A Chadron dispatch says that the evidence against Goodshot, husband of the woman whose body was found so badly mutilated on the Pine Ridge reservation, was so strong that he has been arrested for the murder of his wife. He was taken to Deadwood to await trial. It is the first instance on record of a crime of this description where an Indian has killed his squaw, and promises to be an exciting time when he is tried.

Torrington Telegram (Torrington, WY) 4 Jun 1908


From the Rapid City Journal we learn that a body in an advanced stage of decomposition was found in a deep gulch near that place recently. It is impossible to say whether this was a case of murder or suicide. The body was identified as that of a miner named McCammon, aged about 50 years, who left the employ of the Meade Hydraulic company about the 10th of May last. We are inclined to doubt the theory of suicide, as no weapon of death has been found in the vicinity of the body.

Woman at Edgar Badly Burned

Edgar, Neb., Oct. 2—Mrs. W. L. Cutter was seriously burned Tuesday while blacking a stove with some kind of liquid blacking. The fire in the stove had gone nearly out, but the stove was still hot enough to ignite the blacking which caught immediately to her clothing and before the flames could be extinguished she was badly burned on the right side of the face, right shoulder and arm and the right side, especially about the waist, where she is deeply burned.
