PIC-NIC. The Children of Christ cliurch Sunday school will hold their annual picnic on Friday of this week (September lOtli) at lireen Island, Neb. The children are re quested to meet at Christ church at 9 o'clock sharp Friday morning and will proceed from thenco to the pic-nic grounds. ISOCAIJ I.AFOXIts. The first taste of Dakota's incompara ble fall weather has been given us to day. Several wagon loads of squaws are bar tering wild plums and wild grapes on the streets to-day. There will be a regular communication of St. John's Lodge, A. F. & A. M., this evening. Sojourning members are invit ed. The subscribers to the Yankton Arte sian well stock are requested to meet at the office of E. T. White, at 7 o'clock to morrow evening, Sept. 8th, for the pur pose of a temporary organization. Burglars are still operating among us, though they do not succeed in getting any plunder. There are three of them and they usually make their nocturnal visits together. Adler fc Ohlman sell goods as near to Sioux City as Jackson, Nebraska, run ning them eastward over sixty miles of road and then giving better figures than eastern dealers. Lizzie Gusman, one of the colored women accused of stealing S300 from Michael Collins, skipped out this morn ing, leaving the county officers in the lurch. This action confirms the suspi cion against her. A corrected list of the bills audited in the board education meeting reads: A. Schandein, collection fees, stationery. stamps _$ 28 a A. H. Andrews & Co.. school furniture... 23 16 Thomas Kane & Co.. school furniture.... 78 20 Secretary, cash expenditures 17 95 Hobert T. Hoyt, cartage 2 25 Calhoun & Burgi, estimating 5 00 John Thornton, carpenter work and ma terial, balance Sue 164 80 Total §317 40 The Methodist society are preparing a concert for next Tuesday evening, which will be under the charge of Mrs. Dr. Turner and George Bunker, It is the intention to make this concert an en tertainment full of interest to lovers of music. Mrs. Jessie Geer, Miss Belle Ba ker, Miss Martha Batchelor, Mr. Jordan and George Bunker will sing and Mrs. Turner will preside at the piano. Messrs. Briggs fc Bnrch have opened a harness manufactory and repair house at Scotland, thus supplying a much needed industry to that section. Mr. Henry Briggs, the senior of the new firm, is a practical harness maker, and has fol lowed the business here in Yankton ior a number of years. He enjoys the reputa tion of a young gentleman of enterprise and integrity, and is a first-class work man. We have no doubt whatever that Briggs & Burcli have struck the tide in their affairs just in the nick of time. The New Hampshire Sentinel, publish ed at Keene, gives an account of a speech made by an old resident of Yankton, Judge Tufts, at a democratic pole rais ing in a neighboring town. The judge is a solid republican, but there were no democratic orators available, and the pole must go up. He had, a few days previous, delivered a good speech at a republican pole raising and the demo crats didn't see why he couldn't do as well for them. He confined himself mostly to the star spangled banner—the emblem of liberty, [and got through in good shape. Henry Bradly, of the Bradly house, reports the discovery of an honest man. During the days of the early Black Hills rush, in 1875, a great many impecunious individuals came this way and applied for food and lodging for which they were never prepared to pay. Among them was one Copperstone, who made arrangements to stop at the'Bradly house and pay for his accommodations when lie got some money. After five years of silence Sir. Bradly has heard from Cop perstone. He wrote from Deadwood, stating that he had met with all sorts oi misfortunes, financial as well as physical, but was now beginning to crawl up in the world. He forwarded the money due for board to Mr. Bradly and thanked him for his long patience. An instance ol this sort is deserving of record. 1'lrnti/ of JIO I To loan at eight per cent on improved farms. J. PAHKER HAVWARD, Yankton, D. T.

