During the present lull in the county jail it is being treated to a fresh coat of whitewash for the benefit of its three occupants. Last Tuesday morn ing R. A. Walker, who hails from Ver non, Utah, and who says he was vis iting friends, is now an occupant of the city bastile and is employed on the streets. The crime for which his visit was unexpectedly postponed was the taking of a " smile ' ' from a flask of whiskey in public on the depot plat form in the august presence of Chief of Police Sewell, who immediately ush ered him into the presence of Police Judge Good, who fined him $ 120 . 1 ) 0 , or ten days, and he choose the latter fate rather than send for money to his chil dren, whom he is loath to inform of his predicament. The remnants of his flask were confiscated, and had it not been for his 64 years he would have hail to answer to a charge of over-indulgen.-» in the forbidden liquid. Federal Hearing. Jesse Adams, the colored boy charged with selling whiskey to Henry Kisher, an Indian who was run over and killed by a train in this city while in an in toxicated condition, was given a pre liminary hearing this afternoon in the office of United States Commissioner Turner. Adams was bound over to the federal court and his bond fixed at $500, and in lieu of which he was confined in the county jail. Horton H. Miller, the government Indian agent at Port Hall, was present at the hearing and it is stated that several charges will be made against Adams. Ralph Dixie, who attended the trial of the colored boot-legger who sold Henry Kisher the whiskey which is sup posed to have caused his death, says that there are suspicions that the death of Kisher was not altogether accidental. The fact that none of the $50 he had when he left Blaekfoot was found on his person, and also the many wounds on his person are said not to have been caused by the car wheels passing over him, as there were no broken bones, ami the wounds have every appearance of knife cuts inflicted by some robber assailant.

Hart is expected home Sat urday from Twin Kails, where he has accepted a permanent and lucrative po sition in the commercial line. 2000 Pony Votes on a subscription. ■ j ; : I j j Palm Sunday Auto Accidents Are Numerous. Last Sunday—Palm Sunday—seems to have been a very unlucky Sabbath for automobile owners, as about eight of their machines were badly demol ished and their occupants seriously "Mid painfully injured, some of whom had a narrow escape with their lives. The town of Kirth was the scene of most of the misfortune that was caused by the alleged carelessness of "Dad" Llay, one of the oldest and most exper ienced auto drivers in this vicinity. Ac cording to the story of the accident, Ben Sage, of Shelley, was going north in a Kord with his family, followed by Mr. Clay in a Hupmobile, with 'Mr. Dawe, a friend. Evidently Mr. Sage was not traveling fast enough for the veteran autoist, who attempted to pass him by turning to the left, with in creased speed. Just us he made the turn he encountered a Studebaker car which was coming south, with Kred Nelson, his wife and two brothers, all of whom were slightly cut and bruised His wife was the one mostly injured, .she having had her front teeth knocked out. The force of the collision of the IIup with the Stmlebaker threw the I Ilup over on the Ford, when Mr. Sage's I little daughter was thrown violently ; against the wind-shield and badly lac i crated. The other occupants of the Ford were not seriously injured. Mr. Clay, who is quite an aged man, escaped with a sprained wrist and several slight bruises. The three care were piled up in a mass of wreckage that resembled An Honest Man. ■ Once upon a time, Diogenes had an j endless search for an honest man, but ; that was many years ago, and if he had been fortunate enough to live in the ' irsr", r"" 7 ;:i in *'< ktoot he could have found one • without half trying, as Mother Just can testify. Last Friday this Mother Just, who lives up the Blaekfoot river, lost her precious Hetty Green hand-bag—it hasn t as much in it as Hetty Green 's, but she felt the loss just as keenly. She knew it had been picked up some where on the road southwest of Black foot that leads to the Stevens ranch, NOTICE.

Kred Nelson contends that he could not have averted the accident as he was on the right of the road and could not have given Mr. Clay more room even if he had had the time to u ' 'l° n c so. Mr. Clay acknowledges that he was the cause of the wrecking of* the Ford, and has signified his will ingness to have it repaired. In the evening at the scene of this auto disaster another serious accident was miraculously averted. Mrs. C. W. Berryman, Jr, who was returning home from Meise Springs in her car, stopped to view the remains of the three de funct cars, and was about alighting when Dr. Simmons with his ear ap peared upon the scene and accidentally collided with the Indy's car, the jolt ot which threw the fair autoist violent ly to the ground and injuring her hip, though not seriously. Dad Clay and his attorney, Arthur Holden, arrived in Blnckfoot yester day morning to entertain a warrant served on the former for reckless and imprudent driving, that tended to in jure persons and property. Attorney Holden contends that the accident was not due to carelessness or imprudence on the part of his client, and will enter a plea of not guilty when Probate Judge Doud returns from-Twin Kails. About S):.'!() Sunday night, C. W. Hol land and a car full*of friends collided with a cow on the road near Wapello. The joy-riders escaped injury, but the cow was killed and the car injured, and a lawsuit threatened. but she had no clue as to who had done the picking. The papers had all gone to press: -he could not advertise, so sh«, began in her single handed manner, but after talk ........ manner, our after talk * ng ,ier ^ est for eight hours she saw -ÄÄJyiÄ'" - Anyone who knows Mother Just and he r hand bag knows that she would rather part with all her other earthly possessions than with that one myster ious, tan-colored carry-all with the brass chain handle. So her friends be gan to fear that some inhuman creature had "Charlie Rossed" the small bag. Theji a timid voice over the telephone said! ''Is thi* Mrs. Emma Just's hoinef Well, tell her I found her hand bag along the road today, and if she will call 42S> I shall return it to her." And when she called 429 that boy was as glad to restore the lost hand-bag as the worrying woman was to receive it. I wonder if obi Diogenes could be made to believe that there were five perfectly good dollars in the bag, and several more just behind it. all of which the young man stoutly refused to ac cept. An Honest Boy. While in Blaekfoot last Friday Mrs. N. A. Just lost her bug containing a purse and some highly treasured trink ets which she could not replace. The lost hand-bag fortunately was picked up by Glen Wright aud cheerfully re turned to the owner, the former refus ing any compensation for 4iis appre ciated lionestv. Faster Party. Miss Lorna Jordan gave a party at 1er home south of Blaekfoot Wednes day, about twenty-five of her friends being present. The house was prettily decorated in flowers and Easter decora tions. Games were played and a daintv lunch served. The City Council.
