Editorial Correspondence to the A Mora:
Dkadwooo. 8. 1). Oct. 3. Throe days
at Sloui City sufficed to fill oar measure
of curiosity for the corn pa1 see and the
minor attractions there to be seen, and
early Monday morning we parked our
gnp and hoarded a Fivmont, Elkhoro &
Missouri alley train for the boundless
west tound!ess both in. its area and nat
ural resources. A pleasant day was
spent at Norfolk, Neb, 118 miles from
Missouri Valley, s rapidly growing City
of between 4.(a and 5,nm) population.
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Iart, formerly of
Kock Inland, are nicely located there.
Mr. Dart has a wrll established real es
tate, loan and insurance business, and is
secretary of the Elkhorn Building and
Loan association. Mr. C. A. Mast, a
well known ei Ptvenoorter. is president
of the Citizens' National bsok, the larg
est banking institution in the city, and is
also connected with many other enter
prises. Norfolk has an excellent system
of waterworks, electric licht and a well
managed streetcar line, and we failed to
And one citizen who did not feel proud of
his town or apeak encouragingly of its
future. But this is a characteristic of all
western communities their town is the
best, or at lea-d will be in a short time.
An afternoon and all night's ride
brought us to Uapid City, South Dakota,
a towo which is generally conceded to be
on the eve of a substantial growth. It is
located at what might be termed the cen
tral gateway to the Rlaik Hills, on a line
between the mineral, luniWr and
agricultural districts. Although only
thirteen years old its inhabitants number
about 8,500 souls, and they are as hos
pitable and as courteous aw one would ex
peel to encounter in the effete east. Many
of the business H.icks would do'credit to
Ot'R OWN SECOND AVI.M'K,
and the residences display taste anil archi
tectural skill. Two daily papers disem
inate the news one evening and the
other morning. At the J.urn.il oflice we
were shown a large collection of the min
eral products of the surrounding country.
Among the numerous specimens were
gold, silver, lead, copper, iron, nickel,
tin, asbestos, hlumhav'o, lt Rnd coal.
The tin mines are attracting the greatest
attention at the present time, and hun
dreds of thousands of dollars have bern
e i pen del to start operations. Tine
timber at winds in grrat quantity in the
mountainous country !ing west of the
city, and there are excellent building
stone, brick clay and lime in the sur
rounding hills. All the business blocks
of the town have been built of these ma
terials, and the beauty and durability of
the structures attest the high quality of
the artlcU-s entering into their composi
tion. Both red and white brie k of the
very beat quality and finish are manu
factured, and great ledv'cs of marble,
red, white and variegated, are close at
hand. Thus Kpid City can expand and
enlarge to a great metropolis, without
going; outside its own resources.
With the oH-ning of the Sioux reser
vation, iCapid City will undoubtedly en
ter an era of uncxsmpled growth and
prosperity. The Fremont. KIkhorn A
Missouri Valley is the only road now
runoing to the town, but with the own
ing of the reservation the chances of sev
eral more are exceedingly bright
The Chicago, Milwaukee &, St.
Paul has already extended a line
of survey from Chamberlain to Rap
ids City. and the Northwestern
will aurely extend its line from Pierre.
The Dakota school of mines is located
there, and adds considerably to the edu
cational advantages of the place. Of
course IUpid City has all the modern
requisites of a metropolis such as water
works, electric light, telephone and street
car service, but the latter can hardly be
aid to equal
THE IPM.VES MNK
for comfort and facilities for trans
portation. For instance, the driver sets
the breaks while he goes to his meals, al
though he does not appear to inconven
ience the traveling public in the IcaMt.
Speaking of street railways, by the way,
it might be some satisfaction for Hock
Islanders to know that they have un
doubtedly the bt-t street car service for
any city of similar size in the United
States. The horse lines in Sioux City, as
an illustration, are us deplorably behind
the Itock Island lines as was the service
under the old management in the latter
city to the present.
The morning following our advent into
Rapid City we started for tLe far-famed
Ieadwood. The railroad terminates at
YVbilewood, and aa the train pulled
up to the station, we, with some feel
ta ot , noticed the big cumbersome
stage coar.h wutrh . v., t
the city In the gulch. After trunks and
similar luggage and ''Uncle Sam's" mail
bad been stowed away, the driver cracked
his whip and the six stroDg limbed
horses started on a brink trot. e were
ventursome enough to take the top seat
with the driver and tried to look com
fortable during the three hours' ride, but
on our return trip profited by the ex
perience and took a hack. As might be
imagined the country is very mountain
ous, but it has the merit of picturesque
seas. The day of the
FESTIVE ROAD AOENT
having long departed except in the
minds of juvenile novel readers our
journey was void of adventure or excite
ment, and we arrived at Dcadwood
thoroughly disgusted with frontier mode
of transportation. There being nothing
of particular Interest to see here, we took
the narrow image road to Lead Cltv.
about three miles up the - canyon, where
our trouble was repaid by an inspection
of the stamp mills of the Homestake
company. We showed our card at the
office, and one of the gentlemanly subor
dinates kindly piloted us through the
works, and explained the plan of extract
ing the golden nuggets from the ore as it
is first brought from the mines. While
the visit was instructive and entertaining
we couldn't help leaving with
a feeling of disappointment, being unable
to find any gold bricks lying around
loose with which we had expected to fill
our pockets. We were a day too late;
the semi-monthly shipment of bullion
having been forwarded the" dsy lefore.
containing bricks to the amount of
$275,000. Several other mines are being
developed in the hills, but the Home
take company are '.be largest operators,
their cash dividend since organization,
eight or nine years ago, being In the
neighborhood of five millions.
Of the general topography and inex
haustible resources of the Blade II ills
probably no more accurate description
could be written than that lately appear
ing in the New York Sun from the pen
of exsCongressman Cumminga. He
"A luxuriant growth of grass extends
over the whole region. The wild grass
- turns out tremendous crops of hay. Tim
othy, clover, blue grass, orchard grass,
millet, redtop and alfalfa equal wheat in
growth. Kye.barley, corn, buck wheatand
sorghum thrive wonderfully. A farmer
may raise grain in the valleys and bis
cattle and sheep find ample subsist

