ONE DOLLAR A YEAR South Dakota Northwestern Observes Sunday The Chicago & Northwestern railroad has determined to make Sunday a day of rest as far a.s possible. Work in all depart ments of the road, other than in those actually necessary to the operation of the system, will be suspended and the employes given the day to themselves. A similar plan was announced last week by the United States Steel corporation. The new scheme of the North western was put into effect last Sunday when from 7 a in. to 7 p. only passengers and perishable freight was moved throughout the system of 9,000 miles. While it is of course impossible to give to all railroad employes a day off on Sun day, it is estimated that the plan will allow from 10,000 to 12,000 men, chiefly members of train crews and freight handlers, to spend the day at home. Baseball Gossip The baseball season is at hand. The essential apparatus of base ball is simple and inexpensive. All that is required is a field, a stick, the ball itself and police protection for umpire. One advantage of the game as played professionally is that those sitting in the grand I stand can play the game a great |.deal better than the eighteen men on the diamond. It is also true that any one of the spectators, even though perched on a tele phone pole across the street or looking through a knothole in the fence beyond right field car judge of the pitcher's skill or the runner's fleetness much more intelligently than the arbiter who stands behind the battery. The great merit of the game is that the people can participate in it. It is not synony mous with silence. The thing to do is to take off your coat and root as long and as loudly as you can, even if you don't know what is happening.
