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.

His head was severely cut and several cars passed over bis left leg before the train was stopped. The leg was severed close to bis body. Charley bad been to Kalispell on buni- nesa and on his wav baik had stopped here for a short visit with friends. He was a regular fireman on one of the freight engines. When attempting to board the freight for Whitefisb he car ried a bundle under his right arm and wore a heavy oyer coat. He grasped a rear ladder of a box car and in. another instant was dashed to pieces. After being caried to the depot platform he lay unconscious for some time and medical aid was summoned and Drs. Bobtnson and Consier responded to the call. Both west bouth west bound psssengers were at the depot^and alter a short conference with R. R. officials the mangled form of poor charlev was taken aboard the train for Wbitefish and hs was accompained to that place by Dr. Conaler. Before being placed on the train Roes became rational and was asked by the writer who he wan an where he came from. He said: “ My name ie Charley Rom. j am a fireman. I came from Whiteflsh and I am going to YTMtettsh What is the matter around here any wav. Where am I and what lias hap* pned? Won’t eouie of you straighten out my left leg down them and rub it a little. It seems to be cramped and tangled?” He epoke in a clear, fun voice and without the leant concern and it is almost certain that lie did not realise his awful condition. But when told that he bad a mix up with the cars and was fearfully hurt there was not the slightest change in his expression. After being taken to Whfteflih skilled surgeons attended him and done every thing they could to save his life but ho expired shortly after the operation was performed. The deceased was quite well and favorably known at Kalispell, Whitehall and Colombia Falla but the writer was unable to learn anything concerning his relatives or former home.
