The body was found about 4 o'clock Satur day afternoon by Mr. Hatton and one of the searching party among the hills overlooking Santa Rosa, and within a mile of the city. Word of the findingof the body was immediately brought to this city justice of the peace Gallegos Sheriff Casaus. Dr. Rudolph and many oiher citzens hastened to the scerfe of the crime. A co roner's 'jury was immediately sworn in and an investigation begun. ; ' When found, the body was wedged in between the rocks and underbrush' and stone partly covered it The clothing was al ;nott torn from the body and a piece 6f the skirt had ben wound around the neck and the :e t fractured and a large cut appear ed across the forhead just above che eyes.'

Not reaching home as expected, her parents became alarmed and came to search for her. Her friends here advised them that she had started home shortly be fore noon and that they had heard nothing from her since that time. Searching parties were immediately organized and a thorough search begun. The horse had not returned home and when found about two o'clock was standieg along the fence recently built along the Los Tanos road, showing that after it had been released it had started home. The saddle and bridle were missing ana nave not yet been found. If they were taken by the murderer they may poss bly lead to his discovery.

Seyen miles from Billings on high bench iartd, T J. Bouton of that city has demonstrated the profitable results of applying dry far.ning principles in raising grain. . Mr. Bouton has a number of fields of gra.n in which the i.a.-ves.ers are nOiV at work, one ji which is representative u the entire ranch. T. lis particular fed was planted April 20 to Durum W heat. Thé sod was broken only four inches deep, horses being used for plowing and that being the limit of depth to which the plow could be forced without a traction out fit Mr. Bouton employed a Missourian to take caie of this iklJ a maa who had been accustomed to old-fashioned methods of farming in the East and Midcle Wett. Ihe gan came up with an unusually thr.f ty appearance. Mr. Bouton in structed tha Missourian to keep right on harrowing and the easterner, in astonishment, told his employer that he wculd ruin the finest field of grain in Yellow stone county if he altmpted to iun a harrow over it, but Mr. Bouton, having faith in dry farming methods, ordered the harrowing to continue. Tha -deld was harrowed three -times ' after the" grain came up, once being after it had headed out. To the astonishment of the Missourian, instead of ruining the fie'd, the grain grew more prosperously and promisingly than anything he had ever seen. An ordinary spike harrow was used. "I endeavored to follow out the suggestions made at the Dry Farming Congress at Cheyenne, said Mr. Bouton, and I am fully convinced that the so-called dry farmers are right. I beUeue if I had been able to plow deepar I would have gotten even better results. The samples of this ' wheat which I am exhibiting at ; my office were picked at random from the field of 92 acres, 'ihe heads are 3 1-2 to 7 inches long i well filled and the kernels are 'plump and solid. I believe the result will be at Uant 25 bushels (coüÜliliütl on pa;;c tj. j i . "i 4 "l .J i, ! it' i r W i r, I ". If . I1. m in"
