WAS SOME CELEBRATION Big Time in Sisseton on the Fourth and Fifth Despite the terrible rainfall early Tuesday morning the celebration at Sisseton on the Fourth was well attended, but owing to the muddy streets, the parade and a number of races and other sports were post poned until the next day. The base ball game in the after noon between Sisseton and Aber deen was a farce and a disappoint ment to the large crowd that came here, many especially to see the game. It was a walk away for Sisseton. The visitors managed to get one score and the locals around a dozen and a half. The very idea that the people of Aberdeen would allow such a bunch to wear the suits bearing the name '"Aberdeen" is too disgusting to think of. We have a kid team here that can put up a better exhibition of the Na tional game than they can. They were scheduled here for Wednesday but the Sisseton manager absolutely refused to have his team play such a bunch. Beardsley played at Or tonville on the Fourth, were called up and appeared on the local dia mond on Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday the second day of Sisseton's celebration was a hum mer. The morning program opened with the grand Calthum pian parade, which was a good half mile long, led by the Sisse ton Band followed by a score of mounted Indians, the Kansas City Amusement Company's own colored band, a large num ber of schoolchildren especially dressed for the occasion, a num ber of businesses, including man ager Andrews and his "Hello Girls" and several clowns, etc. After the parade an excep tionally fine address was given by Hon. C. R. Jovgenson and well received. Directly after dinner a num ber of street sports were pulled off and then came the ball game between Sisseton and Beardsley. The game was the best one ever played on the home ground. Cannonball Jackson was on the mouud for the home team and he was there all the time. The SISSETON, ROBERTS COUNTY, S. D., FRIDAY, JULY 7, l-.m Beardsley team were an even match for the Sisseton team and it was no ones game from stait to finish. The final score was ii —2 in favor of Sisseton. In the evening the crowd was again entertained by street sports aud Mr. Larson the strong man, who had been giv ing several exhibitions each day. Then to wind up with the Kan sas City Amusement Company, which was made up of local tal ent, entertained the crowd for a half hour in a ,mixed program, consisting of »elections by the male quartette, solos, buck and wing dancing, etc., and there wasn't a cabbage thrown. Taking it all through and through the celebration was a success, and too much praise cannot be given Messrs. Messingham and Prin diville for their hard and con tinuous work. Otter Tail Power Company Signs Up Several Towns C. B. Kidder, superintendent of the Ottertail Power Company, was at Battle Lake Monday evening and closed contracts for distribut ing systems and street lighting with Battle Lake. Clitherall, Deer Creek, New York Mills and Per ham. The material for the line to Perham is arriving and the engi neers will start this week to locate the line. The work of erecting the poles from Browns Valley to Sisseton, is now under way. It is very wet in that section and the men work un der more or less difficulty. The work o^Jj^e «cldition of the Hoot Lake Power house is progress ing rapidly. The excavation is well along. The big pile of dirt which was heaped up when the first part was built is being remov ed aud a much bigger tail race is being cut out. The power company is selling its electric ranges as fast as they can be secured. A second carload has arrived this spring and over 400 ranges are now installed on the system. Eleven fanners have been electrified aiid five of the eleven have bought ranges. There is one farm where the buildings are not only lighted but the farmer's wife washes, irons, cooks, churns, and curls her hair with electricity. This is surely going some.

CROPS MAKING GOOD PROGRESS According to Reports Crop Outlook is Good. Crops in northern South Dakota and in southern North Dakota are making splendid progress accord ing to authetic reports compiled by the grain dealers of this city. The past few weeks have been ideal growing weather and each dav finds an improvement in growing conditions is the gist of each re port coming from the many towns. Rainfall has been quite general in this section of the Dakotas and with prevailing warm weather the grain will make rapid headway. Although flax was seeded a little late in most sections it is neverthe less making rapid progress and is already several inches high. Alfalfa cutting is becoming gen eral all over and from reports is exceptionally heavy for the first cutting. Wheat and oats are both maturing rapidly while winter bar ley is heading out nicely and with in a few weeks will be ready for the binder. The past few days of warm weather has also made a material change in the corn crop outlook. Up to a week ago the prevailing wet spell put a dubious outlook to the corn prospects, but with the re turn of warm weather again corn progress should make rapid strides. From Rosholt Review At the Farmers' Elevator meeting last Wednesday, the same officers and board was re-elected. Divi dends and interest on the stock was paid aud other business trans acted. The salary of O. A. Bjorke the buyer, was raised from $100 per month to $125 per month. It was also decided to double the ca pacity of the elevator, aud put in a cleaner. Several new members were admitted and still there are many more farmers who will buy stock. Lefty Skoogkmd the popular and fast pitcher of the Sisseton nine has withdrawn from that organi zation and will for the time being play with the Rosholt boys. Lefty was one of the fastest men Sisse ton had. A letter was received the first of the week by Mr. J. S. Swanson of this place, from Gov. Byrne, in re gard to the organization of a comp any of volunteers to be mustered in from Sisseton and this territory. The 4th Regiment S. D. Nat. Guards are now in camp at Red field this state and in case they are withdrawn for Mexican service, which now looks very likely, Mr. Swanson will at once be commission ed by the governor to organize a company. While Mr. Swanson has never specialized military tactics he is more than ordinarily well posted on military affairs and has the right cut for an organizer and officer. He has already made in quiries aud has in fact been inter ested in the move for some time aud will experieure no difficulty in getting the men lie wants into the company, which will include quite a number of Indians, which by the way naturally make good soldiers, and easily adapt themselves to mili tary life and training.

In the territory of White Iioclr the storm was severe and a num ber of small buildings were blown over and windows smash ed in buildings. From all reports received the vicinity of Hankinson suffered the most as indicated in the fol lowing article taken from the latest issue of the Hankinson News: '"The worst wind storm in years passed over this section Wednesday evening, leaving a track of ruin and desolation in its path. That there was no loss of life is fortunate and hard to account for, considering the ve locity of the wind. ''The storm came from the northwest. Between 5 and 6 o'clock the sky took a very threat ening aspect but the storm drifted eastward and did not reach this locality until later on. Between 7 and 8 it broke here, the clouds hanging low and sweeping across the sky with terrific speed. The first heavy gust was followed by a down pour of rain, the wind continu ing to blow with unabated fury for an hour or more. In Hank inson the damage was confined principally to the destruction of trees, some of the oldest and largest in town being uprooted or broken down. Giant cotton woods along Great Northern avenue this morning lay broken and twisted, and all over town there was mute evidence of the storms violence. A few sheds and outbuildings were over turned, the plate glass window at the north side of the Green drugstore was blown in, like wise a large plate glass in the front of the Gem theatre, chim neys were blown from roofs, two box cars were minus tops, some small barns were moved from foundations, there was a good deal of window breakage, but the greatest loss was to trees. "In the country there was a lot of damage to big barns and oth er buildings. The list of losses has continued to grow through out the day as farmers came in to arrange for new buildings and repairs of those only dam aged." Dead Body of Old Man Found.

Jenck, who last fall opened the Sisseton Candy Kit chen, has been compelled to more into larger quarters to satisfac torily handle his rapidly increas ing patronage. The people of this city have for a long time been in want of such a place and since the arrival of Mr. Jenck have given his place ample pat ronage. The change in business loca tion was made the latter part of last week and everything was ready Monday morning. Mr. Jenck has installed a splendid fountain, has several booths and a number of tables. One of the features of the new place is the chocolate cream case. This case is a refreigator and the creams are kept cold all the time, which makes them delicious. Further more the candies are all made in the Candy Kitchen, which now occupies the full basement of the building.
