FRAGRANT BRAIN FIELDS.
Food that Takes One Back to
"The delicious odor that comes when you
pour hot milk or cream over Grape-Nuts,
takes one back to childhood and the wide,
golden harvest fields when the wind blew
in your face the scent of ripened grain, and
made you. oh so hungry!
yOf all the appetizing foods. Grape-Xuta
food is the chief. ■ I was led to change my
diet and take up Grape-Xuts from the fact
that 1. had a very serious, long-standing
case of constipation, which originated
from coffee drinking. Constant headaches,
backaches, and a stomach that felt like
lead was the condition; while the mind was
tilled with misgivings of all sorts, and I
verily believe 1 would have gone insane
if i< had not been for the temporary relief
from various cures for constipation, but
there seems lo be no permanent relief ex
cept iv good food like Grape-Xuts.
"This food is the same to a weak stom
ach as kind words and a gentle touch to
an athiug heart. All my doubt and fear

as 1 found a food that I could digest and
which relieved ray difficulties. Life be-
came brighter and better, my home a sweet

PRISONERS ARE WORRIED
It Is Xot Known Whether Krrr Will
Paterson, N. J., Jan. 15. — McAlister,
Campbell and Death, on trial for the mur
der of Jennie Bosschteter, showed when
they were being brought into court to-day
that they had had a sleepless night fol
lowing the disclosures by witnesses yes
terday. It is not yet definitely known
whether George Kerr will be celled as a
witness for the state.
Cabman Scorthseope, who drove the four
men and the girl into the country where
Jennie met her death, related the story he
has already told to newspaper reporters.
Part of his testimony regarding the con
duct of all four of the men was unspeak
ably vile, so vile that the witness himself,
although obviously not burdened with over
delicacy, hardly knew how to proceed.
Scorthscope testified that McAlister came
to him the Saturday following and told
him to keep still. When they left Dr.
Townsend McAlister had said: "Doctor,
you know what to do," and when McAlis
ter left the carriage the same night after
throwing the body out, McAlister had used
the same words to the witness. Scorthscope
said that all he got for that awful night's
drive was $10 from McAlister.

NO VERDICT GIVEN
Hershfield Jury Disagrees and Is
CASE MAY NEVER BE TRIED AGAIN
Some Damaging Evidence Presented
Against the fix-Banker of
Special to The Journal.
Helena, Mont., Jan. 15. —The jury in the
United States court that has been trying
to reach a verdict In the case against
Aaron Hershfleld, ex-president of the
State National bank of Miles City, in
dicted for misappropriation of funds, mak
ing false reports to the controller of the
currency and false entries, came into
court this morning and informed Judge
Knowles that it could not agree. The
Jury spent twenty-three hours in trying
to arrive at a verdict. Judge Knowles
discharged the jury after being satisfied
that a verdict was an impossibility. It is
not expected Hershfleld will be tried
The case attracted much attention in
Montana, as Hershfield was at one time
one of the leading bankers of the state,
and worth several hundred thousand dol
lars. Reverses came in 1886, and in 1897,
when the Merchants' National bank of
Helena, of which he was a large stock
holder, closed, he became heavily in
volved and was forced from the presidency
of the State National of Miles City, and
subsequently indicted for the alleged mis
appropriation of funds. The trial lasted
all of last week.
Hershfleld, without money and friends,
was the object of more or less sympathy!
and while many believe he was technical
ly guilty, there appears to be general
satisfaction over the verdict.
Among the most damaging pieces of
evidence against Hershfleld was that he
took up his note for $15,000 in the State
National and substituted two straw notes
signed by a couple of men who did not
have a dollar. Also that he borrowed
money from the First National bank of
Minneapolis upon his own notes and
charged the same to the State National
without the authority of the directors of
the latter bank. Teller Forrest of the
Minneapolis bank was one of the lead
ing witnesses against Hershfleld.

