The quarantine of Teton county
against diseased sheep is a good
thing, and it is to be hoped that it
is not already too late. The dis
ease is approaching perillously near
our boundries and every means
should be taken to avoid its further
encroachment. It is to the inter
est of private individuals as well as
public officers to do their utmost to
keep out a disease the spread of
which must impoverish not only
the sheepmen, but nearly every
individual in the county.

with friends and neighbors.
Thos. McGovern, of Robare, was
up before Judge Magee on Satur
day ou a charge of selling whisky
by retail without a license. Mr.
McGovern has a wholesale license
and claimed that he did cot sell by
retail. County Attorney Sulgrove
was present to prosecute and
Treasurer Bristol to testify as to
the license, Several witnesses
were examined that had been at
McGovern's place on Feb. 4th. It
appeared to be difficult to deter
mine whether the whisky sold on
that occasion were by wholesale or
retail. At any rate the judge con
cluded the evidence damaging
enough to fine the defendant five
dollars and costs, in all amounting
to $33.50, which was paid.

of money was not large enough to

that the checks were paid him in a
business deal by W. E. Hodgskiss,
assessor of Teton county, and a
well known resident of Choteau.
He had no trouble in having them
cashed. One of the checks for $18
was cashed by Milt* Henderson,
and two, aggregating $19, were
cashed at the Fashion saloon.
Scullen was jailed last nignt on a
chargeof drnnkenness, and this
morning it developed that he had
forged Hodgskiss' name to the
checks. He had written the name
