L. A. Hayford has purchased
and torn down the old blacksmith
shop which has stood for so many
years on the lot next to Rutan's
repair shop on south Maple street.
This is one of the most historic
buildings in Watertown having
stood on that site ever since the
town wqs first platted. Mr. Hay
ford will work the old dimension
lumber of the building into a neat
new cottage in the south part )f
the city.
This is like all other cities of
its size. It is' not without the
croaker or the ki«ker. His pres
ence seems indispiensibie to keep
up the contrast between the enter
prising citizen whose influence sis
felt and seen in the march of pro
gress and improvement and the
man who finds his greatest delight
in throwing a wet blanket on every
enterprise that tends- toward im
proving the town.
Young man, yon had better go
to school while you now have an
opportunity.and thus secure an ed
ucation that will enable you to
command more than common
wages when you grow up to
manhood. It is the fellow who
plays "hookey" in their boyhood
who will growl the most about
hard times and work for ft dollar
a day. Go to school and go there
to learn and not for the ^purpose
of acting cute in order to attract
the attention of the "big girls."
Elsewhere in this issue will be
found the political announcement
of J. W. Carroll, of South Shore,
for the republican nomination for

Carroll is a young man who has
spent the major part of his life in
educational work and is eminently
fitted for the position to which
he aspires. He iB at present prin
cipal of the schools at South Shore
and has given satisfaction and the
people of that town arc very en
thusiastic in his support to the
office of county superintendent.
If nominated and elected he will
no doubt fill the office with credit
both to the county and himsnlf..

The contemplated action of the
general land office in postponing
the date for filing on South Da
kota lands from April 1 to May
1 will commend itself to the
good judgment of everyone con
cerned. The winter on the reB
eivations has not been exception
ally cold, but there has been con
siderable snow, which makeB it
difficult for locaters to show pro
spective homesteaders exactly the
sort of land they are going to file
on. By May 1, al! the snow will
be g.one, and the ground will be
in splendid shape, and homestead

A Bridgeport, Conn., man offers
to have his life insured for $3,000,
000 in favor of his home city, the
city to k$ep up the premiums and
collect the insurance, upon his
death,using the proceeds to pay off
the city debt. The chief drawback
to that .plan lies in the possibility
that some other patriotic citizen
of .Bridgeport might yield to the
temptation to take pot a shot at
the much insured man, in order to
enable the city to get out of debt
with a speed- greater than the
mortality statistics would lead
the insurance companies issuing
the policy to believe possible.—

J.S. Ruxstad, one of the success
ful farmers residing near Florence
was a Watertown visitor for sev
eral days last week. Mr. Ruxstad
came down with his wife and
daughter, and was compelled to
remain in the city for several days
on account of Mrs. Ruxstad having
some dental work done. He called
at the Saturday News office in
company with his daughter and
subscribed foir the paper, for a
year.' Mr, Ruxstad said: "My
daughter says she wants to take
the Saturday Mews for a year
and from what she has seen of it
she evidently thinks it is the best
weekly {paper in the county.''
After talking with the editor on
several subjects Mr. Ruxstad said:
"Do you know that my neighbor^
and jpwelf have been trying eyer
sinee the railroad came thru that
part of the county to get tele
phones into our homes but so fur

"Sfisi farmers living withift
mile and a half of -the main
telephone would like very much to
get connected up but the Dakota
Central Teleohone Company has
dogded the issue at every jump of
the road. One of my neighhorB
even bought, poles and offered to
dig the holes if the company
would connect him up—but we are
just aB far from having phones as
we were before the long distance
company wasknown in this county.
1 don't think it is a square deal
on us fellows who are willing to
pay for the service. If other farm
ers can have phones in their
homes there is no reason why we
should be ignored by,th(p tele
phone company."
The Legend of St Valentine.
Perhaps you have heard the
legend of St. Valentine,but if you
havts not, here it is in as small a
nutshell as such a saint could ho
well condensed: St. Valentine
lived long ago. An emperor ruled
him, and the emperor whose name
was Claudius, became very jeal
ous of St. Valentine or Fr. Valen
tine as he was then called. And
one day Claudius c#t Fr. Valen
tine's head off and banished his
remains, bo that nobody should
know that he had been beheaded.
"Now why did Claudius do
this?" you ask. Well, he did it
because Fr. Valentine became so
great a favorite with young people
that Claudius was not in their
affections at all.
"But how did Valentine make
himself such a favorite?" you
still query. Why how indeed?
How do you suppose? iQow does
any man or woman either for that
matter, become solid with young
people? Why, by helping along
their love affairs, to be sure,
by giving them every opportunity
tobe alone and talk' it over.
Fr, valentine was a born match
maker, and he was always busy
making matches. If he saw two
young people looking at «aeh other
with sheepish eyes, he cast hie
toga over his head and sat (still,
never stirring for five minutes
And so Fr. Valentine got himself
disliked by the Emperor Claudius
and after Claudius had cut hs
head off the young people canon
ized him, and upon the'good old
saint's birthday would exchange
little love tokens, just to keep
his memory green^. The people
who had known St. Valentine when
on earth told their children about
him in after years, and their chil
dren told their children's child:
and so it has come down to
thru many children of children.s
