Peake and Freeman were land

stock range and had been camping
about In the hills for some time,
when their horses broke away one
nignt and after hunting for them In
effectually for some time it was ds
cldert that one man should tramp the
10 miles to Prosser while the other
remained behind to guard he camu
equipage and the saddles. Freeman
undertook the Journey. Since he left

There was an understanding be
tween the two men that Freeman was
to continue on to Walla Walla, after
leaving word at Proscer for horses
to be taken to his friend. This pro
gram he followed out. Peake was to
come an here as soon as possible
and was to express the saddles and
goods as soon as he could reach the
railroad. Nothing has arrived.
That was three weeks ago and
Freeman has gradually grown ua
easy. Yesterday he placed the mat
