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.

Jantes hosp tal. The i ury ap- pened about 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, and as the local . physician did not have the proper facilities, and fearing that amputation might be necessary, a fast machine was press- ed into service and Mrs. Sharbarker and Dr. Holmson accompanied the lad on his arduous trip. At the hospital his injuries received attention and it is believed that amputation ..will not be nhcessary. Unless blood poisoning should set in or there should be oth.; er complications there is no doubt re- garding his ultimate recovery. FROM HOME PARK.
