A few moments later a shot was heard and he was found in the hallway in front of the door leading to Frankie Rosemont's room with a bullet wound in his head. The revol er he had used he had taken out of the girl's trunk unknown to her. Wordsworth was given immediate medical attention but he passed away about five hours after the shooting.

A. Taylor of Yellowstone county, who assisted County Attorney Desmond J. O'Neil in the prosecution, briefly went over the points that the state would attempt to prove. The defendants were charged with grand larceny or cattle stealing in that they had some time in 1910 killed and appropriated to their own use a beef belonging to Handel Bros, of Musselshell and bear ing their brand. The state showed that the hide of the beef after it had been killed was mutilated and the parts bearing the brand concealed. These pieces were afterwards found and pieced together disclosing the brand I li liar, Handel Bros.' brand. Horseshoe imprints found near the sce-ie of the killing were identified as hei - :;; similar to those made by the shoes worn by a horse owned ami used bv tile defendant XVriglit Harvey. By evidence introduced the defense showed that, the defendant believed that he was the rightful owner of the animal in question.
