FORT MEADS.
Fort Meuilo is situated fifteen miles
from Doadwood, one and a half wiles
from Sturgis City, among tho northern
foothills of the Black Hille. The reser
vation is sis miles long and two milee
wide, besides a wood reserve four miles
square. Bear Butte creek, a beautiful
stream, flows through the post grounds,
and furnishes abundant water for all pur
poses.
The location of the post was selected
by General Sheridan in person, and cho
sen on account of its splendid strategic)
position in the event of an Indian oat
break. It easily commands the large
agencies, Standing Bock, Spotted Tail,
and Pine Ridge, where the great bulk of
Sioux Indians are gathered on reserva
tions, and moving either north or south,
it would be easy to intercept them with
the military force at Fort Meade nor
has the advent of a railroad done away
with its necessity for many years to
come. The post is oblong in shape.
On the southerly side are built the offi
cers' quarters, consisting of tasteful cot
tages and handsome double two-story
bouses with mansard roofs. Opposite
are the soldiers' barracks, large and com
modious, and in the rear of them capaci
ous stables. In the center, half a mile
long and a quarter wide, a magnificent
campus,, or parade, has been laid out,
affording room for cavalry and infantry
evolutions.
The post has a well equipped and or
ganized fire company-, water works
leading into the quarters for both officers
and men large and fertile irrigated gar
dens for each company. The immense
quantities of oats, com, hay, wood and
beef consumed at Fort Meade are sup
plied out ol the surrounding country.
The discipline at Meade is of high order.
The different departments under Col.
Mizner's supervision, assisted by his
most efficient staff, are models of system
atic military management. Taken as a
whole Fort Meade is the largest, most
important and best conducted post in the
west. This-post is at present the head
quarters of the 8th cavalry under oom
mand of Col. Mizner.—Pioneer.
Gifford was fairly downed at Water
town, but he kas the satisfaction of
knowing that tter& were many loyal
friends who went along with him. For
all this, Grigsby of Sioux Falls is better
known than he was before the conven
tion.—Pilot.
Anecdotes About Oe&erftl SherUlmn.
Charles A. Dana, ex-assistant secretary
of war, says in the New York Sun:
As everybody else is narrating his
reminiscences of General Sheridan, I will
also contribute mine. After the battle
of Codar Creek President Linooln and
Secretary Stanton agreed that Sheridan
should receive some special recognition
for that great exploit. They promoted
him to be major-general! in the regular
army, and when the commission was
made out the president decided that it
should be sent to the' general, who still
lay near Cedar Creek, by an unusual
messenger. I was selected for this
agreeable duty.
The next morning the general took
me on foot through his camp, and as
wpnt through the regiments and brigai
and greeted old acquaintances on every
hand I was everywhere struck with the
manifestations of personal attachment to
Sheridan. I had not seen anything like
it in oither of our great armies. Grant,
Sherman, Thomas, all moved among
their troops with every sign of respect
and confidence on the part of the men,
but in Sheridan's camp it was quite dif
ferent. They seemed to regard him
more as a boy regards the father he be
lieves in, relies on, and loves than as sol
diers are wont to regard their command
er. Finally, as wo wero completing our
morning tour and had got nearly back
to headquarters, I said to him: "Gener
al, how is this? Those men seem to
have a special affection for you, more
than I have seen displayed toward any
other officer. What is the reason?"
"Well," said he, "I think I can tell
you. I always fight in the front rank
myself. I was long ago convinoed that
it would not do for a commanding gen
eral to stay in the rear of his troops and
carry on a battle with paper orders, as
they do in the army of tho Potomac.
These men all know that where it is the
hottest, thero I am, and they like it, and
that is the reason they like me."
"On§ thing more, general," I Baid.
"Are you afraid, or don't you oare?
What is the real truth about it?
The man who says he isn't afraid
under fire," he answered, is a liar. 1
am d—d afraid, and if I followed my
own impulse I should turn and get out.
It is all a question of the power of tho
mind over the body."
The collapse of tho Southern Califor
nia boom seems to be complete. A San
Diego paper, which aided in booming its
section, teHs of one these bnrsted booms.
"Eight restaurants closed in one day,
sixteen clerks discharged from one dry
goods store, 1,600 empty rooms in lodg
ing houses, hotel rates reduced two dol
lars per day, shaving reduced from twen
ty-five cents to ten, coffee from ten to
five."

Tlie Ktckias Kicker.
