A WIBAUX BOOSTER T. J. BUSHELL Judge Bushell, as he is famili arly known around these Darts came to Wibaux about seven years ago and purchased what is known as the Davis tract of land consisting of about 10,000 acres. He had formerly resided at Souix Falls, S.D., and had visited this part of the country several times. Mr. Bushell divid ed this tract into smaller farms and has sold the greater part of it. He still owns considerable land in this part of the country, as his business is that of a real estate dealer, at which his time is mostly spent. He has held the office of Mayor of the city of Wibaux for two years and is al so Justice of the Peace. Judge Bushell is a booster for Wibaux first, last, and all the time, hav ing spent the greater part of his time working for Wibaux county. He is a broad minded man and is for anything which will help our little city on the way of progressing. Home Talent Play Was a Success! The home talent play given at the opera house last Friday aft ernoon and evening proved a success both financially and soc ially. The play was fine through out and surpassed anything that has made these parts during the past fe,w years. Much credit is due to the various actors and actresses for their untiring eff orts in making the play a suc cess. We could go on and on lauding the various players but impossible for us to say that! any special part was better than j any other. The players worked on the play for the past month and a half and everything was carried out just like clock work. The old lyceum course debt was cleared up and a good substan tial balance left in the bank. This speaks well for all the play ers and showed the Wibaux people that we have better tal ent right here at home than any of the drifting companies which appear at the local opera house. Rev. R. B. Walker and Mrs. J. D. Cullen were the instructors and much credit is due them as the success of any play has lots to do with the drilling given the various players. Former Wibaux Horse in Lead Hokola was entered in the races at Beach by Mr. Willis two years ago and simply jog ged the distance. Later the horse was sold to .Judge Loud of Miles City, and this season he was in the circuit of North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. Respecting the work of Hoko la, John Blackman, the trainer, was very enthusiastic and said: "1 don't believe there is a horse in the northwest that can beat Hokola. I have raced with him four years and I have been out of the money only once, and after this trip he is coming home as sound as a dol lar and in better form than ever." Hokola lowered his record while away this season to 2:141/4. He raced at Hamlin, Minn., Valley City, Grand Forks, Reedsburg, Wis., Stev ens Point, Chippewa Falls and other places. M. W. Power of this city saw the horse race at Hamlin and lie reported that he was working fine.—Beach Progress. |Everybody Is Going to Dennis On tomorrow (Saturday.
