Mr. Burt Pritchard, of Osceola town ship, suffered the loss of his farm home by fire last Saturday. Mr. Pritchard is a widower with four children, the oldest of whom is 11 years of age. He has a straw-burning stove, and while out at the barn, the building iip 6tairs caught from the stove-pipe, and before he could get to the house the fire was beyond control and he had only time to get the children out of the house. Mr. Pritchard is considered an honest, hardworking man, and the loss is a severe one to him. One of his neighbors, Sandy Crawford, circulated a subscription for him last Monday and collected funds to help him rebuild. We made reference last week to the fact that a suit tor damages for false im prisonment was likely to be inaugurated byC.W.

The affair has been an expensive one to Mr. Jurgens. and it may yet prove equally as expensive for the attorney who resorts to the disreputable methods that were shown up in this case, where the most barefaced perjury had to be re sorted to to make a showing for a case.

Object and W«rk off tt»e Organization, A union meeting of citizens was held at the Congregational church Sunday evening last, and the large building was filled to the doors with an audience that pretty generally indicated its sympathy with the object of the gathering. The meeting was addressed by Iiev. S. F. Huntley, who is secretary ot the fctate league and also of the Non-Partisan Prohibition Union, who presented the necessity for a union of the forces that desire cleaner and better government and enforcement of law, stating that the evil foices were already and always or ganized as is evidenced by the trusts, monopolies, liquor dealers and brewers associations that are always alert to in fluence legislation and demand that their own interests be served at ».he expense of the public. The speaker asserted that recent experience in all of the large cities, where corruption had been run ning rampant, had shown that when an organized effort on the part of the Christian citizens was made they were more than a match for the forces of evil. New Yoik and Jhica^o had both given splendid examples of this fact, and in the fojmer city the enforcement of the Sunday law indicated what could be done when the respectable portion of a community unitedly exerted the power which they held. Mr. Huntley stated the constitution ot the national league as follows: 1. To reveal Jesus Christ as the Sav ior of the siate and nation as well as the individual. 2. To make Christian principles oper ative in public affairs. 3. To unite ttie followers of Christ in consistent, harmonious and aggressive action for these purposes. METHOD:—To federate the Christian forces in every town, city or county with men ot convictions and courage in the lead, ail co-operating on state and na tional lines, and all striving to achieve the following ends viz: 1. To prevent by PEKSONAI. EFFORT, the nomination and election of corrupt candidates and enactment of corrupt laws in city, state and nation. 2 To secure fidelity on the part of officers intrusted with the execution ot the law. 3 To exterminate the saloons as the greatest enemy of Christ and humanity. To oppose by all honorable means the repeal of the 24th articie of our state constitution. 4 To preserve the Sabbath. 5 To purify and elevate the elective franchise. 0. To promote the study of social wrongs and the application ot the rem edies. 7 In general, to seek the reign of whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. After the speaker had concluded liis address he requested those who were in sympathy with and were willing to or ganize a league to rise, and their names were signed to the constitution and a meeting called for organization the fol lowing night. On Monday evening additional name8 were added to the league roll, and Rev. O. Williams, Rev. J. (J. a(ld ,. Haigh, Norton Randall, Dr. C. E. Daniels and the presi dent of the W. C. T. U. were appoiuted a nominating committee to present a list of officers, and the committee reported the following, who were inanimously elected: President—G. A. Wood Vice Presidents—M. S. Keliff, Nor ton Randall, Mrs. L. P. Abbott, Corresponding Secretary—Mra. G. Barney. Recording Secretary—W. W.