HURLEY, S. D.
CAPITAL NOTES .'
Hon. E. H. Withee broke into the
headlines by introducing a resolution
for the appointment of a joint com
mittee to consider the advisibilitv of
building a suitable residence for the
governor.
States Attorney Hanson and C. L.
Jones both of Parker were in the
city last week in attendance at the
meeting of the South Dakota Bar
Association."
Lynn Vaughan of Hurley took ex
amination before the State Board of
Medical examiners, in this city, last
week. He stood highest of any wfto
wrote at that time, which is good
news to his many Hurley friends.
To Mr. Withee belongs the honor
of having fathered the first bill to
pass the House thte session, being
House Bill No. 31.
J. A. Steninger of Parker was at
the Capital Friday.
As the session advances it becomes
more evident that the sentiment in
favor of doing something with the
Richard's Primary Law is gro wing,
and "from hints dropped here and
there it is likely to get fixed so its
father wont know it: f'
The Scandinavian members of
froth houses were guests of honor at
a reception given by the ladies of the
Latheran church at their parsonage
Friday evening. A very pleasant
time is repurted.
House Bill No. 15. known as
Administration Banking Bill, is the
longest bill so far introduced. It has
eighty-one pages and twenty-right
sections. It is said to be a very
comprehensive measure.
Hoase Bills Noa. 50, 51, 53, 54 knd
65 were put through the Housie ih
quick order. The legislation being
necessary for the welfare of the
newly organized counties of Haakon
and Jackson.
Representatives Withee and Wid
lon dined last Sunday with State
Treasurer Ewert and wife.
No freak bills have been introduc
ed so far, but several near freaks
ate promised soon.
Representative Widlon stirred up
considerable excitement by his bill
regarding the letting of public
printing. There was quite a .hustle
among the newspaper men to dis
cover the -'Joker."
Mr. Peters of Spearfish is at the
Capital asking for a legislative in
vestigation of the Normal at that
place, claiming that he was brutally
assaulted by students of that institu
tion. His appearance indicates that
he met with trouble of a serious
nature.
Mr. Withee accompanied a legis
lative
ITALY'S EARTHQUAKE
Without engaging in the great
^European war, Italy has been plung
ed into grief and desolation, having
^rw-^^recently been visited by one of the
l^imost disastrous earthquakes. of
•modern times.
Thousands of homes have been
destroyed, and the loss of life is ap
palling—being estimated at 40,000
to 60,000.
The Italian government immedi
ately set about furnishing relief to
the survivors. and on account of the
mild climate not very much suffer
ing ensued, but it will take years to

rebuild the villages and to alleviate fine luncheon, and indulged in a few
the sorrow caused by the loss of1social games before departing for
loved ones. jhome.
The spring campaign promises
great things for the. Allies. Lord
Kitchener says "I do not know when
the war will end. but I know that it,
will begin in May." Considering the
fact that England has put less than
200,000 men in the field up to the
present time—that France has borne
the brunt of the conflict in the west
—that England has 1,500,000 men
now under arms, and ready for
"springs work" that Italy and Rou
mania are ready to line up with the
Allies as soon as spring opens, it
seems that Kitchener m&y be right,
and that Germany and Austria, now
straining to the utmost to repel in
vasion, will have at least 2,500,000
fresh troops. to cope with- in the
spring. Can they successfully do ft?

