DEALT A DEATH BLOW
An Old Feud on the Spade Ronch
Ends in Murder.
An old feud between two employes on
the Sp.idc ranch In Cherry county wai the
cause of a murder last Sunday morning
trom information received, it apponrs that
the parties implicated. Dennis J. Wooford
and James Rinchart, wore at work at a
distant part of the range at cattle dipping.
The old grudge was renewed and hot
wprds were exchanged Wooford finally
withdrew and securing a club or heavy
piece of timber stealthily crept upon
Binohart, dealt him such a tcrrifficblovyon
Jhe head as to knock him to the ground.
Like Cain of old, Wooford's passion was
changed into horror over what lie did.
A second thought, the murderer raised the.
almost lifeless head of Rinehart realiz
ing his awful deed and with the blood of his
brother on his hands mounted his horse
aDd again like the first murderer in the
human race, hurried from the scene, but
was later overtaken and captured by other
employes on the ranch and turned over to
the authorities the next day No one
saw the murder, as it was a short distance
from where others of the outfit were at
work. Rinehart was taken to Ellsworth
and conveyed to this city on train No 45,
arriving at it o'clock the same morning.
At Dr. Bellwood's olfice an examination
was made of Rinohart's injury and it was
soon learned to be of a fatal nature. At
12 10 the injured man died, never regain
ing consciousness. The remains were
taken to Lockwooi's undertaking establis
ment and an inquest held by Coroner
Moore with the following jury, F. K.
Holstcn, C A, Newberrv, F. Mollring,
J. S McKiney, Guy Lockwood and Geo.
V. Clark. Witnesses from the scene of
the murder were Claude Morton, Alex.
Ogleby, Albert Bayred and Patrick Welch
also the evidence of Drs. Uellwoodand
Hettleheim who tended .Rinehart. The
verdict of the jury was to the effect that
deceased came to his death from a blow 011
the head delivered by an unknown party.
Rinehart had been employed on the
Spade ranch for a year or more but went
under the appellation of James Cummins.
It is said he has relatives living at Akron,
Ohio, and the remains were held awaiting
word from them. There being no reply to
the message sent to Akron, the funeral
took place Tuesday and the body interred
in Greenwood cemetery. Richards &
Comstock, owners of the Spade ranch,
through their resident manager, Chas. C.
Jameson, it is said, would pay the expense
incurred in the death and burial of the
Of Wooford, the murderer, little is
'known and his associates on the ranch say
that he was of a retired disposition and
never gave out any information of his past

postponed their chicken-pie supper to
