Reports of death Irom the horse dis ease continue to come iri, notwithstand ing it was predicted that wet and cooler weather would arrest the progress of the disease. Nearly every horse owner who has not lost by the disease is liberally using preventatives of differ ent kinds. The movement of cars though the local yards for the first eighteen days of this month exceeded in number any similar period in the history of the road. Owing to the increased tonnage per train, the number of irains were somewhat less but tro number of cars has never before been equaled, not even in 1907, when all previous records were badly smashed. According to the heads of the veter inary department of the Kansas agri cultural college $6,000,000 will not cover the loss in western Kansas alone by the horse plague. These experts estimate that over 20,000 horses have already died in the western counties of Kansas from the disease and the plaguo is still spreading at an alarming rate evon into other states. It is figured that not less than 110,000 or 120.000 horses have died in Kansas and Nebraska, making the total financial loss to the farmers of the two states not far from $10,000, 000 to $12,000,000. Death of J. S. Clinton. J. S. Clinton died at the home of his s)fi Charles Clinton, at 4 o'clock this morning after a short illness. For a number of years Mr. Clintori had been suffering with stomach trou blo and ailments customary to advanced years, but his condition was not con sidered serious until Saturday evening. Shortly after retiring his condition became more serious nnd from that time he grew gradually weaker and and for several days no hope for his recovery was held out by the attending physician. Early this morn ing he fell into a deep sleep during which he peacefully passed away. Mr. Clinton camo here in 1886 and was one of the most respected citizens of the city, and during his residence always took nn active part in the betterment of local conditions. For a number of years he lived on his ranch near the city, and later was employed in the local shops. For five years his health had been such that he was un able to engage in active employment and he divided his time with his sons in different cities, hoping to be bene fitted by the change of climate. N Mr. Clinton was eighty years of agp. He was born at New Haven, Conn., and after his marriage moved to Grand Rapids, Mich., and later about ten years ago, he became a resident of Den ver until the death of his wife when he returned to this city to make it his home. To mourn him are left two sons, Charles S. Clinton of this city, and Ben Clinton, of St. Paul, Nebr. The funeral will be held trom the Episcopal church on Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock and will be in charge of Robert Cary Passes Away. North Platte people were shocked last night to learn of the death of Robort Cary, which occurred at Mis soula, Mont., yesterday morning. Death was duo to kidney trouble, which devel oped about a year ago, nnd though treatment was taken from specialists during tho summer, not much hope was held out for ultimate recovery, though the end was not so soon expected. Robert, who had been physical in structor of tho university of Montana, was up to a year or so ago an athlete, a robust spocimen of manhood, and while at Yale college had gained prom inence ns a track runner. Following his graduation he went to the northwest and later accepted the positionat tho Montana university. When ho came home to spend the summer vacation his kidneys were badly troubling him nnd ho went east for treatment. Tempor ary relief was given him and a couple of weeks ago he returned to Missoula. Wednesday Mr. Cary received a letter that hi3 son was in bad shape and ho was advised to start for Missoula,which he and Mrs. Cary did, but they only had reached Alliance when word of his death was received.
