Dipping Vats Dynamited.
Last Sunday night or early
Monday morning unknown parties
dynamited two dipping vats in
Beat 4; one near the home of
Mr. Forrest Quinn and the other
near Mrs. Livingstons, both in
the vicinity of Sturgis.
There is a strong opposition to
dipping cattle with certain parties
who refuse to comply with the law
and have taken matters in their
own hands and propose to defy
the authorities.
The law-abiding element of
Sturgis and Beat 4 do not condone
such procedure, and in fact will
do all in their power to bring the
guilty parties to justice.
This is a case in which the Fed
eral laws, as well as the state
laws, have been violated, and it is
to be hoped that the parties who
committed this crime will be ap
