Death of a Stranger
On Sunday, Dec, 12, occurred the
death of John Lewis, the funeral be
ing held next day at" the Gadsby un
dertaking rooms, Rev. J. N. Huston
conducting the same. Mr. Lewis'
death was sudden, heart failure being
the cause, He was a stranger in Alii-
ance, a colored man
, whose 'home and
relatives, if he
had them, were in
Interment was made, in Greenwood
Whatever may have been the mis
takes or sins of a man's life, we be
lieve that when he sincerely desires to
lead auhonest life he ought to be given
a chance. For this reason we, think
that Governor Shallenberger probably
did -the proper thing in "paroling Wilson
and Welch, who were serving terms in
the penitentiary for cattle stealing, as
many of our readers know. Their pa
role became effective the fore part of

Sad News from Siattli
The sad news reaches us of . the
death at Seattle yesterday of Mrs.
Kimball, wife of the chief dispatcher
at Sheridan. Her two daughters wruj.
afe students of St. Agnes' Academy
leave today4 on No. 43 to attend the
funeral, although tho sad news of their
mother's death will not be broken to
them until they reach Kdgemont. Opo
of them when informed of the serious
illness of her mother fainted, and it
thought best not to tell her of the fatal
ending of the sickness until after she
left here. The funeral will be held at
Billings next Saturday morning. Our
hearts are touched with a feeling of
sympathy for the bereaved relatives,
and we wish we might utter some words
of consolation that would, relieve the
anguish of their grief in the sad hour
of their great affliction.
Judge Berry Ties Matrimonial Knot
At the office of the county judge, at
7:30 o'clock last evening, Judge L. A.
Berry put the finishing touches to the
happiness of two loving hearts by de
claring, after the contracting parties
had made the sweetest promises known
to humanity, that Mr. John P. Sass
and Miss Katie Stirkel were husband
and wife. The bride is the daughter
of Conrad Stirkel, well known in this
community, and the groom has been
making his home with his parents,
