The proprietor of the Picker ing has placed on the counter, this week, a new register, which is not only a very neat and novel one, but is supplied with a page of advertisements, printed in two colors on a reversable leaf blot ter, representing many of the business houses in our thriving little city. Last Sunday a Christian En deavor society was organized in the Congregational church, and officers appointed as fellows: Prof. Baird, President; Mrs. Proper, Vice-Prss.; Miss Barnes, Sect.; Miss Scott, Treas. This society will meet every second Sunday evening. The first meet ing will be held next Sunday, which will be devoted mostly to singing. The Pioneer is in receipt of a sample of native corn which was grown on sod on Ira Parke's farm south of town. The stalk stands fully seven and one-half feet high, and Mr-. Parke says that is just an average highth of his ten acre field. This corn was not planted until June 22, and of course, was not fully matured, but he also gave us a sample of corn which was planted about May 20, and it is as hard as flint, and well filled. This corn can be County Fair is Good. W. A. Orgain returned on Tues day morning from Miles City where he has been attending the Custer county fair, and, seem to be quite favorably impressed with what he saw. In an interesting conversation with Mr. Orgain we are informed that the fair was a great success, and, that the business men of that city are worthy of much praise for their efforts in arrang ing for this great exhibiting, considering the short space of time in which the work had been done. Mr. Orgain spoke in par ticular of the excellent agricul tural exhibits, which were pro duced from both dry and irrigat ed lands. And, as a whole, the exhibits were hard to beat. The horse racing was also a very interesting feature on the program. Having recently built what is considered one of the best race tracks in the state, eight good races were arranged, with liberal purses subscribed for each, one of which was won by Zip Bang, owned by S. M. Wills of this place. The following, in part, is taken from the score card; 2:45 class trot, or pace, mile heats, 2 in 3, purse $200. First two heats won by Zip Bang, the four-year old b g, owned by S. M. Wills, time, 2:34—four entries made. In the same race, Banjo, the six-year old b g, owned by D. A. Cole, of Glendive, won the second place in first two heats. Zip Bang was "big league,''how ever, in the last half of the sec ond heat, and far in the lead. Aurora B, owned by T. W. Berry of this place, won in 3-8 mile Tun ing race. Time 37 1-4. Leading a. Merry Chase. Republican: The fellow Kirk wood, whom we mentioned last week as having stolen several articles, made his "get away" af ter having paid his fine and was not caught on the other charges as was expected. It is thought that in some manner he learned that the authorities were still af ter him so he took a valuable horse belonging to Mr. Shotwell, a Milwaukee railroad contractor, and left riding the horse bare backed. He did not go far thus, however but helped himself to saddle and bridle from a ranch en route. After he had gone some distance farther he traded the horse for a mule—and has not been seen or heard of since, although the authorities are still for him. Read the full page ad. inside. J. A. Florence and E. Phillips, of Medora, spent Sunday in town. R. J. McArthur was in from the ranch near Alexandria, N. D., for supplies on Monday. Mike Gallagher and Bert Smith returned to Wibaux on Tuesday after spending two months out on the Government ditch. Miss Gladys Odell departed on Wednesday evening for her home at Gregory, S. D., after an ex tended visit with her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. James. D. T. Phillips returned the first of the week from Minneapolis, where he accompanied his three sons who will attend school at that place during the winter. W. D. Forsyth was here from Sentinel Butte on Saturday in search of an experienced sheep hearder, and, we are informed, was successful in securing one. John Ingle sustained severe in jury to his foot last Saturday, at Beach, as a result of having it run over by the front wheel of a threshing engine. But, however, no hones were broken, as the deep flange in the centre of the tire bore almost the entire weight. Good Crop Prospects. According to reports from dif ferent parts of the country the yield will average from twenty five to thirty-five bushels of spring wheat per acre, and in some cases it will undoubtedly reach fifty bushels to the acre. The yield of winter wheat will average between thirty-five and forty bushels to the acre. It is estimated that 100,000 bushels of oats will be harvested in the Cascade country this sea son, this being nearly twice as much as was grown there last year. The oat crop all over the state is good this year, however, and there is no doubt that the price paid for oats will be low. It is estimated that the Cascade county farmers will not receive more than from 75 to 80 cents per hundredweight. Colored Evidence. A lawyer, speaking of a piece of suspicious evidence, said: "It is evidence that has been tampered with, colored. It is like the lady's report of her phy sician's prescription. "A lady, one day in July, vis ited her physician. The man ex amined her and said: "Madam, you are only a little run down. You need frequent baths and plenty of fresh air, and advise you to dress in the cool est, most comfortable clothes nothing stiff or formal.' "When she got home her hus band asked her what the physi cian had said. The lady replied: " 'He said I must go to the sea shore, do plenty of automobiling, and get new summer gowns. ' ' Notice.
