Dick Baisch went to Irene Sunday, orders having been received from J. H. Queal & Go's headquarters transfer ring him to the yard at that place. Irene folks will find Mr. Baisch to. bo a good citizen in every sense. Ttie youner people of Hurley are in vited to attend an ice cream sociable to be held by the Parker Epworth League at Win. Eggleston's next Fri day night. Parker orchestra will fur nish music. 1 The farmers of South Dakota will soon have a large amount of cash with which to purchase necessities and lux uries for themselves and for their fam ilies. and it is absolutely necessary that lbs local merchants should be awake to their interests if the.v expect to get that portion of this wealth to which they are entitled. Even now there will be found in nearly farm house a catalogue from some cit mer chant, quoting prices on all lines of goods. These city merchants are cute, they give a very low price on some ar ticles of which the farmer farmer buys but lightly and take their chances on making their profits on goods which the farmer will buy "just to make a decent sized order." The chances are that this same bill of goods could be purchased nearly as cheap right at home—but the farmer don't know it. Now, why doesn't he know it? Well, the principal reason is because the merchants have not taken the trouble to inform him, theyj thinking that as they have been in business for a num ber of years every farmer knows that they keep groceries, dry goods, etc., and they consider that is all that is necessary. Right here is where the merchant fools himself he should at tract the attention of the farmer's family by advertising specific goods and quoting prices on the same, thus showing to the would-be purchaser that it is not necessary to send away from home to purchase what they want. This kind of advertising, with frequent changes, will do much toward downing the catalogue houses. Merchants of Hurley, will you try it? LOCAL MENTION. You can pay your taxes at the Bank of Hurley. Heavy work team for sale cheap, oi' will trade for cattle. J. T. Hogan, Sunday night's shower was of great benefit to the corn and potato crops. J. H.

A few of the me mbers of the Ep" worth League gave Mrs. F. Butts a surprise party last Friday evening. Refreshments were served and a pleas ant time indulged in by those present. Lightning struck the barn on the Jus. P. Withee place east of Hurley Sunday evening. No great damage was dope, but Mr. Thurber, who is living on the farm, says there was a smell of brimstone in the building for some time. John Mansfield has his building in line on the north side of Center Ave nue, just east of the Turner County bank, and after putting a new front on the same and making internal improve ments will occupy it with his stock of merchandise. A party who is in business at Dayis was in Hurley last week trying to ne gotiate for a Center Avenue lot on which to move his building. We un derstand there is only $25 between him and the owner of the lot he wants on on the price of the same. "I can only be a sister to you," she said. "Well, if you will be a sister, may I have a good night kiss?" She shyly assented. Then he folded her in his arms, and gently placing her head against his breast, kissed her. she softly said, "this is all so new to me. so different, from what I thought that if you will give me a little time to think it over, I—I—may—." And it was so quiet on the north side that you could have heard the watches tick in the jeweler's safe. As the harvest time is now here, we hope those who are behind on their subscription to the Herald will re member the editor when they bring in their first load of grain. We haye carried many of you for a number of years without personally urging pay ment, but think this fall should see every account on our subscription books balanced. The editor has man aged to live and keep his office expenses paid without inconveniencing you, and now thinks he is entitled to his money that he may be able to square himself with the world. Do not delay. During the shower Sunday evening lightning played pretty lively about the house on the Biddick farm south of town, occupied by Jas. Rundell. Mrs. Rundell has a clothes-line running from a tree, about 50 feet tall and lo cated about 50 feet west of the house, to the southwest and northwest corners of the house, and the lightn'ng struck the line leading to the northwest cor ner, splintering the studding and tear ing off siding, sheatlng and plastering, but fortunately doiug no damage in side. Mr. Rundell was lying so that he was looking out of the west window when the flash came, and he said it looked as though someone bad poured out a barrel of flames. A few small, pieces of bark trw, were knocked off the Mr. Colton spoke iri M. E. church last night. 1 Eggs taken in exxchange for meat at Hurley Meat Market. E. J.

Lucas has engaged in the hotel business at Chamberlain, and is running the Wright house, which he has purchased. Mrs. H. L.

We notice that some of the sports men are in the habit of driving out in the country, taking guns and dogs with them. Must be that "owls" are plentiful now. Jos. Frick is doing a little talking to the readers of the Herald this week, and those in need of goods in his line will find it greatly to their advantage to call and see him. v* A( The Hurley Zuloos and Centerville Overalls played on the Zuloo's grounds yesterday,'the score being 35 to 11 in favor of Hurley. The Centervillp boys brought their umpire with thetfl. W. E. Tipton of Armour was apaller at the Herald office last Thursday.

