THE COUNTY (Continued from page 6.) valuable apostle of this state in his Iowa home. The shearing crew on Sage creek completed its work Monday, and after a day or two spent in Stanford, the shearers all departed! for other places. With the completion of the work at Sage creek, the last of the shearing for the season of 1909 was finished. The year has been a profitable one for flockmasters, and in addition to ■good prices, the clip has averaged better than was anticipated'. The in cessant rains of the season washed out the fleece to some extent, and while it lightened the weight, and proved a big thing for the buyers, yet all woolgrowers, so far as known, are pleased with the returns. About 300,000 pounds of wool was shipped' from Stanford. James A. Weaver and A. C. Ed wards have been appointed' appraisers of the Thomas Geer estate, and to day are taking an inventory. A baseball game between Windham and Benchland was played on Sun day at the former place, several from this city taking in the exhibition, which was reported enjoyable, if not of the league class. The game went to Windham. Gilbert O. Ecker, who has a home stead and desert land entry "in town ship 18-11, on Sunday departed for his old home near Walcott, N. D. He has there a first class threshing outfit, which he will use in the Da kotas for a short period, when he will cause it to be shipped to Mon tana and will at once place it in oper ation near Stanford. LITTLE ROCKIES MINES. One of Biggest Gold Producing Regions in World Being Developed. Great Falls Tribune: Allen Pierse, who returned yesterday from a trip to the Little Rockies, states that many properties are being developed in that district, which promises to become one of the biggest gold pro ducing regions in the country. The August Mining company is working about 40 men and is taking out 10 tons of high grade ore every day. The ore is run through the company's new cyanide mill at Lan •dusky, which is located about two miles from the mine. The company has recently added three new 100 ton redwood cyanide tanks to its mill so that there is now room in the mill to treat 1,080 tons or ore at the same time. The operation of the mill has been most satisfactory and it is un derstood that a very high percentage of the high grade ore being treated is being used. The lead in the August mine and its extensions is declared by all mi* ing men to be marvelous, and there appears to be every reason for be lieving that it will prove to be one of the greatest bodies of gold ore ever discovered in this or any other country. It varies in width from four feet to 12 feet, and 1 the lead con tains ore that can all be worked in the cyanide mill. Mr. Pierse states that the old town of Landusky has taken on new life since the mill was put in operation. A considerable number of men and team3 are employed in hauling wood and ore to the mill, and there is a good-sized force of men at work in the mill. Development work is being pushed on several other properties, and there is a great deal of mining activity found all through the Little Rockies. WILSON STILL HIDING OUT. Man Who Thought He Killed Tom Geer Remains in Seclusion. Stanford World: On Saturday evening, July 10th, Thomas Geer died very suddenly at his home in Wind ham, after an altercation with one Wilson, but, as the evidence heard by the coroner's jury on the follow ing day plainly demonstrated, Wil son was in no way responsible for the death. However, Wilson flew the coop, and to the best of the World's knowledge he is still on the hike, all of which seems more than passing strange. On the day of the inquest it was the supposition of those in Windham that he was suffering from a temporary attack of cold feet and would return. But when Wilson picked up ihis bridle and went, pre sumably, to look for his ihorse3, he seems to have left all communication broken, and is probably yet in hid ing, perhaps feeling that he is suc cessfully eluding the sheriff's force. He had a (homestead near Windham, and in the cabin were his things, which to date have not been dis turbed. That Wilson possibly could have suffered an accident and suc cumbed i3 now the evplanation given of his continued absence by many. He was a man said to be of a timid nature and was not given to the way of the 'rough house" artists. It is possible the whereabouts of Wilson will forever remain a secret. and that of his own volition, he has gone to join the celebrated Charley Ross in his mysterious abode, and when Fergus county people refer to things unknown, they may substitute "Where is Wilson?'' for "Who struck Billy Patterson?" and thus utilize a home talent in the art of disappear ing. But such feeble-minded actions only serve to show how idle it is for one to attempt to get away because uspicion points in his direction. Poor Wilson is probably now hiding in the mountans or quit the state in fear, feeling that he has outwitted the of ficers, when as a matter of fact, did justice to any one but Wilson him self demand it, Sheriff Martin and his force of assistants could land'*the gentleman in limbo so quick it would take his breath away. Poor Wilson! Ask to see our combined check pro tector and letter opener. It is the most up-to-date office novelty yet of fered. Democrat Supply Depart ment. Legal Notices. Alias Sumons.
