Dear Sir: Facts in regard to the controversy over the Cassoday lumber yard. About a year ago the Brandley lumber yard was turned over to me by Capt. Henry Brandley with the understanding that I run the yard and when we ceased business that I Bhould return hiin his original capital with ten per cent interest on the capital and the balance I should have for my services. Recently and during Capt. Brandley's Illness a suit was brought against me for a dissolution of the business and it was claimed that I had not properly managed the business and had allowed the capital to run down and beoome wasted and did not have sufllcient on hands with which to repay the original capital turned over to me.

On April 2nd with my attorney, met the representatives of the plaintiff and his attorney, in Eldorado and a full and complete investigation was made of the business and accounts and it was found that I not only hud on hand the full amount of capital' originally Intrusted to me together with all that had been furnished me since and interest thereon, but in addition thereto the sum of eight hundred and thirty-four dollars and eleven cents Uoon this finding a settlement was made by whioh accounts were turned over to me to the amount of the balance io my favor of the remainder of the property was turned over to Capt. Brandley who paid all the costs of the case and the receiver for his services. I make this statement not because of a desire to boast but limply to cor reot any erroneous impressions that muy have been caused by this suit be ing brought or charges mad. Your respectfully, Gko. M.

A Cloud Burst. What appears to have been a cloud burst ooenrred on upper South Fork Tuesday night. The flood of rushing water put the stream out of Its banks and did considerable damage. It swept the bridge above the Captain Brandley plaoe from the piers and caught about ten hogs and fourteen steers belonging to Bob Brandley and left another steer high and dry in the fork of a tree twelve to fourteen feet above the ground. The water reaahed the floor of the bridge east of town and did many queer things, as moving Henry Rogler's kaflr corn from below the railroad grade and depositing it on the othor side of a twelve foot fill.
