What is the matter with cement
side walks? The experience that
Hurley has had in this matter seems
to indicate that it is very difficult to
get any walks that will stand up.
The crossings in Hurley are nearly
all going to pieces and a large num-!
ber of the foot walks are no better.!
Within a few years half the walks
now laid in Hurley will have to be
laid ov^r again and this includes1

So far March has been mild and
beautiful beyond the memory of the
old inhabitants. The only complaint
is that it is too warm and vegetation
is being brought on too rapidly.
Should fruit trees begin to blossom
early in April it could be regarded
as little less than a calamity for it
would be almost certain that a frost
would destroy them later.

served followed with ice cream.
Those present all agree that it was
a very enjoyable evening.
The Parker Press-Leader states
that a large number of farmers!
around the county seat are greatly!
improving their roads by the use of
the King road drag. So far as the!
Herald has noticed there are no
drags in use around Hurley save the
one on our streets. Every mile of
road in the county could be in good'
condition today if it had been prop
erly dragged but it seems very diffi
cult to get the farmers interested in
this improvement.

E Mi Horald:
In as few words as possible I will
give you a sketch of my wanderings
since my la it letter. On Feb. I
boarded tin morning train at Trop
ieo for San Francisco. At Bakers
field ami Rosedale where I spent two
winters four and five years ago with
my daughter 1 stopped and visited
and had a very pleasant time. Most,
of the people there have given up
the raisin industry, which never
paid, and have turned their atten
tion to raising alfalfa hay for mar
ket and are also in the dairy and
poultry business and are doing well.
Their land has also increased in val
ue about one-third since 1 was there
before. 1 was told that a large col
ony of Russian emigrants inuri
South Dakota and Colorado had
been located on the dry lands below
Rosedale by some of their own
countrymen and had been badly ta
ken in, as land that cannot be irri
gated is of little or no value.

land was made in daylight a distance
of 300 mdes of Valley road over the
Southern Pacific. I spent four days
in and around Oakland visiting old
friends and seeing the sights of the
new San Francisco. I had a delight
ful visit with E. P. Moore and fam
ily who. has a pleasant mountain
home along side "Peters Hall" one
of the many fine college buildings of
the University of California at Burk
lev. In San Francisco I visited the
Cliff House, Beach, Sutro Baths and
the Museum, Sutro Heights and
spent most of the day in Golden' Gate
park. In the harbor between
land and San Francisco were six of
Uncle Sam's war vessels, among
them the South Dakota. It is won
derful how the new city has arisen
upon the ruins of the old and much
more magnificant and grand. Old
China town has disappeared and
two magnificant and costly buildings
have been erected by wealthy Chi
nese in the heart of the old town.
The ruins of the old ten million dol
lar city hall have been removed
down to the basement which re
mains apparantly uninjured. No
move has yet been made toward re
building. The Hall of records and
part of one wing remain standing
and are usen as offices by part of the
city officials.
I visited the Odd Fellow cemetery
near Golden Gate park where sleep
side by side one of my old school
teachers and four of my school com
panions. I next went to San Jose
and visited over Sunday with my old
Turner county friend A. B. Smith
and family. A. B. is still strong and
hearty and has the same old fashion
ed hand grasp for his friends for
which he was always noted. I took
dinner with John Wilson who with
his sons owns a seventy-five acre
prune orchard eight miles out of San
Jose. He said he could not afford a
driving horse and so had bought a
nice automobile to do his riding
with. I also met Mr. Crocker and
Mr. Case both formerly of Parker.
The next trip was to Santa Barbara
where I staid over one night and vis
ited the Mission, beach and curio
On Wednesday I again resumed
my journey and arrived at Tropico
the same evening having been absent
fifteen days and travelled nearly 1000
miles. On Feb. 26 I attended the
South Dakota picnic at
park. The papprs state that three
to four thousand were present. Tur
ner county had about twenty rep
resentatives. Among them I saw
V. P. Thielman and wife, Mrs. Bur
bank, Harry Sanborn and Uncle
Will, P. C. Fawrup, J. E. Engleman
of Parker and Ege of Centerville.

in stock
old a house and lot which he had
held for two or three months at a
twenty per cent advance. Mr. Faw
rup is buiding a new house on one of
his lots and plans to visit Hurley in
about two months and then the old
country. Sargent has a fine, large
garden. The have had green peas,
lettuce and onions all winter and
with a cow and plenty of home
grown eggs they scarcely miss the
farm. The next morning Mr. Sar
gent walked with me to Harry San
born's boarding place and Harry
and I walked a mile and called on
Mrs. Aldei man who always has a
warm hand clasp and welcome for
all her Turner county friends. Af
ter Harry had left his order for a
supply of groceries at a near by
store we went on to Los Angeles
where we had dinner at the Nalick,
then went to a moving picture
show for a half hour's rest, then
spent about two hours going about
the city on foot and visiting two of
the big stores. Then we called and
had a pleasant chat with W. IT. San
born, then down town again and
home by different routes, a pretty
good days work for an invalid and a
youth of sixty-six.
Monday morning the fourteenth
I expect to take the train and begin
my homeward journey, stopping off
at Parris to visit Dr. Sill at Albu
querque, N. Mex. for a two days
visit, then spend a week or ten days
visiting friends in Iowa and then
home to South Dakota.
Yours truly,

Everyone was delighted at the
open air concert given by the Hurley
band last Saturday evening in the
park. It had been so long since
some had heard the band that they
had almost forgotten that we had
one. It is a fact that Hurley has
one of the best bands in the state
and the Herald is much pleased that
the boys have decided to give con
certs every Saturday evening when
the weather is good from now on.
With the closing of the Staton
restaurant Hurley is without a res
taurant for the first time in a good
many years. There is a good open
ing here for a first class restaurant
and the Herald hopes that someone
will seize the opportunity soon.
There is considerable talk of new
cement walks in Hurley and as sopn
as the weather permits considerable
new work will be done.
Harm Temple, Wilbur Potts and
Jerry Fields are Davis citizens who
visited Hurley Monday. ,v.^ jt'V---
