ED CLOUD, IS E Jilt ASK
Have a Time
The Odd-Fellows had an enjoyable
time Monday ntul made amcasurcable
success of their pooponed picnic Post-
ponded uffalrs aie usually failures,
and, in some respects, the picnic Mou
day was a failure. In other respects
it was a screaming success. Nobody
was bored by loug speeches. Mr.
Barton, candidate for congress, was
present, and gave an interesting talk
iu the morning. He carefully avoided
politics, and confined himself to
matters in which all should be agreed.
Uq advocated the enactment of Insur-,
ance legislation by the coming legis
lature that would put Nebraska on the
same plane that Kansas and other
states are occupying, fie made the
statement that, since 1873, there had
been no lawn passed in this state in
favor of the policy holders. While
other states were active in protecting
their people against fraudulent insur
ance companies, this state was sadly
behind. Since the poltictil conventions
had declared in fovor of remedial legis
lation, he hoped that something would
now be effected. Mr. llartou has a
very pleasing manner, and he added
to his already large number of friends
in this vicinity. In the afternoon,
headed by tno band, a march was
made to the base ball grounds, where
sports and contests were pulled off
that stirred the crowds to merriment
and good nature. The Red Cloud Odd
Fellbwa proposed to do anything and
everything necessary to entertain the
visiting brothers, and they won out.
Wheelbarrow races, three legged races,
fat men' mens, and a tug of war pro
ceeded a genuine game of base ball, in
which the champions of the two states
struggled for the supremacy. The
Nebraska chapions could easily have
defeated the Kansans had they played
better. The same may be said of the
Kaunas champion. The game was not
decided until it was played out alnoe
either club was capable of making
eight or ten tallies in an inniug, when
It Bet out so to do. Iu fact, each of
the clubs achieved this feat once, aud
it was up to Red Cloud to do it 'twice,
but, for some reason the boys forgot
their cue. This gave the game to the
Jayhawkers. One of the strange feat
ures of the game happened in connect
ion with a fly batted by Overing. The
ball rose a hundred feet or more near
ly straight up and finally struck the
ground half way between the pitcher
and the catcher. Both ran for It, but
stopped and waited each for the other,
Likewise Overing waited. So did the
base runner. The ball was finally
picked up oc the diamond, and, while
everybody was figuring out whom to
blame, some one yelled to Overing
from the grand stand "run;" Overlog
came near making a start. Eventually
the pitcher, threw the ball to First,
aid the umpire, waking up, declared
him out. This was the aooasion for
much gibing at the umpire, who was
manifestly unfair in the opinion of
many, Overing should have been d
vised that It was bis privlledge to ran
before declaring him out because be
remained stationary. Had Orerlpjr
hit the ball as he intended, he would
have run as a matter of course. But
he did not hit it in that manner. He
had bit It, but couldn't tell bow he
had hit it. He saw the pitcher run to
wards him and stop. He thought the
ball was behind him, and was either
caught or a foul. Frauk Miser the
Red Cloud pitcher, who fanned out the
Kansans In good style, the first Inn
Inga, got his finger split in the second
by a vicious strike and was compelled
to retire from the box. The band boys
furnished an abuadance and variety
of music that made the empatblc charm
of the day.
It was a holiday. The people were
out to please and be pleased. And
when the people are in that mood It
is easy to find pleasure.

A Vacation Trip
luo advice of Honing Greeley, 'Go
west young man ami row tip with the
country' is still being followed for tho
west Is full of young energetic men
who huvo gone there with little or no
capital but who are doing well. Young
woutsn also from the eastern states en
dued by the large salaries offered, go
west as school teaobera but they do
not follow fhta profession long. The
great majority get Married and settle
down on some of the fine ranches. In
the Shields River Valley where I spent
the greater Pt of my vacation I am
personally acquainted with many of
these yoang home builders. The Dis
trict School at Myrcsburg has had six
teachers 4a the past three years and
every one of the young ladies have
married i prosperous young ranchers.
If sheewed -old Horace Greeley was
alive to day be would probably change
his adjrlqe tp, 'Go west, girls and give
your culture and your education to
ulvlliee and ohristlanize a new country.
On the way out I passed several
placet of interest. If you stop off at
the Crow Agency in Montana you will
see plenty of Indians and can visit the
Indian School there. The teachers
here are experts. They know the Ind
ian and aro readyjto give yon firsthand
information that is very interesting.
You will be very fortunate if you hap
pen to meet Mr. J. G. Burges, a miss
ionary who has been with the Crow's
for 'twenty years. The Indians are
very font) of him nnd call him: 'Talks
UpV.Hehasa habit of holding his
head higu while talking and this is tue
reason 1 suppose ror the name. Be
speaks the Indian language very
fluently and Is about the best posted
man on Indian custom I have ever
met. Whenever ho comes to a place to
hold service the Christian Indians will
gather outside the tent where the ser
vice is to be held nnd will keep shout
ing, "Talk Up" has come. They will
keep this up till the tent is full. Then
they wllligo quietly in and the service
will begin. The Indian, unlike us,
are not afraid of tho rain, and there
will be just as big a crowd out during
a terrible storm aa there is on a pleas
On the way from the Crow Agency
to Hillings We passed Custer's battle
Held. Here occurred In 1870 one of the
most heroic as well as disastrous bat
tles iu the annals of the American
army, n General Custer and part of
the Seventh Cavalry having made an
attack upon a large band of Sioux war
riors, found himself surrounded.
Custer was slain, together with every
man who accompanied htm into the
tight, but not until they had exacted
fearful price for their lives.
Before arriving at Billings we passed
through what la known as the Huntley
Projeot. A few years ago this large
territory grew nothing but sage-brush.
The Government has built a large irre
gatlon ditch which takes, the water
from the Yellowstone River and dls
tributes It over raanv thousands of
acres. The whole of thia territory is
now settled and little towns have
sprung up aa if by magic. Sugar beets,
alfalfa and potatoes are the principle
crops and tbey are all looking fine. r.i
When we reached Billings It waa
raining bard, but we stopped over just
the 6arae Billings is a hustling little
olty of about 12000 people. It can
boast of aa fine stores as any city of
its 'size In the United States. The
Sugar Beet Factory however is the
thing of which they are most proud.
The next town, Laurel has the largest
Round House on the Northern Pacific
between St. Paul and Seattle. Their
particular pride however Is one of
their ministers who is the champion
RifloShotof three states. Our next
stop was Livingston and from there we
went on the littlo brunch lino up the
Shields River Valley. Some day this
valley will be one of the garden spots
of the woild. The valley is fifty miles
wide. On either side rise great moun
tain ranges, their sides covered with
timber and their tops with snow. The
valley is watered by the Shields river
and abnnt a do.eu of Its tributaries
which furuUh nhumlnnt water for the

of his time with a noted hunter who
lives with his family In a log house
amid the great pine forest ou the edge
of the mountains. From hrn wo
took many a trip on horseback through
me passes of the mountains. It was
always cool for we were sometimes at
an altitude of 10.000 feet. Once we
were canght la.s snow storm and for
two hours it suewed hard. This was
on the fifteenth of August. It was on
thia hunting trip that we spent a
whole week camplca in the heart of
the big pine woods. During this time
we saw not a livlmr soul, the nearest
post-office was 20 miles away and the
nearest house 10 miles. I shall never
