Special Correspondence.
Iroquois, S. D., May 12.I have been
told by some of the people of South
Dakota that there are people in In
diana, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and
other states that have to be practically
forced into talcing a trip to this state
to see what there is here, and that it
is.hard work to make a lot of them be
lieve that this state compares favor
ably with the eastern states.
If any such read this article, I want
them to listen for a moment to what I
have to say. It don't make the slight
est difference to me whether anyone
living on $100 an acre land comes out
here or noti. e., so far as anything I
will make out of it. I am paid for
writing what I see and not selling land.
But-just now the rich black loam soil
I have been traveling thru steadily for
two months is beginning to take on the
green of newly-growing small grains
any lover of the "Ould Sod" would
forsake the emerald isle for this county
just now. I have been in Canova,
Salem, Huron, Volga, Woonsocket, How
ard, Madison and a lot of other little
towns, and have made it a practice to
ascertain the names of hard-up farmers,
and I haven't found any. Can you, Mr.
Fanner of the east, say that there are
nolle in your locality? Everything
points to one of the best crops that
South Dakota has ever known and those
who are wise will see to it that they at
least take a look at some portion of the
state within the next two. months.
The lands in this state, or at least
a good portion of them, are just as
ood corn producers as anything that
ies out of doors. This can be proven

it is not hot air. Farms out here run
usually from a half to a full section,
and this amount of land does not re
quire the investment of capital that
an eighty or a quarter would eaBt
lands sell in the agricultural section
of this state at from $12 to $40 an
acre: every acre of them will produce
equally, with the eastern farm lands
selling "and being bought at from $100
to $150 an acre. The average acre of
farm land will produce a net income of
$5 an acre now, if instead of having
one acre at $150, a "man can own four
or five at $20 to, say, $30, is it hard
to figure out at which place he is going
to win?
I would like to see the young farmer,
the renter and the old farmer of the
eas who i to continue fanning,

over hi prejudice, based on what
know, but thinks he does,
write some land interest in South Da
kota to secure him railroad-rate con
cessions and come here to see for him
self. About nine out of ten who do
come are so surprised that they buy
right away. Those who have lived
here a couple of years couldn't be
driven back east again. The farmer's
bank account is what counts, and they
have them in all parts of South Dakota
in abundance. Do, you know that this
state is loaning money in the east every
year, and that this money is coming
but of the ground? Well, that's the
truth.

Sioux Falls, S. D., May 13.There is
every prospect that knights of the road
will this season dodge the town of
Emery, southwest of Sioux Falls.
This will be due to the fact that the
town authorities have adopted a novel
and effective method of abating the
tramp nuisance. The town marshall will
be provided at the start with 250 meal
tickets.
When tramps invade the town and
visit the residence portion in search of
"handouts" they will be referred to
the marshal. That official, if/ap
proached by the hoboes, wijl require
them to perf om work on the streets be
fore being given a meal ticket.
Those who refuse to work will.not be
able to secure anything to eat in the
town unless they have the money to pay
for it. The authorities are hopeful that
this plan, when knowledge of it reaches
the ears of the professional hoboes, will
cause ihem to give Emery a wide berth.
With hp weapon o.ther than a pocket-'
knife, Charles .Persson, a Sully county i
ranchman, after an exciting chase and
fierce fight at close .quarters, succeeded
in killing, a monster gray wolf, which

this state.
Wl B. Davenport, industrial commis

frost for this time of the year visited
this section, last night. Much damage
was done to the fruit crop and garden

was up was completely destroyed. Very
little corn, however, had been planted,
owing to the cold and wet weather.

Increase in Wealth of Codington County, South
Dakota, From 1896 to IQQS: \-r
llueh has been written concerning taught by the experiences of the years
the average per capita wealth and the
wonderful average per capita annual
production of South Dakota, and no
more striking example can be found
within her borders than that shown by
the county of Codington, the county
seat of which is the thriving city of
Watertown.
When we consider the fact that in
1896 the total deposits in all the banks
in Watertown and Codington county
were but $158,487.83, while in 1905, as
shown by the last published statements,
the deposits were $858,110.08, an in
crease of $699,622.25, or 443 per cent,
an average increase in wealth of 50
per cent per annum, then we are forced
to acknowledge that this part of' the
country has certainly been "going
some."
And when we look into the causes for
this great increase of wealth in such
limited territoryfor Codington county
is, one of the smaller counties, of tne
state, and increase in population has.

