Eunice Murphy Bound Over.
The preliminary trial of Eunice
Murphy charged with inciting tie
murder of Charles Sellers on June
18 , was held before County Judge
Quigley last Saturday. Court
convened at 9:30. : Miss Murphy
when ushered into the court rocm
seemed very cool and collected.
When the charges against her
were read by County Attorney
Tucker , her answer "Not guilty"
ring out in a strong voice fiee
from nervousness or emotion.
Coroner Lewis was the first wit
ness on the stand. After answer
ing several questions he was per
mitted to read the notes he had
written on the day the body of
Sellers was taken from the tele
phone pole where it had dangled
all night and up till noon the fol
lowing day. The coroner told of
the condition of the body and the
cause of death strangulation.
Hutch Jack at whose home the
crime was committed retold how
the four men ° had taken Sellers
from his house on that night , how
he had walked back and forth from
his house to the telephone post
where Sellers was , to keep the
coyotes from mutilating the corpse
and when daylight came , of going
to Clizbe's and phoning for the
sheriff and coronor.
Mrs. Baily , Mrs. Bannigan ,
Miss Lett Bannigan , Mr. and Mrs.
Dunbar , Len Kerns , Banker
Skeen , Lottie Calvin and Cotton
McGee were in the witness chair
and told of occurences and conver
sation with Miss Murphy before
and after the crime.
M. F. Harrington , special coun '
sel for the state , reviewed the case
in all its sordid details , when coun
sel for the prisoner asked for bail.
His scathing remarks caused the
prisoner to crumple in her chair ,
and sobbing was ushered from the
ourt room. Bail was refused by
Judge Quigley and she was bound
over to the next regular term of
district court which will convene
on Oct. 16.

Fraternal Picnic Successful.
The Fraternal Picnic , Corn
Show and Carnival held at the
park last week , considering the
rainy weather , * was very success
The daily program arranged by
the committee was carried out as
close as the weather would permit.
The opening address was made by
F. M. JValcott on Thursday , in
the , large theatre tent. Oa Frid ay
Congressman Norris gave a long
talk on "Reciprocity. " His au
dience heard many things on this
important bit of law making that
was heretofore unknown to them.
Mr. > Korris used many statistics
01 wheat prices on this , and the
Canadian side of the line to prove
that "Reciprocity" was against in
stead of for the farmer. On Sat
urday afternoon Supt. Cowan of
the experiment station , talked to
the people on farm conditions in
Cherry county , and of the exhibit
of farm products at the picnic.
Mr. Cowan gave Mr. McLeod
great credit for working up the
exhibit to its high standard.
Rev. H. McClenaghan of Madi
son , representing the- Woodman
lodge , gave an address on Fraternalism -
nalism on Thursday afternoon.
Short talks were made by-C. A.
Ruby and others throughout the
week. , -
The ball games scheduled for
the week were carried out with
the exception of the opening game
with Long Pine. Jealousy on the
pat.ofsome of the Pine's resi-
'detftstatValentine's popularity is
"the reason for their failure to show
-up on Wednesday. Sparks and
Crookston played a loose game on
Thursday. Score 11 to 1. The
game with Ainsworth on Friday
was a walk away for our home
team , AinswortH getting only'two
runs to Valentine 12. Saturday
'they played better ball and held
Valentine to 2 runs and making 1
The pavilion was crowded with
people every evening'- " for the
dance , about $500 being realised
from this source'.during the week.
The exhibits at the corn show
building were really something
Cherry county should be proud
of grasses , 'corn , potatoes , cab
bage , melons , in fact everything
grown in the north temperate zone
was displayed by residents" this
county not necessarily to win a
prize but to show others what
could be done with the soil in this
part of the state. The display
from the A' . M. Morrissey ranch ,
though not competing for prizes ,
drew marked attention. . The
women's section was very attrac
tive. C1 ' '
Sioux Indians under the leader
ship of Chief Hollow Horn Bear
and Two Strike , went a long - way
to add to the attractiveness of the
picnic. About 125 wagons were
in the parade when they reached
Valentine Tuesday. Camping a
few miles olu't of town Monday
night , thejr entry into Valentine
Tuesday morning was almost tri
umphant. Every Indian wore a \
smile that hasn't worn on0.yet , and
"Hpw Cola" was- heard on all
sides.pforn . ] Bear and his
followers camped on the prairie
near the park and came .up town
every day to give dances : They
seemed to enjoy tne picnic and at t

Mr. Bivens as Big Heart. This
honor comes to but few , and Mr.
Bivens and Mr. McLeod should
be very proud of their new names.
