escapetd to-night and did a grea;t iid,' ofi
damage. One ot' them is still :it lar~ge.
It becomes our painful dt, to announce
the death of Thos. J. EBgy, which occur-i
red this imornlig at half past4 o'clock. It
was not uyiexpected, as he has been very
low for s':ne time, but his friends were
hopeful that, u.nder the skillful medical
treatment he had reccived since his renloval
from Poplar River to this place, he might
gain suflicieut strength to stand the jour
ney to his Ihomne in Texas.
Mr. Bogy was an old resident of the Ter
ritory, having come here as early as 1864.
lie was then employed at Silver City. In
186t7 he was employed by 'T. C. Power &
Bro., at their trading post, at old Camp
Cook, and continued in their employ in
various capalcities tp to a few weeks ago,
when the ravages of consumption, the
cmtuse of his death, compelled him to take
to his bed, never to rise again.
Mr. Bogy was a business man of more
than ordinary capacity and was a fine,
genial gentleman hi every sense of the
word and endlenr'cd himself to his friends
by his social qualities which were of the
11irstorder. lie was attended by his brother,
hMr. Wi. BoIgy, who hurried to his bed
side as oon as oo ai he was ile aware of his
illness. Mr. Bogy was a nephew of Mr.
J. iH. MiKuniaght, of Fort Shaw, and of
Senator Bogy of Missouri. In another I
column annoucement is inade of the time
the fuoeral will take p)lace.
Prairie Fires.
Mr. Geo. H. . Farmer, who returned to
the city from- an expedition after stolen
horses, reports that the country north of
us is all afire. There is one fire, as near
as he could judge, near the lake on the
north side of Milk -river, in the vicinity of
the Fort Walsh road, and another one be-i
low Milk river near the Fort Macleod
crossing. The dry spell has made the grass
very dry, and freighteris and parties-travel
ing over the p;l:airfe siould use thi greatest
care with their camp iires that they may
not accidentally set tire to the grass. It is
for evervyoe' iiierel' to see to .tis. The
burning of grass along roads that are trav
eled by freight teamus as much as the Mac
leod and Wl;dsh roads are work 'a great
hardship -tuid causes thousands of dollars
of loss which a:little care at the time wouhl
obviate. To any one who would deiiber
ately set tire to the prairie no punishment
is too great, and it is the duty of every
citizen to rcport.any .such bases t9 the
proper auithuoitiic'l that thei offendersllc may
be brought to speedy ju., ice. As our stock
ranges from year to year are being rapidly
filled up, these devastating fires that have
in years gone by slvcpt from one end of
the coutry to the other, have becomet a
menace 1 6.it stock interests, and itis
only by the exercise of the utmost caution
and. w.tcthfulness on the part of every one
whose business calls them n pm the prairie
that a repetitioln of our past experiencc is
avoided.
Death of Captain .& II. H.artey.
Capt. John Hay Reaney, one of St. Paul's
best known and most -esteemed citizens,
died on the 19th of July ,Of organic heairt
disease. His passing away was sudden,
but not altogether unexpected, as his phy
sicians had little or no hope" tha'tIlhe would
be able to -la.' his bed again. Capt. :Ret
ney was born May 11, l(1836, at Pittsburg,[i
Pa. Hie came to Minnesota in 1852 or
1853, and was therefore one of the pioneers
in the development of the Northwest. He
began steamhboating soon afterwards and
comnnmnded( various boats. At the tihne of
his death he was the agent of the St. Louis
and St. Paul Packet company-, and was not
only the St. Paul agent, but was the conti
dential friend of Commodore Davidson!
anel his adv iser iall his river Nt 1trphsea.
The relatibas of the two men were more
like those of brothers than employer and';
employe. Ca:pt. Reainey was widely
known amopg river men, fromSt. Paul to!
New Orleans, and iall the western waters.
lie was a member of the Ancient Land.-t
mark Lodge, and of the Damaseis Com
nmanlerl.-aMoQteaideo, (Minn.) Leader.
