Threats were exchanged (Cozad owed Pearson wages for the building of a sod damn over a year-and-a-half before). This confrontation would escalate until one of them, below, got a bullet in the mouth, that exited his ear:

Daily Whipout: "Al Pearson, from a photograph, c. 1881"

Big monsoon blew in on Saturday night. Pictures and video to follow.
