The day of the large cattle
ranch has passed. I met a num?
ber of "old timers," who used
to own or herd as many as 20,000
heud of cattle, turned loose to
graze at will and grow fat on
the fine natural grass of the
broad prairies. But these are no
more. The lands have been cut
up into small farms, running
from 1G0 acres to 640, and more,
<md owned by private parties.
There is, however, thousands
and thousands of acres of fine
land still open to settlers
"homesteaders", they call them,
and numbers of people from
different sections of the United
States, are settling daily all
through this great country.
There is a bill now before the
Legislature of South Dakota, to
allow homesteaders 640 acres
free instead of 160 as heretofore.
Should this bill become a law
there will be a rush for that
S t?te. To a man like myself,
who loves farming and the open,
these broad fine, cheap lands
look inviting, almost irresistably
so. But I must check up along
Rapid City is a nice little city
of about 5000 people, situated at
the foot of the famous Black
Hills. The town is modern in all
respects, made up of a popula?
tion comprising citizens from
every State in the Union, and
it is said, from every country in
the world. I saw two colored
men, a Chinaman and one Jew.

Rapid City has no street cars.
When I asked why, I was in?
formed that they had tried street

and abandoned them, and sub

there are a large number, and
they are liberally patronized.
There are good hotels, restaur?

SCHOOL OF THE HILLS.
Here, just outside about a
nile, is a large Indian school,
\iiown as the United States
Indian Training School. It was
jpened in 1897 with a capacity
jf 120 pupils. This present ses?
sion this number has grown to
2G5. The school farm consists of
1390 acres of land, 32 buildings,
chiefly brick. The school gives
instruction in all the industries.
There are 30 officers, teachers
md helpers. Uncle Sam is tak?
ing the best of pains to train his
wards, the Indian children.
Prof. J. T. House is the genial
md effcient Superintendent. I
xm greatly indebted to him for
:ourtesies shown me, also to
several of the teachers. I was
mown through the bulidings, in
company with Rev. Mr. Blod
?ett, the Baptist pastor, and
never have I seen any public
buildings so spotlessly clean.
Interesting, too, was the sight
if these Indian boys and girls,
young men and women, the
representatives of a rapidly
diminishing type of a once fam?
ous race. Only about half of
these 260 pupils, I was told were
of full blood. The other half
divided between quarter and
half breeds?some of the chil?
dren could not be distinguished
from pure whites. The names of
some of these pupils and others
are characteristic. For instance,
I heard the names of James
Black Horse; Miss Rebecca Fire
Cloud, Maggie Good Voice,
Thomas Standing Elk, etc. This
"School of The Hills" is exert

THE SCHOOL OF MINES.
In Rapid City is located also,
the "South Dakota School of
Mines," an interesting as well
as a valuable school. President
O'Harra was particularly courte?
ous to me, and took pains to
show me around and did not
seem at all worried bythe many,
(to him perhaps) silly questions
I a?ked. President O'Harra is a
distinguished author as well as
'.eacher. He has a number of
(ext books on geology, now used
in other schools as well as his
own. In this school is perhaps
one of the finest museums in the
Northwest, comprising minerals,
of all kir.ds, geologic specimens
and remains of long-ago extinct
anmials, most of which Mr.
O'Harra dug up and collected
?himself. He can read the rocks

ibut to him an open book. Mining

rest of my time and space to "a
little gossip" about the good
people of Rapid City.
I had the pleasure of meeting
many of them casually, some of
them intimately in the sick
room, in church and the social
circle. The atmosphere gave me
a cool reception -80 degrees be?

wann one indeed. Their kind?

marked, but their kindness and
attention shown my daughter
and her family, during her trials
and the illness of her husband,
were as beautiful as they were
unbounded and hearty. "You
