Came to the United States near the close of the war and serv. ed a short time In the Confederate army as surgeon. After the war be entered the service of the United States, and served ten years as a hospital steward. lIe was a good surgeon and physician, and ever ready to attend to the call of the sick and suffering. lie came to the Tetocn alout two years ago.

A Crime Committed in Germany Three Years Ago Charted to a lore It is learned from a gen~arnan from Bozeman that the eastern Montana me. tropolis has a sensation, and it is likely that a prominent resident of that vicinity will hlave the crime of murder fixed upon him. The man in question is Earnest Snyder. The name of the murdered man was Rudolph Zimmermon. and the crime was committed in Germany three years ago, robbery being the motive and a big pile of swag belug the result. No clew to the identity of the perpetrator of the crime was discovered until quite recently, when it came out through the Indiscretion of a Berlin Catholic priest to whom Say. der had confessed the murder. Snyder came to America and settled in Montana, embarking In railroad contracts and succeeded in. making a good deal of money. About two years ago he fell In with two brothers of the murdered Zim. merman, and they formed a copartnership for carrying on the business of lumbering in the mountains near lBozeman. About a week ago the Zimmerman brothers re. ceived a letter from friends in Germany, that they were on the trace of the mnur. derer of their brother, and hoped in their next letter to be able to state who he was. This letter was read to Hnyder, who ap peared greatly excited. The next morn. lag he packed his valise and said lie was going out hunting. They thought it strange that lie should dress up In his best clothes and take a satchel with him on a hunting trip, but still suspectednodeeper motive. After three days' absence their fears were aroused, search was instituted, and their comrade was tracked to a precipire where broken bushes and trampled snow indicated a death struggle, and tihe disap ipearance over the cliff of some one. They took it for granted that Snyder had lost his life in an encouuter with a bear and returned to Bozeman. There a telegram was received from Germany stating that Snyder was the murderer of their brother ,udolph. It was at once apparent that Snyder had prepared the evidences of his death for the purpose of misleading his partners, while he made his escape. lie leaves a large amount of property.--Inter Mount ain.

Augusta is booming-with mud. The Mountain Nightengale Is erecting a little palace on hisi ranch. The roller rink craze has struck here. Now that the doctor has returned from Iowa a rink will be started immediately. Owners of scabby sheep are Jubilant over the discovery of sulphur on North Fork. Sheep dip will be a drug on the market before Christmas. Long before the initial exercises com. menced, Mannlx hall,the atheneum of Au. gusts, was crowded with parents and others to witness the long looked.for school exhibition. The entertainment was a p.Ioaant surprise to all. Words are inadequate to express to the compliment the people of Augusta should feel they are under to the efficient teacher of the rising generation for the masterly man. noer in which each exercise was rendered; the literary treat extended to all; three hours surrounded with scenes of youth sweet, sunny days of childhood. The un. abated enthusiasm was highly compli. mentary, a titting tribute to the untiring efforts of Mr. Van Eman. The adult aux iliarles who so kindly volunteered their services were quite an addition to the per. formance. The music, both instrumental and vocal, was of the highest order, ren. dered with a delightful finish which only cultured artists of the front rank can give. "l)on't give up the old friend for the new" was a masterly effort and by far the best rendition of the choir. "Eleven Minutes on the Old Sod" was the hit of the evening. l'Tere is a future in store for Mr. and Mrs. O'Brien, with millions in it. Pat's make-up was true to life. lie was a regular gas.house terrier. John ever try to palm yourself off fora native. born.

"Are yo golu' up to join Itlel, you feminine ?" "Iridget, the top o' the mornln' to ye! Yo was a darlin'. The tableaux were good-very creditable to our blome talent. "Thle angels" were too natural for anything--so near perfec. tion that we thought we had a glimpse of the echoless shore. "Joshua's Courtship" was very realistic. Was is taken from life? T'le honors of the evening. Tihe blue ribbon of elocution was fairly won by Nellie Neafus. IHer recital of "Why Don't he Come" was su. perb, characteristic of more than ordlu. ary merit. "Doings on the Creek," by the sane y'ung lady will be long remein. tiered by those that the cap fits. It is inm possible to speak too highly of the patIh etic way in which the "Dynlug Nun" was sang by Misses Mary and Rosy Spencer. 'Their beautiful voices hamrlonizing to perfection. It was quite a revelation to the audience and was received with rapt attention. "Little Mtud Pies," by by the smallest of thent all, brought down the house.

Mils Jennle Thomas' modest and unassuming demeanor won favor imme. diately. Her adaptatlonof 'Paul Revere" was amasingly grand. "The First Fall of Snow," by Lena Bertholote, was good, but by the look of the westhe today we should prefer to see the last fall snow Considering the ago of Ethel Van Eman her "Blue and Gray" was well delivered. In fact, all, boys and'.girls alike, recited their pieces In an admirable way, endorw ing the already high esteem lha.whblc their tutor, Mr. Van Eaus, is still bheld by all persons on South Fork. Old timers say It was quite a setrast:. to look upon the smiling school hebldre -the sea of merry tfaes--ad than let the past come back llke an embalmed mirage-back to the time when the noble savage reigned supreme-when the noun. try i.d no teacher but God.

Louis Riel, who Is now leading the half lr eds In their rebellion against the Canadian government, was elected to the Hlouse of Commons by the half.breed contingent some thirteen or fourteen year ago. It is said that at the time he was under a ban, and that a price was e't on his head; consequently he dared not visit the capital to o take his seat in Parliament. Living at a great distance from the seat of government, the mileage he would re. calve as a member would amnunt to'qnite a sum; and resolving to make somrethln-g out of his election as long a he could not serve in the House, he traveled to Ot. taws in disguise, discovered his Identity to the Secretary, drew his mileage, whlch a'nounted to something near $1,000, and got back to his constituency again before the government officals could have him arrested. Such is the daring spirit of th mamn who is now leading the Northwest rebellion,.-Herald. Horses Taken Up. We are In recelptof the followlng from D:vid illdart, of Birch creek: A man working for us found a horse and mare traveling towards Dupuyer from Birch creek, with ropes on them. He drove them to the stable of Klpp & Upham, thinking they belonged to some traveler. We have since found that some Indian had them cached or claimed them and we know they must be stolen horsoes and belong to some person In. the lower country. We harv taken them out of the s able and have them now on our ranch. I have done this for the benefit of the owner, for I know he will be more liattL to get them than if the Indian had them. The owner can have them by proving property and paying costa of advertislng and stable charges.
