In many places in this seo tion large dog towns destroy every ves tige of vegitation as well as other sec tions throughout the west and the government has taken this means of destroying the pests. The work of tbe crew above mention ed is confined to large areas of govern ment land but the superintendent of the foroe while in Hot Springs recent ly, stated that they would be only too glad to help the farmers in any part of the county while here. Should tbe farmers or the oounty appropriate funds snifloient to buy th& poison, some one of the men of the party would mix same properly and give in structions for using. For the benefit of our readers we give the following formula which is used by tbe Depart ment of Agriculture, Bureau of Biolog ical Survey, and reoommended by them. Directions for Poisoning Prairie Dogs Into one pint of boiling water con taining in addition one-half pint of strong vinigar, dissolve one ounce of stryohnine (either alkaloid or Bulphate.) Thioken this solution to tbe consist ency of thin mucilage by stirring in two tablespoonfuls gloss staroh pre viously mixed with a little cold water. Remove from the stove and add two tablespoonfuls of baking soda and one level teaspoonful of socoharine. Beat well until mixture resembles smooth cream, then stir in two tablespoonfuls of corn sirup and one tablespoon of glycerine. Pour over fifteen quarts of Feterite, Milo Maize or good olean oats, and mix thoroughly antil every grain is coated. Prepare poison at least twelve hours before asing and stir oc casionally until nearly dry. A galva nized wash tub is a convenient re ceptacle to use in mixing small quan tities. Large quantities as 200 quarts of grain, may be prepared at one time in a smooth tight box, by mixing with a spade. To obtain tbe best results distribute the poisoned grain in tablespoonful doses, slightly scattered, on the bard dry mounds above the prairie dog bar rows at a time when natural feed is Boaroe. Eaoh quart should treat from thirty-five to forty holes. Warm sun shiny weather is tbe onst favorable time to expose poison on large areas and if the doses are scattered, this quantity will not endanger stook on the open range. All poison and aten tials used in its preparation should be plainly labeled and kept out of reaoh of ohildren, irresponsible persons and livestock.

About four o'olook word came from oat toward Pringle that six or eight feet of water was oom ing down Cold Brook and shortly after Hot Brook was reported raising. Tbe balk of the water arrived here about seven o'olook and in a short time the river thru the oity was out of its banks. It is estimated that at one time it was abont fourteen feet above normal. The first big rush of water down Cold Brook took out tbe Burlington bridge on the way to their round house and this has not been repaired as yet so that the engine remains in the yards eaoh evening. The train leaving here at 5:50 p. m. was at Minnekahta when the flood came down Hot Brook and as several of the bridges were weakened and track washed out between this plaoe and Erskine it was unable to reaoh this oity before the following evening, On the Northwestern line between this plaoe and Buffalo Qap several of the bridges were also weakened and in one or two plaoes tho traok washed out Further d«wn on the main line below Oelrichs, the bridge over the Horse Head was washed oat and the first train over that after the flood was on Tues day of this week, all traffic north being tied up daring that time. The Cheyenne River was higher than it has ever been before for at least thirty years aooording to old timersi only one other oooasion being near it and that was this spring. Every dry run creek has been running bank full and only within tho past few days has the water gone down. The Chey enne River bridge seven miles below this oity was badly damaged. All the wooden approaches as well as the grade going oat and the steel Btraoture alone remaining. This will mean a cost to tbe oounty of perhaps $5000.00 before people soatb of the river can oross. Heavy rains have also been reported in the Northern Hills and also west in Wyoming. Railroad traffic is just be ginning to assume regular sohedoles altho all trains are late a few minuteB owing to slow orders over bad places. —From St. Louis Republia BIG CROWD COMING.

It is estimated that fully four hundred people will gather at the Lake to cele brate the opening of this road leading thru the lilaok Hills and tbe Harney national forests, and connecting the two ends of the state highway between Deadwood and Hot Springs. Construction work on this strip of road, which penetrates the most rugged and beautiful portion of the Black Hills, has been in progress since last September. The road is being built by the forest serrioe in co-operation with Pennington and Custer oounties. Fear ing two weeks ago that the work.would have to be indetlnately suspended be cause of lack of funds, various com mittees along the route set out to raise tbe neoessary appropriations to finish the work with the result that Hot Springs contributed 6300, Deadwood $300, Lead $.'500, Hill City $100, and Edgemont §100. With this appropria tion of $1,100 it is expeoted that the work will be completed before the opening of the bankers convention."
