Many old-timers will be grieved to learn of the death of Frank Stillman Lusk, the man for whom the town of Lusk is named, at his home in Missoula Montana. Mr. Lusk was a pioneer of this part of Wyoming, and in the early days he played a leading part in the building up of this section. He was a resident of the old town of Silver Cliff, and was instrumental in inducing the Wyoming Central to build its line to farther west. He laid out the new town, which was named in his honor.
