the scene and took the man into cus

The purchaser is Matthew Birgen, of

$200. Mr. Reedy claims the distinc
tion of being the first to bring thor
oughbred cattle into the state. This

which is now dispeised, is the result of

explains the fact cf the high prices.

Given a Priaon Term at the
Hands of Judge
Carl&ndi
Sioux Falls, March 22.—One of the
smoothest swindlers wno ever operated
in Scnth Dakota has just received de
served punishment at the hands of
Judge Carland of the federal court.
Albert J. Moore, alias J. L. Ferguson,
who was brought from Deadwood a
day or two ago by United States Mar
shal Seth Bullock, entered a plea of
guilty to the charge of using the
United States mails with intent to
det'rand. Judge Carland sentenced
him to a term of one and one half years
in the penitentiary and imposed a fine
of $100. Moore recently completed a
term in the Montana penitentiary for
raising a postofflce order, and immedi
ately upon completing his term was re
arrested aud turned over to the United
States authorities of South Dakota.
Moore appealed at Deadwood in 1905
and announced that he intended invest
ing in mining enterprises. Shortly ai
ter his arrival the postofflce authorities
became suspicious of him, owing tu
the volume of his mail. He received
large nnmiters of letters under one of
his aliases, addressed to him as presi
dent or general manager of the Imper
ial Globe Mining & Leasing company
—a purely fictitious concern.
The postofflce department issued a
fraud order against him, which tied up
several hundred letters containing
money from people in Missouri. Ac
cording to the inspectors of the post
office department who investigated the
case, Moore's scheme was to write in
dividuals that he was tne executor of
the estate of a man who had died re
cently, leaving $80,000 worth of gov
ernment t.ouds.
In most cases he told the victims*
that there was a certain gum of money,
usually about |10, due on the bondi
and that the victim, who was pictured
as an heir, could secure them by the
payment of that amount. When offi
cers went to arrest him he lccked
the door of his room and, before it
could be broken open,made his escape
No trace of him was found until it
was learned he waa in tho Montana
penitentiary.
HEALTHY
SHEEP
No Disease Found in Flocks of
South Dakota Sheep
men
Deadwood, March 22.—Dr. S.E. Cos
ford, of Rapid City, chief inspector for
the government bureau of animal in
dnstiy for Soutd Dakota, who has been
iu Deadwood for the past two days,
calls attention to the fact that the
sheepmen of this state have entirely
escaped the lueses which disease has
wrought among the docks in Montana
and Wyoming. The authorities here,
on the breaking out of the disorder iD
the neighboiing states, used extraordi
ary precautions to safeguard the terri
tory under their supervision, and their
efforts were eminently successful. Not
only have the South Dakota sheep
avoided the peculiar disease which has
teen prevailing in Wyoming and Mon
tana, but they nave wintered well,
have not had to coutend with severe
cold and deep snow and have been able
to find good feed throughout the win
ter.
In Wyoming and especially in the
Red Desert country, the losses have
leen immense and many of the sheep
men will be practically put out of
business. It is said that in one little
town in the Red Desert country a re
markable sight was in evidence during
the worst of the recent storm. Thou
sands of sheep had been driven in from
all directions and were congregated in
the town seeking shelter. On the lee
ward side of every building in the
place, packed tightly against the wall
and stretching out in a wedge shaped
mass, until the ones further from the
building wonld get the wind from ooth
sides.

birthday gift, you will always find

Dakota A Prbsperous
Year Indicated
WtofftM. Minn., March 22.—A. C.
Johnson, general agent of the Chicago
& Northwestern Railway ccmpany,
will this year make crop reports for the
twenty fifth consecutive years for the
territory along this line of western
Minnesota aud South Dakota.
Mr. Johnson has just returned from
a trip to the termini in South Dakota.
The crop reports this year will start
about the first of April. All the snow
disappeared iu South Dakota laBt week,
but early this week there was a fresh
fall of four inches,which is still on the
gound.
The precipitation this winter has
been much heavier than for years and
as a result rhere will be plenty of mois
ture. Mr. Johnson is pleased with the
outlook all along the line.
Arrangements have been made for
complete crop reports. The weather
conditions, local end geueral,are sent
111 from all along the line,and in addi
tion special reports are received from
those skilled In knowledge of crop con
ditions. Mr. Johnson himself has per
sonal knowledge of almost every town
ship along the road.
Mr. Johnson predicts that the year
will be a big one in the influx of new
stetlers into South Dakota. Already,
he says, records along this line have
leeu broken. Ou the first twelve days
of^March there were 5:17 cars of imi
grants taken into Sooth Dakota.
There is high water in South Dako
ta, due to the spring breakup. Along
the James river there has been no ser
ions damage done, but at Chamberlain
on the Missouri river the Milwaukee

Few Developments in Sharon
Kidnapping Case.
CONFLICTING STATEMENTS
According to Detectivea a Fourth Lat
ter Has Bean Received From the
Abductors, but the Father of the
Boy Denies This and 8ays He Hae
Discharged the Police and Private
"Sleutha" In His Employ.
Sharon, Pa., March 23.—Conflicting
statements issued by detectives and
Mr. Whitla greatly confused newspa
per men at work on the kidnapping
case.
According to the detectives a fourth
letter has been received from the ab
ductors and their capture, they ai
lege, is only a matter of a few hours.
Although this statement from detec
tives was made immediately following
a conference with Mr. Whitla and
while the officers were still in Mr.
Whitla's office the missing lad's
father the next instant called the
newspaper men into his private office
and told them he had discharged all
the detectives and In the future did
not desire or want the services of the
itolice.
When the detectives and Mr.
Whitla were told of the statements
made by each other apparently all
were surprised.
Detective Perkins of Pittsburg is
responsible for the assertion that a
fourth letter has been received by
Mr. Whitla from his boy's captors.
The letter, he says. Is postmarked
Cleveland, O. He further said a de
tective has been sent to Cleveland.
In his statement Mr. W'hltla says
there are absolutely no new develop
ments In the case. All he wants, he
says, is to get Into communication
with the abductors and he has dis
charged all the police and detectives
In his employ. Mr. Whitla also con
veys the information that he lias of
fered no reward, nor does he Intend
to do so. All that he wants, he says,
is the boy and he Is willing to deal
with the kidnappers and pay the $10,
000 ransom at any time. In conclu
sion the statement is to the efTect tha'
Mr. and Mrs. Whitla are holding up
as well under the circumstances as
could be expected.
So far nothing has been heard from
the three squads of state constabulary
who are engaged In running dow::.