already visible to Emperor Wilhelm?
"Music Makers" Fail to Show Up
The second number of this sea
son's lecture course, a male quartet,
traveling under the name of "The
Music Makers," and billed to appear
here last Monday night, missed con
nections at Mitchell and failed to
the^freach Hurley.
This was a decided disappoint
ment to the committee in charge
and to the general public. The
house was sold out at 2 o'clock Mon
day afternoon,assuring the manage^
ment of a good margin on the num
ber.
Why this quartet did not reach us
has not been satisfactorily explain
ed—excellent train service from
Mitchell—good roads and good
weather for autoing across. We
hope the lecture course committee
will insist on this number later in
the season.
BASKET BALL
Last Friday, Jan. 15, the basket
ball boys and girls of the High
School autoed over to Lennox. On
arriving at the school house we were
met by the Lennox fojks and well
cared for, the girlsbeing entertained
in private homes. After supper all
returned to the school house to make
ready for the games which were
played in their well equipped gym
nasium in the basement 'j
On account of unavoidable cir
cumstances only four of the girls of
th£ Hurley team were able to go.
However on phoning Mr. Davis of
Lennox to cancel the game, he in
sisted that we find someone to fill
out the team and accordingly two of
ouf lady teachers kindly consented
to do bo. The Lennox team played
well and the game was closely con
tested throughout, ending with a
score of 18-10 in favor of Hurley.
The boys game was fast, and for
the first half quite even, but as
some of our boys were not in good
condition, and the Lennox
were on their home floor they dis
played somewhat superior team
work and the game ended 32-18 in
their favor. Watch us reverse the
score next month in the return game.
After the games, all rivalries were
forgotten and we were treated to a

SCHOOL STATISTICS
Turner County h.^s 4809 children
of school age. Of this number
or 65 8 per cent attend school.
The distribution by age groups are
as follows—From six to nine, total
number 1381. number attending
school 979 fiom ten to fourteen.
1577, attending school 1343 from
fifteen to seventeen, 965, number at
tending school 584 from eighteen to
twenty. 886, attending school 158.
It will be noticed that the children
from the age of ten to fourteen are
practically all in school and from
fourteen upward the percentage of
attendance dwindles rapidly. But a
small percent of our children com
plete the eighth grade and our high
school graduates will not average
fifty per year, and yet we think that
we are doing great things. for our
children along educational Hnfs..
SEND SEEDS IN EARLY
Persons des1ring their field crop
seeds tested for purity and germina
tion should send them to the State
College not later than March 1st
It requires time to make these tests
and they are tested in the order re
ceived. Every spring, many send in
seeds for testing just at seeding
time and ask for an immediate re
port and as it takes from four to
twenty-one days to germinate the'
/ariovs field crop seeds they are dis
appointed. -V'
It is worth while to have purty
and germination tests made to avoic
planting iioxious weeds or deac
seeds. Therefore send in your seec
samples for testing before March 1
See that they are labeled carefully
with your own name and address,
and marked to show what you want
done with tfle words "purity test,'
"germination test" or both and be
sure that they are plainly addressee
to the Agronomy Department, State
College, Brookings. S. D.
HURON COLLEGE
Class work was resumed at Huron
College on Jan. 5th, following the
holidays. Six new students enrollec
the first mornimg. The college is en
joying the most prosperous year in
its history and the future outlook is
exceedingly bright. The recent an
nouncemqnt in eastern newspapers
to the effect that Huron had reeeiyec
a gift of $100,000 from the Rocke
feller Educational Board evidently
had reference to the old gift, as no
new donation has been received

perfectly sound basis. It is planned
to add $200,000 to its endowment
fund and to erect two new buildings

1876, in Middleton township, Turner
County, S. D. Here she grew up
into childhood and woman's estate.
As a child and young woman, she at
tended the Methodist church and
Sunday school, with which she
united.
O^ June 6,1891 she was united in
marriage to G. H. Piper. To this
uniin were born 9 children, all of
whc&n are still living, 6 girls and 3
boyl, the youngest an infant. All
ler life, Mrs. Piper has lived in this
community and in Spring Valley.
Six weeks ago a son was born into
the home. Complications set in,
froth which, our sister was not able
to rally. An operation performed
}y $r. Dale of Sioux City, .did not
ring the desired relief.. All was
donfe for the suffering that human
skill and science could do but to no
avail. On Wednesday morning at
30, the Death Angel came and
said,"It is enough.come up higher,"
and she passed aWay into the "Arms

ful wife, a good mother and
friend. She had one characteristic
which but few possess, making the
best of everything without worry.
The home, the church and the com
munity suffers a great loss. She
will be sadlv missed.
