West Avenue still holds th* belt, but we can claim some en terprising citizens down in East Wagner, who do not believe in letting one part of the town get an thagjory. The latest is the arrjval 0fa Prairie fires have been doing considerable damage to the south and west of Wagner during the last week or two. It seems queer that people will not profit by their own experience and that of others, and be careful about set ting fires, either through the thoughtless dropping of a lighted match or cigar stump, or for the purpose of burning a fire-break. Nine times out of ten the fire will get beyond control, generally occasioning a loss of hay, and sometimes grain, stock or build, ings. A couple of quarts of Geddes booze and two or three Indians from the Lake, who succeeded in getting mixed up with the said bootee, was tht cause of all the excitement in Judge Kaberna's court last Monday. Eugene Highrock was the complaining witness and James Hoyu answer ed to the charge of assault with a dangerous weapon—neckyoke. The hearing was more on the order of an investigation to find out where the Indians had ob tained tho booze, all of which was in vain though. It is getting about time for two or three fel lows to take a trip over to Sioux Falls, which will surely happen if this business of furnishing liquor to Indians is not stopped. Geo. W.

Frink waa called to Geddes Tuesday evening to investigate the sudden death of a man by the name of Wm. Shera. From tho evidence it seems he had gone to bed early in the morning asking to be called at eleven thirty. He was stopping at the restaurant near the depot, and when the time had arrived for him to be called there was no response. An investigation re vealed the fact that the man waa dead. Coroner Frink was in formed and went up on the even ing passenger, impaneled a jury, and proceeded to find the cause of death. It was a case of pre meditated suicide. He had writ ten two letters to friends direct ing them at» to his burial and disposition of what little pro perty he bad. The clothes he wished to be buried in were care fully laid out in the room. A postmortem showed that he had taken a large quantity of carbolic acid, an empty four-ounce bottle heing found in the room.
