Dr. C. F. Mussigbrod celebrated his 73d birthday Jan. 6. "Many happy returns." Mr. P. Patterson, contractor and builder, left for Portland, Oregon, a few days ago, and it is reported will not return alone. Mr. Will Bennett, who has been detained almost continuously in Butte the past month, is home again. He says the street cars have never missed a trip from snow this winter. Mcrgan Evans, Anaconda, John W. Wil son, Lost Creek, Jno. R. Eardley, Willow Glen, and C. K. Hardenbrook, Race Track, were Upper Valley visitors in town this week. Mr. John Easterling, a California pioneer whose home was in Marysville and later in Virginia City, Nev., came down from the north on Wednesday's train and is now lyitg ill at the Deseret Hospital.

Penrose, wife of the foreman of the Granite Mountain mine, has the past few days been, with her little daughter, visiting her friend and schoolmate Mrs. Wm. Hyde. Mrs. Penrose is the grand daughter of Mr. John A. Davey, Esq., Member of the English Parliament and one of the greatest mining engineers of Cornwall, Eng. Mrs. P. will be left a large inheritance by her mother. She expects to leave in April for her old home in England, and Mrs. Hyde expects to accom pany her. Mr. Wm. P. l ohnson, Manager of the Paper and Job Department of the Pioneer Press, St. Paul, which now does a very heavy business with the newspapers of tAe Northwest, was in town last Sunday. He is a first-class business man, and his kindness in securing us the most advantageous indoor seats at the Press office last winter to witness the great Carnival Parade, will be rememberedigrate'. fully by the better and worser half long after the earth has passed away. Mr. J. left for the West Sunday night. Mr. Ben. Franklin, the pioneer and pat riarch of Gospel Mountain, celebrated his 52d birthday Wednesday, and over a social cigar we learned he has been mining 30 years. He helped lay out the townsite of Denver, and mined in Colorado, New Mex ico, Arizona, California and Nevada. Twelve years ago he prospected Gospel Mountain, stuck bhis stakes, and has lived there ever since, a great portion of the time alone, but with a faith that never wavered through evil or throngb good report be has kept at work developing and representing his own property and that of others, satisfied that one day, before St. Peter called him, Gospel Mountain would be developed and repay him. Thling are breaking that way nuw, and Ben Franklin cannot fare too well in the deal to suit anybody in Deer Lodge. FREE TRADB.

Governor Leslie has pardoned out of the penitentiary a Crow Indian, sentenced for stealing cattle in Yellowstone county. As usual, no reason for the pardon is given. The ladies of the Christian Church will give a candy pulling and social at the Christ ian Church Tuesday evening, January 17th. Candy served from 6 to 8 o'clock. All are cordially invited. 966 It Mrs. Curn has bought the City Hotel, and will take possession Jan. 20th. We under stand Mr. E. P. Mills will remove to "the Blum house," on Second street, recently vacated by Mr. Smurr. A stove set in the hallway of Van Gundy & Miller's new building, to enable plaster ing, communicated fire to the wall Thursday moaning, and had quite a good start when dsscovered. It was promptly extinguished. Miners and visitors from Gospel Mountain report the weather there during the recent cold snap was not so severe by many degrees as it was in the valley. This is usually the case-the valleys being colder than the mountains. The elegant badge presented to Warden McTague last week was manufactured by Hight & Fairfield, the skilled jewelers of Butte. Until otherwise informed, we had supposed from the workmanship it had been manufactured in the East. A Chinaman was arrested this week for stealing wood from Postmaster Carlton, tried before Justice Hartwell, and sentenced to thirty days in jail. Yesterday Under Sheriff Hatton heard him remark: "White man stealie wood, all right. Chinaman stealie wood, G - D - what's a matter." Last Monday night Peter Hanson, Night Watchman, arrested a man wandering about town and apparently insane. He was exam ined before Probate Judge Emerson and a jury, on Wednesday, and sent to the asylum. The poor fellow had forgotten his name, and could not possibly recall it. The case seemed a very pitiful one. Mr. A. C. Leger, of Warm Springs creek, who has been a resident of Montana for the past twenty-one years, and accumulated a handsome competence, sold his farm of 320 acres on the creek a few days ago to Mr. Daniel James, and has gone to California to look up a location in that sunny clime. We wish him prosperity and happiness. The little child of Mr. and Mrs. Menard, which died Tuesday, had been ill for some days before it was known the disease was scarlet fever, and died in two or three days after. It seems to have been a sporadic case, as it had not been in contact with the dis ease, and no cases have preceded it here for a long time. The other children of the fam ily are in good health. It will be to the interest of every intelli gent buyer to make purchases from our stock now. We have marked goods down regard less of cost, as we are anxious to get rid of surplus wares before making improvements in the spring. We want to open the new store with an entirely new stock of merchan dise. A. KLEINSCHMIDT & CO., 963 tf (Limited). A statement has been going the rounds of the Territorial papers that Henry Edmund son, one of the notorious "Edmundson horse thief gang," now undergoing sentence