Rist Describes Surveying Trip of 50 Years Ago. H. ®. Rist told the Kiwanis club last Thursday of a surveying trip he made '60 years ago through South Dakota to lay out the line followed by the Milwaukee railroad from Chamberlain to Rapid City. The Milwaukee had 'been built to Algona in 1870, the first train having arrived August 11 that year The road had its terminal here seven years, then moved on west. Mr. /Rist was first surveyor for the line from Rock Valley to Chamberlain. At tiipes during the survey the party had to pay a nickel for a drink of water. Mr. Rist particularly rememtoers reaching Mitchell, then a pairie settlement, with antelope within a mile or so of town. Chamberlain was still unsettled, and stepped out of the settlement a few feet meant stepping into the wilds. Friendly Indians as Guides. In 1883 Mr. Rist was called to help survey from Cham'berlam to the Black Hills. There were twenty men in the party, with three frieght wagons. They took with them 20 fat steers for food, driving the animals, but game was so plentiful that they 'killed only one beef and that was for a change in diet. Mr. Rist said they must have killed- HOO dear and antelope on the thip. The party had forty Indians as an escort. The country was an Indian reservation, but the Indians were still wild. Once they were closely watched by wild Indians. An Indian on a horse would be sitting on top of each hill which gave them^ a commanding view of the party. Indians Not So Friendly. The Indians escorting the party went ahead, and after a parley with strange redmen they returned and told the whites that to go on would be dangerous.' The head engineer disregarded the warning and continued. The number of Indians increased till it became evident that a battle might occur a any moment. Then the party fell back, and sent one of the men to Washington, D. C., for authority recognized by the •Indians. That authority forthcoming, the •survey continued. Indians Praised Ouster. The Indians forming the escort had been assigned to that duty by Red Cloud, successor to Sitting Bull, and were armed with Springfield rifles, evidently captured at Ouster's last stand. None of the Indians would talk about that battle, only saying, "Ouster very brave man." They had nothing to do with the crew making the survey. They made camp a couple of blocks from the whites and contented themselves with being a guard. Narrow Escape from Battle. Once a cloud of dust was noticed in the distance. The whites were, ordered to stop, and the Indians formed a half circle the open side facing the approaching dust. From this soon emerged 20 Indian warriers. The party Indians closed in, and when the -war party was. surrounded a parley took place. It broke up, and the war party came riding straight toward the i whites, but it swerved to one side I and without a word rode off and disappeared. The whites noticed that many fresh scalps hung from their saddles. An Indian guard said that a big battle had taken place in •Canada, and that this was one party of Indians en route home. 4 | Fall Tweed 3ROW1N AND WHITE tweed *-* swagger for fall is good, as hewn by Martha Sleeper, film tar.