-Downie Treasurer—J. W. Burgan. After adoption of the constitution and essesi the ]c!lgue ailjourne cl to meet Tuesday evening, March 24th. and the meeting vviil be held at the court house on that date. The character and object of the Chris tian Citizenship League in very fully aud clearly eet forth in the following docu ment published by the national society: What it is. It is the application of the principles of Jesus Ghrist to public affairs. nation. It is a recognition ot the tact that all needed power for the correction of public evils lies in the bands o! Christian peo )ple. It is a crystalizing of Christian senti ment into united activity agaitnt the forces of evil. It is greater than the temperance work greater than all the movements against crime, vice and corruption, because it Includes them all, and lajs foundations of righteousness upon which all moral teforms must rest. What it is not. It is not an attempt to bring the church into pulitics, or to combine church and state. It is not tn attempt to form any new political party, or to help or hinder any existing party. it is not It is the people of God standing unit edly against public evils. It is the "light"—the "salt"- practi cally applied, for expelling the darkness and thai a copy of them be sent to the and"corruption from the politics cf this family of deceased. exclusive, but on the con trary, welcomes the co-operation of all, of whatever nationality, sex, or creed, who desire to stand for things which are right in the Bight of God. It is not so much a new organization as a federation, a tying together of exist ing forces, tor the purpose of making the wid of God to be done on earth. Ii is not simply a movement tor clean streets, honest oflkiais, and well-enforced laws. It is all that, but vastly more. Christian citizenship maintains the supreme right ot Jesus Christ to rule municipal and national as well as private lite. The city, the state, the nation, should be governed by the principals laid down by Him principles of right eousness, ot justice, of unselfishness. Upon ihe application ot these principles depends the final solution of every pres ent day problem. Its plan is to educate concerning pub lic evils, and to agitate for their correc tion by the co-operation of all the forces which make for righteousness, on the common basis of supreme loyalty to Christ. It believes our government to be ap pointed ot God, and therefore too sacred to be left in the hands of corrupt nieu, or to be made a matter oi convenience in tend ot a matter of duty by Christian men. It believes that the dangers which threaten our country arise less from the strength or activity ot bad men, then from the apathy, ignorance or cowardice of good men. Christian citizenship has a special message to Christian men and calls upon 'hem to put their ioyality to Jesus Christ into their politics, to serve liim at the caucus and primaries, and vote as be would have them vote. It points every man, whether profess ing Christian or not, to Jesus Christ as the source and embodiment of wisdom, whose guidance alone is safe, in public or private matters, to follow. Neither the Church nor the Young People's societies can, in their organized capacities, take political action but every member of every church aud society should be so well informed con cerning public questions as to enable him, intelligently and persistently, to oppose corrupt political rule. In these days, ignorance is a disgrace and apathy is treason. Clark in tbc Toil. As stated in last week's HERALD-AD VANCE, G. M. Clark has been arrested in Mexico, and as soon as the necessary red tape proceedings for extradition can be gone through with will be brought hack to Milbank tor trial. Thi3 will probably take a couple of weeks to accomplish. Some of our Iriends doubt ed the correctness of our information last week, but when you see it in the IIKKAM-AI)VANCE its about as the Dutchman gave his son to understand when he said: "Vhen 1 told you some dings, dot vas". At a regular meeting of the Board of Education of the city of Milbank, South Dakota, held February 8, 18UG, the fol lowing preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It has pleased the Giver of every good and perfect gift to remove from our midst our neighbor and friend Frank W.

PHILIP POUT. Revillo, 8. D., March 2, 1S'J6. Drills. Although there are those who still claim that the Seeder is just as good as the Shoe Drill, the number is less each vear. It has been fairly deinunstrated that the Shoe Drill is the best machine for sow ing grain in the Northwest its general use verities ttjis statement. A better yield with less seed can be se cured by the use ol the Drill. The popularity of the Shoe Dril's in the Dakotas, is due to the introduction ot such machines as the DOWAOIAC, VAN HKI'NT fc WIT.KINS. «nd In recognition ol their superiority, three fourths of the farmers in tliis part of the country use one ot the above Drills. Should there be any uncertainty as to the best Drill to buv, just ank your neighbor. These Drills are the best because They sow any desired depth uniformly and eveulv. They will not clog with stubble or other trash. They work with less horse power than other seeding machines. Tliey work equally well in all kinds ©f ground, wet or dry.
