From its diversified industries, stock raising, grain and fruit growing, stone quarrlts, gypsum, fullers' earth, the production of many minerals, the Black Hills of South Dakota have be come known all over the world. Hoi Springs, the great health resort of the northwest, is located in the foot hills and is the leading point of inter est to those who travel our way. Reached by two of the great rail roads of the land, the Northwestern and the Burlington, we draw visitors from all over the country. Perhaps no other small city in the United States can claim a greater number of distinguished visitors than can we, for many governors, congress men,- senators, members of cabinets, four presidents, capitalists and lead ers in the social world know of us by personal observation. Hot Springs is a beautiful little city stretching alon^ Fall river for about two miles. Battle mountain on the east, and high hills on the west protecting us from the blasts of winter and giving us a most equitable temperature. While many from a lack of inti mate knowledge believe South Da kota to be a bleak, barren, wind swept, blizzard-scourged state. Hot Springs enjoys a climate distinctly her own. We enjoy conditions that prevail in regions lying hundreds of miles south, to which we acid the in comparable advantages given us by means of the higher a'.titude, Hot Springs lying 3,400 fet above sea level. Hot Springs has more days of sunshine—an average of 352 days ol' sunny weather ajiown by recods kept for eight years—but few hot days in summer and few very cold days in winter, pleasant through the day and always cool nights, inducing refresh ing sleep. The surroundings hills are pine elad and from the trees is ever distilled a balsamic odor, pleas ant and so necessary to restore to perfect lieaUli those suffering from lung and throat troubles. The medi cinal waters from springs, perhaps seventy-five in number, are unequall ed. The temperature is above blood heat, just right for the human body, requiring no cooling, and averaging danger from taking sold from cooling after you leave the bath. The waters are absolutely free from malaria, which is unknown at any other re sort, and marvelous cures are effected We have seen helpless rheumatics carried from the train on stretchers and within a week able to walk without attendants or crutches. The waters will cure acute, inflamma tory or sciatic rheumatism, neuralgia, catarrh, dyspepsia, kidney troubles and all classes of skin diseases. Hot Springs has two of the finest plunge baths in the world and a num ber of bath houses, elegant in ap pointments and thoroughly equipped for baths of aU kinds. Our hotels are many and good. The finest, the Evans, will rank with any coutside of the larger cities. It is a magnificent huilding of five stories, constructed of pink sandstone and will accommodate 450 guests. Here you will find all the comforts of home life and all the pleasures that tourists expect. An orchestra is in attendance and formal and social parties are of frequent occurrence. Many places of interest are close to Hot Springs, affording opportunity for pleasant times. Several tennis courts and the fin est gclf links in the west provide means of whiling away many hours in pleasant recreation. Hot Springs has three banks, one national one state and one savings bank, and the deposits aggregate close to $350,000, indicating pros perous conditions. The usual number of business houses are here, the largest stores carrying stocks of goods equal in size to metropolitan enterprises. Hot Springs has several churches, the Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodise, Kpiseopa!. Congregational and Cath olic. Fraternal societies are numerous among them the Odd Fellows, Mas onic, Redmen, Woodmen, Workmen, Brotherhood, Yeoman, Pyramids, Maccabees, Royal Neighbors, Ee bekahs, Eastern Star and Degree of Honor. Two newspapers, the Times-Her ald and the Star, cover the field and give all the local news, both offices having well equipped power and job pVins in connection*. A splendid system of water works and electric lighting gives good ser vile, and the company is putting in $?b,000 in improvements this season. Our public buildings rank with those of the average tcity, most of them being substantial stone struc tures. Hot Springs has a wholesale bot tling works, the equal of which can not be found between Chicago and Denver, and their waters an shipped all over the west. The Hot Springs Plaster company manufactures and ships the finest grade of waU and dental plaster, and its products go east to Illinois and west to the coast. Several stone quarries close to Hot Springs, and in fact one within the city, furnish unlimited quantities of! building stone in several colors. Deposits of fullers' earth are be ing developed close to Hot Springs and the article is superior to any found elsewhere. Hot Springs has the South Dakota Stats Soldiers' Home, a fine four story building that houses and takes good care of about 225 of the defen ders of the flag. Three years ago Uncle Sam decided to locate a national sanitarium in Hot Springs and today a magnificent group of buildings of sandstone, al most completed, stands on the heights back of the Evans hotel, and when completed will represent an outty of perhaps $2,000,000. A national park of about 8,000 acres surrounds the buildings and much money will be expended in improving these grounds. Every citizen knows that the gove ernmcnt in selecting Hot Springs as a proper place for such an inslitutio.i puts ^ts seal of approval upon the value of the waters, climate and al titude of our city and all tiro %vorl.l may safely