Hot Spbings, S. D.
Since my last letter I have visited about all the places of interest
in and around this very delightful resort. Cascade Springs, twelve
miles away hardly repays one for the trip. The road is rough and
the least attractive of any about hero. The small town is not in a
flourishing state, work having been stopped on nearly all the 'struc
tures. A very beautiful bath house has just been opened, said to
have cost $25,000, with marble tubs and no end of modern extrava
gant improvements. As the railroad does not run within six miles
it looks very much as if a forturae had been struck. Tally-ho coach
es run every morning to Wind Cave. The road takes one past Battle
Mountain where the fight for possession of these Springs took place
between the Sioux and the Cheyennes in the Bad Lands.
The cave is really wonderful with the ninety miles of sulterranean
passages. It was here, you will remember, that Johnson the mind
reader found the needle after a three days search. The most pictur
esque drives are through Hot and Cold Brook Canons. The sceno
throughout the former is wild and is majistic with its wind
ing roads and over-hanging cliffs.
The Chautauqua grounds are well situated on one of the prettiest
spots of the canon. The Assembly held their last meeting for this
year on Saturday, when the Hon. John McShane gave an address,
and yesterday there was a large excursion on the B. & M. R. R. to
Deadwood and Spearfish leaving hero at 3:30 a. m. and returning tho
same evening at 9:30 p. m. Mrs. John McShane and party were
among the number.
Saturday evening's danco was the largest of the season.
On Monday, in honor of Mrs. Yates and her party, Mrs. Lellar en
tertained at tea at her very pretty cottage on the hill.
Quite a little muffled excitement was caused at tho Hotel Evans
by the resignation of Manager Hugh, but as Mr. Evans is most
anxious to re-instate him we trust it will be amicably arranged.
The ladies here at the hotel are having a progressive euchre party

An editor was fired out of church becauso in a spirit of absent

Why is it that moro glasses are worn now than formerly, and is it
true that "tho American peoplo liko to bo humbugged"' in regard to
spectacles? was asked Mr. Hallet, the well-known jowelor and opti
cian by a Courier representative. "Well," said Mr. Hallet, "one
reason more glasses are worn is becauso recent investigation has
brought to light tho fact that a great many head troubles, such as
neuralgia and headache are directly traceable to defective eyes.
Why, I have had people say to mo that they would givo anything in
tho world to get rid of the headache, some who havo paid out a great
deal of money trying to get rid of it, too; and upon examination I
would find them suffering from a visional defect which a pair of pro
perly and carefully fitted glasses would remove, thus removing the
In regard to tho second part of your question would say somo peo
ple do. Yes, they will buy of some traveling quack, who will make a
sale whether his customer is in need of glasses or not, well
knowing that he will not bo hero long enough to suffer tho conse
quences. Then too, they cannot sell a good article as cheap as we
can. People will got their eyes ruined by buying of somo peddler and
will then come to us and have an expensive pair fitted in
which they are in absolute need of, thus making it costly exper
ience.' "Then wo have a great many lenses ground to order." This
statementho corroborated by showing his order book in which wero
a goodly number of orders.
"We make a specialty of the Diamond brand but sell others.
So my friend," said Mr. Hallett, as he hastened away to wait
on some customers, when you want a pair of glasses properly
fitted and reasonable in price, come in and we'll fit you. Wo ex
amine eyes free."
