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.

VOLUME NO. 27 J be Lb the to‘Z • OF •MONTANA HELENA state enstovic Lthra\ ortritr Poison—the Power City, the Commercial, Recreation and Scenic Center of the Garden of the Rockies! POLSON, LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19, , 1936 NUMBER 33 Pablo Death Still a Mystery, Coroner's Jury Decides Mon. That Louts Pablo, who was found dead, near the docks last Sunday morn- ing, met his death through a blow or blows over the head by a person or per- sona unknown, and exposure, was the verdict reached at a coroner's inquest conducted here Monday evening. Pablo was discovered by Frank Cohel- en of Kalispell who stayed in Poison over the week end, and had taken an early morning walk down to the lake. He discovered Pablo's body lying face upward on the ice a short distance from the water's edge. Dr. John Dimon, coroner and Sheriff J. L. Taulbee were stunmonded and it was found that both of the man's legs were bruised as was his right hip, evi- dently from a fall. Over his left ear was a wound that officers first thought was from a bullet but a post-mortem that afternoon revealed it was evident- ly caused by a blunt instrument. Dr. Dimon stated that Pablo had been dead five or six hours when found. Officials believe that Pablo met with foul play while others contend that he was intoxicated Saturday night and probably wandered down to the dock and jumped or fell from there onto the ice. Indications were that the man had crawled a short distance after be- ing injured. The officers are investigating every angle of the case in hope of clearing up Poison's passible murder mystery. Funeral services for Pablo were con- ducted yesterday morning from the Catholic church in Ronan and burial was made there. Mr. Pablo was born on the Flathead reservation June 14, 1877, and had spent most of his life here. Be was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Michel Pablo, pioneer residents of the valley, for whom the present town of Pablo is named. He leaves three sons, Lawrence, Charles and Joe and three daughters, Mrs. Earl Smith, Mrs. Genevieve Matt and Mrs. Albert Decker all of whom re - punted to Poison's 18 -yard line to start side on the reservation. off the second quarter and recovered a! - AMERICAN LEGION THANKSGIVING ter the slippery ball eluded Davis.

If the court deems a re-count necessary the county commissioners will be called in extra session to canvass the entire votes of the two precincts.

GREENER PASTURES FOUND ON OTHER SIDE BY LOCAL HUNTER The old adage \greener pastures can be found on the other side of the fences was proven once more, Si. Westfall can testify to that. Si, a former eastern Montana resident, had heard a lot about the unexcelled big game hunting in Western Montana, so when the season opened he thought he would go out and try his luck at getting a deer. After spending several days tramping through the wilds of this part of the state, without any luck Si became disgusted and left for his old home near Moccasin. While there he bagged a five point buck. WANTED AT CONRAD ON A FRAUDULENT CHECK CHARGE K. B. Haladay was arrested here this week by Sheriff J. L.

Deaths Reported During Past Week FIRE DEPT. MAKES TEST RUN; SIREN FROZEN IN FOG AND RAIN The sound of the fire siren late Monday afternoon and again Tuesday morning were not cries of \wolf -wolf\ nor were they warning of a fire but it was like this, the Poison fire depart- ment planned to make a test run Mon- day in order to get organized properly before they make their test before the board of fire underwriters. They were assembled at the fire hall and the city clerk was given instructions to turn the siren on. At the proper time he pushed I the button and nothing happened. Very much chagrined he called central at the telephone office and asked her if she would turn in the alarm from there. The same was repeated there and still I no siren, so the department was re- quired to make the run with only the, siren on the truck sounding. An Investi- gation showed that the fog and rain of the past week had frozen the fan in the siren almost solid. Tuesday morning a short blast announced that the ice had been cleared away and the siren was again ready for use. Ernie Claffery, street commissioner, has announced that when only a short blast of the siren is heard they are I merely trying it out to be sure that it hasn't frozen again.

Science Teacher Leaves Ronald Kretzer. science instructor the Poison high school left last week for Valier. where he will teach. His place here is being filled by Jacob Bauer Annual Appeal Made For the County Wide Red Cross Members A. B. Levisee, chairman of the Lake county chapter American Red Cross, announced this week that Mrs. Anna W. Kemp would be county chairman for this year's Red Cross Roll Call to be held during the next week, ending on Thanksgiving Day, November 26. Plans have been made for a thorough county- wide enrollment, with representatives secured to handle the enrollment of members in the various outlying com- munities. Mr. Levisee pointed out that during the past year the Red Cross had been called upon to render assistance in 106 disasters for an average of two a week. Thirty-nine states were visited by one or more calamities last year, while the total number of persons receiving Red Cross assistance in one form or an- other as a result of these disasters totaled 385,000. One of the last year's major disasters as we all know, concentrated itself in Montana's capitol city, Helena. Here too, thru the instantaneous efforts of the executive board of the Lewis and Clark chapter. the Red Cross took up the responsibility with the first evi- dence of suffering and distress as a re- sult of the quakes. When the damaging tremors subsided, the task of rehabilita- tion was begun. Chapters thruout the state of Montana offered financial as- sistance to aid the stricken citizens of Helena. A sum amounting to $19,700 was sent to the Helena chapter from the chapters thruout the state, while the National Red Cross added to this sum a total of $74,500, making the total ex- pended by the Red Cross in Helena to around $95.000. In order to meet each emergency which arises the Red Crnas depends upon the support of the public thru the yearly membership campaign. Only fifty cents out of each membership, whether it be a one dollar, two dollar. or five dollar membership. goes to the National organization. The rest remains In the Lake county chapter for local emergency needs. V.F.W. POST AND AUXILIARY INSTALL OFFICERS FOR YEAR.
