OLDEST SUBSCRIBER RENEWS SUBSCRIPTION Oliver Rifle, one of the earliest pioneer residents of Elko county, paid the Independent office a viait Satur day, and left a deposit for a year's subscription. The renewal of a subscription or the entering of a new subscriber is a common thing indeed, and is not con sidered worthy of mention, but in the case of Mr. Iliffe we find one extra ordinary. He has been a regular sub scriber for thirty consecutive years, and was an intimate friend of General Kelly, S. S. Sears and C. \V. Grover, former editors, long since passed away. Wo are pleased to report Mr. Riffe as enjoying the best of health despite liis advanced years. He ?s one of the youngest, most active and energetic old gentlemen In th? county. We wish him a continuation of health and happiness and hope that he will be able to continue to enjoy the Indepen dent for another thirty years at least. O AWFUI.

The child had been atttacked and strangled to death. Fountain notilied the Kev. Charles F. Ochler. pastor of the church, who in turn notified the police. The jani tor was taken into custody. He told a straightaway story which found cor roboration in some, particulars to night. The Millings girl had been meeting at the church w.. ue companions twice a week to sow on Christmas gifts. Today was not a meeting day and, she Is supposed to have gone to the church by mistake. How she got in and who the mur derer was remained a mystery late to night. Fountain told the police he locked the doors upon going to lunch, and noticed, upon returning that one of them was open. lie said this could be corroborated by Denjamin Ochler, the paster's soon, who was fixing an automobile near the church and whose attention. Fountain said, he directed to the open door. Going to the base ment after a duster, he found the body huddled In a corner, strangled with a cord and with the marks of a man's hand gouged into the face. Aspects of the murder thus far re vealed recalled those of Minnie Wil liams and Ulanclie Laniont, In San Francisco in 1895, for which Theodore Durant was hanged. The victims in this case, however, were adults. Fountain, according to a statement made by the police late tonight, had made visits to the Milling residence on several occasions. I)r. Ochler, the pastor, said that on several occasions he had rebuked Fountain for his de meanor towards young girls of the church and that he had instructed him not to be familiar with tlu-m.
