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!