in the penitentiary for a long term, had been sent to the insane asylum. There is absolutely no foundation for the report. The genial gentleman who loved horses "not wisely but too well," is still holding out at the old stand. We are in receipt of acommunication from one of the inmates of the United States Prison thanking-the officers of the prison for their kindness to those incarcerated therein. The expression is doubtless sincere and deserved, but the writer occupies four pages of legal cap in saying what could bet ter have been put in ten lines. Cerrespond ents should study conciseness in writing to find favor in the eyes of the printer. Mail from the east, delivered to us Wed nesday, indicated it had been in a railroad wreck, where the mail car was probably on fire. Aside from being crushed to shapeless ness, it was considerably burned-conditions indicating as above. With the number of wrecks occurring these days, the wonder is that anything gets thrcugh without looking like that Garrison hotel safe John O'Neill keeps exposed on his sidelralk to aggravate Will. Bennett. A snap of cold weather severe enough to satisfy the most exacting has just visited this valley. On Friday last the weather turned very cold, and Friday night the thermometer ran down to 44 to 46 deg. below zero without as much as saying "beg your pardon." Sat urda.v was bitter cold, with considerable wind blowing and every indication of a still colder night, but the thermometers Saturday morning did not show any considerable dif ference from the night before, and the weather then moderated. We have not beard of any casualties nor of any one being even severely frost bitten, but the weather is not to be credited that such was not the case. It was by odds the severest cold of the sea son. An item, originating we believe in the Miner, has been going the rounds of the Montana press recently that the Star of Bethlehem, which i due to arrive one of these years if not obstructed by a break or blockade on the road, is now visible about 3 or 4 o'clock a m. in the southeast sky. We have not noticed any other mention of its arrival, and do not propose to get up at such an unseasonable hour to "see stars" until the weather moderates, unless the said star is vouched for as being branded with the origi nal trade mark, and certified by the signa tures of "the wise men of the east." We rather think the Miner editor is giving the boys one for funa. MILLINERY AT COST. Positively to Close Out the Business.

Another Preminent Group of Mi3es ' e D .r Ledge to be.rii.ped. A postponed meeting of the owners of the Champion, Lily, May and Augsta mianing claims, with a large number of those inter ested in the incorporation, assembled at Firemen's Hall Tuesday evening, with Dr. A. H. Mitchell in the chair and Mr. H. H. Zenor as secretary,to consolidate the several claims and incorporate as a mining coem pany. As a result the four elaims, owned as we, stated last week, were put in on an equal basis, under the title of the "Champion Con solidated Mining Company." The stock is divided into 800,000 shares of a par value of $2 each-one-third to go to the stock owners, one-third put on the market at once, (one sixth to subscribers with an equal option,) and one-third to be held as treasury stock. Of- the subseription stock, of which there were 133,333 shares with an option, 114,000 shares had been subscribed for before the organisation took place, and the remaining 19,000 shares were taken the moment the opportunity was offered to those present Twenty per cent. of the subscriptions were made payable Jan. 11th and balance on de livery of stock. The trustees elected were: E. P. Mills, Dr. C. G. Glass, Dr. A. H. Mitchell, Wm. Facer, C. D. Joslyn, James B. McMaster and W. N. Aylesworth. The election of officers by the trustees resulted-President, A. H. Mitchell; Vice President, Wilber N. Aylesworth; See retary, E. P. Mills; Treasurer, S. E. Larabie, and James B. McMaster General Manager. The incorporation papers were prepared yesterday. [Mr. Larabie could notact.-ED.] The Champion Consolidated is a,gy.qup e mines situated on Gospel Mountain, aboeut s. half mile southeast of the Mountain Lion. The Champion, Lily and Augusta are appar ently continuous locations on the samd lead, giving a linear stretch of 4,500 feet thereon, and the May laps on the Lily and Augusta and butts up on the Champion. Itwas there fore deemed best to include all in the one incorporation. By the late owners and oth ers we are informed the Lily has on it a 26 footshaft, showing four feet of free-milling silver ore; the Champion has a 40 foot shaft and 63 feet of cross-cut, showing seven feet of ore in the shaft that assays from a few ounces up to 1400 ozs. per ton; the May has a 42-foot shaft, showing an ore vein of from 20 inches to 6 feet from the grass roots to the bottom of the 42-foot shaft, with assays rang ing from 60 ozs. up to 8500 in gold and silver. The Augusta has an 80 foot tunnel, and it is stated shows a body of pay ore from four to seven feet wide. These have for some time been considered very fevorably among the prospects of Oro Fino district, but like all the mines there, were not backed by suffl cient capital to secure their development It is the intention of the company now to pro. ceed thereto as soon as possible. Mr. Mc Master and Mr. Ed. Mills went up yesterday to look into the situation, and at as early a day as possible a hoist and pump will be put on and work prosecuted vigorously.

