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.

OiSTORL.ICL 1%3 .0 g, OF MONTANA I-IEL.C.r-! xtrver Poison—the Power City, the Commercial, Recreation and Scenic Center of the Garden of the Rockies! Live to Tell of 200 Foot Drop Over an Embankment, Dam Riding to what seemed almost their certain death, Ernest }Sisson, Mrs. Mary Woodcock and Clara Courville, all of St. Ignatius, escaped without being critically injured, after their car car- eened madly down a 200 foot embank- ment near the intake camp at the date early yesterday morning. The group had taken Fred St. Ger- maine, who is emproyed with the grave- yard crew, out to work from Poison. Disregarding the sign which peohibits cars from driving into the camp the party drove up to the place where Mr. St. Germaine was to go to work on the north side of the river and after letting him out they turned to come back to Poison. Only a short distance away the car left the road and plunged down the almost perpendiculer embankment near the tunnel intake, turning over and over. Near the bottom of the hill the car struck a tree stump Which tore the roof off and with the next turn the three occupants were thrown out of the machine. Nearby workers rushed the injured to the company hospital where they were given first aid treatment and later taken to the hospital at St. Ignatius, where an examinaion showed that Mrs. Woodcock who was the most seriously Injured is suffering from a slight con- cussion. The other two sustained only contusions. Sisson was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon.

County are Winners In Many of Contests Pert°d ' There are a few who contend that they never heard of the state income tax law and yet they have incomes suf- ficient to require them to file a re- turn. The great crop of delinquents for whom the Board of Equalization must diligently search comes from that class who neglect or forget to tile their re- turns. This crop of delinquents must pay the penalty for this oversight. Even Ignorance of the law is not acceptable In any court as an excuse for failure to file a return. If this excuse were ac- cepted there would be no incentive for taxpayers to file their returns on time. Rebekah Offielid Coming The Board has no desire to impose On April 14, Mrs. Ardis Dixon of penalties.

They have a tendency to destroy that cordial relationship which should exist between the taxpaying public and the administrative offices of the Board.
