In which what might be called cheap

and a number of transfer* are being

quiries as to the lands of that part of
the state, and many residents of the
eastern section are disposing of their
holdings and reinvesting in the west
ern part. Taken altogether the out
look is for a larger increase in actual
settlement of the west half of the
state this year than at. any time for
years. The homestead rush, of course,
took a larger number of people into
that sec tion, but many of them had no

Recent reports sent from tha cen

moved from South Dakota to western
Canada some months ago, had arrived
in South Dakota for the purpose of
striving to purchase back the colony
lands In this state, the inference being
that the colonists had decided to re
turn to South Dakota. Rev. Paul
Stahl of the Tschetter colony, denies
these reports, stating that the colon
ists had purchased a very fine tract of
land in Canada, consisting of several
thousand acres, and had no intention
of returning to South Dakota.
The old misunderstanding regarding
the closing of the season for shooting
ducks is again being discussed. This
question comes up every year as many
hunters get the dates confused. There
is a conflict in dates between the state
and federal laws. Under the state law
the open season is from September 10
to December 20 which under the federal
laws the season does not open until
the 16th of September and closes on
the 31st day of December. While the
state law forbids the shooting of ducks
after December 20, the federal law per
mits shooting of ducks until the 3ist.
but hunters must obey the state law
or take the consequences.

It is expected that the "investigation
by officers of the federal food admin
istration of butter prices in Iowa will
be extended to South L*akota within a
short time. Retail prices of butter in
Sioux Falls and other points in South
Dakota have very materially increased
during the past month, butter now
selling at the hfghest prices ever com
manded in the state. According to thi
manufacturers there was a large de
crease in the production of butter for
storage purposes because of an alleg
ed shortage of help during tbe sunt?
mer months. They also claim that
lack of pasturage among dairymen
made it necessary to use high priced
feed in order to keep the creameries
supplied. It is believed, however, that
with the announcemeat that butter
prices may be investigated by federal
agents that the South Dakota manu
facturers of butter may find a way to
adjust the retail market conditions «o
that the consumer may be able to pur
chase butter at fair price. Owing lo
the present high prices numerous con
sumers are using butter substitutes,
whieli can be purchased at about one
half the price charged for reamery
It would aot be aecessary to go
back very many ya»ra to find the
time when a traveler in the west part
of the slate could make the trip from
the Missouri river to the Black Hills
and not see a hog on the trip. The
rancher had no use for these animals,
as it meant raising corn in his mind,
and no farming was dpsirer. Just a
few days ago there was shipped out
of Pierre two train loads of hogs.
While most of these shipments are of
corn fed hogs, the west river rancher
is learning that corn raising is not
necessary for profitable hog raising.
All he needs is a good alfalfa pasture,
on which the hogs thrive and make a
rapid growth, and while such pasture
does not put the animals in shape for
the market it gives them a good
market price in the corn belt farther
south, and they are picked up at a
good profit to the breeder to be finish
ed for market by the corn raisers. All
of which means that the west country
will increase its hog production every
year under the conditions which they
can most easily handle.

