     It seems that when Chas. Kramer went east last fall he got married.  This much we have learned but no more except that he went back and brought the lady out.  Since he got here he has stayed so close home (strange to relate) that we have had no chance to interview him so have not learned the lady's former name or any other particulars, therefore our readers will have to be content with the bare fact that Charley is married and living on his claim south of here that he hasn't time to come to town.  The Republic extends best wishes and congratulations. - Republican.

Two Boys Asphyxiated

Glen Ullin News:  Two young men, George and Michael Earhardt, 16 and 21 years old respectively, met death in a well last week, Tuesday, being overcome by gas.  The young men were digging a well on their father's farm in southeastern Hertinger county.  They had got down to a depth of about sixty feet when they struck rock.  To remove this they put in a charge of dynamite.  The charge failed to explode and after waiting a reasonable length of time, George went down into the hole, being lowered by the use of a rope in the hands of his brother.  He had no sooner reached the bottom than he called to his brother to pull him up.  Unfortunately the boy had not fastened the rope around his body, depending upon his strength to raise and lower himself.  He clung to the rope however, until within a few feet of the top, when his strength gave out and he fell to the bottom.  He was still conscious and called for help.  In his anxiety to save George, Michael then lowered himself into the well, but the gas fumes were so strong that he too, was overcome.  The father of the boys was present but was unable to assist them and both were dead when taken from the well a few minutes later.
    The family located in Hettinger country about a year ago and are almost total strangers to the people of this community.  The remains were brought to St. Joseph cemetery ten miles south of Glen Ullin where the interment was made.

Body Found In Cistern
Woman is Believed Accidentally to Have Fallen Into Well

     The body of Mrs. Wallin, who disappeared last November and efforts to locate whom have proved unavailing, has been found in a cistern in the rear of the Merchants hotel at Lidgerwood.
     Mrs. Wallin was the wife of a farmer living ten miles south of there and had been in Minneapolis for medical treatment.  She suddenly developed mental trouble and was placed on a train and sent home.  Just as the train reached Lidgerwood the woman sprang from it and ran.  There was a blizzard raging at the time, and it was supposed that the unfortunate woman had wandered out on the prairie and had perished.  Search for her body has continued, but without result, until a hired girl at the hotel found the body.
     It is believed that the woman was going to the hotel to seek shelter from the storm and in the darkness fell into the cistern and was drowned.

     The remains of John Sutherland, the sheep herder whom the Pioneer made mention of as having disappeared last week, were found last Friday by one of Geo. Gerry's herders.  The body was in a washout which contained about eight feet of water, and from all appearances the man had drowned, but of course what the circumstances surrounding the drowning were no man can say; altho many theories have been advanced, the most probable of which seems to be that the horse, while drinking, had stepped over the edge of the cut and thus precipitated both himself and rider into the water.  In this case the theory is also advanced that the man might have been hurt from the fall and rendered unable to get out. - Pioneer

     Chas. Evans and Mrs. Zena Zink had decided to be married in a short time, but on Monday Judge Paxton came down from Sentinel Butte on official business on No. 8 intending to return on No. 5.  In the meantime it was suggested to Mr. Evans that the presence of the judge afforded an excellent opportunity to be married at once.  Acting on the suggestion Mr. Evans went to the hotel kitchen, where his intended had been officiating as cook for a few weeks and pleaded in his most persuasive style for an immediate marriage saying:  "Come on Honey let's get married right away, the judge is here and I can't wait any longer no how."  The bride to be said "alright" and the judge and friends were summoned at once.  There was no time to don conventional black or white silk with bride's roses as the judge momentarily expected his train, so the bride appeared with such hurried changes in apparel as she was able to make and the groom in his shirt sleeves with his trousers tucked in his spurred cowboy boots.  When the judge propounded to him the question - "Do you take this woman to be your lawful wedded wife?" the groom replied with great unction - "you bet your life."

      We learn of a double tragedy occurring at South Heart Tuesday afternoon.  Peter Christen of Sparta, Wis., who was well known to many Beach residents met his death there at about 2 p.m.  He was returning on a freight from Dickinson where he had been to close up a land deal.  An engine was sent after a couple of cars that were moving down the track and it is thot (sic) that he was standing on the platform of the caboose and, being unable to see the approaching engine, was not prepared for the bump the cars received when the coupling was attempted.  He was thrown off the platform beneath the wheels of the cattle car and at least one pair of trucks passed over his breast, death being instantaneous.
      F. M. Teal, head brakeman on the above mentioned freight, was thrown from the top of a car to the ground and seriously injured.  He has been taken to a hospital at Brainerd.

