A judgment for the above amount was allowed. The case was appealed to the United States supreme court and last February was affirmed. The Sissoton rights under treaty and annuities weie fmfelted in 186:5 by congress for the tribe's participation in the Indian massacre in Minnesota the y#ar before. Senator Gamble was asked by the ludiaus to take up their ca.«e, proving tnat the act was very un just as many of their people took no part in the massacre ai were besides of great help to the whites. The re sult is that a nice little Christmas present conies this year to some 1,000 Sisseton Indians, their descendants and heirs. A large number of the tribe, guilty of participation, fled to Canauu, and they and all their heirs are barred from participation in the rmney just about to le distributed. '1 he roll ha« lieen made up by Indian Inspector James McLaughlin and the money will all le in the bauds of the Indians ly Christmas through that officer. The Indians who will participate are now scattered all over North and South Dakota. A number of Indians were in town Saturdnj' and the news was re ceived by them with much pleasure, as although they individually ,did not participate in the distribution they viewed the conclusion of the matter as evidence that the Indians were from now on to get justice from their great father at Washington.

STOCK DISEASE Scourge 4jf Foot and Mouth Disease Moving West ward Washington, Dec. 1 —So serious has become the "spread of the foot and moil to disease among cattle that Secre tary of Agriculture Wilson bus issued special bulletin on the subject in addition to already quarantining three states, New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The appearance of the plague in the latter state has aroused the fears of the department that the disease is traveling westward and will soon reach Iowa,South Dakota and Ne braska, and other middle western states with large cattle interests. Dr. (J. A. Johnson, hea of the bureau of animal industry at Sioux City, who has beeu hurried to New York to assist in lighting the plague there, is one of the best posted veterinarians in the country on tne foot and mouth die ease, according to the officials of the Washington bureau. He will be re turned to Iowa should the plague ap pear there, for Secretary Wilson is especially anxious that the cattle of his home state be given every protec tion. Although the actual mortality from the plague in this country has Ijeeu quite low owing to the rigid quarantine and extensive slaughter of infected animals, it has caused great losses to dairy and live stock interests in various parts of the United States The disease is particularly infectious, affecting nearly all species of domestic and wild animals, and even human be ings are not immune. Children suffer as a result of drink ing the unboiled milk trom infected cattle. In such cases the symptoms re semble those ooseived in animals There is fveer and difficulty in swal lowing, followed by an eruption of blisters in the mcuth, and very rarely by similar ones on the fingers. The disease is seldom fatal and chiefly re stiicted to children and to those adults who handle sick animals er drink large quantities of unboiled milk. Veterinarians of the bureau of ani mal industry say that the disease among cattle should not be difficult of recognition #as a rule, especially when it is known to be in the vicinity. The combination of high fever, vesicular inflammation of the mouth and hot, painful, swollen condition of the feet, followed in twenty-four to forty-eight hours by the appearance of numerous vesicles varying in size from that of a pea to that of a hazelnut on the udder and feet and in the mouth, should pre vent auy serious or long continued er ror in the diagnosis. Unlike most in fectioas diseases, foot aud mouth dis ease mav attack tb« rame animala re peatedly. MURDER OF RIYAL Blacksmith on Trial at Hot Springs for Murder of Busines Rival St* Springs, Dec. 1.-Circuit court will convene here on Dec. 14. The case of most importance for trial is that of the state against William F. Stockton, charged with the murder of Robert Cramer at the latter's black smith shop in Hot Springs last May. Robert Cramer was an old resident of Hot Springs. Stockton came here a few years ago and was tirst em ployed by Cramer. Later Stockton opened a shop of his own, and the two men were rivals. In the spring of this year,the price of shoeiug was advanced by all the blacksmiths of the town except Stock ton. Stockton and Cramer quarreled over the matter and Stockton became much enraged, and at two different times attacked Cramer. Stockton sold his shop early in May, and had beeu away from town a few days, returning the day cf the mur der. Soon after arriving he walked by Cramer's' shop, Cramei not being in at the time, and was gone about half an hour when he returned. At this time there were Ave men in the shop. Stockton entered the shop while Cramer's back was toward the door, and Bred at Cramer. Cramer's son immediately struck Stockton with a pair of pincers,knocking him down be fore be could fire another shot. Cramer walked to a physician's office nearly a block distant, but died iu a few min utes from the lose of blood, a large ar tery in his thigh having been severed by the bullet. Stockton was arrested by the mar shal a few minutes later, was held for murder and has since been in the county jail. It is reported that the de feq.se will be insanity and also self-de fense.
