Chimney Horns Out.
The flro scare which caiuo as a

ment for n few minutes was causod
by tho soot In tho chimney catching

foot nhovo tho top of tho building
and sparks showered down on the
roof, Tho latter would probably
have caught on flro had It not been
for tho rain which was falling. The

who rushed to tho building. One
of the hose carta was got out and
pulled to the schoolhouso by men In
an automobile, Tho burning soot
was extinguished with sslt and the
only damago to the school property
was caused by tho breaking lu of

Incensed over tho disappearance
of his cat and accusing his neighbor
of having given tho feline away or
killed It, Daniel Illlxzard on March
7 annulled John K, Johnson; a
homesteader In tho Mllllcan valley,

Trouble Over a Cat.
According to tho story told The
Dulletln by Johnson yesterday, the
trouolo between the men, both of
whom have homesteads 25 miles
southeast of Ilend, In Mllllcan valley,
grew out of tho disappearance of
Hllxzard'a cat Johnson was ac
cusod of having given It away or
shot It. and It was this that led to
Johnson says ho did not have the
roof on his cabin and was staying
at the cabin of J, A. Hazuka, another
homesteader nearby. On Thursday
morning, the 7th, Johnson was suf
fering from rheumatism and was
still In bed at 8 o'clock when mix
ta rd appeared at the cabin and with
out explanation began beating him.
A heavy shoe was used as a weapon
by UlluArd, And In the scuffle John-
lion got iut on the Door. It was
while lying there that his eye was
kicked or stamped on by Illlxzard
i.nd the sight destroyed.
This done. Illlxzard took John
son's rifle and with a pick which lay
outside tho cabin broke the weapon,
apparently doing thla so that John
son could not shoot him. John
son said ho could not have used the
rlflo had he tried to, as he could not
Ilrliig Victim to Town
When llllzxard saw that be had
put out Johnson's eye, he waa re
morseful and scared. Ho hitched
up his team, put Johnson In tho
wagon and brought him to town.
The story about tho homo kicking
Johnson was told to hush tho matter
up, Illlxzard offering to settle with
the Injured homesteader.
Johnson, after thinking the matter
over, decided, however, that the
proper thlug to do was to tell the
facta and have llllzxard arrested.
So last Friday, the ICtb, eight days
after tho assault waa committed, ho
swore to a complaint before Justice
Lawrence, charging Ullzzard with
maliciously nhd feloniously putting
out his oyo, Tho warrant was
placed In iho hands of Deputy
Shorlff Vox to sorvo, but In tho

No Witness to AsmiuU,
Thero was no witness to the
assault. Hazuka was at Illlzzard's
house on the morning of tho 7th,
but In returning to his own cabin
ho went out of tho way through a
draw to look for a site for a woll,
whllo Ullzzard wont directly to the
house where Johnson was; and the
rracas bad already taken place when
Hazuka got there.
Johnson Is 22 years old and came
to Ilend about a year ago from Iowa,
where his people live. Ullzzard has
been In this part of the country

first persons to file on a homestead
