The Fargo Argas clears up the mystery. The business men of Yankton and all lovers of a good time should read the an nouncement made by the Turnverein socle tf of their Tbanksgiving ball and then should invest in tickets and go and have a good time, besides aiding in tbe constiuc tian of the new opera house. Remember the poor jurymen on Thanks giving day. They will be locked up in the top story of the Mercaants hotel with no turkey, no egg-nog, no chance to contribute to the aid of the impecunious, no nothing .. but solitary confinement and a grim sentinel at the door as a constant reminder of their incarceration. R. W. Barns has placed thia establish ment under obligations by contributing a Thanksgiving turkey, accompanied by oys ters and his compliments. Burns is not a turkey raiser by profession, neither does he grow oysters in his garden patch, bat he is alw^ya trying to study up some scheme for making hia friends foel happy.

Over a week after I returned to the place of the murder, and searched for clothing and found the quilt, a coat, boots, hat, cap, and a broken gun stock the quilt waa found under a log near the bank of the creek. [Here the articles, which were brought down from the ac$ne of .the murder, vfere chown to witness, and identified as the onea he found.] I brought back the gun stock and other articles to tbe agency, and brought them down here.
