In some Oregon counties , before the
coyote bounty law was repealed , hunt
ers developed the business by merely
removing the scalps and then turning
the coyotes loose. The anlmajs be
came so well disciplined that they
would como to the hunter's cabin to
bo scalped at the end of every six
months , that tlmo being rcqulrori to
renew the growth. The coyotes are
easily trained and get so they like to
bo scalped , appearing as regularly and
cheerfully as a family cow imbued
with the habit of going homo to bo
milked. They relish the approving
snillcb of the hunter and trot off , after
yielding $2 worth of hldo apiece , foci-
Ing that they have gained a mark of
good character and can plunder chick
en coops and sheep corrals undis

A bad prairie flro raged Friday on

much loss was unstained. The lire
started , by a cause unknown , a llttlo
south of Charley Miller's ranch and
was driven by a stiong northwest
wind to a point in the settlement a
short distance from Napor. Several
parties along the south line of the
reservation wore burned out. Much

stroyed. IJy hard work the Indians
and other soltlors along the Ponca
prevented the Hro from running down

call , the flro burning to within a few

WINSIDE BANKER GOES HIGHER ,
E. R. Gurney , Well Known In This
Section of Nebraska , Goes to
Wlnsldo , Neb. , Ort. 31. Mrs. E. R.
Gurney and children departed Monday
for their new homo in Fremont , says
the Tribune. They drove the family
horse and expected to arrive at Fre
mont last night. Ed. wont over yes
terday by train and thought he would
get there a few hours In advance of
his family , but will return to Win-
nido the last of the wool ; . He informs
the Tribune that ho will bo hero the
most of the time until the first of Jan-
nary as ho has so very much business
to attend to. Thus another one of
Winslde's very best families have
left , mid while it Is a source of re
gret to lose this estimable family , and
a citizen who has always done so
much for Wlnsldo as Ed. Gurney has ,
yet it is gratifying to know that we
shall still retain his interests In the
bank. Though ho goes as vice-presi
dent and business manager of the
First National bank at Fremont and
resides there , as long as he has an
Interest in the Merchant's State bank
born ho will be interested in the town I
and it will not be like losing him en-
tiroly. The Tribune is glad of Mr.
Gurney's promotion in the hanking
business and hopes that he may go on
until ho roaches the highest pinnacle !
of fame and fortune.
Last Saturday ovonlngan impromptu 1
reception was hold in the opera house
In honor of Mr. and Mrs. Gurney , who
were so soon to leave Winslde. The
Idea originated with several of the
ladles Saturday afternoon and many
invitations sent out , in fact everybody
was invited and about a hundred people
ple from the town and country congre
gated and spent the evening in a so
cial manner. There was music , games
and a lunch consisting of coffee , sand
wiches , cakes and apples , after which
F. M. McElrath told in a few words
why the people wore there , tUo object
of the gathering , and praised the la
dies who were so thoughtful. To these
remarks Mr. Gurney responded in his
usually interesting manner , but as ho
said ho had secured Len Ncodham , A.
II. Carter , Sam Row and W. N. Wright
to make speeches for him that evening -
ing , ho did not take up much tlmo.
The gentlemen referred to did not
fill their engagements , however , mod
esty forbidding , probably , but Dr.
Curry had a few well chosen remarks.
Before the evening was over familiar
.songs were sung , closing by singing
"God bo Witli You 'Till wo Moot
Again. " It was a most enjoyable oc
casion yet tinged with sadness when
the significance of the occasion was
the paramount thought. Mr. and
Mrs. Gurney stood by the door when
it was time for the company to dis
perse , and received the good-byes and
best wishes of all their friends.

Valentine Takes Away the Hill Girl ,
Fourteen Years of Age and the
Father of the Girl Has Notified Of-
fleers to Arrest Them.
Crolghton , Neb. . Nov. 1 ! . Special to
The News : The olllcors of Crolghton
and surioundlng towns have boon no
tified to keep a lookout for n mini
named Valentino , thirty years of ago ,
and a garl named 11111 , who dlsap-
I eared from their homos at lllooiu-
The families live on neighboring
farms near Illoomllold , . . and Valen
tino's attentions to the young girl
have lioen against the wishes of her
parents. Yesterday ho Induced her
to accompany him and Ilioy have not
wlnco boon seen , so the supposition
Is that he has kidnapped her and
taken her out of the country.
Mr. Hill , lather of the girl , was
very greatly exorcised and has noti
fied the olllcors of neighboring towns
to arrest the couple on sight. If ( he
ngos given are correct and Valentino
has Induced the girl to run away with
him the penalty will ho quite severe
If ho Is caught and proven guilty.
A settlement between the two fam
ilies would bo the only recourse for
evading the penalties of the law.
Took a Livery Team.
Crolghton , Nob. , Nov. 2. Special
to The News : Later Information on
the Hloomflold kidnapping case has
boon received. The man In the case
Is Ilort Valentino , who has been workIng -
Ing on a farm near the town , and so
far as known , has no relatives in this
part of the stato. The name of the
girl is Grace Hill , and she is hut
fourteen years of age.
Valentino hired a rig at a Hlooin-
Held livery barn and drove away with
the girl Sunday afternoon at I o'clock ,
since which time nothing has boon
scon or hoard of mini , girl or team ,
and a charge of stealing a team and
buggy is quite likely to bo lodged
against the fellow along with his
other crime , if the team is not soon
returned. An earnest endeavor is
being made to locate the missing
couple and the rig.
MARRIED IN SOUTH DAKOTA.
Crolghton , Neb. , Nov. 3. Special to
The News : Hert Valentino , the farm
hand who ran away witli the fourteen
year old Hill girl from llloomflold
Sunday afternoon , was arrested last
night in Niobrara by'tho town mar
shal and Is hold awaiting the arrival
of the Hloomlield officer who will take
the couple hack to Hloomlield where
Valentino will probably bo given a
preliminary hearing under the charge
of kidnapping or some other law that
will bo applicable to the case.
To the Niobrara oflicial Valentino
said that ho bail been in South Dako
ta with the girl and that they were
married there. Ho explained that ho
wanted the girl to become his wife
and that she wanted him that It was
a case of love , and not an attempt to
violate the laws of the stato. If , however -
over , it is true that the girl is but
| fourteen years of ago , as assorted by
I her lather , she is not yet her own
I mistress and the angry parents may
j succeed in making it decidedly nn-
j comfortable for the man in the case
if they are determined to prosecute.
It may bo that the laws of South Da
kota will legall/.o such a marriage ,
i but the lawrf of Nebraska are out
spoken on the subject , and may form
a Imsid lor prosecution regardless of
the South Dakota law.
At an early hour this morning the
Hloomlield official had not yet arrived
In Niobrara , and Valentino and the
girl wore still in the custody , of the
