ear parents and sister I hop's this
will find you as well as 1. I will en
deavor, now, to tell you of my trip
across the continent, as I didn't have
time the last letter 1 wrote.
As you know, I started from nills
boro, Tuesday morning, Sept. 10 I
got into Cincinnati about 10 a. m and
took the Big Four to Chicago about
'noon. I arrived In Chicago 8:25 p m.
Tuesday night. -I transferred from
depot to depot on the Parmelee Omni
ibus Line, (by the way a fellow by the
name of Parmelee has the transferring
of all baggage in the city of Chicago.)
'I left Chicago on the Burlington about
11-p. m. late breakfast Wednesday
morning in Wisconsin. In passing
through Wisconsin, I saw a great
deal of fine dairy country. I saw
several fine herds of Holsteln cattle.
I arrived in "St. Paul,- Minn., about
noon, Wednesday. St. Paul and Min
neapolis are certainly two fine cities.
I left St. Paul about 2 p m, on the
On my way through Minnesota I
saw almost nothing but immense iields
of wheat. At every little town there
were two or three elevators. These
elevators, or the most of them, are
controlled by the farmers. There are,
also, a great manylakes in the state
of Minnesota. In one county, I was
told, there are one thousand lakes. I
got Into Fargo, N. Dakota, about 5:30
p. m. Wednesday. I traveled through
North Dakota Wednesday night, so I
can not tell you much about it, but
this state is given mainly to the rais
ing of wheat and live stock.
Well I awoke Thursday morning in
Montana and found my watch to be
one hour too fast, having changed
from Central to Mountain time dur
ing the night at Mandan, 1ST. Dakota.
The eastern part of Montana is noth
ing but a desert. Nothing growing
but sage brush and scrub oaks. In the
central or eastern central, is where
Gen. Custer made his last stand
against the Indians. I saw the spot
where he was billed.
The central part of Montana is de
voted to sheep raising and dry farm
ing. I will endeavor to tell you some
thing of the sheep Industry. Supposing
a man has 20,000 sheep, as many of
them do, some have more, they wll
hire 20 sheep herders. These sheep
herders will take. care of the 20,000
sheep. Each man will take 1000 sheep,
a one-horse wagon, with his provisions,
tent, corral and other necessaries.
Each man will go to different parts of
the range close to some spring or
water hole, and here be will nerd the
sheep, perhaps staying out al I summer.
The average wage is $40 per month
and "keep." His "keep" consists of
very little to eat and a tent to sleep
in. One man is kept busy taking pro
visions to tile different herders. These
.provisions are beans and bread during
the week and on Sunday an addition
of "Cincinnati chicken." By the way
"Cincinnati chicken" is just common
ibacon. As I said before, dry farming
is also a great industry in central
About 4:10,p. m. Thursday we began
the,cllmbof the "Rockies." This was
one of the most scenic parts of my
trip. At Logan, Mont., an extra1 en-
f-glne was attached. In the fall, the
Rockies aro at their prettiest. Red,
yellow and green, these three colors
blended together make as pretty a
sight as one would want to look upon.
Then the hugo rocks, balancing in
mid-air are certainly grand sights.
Hometaket fi,345 feet above sea level, i Board of Deputy State Supervisors of
Slso-the, highest point in the Rockies, Elections ' at Chllllcothe Tuesday,
long the Northern Pacific, was Samuel H. Pye, editor of the Blan
reached about 6:30 p. m. Here the Chester Star-Republlcan. had also
extra engine was taken offhand the
descenslon was begun.
Butte, Mont., was reached at 7 p.
m. This city Is certainly a forlorn
looking place. It Is strictly a mining
town, and there Is absolutely no vege
tation, not even a weed can be seen.
This Is on account of particles in the
air, which come from the mines: but
for all this, Butte Js one of tho richest
cities for its Bize in all the TJ. S. . The
greater portion of the world's, copper
comes from this city.
Wlien I awoke on Friday morning I
again found my watch to be one hour
too fast, having changed from Moun
tain to Pacific time during the night
at Paradise, Mont During the morn
ing we passed the northern part of
Idaho, and then into Washington
This state is certainly one of the
grandest and most progressive states
in the union. The eastern part Is
given to dry farming and orcharding.
The orchards are all on irrigated land.
There are several huge government
irrigation projects, as well as private
ones. The orchards and gardens in
this irrigated country are just splen
did, Washington being one of the
greatest fruit counties In the world.
About 4 p. m at Cle Elum, we began
to climb the Cascades. Another engine
was put on here also. The Cascades
are quite different from the Rockies.
They are covered with forests of pine,
cedar and fir.
Among the mountains the lumber
industry is prevalent. Every creek
and stream was full of floating logs
5.05 p. m. we started through the
famous Stampede tunnel, which Is the
longest tunnel along the route, being
one mile long In the center of this
tunnel is the highest point of the
Northern Pacific In the Cascades.
During thede censlonof the west side,
one can see the Northern Pacific in
three different places. You have often
heard about shaking hands with the
engineer, because of the crooked track.
Well It pretty near becomes true in
We reached Seattle about 8:20 p. m.
Friday night, five minutes behind
schedule time. I stayed over night
with the Pullman conductor of our
train at the Washington Hotel. The
next mornlntr I cot a trllmnse of Mt
Ranter, which Is covered with snow
the year around.
On Saturday I went to Bremerton,
where one of the U. S. navy yards 's
situated. There are about 14 cruslers,
battleships and gun boats in port there
and six thousand men. .1 went to see
Mr. Elmer Hulse, who Is county school
superintendent of Kitsap county.
I started for Bellingham from Seattle
at 8:25 a. m., Sunday morning and
reached there at 1 p. m. I started In
to school on Monday morning at the
Bellingham State Normal School. It
certainly is a pretty place, situated at
the foot of Sehome Mountain, so named
because the most of the students can
stand on top of the mountains and see
home, but I have failed to do so yet.
The country around Bellingham Is a
natural dairy country. Grass grows
the year around. Well, as this is the
end of my trip, I will close,