LAST OF ANDY LEE
Steere's Letter the Final Episode of
an Unpopular Career.
COMBINATION FALLS TO PIECES
|:, .V~ —————
Lee, Pettlicirew ami i Lien the ' Pop
Triumvirate, Dlnatfree—Leif- , 'i
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D.. - Jan. • 15.— flutter
caused by the reading and printing in the
journal of the letter addressed to the"leg
islature by F. If. Steere, a member of the
■board- of charities and .'corrections, con
cerning the charges of mismanagement
made ;by Governor Lee In "- his farewell
: message, is accepted as the last unpleas
ant episode, in the career*of a chler execu
tive who, however honest and well-mean
ing he may have been, had at least a pe
culiar knack of keeping himself in hot
| water and of antagonizing practically evr
i erybody who was brought into close asso
ciation f with him. Under Mr. Lee,- for
years past, the governor's office was either
making a target of someone or was being
made t a target of by persons who felt
themselves aggrieved at . something Mr.
Lee.had either said or done. It is difficult
to be unprejudiced where Mr. Lee is con
cerned, but 1t is stating it mildly to say
that everybody is relieved that he has
stepped down and out. . Everybody, re
gardless of politics, looks. to Governor
Herreid to redeem the office and to re
store to it that dignity with which it is
naturally asociated in the public mind.
Mr. Lee has been in a specially vindictive
frame of mind since the election and seems
to : have taken the result as a j personal
affront. 1 The populists charge against' Mr.
Steere, however, that while he condemns
the present management of the institu
tions in : his letter, he commends them in
his report to the governor, although it is .
understood that Mr. Steere claims the re-:
port was garbled after he had signed it. s
3 Speaking of Mr. Lee's frame of mind
since the election recalls the fact that the
Lee-Pettigrew-Lein combination has gone
to pieces and each is pulling for himself
and trying to save himself from the oth
ers. The trouble has broken out in the
Sioux Falls Press office and to protect
himself and his interests Mr. Petttgrew
has filed a judgment of several thousand
dollars against the institution.
Upon roll call in the senate upon the
motion to spread the Steere letter on the
records and to print a number of extra
copies for circulation, Senator Gregory
of Spink county and Senator Sweet of
Hutchlnson voted with the six fusionlsts.
Other than this the question was decided
by a strict party vote. The fusion mem
bers made the mistake of going to Messrs.
Gregory and Sweet in a body and extend
ing their congratulations and thanks. This
action made the matter conspicuous and
the gentlemen did not seem to relish the
Representative Vick's bill for the es
tablishment of the office of commissioner
of immigration provides for a commis
sioner with a salary of $1,500 a year and
a deputy with a salary of $1,200 a year.
They are required to compile statistics and
publish pamphlets containing Information
with respect to the resources of the state
and to spend not less than three months
of each year in other states distributing
literature and lecturing on the advan
tages offered by South Dakota to various
kinds of settlers.
The bills to give the governor power to
remove for cause, after due hearing, con
stitutional officers who are not subject to
impeachment, are identical with the bill
of two years ago that was advocated by
Governor Lee, and is practically the same
as the measure favored six years ago by
Governor Sheldon. There seems to be a
general sentiment that the measure is
just and proper, and it will receive the
approval of both houses unless sentiment
undergoes a change.
Two years ago the small amount of
drinking in which members and others in
dulged was a matter of general and fa
vorable comment. This session abstemi
ousness in this direction is even more
marked. The bar in the Locke hotel Is
scarcely paying the wages of the gentle
manly attendants, to say nothing of the
first cost of the material in which they
deal. It is also true that the number of
out-and-out prohibitionists among the
members is small. By way of contrast,
and without even throwing out the hint
that prohibition and drinking go hand
in hand, it may be mentioned that the
legislature which enacted the stringent
prohibition law of 1890 consumed more
liquor in a day than the present members'
at the rate at which they are going will
consume in a month. A member of that
legislature said, when jollied about drink
ing so much and voting for prohibition,
"We will take' good care that our con
stituents will not have a chance to get as
full as we are." The men of that time,
however, while they were hard drinkers,
were carrying out a provision of the con
stitution which had been adopted at the
previous election. There is no doubt that
liquor drinking has become unfashionable
in business circles.
Lieutenant Governor Snow makes an ex
cellent presiding officer and dispatches
the business of the senate with vigor and
promptness. In the hoiwse Speaker Somers
gives equally good satisfaction and pleases
everybody by his impartiality. Both ends
of the legislature are to be congratulated
upon their officers.
A new educational bill will be presented
within a few days that will amount to a
complete codification of the school law.
At present it is difficult to distinguish be
tween a school district and a school town
ship; the new bill will remove this dis
crepancy and make matters plain. The
present law is also contradictory and
vague in many other respects, so much so
that during the pasi two years the attor
ney general has been compelled to render
over fifty decisions to the state superin
tendent of education upon poinis on which
that official was in doubt. Under the new
bill the salaries of county superintendents
will be based upon the number of schools
and population. It also enlarges the pow
ers and duties of the superintendents, as
might be imagined from the fact that it
was drawn under direction of the superin
tendent's association. It requires that all
teachers in city schools shall have county
A bill to place express, telegraph and
telephone companies under the supervision
of the railroad commissioners will be in
troduced in a few days.
H. N. Cooper of Canton is here pressing
his candidacy for public examiner.
There is some talk of making an effort
to increase the number of regents of edu
cation from five to seven, and it is be
lieved that if the members could be
brought to understand the facts in the
case they would give it hearty support.
As matters stand the board has appor
tioned the institutions among themselves
individually, one regent taking one insti
tution, another regent taking another,
and so on, until each institution is abso
lutely under the management of one man
instead of having the benefit of the wis
dom of the entire board. The regents are
also jealous of their prerogatives and in
sist that they shall be let alone, each with
his particular college or university, to do
pretty much as he pleases. The result
may be imagined. At Brookings college
it has worked so that the bondsmen of
the secretary, A. X. Allen, have been
forced to put up some $800 or $1,000 to
make good his accounts, taking a mort
gage on his property to insure them
against loss. Mr. Allen is still holding
the position, and no doubt will pay up in
time. With proper supervision by the
whole board such a shortage would be im
possible. If nothing else, by increasing
the membership of the board to feven,
the state would gain by the mere fact
that then there would not be enough in
stitutions to go around and supervision
would of necessity be made by more than