    Mrs. A. T. Dearborn died at 6 a.m. at the family residence on South Second Avenue after an illness of thirteen weeks.  Some two years ago deceased underwent an operation for a cancerous growth on the stomach which operation was successfully performed, but it is the opinion of the physicians that in some manner this growth had returned and ultimately caused her death.  For the past four months the deceased has been suffering from paralysia and rheumatism.

Murder On The Milwaukee
Railroad Contractor Killed and Employee Wounded

     On Monday evening word was received at Beach of a shooting affray at Beaver in the south end of the county on the new Milwaukee line.  From details we have received, it appears as tho one Sam Vanscuyver, a bartender in a tent saloon, shot and killed A. T. Guilliland, a contractor, on Sunday evening about 9 o'clock p.m.   States Attorney Keohane, Justice Gardner, Dr. Melvin and deputy sheriff Rouse hurried to the scene and found the dead man lying in a pool of blood with the top of his head blown off.  An inquest was held over the body and the coroner's jury found that the man met his death by means of a revolver shot by one Sam Vanscuyver.
     Vanscuyver was arrested by deputy sheriff Rouse and brot to Beach for a preliminary examination.  The defendant was represented by Atty. Crawford and the examination was postponed to the 24th inst.
     Rumor has it that this shooting was done in self defense, altho it is hard to ascertain the exact facts as carousing and shooting appeared to be quite prevalent in the railroad camps south.  One John Gass was also shot in the leg by deceased, A. T. Guilliland, some hours prior to the fatal shooting scrape.  Mr. Gass was attended by Dr. Melvin and later taken to the Dickinson hospital for repairs.

Gunder Syer (sic) Killed

      Beach and vicinity were shocked last Saturday evening, Oct. 19, 1907, when the sad news came from the Odland Bros.' threshing rig, at work west of town, that Gunder Syre was killed while attempting to couple the separator to the engine.  In some way he missed his calculations and was crushed between the two large machines, death being instantaneous.  The body was brought to town and Undertaker Davis, of Dickinson, was summoned to prepare it for shipment to Hurley, S.D., his former home.  Deceased was a young man of twenty-five years of age who came to Beach last March and located on a homestead.  During his short stay here he made many acquaintances and friends especially among the young people and was held in the highest esteem by all.  He is survived by a brother, Hans Syre (sic), residing south of town, and parents and relatives in and about Hurley, S.D.

Vanschuyver, Murderer of Gilliland Discharged

     The preliminary examination of Sam VanSchuyver, to determine whether or not the killing of A. T. Gilliland at Beaver of the Milwaukee line, on the 13th inst. was felonious, was held at Medora last Saturday afternoon and evening.
     Theodore Hannaford, who was the only eye witness of the homicide, testified in behalf of the State, while a half dozen parties, including the defendant, testified in his behalf.  The jist of the testimony in behalf of the defendant was that the deceased had assaulted and beaten up several parties just prior to the time he entered the tent, where he met his death, and was a man of desperate character.  Altho the story as to how the homicide occurred was not shaken, his testimony was to a large extend discredited by the testimony of several, that he had been engaged with the deceased in assaulting several parties and promiscuously shooting things up just prior to the fatal affray.
     Justice N. D. Nichols, before whom the examination was held, considered the evidence offered against the accused of too uncertain a character to justify him in holding VanSchuyver to answer in the district court to a charge of murder, and therefore discharged him.

Death Of John Current

     Seldom has death caused a greater shock to this community than in the case of Attorney John R. Current, stricken down in the full flush of his vigorous manhood.
     He was as strong and healthy as a man could wish on August first.  Three days later he was confined to his bed with an attack of typhoid fever.  In about four weeks he was able to leave his bed and resume his working the office.  On September 18, he was obliged to take to his bed again with a second attack of the fever, which seemed bound to claim its victim.  Encouraging reports continued to be received from time to time.  On Thursday his condition, while critical, was somewhat improved and it was the opinion that he would continue to gain.  He breathed his last at about 5:30 o'clock on Friday morning.
     His genial good nature, pleasing personality and affability made him very popular in this city where his presence will be sorely missed.
     On Friday evening L. R. Baird accompanied the body east to Sleepy Eye, where the interment took place.  The Masonic lodge, of which Mr. Current was a member, marched from the hospital to the station incident upon the transferal of the remains.
     Besides his mother, he is survived by two brothers and five sisters, living in Sleepy Eye and New Elm, Minn., and a brother, Dr. Earl Current, who is on the medical staff of the Minneapolis City hospital. - Post
