Dave Crowthers, who was lost eighteen days on the prairie between Fort Buford
and Tongue River
, is in the city. Dave says he got pretty hungry. He found some meat poisoned for wolved and eat it thought he knew it was poisoned. He says it would not remain on his stomach but he cleaned it and eat again and for eighteen days lived or rather starved on such rubbish as he found about the old camping places, suffering terribly at night from the cold. Dave's mind still wanders at times but it is hoped that he will soon recover.
