The Kadoka Press (Newspaper) - June 24, 1910, Kadoka, South DakotaVOLUME 111 KADOKA, SOUTH DAKOTA, FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1910 BIG AUCTION SALES EVERY SATURDAY ; DRAMAT!CC “\fyANYPRESENTS LOCAL BALLTEAM WINS THEIRSECOND GAME. At INMAN’S AUCTION STORE, Kadoka, S.D.

The Willard bull tossers were the victims this time. A high ”Tony, the Convict,” at the Opera House before a large audience. Each and every member of the company ] layed their parts in a highly pleasing manner and everyone present was well satisfied with the production.

SERR, Cashier i wind from the south was blowing and made fast playing impossible and though the score was low the game was not a fast one. In the first in- ning Willard scored three men and in the second sent another man across the plate. That ended their scoring and in the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and eighth innings only three men faced the pitcher, while in the uinth one man ot as far as second base. Th® Kadoka team scored three in i their half of the first, one in the sec- ond, one in the fifth and one in the seventh, winning the game by the score of 6to 4. The Willard boys are a gentlemanly bunch of bal) players and we hope they willcome here again on a day when the weather is not so disagreeable. A. C. Zemanek, in the role of Tony the Convict, won the hearts of the audience and acted his part well. His was an extremely difficultpart, chang- ing from pathos as the helpless con- vict, to the jolly tramp and to sad- ness in the real fathers sacrifice. Miss Elizabeth Barth had an ex- tremely difficult part as Lena Van Cruger, the reputed daughter of Judge Van Cruger, who willingly sacrificed all for her father. Miss Barth played he part extra well. Victor Wolff, as Philip Warburton, he lover, won the hearts of all by his remaining true to his sweetheart through joy and sorrow, and Vic act- ed the part in a professional manner. Geo. Emerson, as Judge Van Cru- ger and Miss Laura Peterson as the Judge’s wife, played their parts well and though the roles were difllcult ones they acquitted themselves with credit. A. G. Skrove had a double role, that of Burton, the prison warden and of Jackson, the negro footman. In both parts Mr. Skrove showed him- self to be an actor of no mean ability and as Jackson, the negro caused the audience much merriment. Miss Emily Peterson was fine in her character of Miss Sedley, the old maid, as was Miss Iva Jones, as Sallie, the maid servant and J. M. Williams, the tramp, who could “out buttle any buttler that ever buttled.. These I three had the comedy roles of the | play and kept the audience in a con- tinuous uproar while on the stage. Ben Edwards carried one of the most difllcult roles of the entire cast in that of Jaqies Barclay, the yillian, I E but he handled it in a first-class man- -4» per and showed himself to be among the leading amateur actors. # , In fact every member of the com-; pany were so good that it is imposs-: ible to describe their acting. With the presentation of this play the com- pany will cease acting until the fall when they will put on another high- class play. WIND STORM WRECKS NUMBER OF BUILDINGS. Wm.

This is the first real hard wind storm that has visited this locality since three years ago last April, when the Circle L livery barn then in course of construction, was blown to the ground. Several build- ings, out buildings, hay racks and wagons were blown over and torn to pieces and a large number of people hunted the cyclone cellars. The wind seemed to blow straight, but from viewing some of the wrecks it is ap- parent that in various neighborhoods there was a twist to it. About the w’orst damage done was the loss suf- fered by H. E. Haulman in the wreck- ing of his fine large barn which he had just completed. The barn is a total wreck and the heavy timbers badly splintered. The house, barn and granary on A. R. Kelly’s place, east of town, were completely wrecked. While the claim shanty of the publisher of the Press was strewn all over the adjoining quarter. At the fair grounds the grandstand was almost completely destroyed and the Floral Hall moved about six inches. One of the freaks of the storm was at the residence of O. O. Inman in the east part of town. His hay rack was blown off the running gears and the back wheels were picked up and turned completely over, breaking the reach, and set down again in their tracks, the front wheels not being moved an inch. The house belonging to C. C. Winter just east of town was completely wrecked by being picked up by the wind and dropped about fifty feet from where it stood. The boards were badly smashed and fit principal- ly for kindling wood. Nels Neilsons’ house and John Ma- tucha’s barn, on their farms west of town, were completely wrecked, and numerous outbuildings, wagons and hay racks were blown over. , Bargains in crockery at ZemanrtrS " DOWN PLACES one of our NEW 25 year guaranteed in your HOMEUpright PIANOS and then SI.OO per week pays the balance.
