Notes From Buford.

Buford, D.T., Dec 17, 1877.
About the 10th of this month Gottlieb Lutz, better known along the Missouri river as "Dutch Louis", was drowned in the Yellowstone river, having walked into an air hole while crossing on the ice near his woodyard.

He was a very industrious man, and was doing well, both as a hunter, and in selling wood to steamboats. The men who were employed by him at his woodyard say they endeavored to rescue him, but found it impossible. "Dutch Louis" is from Switzerland, province of Schaftean Argan, and was formerly a 1st Sargeant in the 19th Infantry.