try these remedial agents when in need of help. Hot Springs is growing and shows a larger per cent of gain in popula tion since tlie census of 1900 than any other town in the Black Hills, among which it ranks third in size and in the state it stands twelfth from the head. In conclusion we will quote what ha.s been said of us by some of our visitors. Forty-eight eminent physicians from Illinois visited Hot Springs in May, 1004, and, among other things, said: Taking into consideration the ease of acess, the ample and comfortable accommodations that are provided at moderate cost, and the healing properties of the mineral waters, it is evident that the Hot Springs of South Dakota afford opportunities for rest, recreation and recovery of health that are not surpassed by any similar re sort in the country. To the members of the- medical profession who are seeking for theid patients a location that shall combine the advantages of northern and southern climates, east ern and western levels of elevation, attractive scenery and the comforts of civilization, associated with social and .simplicity of life, this place can be most confidently recommended. .HENRY M. LYMAN, Chicago. E. P. COOK, Mendota. J. W. POWELL, Peoria. WM. A. ELDER, Bloomington. E. KTiLLWELL, BAILEY, Chicago. A distinguished ex-mayor of Chi cago says: My wife is well, and happy that she went to Hot Springs. My nephew's wife, Mrs. D. H. Sherman of Dutch ess county, New York, now thinks she must visit the springs and will be there soon. I believe that when the American people know of the great curative powers of the Hot Springs of South Dakota you will have to build more hotels. The climas is so much better than that of Hot Springs, Ark. SAMUEL W. ALLERTON, Chicago. One of Iowa's popular ex-governors says: I regard Hot Springs, S. D., as one of the most beautiful health and pleasure resorts in this country. The excellent quality of the waters, the magnificent plunge baths, the high altitude and the beautiful scenery ali render it on attractive and health restoring locality. 1: am satisfied that, as the peopls become better acquainted with the special advantages of this place, it will rival any resort of its kind in this country. FRANK D. JACKSON. Edgemont, a prosperous town of about 400 people, is the junction point of the Burlington railway,, yhere the Black Hills line and the western route seperate. It is also a freight division point, many railroad men making their homes there. Edgemont is the center of an extensive sheep range, large shipments of sheep and wool being made fro mthere every year. Oelrichs and Smithwick are stock shipping points on the Northwestern railway, and are surrounded by splendid stock raising and agricul tural lands. ,, Going to Kea by Kail Reads like a fairy tale but is an ac complished fact. One of the most in teresting and difficult feats of railroad engineering was the building of a bridge known as the Lncin Cut-Off across the waters of Great Salt Lake. This is one of the sights for passen gers on their trip to California over the Union Pacific. Be sure your tick et. reads over this line. Inquire of A. K. Carts, T. P. A., Omaha, Nebr. FALL RIVER COUNTY. Fall River County is located in the extreme southwest corner of South Dakota, at the southern extremity of the Black llill». The Countv extends thirty-three miles from north to south, and fifty-one miles from east to west, containing over forty-seven townships, or over one million acres of land, and has a population of less than Ave thou sand people- Tlie topography is varied the foot hills covering about one-eighth of the country, being broken and cov ered with pine trees, not so dense, how ever, but that the land has excellent grass and makes the very finest range for stock. The soil of these hills is also of the richest and most productive quality. Among these "foot hills" are many parks or openings, which have been located upon and are cultivated, producing magnificent crops and making beautiful, profitable farms. The other portion of the county is mostly prairie lands, excepting along the streams, which are lined" with cotton-wood, elm, ash, and a variety of trees. Portions of this are rugged and somewhat broken by undulating hills, while quite an extensive area is beau tiful prarie hind, with occasional small streams. The Cheyenne River flows across the full length of the county with two beautiful tributaries iu Fall River and Cascade Creeks. Altogeth er the topography of the county is most fascinating with its broken rug ged loot hi lis, covered with evergreen trees, furnishing lumber and fuel for the domestic uses of farmers and townspeople, and its adjoining open praires with occasional streams skirt ed with timber, mukes a varied combi nation not often found in t,h west. The soil of the county is of the sandy loam, exceedingly rich, producing a splendid growth of native grasses which have proven most nutritious and valuable for stock raising. These grasses mature before frost comes in the fall, thus making hay of it in its natural shale upon the ground. [Upon this grass horses, cattle and sheep thrive through out the winter without any other food and without any shelter save the nat ural protection so magnificently rend ered by the numerous canyons. Although this is within the semi-arid region farmers are familiarizing them selves with the soil and cenditions so that they are each year succeeding iu growing better and a greater varities of crops. This year they have been exceptionally successful and have grown enormous crops of everything. Wheat, oats, barley, rye, corn, and in fact all kinds of grain have yielded