of u devoted husband , widow , heart ?
broken , seeks solitude in the wilds of
western Dakota , files on n claim ,
meets cowboy , falls In love , marries ,
goes on honeymoon , returns and sues
for divorce. Such Is the lot of one
of the prominent citizens of Bone-

were among its most highly respected
citizens. Last spring Mr. Hyer took

be settled up Mrs. Ilyer , together with
her mother , left for Mead county ,
South Dakota , where they filed on a
claim something over sixty miles from
a railroad near the town of Bixhy.
It was hero that Mrs. Hyer met a
cowboy , Howard Luther by name , who
had also had the misfortune to lose
his mate , he , however , by the divorce
route. They fell in love and they
knew it , for on their second meeting
they were engaged and on their third
meeting they mounted their broncos
and hied themselves to Dcadsvood ,
where they were married. Mr. Luther
had a claim and a few cattle. Mrs.
Luther some money recently received
in way of life Insurance , which condi
tion prompt ; u the newly wed to take
an extended trip to the coast , taking

places of interest. All went well un
til Seattle was reached. At this
point Mr. Luther met a couple of his
old-time cronies from the plains of
South Dakota and the result was a
good old time spree , during which a
little "shooting up the town" was In
dulged In. This stunt was too much
for Mrs. Luther , who on her return

In that period of stress and privation ,
but the cost in human suffering Is held
by the war department officials to have
been out of all proportion to the ben
efits derived. And besides they are
now convinced that all of real utility
taught to the militiamen could just as
well have been Imparted through other
means and without filling the hospital
