5 I frr f- I 4 IT TURNER COUNTY HERALL) BY THh rrrCH PUBLlSiUNG HURLEY. S. D., OCT. 31, 1912 Vice President Sherman is critically ill at his home in New York and his recovery is very doubtful. He has been failing health for some time. .,. Guilty and condemned to death is the verdict of tht trial of po lice office Becker in New York. The disgrace attaching to the city at the failure of one of its protestors is partially mitigated by this prompt verdict of the ••.court. In all the turn oh of the pres ent, election no one sj. iou.nly imagines that there will be any ^outcome in Turner county save the election of the entire repuh- Heart county ticket. The men on that ticket are competent and ,,ivlia'ole and hold, the confidence of all. Whatever la ippcns to th» national bicket Turner county will remain, in, the republican column. Amonif t,l)(! measures submit ted tit the election next Tuesday is th«' Richards primary. Af.'ter a carciful study of the meaiuure the 1-Jerald is of the opinion that it ought to. be deHeated. It is not a primary but a virtuo I re turn to the oUi bos* system. It is favori.d by thdte who tk not favor the primary principle.,' If •we are to have a new primary law itfought to be'a better and not a worse measure than we have now. At the coming election the probabilities arc that Wilson will be elected president. The re publican party is hopelessly di brined adia that seems to meai While the Herald is very friendly to the progressive party idea it has. not taken inuci part in the present campaign, mostly because the republicans f»eeuito have gone back to their olfl high tariff position while the democrats are offering real re Yiaion downward.

Member of the Board of Lectureship of The.First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Boston, Mass. Delivered at Hurley Oct. 24, 1912= A Celt being asked to define a cri tic, responded, "A critic is one who is most down on what he is least up on." No one has ever believed hp has criticized Christian Science from the basis of knowing what Christian Science is. Ignorance of this great subject can no longer be excused on the basis of inability to gain correct information as to what it is, whencp it comes, and what it accomplishes. Christian Science lectures are given so that those who desire may become familiar with it from the standpoint of those who have studied Christian Si.'ience, have applied and proved it. The Bible teaching, "'Ye shall k.aow the truth, and the truth shall rmake you free," is familiar to all. The qpestion arises, What are we to know the truth about, and from w'hat will this knowing free us? We are to know the truth about God, and this knowing will free us from all misapprehension and false edu cational theory relative? to Him, which has held humanity bondage ind misery, wretchedness and woe, for unaccountable generations. Mrs. Eddy started her investiga tions with the realizations that God ^s, and that as cause and effect agree, all things that really are must be like God in quality and character. So, in spite of the testi mony of the physical senses, regard less of the wrong education of the ages, she took her stand against the things temporal though seen, and with the substance of things hoped for but not seen and the result of this standing revealed to her the glory of God and the great Truth relative to Him, which is the fnund- thought. To summarize the teaching of Christian Science relative to reality jflid unreality,—it means simply,— life. Truth and Love are real be cause tbey are like God sin is unreal uecanse sin i§ unlike God. Disease and pain ar-- unreal because disease and pain'are unlike God. And death ut unreal because death is unlike whom to know aright is life ieUrr«al and in whom we live and move and have our being." Chn&uan Scientists hav^ had ard still continue to have a love for Mrs. Eddy that language can never ex press. because she has taken us near to God. She has taught us what He i-. She has made Life. Truth, Love, Mind living realities, and has taught us our natural envirboment and our spiritual birthright In her writinys, Mrs. E^dy haV spirit of thf Word, may instantly comprehend, and the veriest child an SPRING VALLEY tin hir Oinvx/wi/ufeii/ Evelvn Zellar came down from Sioux Palls Friday to stay home over Sunday. ~.u .l »u .. in the semidarkness.

A curious method of capturing wild bears is employed in certain parts of India, the New York Herald remarks. Pour or five sturdy men are armed, two with long spears •rossbarred on the handles, close to the sharp- two edged blade, and two or three with ten foot bamboos, of which the ends are smeared with bird lime. Thus equipped and leading several powerful dogs, the hunters sally forth an hour or so before dawn. They pass along the base of the hills with the fresh morning wind blowing up trqpi the plains below. Should the hunters be lucky it is not long before the fierce dogs wind the bear, and, though dogs of this spe cies hunt silently, their straining on the leash informs their owners that. the game is nigh. The dogs are slipped and disappear lng and lndlcate that they InS wIth The men with the limed poles poke the bear in the ribs and adroitly twist the ends in its long hair, thus holding it fast on each flank. The, spearmen complete the operation by repeated spear thrusts. It is said that a party of experi enced men with good dogs never (ail to secure the bear in this way.

