Roseland , S. D. , Dec. 28 , 1909.
four months have passed since I
left Broken Bow leaving behind
many promises "to write. " Most
of these promises have not been
complied with for the simple
reason that we have been too
busy getting settled on our claim.
The weekly visits of The Re
publican have kept us in close
touch with the good people in
Old Custer. Now if you can
give me a little space in her
columns T will try to fulfill all
my promises "to write" with one
Having in mind many inci
dents related to me by home
steaders in Cnster county , I can
plainly see that making settle
ment on a peice of Uncle Sam's
land is by no means the task it
was a generation ago. The de
velopment of Tripp county has
been so rapid that the period of
Hardships for most of the settlers
has been very short indeed.
On the. 15th of last April , eight
months ago , I came to this corn
er of Tripp county to see the
claim I had filed on the day -be
fore. I could see fir many miles
over as fine a prairie scene as I
have ever gazed upon. Yet in
all that scope not a sign of a
building or anything that could
be called a home could be seen.
Now we have one neighbor 30
rods from us , three , each one-
half mile , three each three-
fourths mile , four about one
mile each and a score or more less
than four miles-with the town
of Koseland a litle more than a
mile away. The town consists
of four general stores , lumber
yard , blacksmith shop , meat
market livery barn , bank , post-
office and a saloon , with a school
building and a drug store build
ing being constructed.
We also have three artesian
wells in this community and
more will soon be put down. One
of these wells is one-half mile
south of my claim. It flows
about a barrel of good water per
minute. The water runs down a
draw and parses through the
corner of my claim so I have a
living stream of more than 1000
barrels per day flowing through
my pastures.
The soil is rich and deep. The
percent of rough land is small.
The rain fall is a little greater
on the average , than in Custer
county , this is probably due to
the fact that we arc near to the
Missouri river. My claim is 12
miles west of the Missouri and
10 miles south of the White
The climate here differs but
little from that ot Custer county.
We are having an unusually
severe winter and judging from
reports the same condition pre
vails with you. We have an
abundance of snow and some
bitter cold weather. I believe ,
however that we have been more
favored than most parts of Ne
braska for while we were reading
of the impassable roads in every
paper irom Nebraska I made a
trip to Dallas , thirty-two miles
from here and brought home a
load the gross weight of which
was 5760 pounds with my four
horses. Since then I made a trip
to Reliance , twenty miles north
across the White river and
through some of the roughest
country in this part of the state
and brought home 3200 pounds
of coal. Reliance and Dallas arc
at present our nearest railroad
railroad statious The North
western will build west this next
spring from Dallas across the
country. They have everything
ready to begin work as soon as
spring opens. This will bring
the railroad ten miles closer to
us. We are hopeful , however ,
that the Milwaukee will soon
build through this end of the
We have had some hard work
vnd hardships have been our lot
since coming here but we have
enjoyed it from the first and
have been blessed with perfect
health. Not even a bad cold has
had to be endured by any mem
ber of our small family.
We begun our settlement here
on August 26th by unloading the
top of our covered wagon and a
load of traps which we had haul
ed across the country from Cus
ter county. The first meal we
ate in our new home we' had
company , two visitors. They
stayed all night , we had plenty
of room and enough to eat.
After building a "shack" for
temporary shelter and a barn we
begun work on a six room house.
Good building stone and plaster
ing sand are plentiful here and
as free as the air. I'm building
the house. I have been stone
mason , carpenter , painter ,
plasterer and at the same time
farmer and preacher. How is
that for " "
"jack-of-all-trades ?
Mrs. Brady , who like myself ,
had the good fortune to be born
and grow up on a Nebraska farm
has enjoyed the work of getting
settled very much. She has
climbed the highest scaffold on
our story and a half house and
assisted in putting on weather
boarding etc. She has also
made quite a reputation in stack
ing hay and similar work. Our
boys take to farm life like ducks
to water. They are growing
fast and their appetites will
have to be left to your imagi
We hope that all our Custer
county friends who read this
letter will consider it as a person
al letter and write us one of equal
length or a little longer. We
will be more than glad to receive
the same and try to answer in
due time. All who come up this
way are invited to pull our latch
string , one mile northeast of
With kindest regards ,
Married. ' -

relatives , Rev , R. B. Bellis , of
Berwyn officiating.
A beautiful arch had been im
provised on the west side of the
parlor for the bridal party , colors
red , white and gold. When the
clock struck six the wedding
march was played and the young
people took their places under
the arch. After the ceremony

young ladies , and the groom is a
most promising young man and

Mr. and Mrs. Holster will be at
home in Sumner after Jan. 1st.
Our press this week , as all
presses arc in the habit of doing
at times , refused to operate in its
usual accommodating manner ,
and in consequence thereof the
people around this shop lost
several hours of time that honest
people usually devote to sleep ,
and the paper comes to its readers
a little late. However , our eub-
scribers will get their paper , but
where will the printer get the
sleep they lost ?
A watch party at the home of
D. M. Amsberry New Year's eve

and social chat. Light refresh
ments were served at the 'mid

thing. Over two hundred horses
will be offered for sale and buyers
will be present from the leading

"here is no reason why Broken
Bow should not have a horse

The city water works are de
cidedly on the bum. This office
has been trying for the pst three
weeks to get the water commis
sioner to shut off the water so
that we may have our pipes re
paired , but have been unable to
do so. In the meantime a con
siderable volume of water which
surely costs the city something ,
is going to waste. We do not
know whether this item will con
vey the information to the water
commissioner or not , but we hope
so. We have been unable to get
his attention in any other man
ner , hence this.

The President and tltc Corporations.
Nothing official has come from
the White house concerning the
president's attitude toward addi
tional legislation to regulate cor
porations since his message to.
congress on December 7 , in which ,
he said :
"Tho jurisdiction of the gener
al government over interstate
commerce has led to the passage
of the so-called , 'Sherman antirust -
rust law , ' and the 'interstate
commerce law'- and its amend
ments. The development in the
operation of those laws , as shown
by indictments , trials , judicial
decisions and other sources of in
formation , calls for a discussion
and some suggestions as to
amendments. These I prefer to
embody in a special message in
stead of including them in the
present communication , and I
shall avail myself of the first
convenient opportunity to bring
these subjects to the attention of
congress. "
While it has since' been sup
posed that the president might
possibly defer his recommend
ations concerning 'the Sher
man law pending the final decis
ion of the supreme court in the
Standard Oil case , still it has
been surmised that sundry other
proposals , including a federal in-
corporati n act , would be
brought to the attention of con
gress early in the current session'
Now , however , it appc.irs that
some lawmakers at Wa'slington
are advising the execul ve to
hold baclc all messages re erring
to corporation matters , < jr po
litical reasons. To this there
can of course be but the one
answer , that the presidsnl is not
a poliictian , 'nor does his oath of
office require him to further the
fortunes or suit the convenience
of any political party or indi
vidual clique. He was elected
as the executive of the whole
people , regardless of partisan
ship , and as such he will un
questionably fulfill public inter
ests by making to congress such
recommendations as he deems
the situation warrants. It is not
for congress to advise him , but
for him to advise congress ; and
when he has fearlessly done so ,
it will be up to the members of |
the national legislature to show
where they stand on his pro
posals. Bee. ;

When the dust is on the coun

and there's no one in the store
but your own disheartened self ,
and your stock is shelf worn and
everything looks stale , and bills
enough are coming in to make a
banker pale , oh , then's the time
fellow is a-feelin' kind o' blue

of the proper thing to do. In
such a situntion but one remedy
applies if you want to get the
