Winnie Scott, a woman of red light fame, shot and instantly killed herself in the Spotted l\g saloon at Musselshell last Sunday evening shortly after six o'oloek. The shooting took place in a room ad joining the saloon, the woman be ing alone at the time. She fired two shots before turning the weapon upon herself and then sent a 88 caliber bullet thru her brain hold ing the gun close to lier right temple, instant death following. It is not quite clear why the two pre liminary shots were fired hut it is thought that she was unused to handling a gun or else that she de sired to attract attention before committing the deed. There were two men in the hallway leading to the room at tin* time of the shoot ing, who, when they heard the shots, demanded of the woman what she was doing. She replied that she was going to kill herself, and immediately upon that tired the fatal shot thru her head. The two men broke down the door and found her lying on the floor partly under the bed in a pool of blood. Deputy Waldo of this place was | j notified who immediately went to the scene of the suicide. County at-1 torney Ayers and coroner Attix were also sent for and arrived there the next «lay. A coroner's jury was impanelled, the finding of the jury being that the woman came to her death by lier own hand. The woman had at several previous occasions threatened to do away with herself and it is thought that she carried out her threat in a fit of despond ency. The remains were buried at Musselshell Tuesday morning. J. < >. Blaine, who conducts the place known as the Spotted Pig Saloon where the affair occurred, was arrested by Deputy Waldo on a statutory offense of allowing women in a place where intox u n iting liquors are sold. He was brought to Roundup Tuesday and 'tried before Judge Conk, who fined him $200, the prisoner pleading i guilty to the charge. Brick factory for Roundup. C. P. Slater, a brick manufaturer of Billings, was in town several days this week on business in connection with the starting of a brick yard here. Mr. Slater is interested in \ the project with A. L. Eberhardt who has been making l»ri**k here j on a small scale, having burned about 120.000 last fall. The day : ! found along the hanks of the Mussd i shell is of a superior quality and j will make an A1 brick as can he I I seen by examining those made by j ! Mr. Eherhardt. The new, firm will ; put in improved machinery with a j daily capacity of 20,000 and will employ about 25 men. The yard will he located about half a mile east of town. St. Paul Makes Improvements. Surveyors have been at work the I past week laying out additional I side track and spurs between the ^ main line and the river at this j place and the work of clearing the ! ground has already commenced, j The work of grading and laying track will he pushed rapidly as ' the present trackage is far too limit j ed for the amount of business done, j as many as four trains are in the ! j ards here at times which necessitate ! much unnecessary switching and ! causes considerable delay. There ■ will he two more side tracks, two coal spurs and also several indust j trial spurs on the north side in the ; vicinity of the "Y" which will ho I extended. Besides these improve ! ments the St. Paul is also making a poliminary survey up Half Breed I for a coal spur and it is now prob able that one of the new shafts of the Republic Coal Co., will he loeat | eel about two miles from Uound ! up, Stock yards will he put in here immediatly and the platform at the depot extended 50 feet on the west and 25 on the east side. "Cal" Ment Some. "Cal" Millard, the popular ex «•owboy who has lidden the range not a little on the hurricane «leek of many a bucking broncho, and «louhtlessly without some hairrais ing experiences, was given a run for his money last Saturday, and »* wasn't a wily "hrone" either that ! : , ; ' | : j I j figured in the episo«le. "Cal" cot a new motor cycle last week and there's the rub. He took it out to his garage, hack of "The Maverick." saddled it. oiled it up, petted and fed it candy preparatory to taking a stationary spin in the stall, little! "Happy Hooligan," his favorite «log, standing by wondering what it was all about and distaining the j attention his master was bestow ing upon the inanimate thing. Finally straddling the machine with- : out much resistance on its part, lie started up the power for the tuai speeding. Everything went lovely and "Cal" was enjoying the seene'y | along the route with not a cere; about him. The gasoline eonsuni- 1 er, however, was going to outdo | itself and was not satisfied with a paltry 25 miles per hour. an«l forth-; with proc<"edo«l to show "Cal" a few things about spe«'d such as he had only h«*en accustomed to in his dreams. The sliced therm«nn«'tei' soon showed that space was being annihilated at the rate of a mile in the shade Fahrenheit and the seenery was passing by in hazy in distinctness. Just about that time the frame upon which the motor cycle was resting was getting shaky and "Cal" was suddenly brought down to things earthly by the j thought of what would ensue if the, wheels would once get a grip on j the floor and what a dent it would make in the wall of the' garage in their endeavor to) comply with the speed demanded by the indicator. This confused "Cal" a trille and for a while he didn't know which lever to pull and which button to press. Little "Happy" saw his master's dilem ma and endeavored to bring about his rescue hut was unable to he of any assistance. Finally relief came, the fractious machine was roped and subdued and "Cal" was saved. Local Happenings. Vie Mumbrue went to White Sul-1 plier yesterday where he Iras a home- ; stead.