A BAD BREAK. E. H. Stanton Escapes from Jail in Severe Weather and is Recaptured. E. H. Stanton, who is in prison in default of $2,000 bail for grand larceny and $1,500 for perjury in the Anaconda robbery case, which has been mentioned frequently in the past few months, had a rough experience last week. He has claimed all along that he would be able to give the bonds to secure his release, and made out a pitiful case to Sheriff Coleman that the tobaco smokeof the other prisoners in the cage made him very sick. His persistence in this story led the Sheriff finally, out of compassion for him, to permit Stanton to sit in the kitchen at times where he would not be reached by the tobacco smoke, although it was a nuisance and an inconvenient burden on the officers to have him in the kitchen. He, however, illy re quited the favor done him, or else was "pos suming" about the smoke racket, for on the evening of Jan. 3d, when the jailor ran up stairs for a moment, just before locking up for the night, Stanton, who had fixed for the occasion with his overshoes on, quickly slipped out of the kitchen and escaped. This was about 7:30 p. m. Tuesday, one of the most furious and gusty snowdrinving nights of the winter. The officers were after him as quickly as possible, and traced him some distance up the river, but lost the trail. Stanton, however, traveled all night, and next day reached a ranch near Stuart, where he stayed two days. Meantime Sheriff Cole man had the country covered, so if he had even reached his objective point, he would have been captured. But his whereabouts having meantime become known, and that he had left afoot for Silver Bow, Deputy Sheriff Harnon, of Anaconda, was tele. graphed to look up his hiding place and then follow him. Harnon was quickly on the trail, found the bird had hopped off that morning, traced him to Silver Bow, and took him in soon after he had got to a saloon there-evidently having feared to take the cars in Deer Lodge valley, and waiting for a train to Pocatello from a point where he was not so well known. He was turned into his old quarters again Friday, and will have to endure tobacco smoke until next term of court, or the requisite bail is forthcoming. He was out in one of the worst days and nights of the winter. His cheeks and feet were frosted and one knee injured by falling off a bank. It is a wonder he did not freeze to death. - .. .--- -.1 .... FEED. Fresh Ground Feed in large or small quan tities, now in stock at 961 tf BENNETT BROS.' Done Up in Style. Some Helena folks got taken in very read ily last week by a glib-tongued sharper named Simon Hamburg, formerly a seller of hot sausages on the streets of Butte, but who has recently developed as a capitalist and land owner in California, and returned to Montana to give away lots in a place he called Border City, Cal.-well, not just to give them away, but to charge only $3 a lot for them, which barely covered the expense of making the deed and having it recorded in California-a little matter which he would attend to, you know. Nobody knew him; he paid for those infernal swindles known as "Reading Matter Notices" in the news. papers, talked slick, and raked in the money for lots. He was getting on swimmingly when an order for his arrest came from Cali fornia, he having Just been indicted there for swindling and obtaining money under false pretenses in trading San Francisco property which he didn't own to an Oregon farmer for his estate worth $6,500, beside 5500 in money and a sight draft for $2,500. Mr. Simon Hamburg, or Humbug, confessed to an Independent reportor that Border City was laid out in the sand desert in Lower Califor nia, which be alleges he bought for 5 cents an acre, and valued at $3 a lot, realizes him 54,800 per acre. He was taken to Butte by City Marshal Reed, of Helena, where he was recognized by officers Lou. P. Smith and Elias Lytle as the sausage man, and on re ceipt of the proper papers taken to Califor nia. He is one of the most unconscionable scoundrels unhung. How Helenians, or any other people, would allow such a transparent fraud to pick them up for $3 apiece is beyond all reason. It is an axiom well to observe that whenever a man or firm pretends to sell goods for less than they are worth in open market, he has secured them by unfair meth ods, or hbe is trying to swindle you. This holds good from "gold bricks" to "town lots." A full line of Standard Novels is ke the Deer Lodge Drug Co. tf WIWIMO NOTBEB. Items.of the Great entaaa ladastry.

