Mr Bortner Badly Injured
Wednesday morning about If
oclock II J Bortner who re
sides about twenty miles north
west along the Willow rode ur
creek taking his dogs with him
Later in the morning he rode in
to the home ranch in such condition-
that at is remarkable that he
kept his seat in the saddle The
left eye and side of his head
were badly bruised as if he had
been thrown from his horse He
was taken into the house and a
physician summoned One of his
dogs returned with him all cut
up and another didnt get back
for several hours Mr Bornters
sons went up the creek and
found a large coyote that had ev
idently been killed by -the dogs
Nothing definite could be gotten
from Mr Bortner avIio was in a
completely dazed condition but
lie spoke vaguely of a big
fight The theory is that Mr
Bortner and his dogs killed the
coyote and that his horse became
frightened and threw him as he
tried to carry the dead animal
awav with him on the saddle

Another Party
Investigation so far has only
brought to light the fact that a
third party is involved in the
cheek forging of recent date It
now appears that Jake Eicman
the payee of the checks is not
the artist who forged them but
another party forged both the
name of the payee and of the
drawer of the cheeks He has
not as yet been apprehended
