James Ice lives yiDog Tooth precinct
James, though a young man compar
atively, recently married the widow Pil
low, who, by the way, has several grown
sons by her lirst husband. The boys
have no liking lor Ice, and have mado It
very uncomfortable for him ever since he
has been about the "Pillow place."
Some time ago Ice concluded to give it
np he could not live In pence with the
Pillow boys, and he left the place aud
went South. But when his money gave
but, aud being unable to find employ
ment, he could stand it no longer,
and he determined to return to his home
in Dog Tooth and make another effort to
live with the old lady in peace. So far as
the wile was concerned, there was no
trouble; but the boys "raised the
evil," and as Ice says, "a while
pack of hounds" could not live with
them. Mr. Ice had been at home but a
few days when the boys commenced
their old tricks. On Friday last lift was
away from home the greater part of the
day, and when lie returned in the even-
ng he met with a warm reception a
ery warm reception. Julian W. Pil
low, the oldest of the boys, with shot
gun in hand, met step-daddy Ice at the
door, and informed him that he had con
cluded henceforth to boss the ranch, and
that if he (Ice) made any tuss about it he
would get him ready lor the coroner In
short order. Ice did not think it safe to
fool with young Pillow, and left home
aud went to a neighbors house where he
staid all night. Yesterday he came to
the city and Judge Bross issued a war
rant for the arrest ot young Pillow, w ho
will be brought to town for trial.
