Chinook, Aug. 18--Funeral services for Richard J. Moore, who died in Havre Saturday afternoon, were held Wednesday afternoon at St. Gabriel's church in Chinook. Burial took place in Chinook cemetery.

There was a large attendance of mountain people and local residents at the funeral services. The church was crowded with the congregation, acquaintances and friends that gathered to honor one of Blaine county's leading men.

Richard Moore was born in Grey county, Ontario, on April 21, 1873. As a young man he moved to the city of Buffalo where he worked for several years in a large mercantile establishment. In 1898 he came to Montana and worked in the Bearspaw for about a year, being employed on the Frank Parker ranch. In 1900 he came to Chinook and was employed in the store of Thomas O'Hanlon Co. In 1903 he moved back to the mountains and settled on a ranch where he has since resided, entering into a partnership with his brother Jack in the sheep business. After about 12 years he changed to cattle ranching and a few years ago the firm dissolved and he has been ranching alone since. He never married and has lived on his ranch since locating there in the Maddux community with his mother.

Mr. Moore is survived by his aged mother, Mrs. Anna Moore, by his two sisters, Mrs. A.J. Barrett of Dodson and Mrs. L.N. Beaulieu of Los Angeles, and three brothers, Andrew and John J. Moore of Blaine county, and Albert Moore of Palermo, N.D.
