Here is another picture in the No Name Series but perhaps some
of the Enterprise readers will recognize him and be glad to gaze on
his amiable countenance once more.
We opine that his wife is a good cook from his well-nourished
appearance, or, maybe, he is a corn-fed from Nebraska. Wouldn’t
A cannibal stand and look at him and lick his chops if he had him

This is where the Enterprise lived when it was poor and hum
ble, living from hand to mouth in the building now occupied by Dave
Shelly and his. saddle shop.
It was founded ’way back in 1889 by Col. Peake and Buffalo Bill
who never dreamed that it would become the rich and powerful
newspaper that it is today, established in the handsome quarters
formerly occupied by the Stockgrower and Farmer and with type
enough to set up any kind of a head-line unless the words contain
too many S’s or B’s.
The Enterprise remains unspoiled by money and success and is
always ready to lend a helping hand to struggling sheets like the
Cheyenne Tribune and Sheridan Post.

Oh, my! Here’s John W. Hay
of Rock Springs! Looks so so
ber and pious you might think he
•was a Methodist evangelist about
to say:
“Now, Brothers and Sisters,
let’s all join in and sing No. 99
out of the little red book.”
We are waiting with our ears
thrown forward to hear if he is
going to come out for governor.
If he does, our lids are in the ring
for him—the red hat t with the
feather, and our Spring one.

“Doc” Bennett had this likeness taken about the time he was
thinking of renouncing the world, the flesh and the devil, and retir
ing to a monastery. He changed his mind, however, and went into
politics instead, becoming a candidate for the legislature to which
he was elected.
There was considerable talk over in Meeteetse of boiling him
alive in oil about the time Bighorn County was divided, but “Doc,”
with his silver tongue, argued them out of it and they went on call
ing him in as usual whenever they had the tummy ache.
of which he was president. The
bank was in the Walls building
and Charles Hensley, now in the
State Bank at Burlington, was
cashier when one of the hold-ups
scraped his automatic across the
grating and told him to pass out
the coin and not be too long
about it.
Mr. Henzley thought it was a
joke and smiled pleasantly but
his smile faded when he was
made to understand that the man

side door and was shot by the

He dropped in the street, killed
instantly by a bullet through the

The hold-ups swung bn their

and gone, with too much of a
start to be overtaken by the

’Member “Smokey”? Well,
this isn't “Smokey,” its “Dewey”
who took “Smokey” to a clean
ing like the original Dewey took
“Smokey” herded sheep for
Henry Doores and he dreamed
he was a prize-fighter until Dew

up. All the local sports lost
their bank-rolls on him.
But Dewey met his Waterloo
a little later when “The Tar-Ba

versity at Lincoln, Nebraska.

in Florida.

We cannot think who this
i young lady is although her gold
cross looks very familiar and it
seems as if we had seen it before
somewhere. Perhaps she is the
author of pn article published in
the Enterprise, entitled: “How I
Lost One Pound and a Half in
Six Weeks.” It may be that she
was collecting funds for the In
dia famine sufferers. Anyway,
we can tell from her expression
that she is wondering what there
is going to be for dinner.