The follo-R-ing extracts oro made from
the last issue of that justly celebrated
journal, the Arizona Kicker:
"Tnsa-
BOYCOTT US.—The
fact that we
have been running the Kicker pretty
much as we pleased since tho first num
ber was issued has given mortal offonse
to certain people ot this neighborhood.
We have been kicked, licked, pounded,
threatened, shot at and bluffed rigt.t
along, and have grown fat on it.
We came to stay.
Fact is, we've got to. We haven't any
thing to go on.
Having tried all other measures to
make us let go, and having failed inglor
iouely in each instance, it was deter
mined to boycott us in a social way. We
have been chuok-a-luck with the very
cream of society since our advent. In
fact, we have been most of the cream.
It was decided a few days ago by a
syndicate of the high toned that we must
be socially snubbed and crushed. Ac
cordingly Mrs. Major Bazoo, of Grizzly
Heights announced a recherche affair and
invited everybody in the set but us. It
was given out that she feared our man
ners would disgrace the occasion, and if
they didn't our clothes would.
We weren't saying a word. We saw:
the bluff and went one better. On the
night of the party the sheriff made a
haul of three high toned prisoners at the
hoose of Mrs. Major Bazoo, while a halt
dozen others broke for the woods.
We have one great advantage over the
other creams of society. We left the
east by daylight and shook hands with
the sheriff as we started. We are neither
a bigamist, eloper, embezzler, horse thief,
jail bird or gambler. We don't want to
work this lever unless some one jumps
on our collar. We have reduced tony
society over one-half since we came to
town by giving the sheriff pointers. We
can ran the other half out of town in a
week. Mrs. Major Bazoo has called to
beg our pardon and to express her deep
disgust with herself. We have forgiven
her, knowing it will not happen again.
As for Judge Cahoots who inspired the
boycott and set the crushing machine at
work, we bear him no animosity. We
will simply remark that he is a bigamist,
incendiary, embezzler, forger, perjurer
and highway robber, and we have die
patched Pinkerton to come and get him.
Our amiable and gentlemanly sheriff
entered our office day before yesterday
and in his usual urbane manner an
nounced that he must serve papers on ue.
It was a notioe of a breach of promise
suit against us by the widow Clixby,
who alleges that we have been toying
with her heart strings, and that it will
take $5,000 of our cash to settle her
thoughts back in the old channel.
It is another move on the part of wi
enemies to down ns.
We first met the widow Clixby twenty
eight years ago in Carter's groccry. She
asked our opinion of herrings, and wo.
asked her's of soap. She invited us to
call at the house and see some poetry
6he had written on the rise and fall of
the mastodon. Wo complied. We called
there three or four times afterwards, but
only as a friend. On one occasion the
widow showed us a clipping from an
eastern paper to the effect that it was
better for a man who had passed the age
of 23
to
marry a widow, if he was to mar­
ry, but we didn't bite.
We know our gait. If the widow Clix
by can prove to the world that we have
toyed with her affections we'll cheerfully
go to jail. We are not on the toy. The
widow will find us no jack rabbit, and
the enemies who have encouraged this
new move may hear something drop be
fore the trial is over.
Wednesday evening as we put on our
Mother Hubbard and sat down by the
open window to get a breath of fresh air
before retiring, a sadness suddenly stole
over us and in a few minutes we found
tears in our eyes. The query came to
us over and over again: "Is life worth
living and as we thought of the old.
homestead—the days of boyhood—the
many graves —the changes of thirty years
—the fountains of the deep ware broken
up and we wept.
Such moods do a man good. They
bring him nearer heaven's gates. We
don't know whether they come from a
disorganized liver or the near presenoe
of a guardian angel, but we always feel
a heap better afterwards. We no longer
feel a spirit of revenge. We have no
greed. We have oharity for all.
And as the bright beams of the har
vest moon steal into the office window
and throw a flood of silver light upon
the dead ads on the imposing stone—as
the south wind comes sighing around
the corner of JackaBs hill and whispers to
us the story of household graves—as the
whip-poor-will wakes from his sweet
Bleep, in the roar of Stevens' disreputable
dance house to call us to press onward
and upward and not bo discouraged, we
take down the office towel, wipe the fall
ing tears away and seek our couch with
the determination to secure a pass from
here to Omaha and return or make it so
hot for the railroads that they will have
to keep every tie wet all the yew 'j
—Detroit Free Press.
Poor General.
It was rumored on the streets in Dead
wood last evening that Gen. A. R. Z.
Dawson had proclaimed to District At
torney McLaughlin that henceforth lie
was a democrat. We congratulate the
democrats on the accession to their ranks
