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.

Long and lean and wrinkled with the sun of eighty-two years. his mind is keen and his humor as refreshing as it must have been fifty odd years ago when he first came to Montana. \By Oar,\ he said, \this countree, she tam good place then.\ He came from Edmonton. Alberta, and tells of living on buffalo meat for weeks at a time and nothing else with it, but they did not mind that as all the In- dians were meat eaters and required nothing more. When he moved across the river, there wasn't any store in Poison, but Henri Thierrault (pronounced Terry Oh) came later. The old timers differ as to who was here first, he or Harry Lambert. Anyway, he says he planted a large garden and Thierrault and his wife used to visit them, and once Mrs. Thierrault stayed with them three days and taught his wife .how to cook veg- etables. She had never cooked anything but meat. Now, he says there's no meat to cook. In those days there was no ferry. But Baptiste Eneas. who lived here had a Skiff, and those cowardly souls who were afraid to swim their horses across the river, could ride in the skiff and lead their horses behind. The Indians were smart then, he said and did not go to school, but they were better off. All Indians had good horses, lots of cattle, good clothes and a belt full of money, and would sit down and gamble any time or place. They did not get drunk much then, he said, and If they did, the Chief would say \whip him\ and the other men would strip the offender and lay it on with ven- geance. Only the Fourth of July and New Years was any laxity in this rule allowed. After a reasonable time had elapsed the Chiefs would say \That's enough, no more drinking now,\ and they obeyed. He showed me a picture of a little! girl he had brought home to raise when he found her in a cabin on Camas1 Prairie with her family all dead of small pox. He called her Maggie Koot- enay, and said she grew to be a fine woman. He recalled the tinie he and his wife were hunting in the Kalispell country and had killed and dried the meat of thirty-eight deer and were out of cof- fee and decided to go by Derneavllle and get some groceries. They were riding along, and found by the side of the road, where some one had lost it, a large pile of coffee, sugar, tobacco and everything they needed, so they did not go into town. He knew well Lawrence Finley, early day bad man and murderer many times over. Lawrence killed a prospector east of Kalispell. The two prospector part- ners had found quite a bit of gold and Lawrence shot one of them and the other got away. One of the Chiefs told Lawrence not take all that gold into any town or it might be investigated, and he would be hung, so Lawrence emptied the large buckskin poke into several smaller ones and spent it gradually and though he and others tried many times to find the original pay streak, they never succeeded. The old man Alphonse says Lawrence Fin- ley tried to kill him once. He shot at him and missed and before he could reload, Alphonse had a gun on him and made him throw his gun down. They were camped on Big Prairie and were driving a large band of horses over the old trail over the mountains. When he told him of young Pierre Paul, who Is being tried for the murder of Law- rence, he said \By Gar, he did a good job, they ought to turn him loose. Lawrence ought to be killed long time ago, that one.\ Alphonse tells of Little Louise, who he says is 105 years old now. How she could play the Indian ball game. The ball was made of deer hair covered with buckskin and was quite large and was kept in the air with sticks that were whittled in the shape of a small shovel. The men and women both played and Louise was the quickest and best player of all, and he said she was such a good woman. The old timers liked their women to be good, it seems. He tells of a tale of Mitch Michele. who, while coming along the trail from Dayton in the early days, after dark, heard a cry ahead, as of a child cry- ing. He jogged on at a slower pace. and the cries kept getting plainer. Soon he came close and dismounted in the long grass and lit a match. There, sure enough, was an Indian baby in a cradle board and making the night echo with It's cries. Mitch hung the cradle board on his saddlehorn to the terror of his horse, which went Jumping through the grass with the cradle board slap- , ping him at every jump. The horse finally quieted down and Mitch and I the baby jouneyed on in the dark, At - ter about three or four miles, Mitch heard another wailing, and came upon the parents of the baby, both drunk and crying because they had lost their papoose. They sat down to have an- other drink and gone off and forgotten It. Alphonse kept open house then as he does now. He said \Lots of people came by—some broke, some not, but all could eat and get some socab. Sometimes Jim McCarthy comes. He's smart man, a judge in Kalispell, he come and we talk over the old days when we were young together. They are most all dead, the old ones, and not many come that I knew in the old days.\ Old Alphonse drew on his long pipe and spat in the box of dirt by his chair \Pretty soon I go too,\ he said, and did not look sad at the thought. Alphonse Gochet lives in the log cabin opposite the fox -farm. He told me many stories but as he does not speak plainly, it was hard to get them straight enough to write them in full.— Mrs. Charles Buell. The Misses Alberta and Greta Coop- er of Ponca City. Okla., are guests at the home of Mr, and Mrs. C. M. Suth- erland. The young ladies are nieces of Mrs. Sutherland and are on a tour of the west. Ingratitude We can be thankful to a friend for a few acres, or a little money; and yet for the freedom and command of the whole earth, and for the great benefits of our being, our life, health, and rea- son, we look upon ourselves as under no obligation—Seneca. Difficulty What is difficulty? Only a word in- dicating the degree of strength requi- site for accomplishing particular ob- jects; a mere notice of the necessity for exertion; a bugbear to children and fools; only a mere stimulus to men.— Samuel Warren. Carefulness For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost; being overtaken and slain by the enemy; all for the want of care about a horseshoe nail.—Benjamin Franklin. Ignorance It is with narrow-souled people as with narrow -necked bottles—the less they have in them the more noise they make in pouring it out—Pope, SAXE:WAY - STORES 1)1*, 1 it sistvroc) NI WI i ticsti i NA/A s - r - I `Vo•HasigaRIP^M..111111r 4 •W*111.71• Poison and Ronan.
