NOT OUR ED. WHITE. JAMES MURPHY DIES IN GLASGOW HOSPITAL Friday afternoon, March 10th, James Murphy, a well known resident of the Milk River valley, died the hospital at Glasgow where he had been taken from Hinsdale for treatment for an illness that caused temporary insanity. Funeral services were th held the 13th.

Rev. Molyneux, of that city preaching the sernion and the remains were followed to the cemetery by a host of friends of the deceased. "Little Jimmy" Murphy has been a familiar character in this valley for many years and had a host of friends in every town from Havre to Glasgow. He generally made his headquarters in Hinsdale and especially during the base ball season. His one great hobby in life was ep playing ball and if he could not get on the team he was always in evidence at any time the Hinsdale team played.

Base ball fans all over the valley loved "Jimmy" for his loyalty to his home team, as no matter how badly they were beaten he never took it seriously or got sore, as so many do. We remember Jimmy now as we saw him the last time Hinsdale played ball on the local diamond. He wore an old pair of overalls and a cap with the peak reversed. With everything against them and the score 40 or so in Malta's favor, Jimmy yelled for Hinsdale till the last man was out. James Murphy may have had a few faults, but his good deeds will live forever, and we are sure the Giver of all good has found a place heaven for the soul of 'Little Jimmy Murphy." FUNNY.

ISN'T IT? The funniest thing in democratic press of the state since the farmer's big convention in Great Falls, is the trying to explain away the situation of the state democratic office holders towards the farmers of the state.

The fact that both of these men were hissed and hooted when they were explaining their side of the case to the farmers in the convention, is proof positive just where the present democratic office holders are at with the Observer John E.