legislature lias been pitiably inadequate
to the pressure for place, although this
is probably not greater than usual, but
is more noticeable because the very large
republican membership brings new appli
cants from new counties. For this reason
there has been a great deal of dissatisfac

gone home swearing mad. The legisla

not yielding to the pressure. They created

addition to the food law, these officials

THE QUESTION OF INDEMNITIES
Ku»*ia'« Shrewd Move In Accepting
Manchuria in Lien of
New York, Jan. 15.—A special to the
Journal of Commerce from Washington
The instructions to Minister Conger at
Peking in regard to the attitude of the
United States in the settlement of the
commercial privileges to be accorded to
foreigners in China have not yet been
perfected in detail. Mr. Conger has been
advised of the desire of this country to
secure the broadest possible privileges
and to have them equal among all na
tions, but effort has thus far been di
rected chiefly to the latter point and to
restraining the hunger of some ; of the
powers for excessive indemnities, rather
than to definitions of what the new priv
ileges shall be. The United States will
probably strengthen Minister Conger by
one or more experts : in commercial and
financial, policies before the negotiations
The -indemnities and the treaties will
be more or less involved in each other.
The Russian government has executed a
clever flank movement, if the report is
true that Russia will offer ,to accept ter
ritorial compensation in Manchuria in lieu
of money. It is the acceptance of com
mercial, concessions in", lieu of money
which has been urged from the beginning
by the United States. The proposition
that . China shall surrender territory is of
a different character, but will enable
Russia to pose in. the attitude of generous
forbearance and friendship to this coun
.try by her apparent compliance with the
suggestion that she waive . the # demand
for excessive payments In. money.
Whether :~\ there Sis to be " direct - inter
. vention : by the civilized governments by
way of international control , of Chinese
finance; it is felt that their citizens and
subjects 1 should - have ; the largest liberty
in traversing the Chinese empire for trade
purposes, setting up establishments with
out molestation - and enjoying trade : be
tween different provinces without being
subjected Ito vexatious - and repeated local
taxes. > -

Washington. Jan. 15.—Responses received by
the state department to its appeal to the
powers to make extra efforts to bring the

clusion are all favorable. Not one of the

bring about a settlement without delay.