of the low hills and mountain slopes.
The valleys are lovely. Peaks clothed
to the top wiib dark pines surround
them. Crystal springs purl through
them. Thev bead in springs of the pur
est water, and they are fed by the snows
and rainfalls of the mountains. Many of
the valleys are under cultivation. G:h
ers swait the appreciative husbandman.
Ten years from now, when the tin
mines are fully developed, these valleys
will undoubtedly prove far more valuable
than the gold placers in the gulches.
Aside from agriculture the drainage
of the Hills sustains an immense cat
tle industry. Nearly l.OOU.Otsj cattle
browse on the grass bordering streams
that have their source near Harney Peak.
They dot the valleys as far as the eye can
see. They feed upon the native grasses,
summer and winter. These cattle mostly
escaped the rigors of the winter that
proved so disastrous in Montana and
upper Wyoming a few years ago. Huge
trains laden with them are beginning to
roll down the Elkhorn road toward
Omaha and Chicago. These trains have
the right-of-way. and frequently attain
a speed of forty-five miles an hour. 'If
you are ever in a hurry to gel out of the

hills, ravines, canons, gulches, parks and
streams, and heynd the circle an ocean of
verdure and dry grass. Just now the
view is dimmed by the smoke from the
Montana prairie fires. Great black
patches on the plains below tell you that
sucn nres are not ail confined to Mon
tana. Ihe farmers along the Elkhorn
railway mow the grass and weeds along
the track and then burn it. They thus
prevent fires that might prove disastrous
to their crops ami cattle.

Fquare nines, ana lie in the ex
treme southwestern part of South
Dakota. The scenery is magnifi
cent. In years to come they w ill un
doubtedly be a favorite resort for tour
ists. There are no trout in the brooks,
nor are there any lakes in the Hills. Small
chubs and suckers ate the only fish to be
found. The pine trees are filled with red
squirrels, but they are not fit to eat
They feed upon pine cones almost exclu

not much larger than mice. They infest

left. The deer are already protected by
game laws. Kahbita are found, but the

fur-hearing animals. A few quail have
been brought from The east and are said
to be doing well. Robins and meadow

Blackbirds hover over the wheatfields in
dense clouds. A strsy mockingbird is
sometimes seen, but he quickly wends his
way to Texas. The English sparrow has
not yet found this paradise, and the
ground chippy has the country to him
self. The climate is delightful. The sum
mer months are characterized by warm
days and cool nights. The air is pure
and wholesome; light showers are fre
quent; tornadoes are rare; the autumn
months are lovely; warm weather remains
until arter the holidays. It is asserted
that there are more days of sunshine in
the Black Hills than in any other part of
the United Slates. The winters are cold,
but there is littie snow. Sleighs are
never used. The mercury aeldoms rises
above ninety degrees in the summer. In
winter it sometimes reaches twenty de
grees below zero. The climate is espeo
ially favorable to those suffering from
pulmonary and malarial diseases. It has
all the good qualities of the air of Colo
rado, without the light, rarifled atmos
phere. Yon seldom hear of sickness in
the Black Hills.
The border days are past. The road
agent has disappeared. The Hills are as
safe for travelers as the roads of New
England. The Indians are kept on reser
vations hundreds of miles away. I have
been here sixteen days without seeing a
solitary savage. The people are hospit
able and entertaining. They are proud
of the country, and have glowing hopes
of the future. It is still in its infancy.

miners and laborers within sight of HarJ

was monkeying with Aladdin's lamp."
If it were necessary to substantiate
any of Cumming's statements, we would
cheerfully do so. The Black Hills is
certainly a wonderful country, as yet un
developed, but containing a storehouse
of treasure for those who come to seek.
We have seen enough of it, however, and
will take the next train for home, and
for the grandest state in the union.

It is unjust to tax the stomach with
burthens that it cannot bear. Many silly
people thus tyrannize that faithful ser
vitor until it rtibels and punishes them
as they deserve. Dyspepsia is usually
the child of gastronomic folly, but
whether this or the natural associate of
inherent feebleness from childhood, it is
surely and pleasantly remediable with
Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, the finest
and most highly sanctioned gastric ionic
in existence. As a result of the tone
imparted to the stomach, and the ins
creased activity of its digestive and as
similative action, insured by the persist
ent use of this benign invigorant, general
stamina is augmented, the nerves
strengthened and tranquilizer, and a
tendency to insomnia and hypochon
driasis defeated, Billiousness, chilts and
fever, rheumatism and kidney troubles
are conquered by this admirable medi
cine. Twenty-two pumpkins growing on one