Simpson, formerly of Hur ley, Who has been residing Brook ings for the past two years, ha^ moved to Oregon, being oblige^ to make the change on account of his wife's health. That she may be benefitted by the change is the earnest wish of all. If the state fair wants a drawing card the officers should secure the Zuloo base ball club of Hurley. The kids are ready to play anything in the state of their age and weight for $50 a side, and if the fair managers will hang up another $50 the crowd will see some thing new in the line of ball playing, the ages of the players rangiug from 10 to 14 years. They can play ball and play it hot. The official train from South Dakota to the National encampment of the G. A. R. at Buffalo, N. y., will pass thro' Hurley Saturday afternoon, Auugust 21, the special cars being attached to the regular train. The train will ar rive in Chicago Sunday morning at 9:30, and will leave that city 8:30 in the evening, giving thq tourists a day in the Windy City. Monday morning the passengers will be landed at Buffalo. Among those who have gone to the Klondyke mining camp is Jas. E. Booge of Sioux City, who is now 68 years old. Mr. Booge went to California in '49 and made a fortune in the gold field of that state. He afterward located in Sioux City and was one of its leading citizens for many years, but during the boom he lost nearly a million dollars and then went to St. Paul and took a posi tion in South St. Paul stock yards. He will attempt to gather another harvest of gold, and surely he deserves success. In a conversation with Mr. Rufus Hannum, who has ridden over consid erable of Turner county during his visit here, he expressed himself as highly pleased with .the country, and regretted that he had not come here many years ago, when he was able to to till the soil, for ho believed that no portion of Uncle Sam's domain had a brighter future than this state. Mr. Hannum has resided in Wisconsin nearly sixty years, most of the time as a farmer, and he says that 25 per cent less labor is required to accomplish ihe same results here, as compared with Wisconsin. Here is a good one on the druggists. A mah went to a drugstore to get some 011 cake for his horse, and before buy ing asked the price. The clerk told five cents an ounce. To the price he demurred, when the clerk sang out to the proprietor, who was in the other end of the store, asking how they sold ground oil cake. "Five cents an ounce" said the boss, and then added "how much do you want?" t"I wanted about ten pounds" said the customer "but I guess I'll not take any at that price." "Oh, well," said the proprietor, "if you want ten pounds you can have it for three cents a pound, but when we sell.it .by the ounce we charge fiv& cents ftU Ouhoe.*' s§i§ I remember— The Hurley Woodmen are planning for a good time next Wednesday even: ing, the 18th inst. There are about twenty members to be adopted and in structed in the mysterious work of wood chopping. Visitors will be pres? from the Parker, Lennox, Davis, Vi borg. and other camps, and a merry time may be looked for. The Crime of'97. 'V The New York Sun prods the calam ityites with these practical reflections: "What is to become of the popocrats and the populists without their old friend, the mortgage? Wheat up high, silver down low, and the mortgages melting away. This is a pretty condi tion of things for popocrats and popu lists. W^ere are their platforms now? Where iq tfte wind of their sails? Is it the hand of the money power that has throttled so maqy eloquent windpipes? Who puts up wheat, puts down silver, pays off the mortgages? Some form of the money power, and for the obvious purpose of discrediting the popocrats and populists. It seems natural to suspect that trusts are the guilty par ties. Trusts are liable to be guilty of everything, and are known to be in genious. Is it not time to investigate their responsibility for prosperity, that crime of 1897? 'h,] 'Wt There Is Nothing So Good. There is nothing just as good as Dr. King's New Discovery for Consump tion, Coughs and Colds, so demand it and do not permit the dealer to sell you some substitute. He will not claim there is anything better, but in order to make more profit he may claim something else to be just as good. You want Dr. lying's New Discovery be cause you know it to be safe and relia ble, and gauranteed to do good or mon ey refunded. For Coughs, Colds, Con sumption and for all affectations of Throat, Chest and J^ungs, there is noth ing so good as is Dr. King's New Dis covery. Trial bottle free at Pioneer Drug btore.

The day had been cool and the horses thought they were in need of more exercise so they took a trip out of the alley and up the street at a pace which astonished spec tators. In crossing the gutter near J. H. Farnsworth's residence the wagon reach broke, the body of the wagon went into the air several f,eet and then came to the ground wit^ a thud that smashed a case of eggs, and jugs con taining vinegar and oil. The horses then ran east to Mr. Ferguson's barn where they came in contact with a building and stopped. A good second-hand gasoline range for sale cheap. Enquire at Herald office. Dakota Field and Farm: Millet should be cut for hay for horses just as soon as it begins to head under no circumstances should it be allowed to stand until the heads and seeds haye matured. It is then much more woody and indigestible, and the seeds being wholly indigestible may cause serious trouble and even death. In making millet hay allow it to lie in swath one day, then rake and cock up in fair sized piles and allow it to sweat for three or four days, when it should be again opened to the air on a pleasant day before be I tig stacked.
