Cunningham of Little Rock, Arkansas, was nominated for the vice presidency. He is a mechanic, 65 years of age, and has been the labor nominee for governor of Arkansas as well as for congress on the labor ticket. Score One for the Bronchos. A recent cablegram from London says that the great ten-mile race between cow boys from the" wild west of the United States, members of Buffalo Bill's company, riding their bronchos against Englishmen on English horses, took place today. The cowboys came out first, winning in twenty-one minutes. The event has long been looked forward to with great and general interest, and the contest must have been witnessed by fully twenty thousand people.—Ex. Too Anxious to Hake a Kecord. With a surplus of millions in the treas ure Uncle Sam finds it impossible to pay his employes. For instance, the register and receiver receive only 75 per cent of their salary, and such is a standing ex perience resultant from inadequate ap propriations. Heads of departments make their estimates ample, but con gress, ambitious for a record for econo my, applies the knife unsparingly and without reason, hence officials must needs wait until next congress passes a defi ciency bill. Although Judge Luse has been out of office several months a bal ance is due him on his salary as register. —Times. Oome to Dakota^ We clip the following from an ex change: We know that the times are hard, and that talent is a drug in the market yet such an advertisement as the following may make us pause: 'A lady of good family, without means, with a thorough knowledge of everything, would be grateful to any one who would give her occupation, not particular as to what.' "A lady with a thorough knowledge of everything, forced to advertise for 'occupation,' and 'not particular as to what!' A lady 'of good family,' too! What a blow in the face for the theory of female education! When omniscience goes a-begging, Yassar may sorely go to—Boston." Advice to a,Young Man. And then, remember that you have to work. Whether you handle a pick or a pen, a wheelbarrow or a set of books, digging ditches or editing a paper, ring ing an auction bell or writing funny things, you must work. If you will look around you will see that the men who are most able to live the rest of their days without work are the men who have worked the hardest. Don't be afraid of killing yourself with work. It is beyond your power to do that. Men cannot work so hard as that on the sun ny side of thirty. They die sometimes, but it is beoause they quit work at 6 p. m. and don't go home until 2 a. m. It's the interval that kills. Work gives an appetite for meals it lends solidity to your slumbers it gives the appreciation of a holiday. There are young men that do no work, but the world is not proud of them. It does not even know their names it simply speaks of them as old So-and-so's boys.

The first annual meeting of the Black Hills Soldiers' and Sailors' association will be held at Sturgis on July 3 and 4, 1888. All members of the association are expected to be present, and those who are entitled to membership but have not yet been enrolled are especially urged to present their names to the secretary on or before the dates named. The pro gramme and other particulars regarding the reunion vill bo published in due time. By order of J. B. FAIBBANK, G. W. PRATT, Chairman Ex. Com. Secretary. Of No Use to Our Officials. In looking for an item yesterday a Times reporter ran against W. A. Reem er, who is always willing to help a man out. "Oh, yes," he said, "I will give you a pointer that might be utilized here in the Hills. I was in Nevada not long since, and during my stay in Winna mucka a man was found dead on the sidewalk. The coroner took possession of the body, and found a pistol in one pocket and $18.40 in another. The cor oner filed a c-omplaint before a justice of the peace, who fined the corpse $18.40 for carrying concealed weapons and then gave an Indian the pistol to bury the body."—Times. This pointer is no use to the peo ple of the Hills as they never let a man die while he has any money on his per son. A dead man in this country is al ways dead brake. The Last Herd of BuflUo- Mr. Clinton A. Snowden. of the Chi cago Times, is the originator of a scheme to save bisons that still remain on tho plains. It has been ascertained that of the millions which onco roamed on the prairies of the west only seventy-five or a hundred remain, and these are located in the extreme southwestern portion of Texas. An expedition is soon to start for Texas to round up these buffalo. The leading purpose is to perpetuate a species of animal which is thoroughly typical of American animal life one of the controlling ideas of the trip being to kill none of the animals while corralling them or after their capture. News of the work of the expedition is to be sent to the Times by carrier pigeons. It is to be hoped this laudable expedi tion will .-succeed. It would seem as if congress might do something to pro mote and encourage the preservation of this wonderful breed of animals.—Scien tific American. This expedition has already done its work, returning to Chicago with one solitary cow buffalo. The Sturgis Fire Department. The entire fire department was out on parade Thursday afternoon last. The parade headed by tho band togged out with their uniforms of gold and gray, fol lowed respectively by the Hook and Ladder boys, the Engine company, steamer and Sturgis Hose No. 1, made quito a showing and proved conclusively that Sturgis has a department to be proud of and ono that nobody can pnoeze at. After the parade the engine was placed over .the First street cistern and throwing two streams soon emptied it. Owing to inexperience in handling the pipes, the hose men succeeded in wetting nearly everybody within reach, as well as giving themselves a good soak ing. The engine showed up well, con sidering it as a new machine and some what stiff in the joints, and taking into consideration iihe fact that although handled by competent engineers, they were not thoroughly acquainted with the workings of a steam fire engine. On Saturday afternoon the engine and hose teams were out again and filled the cisterns at the intersections of Second street and Junction avenue with Main. Tho engine is doing first-class work, and when down to business can soak out a fire in short order. The Hose Boys' Ball. The ball given by Sturgis Hose No. 1, in the Opera house last Friday evening, was a .most enjoyable affair and resulted in increasing the company's hoard nearly $25. A good crowd was in attendance and just enough were on the floor to make dancing a pleasure rather than a 'torture. Through the kindness of the ladies the boys were able to furnish their own sup per, thus materially increasing the funds taken in. Mr. John Croning, of Rapid City, aoted as caller, and the Sturgis orchestra, under the direction of C. C. Moody, furnished the music. Take it all in all, the party was one of the ploasantest ever given in this city. A Vote of Thanks. Sturgis Hose Company No. 1 desires to extend its sincere and heartfelt thanks to Mesdames Potter, Aldrich, Marshall, Crow, Sabin, Henry Monheim, Anderson, Wiegand, Lane and others for their kindness in preparing the delicious sup per at the ball on Thursday evening last, and also for their untiring efforts which, without a doubt, made the ball the suc cess it was. The company «titire appreciates the labors of the ladies and desires them to understand that at any time the ladies demand the company is at their service. if5*5*: •11 »V.igi.« lit tfijut.mm Yours, at command, STUHGIS HOSE No. 1. Base ball is the greatest of American games—greater than poker. It is played by old and young in every part of the country. Nearly every hamlet has a team, all of the cities are in some one of the leagues, and every school keeps up its team. Professionals are paid large salaries—larger than teachers, editors or salesmen. Their fame extends through-1 out the land. There are more famous base ball players than congressmen. Their names are better known through the oountry, and are more frequently mentioned, than are the names of the president's cabinet. Young man, do not omit base ball from the list of profes sions you choose from.—Ex. We received a copy of a periodical bearing the peculiar cognomen of "The Writer." It is published in Chicago, and Is in the interest of all who write for publishers of newspapers or magazines. It is a thoroughly enjoyable publication, and fills a peculiar field hitherto unoccu pied.
