How About Interest?
Yankton, S. D., July 11.—A farmer named William Gemill has received a check for $75 from the United States government in settlement of a claim which he has been endeavoring to collect for twenty years. The check was for supplies furnished to Custer’s command as it passed through Yankton going into the Little Big Horn County in 1876.
