The Wave desires a correspondent in every neighborhood in the country. Write for terms.

E.H. Wood, of the State Bank at Lane, S.D., a new bustling town 100 miles north of here, was in town last evening the guest Mr. and Mrs. Amundson.

John Jirieck is among the enterprising men of town and by his work he shows his faith. He has a clean, up-to- date meat market that would make some larger towns ashamed.

P.S. Everst, chief clerk and M.D. Colgrove, issue clerk of the Yanktons at Greenwood, were in town Sunday, as was also J.E. McCraig, one of the traders there, who incidentally took in the ball game.

C.J. Allgood occupies part of teh Wave building exhibiting the latest patterns of the cash register. His latest machine will register a man's breath. So while he is in town don't give yourself away.

"Teddy" Hinzeman was up from Wagner last night on his westward trip for the Wagner Cigar Factory and left a good supply with our merchants. His factory will soon get out a "Lake Andes" brand.

G.M. Caster of Riverton, Neb. has been in town for several days and is seriously contemplating location here as an attorney. He is a most agreeable gentleman and The Wave trusts he may decide to remain.

David Dudley of Greenwood an Indian boy whom the Wave editor about 15 years ago taught to set type while superintendent for the Santee Normal Training School renewed his acquaintance with the editor Saturday.

The Wave has much enjoyed the companionship of M.E. Parham of Burr Oak, Mich., a photographer of high merit and a young man of splendid character. He is in the country partially for his health and with a view of location in the future.

A.M. Evans of Searsboro', la.. has been in town for a few days looking up a location for a buisness [sic] and has about decided upon Lake Andes as that location. His wife is a former educator in Iowa and will bring an experience whose quality is worthy of attention.

The Sioux Grain Company has its elevator well under way, but on Tuesday was considerably delayed by reason of lumber delays. The foundation for Major J.W. Harding's elevator is ready for the builders but the delay of lumber is the same reason why his is not pushing ahead faster.

Wagner New Era, 29: Albert Amundson and family came from the Lake Monday morning to finish packing their household goods, preparatory to moving there to that town. He reports the town still growing, and predicts that it will not be long till they have the largest town in the county.

O.M. McBaide of Tripp and Miss Bellows of Spirit Lake were the guests of the former's brother, A.G. McBribe, Sunday. They were delighted with the location of Lake Andes, and Miss Bellows especially was surprised to see such a growth in town building.

Rev. and Mrs. Peck, of Armour accompanied by their son and daughter were in town Monday and purchased resident lots in the northwest part of the town and are going to erect two dwellings this summer. They are pleased with Lake Andes and satisfied to see the sun go down here in their retirement.

Agent Ramsdall moved into his new quarters in the depot Wednesday morning and he had an unusual smile for every patron when they congratulated him upon getting out of the old sweat box. The depot is similar to the Wagner station but some interior improvements not found in any of the older ones.

The following Armour visitors were in attendance at the baseball game Saturday: Mrs. Roberts, Mrs. Kospers and mother, Mrs. Foster, Miss James, Miss Dallie Sterns, Misses Kospers, Lizzie Roberts, Mr. Roberts, Mrs. Boling, Lorice Boling, Beard Boling, Charles Black, Mr. Worer, Partie Sterns, and Harry James.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Steele and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Frush of Tyndall were the guests of M.P. Steele last week and on Sunday accompanied the Armour people on their homeward lake trip on the Belle of Andes. The return trip was by moonlight and the pleasures of the trip with its variety of excitement and novelties of navigation will be remembrances long to be related.

The Wave acknowledges editorial grips from Bros. Roy Tucker of the Geddes News, V.A. Wecher of the Geddes Record and A.H. Pease of the Wagner New Era. A.J. Reichmann of the Record also handed out the grip with considerable vanity and a faraway look, being the lucky printer to draw No. 136 in the Rosebud lottery. O.P. Baker, H.D. Jelm and N.R. Reynolds were with Gedees editors.

The initial number of The Wave published here was eagerly sought last week. It was in the hands of every stranger, and those from the east came in for extra copies to send home. "This is a pretty young town to have a newspaper," said one gentleman, "and it's all right, for you are going to have a good town here. The country surrounding Lake Andes justifies your enterprise and will support it. I predict a thousand for your population in the next two years." In the meantime The Wave hopes to do its share of the pushing to that end and merit a patronage that such service is entitled to. In way of suggestion, it will materially assist the editor if personal items of friends visiting any of The Wave's readers, or any other items, are left at this office. A little item may often serve for a text to a good local story, and this paper wants the people its partners in the news. A subscription, of course, is always in demand.


Depot Grounds Graded for Extra Trackage — Big Hotel Talk.

Betts Bros. grading gang pulled in here Saturday night and went into camp south of the track. The grading of the depot grounds began Monday morning and excellent progress is being made toward levling up the premises preparatory to beautifying them next spring. Additional trackage will be laid for the convenience of the five elevators to go up, three of which are already under construction, the stockyards, coal sheds and water tank. Several weeks will be occupied in finishing the work, and when completed it will make us appear as if we were settling down to business.

"We are moving on the hotel project," said J.R. Arnold to The Wave itemizer, "and as soon as Mr. Andrews returns from Oyster Bay we will bring the matter to a showdown. Andrews is warming up to the subject as he sees the necessity of a large hotel, and it will be urged now."


In order to introduce my work as a Photographer, I will give to ALL who come on next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon for NEXT WEEK ONLY a portrait of themselves FREE. A.G. SCHMIDT GALLERY.


Strangers Stop to See the Wonder Town Lucky County Men.

Many people are passing thro [sic] Lake Andes who are looking up locations after becoming satisfied that their chances for a mansion in the sky are better than one in Rosebud. "We like your get-up," said F.D. Colgron of Algona, Ia., who, with N.S. Bruner of Chicago and F.E. Silvers of Council Bluffs, drove over from Bonesteel Tuesday and took a fish in the lake while their team rested. "It is simply beautiful about here, and a more desirable location for a town in this county could not be found. The soil is here for a rich agricultural country, and there is none better anywhere than right about Lake Andes." "It surprises me," said Mr. Bruner, "that you have such a law-abiding class of people here, for I am told you are yet without organization in the town. It speaks highly of the good sense of the population."

"No. 786 doesn't quite come up, to Platte's 8 nor Geddes' 36 in the Rosebud drawing," remarked Irving Daly, "but Lake Andes is on the ground floor in the land selection. I shall go up in a few days and make my selection."

A.G. Schmidt's furniture store has a fine line of pictures and mouldings to frame them. Prices right.

Commodore Latham of the Belle of Andes has issued invitations to the editors of Charles Mix and adjoining counties to mtake a spin on the lake August 11, accompanied by the families or best girls. The ocasion promises to be one of pleasure where we can chew the bait for the finny tribe instead of one another's scalp. The visiting editors are reminded that this is forbidden ground and sarsaparilla is hard to pronounce when one's awfully dry.

Miss Martha and Master Lee Swett of Tyndall, sister and brother of Dr. Swett, were guests of doctor and wife last week.
