manner and everyone present was

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
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
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-

Last Thursday night at about nine
o’clock a tier.ce wind rose that did
considerable damage to buidings in
this vicinity. 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
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.
