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.
•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
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.

Saturday News management to secure

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'

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

an opportunity to gain a good start
A few days' work is all that is need

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
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
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.
