Mrs. Frank Elkins Gone to Her Reward Mrs. Frank JSlkins, wife of Sheriff Prank Elkins passed awajr at the sheriff's residence in the oourt house, last Sunday morning. Her health has been failing for several months and her death was expetite'd any day. Several years ago she 'underwent an operation at St Mary's hospital at Rochester for caiaoer of the breast and returned borne Seeling that she was permanently cured and enjoyed fairly good health 'until about a year ago when the dreaded disease agaia made its appearance. The funeral services were held at the Scandinavian Lutheran Church Tuesday afternoon at 2 .o'clock. At the close of the solemn services all were permitted to look for the last time upon the face of the departed then the sad cortege moved on to the silent city of Mount Hope. Under the snow they laid her. Nothing on eartu is changed only a loving wife and mother is gone. ,%% ^j\i'.i-?f:'r K'i .J»-. ..:-,-:.x Obituary. •Carrie Opdale was born in Chicago Sept. 11, 1864. About tweifty-elght tars ago she came to Hamlin coonty where she formed the acquaintance of Mr. Elkins, to whom she was mar ried July S, 3888. To their union ten children were born, six boys and four, girls. Three boys are dead. Besides her husband and children Bhe leaves a brother, Theodore Op dale of Madison, .Minn. None but those who have sat in the shadow of a great bereavement can justly weigh such a sorrow as this. Those who have gone down into the valley of suffering and stood for months by the side of a loved one, as hope after hope dropped away as the petals fall from a fading flower, know that such anguish cannot find solace in the tenderest words. She who has gone forth could not be sup ported on her solitary path by any earthly friend. The husband with-a devotion few men are capable of, could not detain her by the clasp of earthly love but after the last word had been spoken, the iaat sign of re cognition was gone, a look of peace settled on her face which proclaimed victory, and he knew she was resting on a mighty arm. The Degree of Honor lodge of which she was a devout member attended the services in a body. Also the Eag les lodge attended in a body and con tribpted beautiful floral offerings. Judge Charles X. Seward adjourned court at noon Tuesday in order that the Codington county bar might at tend the funeral in a body. LOCAL MARKETS. Following are the local markets corrected up to Thursday noon: Grain.

These stones are valued at $60 each and each one a genuine sparkler of the most brilliant lustre. They were purchased of E. H. Prey and may be seen on display at his store within the next few days. After having read all about the valuable prize list being offered by The Satur day News in exchange for ithe efforts of its many friends and readers thru out this territory. In furthering its interest by increasing the already large and creditable circulation, it is only natural to form a desire for one of these rich rewards and the best and the surest way to obtain the de sired object is to read the following and ascertain the rules and regula tions and the ways and means Of se curing votes. Three Ways of Securing Votes. First, by clipping the coupon which will be published in this paper and having all those whom you know are VOL. 10 NO 22. WATEKTOWN, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1911. Possibilities of Landing an Automobile or One of the Diamond? Brings in Many Additions to Contestant* READ THE RULES AND GET IN EARLY Remember "He Who Hestates is Lost." Enter Your Name or That of a Friend." Ob 'October the 26th, The Saturday News announced a Circulation' Club Campaign to be known as the "6,00# Club," the first prize to be a 1912 Mod el Ford automobile to be given to •the candidate getting the highest anrriber of votes in the entire cam paign, and to the candidates getting the second and ^hird highest number of votes 10 per cent of all the money collected by them. Realizing that ten per cent was not compensation -enough for the work that will be 'done by the candidates, the Saturday News has decided to make the following changes, for the benefit of all concern ed: taking the Saturday News to jut out in the matter of vote getting. and save these vote coupons fir you. FiP in your name and district number, bring or send them to the circulation campaign department, and the same will be credited to the candidate whose name is written thereon. A quicker and a better way of get ting votes is by securing paid in ad vance subscriptions for the Saturday News. The number of votes allowed :on different, termed subscriptions is ^published elsewhere In this issue. Re ceipt books with necessary lvianks for use in securing subscriptions may be obtained by applying to the manager of the circulation c&ktpaign depart ment. There is a third manner or se curing votes which la as follows Ev •er* subscriber.who is at present tak ing the Saturday News may cast a •credit slip good for 100 votes for any one candidate the subscriber chooses. A printed form will be given- the can didates for. the subscriber to sign, which, when presented to the Cam paign'department, will