About 1501 years since, St. Fatriok, tha
patron saint of Ireland in whose honor
to-day is made memorable, was born
somewhere in Earope. He went to Ire
land in A. D. 432 as a preist and sometime
subsequent to that date he is said to have
banished all snakes and toads. He was
not an Irishmen born, but spent the
greatest part of hiB life in that oountry
and the order of knighthood known as
the order oi St. Patriok is still in exis
tence and it keeps hf memory green.
St. Patriok died about A. D. 498 at the
ripe old age of 116 years and his remains
were kept at Downpatrick, in Ireland,
up to the date of the reformation.
The Sioux Oity Times quotes E. O,
Johnson, of Sioax Fails, as saying that

Yankton to Sioux Oity and that both

fited thereby. In view of tbis informa
tion the Times asks: "Why is Yankton
howling We don't know—not with
rage surely. In faot we have not' heard
the alleged howl. We feel as cheerful and
comfortable as a joyous spring morn and
even Johnson in biB favorite guise of a
bird of ill omen wilt hardly be able to
disturb our serenity, When the howl
breaks loose it will be about aixty-two
miles down the river from Yankton.

same time he holds on to his love and
respect for the mother oountry. H# ad
mires the push and life of America, but
enjoys a visit abroad with great gusto.
He expeots to visit Rome and other
foreign points within two years. Tem
porarily, during the illness of his
superior, Dr. Zardetti is assuming many
of the duties whioh are by virtue of
office imposed upon Bishop'Marty and
he is kept deoidedly busy. He is proud
of the faot that he owns real estate in

In a happy frame of mind a reporter
who oalled at the residenoe yesterday
afternoon found him. The bishop pos
sesses the faculty of always having ready
some interesting information and yes
terday the conversation drifted to the
Indian educational work in whioh
work Bishop Marty has spent the last
dozen years of his life. He presumes
thsit he has seen every Indian in Dakota
and so oonversant with the nature of
this people is he that his ideas upon
that subjeot are of value. He bases the
following statements upon his own ob
servations: He says the efforts which
have been put forth in past yearB for the
eduoation of tha Indian by oburohes and
missionaries are just beginning to bear
fruit, and he is eagerlv looking forward
to the time when the Indians of tbe
northwest' will have attained as
great a state of civilization as the whites.
He says the Indians generally do their
own thinking and that once they con
ceive an idea they turn it over and over
in their minds until it oompletely pos
sesses them and governs their actions.
Indians observe for themselves and upon
obseivation tbey found *their praotioes.
Thus it is that Indians in digesting re
ligious ideas and arguments seem im
petuous in either disregarding or paying
attention to tbe teachings of mission
aries, He regards the Indian as a dis
tinct and individual type with thinking
powers not inferior to those of any other
rape of man, and of a reolusive disposi
tion whioh renders the reading of bis
These ideas of the native American
have led Bisbop Marty to systematize,
so far as possible, that portion of the
missionary work over whioh he exerotBes
oontrol. He says that among the young
married men and women religious ideas
seem to have the greatest influence, and
if all the Indians at that time in life oan
have the teaohings of missionaries,
new generation of Indians will have the
right kind of infueioes thrown about it,
and the entire (feneration will inoline
toward higher civ-'nation.
Among his Indian proteges in Dakota,
Bishop Marty has one young man who is
anxious to study for the ministry and
among the young women there are sever
al who are seriously thinking of donning
the veil of some order of the sisterhood.
He regards the problem of the edu
cation of the Dakota Indian
as almost solved, and his faoe beamed
with pleasure when disonssing their pro
With a oordial invitation to call again
the reporter was dismissed.
On the opposite side of the ball from
Bisbop Marty's study Dr. Otto
Zardetti, vicar general of the ohuroh in
South Dakota, is domioiled. Dr. Zar
detti is greatly interested in Yankton,
and he heard with pleasure the latest in
formation relative to railroad and other
progressive matters. This gentleman
is a student of much more than ordinary
development, and couples with the in
formation oulled from books the in
formation obtained by extensive travels
in Amerioa and abroad, and bis disoos

The Village of Yankton was Established during tho above
named year. In that year at the first annual spring election, "Strike
the-Ree" was elected mayor. "Strike-the-Ree" was a Tammany demo
crat, but 1859 being a year of great importance he was nominated
and elected on a fusion ticket by the business element. A Boom, was
started during his administration and after serving one year he was
unanimously re-elected—At this time E. M, O'Brien was appointed
Real Estate Agent, he pitched his tepee at the Corner of Third and
Douglas Avenue where he inaugurated the business which has since
grown to its magnificent proportions. During the early stages of his
career in the Real Estate business he, it is reported found it necessary
to scalp one Big Injun named "Competition" who Stood in his path,
but sincc^ that time his tent flap has been in constant use by Custo
mers who continue daily to look over and buy the bargains he
[HAKESPEARE was a wiseman in his
day and generation, and bequeathed
to the world wise counsel and timely
admonition. The probability is that
Shakespeare was a well dressed man, parti
cular in the choice of the various garments
which in his day were essential to give to
a man an appearance of elegance, and he
knew, from abundant experience, that
.. notwithstanding his great abilities, he
must pay Court to Fashion if he would
maintain his station fully. Men of the
present day may profitably take counsel
from the distinguished Bard of Avon.
