How ells vs. H. A. Metcalf, as auditor of Roberts county. This is a case which contained practically the same elements as the Wisconsin election case, and will go a long way to discourage bolting con ventions in the state in future. The case goes back to last spring, when the delegates to the Republican state nominating convention were selected. In Roberts county the committee call ed the county convention for the se lection of the county ticket at the same time as the convention for the selection of delegates. In the county there was a bitter fight between the two factions of the Republican party, one known as the "machine" and the other as the "anti machine." The former were support ing the candidacy of J. C. Perkins for secretary of state and were led by Perkins, H. A. Babcock and other lo cal leaders. The others were support ing C. H. Lieh as a candidate for lieu tenant governor, and their leaders were Lien, David Eastman and their followers. When the convention date arrived :he "machine" delegates were the most numerous, and met in the opera house at Sisseton, according to the call of the county central committee, and their opponents made no effort to take part in this convention, but went to another hall and held a convention of their own. Both factions selected del egates to the state convention, and placed in nomination full county tick etc. When they reached the state convention the "machine" delegates were recognized and given seats in the convention as the regular dele gates from the county. Matters rested in that manner until the time approached for getting ready the ballots for the election, when the faction which was recognized by the state convention made a de mand on the county auditor that their county ticket be placed upon the ballot as regular. This he declined to do, an nouncing his intention of placing the other ticket in such place, and the "machine ticket to itself. The matter was then brought l-efore the supreme court, resulting in a decision which not •WiHWWWWWWWWV* a "Do you young Sioux have more than oue wife?" was asked of a Crow Creek Indian. "Yes," he answered, "some of us do." The young Indian would not admit that he had more than one, however. This is the first intimation that the young men were clinging to the customs of their fathers in plural marriages. An old man named Drifting Goose was asked how he liked the change of life from roving and hunting to that of farming and stock raising, being compelled to mingle with white neighbors. He an swered "In old times our children did not graduate from the white man's school and come back to us with knowledge of torpid livers and catarrh, and we were happy. Now that our children read to us the cruel tidings that we have these organs, and that they are beyond the help of the sweet clover leaf brew that the old medicine wom an used to give us to keep disease away, they having become so corrupt ROBERTS COUNTY-CASE IS DECIDED The state auditor's office is prepar ing several tables for the biennial re port, which deal with the financial af fairs of the different counties of the state, showing the financial business for the past year. The total liabilities of all the counties at the end of the past fiscal year were $5,577,589, which is an increase of $21,000 over the lia bilities outstanding at the close of the 1903 fiscal year. Out of this amount $2,706,184 is in the way of school fund loans due the state, leaving the lia bilities outside of this fund a little over two and a half million dollars.

Of the assets returned $1,698,970 is in the way of unpaid taxes. Supreme Court Recognizes the "Babcock." Conven tion as Regular One—Opinion by Judge Haney.

Arthur Don Piatt, ten shillings for furious riding on a motor cycle within the city limits. His case was heard in a police court ii* COUNTIES IE IN FINE CONDITION If: only supports the ticket endorsed by the state convention, but also shuts the other ticket off the ballot entirely unless it is later nominated by peti tion, under some other than a Repub lican heading. In considering the case the court classified the' two tickets as the "Bab cock" and "Houck" tickets, Ii. A. Bab cock being the chairman of the con vention of the Perkins faction and M. A. Houck of the other convention. In the case presented to the court, the Houck faction contended that their reason for not going into the regular convention was that they feared blood shed in case they attempted to enter the hall where the regular convention was held, on account of the bitter feel ing which existed, because there were were numerous contesting delegations, and because the majority of the cen tral committee was against them. In regard to these contentions, the court says: "So it appears that the Houck faction remained away' from the regular meeting place (1) for fear of bloodshed (2) because there were numerous contesting delegations (3) because the central committee favored the opposing faction. The first reason can hardly be taken seriously. It affirmatively appears that none of the Houck delegates entered or at tempted to enter the opera house, and nothing is disclosed which would war rant the inference that they would have been excluded if they had at tempted to do so. Surely it could not be presumed that such gentlemen as are usually chosen as delegates to Re publican conventions in Roberts coun ty necessarily resort to bloodshed •wheti they disagree concerning the selection of delegates to a state con vention." The finding of the court after a lengthy discussion of the situation is: "It follows that the relator is entitled to a pre-emptory writ of mandamus commanding the defendant to print the names of the Babcock candidates in the regular Republican column on all ballots to be used at the general elec tion in Roberts county, and to exclude the names of the Houck candidates therefrom, unless within the period by statute they shall hereafter be nom inated as independent candidates by petition. He is also entitled to re cover his taxable disbursements, but no statutory costs."

While this long list shows no bond ed debt, the counties of Butte, Lincoln and Turner show no floating debt and cash in the treasury. Several of the other counties show a very small float ing debt, which could be wiped out and show a surplus of cash on hand, but only these three were absolutely clear at the close of the fiscal year.

That's One Way to Get It. Although they won't admit it, many people who suffer from sick headaches and other ails get them straight from the coffee they drink and it's easily proved if they're not afraid to leave it to a test as in the case of a lady in Connellsville. "I had been a sufferer from sick headaches for twenty-five years and anyone who has ever had a bad sick headache knows what I suffered. Sometimes three days in the week I would have to remain in bed, at other times I couldn't lie down, *the pain would be so great. My life was a toi^ ture and if I went away from home for a day I always came back more dead than alive. "One day I was telling a woman my troubles and she told me she knew that it was probably coffee caused it. She said she had been cured by stop ping coffee and using Postum Food Coffee and urged me to try this food drirk. "That's how I came to send ovt and get some Postum and from that time I've never been without it for it suits my taste and has entirely cured all of my old troubles. All I did was to leave oft the coffee and tea and drink well-made Postum in its place. This change has done me more good than everything else put together. "Our house was like a drug store, for my husband bought everything he heard of to help me without doing any good, but when I began on the Postum my headaches ceased and the other troubles quickly disappeared. I have a friend who had an experience just like mine and Postum cured her just as It did me, "Postum not only cured the head aches, but my general health has been improved, and I am much stronger than before. I now enjoy delicious Postum more than I ever did coffee." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. "There's a reason," 'and lt' worth finding out.
