Mirth and Laughter Let Old Wrinkles Come "The Old Clothes Man'' a comedy drama written by James Kyrle Mac Curdy is soon to visit our city. "Of what value is the stage to civilization" is a question that has agitated social, religious and edu cational lodies and institutions and a few words in support of one appreciable service the stage, the play and the players render humanity, will not be out of place here: they provide for the people who toil, and for those who are careworn and depressed, a healthy diversion —a clean, wholesome, re freshing recreation that is a God send to the tired heart and brain -two hours of rest and oblivion from the cares of a lifetime, the enjoyment of hearty laughter and needed amusement. This argu ment will receive unanimous sup port from people who are broad minded, and those who toil and worry over the problem of life and in their hearts they arc thank ful to the stage, and the actor, and to such plays as "The Old Clothes Man"" for the worthy part they take in administering to the health and happiness of tired humanity. The present production of "The Old Clothes Man" comes to us highly recommended and under the personal guarantee of its management Messrs. Gilson & Bradfield, who promise that the production will be complete in every detail, with elaborate scenic equipment, and a thoroughly com petent cast, headed by Herbert DeGuerre, who has won distinc tion as Solomon Levi, the leading character of this famous play. The guarantee is good, but the outlook is that the people will be well repaid for their patronage, which will no doubt be liberal on his occasion. It will be at the Grand Opera House on Wednes day Sept. 29. Stock Shipments Large The past two weeks has seen the stock shipping season in its great est activity in this locality. The range stock from the Cheyenne reservation and Meade county has been going to market by the train load. The small cattle men still operating in this county have been getting rid of their annual beef crop. And the whole cattle coun try west of here has been rushing its product toward the market, so that stock trains follow each other in rapid succession over this line of the Northwestern. Prices have ruled strong, and so far there has been little complaint from shippers. Most of die cattle from this locality has been shipped to Sioux City, though a few ship ments have gone to Chicago. This week especially the Sioax City OMurket has gathered in the long ebd of the eattle crop from this locality. The interstate fair is in foil awing at that place, and ship pers have thus an opportunity to market their cattle and hare big celebration at the saw Ltht Great Empire of Stanley The meeting of the Commercial club Saturday was well attended about forty being present who were interested in artesian wells. County Surveyor R. II. Townsend of Fort Pierre was out and spoke at the meeting giving some definite figures to work on. Mr. Town send was out primarily to locate several wells where they would afford the most good to the great est number, but as it was decided to ascertain our altitude and see whether or not we could get an artesian well, before having them located. Mr Townsend did not do any work. It was also de cided if our altitude was such that we could get a How, to petition the township board to call an elec tion to bond the township to buy an artesian well outfit as this plan to have the township buy the ma chine. hire an expert, and loan the machine to residents of the town ship. who would pay the expert's hire and furnish their own casing was the one the majority favored. —The Ottumwa. On Monday morning local authorities were notified tlm„ a suspicious looking character had boarded the freight at Capa on his way out here. Deputy Calhoun and Constable Ililgert were in readiness on the arrival of the train. But the stranger alighted on the other side of the train and made a fast line for the bushes near the river. He was at once hotly pursued and overtaken and lo when confronted by the officers is identity was at once established as Wood the fellow who until two months ago conducted the tin can restaurant, and who stabbed his wife in an argument over the non essentiality of corsets, for which he was sentenced to do penance in the county bastile, and had just been released and he took this method of avoiding a demonstra tion upon his reappearance here. He was allowed to go unmolested. Midland Star. A report is current that be ginning with next Sunday a day light train service will be inaugur ated between Rapid City and Chamberlain and east with direct Chicago connections. This will give the people of the county west of river an opportunity to do their traveling by daylight and will be much appreciated.—Kadoka Press. The town board of trustees re cently gave an order for three gasoline street lamps, and they ar rived yesterday and will be im mediately placed in operation. One will be located on the south end of Main street, one on the corner near the Black Pipe saloon and one on north Main street.