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.

There are people who think they are pious when, they are only bilious. The last thing we should try to do in this world is to force our . religious opinions and prejudice's on others. Some people say they do not believe in God even. I do not helieve them. No ,one can sin- cerely say that. You ask me to give an inter - 'view saying what I would say to the readers of 3,000 newspapers. I would say-toAtem--to-be-very- reful about- believing - all - they - see in the newspapers. I know of no place where there Is more philosophy than in a barnYard. You can learn much from animals. Within their cir- cle they know much more than we do. He who cares to do no more than he is paid for . will never be paid for more than he does. Public clamor is almost always in the wrong. It is so loud that we think it includes everybody, whereas, in fact, It may include very few. One stridulous grass- hopper in the angle of a fence makes more noise than the whole noble herd of cattle gear J. Gaynor, 'Late Mayor of New York. TO THE VIRGINS. Gather ye rosebuds while may. Old time is still p -flying. And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying. The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun.
