Skeletons from The Enterprise Closet « • zr: lr •Hr ■ <T !__—_—<?—. ,i__— z.—.. .■•■•~ ’-"f-aii Betcha this- feller was so proud he nearly fell over backwards when he got this top buggy. Like as not he got it on purpose to beat some other fellow’s time and there’s the Girl sitting up beside him. Couldn’t hardly any young lady resist going out in a swell top bu gKy like this behind a pair of high steppers checked up till they couldn’t see the road ahead of ’em. Probably they threw in a good whip, too, when he bought the buggy, and maybe he paid $4.50 for a nice plush lap robe. This is a rear view of the old stage coach that belonged to Col. Cody and is now the property of F. S. Groves, Jr., at the T. E. They used to keep it down at the Buffalo Bill barn and can’t vou see Gus Thompson sitting up there driving four, all on the run and the traces hanging? Can’t imagine what might have been the occasion for this pic ture, or who that noble figure is standing up on top of the load of hay like Ajax defying the lightening. Perhaps it is one of the loads that sold for $35 a ton during the winter of 1920, or maybe the man wanted to send the picture back home to prove that he was a hard worker. Anyway, it’s as fine a picture of a load of hay as one could wish to see and we hope the wind didn’t blow it off down the coun try before he delivered it. ■■ •>* ■ - ■ ..

It is plain to be seen that life is a i serious matter and there is nothing to smile about and it didn’t do a bit of good for the pic- l ture man to tell them to look pleasant. i ■ Now here’s a healthy looking group combining business with pleasure. Looks as if they were "troopers” or Jubilee Singers. Whatever tiny are, it evidently agrees with them ami they’ve r.tan aged to keep the flot.rbin full if their waistlines are my crnerion. Mayb< somebody who sees their picture will remember them. 1 his seems to be a picture of that excellent guide and mighty hunter, Hillas Jordan, surrounded by trophies of his hunt. Two elk, a deer, three bear and a wolf or coyote isn’t such a bad showing, is ■ Perhaps some one will recognize this lady on her bald face horse and faithful Fido beside her. She has had the picture taken on Sulphur Creek, we imagine, to send back East to show her folks how wild the country is in Wyoming. . I Isn’t this a cute little young ster with her smile, and her round face, and her bows, and all dres sed up to have her pi’ture took en ? yaaHgf'- > T oj ( . ■ This is Bernice Lambert when she was graduated from the Co dy High School and was a styl ish young lady with her hair dressed in the latest fashion. She. is married now and lives in Pennsylvania and very ikelly has forgotten that she had this pho tograph taken. . —-t The Episcopal church was the first church built in Cody and everybody thought it was a mag nilcent edifice with that grand steeple and everything. It was not very thickly settled in the neighborhood when this was tak en. We do not know whether that is the rector standing out in front or the congregation—both, maybe. Owing to the increased popularity of bobbed hair the Connecticut state requires applicants ter barbers’ li censes to stand an examination in thia work.
