News reaches us of the death on
Thursday last ofLen Lewis, the old
pioneer who, for more than a quart
er of a century, lived at Lewis ferry,
which he established in ihe early
history of the state on Snake river
below the Shoshone falls. Lewis
was 70 years of age. A stroke of j
paralysis carried him off. He was *

came into the house: saying his arm :

had been paralyzed. He laid
, , . f ,
down and in a few minutes he was
a corpse. . r , , .
There is not a man m Idaho who
came over the old overland road
from Kelton who does not remem
her Lcn Lewis. All old timers
personally acquainted with

him, and, when they hear of his
sudden death, the pages of memory
will be turned back to the early
days and many reminiscence of old
Len will be called up.
Lewis was the first settler of what
is known as old Alturas county.
He caught the western fever
early and, though dangers often be
set his path, be finally found his
way to the then wilda of Idaho and ^
w ith others began the arduous duty
of preparing this country for habi
tation of those to come after.
He was an Indian fighter of con
siderable reputation. It is said of
him that he killed more Indians
than he had fingers and toes in de
fending himself, and that his un
daunted courage finally won for him
the fullest admiration of all thered
skins, who believed him to be en
dowed with power from some super
natural source.

He also distinguished himself as
a member of Walker's Nicaragua

his many thrilling experiences on

the city this week, bound for the
snowy region of Hailey.
Dennis Me Nulty, who purchased
Gus Bassler's ranch joining the
city on the east, is intending to im
prove his place extensively this
spring.
James Burn's fine ranch, lying one
mile north of the city limits, was
the scene of bustling activity this
week. Mr. Burns who has been
feeding 300 of his cattle there this
winter was putting the steers and
dry cows out on the burn where
there is fine feed now. Mr. B. kept
in about 100 calves which will be
fed about four weeks more.
The large cotton-wood ranch lying
just east of town, has been rented

bank has not yet been heard, but
Mr. II. feels much encouraged by a
recent decision of the supreme

and the fact that the defendants
are anxious to compromise with
him shows their case very weak.
