R.T1NAN, Publisher THE ONLY STRICTLY MORAL NEWSPAPER IN SOUTH DAKOTA Kimball, S3 50 More Strong Indorsements of It Mt. Vernon 24tli YEAR KIMBALL, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, MAY JO, 1905 NO. AIR TANK SYSTEM rrom Sioux Fails, S. IX, May 10, 1905. Mr. C. R. Tman, Kimball, S. D. Dear Sir:—When I met you at the mass meeting in your town May the 2nd you asked me concerning the lire at Mt. Vernon and what the matter was. Upon my return home I wrote to Mr. Fitch of Mt. Vernon asking him the trouble and I herewith en close a copy of my letter to him and his son's reply to same, which will ex plain themselves, and I will ask you to publish these two letters in your next issue. Thanking you in advance, I am. Yours very truly, J. L. WIHTK. Sioux Falls, S. D., May 8,1905. Mr. C. C. Fitch, Mt. Vernon, S. D. Dear Sir and Friend:—While in Kimball the other day I was informed that you people have had a fire and your system of water works proved a failure. I therefore take the liberty of asking you ot writing me an explan ation if this be true, and what the trouble was. An early reply will greatly oblige, Respectfully yours, J. L. WlllTK. Mt. Vernon, S. D., May 9, 1905. Mr. J. L. White, Sioux Falls, S. D. Dear Sir:—Yours of May 8th to C. C. Fitch will say that Mr. C. C. is in bed sick at this time and will answer yours soon. I will take the liberty of saying that the fire mentioned was a large new barn, and the doors being locked no alarm was given until the was well underway. Three minutes from the time we left the house with the carts, we had gone three blocks and had two inch streams play ing on the fire, and 55 minutes from the alarm we had the hose on the rack to dry. Frank Craft, the adjuster who ad justed the loss, remarked that it was the best piece of work he had ever found. lie said "1 do not see how the barn was saved with the start it got inside." The water stood at about 3 feet in the tank and had one foot left when we got through and the pressure hafi gone down only to 5 pounds. These figures you will have to get exact from C. C. Fitch, but as to time I can vouch for as I am time-keeper in our fire denartment. Our boys are loud in their nraise of the water-works system, and if vou bring any doubting "Tomas" this way, we can assure them of a royal entertainment. With best wishes, I remain. Respectfully, Edwin Fitcli. Mt. Vernon, S. D., May, 15, 1905. Mr. C. R. Tinan, Kimball, S. D. Friend Clate: Your card received this morning aud note what you say regarding our waterworks system. Have heard similar reports like you saw in the Gazette bub they originate from fellows who have other systems than the "air pressure" for sale, and there is no foundation for them. For this barn lire wc had ample protec tion and the system worked to per fection. but, the day before the lire the pump rods came apart and our water commissioner was just on the point of tearing things up to connect the rods when the lire broke out, and being unable to pump water we were limited to what there was in the tank, bnt it was enough—the lire was put out and the barn is standing today. This you will see was not the fault of the system but entirely due to neglect on the part of the water commissioner is not connecting the rods as soon as he discovered they were unscrewed. The reason that we want a,reservoir is that our well will not furnish sulli cient water for the pump in, case" of lire. Our system is alnghtr but like any other system no good if you havn't got the water. Fraternally yours, Guv II. SMITH. Letter From Will Certson Lidgerwood, N. D„ May 12,1905. H. Tinnu, Kimball, 8. D.

