The coroner's inquest summoned to investigate the circumstances at tending the death of a human be ing whose IkxIv was found near tie fork of the road, a!out three miles southerly from the ranch on the Sandy, known as the "Wind mill," were unable to determine the cause of his death or the date of its occurrence. The Inxly had evidently been buried in great haste and in a very shallow grave. An old-fashioned pocket liook was found near the grave in which were . papers show ing that deceased had applied for naturalization papers in the district court of the ninth judicial district of the state of Montana, county of Gallatin, on the 29th day of May, 1893.

From monthly reports coming from the different school districts, it appears tliat about 45 cr cent of the children enumerated in the last school census rejorts, for some reason, are not taking advantage of trying to get a public school education. This is not as it should be. . Par ents are standing in their own light when they neglect this important matter, when education in nq niirn atfd tfuTTucTfi trrr-'n7uch better than when some of the older gener ations had to walk from two to four miles every day ajid sit on the flat side of a rail in the "Old Log School House" and many of those same people . who labored under those disadvantages are now among the brightest jeople of the times.. . . A little sacrifice on the part of parents, while their children are of school age, will not he regretted in alter years. There is a compulsory school law on the statute books which will be put into oK?ration in the near fu ture, if it is found to be necessary. This law does not apply to parents who absolutely need the services of their children to help sustain the family, or who through sickness or poverty are unable to send their boys and girls to school, but it does apply to those who are able and re fuse or- neglect -the - opportunity. This does not apply to any one dis trict,, but all, alike. , ... . . : .. N. G.-Layton, County Superintendent.
