Gone To His Rest

  B. D. Emery, a well-known ranchman of the Nowood, died at his ranch Wednesday morning at 1 o’clock, from the effects of a very severe case of typhoid fever.

  Det, as he was familiarly called, had just fitted out a freight outfit and had made one trip.  He had lost a horse and contracted a severe cold and went home to get some more horses and to stay until he got rid of his cold.  Five days ago, he was here in Basin apparently in the best of health but before reaching home was taken so violently ill that it was almost impossible for him to complete the journey.

  He moved to this country 7 years ago and had with his partner, H. A. Casterson, improved a fine ranch on the Nowood near the mouth of Broken Back.  He was a noble man and industrious and had the good will of all who knew him.  The deceased was born in Ohio in 1863, being just 42 years of age at the time of his death.  Nick Casterson came down after the coffin and the burial will occur at Tensleep today.

   Det leaves a wife and three daughters to whom the hand of sympathy is extended in their hour of sorrow.
