this city have drawn claims in Uncle
Sam's patch. This number in 2,000

the least number to which this city
was entitled to , as placed at twelve
by The News , the gateway to the new
Northwest is playing in great luck
and wouldn't swing to the red If It
could. , ' ,
A number of prominent people have
drawn out. Among them is John B.
Barnes , chief justice in the Nebraska
supreme court. Judge Barnes drew
No. 1387. He does not consider the
chance worth going after.
The judge registered for the sake
of registering. He didn't expect to
draw out He doesn't know what he
would have done if his number had
come in the 'choice selections , as in
establishing his residence in South
Dakota he would be shifting his home
from the jurisdiction over which he
presides as supreme justice. He is
one man who couldn't very wall take
advantage of the first number if it
had come to him.
George A. Davenport is one of the
lucky ones , drawing out on No. 10CO.
Mr. Davenport is one of the members
of the firm of Davenport Brothers ,
Gustav Feabelcorn is the first Nor
folk farmer to draw. He lives five

vns informed of his drawing by The
News. When told that he had drawn
a farm , Mr. Utter looked up and
aughed , as much as to say , "You
can't fool me. "
"But it is a fact , " was insisted.
"Oh yes , oh yes , " he repeated , still
doubting. "No , you can't make me

Finally Mr. Utter was persuaded to

Then there was something doing.

CITY CLERK M'FARLAND.
Brother of the Postmaster at Lynch
Draws Out Early.
City Clerk S. R. McFarland is the
lappiest man in Norfolk today. From
.he toils of the city business , where
he was writing up the minutes of
council meetings and the like , he
ms suddenly evolved into a land
owner with a quarted section of the
jest farming country on earth , to
lis credit. And all of that without
so much as knowing what had hap
No. ICO was the ticket that came
out of the wheel at Chamberlain , to
tell the Norfolk official that he could
go up on that Indian reservation ,
ook it over and choose pretty nearly
iny old thing he wanted. He can
file on the second day.
Mr. McFarland considers his
chance worth $4,000 and thinks that
Is doing well enough for one week.
He registered at Bonesteel with
Donahue , McDonald & Donahue.
CLARENCE B. SALTER.
He Is a Lucky Mark , Without a Doubt
Got No. 555.
Clarence B. Salter Is a lucky mark
without a doubt. He already has
pretty nearly everything on earth he
wants , and here comes a great big
Rosebud farm , bouncing on his shoul
ders. He is the junior member of
the Salter Coal & Grain company , be
ing associated in business with fa
ther , G. B. Salter. He registered at
Bonesteel because he happened to be
in town. He happened to be in town
because he went up to see the crowds.
And now he's a landlord.
JOHN L. BEECH.
Conductor Who Pulled Rosebud Spe
cials Durlnfl the Rash.
If anybody on earth is entitled tea
a Rosebud farm , it is a conductor who
went through the tremendous task of
handling the crowded trains which
hauled the people up that line during
the rush. Conductor Jdhathon L
Beech of this city got a good farm
No. 470 , and his friends with him are
delighted. For the sake of those pee
pie who rode on the Rosebud trains
it is not amiss to state that Mr. Beech
is one of the good looking conductors
the rather heavy set one with a
smooth face and a smooth lot of luck
-who wore a blue uniform with brass
buttons. He is the man who alwa > s

The Practice of Medicine
The Physicians of the Large Cities the First to Adopt it and
There are Now Many Throughout the Country.
Specialism Is the Idea of the day.
Not that every physician can be a
specialist , nor would it be Justifiable
n every doctor becoming one , but
here are advantages that can be de
rived only by a special practice which
H applicable to certain communities
even though the physician himself Is
not a bona fide resident of thai Im-
nedlte vicinity. Small towns and the
country are the principal communities
n which a specialist could scarcely
irosper , but as practiced by some
specialists , that of going from one
city to another , making his visits and
seeing hl patients at regular ap-
jointed Intervals , one can derive ad
vantages far superior to those re
ceived in many Instances by a visit
to the cities.
We cite , for Instance , that of Dr.
Caldwell , a specialist of Chicago , who
s and has been making regular vis-
Is to our community for the last two
years. Dr. Caldwell came well rec
ommended and has succeeded In es
tablishing a practice far beyond her
expectations. She has made many
cures and has succeeded In building
up a reputation and practice among
those whom she has cured that would
be hard to get away from her. Dr.
Caldwell Is a lady from the new
school. Her experience and training
have been gained by many years of
practice and the treatmcnl of avast
number of cases. She confines her
self lo Iho Irealment of chronic , lin
gering and deep seated ailments. She
pretends to euro only such diseases
as she has had sufficient experience
In handling , and does not go into that
class of incurable diseases which In
many cases are useless lo bother
As a result of long experience , Dr.
Caldwell is thoroughly familiar with
her specialties. In the treatment of
cancer , consumption , heart disease ,
nervousness and female diseases ,
there are very few specialists bettor
qualified than Dr. Caldwell. Some of
her cures seem almost llko miracles.
People from far and near consult her
as she makes these regular visits and
she Is always busy from the time she
arrives until the time of her depar
ture. It is claimed by Dr. Caldwell's
friends that she can diagnose a die-
ease without a question. Tbls belnj
the case , she Is not likely to doctor
her patient for the wrong ailment ,
which is many times done by physi
cians of inexperience. Dr. Caldwell
does not treat typhoid fever , whoopIng -
Ing cough , measles , and those acute
diseases which the local homo physi
cian Is called upon to treat. It la nether
her desire to antagonize nor to take
from the homo physician that part of
the business which really belongs to
him. Many times Dr. Caldwell Is In
consultation with the home physician
and the kindest of feelings should
exist between them.
Dr. Caldwell Is charitable. In many
Instances where people are devoid
of funds to pay for their services she
charges In such cases for the medi
cine only and no person , no matter
how humble , has she over turned
away without seeking to give them