abundantly—wheat yielding in some instances thirty bushels to the acre oats seventy-five barley fifty, ana corn is expected 'to 'yield as high as fifty bushels, Vegetables of every kind have produced immensely, and 110 finer quality is grown anywhere. In fact Fail River County vegetables have a reputation for quality and flavor flint is unsurpassed, and although the county for years was supposed to be adapted only to stock raising it is proving itself to be a grand agricult ural county. There are several young orchards within the county that arc proving to be a source" of great profit to their owners, and have established the fact that fruit can be grown here as suc cessfully as in any other portion of the United States, and it has a flavor that makes it exceptionally desirable in all markets." Apples, pears, peaches, plums, prunes, cherries, grapes, and all varities of smaller fruits thrive splendidly here, One of the oldest orchards in the county, consisting only of aboutj.four acres, has yielded its owner from 81,500.00 to 32,500.00 annually. Most of .these fruit farms are under irrigation, but much fruit is being ^successfully grown without irrigation. There are withtn the county several thousand'acres of land now under irriga tion, by whtcli it is.iof course made to yield enormous [crops. Where land has been placed under irrigation jit is valued at $50.00 to,$100.00 an acre, according to its development and location. The gov ernment reclamation bureau has made a preliminary examination of what is termed the "Cheyenne River project" and has pronounced it feasible. This enterprises will be" the second undertaking in South Dakota, work upon which will be com menced next spring. There are about thirty thousand acres of beautiful fertile prairie lands that can be irrigated from this ditch, the water for which will be taken from the Cheyenne River. The land under this'project is consider ed by the government engineer who ex amined it as the finest of any project the government has in view. Fall River County has become known as one of the. finest stockraising portions of the west. Its wild, nutritious grasses, are famous, and being at the extreme southern portion of the Black Hillsit has that pro tection from cold north winds and storms that are enjoyed by no other location. The climatei is ideal. Deep snows are never known in fact but very little snow ever falls, or remains to any depth upon the ground—cattle, horses and sheep getting their own living all the time. This coun ty is jreconized as] having a climate peculiarly its own, being alwaya warmer in winter than any other county in South Dakota. Its ^location is such that the "Chinook," or warm winds from the P*ci fic coast have much to do with moderating the atmosphere throughout the winter, Within the county are some of the finest stone quarries to be found in the Uuited States, some of which have been extensive ly developed, the stone having been used for several government building in various parts of the country, and the railroads are annually using large quanities. Among the best grades there are four distinct colors pink, grey, red and white. Many men are annually employed at these quarries and the industry is becoming one of great importance. Near Edgemont there are extensive quarreries of a very fine quality of grind stone, which have been developed suf ficiently to guarantee an unlimited quantity of high grade grindstone. Coal also abounds within Fall River county, one deposit having beed opened up and developed to ah extent that gives indication that it can be profitably mined when railroad connections are made with it. No locality in the west is more favored with streams that furnish extensive water power than is Fall River. The stream that bears the name of the county (Fall River) is already utilized, furnishing ex tensive power for the lighting (electric) and pumping of water for the city of Hot Springs and ample power for other purposes. The Cheyenne Falls are as yet unharnessed, although it is one of the fin est natural water powers in the Black Ilills which if properly made use of would supply electric motive power for lighting and in dustrial purposes thoughout the southern Hills, Two great railway systems the North western and Burlington have lines in to Fall River county, one crossing the eastern and the other the western portion of the county, north and south, and both running spur line east and west to Hot Springs, the county seat, thus furnishing convenient stations for travellers or mar keting purposes from all portions of the county. There yet remains a large amount of government land in Fall River county, which may be filed upon under the home stead act Si.].00 for 1G0 acres and there are also many choice tracts of deeded land that can be purchased remarkably cheap. Land is now at low water mark will never be so cheap again. With two more railroads coming direct to the Black Hills from the east, and a strong probabili ty that one of them at least will build to and through Fall county thus giving three of the greatest railway systems of America real estate is certain to make a rapid rise before the coming spring, prob ably more than doubling its present price. There are indeed rare opportunities for obtaining splendid ranches for farming or stockraising, as well as a few choice chanc es to secure irrigated lands. Homeseekers who are looking for a plea sant place of residence where they may find health, enjoy life, and have an oppor tunity to improve their financial condition, will never regret investigating the advant ages offered by this most delightful region —Fall River County, South Dakota.