Mothers-in-Law. The editor of a woman's magazine got a letter the other day from a cor respondent who asked, "What mourn ing, if any, should be worn for a mother-in-law This question is freighted with meaning. The longer you look at it the weightier tt be comes. The editor answered that it all depends on the mother-in-law, and immediately we have an answer quit** as weighty as the question. In the funny papers and in fiction no mother in-law was ever taken seriously. In real life we not only take them seri ously but we sometimes take them with-a great deal of affection and re spect. The mother-in-law joke should have had its day, and yet out of a clear sky—well, as I say, the woman wants to know what mourning—IK ANY!—should be worn.—New York Press. is usually heard in the spring of the die within the year. Persons who are superstitious are never very, strict In the interpretation of the predictions and therefore, whenever a person dies in the house or out of it, in the same room where the death watch was heard, or across the Atlantic, 6o that there be some kind of a relationship, or even acquaintance, between the person who hears the omen and the person dying, the event is sure to be connected with the prophetic sounds of the insect. & Safe Deposit Vaults. The safe deposit vault is an Ameri can idea, and was developed at the time of the Civil war. Bank robberies were so frequent at that time that banks refused to take care of their customers' valuables. An instituton referred its clients to the porter as willing to take the risk. For a small sum he took charge of the boxes and safes and made a fortune. From this arose the modern safe deposit, which is now part of every bank. The Eng lish, ever slow and cautious, did not take quickly to the idea of storing their valuables in public vaults, when the idea was introduced in London, .and it was 25 years before safe de posit vaults were widely established.

KING OF ALL THE TUBERS Compared With the Yam, Irish Potato Is Called Insipid, Almost Tasteless: Bulb. The golden yam, says the Washing ton Post, that elaborates the sun and the soil into a sugar which makes sac charine seem sour, was set apart by our first parents as the overlord of all tubers. The history of its Irish rival may be definitely traced to the foster care of Raleigh. It spread into Lan cashire, its path through the low countries may be followed as clearly as the march of the army worm. But the genealogy of the yam is lost in the morning mists of antiquity. It is sup posed to be identical with the man drake for which the Orient peoples dug as for hidden treasure. Beyond all peradventure it was the yam to which the Spanish gave what after ward became the generic name "bata ta," modified into our own collective "potato Its purple flowers were hail ed as the harbingers of nature's rich est largesse, while Humboldt was still doubting Whether nature originally had anything to do with the creation of the Irish potato. It is the succu lent root to which loving allusions are made by the, great dramatist, who would have condemned^ the Mermaid as a tavern if he had been offered the tasteless bulb exploited by Master Raleigh. Apples and Complexion. In the near future girls won't have to sail under false colors. The rouge pot is destined io go to the scrap heap. No longer will it be necessary for Jennie to hide her reddened piece of chamois skin in her hat Listen, girls! Apples are going to save the complexions of all American women! U. Grant Border of Baltimore, address ing the International Shippers' asso ciation, at Chicago, said: "If women knew that eating apples will do more to make their complexions beautiful than all the face remedies in the world, they would eat them morning, n°®n and night. Five years from now, when the countless apple orchards that have come into existence the past few years begin to bear full crops, the apple production in the United States wiU exceed 100,000,000 barrels. .That will give every woman chance to get a gotid, steady, reliable, fast-color complexion tor little cost." big money to OBEYING A DESPOT'S WHIMS Emperor Paul of Russia Was Violent and Eccentric to the Verge of Insanity. Endless are the stories which are told of Emperor Paul's (1797 1S01) violence and eccentricities, writes A. J. C. Hare in "Studies hi Russia." One of his fancies was that everyone he met, wherever he met them, must get out of their carriages and sledges, stand in the mud or on the ice and taiake him a bow. This was, of course, considered the greatest bore possible. One day there was a poor dancing master who was going to give some lessons, and he had nothing but a pair of very thin pumps on. He was dreadfully afraid of encountering the. emperor, for It was the depth of Winter, and the ground was covered with snow and ice and he thought If he did his feet would certainly he frostbitten. As he went along he saw to his horror that the emperor was coming there was no way of turn ing aside he must meet him. He de termined at once that the only way was to pretend not to see the em peror, and to turn the other way. Paul was not to be outwitted. He stopped at once and sent one of his escort to see why the dancing mas ter had not obeyed his orders. The poor man pleaded not having seen the emperor, and implored not to be forced to get out, on account of his thin shoes. The emperor would not hear of it. "Let him walk round and round my sledge," he said, "and see if that will amuse him and since he is too blind to«see me, tell him that I desire for tlfe^ future that he will always, at all times, wear green shades over his eyes." CLUB WHERE SILENCE REIGNS London (Eng.) Institute Should Have a Quieting Effect on Tired1 Nerves. A club in which the" human voice is rarely heard has just been opened in London. As the name, the National Deaf club, would imply, the members are deaf. or are deaf mutes. Conver sation is carried on by oral or manu al signs. Even the solitary waiter chef never offers an audible comment on the weather. There are no bells in the club, the assumption being that if they were to ring nobody would notice them. Un der the door-plate a button resembling an electric bell-push certainly does ex ist, but when pressed there is no re sponsive purring in the club two floors above the level of the street instead a red light is automatically switched on, and the members know that some one is at the door. Similarly when the services of the waiter are in voked, it is. a red light in his sanctum which is the agent. Six years ago the National Deaf club was started in a cafe. So rapid has been its growth that recently larger premises wero acquired, and these were opened by the president, whose deafness has not prevented him from conducting a very successful bus iness. Another remarkable member, who is & deaf mute, is responsible for the railway system of Smyrna, and commands an army of workmen of various nationalities fcy means of signs. The club numbers 120 men and 66 women, ,and included in its appoint ments is a billiard table where disap pointed exclamations are never beard.1 Neatly Caught.
