PRISON CITY FOLKS VISITED THE
ELKS' EXPOSITION IN FORCES
GAY SCENES ON THE MIDWAY
Sketches of the Life Within the
Board Wall* of the Elks' Kal
eidoscopic Exhibition of
A steady stream of jostling, joking, per
spiring humanity flawed down the booth
lined streets of the carnival to the Mecca
of the Midway all yesterday afternoon
and evening. The fact that it was Still
water day swelled the crowd consider
ably. There were family parties, pater
familias, mater famlllas and lively
cherubs; there were parties of women
venturesomely doing it alone, their curi
osity unrestricted by the presence of a
male escort; there were parties of young
girls out for the fun of it all, and there
was, as 'always, the irrepressible small
boy, and much of him, too.
Admiring: glances were cast at the gay
ly decorated and attractively arranged
booths on either side the quarter of a
mile of Exposition street, but there
wasn't much lingering- there. Ocaslonal
ly a tempting souvenir detained the pil
grim, and ai'ier a few minutes' delay he
would resume his march, bearing a pretty
and most welcome fun, a tiny looking
glass or perhaps a small bottle ot bier,
that an enterprising firm is giving away
as a souv< r«ir.
A funny incident occurred yesterday
afternoon in connection with this giving
away of the small bottles of beer. Two
middle-aged women were slowly wending
their way up the narrow street, their
spectacled eyes pee; ing sharply into every
! booth. The vendors of lemonade, pea
| nuts. Ice cream and the like failed to
hold their attention, but the man wkh
the beer bottles was more honored. They
stopped irresolutely and sniffed.
"Beer," snapped she of the aggressive
bonnet. "Did you ever."
"Have a souvenir, madam," courteously
suggested the dispenser of the bottles,
flourishing one almost under the con
temptous nose of the speaker.
"Young man," began the possessor of
the aggressive bonnet, wrathfuily,
"young man "
But -ho was interrupted, for her com
panion had thrust out a btack-mkted
hand, and was soon in possession oi' a
"Lyddy," gasped feebly her scandalised
friend, "Do you know that that there
bottle is filled with a vile, intoxicating
Lyddy, looking a trifle shamefaced, urg
ed her friend on, but not before the
crowd overheard her apologetic rep!y.
"Well, I don't care, it's real cunnin' and
there ai'nt enough liquor in it to hurt,
• • •
She was tall and very, very plump,
with expansive, crimson features.' She •
entered the '^crnjan village with another
woman nr.d tvo small children. She evi
dently saw no need of secrecy, so she
discuss' d her affairs loudly.
"Well, I am beat," she exclaimed as she
marshaled her small charges into their
seats and unfastened her bonnet strings.
We came to town this morning and have
been on the go every bUssed minute. "No,
sissie," tins sharply to a girl that had
come up to asked if there was any or
der, "We're jist restin'. We've seen the
girls that eats the snakes, and I must
say it does seom a shame, a likely lo.jkin'
girl, too. and the hairy girl and Bobbie,
he's had a ride on the camel, haven't
you, Bobbie?" Bobbin nods sulkily, there
was apparently something he wanted
that he didn't get. "And there was the
animals and the heathens that do the
tricks, and what not. And ain't it nice,"
warmly, "that we met just here. And
where.-: Dan'l?" Dan'l evidently was
the other woman's husband.
"O, he's outside yet. I was too tired to
go a step further," answered her friend,
"Outside." the fat lady pursed up her
lips. "Il'm—well if 1 was you, Lizzy, I'd
jine him. Where there's heathens around
so promiscuous as there is here—well. I'd
jine him, Lizzie." Lizzie, however, either :
had supreme faith in Dan'l, or was too
tired to care, for she refused to take the j
advice. Presently she looked with some
curiosity at the fat lady's bag. which was
bulging with papers. "My sakes, Susan,
what have you there?" .she asked.
"Tracts." said her friend, succinctly.
"There's not so many as 1 started out
with. I've disposed of a goodly number.
There's no need, because we're out on
pleasure, that we should neglect the
cause. I've been distributing them,"
triumphantly, "all day."

Col. Dick Woods, of Sioux Falls, who is

Six counties nave made returns to the
state auditor for June settlement of
taxes. With but one exception there is
a Botieeabftft falling .oft" in the amounts
collected, .as Compared with a year ago.
Tpe clearance tax sale was held in May,
atiil the logical deduction would be that
ttie sale would swell the tax collections.
Just the contrary is true, and Douglas
county aloV.v.' shows an Increase for the
current year over the corresponding pe
riod a year ago.
State Treasurer Ivoerner expects the
daily receipts of his office from tax col
lections made under the June settlement
and returns for interest and principal of
land contracts will run between $50,000 and
$100,000 for some time to come. Yester

other opportunity to show the public
i teachers that he is the whole thlm;
in school matters, and that without him

the extra week of the term which they
are required to teach this year. At its
meeting Tuesday night the Democratic

money should be paid out of the school
