FRIDAY -JUDY 11, 1913 NUMBER 26 lie Round-Up Was a Saccass The Big Round-Up at Miles City on the 4-4-6, pioved very successful indeed. A represen tation of days gone by was giv en and plenty of amusement of all kinds was in store for those who took in the sights during those days. A great many Wi baux people went to Miles City, bn the 3rd- while others stayed until the morning of the 4th when No. 5 was stopped to take them-on,. The 4th proved to be the best day and all the stunts were pulled off as per schedule. One of the features of the big celebration was that the Wi baux band was hired for the oc casion and they made a "hit" with every one as they played the very latest music and they kept at it throughout the day and Evening! While we were there we overheard we over heard a great many complimen tary , remarks about the band' and the exceptionally good mu sic they were furnishing: As the band marched through the streets.' one could hear the re mark ' 'Hurrah for Wiboux" on all sides and from what we infer,, tba Wibaux has a great many friends in other parts of this great state. v , , 1 / / Another feature was 'the play given by the Elks eutitled the "Yellow Girl". This proved a treat indeed for it was a great deal better than the majority . of plays one sees in the large cities. It was made up of local talent and if one was not aware of this fact, it would have been un noticeable, for they all played: their parts exceptionally we}!.. Eugene Quaw wrote the words and music for the play and he is to be complimented on his talent in this line.- Mr. Quaw is a mu sician'from Bozeman, and he led the Qrchestra himself/. He is certainly a remarkable musioian and his efforts were well appre ciated. The play was first class in all respects and. we have yet to see anything that could beat it. \ 1 , All in all. the 1913 Round-Up was a success and everyone'who Sale of Wash A Big cut in Shoes •> r '•y. > : •* **•». .r yf e 'forced .to make these sacrifices in bfder to make room fornew goods that have already commenced to arrive.

' " ' Rush Assumes His New Duties During a life-time many chan ges -\take place but the world moves on just the same as if nothing had happened. Times change and people copie and, go but even this seems to make no particular difference to that race called humanity. Tnere is plen ty cif wind prevalent at all times and hot air is dispensed in large quantities, but still the world ■never ceases to keep rotating on its axes. -The old merchants and politicians are replaced with new people and faces and at cer tain times public feeling is run ning at a high rate of speed when changes are talked about and rumored, but the grand old world moves bn and ' rumored changes take place as, in times of yore. •' ....... A very, few months ago-the. Pioneer, came Qu.t. with the. statu-*, ment that Thos. Rush of this city had been appointed post master. " Some, were - skeptical about believing our statement while other® talked about a ru mor.bf ; thfe/ present postrpaster being, * xetained. . .The, Pioneer? nevqr : swayed from 'its track and" shortly aft^r 1 published' the no tice ^hat- Mr- .Rush had . been confirmed.- '••Stih^people talked ajid wbndegg^, "yuf^hfi|(riess 'kept coming at that rapid.: pace that has gained mucH^'fame 'for* the* tittle city of Wibatf^ «ever stopped. moving* neither, did the people stop comings'or jpjoing/ gth# last week ; th'e. pioneer .stated that Mr. Rush had- re ceived his' 'appointment/ ffom h Wasliingtofi* 7. • . On Monday of this week W; E. Williumspp who,bas. held. the Wibaux postoffice for about five years, checked out' while 'Mr. Rush checked.ip as postmaster, and now one^ will see the smiling face of Mr. Rush "Whert calling •for their, mail or pending tg business at the postoffice. Mr. Rush took " ahold bf his new du ties Monday and acts as,if he. was r perfectly v- satisfied with, them. He* is an old timer a round these parts and. everybody that lives within a hundred miles ' of Wibaux knows Tom Rush and is complimenting him upon his success in landing this political job. Now,when any one has a kick to register, don't run.around after a policeman but tell it to Tom for if there is any agree able way under the sun to straighten matters out, Tom is the man that can do it. We predict that Mr. Rush will give satisfactory service in his new position and after he gets broke into the harness the postoffice will be run along just the same as if-nothing had happened. Miss Farley has been retained and'Miss Theresa Rush has been added to the force, and with this efficient force the postoffice duties will be cared for in a very capable manner. ; Mr. Williamson, stated to the Pioneer that he did not know jusf 'what he would do as yet but the Wibaux people will wish him sjucdess in whatever he under takes to do for we are all sure that!he will-manage his new du ties in that capable way in which he managed the Wibaux post offie during the five years that lie acted as postmaster. The Pioneer wishes the retireing postmaster the best of success and trusts that he will continue to make this city his home. On the other hand we welcome Mr, Rush to the postoffice and from past expediences we know that he will* make a success of his new duties. . In-the meantime <tfie world'will continue to. nywe bn and changes will be made the same AS before.