entitle.the can didate to 100 votes. No payment •wh.itever Is Required for tbis third wey ,9(, securing votes. Only one tif those 100„vote. credit slips will be ac cepted from any one subscriber. the First Thlnfl to Do. In order to enter as a candidate id' this prize competition all that is neces sary is to fill out the nomination cou pon that appears in this issue, send or bring to the circulation campaign department and start to work in ear esr. Receipt books will be furnished with which to secure subscription^, and your name will appear along with the others who have entered In this competition. This list will appear ev ery- week with the vote standing voteB of each candidate. On January the 26th, the valuable prizes will be awarded to th? successful candidates having the highest number of votes, according to the division of districts. Candidates in securing and -subscriptions are not confined to any one section but may secure them anywhere they choose. Best to Enter Your Name Early. It is much better to start early in thio pleasant game of vote getting, do not wait until tomorrow, as by that time someone may have been to see the particular party whom you intend ed seeing, and either secured the sub scription or promise which is ju3t as good and will come in later. A fev voe secured early In the race may be just the number required In the final count to place you a successful win ner over your competitor. Ambi tion and energy are the only require ments necessary to make vote gefc^tin^. an easy matter, and with a, little per serverance there is no Teason why you cannot be declared & winner when the prizes are awarded. The great est \of care has been taken by the Saturday News management to secure prizes of the highest value—prizes well worth the time and effort of the best and most Industrious persons of this community. These extra good values are to be given strictly as a reward on the merits of the ambition and energy expended by the many participants. At the very outset The Saturday News assures everyone a square deal, according all the same fair and equal chance this is the Saturday News' way. Remember delay Is dangerous, so act today. Cut It Out. The vote coupon which appears In this issue of the paper will count tor 100 votes 'when properly signed, brot or sent to the Campaign Department before^the date of expiration marked thereon. Just a little bit more added to what you got, makes Just a little bit more. This Is a very true saying and in case of the candidates who will keep a sharp lookout for the vote coupon which will appear in each Is sue of the paper It will be amply prov en by the steady Increase of their score. Today's vote coupon presents an opportunity to gain a good start A few days' work is all that is need eci to secure one of the rich rewards. The time is short between now and the close of the campaign, so take ad-: vantage of every opportunity to secure votes and subscriptions in order that 8 Jw DistnetNo.- you may be successful. Start in in earnest by securing as many of the 100 vote coupons as possible. These, along with a subscription or two will put you in the lead of your district. See if you can secure more of these couponB than any of your rivals. A careful study of the districts will re veal that theire are splendid chances for anyone with a little energy and ambition to enter the campaign and easily win a prize. Look over the list and remember no matter in which district you live, your chance is just as good as anyone else in this cam paign. You can enter today and gain the Ifead in your district if you will only make a start and use some effort. Send In your name, get a subscription or two from your friends and acquain tances at once and thus show them that you are alive to every profitable opportunity. After you have done this the rest will be e&B'y^ You will be surprised how willing your friends will be to cast their vote for you. Have You Ever Tried? Everybody has heard the old story of the young man who was asked if he could play the violin. "I don't know»" he said, "I never tried." This shows what self reliance Is. He had never tried, but he would not acknowl edge that he could not do It. You may never have tried to get votes, but you do not know that you may be a failure. You may develop into a "world beater," and win the $760 auto mobile or one of the diamond rings! There is no way of telling what you can accomplish without trying,. Counting of the Votes.. Many of the candidates do not know the rules regarding the counting of the votes. The campaign manager states that the votes are counted at noon Wednesday of each week for pub lication in Thursday's issue of the Sat urday News. The campaign manager is always ready to give-advlBe and in« formation pertaining to the campaign. He would be pleased to meet everyone of the candidates personally and be come better acquainted. If there are some little details of the campaign which you do not fully understand call at the campaign department of the Saturday News and get acquainted with the- campaign manager, whom you will find ready to aBsist you in every possible way.
