•'AH.tr ascertaining the amount of
water available for irrigation, which
would include the rainfall, Mr. Walter
will turn his attention to the location
of natural reservoir sites, some twelve

for by residents of the region. He will
determine whether or not they are
practicable for converting the flood

particular attention to the expanse of

water may lie carried by ditches from
the proposed reservoirs.
"Congressman Martin of Deadwood
has received all tho petitions that have
been prepared by residents of western
South Dakota asking for the establish
ment of reservoir sites, and these have
been forwarded by him to the secretary
of the interior, by whom they have
been referred to the United States
geological survey for action. The geo

into the couutry to make the prelimi

scheme practicable he will be given as

Thursday evening of last weok the
first public, exercises of the High
School graduating cla.ss were presented
to a large audience at tho city hall.
Their class play. Phe Princess," was
reiniered in a highly successful man
ner. Miss I'iUa Kirtley, as Princess
and head of the Girl's f-V.hool, and
Blaine .lohnson, as Prince, played
their parts charmingly. .Messrs llior
dan, Phillips, Dornan and Kargo wtere
equally pleasing—the two latter with
the Prince assuming a marked femi
nine air in their sister's apparel and
'•iliill'y hair." Mattie Petty played the
roh- of La iy Blanche, and Fay Ames,
Violet, daughter of Ipse. Vera Me
Lim-ms and Mae Philips as Melissa
and Lady Psyche, captivated the audi
ence, to iy iiotliing of the hearts of
Florian and Cyril. The caste was well
chosen, and the play, considerd hoavy,
was entered in with good spirit and
rendered to the appreciation of tho
audience. Much hard work and time
were necessarily spent, in its prepara
tion and every commendation is due
t.he class and instructors for having
furnished so successful an evening's
Tho costumes were elegant, and con
tributed toward the successful rendi
tion of tho play as well as to the
pleasure of the occasion.
The scarf drill by the girl graduates
in their class colors was very pretty
and afforded an enjoyable feature. It
showed much precision and uniformity
—the fascination of all drills.
Friday evening the commencement
exercises proper were given at the city
hall, the place being filled to over
flowing with interested friends and
spectators. Rev. Mr. Coffey opened
the exercises with prayer, and was
followed by a well-rend&r°d piano solo
by Miss Ella Kirtley. Miss Winnie
Mosher's class poem was one of much
merit as well as pleasing. As the
writing of rhymes isn't an everyday
occurrence with most people—and the
publication of poetry is still more
unusual by the STAB—we break over
our rules upon this occasion and pub
lish a portion of Miss Mosher's class
poem in this issue. It is of special
interest to the class.
Miss Agnes Lessard recited "Mother
Goose" very acceptably.
The class history by Miss Margie
Clark was one of the pleasing features
of the evening. It was excellently
composed and nicely given. Tho
peri'onal allusions to the members of
the class were catchy and interesting.
Leo Dor Li an and Merchant Fargo
gave a beautiful cornet duet which
was much enjoyed.
Miss Bertha Gordon's recitation was
excellent, her voice being clear and
distinct, and her gestures good.
The class oration by Miss Grace
Coffey was highly creditable to her and
the clas3—full of good thoughts.
After a very pretty vocal duet by
Misses Jennie and Ella Kirtley, Prof.
Cobb spoke a few words commenda
tory of the class, stating that Miss Mae
Philips had graduated with the honors
of the class. He then introduced the
president of the board of education,
Henry Marty, who presented each
graduate with a diploma.
This closed the formal exercises of
the evening, and with the generous
distribution of flowers and presents to
the graduates by friends, and with
vigorous class yells of '00, '03, '05, aud
'04, respectively, the assemblage ad
It was a handsome class—the largest
ever graduated from the public school
of Hot Springs—and the STAB wishes
for the young people each a noble, suc
cessful aud happy life.

