Gray, the well known Highwood sheepman, is a rather irascible old gent leman and about 10 days ago one of his saddle horses, a gentle old cayuse, wise beyond his years and hardened in iniquity, absolutely declined to enter a corral for any elderly Scotchman, par ticularly when his pursuer was on foot Mr. Gray got his trusty shotgun and fired four loads of No. 7 shot into the buzzard head, costs for cruelty to ani mals. Mr. Gray triumphantly observed, however, that the crowbait now makes a run for the corral the moment some one opens the gate and yells at him.—Great Falls Tribune. J.H.Boucher deputy game warden has just returned to Blackfoot after a ten ; day trip to Belly river investigating re ports of Stoney Indians depleting the country of game in that vicinity. Ile found the Indians camped on Belly river about two miles north of the Inter national boundary line. He saw three of them afoot who immediately took to the timber and made for the British side.

He went to Cardston to interview Inspector W. H. Erwin of the Northwest Mounted Police about taking prisoners arrested in United Statès ter l'itory. through Canadian territory back to the United States. Mr. Erwin re plied. "At present it would be impossible to permit you to do so, but I will corres pond with aiy superiors and see what cau be done and let you know." The deputy seeing it was impossible to do any thing at present as prisoners can be got out only through Canadian territory at this season, and by only two trails in summer, one across a spur of Chief mountain on the west and the other over the main range iuto Flathead county via head of Bell} - river, he report ed these facts to his chief and immediate , ly 3 " ught other fields to operate in which P 10,mse( ^ botter results.

O rd A. A ynslfy, Collins, Mont Mr«. Nannie McLain, at Rest. ! The community was shocked last Sun day morning upon learning of the death of Mrs. Nannie McLairi, wife of Thomas McLain, of this place. It had been re ported for a few days that she was not well, bat no danger %vas apprehended until Saturday, when Dr. Wine was sent for. Her physician found her suffering from terrible pains in the head atd did all in his power to relieve them. He was called again during the early hours of Sunday morning but found his patient unable to respond to treatment and in spite of all that could be done she breathed her last within twenty minutes after his coming. Her death was prob ably caused by the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain during a violent period of pain, as she maintained her faC ulties to the last and displayed no other symptoms of disease. Mrs. McLain, was an earnest Christian, a dutiful wife and a loving mother, was beloved by all and will be long remembered as a true wo man, bearing her burdens patientlv and making her little world better by her presence. Her husband, lonely but for the presence of five young children who are hardly old erough to appreciate their loss, has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in his sad bereave ment. Funeral services were held at the late residence of the deceased and the last sad rites were performed at the Dupuyer cemetery, Monday afternoon. The Schiey Inquiry. Washington, Nov. 18.—According to information which has reached the navy department through channels in a meas ure controlled by the department, the verdict of the Schley court of inquiry will practically be a complete vindica tion of Admiral Schley. Moreover, instead of a long discursive opinion covering all the complex' details of the inquiry, the court will hand down a brief and terse verdict which it is .said will uot contain more than 500 words The three admirals comprising court decided upon this form of verd very soon after they began their session. Appreciating the desire of the public, and everybody concerned,for a verdict that would be neither long nor involved they agreed at tne outset th^t they would be exceedingly sparing of words. Admirials Dewey, Beuhatu and Ram sey, who co n pi if e the court, have worlc ed industriously. They have devoted ; long hours to the task of arranging the evidenc? so as to arrive at an intelligent understanding of its application to the charges preferred against Admiral Schley in the precept. It is known they have made progress and will bo ready within a comparative ly short time to present t leir findings to the secretary of the navy. ■dint School Notes.. of The following pupils 011 account sickness have been about the whole or part of the last two weeks.