SHOT BY MANIAC
As He Was Leaving Hotel
at Milwaukee to Make
Speech Monday Night
WOUND IS NOT SERIOUS
Alakes Speech Despite Injury
Bullet Lodges over Fourth
Rib-Will Be in Hospital
For Two Weeks.
A desperste attempt was made to
take the life of Theodore Roosevelt,
as he was leaving his hotel at Mil
waukee Monday night to go to a hall
to deliver an address,
Col. Roosevelt had just stepped into
the automobile, which was to take
him to the hall and was standing wav
ing to the crowd, when a shot was
fired by a small man, who had edged
his way to the side of the car. Tho
bullet lodged In Col. Roosevelts breast
and Is imbedded over the fourth rib
In his right sjde
Mr. Martin, a stenographer of Col.
Roosevelt, saw the flash of the gun
and jumped over the side of the car
and overpjwered the man before he
could shoot a second time.
John Schrank was the man who
committed the cowardly and dastardly
act. He Is unquestionably crazy.
He says that the spirit of President
McKlnley came to him in a dream and
told hlra that Roosevelt was Mc
Kinley's murderer and that he should
avenge the murder. He had fol
lowed Roosevelt for a month looking
for an opportunity to kill hlra.
Col. Roosevelt showed remarkable
presence of mind at the time of the
shooting. He was the calmest man
present. Assured the crowd he was
not hurt told them not to hurt the
man that he was going to the Audi
torium to deliver his speech.
By the force of his indomitable will
he did go to the hall and make a
speech of an hour and a half before he
allowed physicians to examine the
wound. He almost collapsed from loss
of blood at the close of the speech.
He was then taken to a hospital and
the wound examined and Is now In
the Mercy Hospital, Chicago, .under
the care of famous surgeons The
surgeons state there Is no danger of
the wound proving serious unless
blood poisoning sets In, They think
there is little danger of this.
The surgeons Insist that Col. Rooos
velt remain absolutely quiet for at
least two weeks and all of his engage
ments have been cancelled and the
campaign of the Progressive party
must go on with its leader in the hos
Col. Roosevelt rested well Tuesday
nignt ana is according to his own ,
statement able to go on with his
campaign at once, but this the phy
sicians will not hear to. His appetite
is good and his spirits excellent, ex
cept he is chaffing and restless under
the restraint that is placed upon him.
Party lines have been obliterated for
the time and an avalanche of tele
grams have been sent him by his poli
tical opponents and flriends express
ing regret at- the deplorable affair, ex
tending sympathy and good wishes
' nd praylng for hls speedy recoverv
His escape from death was very
narrow, his spectacle case and the
manuscript of his speech, probably
saving his life, as the bullet passed
through these before entering his

The Girl From Rector's.
Coming as the first attraction in new
jeir, the farce comedy, "The Girl from
Rector's" opened at the Academy of
Music last night and proved to be all
that one could wish for in the matter
of fun producing shows. It Is a play
for those who desire a hearty laugh at
a good picture of the ridiculous side of
life. Replete with comical situations
and astounding revelations, it kept
luo auuience in a state or amused ex
pectancy and made them laugh all the
"The Girl From Rector's" as a com
edy, is a clever show and well worth
seeing, and It will be seen by good
crowds all the rest of the season
wherever It appears The Charlotte,

Mowrystown's Lecture Course.
The first number of the Mowrys
town High School lecture course will
be given at the I. O. O. F. Opera
House, on Saturday night, Oct. 19.
The attraction is the Fraternity Glee
Club. Too much cannot be said of
this organization of singers, as they
are recommended by both press and
public as being a musical organiza
tion of great merit.
From the moment they appear on
the stage to the closing act, there is a
rousing program on. They are a com
plete response to the wide popular de
mand for Male Quartet entertainment.
They have solved the problem ot
music in action. They arouse. They
thrill. Their voices blend in perfect
harmony. Theyv know the needs of
the Lyceum and cater to them. They
have a song for every one and every
one feels it. The Fraternity Glee
Glub is a friend maker. Their muslo
includes the classics and the late popu
lar effusions as well. There is an
, abundance of humor and their re-
sponces to encores are catchy and rich.
This Is the first appsarance of the
Fraternity Glee Club In the middle
west and the committee asks that you
buy tickets early, as the seating
capacity of the opera house Is limited.
