Murphy Bros, lost a valuable work
horse Monday. It had been running
with a bunch on one of the Murphy's
farms east of town, and in rounding
the animals up Sunday this horse was
missing. The fact was reported to
the stable in Judith Gap Monday
morning, and it was presumed that
the animal had been stolen. When
Frank arrived in town Monday even
ing lie was convinced that the horse
had fallen in the well. He immed
iately left for the farm and on arriv
ing there fouud his surmises to be
correct. The horse went down head
first, presumably Sunday night, lint
was alive when Frank reached the
well. He gathered together about a
dozen neighbors and succeeded in
pulling the animal out of the well,
but the horse died a few minutes lat
er. There was no water in the well.
The horse was valued at $225.

the same if the club would pay for
the lights and janitor work, amount
ing to about $1 a night. Mr. Hanson
was given a vote of thanks for his
liberality. It was decided to give
some entertainments in the way ol'
dauces and dollar dinners for the ben
etit of the club. The executive com
mittee was instructed to go ahead
raising funds for the forthcoming cel
ebration in September, and the out
look is good for one of the biggest
events ever pulled off in central Mon
tana. As the 15th of September this
year comes on Sunday, the celebra
tion will be held on the 18th and 14th.
The club meetings will be held often
er after this, now that there is a cen
tral place for holding the meetings,
aud it is hoped that when the mem
bers get a notification that there will
be a meeting they will arrange to at
tend. There is going to be a whole
°t doing this summer, and it will be
necessary lor every man interested in
the growth of the town |to put his
shoulder to the wheel aud help booBt
tilings along.

The republican national convention
met ii#'('lff'cago last Tuesday, thedele
gates seated fradulently by 1 lie nation
al e&mniittee making up the majority
wlu^h elected Mr. Boot temporary
chairman. The vote on the cliair
mairsliin was 558 to 502. The latter
vote is supposed to represent the
Boosevelt strength as the convention
is now constituted.
Wednesday, the committee on cre
dentials were appointed, and if it
takes up all the important contests
and hears evidence it will be"
at least three days before it will be
ready to report. If the com
mittee does not hear testimony and
railroads the fraudulent delegates
through, there will be two nominees
of the convention for the presidency.
Boosevelt lias a clear majority of
honestly elected delegates. Taft lias
the machinery of the party and lias it
well enough greased to unseat honest
ly elected delegates and seat fraudu
lently elected ones in their stead.
That is the situation.
*The sober, sound judgment of the
majority may prevail and nominate a
dArk horsef possibly Cummins of
ljxta or Beverage of Indiana. The
ftje)r)tg, however, is so strong between
Boosevelt delegates,
