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.

Our esteemed friend, Larry Dobell of The Butte Miner, thinks that The Madisonian is not living up to its reptiUttion of last year. When game' fish were sent the editor \every week.\ The Miner notes that sick- ness in the family might have cause ed this lapse of fishing news, and The Miner is right in its conjecture. When it was learned that the \little woman\ in which we were all so much concerned waS able to sit up, then the fishermen of the county sent in daily, Larry—not weekly—the choice catches of Madison county streams. --There-were trout of many varieties, the graceful grayling and the meaty • whitefish. Madison county n claims to be peer of any in the state as to game fish, and these cav to the editorial horne—and are coming yet. Many__ fishing parties are now on the Mad- ison and at the Madison county lakes. Many have gone dirough the city nearly every day the past few weeks, and but few have returned as yet. The fame of these streams brings people from all over the state, but of course, those entering the valley from the east side miss Virginia City. But The Madisonian ventures the prediction that when the season is over there will be some whopping fish stories to tell—back- ad up by tapeline measurement of tile beariful trout and grayling takes. 4 FROIE TWIN BRIDGES. arlea SelWaY•s pr.enattent Bridges isitizen, was a butsiness visi- tor Tuesday to the *aunty seat.

The dry land farmers of Montana were given recognition by the Mon- tana State fair at the recent meet of the board when a sum of 21,000 was authorized as premiums to be award- ed in the non -irrigated division for dry -land farmers. After many re- - quests - from farmers, --exhibitors and judges the directors decided last win- ter to eliminate the non -irrigated di- vision and put both types of irrigated and dry -land products on the same basis, but so many requests have been made recently in .behalf of the non - irrigated division that it was deemed advisable to re-establish_ it. The prizes will be awarded in sev- enty-six lots for grains and seeds, vegetables, inot crops, forage 'crops, and sheaf-exhibits.-Inaernaehaa these awards are not listed in the premium catalog which has been sent out over the state a circular specifying the separate prizes is being _mailed to ev- ery farmer in the state who received a catalog. While the awards as out- lined in the 1914 catalog amounted to the same as last year, the addition of $1,000 will increase the awards this year above those of any previous fair. Although the entries last year increased 36% per cent over.1912, it is estimated that, with the *vival of the Dry Land division, this year's en- tries will far exceed those of 1913.

Like‘many another prospector who had followed the siren lure of gold in the hopes of millions, Joseph An- drews, who died Saturday in his lit- tle prospector's cabin three miles from Woodville in the mountains, re- fused six years ago an offer of $50,- 000 for a gold ,claim near Virginia City. His claim is not worth 50 cents today, says The 'Butte Post. Mr. Andrews refused the $50,000 of- fer claiming his mine would one day be worth millions. He died before hope of realizing his dream - ha - -- left him. 7 • Mr. Andrews was born - 60 years ago in Finland. He came to America when R. very young lad and scarcely had a trace of the foreign accent, He had prospected in Montana for - 40 years and for the past several years was custodian of the reservoir of the Butte Street Railway company at Elk Pdrk. He followed prospecting all his life. He was not widely acquaint- ed. He was reserved, bue a man of fine character, quiet, honorable and, the few who knew him respected and admired him. CORONER'S INQUEST. Coroner John O'Gorman was called to Ennis last Sunday, where an in- quest was held on the remains of John Stanaford, a sheepherder who had been missing for many days. A search had been made in the hills for Stanaford, without success, and last week an unknown man told Lee For- rest that a body was lying in the Madison river about 1% miles from the Ennis bridge. The corpse rested upon its back, with a shotgun between the legs, and it was evident that sui- cide had been committed by means of a at - ring - Mid - to the trim smile the man's foot. There was a wound in the head, and the verdict of suicide was rendered. Stanaford had been in the country for about 12 years and just previous to his disappearance showed unmistakable signs of losing his mind. The jury, consisted n of Henry Kammerer, C. L. Dennis, Hired J. Weingart, James Forshaw, _Jack -Daughters and G. G. Wheat. . OLMSTEAD COMMITTED. A. F. Olmstead, aged 70, of the Olmstead Mining & Milling company of .Norris„was brought into the city Tuesday. where a hearing tutiOhcon- ducted by Dr. H. H. Townshend of Ruby and Dr. R. H. Dyer of Sheri- dan as to his sanity. Mr. Olmstead has some fine mining properties at Norris, and a new mill had just been completed. Worry over the work aid- ed by a severe attack of Bright's dis- ease, affected the unfortunate man's mind, and his committment to Warm Spring's Was •otdered. LIVING AT THE MINE. County Treafinreri E.

Because Ed Williams and Overton Stensal of Beaverhead county sud- denly began selling beef to butchers while it was known that they had no cattle on- their ranch, the suspicions of Stock Inspector Jack Collins were aroused and he arrested the two men Friflay on a charge of stealing two head of cattle belonging to Paul Pe- senti of Madison county. The arrest was made on the ranch of the men ten miles across -the Silver -Bow -coun- ty line in Beaverhead and on the west side of the Big Hole. Williams and Stensal run a few horses on their ranch, but no cattle. Collins found the hides of the slaught- ered animals on the ranch. The pris- oners were ta'ke'n to Dillon for their hearing, and Williams' bond was fix- ed at $3,000 and Stensal's at $2,000. They could- not furnish bail and will_ await trial in the Beaverhead county jail. AIL ABOARD FOR DENVER. • Ptistmaster J. Z.
