His Recovery Doubtful
S. R. Richey, the signal service observer at Cheyenne, is lying dangerously ill in his quarters in the Commercial block. He has been confined to his bed for some time past with erysipelas.

Up to yesterday morning he seemed to be progressing favorably but last night a dangerous brain complication set in and Dr. Gray, who is attending him, expressed the gravest fears for his recovery.
