Another Shooting Scrape News of the fourth shooting - scrape in Chouteau county within ten days was received Wednesday evening in a teleiit 'iim to Sheriff Buckley from Che=ter. It stated that Frank Mosher had been shot by J. L. Shaufner at a ranch on Little Sage creek, and that the wounded man had been taken to Havre for treatment. The shooting is said to have taken place Tuesday afternoon at a point about 35 miles northeast of Chester. It appears that Mosher had called at Shaufner's place, and as he rode away he was followed by a dog owned by the latter. Shaufner tried to make the dog come back, and accused Mosher with enticing the animal away, and this provoked a quarrel that resulted in the shooting. The weapon used by Shaufner was a Winchester rifle, and Mosher was shot through the body just above the hips.

Big Timber , May 24.— Dr. V. T. Chestnut of the Bozeman experiment college has arranged for some impor tant experiments iu this county with the loco plant. The scene of the oper lions will be on the ranch of Paul Van Cleve, several miles above Mel ville. The experiments last year with feeding the loco did not prove that the weed in itself is actually harmful, as sheep fed at the Kelly ranch for a cer tain length of time actually toots: on flesh and showed other signs of phys ical improvement. It is believed by many old-time sheep men in this part of the state that the presence of worms iu sheep sup posed to be affected with loco can eas ily be explained from the fact that during the hot weather of summer the stocks of the loco plant emit a sort of sweetish liquid or juice which attracts a certain tly; the flies deposit eggs in the stock of the plant which develop into worms, and these worms are said not to be unlike those found in the carcasses of sheep. The stock of the loco plant, when broken off during a certain period of the summer, will disclose these worms in considerable numbers. A Startling Test. To save a life, Dr. T. G. Merritt, of No. Mehoopaoy, Pa., made a startling test, resulting in a wonderful cure. He writes, "a patient was attacked with vidlent hemorrhages, caused by ulcer ation of the stomach.