The Liquidator concentrator, which has lain idle ever since the expiration of the Butte Reduction Company's lease on it, was gain started .up yesterday morning.-Miner, Mr. Delmar, foreman of the Cottonwood, was in town yesterday, en route to Butte. He reports softer rock in the shaft, which is now down about 180 feet, and showed a rich piece of quarts, a seam of which has come into the shaft. The shaftof the Gagnon mine is nowdown to the 700 foot level, and stations are being out Preparations for putting in track and guides were commenced last night, and in a short time the excellent ore that has been found in the lower levels will be finding its way to the surface.-Miner. Since the rise in copper the old dump at Clark's Coltus mine has become immensely valuable, and is now being worked up in connection with other ores. Mr. Clark states that he is now producing 30,000 pounds of fine copper per day. He is also reported re cently to have closed a contract for 2,000,000 pounds of copper for early delivery at 15 cta. These are prosperous times for all the copper producing concerns of Butte.-Inter-Moun tain. The Combination Mining and Milling Co., the new incorporation formed to work the properties of the late Black Pine Mining and Milling Co., started work in the mines asat.Jotaday, tha2d imat, and will continue Uevelopments and explorative works until the changes in the milling plant have been effected. The representation work for the year just ended was all successfully per formed, and the men have been paid. Noth ing now stands in tile way of the success of the new company.-Philipsburg Mail. Foreman Jones, of the Mountain Lion, wrote General Manager McMaster Tuesday that he had ore on both sides of the rich pay streak, and sent samples for assay to deter. mine its value. From Mr. Parker we learn Mr. Jones stated he had a large body of ore. Mr. Paarker did not go in the tuntel, but a specimen of ore weighing 20 pounds or so, which he saw in the cabin, is the richest ore he ever saw. Mr. McMaster went up yester day, but has not returned, and we have no further advices. It looks very much as though the Mountain Lion will jump one of these days. Hon. Con. Kohrs, who, with C. P. H. Biel enberg and Peter Lansing, own the Empire State, one of the promising locations in Oro Fino district, informs us they will soon pur chase" a hoist and commence thorough devel opment of the property. The trouble has been with all leads on Gospel Mountain that the water came in so fast after going dow n 12 to 20 feet on leads that they could not well ,be kept dry with band hoists, and that many owners did not have means and others had not inclination to put on steam hoists. The unprecedented interest now aroused will re sult in whatever investment is necessary being made to develop the properties. Articles of incorporation of the Montana Smelting Company were, Saturday, filed in the office of the Territorial Secretary. The incorporators are Walter S. Gurnee, Angus tus C. Gurnee and Anton S. Eilers, of New York, who, in conjunction with Edward Cooper, of New York, and Harry W. Child, of Helena, are also the Trustees. The capi tal stock of the association is placed at $1,500,000, divided into 15,000 shares of the par value of $100 each, 5,000 shares of stock of the par value of $100 each to be known as "special stock, which may be increased to 6,000 if desired, the remainder of the capital stock to be known as "ordinary stock." The object of the organization is the erection of reducing, refining and smelting works at Great Falls, Cascade county, Montana, which place is also designated as the base of operations.-Herald. - . -Bell mining property is looking up, notwithstanding the fact that Smith and Gamble, the gentlemen that bonded the mine for $100,000, have quit on the claim. The terms of the bond were that if the mine laid idle for 30 days, the property reverted to the original Bell Mining Company. Mr. Wm. H. Douty, it seems, became Interested in the work of development and put up about all the money that has been used since the mine was bonded, and shipped 18 tons of the ore to Butte, and Mr. W. A. Clark was induced to look into the merits of the claim. He was so well pleased with the prospects that Mr. William Thompson, Superinten dent of the Butte Reduction Works, was sent to Missoula to lease the property. A lease for five years was effected-the Bell Mining Co. to get 7.50 a ton for all the ore shipped from the mine as long as copper is worth 12 cents a pound, and $6 a ton when it is worth less. Copper is now worth 17 cts. The parties now taking hold expect to be able by the 1st of April to ship two car loads of ore a week, and the income to the Bell Mining Co, it is thought, at that rate, will be about 8275 a week.-Missoulian, 6th. Don't Experiment. You cannot afford to waste time in expert menting when your lungs are in danger. Consumption always seems at first, only a cold. Do not permit any dealer to impose upon you with some cheap imitation of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and Colds, but be sure you get the genuine. Because he can make more profit he may tell you he has something just as good, or just the same. Don't be deceived, but insist upon getting Dr. King's New Dis. covery, which is guaranteed to give relief in all Throat, Lung and Chest affections.