— Kadoka Press. bunch of 140 head of cattle lelonging to Messrs- Hudson, Matice, McGuire and Singleton were taken thru here Thursday on the way to Nowlin, where they will be shipped. This is quite a bunch to go thru together now, and gives one a faint idea of what things were like when Stanley was count ed one of the cow counties.—The Ottumwa- The business of the railway company is increasing at this station. This August the cash receipts were over $1000 more than for the same month last year. —Nowlin News. L*st Friday John Farn ham shipped a car of melons to Rapid City, receiving therefor 10 cents each for the fruit. There was very few melons grown west of here.—Interior Index.' J. E. Judy and Miss Cynthia V ander-Plog were married at the residence of the bride's parents at Mileerillfrla* Monday, £r. J. L. The happy Bad River News Offitffsn County Paper PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, S. D., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1909 couple passed through Midland on the early ednesday morning train, bound for Montrose, Iowa, on their wedding journey. In spite of the unseasonableness of the hour, they were met at the train by a number of solicitous friends, who proceeded to speed them on their way with rice and old shoes in the regulation manner, said rice and old shoes being plentifully bestowed. These young people are very well and favorable known in northern Stanley county, and numerous friends are offering their congratu lations. Midland Mail. The' Iroquois Chief says that "O. T. Dike, superintendent of construction, and other officials of the N. \\. railway have l»een roaming over the country to the north of Iroquois in automobiles and that, it has been positively settled that the Northwestern will build a line from Hitchcock to Onida this year." If we remem ber rightly, this same C. T. Dike, with a company of officials, was once upon a time "roaming over the country" to the north of Mid land: but. so far as we have been able to discover, no railroad has been built and nothing else has ever come of it. Midland Mail. Frank S. Bail jumped his bail the latter part of the week, leav ing his of bondsmen to pay the price his apoearance bond, amount ing to $150. The preliminary hearing of Jack Mathieson was scheduled for Tuesday morning, but as Bail, who was the principle witness, had already made him self conspicuous by his absence round these parts, the case against .lack was .dropped. It is gener ally thought that this termination of the affair is a happy one, as it save* a lot of expense and rids Wendte and Stanley county gener ally of a very undesirable citizen. Fairplay. Mitchell Corn Belt Association On September 27th the Mitchell Corn palace will again throw open its doors, and the marvelously beautiful structure will be dedi cated to King Corn and all his satellites—all the grains and grasses—that add to the great agricultural wealth of South Dakota. No annual event is of such vast mportance to the state: for here is assembled, in rich profusion, the various products of our pro ductive soil, evidencing to the world at large its great fertility and the glorious possibilities for additional husbandmen to "come in and sup with us.r The Corn Palace itself is a mar el of beauty, and it is decorated within and without, with native products of the soil, corn being the chief article used. To the as sembled thousands it is truly a revelation, and its ornate beauty appeals to the masses. Add to this the stellar attractractions supplied by the United States Marine Band of Washington, D. C., and the numerous high-class vaudeville acts by a corps of famous artists, and the Corn Palace at once becomes "a thing of beauty and a joy for ever." The railroads recognize the great importance and deep signifi cance of this annual exhibition, and run numerous excursion trains at half fare, a lower rate than erer given any similar enterprise. More than fifteen county exhibits will attest the prodigality of Mother Earth in response to the intelligent efforts of the husband man. The Corn Palace opens Septem* ber 27 and closes Saturday night, October 2. Every citizen of South should attend for at least a Marvin Hu^hitt Optimistic While in New York paying a last tribute to the memory of his friend, the late E. 11 Harrison, President Marvin llughitt of the Chicago & North Western railway company, in an interview, spoke of the excellent conditions now prevailing in the west and north west and how the future furnished an unobscured view of general prosperity. "The railroad world, and natur ally my observations refer more particularly to the Chicago & North-Western, is entertaining a period of activity which is merely a reflection of what is now taking place in the commercial, industrial and agricultural spheres of activi ty," Mr. Hughitt said. "As far «s our lines are concerned, we continue to adhere to policy that means that improvements must be kept up. regardless of what may transpire. The Chicago North western is now directly operating ,635 miles of road. Our equip ment consists of 1,000 cars ard every car is tit and fully equal to its task. "Extensions are continued in South Dakota and other states and in a northwesterly direction from Milwaukee. Relative to the ser vice as a whole, I find that the in troduction of the telephone as a means of dispatching has proved of immense value- We are con tinually increasing in this direc tion, and as we may l»e considered pioneers in this matter we shall also take advantage of whatever new feature of telephoning that may come up. 