KILLED IN AN
DR. S. S. OWEN, OF M0(3RE, WIDE
LY KNOWN PHYSICIAN, MEETS
WITH TRAGIC DEATH.
CAR GOES OVER A STEEP CLIFF
Dr. Sheridan S. Owen of Moore, one
of the best known medical men of the
county, was fatally injured late yester
day afternoon when hia auto went
over what is known as the Smith cliff,
a short distance from the Smith ranch,
falling some 125 feet to the slough at
the edge of the Judith river. The acci
dent was witnessed by Mr. Smith and
Mrs. Zoe Capron. who waded the river
immediately. The auto had turned
completely over three times on its way
to the bottom and Dr. Owen was clear
of the car when found, but the back of
his head had struck a boulder, frac
turing his skull. The accident oc
curred about 5 o'clock and by 6:30
they had succeeded in getting the un
conscious man into a wagon and get
ting out on the road, when Dr. Por
ter of Moore joined them. Dr. Owen
died just before the party reached
Moore.
How It Occurred.
Dr. Owen had gone to the Judith
ranch, on tho Judith, in the morning,
to attend the foreman who was suf
fering from a very serious affection
of the throat, and had advised Mrs.
Capron to be there. He met her at
Ross Fork, went on to the ranch and
they found the man considerably im
proved. At Ross Fork the doctor re
ceived a call to go to the Smith ranch
to attend a child and on the return
they went to that place. To reach it
they had to run along a sidling piece
of road near the cliff, but negotiated
it without the least trouble. Mrs.
Capron decided to remain at the
ranch and drive to the station. Dr.
Owen started off on his return trip
to Moore and when on the piece of
road, at the edge of the cliff, Mrs.
Capron and the Smiths noticed that
the oar was standing still. Just what
was the reason for this is a matter
for conjecture, but tt seems that the
car had started back a little and
struck a boulder. This may have
j caused it to swerve over the edge of
the cliff. At this time that seems to
be the most reasonable explanation of
the accident.
Was Widely Known.
Dr. Owen had resided at Moore over
thirteen years, having been engaged
all the time in the practice of his pro
fession which took him over a consid
erable part of the county and gave
him an extended acquaintance. He
is survived by a widow and two chil
dren, three sisters, Mrs. Terry and Mrs.
Robinson of Moore, and Mrs. Boyles
of Coffee Creek; three brothers, W. J.
Owen, of Gilt Edge; Frank Owen, of
Geraldine, and Elmer Owen, of Bench
land. J. E. Owen, manager of the Basin
Lumber company here, was his
nephew. The decedent was close to
50 years of age. fie was a man of
high character anil a leader in all
movements for the general good of
his community. His loss will be great
ly deplored by all who knew him.
Arrangements for the funeral will he
announced later.
FUNERAL OF DR. OWEN.
The funeral of the late Dr. S. S.
Owen, of Moore, was held from the
Christian church at that place yester
day afternoon and was attended by
a great concourse of sorrowing rela
tives and friends. A large number
went down from Lewistown to pay
the final tribute of respect and the
Odd Fellows, to which order the de
cedent belonged, were represented by
a delegation.

At a meeting of the Fergus county

mittee consisting of Trustees MeOlave,

pointed to Interview business men of
the elty with an objeet of Interesting
them in the construction of a dormi
tory for rental to the high school.
Applications are already coming in
from outside the city for suitable
boarding places for students this win
ter and the board finds upon Inquiry
that desirable locations are very few.
It is necessary that some sort of pro
vision be made for the boys and girls
from out of town, und since the county
at large does not favor the issue of
bonds for a dormitory the board feels
that the next best thing is to induce
a number of business men to erect
such a building for an investment upon
which they will give the school a five
year luase with an option of purchase,
and charge a percentage of the cost
ss rental. If desirable arrangements
are made, such a structure should be
completed by the first of tho year, and
In the meantime temporary provision
will be made for the Incoming stu
dents.
At the meeting Thursday the board
engaged the services of Miss Con
stance Darrnw as clerk to Principal