Dignity and Simplicity in Both
Line and Color.
Velvets Much in Evidence for Indoor
Gowns aa Well aa for the
Street Frock.
It is interesting to note that there
are few freak styles in women's wear
ing apparel or absurd creations to'
catch the attention this season, but
rather a determined effort to express
dignity and simplicity, both in line
and color.
The street frocks and suits, says it
fashion writer, are of somber, neutral
tone, and often trimmed with fur in
harmonizing or contrasting tint. Th
fur forms the collar and cuffs, and
when used on the skirt or tunic i
generally put on in patches.
Take, for instance, a smart street
frock of beaver color duvetyn with
its patches of heaver, trimming tlv
panels that hang from the waistline
at the back and front. The cuffs and
high collar .are also of the beaver.
The lower pari of the bodice is inset
with a square of embroidery in brown i
and dull gold thread. Directly at the
front and back underneath the two
fur-trimmed panels is a larger panel
of the material, decorated at the hem
with cord tucking.
Another extremely smart frock is'
of oroun velveteen, trimmed with nu*
tria. model is made with a long
tunic, whi^b is slit at the sides and
trimmed at the v.dges with nutria. The
tunic is set on to a loose-fitting back,
which is drawn in slightly at the waist
line with a sash, which encircles the
waist, crossing at the front and loosely
at the back, the ends being finished
with tassels. The large collar, cuffs
and the draped toque are of nutria.
Velvets are being used more and
more for indoor gQwns, as well as for
the street frock. Many beautiful din
ner gowns are fashioned from velvet
Fur Cuffs and Cellar.
in the softest and most supple of
weaves. These lovely velvets drape,
but do not crush, a rare attribute in
any fabric of this natnrfe.
Often georgette crepe or chiffon is
used in combination with the velvet.
The crepe or chiffon, for instance, may
form the sleeves and part of the bodice
while the velvet is used as a part of
the bodice and skirt. Or the crepe
may form an overtunic, as in the case
of one lovely model, and the underskirt
of velvet.
Stylish Decoration Figures Conspicu
ously on Majority of Winter
Suits and Wraps.
Almost every suit or wrap this win
ter has its bit of fur trimming. In
some instances the fur trimming forms
almost half the garment. A lovely
wrap recently seen was of henna red
velours with an enormous beaver col
lar which when opened formed a cape
effect. A deep band of the beaver
trimmed the coat at the lower part,
extending up one-third of the coat
The accompanying hat was of
beaver decorated with a feather orna
ment of henna red.
Jaunty little Eton coats of fur often
complete a costume of cloth. An ex
ample is a costume of soft, watm wool
velours, which has almost the warmth
of a wrap which may be made com
fortable enough for even average win
ter weather by the addttion of a smart
little coat of fur. Narrow bands of
the for could be used to trim the frock.
Different Aprons.
There ia infinite variety of aprons
they are either of chiffon embroidered
like the front of the corsage, which
continues In two points' around the
waist, or else they are made with a
dchu to match, no aa to connect with
(fee waist
This chic black velvet tam, witl*
white wool embroidery, will appeal to
many to whom this sort of headgear
is becoming.
Most Decided Changes in Newest Cre
ations Are Presented in Collar
One of the modes of the moment i^
the curious assembling of different
fabrics for the fashioning of one gar
ment. Thus a black satin afternoon
frock has been richly trimmed with»
soft white Angora cloth, and this ii*
turn has been thickly beaded with jet.
The frock shows a criss-cross of the
beaded white Angora forming a trim
ming for the narrow skirt, a curious
belt arrangement, not straight around
the waist, but higher at one side and
slanting diagonally across the front of
the skirt. The sleeves are long nnt
tight, ornamented at the waist with
the white fuzzy stuff and the beads,
and the neck is high and finished wit I*
one of the new very high collars made
of the white material, one end being
left leng like a scarf, thrown over one
shoulder and finished with a long jet
The most decided changes in any of
the newest creations are presented in
the collar arrangements. Very high
collars with thrown ends appear on
many frocks. Often they are knotted
on the neck of tbe dres9, a heavy silk
thread of a bright and beautiful color
being used.
This sort of collar appears on a blue
coat dress. The collar is of Belgian
blue, knitted round and round, so that
a sort of small yoke is formed at the
top of the waist, narrowing into a hisrh
collar which ends in a throw at one
side. Touches of the blue threads have
been knitted at intervals across thi*
front of the bodice to brighten it, and
a long sash is knitted at one «ide ol
the skirt.
Lack of Display Promises to Be Espe
cially Noticeable in Latest
Models of Apparel.
Fashion designers seen# at last t*
have been converted to a realization
of the power and beauty of simplicity.
As everyone knows, says a fashiot,
writer, simple language is most con
vincing, and the house built on lines
of simple dignity at once advertiser
Its occupants as people of culture andi
refinement. Why then should the in
dividual woman elect to wear clothe«
that are over ornate either in styl*
line or decorative features? Apparet
is properly meant to emphasize the
good points of the Individual it cov
ers, rather than that the individuality
of womun be submerged and her for mi
serve merely as a foundation for thfc
display of rich garments.
In the development of early spring:
styles the leaning to simple garments
Is especially noticeable. Of course
the very first of the spring garments
are bought by those fortunate ones
who flee to Southern resorts to es
cape the rigors of the Northern o*
Western winter. In suits nnd coat*
sport suggestions usually lead.
Roses, Chrysanthemums and Carna
tion* Are Given Preference Over
Beautiful Camellias.
Camellias are wonderfully beautifui
flowers, but recently fashion has de
manded roses, chrysanthemums and
carnations to the exclusion of camel
lias, and florists bow to fashion for
purely financial reasons.
Camellias are excellent plants foi
the cool greenhouse. Once they were
the aristocrats of flowers in America
occupying the position that orchids dm
now. They are no less beautiful no\r
than then and there is no reason why
amateurs should not grow them.
Blooming, as they do in the late au
tumn, winter and early spring, they
supply bloom at a time when flower*
are scarce.
With a little care camellias can' be
grown in the window garden where
the temperature Is not too high and
the atmosphere not too dry.
Camellias Heed a cool, motet placer
where the temperature dees not gt
over 00 or 55 degrees Fahrenheit, an|
fresh air should be admitted as often
as possible without lowering the teos»
