            Kuskonook expects to have a postoffice sometime this month.  A. Hoyt will be postmaster.  A mail route will be established east to Wardner and Fort Steele.


            The trial of Doyle, the Kuskonook murderer, occupied just one day, and the jury promptly returned a verdict of guilty.  When he received his sentence to be hanged, he said “Much obliged, judge,” and sat down.
