As Mrs. George N. Campbell was en
gaged in her household duties yesterday
afternoon a bullet came tearing through
the window and missed her head by but
a few inches. There are several circum
stances that tend to prove that the shot
was deliberately fired at the house acd
the,sheriff will be called upon to inves
tigate. There has been a great deal too
much promiscuous shooting in this
vicinity recently and many complaints
on that account. When eome injnred
citizen ga thers the courage to make a
formal charge, the law will be enforced.
Wm. 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
J.H.Boucher deputy game warden has

found the Indians camped on Belly

of them afoot who immediately took to
the timber and made for the British

afoot to within a half mile of the camp

to permit you to do so, but I will corres

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

O rd A. A ynslfy,
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.
