A number of Indians on the Yankton reservation near Wagner are securing their deeds to lands from the Indian bureau at Washington, and are becoming citizens instead of wards of the government. Many of them are greatly interested in automobiles, and a large number of machines will be sold to the redskins as soon as they are in position to purchase them, after receiving deed to their lands. Many of the Indians on the reservation are progressive farmers.