A TRAVELER'S JOTTINGS^ How Tillnas arc l*roiri*CHnlii|rnt Some of the Forts anil AffeitcleH, To tht Press ami fiatrotalan. Fort Bennett, Aug. 30.—On my way up to Gnind river 1 wrote you from Fort Sully and now, as I turn westward and take the trail for Huron, I will send you another, which will be my last until I re turn to this region. This region is blessed with an aI3un dnuce of rain. Last night was a stormy one, the water coming down in plentiful showers, with thunder and lightning ac companiment. The country is lookiug well latoly, the grass luid everything that grows having a splendid garb of green. The bottom on the east side of tlio river, between Sully and Bennett, presents a lively appearance. A force of hands from Cheyenne agency are making liay, the same to be hauled across when the river freezes over. The agency garden looks well with its varied growth of all sorts of vegetables, and last, not least, its crop of watermelons, which is very alluring to the boys in blue stationed in the vicinity, also to the other inhabitants of the local ity-causing a great many moonlight trips to the garden. Major Love, the new agent at Chey enne is a success. He has gained the liking and good-will of every one who conies in contact with him, whether on business or otherwise. The bridge across the creek (of which I spoke about in my last) is progressing very slowly, on ac count of very important materials not being at hand with which to push the job to completion. Beunett presents a good appearance, and is brand, spanking new, all of the old buildings having been cleared away, and the old post is a thing of the past. All that remains now of the same, is a fen mud shacks at the back of the garrison, and the old quartermaster and commis sary buildings. The old quartermaster storehouse has been turned into a stable, giving good accommodations to Uncle cle Sam's quadrupeds, i. e. the long suf fering and-much despised government mule. Great credit is due Lieut. Myer, of the 11th infautry, for the fine appear ance of the garrison. He, as acting quar termaster, had charge of the completion of the buildings, and the general clear ing up of the old ones, which are all pulled down and the old material utilized for various purposes. The garrison forms three sides of a square. The offi cers' line faces the river with four elegant one story buildings with front and side porches, painted and houses hard fin ished throughout, forming the upper or west side of the square. Each building is enclosed with a nice paling fence in front, and a high board feuce in rear. The enclosure contains a front and back yard. The north side of the square is composed, first, of the men's quarters, next to the river—a one story building with front and back poich 115x24, with an addition containing the dining room, kitchen, store room and wash room, the same being furnished with bath tub and other conveniences for washing purposes. The building is also hard finished, as are all the new buildings on the place. Back of the men's quarters, next to the agency fence, is the adju tant's office and telegraph office in a one story building. Next to the men's quar ters on the same line comes the quarter master and commissary building and to the rear of that, the post-bakery. Then the grain or forage house and then, next to the officer's line but at some distance from it, this most important adjunct of a garrison, the guard house. To the rear and west of that, stand the stables and other old buildings yet remaining. the Hon. Miiyor utul City Coitnri!:—Your committee on finance and taxation, to whom was referred the bills of Pliil. K. Faulk, use of office on election day, S2 E. T. White, swearing in judges and clerks, S3 Wm. Cox, hauling dead car casses, SI Eugene Weber, stationary for city treasurer, §3.25, would report 'that they have examined the same and found them correct, and would recommend that the clerk be instructed to draw warrants on city treasurer for above amounts, and would also report that they have exam ined the bill of D. McCully, for hauling water at fire, to-wit: three loads,$3.00, and would recommend t-liat he be allowed the sum of seventy cents per load as former ly paid to him, and agreed upon for the city at fires, amount, three loads at sev enty cents per load, 82.10, and that the clerk be authorizedto draw a warrant on the city treasurer for above amount in payment of his bill. Would further re port that we have examined the bill of J. M. Brisbine for services as steward of truck house and would recommend that the same be returned unpaid for the fol lowing reasons: That we have no knowl edge of said person being steward of said truck bouse, nor of his having ever per formed any services around same that while the city of Yankton lias obligated itself to pay the Yankton Hook and Ladder Co. b3.00 per month for janitor services for a certain time the said pay meat must be made to the officers of said company, and to no one individual, and they to employ and pay whom they see fit. We thereiore reject the bill. All of which is respectfully submitted. The south side is composed, mainly, of the hospital, one of the finest on the Missouri river and ably conducted by Doctor McChesuey, assisted by hospital steward Hilonbrandt, a most competent man and a genial soul to boot. This building is one story and a half, some forty feet square, with award room at tached. The ward room will accommo date forty patients on a pinch. An acre of ground is devoted to the hospital garden. There is a large front yard be sides. The whole is enclosed by a paling and board fence. South of the hospital grounds, and continguous to the grounds, comes Mr. Robb's trading store and other buildings. It is rumored that at a not very dis tant day, a railroad will be running somewhere about McKenzie's Point. Not long ago Mr. Hughett, general manager of the C. & N. W. R. R., and a parjy of other railroad magnates held a council with the Indians in this vicinity for the purpose of seeing about surveying through their reservation and also in re gard to a suitable crossing for a railroad bridge near the mouth of the Cheyenne river. From all that lean hear, the party have met with success in their un dertaking. It would be a great thing for this part of Dakota if a railroad should be built. It would open up some mighty fine country to settlement. The chicken crop shows good. Also the wild plums and grapes which are very plentiful this year, and of an excel lent quality. Housewives hereabout are storing great quantities for winter use, in the shape ol jams and jellies. The grapes are also turned to good account by making a very palatable wine, called by the boys in blue, "Moonshine." Some of your military readers will readily n derstand what the article is. We have had very cool weather for the season. As I am writing, we are having a severe rain storm from the southeast, with the usual accompanaments. Colonel Wood of the lltli infantry, is getting ready to move to New York City to assume the superintendence of the general recruiting service. Capt. Scliawn, of the 11th infantry, has gone to David's Island on recruiting ser vice, and Major Bartlett has assumed the command of Fort Sully until the ar rival of Lieut. Col. Townseud. of the lltli, who is to command the regiment during Col. Wood's absence. Col. Townseud is coming from Fort Custer, where he lias been in command of the garrison. He is looked for in a few days. Spring Creek, Wakabodje bottom, lias "P* lately gained two additions in the way of settlers, Mr. Jones and family, and Mr. Morely and family. Mr. Jones is an ex-membor of the lltli infantry band, and. Mr. Morely was formerly black smith at Cheyenne agenoy. TUAVKLKU. THK HI tilt.