A SCHOOL OF MINES To be Established as an Auxiliary to the Cellege of Montana. For some time the desirability of a School of Mines in Montana has been apparent. The College of Montana, with its special classes in Metallurgy, Chemistry, Assaying, etc., has to some extent enabled progress in the direction intimated, but it has not felt able hitherto to establish a distinct School of Mines,where Mining and Civil Enginoer ing, Metallurgy, Chemistry, Assaying, Math ematics, Physics and collateral branches should be instituted as a separate depart ment, modeled precisely on that of the Columbia School of Mines, New York, which is acknowledged the standard of high est excellence. The increasing demand for a distinct course and separate department of a School of Mines has grown imperative, and it is now to be undertaken under the most favorable auspices. Dr. Fr. W. Traphagen, Professor of Chem istry, and Professor F. N. Notestine, of the Mathematical Department, are both gradu ates of the Columbia School of Mines. It is proposed to secure, and the terms are condi tionally closed, another first-class Professor of Civil and Mining Engineering and Metal lurgy from the Columbia School, and these three take charge of the school at the College of Montana, equipped with all the essential apparatus, instruments, etc., requisite for the school. The full course will be four years, at $150 per year for tuition, but students can enter for one year if they desire. It is requi site that at least ten students shall enter for the first year before arrangements are finally closed. Of these almost the requisite num ber have already applied for scholarships, and this mention is primarily to give notice to others who may desire to enroll them selves or others for the commencement, the time and particulars of which can be ascer tained by addressing President McMillan or either of the above mentioned Professors. The requirements of admission and graduation will be the same as the Columbia School of Mines. This is one of the most commend able educational enterprises ever undertaken in Montana, and is under such favorable auspices and conditions that it cannot fail to accomplish a most excellent purpose. NOTICE. All persons indebted to the undersigned will please call and settle. R. Coxx New Chicago, M.T., Jan. 4, 1888. 966 4t AFTER MANY YEARS. An Evidence that "Great Bodies Move Slowly." It is not often we have a better exemplifi cation of the adage that "great bodies move slowly," than in a case which has just fallen under our notice. Mr. James W. Fox, of the NEw NOBTH-WEST typographical force, was during the war a member of the 9th Kansas Cavalry, having gone into the service in 1861. His company provided its own horses, and were allowed pay accordingly, and for the value of their horses if they were "killed in the line of duty." In September, 1862, Mr. Fox was sent out with a detachment from Fort Riley to capture a band of horse or mule thieves who had been committing depredations, and made a hard ride to over haul them. When sixty miles up the Repub lican river, above Fort Riley, Mr. Fox's horse became exhausted, staggered and fell to the ground, just as his rider sprang from the saddle, and in a few minutes died. In the spring of 1863, Mr. Fox put in a claim for his horse through a claim agent, valuing the horse at $125. Year after year he waited for payment, and year after year went by with the Government still his debtor. In the meantime he had learned that his agent was serving a term in the Missouri peniten tiary. A couple of years ago he thought it time the clerical department had reached his case, and began instituting inquiries, Which resulted in his employing a new agent for the prosecution of the claim, and just before Christmas he received notice that his claim had been audited and $123.80 allowed him (8120 having been deducted from his horse pay for the time he was afoot), and that when Congress makes the appropriation therefor it will be subject to his order, less the claim agent's fee. He feels now that the Government "do move," and that some day he will get recompense for his "gallant grey." It is twenty-five years since he began prosecuting the claim, and while no interest is allowed him for the amount audited as having been due him since that time, our distressingly "surplussed" government did not hesitate to deduct