Decoration liny I'iitiiitl.v Observed in Hot
Springs ISiisiiu'ss SIIS|U'IU1(M1.
Decoration day was a most oharmiiig
day—ouu of those clear, lialmy spring
days that enthuses one with all nature
and makes him feel that this is a nice
world in which we live. It was an
ideal day for decoration day, and was
most loyally observed in Hot Springs.
Business houses were closed during
the greater part of the day—more
completely we believe than ever before
upon similar occasions. At the ap
pointed time the parade of veterans
and citizens formed at city hall and
proceeded to the Soldiers' Home cem
etery and Evergreen cemetery, where
the graves of the veteran dead were
decorated. A small flag marked the
grave of each veteran, and flowers were
strewn upon the mounds that mark
the last resting place of soldier boys.
The ceremonies attendant upon these
exercises were sadly impressive and
participated in by a large number of
Rev. J. A. Sutton delivered an ad
dress to a packed house, many failing
to And standing room. Rev. Sutton is
a fluent speaker, a ready story-teller
aud has a story with which to illustrate
every point. He was especially elo
queut upon this occasion when patriot
ism is at its height, and said many
things that delighted his audience.
He took occasion to criticise the Board
of Managers of the state Soldiers'
Home for adopting the resolution
which requires members of the Home
who have no dependent relatives to
turn in to the Home fund all of the
pension they receive above 812, con
tending that the veterans had earned
that pension and that it was theirs to
do what they please with it, and that
the state was doing no more than is
its duty toward the veterans, regard
less o£ the amount of their pensions.
This opinion of course greatly pleased
the veterans affected. Rev. Sutton's
address was profusely appreciative of
the part played by the boys in blue
during the GOs and of the citizenship
of our country. We regret that space
prevents an extended synopsis, or the
publishiug of the speech entire.
Following the address a class of Miss
Helen Osmotherly's in the public
school gave a flag drill that was beauti
ful and captivating. The girls had
been excellently drilled and went
through the various manouvers to the
great delight of the old veterans and
The singing of "America" by the
vast audience closed the exercises of a
day that had been most 6acredly and
beautifully observed in Hot Springs.

Arts" to be given at the opera house
beginning at 7:30. This lecture will be
free and the public generally, as well
as all educational workers, are invited

Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Riordan very
pleasantly entertained the high school
graduating class and nearly one hun
dred friends at the Evans Monday
evening in honor of their son, William,
who was one of the graduates. The
class colors, nile green and piuk, were
profusely used in various decorations
upon the balcony, where dancing was
indulged in and the punch bowl was in
evidence—Misses Lucile Thorp and
Katherine Reeder serving the latter
with grace and beauty. Those who
did not dance enjoyed cards and games
in the hotel parlors.
Delicious refreshments were served
upon small tables in one of the parlors,
and after partaking of this inviting
feature the guests were each decorated
with a beautiful carnation entwined
with baby ribbon of class colors, Misses
Austa Evans and Carrie Conger grace
fully attending to this,
Excellent mandolin music for the
occasion was furnished by Miss Eliza
beth Ames and Ted Hummel.
Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Dornan elegantly
entertained nearly fifty young people
at their pleasant home on Minnekahta
avenue an Tuesday evening in honor
of the class of 1903—their son, Leo,
being one the graduates. The rooms
were tastefully decorated. The guests
were given a program containing topics
to be discussed for a given time, when
partners and subjects were changed.
The following subjects were discussed:
"Weather," "Class of 1903," "Latest
Fads," "Books we have Read," "Music,"
Dreams." Elegant refreshments were
served, after which each guest was
presented a souvenir in the shape of a

of Knights of Pythias enjoyed one of
their pleasant smokers at the lodge
rooms last Friday night, the gathering
being a farewell social extended to
Knight Sam Christensou, who has
purchased a jewelry business at Hot

was spent at cards and conversation
after which delightful refreshments
were served in the banquet room by J.

spoken and best wishes to Mr. Chris

broke up having passed a most enjoy

evening in their new church on Sum

members of the congregation, gave a
farewell social in honor of Mr. and
Mrs. Christenson. It was in the nature
of a surprise, and the ladies in charge
of the arrangements were successful in
carrying out the program exactly as
planned. Refreshments were served
and the evening was spent very pleas
autly in asocial way until near mid
night. After singing a couple of
hymns suitable to the occasion, and
prayer by Rev. Becknell, those present,
