PARK COUNTY RANCHER LOST IN
SUSPICIONS OF FOUL PLAY
Trouble Between Neighbors—Reeder
Has Been Missing for Three Weeks,
Leaving Ail His Property Behind—
Threats That He Would Come to
Grief—Kept Up His End of a Quarrel
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Livingston, May 9.—The sheriff's office
has just received word of the mysterious
disappearance of George Reeder, a
rancher of Trail creek. Reeder has not
been seen for three weeks. About that
time he left his cabin with his dog and
started out hunting. He never returned,
; and the ranchers in the vicinity suspect
I that all is not wel with the man.
I Ugly stories are afloat concerning the
disappearance of Reeder. It is said that
j he and Caspar Zheltmeir, a neighbor,
! have been heard to utter dire threats
j against each other, and open stories of
I suspected foul play are heard,
j On the 25th of March Zheitrneir had
j Reeder brought to this at y and tried on
I a charge of assault. The trouble in this
! instance was brought about by Zheit
I meir killing Reeder's hunting dog. Reed
: er thereupon proceeded to pummel
! Zheitmedr to some etent. Since that
time the latter has sworn to get even.
Under Sheriff Hector McDonald has
left for Trail creek. He will make a
thorough investigation of the affair, and
will do his utmost to reveal the where
abouts of tlie missing man. It is not
thought probable that Reeder would
leave his cabin and all his belongings,
not intending to return, and it is almost
certain that something has ihapened to
him, although just what is hard to de

THE MILES BLOCK,
THE NEW THORNTON HOTEL
Its 104 Rooms Magnificently Furnish
ed—The Most Expensive Carpets
That Are Made.
When the new Thornton throws open
its doors for patronage on Monday, it
will not only be one of the finest hotels
in the west, as to arrangement and con
venience, but it will unquestionably be
the best furnished hotel between St. Paul
and the Pacifie coast. The entire house,
with the exception of the bar, has been
furnished by the Kennedy Furniture Co.,
The competition to furnish these 101
rooms, including lobby, and bedrooms,
was not confined to Butte, where the
dealers were eager for the business as
much for the prestige as for the profit,
but the large eastern houses "had a
whack at it," including John Wana
maker. The result of that competition,
really national in its character, ought to
make Harry Kennedy, manager of the
Kennedy Furniture Co., feel a good bit of
Ail the furniture is fresh from the fac
tories, made on the latest and most popu
lar patterns: and, by the same token,
comfort has been the goal aimed at in
all the designs. The prevailing wood
throughout, is golden quarter-sawed oak.
All the chairs and rockers are roomy; an 1
they are all rubber tipped, reducing wear
and tear, and preventing noise. There
are four brass bedsteads and nearly all
the others are artistic iron bedsteads of
the most expensive character. Every
mattress is the best hair, resting on the
best box springs, all the finest that money
can buy. In two or three rooms, there
are golden, quarter-sawed oak folding
The fine bridal suite has a mag
nificent solid mahogany hand-carved set.
It is the Napoleon pattern. The pieces are
bedstead, dresser, ehif'onier, toilet table,
two center tables, and chairs, all to
match. The furnishings of this roam as,
indeed, that of all the other rooms, re
flect great credit on the taste of those
selecting them, and the richness and su
perior make and finish are a just cause
of pride to the Kennedy Furniture Co.
The reception loom, halls and stairways
have the very best of Lowell Wilton
carpets, also furnished by the Kennedy
Furniture Co. The elegance of carpets
may be imagined from the fact that the
wholesale cost of them is $2 85 per yard.
In addition to furnishing the Thornton,
the Kennedy Furniture Co., has been
supplying new furniture, from time to
time, for the past several months to the
Butte hotel, replacing the old. Six of the
best leather coaches made, were recently
supplied, and the best of beds have also
been furnished. The latest order from
the Butte, is 1,500 yards of the best Im
perial and Bigelow Axmtnister and Wil
ton carpets for the halls and front rooms.
These large orders, so readily filled by
the Kennedy Furniture Co., in competi-i
tion with live, keen competitors, bear a
recommendation in themselves higher
than any words of this paper could give.
It means that when it comes to furni
ture and carpets, Butte is as cheap a
market as there is in the United States,
that is, as far as the Kennedy Furniturei
Po., is concerned. . And the best goods
made are on sale there all the time.
