MMY ACRES IRE WIT Land Office at Lemmon Notified of the Withdrawal From Entry of Big Tract of Land. The Interior department has notified the United States land office at Lem mon of the withdrawal from entry of practically all the land remaining un filed upon In the Lemmon land dis trict, on the ground that the land is underlaid with coal. It is presumed the hemesteaders who have already filed will he permit ted to prove up on their claims with-: out molestation, and the land office of ficials are going ahead upon that pre sumption and accepting final proofs when tendered. The order came as a great surprise to the people of Lemmon. The order applies to about 4.000,000 acres of land, a portion of it being in the vi cinity of the new town of Faith. The Lfmmon Commercial club ealled a meeting to protest against such action and sent out a letter tQ other commercial clubs over the state asking them to send represents' tivea to take part in the meeting. The club contends that such action pre vents homesteaders from commuting their entries until after the land is patszed upon as to whether it Is coal or agricultural lands and this will hold up proofs for a long time. Many Bettlers have failed to raise crops this year on account of dry weather, and they are basing their living expenses for next year on loans they expected to secure on their lands after commuting. They have been liv ing on credit for the summer, and this will place them in a position where they cannot meet their obligations. Governor Vessey has been notified at a meeting of fourteen commercial clubs at Lemmon at which delegates were appointed from this state and North Dakota to go to Washington to secure, if possible, a modification of the order withdrawing 200 townships in the Lemmon district from entry. They also have requested Governor Vessey to accompany them. The lands were recently withdrawn on the (round that they were coal lands: DIGGERS UNCOVER NUGGETS Placer Ground Found by Laborers in the Black Hills. In excavating for the foundation of a bulkhead on Deadwood creek work men for Peter Trucano uncovered what may prove to be valuable placer ground. In a few hours' time several good sized gold nuggets were found and panning of the dirt showed colors and indicates that it Is similar to the old pay dirt of early days. The finding of nuggets caused some excitement and the spot- has been lined with people since, who are watching the progress of 'the excava tion. The gold nuggets were found on bedrock at a depth of about four feet below the erepk level. Trucano is taking steps to have all the ground he owns on the creek sluiced for its gold rvalue. Expert placer miners declare that In all prob ability the ground where the nuggets were found was overlooked in the early days. LAST BIG RANCH TO CLOSE Belle Fourohe to Surrender World's Title for Cattle Shipping. With the proposed closing out of the cattle holdings of the big VTT ranch to the north of Belle Fourche, the last of the large cattle outfits that a few years ago were so numer ous In that Section, the railroad officials profess to see the loss of title for Belle Fourche as the largest single cattle shipping point in the world. 'For nearly a.decade that town has enjoyed this honor. Shipments will !be un usually large this year as the drouth Is forcing all cattle owners to ship out every available head of stock. Many of the smaller owners plan to go out of business this fall for the same rea son, and it Is thought that future shipments after this year will not be heavy. BIG DEAL IN WOOL IS MADE Malf Belle Million Pounds Sold at Fourche at High Price. :Over 600,000 pounds of wool, the «Hp from portions of South Dako ta, Montana and Wyoming, has Just been disposed of to a Boston firm, the price being 20 cents a pound.: This Is a higher °figure, than was expected earlier in ,the season and was the re sult of negotiations by the Tri-State Wool Growers' association, with whom tbe different sheepman pooled their interests. ZTh« clip represents the wool of. thirty Individual shop men and was sold by bid. This it the highest figure obtained at Belle Tourcho tAls: season and Is firom to Vcents better than received by in dividual seller*. i-Jafafei M. ACTIVITY IN BLACK HILLS Extensive Development of Mining Property Under Way. It is expected that plans for the development of the property of the Victoria Exteasion Mining .company at Deadwood will be completed in about a week. It was proposed to Sink a diamond drill to prospect the quartzite formation, but this plan has been abandoned as more costly than sinking a^wine at the face of the tun nel at a depth of fifty feet. The win* Is expected to tap a body of high grade ore lying on the quartette. .General Manager Mai ten er hopes to have the property in operation this mont% Workmen are hurrying to comple tion the repairing .of the Gilt: .Edge Maid plant at Turner. It Is proposed to mill from 200 to"2B0 tons daily until estimates can lie obtained of the cost of milling larger amounts.... Ttte old King tunnel, about 700 feet in length, ta being cleaned out for inspection of Its ore supply.. The officers ofthe Gold Dollar Min ing company hope to have their mill in operation before:winter. The mill was purchased from .the Eleventh Hour company, and Is a finely equip ped cyanide .plant of 260 tons dally capacity. It