The Names of Those Wlio Have Taken
a Leading Part in lie Moyc

'--sirv: •,?'~
Somelliing That Pierre People Can
View With (lie Utmost Satis
faction.
A.person lias small Idea of the property
improvements that have been made In
the city thissprlng, in the way of beauti
fying residences and grounds, without a
drive over the different streets and tak
ing a note of what has been done. Pierre
dates her growth during the ten years
past, but never, except in a few Isolated
cases, in all that time has any general
effort been made to adorn premises by
setting out trees, keeping them alive,
caring for lawns and otherwise ornament
ing the city, except during the present
epring.
In Yankton, which has the honor of
being the oldest city in tho state, its
people have long since looked after
these matters, and with a result that it
has been the making of a city unequaled
in beauty in the west, and to which can
well be applied the saying "You can't
see the city for the trees." With a fow
more years of the work that has been
practiced the present season, Pierre will
begin to rival Yankton as "a thing of
beauty and a joy forever." The
PRESS
has been to some pains to gatuer
these improvement notes by a two-hours
drive over the city, and herewith pre
sents the results of such observations,
with an apology, of course, to all those
who were unintentionally missed In the
note-taking:
One of the prettiest and finest streets tn
the city Is Prosi ect. Here will be found,
as a whole, about the finest residences,
grounds upon which have been expended,
the most care, and where trees and shrub
bery greet the eye In the most profusion,
of any street in the city.
Beginning at its east end and. north of
the capital grounds are the residences of
P. H. Baugau and E. L. Bjoberg, where
good efforts have been put forth towards
setting out trees and keeping up a lawn,
with some grading done.
The handsome residence and surround
ing yards of H. J. Siems show good
marks of improvement this spring, in ad
dition to what has been done in the past.
Seymour Smith, who has made the pur
chase of a neat residence adjoining the
Baptist church property, has been im
proving the same by an addition to tbe
cottage, grading the premises, with a
good lawn and plenty of shade trees.
TbeWimmer cottages also show that
they have not been neglected in the
spring roundup, as well as the cottage of
J. A. Rose, down Bishop street.
Skipping several premises where the
efforts already put forth to Improve seem
to have lacked nothing in the past, the
property of Judge Mead is reached,
where sand, gravel and rock are ready to
be converted Into a stone wall to protect
the bank left by the graders, and with
other improvements noted.
Tbe residence of C. C. Bennett has been
undergoing extensive repairs, in the
shape of verandas, etc., while a lawn and
trees are adding beauty to a naturally
fine location.
J. L. Keyes' handsome residence prop
erty also shows marked improvement in
the way of lawn, trees and sbrnbbery.
The cottages of Henry Karcher. and
Geo. Smith, near the w'estern terminus of
the street, have been undergoing good
changes, with grading, trees and shrub
bery. It is here that the grade just being
completed shows cuts tn some places 35
or 40 feet deep, and presents a picturesque
scene that would well repay a visit.
E. B. Grilley's neat cottage and prem
ises come in for a gpod share of attention,
in the way of trees, lawn, flower beds aiid
other attractive features.
Near the boat landing and at the west
ern end of Retreat street there are many
signs of thrift apparent, and much enter
prise displayed in carlnfi for lawns, trees,
etc.
Coming back along this and side streets,
additions In the way of trees,- starting
lawns and improving those already grow
ing are noted around tbe premises of S.
C. Hays, Dr. Robinson, W. H. Oleckier,
John Sutherland, A. W. Johnston, E. P.
Andrews, E. S. Palmer, P. W Cemford,
A. D. Marriott. H. R. Horner. D. S. WIN
lianas, Dell Coy, etc., not exceptlug th#
exteusfve work going on about the' court
bouse and state house grouuds.
Starting at the Catholic church prop
erty on the higher plateau, and goto#
north along Euclid avenue, passing many'
minor Improvements, the fine* la§rns^
flower gardens and trees started this
spring are noted arttund the cot'tages of
'Bankers Ewart. Blnrord and Capnnins,
wbich alone would do wonders In beaq|l

other She dwelling owned by Gen. Stough
nowjim the way to completion.
