Grouse, Dec. 15 A telephone from
Cloverlaad received this morning
says whlto Ellas- Sargent's wo oldest
children were returning from school
yesterday evening, they stopped by
the way a-ndl were, playing! on 'the ice
on a small pond by the roadside.
The Ice broke and Aibible, the girl,
was drowned. Her -bodiy was not
found until 9 o clock last n-ifehb. She
was about 11 years, old. The; hoy was
found in time to save h!tm aiive but
badly strangled and chi'.led.
Ihe county court of Asotin county
in a special session, issued an- order
for every dog to the county to be
confined, so as to protect them from
com ng in contact with animals) sup
posed to b infected wi-hi -rabies.
The farmers Jm the Grouse coun
try are watching their stock very
carefully a It Is all out oni the
range In the canyons1 anld doing fine,
no enow and the ground soft. There
has been same stock lost, supposed
to -have been bitten, by coyotes
having hydrophobia, but no wounds
have been discovered so It Is not
generally believed that coyote bites
were the cause. Great care; should
be taken and anilmals should not
run at large which have been la
contact with coyotes, or which show
signs of deranigement in any shape.
We can't be too careful when it la
well known that something uncom
mon, is the matter with thosie beasts.

Boston. That George Glover, son
of Mary Baker G. Eddy, late head of
the Christian Science church, may
contest the will of his mother on the
grounds that she was Incompetent to
make such an Instrument, was the
statement of Attorney Frederick W.
Phoenix, Ariz. The constitutional
convention of Arizona adjourned af
ter being in session 61 days, and
finally adopting a constitution, desig
nated by the majority members as the
most progressive ever framed, and by
the minority as the most socialistic.
One Republican only, John Lang
don, of Globe, signed the document
and he was given an ovation which
lasted several minutes when he did
so. One Democrat, Ellinwood, of
Blsbee, declined to sign, explaining
on the final roll call that he voted
with the opposition because he be
lieved the recall as- applied to the Ju
diciary would destroy the Independ
ence of the courts of the state and
Invite the disapproval of President

of the document are: Initiative and
