A cow-boy named James Boyd was killed about two weeks ago on O'Fallon creek
. He was working for the "Capital B" outfit, whose ranch is on the Sandstone. When last seen alive, he had just turned over a bunch of cattle to a brother cow-boy. The horse he was on was not very bridle-wise and it is supposed that he fell over a bluff with Boyd into O'Fallon creek. The body was found about three days later after the fatal accident. Boyd was a first-class cow-boy and all who knew him, deeply mourn his loss as he seemed to have no enemies whatsoever.
