The west bound train from Miasoula ;
Thursday bad a miraculous escape 1
from going into the Mimoula river,
"y> the Wallace Preaa It occurred
at a bridge between Quartz and Rivu
let, where In order to avoid tunneling
a bridge is built out «ver tbe river,
and about 150 feqt above the water.
A landslide had occurred whicb took
out part of the trestle, leaving the top
of the bridge undisturbed. When the
engine ran onto it the bridge began to
settle, and each succeeding coach
pressed it down farther.. So deep was
the depression that tbe engine broke
loose from the mail car, the coupling
being broken by the acute angle, but
the coaches had impetus enough to
carry them all across. When they got
out and looked at the bridge tbe tres
tle for sever spans was gone entirely,
the rails alone supporting the ties. A
crew was set-to work on it as soon as
possible and the bridge was repaired
Appeal DUmlMtd la Shauhann County Com
The supreme court last Friday dls
mised the appeal in tbe case of John
F. Mahoney et al, appellants, vs. tbe
board of commissioners of Shoshone
county, says the Statesman. -The
plaintiffs appealed from the board's
action in employing eight additional
deputies. The lower court sustained
tbe action of the board, whereupon a
motion for a new trial was made and
oyerruled. Tbe supreme court holds
that appeals from the action of the
board of commissioners under section
1779 of the revised statutes must be
tried anew; tbat the district court has
no authority to hear or grant a mo
tion for a new trial and. that there is
no appeal from a* order- of the court
denying a' new trial in such cases.
The court also holds that appeal from
the Judgment in'.such, case must be
taken within 60-days, whereas, in the
case at bar, it-was -not taken until
after dD days had.'elapsed.
Last Sunday Deputy Sheriff Wil

died an hour later. A coroner's jury
was impaneled and the deputy was
