries for which her husband, who is 18 years old, was arrested and held for court today, according to the police. She says that, dressed as a boy, her hair cut short, she stood guard out- side the house he robbed, her revolver under her coat. Silverware and other valuables, alleged to have been stolen by the couple, were recovered by the police. ALLEGED SLAVER IN JAIL MILES CITY, Feb. 18.—Frank Wal- ters is in jail charged with white sla- very. The girl in the case was also taken to jail and placed in the wo- man's quarter.

Thereafter histallmeints of the story will be shown every Thursday for a full year. It is unique in more ways than one. The average photoplay is told in one, two, three or in rare cases six reels. A very few elaborate screen produc- tions have run as many as twelve reels. A reel consists of 1000 feet of photographic film and is ordinarily run off before an audience in less than twenty tninutes. Some of the lighter comedies and farces are what is known as \splits\ or more than one subject to the reel of 1000 feet. This Innovation is a fifty -two -reel subject. It would take 16 or seven- teen hours to see it all. It is not the intention of its pralucers, the Mutual Film Corporation, however, to hold an audience for an entire day at one per- formance as the Chinese do. \Our Mutual Girl\ Is a serial just like a continued story in a magazine and will be shown one reel a week, in con- junction with other moving pictures, for an entire year. Another unique feature of this film is that it is a fashion film and thru it the very last cry in styles will be car- ried each week to every corner of the United States, so that the women who cannot shop on Fifth Avenue will have an opportunity to see how up-to-the- minute gowns and hats and furs look on women who know how to wear them. Even those who have lived in New York all their lives will see in this serial more of the intimate life of the Metropolis and the real people who count in it than they ever have seen before. They will be brought closer to the leaders in society, in financial, In musical and dramatic circles and see the parts, not enacted by paid play- ers, but by the actual celebrities them- selves. To maintain a sustained interest from week to week in this full year's serial, a powerful story of heart in- terest is introduced and centres about a young country girl, whose wealthy and influential aunt brings her to the great city to make of her a Fifth Ave- - nue society belle. In the process of metamorphosis she is outfitted at the smartest shops and visits all the big show houses of the city, meeting all sorts of prominent and interesting pet till-. The first reel of \Our Mutual Girl\ was released on Monday, Jan. 19, and was seen for the first time in New York at the Broadway Theatre with Norma Phillips in the title role; May- mo Kelso, as the New York aunt, Ji- quel Lanee, as the count whom the girl meets in New York and who sues for her hand and Antonio Moreno, as the country boy playfellow, who fol- lows her to the city. Among others in the vast company on the screen are Paderewiski, Ysaye, Tetrazzini, Jean Gerardy, the stars of the stage from all the leading plays deavored to show that the killing was , to sell the stuff at a Finnish settle- have to work for seven years. as the now appearing at th, New York in self-defense. went near here, girl had kept him all that time.\ Theatres and such oth,rs in the public BODY OF HARRY WILLS, GAGE RANCHER, FOUND WITH BUL- LET HOLE THRU HEAD. The body of Harry Wills was found dead in his homestead cabin near (lags last Saturday by Lewis II. Jones who lives a short distance from there. A bullet hole film the unfortunate man's bead evidently fired from a .22 rifle lying at his feet told the story of the 'manner of his death. The man had evidently been dead for four . or five days. He was last seen alive by Mr. Thompson about a week before the discovery of his death and he had at that time agreed to do some work for Mr. Thompson. As he was decid- edly under the influence of liquor at the time nothing was thought of his failure to appear for work as agreed. Thru a letter found among the ef- fects of the dead man it was found that he had a brother in Denver and Sheriff Fisco, immediately communi- cated with him and received a mes- sage in return that a night letter would follow the message giving in- structione in regard to the disposition of the remains. Up to the disposition time, this message has not been re- ceived but the body is still being held on the supposition that the message may have been delayed or lost in transit. The coroner's inquest was held on Tuesday and a verdict of suicide was returned. Wills was about 60 years of age and had been living in the vicinity for the past fifteen years. He was somewhat addicted at times to the exessive use of intoxiants, and follow- ing his prolonged sprees would be- come very melancholy. It is thought that an attack of temporary insanity induced by melancholia caused him bo comm It the desperate act. NO DECREASE IN APPROPRIATIONS Agricultural Bill Shows Increase of Nearly Million over Last Year. WASHINGTON, Feb. 19.—Chairman Lever„ of the house committee on agriculture appropriation bill. It ag- gregates $18,947,000, exclusive of per- manent appropriations, an increase of $960,000 over last year's total. Many radical changes are proposed, includ- ing the reorganization of the weather bureau, reorganization and systematiz- ing of department work. It appro- priates $26,000 to encourage and aid agricultural developments on govern- ment reclamation projects thru dem- onstrations and advice to settlers. MR. LOPEZ AGAIN BILLINGS, Feb. 17.—Ralph Lopez. the Mexican bandit, is in the Bad Lands, between White Sulphur Springs and Great Falls, headed for the Canadian line, according to a tele- gram received by Sheriff Orrick, sent from Summit yesterday by C. S. Mar- tin. The dispatch says that \Lopez was at RIngling Monday, road on mo- tor car with me from Hamen to Ring. ling.\ No further details were given and it is believed the man with whom the fugitive rode was not at that time aware Lopez was being sought in this region. Alti Pendergraft of Worland, Wyo., here today, declared that Lo- pez's indentification is positive. eye who may be in the city from time to time during the year. New York's new mayor, John Pur- roy Mitchell; its fighting district at- torney Charles S. Whitman; its depu- ty police commissioner and head of its detective bureau, George Dougherty, ard Inspector Faurot, the great finger print expert, have all been photo- graphed with \Our Mutual Girl,\ as have many of the most prominent MOS and women in every field of endeavor. The reel was a revelation to the picture fans and a delight to the many who saw in it their first moving picture. Many women prominent in New York society were present and marveled at the accurate reproduclon of such shops as \Lucile's.\ with her famous mannequin beauties displaying the latest models in gowns and wrap& and even bathing costumes.