On,East End street C. L. Hyde's lawn
and.trees show that good care has been
given them this spring, while Dr. Hoyt's,
George Thayer's and Engene Cutting's
handsome premises also show that noth
ing-has been lacking in the way of grad
ing, watering lawns, setting out trees,
etc. Several other cottages on this
street, the names of whose owners could
not be learned, are also on the list. Geo.
McMillan's property is down for a gener
ous amountof labor In beantification.
East Pierre Is by no means behind the
times, as the extensive improvements
tbere denote.
L. E. Gaffy's cottage has been freshly
palmed and otherwise Improved.
John S.White has added a lawn and
trees, and keeps the same well watered.
Pratt and Weliman each have among
tbe fiuest lawns in the city, and are con
stantly adding new attractions to their
places, like trees, shrubbery, etc.
J. H. Owen, in connection with a new
verandah along the east side of his hand
some residence, has started a lawn,
graded the premises, set out a large
number of trees, and has constructed a
stone wall along the Decatur street fac
ing this spring.
J. C. McManima follows suit with a
fence around his premises, plenty of
trees, a lawn, etc., to add to the general
attractiveness.
Hii-am Hatch shows like industry
around his Decatur street residence,
while the residence of Mrs. John Stone,
on the same thoroughfare, is graced with
several rows of shade trees.
Mayor Templeton has planted new
trees and shrubbery, and otherwise em
bellished his Erskine street property,
while Coe I. Crawford has brought his
premises up to grade, and is watering a
lawn and uumerous trees that promise to
make It equal to the best.
The
FKEE PRESS
FKEE
has only attempted to
note dowu those that have gone'ahead
with'the most marked improvements, and
might dwell indefinitely on the minor
work in this line that is everywhere
about, but time and space forbid. It is
only to be hoped that it may become gen
erally contagious, and that there will be
no slacking until Pierre can rightfully
claim the honor of being the handsomest
city in the state, as her location would
soon entitle her, with a proper effort for
a-fewyears to come.
Never a Belter Time.
Northwestern Progress: There should'
be aa^rganlited effort in ail the western
sui^toatt^tiiiimlgration, but unfor
tufidjhy there Is' not.' 'UfttH 'the last leg
iSflatbre abolished the offlcefof commission
er of Immigration South Dakota had a bu
reau for that purpose, but now she is with
out it and the advertising of her resources
must be left to individuals and towns,
which Is unsatisfactory to sav the least.
Of course any town which has an organ
ized bureau to advertise it Will reap rich
rewards, but few towns art doing this,
and comparatively few will do it, hence
the necessity of statesupervisjon. Appar
ently there never was a better time for
presenting the claims of the northwest
than nox, as there seems to-be a general
turning in this direction for. information
as to what we have to offer. Farmers are
looking for new locations to carry on their
operations where land is cheaper and op
portunities greater. Every state in the
northwest can offer inducements to them.
Manufactories in the ea!St are looking
aboutto see if there are notother localities
where the raw material and consumers
are nearer together than they have them,
and where as a consequence the profits
of their business will be greater. Every
northwestern state can fill tbe bill. So
it is in ali the different lines, and all thaft
is necessary is to bring the different inter
ests together. This makes a grand oppor
tunity for organized effort. Vs
Sheep a Sueeeea.
Northwestern'Agriculturist: Sheep are
proving very satisfactory stock in the
Dakota&and 'Minnesota, and the flocks
will be increased Whenever possible this
season. Capitalists are buying sheep, in
many localities, and puttin^sthem out on
shares, in the hands of careful farmers,
with good results and are ready to buy
and put out more. This enables farmers
to get a start in sheep without going in
debt and with a few to start with it is
surprising how soon a large flock grows
out of the small'beglnning.The conditions
of soli and climate seem to favor sheep
growing in the northwest,- and it is clearly
destinedto be it favorite branch of farm
ing, and one wl^lch will do more.for the
semi-arid as well the
.more favored .re
gions than ail the money the government
jroiild be. induced to spend in irrigation.