the $1.20 "lost time" in which he was procuring another horse. Still, although he is a little slow getting around to it, it is comforting to know that Uncle Sam still "keeps a coming" with his arrears of payment, and if a man lives long enough, and has an indisputable right to be paid, be will finally get at least a consoling message like that which now makes rejoice the heart of our worthy associate. We have suggested to him our desire to do business with him in settling his "strings" on the same terms, but he thinks one such expe rience enough. A Blaze in Butte. Warfield & Houser's livery stable, Butte, took fire in some manner unknown at 10 or 11 o'clock Sunday night, and was totally con sumed. The 40 horses in the building were gotten out, but their carriages, harness, hearse and buggies, and ten tons of hay, burned. Loss, $3,000 to $4,000. The build ing was owned by Ross Deegan, of Helena, who seems to be a special victim of "fire bugs," and we suspect the work was incen diary. The two adjoining buildings west, and one east, occupied by the Mining Journal, were not burned, but damaged, and the Jour nal material a great deal injured in removal. Mr. Penrose immediately leased a building on West Broadway and removed thereto" The fremen worked heroically, but were seriously delayed by the severe weather hav ing frozen the water. The thermometer was 25 deg. below zero at the time of the fire. RAILROAD BUSINESS. Statistlcs of the Business Done in 1887. We are indebted to Mr. E.

The Montana Central train, north bound, went only as far as Cartersville yesterday, not being able to get through to Great Falls on account of snow.--Herald, 1Oth. The entire east-bound passenger train on the N. P. was derailed by a snow drift east of Livingston Tuesday morning. The engine turned over on its side, killing Engineer Munro and Fireman Gustuforson. No pas sengers killed or in.jured, nor were the cars turned over. Col. Clough, assistant to President Hill, of the Manitoba, in answer to the rumored pur chase of the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern Road for the Pacific end of the Manitoba's projected transcontinental line, declares there is nothing whatever in the story. The Colonel states that the Manitoba has not yet determined to build beyond Montana points. He said the company was acquiring informa tion concerning the country west of there in order to be able, if it was ever determined to build further, to do it intelligently. Herald.

Charles McCannon, a workman in the Moulton mill, inadvertently stepped into the hot pulp last Friday, and although immedi ately pulled out by fellow workmen, was so horribly burned that shreds of flesh and skin came off with his charred shoes. The pulp was four or five feet deep, and if he had struggled be would have sunk in it like quicksand. J. M. Erskine, business manager of Bach, Cory & Co., Helena. last Sunday shot Mr. Leo Sutor at Basin City, as a result of an attachment on some property and a business quarrel. The pistol shot entered Sutor's face, but did not inflict a dangerous wound. Erskine says Sutor assaulted and knocked him down, and went for a pistol before he shot at him. Supt. Anderson, of Timberline, was in the city on Monday and informed us that about 100 miners are now at work at the Timber. line mines, and that in two months Timber line will be getting out as much coal as it did in its best days-which was about 11,000 tons per month. Twelve men per week are being put to work, and before long as many men as at once worked at these mines (250( will be at work. This means well for Boze man, to which the people look for much of their supplies. Only one mine is now being worked.-Botsemr Chronicle. DIED. MENARD.-In Deer Lodge, M.

He was born in Arbroath, Scotland, and lived there, following the occupation of a brass finisher, until 1886, when he came to America and to Deer Lodge, where his chil dren, Wm. Robb and Mrs. George Gregg, reside. He has been 1ll with pleurisy some time, but his early death was not appre hended by himself or others. At 4:30 o'clock Sunday morning he got up, replenished the fire, and returned to bed. About 5 o'clock Mrs. Robb spoke to him, inquiring if he had taken his medicine. Receiving no answer she went to his bed and found him dead. He was an industrious, kind hearted old gentle man, whose loss all deplore. 8top That Cough.
