( ' ( A Pleasant Trip
: ; To Bonesteel , S. D.
" " '
. . .
r . . ' " - - The porter of the first sleeper
t . said as the crowd was getting off
} t. : . the cars at home , "this is the
t best natured crowd ah evah sec. "
And so it was. From the time of
I . starting until the trip was over
G everybody had a good time , the
. ' memory of which is and will con-
I tinue very pleasant. Aside from
\ the sad accident of Bert Baker's
: " , \ - which had a depressing influence
on the party , and the ludicrous
, dilemma in which Dave Reavis
found himself , no especial inci-
dent was attached t9 the trip.
: After reaching Omaha the two
" " sleepers were attached to the F.
E. & M. V. train which departed
for the northwest in the morning ,
giving the excursionists a day-
light ride through Nebraska . and
\ Dakota. Bonesteel was reached
. in the early evening and every-
body left the train to take in the
" , J. . ' town. If there was .a grafter
who was not in 'Bon.esteel it was
because there was no room for
him. No game of chance which
ingenuity of man has devised
that was not represented. Mart
Gehling said that the municipal
authorities had even granted the
, "sand bagging" privi lege.
" Arrangements were made with
a notary by which an papers
could be made out and executed
I . at - the car and at , reduced rates.
: No difficulty was experienced in
registering as the regulations of
the government were so perfect
that the wait together with all
necessary formalities to be observed -
served by ten o'clock and spent
the remainder of the stay in vari-
ous ways. Bob RLlle and George
_ Holt hired a couple of "pintos"
and went horse back riding , being
\ followed constantly by the owner
who didn't like the looks of his
customers and was evidently
afraid his horses were : about to
be stolen. Quite a party went
onto the reservation as far as St.
Elmo the proposed townsite of
the county seat , while others
'r walked about town , or visited in
the car. A hail storm came up
the afternoon and a perfectly de-
fined cyclone cloud was an object
of great interest as it swept the
boundless plains in the far dis-
. , , tance. Shortly after supper the
East bound train backed into the
sleepers and we were ofT for home
each ardently hoping that the
summons would soon come to re-
turn and choose his farm The
country itself is very beautiful.
Corn was on an average better
than is the local corn this year.
Wheat looks hardy and prolific
and the oats are a better stand
and a heavier yield than the
writer ever saw in Richardson
countr. Several small orchards
were seen and the natives say
that fruit is successfully grown.
Potatoes are especially fine and
blue stem and some tame grass
looked excellent Take it all in
all , anyone owning a quarter sec-
tion of the Rosebud country may
count himself a fortunate man.
The return trip was made with
out incident , many of the party
waiting over in Omaha until
Thursday evening while the two
cars dial the major number reached -
ed home Thursday afternoon a
tired but satisfied crowd. The
thanks of all were due Joe Var-
ner for the complete way in
which the wants of everybody
were provided for , and the little
annoyances that were saved by
his foresight. .
Mr. Johnston was the most
sedate and best behaved party of
the crowd. He was taken for a
preacher by a great many ( ( luring
'oNe had lawyers , doctors ,
undertakers , farmers , merchants ,
and nearly every trade and pro-
fession represented on the two
cars except a minister. If there
had been one , there might have
been a wedding.
John Oswald and Abe Yoder
secured some splendid views of
the country and have compiled
them in albums which will furn-
ish verY interesting souvenirs of
The writer saw innumerable
flocks of young chickens and
quails. After the immense wheat
and oat fields are turned to stub-
ble the country must be a perfect
paradise to the spo rtsman.
Nearly everyone had an old
soldier's application , so the regis
tration of the party niust have
aggregated . nearly two hundred.
If any of you think you are
brave , we are from Missouri : we
dare you to ask Charlie Hieneman
when and how he got home.
What Annie Hon and Guy
Hutchins don't know about
farms and farming isn't worth
Bud Rose of Salem was one of
'cm If Bud Rose doesn't draw a
farm in the Rosebud country it
will be because there is nothing
in a name. . ,
Tom McLane bases his chances
of success on the fact that he was
on the thirteenth car of the train
which car contained thirteen
charming young ladies. He occupied -
cupied the thirteenth berth , was
the thirteenth member of the
part to file and registered on
the thirteenth day of the month.
The democratic party will miss
tHe chance of its life if it doesn't
employ Co ! . Sam Robinson to de-
liver his celebrated Bryan speech
during the ensuing campaign.
Mart Gehli ng put two toes out
of the business bv dropping a
chunk of ice on them. All ques-
'tions as to what he was doing .
with the ice are overruled.
Why not organize a similar
party to attend the \ \ orld's fair
later in the summer. Its ever so
much pleasanter and cheaper
than by going any other way.
Miss Florence Gr1l1stead was
the only member of the party
who failed to register. She was
not of the required age.
Bertha Melion ana Earl Frakes
were united in marriage by Rev.

Monday between the Colts and
\VymOl' Although the boys
played good ball , they failed to
win out and Wymore got their
scalps in both games , the score

The game on Sunday was wit-
nessed by a large crowd. A num-
ber of good plays were made on
both sides , although an error or
two cost Falls City the game.
The score up to the last half of
the ninth inning stood 4 to 1 in
favor of Wymore , but Sears made
a safe hit and then Foster hit it
out for a home run , thus making
the score as above stated. The
score by tft1ings was as follows :

The game on Monday was also
witnessed by a good crowd and
while our boys were able to hit
the ball they could not land them
in the right place to count. As
on the former occasion they gin-
gered up too late and the score
was the same as the day before.
The score by innings :
