1P34 will long be remembered as
the year of the big free show to be
given by the grange at Lexington
on the evening of August 11th.
The men of the grange have full
charge of the show and 'nave en
gaged a colored troupe of singers
and musicians, also a hypnotist of
note who promises to put five men,
picked from the audience, under his
magic power at one time. Another
big feature is the beauty contest
(for men only). A valuable prize
will be given for the ugliest mug
stuck through a hole in the curtain
on the stage. The public is invited.
Maynard Hardy and party of
friends from Mitchell. S. D., were
guests of Mrs. Elsie M. Beach last
week. Mr. Hardy is a cousin of
Mrs. Beach. Mr. Hardy says that
although they planted their crops
twice this year everything just
burned up and they had no crops
in that state. Many of the farmers
have no feed for their stock al
though some of the more fortunate
had hay left from their 1932 and
1933 crops and by selling part of
their stock they will have enough
feed to last Some of those that
were hardest hit are just quitting
and leaving the state, hoping to do
better elsewhere. From here Mr.
Hardy and his friends went to the
coast and on to Seattle from where
they expected to take the northern
route back to South Dakota.

never wants to miss the spectacle
of the great "Westward Ho" pa
rade. In 1910 when Pendleton citi

was arriving and the old, wild
West was disappearing, the first
Round-Up was held. The Incorpor
