The disappearance of old

of an estate of approximately $2o.£
,lh * never been explained. No olh
occurrence of the kind in Idaho
caused more comment. All hia lo
1 f *', spent mostly in these
h * nc '' he ro.n e as a pioneer to
« over the Yellowstone, was a life
,n *t that h« was born in Dentn
aml 'eft the land of the Danes In
u ^n* « » runaway sailor lad,
I on <he «-oast of California, wht
be came this way and on into Mon
,Hn " where with two companions h
tlrst saw what are now the wonders
j
!
of the great national park From th
Ht tie he would ever say about him
self m Denmark It was always In
«**rred that he had run away from
1 borne and had never heard directly
from his peop'e afterward.
At this point he would stop In hia
autobiography but hts Ufe since com
ing here was an open book, for b*
married and settled down and raised
a son and became a cattle king. Then
he became estranged from bis wife
and was divorced after their bereav
m< nt In the death of the Idolised boy,
a likely lad of about twelve year*
»lu-n he was taken The fortune was
then divided between huvband and
wife.
The old man's name might have
been any other Scandinavian patro
nymic than Peterson and Indeed It
has been surmised of him that he
changed hla name as p. boyish freak
It Is known that he entertained Just
such notions For Instance, not
many years ago when he wanted to
ffect a change In his household af
,alr * **e gave out the story that he
v '*' t »bout to leave Salmon for an In
! definite stay In California and that
j be wished to close up his house Ac
<or <llnil> thi old man left town with
b "K "»<1 baggag.* packed as If for a

only a day or so. Just- long enough
to accomplish the purpose of .ff«>t