Bcnra the The Kind You Have Always Bought Sirj-aturei cf ON TO THE COAST President Earllng Announces that Mil waukee Will Build to the Coast Mitchell, S. D., May 12.—The Chi cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road, according to an announcement made today by President A. J. Karl ing while here, will be extended to the Pacific coast with the least po8 sible delay. Mr. Karling was here with a party of officials of the system, en route to Chamberlain, whence they will drive over the surveys of the line from Chamberlain to the Black Hills. The definite statement ot the in tention to construct the line to the coast, made for the first time today, is authoritative. President Karling made the announcement today through a member of his party,who conveyed it to the Mitchell Republi can, and also to the correspondent of the Tribune. The announcement is printed here in the Republican as a statement from President Karl ing this afternoon. President Karling said in his formal announcement that the line to Chamberlain will be built across western South Dakota and Wyom ing as fast as possible. The line now terminating at Kvarts will also be extended westward, and at some point in Wyoming will make a junction with the line from Cham berlain west. From this junction point a single line will be pushed to the coast as fast as possible. Mr. Karling passed through here today, accompanied by II. F. Hun ter, right of way agent, the chief engineer and other officials of the system. A party with four teams will make the drive across from Chamberlain to the Hills. President Karling, accompanied by his two sons, A. Uhrland, vice president of the Central Trust Co.t of Illinois Leslie Carter, president of the South Side Klevated railway, Chicago, and Mr. Naught, engineer in charge west of the river, left Chamberlain Saturday and drove about 75 miles west, but owing to the bads roada abandoned the idea of going to Rapid City and return ed Sunday night, leaving at 0 p. m. for Chicago on a special train. Mr. Karling had been contemplating! the trip for months, but something has alwaj's intervened to prevent. His first trip was planned to start May 15, 1904, almost exactly a year ago. The purpose of the journey was of course to look over the coun try. When Mr. Karling and party reached Mitchell on the return trip he spoke enthusiasticalty of the country to members of the Commer cial Club of that city, saying that it was even better than he expected and confidently looks for a big local business for the road right from the start. Mr. Uhrland of the Central Trust company is interested in handling the new bonds for the road to the Black Hills and will be one of a syndicate of a half-dozen men to capitalize several new banks on the line. Last Sunday's Excursion About seventy-live Kimball and vicinity folks took advantage of the beautiful weather and excursion to Chamberlain Sunday. Two trains of about ten coaches each went through, both heavily lo.ided. The first train was made up at Mitchell and picked up the« excursionists l'romjpoints be tween. The other train was made up at Sioux City, and another one fed it from Platte, Geddes and other towns on that line. The crowd was nicely entertained by a good ball game be tween a crack amateur nine of Sioux City and the Yanktous, the former winning by 4 to 2. The visitors were given an opportunity of seeing the frame work of the big pontoon draw now bsing constructed on the shore of tlieriverN and the work as far as it has progressed on the the trestle bridge. It was a sober, orderly crowd —unusually so—as they were practi all from South Dakota except the Sioux City contingent. But the wide open saloons were too much for some of the youg sports and many of them went home pretty well loaded—inside and out—with beer and whiskey. A L'niarkable frolic of tho wind happened at Mitchell last week one night during a gale which demolished the grand stand at the race track, un roofed buildings and tore things gen erally. A box car on a side track at the mill was'started, jumped the switch and hit the main track and wasblown nine miles north the city before it stopped. I 25 Reward! To anyone who will name the man who is spreading the gospel of Brule county lands farther and wider than 1 am. 1 am not only spreading the story of Brule county and her natural and cultivated lands from one end of the United Staos to the other but I am doing It all the time—in the dead of winter as well as when the birds begin to nest and the hun gry home-hunting denizens of the efete East begin to "sit up and take notice." It follows, therefore, that if you hnye any land in this county, or in Huffalo or Charles Mix, which vou want to put on the market at the going market price, I am the man you want to do business with. 1 can put your wants before hundreds of real estate buy ers, and if I can't sell the land it is only be cause the price is prohibitive. I want more lands on my list, and I want them right away. The time to sell land is when there is a demand for it, not when you have got to chase a man a hundred miles and choke it into him. I advertise your lands with no §ost to you and keep it up until I find buyer If you are on the other side—a buyer in-: stead of a seller—I have the property right on my list and you can be dead certain of getting ns what you want at a price that is bound to /. make you some money. 1 relieve wants, bring comfort to the sad and downcast and dispel all clouds of land sorrow.
