Want Divorce Business.
Canton, S. D., March 29.-Canton
citizens have hold a mass meeting and
decided to go into the divorce business.
Hereafter Canton will bo advertised
much aa any commercial centre, and
its specialty will bo divorces.
The people of this pUee have look

profits of other cities in thc Statu
which enjoy a lucrativo divorco busi

that Souix Falls is tho headquarters
of tho divorco iud us try of South Dako

the business of unmaking marriages,
they point to tho arrival of five Eas

I the last half dozen years the number
\ of divorces given by the South Dakota
Courts have averaged about 600 annu

Drunk But Responsible.
According to ? report whioh oomes
from Salina, Kan., jurisprudence has
: established a now ? tao dard for the
measurement of drunkenness One
Fred LoiB, a wealthy farmer,was sued
for $1,000, this being the amouot for
which ho had gone on the bond of a
man charged with grand larceny. The
man fled the country and the bond was
declared forfeited, and Leis was sued
for the amount involved. The defence
of Leis was that ho was drunk at the
time he signed the bond and therefore
not responsible. The ease hinged on
whether or not ho was too drunk .to
know what he waB about. There was
plenty of testimony to show that be was
intoxicated-often so, for that matter.
But there WOB testimony to show that
I when just as drunk he had more than
onoe traded horses, and invariably got
the best of tho deal. So the jury
I found that he was responsible, and
must pay the bill-that a man who
makes a successful horse trade cannot
bo drunk in the eyes of the law. It
ia a legal principle worthy of placo by
tho side of the deoision made in the
memorable investigation of a Pcpu
? list statesman a few years ago. It
was he)d as a result of this ii vestige
l ion that when a man got too drunk to
fish, he was too drunk to hold office.
