CHARLES H. SHELDON—1893-1897.
Charles H. ShHdon, second governor of South Dakota, was born !b V##**
mont in 1840 and ivas tn every respect a self made man. His father died
when he was only wix years of age. At the age of eight he went to work on a
fiirin, where he remained six years. Then he clerked In a store two years at
120 a year, saving out of this pittance $12, which he gave to his mother, who
made his clothing. He served throughout the civil war with honor, removed
to Illinois and finally in 1881 to Dakota, where he became a prosperous farmer
in Day county. The Republicans nominated him to succeed Mellette as gov
ernor in 1893, and he was elected. Governor Sheldon was re-elected two years
U»ter. He was a public speaker of pleasing address and great force and made
a capable executive. He died in 1898 at Deadwood, whither be bad been

THE WILD AND WOOLY
A Trip Through Stanley County—
A Fine County with Great
Last week we had the pleasure,
and we use the word advisedly, for
It was a pleasure, of taking a trip
through Stanley County, that new
empire of the west which has just
been opened to settlement by the
extension of the railway from Pierre
to llapid City.
Arriving at Philip early Friday
morning to take the north bound
stage for Topbar, a country post
oftlce and store some thirty miles
north. The rain of the preceding
night had put the gumbo in good
condition to stick and the first eigh
teen or twenty miles was indeed slow
and painful. But after crossing the
divide the Cheyenne slope presented
an entirely different aspect. The
sticky gumbo was left behind and
the soil now was a sandy loam, and
the roads, except In the creek bottoms,
Some eight or nine miles north
west of Topbar we were met by
Clyde McNeil and conducted to ids
little shack upon the plain. Adjoin
ing his claim was the ranch of Fred
Kairchild. whose wife, Miss Nellie
Stobbs, all oldtime Wessington peo
ple will remember. This ranch is
located on Spotted Bear Creek and
is an ideal spot for such a business,
well timbered and abundantly watered
though we cannot say much for
the quality of the water, it being
strongly alkali. Miss Stobbs' claim
was about 80 rods west, well up on
A few miles to the east and north
Is an ideal farming country, known
as Hardingrove Flat. No finer laying
land could le found anywhere than
stretches there for miles. Every
quarter has been tiled on, and nearly
all the land is fenced and the roads
laid off square, giving it a much
more up-to-date appearance. Not
withstanding a two months' drouili
the crops are good on the compar
atively small area which Is farmed.
No threshing had yet been done,
but the small grain promised an
exceptionally heavy yield. The dry
weather had been too much for
most of the sod corn, but that on old
ground that had been well cultivated
gave promise of a good crop.
An account of that country would
be incomplete without mention of
one of its leading citizens, lan
Bierwagen, an old time rancher. We
dropped in to Dan's Sunday evening
and were very hospitably received,
and the following morning were
shown some of the finest scenery, it
has ever been our good fortune to
view. At the head of the little creek
011 which the Bierwagen ranch is
located, is a mamouth spring, send
ing a large stream of water down
the creek for .several miles until it
looses itself in the sink holes of
Plum creek. Around this sprim a
patch of a couple of acres or so had
been plowed up and put in garden.
Every kind of vegetable was growing
there including celery. Tomatoes
by the bushel were just beginning to
ripen and wc would not be surprised
to hear that a car load of cabbage
had been shipped from that garden.
A little further on was a natural
park which in point of beauty rivals
anything we have ever seen. Should
a railroad ever penetrate that region
Mr. Bierwagen tells us that he ex
pects to lay it off for a park. No
more delightful summer resort
could be found anywhere. At pre
sent it is forty miles or more to the
nearest railway point.
The return trip to Philip was on
dry roads and the gumbo had lost all
Its terrors. Traveling over them
then, one could scarcely imagine
how bad they could be, and in point
of fact, they are no worse than many
of the roads in Iowa and Illinois In
the muddy season.—Wessington
