Martini, who was employed by his
brother-in-law, Edward Lesina, on his
ranch near Glide, met with an accident
near that place last Fr day, which re
sulted in his death.
The two had
started on a hunting trip, being con
veyed near to where they intended to
make a camp, in a rig. They had tak
en their guns from the wagon and
placed them on the ground near by,
which, when the team was unhitched,
had beer covered by the harness.
Shortly a fter Martini reached for his
gun, which was a 32-special riAe. He
was in the act o f drawing it through
the harness, muxzle toward him, when
the hammer was in some way caught
in the harness, and the gun was dis
charged, the bullet entering the body
just above the stomach, ranging up
wards and coming out back o f the
shoulder, inflicting an ugly wound,
from the result o f which the unfor
tunate man had passed away before
medical aid could be summoned.
So many Drain girls are m arrying
outsiders and moving away from the
town that the editor o f the Nonpareil
has fe lt it incumbent upon him to ap-
peal to the young men o f that place to
do something to stimulate home trade,
The Nonpareil says:

Some very fine specimens o f berries
and vegetables have been brought to
the city during the past week.
C. E. Stewart, who lives just outside
o f the city, brought in a bunch o f
strawberries, 17 o f which made a pint.
These were accompanied by others
nearly as large, but in a green state,
and new blossoms gave indications o f
fruit yet to develop. Some o f these
berries were sent by F. W. Harrison
to friends back in Colorado to show
what this valley is doing.
C. H. Dyer, who lives in the south
east suburbs, also brought in some
luscious strawberries, eight o f which
measured an even foot. He raised
blackberries this year that were over
3J inches long.
The berries are all grown in the open
without any protection from weather.
Some fine specimens o f vegetables
are on exhibit at the office o f Heraen-