Milbank, S. D., May 13.It is cer

some of these South Dakota men. As
a rule they hit the state a few years
ago with a little more than enough to
buy a meal, a bunch of nerve and a
happy smile.
Such a man is L. H. Bentley of this
city. At the present time Mr. Bently
has been in Milbank about fifteen
vears, coming here with little or noth
ing and iXno\y engaged in banking,
farm loans, reaKestate business and the
practice of law and at present is state's
attorney. In the past four years
he has sold over four million dollars'
worth of land in the two Dakotas,
Minnesota and Canada. I quote the
following from his statement:
I have been a heavy purchaser as
well as seller of lands, and from my ex
perience I should say that in buying
real estate one should get" lands which
are not only adapted to wheat raising,
but also diversified farming, so that one
will not be dependent upon any one
thing alone. In other worlds, instead

All city and county payments are cash.
The county of Codington has a bonded

Dear Sir:-After having used your Belt I am pleased
to state-thaj I am cured of my Rheumatism and Nerv
ousness. Last year 1 bought an electric belt from the
Medical Institute in Milwaukee: I used it for over nine
months without any sign of improvement, but your Belt
showed its beneficial influence right after the first ap
plication. I shall recommend your Belt to any sufferer
from Rheumatism or any similar disease. to anyone. Yours truly,

UNIM-
Strong and Powerful
Let any person who is ill, broken down, old and decrepit, full of pains and
aches, gloomy, despondent- and cheerlesspeople who want to be stronger
than they feellet them come and tell me how they feel, and if I say that I can
cure them, they can depend upon it. This is to those who are afflicted with
Nervous Debility, who get up tired in the morning, have Backache, Rheuma-
tism, Stomach, Liver, Bladder and Kidney Trouble, who are constipated or
suffering- from nerve or muscle affliction, or some forms of Paralysis and Loco-
motor Ataxia. I don't want money that I don't earn. I don't need it, and am
not after it. But am after the dollars that are now going wrong in the quest
of health. Look at all these poor wrecks of humanity that are spending all
they earn on drugsdope that is paralyzing their systemthat have spent all
they have earned for years without gaining a pound of strength for the hun-
dreds of dollars wasted.
That is the money I am after, because for every dollar I take I can give a
thousand per cent interest to those who invest it. I have cured so many cases
right here that I can prove my claims to you, but if that proof is not enough
I'll give you the names of people right near youwhere yon are. Is. that fair?
Most of the Belts that I am selling now are to people who have been sent
to me by friends whom I have cured. I think that is the best evidence that my
business is a success from the standpoint of cures, as well as on the dollar side.
I have restored strength and health to thousands of weak people with my

Milwaukee RoadOpens Vast
Oacoma, S. D., May 11.A tremen
dous immigration ana forward move
ment is being felt here. Homesteaders
and land buyers are coming by coach
loads to examine and invest in the
cheap lands on the west side of the
Missouri. The movement is stronger
and more satisfactory than was the
rush to thiB section for the lands of the
Rosebud about a year ago. There is
no lottery thiB time, but the land hun
gry can go out ana make their selec
tions and return to Chamberlain to file
It is estimated that 70,000 acres in
the Chamberlain district will be filed
upon in May. The filings in April were
heavy, but the business for May will
surpass them. Practically all are new
settlers and landlookers are coming by
the Milwaukee road and are hustling
for claims as near as possible to the
extension which this company will build
west of Chamberlain.
More railroad building will be done
in South Dakota this year than for sev
eral years past. The South Dakota
Central is being pushed to the north
ward. The Milwaukee will cross the
Missouri at Chamberlain and will push
into the reservation, towards the
Black Hills. No one doubts that this
means next year a line into the Hills.
Actual work is in progress on the Ar
mour line of the Milwaukee, and whis
pers of activity in Great Northern and
North-Western circles are persistent.
The Milwaukee Railroad company
has made an appropriation of $20,000
for UBe in advertising South Dakota.
This sum is now available and will be
expended during the coming season
in distributing matter which will stim
ulate the settlement of this state.

Pierre, S. D., May 13.Farming in
South Dakota has certainly taken some
big strides this season, this being one
of the earliest and most favorable sea
sons for seeding known in the history
of the state. Thousands of acres were
sown to wheat in March, and while the
good work still goes on, a good many
are now "even this early," planting
corn, and it's a common conclusion that
good corn can be raised anywhere in the
state. In fact, those who have persist
ed in raising corn and hogs along with
small grain, are the ones who have the
big bank accounts today, and they fare
well with the big cattle interests of the
state. We have timber, coal, stone,
horses, cattle, sheep, mules, hogs, poul

til by and by he will be unable to find
a place large enough to run his herds.
Let the good work go on. A few men
that follow diversified farming will pro

homesteads get together and bring
your neighbors with you, and establish
a new community. Start early, come
west and grow up with the country
and if you don't want to take a home
stead, live in Pierre, or buy a farm near
Pierre, where you can have your own
natural gas by tapping the earth and
getting it, which is used all over the
country for heating, lighting and cook
ing.
