VALLEY CITY TEAM PLAYED
GOOD BASEBALL AT SANBORN
The K. P. baseball team journeyed
to Sanborn Thursday and played the
team there at 6:30 that evening. Val

inning and two more later. Sanborn
was unable to get more than one run
during the nine innings, and the final
score was 9 to 1. The work of the
Valley City pitcher was of the big
league kind. The Sanborn Enterprise,
advertised the game as the sequel to
the "Slaughter of the Innocents," but
aside from the first inning it was
good baseball. Sanborn was strength

BUYS SHORTHORN CATTLE
FOR THE INDIAN SCHOOL
Fort Yates, N. D., June 2.—On his
way home from the East, Supt. C. C.
Covey of the Standing Rock agency,
stopped in Minnesota, and bought for
the Indian school a herd of twenty-five
head dual purpose Shorthorn cows, ten
pure-blood cows and four pure-blood
bulls. They will be shipped to Can
nonball in charge of Clyde Miller, in
dustrial teacher of the farm school
who has gone to look after them.
The cattle were brought from Fin
ley mcMartin of Claremont, and W. H.
Houlton & Son of Elk River, Minn.
These men are among the best known
breeders of dairy Shorthorn cattle in
the country, and it is a matter of
interest to know that the foundation
stock for the agricultural experiment
schools on the reservation are from
the best herds in the United States.
The pure-blood cows cost on an aver
age of $200 .each, and the bulls $150
and $350. The grade cows average
Mr. Covey expects to obtain an
other bull and about fifteen cows from
H. L. Cobb & Son of Independence, la.,
some time in June.
When assuming charge of the local
agency last fall Mr. Covey asked for
authority to buy these cattle, and has
since the authority was granted, been
in touch with the breeders in different
states. The selection was made from
the Minnesota herd after careful con
sideration, and will form one of the
finest foundation herds ever shipped
to the state.
