HOT SPRINGS, SOUTH DAKOTA,FRIDAY, FEBRUARY i4.
A Delighted Crowd.
Last Saturday evening the opera
house,was crowded to its fullest cay
parity, when, under the directfon of
the M. E. ladies, an entertainment of
more than ordinary merit was given.
The vocal numbers by Mrs. C. W. Har
gens were charmingly rendered, great
ly to the delight of all, while the piano
trio by Miss Denman, Mrs. West and
Mrs. Matteson, won the plaudits of
the hearers.^ As pianist, John Evans
always delights the people, as he cer
tainly did this time. The "pantomime"
—an experience in Hot Springs—was
one of the amusing things that con
vulsed the audience, wherein Dr. Mat
teson was the dentist who pulled a
molar for Ward Stanley.
The two-act comedy, "Sunbonnets",
in which eleven of Hot Springs fair
women took part, was the hit Of the
evening, and great praise is dud Mrs.
Warner for the tireless efforts put
forth oy her to make it a success. As
alight and most taking comedy it was
certainly a mirth-provoking success,
and each partioipant acted her part as
though she were no novice.
The tableaux, "Reveries of a Bach
elor", was an attractive and greatly
appreciated number. In his reveries
the bachelor saw his first love, the
summer girl, widow, Japanese girl,
golf girl, winter girl, society girl, col
lege girl, the nurse, western girl, auto
mobile girl, and last, again his first
love. Each character was beautifully
gowned and artistically poised, while
John Mueller's eleotric stereopticon
lights were thrown upon them,
making the scene most beautiful and
striking. Thete characters were ad
mirably selected and well sustained.
Mrs. West appeared in the final
number as "His First Love" and clos
ed by reciting that exquisit poem, "My
Ship", by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, in a
most fascinating manner.
It was an evening of enjoyment to
the large number present and brought
the society S85 50.
"A lilother" Talks Library.
The ladies of Hot Spriugs are firm in
their determination to contiuue to
have a library and reading room.
It is simply a question as to how
it is to be maintained. We are
not voters, but we are workers. The
assistance we have received during the
past year represents the intelligence'
and generosity of our business men,
and while we regret thenecessity
which forces us to continue our appeals
to them for aid, our council in its wis
dom seems to make such a procedure
With over nine hundred visitors in
our reading room during the month of
January, we are satisfied that but a
small proportion of our people agree
with the city council in tabling a re
solution asking the subject of a levy
for library purposes to be brought be
fore the people for a vote at the com
ing election. There must surely be a
redress for us from such an action, for
it neither represents the wishes or re
quest of the tax payers and voters of
Hot Springs, who signed the petition
which the law makes necessary and
council asking for their co-operation
in the matter. This is a question of
vital importance to every parent in
Hot Springs. If we are to make our
homes here, invest our savings, and
sacrifice the best years of our lives
struggling to give our children some
of the advantages which are afforded
in even smaller places than Hot Springs
we should ask ourselves why it is so
difficult to secure favorable action
upon a question of such impoitancr,
why we must send our children away
from Hot Springs rather thau make an
effort to improve conditions here.
