Downs, who had for j some time been employed on the Ar ' chie Rogers ranch on Alaska Dench. I died at the hospital in this city Wed nesday. brain fever being the cause of death. The decedent was a wid ower. and had resided in this section about two and a half years. He left one child, about two years of age, and was looked after in his last ill ness by his half brother, Mr. Sting ley, the well known rancher. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon from Creel's undertaking parlors, Rev. Henry Quiekenden, of the First Pres byterian church, officiating. A telegram received here a few days ago announced that Mrs. Mary I A. Sloane, a well known Lewlstown lady, had met with an accident at Rochester, New York, while she was on her way to her old home in that state for a visit. It appears that while on the 'car platform, she slipped in some way and fell to the ground. The first telegram received did not give a very definite statement as to the extent of her Injuries, and her daugh ters, Mrs. J. D. Waite and Mrs. Frank E. Wright, left the following morning for Rochester. At Lombard another telegram was received by them stat ing that Mrs. Sloane's injuries consist ed of a broken rib, a sprained wrist and some minor bruises. With this assurance that her condition was in no wise serious, Mrs Waite returned to this city, while Mrs. Wright con tinued her journey to Rochester. Mr. Wright yesterday received a message from Rochester, stating that the pa tient was getting along all right, her injuries not being considered at all serious.

The Great Falls Tribune's recent in teresting and generally accurate ac count of the history of rhe Yogo sap phire fields contains one error that it is worth while to correct. The article credits the discovery of the sapphires to John Ettlen while herding sheep in the vicinity of what is now Yogo. As a matter of fact, the sapphires were discovered by Mr. Jacob Hoover a year or two before Mr. Ettlen made his find. Mr. Hoover was given a grub stake bv s. g. Hobson, and was prospecting for gold along Yogo creek. In panning for gold at a point on the creek where the middle fork roau crosses, he found the first sapphires, which had doubtless been washed down by the creek from the dyke where they are now being mined. The exact nature of the stones was at that time unknown, and Mr. Hobson took them to a lapidary at Helena for ex amination. The expert at once pro nounced them oriental sapphires, and afterwards they were traced back to the famous dyke which is now tinning mft the finest sapphires in the world. Worsted sweaters regular. $2.50, sale price. $1.25. Lehman's. Miss Theo. Dougherty, the accom plished stenographer- and typist for Hilger and Busenburg, has gone to Helena to spend a couple of weeks with her mother. In the meantime Uncle Dave is getting out a tetter every day, if all goes well, for he is not as good a shot with the Reming ton typewriter as he is with the Rem ! ! ! ! 1 j ■ ! I j 1 I I - j , j ' ! I . ' i I I ! I ington rifle, and he finds that the let ters on the keyboard have a strange trick of changing places or even dis appearing altogether for a time. The absent-minded professor continues to sing out "Theo" at stated intervals and the whole routine of the office has suffered an uncountable number of comminuted fractures In the reg ion of the Bpinal column. If. this should meet the eye of Miss Theo while she is queening it down in Hel ena, both Uncle Dave and the profes sor hope she will know just what to do without asking for any humiliat ing specifications from them. They are advised that the train still leaves Helena for Lewistown at 12 o'clock each night. ADVERTISED LETTERS. Unclaimed Letters Remaining In the Poatoffice at Lewlstown, Mont., Oec. 27, 1906.
