THE SOCIABILITY RUN Many Were Mired in the Mud of the Awful Roads It rained yesterday and today, and the many automobillsts who left the city on the sociability run are now aware of the fact. Eleven cars left from Lead, joining the Oeadwood con tingent at Pluma and proceeding on toward Hill City and Sylvan lake. All of the oars reached Sylvan lake in safety, but all of them did not reaoh Lead in time for supper last night, breakfast this morning nor dinner this afternoon. Just three oars arrived in the oity from the run, and they were those of Munson, Laurence and Oool idge. All of their drivers report that the roads were in a most exeorable con dition, and that in one plaoe the heav iest of the oars had to be pulled oat of the mire by teams that the mud was op to the beds of the cars and that where the roads showed even a sug gestion of dryness they were so rough that the drivers of- the oars had to ex ercise the greatest of oaution. It was a rough trip, according to those who have arrived in the oity, and they say that it is doubtful if any of the other oars will arrive today, espeoially as it has begun to rain again. Those who have arrived in safety and on time say that they would not take the trip again for the prioe of their oars The road from Ouster City to Sylvan Lake, how ever, was in pretty fair condition, and that was the only stretch that was.— Monday Lead Call. v' SAVES HALF MILLION Members of & South Dakota's Sf" r. Railway Com mission Glad Pierre, S. D., Aug. 20.—The members of the South Dakota state railway com mission are rejoicing over the reoeipt, this morning of a telegram, showing that the interstate oommeroe commis sion had rated against the railroads generally in their demand for a weeterfi freight rate advance, The South Da kota commission was joined with those of other western states to oppose this inorease, and the telegram received is. "Commission denies advances on eiirhthy peroent of traffic involved is western advance rate oases. Advanoes denied on grain prodaots, live stook, packing house prodaots, fertilizer, hides, cotton, piece goods, and broom corn. Advance granted on (raits and vegetables from Texas, rioe from Vt. US* cs* Louisiana, on ooal exoept as to Soath Dakota, and fresh meats between Iowa aud Nebraska. All other fresh meats advanoes denied." This is the result of the bearing in Chicago, whioh oontinaed from March 4 to May 13, and the members of the state commission feel that they have accomplished a great deal for the state in securing a denial of all increases in the state, espeoially on ooal when an inorease was allowed in all other states. It Is estimated that the winning of this suit means an annual saving of at leaat a half million dollars to the people of South Dakota. WILL BE PAID AT DISCOUNT Wolf Bounty Certificate Will Be Cut Down Some Pierre, Aug. 20.--That wolf bounty certificates will be paid at the rate of about 93 oents on the dollar this year is the estimate of the state auditor de partment without figuring down to the last fraotlon. Claims have been filed amounting to 115,521, whioh mast be pro rated ont of the annual appropri ation of thirteen thousand dollars whioh is allowed by the state for the payment of suoh claims. ENTRIES GROWING Twin City Speedway Event Will Be One the Best With the ticket sales in all sections of the weBt well under way and the construction work rapidly approaohtng oompletion interest in the 500 mile race for $50,000 at the Twin City Motor Speedway on September 4 oontinnes to grow as the entries keep pouring in. Heavy rains of the earlier part of the week delayed the laying of the oonorete track a trifle but with the saooeeding days of Bunshine the speedway force was doubled and the work is now right up to the minute as far as the oontraot time limit is oonoerned. Five of the six huge grandstand* are oompleted and work on the sixth has already been started, while both of the bleaohers are well on their way. These stands and bleaohers have a total seat ing oapaoity of eighty thousand and from the advanoe aale indications every seat will be oooapied when the starter's flag drops at 10 o'clock on the morning of September 4. inquirles for reservations have been received from all sections of Minnesota, North and Soath Dakota, Iowa, Montana and Wisconsin and already two of the big stands have been sold out. Parking spaces, too, are in demand and the oa paoity of the infield will be taxed on the oooasion of the big raoe. Four bands will tarnish music for the raoe and these will be named from the best musioal organizations of the west. Rosslter's First Regiment band with seventy pieces has already been secured, while the others will be chosen in a short time, It is possible that the famous 4th Regiment Band of Watertown, Soath Dakota will be among the number. Arrangements have been made with the Colonel Laoe and Major Shepherd of the First Regiment for the pollolng of the grounds and 1000 members of that regiment will be on aotlve duty through the day of September 4 To guard against any possible trouble with fresh paint the speedway direct ors have decided not to paint the nejr stands antil after the raoe. It was thought that possibly the paint might not dry and that the olothes of spec tators might be injured if saoh were the oase. This painting will be done direotly after the raoe. ADVERTISING DEFINED Advertising—the foroe whioh enables the modern business man to disregard the distance between himself and his prospeotive customers. The foroe whioh gives a million el oquent tongues with whioh to tell his business story to the world. The foroe whioh enables him to ore ate new desires and to point oat new waye of supplying old needs. The foroe wbiob, properly directed, will make a worthy business prosper, bat whioh, no matter how cleverly ap plied, oannot give permananoe to an enterprise that is founded on false hood. That foroe by whioh a basinesa may be bailt or wreoked, and whioh, in the last analysis, brings to him who uses it just that measure of saooess that 'his efforts deserve. Advertising—the foroe whioh has transformed the parlor melodeon into a pianola, the oraoker barrel into an In-er-Seal package, the crane orsr the hearth into a tireless ilooker, and everything else in the world in like de gree.—Ex.

This evening .* grand ball will be given at the Evaus thus bringing to a close a most enjoyable week of tennis both for the visitors and for the people of Hot Springs who are always glad to wel oome out-of-town people to our oity. SHOULD BE STOPPED 5 Solicitors at Trains And on Streets Should Be Controlled First impressions are generally last ing and for this reason one of the evils that is aotioed on the visitors to this city it Be. ms to us should be abated. The first 'mpression many people have of thiB oity as soon as they step off the trains at the depot is that they have in some way landed in the oenter of a pack of wolves and that they are legit imate prey to be torn in shreds. In our work we visit the trains near ly every morning and one sight that always meets the gaze of any one as soon as the passengers alight and one that is pitiful in many instances as well as disgusting is the sight of from ten to fifteen hotel solioitore attempt ing ta secure patrons for their partic ular hostlery. People who have travel, ed somewhat soon get rid of these pests but take anyone who is inclined to be timid and life 1B a burden for them until they finally land in some hotel, rooming house or other. Should the person be robust enough to break away from the first rush they still have several leaches who will follow them about the streets endeav oring to seoure their baggage and thus get them to. follow them. In several instances it has been the praotioe of some of these hotel run ners to indulge in fist fights and other praotices among each other and some day if let go they will no doubt endeav or to praotioe this on the tourists. It is our impression that Hot SpringB has an ordinanoe prohibiting saoh praotioe and if BO the sooner it is en forced the better for everyone. If not immediate steps should be taken to see that some way of controlling these people be pat in foroe. Give them a small square at the depot platform and make them stay there. Otherwise the matter shoald be taken up with the railroad oompanies and they will promptly aot when the matter is fully explained to them. This is not written by reason of our enmity for any of the hotels but for the general good of the community for what Hot Springs needs is visitors who will oome here and after being here will either send for their friends or will oome again themselves. If this praotioe is allowed to continue it is one of the many ways of helping to kill the oity. —Evans in Baltimore American. rj!• Dr. MEDICAL FIRM MAKESCHANGE DRS.