is new stored fit the Crown Hill siding op the Burlington and will shortly be hauled to Annie cneek and set up. The Oold Dollar company is composed largely of Chi cago capitalists. The deal for the Columbia mine at Keystone, which nearly fell through when the $80,000 option given to Colo rado men expired without being taken up, is on again, at the same figure, it is understood, and it is likely the Manioii brothers, owners of the prop erty, will make the sale. RATTLERS INVADE HIS HOME South Dakota Man Thought Burglars* Were In the House. Aroused from sleep after midnight, 8. D. Perrigo of Dallas concluded there were burglars in the house. With his elbow he nudged his wife and, awakening, she listened. She felt certain thieves were carrying away everything in the kitchen. There was a clatter of tinware it the kitchen. Pans were falling and the sounds Indicated that tin dishes were being taken from one place and hurled into another. Climbing out of. bed and with re volver in band Perrigo started on a man bunt. Taking a lighted lamp along he opened the kitchen door and, as all was still, he listened. Then there was a buzzing sound and he took to his heels, retreating to the dining room. Reaching what he sup posed was a place of safety and look ing around Perrigo's blood ran cold at the sight that presented Itself. From the kitchen, and evidently at tracted ly the light, came a procession of rattlesnakes—six of them—one monstrous 'big one and five smaller. Jumping 'from the chair and hurrying Into the tedroom and closing the door behind him Perrigo dressed, climbed through a window, secured a club and re-entered the dining room to battle with the snakes. The lighted lamp on the table enabled him to locate the snakes and he finally killed all of them without being bitten. The larg est snake had ten rattles and each of the smaller ones five. INVENTS A WIND TURBINE Editor Expects to Revolutionize Mo tive Power. W. A. Williams, a newspaper man of Hutchinson county, has obtained a pat ent for a wind turbine or motor. The mechanism is a wide departure from the old style of windmills, in that it has one or any multiple of power wheels and can be constructed with from ten to 500 horsepower or mere. The power wheels are placed within a building, safe from storms, and as wind concentrators or sail's are used, extending out from the corners of the building a*- high into the air, great power can be brought to bear upon the-power wheels from a light wind. By manipulating the sails they can be made to catch the wind from any di rection. THE SATUKDAY NEWS WATERTOWN, «OUTH uaiwia. Williams expects to. revolutionize motive power by his invention. He says wind power is not, of course^ confined to any locality and is some thing the big corporations cannot cor ner. FIRES IN RANGE COUNTRY Mueh Winter Pasturage Destroyed In Western South Dakota. Prairie fires are reported between Grand and Moreau rivers in Corson and Dewey counties. This territory is yet "range country," and Buch fires mean the loss of winter pasturage, and the moving of large herds of cat tle to new locations. It also means loss to clalmholders and Indians. Sc faW'the territory south of the Moreau has not suffered, but-a blaze started in a high wind might mean seven toss. ,, TELEPHONE WIRES ARE BE ING PLACED UNDER GROUND- Alfho Water town.has not yet experienced the pleasure and con venience of using, the automatic telephone system like our sister city, Aberdeen,the Dakota Central Telephone Company evidently in tends to make extensive improve ents in Watertown this and next vear. Locai manager J.O. John son informs a reporter for the Saturday J^ews that his company will, in ail probability, erect a large addition to their present building in this city next spring It is the intention of the company to have an office facing First ave nue south as they, own fifteen feet west of the new OKtness block on that avenue. They wiH also build on their other lot north of the present telephone office The company now has a arge crew of men at work laying con duits along First avenue southeast *hru which telephone wires will te run to supply the main root of the entjre east side system. The wires will be laid in tubes underground. The tubes are con structed of a kind of fiber and are laid at a depth of three and a half to four feet in concrete. At the end of each block is a man hole by which the cables can be drawn thru the tubes. Three tubes are laid closely together in the concrete, but toward the end of, the line the number will be lessened to two and then to one. The company has already done away with the poles within the fire limits of the city and in some piaces has gone beyond the-"ire limit with underground wires, A conduit similar to the one on First street southeast will be con structed thru the alleys which are to be paved this summer in the business district. This is to pro vide for the future when it might be necessary to go thru the pave ment to lay the pipes. Friends in this city last week received the announcement of the marriage of Mies Marie Thomas, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Thomas, formerly of this city, to Mr. Howard Eopeset, of Esther ville. Miss Thomas is one of Watertown's finest young ladies and her many friends in this city will wish her happiness with the man of her choice.
