Last Mondav afternoon considerable
excitement was caused on the streets in
front of J. IL Bartell's place of business
caused by a scrap between Ed. Plumb
and Ira Thomas. It is said by those who
were .resent that Mr. Dumb accused
Ira Thomas of trying to get his (plumbs)
little hov into a fitrht with the little
Noreisch boy who lives out in the coun
trv ind haimened to be in town at the
J 1 I
time. It seems Mr. 1 nomas was coming
from the dejwt about the time the two
little boys were having their racket when
Ed Plumb came out of the saloon and
commenced to quarrel with Thomas
which resulted in a fight, as the result
of the racket between the two little boys.
Plumb seemed to get the worst of it
from start to finish. One thingiscertain
no mao could utter viler imprecations
on the streets than did that man Plumb

A slid accident.
We are pained to have to chronicle
the sad accident which befell William
Francis while riding a race horse yester
day at the race track. The horse which
the boy was riding flew the track and
threw him off and in some way tha horse
hoof struck the boy in the head crushing
his scull so badly that his life was almost
dispaired of. It was thought by a numb
er of people on the gr ounds that the boy
was killed instantly but they were hap
pily disapointed however when the peo
ple got to him- The boy was picked up
and taken home and Dr. Phiney was call
ed to attend the roor unfortunute
suffer. At 9:00 o'clock iast evening the
boy was resting quite comfortable. The
boy with his parents arrived a couple of
days ago from Great Falls, Mont, by
wagon and were intending to go to the
Black Hills for the winter.
L. E. Dickinson, while riding his horse
in one of the races yeterday afternoon
was thrown violently to the ground and
in the fall sustained a severe accident by
having one of his hands badly smashed.
