They realize that one industry in a cotm mrunity or a comumonwealth is dependent upon another and that no industry may ihe injured without an injury to all.

An enthusiast who recently visited the spot described what he saw in part as fol lows: "Spearfish canyon, down the bottom of which winds the Spearfish branch of the B. & Mf. railroad, presents some of the finest scenery ever witnessed. "The Spearfish river is a perfectly clear stream of pure mountain spring water and through the Hills the fall is very great, so that it constantly rushes from boulder to boulder, and is lashed into a foam, maik Ing it an especially beautiful stream. "The sides of the canyon are high and precipitous, and the bottom is covered with spruce, pine and cedar, and other ever greens, as well as other vegetation in pro fusion. "The various shades of green in sum mer, with the general surroundings and backgrounds, combine to make this can yon an object worth crossing the continent to see, to say nothing of the other points just as interesting to be reached in a few hours drive from Deadwood or Lead.

"The underground parks and caves Syl van Lake, Icebox canyon, Harnpy's Peak, the Knife-blade and numerous others that miglht be mentioned, of which it would be isieed difficult to name the most beautiful and interesting are all around us, and we take great pride in showing them to our visitors whenever opportunity offers--all this aside from tlie wonderful mineral dis plays, mining operations, mills, etc. "An elaborate description of the va rious objects mentioned above cannot be given, and if given would convey little idea of the reality of what we might attempt to portray.