'The further upbuilding of the territory through which our lines pass is now merely a matter of progression from a condition of excellency to a condition which promises even better. The west is wonderful in its responsiveness to the energies of man. The ele ment which has settled in those regions makes push and persever ance its prime movers. In every way the country can look to that section for encouragement and strength. "The Chicago & North- W estern has just issued its fiftieth annual report. Its half century history must be found in the reports as they have been issued from year to year. Performance is always the only means of determining what has been accomplished. We shall continue in our even way, conservatively keeping abreast of the times, and doing our best for the large property that is in our charge." Game and Fish Laws of South Dakota Following is the open seasons for hunting and fishing in this state: Close season on prairie chickens and grouse to Sept 10,1911 on quail to Sept. 10. 1912: on all species of pheasants, to Jan. 1, 1915.

K. Coyne, County Game and Fish Warden Hayes, S. D. Supply Range Cattle Limited Realization of the fact that the unusual supply of grass beef from the northwestern range is not at their disposal this season is dawn ing on the big packers. The cat tle barons that formerly ranged their cattle herds on the public domain of Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas have been evicted by the settlers and the process of liquidation has reached a more advanced stage than the big pack ers imagined. So far this season Chicago has received but 43,000 range cattle from the Northwest, against 93.(100 hist year, and a vision of well filled freezers is rapidly vanishing. Packers have been accustomed for two decades past to fill their freezers during the summer and fall, taking the beef out during winter and spring, when prices are materially higher. Much of their wealth has been acquired by this easily traveled route, which is now all but closed to them. Scarcity of grass beef was indicated by eager purchas ing of native stuff at higher prices yesterday. Less range beef means a better market for the producer of native stuff, who has always suffered severl.v from w e s e n o e i i o n i a o Live Stock World. The Kansas Liar Loose Again This is said to have been in a letter written by an eastern visi lor: "Most of the Kansas streets are paved, grains of corn iterag used for cobble stones, while the cobbs are hollowed out for sewer pipe. The husk when taken oft' whole and stood on end makes a nice tent for children to play iu. It sounds queer to hear the feed man tell the driver to take a dozen grains of horse feed over to Jack son's livery stable. If it were not for soft deep soil here I don't see now they would harvest the corn, as the stalks would grow up as high in the air as a Metho dist church steeple. However, when the ears get too heavy their weight presses the stalk down in the ground on an average of nine ty two feet and thus brings the ear near enough to the ground to lie chopped off with an ax."— Kansas City Journal. Sheriff Huston Visits Milesville Last Friday evening Sheriff George S. Huston and M. L. Par- cells loaded a supply of gasoline on (ieorge's stink machine and hied themselves away from the county seat to Milesville. It was the occasion of the social club's regular dance at that place, but the visit of the sheriff turned out to be official rather than social. About nine o'elock in the evening the high sheriff of the bailiwick arrived, swooped down upon the manager of the pool hall at that place, and extended an official in vitation to call upon one Hugh S. McGuire, county justice of the peace, at Fort Pierre. The invi tation was accepted. It was a sort of informal "come and bring your knitting" affair. Anyway the sheriff found a team and farm wagon next morning, loaded uw twenty cases of beer and a few galons of other stuff that make drunk come. This was all carted off to the county seat, where they don't use the stuff at all. Fancy the high clover that our county officers find themselves in this week. On Sunday morning when we picked the story up on the streets here, we were unable to get many details of the affair. We do: not know who was gathered in by the officials or what the outcome of the matter was. Our informant was certain however that a wagon load of wet good* was taken to Fort Pierre. The only iddi^ial information that we have in since then is the report
